    Episode 79: How to Get Started as a Website Designer

    Episode 79: How to Get Started as a Website Designer

    Today's guest is Chris Misterek, the founder of Self-Made Web Designer and he's here to chat with us about just that: getting started as a website designer. We chat about what's appealing about a career in website design and how to take the first few steps in teaching yourself website design from scratch. Chris also shares with us how he was able to build a client roster and provide some advice for others who are looking for more work.


    I have a feeling that Chris is a guest that we will have to have back on the podcast to continue exploring the how-to's around website design. But if you are looking to connect with Chris before that, he is launching his own podcast. The tentative launch date is March 3rd, 2020 and I will be sure to link it in the show notes as soon as it is available.

    Episode 78: 5 Steps to Creating Content

    Episode 78: 5 Steps to Creating Content

    Today's guest is Jess Dang, founder of Cook Smarts, an online meal planning service. Jess started Cook Smarts in 2012 to help families live healthier lives, feel empowered and inspired in the kitchen, and to lighten the mental load of meal planning.


    Jess and I chat about content creation and the 5 step approach she takes in creating content for Cook Smarts that you can apply to your own business. And, she's really the perfect guest to be chatting about content creation, since it is really what her business is built around.


    Krista and I are signing up for a 30 day free trial of Cook Smarts, so we will have to keep you updated on how that goes. If you are also interested in a trial, head on over to cooksmarts.com to check it out.

    Episode 77: How to Craft a Mission Statement

    Today's guest is Emily Sexton, the founder and CEO of The Flourish Market, a shop where every product has a bigger purpose, just like you. And purpose is much of what we chat about today. Emily shares with us how we can craft the mission and message of our own businesses. I think this is critical in communicating effectively about the value of what we do.


    If you are not familiar with The Flourish Market, go and check it out as soon as you are done listening to this episode. As you find out in the episode, it is a very interesting story.

    Episode 76: The Ins and Outs of Quarterly Planning

    Episode 76: The Ins and Outs of Quarterly Planning

    Today I am joined by Creative at Heart conference host and founder, Kat Schmoyer. Kat is joining me on the podcast to talk about quarterly planning, a very timely discussion at the beginning of the year here. But it is important to remember that there is nothing special about January 1st, so regardless of when you are listening to this podcast episode, you can start planning at any point during the year; it is never too late.


    Kat and I discuss everything from why quarterly planning, what sorts of things are looked at each quarter, who should be involved, how far in advance you should you plan, and setting yourself up for success so that you can actually execute the plan you lay out for yourself.


    If you are interested in learning more about Kat and Creative at Heart, be sure to check out episode 6.

    Episode 74: How to be a Compelling Presenter (Pre-Showit United 2019)

    Episode 74: How to be a Compelling Presenter (Pre-Showit United 2019)

    Today I am joined by Speaking Coach Mike Pacchione. Mike has flown around the world teaching people how to give presentations. And he’s worked with some pretty big names companies—as he puts it, while he’s not at liberty to discuss every company he’s worked with, if you have used a computer, phone or search engine today, you’re probably familiar with one of his clients.


    I hired Mike to help me get ready for my United 2019 keynote presentation. Although I feel comfortable speaking in front of people, I wanted some help continuing to develop that craft, and I chat a little more about that in these episodes.


    This is part 1 of a 2-part episode. This episode was recorded PRIOR to my keynote, and we discuss some general advice for giving better presentations, Mike critiques a past presentation of mine, and, of course, we get to hear a bit of Mike’s story.


    The 2nd of this 2-part episode was recorded AFTER my keynote and reflects on my experience working with Mike, and he gives me some feedback on how I did. My hope is that this behind-the-scenes is helpful to you the next time you’re crafting a presentation for a group of people.


    If you’re interested in watching the keynote I presented at United, which was titled: The Only Two Questions You Need to Answer to Win Business (and how to answer them on your website), check out the show notes at https://daveyandkrista.com/btb-mike-pacchione-episode-74

    Episode 75: How to be a Compelling Presenter (Post-Showit United 2019)

    Episode 75: How to be a Compelling Presenter (Post-Showit United 2019)

    This is part 2 of my 2-part series with Speaking Coach Mike Pacchione. If you haven’t listened to the first episode, no problem! You can listen to this episode without having to listen to the first part.


    Just as a quick reminder about who Mike is: He has flown around the world teaching people how to give presentations. And he’s worked with some pretty big names companies—as he puts it, while he’s not at liberty to discuss every company he’s worked with, if you have used a computer, phone or search engine today, you’re probably familiar with one of his clients.


    I hired Mike to help me get ready for my United 2019 keynote presentation. Although I feel comfortable speaking in front of people, I wanted some help continuing to develop that craft, and I chat a little more about that in these episodes.


    This episode was recorded after I had already given my keynote at United, and it reflects on my experience working with Mike, and he gives me some feedback on how I did. My hope is that this behind-the-scenes is helpful to you the next time you’re crafting a presentation for a group of people.


    The first episode was recorded PRIOR to my keynote, so if you’re looking for some more general advice for giving better presentations, that’s the episode to check out. Mike also critiques a past presentation of mine, and, of course, we get to hear a bit of Mike’s story.


    If you’re interested in watching the keynote I presented at United, which was titled: The Only Two Questions You Need to Answer to Win Business (and how to answer them on your website), check out the show notes at daveyandkrista.com.
