Encore: The 3rd Place A replay of one of Theresa’s favorite episodes, The 3rd Place. The message she explains is one she truly believes and is the foundation for any successful business in this modern world. Everyone needs a place in this world. One where they feel comfortable, where they can be their truest selves without fear or doubt, one that just feels right. For many, there are usually two of these places; Home and work. When you’re home, you feel relaxed and safe. At work, a place of unity amongst colleagues, that promotes creativity and innovation. But the third place is something we need more of. It’s the place between the other two places. When you aren’t at work and you aren’t at home, your local bakery, coffee shop, shoe store, dry cleaners; these places should feel just as accepting and relaxing as the first two. Somewhere you are happy to spend your precious time, your most valuable asset. As entrepreneurs, it’s up to us to create these places for our customers, for our community, to retreat to when in the in-between. If you enjoyed this episode and, in some way, it inspired you to start taking action, we’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Send Theresa a DM on Instagram @theresacantley and let her know your favorite part. I would also love it if you subscribed to the podcast and left a review at https://theresacantley.com/itunes If there is a topic you would love me to talk about or a question you may have send it to us at theresa@theresacantley.com and we’ll feature it in one of our future episodes.

How to Land Top-tier Media Interviews and TEDx Talks as a Young Immigrant Content Creator with Sandy Lin Show notes available at https://www.gloriachoupr.com/47What destroys most PR dreams and plans before they even take off?The quick answer—is self-limiting beliefs.Often, these limiting beliefs come in mental whispers like, "I don't have a college degree," "I'm too young to charge that rate," or "Nobody will listen to my message because I'm a woman!"These self-doubts come so frequently and powerfully that they cripple you and make you think, 'I don't know when my time will come' or 'I can't do this at all.' No sooner than that, you find yourself that you are already out of time, energy, and resources.Do you often feel the same with your PR journey and efforts?The good news is that you are not alone; the even better news is that you can change your PR narrative.This is why in this special episode, I would like to show you how you can overcome what you think is impossible in your PR journey. Not even age, ethnicity, academic background, or inexperience can hold you back from being the best version of yourself.Now, you may be asking, how is that even possible?Well, the stories you tell are the same stories you sell. So, why not make your story so good that journalists and TED Talks would put you in the spotlight?That's what our guest, Sandy Lin, a business founder at the age of 19 and content creator, hopes to inspire you with her stories and insights."If you wait, you're just going to spend all your life waiting. And there's never really that perfect moment. And that should give you the confidence. There are so many people out there that are doing it. They're probably not better than you. If anything, they're literally exactly the same. And all you got to do is really understand that if not now, then when?" -Sandy LinTopics We Discuss in this Episode:Ways to overcome impostor syndrome and self-doubts in doing PRHow creating your story helps you build your brandCrafting messages (DMs and emails) that journalists can't resist openingWhy practicing your pitch is better than waiting for the right timingThe benefits of always pitching before media to clarify your narrativeUtilizing your story to create more business opportunitiesIf you want to land your first feature for free without any connections, I want to invite you to watch my PR Secrets Masterclass where I reveal the exact methods thousands of bootstrapping small businesses use to hack their own PR and go from unknown to being a credible and sought-after industry expert.

Is Free Money A Good Thing? In This Episode
So what do you do when all the government money runs out?  Over the past couple of years since the COVID-19 pandemic started there has been an unprecedented amount of “free money” being doled out to individuals and businesses alike.

On the business front in the U.S. there were 2 rounds of Forgivable PPP Loans (Paycheck Protection Program), refunds from Worker’s Compensation, and Payroll Tax Credit Refunds helping to line the coffers of businesses large and small.  Is this a good thing?  How do things look now that all of this funding is gone?  Is your business struggling to maintain profitability and positive cash flow in the current situation?

In the short-term these funds helped keep the doors open at many of our local businesses.  We can each share stories of local businesses who were really devastated by this pandemic and struggled to keep going during this time even with all of the “free money” coming in.  So now that the free money is gone will many of these struggling businesses survive or simply go under?  Did the government assistance help or really just delay the inevitable?

