For today’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast, we are joined by Mike Michalowicz – author, speaker and entrepreneurial rockstar! (or as Simon Sinek describes him “…the top contender for the patron saint of entrepreneurs). By his 35th birthday Mike had founded and sold two multi-million dollars companies. Confident that he had the formula to success, he became a small business angel investor… and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Mike has devoted his life to the research and delivery of innovative, impactful entrepreneurial strategies to you. Mike is the creator of Profit First, which is used by hundreds of thousands of companies across the globe to drive profit. He is the creator of Clockwork, a powerful method to make any business run on automatic. He is the author of seven books, including his newest book, Get Different, which teaches entrepreneurs how to create marketing that can't be ignored. Mike believes entrepreneurs are superheroes (because they support the world!) and that the entrepreneurial dream is achievable, even in this economy.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! What I’m thinking about today are dots. As you are on the journey of your career there are all these dots along the way and when you look back you can see the things that are major, and minor, and you can see they are dots, and you are able to connect those dots. Sometimes as you are going through things you don’t know why things are happening and my question for you today is, “What if these are the dots?” They might not make sense to us right now, but fast-forward into the future these are the dots and we’ll be able to connect them, and they will all make sense as a part of the journey. Try not to overanalyze anything now, but instead trust the process and it will all make sense as you grow into your future. The Team Maker Formula is a 10-module “go-at-your-own-pace” course that will walk you through finding your next best hire. You can buy it here: https://ievolveconsulting.com/how-to-build-your-dream-team-master-class/ If you are interested in learning more about our programs, Business Builder group, the Entrepreneur Empowerment Evolution group, or just want to say hello then please fill out this form and we will get in touch with you https://ievolveconsulting.com/are-you-ready-to-evolve/ And as always, if you have any questions, you can email us directly at yourock@ievolveconsulting.com.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! Today I am sharing two tips for time efficiencies as you are thinking about your 2022 calendar planning. The first strategy is what I call “A-B.” This is when you have either days or weeks labeled as “A” days/weeks or “B” days/weeks. For example, your “A Day” will be highly intensive and business-focused day. This is when you take meetings, network, record podcasts, whatever you need to do for your business. Then “B Day” will be less business, but instead more downtime for you. This will be strategic thinking or catching up on email – things that do not require meetings or client-facing activities. I hope this sparks a good strategy for “on-days” and “off days.” The second strategy is time blocking a “CEO Day” for you. For me, I do it every Friday and it is a dedicated day where no meetings are scheduled and you take time to officially regroup. You might not even be spending time in the business, but on other things for self-care like coaching, continued learning, hobbies, etc. Hopefully one, or both, of these tactics can be useful in your business and help reduce the overwhelmed feeling and make your time more efficient and valuable. From today through Cyber Monday, we are offering this $1,497 course for just $197. That is savings of $1,300! You can purchase this course here: https://ievolveconsulting.com/how-to-build-your-dream-team-master-class/ And as always, if you have any questions, you can email us directly at yourock@ievolveconsulting.com.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! Today I want to talk about Black Friday because often when you think of Black Friday you don’t necessarily think of deals for service-based businesses. This is a great opportunity to make an incredible offer to your community to bring in extra cash flow before year-end. Your audience knows and trusts you and wants to buy from you – so what can you give them as a special to take them off the edge and bring them into your community and your experience? Here at iEvolve we are offering an irresistible deal for our Team Maker Formula course. Do you have a process for hiring? Are you looking for your next best hire? The biggest pain point I see for entrepreneurs is hiring and that’s why I developed this program. The Team Maker Formula, a 10-module ‘go-at-your-own-pace’ course, walks you through an audit of your company, examining the 7 pillars of your company, and helps you step-by-step to determine your next best hire. From today through Cyber Monday, we are offering this $1,497 course for just $197. That is savings of $1,300!

