Without an executive assistant on your team, you are leaving money on the table by doing all the things instead of only the right things.

You thought you’d be further along in your business – more sales, more referrals, it seems like things should start to feel easier by now.

But your brain never shuts off, you’re convinced you’re always forgetting something, constantly checking your calendar, and getting interrupted by notifications.

This is not the way to run a successful business.

Imagine starting your work day and knowing exactly what you need to accomplish and even better knowing that when you get those things done, you’ll have completed tasks that are truly moving the needle.

That’s what’s possible when you have an A-player executive assistant supporting you and your productivity.

You know this is what you need. But where do you even start?
What if you spend all this time and energy trying to find and hire someone and it doesn’t work out? I've got you!

In today's episode, I'm outlining the exact system you need that will walk you through the whole process step-by-step.

3 key points about hiring an executive assistant:
1. At a very basic level, to prepare for hiring your EA you need to start with a job description. You can begin by doing a brain dump of all the things you need and want to get off your plate. Maybe it’s not a strength, takes you too much time, isn’t getting done consistently when it should be… get 30 minutes on your calendar to think through all the potential tasks an EA could do for you.

Now I want to tell you about this brand new system we’ve created for you that will take you from posting your job description to sending your star EA their offer letter. From creating a job description that attracts the right people to efficiently weeding out unqualified candidates, all the way through to crafting an offer letter that sets you and your star EA up for success, you’ll be telling all of your entrepreneurial friends about this system!

Head over to aplayerassistant.com to start this 14-day journey for yourself and the future success of your business.

You need to have an organization chart for your small business (even if you're still hiring).  When everyone reports to you there is no way to keep the expectations and communication clear.  You end up micromanaging and somehow it still seems like things aren’t getting done to your standards or your team is confused.

Imagine having a maximum of two people reporting back to you with a summary of the status of different projects. You still know about any challenges and the things are getting done. It just doesn’t come from 6 different people.

3 key insights in this episode:

1. You can have one person wearing multiple hats but you do not want multiple people sharing a position as a leader.

2. Having an effective org chart is a system including 4 phases that allow you to evaluate the right people in the right spots and plan your next steps. We'll dive into how to get started.

3. Once you have your first or revised version of your org chart, you need everyone on the same page. We'll talk in this episode about the final steps of the org chart creation system.

A strategically planned organization chart changes the whole business game when it comes to leveling up in accountability and efficiency.

You can find the video version of this training HERE inside the Scale Your Small Business Facebook group. Head over to the post using this link and comment ORG Chart to get a copy of ours to use as a model.

Welcome back to the Foot Traffic podcast!

Peak performance is something you probably hear me mention often. But not just as it relates to business. I believe that achieving peak performance for your mental and physical well being are critical to your success as a business owner and need to be prioritized.

In today's episode, I'm joined by the powerhouse co-founders and owners of Remix Fitness, Mary Cate Wampler and Tricia Goodman.

Together we dive into the benefits of physical fitness as an aspect of achieving peak performance.

3 key takeaways

1. Physical health is an incredibly effective way to put the "put your own oxygen mask on first" theory into practice. We talk about why that's especially important for business owners and Tricia makes some incredible points about the benefits of carving out the time for self-care.

2. There is a direct correlation between confidence in yourself and how you show up for your business. We talk about the detrimental effects of not making your physical health a priority.

3. We address the mindset that is sure to stand in your way and how to get around it and start prioritizing physical health no matter what your circumstances or schedule are like.

Regardless of your current level of fitness, there's something for everyone in this episode. It's packed with practical tips you can start using right now to begin experiencing the benefits of being at peak physical performance right now.

Welcome back to the Foot Traffic podcast!

Today we're talking all about entrepreneur burnout. First let me say, I've been a business owner for nearly 20 years. So of course I've experienced seasons of burnout.

Does this mean it's okay? No. It does mean the conversation around it needs to be normalized.

So that's exactly what I'm talking about here.

3 important takeaways about entrepreneur burnout:

1. To know what to do about it, first you have to know exactly what it is. I'm talking symptoms and how to know if you're experiencing entrepreneur burnout.

2. Once you identify that you're struggling, let's identify your next steps. Hint: it has very little to do with taking any actual action.

3. Most importantly you need to understand the catastrophic consequences of staying in burnout for too long.

Entrepreneur burnout is so much more than feeling tired. If this episode hits home for you, I encourage you to evaluate your situation and get help immediately. I'm offering some practical suggestions for you here too on what you can do to turn things around.

This episode is my honest review of Tony Robbins' business mastery.