During the show today we chatted about some of our observations on this topic and provide some guidance for those companies that are still struggling to make profits in this post-pandemic world.  It all starts with having a good cash forecast to lay out where all the money is coming in and going to.

How Much Does it Cost to Start a Handyman Business? The cost to start a profitable handyman business will usually fall somewhere between $2,000 and $6,000, depending on how much of the process you outsource vs. do yourself.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to spend that much upfront. These costs can be paid over the first several months in business while you are making money.
While this may seem expensive, the start-up costs for a handyman business are low compared to most businesses, especially if you already have the tools and a work vehicle.
Additionally, I don’t like to think of them as costs but as investments since you are investing in a business that will bring you freedom, high income, and fulfilling work.
Of course, you can start a handyman business for just a few hundred bucks, but that means you’ll be cutting corners that will cost you in the long run.
Here’s a more detailed explanation of costs.
List of Handyman Business Start-Up Costs
This list assumes that you already have a lot of the necessary tools and a work vehicle. If you don’t have either of those, then the cost will be significantly higher, of course.
Business Licensing: $100-$1,000
This expense will vary depending on the city and state in which you plan to run your business, the business structure you choose (LLC, S Corp, or Sole Proprietor), and whether or not you pay somebody to help you submit the forms.
If you go with an LLC and file the forms yourself, expect to spend about $400-$500 here. However, that is the cost for filing with the state, you’ll also need to consider other business licenses such as a city business license. But, those are usually less expensive and should only be around $100-200 for each city you plan to work in.
Contractor’s License (optional in most situations): $0 – $1,000
In most states, you won’t need a contractor’s license to start offering home repairs. However, if you want to tackle large projects such as kitchen or bath remodels and don’t want to be limited to only small repairs, then a contractor’s license is usually necessary.
The cost to obtain that license can vary significantly depending on where you live and other factors. This is something you’ll want to look into for your state.
Liability Insurance: $30 – $200 per month
Getting general liability insurance as a pro handyman isn’t required by law unless you have a contractor’s license, but it’s still a good idea and something I recommend. Here’s a guide to getting the right coverage at the right price.
Tools and Equipment: $0 – $3,000
Typical handyman services only require basic hand tools and a few power tools. Usually, no expensive specialized equipment is necessary.
If you already have most of the essential handyman tools, this will be a small expense. However, if you possess very few tools, then you’ll obviously spend more.
Either way, it’s best to avoid throwing a bunch of money at fancy tools during the first few months. Instead, buy tools as you need them.
Software: $0 – $75
There are two types of software most handymen will need: accounting software and estimating software. There are excellent free options for both, as I mention here. However, these are usually “freemium” models where you will have to pay for certain optional features.
Logo Design: $0 – $1,000
You can design your own or have a pro do it for you. I’d recommend the latter. Crowdsourcing your handyman logo is probably the easiest way to get a great logo designed for about $500. But in a pinch, you could use a service like Fiverr to get o

238: QFF With over 34 years of experience in the Tassie market and employing up to 350 people a week, now providing key solutions on how to solve the struggle in recruiting for the job vacancies. (Rob Cameron and Nick Prokopiec) In this episode, I interview Nick Prokopiec, the Chief Executive Officer of Season Buck, a Tasmanian Recruitment and HR Consulting Firm, that has been around in the Tassie market for just over 34 years now. For many years, we're very attractive as a state to see change and make changes. But we're now starting to see housing availability and affordability be a real challenge even coming from the mainland, including the retention piece for employers. Nick has said that if you don't allocate the time and take it seriously, often it turns to custard. So he says, “allocating time is probably the key for a small business.” This Cast Covers: Tasmanian Recruitment and HR Consulting Firm. Operate throughout the state of Hobart, Devonport, and Burnie. Employing 300 and up to 350 people a week. Running a privately owned business. Learning how to attract people to your business. Providing key solutions on how to solve the problem of having a lack of employees. Helping people on how to become a perfect fit for a job. Learning how to assess people's motivations for wanting to take on a job. Additional Resources: SearsonBuck     Quotes: “If you don’t allocate the time and take it seriously, often it turns to custard.” —Nick Prokopiec “A small employer needs to learn the art of reviewing a CV.” —Nick Prokopiec “It’s not about the qualifications as much anymore, it’s about the transferrable skills.” —Nick Prokopiec “Make sure that individual has the right motivations for the role.” —Nick Prokopiec “You need to understand whether or not someone is going to lifestyle motivation.” —Nick Prokopiec     Music from https://filmmusic.io “Cold Funk” by Kevin MacLeod https://incompetech.com.