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! Today I am sharing some thoughts on the importance of being part of a mastermind and/or peer-advisory roundtable (same thing – different name depending on the group!). I have been part of one since 2009 and I would never have gotten to this point in my life and businesses without having a group of like-minded entrepreneurs to hold me accountable, challenge me and provide a safe place to be vulnerable. So, what are these groups? They are typically a small group of people in non-competing industries or similar companies in different geographic locations – never competing companies. They are there for you to have a seat and give yourself time to sit and process things on a monthly basis. These masterminds are where you show up to be you, process a leadership topic and do a clarifying segment where you can uncover any issues that need to be processed and help you find clarity. Whatever you are looking for, please know this is something that should be good for you. These groups need to be a space for you to be open and honest so you can get the most out of it for you. If you have any questions, I encourage you to check out iEvolve’s two groups - the Business Builder Mastermind Group, which are for new entrepreneurs looking to climb that mountain, or the Entrepreneur Empowerment Evolution group, which is for seasoned professionals continuing up the mountain with new goals and benchmarks. At every level you need somebody to help you, so I encourage you to look into them and reach out with any questions. If you are interested in learning more about our programs, Business Builder group, the Entrepreneur Empowerment Evolution group, or just want to say hello then please fill out this form and we will get in touch with you https://ievolveconsulting.com/are-you-ready-to-evolve/ We want to hear from YOU!

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! Today we are sharing some inspiration about focusing on the good! When you focus on the good, the good turns to great, but when you focus on the bad, the bad turns to worse. This is such a simple reminder about mindset, positive energy, self-awareness, and mindfulness that relates back to focusing on the good. Good turns to great and when you stay in the positive lane you will find that these positive and happy things in life will multiply and evolve. However, when you focus on the bad, those things tend to spiral and become overwhelming. As the year comes to an end and the holidays approach, it’s always a great reminder to focus on the good and watch it turn to great!

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip in 5 minutes or less! Today we are going to do some visualization and I want you to dream bigger than your fears by painting a picture of your dream company. The best way to do this is to map out your dream organizational chart – what does your dream team look like? Put everything on your dream organizational chart that you can think of – map out the boxes and lines and everything you want. I want you to look at is your existing employee count right now and multiply that number of employees by five and then multiple your existing count by 10. I want you to see if you multiplied your employee count by 5x or 10x what it would like. Now, we can bridge the two and I want you to see your dream organizational chart and what your organization employee base would look like if you multiplied it by five or 10. If you look at your dream organizational chart, how do you need to multiply your company to get to your dream operational goals? This is a really good exercise to do, especially in the fourth quarter of the year. This is a great way to set goals and write numbers down. It gives you a benchmark of where you are now and where you ultimately want to go.

For today’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast, we are joined by Nani Ferreira-Mathews – Owner and Sales and Marketing Director of Thread Coffee Roasters. Nani has been working in specialty coffee since 2012. She started as a barista in a small Brooklyn coffee shop that featured Crop to Cup coffees. There she learned to pour latte art and how to properly brew coffee. She went onto roasting, production, and education for Joe Coffee and Nobletree in NYC. She was the Lead Educator and Sales and Marketing Director for Unique Coffee Roasters in Staten Island, NY. In 2017, she moved to Baltimore, MD to work with Woodberry Kitchen, Artifact Coffee, and Bird in Hand as coffee director and manager. Since becoming an owner at Thread Coffee Roasters in 2018, Nani has grown this local business immensely. She has helped Thread to achieve co-operative ownership of their green coffee importer and recently received the high honor of B-Corp certification. Her dedicated work towards a more transparent, equitable and sustainable coffee industry has been recognized on an international level in recent years and has brought attention to Thread Coffee Roasters and Baltimore City on a global scale. Thread was named Best Coffee in Maryland by Food and Wine Magazine in 2019, and has had several notable mentions in Bon Appetit, Sprudge, Daily Coffee News and Roast Magazine. In Baltimore City, they offer free home delivery and have innovatively worked to create a zero-waste CSC (Community Supported Coffee) Coffee Refill Program. Thread’s importing practices have a carbon neutral goal for 2022, which will be achieved by offsetting carbon emissions through meticulous tracking at the farm and shipping level then offset by supporting and funding sustainability measures, such as shade grown coffee farms and increased biodiversity and soil health programs at the farm level. Nani has already achieved so much, but isn’t stopping anytime soon. She continues to make an impact and push for a more sustainable and equitable industry, helping to both facilitate a conversation and put into practice changes that are long overdue. When not working, Nani is an activist, writer and musician. Go to https://www.threadcoffee.com/ to learn more about Thread Coffee and their mission…and maybe even pick up a bag of coffee while you’re there!

