35 Burst results for "Hustle"
How can I get an ebook cover designed?
"Hey Chris, this is Britney from Madison Alabama and I've been listening to your show for two years. Now, I'm thinking about starting a side hustle. I want to publish my husband's sci-fi short stories and books on kindle direct publishing. My question is where can we get affordable editing and cover design? Do you believe this could be profitable? Thank you for hearing answer. Hey Brittany. Thank you so much for listening in Madison Alabama. I used to live there many years ago. Fun Fact. Now, this is a two part question technically a three part question. So as for the cover design, that part is pretty simple. So book cover design isn't establish subcategory on work for hire sites like fiber and up work I think it's totally fine to go to one of those sites and hire somebody to do the work there, and it will be quite affordable. You can get a good quality design with several revisions for a couple of hundred dollars at most, and they're probably going to be some options to pay a lot less depending on where you hire the person from some agencies working on uproar Cav hundreds of people in overseas locations where the price can be quite low. Now editing is a different matter because with editing I wouldn't just randomly hire someone you should I think about what you're looking for or your husband just thinking about it since he's the writer but maybe in some combination, are you guys looking for a developmental editor that somebody who will read through in suggests structural changes to improve the flow of the book? Are you looking for a copy editor who will go line by line and make lots of picky suggestions which are often helpful. I always have this love hate relationship with my copy editors. Or are you just looking for a proof reader? To catch those Pesky Typos. That you tend to miss or your husband at tends to miss because you've been close to the work for so long that happens to me all the time to. Write eight drafts a book, and then review it over and over and yet there's still some typos that somehow I missed just because I'm seeing the same things over and over. So those editing functions are not the same and most editors tend to specialize in one or the other. There's some others as well, but you want to understand first of all, what you're trying to accomplish I think that's the best advice there and last but not least Brittany also ask if this could be a profitable activity. Now, that is an entirely different question that's something totally different. Short version. There is I don't think this is the quickest road to making money. I, mean. We have had some stories of people doing sci-fi fantasy stuff and have been able to make some money with. But. I'm imagining in this case husband start writing his stories with that as the primary goal. So I tend to think of it as you want if a writer, you want share your work. That's great. Go do it and if it ends up being profitable. Consider that a bonus.

Interview With Phil Penman
"When you decide to go into business for yourself, it's as much about your hustle as it is about your talent. Skilled and talented as you may be if you're hustle is not on point. You are going to struggle not only getting into the game but also staying in it. Phil Penman understands that which is why he's managed to establish himself as a celebrity street and commercial photographer. The links that he had to go to his Paparazzi could make the difference between getting the shot or not, but also more importantly the difference of thousands rather than hundreds of dollars. That kind of work is not for the faint of heart especially when it involves negotiating the streets of new. York. City on a bicycle. But as Phil understands, you've gotta do what you gotTa do this is Ebonics and welcome back to they candid frame. Jones, thanks for making time for me. I appreciate it. Thanks for your patience and finally getting round here. Thank you for inviting me I. So you're up you're up to like five, hundred, twenty, eight. So is man gets because you sent me your book months ago. I, talked to my wife who's that producer to try and make sure that we got you in somewhere but it can be quite the juggle because there's so many people that consider. Really I love the Book I love your story but one thing that's fascinating in before we get into talking to you about your photography is just like man you have held so many jobs. So many things. List as well. So it was just was just the the nature of being like a hustler that you were just like just did what you needed to do in order to get by that is that why you? or so many different at one hundred percent of house. So when I was in college I was studying photography and a box. If Alford like a hundred sheets for safe thirty pounds and that's a of money to a college student and you having to crank this week off the week. So I had I would study and I had to free jobs that I was doing waller's in college. So in the daytime, I would serve lunches to like rich preppy boy, Colt prep school kids at a nearby like boy school than a night I worked in a bar and unlike club four nights a week, and then the weekend I used to work even Lego land or Twickenham rugby Stadium. So I would literally our work all day through the night and then have like free hours sleep got a college study as. You did this casino the the bitch would be like we used to do five transparency. Not only will take was the chew to say, have to stop off and the fuck that's enough free. Way, worked in the bar and he go pay to twenty an hour. Like notes it. Hasso Hasso. When you're young. You don't need that much sleep exactly now I'm just like I'm Pasta by seven o'clock. So, when did you get the bug? When did you discover that you wanted to study photography in photographer it was my backup believe it or not i. was fifteen and I wanted to be a sports teacher. My Dad was like, well, you got to have a backup. And he was a professor I so I kind of I grew up with a darkroom and seeing prints in the bath tub being washed and stuff. So he's like, hello go for this newspaper, pick out the picture the you think and if if I agree with you then I'll let you study photography as a backup and I ended up being a terrible sports teacher so You know I virtually failed sports studies by a my photography. So I'm like that's the way man to find out that photography is your fallback. It's funny. Because most people it's like. Repeats the first choice, not the second. It's like my lap was always insistent on you always have a backup everything. So that was my backup and then. Studied like the next freeze I guess and then. Started working straightaway into. Work you started doing initially. I did a year as a local newspaper photographer where it was tree, we do a jobs today and it would be like they had us going every thirty minutes. So you're driving around hundred miles per hour from job to job walk in the room sheet the paycheck next job, and it was like a fos learning cup. So you'd be like sports, events, politicians, babies, presentations, and then I landed a job working for news agency where I was doing hard news but I'm still doing. I basically landed a GIG. She will the cool proportion shift for Microsoft and like I like twenty, one years old and boss was worked for is making so much money from that the it was great for him. So I did I did about six months with him and then I got the opportunity to work for A. Company in Los, Angeles and just jumped
L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club
"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau. Natalie, wood reading a role for the same film at the age of sixteen. When able with a direct. Ray Hotel. She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.
The Most Dangerous Fruit in America
"To start our watermelon adventure, we called one of the world's great watermelon. Harry Paris he has worked on watermelon science per years as part of Israel's agricultural research. Service. Well, I think the first thing that comes to the first two syllables water right? This is a true rich table. which has a lot of water and which actually probably the first use by people of this particular natural products. Was To quench thirst I've spent summers in Israel, and it is basically watermelon paradise but that's not actually were Harry I fell in love with a watermelon it all started when his dad grew watermelons in the backyard in their home in Brooklyn in the nineteen sixties then Harry gave watermelon farming himself fifteen years old and there was a new variety called Crimson sweets that came out and plans at a few seats in the garden and Lo and behold by the fall we got one nice big sweet high quality watermelon fruit. That we grew in the backyard in Brooklyn and from then on I was just hoped. Harry was well ahead of the local war hipster curve in Brooklyn but the watermelon is neither from Brooklyn nor from Israel, in fact, its origins are a little bit of a mystery. One of the big headlines was back in the mid nineteenth century when the British explorer David Livingstone went to the southern African deserts and low and behold. It was the year in which there was more rain than average and he found a large areas just covered with wild watermelons. He's wild watermelons were hard but does the name says have water say to pound them and so on and so forth but you could squeeze the water out of them David Livingston was searching for the source of the Nile. But apparently, he was also as a side hustle looking for other sources like the source of our sweet watermelons and people thought he'd founded the wild ancestor but Livingston was wrong about the source of the Nile and as it turns out now. We know he was wrong about those wild watermelons to now that scientists can examine the DNA of melons. They found that the Kalahari desert wild melon that Livingston came upon is not the ancestor of our sweet watermelon. But DNA is just one of the tools that scientists are using to try to figure out where and when the watermelon was domesticated, you can't just use one approach. You have to use an archaeology approach you have to use clients science you have to use. Linguistics you have to go into literature some of it'll some of an ancient. And even more than that. Of course, with the latest that we know genetics and genome can assist us first of all the plant Science Livingston was at least on the right continent because there are wild watermelons of various different species all over. Africa. So the wild relatives watermelon their fruits are smaller and rounder not elongate. They have often perfectly round it small fruits the outside looks like a watermelon like little, green and white. But inside they all have this extremely bitter and usually white. Whitish pulpits azan Renner is a professor of biology at the University of Munich and she's another one of the world's watermelon expert Suzanne's as you could boil these Super Beta watermelons for jam or you could use them medicinally as kind of a purge to clean out your insides. Basically, the wild watermelon wasn't a tasty thing to eat raw at all. So where the desert watermelon comes from, there are two things that have to happen to these bitter wild melons to turn them into the watermelons. We love today to specific genetic mutations. The first one is a mutation. That switches off the production of bitchy chemicals and so this mutation occurs in nature as bad for the plan because the plant of course has this bitterness to defend itself not eaten so that the fruits would not be yeah for the plan is better to lose the bitterness but for us, it's good and we can only imagine that native people every once in a while tried one of these melons maybe for what may be hoping for something to chew on and found some that wasn't bitter Suzanne's scientists know what that mutation is and how to find it in. A melon they just to look and the second mutation is the one that turned it red inside rather than white the red colors also well understood this is well studied and it's a completely different set of teens. This is and other scientists know exactly which two mutations they're looking for. Those mutations aren't common and wild melon. So when did they happen? When were watermelons domesticated Harry says the place to look for those clues is archaeology in ancient Egyptian tombs. Archaeologists have found paintings of whole watermelons on a platter there oblong and striped watermelons today not round like the. Wild bitter ones but did those ancient Egyptian watermelons taste like the ones we eat did they have the mutations for sweetness and maybe for the red color the painting can't really tell you that. But fortunately, some other watermelon evidence has showed up in a four thousand year old Egyptian tomb complex the seeds and leaves from the tomb ended up at the q Royal Botanic Gardens in England Suzanne wanted to find out if those remains held any clues about whether the watermelon had already been domesticated by them. So she wrote to mark Nesbitt who coincidentally starred in our tonic. And who runs the economic botany collection at Q. and she asked if she could borrow a watermelon leaf from the tomb, it was in a glass box encased in a box and he opd mark opened it, and he said it hadn't been opened since eighteen seventy one or whenever singles arrived there then and her colleagues analyzed demand the leaf and I they were thrilled the watermelon leaf DNA did in fact, have the mutations that would have made the fruit sweet and read but then when you see fourteen Dating for this material that we had received for Mark Nesbitt, it turned out it was much younger than we thought it turns out the watermelon material in the two had been left there by a later visitor carbon dating showed it was from the late eighteen hundreds huge bummer.