SBM #108 – The goose that laid the golden egg “There was once a Countryman who possessed the most wonderful Goose you can imagine, for every day when he visited the nest, the Goose had laid a beautiful, glittering, golden egg.
The Countryman took the eggs to market and soon began to get rich. But it was not long before he grew impatient with the Goose because she gave him only a single golden egg a day. He was not getting rich fast enough.
Then one day, after he had finished counting his money, the idea came to him that he could get all the golden eggs at once by killing the Goose and cutting it open. But when the deed was done, not a single golden egg did he find, and his precious Goose was dead.”

Every time I hear this story, I’m reminded of a conversation I had with a relative of mine a number of years ago. In passing, I happened to mention that after 25 years, I was thinking of selling my business and taking my chips off the table.
To my surprise, he immediately responded that it was a terrible idea and that I should just hire a manager, sit back, and collect an ongoing dividend. “So don’t kill the Goose that laid the golden egg” he said.
“Theory is great,
until it is put into
practice”
Now this is a fine idea in theory, however as we all know, many theories are only good until they’re put into practice, then they just fall apart.
What really set me back with his theory was that he had never c0me close to risking his future on anything remotely entrepreneurial. He had a secure position, plus a bullet proof pension. That is far different than the life of an entrepreneur.
We do it all!
As owners, we deal with far different issues than being a corporate manager. We don’t have the luxury of having an HR department to handle hiring and discipline issues. Nor do most of us have a CFO to manage cashflow, payables and receivables. No, we tend to do it all.
In addition, we carry the burden of our family and employees futures on your shoulders. Let’s not forget the hours spent worrying how we are going generate revenue during a particularly lean period or wondering where the next threat to your business lies.

Let’s face it, if we are honest with ourselves this is what we signed up for and for the most part these challenges are what drive us forward, but the list of things that preoccupy us is endless. And unlike an employee, we don’t leave these worries at the office. They are always lingering just below the surface, 24-7.
This theory of hiring a manager to run your business is a great idea if your plan is to expand your business holdings in other areas. This is because you are still engaged. However, if you have reached a point or age in your life where you’ve achieved your goals or are no longer motivated, then this is just a bad idea.
For many of us, we have built our companies up over several years and any success we’ve enjoyed is a result of keeping an eye on the critical metrics of our enterprise. Turning everything over to a stranger in the hopes they will be as diligent as you have been, is a bit of a stretch.
Of course, if you’ve built a large enterprise and have the luxury of professional managers in place, then stepping away may work. But this is not the reality of most small businesses.
No, its never as easy as just walking away and have someone send you a check every mo

175: So you've fallen off the clockwork wagon? Clockworking is a lifelong practice, so like any major lifestyle changes or habits you are working on developing, it’s only natural that there will be ebbs and flows as you implement it.  In this episode Emily talks about the three most common reasons our clients feel like they stall out on their progress:  “I don’t have enough time in the day” “I can’t do it perfectly so I’m not doing it at all” “I keep getting distracted by a million little fires”   She also covers 3 simple ways to jumpstart after an extended break. Most importantly, if you’re experiencing a lull, remember to give yourself grace.    This is to be expected, it happens almost like clockwork ;)    The key is to seek out the support you need to push through these seasons.  And if that’s us, you can learn more at www.clockworkaccelerator.com

