EP088: One Day Will Never, Ever Come
5 days ago
Vicky and Joe sit down with their cold beer and talk about work-life balance. Long gone are the days where Vicky is stressed and overworked, right? Well, not quite. Vicky admits on the podcast that it’s difficult for her to take a step back and try and not do ‘all the things’. Her Monday to-do lists are often a mile long and there’s only so much one can do in a day. So, how does she get work done vs. live the life that she wants? Find out on this week’s episode. Key Takeaways: [1:45] There is no such thing as ‘one day’ – the only day that exists is today. [4:00] How does Vicky manage to do so much work? Answer: No sleep, cocaine, and sugar. [5:35] This podcast episode has been inspired by a podcast episode Vicky heard on The Copywriter Club podcast. [6:45] Vicky has so many things to do, and sometimes, it stresses her out. [9:00] Vicky is doing a bit of a workload restructuring right now so she doesn’t feel overwhelmed. [11:00] With all that being said, we so often hear people having that ‘hustle’ and being on ‘Team No Sleep’, but this mentality is toxic, and frankly, not healthy. [13:30] We spend 18 years of our lives, sometimes more, being trained on how to be an employee. [16:40] ‘Being an entrepreneur’ was never an option for Vicky when she was growing up, and she’s seeing the same thing happen with today’s youth. [20:35] When things don’t go well, we end up working harder. Sometimes, we need to take a step back and not work harder, but work on the things that will give us results. [24:30] So, take a step back and think about the bigger picture. What do you want your life to look like? [29:40] Don’t build the business first, and then build your life. Build your life first, have the life you want first! Mentioned in This Episode: Businessforsuperheroes.com Businessforsuperheroes.com/inner-circle Busin

Made me laugh out loud
I love listening to Vicky and Joe. I've not listened to a podcast before that teaches really useful information but also makes me laugh out loud. My husband (not a business owner - yet!) now tunes in too and is catching up on the back episode on his way home from work.

I love listening to Vicky and Joe (and the cats and now the chickens) as they talk all things business and life. If you're a teetotaller you might not appreciate the gin and the wine, but if instead you're after great useful bits of business advice (including what NOT to do) then you're in the right place. Vicky will have you laughing along with her, and do take the time to listen to every episode from No 1 to the current one, otherwise you'll miss the fun of The Dingle saga, Rayburn Bob, the chainsaw and the sit on grass mower. What I love most is the banter between Vicky and Joe (they really should have a TV show), especially if Vicky should happen to wander off topic... Oh and do listen out for mentions of the circus... and running... and bling...and climbing. I'm sure if you don't learn something from Vicky, that she'll offer you a refund on your podcast fees ;)

One of the best small business podcasts out there!
I have been receiving Vicky's emails for about 18 months and listening to the podcast since it started. The podcast offers excellent advice to anyone looking to grow their business. I feel as though I have saved myself a lot of time as the info in the podcast gets straight to the point and deals with core issues relevant to any business. Highly recommend!

Vicky and her hubby Joe are just over the top. Best part, is Vicky knows what the heck she is talking about, when it comes to business marketing. In between the chuckles (and sips of gin) you will learn some very valuable business marketing lessons, and you cannot help but drink to that