Stupid. I. Wish I had a cow bell or something fun like a slide whistle. Lou. We've got to. Invest. tweets we. GotTa we gotTa have old school sound sound makers in the attic. We have from my own, Omega the nineteen in the nineteen fifties. They had these like New Year's Eve noisemakers. Those would have been great. was. Groggy. From there like the sound makers that. Yeah. Fun fact all right. Everybody. Last year, as you may remember, Jesse and I attended the makers conference craft -cation in California. And we met so many new friends. So one night, there was a bit of an east coaster meet up. and. I met a really cool crafter and fellow podcast with a show called studio seventy eight podcast, and she is fabulous and finally hanging with us right now. So please everyone. Let's give a warm craft hanging out. Welcome to New Shea Snow Welcome. So excited to be on your pie gas. You guys. Interviewed so many amazing guests on like I feel like honored. Show big time. Stop. So, let's just start off with the basics. Can you tell our craft? Reno's a little bit about who you are and what you do? Absolutely, my name's initiates now been a crafter for life since elementary school. My mom is a crafter to end up going to school for graphic design and my nine to five is billy me dealing with you know designers and web designers and all of that good stuff. Stuff. But on nights and weekends I, just loved to podcasts. Do My side hustles and I've had many many side hustles through the years. But I like making stuff just creating stuff and I'm just like you guys. I just love talking to people in sharing their stories and inspiring women to like pursue their passions be at full time or part time or all the time. So yeah, that's me in a nutshell. So. That podcast, you get to have lots of conversations with creatives and how does that inspire you? Oh. My goodness I mean, you know sometimes I feel like when I get off of an interview with him, like I need to step it up. Just. Wait a minute like, but it inspires me because you can throw around ideas because a lot of times you know people tell me like what marketing tips worked for them or how they ended up making connections in in order to get their Khumbu show line off, you know just started or maybe how they weren't. Initially, artists didn't go to school for design. But now they're like selling design in the narrow inspiring people to like just do what you love. Love in. So for me, I, feel like with each guest. I just pick up like a little tip a little trick, and it just inspires me to want to do more. You know some, that's super rats. I feel the same way with some of our guests. But okay, who's your favorite guest and Y ou? That's that's a hard one. That's a heroin. So if if any gas listened to listening to this and I don't name, you don't get offended. But I actually had her on for a second time. Her name is Nicole crowder. and. She's in the DC area with knee to, and recently she's actually just blown up but the pillow one. Yes. Mention Pillow, right? Yeah. Because she she does the meditation pillows and you know she first started out where she was, you know doing upholstery and teaching people how to upholster their old furniture in an her story. You know she talks about like working a nine to five. Then trying to do her love full-time, it didn't work out, went back to a nine to five, and then she started again when I first interviewed her and man she like learned from all the failures and then took what she learned and she's just being going going going and. And even when I interview her few months ago is wow. So just talking to her, I was so inspired, I love seeing her Kinda like blow up the last couple of months, and even how she did the meditation pillow, she initially was just giving them out for free because of cove nineteen everybody was going through a hard time and she was like, Hey, pay what you can, you can't pay anything. I'll I'll give these to you right analysis set, and this has become like heart of her business. So yes, she's like amazing.
Should I self-publish a mental health guidebook on Kindle?
"Hi. Crazy. So Kenya, from Mexico thankful the generals were if you're putting out there every day. So as a former reporter, one of the things I'm good at actually love doing these creating content into an indepth research. I'm passionate about human behavior and mental health topics. I just started two months ago, trauma informed interview based CAST. So I don't want to use that platform to make enough right now. I do want to capitalize on my research skills to run a nonfiction, e Book Guy With curated mental health tools that can help people navigate these weird stressful. Times I've been doing my ellen bridge, but I want each down. So my question is it self published kindle? Even a smart move. What would you suggest do if I don't have a huge following on not even a meal east solar promote guide as mentioned before I'm just getting started with the thought because I don't Wanna use that platform now to make an offer and considering something similar as you shared your once you six episode. Thank you. Crews have a great week and Stacey. Thank you so much of India. So glad you're out there. Hope you are staying safe as well. So what comes first the followers or? The thing is about Amazon, the point of Amazon isn't to sell your followers. To reach New People. So if you already have people who are going to buy from you, they're like, yes, I, want this book. I want this, whatever it is. You don't necessarily need to send him to Amazon. Amazon can do at least when it works, and of course, it doesn't always. But when it works is introduced your work to lots of new audiences like that. That is the goal of something like Amazon. So hitting mentioned episode one, thousand six and went back to look at that episode was entitled Layoff Leads Journalists To build kindle e Book Empire. And, the model used in that episode didn't rely it all on the person having a lot of followers. However, I'm also not sure that it's the most accurate comparison because in that story, the journalists was publishing a lot of different short guides and books. In some ways, almost agnostic about what topic she was writing about. It was all about figuring out how to work the system to find the right topics quite buried. So when something works, she did more of that. If it didn't work than, she just did less of it whereas Hannah's doing, she has an actual message that she wants to share. So the topic is important. Therefore it's also important for her to build a community over time. So, when I hear her say, she doesn't want to use the new podcast to promote a paid product. I totally understand that, but I would use it to promote the platform. I would use it to promote the community. I would start that email list and encourage people to join. Don't be discouraged that you don't have it yet. The whole point is to start building it. So no matter what you do next that will help I. think that's true for everyone out there. In this situation, if you have a message that you're trying to get out there building that platform trying to start that community that's going to be ultimately more important than whether, you choose to publish this thing on kindle or how you develop a podcast or whatever other medium you go into. Ask for the direct question of whether, she should sell published on kindle or not. I would just say you know it's up to her. It might be worth a try as long as she doesn't expect it to be a tremendous success right away. But more important since she hasn't message to share to focus on building that community, and over time you have different outlets for it. You have two podcasts got the books. You've got something else. But the central point of all of it is that message. So in the long term, it's not so important about which tactics are which medium. Building that community sharing that message.
My Biggest Lessons From 4 Million Podcast Downloads
"Tae Guys, it is Michaela here and I'm back with another solo episode I. Hope You guys are doing well protecting your energy and protecting your piece. It's so so important especially right now you guys this is the Mossel episodes I have done in a while and maybe doing for a while because we're going to get back to our interviews with side. Hustler's turn entrepreneurs however however. I definitely wanted to jump back in and share my experience giving birth during a pandemic have been doing juggling up getting back to being a mom for Noor and just how I'm easing back into a podcast life, my work life and I'm glad I've been able to catch you guys up and also catch all of you new listeners. Shout you guys for joining the journey as well. the last episode I shared how I did it turning a podcast into a full time business and this episode I want to share the lessons I have learn overall journey podcasting. So four years and four million downloads. Later, this is going to be my breakdown of what I really think contributes to my success. When I was starting out on this journey I, didn't know where it would lead. Of course I had dreams and everyone who starts something you want it to be well received you wanted to be big you want it to be so successful. So of course, I had those thoughts but I also thought that I was hoping to gain inspiration from my guests and figure out what to use my talent. What kind. Of Business to start with talents that have the skills that I have, I did not think that I would focus on the podcast itself and ended up leaving my job two podcasts full-time. So that was a surprising life turn. I tested things out empty always work and in a lot of trial and error I also learned through spending time researching my ideas researching my industry and investing my own money into training conferences. And classes to learn more and then put what I learned into practice immediately and emphasis emphasis emphasis on the word practice because there was no one who had a specific blueprint for what I went to do like once I figured out that I wanted to scale my podcast with certain level. There was no class that I could take that taught me that exactly that's why I teach what I know now podcast Mongols. Because here, I have the blueprint I've done it and I'm doing it and I wanna make it easier for everyone else rather than trying to piecemeal information from all different sources So the practice was essential and now as I reflect, I can identify some of the key factors that have allowed me to have a successful podcast. So here goes, I, have divided it into lessons for y'all already. So lesson number one. Don't be afraid to be known for something for Steinhaeuser pro podcast is about black women entrepreneurs who scaled from side-hustle two fulltime entrepreneur myself included. I'm not afraid to be known for that nor do I shy away from focus on black women because it may make someone else uncomfortable the people who need this show the people who listen to this show span, all races and genders. Okay but but but sir. The reason I focus in on black women and the reason I focused on that specific specific topic is because I want people to understand what this show is about you will have. No. Problem sharing this with somebody else because I. Make It crystal clear what we talk about. So often when my podcast moguls members joined the program, one of the first questions I asked him is what is your podcast about and often they tell me two or three different things Oh i WanNa talk about leadership in corporate America also WanNa talk about you know dating with my girlfriend bring her on as a guest and then i WanNa talk about I don't know travel. And always have to say we weightless. Let's roll it on back in the stroller back because. You are doing this as a catchall because you're afraid to be known for something. This is when we have to work together to refine their podcast topic. What's often behind their answer and their topic being so broad so vague and Goose for a better word. Is there fear of being pigeonholed? But when you are known for something, you're just floating around in the podcast categories not really fitting in nut grabbing anyone's attention because they have no idea how your show will help them how your show entertain them and you're just making your life harder. What is the use of having a show? If no one knows what it's about then they? Can't recommend it. One of the keys to the growth of sidelines Appro is that it was specific and specific things are sharable and sharable things are scalable. So do not be afraid to dig deep and be known for something because if someone can't walk away from listening to your podcast and tell someone else in one sentence, what is about then it's going to be very hard for you. So own your topic.
Al Roker Cooks Up a Storm
"Al Welcome to Milk Street. Well, it's good to be your Chris good to chat with you. You were born in Queens about the same time I was I won't mention the year. and. You said from my mother I got a slightly twisted sense of humor and for my dad I got the. Work. Ethic. What was her sense of humor like? Well it was it was a little biting. It was a little sarcastic you know. For example she thought it was funny. She would kind of sing operatic style but make up. A language and my friends author she was speaking some foreign language. Singing it. At the time I thought it was highly embarrassing but you know I've kind of come to appreciated. Your Dad. There's a great story in your book where you're going to take the driving test. Yeah, you know. It was one of those things where we we were literally going for the road test. And He said, you know I don't really think that good. Your broken U-TURN. Let me see. You do a broken u-turn and you know I kinda got through the turn and. Instead of stepping on the brake I stepped on the gas. And my dad very quietly just break break break as we go over the curb, we run through our neighbors prized Rhododendron Bush break, and he never raised his voice really and I finally kind of snapshot of Him stepped on the break. And he goes goes all right again. So We back off the lawn over the Bush and then he's okay leave a note for Mr. Rain. And we leave a note and then I went and took my driver's test and by the way past, and then afterwards you know the next day patched up as long went to the nursery a bought a new Bush planted it and apologized. One of your themes in your blood is don't give up your first job as a weatherman. You say the book I wouldn't stop until I. got the job or be when the issued a restraining order against me since you were relentless. And as you said, you got the job not because you were necessarily the best candidate, but you just hustle. I hustled more and like in the case of of my first job doing weekend weather I was cheap I was a college student. You know the news director Santa can afford a drunk or a college student and I was making ten dollars a newscast So you know but but I kept calling and kept calling him and he turned out to be a terrific mentor. You've done a lot of interesting segments over the years but I particularly love the Daniel Balut episode where you go work in the restaurant one night and someone comes up to you and says, see that expletive on right there. If you don't get that out now I'm GonNa stab you in the eye with a bone nights. You know because it's the a penny of civility and gentility fine dining at its at its best very quiet hushed tones and then you're you go in the kitchen and I'm just stunned they're not bringing people out in bodybags. You know it's like and I was I was petrified. Yeah, we did this segment where Danielle balloon was going to do the weather and I would step in as a chef on a Friday night pre theater dinner. Like, what was I thinking?
