    Dodging Bankruptcy: The Danger of Chasing Too Much

    Dodging Bankruptcy: The Danger of Chasing Too Much

    I’m joined today by a past guest on this podcast, Danny Robertson of House&Hold.com, who at the time was running five different businesses and had a ton on his plate. Since then he’s faced bankruptcy, come out the other side intact, and has an absolutely incredible story about what can happen when you’re chasing too much and trying to do all the things.
    We’re picking up where we left off and diving into how Danny’s journey has transpired since we last talked, from his near financial death to living a more intentional life, and what it was like living in a 160 sq. ft tiny house with six people. Danny’s story is a lesson for all entrepreneurs on what can happen when we try to bite off more than we can chew, so make sure you don’t miss this episode!

    We're Doubling Down on Live Events

    The real magic of the ECF community is when you get together in person. It’s where stories are born, memories are made, and friendships are created. For the last 2 years, we have wanted to bring someone into the team who could focus on the magic of bringing people together, and I’m happy to announce that Audrey Smith, event planner extraordinaire, has joined the ECF team to up-level our post-pandemic live event game plan.
    In this episode, we’re diving into Audrey’s background in event planning, what made her apply for ECF, and what her favorite planning has been so far. We’re also talking about what is coming down the pipeline for ECF, including a sneak peek of the upcoming ECF Live, and what you can expect in the near future when it comes to regional events.

    Structuring Multi-Owner Businesses for Success and Minimal Regret

    Structuring Multi-Owner Businesses for Success and Minimal Regret

    For the first 12 years of my entrepreneurial career, I was the only shareholder in my business, and I didn’t fully appreciate how much that fact really streamlined decision-making, finances, and governance until I brought on shareholders. The truth is that bringing on shareholders opens up a whole new world in terms of possibilities and opportunities, but it also opens up a whole new set of considerations.
    So, in this episode, I’m jumping into all the things that you should be considering if you’re thinking about starting—or investing in—a multi-owner business so you don’t shoot yourself in the foot. I’ll be sharing how you can set up governance, what to think about when it comes to compensation, some of the different ways boards can be structured, and even what to consider when it comes to selling the business or its shares.

    Can You Realistically Take an Unplugged Vacation with a Large Business?

    Could you really unplug from your business for an extended period? What would that look like? How could you make it happen? What would happen to your business in your absence? These are all questions we’re answering today with my guest, Greg Howlett.
    Greg is the CEO of CaringSunshine.com and Cobblestone Trade, and he recently went off-grid, completely unplugged, for five weeks with his family. As business owners, we all struggle with the work-life balance, so I brought Greg on today to discuss how he is able to step away from his business without things falling apart. Listen in as he shares how you can make it work in your business, the lessons he has learned from years of making unplugged time a priority, and the first step to actually making it happen for yourself.

    Today I am joined by Andrew Faris, the CEO and man behind 4×400, a holding company that launches and grows eCommerce brands. He is also the voice behind The eCommerce Playbook podcast, and one of the things I love most about him is his super candid thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly of eCommerce businesses.
    Listen in as Andrew dives into the businesses he has purchased, what went well, what didn’t go well, and some of the hard knocks he experienced along the way. We also talk about the difficulties of protecting cash flow without relatable revenue streams to forecast from, and Andrew shares some of his favorite pieces of eCommerce tech.

Overcoming Insecurities

This was the first eCommerce Fuel podcast that I listened to and it was just I needed! I am just starting out in eCommerce and I honestly have a lot of insecurities about whether this is going to be successful. I love the tips you gave and the mindsets to adopt that you suggested. You are right that if it is not uncomfortable for you, you are not growing. Thanks Andres
