Stacy Tuschl is a speaker, business coach, and the owner of The Academy of Performing Arts in Wisconsin. She is the author of the book “Is Your Business Worth Saving?” where she reveals proven strategies for pulling entrepreneurs out of a rut and launching them toward business success.

In episode 168, Stacy shared 5 big takeaways from Social Media Marketing World. Today, she’s here to share 4 things she learned at the same conference that has nothing to do with social media marketing.

Also, the podcast is undergoing a bit of restructuring. From now on, Stacy will do Facebook Live broadcasts that will then be turned into podcast episodes. This change will allow for better repurposing of the content. So if you are on the email list, you will get a notification of the Facebook Live every Wednesday around noon and you can catch the show live.


Success needs to be balanced. At minute 2:50 Stacy talks about how the truly successful people are balanced in every aspect of their lives. True success only comes when you have the entire life you want, not just the successful business.

Masterminds are everything. At minute 4:05 Stacy talks about her amazing mastermind. There are couples in my mastermind and there are so many great relationships to be developed there.

No new friends. At minute 5:20 Stacy talks about how one session at SMMW talked about the limited amount of time they have to cultivate relationships. So, it means that you don’t have any time for any new friends because you are so busy deep diving into the relationships in their masterminds.

Some of the best conversations happened in the hallways. At minute 7:40 Stacy talks about how she had her best conversations in the hallways. She felt bad about skipping sessions but learned so much more by learning from individual conversations in the hallways.

Speakers on stage were nervous to speak at a huge event. At minute 9:20, Stacy talks about how many speakers had been given the stage and all it takes is raising your hand and applying to speak to a group. It’s time to pitch to speak in any conference you feel you can contribute to.