J.Lo's Money Moves
"Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez not only are they dominating the real estate game you buys but they recently dropped reported three hundred million bucks on a bid for the New York mets and as if they. Needed any more side-hustle. They've also reportedly invested in Viagra wellness startup. How much is too much Nina Hunter, how much telling me? Well, this is the thing I was looking at all the money that they were spitting on these properties I. Think like they're selling this property, but they also have like a ten million dollar house in Bel? Air They have a twenty eight million dollar house. In the Hamptons like it's insane but then I looked at their net worth and I think a rod was I really it was worth some coin but he's worked almost as much as her. He's worth like three, hundred, million dollars and she's over three, hundred and fifty million. So. They're almost a billion dollars together and also when they fail three hundred online, you always add fifty more just between us. Is. A little more. That's the case. Then according to these websites, I'm worth fifty, million and five, hundred, thousand dollars. Which? Now, ladies want to get in. Now's the chance fifty, million, five, hundred I do think there is this weird world where like of course they're investing, they want to go ahead and use their money helps having three hundred million dollars in a bank account making very little interest as opposed to investing in something that actually believe in like. The mets because no one believes in the mets but John. Lewis State is going to go up like crazy always and they're investing in areas that are not going to go down. It makes sense. It's just a matter of how much money do you
How to charge for a travel service post-quarantine?
"Chris my name is John and I have a question at the Cross section of travel and side hustles and I thought who better to ask than you. My friend I've been exploring places for me in a someone very close to me to visit. She's on the west coast of the US and and I'm on the East Coast and with all the quarantining, we're really excited to be able to get out and meet up and see each other here soon. I've really enjoyed the process of scouring flights and times and dates to cities within our budgets and I'd like to do this as a side hustles for others. In the same boat, I really have enjoyed it I love connecting people, and it's just checks a lot of ox for me. So my question is it's a two parter. How would you recommend I charge for such a service and also what are ways that I could find clients in people in the same boat? Thanks keep fighting the good fight Chris. We need now more than ever a lot of uncertainty and I always love your message and I always loved the great work you and your team doing. John Thank you so much create that and you are needed to graduations on being our first ever. Listener question or repeat listener caller not repeat listener question has mentioned. So, let's talk about this idea I think the challenge here is, what is the service exactly because just thinking about it very practically sites like kayak dot com, Google flights probably some others have pretty developed filters that will show people in real time like all the different for flight deals from different cities. So if you're like I'm in Los Angeles I want to go you somewhere in the Midwest and you know, I'm not sure what the best deals are. There are there are filters that show you that immediately. Same thing if you're coming in the east coast, I don't know if there's something that shows somebody exactly like where to meet in the middle or like you know where the most. Budget. Optimal location could be for two people coming from different parts of the country. But that's really specific I. Think a lot of this data is available and because it's real time, it's kind of hard to beat that. You know like anybody can go and see it and learn most of what they need to know. The only thing I can think of is the model that Charlotte McGee started with her business called whisk away episode three, forty, six ESL teacher turned travel planner since clients unsurprised vacations. In her business, she's doing quite a lot of research in terms of not just picking the city but also lots of activities and overall itinerary. In some cases planning the entire trip or someone. So there could be something there in terms of what to charge. I think maybe a flat fee is probably best not trying to do this hourly or something, but just here's my flat fee for this particular. Service. But as I said I think it will be difficult to say my services showing long-distance couples or friends where they can meet up. I think you'll have to go further than that. So maybe a good question to consider is what else to other people in this situation need. I don't know exactly what the answer is. John is in that situation. So he probably does or at least it wouldn't be that hard to figure it out.
Stephanie Fleming on organization, life hacks, and how she built 'The Happy Planner' and 'Me & My Big Ideas'
"Are so excited to. To introduce incredible Stephanie Fleming. She is a creative entrepreneurs speaker of and wellness seeker. Most notably, she is the CO founder of me and my big ideas creator of the happy planner, and what began twenty years ago as a tiny garage business is now an industry leading lifestyle brand and offers a wide variety of products that inspire customers to live creatively and plan a happy life. Please welcome Stephanie to the show. Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was. Experiencing entrepreneurship right in front of my is growing up but I never really knew it. In fact, my mom was in charge of all of the creative side of the business, and was the one in charge of new products, and out there trying to find out what creative women were doing next, and so when my mom would go on an rnd shopping trip and take all of us with her. We didn't realize what we were doing was watching her shopping trends and seeing what was out in fashion, and how we can bring that into the craft and creative industries, so when it just seemed like something natural, and now I'm trying to identify people go. Where do you find your trend Mic-? Just Watch I. Just look and so yeah. We were Kinda groomed without knowing that that's what was happening. So cool and so. You had your first business you? You began doing that twenty years ago. And then you landed to the happy planner, which has been a huge success and It's a it's a beautiful book. It's something that you want to. Hold in your hand, and just like carry with you all the time. It's so cute and fashionable. Where did that idea come from? And how? How did you of get to that point? Where like I want to be in this market of making planners? Happy like honestly we've had a lot of great products that of sold weller mckellen's pretty cool, but the happy planner is like it's so me. It's totally me so the the way we came up with. It was pretty much the same process that we did it with anything. As we and my sister is heavily involved in product about men in our company as well, but we watch in decide okay. scrapbooking was huge for a while, and so we were able to kind of ride that. That wave and we've kept coming out with products and line extensions and and then you kind of see that it was kind of starting to taper off. It was not as popular and the products weren't as weren't selling and going doing the having the sell through that they did before, so we're like okay. We need to know what creative women are doing next. which is what my mom did, so we would always be looking for what. What what do i WanNa do what is something that's interesting for me. and and then also kind of searching pinterest looking around water, creative women doing so for some reason on pinterest people were taking just regular planners from staples, or whatever and they were putting our scrapbooking products, stickers and things and making them cute but the scrapbooking don't really fit like they don't fit size-wise. They didn't fit if you're you know the stickers we were. Were to commemorate memories and things, and that's not necessarily the things that you need for planning so I kind of just you know, and they were boring to staples like office supply things. They have black brown different color bays. You know really great. You know what I think. Someone would would think the businessmen would like. And then there was like three designs that were like purple. Paisley or some ugly grandma color. You know I'm a woman, I. I don't want that, so we thought definitely we could do better in design. We could get them more affordable. We could create accessories that would go specifically for them, and then you could put in those accessories like things that are positive so that every single day when you're planning when you're having fun putting stickers out ever, there's this creative positive message that makes you happy that keeps you going, and so it was just a kind of another. Offshoot into what we normally do. What are creative women doing? And at this point? It was like people are busy, and they want to be creative, but they need that little bit of licensed to say it's okay when you're planning your schedule. You can kind of put a sticker downer. Says you can do it or just. Those little positive affirmations make a make a big difference. I love that so much were all about positive affirmations and There's something that I still love about having a planner in front of me like an organizational planner. Where where I. Can you know touch the pages and I can mark things off. It's so different than a calendar on Google you know and I've always I've i. still have a planner, so I love that, but I'm curious because you have built such a successful brand and obviously. You've separated yourself in so many ways by having something very unique You offer as something that's very I would say year to the millennial woman. But how how have you separated yourself with your branding? I'm just so curious about like where your sales come from utilizing social media, you have a huge social media following. So, how what kind of what was your? What was the method to your madness at that point when you started thinking ahead? Yeah, so at that point. We had we had a very successful company in the craft industry and up? Until that point, we had what I figured successful products. We didn't really have necessarily like brand. Following social media was just coming up, but you know there was something about the happy, and I think my own personal passion for the product helped in planning it. No Pun intended. because. I feel like we got to this place or like this product line. I just feel like we need to be able to have a brand. There's gotta be a message behind because the message of the product is so powerful and so really. What happened I mean there wasn't? A Master Plan I love this product so much. That I just started talking about it and sharing on social media back in the periscope days. You remember, periscope yeah. Remember. About it and I just said you know what I would anytime we would come up with something, or we had something new exciting happening in office. I'd like I'm just GONNA share. It's just going to be I wanted to our product and the brand to feel like like we were just friends sharing like. If I was you know to call you up and say Oh, my Gosh I'm so excited. We just got this prototype in, and here's what it looks like. Here's how I'm going to use it and every. Every new products came in. We previewed it on periscope did live Q. and A. is, and and that's before people really doing that and we were sharing the process and the product, and sharing my excitement, geeking out over stickers and a paper planner you know, so. It became I thought there was really no plan other than to share authentically, and that was really before, but you know everything authenticity be authentic was just such a overused catchphrase, but that's what it was because I didn't actually want to be the spokesperson. For our company, and because it's such a team effort, and so I'm not. I'm not maybe maybe I wouldn't had the idea for. Let's let's look into to paper planners, but I didn't create designs, and I not the artist, and I'm not the one who source the product and sold it in such a team so but. In order I felt so passionately that. Don't have relationships with companies. They don't have relationships with products, but they have relationships with people and brands, and if I could be that conduit. To Give A. Personality to our land our company then. I'm like all right. I'm willing to do because I was the one before it was like no, I don't really want to know I'm just I'm fine to not do it, but when I was sharing something, I was so passionate about the following just came. We did not say hey. We want to get to I. Think we're over six hundred thousand on instagram. We didn't have a plan for that. I mean eventually to grow. It takes you get to a certain point. It's like okay now. You have to plan, but we grew our numbers very very organically, and by just engaging with them. You know true engagement and it's. It's not even just the number in the plan, but it's like. Are you engaged? Do you care about your followers? Do you care about your customers and deal you know? Are you engaging that way? Are you doing it for the rise near following? Are you doing it for the sale? Are you doing? Are you doing it because this? Just feel so right to you know. Yeah while you're on that topic, too. Because so cool that you grew organically because. I mean it's such an easily marketable product, but also like how how do you stand out amongst your competitors are? There's other planner companies out there. So what's your differentiating factor with your product? So at the beginning? We were the only ones pretty much doing what we did, so we stood out really quick, and it's almost like I. Always say like it was like. Like when I had my first when I said WHO's very well behaved typical. I am such a good mom. And then my daughter came a second, and she is like great, but she's you know totally like wild spirit and I'm like oh my gosh. I need to to work at this little more. So when we did when all of a sudden you're like It's growing and you're thinking. Oh, my gosh is great. People are just listening, and then all of a sudden when you're onto something, people and other brands and other companies go. They're onto something I. Think I'm going to try that, too. And then what you were doing so authentically is being duplicated right so. So what we have always done I think and even back in the scrapbooking and paper. Crafting days was just advice. My mom gave me is just really don't worry too much about what other people are doing. Find out what you uniquely do. What is it that your company or your brand do what do you? How do you stand out and for US There's a lot of people who have high end stationary and people. People that are saying a professional and I want it to look like this or I. Don't like this about your as well. This is who we are. We are colorful and fun and were affordable. We have a disc bound system where you can change things in and out, and those are some things honestly and with the brand that will turn people off when you really claim like who you are. Some people are going to say. Well, I. Don't know but I. don't like that well, but this is who we are when you can really find that those are the things that just kind of narrowed down, and you nail it down so much that these are the things that make us unique, and so for us. We embraced all of that. That is who we are fun and colorful, positive and an interchangeable, and all these things about the product and about our messaging. That's what we focused on, and I think even especially going forward when it becomes harder and you. Maybe at this point, we're going like you see a slowing in not just gaining followers as fast when you get up high. And there's more people in the space so for us it's how can we find? What, we, what is it that we offer? That's unique whether it's the message product. And, you kind of have those pillars of our being authentic. Is it something that's different or are we just white noise in the space? Should we be making a change? We be pivoting. Right now do. Is there something we need to be doing to be more aware of the surroundings of the economy of this of society so You're constantly looking for you have to just be aware. Of who you are where you're going and not being paying too much attention to. The competitors and the people aside. It's really hard though it's hard to do because you find yourself looking. They're doing so good over there. Maybe I should change and go that way so knowing who you are is a huge part of that success for us. And, I love how you really made an emphasis on. Being okay with not being a good fit for everyone, and you know we talk about this even on social media. How you know people always give us questions on. You know my Gosh I I lost if I don't post for three days. I'll lose one hundred followers well if those people want on, follow you because you haven't posted three days. They're not your people. Like they were never people anyway, so I love that you have you have a focus and you understand your branch so well. The