Key Takeaways:

[0:22] Today’s episode features Masha Malka, an entrepreneurial coach and author, whose colorful past will inspire anyone who listens.

[2:30] Josh welcomes Masha to the show.

[3:15] Masha started coaching because she wanted pass her understanding the challenges of being an entrepreneur and actually be able to “talk the talk” with anyone who needed her expertise.

[5:50] Today, it is easy to get bogged down with the massive amount of information out there. Find the information that is relevant to you, then actually apply it in order to achieve success.

[7:00] Masha goes through her upbringing in the Soviet Union, and how easy it was to go about life without knowing that there was anything better or different outside of her surroundings.

[10:45] Masha gives a lot of credit to her parents for getting them out of the Soviet Union, especially their mom who kept applying for their family to leave.

[13:30] Masha’s family was able to come to the US because of a relative who vouched for them. They were able to gain citizenship five years later.

[19:08] Life really is about struggles; that’s what makes us grow and learn.

[22:30] Masha got her start in the entrepreneurial world in the community she currently lives in in south Spain. One day at an international supermarket, she noticed they didn’t have a Russian section and Masha jumped on the opportunity.

[23:45] One of the most important aspects in selecting an entrepreneurial field is identifying the need for that product or service.

[27:30] Masha’s passion for entrepreneurship blossomed from the creation of her business. Being able to create something out of nothing and adding value to the world is so gratifying.

[29:30] It is easy to get discouraged by others around you who have always known what they wanted to do in life and have clear-cut goals, but life is constantly evolving, and you just have to look for the need in the world when an opportunity presents itself.

[33:14] When Masha was doing a lot of seminars, she would notice that people would spend all this time and money coming to seminars but then go back to their day-to-day life without applying the things they learn. She challenged herself to change this.

[35:50] The concept of her first book, The One Minute Coach: Change Your Life One Minute at a Time, is that each chapter only takes one minute to read and apply with the hope of giving them a new perspective on things they maybe didn’t know or have forgotten.

[38:40] Now she has changed her focus helping others with decision making, which is what her new book The One Minute Coach to Mastering Your Emotion is about. She believes that if we stop being slaves to our emotions, it changes how we experience life.

[40:45] This is especially applicable for those in franchising who have to make tough and stressful decisions that affect their lives long-term.

[42:00] It is important to recognize that everything that happens to us is neutral until you give it meaning.

Started listening to Josh's podcast after the wife and I decided to buy a franchise and I quickly went through about 200 episodes on 1.5x & 2x, before signing on to purchase a franchise. Josh's info was an invaluable part of our decision to buy, and after listening to so many episodes, I felt like I knew and trusted him on a personal level, so it was a no-brainer to enlist his services when it came time to review the franchise agreement. Josh was super easy to talk to and very empathetic to our needs, and being first time business owners, we needed all the empathy we could get. Josh helped us negotiate a great deal with the franchisor and we were very happy with his services. Great podcast, great guy, great service to anyone involved in the franchise world!
