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.

Today I'm talking to Anna Oakes! Anna is truly a powerhouse with quite the resume…she recently did a TedX talk and we are going to dive into how that happened and what the process was like. Anna works with people to build high performing teams and we all know that you can only do so much as a solo entrepreneur and she is on a mission to maximize high performers on every team!

“Sometimes we get in our own heads and I over did it…” At minute 1:55, Anna is giving us a look into her business and more about what she does. Plus, hear the journey, application process and how she created her TedX talk.

“Because I'm a coach, I've always had a coach…” At 11:30, Anna tells us the reasons she joined the Powerhouse Mastermind. Was she looking or seeing one out? We're also chatting about the reasons everyone should have a coach and be in a mastermind!

“What is my highest and best use that I can impact the most people in the most way…” At minute 18:28, we're diving into the opportunities Anna had to reach a broad audience and how that can often paralyze people into overwhelm. I'm asking her how she worked through that to figure out who she should serve and she tells us about the mindset shift she had.

“Be open to new challenges that come your way…” At 24:06, Anna is telling us what's to come for her business as 2019 wraps up soon. Hint: big things coming for her!