you know who you're catering to, and also you mentioned pivoting when you need to because. You know I think that people get so focused on the end goal, and if it's not if it doesn't turn out exactly how they anticipated that it would be, they give up right, so I think that's I. Love that so much and it kind of brings me to my next question on. The hardships entrepreneurship because I think that when people look from the outside, they see this beautiful brand that you've built a successful mom who's who's doing it all, but it takes so much work and behind the scenes that the people don't see. Can you walk us through some of those hardships that you faced in how you've kind of gotten through them? Oh yeah and I think. I'm so glad you brought that up because you especially on social media, people will see their, so they'll say. Where were you because I'm pretty active on my own, and then also I with the happy planner, but it like where were you? We Miss John there. I'm like you guys like if I would have shown. What I was doing for the past seven days, it was get up in the morning. Go to work. Stay there till seven o'clock have like meetings altay come home barely figure how I'm going to get the door dash before I wanna fall asleep, and then you know over it over and over again and I'm like it's not glamorous. It's hard There's a lot that goes into it. You know and you have to love it if you are somebody who has your own business or your own brand? You have to love it because it is not I mean I would say. Ninety, eight percent of it's not glamorous, but it's rewarding. You know it's something that you love, but you're GONNA have failures. You can't be afraid to work hard and fail. Because, you're GONNA. Do both of those all the time? And you know and learning from your from your failures for me. It's like you know we've had products that the ones that you've mentioned like happy planner that quadrupled the size of our business in the matter of two years But in the in between, and we had already had like a pretty successful company, and we were like well, but what you don't see, are all of the things where you come out with the product and you're like that's a dog. You Know Kate next. What do we? Can we learn from that? You know that's what you can't. You can't shy away from it, but nobody wants to see that nobody, but those are the lessons. Are you know what you're seeing? When when you see the happy planner is our success of you know Gosh over twenty we did that. It was fifteen years. I think into the our business before we hit that like Grand Slam, we'd had several. You know that was. This product was a triple. This one was a strikeout. This one was a base hit. And then you know, we never know we not. Even we're not even. Promise that we were going to have that big of a success that we just kept going and every time we did we learned something like Oh we didn't do. The packaging wasn't right or you know. Maybe we rent to too early into that trend, or maybe we didn't research it enough or maybe we learned something every time but I mean we've had. We've had product failures. We've had really difficult times in the economy I've been around here through September eleventh through the two thousand eight crash where the business was doing great, and then all of a sudden we've had were having to like have layoffs and figure out how to make the hard decisions. To keep your business healthy and around and surviving, and that's really hard. I mean that's something that right now we're going through. You know we have. Luckily we've got a great basin. We've had a very successful business, but this is a gut punch, and for a healthy business like ours. This has been really difficult and I can only imagine if you're struggling before this, but you just have to figure out you. It's almost like a business as almost like being a parent. You've got to make those tough decisions. Decisions you know that not everyone's going to understand. That's going to be hard. It's going to keep you up at night. and those those you don't see those on social media. No one's sharing like we had to really hard today and or have been meetings all day, and if they are, they're showing you the picture of themselves looking really cute, and you know here I am with my thing and it's. It's just not always like that victims hardly ever like that, so I think it's sometimes i. I've shared lots more real version especially on my own personal social media on instagram. Especially because I, think we do a disservice to. Everybody but to women's in general specifically where it's like if you're trying to be an inspiration and trying to share with other women, this is what if I can, we can all be here for each other. You, know in business, and this is how we can succeed. We are doing a disservice if we are just showing what our lives really never looked like And how how then do those? How'd you push through? How do you push through at the worst times for people that are listening that are entrepreneurs have launched their business or not seeing success right away. Like what have you learned to cut has kept you going. I think i. mean this sounds like something that my husband would go. No, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it because he's. My husband was our CFO CEO and. But for me, I, it's so much into an instinct. And then pushed through because I believe in my instinct very strongly. There's a thing like I feel like you know for us. We were very fortunate that the business that we started stayed healthy, and was viable forever, however I. Kind of look at our product launches in our product releases and different product types almost like many businesses, because there comes a time when you know this isn't working, you know there comes a time when you're like. We just need to let this keep going. We need to work at market. We need and you just you kind of. If you're really being honest with yourself, you know when it's like am I pushing too hard for something. That's not really making. Any headway or do I just need to keep working harder and I feel like You know if we ask ourselves how we done everything. HAVE WE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION? That's what I think. We need to kind of listeners, though because I just feel like if you are sitting here like. With a struggling business, let's say whether it's from the economy or just like I'm just not going anywhere It's hard because some people will say just keep going. Just keep going all the time. I don't think you should do that all the time. Sometimes you want maybe need to move onto. Something different doesn't mean you're not going to be. In business or start your own company, or but maybe this, isn't it? Maybe it is? Maybe you're just sitting there going. You know what this is going to be tough times, but I believe in this business i. know we have and we're going to keep going, so you kind of have to listen to that. You know you're got to say. Where are you? Are you? You know? Do I need to keep pushing through this, or is there something else that I need to be? Doing are exploring. It's such a weird time to because with everything going on I. Mean People are obviously doing less news less really to plan but I think there's still an opportunity and it's great that the product isn't just a manner planning out your daily activities that can also be used for intentional set goal setting in just writing down thoughts that you have journaling so I love that it's it's I town that regard Have you guys thought of ways to during this tough time? Kind of still sell your product in different ways or maybe thinking about different product lunches. Were you know what kind of has been brewing in the last few weeks, so it's like a perfect example of. Of evolving and pivoting right so like. Yes, when you're when we're looking at people that are planning your days just filled. My days were just like I couldn't even have the whole damn thinking. How tiny can I right because there's so much going on, but you know one of the other things we have in our product, minus positively journaling and guided journals, and then when you you know for us, it would be so tone deaf to be talking. Talking about we know you're busy. Let's just talk about busy busy busy schedule Hustle. Let's go because this is not the time for that, so we had to look at. What do we have in? You know in our offering. And what do we have What do we think is important or is there something else we can offer so for us? you know slowing down journaling 'cause for me. It's all about putting the pen to paper. I Love I love my. Technology and I. On my computer as well, but there's something to me about writing stuff down whether it's my schedule and prioritizing key efficient or whether it's like you know just journaling what I'm grateful for writing that down I did a whole like wellness like year in two thousand eighteen, where every single day for the entire year I journal. Like what am I feeling I thought it was going to be like more. Of a fitness thinks I like. My cholesterol is high, and I needed to lose weight, and I was going to do all these things I'm going to travel the stuff and what it became was. Oh my gosh, I'm realizing that I'm tagging my emotions now like when I would write things down the journaling became the biggest part for me is what I was feeling like I was really I felt very marginalized that meeting today, and I came home, and I think like I was going into hibernation. You know and I was angry and I was, but I was identifying my feelings. Why was I instead of just going like writing down my food log? You know it's like it wasn't helpful for me. I. Know How to eat healthy. But to realize that when I feel angry, I don't know what to do with those feelings and to eat them you know, or and I'm like an eye stuff them and I. Try and do anything in Canton. and that was like a realization for me, so we're kind of leaning into that and saying hey, right now when you're stressed or you're afraid or whatever it is that you're going through. What can you lean into? And how can you get in touch with your feelings whether it's do journaling or if you really do maybe you're a mom who is trying to work fulltime at home and also. Also home school your kids to the distance learning the. Maybe you need to be really efficient, so you need to you know. What is it that you need and listening to that? Do you need to be productive? Do you need to be kind of moving a little more inward, and then just writing it down and really getting out of your head and onto paper, so you can help process it. Yeah I need to start journaling. That is something that. I know he's for the whole year. Did you notice that it had a huge impact on? It changed the way I thought it totally and I'm the same way because I'm like I'm so famous for starting a journal. And then it's really good for like a couple weeks, and then it's empty, and I keep it and all these like you know journals that have a little bit done in the beginning, and then like I wish I could combine them all. And are they now? It's like so I just said I have never made like a year long commitment to myself I. Will I mean I will do anything for my kids. My husband, my family, my, you know the team of me me and my big ideas, but for me. It'd be like I'm always the first one to get shoved off the list and so I, said I need I was stressed because just like what you were saying. Our business was. Wildly successful that year, and the year before that but I was so stressed out. Because when you quadruple the size of your company, and you're trying to do the same things that you did before scaling it and learning how to do that so quickly is really stressful for a for a creative person who likes to do things like. As I'm inspired. And so. So dealing with that was huge, so all of these things that I saw which were gaining weight having high cholesterol, not sleeping at night, having hiring Zaidi I was thinking, it was because I'm out of shape or this and I didn't really realize accepted the journaling. which that's not what I started to do. That it was more than just that and so this journaling process just gave me. Such clarity and insight into my own feelings that I had no idea and I don't think if I if I just tried to do that at the very beginning for just a little bit I, don't think I would have. Gotten as deep because like doing it every single year someday the destroy today sucked. He knows the worst day ever and I didn't know how to see it through, but then as I got used to journaling just as an exercise every day. I learned to go. You know to just kind of. I guess like look a little deeper. Really. Shed light on stuff that I had no idea I was looking for. I feel like now. I'M GONNA. Go buy one of your journals because I'm so inspired by that by just what you said and I think that I'm someone that just keeps everything in my head and I talked to myself all day every day just. All the things that have to do all the things that should you know that are behind me? That I should have done yesterday it's that's great. I love that with you. You know you don't realize that when you're not like kind of emptying out. It's like for me I was not able to. I was not able to like think of I was kind of creatively blocked, and then I was like even motion. Lee blocked and they just didn't realize because I'm the same. I am an over thinker. I like I process everything and I just I kinda hold onto it and I get very wrapped up in my own head, and so it was just almost like an emptying of it and helps me sleep. Helped me do all that stuff, so my guys. I think you'll love it. Okay. I'm sold. journaling. Borsch, now let's talk a little bit about living intentionally, which is very much related to what we're talking about now, bite. What does it mean for you to live intentionally? And how can people cultivate a more meaningful life? Because obviously you found your passion, you work really hard at you. Know keeping your mind rate, and it seems like you're a very self, reflective person, but how how have you gotten there? I think. I've always been somebody who really likes. Growing looking inside I ask a Lotta questions of myself and. Other people like I. Try and tell my husband like I'm not really trying to psychoanalyze you. Even I would love to just get into everybody's head, but I think that there's so much we can learn. And one of the things that I have learned just by trying to grow as a person and being teachable. Has Been You. Know there's nobody in the world that is going to take charge of my life, my happiness, the things that I want that me. Matt what happens around me it doesn't you know we can all we can all be complaining about what's happening in the world with your job with your relationship, but when it really comes down to it, you're the one that's responsible for what it is. You want in your life and how happy you are. And so for me, it started with number one. I needed to. Learn how to love myself because I didn't love and accept yourself believe you're worthy of all those things, and then once you believe that those things started kind of coming into my life and a realize it's like you know. That was something that I had to really focus on. I had to work on with myself I am. We're a project, so if you go out there, and you really want a job, or you really want to start a business, or you want a relationship. You have to almost I think. Go for the life that you want with that same passion and I mean for me. It's just been about really starting to identify. What is it that you want? What is it that makes you happy? And how do you need to get that? I think that's why I'm a planner at heart, because living intentionally as really planning, you're trying to like you have to identify something first and then figure out how you're going to get it right, so it's like for me. Identifying. What makes me happy? What the name of our podcast plan? Happy Life at the Tagline for our company. Or for the for the happy planner, because really feel like you know if if for me, I need to identify what it is, that makes me happy right, and so I'm not somebody who is an Adrenalin Junkie I'm not someone who needs a lot of activity in my life, I need I need serenity a need. Calm I need a place to be creative I want to go travel I want to be with my family so when I. Start to really identify Granular Li, like what it is, that makes me happy and what I want I can easily say you know okay well. Then I am intentionally going to make the choices that get me closer to those things that I want and. It's really a responsibility. You know it's really taking responsibility for For the actions that we take and you know and I think it's empowering I actually feel like instead of going like Oh. My Gosh I'm responsible for all of these things in my life and no one's going to do about me that makes me. I think it just gives it gives me the power back to say you know. Stuff can happen all around me. Crap can just be going on like everywhere and internally I can live intentionally with what makes me happy, which what? And I can be. Responsible for especially this stuff that's going on in my head. You know so setting intentions of you know whether it's daily whether it's setting an intention for a year or whenever you're feeling like you need a little