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip! Today’s topic is around setting a process. Here’s the biggest reminder that I want you to think about: you will always be outgrowing your process in your company. That’s what happens when you are scaling your company. Today I want to share with you the four stages in really perfecting your process. Number one, you form. Number two, it storms. Number three, it’s a norm. Number four, it performs. It starts with forming a process and through the storm it will turn into a norm and eventually perform for you. There are different processes for so many facets of your business and these four stages must be remembered when setting and perfecting a process.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip! I want you to think about what you need to outgrow right now. What are you holding onto that no longer serves you and you are no longer serving? What do you need to outgrow right now? It is okay to outgrow things and as entrepreneurs we outgrow vendors, associations, coaches, team members and many more things. Outgrowing things happens and that is okay. I want you to stop and really think about things you might not need in your life anymore because your time is precious and valuable. We need to be as productive as possible and participate in things that are truly the highest and best use of our time - and also make us feel good! We need to live in our genius zone as entrepreneurs. I’m giving you grace and courage to make those decisions to say you have outgrown something. Keep evolving, I am so proud of you.

For today’s interview on the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast we talk to Peter Burstein, president and owner of UNITS Portable Storage in Maryland. Peter’s path to owning his own business is a true testament to his entrepreneurial mindset. As a previous real estate attorney, the idea of our possessions and spaces has always been in the forefront of his surroundings. Over two years ago, Peter opened UNITS Portable Storage. For him a big part of opening a storage company had to do with being locally-owned, as a part of the community, one where you would talk to someone local instead of a national call center representative. Understanding the importance of Maryland’s geographical location for the purpose of containers and storage was a crucial aspect that made his business set up for success. Tune into this episode to learn more about Peter, UNITS Portable Storage, and the pathway to entrepreneurship.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip! In today’s tip we are talking about seven common business owner problems. Number one is lack of cash flow. This is a big challenge with business owners and I'm sure you’ve been there - and if you haven’t been there, you will be there one day. You’re always going to go through different growth stages of cash flow management and it’s important to have the right tools and resources in place (even ones you don’t know are out there yet) to assist you through the various stages of your business. Number two is marketing and advertising. This is about knowing where to spend your money and the right resources you should engage to help you grow. Oftentimes marketing vendors will promise they are a magic wand and it can disappoint. It’s important to have somebody on your side and looking out for you - somebody who can guide you to meet your objectives and goals for your business. Number three is managing your time. This one is big because time management for business owners is tough and your time is golden. You need to make sure you are using the right tools to manage your time so you can be the most effective in your business. Number four is performing administrative work. Leadership is getting things done through others and you need to have the right person on your team that you are able to delegate tasks that you shouldn't be doing to, like administrative work. Hiring an assistant is crucial for you and your business. Number five is hiring and retaining top talent. This goes hand in hand with delegating and hiring an assistant. Right now, hiring is the biggest challenge and pain point for entrepreneurs. If you do not have an interview process or a hiring process, you need to establish one. Number six is providing the different management benefits. As a business owner, you need to know what benefits to offer, be able to navigate through all the regulations, and understand what a benefits package looks like. I am an objective soundboard for you with the resources and a network that can help you. You don’t need to make decisions by yourself, I can help you. You don’t have to do this alone and I'm just here to take you to the next level.

