VA to 600k with Thais Saenz

Posted in

This is by far one of my favorite podcast episodes we’ve recorded to date! We dive into SO MUCH! 

The fears of starting a business.

Going from general VA to niching down.

Building a team that works.

Doing what you love.

Being the CEO you want to be.

Man! We got it all! 

I loved having Thais on the show. She has had a whirlwind of growth with her young business being just about a year and a half old and already hitting 600k! Her story is incredible and I know this is only the beginning for her!

So if you’re ready to dive in with us as well talk about going from being a general VA to 600k then press play on today’s episode!

In today’s episode, we talk about:

  • Beginning your business while battling fears.  
  • Does “niching” down really work?
  • Hiring a team for company culture.

Some of the highlights of this episode include:

“Do it scared”

One of the most difficult parts about starting any business is when you need to overcome your inner battles. 

Thais shares what it was like for her to do just that. She talks about how the mental game was a tough-won battle.

Despite her own extensive work in sales, she faced struggles like many of us:

  • Lack of confidence
  • Plaguing inner-doubts
  • Fear of rejection 

So how did she overcome these fears? 

You have to face the fear. Only by overcoming the fear obstacles in your way will you be able to move forward and onward to your exciting potential! 

Ruth Soukup says it this way, “Do it scared”, and that’s the motto Thais has clung to. 

Another way to overcome your fears is to do a lot of truthful, honest, self-talk.

When you are able to work through those inner doubts and root out those deep fears, you can move on to building a business you love!

Is Niching down really worth it?

I love how Thais talks about going from a general VA to niching within a very male-dominated industry!

We dive into how her unique background in construction paved the way for her to guide her business into working with roofers. 

Thais shares that niching her business was by far the best thing her company could have done. 

After onboarding a roofer and seeing the greater need in the industry, she shares how her company just fell in love with the industry. 

Here’s the thing about niching…

You don’t find your niche, your niche finds you. 

But knowing what you love, knowing what kind of industry gets you going, that’s how you’ll discover the niche that’s just waiting for you to jump in! 

Find what you love and go after it.

“Team. Team Team.”

Do you ever find yourself in a conversation with someone who just gets it?

Well, Thais just GETS IT! 

We dive deep into what it’s like building a team with company culture in mind. 

Thais shares some of her guiding principles that really shaped her team and is continuing to have an impact on the day-to-day operations: 

Hiring – Hire people that are smarter, more intelligent, more talented, and more equipped than you are.

Operating – Running a good business is not micromanaging your team. 

Recruiting – Great people know great people.

It’s all about the team. “Team. Team Team.” Have each other’s back. Work together. Train together. Communicate together.
