How to Get the Most Out of Contractor Relationships

Stepping into Predictable Success with Les McKeown

The stages of business every entrepreneur works through, what they look and feel like and how to work through them. The final stage of business, predictable success, you can expect to reach if you make the conscious decision to work through the other stages and what you need to commit to in order to reach this level. The crucially important thing that will happen when you hit the "whitewater" stage and why it will require immediate decisions and action. Different parts of your business can be in different stages of the life cycle. He explains the importance of the results of the quiz we use to determine if someone is going to be the best fit for a position we're trying to fill and whether or not those categories are deal breakers when it comes to someone being in the right role.

How a Rebrand Positively Affects Your Business

We are about to change things up here at Foot Traffic, and I already know the kinds of reactions we are going to get. I’ve been in business for 20 years this month and over the years I have rebranded or up leveled my business many times. When I do, it definitely draws attention from current customers, past clients, and even potential clients that were once sitting quietly. People start saying things like, "wow, you guys are really killing it," or "things look like they are going really well". There is a perception that comes with a fresh look. You now how you feel when you go get a hair cut or fresh color, you get the new iPhone, a new car... you just feel better. This is what it feels like to your customers when you update an old website, enhance your videos on social, or gain clarity on your ideal client. Ways to Refresh Your Brand __ __ People crave fresh, new, and trendy. How can you freshen up what you currently have going on?

Reactivating Past Clients for Easy Cash

How much money are you leaving on the table not following up with your best clients that are no longer with you? We recently got a new RV a year ago and we had slim pickings on getting a spot for Memorial Day weekend but thankfully found something. It was our first experience and we had nothing to compare it to so our overall impression was it was “nice”. We said things like, it was good and we had fun, but there was no over the top reaction. Then we went to a few more that summer and fall and all we kept comparing the new campgrounds to was the first one. We had no idea how spacious the lots were, how safe it was for our kids to be wondering on their own, that dog parks are not standard, or that hiking trails are a huge perk. We didn’t realize how good we had it until we tried other places. Do you know how many times that happens with our clients? They leave thinking let’s try something new and sometimes they realize I should have stayed. How can we remind them? This is where a reactivation strategy comes into play. This is one of the concepts that we teach inside of our program, Well-oiled Operations. How to Create a Reactivation Strategy __ __ We call this strategy WOO & WOW.

Turning Your Goals into Tasks

When you begin to delegate more tasks and responsibilities to your team you can easily become stumped as to what to give them to do. Today we’re talking about gaining clarity on your vision in a way that allows you to reverse engineer your long-term goals and break them down into smaller tasks. To grab the PDF download of an example of what this has looked like inside Foot Traffic, dm me on Instagram ‘CLARITY’ and we’ll send it to you. You can find me @stacytuschl You’re getting caught up in the day-to-day maintaining your status quo but that isn’t getting you any closer to your goals of increasing your revenue. Things are feeling mundane and monotonous and your team members aren’t especially fired up about their daily tasks. We’ve got to get crystal clear on the movement and impact of each activity. 5 Steps to Turning Your Goals into Tasks 1. Reassess for the biggest impact look at data to tell you or start tracking 2. Identify activities not producing results (either pause or stop) 3. Calendar those activities with consistency 4. Overestimate timeline in your favor 5. Hold yourself and others accountable Number 5 is probably the hardest and most important one. How often are you keeping your commitments to yourself? Be aware of that. It's a big deal, even if no one knows but you. The better you get at this the more progress you will see. When my alarm went off today at 4:50am, do you think I was excited to get out of bed? No, but I made a commitment to get up and start my day, so I did. It's much easier to keep others accountable. You’re paying for results, so as long as you track what are they working on this week and today, you’ll move closer every day.

Simple Ways to Reward and Wow Clients and Team Members

According to a Gallup poll, the cost of replacing an individual employee can range from ONE-HALF TO TWO TIMES THE EMPLOYEE'S ANNUAL SALARY. Today we’re talking about why it’s important to prioritize rewarding your employees and there’s a PDF download, dm me on Instagram @stacytuschl ‘REWARD’ to get the list of 20 Ways to Reward Your Employees I bet right now you have someone on your team who is either considering leaving or you’re thinking of replacing them. How can you make retention a priority item on your ever-growing to-do list? It’s actually because your to-do list is so long that you need to prioritize keeping your employees and motivating them to perform at their best. 3 Ways to Reward Employees and Improve Retention Frequent, meaningful conversations with employees. Gallup research also reveals that over half of employees (51%) who leave voluntarily say that in the three months before they left, neither their manager nor any other leader spoke with them about their job satisfaction or future with the organization. 1. Acknowledgment and recognition – Giving shoutouts at team meetings or leaving notes on a job well done goes a long way when it comes to team morale. 2. Opportunities for growth - You might also consider delegating more responsibility or leadership opportunities. 3. Professional development – Consider purchasing a course or educational resource to encourage your team members to continue learning and growing in their roles. When you make keeping your team members with you a priority, you also keep Problem-solvers, Leaders, Customer-service, Morale, and Productivity which means if you lose team members and these other essential aspects of your business, you risk adding more to your to-do list.