Welcome to this week’s Express Tip on the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. Here is a question I want you to ask yourself the next time you are at your desk and feeling overwhelmed or stuck in your business. The question is “who’s job am I doing now?” The next time you go to do a task or something in your business, you have to ask yourself, “who’s job am I doing now?” If it’s your job and you’re doing it, then that’s great. But if it’s a job that could be for an assistant, a bookkeeper, a social media manager, or a sales person, you need to start identifying who those people are around you because there’s a good chance you are doing more than you should be doing. You grow and you scale by delegating. Leadership is getting things done through others. When you are having those moments when you feel like you are panicking or rushing or wanting to pull your hair out, ask yourself that question - “who’s job am I doing now?” As you make note of the things you are doing that you should be delegating, you are identifying all the aspects of a job description you will need when you are looking for your next best hire. Oftentimes we don’t even know what we need next, but when we start to pay attention to it in the thick of things that’s when we can make huge progress in our business. So “who’s job am I doing now?” Ask yourself that question, start paying attention to it, begin making lists for what you need and watch those things develop into your next hire. Keep evolving entrepreneur, I am so proud of you. Don’t miss our Webinar to launch The Team Maker Formula.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip! This tip is about entrepreneur patterns. As I am coaching business owners, I see patterns and it’s interesting how the patterns unfold and how they are uniquely similar with various different business owners - whether you are male or female, have a newer or existing company, or have a small team or large team. No matter the business I see trends and patterns unfold and a lot of times it has to do with the business owner’s mindset. The good times are very good and the bad times are very bad. The patterns are out there and once we can identify the patterns and narrow in on what specifically is going on with you as a business owner then we can identify if this is something happening universally with business owners. Once we can narrow in on what the issue is, we can make huge progress and that's when your business really scales. Oftentimes these patterns arise from things like confidence, identity crisis, self-doubt, or team development and those are the things I help you work through. I want you to identify what you think the pattern is that you are witnessing in your business and chances are you are not alone and other businesses are going through it as well. Please reach out for a conversation because being able to have conversations with objective viewpoints is when clarity happens and scalability happens. You might think you are experiencing something alone, but it’s most likely a trend and a lot of other business owners are experiencing the same things you are. Call yourself out, look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself what is the pattern I am in right now and how can I have that breakthrough.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip - we are happy you are here! Today we are talking about happiness and happiness is the difference between our expectations and reality. Oftentimes we set huge expectations and reality oftentimes will not live up to those expectations in our head and that’s where disappointment comes in and where people’s level of happiness can really differ. I want you to think about this because we are in control of our happiness. Some people are naturally wired to be happier and have a more positive mindset than others, while some can be more negative or pensive in their approach with things. How you are wired is the way you are wired - nothing is right, wrong or different here and nobody is perfect. We are all wired differently and that’s a good thing. I want you to think about what I’m saying - happiness is the difference between expectations and reality. The less expectations we have in our head, the less pressure we put on a situation, the less we overthink things, the better. This speaks to going with the flow of things and being more in the moment than having these huge situations growing in our heads about something coming in the near future. Happiness is the difference between our expectations and reality. If we let things happen the way that they should and we trust we are making good decisions, surrounding ourselves with good people and doing the right thing then we do not need to make things bigger in our head than they need to be. Happiness is what we can control. We can set those expectations on a very basic level and let reality unfold. The trust in yourself is where happiness can unfold and you can be present with the things that are happening and meant to happen. It’s a powerful thing to understand you are in control of your happiness, but when we start to swirl and make things more monumental than they need to be, that's when we can get let down. Even when reality is serving us really well we can get disappointed because our expectations were more than they should have been. I know that’s a big topic to talk about and we could really talk about it for much longer, but I want to know about your level of happiness and where you are checking in with reality versus these huge expectations we put on ourselves.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip. Today we are talking about conquering the overwhelm. Overwhelm sounds like an overwhelming word - it’s a big word and many people process at different speeds, in different ways and go about things with different strategies. Sometimes when the overwhelm is happening we are swirling in our own thoughts and the best advice I can give to help conquer the overwhelm is to simply take out a piece of paper and a pen and brain dump everything down onto the paper. Write down everything in your head, whether it is about getting a new dog bed for your dog, running to the grocery store for tonight’s dinner, reaching out to a new client you really want to land or hiring a new bookkeeper. Whatever is in your head, whether it is work-related, family-related or an errand, write it down on that piece of paper. From there, highlight the top priorities - I would challenge you to only highlight three or four items, maximum five items. Now you can go through and start with those small things. Once you take action you will feel better and the overwhelm will go away - I promise you. Trust me, I am an entrepreneur just like you and I see the common mindset challenges we all face and overwhelm is at the top of that list. So take out that piece of paper and pen, brain dump and highlight the top things you need to get started with - action will help you. Keep evolving entrepreneur - I promise you I see you, I get you and you are not alone. You are doing it! Progress can feel like a range of emotions - it can feel like an amazing high or sometimes it feels like you are stalling and don’t know which way to go. Every day is different and that’s why we do this. You are doing this and you can do this so keep it going. I’m really proud of you, keep going and I will see you soon.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. Today we are talking about the small tweaks. It is really important - especially during these seasonal changes - to make sure we are taking a closer look at everything in our business. Sometimes to grow and scale we need to get back in the weeds a little bit. I’m not saying to stay there, but do go back in and re-examine certain aspects of your business. There are always improvements in our systems and processes that can be made. As I record this, we are shifting from summer to fall. Take a look at the smaller things in your business. Where can you make a small tweak? For example, some softwares have workflows and automations. If you have laid a great foundation, ask yourself what the next step is. How can you improve on the next step? Where can you tweak? This is a great thing to task your executive assistant, virtual assistant, or your team. Where can we make small tweaks to improve and make a better workflow. So I encourage you to go back in the weeds, don’t get stuck there, but ask your team these questions. Please reach out to me and schedule your complimentary breakthrough session. This is 20-minutes of a deep dive into your business. You get to be honest, open, this is a judgement free zone. So let’s talk with you about your business. You are doing this, Rockstar. You are growing, and I want to be your biggest cheerleader and help you continue to grow. Let’s make it more fun for you and a bit easier and lighter. I am SO proud of you, keep evolving, Entrepreneur.