It's been on my bucket list for a long time but I wasn't previously able to justify attending because it meant taking seven days away from my family. So when I had the chance to attend virtually, I jumped at it.

In this episode, I'm giving my candid feedback about whether or not this event was worth the investment by laying out all the pros and cons of the experience.

 

3 key takeaways to listen for in this episode:

1. Was it worth it? I'm sharing the action steps I always take when I attend an event like business mastery to make sure I maintain momentum and make back my investment.

2. The good, the bad, the ugly. There were some speakers that were really valuable, some repetition of basic things I needed reminders of, and one thing in particular that I really didn't like.

3. The major benefit of events versus free resources. I'm a huge fan of events versus podcasts and books for the exact reasons I'm sharing here.

 

If you have the chance to attend Business Mastery, of course, you'll have to decide for yourself if it will be worth it for you. Hopefully the pros and cons listed here will help you make an informed choice.

Profit margin is definitely one of the factors you don’t want to overlook when it comes to running a successful and sustainable business.

It can be confusing and overwhelming to figure out where to spend and invest and when to save.

You want to feel good about making smart investments in your business that keep it running smoothly and allow for a healthy profit margin.

There are a few areas I encourage you to evaluate your spending that will improve your profit margin.

In this training, I'm diving into three of the most common areas.

  • Done-for-you agencies

  • Being cheap

  • Jumping ship

You can get a more detailed list of the most common places CEO's overspend by heading over to the Facebook group and commenting on this post with the word PROFIT.

You know I'm all about systems. But how do they relate to creating confident employees? That's exactly what I'm going to dive into in today's episode.

This brilliant idea comes from a conference I attended recently. Even though I already implement so much system strategy, I chose to go to the systems breakout session because I always believe I can learn more and be even just a little bit better.

The system I'm sharing here proves that point.

3 important points on creating confident employees:

1. Promoting confidence also means encouraging problem solving. The strategy I'm sharing here outlines how to do both.

2. Why significant company values is critical for the success of this strategy.

3. What you need to evaluate about your own role in order to encourage ownership and accountability.

To really work efficiently and see the growth or even simply consistency you need to run a sustainable, profitable business, you absolutely need to set boundaries on your time and energy.

So in today's episode, we’re talking about exactly How to Protect Your Time by Saying No (without sounding like a jerk).

As a small business owner, you get a lot of different types of requests from a variety of sources and you’re a nice person so you say “yes” even when you need and want to say “no.”

  • You think saying yes to everything will mean more business.
  • You end up pulled in a million directions and feeling scattered.
  • Your productivity suffers.

Time that could be spent on your vision, goals, and revenue-generating activities goes down the drain because of other people’s requests.

Imagine how things could change if you knew exactly what to say to requests that aren’t the best use of your time without hurting anyone’s feelings or burning any bridges.

In this episode you'll learn how to:

  1. Say no graciously – you can say no and still communicate that you appreciate that they reached out/thought of you/sent an invitation.

  2. Blame it on your schedule – even if you realistically have “some space” the idea is you’re protecting your time and energy for the activities and tasks that light you up and actually need to get done.

  3. Refer them to your resources – granting requests is a great way to generate business and can be accomplished while still protecting your time. Refer them to your paid or free resources so they can keep in touch with you and familiarize themselves with your offers.

It is possible to maintain boundaries on your time and energy while also keeping relationships and building new ones.

This one's for the parents. Balancing work and family life is never easy but somehow we have this idea that we will feel less "mom guilt" as an entrepreneur because we have more control over our schedules.

Then reality sets in, you're busier than you thought you would be, and you find yourself questioning if you're spending enough time with them.

I travel a lot and I've had a lot of people asking if I experience mom guilt while I'm away.

So I'm diving in today to the strategies I use, both practical and mindset, for finding that elusive work/life balance without the mom guilt.

3 tips for overcoming working mom guilt:

1. I like to use the perspective that time spent with our kids is more about quality than quantity. I'm very intentional about using the time that I spend with my family to be fully present.

2. I'm very confident in the experiences we're creating for our family and part of that means honoring my own interests, including traveling and learning.

3. Don't compare yourself to others. This is a big one! Figure out what works for you when it comes to finding balance and overcoming the guilt.

Keeping that third point in mind, I hope this episode gives you some insight into how you can run your business successfully without sacrificing time and relationships with your kids. And be sure you listen to the end, because I have a special request.

It's possible to create company values that actually mean something and that can assist you in delegating responsibility to your team.

