    What You Must Do to Scale Your Business with Miha Matlievski | Episode #61

    What You Must Do to Scale Your Business with Miha Matlievski | Episode #61

    Today’s guest is no stranger to A Life and a Living Podcast. We’ve heard from him before and I’m thrilled to have him back to continue learning his business strategies. Miha Matlievski has an amazing story, coming from a series of failures and working hard to keep going. 

    What I like most about Miha is his great sense of simplicity. He makes it all sound easy, although he never underestimates the amount of work involved in being a successful entrepreneur. In this episode, we discuss Miha’s focus on building systems for profitability, the key pillars to have in place to align a scalable business, and what he means by the “soft skills.” According to Miha, those soft skills are what can change things drastically for a business. Founder of Fail Coach, Miha uses his failures and comebacks to help others in their journey to scale their business and in their entrepreneurial endeavors.

    What We Talked About in This Episode:

    What it Means to Miha to be “The Fail Coach”

    Miha’s Focus on 6 and 7 Figure Entrepreneurs

    Systems in Place to Become a 4 Hour CEO

    Benefits of Systems on Profitability

    Key Pillars to Have in Place to Align a Business to Scale

    Foundational Pieces, Values, and Soft Skills That Make Growth Easier

    Preparing an Exit Strategy and Implementing Properly

    Common Big Mistakes Made by Entrepreneurs

    Pivoting and Adopting Change When Needed

    Routines That Prepare You For Whatever Comes Your Way

    Learning and Growing As an Entrepreneur: It is Always Possible to Learn

    Business is Not Complex

    Going One Step Deeper to Grow From Each Lesson

    Mindfulness to Boost Energy

    “Miha in Your Pocket”

    Miha’s Book Recommendation and Daily Routines

    About Our Guest:

    One business coach has forged his approach to helping entrepreneurs and business executives by using a monumental personal failure and eventual redemption to help get others where they need to go to find their personal success and fulfillment. As he himself experienced, dealing with the psychological and emotional aspects of success and failure is crucial, according to Miha. While he admits that entrepreneurs want growth, scalability, more sales, etc. he says what they really need is the right mindset, a healthy relationship with failure, emotional intelligence (“EQ”), mindfulness and other “soft skills.”

    Fail Coach Miha Matlievski has been featured in numerous publications, both online and in print, and is full of stories about his own personal background, his approach to working with clients and what they have achieved with his help. Offering a more holistic approach to business coaching than what is typically available to entrepreneurs and business executives across the globe, the story of The Fail Coach will no doubt appeal to many.

    Insights from Work with Critical Teams and Strategic Projects Part 1 with John O’Gorman | Episode # 60

    Insights from Work with Critical Teams and Strategic Projects Part 1 with John O’Gorman | Episode # 60

    Normally on A Life and a Living Podcast, I have a guest that I am interviewing. This episode, however, we are doing something slightly different. Yes, I have a guest. But it is less of an interview and more of a conversation with my friend and colleague, John O’Gorman.

    John and I work closely with many teams around the world and today we are sharing some observations from working with these teams. We use the metaphor of a PitStop as you will know from Formula 1. What happens in a PitStop can determine a win or a loss in the race. As in a Pitstop in F1 you have to slow down coming into the Pitstop and then accelerate with care coming out of it.. So what does that mean for the team? What does a pitstop actually look like? John and I discuss the purpose and the means for taking these steps back to address role clarity and priorities and how to avoid burnout and team fatigue. Especially after the last year and a half, many teams are experiencing burnout and struggling with prioritizing the right work.

    What We Talked About in This Episode:

    The Pitstop Metaphor That We Use to Improve Progress and Potential

    Slow Down to Speed Up: Important Conversations During a Pitstop

    How to Decide What Takes Priority – You Can’t Do it All at Once

    The Reality of Burnout

    Role Clarity or Lack Thereof

    Moving Dialogue to Confidence and Performance Gain

    Dealing with Ambiguity

    Key Priorities for the Immediate Return

    The Right Way of Working

    Zoom Fatigue and the Negative Impact

    Opening Meetings with the Overall Purpose to Determine Relevance

    Understanding the Impact of Engagement on Positive Progress and Momentum

    The Power of Thank You