Improve Your Leadership Skills with Intentional Communication Guidelines

Avoiding conflict or difficult conversations with your team members isn’t going to magically make a situation better.  In fact, the longer you put it off, the worse it’s going to get. With intentional communication strategies, you can let your team members know what needs to change in a caring and respectful way. Things aren’t always done in alignment with your business best practices or company values. This could be because team members don’t fully believe that the system in place is essential or it could be because the system wasn’t clearly communicated. In any case, the needs of the business need to be intentionally communicated and you can’t let that team member continue to not meet your expectations. When you practice intentional communication guidelines, difficult conversations become easier and situations improve for everyone. 3 communication guidelines in this episode: __ __ Taking the lead on improving communication will have a ripple effect on your team and clients. Comment ‘COMMUNICATION’ on this Facebook Post in our Facebook group to receive the PDF with these 3 tips I discussed here and other helpful suggestions to keep in mind.

Measuring and Managing as a Roadmap for Success

You probably have certain consistent responsibilities for your team members. But when you think about those requirements are the tasks that they’re assigned sales-focused and clearly defined toward a specific goal? My guess is probably not. You and your leaders need to be setting goals by looking at your data. In today's episode, taken from our weekly live free training inside the Scale Your Small Business Facebook group, we’re talking about how to create KPIs. Your team probably has tasks like posting on social media a certain number of times per week, sending emails to current customers, and assessing your most reliable source of lead generation. But if their tasks aren’t goal oriented and sales-focused, they likely don’t feel very fired up about what they’re doing and can’t appreciate how the work they do contributes to the bigger picture of the success of your business. From your perspective, it’s easy to feel frustrated outsourcing tasks to team members without being able to identify the return on that investment. When you set up KPIs that are clearly defined and sales-focused, everyone knows exactly what they are working towards and  Here are three key takeaways you can expect from this training: 1. How many KPI's should be assigned to each team member and how to decide where they need to focus. 2. Possible reasons KPI's don't get met and what to do if (when) that happens. 3. How to incorporate the KPI's for each team member into their performance reviews. A small team that focuses intentionally on a few KPIs for each member will see quicker and more measurable results than a team of 20 who isn’t tracking KPIs. To get started creating them for your business, head over to this Facebook post and comment METRICS to get a list of 75 ideas. Did you love today’s episode? 1.

Turn Mistakes into Lifelong Customers

Especially as you are transferring responsibility to team members they won’t always do everything perfectly. Rather than doubting your decisions to delegate, you can see mistakes as a learning experience for everyone and a chance to increase your customer retention. We’ve all had the experience of being so frustrated by a business’s mistake that we decide never to spend our time or money there again. But when you think back to those times, consider if it was truly that they made a mistake that was so off putting or if it was the way they handled it. I bet that when a business that has delivered excellent services or products in the past takes ownership of their mistakes and offers a chance at reconciliation you would take it rather than searching for another provider of that offer. In today's episode, taken from the weekly training inside the Scale Your Small Business Facebook group, I'm sharing three steps to turning mistakes into lifelong customers. 1. I'm revealing tips for how to actually plan for mistakes to happen and why it's so important that you do. 2. When a mistake does occur, you can take ownership in a professional way and I'll share what that has looked like in my businesses. 3. I'm sharing my thoughts on how to consider the needs and wants of your customer and offer a small opportunity to make an apology and show your appreciation for their continued business. To get a copy of the "oops card" we use at my dance studio when a mistake happens (and it does) head on over and comment 'oops' on this post in the Facebook group and we'll send it to you!

How to Test New Marketing Strategies Without Tanking Your Results

Today we're talking all about how to test new marketing strategies (without tanking your results). There are three main reasons to be cautious about jumping on every new marketing strategy you hear. In today's episode, I'll tell you how I keep myself from getting tripped up with new strategies because of the three things I know about other entrepreneurs who share "what's working" for them. Three key takeaways from this episode: 1. The advice I'm sharing here doesn't exclusively apply to marketing. You can use it to test and strategize with hiring, time management, etc. 2. When you need to try out a strategy and most importantly when you really don't. 3. If you decide to test something new, how to do so in a way that will be easy to track and eliminate confusion. It's really easy to fall into thinking that every new strategy you hear is going to be "the thing" that blows your results out of the water. I hope you come away from this episode knowing exactly how to see new ideas as a theory and how to test them without wiping out the success you're already experiencing.

