Everyone gets into a funk now and then. If you find your negativity breeding more negativity, this will be exactly what you need as I share with you how to be who you need to be to the results you want.

Many people don't know that I'm a certified coach through Brooke Castillo's life coach school. Because of my training as a life coach, the unique combination of mindset and business strategy is what sets our programs apart from many others out there.

In today's episode, I'm sharing with you the exact steps I take to get out of a funk and get back on track, realigning myself with my goals and moving forward with optimism.

3 key takeaways you can expect from this episode:

1. The question you need to ask yourself when you are trying to achieve the next level of success. I'll give you an example of how I'm using this in my business to increase my monthly minimum revenue.

2. The model you can work through that will assess your thoughts and feelings, the circumstances that produce them, and the action you need to take next.

3. The critical place where most people get stuck in their thoughts, feelings, and circumstances and the mindset shift you need to make to move forward.

You might be listening to this on the go. If so, I encourage you to listen again when you can sit down and work through this powerful technique. I promise it will change your results!

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.

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

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 receive a copy of potential values you can implement within your business, DM me (tag)StacyTuschl the word VALUES and I'll send it your way.
