Nancy Becher’s Don’t Wait Til Pigs Fly
Episode 50: Health, Wellness and Business Growth with Dane Dormio

Episode 50: Health, Wellness and Business Growth with Dane Dormio

February 20, 2020

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” ~ Buddha

In today’s episode, Dane Dormio of MindBody Mastery, talks with us about why we need to keep our minds and bodies healthy in order to have successful lives and businesses.

Why is this important?
1. When we allow ourselves to get out of step with our bodies needs, we find ourselves dragging, no energy, our brains become sluggish and it’s a chore to even move one foot in front of the other.
2. As business owners and entrepreneurs, we need to be on our toes. We are always battling unforeseen obstacles, the ever changing processes and strategies that make our companies move ahead – without our health that becomes very difficult.
3. Life is full of ups and downs. When we do simple things like meditate for 5 minutes a day we can start out calmer, more in control and less stressed out.

If you have questions or would like to take a free health assessment, you can reach Dane by connecting with him on Facebook.

Episode 49: Step by Step Roadmap to Business Growth with Paul Maskill

Episode 49: Step by Step Roadmap to Business Growth with Paul Maskill

February 13, 2020

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. “
​–​ Benjamin Franklin

When we start our own businesses, it is usually just us. We are a one-person, “get R done”, continual motion creation that works non-stop to do everything required to make the business successful. But then, as we start to grow, it becomes harder and harder.

For our guest Paul Maskill, it was like “Yeah, it is so important to build a business that can thrive without you because you never know what's going to happen. For me, it was asking myself the question, what happens if I got hit by a bus? And the answer was not good because I was the sole responsible person for the success of the business.” He realized that if he was going to make his business sustainable, he was going to have to make some changes – things that would allow him to keep the doors open, the money coming in – even if he weren’t there.

Today’s conversation is all about the different ways to automate processes, what that means and how to best figure out what is right for you. Listen in as we chat with Paul Maskill.

Episode 46: Doing Our Best with JW Rayhons

Episode 46: Doing Our Best with JW Rayhons

January 23, 2020

“When you look for the good in someone; you’ll find it.”

Consistently high-performing teams achieve significantly more than what is imaginably possible.

As a leader, you may experience phases when your team is highly performing, firing on all cylinders, and at their best. During those time periods, you want to capitalize on that momentum and elevate your team to new levels of success. While leading teams, you may also find yourself in phases when your team is underperforming and needs a turn-around because there are significant milestones your organization is striving for.. This is how JW Rayhons, our guest today, starts out our conversation. He makes it clear that while he mostly works with teams, even a one-person team can fall into these two categories. It’s all in how you deal with the current situation that gets you to the next step on the journey.

There's going to be some unexpected things that are going to come up throughout the year on any given day. And so it really is how do I and anyone else go about staying focused on the things that they really want to accomplish? Really stay focused on the things that mean the most to them that are most important to them?

How should we focus our time and energy? First, we need to get very clear on what it is we want to accomplish and how we are going to accomplish that. Listen in as we talk more about the steps to happiness and success in your business.

Episode 45: Consistency is the Name of the Game with Bernadette Geyer

Episode 45: Consistency is the Name of the Game with Bernadette Geyer

January 16, 2020

Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time. - Bruce Springsteen

Consistency in the workplace creates accountability, enhances your reputation, and gives you an opportunity to measure results and make sure things are moving in a positive direction. But according to Bernadette Geyer, today’s guest, consistency comes down to things like your brand, the words you use in your marketing and even your actions where your customers see you acting and “being”. In other words, being consistent allows you to measure your results and your ROI. It gives you a form of accountability. Didn’t do something today that you were expected to do? Customers not happy? You weren’t consistent in your actions. And then, of course that helps in the creation of a business’ reputation, and on and on. Without consistent action and consistent structure within the very core of your company, you cannot be truly successful.

When it comes to hiring someone to take on the responsibilities of your written documentation such as a copywriter like Bernadette, it is even more important to have a form of consistency. The person you hire must understand and be able to sound like, and create wording that comes across in the voice of the person who they are working for. To make this clearer, let’s sit down, bring along a beverage of choice, and listen in as Bernadette and Nancy talk about being able to be consistent.