96: Stop Wasting Time On This Whether You Are Starting A Business, Self-Employed, A Solopreneur, Entrepreneur, Mompreneur, Owner, Side Hustler, Freelancer, Bookkeeper, Or Virtual Assistant We are all given the same amount of time each and every day, and what you do with it is ultimately your decision, but if you are wasting your time on something that isn’t helping you reach your goals or the level of success you are looking for in your business, it’s time to really take a look at where your time is being spent and make some changes.  In today’s podcast episode, I will not only point out some of the biggest things that cause us to waste time in businesses but also how you can quickly fix these issues if you find that you are guilty of these in your business.  Identifying and being aware of any of these issues is the first step to overcoming the time you may be wasting.  Whether you are a self-employed individual, a solopreneur, entrepreneur, mompreneur, freelancer, small business owner, a remote, virtual, online, or in-house bookkeeper, or a virtual assistant or VA, and you feel like time slips away from you each day, listen in and start making a change.  You might be surprised to find where you are wasting time in your business.  Most business owners feel that the tasks they are doing are necessary, but this episode will have you taking steps to make sure if the task is indeed necessary, you are performing at your highest potential.  These tips are essential whether you are using a computerized software system like QuickBooks, Xero, Wave, or FreshBooks for your business finances; or doing your bookkeeping manually with an Excel spreadsheet or even a Google Document…

Some are nicely built others are old and outdated but they all have one thing in common . . . they don’t bring in leads. If your website is not working for your business, you are not alone.

Scaling Your Small Business to Big Numbers An entrepreneurial venture without the daily headaches, that seemingly runs itself? It’s not a myth. And it’s 100% attainable when you begin scaling your small business. It goes back to that foundation you’ve set for yourself. Once you’ve established what it is you want to do and accomplish with your business and the lives you want to affect, you can then start to look at how you can do these things on a larger scale. Many business owners strive to see large growth, but some obtain it and aren’t ready to handle all that comes with that sudden growth. Having the right systems, processes, and even people in place to help you and your business streamline itself is crucial to sustaining any success you are granted. Without that backbone to hold things together, it can all come falling down before your eyes. If you enjoyed this episode and, in some way, it inspired you to start taking action, I’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Please send me a DM on Instagram @theresacantley and let me know what your favorite part was.

What It Means to Be Sustainable in a Fad-Driven World Creating a business that can grow and profit in the here and now is one thing, but to be able to move forward into unknown terrain and still be able to succeed despite the circumstance is how you create a sustainable one.  It’s looking at the future and seeing how we can exist in it and also thrive in it all while preserving the things around us for generations to come. How can you adjust how you do business so that you are able to move forward and continue making a difference in the world?  Start with the core values you, as a person, have and want to share with those around you. When those values are built into the foundation of your business, every decision there forward reflects those values and pushes them out into the universe. Sending out the right vibes attracts the right people, and those people will help you to carry your business forward to continue doing good for those around you. If you enjoyed this episode and, in some way, it inspired you to start taking action, I’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway.

Problems like: You spend too much time hoping and quoting, but not closing sales Prospects always say they’ll “think it over” instead of yes or no You end up doing too much unpaid consulting As a manager or owner, you wonder if you have the right people on your team Your sales team seems busy, but seldom closes enough sales Jeff helps sales people, managers and business owners who are dead serious about fixing these problems.

#82 Supporting your mental health in your business Hey friends,
sorry for the unexpected pause! I am back with a chat about mental health in business, which is something I wish we'd all talk about more. I am sharing how I am approaching this from five different angles - identifying sources of anxiety and stress, deepening self-awareness, building resources, thinking about honesty & communication and putting structural support in place. 
Not all of this might apply to you or suit you, but I hope this episode is giving you some valuable food for thought!