more clarity into. What am I working for I think it's a really powerful thing to do and I know sometimes when things get more popularity. They gained that whole like people in Oh. Yeah, okay. Setting intentions are doing all this, and it sounds a little Wu, and all that and I'm like it, but it really really makes a difference in how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make yeah, and it's all it all goes back to taking accountability, right and totally nine I. always talk about this on the podcast where a lot of people struggle with that I. Think they kind of have this. Poor me, mentality or you know I could never accomplish that I'm not ex- enough. I'm not educated. Enough I'm not. You know fast enough smart enough pretty enough whatever it is, and I just do I. Hope that if pe- when people listen to this episode, they really if they take anything from it. I really hope that they listen to what you just said. Because it's so powerful, that's such a like. I can't I've had a lot of things. People will ask me like well. Of course, it's easy for you to be happy because where you are today, you know and I said, but but here's what you don't understand is that? The reason I'm happy is not because I have all the things that I have the reason I have all the things that I have is because a happy positive person who believes that I have. that. What happens in my life is a result of you know of the way that I go about it and what I believe I deserve and how and then I can have those things I'm happy. And I'm positive period. Doesn't necessarily. Happy happy I just mean like I'm going to be content and positive and optimistic in my life. No matter what is going on and I have lived through a lot of things I've had like I said I shared with you. Guys had some traumatic things in my childhood that have happened I was had a child eighteen I had a lot of money issues. I'm growing up. I was in an abusive relationship with physically and mentally, and there's a have been drug abuse them I mean lots of things that I've had to deal with and. I could very easily any of those instances been. Why did this happen to me? I could never start a business because I don't have a college education and they don't have any money, and they don't have this and you know. What will people think of me and you know a? Growing and believing that you can do something, no matter what like having that resilience and having that. Like I'm just going to figure it out like I said I. It pretty much anything now I'm probably going to be more of a of a jack-of-all-trades master of none but that's okay. That's who I am, and that's really has gotten me where I'm at, but yeah. I just I think if anything I totally agree with you. If I share anything, it would be that no matter what your circumstances are in life. I think optimism and. And believing that no matter what happens to you, you will get through this, and you make something of yourself, and you can get the things that you want in life If you know if you're working, you work hard. You have to be willing to work hard. You have to be teachable if to learn to be confident, but all those things are things you can control. And it doesn't really matter what your circumstances are. So that would be something I mean. Yes. I love the product. Yes, I love our brand. Yes, I love all these other things, but that's just something that I think everyone can take with them throughout their lives. Such great life advice, and it's so true I feel like there's been looking back and reflecting on my own experiences to and the hardships that you know everyone has different forms of adversity, but how you respond and react to that is I think all the difference and I think it was a murray furlough that said everything is figure out. That just. When you said that because it's true like if you have that drive and that hustle enough to do what it is that you WanNa, do you can figure that all out and I think Alex also reiterated several times. There's this concept of just start now. Figure everything else out along the way as you go. Otherwise, you're never gonNA start. You're never going to achieve those goals but in terms of goal, setting and just organizational tips. I mean I feel like the ideal buyer of the happy planner is a very organized individual, or maybe they're aspiring to be more organized. So what are some good organizational tips just in general that people can start practicing and then apply to the happy planner. And I am not a naturally organized person. At like what you see back there on this video that we're recording over is not what it normally looks like I'm a creative person so I'm very like. Just kind of scattered and I will follow an idea like if I have an idea, I'm like I'm down that rabbit hole and. There's a chaos and mastic usually follows so being organized and using happy planner and using organizational tools is actually been essential for me to be like a productive society member of society or running a business, so one of my favorite tools and I think we kind of alluded to this a little earlier was getting things out of your head in getting him down I use a master What I call him Master Action Item List, so it doesn't matter if like you are thinking of I've gotTa. GotTa do cupcakes the Kids School I've got empty. The dishwasher I have a huge project that I'm working on. That's do every little thing. Take space up in your head and It doesn't really you know you're not really. They all have the same weight, so you're thinking constantly of the Dishwasher, the cupcakes and all of these things and you don't have the space to really think about Give yourself like. Hey, now. I'm really focusing on the project because there's so much stuff spinning in your head. And, so I think David Allen I think is his name he said you're. You're headed for having ideas, not storing them so like for me. It's like Oh, my gosh, that is so perfect so I take and had this one massive list actually I have to, but it's ones home in one's work, but usually for most people one will do and. If everything that comes out of my head is something that I have to do if it's an action item. I put it on my list and then I work from that list. Would plan my weeks when I plan my days, so I look at Monday and I think okay. I've got five meetings not lot. Stuff's going to be coming off that to do list, but on Tuesday I have one meeting in the morning and I had the whole day that I. have so I'll go off of my master list and then start working from there. I'M NOT GONNA forget my tasks that way. It's not going to be like oh shoot cupcake sting it. You have your your things that have due dates and everything so when I'm working from it I don't have fifteen sticky notes everywhere and a piece of paper that I wrote over there. That I got lost cause. I left it in my car and you're constantly then figuring out. How do I remember where it was that thing so keeping everything kind of in one place has been a big tip for me. the second organizational tip that I use I plan every Sunday I plan my week out every Sunday so or whatever the day before the start of week.' In for me. Mondays the start, so I sit down I. Take a look at what are all of the to the must do's appointments. The the deadlines that have to happen that week and get all those things in there and I. I plan everything out from date night with my husband every week. we're putting that in their first wins the time that I need one of my GonNa. Go exercise. When am I going to those put in appointments, and then I start to fill in again with things from that master to do. If I don't do that, then you know, there's things that come up and they're just time. Thief's and they come in to take in all of a sudden. You look and you've spent. Monday and you're thinking I've done nothing you know. It could be a week and you're going like shoot. There's nothing off my list. conversely you can take a look at that, and if you've been really productive, there've been times. I had no idea I could get that much done. So those are two tips for me to stay on and just to contend me. Being organized means being productive, because if I'm not productive, my stuff's all over the place. I get very easily overwhelmed, and that is not a good place for me to be. I was GONNA ask as well with with your master. Master list you add everything from like emptying the dishwasher doing laundry like every task so usually I have like if those are ongoing I will have just started doing this, which helped a lot, but all I kind of assign like if something that occurs every week for me I have a list. That's basically recurring tasks, so if you're if it's a cleaning thing, it's like an you know you've got changes sheets. You know the bathrooms or whatever I've got empty Roomba. because. Just, all those little things that are like take the trash out. Those are of things that I put off to the side which are more recurring tasks. And then when I sit down. Unday, I think you know empty room by the today's the in the evenings and do my meal planning here and those things happen all the time. The the Master List for me is you know the things that are their projects or their like like for me for my work one. It's like every time like I need to talk to him about this Call up this person and make sure I return this thing and check out on. All of the let's marketing meetings scheduled out. Make sure to reach out and so then I can cross them off. On Cross them off. And then when they're done, they're done, and of course you know once it gets to about halfway marked off at create a new list because it's prettier. And I like doing that, but yeah, the reoccurred things I keep separately. Of It, so we're GONNA. Get this all in. Your home about really what you're saying is it comes down to time management skills right, and yes, you know like you said there are some days ago by and I'm like. How did I just spent two hours scrolling through instagram? Checking emails bearing bearing myself in emails that really don't I don't need to get back to these people right away and you self reflect and go like that I see I'm busy, but to hours of that time was wasted. Time management is huge, and that was another thing that I uncovered in my memorabilia box that said think I was in like fourth grade and the teacher says like Stephanie needs to learn time management. Because it is true, because I do the same thing and I feel like there's so many times when people say I just don't have enough time and I'm thinking i. just spent four hours binge-watching. Whatever I. We. Do have the time and that's okay. If you're going, you know what I'm going to. It's going to be a binge party like I am going to be watching and It's fine but I think we need to be aware like you don't WanNa miss out on the things that you either want to be doing our need to be doing because you're not managing your time well and like I said it's a constant struggle. This is going to be something that I'm GonNa be. Be doing for my whole life. Because you know because I'm just not naturally inclined to be that way even, but it's a habit you know, and it's easier for me now, but managing your time well and scheduling it out is is a habit that we form you know, and it's just like it just becomes easier and then yeah, you find him. There's nothing to me like when I look at a list I'm like. Oh, my gosh look! How productive I was this week! That is such a good feeling when you even when you finish the day, and you're like man I was on point today like I knocked this off the list and I. Did this and you just feel good? There's just this feeling it brings. There's something about they say like an actual like I don't know what gets release, dopamine, or whatever that when you cross things off your list. That, yes, go. It is what? What are some other resources that you? You've enjoyed yourself or that? You would recommend to listeners in terms of time, management or building, good habits, organizational tools and practices. I think that like to meet. Okay decluttering. Making sure that you like you don't have because again. The more clutter at the worst and I know they say you know a messy desk or whatever they say, but the MESSI dozen. Beans or whatever and it is, but it's probably one who's just driving themselves crazy 'cause they can't find anything so developing somewhat of. Of A protocol for how you're GONNA. Plan your weeks and then also. One of the things I don't know if it's not really a resource, but it's something that I learned that. I kind of tend to first thing in the morning. I want to like answer all like you're saying I. Want to answer all my emails, and then of course I go down. Somebody's asking you know unsubscribe to all these things now and then I started subscribing, and then I go down, and so somebody told me to block off your days and at the beginning. Do the most important thing for you that you need to. To get done in the morning or whenever it is that you work I work best in the morning and freshest van, and then about three o'clock, I'm looking for anything else. I'm looking for something to snack on or any distraction and it, but some people are not also if you're like going, this is when I do my best work. Then make sure you can identify those times because you're gonNA. Find that you have. You're going to get more done. You'RE GONNA feel more efficient more. More productive and I think that's going to help I. Definitely, figure think that if you can figure out how technology and productivity work for you. I am kind of a hybrid between outlook and all of the technology that we can't. We have that really does keep us I've got when I have meetings. All my stuff is stored. I, don't WanNa. Right down the zoom. Call Identification Number and the password, and all these things you know, that's all stored in my outlook and I have a really good relationship between paper planning and my tech, you know. And then but I have a process every time I have like a nice system. I think I think that works I've been I've used a lot of productivity tools into honest with you. Nothing's really kept me more productive than just keeping it simple and planning things out and getting stuff done I mean it. It starts off great, but then it's just something else for me to. Keep track of so having something just right in my face whether it's my outlook, calendar or or my paper planner I just like I, said I've tried I've tried them all I've tried. And I know they were really well for some people, but for me it's just all about keeping it really simple and just getting stuff done. Yeah, and you know what I love the realness because we get questions, sometimes of like. How do you have a business and you work fulltime in your mind like? How do you do all the things? And I always kind of self reflect in its and I always think you know. You make time for what's important to you. That's the bottom line. We all have twenty four hours a day. I think that that hustle mentality isn't always helpful and isn't always positive, but at the same time if you have something that you want to accomplish. You just have to do it. You have to figure it out and do it. That's the bottom line. So Yeah? I love what you said on that. You know what I'd like to ask you Stephanie. If there's some sort of book or podcast or resource that you'd recommend for our followers, I don't know if you have any in mind that something that is is really impacted you in some way. Yes, so two different two different things so a book that basically just changed my life completely were was the gifts of imperfection by Bernard Brown. And it was one of those things where I just realized I don't have to be perfect I'm worthy of just the way I am, and that just really kind of just her whole. I love her so much that book. When I started to believe those things about myself, things change. They think changed in my life. They changed in my business That's why I think that no matter what you're looking at doing that. Inner work is I. Don't don't try and like. Get the promotion or getting the relationship, because you think that's GonNa make you more successful or happier, or whatever, because if you're not okay with that first step I it's all going to be empty. You know you're going to get the promotion, but it's not gonNA. Feel as great as you thought it was. Because you're. There's there's that whole in there that you're trying to fill so. That personally was amazing for me and then I love how I built this by Cairo's and. The podcast and for business. That's something that I listened to and I just. If, you're ever wanting to start a business and you think well I don't fit the typical either entrepreneur or business owner, or whatever I don't fit that mold listen to those stories there from every walk of life and every kind of story. It's so empowering to listen to them, but it's also really interesting to see how some of those people dealt with you know the setbacks, and how they how they innovated, and how they funded their businesses, and it's really interesting, and so, and they've covered just about like every aspect of business so I love those, too. Such third-rate episode actually heard how I built. This I've never listened to it, but I've heard it is great good, so that'll be one that'll that'll be added to my podcast list. podcasts our life right now in quarantine.

