Podcast Episode 004: Crash and Learn with Lise Kuecker

I just think I need to explain to you what these episodes are all about.  Every Crash & Learn episode, I’m going to interview an entrepreneur about a time that they probably don’t want to talk about – a total business failure.

But we aren’t going to stay there. We’re going to dissect and discuss what they learned and how they overcame that failure.

Because it’s not just about failing. It’s about learning from the experience to hopefully never have it happen again.

So in this episode, I walk you back 9 years to a time that was just plain crazy. I was 6 months into starting my brick and mortar business and had 2 babies to care for.

I get into what my personal life looked like and trust me guys – it was messy.

If you feel like you’re starting a business when your personal life isn’t where you want it to be, this episode is for you. I’ve been there.

So take a listen to Episode 004 and learn how to overcome what personal hurdles you may be experiencing right now.

Podcast Episode 003: Why You Should Never Start with a Business Plan

 

When I started my businesses I had a clear vision:

I wanted to build several companies, while not having to live accessible to them. These companies would ultimately have several tiers of management so that I would focus on new development and big picture growth.

{but here’s the kicker}

I wanted a typical week to include no more than fifteen hours work. Oh, and I wanted to bring in millions of dollars in revenue. Yes, I just put 15 hours a week work and 7 figures in the same sentence.

Raise your hand if you think what I just said is impossible, if not insane. Yup, I guessed that’s what most people work thinking.

Two years later, this is exactly what my company looked like.

Podcast Episode 002: True wealth has nothing to do with money

As a child, the 4th of July was such an amazing day for me. My parents, best friends, and family would come over and we would set off fireworks and swim! It was truly a magical time for me.

This year was different. I was just coming off of 4 weeks of crazy travel, I had the house to myself, and I was looking forward to some peace and quiet.

Then, my dad called me the day before the 4th of July to say that I needed to get straight to the airport so I could come celebrate the 4th with them.

I was very tempted by my couch….not going to lie!

All I could try to muster up was that I couldn’t pack in time to get to the airport. But it just struck me, what gift my dad was truly offering.

It wasn’t just the plane ticket. It was the fact that I had a chance to have total freedom in my business.

Jet out of town to celebrate a holiday I love with the family I love.

This was all because of the wealth my family had built.

He was less worried about the $1,000 plane ticket and more worried about me spending time with people I enjoy.

That’s true wealth.

If you want that type of wealth for your family, listen to my second episode talking all about the way to wealth!

Podcast Episode 001: The Who, What and Why Behind This Podcast

We always say we’re going to start something. We’re going to start some DIY projects around the house or we’re going to start a business idea.

But something ALWAYS gets in the way.

And the most common excuses are

“Well, it’s just not the right time.”

“Not right now.”

“I’ll get to it later.”

How many times have you said any of those things this week? This year? Heck, your entire life?

Those are just the surface level excuse.

And slowly our intentions become distant thoughts.
