Welcome to Episode 155 of Building My Legacy.
In this podcast we talk with Oscar and Kiya Frazier, a husband and wife team who have found a way to work together successfully in their own business. They share with us how they became a “couple-preneur,” how they lost nearly everything and how they were able to rebuild a thriving business with two very different facets. Their nDemand Consulting business, which specializes in global crisis management and business efficiency, has a division called KO Thought Leaders. This division helps couples in business develop structure and strategies that nurture the balance between business and home.
Even if you’re not part of a “couple-preneur,” you’ll find our discussion with Oscar and Kiya helpful if you’re ready to do something different in your career … leaving the corporate world and looking at the next chapter of your life … or thinking about the legacy you want to leave.
So if you want to know:
- How an introspective analysis can help you overcome the things that have held you back and help you more forward successfully
- Why “defining lanes” is so important for couple entrepreneurs
- The importance of setting micro goals and looking at the “90-day runway”
- How there’s no such thing as “perfect timing”
- How to keep a work-life balance when you’re an entrepreneur — or a couple working together
About Oscar and Kiya Frazier
Oscar and Kiya Frazier were still in corporate life — Oscar in project management, Kiya in marketing — when they started nDemand Consulting. But when, within a few months of their wedding they both lost their jobs, they decided to do the “entrepreneurial thing” full time and, as Oscar puts it, “have not looked back.” Today nDemand Consulting brings ideas into reality, shapes brands to be instantly recognizable and takes concepts from ideation to launch. A division of their company — KO Thought Leaders — advises couple-preneurs on topics such as building a stress-management plan, trust and respect boundaries, optimizing your combined efforts, avoiding communication breakdowns and the art of unplugging. To contact the Fraziers, text the word “business” to 678-672-1444 for links to more information, including their book, Confessions: The Truth About Perfect Timing.
