    Are you still in bed at 6 a.m.? The most hardcore entrepreneurs are already at the gym by 5.
    Or that's what they say. Should you follow their advice? What's the truth behind waking up early and starting your day before the sun comes up?
    In this episode, we'll discuss why waking up early might be the most harmful advice entrepreneurs follow, and why sleep is way more important that you might think.

    Free Traffic: The Refer A Friend Method

    Free Traffic: The Refer A Friend Method

    Did you know that most of our purchase decisions are made based on recommendations we get from happy customers? Think of the last book you read, the movie you watched or the hotel you stayed in. You can promote your business as much as you want, but nothing beats the power of a recommendation.
    The best part: you can (and should) take advantage of this.
    We invited Raúl Galera from ReferralCandy to tell us how to do it, what makes a referral program successful, what works best in your specific case and how to do it on a low budget.

    Free Traffic: The Hero Outreach Method

    Free Traffic: The Hero Outreach Method

    You know that it's important to get featured on many pages. But how can you convince people to feature you? How do you get the real superheroes in your market to feature you on their websites, channels and feed to get you the backlink and free traffic your business needs so bad? We interviewed Colin Shipp who shared with us how you can find people that are worth reaching out to, who to email, how to frame it and what to say in your emails exactly; what to do if you don't hear back and how else you can benefit from these relationships. Listen in, this simple but often missed method can increase your traffic significantly!

Shane is the real deal

Modern brand & biz building here. Some of these strategies will take real work and focus, some are quick-win gold nuggets...

But no-BS and zero fads. GREAT content!

I’ve used Shane’s toolset Thrive Themes for 3 years and am constantly impressed by their blog quality (plus the tools themselves)...

And I recently ran into Shane in the sauna a few times, googled him to see what other cool stuff he’s up to, and discovered ActiveGrowth...

Exactly what I would have expected from Shane: straight-to-the point online marketing.

My current favorite business-related podcast

Shane is all about creating a business that provides value right away, that's not about growth at all costs, and doesn't kill the entrepreneur. Great stuff - and he has a great accent!
