People, Processes and Automation

Nick discusses a crucial part of scaling up – the art of creating solid scaleable foundations through people acquisition, implementing processes, and achieving a state of autonomy.


  • People, processes and automation are often referred to as “The Golden Triangle”. They are the fundamental underpinnings that are considered to be essential to all businesses.
  • Start with the end in mind and be clear about what you’re building towards. What is your freedom number or “get rich once” number? Next we have to formulate a plan to work towards it.
  • We must optimise foundations. This is where people, processes and automation sit. It’s also where structuring capital and investment directions sit.
  • Scale fast and build value. This is the phase by where organic growth takes places, but we supplement by adding external factors such as partnerships, joint ventures – the things that build value quickly.


‘You need to start with vision, mission and what the endgame is’

‘It’s owning the process. It’s building the team’

‘It’s about getting in front of the process and leading it, proactively’

‘Businesses that exit for the highest value are the ones where they have great people’
