What’s up everybody! This week I’m joined by Gareth Pronovost, Airtable consultant, founder of GAP Consulting, and creator of Airtable Automation Machine. He’s here to share his course creation story and how Airtable Automation Machine helps businesses build databases and automate their workflows.

When we automate processes we can focus on doing the stuff that we love and work less.

Having been a financial analyst in a billion-dollar public company, Gareth knows the burden of spending countless hours doing reports manually on spreadsheets. This slow and inefficient process prevented him from doing the work he should have been focusing on. Then, Airtable came to his rescue.

With Airtable, Gareth was able to automate his workflow, organize data, and eliminate long hours of manual work. Now with GAP Consulting, he’s helped hundreds of business owners do the same. His course, Airtable Automation Machine, helps entrepreneurs optimize their Airtable setup, integrate business process, and train their team on Airtable on their own schedule.

Join us to hear how he turned his high-touch consulting process into a detailed course, and how he’s helping business owners focus on the work they love.

"It is important to boil things down into as few touch points as possible."

"If you provide value then there is invariably a large number of people that's going to hire you."

"This idea that I need to sit at a desk for 8 hours in order to provide value is fundamentally wrong."