Maybe you don’t have established company values or you don’t know how to use them for anything significant. You might have just grabbed some words that sounded good and put them together. Maybe your team isn't aware of them or they don't play a part in your decision-making within your business.

3 key takeaways to listen for in this episode:

1. Two key factors that will guide you in choosing your best values.

2. Important ways you can use your company values for hiring, rewarding, and letting go within your team.

3. The exact way I use our company values to allow my business to run without me.

Company values should be the foundation of your decision making and be clearly represented within your team and your customer-facing work. I hope this episode gets you one step closer to making that your reality.

Stop micromanaging. It's truly a significant waste of your time and money. And yet so many small business owners find it difficult not to micromanage.

In today's episode, I'm sharing with you exactly how your micromanaging is costing you and more importantly what you can do about it.

I want to also say, if you find yourself micromanaging, don't be too hard on yourself about it. We've all been there. Micromanaging is a sign that your work is important to you and it matters that things get done to a certain standard. That's a good thing.

But you can channel that passion into productivity rather than micromanaging every little task.

Here are three important points I'm making in this episode:

1. What you risk losing if you continue micromanaging.

2. The number one reason you're probably micromanaging and what you can do instead to get the same results.

3. The system that allows progress to be tracked and holds team members accountable without micromanaging.

 

I hope this episode inspires you to realize that micromanaging starts with good intentions but it is costing you and helps you realize that there are steps you can put in place to create a system that works better for everyone.

My most productive time is before everyone else is up for the day. I often get asked about my morning routine that sets me up for success. So in today's episode, I'm sharing exactly what I do in my morning routine as a 7-figure entrepreneur of multiple businesses.

This morning routine is all about getting in the right mindset to follow through with my intentions and take care of myself physically so I can be in peak performance mode as much as possible.

Three key elements of a successful morning routine:

1. A consistent wake-up time -- I'll share how I wake up early enough to take advantage of time before the kids are up but in a way that is gentle on our biological rhythms. Blaring alarm clock? No thank you. To get Stacy's wake up clock click here.

2. Hydration -- but first, water. I'll share why this is one of the first things I do and my thoughts on the bulletproof coffee trend.

3. Mindset -- I'll share the journaling and writing I do to commit to the priorities for the day and the unconventional way I write my intentions.

Does your morning routine need a reboot? I hope you'll try some of these tips to boost your productivity. I'm not perfect with this morning routine, of course. But I definitely feel the impact when I don't stick with it so I can guarantee it works.

People are always asking how I move so quickly and how I get new offers to take off so fast. Today I'm going to break down what that looks like.

I pay to get things done quickly because the internet moves at lightning speed, marketing messages change, offers need to change. You've got to keep up or by the time you've implemented something that strategy is out of date.

In today's episode I'm sharing all the ways that I pay for speed and why I make it a priority to invest in my business.

Three key points to listen for:

1. Where I make the choices to be reserved with my budget and where I refuse to settle for the cheapest option.

2. One of the most important investments I make is in my own growth and learning. I'll share the resources I buy and why it's so important.

3. How investing in a team makes a huge difference in getting things done quickly if you know how to do it effectively.

I want this episode to shift your perspective away from being unable to afford outsourcing or investing in professional development. If you're not paying for the ability to grow faster, you're paying for it in lost revenue.

There are so many reasons why an executive assistant needs to be your next hire. Today in this episode recorded from a live training in our Scale Your Small Business Facebook group, I'm sharing the top 3 reasons to hire an EA.

I always say if you don't have an assistant, you are the assistant.

You don't have time to be doing assistant level tasks. You are leaving money on the table setting your own appointments and checking your own email.

3 key takeaways from this episode:

  • Hiring a local executive assistant who can take on tasks in person has so many benefits. I'm sharing some examples of how my full-time EA helps support my business.
  • I'll share examples of what an executive assistant job description should look like so it will allow whoever steps into the role can grow along with it.
  • An understanding of the incredible ways your EA will save you time and even more importantly, how you should be using that time you'll be getting back.

Hiring an executive assistant is by far one of the best things I've done for myself and my business. I know this live training episode will show you why an executive assistant needs to be your next hire.

I've been getting a lot of questions about raising prices because of inflation. Raising our prices can be so difficult, but inflation is a very real thing right now, prices are going up everywhere so we shouldn't be afraid as small business owners to do the same.

In today's episode I'm addressing all the questions you have about whether or not to raise your prices because of inflation and how to go about it.

Three key takeaways from this episode:

1. One of the biggest questions I get is whether or not you need to make an announcement about raising your prices. I'm sharing my best advice here.

