TMBA626: Talking Shop: Business Goals, Inflation, and Our Favorite Locations

Podcast 43:02| Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

We’ve been receiving a lot of requests from our listeners lately for an old-school “talking shop” type of episode.

This week, we’re doing just that, and in typical Tropical MBA fashion, we are focusing on three specific topics that are top of mind as the year comes to a close.

We start the episode off with a discussion about whether we believe we are on the correct path to achieve our goal of building an 8-figure business in the near future.

The second segment is an in-depth look at the dreaded “I word” that we’ve been hearing so much about lately: Inflation, and the ramifications that it is having on entrepreneurs everywhere.

Finally, we’ll be wrapping up the episode with some lighter conversation, as we talk about some of our favorite locations for digital nomads and open up about our event schedule for 2022.
