Driscoll you don't want to the biggest challenges especially with the great race Nation with business owners accident entrepreneur you know what but they have it but they really talk about it it's what it's called it's called holding on to that mindset rather than moving into a c o Mine step of their finances you know if you're a business owner accidents pretty or you're going to love this first of all I'd like to introduce twins are so you can see she's a beautiful lady on the screen you know what what are the biggest things that people don't know about when is it he's a CPA a business coach a money Mentor she's the founder that her company called a value gal she brings Wall Street knowledge to main Tree Business<br>do Nursery coaching programs that teach Financial skills and strategies now here's the cool thing prior to Value go Quinn spent more than a decade as a financial expert witness who works in the high-stakes world of Litigation Consulting you guys don't know how intense that is I have a few friends and stuff like that and they're like okay I'm done but to really make it work and be a valuable witness at the big she's a frequent speaker guess Factory on financial topics including building a valuable business money mines have goal setting for business owners and more so when that was a whole mouthful welcome to the show are so happy to be here I just like to start talking about the great resignation the statistics that go along with that and how long can your employees are increasingly quitting their job<br>and we have a lot of people that are that accidental entrepreneur now definitely so I have seen you know some different statistics but a lot suggesting that recently the race of the older longer tenure workers leaving the workforce are getting higher and higher and surpassing the younger generation so there's a just a lot of indicators that people are getting ready for their second act and they are ready to move on from maybe corporate life and do something different when we first started with covid number of companies go through this okay I need to purchase some salaries so they started going after those people in their mid-50s<br>and I actually have a few clients in the financial planning business we're all of a sudden this level management just got cut out but you know it's a multi hundred-thousand-dollar salary salary and when you start cutting out two or three hundred like that you're getting a lot of money savings there and it was really interesting is a lot of them got asked to be hired back and say two-thirds of what they're getting paid before and somewhere to go hey I'm going to be here for a couple years I'll do that but other said no see you bye I'm going to go do this on my own so we see that now with inflation and with all the changes in the market were seeing some companies either hiring in summer sing hey you know what it's time to return to a little bit so people could be pushed out into that accident a lot to face it so what is some of the lessons that entrepreneurs can take from the corporate world to build a successful business<br>large corporation works and why they need to be successful those are at the same principles that apply to a small business just on a much smaller scale so one thing that you want to think about is you know the CEO of a large company has a board of directors and there's a board of directors for a reason it's because you need input from people with different skill sets and different expertise and experience has to help you with what you don't know so the beautiful thing about being your own boss and expertise or add in a small business is it that you get to choose who you surround yourself with so what you you know it's really important to think from the beginning of your business bad what there is a circle or a mastermind group or a coach with a different you know skill said that you just don't have from your corporate background<br>I really think about the things that make like major corporations successful and bring those things into your business on a smaller scale so definitely don't try to do everything by yourself remember that you probably had a team and the CEO of a large company has so many advisers and people working with them so don't wait on kind of bringing in the people who have been there to help you on the second so you were successful in at your corporate job for a reason so you know even if you are someone who was pushed out unexpectedly or wasn't I wasn't quite ready to be an entrepreneur start start talking to people about what you know and really documenting what were<br>winds in your corporate job you can pull out your old performance reviews and you know look at the things that people said that you were good at and just remind yourself that I mean this is a crazy crazy time where you can have a business that is anything honestly so you have so many skills if your long tenured employee has so much experience to draw on and so it's really helpful just to start jotting those things down and those will really help kind of spark the ideas of what you should be focusing on in your business Whataburger questions for viewers like to send the first person to this answer the question you talked about building a board Amy from San Jose said what about having my friends on this board<br>well then I would say it first think about the roles in the objectives that you want to spell and then think about the people who would be good at that so instead of starting with the people start with the rolls are start with a skill so if you're thinking like for myself I am you know I'm a CPA I have a financial background I never had to sell anything in my life before I started my business that is one thing was like I need somebody who is going to help me figure out sales and marketing that's number one priority so whatever you know whatever those things are if it is financial if it is you know you know you're going to need other people to work with you building a team or just other entrepreneurs who have similar space<br>you like to just benefit from their experience I would say to start with the you know the rules that you want to fill and then think about the people to fill those roles if you have great friends who have all of the skills you need that right but yeah just to kind of think about it in that in that border the other part I just want to add my own to sense cuz I've lived through this before is it is that you want to have a friend that's going to tell you the unvarnished truth and what I mean by that is you know what if you're not being a a good person or