Robbie, Rowena and Eugene and their friends are on a Pride march.

Rowena identifies as bisexual and Robbie’s company promotes equality, inclusivity and diversity. They’re having a blast showing their support for their friends, colleagues and family in the LGBTQIA+ community.


Now that Robbie has more time for the fun things in life, he and Rowena can finally take a holiday.

It’s their first trip away together and they’ve loved seeing all the sights, including the Statue Of Liberty, World One Trade Center and Central Park.

This is the first of many exciting adventures for this loved-up pair!


Robbie and Rowena love to give back to their community in small or big ways. As fur parents, they decided to celebrate international cat’s day by volunteering in a cat shelter.

They cleaned the cages and litter boxes, fed the cats, and played with them all day long. Yes, all day. That’s how much time you can spend on other things when you have your business automated.

Should they adopt a new playmate for Sally the dog?


Robbie and Rowena are now planning their wedding.

With so much time on their hands, they can now check out different wedding venues, and Robbie can accompany Rowena in trying out some of the wedding gowns at any time.

Let’s help Robbie and Rowena pick their wedding venue!

Will it be a garden or a beach wedding?


Despite being busy with the upcoming wedding, Robbie and Rowena took a quick break in their wedding planning to support and create a social impact.

Robbie planned a fur-friendly (and Robo-animal friendly) party in support of World Animal Welfare Day for the 4th of October.

Robbie and Rowena together with their Robo-friends, their Robo-dogs, and Robo-cats celebrated World Animal Welfare Day.


While the business is running on autopilot, Robbie and Rowena had time to come up with a simple Halloween party.

They carved some pumpkins and decorated the room with cobwebs and other Halloween-themed things.

Robbie and Rowena danced the night away and topped it off with a few drinks.

Happy Halloween! ๐ŸŽƒ

Robbie and Rowena in front of the computer with invitations


Robbie and Rowena are back to their wedding preparations!

Now that the venue and the date are finalised, it’s time to send out the invitations!

Because they love automation so much, they’ve automated their entire invitation and RSVP process. Invitees are directed to a landing page to RSVP. And then using automation, the final guest list and their food preferences are collected in a small database.

They have also automated the countdown and save-the-date email sequence.

How cool is that? A techy wedding it is!

Review and improve before you automate…

What better way to celebrate No-Code Month than to use it as an opportunity to do some process improvement to make sure you have the right apps for your business, you’re using them optimally and you’ve automated your manual and repetitive tasks?

Follow these steps:

  1. Make a list of the apps you use in the business, their purpose, and the subscription costs.
  2. Ask yourself if your apps are fit for purpose, and trial new apps if needed.
  3. Review app features and optimise how you’re using the app where possible, to reduce costs and enhance what you are paying for.
  4. Explore native integrations with your apps to understand how you can reduce manual entry, repetitive tasks and errors between your apps.
  5. Fill the gaps with custom workflows using Zapier.

In summary, review your apps and processes, optimise them and only then should you automate your tasks. Repeat this review regularly.

Do you review your apps and processes regularly?
