    044 Delegating, Scaling & Freedom with Stacy Tuschl

    044 Delegating, Scaling & Freedom with Stacy Tuschl

    This episode is pure gold and you’re going to enjoy it as much as I did recording it. I'm joined by Stacy Tuschl, a brilliant entrepreneur and dear friend who built multiple six and seven-figure businesses while being a loving wife and mom of two beautiful daughters.
    Stacy is the author of "The Implementation Code: Unlock the Secret of Getting it All Done" and the host of The Foot Traffic Podcast. 
    We had a fantastic conversation about Stacy's journey, how she uses her values to hire, retain, celebrate and even let go of team members. Stacy talked about her fears and doubts when she started her business, how she learned to delegate and how important that was for her success. We also talk about the importance of picking a suitable model for our business, creating our teams' identity and showing them what winning looks like. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Who Stacy Tuschl is, how she started her business, and what values she built her business on
    - The three questions every entrepreneur must have a clear answer for before starting their business
    - What Stacy's core values are and how she uses them to set the pace of her business
    - According to Stacy, what the right time to hire or fire a team member is
    - How important it is to create repeatable systems and how we can use them to create great collaborators, save time and money
    For many years, Stacy was a busy solopreneur. She was the primary teacher of her music school, she would spend long hours at work and experience burnout and exhaustion. Although she didn't have kids at the time, she realized it was impossible to maintain that lifestyle if she wanted to be a mom.
    She wanted to be a successful entrepreneur and a great mom, so she learned about the importance of delegating in order to free up time and space for her to be in her zone of genius. Learning to be a master delegator was just the first step of her successful path in entrepreneurship.

    043 Get Back in the Investing Game

    043 Get Back in the Investing Game

    At the beginning of the pandemic, a thick layer of uncertainty was hovering over the market. People panicked and, just in case, pulled their money out. By March of 2020, we saw a decline of 30% in the market. Although for a short bit I freaked out, as I've been through similar situations before, I managed to check my emotions and not let them interfere in my money decisions.  
    In this episode, we will learn how to let our emotions out of our decisions around money, wealth creation and investing. We will go through the concepts of money emotion roller coaster and emotional spiral, so we can recognize their patterns and avoid them. We will also talk about wealth creation, playing the investing game with a long-term mindset and turning our money into our 24/7 employees. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why looking too close at the stock market might make us lose perspective on what is going on
    - What happens when we let our emotions interfere in our money decisions
    - How the money emotion roller coaster works, from feeling infallible to despair and starting it over again 
    - How to leave our emotions out of our financial decisions
    - What the emotional spiral is and how we can avoid falling into it
    - The two ways of going into the market
    One of the advantages of being older is that, unlike many people, I've been through times of high interest, inflation, corrections and recessions, so I know what to expect. I know first-hand the emotions that these events can generate. But most importantly, I've learned that the best way to make emotion-free money decisions is to have a process and a system designed to help us reach our goals and our custom version of financial freedom.

    042 The Biggest Lessons from 2021

    042 The Biggest Lessons from 2021

    At the end of every year, I look back at what happened in my personal and professional life, and see what I've learned from it. It is a great exercise to stimulate constant growth and evolution. So, in this episode, I'll go through the 10 lessons I learned in the last 12 months. 
    This is also an invitation for you to do the same, to check on what happened in your life in the last year, look at the things that worked, the things that didn't, and reflect on what you need to change in your life to get where you want to go and create a fulfilling life that outlives you. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why we need to celebrate micro-successes
    - How focusing too much on the achievements makes us forget about the progress 
    - The future is where your WHY is
    - Taking setbacks and mistakes as opportunities to grow and evolve
    - What is the only currency in which we should measure our wealth
    - When is the right time to start investing, and why we should go from lifestyle to income and not the other way round
    Looking back at what 2021 left us is an excellent strategy to turn 2022 into a breakthrough year for our business and personal life. The best thing we can do is take notes of what we've learned so far, and use that as the stepping stone to keep building our legacy. 
    Let's make a conscious effort to get to the next level in 2022. You are not alone - I'm here, and we have an entire community of affluent entrepreneurs to support you. Cheers!