Hi there, Entrepreneur. Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. Today is our Express Tip in 5 minutes or less, and today we are talking about growth. We talk about this often, and today I want to specifically call out a quote I got from my attorney on our team, “addition via subtraction.” Sometimes, the way to grow is to subtract. The way to add, is to takeaway. Sometimes we have to kindly coach people out of our organization into different chapters of their lives, or cut off the dead weight. The important part of this is making sure the right people are on our team and in front of us. It’s a really hard thing to do, and it can be even harder when our emotions are in the picture. Next time you are going through a team shift or analysis remember: addition via subtraction. If you need to repair, reevaluate, or change your team, sometimes you cannot grow, build, or add until you subtract and delete. It’s difficult, but you can do it, and know you are not alone in this - I am here to help you grow through these decisions. Use me as a resource, for team building, for your next hire. Sign up for a free 20 minute session and we can chat about it.  Keep evolving, Entrepreneur, I am SO proud of you.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. This is the Express Tip in 5 minutes or less to regroup from your week and prepare to launch into next week. Today’s tip is about identity crisis. Chances are you have had some sort of identity crisis in your business. If you havent had one yet, you may feel like you are going to have one. And you know what this is all surrounded by? Hiring. Sometimes when we hire we feel like we don’t know what we will do, when we have these new hires to come in and help us. What will our workload be? It gives you a sense of ‘will I still have purpose in my company?’ Let me tell you something: yes you will. When you hire, it levels you up. And that is how you scale. Hire, have the identity crisis, grow and learn. Don’t worry, I see you, I get you, I am here doing it with you. Sign up for a free 20 minute session and we can talk about your pain points and work through them.  Keep evolving, Entrepreneur, I am SO proud of you.