Interview With Stephanie Flemming
"Okay, we'll Stephanie. We are so excited to have you on the here for her podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. And we are so curious about everything that you've created and your and so I think. Our audience is going to be very very interested in the business aspect of. Everything that we're about to talk about some super excited cool. I'm so excited to be talking to you. Guys for those who don't know. Tell us a little bit about your health. I'm Stephanie. Fleming and I'm a creative entrepreneur. I actually call myself like an accidental entrepreneur. I started my business me and my big ideas with my mom twenty actually over twenty years ago started in my garage with an idea of just one idea for making stickers for the scrapbooking industry at that time and. And really just kind of wanted to do it too. I needed a creative outlet. Yes, but I needed to pay the bills like I. was you know a young mom and struggling to make ends meet, and just really wanting to like. Go out there and I would do anything because I you know I wanted a better life for myself, and for my kids and and so I was definitely you're. You're? The definition of a hustler like I was like I have no money, but I will put in the sweat equity so. We been hustling with me and my big ideas for. Over twenty years now, and we've created everything from paper stickers and now planner, so planners is our latest the happy planners, our latest product line and It's just been such a a wonderful thing for us to get into because we get to share a love for creativity for positively, and that's been kind of where I have fallen in the last probably five or six years which. Not only being an entrepreneur in a business person, but also being able to be the spokesperson for our product and our brand, and that's something that I've been totally passionate about. It's amazing. I'm curious. So, what did you do before you started your business? Were you a stay at home? Mom? Did you have have a job, so I was? I was pregnant when I was eighteen. Not Married had had a baby, and when immediately from high school to I need to find some way to take care of my son and I did in home daycare for eight years, and was daycare provider for six kids usually at one time and it was you know it's honest work? It's hard work. It's eleven hour days for you know for eight years and you know all I to do is be a good mom, and and so I didn't have a college education. I grew up in the craft industry though my. My parents had a manufacturing and distributing business so I grew up from picking orders in the warehouse. To you know watching my parents who are entrepreneurs basically navigate the craft industry and come along with them to trade shows and things like that so I always had that creative bug, and and even as an entrepreneur as a kid I was making little catalog, so you can buy these cards here, my designs and so, but then life hits, and then you have to go out, and you know and do the best you can and and so at the time. In one, thousand, nine, hundred eight. My mom and my mom had sold that business, she and my stepdad divorced and they sold their business, and so she was kind of at this place in her life where she was like okay. I'm ready to start over, I need. She was probably my age now, and it was like thinking I need to start over and figure out what life looks like for me. Now and I was saying I just I want to start something something I want to do anything and so my mom had some seed money and. Like I said I would do. You know so. I stayed up all night trying to find just hustling to find hair. Competitors are advertising in this trade magazine. So that's a potential a mailing list for so anything possible. I was willing to do so. Yeah so it was not like I had this pedigree of an MBA, and I'm going. Go start a business, and that's why I say I'm definitely. An accidental entrepreneur, but I've I've loved it. We'll story. It is very very cool. It seems like you had it in your blood like raped in the beginning. Though like it was something that you're meant to do. I, think so. I think without knowing that that's what it was like. I was just cleaning out. One of the things we've done in quarantine is cleaning out our garage and so all my memorabilia. That's where I found my card. Catalogue of here are the things you combine I'm like I always was.

"Right but so. Most you know Rachel Pearson spoke at the last two hacking lives and she's made. She's also the Queen of Tiktok, and my daughter is her biggest fan, and anyway she's actually going to boise and my daughter so excited to talk with her, which is going to be so fun anyway, she. She, she walks me over a really cool question about you know taking things once airtime, and how you create your vision, and how you bypass things in all kind of stuff so I'm GonNa play her her part of Oxford right here, senior the question and then I'm GonNa. Come back, answer if someone called me out today, and and they were very spot on. They said I feel like you are taking the stairs. One step at a time when you are destined for greatness, so my question to you is. How did you create a vision? Did it fall into your lap? Did you read a book how you create a vision for your life in Your Business that? Keeps everything going. You know like the infinite game from Simon Sinek. Thank you so so so much. Okay, so I think it's a really good question, and it's interesting because. I think a lot of us. We get into this game and we don't really know what's possible where we're going or any of those things you know like. I didn't I didn't know what was happening. Today was possible by any stretch of the machinations. So I think sometimes you bypass your vision. In fact, it was kind of a really cool. What a really cool experience I was Remember we did. The final startup story was with mixer at this. In Utah called the drive, our comedy club and had JP sears. Come into roast me for an hour before we. We did the interview and it was so funny, but anyway at dinner I asked JP makes what's next few. What's what's the next plan? And he has smiled at me. He looks so content something that I've never been my wife and he was like It's like you know what he's like so far. Everything that's happened me surpassed wherever possible select some China just enjoy, and just like enjoy things as they. They. Come and be grateful for them. And I was like Oh my gosh. That is amazing like I need to learn that, so there's that piece of it right and he gets entrepreneur struggle with us, because because We're always looking, you know come back to my my last podcast, so talking about We're so tied into achievement achievement. She moved. Forget about the fulfillment side, so there's an apartment, the other side which I understand Moore's this goal of achieving and trying to take over the world and stuff like that and You Know I. Remember A- At the very I live in ever went to I remember I one thousand dollars to go to which is like the first step for me, my call so much money like stressed out and the speakers talking up people selling different things and and I remember. I can never Ford this thing for two grander, five, ten, grand, or all these different things kind of being like bummed out about it right and I. Remember Admits Kid and the kid was. Maybe a year, older Mir, maybe same age. I was like I was twenty two at the time he been twenty three or something but we are about the same age and and I saw the the presenters Solas Mash grouping route three signed up for it and I was like how did you? How are you for that like I can I can figure it out for that and he's like. Oh, he's like well. There's two ways to get. Get the top you can work your way, and you can buy your insights by my way I'm like well for sounds like this leap in thought I'd never have crossed my mind before my okay, it's pretty cool and then then it's more questions like well. How'd you four for this and he's like I'm actually in twelve masterminds. This time I was like what how did you do that? And he came back and said well what I did is that. What and He's like I. wanted to go these things, but I couldn't afford us as they found. People who kind of trained toss of to so I wanna go is mastermind. Groups obviously can be expensive for everyone to pay. For you for you know if you guys want to go, all this is going to be really expensive so if you're interested. I think if you pay me ten grand and I get. I don't know twenty people. Two hundred thousand dollars Algo. Join all of them and I'll come back until you cool stuff I learned and he got all these people are paying twenty grand. And he took the money, or whatever it was I don't know. And he joined all these mastermind groups, and he bought his way in, and he got up, and he built his company very very very very quickly and I thought that was just a strategic thing. You know I remember celebrity apprentice. Few Watch delivery apprentice in the past I three or four episodes, people do things that was like fundraisers. It was like Corey's money sleep while on the street and they're try. Lemonade always seems raise. Money wasn't tough. I don't know two or three seasons in when the dude from kiss. that. Yeah. Kiss Gene Simmons. GM's was on it and They do fundraising things out there trying to raise money that hustling and he just sat, there picked up his phone made a phone call and got a check from his buddies for half million dollars, and you destroyed everybody else out of the Moore. Looking at thinking, he's thinking in a different level and everybody else says the thought difference, right? Everyone's like like here's the task must do the thing. And they jumped up him. Trump except step-by-step. Whereas Gene Simmons came back and said Look I can do that or I. Can just do this and we'll jump you know a thousand steps past everyone else. And I think I remember watching have now and just like okay. I got started thinking more strategically. US think tactically which tactics are so important is how we get the thing done, but it takes stopping stepping back and looking at things more strategically of okay. Here's next step next up. You want to jump five or ten or twenty tears is not going to happen by you. Doing the next step is to stepping back and saying what's the next thing like what's the? What's the big the big domino? The next I don't know there's ways to phrase. It I'm not sure the best way but conceptually it's it stopping the tactics instead back strategically and thinking different right. Click funnels I'd so many amazing strategic conversations with friends and people The worldwide software company right, if you, if you at the expert, secrets book like we talked about movement and finding a future base 'cause and like all these things that weren't. They weren't tactically like. Here's the next step it. It's like how do we? How do we? We've these things into our culture right? How do we? H-. How do you do these things? They caused these incremental big shifts as opposed to just increasing your your your ads by ten, or you're just created another friend and offer it's like. Have you create things that have mass shifts? Mass changes things like that. I think it really comes back stepping back away from the tactical, which means getting out of the day today, which means taking a vacation, which is hard for us right or or doing strategy your team, and just they look for three days, and we're GONNA work. We're talking about like what's possible. It's a future. Where could we go you know not not with Nextstep, but like if what if we just destroyed these steps and had a whole new thing like what would that look like? And how do we get there and you pull it? Poor Gene Simmons instead of fundraising. You just pull out A. Just, you know, put your phone and call buddy in and get five hundred thousand dollars in five seconds. That's that's the power of it so I. Hope it helps the no, it's not a full answer. Hopefully gets the Wilson head-spinning. Everyone else's listening help that helps as well

"Hi there. This is Angela from Toronto. I've been listening to the show. Sincere to and have been listening to the episodes. I originally missed. I was inspired by Erin from episode. Nine Oh six and have started working on publishing public domain titles as evokes my question for this hassle is how to determine how to best use my time. I'm a full time school. Principal and already have an income generating side hassle restoring and refinishing furniture. If I spend time on the books I'm not able to spend time on my other side hustle. How do people handle multiple side-hustle projects? Thanks Chris I'm looking to hearing from you. Thank you so much Angela. So glad you're out there and I for one and impressed with your ability to do all these things especially being a full-time school principal. So this is one of those topics in which there is no single. Answer for everyone so. I'll give you three approaches and for both Angela and our listeners. Maybe just kind of listen to these sit with them and see okay which one is best for me or perhaps is best for me now because it might change over time okay so approach number one is start with many narrow to one so you're new to this world you're experimenting. You've got several different ideas. You try different things all totally normal and over time. What you're probably going to see is that you're better at some than others. You're getting a better response from some of them that others what you learn along the way. We'll informed decisions and make you think. Oh I actually. I don't want to do that right now. Or this other thing is really cool. It's GonNa take off or I'm really just enjoying putting the time in on it so you start with many and then over time you're like okay. I'M GONNA go all in with this and when I say all and I don't mean you're risking your life savings and years of your life. I just mean like okay for the next month or two for the foreseeable future. You're going to make that your focus approach number two is kind of the opposite. Start with one and then add as you go if you can so in this case you work on one project for a while and then you see just like what. Angela doing here. What your capacity is