Welcome to Systems with Soul!
You’re probably reading this page because you’ve seen me on a workshop, training, or FB live, heard me on a podcast interview, or met me on the street and I mentioned Systems with Soul… Before I tell you more, let me ask you a couple questions.
Do you ever feel like:
- you want your business to feel solid and like you’re not scrambling so much?
- you want to make more income in an easier way?
- you want to be at the helm of this ship, not like you’re trying to cram yourself into someone else’s business model?
- you have a business that looks good from the outside, but you know on the inside, it’s a bit of a mess and you wouldn’t necessarily want to invite someone over?
- you’ve plateaued, but you’re still going like crazy and it feels like you’ve “hit an upper limit”?
Unless you’re building systems, it’s easy to stay in a place where you’re always racing against the clock.
By getting clear about where you are, you can let go of any need to be polished and perfect and simply keep building without all the mental runaround and be clear about where you’re going. With systems, it’s easier to add on and change the business without it being a huge hassle – that’s what systems are for.
With the insight of what IS working, you won’t have to dedicate extra energy or resources into what’s already solid.
You’ll gain back extra brain space because you’re no longer trying to hold all the details. Since you have places for all that knowledge and insight to go to be actioned, you can trust you won’t lose momentum when you step away.
Imagine being able to work the same amount of hours (or less!), but do MORE of what you love doing in the business while being able to serve more people that need your particular sauce of brilliance.
You will be able to slow down and enjoy the ride, rather than the process feeling like a drag.
When you expand what you’re able to do without YOU having to work more, you enable yourself to be able to make more money, expand your impact, increase your creativity in business, while kicking that annoying overwhelm gremlin out.
This is a pretty awesome place to be. Creating this reality in YOUR business is what Systems with Soul is all about.
One of the challenges in this is we’re conditioned to believe it needs to be hard.
I’m willing to bet that none of those things are why you chose to be in business. You probably have a mission that you want to fulfill and know you can make a positive impact and a difference through your work.
You may feel like you’re running constantly and not making progress, but you also know the solution is not to work harder. You might find that you’re only growing in little spurts and certainly not seeing as much growth as you feel like there could be and your business doesn’t feel as much of a fully formed business as you feel like it could.
If you’re experiencing these – don’t freak out. Every business owner goes through a version of this. This is a natural phase in the process of growing a business and one that all business owners go through and overcome. You will bump your head on the step until you realize you can climb it.
The real cause of this situation is this tendency to solve problems at a surface level rather than digging for the root cause.
When you fix a root cause, you don’t have to solve the problems… the problems simply don’t happen. Root causes are solved by putting systems in place or by shifting existing systems that are causing the problem.
When you move from applying band aids to making systemic change in your business, that’s when you relieve stress and get to work on more of the stuff you love to do (aka, the part of business that excites you the most).
There are fundamental strategies that may seem clear once you know them but aren’t always obvious ways of solving problems. In Systems with Soul we address and rework things so those problems don’t come up anymore at all.
No one started a business to be a firefighter. By building systems, you prevent the cause of fires rather than putting them out.
YOU START FROM THE GROUND UP, SHIFT ANY SYSTEMS THAT AREN’T WORKING, PUT NEW SYSTEMS IN PLACE AND THIS IS WHY IT WORKS AND IT LASTS.
“I think we all just have a limited perspective on what the actual problem is. You get a broad framework where you know everything that’s going on, but in reality, you’re too in the weeds of your business. In this work, I figured out that other business owners have the same problems that I do. Thank goodness it’s not just me.”
– Amy Young
Systems with Soul will teach you how to build systems that feel like they’re alive, full of heart and soul, and like they’re the support you can count on
(like a trustworthy and competent friend
who has your back).
You’ll learn how to run your systems the way YOU want, so you’re at the helm of the ship and not trying to cram yourself into someone else’s business model.
You’ll identify systemic issues that are holding you back and how to make shifts that don’t just make problems go away, but shift the root cause so the problem won’t happen at all.
By figuring out what’s already dialed in and running smoothly in your business, you can be clear about what areas you don’t have to devote as much focus.
You’ll also learn:
- How to dial yourself into your best decision-making process so you can make decisions more quickly and confidently.
- Improve your time and project management systems so they really work FOR you.
- How to make choices that feel aligned with your core mission, what you enjoy doing and what’s fun for you.
- Step-by-step instructions on how to hire support team members so you can get work off your plate that’s not in your Zone of Genius.
- Detailed instructions on how to make a useful budget so you can get a handle on your business finances without it sucking up all your time and be clear what you can and choose not to spend your money on.
SYSTEMS WITH SOUL IS A 9 MODULE, “CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE” PROCESS.
Each module focuses on a specific system for your business. As you get each one in place, they lend themselves to building a strong foundation on which your business can grow.
This is not an overnight solution. This is a long-term play, to experiment, find what really works and make it part of your business so it will serve you day in and day out.
All the content is available immediately.
An important question to ask yourself is: “Am I prepared to put a few hours a week over 3-6 months that will impact my business for the next 5-10 years?”
Doing this work will help your business create an impact for the next decade. Systems are powerful things that enable your work and your impact to grow and thrive.
If you’re committed to building long term business success that delivers exceptional results for your clients and allows you to live well without burning out, Systems with Soul is for you.
At 4 months in, I feel so much more on top of stuff. I know what my priorities are in my business. I go into each day much clearer about my objectives and I don’t get distracted or carried away by what is urgent. I have a much better overview on what’s important for me to be doing and what to put my focus on. Amy Young
You’re a great fit for Systems with Soul if:
You’re established in your work and what you offer. You are self motivated, can find what you need, and implement it without needing to be told what to do. You’ve found that multistep processes and specific blueprints don’t really work for you because they make you feel like you’re stuck in a box. You like to experiment and try things on for size to find what works best for you.
You’re not the best fit if:
You’re just in the beginning stages of your business, don’t know what you’re offering, don’t have a clear vision, or don’t really know what your business looks like. If systems are not a priority for you right now or you aren’t ready to look under the hood and see why things aren’t working, this isn’t going to be a good investment of your time or resources.
If you’re ready to be done spinning your wheels, you’re ready to have fun in the process and you want to make sure the systems are solid before you layer on more stuff, Systems with Soul is for you!