Episode 44: Fail to Success with Miha Matlievski

Episode 44: Fail to Success with Miha Matlievski

January 9, 2020

“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.” ― Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential

This is a great time of year to talk about failures and success. At the beginning of a new and shiny year, we are all excited to jump in and make magical things happen, and then somewhere down the road when everything slows down and the shiny has worn off we have a tendency to hit the brakes, put a stop to things and say “We’ve failed”. SIGH. I’m quitting. It just wasn’t worth it. The big BLACK looming sign of failure hangs over our heads and we slink away into the corners to hide in shame.

Yet, it is only by trying something, having it not work out the way we want it, and then trying again, do we ever truly succeed. Without these side steps and circles around we would never step out of our comfort zone. And that is truly where growth and forward momentum actually happen. According to today’s guest, Miha Mitlievski.

I don't necessarily consider them failures, as as much as I think of them as baby steps towards success. Because you know, when a baby starts to walk, they walk a couple of steps and they fall down. And then they pick themselves back up, and they walk another couple of steps and they fall down again.

Miha went from owning and running a multi-million dollar business to being just as much in debt. But that didn’t stop him. He got back up and started all over again. Now, he is well known in his new field, and is here with us to tell us how to fail to success. Grab a paper and pen, sit back with a good cup of something to drink, get ready for some dynamic notes, and enjoy the next hour!

Episode 43: Triumphing Over Business and Disability with Miro Wcislo

Episode 43: Triumphing Over Business and Disability with Miro Wcislo

December 19, 2019
 

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

Living life with depression and anxiety can be a horrible nightmare. There are many different levels of both. Some are easily pushed aside while others are totally debilitating. Added to that if you’re trying to run a successful business, it can feel like you are caught in a huge mud bog and you just can’t get your feet free. The harder you try, the more tired you get. You lose your energy,your joy, and you just want to give up and sink down into the pit. Today’s guest, Miro Wcislo tells us how he feels when he says “every single day is a battle every second is a battle.”

Throughout this talk, he tells us about his supportive parents, his days before the disability started, and how he has struggled and succeeded in creating a very successful business even though he has had to deal with a continuing situation.

Sit back, grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and listen in (btw – you’ll want to take notes today), while we chat with Miro.

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

Episode 42: Disabled to ENabled with Jessie Ace

December 12, 2019

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -Francis of Assisi

According to Business.com, self-employment is a very popular choice among people with disabilities. The Small Business Administration reported that 12.2 percent of the general population chose self-employment, and 14.3 percent of people with disabilities started businesses recently. Most of them have not lived their entire lives with their illness, but somewhere along the line they have been injured or received a diagnosis for something that has made their life different. More difficult. Something extra that they have had to learn to deal with along the way. And when you add owning and running a business life can become much more than just challenging. 

Just like not being a successful business owner out of the gate, managing a disability or chronic illness takes time to figure out and to get a grip on. And for some, that never happens. But for those who have the determination and the will power to accomplish what they truly want, these women business owners not only survive but thrive!

Today’s guest, Jessie Ace, is one of those that has it figured out. Listen in as she talks about the challenges and the accomplishments she has had throughout her years with multiple sclerosis.

Okay, um, so, okay, so I've kind of mastered this this thing because sometimes so having multiple sclerosis is really unpredictable. Sometimes you can wake up and feel like you’ve run three marathons in your sleep, and sometimes you can feel kind of okay, but it's never like, Oh, I feel amazing today. - Jessie Ace

Episode 41: The Magic of Writing a Book with Suzanne Doyle-Ingram

Episode 41: The Magic of Writing a Book with Suzanne Doyle-Ingram

December 5, 2019

There are many reasons to write a book but, according to Brian Tracy, “the biggest reason was to spread my message about subjects that I felt very passionate about.”

Most people start out to write the American novel, but it’s not all that easy. Thousands of books are submitted for publication each year, and only a few are chosen. You can find a publisher, you can self-publish, or you can find someone that leads you through the process and gets your book out there for others to read.

However, as the quote above states, the best reason to publish a book is to let people know your message and what your knowledge and experience are all about. And, believe it or not, you will probably NOT make a lot of money from this endeavor. Even if you get it on the shelves of Barnes and Noble or Amazon, very little in royalties will come to you. Where you do make the money is through showing people what your business is, what you teach, how you make a living, etc. Listen in as today’s guest Suzanne Doyle-Ingram shares with us her years of experience in helping others to do their best and to get those books hiding inside us out into the public.
