This week on the Instant Impact Podcast, Elyse is talking with Elizabeth Hartke, Business Scaling Strategist that mentors impact-driven entrepreneurs in scaling their influence, income, and time freedom without having to trade time for money or their values for their vision. After building two 7-figure businesses and having the privilege of working with hundreds and hundreds of entrepreneurs, she now runs her businesses and hosts her podcast, Scaling Up, from the rolling hills of her hobby farm with her three little kids and husband as she practices what she preaches - working hard to have the freedom to truly live!
Elizabeth and Elyse talk about the gap between where people want to be and where they are now. There is a distance between being that person you envision and who you are today. Often times, Elizabeth shares, people assume that Time + Hardwork = Freedom. This just isn’t the case. We need to be much more intentional. Making sure that the vision is solid is important, but being sure that you’re building and generating a business model that supports that vision. If you want to be in a place where you can create a passive income, you need to build a system that allows for that. If we drown in the day-to-day, though, it can burn us out. Keep your eyes up just enough to keep that goal in sight.
Elizabeth discusses outsourcing and scaling your team. In general, it’s important to remember that you should never stretch yourself to the point where you are putting your business at risk. She recommends taking a look at what takes up the most space in your head. Even if a task theoretically can take only a few moments, it can eat up your attention. At some point, you need to spend money to make money, and that means investing in a team to support you. Additionally, investing in things that will move the needle in your business. What are the things that are going to drive profit?
Finally, Elyse and Elizabeth touch on gift-giving and the impact it has on the longterm. Then, Elizabeth shares her tips on content creation and how intentional we have to be to get genuine engagement. Tune in to find out more!