Henry Lopez is the host of The How of Business podcast – helping you start, run and grow your small business. The How of Business is a top-rated podcast for small business and entrepreneurs.

148 - Handling Overwhelm Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom! Today, we’re tackling overwhelm. It’s something we all are challenged with, but for some reason struggle to talk about. We’re going to talk about some strategies that can help you get out of that cycle quickly.    Sometimes, procrastination is both a product and a cause of and for overwhelm. Just as often, the source of the overwhelm is a task that is smaller than we think but has been left to fester and grow into something that encompasses us.    A good place to start is getting focused on priorities. It’s important to know what you need to get done first. Start with what makes you money, or what has a firm date deadline. A lot of overwhelm stems from way too much to do.   Depending on what your procrastination destination is, you may be getting sucked in to hide from a task. No matter what the action is, you've got to get around it. Try making a list of every single thing you’re overwhelmed by. Getting things out of your head and onto paper can make it much easier to attack.  If you’re avoiding your overflowing email, start with organizing your inboxes. When things are laid out for you, it can become more manageable.    Create a workspace free of clutter. Turn off all your devices, and let yourself focus.   Finally, break larger tasks down into smaller, more digestible ones. Write them down on sticky notes and keep track of the to-do, in-progress, and completed sections of your Kanban board (check out our other episode on them!).    Key Takeaways Sometimes, the source of the overwhelm is a task that is smaller than we think but has been left to fester and grow into something that encompasses us.    Try making a list of every single thing you’re overwhelmed by. Getting things out of your head and onto paper can make it much easier to attack.    Finally, break larger tasks down into smaller, more digestible ones.
149 - Creativity and Scaling Your Business with Gina Mote Welcome to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom. Today’s guest is Gina Mote. She has started many successful businesses, most recently a virtual, at-home DIY woodworking and painting workshop called Little August Ranch. She's with us today to talk about her experiences as an entrepreneur and share her best tips for growing a small business.    Gina’s inspiration for Little August Ranch came from the intersection of her love for crafts and scrapbooking, her favorite month, and her and her family’s move from chilly Idaho to a small desert ranch in Arizona. Her passion naturally scaled into a successful business by sharing her work on social media. From there, it was craft shows and scaling.    A primary challenge Gina faced when scaling her business was physically hauling the materials to craft shows. To combat this, Gina pivoted to online selling through Etsy and her personal website, which comes with its own set of challenges. However, this allowed them to introduce a monthly subscription box, which streamlined much of their sales through the website.     Etsy originally served the purpose of running credit cards for Gina’s business, but after building her own website, she realized Etsy had many other perks that are incredibly useful for what she was doing. Etsy has already done the work of building an audience to come to your page, something you’d have to do yourself with a personal website. Because she has a robust understanding of SEO, she was able to catapult her sales. From Etsy, you can build your own website once your customer base starts to form. Building a Shopify website allows for Facebook integration, further driving leads to your product.    Now that her business is streamlined and scaled, the biggest challenge is time. She overcomes this hurdle through delegation and finding what it is she is best at, and offloading the rest. She considered what it is she wanted to spend her day doing and hired out the rest.    Gina uses skills from completely different businesses in her current work. She noticed that the world was shifting online, so she built processes around that to set herself up in the future. Plus, throughout her time scaling other jobs, she was taking training and building up her know-how. She recommends building pieces and seeking out coaches as you go.    For those who are struggling to find their creative outlet, Gina recommends listening to what people are saying, checking out Pinterest, and finding what speaks to you, what you think you could do, and what you’d enjoy creating. All it takes is the desire to create.    Key Takeaways   Moving online is a great way to scale and streamline your business.   Etsy has already done the work of building an audience to come to your page, something you’d have to do yourself with a personal website.   Find skills that will be applicable to other jobs to ease transition paralysis.
