Episode 30: Stef Tschida

This week our special guest is Stef Tschida, founder of Tschida Communications (https://www.tschidacommunications.com), a strategic communications company. Stef also founded Minnesota College Essay Coach (https://www.mncollegeessaycoach.com), an organisation aiming to help bring better communications skills to those seeking enrolment at universities.

In our discussion with Stef, we cover:

  • What are some of the most important things to remember when communicating with others?
  • How to know if the communication you tried landed with the recipient and was understood?
  • How best to know what your audience wants and needs to hear?
  • How can people overcome the fear of being told, “you should know this” or “you’re the expert” when asking a question or asking for advice?
  • What’s been valuable to you from a mentoring perspective as Stef became an entrepreneur?
  • How to balance working, growing a business, outside interests and life, and keeping well-being in the mix?
  • What’s the difference between urgent and important?

And stay tuned for the best advice Stef ever received from a mentor!