for more. You may learn that it's totally manageable to to two or more psychics or you may discover that it's not good for personally. It's just kind of burning you out taking all of your time and energy or one project ends up suffering at the expense of the other so in that case you probably do have to make some choices because life is all about choices were always choosing one way or another but the only way you acquire that information is by trying to add something and then seeing what happens. Lastly approach number three It's just kind of recognizing that to everything. There is a season you might have multiple projects going on. But you're not necessarily trying to split the time fifty fifty in fact you're gonNA get specific about scheduling time. You spend on each project and recognize that it probably won't be that even balance. There's a time and a place to really sprint on a project and say okay. I'm going to spend all my limited free time. Are All my side hustle time at least this month on this furniture restoring business or on listing the public domain e books or whatever else it is and then. I'll probably go back to the other thing and I'll continue to monitor what happens with the first one and then we'll evaluate from there. I was thinking about this myself from my own process. Recently I started working on another course for linked in John. Three courses with them so far and we've got a couple more coming out and when they approached me to do this new one I was like wow. I don't know if this is the greatest season in the world for me to work on it because I'm quite busy with other stuff but I find the process of working on these things enjoyable so in this case I was able to spend a few hours outlining not totally diving into the whole thing but just kind of outlining and was still able to finish the other work I had him. I played that week so I think of it as kind of a seasonal thing for myself later I'll be able to dive in and actually the material for the course but for now I can of just tell the water so to speak all right Angela. Thank you again so much for listening. I'll be cheering you on whatever happens listeners. If you've got a question come to us all school dot com slash questions.

Gil Emilio in today's episode. This question comes up a lot. Should I start hustle with my best friend? It's like we get along great. We go into business together as I said. It's a common question listeners. But there is a clear way to answer it the answer is not always yes or no. I would say it's more often no than yes but there is a two part test you can take to know whether partnership or going solo is your best option when I say test. It's actually a very simple test. It's just something you can ask yourself in potential your best friend or somebody else. Who's interested in having a partnership then you'll be able to see what's best for you.

I've been listening since the beginning things for all the inspiration and puns. Here's my question for you. Should I start a hustle with my best friend? I've heard some of the stories. You've shared where people end. Having been falling outs with their business partners. I don't think that would happen to us. But other specific ways that we can help to prevent that keep up the great work and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this. Thank you so much tracy so great to know. You're out there from the beginning. I always respect listeners who've been along for twelve hundred episodes in counting but of course if you have just recently discovered the podcast that is cool too. It's a community. We've got people all over the world interested in creating extra income building something for their future pursuing a creative project all kinds of good reasons. So let's talk about this question. Should I start a hustle with my best friend or should tracy? So here's the thing when she says. I don't think anything bad will happen and I don't think we'll have a falling out etc. Let's assume that's true in her case but more generally speaking. It's like no one thinks it will happen to them. It's like divorce or any break-up or anything goes really wrong. If you expect it then maybe you could prevent it often. These are unexpected. Things happen and what does tend to occur. Is that over time? Like here's the negative and I'll talk about the positive as well but the negative is that often. The partners in a partnership end up with different levels of motivation and interest or different levels of commitment so one person ends up kind of carrying the flag which of course can then lead to resentments or at least misalignment and it can become a strain on a relationship so my first question is always like. Why are you doing this if the point is to do something fun with your friend maybe do something else right? It's not like that person is disconnected from the rest of your life like you can always ask your friend for help and advice just like you would help them. I just doesn't mean you need to necessarily run a business together now the time to join forces because let's talk about that to the time to join forces is when your vision is truly aligned like you and your friend really want the same thing you are equally as committed you both share the same vision and are willing to put in you know the same amount of work released a comparable amount of work if you can answer yes to that question and you. Each have unique drinks complement each other. That's when you might want to proceed okay like if you're really good at something that your friend isn't and then vice versa. The net can be an ideal partnership. And even then I think Tracy asked about you. Know what are some ways I can prevent mishap even then take the time to address up front? Who's going to do what. How many responsibilities will be divided? If the partnership isn't fifty fifty in terms of both Prophet and investment you know. What will it be like if it's something else? Let's just decide this now so that we're not talking about it. Further down the road then last not least. This is always a boring recommendation. But it's important to get it in writing and this is not because you don't trust each other it's because you do and you want to maintain a good relationship. You want to do everything you can to protect that relationship as you begin a project on which may end up being amazing mutually satisfying etc. But of course he wants to protect yourself and you want to protect that relationship too. So that's why I think you know all things being equal. Your default option should be to do it on your own and you only look at the partnership when these characteristics are met in terms of same or similar level of interest and investment and then also perhaps that ability to complement one another or compensate for each other's weaknesses so that the partnership truly is more than just one plus one or three people or whatever it turns out to be. The point. Is that that combination. That partnership is more powerful than just the individual efforts combined. So that's what I think about that again. Thank you Tracy and listeners. If you've got a question of your own it's been so fun to feature these. We've got a lot more coming up. But I want to invite you as well come to side-hustle school dot com slash questions when a feature them throughout the year here.

I believe that everybody story matters and that the definition success is not the same for everyone so your journeys to success and my journey to success will look very different and very much influenced by how we define success for ourselves and it started to frustrate me that as a society tend to popularize certain definitions of success. In the every day everyone hops on the bandwagon looking to emulate the success of the so-called influences the living this proverbial GM ONE. Such example is entrepreneurship. Now don't get me wrong. I am an avid advocate for entrepreneurship always have been always will be. I believe it plays a vital role in modern economic times and is a source of passion purpose in saints.

We all could benefit from regardless of with the Weird Entrepreneur. Not but what frustrates? Me Is that as a society. We have started to Romanticize the struggle of entrepreneurship often at the expense of the nine to five. They are influences day. Almost fully five the ninety five and we cannot be entrepreneurs in fact. We shouldn't ob entrepreneurs we need people who are willing to do the ninety five.

"I'm really excited about this. Too and to celebrate your hustle and all the other radio topiary shows are producing episodes on a trucking related theme. The long haul and this is ours. You know what night over the road kind of reminds me of us. Everyone knew about prison but they didn't know what life was really like. Oh that's true. And we all see those trucks on the highway. But God knows what daily life entails. Wait a minute get it. I'm sorry but it's a Little Cup your coochie and then it has a little spout in the up through it but if you really bad the pressure would just go all over the place. And so I actually don't even use it. It's for when you have a really low stream you WanNa just take your time is slowly but can you. Can you use it while you're driving or you have to pull over? You'd have to pull over. Yeah there there you just get. Pow's yeah but no. I I never have a problem all right enough of that. Eric told us she's been driving for about three years and she drives. What's called a day cab? So there's no sleeping compartment and she doesn't do long hauls like Paul and that's not because she's on parole in can't cross state lines no. She's not on parole at all. The reason she doesn't do long-haul is because she has cats and bring a lot a lot of it as she doesn't want to leave him alone for too long right. Erika Toda set aside from the fact that it takes her away from her cats. She loves almost everything else about the job. There's the freedom. The fact that driving a truck takes all of her energy and focus. She likes it. There's a Lotta multitasking. Although sometimes she says she sees people doing a questionable types of multi tasking. I saw one guy looking through the pages of a Playboy magazine. Once that was weird I was going to take a picture and when he saw that I was looking at him. I had to pretend like I was like while he was driving. His Dome Light was on and he was traveling right next to me and he was just flipping through pictures of naked girls. And I'm like wow. There is one thing she really does not like about. The job is not the job exactly is some of the other truckers male truckers would. I don't like this very insulting is when other truck drivers. See me coming out of the cab and they asked me. If I'm driving an automatic. Why would it be automatic? Why do you think I can't shift think I I can't float my gears? That's weird and you might have guessed. Eric doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver. Look like I realized. I'm becky myself into a corner and you know what I am. Definitely someone who needs to listen to over the road because is actually going to inform me moonwalking. So what I'm going to say is that to my present mind. She doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver she superfit. She's pretty and she pays a lot of attention to look Erica. She's a bee's she's not to be fucked with me. Spent twenty years in the Peon and actually back before she got in trouble with the law. She wanted to beat a law. That's right she wanted to be a cop a constable on patrol now while she's out driving it's like she's part of the highway patrol. I'm on the phone to the cops all the time. I see crazy shit. What do you mean? You're the cops all the time? There's crazy stuff going on the freeway all the time like Ali driving and then there's a ladder I call the cops on like I am number two lane Northbound eight eighty. There is a ladder and and I don't know who dropped it and then a few minutes later I'll call back like didn't you just call me. I said Yeah. But there's a mattress on the freeway. Now I didn't know that people called that's that's all day long. What number do you cautious when one or the regular CHP number CHP is the acronym for California Highway Patrol? I didn't know that's how they got if I call nine one one and and it doesn't connect me to see hp than the the operator disconnects me see HP. I've only stopped one time. But that's because there was somebody in the in the fast lane trying to make people stop and they were waving their arms and they were standing in the Fast Lane. They got into an accident in their car was up against the side Wall Medium. Call Nine one one and I rolled the window down and I started screaming at the person. Getting your car getting your car. Now get off the freeway and then the person who is waving heard it was my voice and she was a teenager and she had been drinking and her face was split open and she was trying to get people on the freeway to stop in the Fast Lane. And so I'm looking at this girl bitch. You're about to die. She didn't die because Erica. Was there on the phone with the. Chp Erica told. She sees a lot of scary shit out there while she's driving around and she also had a few close calls borough one day. She was getting off the freeway and her brakes failed. I felt like I just had to do what the hell do. Keep from killing anybody. I was Coming Downhill on Airport Boulevard in Stockton and I lost my breaks all the way to the floor. It was just absolutely nothing. I couldn't change gears because my RPM's for just so high. I my my gear. Shift was locked in. I was just driving right into the intersection and my light turned red and their light turned green and nobody could see that. I was having a problem and the cars started going in the car right in front of me. It was just enough to where I made a left in a whipped around him may like a C- like ch and then and then I jack knifed to stop and I destroyed a trailer because I was carrying doubles and there were tomatoes and and I completely demolished the light signal box. But I couldn't stop. That was Erica. Solano talking to US last season and as I mentioned earlier this preseason episode is part of a radio TOPI white.