    041 Pricing & Getting Paid Your Worth

    041 Pricing & Getting Paid Your Worth

    A question that arises very often and that most people get wrong is - how much should I charge for my services? 
    Many of us come from a commoditized industry, where we tend to swap hours for dollars, but as time is finite, that model is not scalable. So in this episode, we’ll figure out how to price our services without falling into a commodity-based conversation. We'll learn about the two sides and three main components of pricing, the four pricing levels, how to frame our services in an ROI vs. COI structure, and more. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why we tend to see that raising our pricing impacts our customers, and how we can change that mentality
    - How value and affordability should affect our pricing
    - The roles of problem-solving, position and expression in building the price we charge for our services
    - How we can use the must-haves, the nice-to-haves, and the don't-needs to establish our pricing
    - What the four levels of pricing are
    - Framing our services in an ROI versus COI structure and why we must have value-based conversations to establish our pricing
    What gets commonly forgotten when we are determining the price of our services is how it impacts our lifestyle. Although unique and entirely subjective, it is definitely a variable to consider. For instance, spending long days away from the family should be considered when determining how much our services will cost. 
    A simple yet effective formula I can suggest is: 
    Hard Costs + Desired Margin + Lifestyle Impact = Our pricing.

    040 Getting Out of Debt the Affluence Way

    040 Getting Out of Debt the Affluence Way

    Today, we talk about getting out of debt the Affluent Way. Here's the thing, debt not only slows us down on our journey of getting financial independence, but it also adds tons of pressure and unnecessary stress to our lives. 
    In this episode, we'll make a difference between a destructive and productive debt, the use and misuse of credit cards, the impact of social media on our shopping decisions, and we’ll also discuss emotional debt. I’ll share my take on Dave Ramsey's snowball and avalanche method to eliminate debt and much more. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why entrepreneurs deal with debt differently from everybody else
    - Why we need to avoid playing the payment game
    - What destructive debt is and how does differentiates from productive debt
    - What it means that all debt costs and why it’s never a good idea to sell future to buy present 
    - What the ‘screw it spending’ is and how to avoid it
    - The differences between Dave Ramsey's debt elimination method and the Affluent way to eliminate debt
    The main difference between wage earners and entrepreneurs is that wage earners can increase their income through salary raises, whereas entrepreneurs can affect both their income and manage their expenses. 
    Affluent entrepreneurs face debt on two fronts - they work on reducing it, and at the same time they focus on their wealth creation. This twofold approach might slow them down a bit on their debt reduction journey, but will accelerate their investing game, getting them closer to financial independence.

    039 Achieve Your Goals FINALLY

    039 Achieve Your Goals FINALLY

    In this episode, we will learn why goal setting is useless and why so many never achieve their goals..and what to do instead. 
    As the end of the year gets closer, it is inevitable to start thinking about the things we want to achieve in 2022. But in this episode, we will forget about goal-setting and focus on goal-getting. I will take you through a really cool framework, the Goal-Getting Triad™. We will walk through each of its parts, the right mindset to approach it, and understand what we must have in place to make it work.
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why goal-setting without a strategy is doomed to fail
    - The difference between making little progress and making a bunch of resolutions
    - Why our emotions are crucial to achieving goals
    - The three things that stand in the way between our goals and us
    - What the Goal-Getting Triad™ framework is
    - The principles of the Goal-Getting Triad™ framework and how to put it in practice
    Emotions are the perfect fuel for every plan. When we are emotionally attached to an outcome, it is unlikely that we will talk ourselves out of it. If we add personal growth to that emotional outcome, and consistently put our efforts into accomplishing that goal, that becomes who we are. Connecting and aligning that perseverance with the personal growth we are after, becomes our doing. Lastly, having that perseverance and practice in place becomes what we have. And that is my version of the Be, Do, Have model.