Express Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast, and today we are talking about your hiring process. I’m your host Annette Walter, business growth coach, operational strategist, and growth-minded entrepreneur just like you, growing and scaling my two businesses on the national level. I’m so happy you are here. So question for you: do you have a set hiring process in your business that you follow every time you make a hire? Is it consistent, or is it kind of built but every time you need a new hire it’s reactive? I am here to tell you today that the hiring process starts months before you interview and post the job posting. It should ALWAYS be happening in your business, it is ongoing. Think about how you determine a new hire, when you know it’s time for a new hire, and how you are going about creating that job description. Let’s think about the hiring process before you even go out to market to find the right people to bring into your organization. I have a really great tool to analyze what’s getting done in your business. This is the best place to start when you need to determine a new hire in your organization. Many are getting this process wrong, so schedule your one to one and we can go over your process and tweak it. If you want to jump into our mastermind group this is the place to be, with like-minded entrepreneurs scaling their own businesses.  Keep evolving, Entrepreneur, I am SO proud of you.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. This is my weekly business tip in 5 minutes or less to regroup and prepare for the next week. Today I am going to share a quote that I love. So here it is, “success loves speed.” The first thing I think of when I hear that quote is decision making. One of the things I see out there in my coaching and group sessions is that the decision making process needs to be quick. To be a good strong and solid decision maker, the decision making needs to happen. The best decision making happens when you have the right tools. So when you are scaling your business to new levels, be a solid, strong quick decision maker. Stick with your decision and know that there is always the option to shift or evolve around that decision. One of the best tools I use to make decisions in my business is the Core Values Index which helps me to evaluate the nature of others. I use this to hire and to help my clients hire as a way to make quick decisions. Reach out, set up a free call with me so I can help point you in the right direction to the right resources. If you want to jump into our mastermind group this is the place to be, with like-minded entrepreneurs scaling their own businesses.  Keep evolving, Entrepreneur, I am SO proud of you.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. This is the place where you will gain knowledge from other entrepreneurs just like you. On Fridays, I share a business tip in 5 minutes or less. Today I want to talk about the power of what you are feeding your mind. What goes in, comes out. This is especially important before you go to bed. Whatever you are programming your brain with, whatever it is -  what goes in comes out. So make sure you are feeding your brain, feeding your subconsciousness, with really strong positive thoughts. This is the same with the conversations you are having within your social sphere, work time, etc. So make sure you are always feeding your soul, mind, and body, really positive, healthy, strong, thoughts that are great for you in your evolution. I am really proud of you and excited for the one-on-one sessions scheduled on my calendar. I LOVE our groups, if you need a mastermind or are looking for something in the fall like a group where you can be held accountable and make momentum - then this is the place to be. I have two powerful masterminds, ask me about those and if you want to come visit I’d be happy to have you. Keep evolving, I am SO proud of you.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. This is the place where growth-minded entrepreneurs learn from one another, grow from one another, scale their businesses and keep evolving. This is our express tip about focusing on your inner compass. We are halfway through the year as we are recording this. It is the dead center of summer. Spend some time, quiet time, journal, do a pulse check - reflect on what this year has been like for you. What is your inner compass pointing you to now, what is the most important thing right now. Re-align and ask yourself what is important and what do you really want for the rest of the year. A recurring theme this week with our entrepreneur groups was the feeling that “I should be much further than I am, but that I am grateful for everything I’ve been through.” So touch base with your inner compass, give yourself some grace, reflect, and ask what’s important now. I hope you are doing well. I see you, I get you, and I’m here for you. Keep evolving, I am SO proud of you.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. For today’s tip, I want to talk to you about hiring. The process of hiring can be extremely exhausting if you do not have a strategic way to go about it. Often, as entrepreneurs the thought of hiring is so daunting that we put it off, and by the time we really need the hire it’s just way too late and we make a quick and or wrong decision. And if you are working with the wrong person, then you really can’t teach a dolphin to fly. Take some time before you go into the act of recruiting and looking at resumes, and follow this quick 3-step plan. Number 1, make the right job description. Often we fail at a hire because we get the job description wrong. Spend 2 weeks looking at what items are not getting done, what needs to get done, and what you or an existing team member is doing that needs to get let go of. Star which ones are revenue producing. Take the key words and form a specific and crafted job description. Number 2, have a step-by-step process of them going through the interview. What does it look like? And number 3, onboarding and training. If you want them to succeed in your organizations, you must have clear expectations and a process for succeeding to get them to the point of ownership and autonomy. This is often what I do with clients, I help clients through these processes to build the dream team around them. I offer free break-through sessions, schedule a one to one with me and share with me your story, business, challenges, and where you need help. Cheers, entrepreneur - I am SO proud of you.

Outside of Hint, Inc, Kara is also a Podcast host on The Kara Goldin Show (https://karagoldin.com/podcast/), and a celebrated author with her first book Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters listed as a best seller on both WSJ and Amazon. This is a must read for any entrepreneur, whether at the beginning of your journey or end.

