    Do you want to make a profit...or a difference? with Yanik Silver

    Do you want to make a profit...or a difference? with Yanik Silver

    When it comes to scaling, you ever feel stuck between making a profit...and making a difference?
     
    It’s understandable. Most people assume that scaling a business (or just business in general) is an every-man-for-himself situation. Either you fight your way to the top and focus on profit alone, or you’re a bleeding heart who sacrifices money to help others.
     
    But that’s totally the wrong way to look at it.
     
    In fact, if you really want to grow your company to a high-level, you HAVE to focus on how you’re helping people! Your market, audience, and clientele are the very people who will launch you forward.
     
    No one knows this better than today’s guest on the Scale or Fail Show...
     
    Yanik Silver is the founder of Maverick1000, a private, invitation-only global network of top entrepreneurs and industry leaders. This group periodically assembles for breakthrough retreats, rejuvenating experiences, and most importantly, global impact opportunities - to date raising over $3M+ with participating icons.
     
    Yanik’s lifetime goal is to connect visionary leaders and game changers to catalyze business models and new ideas for solving 100 of the world’s most impactful issues by the year 2100.
     
    Basically, he’s an expert at scaling a profitable business and using it to make a beneficial impact on the world...and on today’s episode, he’s sharing how he does it.

    How To Stand Out In A Saturated Market...And Thrive

    How To Stand Out In A Saturated Market...And Thrive

    In 2019, Americans spent about $7.2 billion dollars in the pet industry.
     
    I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you. Most people see and treat their dogs as part of their family. 
     
    I know I love my little bulldog with all my heart - who knows how much I’ve spent on her!
     
    For pet-centered businesses, this means there’s a lot of demand... 
     
    And it also means there’s a lot of competition.
     
    So if you want to make it in the pet industry (or any saturated market, really) you need to become very creative and super resilient. 
     
    That’s why I am so excited to share today’s guest on the Scale Or Fail Show, Candace D’Agnolo.
     
    Candace D’Agnolo has been in the pet industry for over 16 years and has successfully translated her passion for pets into multiple million-dollar businesses. She’s the founder of Pet Boss Nation, a coaching and consulting community for pet businesses who want to increase profits through inventory planning, cash flow road maps, marketing, goal setting and more. 
     
    Candace is nothing less than an expert at what she does. She knows exactly how to deal with the unique problems facing pet-based business, but her strategies and tips are helpful for business owners of any industry (especially those in retail!).
     
    If you’re looking for a success story, Candace is it - and she’s more than willing to share exactly what she’s done to get there. 
     
    Make sure to tune in!

    Acquiring and Selling Small Businesses with Marshall Doyle

    Acquiring and Selling Small Businesses with Marshall Doyle

    If you’re like most small business owners, you probably don’t think about selling your company very often - and you probably think even less about buying others.
     
    After all, you’re not planning on leaving your business anytime soon… and acquisition sounds like something that’s only for “big league” corporations and enterprises, right? 
     
    Wrong!
     
    Business is a long-term game. Even if you’re not ready to sell or buy right now, you need to be thinking ahead. 
     
    You have to plan for where you’re going, not where you’re at.
     
    I’ll be honest, it’s not an easy process (for either side). I myself have left thousands of dollars on the table by preparing incorrectly or not at all.
     
    And that’s why I’m so excited to have today’s guest on The Scale or Fail Show.
     
    Marshall Doyle is the CEO of Cal-Cert Calibration Certification, the country’s largest independent provider of calibration services serving the construction materials industry. Under Marshall’s leadership, he has grown this worldwide company nearly 2000% percent since he took control in 1999 (which is one of the many reasons he was awarded Oregon’s 2019 SBA Small Business Person of the Year).
     
    But in addition to growing Cal-Cert, he’s acquired and sold MANY other companies on the side. 
     
    He’s in love with what he calls “the business of business!”
     
    After having gone through the process so many times himself, Marshall is an expert at buying and preparing businesses to sell, and now teaches and mentors small businesses across the US how to do it with his proprietary process, Small Business Coaching LLC.
     
    And today he’s sharing his biggest tips - so you can do it, too.
     
    Marshall is an all-around fantastic resource for business owners. This is a must-listen for anyone planning on buying or selling a business, no matter what phase of growth you’re in right now.

    How to Build a Purpose-Based Business with Ajit Nawalkha

    How to Build a Purpose-Based Business with Ajit Nawalkha

    The single most important thing you need to possess  as a business owner is a vision - or in other words, a sense of purpose. And not just any purpose, either.
     
    You need a big, grand, take-your-breath-away vision. Something that lights your soul on fire, that gets you up every morning, and motivates you to push through times of confusion, discomfort, frustration, and even crisis.
     
    It’s purpose that will continually take you and your business to the next level.
     
    But… how do you find that purpose? 
     
    How do you make sure it’s not just fulfilling and joyful, but also viable and profitable? 
     
    And most importantly, how do you maintain that level of business passion??
     
    If you want to go big with your company, you must answer these questions. That’s why this week on The Scale or Fail Show, Allison Maslan brings on a total expert on “going big” - Ajit Nawalkha.
     
    Ajit is a highly-successful entrepreneur, CEO of Mindvalley Publishing, Co-founder of Global Grit Institute, Coach, and Best-Selling author. Having been through more than a few business journeys of his own, he specializes in helping business owners manifest their true power and create the life of their dreams. 

    And today, he joins Allison to talk about his latest book Live Big: The Entrepreneur's Guide to Passion, Practicality, and Purpose - which will help you do it yourself.

Decomposed Diva ,

Generously Educational

In this age of over saturation where “coaching” is concerned, it’s easy to hear a ton of experts talking but not really sharing. Allison Maslan ALWAYS shares in a way that’s meaningful and generous in terms of actionable strategy. She’s never stingy with insights and advice. Maybe more impressively, she gets her guests to commit to doing the same!