150 - Updating Your Website Thanks for joining us on the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom! Today, we’re going to break down the steps and key moments you’ll encounter when you update your business’ website. It can seem like an overwhelming project, but it’s possible to calm the chaos.    One of the most important things to remember when you’re building your website is this: your website isn’t about you, it’s about the problem you solve. People are purchasing things from us because they have a problem and need to purchase the solution. By making that crystal clear for people, it makes so much easier that decision-making process and leads to people buying more. If your competitor has a much clearer, easy-to-use website, people will automatically go there first. Make sure your website’s images build trust with your potential clients. It’s okay to use stock images, but you should have photos of yourself if possible.    Websites are living, breathing things. It's not a set it and forget it—you will always be updating it. Change happens all the time, and you want to keep up with it to make sure your clients are getting the best experience possible. Showing people how easy it is to work with you starts with your website.    Make sure that your top navigation bar is easy to understand and that things are grouped together the way they should be. Making sure that your customers can communicate with you easily is a huge step in the right direction. If someone has a question, it should be simple to start a chat. As far as pop-ups go, if they’re annoying to you, then don’t use them. Be intentional about how and when they are used.    Another big item you can add to your website is testimonials. Now keep in mind that yes, you are selling something. So you want to provide people's feedback of how they felt after they purchase your product, and what that product did for them. What problem did it solve? These testimonials will allow you to paint a picture for the viewer of your website and your potential client of what they can expect.    Make sure you have a mock-up of your website and get feedback before you go live. Feedback from strangers is best because they’ll give you the most objective perspective on what you have to offer. It can be easy to overcomplicate a website! Take feedback to heart and make changes.    Key Takeaways   Your website isn’t about you, it’s about the problem you solve.   Websites are living, breathing things. It's not a set it and forget it—you will always be updating it.    Testimonials will allow you to paint a picture for the viewer of your website and your potential client of what they can expect.
151 - Building a Team Around You and For You with Danikah Rose On the show today, we have an intuitive, empowering, and creative women's business strategist, Danikah Rose. She works on mindset and rewiring limiting beliefs and has a huge passion for authentic marketing and staying true to core values in the public eye. She teaches courses on attitude, gratitude, self-awareness, self-care, and goal setting, along with authentic marketing. She wants all women to know that everything they desire is readily available when they're operating in their truth and their inner wisdom.    The best way people can boost their confidence right away, Danikah shares, starts with practice. It’s not something that’s automatic–it takes intentional cultivation from a place of truth to build it. Things like affirmations are crucial to changing the way you think about yourself. You can become your own hype-man. If that isn’t your game, find a coach that can help you. You can build a hype-squad around you to keep that momentum going.    When you’re building that squad around you or looking for a coach to work with, you want them to look like what you want your future self to be–someone you can admire. They’ve got to match your vibe. Be with someone who is already looking to work with you. Really read into it and take your time, it’s worth being intentional. There’s no rush in making decisions–talk to at least five people and find someone who is going to pour as much into your business as you do.    Comparing ourselves to others can hinder personal and professional progress. A key to breaking that habit (or any habit) is to replace it with something else. It’s not about resistance, because that causes discomfort and isn’t sustainable. Instead of pushing outside your comfort-zone, move your comfort-zone forward with you.    Having the right mindset is the foundation of a successful business. You can stay making decisions based on what’s not going right, or you can make a choice to move forward and think ahead to how you can overcome your challenges. It's not about anyone else. Business is very individual. It's about you and what you're trying to cultivate.    If you know you need to make a change, Danikah recommends starting with getting support. Don't feel ashamed or worried because you haven’t hit certain milestones yet. You’re learning and may not yet have the tools you need. From there, it’s about asking the right questions. What can I do about it? What is the solution? What can I talk about that will serve my customer? The trick with finding support is to flip those questions around. What challenges do you face? What’s the solution? It's about implementing people who know more than you. Not everyone knows everything–everyone has their own zone of expertise. But it’s important to have the support around what you’re creating.    