2. Another thing people worry about is making their current customers mad or losing business. I'll tell you exactly what you need to be considering to make sure this isn't a problem.

3. When you decide to raise your prices because of inflation there are some practical steps you need to take. I'll share with you exactly what you need to do.

Just like anything you decide to change in your small business, raising your prices can be intimidating. But I promise it will bring huge benefits to your bottom line. And during times of inflation, you can't afford not to.

Vulnerable share alert here. You might be surprised to find out that my biggest weakness is also one of my greatest strengths. If you've been around awhile, you know I'm a very driven person. I've received numerous awards for reaching milestones some people only dream of.

So how is this a weakness? I'm sharing it all with you here in this episode.

I'll go into more detail. But, turns out, that being driven also means I'm often left feeling unfulfilled or unsatisfied by my own success.

Three key points in this episode:

1. The words a friend shared with me as I reflected on my successes and the goals I've set for myself and narrowly missed. How we show up for ourselves in our thoughts matters and my friend's insight helped shift my perspective.

2. Why I feel it's important to share this insight and reflection with you. I know I can't be the only one who is always striving for more.

3. Some words of encouragement to help you (and me) appreciate and acknowledge the success we experience.

Whether you celebrate your milestones or like me you find it difficult to feel accomplished, I hope this episode inspires you to truly feel more appreciation for all of your wins.

In today's episode, we're going to get you from confused and overwhelmed about tracking metrics in your small business to clear and confident in the three most important areas and how to get started.

Many CEOs end up tracking tasks or responsibilities that don't really shed any light on the actual health and growth of the business. This mini training from our Facebook Live will change that so you are creating metrics that directly reflect your critical number.

Three key takeaways to look forward to:

1. The three most crucial areas in your business that need metrics.

2. How many items to track is reasonable.

3. Who needs to be responsible for metrics, how they get reported, and when.

Getting a handle on which metrics to track will get you well on your way to smoother operations and a clearer picture of where you need to adjust or revise your processes or marketing.

I was thankful to recently have an article published on Forbes by today’s podcast guest, Melissa Houston, life coach, founder of The Business Society, and CPA.

If you’ve ever wondered what the benefit is of hiring a CPA or a fractional CFO, Melissa is pulling back the curtain in this conversation on who you need, what to look for, and why having someone manage the finances of your business is critical to your success.

Three important key points to listen for in this episode:

  1. The unconventional place Melissa starts with her clients before building a financial plan.

  2. Who you need to hire and the differences between a bookkeeper, CPA, and fractional CFO. And the critical importance of not going with the cheapest option.

  3. Number one tip for challenging and unpredictable economic times. How much do you need in reserves? How can you thrive during times of inflation? We cover it all.

More than anything, my wish is that this conversation brings you hope that no matter what financial situation you find yourself in, there’s no reason to feel shame or guilt around it. We can’t be awesome at everything! That’s why it’s so great to have people like Melissa to guide us along the way.

The CEO life can be exhausting because we are required to continuously be growing and changing. But with the right mindset, outlook, and resources becoming the next level version of the CEO you want to be, transforms from a challenge into an opportunity.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing how you can seize that opportunity with 3 ways to continuously become a next level CEO.

The key points to listen for:

  1. Time away is essential. I recorded this while our family was on vacation in Florida. Everyone needs the opportunity to be able to step away from daily responsibilities to get a clearer picture of what your priorities are when you return.

  2. Tips and tricks to use and questions to ask yourself while you have time to yourself to really maximize your role as the CEO.

  3. The huge part that jealousy and faith play in the process of creating a vision of who you need to be and what you need to do to make it happen.

 

These three key points are important. But also make sure to listen in for one of the most crucial elements to a true commitment to continuous growth. You really need this one thing to see a big difference.

Getting your team more accountable is one of the most commonly requested topics I get asked to talk about.

In this episode, I’m using the analogy of team members with a “renter” mentality versus those who feel a sense of ownership in your business.

How do we maximize who you have and get them to ownership status?

Three key points to listen for:
  1. Before you can do anything else, you need to be clear on what it is you need them to take accountability for. You may even need to work on your mindset first to get to a point where you want to delegate more responsibility.

  2. Rather than tasks, you need to create the opportunity for clear accountability with systems. I dive into more detail of what that looks like and where to start.

  3. The three resources you must have in place in order for your delegation of accountability to truly be successful.

Lastly, you won't want to miss the final key point I make about what will make the most difference in building a team of accountable owners rather than renters. And the good news is, this one is entirely within your control.

Three key takeaways from this episode to listen for:
