    #9 The Power of Podcasting to Expand Your Network | Simon Thompson

    #9 The Power of Podcasting to Expand Your Network | Simon Thompson

    Creating your own podcast isn’t the only way to leverage the power of podcasting. In this episode of the #RiskFreeFunnel, podcast guy – Simon Thompson shares at least three ways you can ride the wave of podcasting to grow business relationships and create new opportunities.

    Simon Thompson is a content marketer for podcasts, and he’s the founder of Content Kite. In the past he has worked on major content projects with publishers such as Daily Mail and MSN, and brands such L’Oreal, Nissan, Disney and Nike to name a few.

    Show quotes:

    "Somewhere between 10%-20% of people will read a whole blog article.” "If you think about a video or blog, you’re at the behest of distractions such as email or Slack.”

    "With podcasting, 80% of people will listen to all or most of an episode. In terms of engagement, audio content wins the day.”

    On the benefits of hosting a show vs. being a guest on a show:

    "If you’re looking to get leads, I’d say going on other people’s show is the best way to go” [because you access their audience].

    "If you want to build an audience, there are a million ways you can utilise the benefits of building an audience, but it’s a much longer play."

    #8 (Pt 2) The Single Most Significant Technology Advent In Our Lifetime | Josh Comrie

    #8 (Pt 2) The Single Most Significant Technology Advent In Our Lifetime | Josh Comrie

    In this episode we explore the topic of Artificial Intelligence and why it’s likely to be the single most significant technology advent in our lifetime. Josh shares a handful of insights and what you need to know to prepare your business in this significant technology revolution.

    Guest bio:
    Through his role as CEO for Ambit AI, Josh advises organisations and individuals on how to extract the value from the emerging AI technology.

    Josh’s perspective of AI is unique as he blends the human element, a business level view of technology and the future of work.

    "The workforce of today, like the education system of today is one that's been designed around the industrial revolution. And so it's a clock-in / clock-out work for a single purpose, inside a single organisation, often with divided functions and responsibilities.”

    "With the world evolving in a way that people are wanting a bit more meaning and purpose again out of their work"

    “We've got this thing that's been emerging called the 'gig economy' Whereby people would like to gain control back of the function and the direction of their career has as it pertains to their lives."

    "We are still producing more lawyers and accountants in New Zealand than anyone else. They’re far in excess of our current requirements."

    "If you look out 5 years your can see very easily that we’re going to need less than half the number of accountants that we have today. And in ten years, we’re going to need less than ten percent of the accountants we have today.”

    Josh shares with us why even small businesses and organisations that adopt this technology can leverage a five-year advantage over their competitors.

    Quotes from the show:

    On meditation and rising early:

    "It’s the things I’ve put in place to ensure I’m able to deal with whatever is going to happen during the day."

    “Through the practice of meditation I feel I need less sleep”.

    “Although you might lose that hour of pillow-time in the morning, it (meditation practice) tends to give back many times over”.

    "Artificial Intelligence is the Single Largest Technology Advent in Our Lifetime."

    "The organisations that make a move a year before another organisation they will gain what would have been a 5 year advantage 20 years ago.”

    #5 How to Respond to Personal and Business Risk | Johny O’Donnell

    #5 How to Respond to Personal and Business Risk | Johny O’Donnell

    Johny O’Donnell shares his wisdom on how to grow business online and reduce risk in both business and at home. In this show we look at how consultants, coaches and therapists can outsmart rather than outspend to gain clients, and reduce the dependence on themselves in the business to enable them to work more creatively and strategically.

    Guest Bio:

    Johny is a Founder of Shifton a business education and consultancy firm. He is a Strategist, Consultant & Speaker on Marketing, Digital & Generations in the Workplace; he has a very fresh approach to business and one that approaches customers with a lot of care and respect

    Quotes:

    “How can you move slow while things are moving fast? How do you slow the world down in such a way that when you’re required to be on and you’re required to be constantly going, and you’re required to make quick decisions and work fast, how do you slow that down in such a way that you get the chance to enjoy it?”

    “Capital can make us lazy... the last thing (the business) needed was fuel, it actually needed more thought not more money”

    “You have to outsmart rather than outspend people”

    “Adversity... has really helped shape the business today”

    “Confusion is the step before breakthrough.”

    “What you are looking for in life is full absorption - the good, the bad, the ugly, the interesting - you want to take it all in. That means a lot of the time you will find yourself in this situation where you’re overwhelmed and you’ve taken on too much and that’s in your personal life and professional life. But that’s what live our life to full absorption and passion is, and you don’t have to let go of that”.

    “I may not be in complete control, but I am in control in a number of ways”

    “The sooner you start designing a business that has a life without you the better, because you can still achieve all of your goals and free yourself up in such a way that you can play in your zone.
    “The quicker you can free yourself up to do the things you’re good at… and the sooner you can start to create an asset for yourself, and not a job or a life sentence... the more freedom you’ll have.
    “The more freedom...space and financial security you have, you’ve got a greater chance of having more headspace for creative and strategic breakthroughs - that will actually make you more successful and rewarding.”

    #4 How to Sell Your Expertise With Confidence | Liston Witherill

    #4 How to Sell Your Expertise With Confidence | Liston Witherill

    Liston Witherill shares his fresh approach to sales: 'Serve, don't sell'. In this show we look at how consultants, coaches and therapists can earn authority, build trust and land great clients.

    Guest Bio:

    Liston is a sales coach and trainer who works with consultants to help them sell their expertise with confidence. He's also a Keynote Speaker & Podcast Host.

    Quotes:

    “What are the conditions that come up before that person knows exactly what their problem is, and how can I help them clarify it?”

    “How does someone go from first having some awareness that there’s something that needs to change in a concrete way; what is on their mind and how can you help them make those decisions - that should be the thing that you’re approaching your market with.”

    By slowing down, not “going in for the kill” straight away, having something for people who are at different stages of the decision process, and staying in touch on a regular basis, you will become the obvious choice when they are ready to buy.
