Orgasmic Operations with Veronica Yanhs


Operations is so much about pleasure because we're not AI robots operating our business. We're humans who are complex, emotional, multifaceted beings. Operations should be humanized. That's why people are the first pillar of my orgasmic operations framework.

Episode Summary:

On this episode, we have a very special guest, Veronica Yanhs, the CEO and Founder of Business Laid Bare. Veronica is an operations specialist and helps CEOs reach true freedom in their business with orgasmic operations.

In addition to the wealth of knowledge and experience she brings from her studies at Stanford University and experience consulting with major global brands like Nike and Apple, Veronica is openly kinky and she weaves kink all through her business.

She is a fabulous case study in “letting your freak flag fly.” If you're a business owner struggling to incorporate your whole self into your brand, Veronica is a great person to learn from.

In this episode, Veronica shares her thoughts on why a virtual assistant might not be your best first hire and offers advice on when it’s better to hire experts instead of VAs. She also breaks down the systems you should prioritize when you’re first starting out and shares ways you can “Vacation-proof” your business.

There are so many gems in this episode. I’m excited to bring you this conversation today with a fellow systems nerd. Enjoy.
