A Note From Russ Perry

“When you’re starting from nothing, there are no bad habits to overcome.”


There are no employees to retrain. It’s a clean slate across the board. Design Pickle was wide open to document as little or as much as I wanted. Thankfully, I decided to go with the latter option.

Thinking about the past challenges, I knew I wanted to have an operations manual from the beginning. If I was going to create a business that was truly valuable (and channeling my inner Michael Gerber), I wanted the type of company that thought carefully and documented the processes along the way.

So, I set off to find a tool that could help. My requirements for my company manual were simple:

  • Everything had to be online, and easily accessed in the cloud
  • Creating content had to be as easy as Google Docs
  • Editing and finding content also had to be a no-brainer
  • I wanted something my team could use without much training
  • The price had to be relatively affordable

It didn’t take long for me to decide on Trainual. In addition to knocking down all of my requirements, a close friend was behind the software. I knew I’d be supported (and then some) by implementing this into our world.

Years later, and hundreds of processes documented, refined, and improved inside the walls of Trainual, I now have enough experience to share what I wish I knew starting out.

Creating an operations manual for your business is no small undertaking, but there are specific things to know through the process to not only turn your operation into a well-oiled machine but to ensure you don’t lose your mind along the way.
