Hustle & Flowchart: Mastering Business & Enjoying the Journey

The Hustle & Flowchart Podcast with Joe Fier is all about how to build a business so it gives you the freedom and fuel for your life. We discuss systems, mindset tweaks, reframes, and strategies for entrepreneurs (and really anyone) to enjoy the process of being in business and having fun. This isn't for the entrepreneur looking to build a billion dollar business, rather someone who is looking to build systems that work for you, so you can make more money than you need just by working part-time. I was a chronic hustle-mode kinda guy and I want to share my experiences and mentors I've met along the way to help you reframe things so you can be the most effective as an entrepreneur. Join in conversations with Joe Fier and various mentors sharing principles and strategies to put this into action for yourself. Please enjoy and share with your friends! Listen Notes

Dan is passionate about helping entrepreneurs end their suffering, and he shares his insights on how to do that through his book and this podcast episode. He talks about the challenge of constantly chasing more and how it can lead to taking ourselves out of the game.

We also discuss the importance of setting expectations based on average performance, rather than personal best in order to achieve financial success. Dan's fourth commandment is also explored, which is about not seeking the best of ourselves every single day, but pursuing a rolling average.

Finally, Dan shares how he had to unlearn much of what he had learned in business school in order to become an entrepreneur. He realized that he needed to optimize for the right things, not just more and more.

We're back with Part 2 of our "copreneur" series, featuring my lovely copreneur partner, Heather Fier.

We're continuing from our Part 1 epside where we chatted about the journey we've had as partners and tips you can swipe from our experience.

This time around, we're diving into the 6 ways you can approach business and life with your partner.

Copreneurs are when a partner work and manage the same company together...

But this is not the case for everyone... so we made these 6 steps to work even if your partner isn't involved in your business.

We have 13+ years of being copreneurs together and have learned a ton.

You'll learn these 6 steps plus a bunch more:

  • Prioritize communication: Set aside time to talk and plan regularly 
  • Clarify expectations and roles: Discuss who is responsible for what, and when 
  • Listen & be open-minded: Listen to each others ideas, and consider them objectively 
  • Share ideas openly & honestly: Be open to discussing any ideas, and dont be afraid to disagree 
  • Resolve conflicts quickly: Work together to come up with a solution that works for both of you 
  • Celebrate successes: Acknowledge each others accomplishments, and take time to enjoy the wins

Do you know another copreneur couple who would benefit from this two-parter series?

Please share it with them!

I'm bringing back my wife Heather Fier for another episode (more are coming, due to popular demand).

She's been my mentor in many ways, and today I hope one of her stories of success and pain help you on your journey.

Here's a bit of what you'll hear from our chat:

  • The raw, juicy, behind-the-scenes of a 16-year old copreneur couple
  • The difficulties of running a business and a relationship together, and the strategies we used to keep our sanity and remain happily married
  • Why Joe didn't sign Heather's yearbook in middle school
  • How Heather helped scale a business with her mom from local to nationwide while in her 20s
  • How Heather turned a wedding planning side hustle and led to writing her book
  • How Heather dealt with ending a 15 year old business with her mom while having our foster daughter reunify (lots of stress & emotions)
  • How Heather launched a new business, while pregnant, and grew an email list of 25,000 people
  • How this business helped her partner with the top wedding influencer
  • Heather's transformation from being a workaholic to being efficient and intentional with her work
  • How monthly recurring revenue changed our thinking
  • Lots of tiny, quirky details each of you will notice and land differently for you!
