As you know, the entrepreneur’s journey can feel lonesome and isolating. I’m on a mission to help entrepreneurs break through the isolation and achieve the success and fulfillment they’ve always dreamed of. I do this in two ways: both through my business and through this podcast. In my business, I have recently committed to dramatically narrowing my niche, which has been both scary as hell and extremely rewarding. It’s making my life and business easier, and has re-ignited my passion and excitement for doing what I do. Stay tuned for an upcoming solo episode where I’ll share this transition, the mindset I needed to embrace, and how I’ve worked through the fear so I too can achieve the success and fulfillment I crave. For those who may be impatient in finding out, I’ll share a sneak-peek and tell you that over the years, many physicians, practitioners and psychologists who own their practices have come to me to help them tackle the chaos and frustration of owning their businesses and free up their time so they can enjoy the fruits of their labor, all while serving their patients with the utmost care and professionalism. These amazing humans all have one thing in common: they are all puzzle solvers of some kind, and want to help their patients get to the root cause of what ails them so they can heal and in turn live their most fulfilled, embodied life. I’d say we all have that in common to some extent. So, if you’re what we call an “INRP” (Practitioner of Integrative, Naturopathic or Regenerative medicine, or a Psychologist) who is struggling to strike a balance between being the everything person in your practice and an amazing provider, and you’d like to take back your time, I invite you to join us on Monday, February 21, 2022, for a private Roundtable Discussion on how to master Time Leadership as owner and provider.

In today’s episode, I’m thrilled to be speaking with Giuseppe Grammatico, franchise veteran, coach, author, speaker & consultant AND author of “Franchise Freedom: A New Manifesto For Your Financial And Time Freedom.” Giuseppe tells us how he made the decision to get out of the life-sucking 5 hour commute to and from his corporate job and embark on the journey into financial and time freedom through franchising. Giuseppe bought two franchises and became a soccer coach. Over time, he learned so much about the world of franchising that he decided to support future franchisees as a sort of “match maker” to help them find the right franchise fit. You won’t want to miss when shares his clarification of so-called work-life balance and says that overall balance is what we all need to aim for. He says it needs to be sustainable or it will catch up with you. I love how real Giuseppe is and how committed he is to his family. Many entrepreneurs start their businesses to have freedom of time, often stating that they’d like more time with their families. Giuseppe emphasizes the importance of putting your highest priorities on your calendar as appointments. For example, he and his wife have a lunch date every Friday, and it’s on calendar. Sometimes we need to remember what we’re working with (for example, with young children and work flexibility, daytime dates may be the best way to honor a weekly commitment to a date with your spouse or partner.) Listen for his tips on reverse-engineering everything and starting with a clean slate. Think BIG, and put aside wanting to make a certain amount of money to focus on providing value. Ah.. So rich. This conversation inspired me to go bigger! Listen for the rest of his tips and insights. So, grab a beverage or a snack and settle-in to listen to Giuseppe and his amazing journey.
