Ode to Johnny Lunchbucket
I wanna share a little story about Johnny Lunchbucket. This has to do with the “Be Ready” part of RondaReady. And that has to do with your schedule. And being consistent and predictable. It’s about accomplishing your goals. And focus. On where you want to go. In your personal and your business life.
Johnny Lunchbucket was one of the first people I worked with.
He knew he needed processes. Because he could bring in the clients. He was a great rainmaker. But then they fell through the cracks. And without the right follow-up, he was losing them.

And he wouldn’t run things “on the fly” anymore. And he thought his creativity would vanish into thin air. Because that’s what he figured a predictable routine does to creativity.
But what he found out was…
with a predictable routine…processes and procedures in place…a whole new level of organization, he didn’t just hang onto the clients he worked so hard to get. He also got lots more referrals and repeat business. AND…
He actually had more time to be creative. (cue the crowd cheers)
He wasn’t re-doing all that work anymore. And overdoing. And he didn’t have to figure out what he forgot the day before. He didn’t have to spend so much time making up for lost time due to a lack of processes. Nothing to cover the day-to-day operations.
My RondaReady business coach CRM system puts all that together for you and with you. Because a BIG part of being an entrepreneur is creativity. But you can’t get to that level unless you take care of the day-to-day stuff. And don’t worry about being a Johnny Lunchbucket.
So, when you’re ready to do that, you’re really, really ready to get ready, get RondaReady and…