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast. Today is Friday’s Express Tip, where I drop a business tip in 5 minutes or less. So we talk about scaling our businesses a lot on here, and today’s tip is on the feeling of growth. So what does growth actually feel like? Well, when you are emotionally triggered in your business, you are agitated, things don’t go right, people and teams feel like they are “messing up” - that is growth! Every time you grow, a system breaks. Why? Because the process and system that got you to one point, won’t take you to another point, a higher point, in your business. So growth feels like that emotion, frustration, angst. Instead of being triggered in a negative way - accept it! Recognize that this is growth. It is a good thing that my people are asking me these questions, or that my business and process is giving me feedback to tell me that things aren’t working and it’s time to change them, improve them, make them different. So if you are having that moment of just feeling down about your business, or questioning something, look at it from another perspective. When things are growing and scaling you need new processes and new systems. Every time you grow, your system breaks. Continue to show up, swinging the back, and looking at things with that lense of where you want to go to get to your vision. You are doing it. These are the things we talk about in our mastermind group to hold you accountable, make sure you show up in your business, and think on your business so you can have “aha” moments on a deeper level within your business. So reach out on the link below so we can talk about what options are available to you. Keep evolving, Entrepreneur. I am SO proud of you. If you are interested in learning more about our programs, the Entrepreneur Empowerment Evolution group, or just want to say hello then please fill out this form and we will get in touch with you https://ievolveconsulting.com/are-you-ready-to-evolve/ We want to hear from YOU!

In this week’s episode we interview Daniela Woerner, a spa marketing & retail sales strategist aimed at aestheticians, and owner of Addo Aesthetics. Daniela is a licensed Aesthetician who combined her passion for aesthetics with her business administration degree to help spas and aestheticians with strategy, marketing, and strategic development for scalable and successful businesses. Daniela’s story began upon the realization that as a military spouse who moves regularly, she needed to find a passion that would allow her to continue her work despite moves. And so her entrepreneurial attitude created a consulting business, working with worldwide skincare brands. When moving into the digital space, Daniela found what she calls her “true calling” as a strategist who helps other businesses and professionals to find their own “breakthrough moments.” In addition to her business, she also hosts a podcast that has landed on the “iTunes top 100 podcast, Spa Marketing Made Easy.” You listen at https://addoaesthetics.libsyn.com/ or learn more about her services online https://www.addoaesthetics.com/ We would love to hear from you, and it would be awesome if you left us a 5-star review.

Welcome and today’s Express Tip for The Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast is about going back to your basics. This is the time of year that you are often running in many different directions. This is exciting, but can also make you doubt yourself and what you’re doing or what your vision is. So here’s what I want you to do: do a word dump. Start to write down as many words that come to mind for you, about you, your business, your product, your services, your life, work, balance… Write down tons of words that relate to you, your life, your business. Then, categorize and group these words together. You will see some common themes. As you group them together, think about this sentence: I help ____ with ____. If you are feeling away from your purpose, this can help bring you back to that through this quick exercise. This is a great tip, and I felt the need to share as it was given to me this week by Megan Sumrell on the Entrepreneur Evolution Interview. Let me know what you discover, what you go back to, and what you are moving away from. Talk to me about it, reach out to book a call with me. You are doing a great job, Entrepreneur. Work hard, play hard.

Welcome to this week’s Entrepreneur Express Tip. Today is our Express Tip where I bring you a business tip in 5 minutes or less, and we are talking about finding your new rhythm. Everything changes with the shift into summer. Most of you are dual working households with children out there as you are growing your companies and families, so schedules are changing. So with all the added changes, you need to find a new rhythm. Embrace the new mode and find a different way to get things done so you can still enjoy the moments and the season with our kids, with our families, our teams, and not lose yourself. First, try to get ahead of yourself. Look at the week in advance and plan as much as you can. If you can’t get that far in advance, be sure to map out what's on the horizon at least 1 or 2 nights in advance. Look as far in advance as you possibly can and map out the details. Next, be sure you are communicating the details. For example, Me and Shawn have started a morning little blurb about what’s going on with Team Walter - where are the boys, what are their schedules, who’s with the boys, what my day looks like, etc. It really helps to round out the day to make sure things run smoothly. Communicate this plan as much as possible. Another important tip, simply take a step back and take a deep breath. Know that you will get it all done. It will figure itself out. Everyone out there is in crazy summer mode - it’s just a different speed. You can do this, and you are doing this. So find a new rhythm to get through it, continue to have fun, and continue to build your business. I am really proud of you. It fills my cup to know I am helping you and you are not feeling alone. If you haven’t scheduled a call go ahead and book it - it’s only 20 minutes. Keep evolving, Entrepreneur. I am so proud of you.