Letting Go of Hustle with Jenna Kutcher

This episode with (fellow Midwest) entrepreneur extraordinaire, Jenna Kutcher has been a long time in the making. Getting on her calendar is challenging because she's pretty well-known for her discretion in how she uses her time and energy, which is exactly why I needed to pick her brain.  With her new book, How Are You Really?, coming out in the next few days, I'm so glad she and I were finally able to connect as friends and entrepreneurs for this special conversation. Three noteworthy gems you can expect to take away from this episode: 1. The trick your brain is playing on you when you witness the success of others and how to know what is actually meant for you. 2. Her tip for that drinking out of a firehouse feeling when you go to a mastermind type event and want to implement all of the ideas you hear. 3. The mindset shift to get us through the polarizing experience we face as female entrepreneurs and how to move forward with clarity. And because she's the queen of reserving her calendar for what's most important, you can also expect to learn the mind-blowing way she suggests graciously declining when you need to say no to something out of alignment with your values. This conversation is so meaningful and special and whether you're a brick and mortar business owner, digital, or a combination of both, you'll gain some powerful insight here.

Overcoming Indecision

I hear all the time “my team can’t make decisions without me.” I always challenge the CEO to identify if that’s the real issue. Oftentimes it’s that they’re not ready to let go of control and are becoming the bottleneck for the team’s autonomy. It becomes so much easier to let go of control when you’ve gone through a specific decision-making process and are able to teach your team to do the same and set them up for success. So today we’re talking about How to Overcome Indecision and Empower Your Team. You  your team isn’t capable of making decisions. Or when they do, you question it and wonder why they did what they did. Especially when you are considering bringing a team member into a leadership role and you’re both unsure they can make decisions according to your standards and expectations, the prompts I’m suggesting here are helpful in reflecting on what stepping into that role would mean and will empower you both to make decisions confidently. 3 key takeaways you can expect from this training: __ __ The biggest thing I want you to realize is that indecision is costing you business growth.

Stop Working as Your Own Assistant

Without an executive assistant on your team, you are leaving money on the table by doing all the things instead of  the right things. You thought you’d be further along in your business – more sales, more referrals, it seems like things should start to feel easier by now. But your brain never shuts off, you’re convinced you’re always forgetting something, constantly checking your calendar, and getting interrupted by notifications.

In today's episode, I'm outlining the exact system you need that will walk you through the whole process step-by-step. 3 key points about hiring an executive assistant: 1. At a very basic level, to prepare for hiring your EA you need to start with a job description. You can begin by doing a brain dump of all the things you need and want to get off your plate. Maybe it’s not a strength, takes you too much time, isn’t getting done consistently when it should be… get 30 minutes on your calendar to think through all the potential tasks an EA could do for you. Now I want to tell you about this brand new system we’ve created for you that will take you from posting your job description to sending your star EA their offer letter. From  that attracts the right people to , all the way through to that sets you and your star EA up for success, you’ll be telling all of your entrepreneurial friends about this system!

How to Create an Org Chart Even if You're Still Hiring

You need to have an organization chart for your small business (even if you're still hiring).  When everyone reports to you there is no way to keep the expectations and communication clear.  You end up micromanaging and somehow it still seems like things aren’t getting done to your standards or your team is confused. Imagine having a maximum of two people reporting back to you with a summary of the status of different projects. You still know about any challenges and the things are getting done. It just doesn’t come from 6 different people. 3 key insights in this episode: 1. You can have one person wearing multiple hats but you do not want multiple people sharing a position as a leader. 2. Having an effective org chart is a system including 4 phases that allow you to evaluate the right people in the right spots and plan your next steps. We'll dive into how to get started. 3. Once you have your first or revised version of your org chart, you need everyone on the same page. We'll talk in this episode about the final steps of the org chart creation system. A strategically planned organization chart changes the whole business game when it comes to leveling up in accountability and efficiency.

Welcome back to the Foot Traffic podcast! Today we're talking all about entrepreneur burnout. First let me say, I've been a business owner for nearly 20 years.

Entrepreneur burnout is so much more than feeling tired. If this episode hits home for you, I encourage you to evaluate your situation and get help immediately.

Was Tony Robbin's Business Mastery Worth the Hype

This episode is my honest review of Tony Robbins' business mastery. It's been on my bucket list for a long time but I wasn't previously able to justify attending because it meant taking seven days away from my family. So when I had the chance to attend virtually, I jumped at it. In this episode, I'm giving my candid feedback about whether or not this event was worth the investment by laying out all the pros and cons of the experience.   3 key takeaways to listen for in this episode: 1. Was it worth it? I'm sharing the action steps I always take when I attend an event like business mastery to make sure I maintain momentum and make back my investment. 2. The good, the bad, the ugly. There were some speakers that were really valuable, some repetition of basic things I needed reminders of, and one thing in particular that I really didn't like. 3. The major benefit of events versus free resources. I'm a huge fan of events versus podcasts and books for the exact reasons I'm sharing here.   If you have the chance to attend Business Mastery, of course, you'll have to decide for yourself if it will be worth it for you. Hopefully the pros and cons listed here will help you make an informed choice. Did you love today’s episode? 1. Take a screenshot and share it to your IG stories. Tag me @stacytuschl! 2.