acting out of data line they don't have a problem telling you that you're that a hole so they hit they can see if it doesn't say this is the way you lie and say you don't have to worry about somebody saying yes<br>yes I agree you want to have somebody Whose advice you trust and who is going to give it to you straight in your own business you really don't have time to sugar coat to many things otherwise it just doesn't work so there's a lot of people in their mid-50s like forties or early 60s what are some of the common misconceptions about starting a business as a second act is believing that you can't do it because you're too something so if it's the second act it's too old too shy to specialize in your field that there's just is an opportunity my personal experience and belief is that if you have that mindset that you can learn new things you're not to anything I mean it's really going in with the expectation that the first several times of anything is practice and that you're going to get<br>better as you go so you know what to feel like when you are a long tenure to employee who has been great at your job you know what you're doing you feel like you need to get everything perfect the first time and it's really hard really hard shift to realize that when you're starting something totally new is it's just not going to be perfect the first time and that's that's part of the best part of the journey it just is part of how it goes if you have to practice and you have to just jump in and do new things and realize that it does get easier you just going to get back to being in basketball in third grade for you didn't know how to dribble the ball bounced off your shoes in about 3 months to get to the point he doesn't have anymore this is great I realize so much with my kids I have two young kids and then I'll be like you know like I my shoes is so hard and it's like we just got to practice but you forget it<br>you do as an adult it's like you forget that you don't know how to do anything the first time and it really is just practice we're going

the things I wanted to ask I look at this to go you know what am I doing<br> as a person that runs my own businesses are multiple businesses what are the three ways that an employee mindset blocks business growth I mean by employee mindset so when you are in corporate you do you look around and you see what other people are doing and you listen to what people are telling you about how you're doing and that's how you judge if you're doing a good job and so when you when you get into your own business and you are still in that employee mindsets you it's really easy to get stuck because you might be holding on to you now you're feeling guilty that you're not working normal hours right now you're so ingrained should 925 you know you open up the computer from 8 to 10 every night and that is what the that's what you do when you're working hard and another one who would be a<br> finding unnecessary busy work to fill those hours because you're not you know if you're not doing anything you're not being productive you're not doing what you're supposed to be doing you know another thing is thinking about just thinking about your ability to make money as an entrepreneur in the same way of when you're an employee may be salary or hourly employee that you need to work more hours in order to make more money so if you are stuck in these types of genotypes of thought pattern you're really hindering your gross because maybe what really Sparks your idea of how to get through a problem is stopping and going for a walk in the middle of the afternoon and or maybe it's you know not doing the things that you're comfortable doing like for me I build you know I build hourly financial consulting work for soul<br> that it's like if I'm not in a spreadsheet doing something that I can see at the end of the day for a long time it felt like I'm not working I'm not doing what I need to do even if it's really that meeting with people and talking to business owners and talking about money and their business is really what's driving my business forward so it's you know kind of reshaping the way that you think about being productive the way that you think about the hours that you need to work and the way that you think about what it takes to actually make money that can hinder your business bro I just thinking of going okay I did that one but I think we all do that though cuz I think my problem is I think things should be moving faster than they are and it just drives me nuts even though I work at multiple things I think you know what I've got some dead time what should I be doing here I get that I totally get that how can you move out of that employee mindset into a CEO mindset<br> big things that is really hard about going from an employee to entrepreneur is that you don't have those indicators of when you're doing a good job so you have to build in time for yourself to reflect on the winds so you don't you don't you start thinking like well am I shouting into the universe like I hear this all the time from husband where is who are in the early stages like is anybody listening to me is anybody hearing what I'm saying doesn't do I make any sense I'm so it's stopping to think about those you know the small wins about you know today I went to a networking event and when I was talking about my business people were really interested in asking me questions like that is a win that I know I'm on the right track that you know things like that where you're really stopping to think about those win<br> that are kind of intangible that are going to keep you going and another thing would be I think just trying to really step into maybe step back and forth between a door and a Visionary so you kind of need to you need to have both where you can stop and be the Visionary CEO that's thinking about where am I going with my business like what do I really want to achieve with my business and then switching back into the door of okay let's work backwards what are the tasks that I need to do to get there or what are the people who are the people that I need to bring in to do those different things so it's you know it's just a multi-faceted type of mindset where you need to be able to kind of I like to say zoom in and zoom out where you're looking at the big picture and then you're looking at the day-to-day and finding<br> that balance that works for you your business a little bit your money mindset guide and I just liked it and just didn't tell everybody what is all about where to make sure everybody can get it they can go to the shaving with