'cause they don't have strong bladders and they just pee wherever they wanna be but for women There's there's contraptions to use. That's always wondering what are they. Have you ever seen them? No Russia okay but I was at a anyhow. We got to talking to Erica about trucking and it turns out that it's not uncommon for incarcerated people men and women to get into trucking when they get out new guys inside who spent a lot of time reading books trucking. They were getting ready for those tests when he got out. And since I've gotten out I've met a couple of truckers on parole. I mean after being contained in that one little itty bitty area for year.

"Ooh Or learn how to yourself which we know. A lot of people are not going to put the time in but that AD agency whatever that fears the five hundred thousand whatever it is a month that fee is not just not just because they feel like you know charging something. There's an expertise in a high level of execution. That comes along with it. That makes it worth it. It's almost sometimes not worth doing it unless you're going to do it that that way right. Yeah definitely so when you're when you're putting together like a package for a customer. Is it really the biggest hockey point. How much what does it cost me or is it more? What can I see in terms of revenue? That how much does it cost is the biggest and then second would be. How much can I make exact? Okay literally literally is the only thing that they care. We have this thing now. I do a lot more over the phone sales now and Because we do the whole. US actually the whole world so any business owner across your service remotely anywhere skype conversation to figure out a little bit about their business get access to their facebook profile and running through it. It's their their cards are attached to. I don't need to join anything with that. Sure so over the phone even in person. It's different over the phone. We have a qualification process where we ask them certain things do. They already have a marketing budget. If it's yes. And they say they spend five thousand dollars a month and then the next question in. Is you run facebook ads and they say no. It's the easiest sell right because cut the newspaper. Yeah exactly so what are you spending your. What your ad your monthly budget on? How much is generally? I don't know how many likes on facebook. We have like five people like they don't know this information but they spend the money. It's the old school business mentality where they just should by billboard for thousand dollars a month and they don't know who saw the billboard into them if you put it into them if you long as you put it in the right place you'll get results moving on now it's the opposite now. It's now it's like you have to monitor. What kind of feedback? You're getting live right so we explained to them that and then again. It's more on not insulting but I almost ask them the questions that makes them realize subconsciously that they have no idea what they're doing right and I don't make them feel bad for but explain to them that because you couldn't you just it's fax axeman because you couldn't answer. The question is the perfect sign that you need somebody earlier going to be out of business in five years. It's a fact it's a fact I mean there are some old time mm-hmm businesses that have no mortgage pay no rent. They can sell for sure. But that's going to happen about those people. You Never GonNa Penetrate but this is the guy who just opened the place on on you know the new Jim. Yeah exactly which is hot. Gyms are hot right now. I think the business that could benefit the most is fast food. I'm shocked sometimes that I don't see any ads. The fast food places locally like in there I mean fast in local ones that that local that small of an audience. You're only marketing. Take people two miles away free Danvers. You're not going to try to attract someone from Beverly Nelson. Yeah it's got to be so cheap if I'm if I own I I mean I I literally drive by some of these places and I'm like Shipman the damage I could do with a small sub shop and a massive social media campaign campaign executing on the food. You know you can find a lot of people who can make good sandwich. All good executing on the social side is the new up and coming. The thing is that we need you to come in and do it to rely on someone you know a lot more established to even get into that realm is. It's it's it's a crazy expectation right like most of these people have been doing what they've been doing for forty years and they just think times are changing like that's their excuse. Times are changing you know. I never advertise my whole life life. We'll guess what now you have to. You have to think call social media. That's that's what. Got Me into the space. The analytic let excited just going over the the massive massive size of these platforms. Blew my mind so much that it it almost completely moved off. They didn't because I'm still day trading. Remove me from that side of the analytics. I mean you to now being the second biggest platform warm. Instagram is now owned by facebook. They have billions of monthly active users. It's you're not even running ads. You're paying for attention right. That's I I like it and you guys have any like really good success stories already or has that not really yes. We've this year since it hasn't even hit the your market. And like I said we started from ECOMMERCE WE'VE We've done over two million dollars in e commerce sales office cre- generated twenty one thousand six hundred leads. Wow that's amazing. Yeah a lot of leads. Yeah that's an that's for your businesses for all of our clients. Not Of course you. Do you feel like you guys have like a really really good long-term plan or are you guys sort of rolling with the Times because it can be a little tough to develop a long term plan in your space because you just don't know where the market's going to go it was I was at first. I started off as Jack of all trades. We'll take on any client so I was doing every ECOMMERCE store in you. Know drop shipping people who are selling on Amazon and all this Oetzi and things like that and then gyms and business ran businesses yoga studio anything. And we'll still do that. I have now people who do the random thing that I've taught them how to run ads. But we we've niche down into gyms real estate the agents and more like yoga studios because that's just seemed like it worked the best so mainly we have a lot of gyms right now. So that's a cool thing to get into you when it comes to Jim because gyms will always have that need. It's always an uphill battle of gyms food for example. You know people have to eat. They're going to to make that decision with Jim's it's like we have to sell you have to you have to create a desire to go to the gym one and then you have to create a gym that People WanNa go to so it's like well that's a whole different story but yes gyms are even more difficult so customer. Acquisition for them is critical is critical especially considering that they can get monthly subscription clients which helps offset the cost of acquisition. Because it is probably a little more expensive for Jim for the cost of acquisition for gyms must be higher but in in terms of where you see the company long term is defined road. Are you going to stay in customer acquisition space. Or do you see yourself branching out. I think we're going to stay. have it hasn't necessarily gotten down to the pinpoint of the direction we're going to go. But we're right there so I don't get a lot of speed bumps obviously obviously deciding on what we wanted to do. I mean it's kind of the grind. I'll say I love your. I'm honestly extremely shocked at your positive energy right now because by like why month. Twelve of being self employed myself. I was like now exhausted and it didn't end for like ten years after but you seem to have a big pep in your step clearly. You're super excited. You're almost still in the butterfly stage. Is that what they call it. The Butterfly Stadium. Like when you first meet a girl yeah yeah exactly and then six months later. You're like man just kidding but see you seem real giddy and excited about it. I love to see that because that that right there. That energy is what's GonNa fuel cause hardship is gonNA come right normal for every business knows income it should still put a fire under your ass but it's normal and I think to see someone have that kind of energy early on strong and it's still going one year and that's really a good sign of a passionate person behind you know there's there's an pure passion behind it. It's coming from your gut. It's not it's not like oh I want to get rich right. It's not a get rich quick scheme. Seems like it's something you're bashing enjoy what we do. Yeah Yeah exactly so. Tell me. Give me some advice. If I'm twenty five twenty six which could be. But I'm not if I'm twenty five and and I'm out there and I'm looking for like I think most kids your age right now are struggling to find their place in the world like create value within themselves. Salves What could you? What piece of advice would you give them in terms of like action? Because I'm a big action guy a hate this hate talking about Sha. Ah I to me. It's like Oh my God all these young kids on social media putting up these pictures like I'm doing this and I'm doing here. Yeah New Year new me. I'm like buddy you haven't right like you. You haven't even gone punched. Once we've had a flourishing economy now for a decade like Shit's GonNa hit the fan. What do you think you could could tell someone? At your age group that is failing to act and is just kinda stuck in that Rut so I heard this video when I was on Youtube in university binge and it was will Smith and it stuck with me like crazy and then I was at the motivation video. It was the most one of his big like video where he's talking about laying brick In just lay the bricks as per my dad used to take on the summertime and then eventually if you lay brick perfectly everyday you'll have all right and then I read. This book look called the slight edge. Where the daily little disciplines compounded over time will eventually be something massive? Yeah a lot of people well my age look at the end result. I well this is the go ahead. Finish at the age of looking at this is like this is discussed. This is out of control like like this is bad. And that's the most detrimental thing that you can do and I did and it's affecting generation X.. Greatly so talk to me. What do you mean you did it you you did so you lived in that world? I live in that that worldwide. We started in ecommerce because the numbers were crazy. You could have. You could turn in a teeth. Whitening brand store and ship. Millions of.

That's why i love that is twelve weeks and then you end up accomplishing more than twelve weeks than you used accomplish in a year ear because you really buckle down. Put your head down and focus and you would be amazed what setting aside one to two hours a day can do because these are seven to fourteen dedicated hours a week. You're not like goofing off anymore. You not just like saying <music>. I'm gonna do things and not really scheduling it now. These are focused work hours so you'd be amazed and you will be amazed. When you see what you can accomplish just to remind you guys again so throughout my time as a side hustle right. I have tested out. Many different schedules attested out working on it. After work i tested out my lunch break attested out the morning and and things do shift things shift. There are times their windows where what used to work. No longer works for example. I used to do the mornings and there was a period at work where we were working on a big project and we used to have eight a._m. Meetings and obviously it was just i'm an early riser so being able to wake up and do work plus get to work which was a forty minute commute for me by eight a._m. Was a lot so then i had to shift so be flexible and know that hugh might have to shift your side how hours at time but you still gotta get the side hustle hours and that's why you need to spread it out and just commit two one hour a day because that is achievable. No matter what kind of job you work until you guys can give me one hour a day or give yourself. It's not about me. This is for you. Give yourself one hour a day the thing about being aside i'll start. Is you have to work around your work schedule. There's no way around it. If you have have crazy hours guess what that means you also have to get creative with your side-hustle hours so episode ten guests. Yes all the way back to episodes head head courtney sanders. She talked about getting up as early as four a m to get everything she needed to get done for her business and for her work into her day the entrepreneur in residence lisa peg room she lives in l._a. She gave up driving to work. She started taking a bus so she could do work on her side hustle in that one hour commute because she obviously couldn't work in drive at the same time right so these are some creative ways to work your side-hustle into your a day. It's always going to involve sacrifice but it is going to be worth. It and i'm also a big fan of after work hustle myself summer when when you have the longer daylight hours i used to love that because that might mean you can do a little work and still enjoy time with your friends or still enjoy time to indulge in ashore too but definitely take advantage of the time of day that works for you. I will say and i told this story before but i remember one time. I was having drinks after work and as much as i enjoyed the company i couldn't help but calculate all the side hustle also work. I could've been doing and also wondering like don't you guys have something to work on like we are really just sitting around drinking and talking and don't get me wrong long that debrief and decompressing time with your coworkers is important but but but you don't need to do that every week or multiple times a week take some of that
