147: Reclaim Your Time With Strategic (And Affordable) Outsourcing, with Pete Mockaitis

Finding Brave

Thank you for listening to our Finding Brave show, ranked in the Top 100 Apple Podcasts in Careers! “Don’t just knee-jerk assume you have to get it all done yourself. Where is it appropriate for you to do it yourself, versus getting a super genius, professional specialist, versus just a pretty smart person that can live in any nation and learn it and do it?” - Pete Mockaitis Despite common misconceptions, it is possible for individuals to reclaim their precious time and stop doing everything in their business themselves, without it having to cost a great deal. But it takes courage to overcome the resistance of letting go of tasks, and today’s Finding Brave guest explains how we can do it with strategic outsourcing. I’m so excited to be discussing this with him today, as overcoming our “perfectionistic overfunctioning” and trying to do everything ourselves and get an A+ in all of it (when in many cases would be better to delegate) is a key topic I address in my new book The Most Powerful You. Pete Mockaitis is an award-winning trainer and coach who helps professionals perform optimally at work. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Inc. and more. Pete has delivered 1-on-1 coaching to over 700 leaders hailing from world-class organizations (such as Google, FedEx, Amazon, Apple, Anheuser-Busch, and the United Nations), 50 countries, and every Ivy League university. He began his career at Bain & Company and currently hosts the How to be Awesome at Your Job podcast. The show has been downloaded over 13,000,000 times and consistently ranks as a top business show in Apple Podcasts. I got so much valuable information from this conversation with Pete, and what he shares can help you start scaling your business right now. It’s time to stop the overwhelm and exhaustion and start receiving the support you need from others, and have more fun doing work you truly love!

77: Entrepreneuring Your Way To Financial Freedom with Pete Mockaitis

BiggerPockets Money Podcast

Pete Mockaitis grew up in the cheapest place to live, Danville, IL. He watched his mother work her way up the local credit union ladder from teller to CEO, simply by doing more than necessary, repeatedly. His mother strongly discouraged debt, having seen so many of the credit union’s customers declare bankruptcy and have their entire bank accounts wiped out. As a kid, he saw firsthand that hustle pays off. He helped his brother with his paper route for a quarter, only to learn his brother was making $1.80. After high school, he got into college on a full ride scholarship, and graduated into his dream job with Bain & Company. He saved money by skipping the little things like taking a cab when he could walk, having roommates instead of living alone, and drinking water instead of ordering drinks when he was out. Pete’s true calling was entrepreneurship. To prepare for the jump to self employment, he figured out his burn rate - and discovered it was a lot lower than he originally thought. By figuring out how much he was spending, and computing the value of his pre and post tax time, Pete optimized his path to Financial Freedom, and is now enjoying the fruits of his labor. In This Episode We Cover: Pete's journey with money Lessons he learned from his mother How he applied the lessons he learned in his approach to early financial freedom How he pursued early financial freedom On growing up frugal Why it took him 3 years to save a year’s worth of living expenses His advice for people who would like to try the entrepreneurial route The importance of being smart with your savings On being real and quantitative On tracking recurring and non recurring expenses and breaking it down into dollars per day On his revenue generation His advice on building revenue On investing And SO much more!
