Why Blend In When You Were Born To Stand Out with Tisha Marie Pelletier
On this episode of the Tandem Talks Podcast, Carrie and Craig speak with Tisha Marie Pelletier, author, podcast host, Chief Experience Officer at Tisha Marie Enterprises, and Founder of Property with Personality. Starting the journey of entrepreneurship is not a clean cut process. It takes grit and persistence because nobody gets it 100% right at the first try.
Tisha shares some tips for aspiring entrepreneurs who are thinking of making their side hustles their main businesses, including the importance of mentorship and the multifaceted benefits of investing in yourself. She explains that focusing on skills that you enjoy and delegating the rest makes you a badass entrepreneur primarily because you enjoy what you are doing.
For Tisha, letting your authenticity shine comes back in more ways than you could ever imagine. This benefits in creating meaningful connections while networking and it also helps in solidifying who and what your personal brand is all about. Your personal brand is something you carry with you and this is especially relevant to solopreneurs and small companies.
Coaching Business Leaders Through Change And Growth with Pete Mohr
On this episode of the Tandem Talks Podcast, Carrie and Craig speak with Pete Mohr, President and Owner of Shoetopia Footwear, Entrepreneurial Coach at Simplifying Entrepreneurship, and Founder of Liquidation Roadshow.
Entrepreneurs are made, not born. And to become successful, Pete suggests that aspiring entrepreneurs ask questions on how things are done today and think of how to do it better. Pete follows 4 P's: People, Processes, Products and Profit that have helped him become the "multipreneur" that he is today.
He teaches that you need to have clarity on the product you are offering and the solutions it actually delivers. There is always room to grow and when you realize that something isn't working, you must let it go.
Every single entrepreneur has the same 24 hour in a day. Being bogged down by emotional attachments to pet projects is simply not effective and Pete further suggests finding a coach who understands the stage your business is in to be truly effective.
How To Build A Multi-Million Dollar Consulting Biz & Why You DO NOT Need Calendly with Nathan Flood
On this episode of the Tandem Talks Podcast, Craig speaks with Nathan Flood, Co-Founder and CEO at STENCLD and Hexalinks Solutions Business Consulting. Side hustling was always close to Nathan's heart and his success story is unique in that he didn't need to sell his assets to get started.
By building skill sets, being the main sales person in the beginning, and outsourcing tasks and processes, he was able to secure project after project until his side hustles were employing 70 people at one time.
His side hustles would evolve into full businesses worth millions of dollars. Nathan learned that there are ways to scale faster by focusing on less time-consuming tasks and making sure he hires people who want to grow along with you.
Nathan shares his experiences with integrating software into his business and the need to add them as the need comes along, not as an infrastructure that's set in stone. This allows your company to adapt to rapid changes and to get the most functionality from these different tools.
This podcast has been engaging and informative. Carrie and Craig are relatable hosts and have brought together an interesting group of guests to share knowledge and experience. Time well spent!