Don’t be afraid to go back to basics. Backspace as much as you need to and reinvent what you do. Accept that something isn’t going to be working the same way they were when you first started. People will believe in you, but you have to put in the work to get there.    Danikah’s last piece of advice is to tune in because there is a lot of noise that can distract you from being your authentic self.    Visit Danikah’s Instagram Bio links to check out her upcoming Mastermind!   Key Takeaways   Confidence is not something that it's just automatic   When you’re building that squad around you or looking for a coach to work with, you want them to look like what you want your future self to be–someone you can admire.    Don’t be afraid to go back to basics. Backspace as much as you need to and reinvent what you do.    LINKS   www.Instagram.com/danikahrosecreative
152 - All About Finances Welcome back to the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with Jillian Flodstrom! Today, we’re going to run through some tips regarding finances–a topic that can be intimidating to new business owners. Planning for the future of your business is one of the keys to setting yourself up for success. Let’s break it down.    First things first, you've got to know where you're at–you've got to know your finances. It can be stressful and scary, but you’ve got to have a starting point to move forward. That can be as easy as printing out your bank statements, your credit card statements, and looking them over.    Make sure you know where your money is going. You might be losing money on something that you didn't even know was still being taken out of your account. Essentially, check your iPhone. There's a subscriptions tab inside the settings—you could be paying for things that you signed up for at one time, and have been charging you on a reoccurring basis without you realizing it. Look for other reoccurring transactions in your life. Do you really need all seven TV streaming services as well as cable?    Create a budget. Develop a spreadsheet with all your recurring transactions to hone in on your money’s path. When you create this sheet, you’ll be able to tell if the outgoing is higher than the incoming. Then, sit down and consider everything coming out of your accounts and see if you can cut back anywhere.   Allow yourself to dream. Have debt? Imagine your life without it. Want a second home? Imagine life with it. Whatever your goals, it’s important to envision them. Set a plan, and find a financial advisor to help maximize what you have.    If you start today, you can change the future of yourself and your family. It’s never too late.    Key Takeaways   It can be stressful and scary, but you’ve got to have a starting point to move forward.    Make sure you know where your money is going. You might be losing money on something that you didn't even know was still being taken out of your account. Create a budget. Develop a spreadsheet with all your recurring transactions to hone in on your money’s path.
153 - Healing, Passion, and Growth with Brenda Markstein Today's guest is Brenda Markstein, a highly regarded woman in many global publications for her extensive knowledge in design along with being recognized as an Emmy Award-winning television and film producer. During the global shutdown, she made the decision to sell her home in Las Vegas, and follow the call of her heart making her way to her ranch in San Diego where she invites others to heal just as she (and the ranch itself) did.    Brenda feels as though she has lived four lifetimes, having climbed Kilimanjaro, bungee jumped in Thailand, had children, attended the Design Institute in San Francisco, became a designer and costume designer on stage, and traveled to dozens of countries, speaking to spiritual leaders. Through all of it, though, she realized that having the ranch and helping others heal was an accumulation of a life of experiences. There, people feel like they've arrived home. No judgment. Whatever you brought, you leave it at the gate, and then you come into your experience.   For Brenda, the pandemic presented an opportunity. Having just spent time traveling the world and meeting amazing people, she had a renewed perspective on the human condition. When she went through a split, the ranch offered itself as a place to heal. In a moment of clarity, she realized we are all in some sort of form of healing.   Brenda’s support system was built naturally through beliefs. The people that came to work for her all came with a passion to create, heal, and help. She hired people based on their gifts, not anyone else’s weaknesses.    Be comfortable with the uncomfortability. Because if you were doing that, that means you're growing out of the pattern that you've already done. It’s okay to have that little bit of excitement as you take your first steps–they are the hardest. But once you take it and you establish your vision, you’re in a powerful position of growth.    Key Takeaways   We are all in some sort of form of healing.   Don't hire to your weakness, hire to the gift.    Be comfortable with the uncomfortability. Because if you were doing that, that means you're growing out of the pattern that you've already done.   LINKS   https://rocasretreat.com/