“A magical Disneyland of systems. It’s so great!”
“Before Systems with Soul, I was hanging out in what I call “overwhelm city.” Things were going really well in that my business was working, sustaining, and supporting me and my mission and I was making a difference but I felt I didn’t have enough hours in the day and it felt like I was always scrambling. I wanted to make my business greater without feeling stressed and resentful towards my work. I wasn’t sure why it wasn’t working. I had to face the reality that me trying to fix this on my own was going to be really painful and limiting because it’s not my strength or Zone of Genius.
In the past with coaching and business mentors, they would always help me with whatever my biggest pain point in the moment was… what’s bleeding this week. What happened was that I got Band-Aid solution for those problems without solving the deeper issue.
The big difference to me of what Systems with Souls offers is this isn’t just about fixing that One Singular Pain Point. It’s about figuring out the root cause and what is actually getting in the way.
I found a lot of honesty, transparency, and judgement-free support and ideas and acceptance for where everybody is at their own level and that was a really cool thing. Everyone was kind and kept it real. There wasn’t any business owner shame of “you should really be more on top of this.” Justine has this approach like, “let’s look at where you are and then wherever you are it’s fine, we’ll start there and you can always improve it.”
At 4 months in, I feel so much more on top of stuff. I know what my priorities are in my business. I go into each day much clearer about my objectives and I don’t get distracted or carried away by what is urgent. I have a much better overview on what’s important for me to be doing and what to put my focus on.
One huge difference is that I take weekends. My time management system is so much better and my project management system is so much better, I can safely turn off my computer and say, “okay it’s my weekend.” That was something that I never felt and even if I did it I didn’t it feel comfortable comfortable doing because of loose ends.
Seriously, when I started I didn’t realize how much stuff I was attempting to keep track of in my brain. No wonder I was overwhelmed. My brain was my only system for organization or staying on top of stuff. Absurd! I can step away and I’m not going to lose momentum. Now I have freed up so much time and brain space.
Systems with Soul is awesome and I think Justine is awesome and I honestly think any business owner will get tremendous value and find solutions and tools that will work for them.”

For a business? It’s necessary.
I think it’s difficult because now I see a lot of holes and gaps and I’m like “Man, you know, if I’d started, if I’d have done this from the beginning. I would feel more ahead because I have all of these things.” At this point, I’m now in the space of overhauling the way I get things done so I can be more efficient and hand off more and more to my team. It might be a pain now, but in the long term, it’s extremely beneficial for time and profit.
I’ll be able to scale more by having the business more organized and I’ll have more time to invest in myself, my personal time, and into other businesses. I am buying the time by having the business streamlined and efficient. The more time I have and the more efficient I am with my time, the more money I’m going to make.”

“I really can’t believe what I’ve accomplished with what has felt like minimal effort!”
“Coming to the end of 2017, I felt like “I’ve made a lot of progress, but I can’t have 2018 be just another 2017. Something has to be different so that means I’d better do something different.” I knew I needed 1:1 calls with Justine because I knew it was going to make an energetic shift.
Being in relationship with Justine in this business and Systems with Soul offer has been totally grounding for me. Justine’s ability to hold space and be incredibly encouraging and insightful has been a huge motivator. What I’ve actually accomplished has felt epic in terms of launching Sacred Unplanning. Before I started in Systems with Soul, it was the seed of an idea. Now I have this five module course that I want to run over and over again. Oh my goodness. It feels amazing. It’s crazy pants. And even more than that, I’m also starting to see where I could do add ons or customized support.
The things that Justine and I set out months ago are spot on. A lot of times I’ll go through things and I’ll have these ideas and then, two months later I feel like they don’t fit or I’m bored or whatever. This has been the opposite. The things that she and I articulated together in that 1:1 container have been so resonant and now I’m truly building the foundation that I intended to build for my business.
Something that Justine specifically told me and has really stuck with me was this idea of being a scientist and an observer of my own work to help me improve. It was kind of slipped in there and yet has made such a difference in thinking about how to deliver the content of my offers.
This idea of systematizing everything is an essential piece of it. I can’t even tell you how different it feels. This is how it’s supposed to feel. Holy smokes. It’s the difference between throwing spaghetti at the wall and having a vision and knowing where I’m going. It’s truly an energetic shift in how I’m showing up in the business. It’s mind boggling. Before, I was on what I would call “the burnout path” of continuing to charge low prices, over-delivering and undercharging. I was in this mindset that it’s never going to be enough and that I have to give it all away.
I’ve learned to do the work, slow and steady and that slow and small changes can make a big difference. Focusing your energy makes a huge positive impact. A huge takeaway for me has been focusing my energy on Sacred Unplanning. I feel freedom. Like, oh my gosh. When you’re not trying to keep 10 plates spinning, it is easier. Shocking. Holy moly, who knew?”
