53: Colin Morgan, Entrepreneur and Host of the Daily Grind Podcast
In this episode of All-In, Daniel’s guest shares the many ways in which golf (or any serious athletic pursuit) can provide a great metaphor for aspiring entrepreneurs. A former pro, Colin Morgan has traded his career in sports to become a popular podcaster, but it wasn’t a move that came without challenges. For one thing, prior to stepping away from golf, his life had been on a narrowly successful trajectory. Floundering was something entirely new for him. Colin has not found his way as a young businessman without failing and failing again. Fortunately, with the help of some perspective from his dad, Colin understood that it was all time well invested – because a significant investment of time is the defining key to long-term success. Today the Canadian host of the “Daily Grind” podcast has a clearly articulated lifestyle vision that aligns equally with his entrepreneurial vision. Listen as Daniel elicits great advice and very specific steps for developing a foothold of the kind Colin has established, using his podcast with more than 3 million downloads as a vehicle to generate revenue and make a positive impact.
52: Sam Moss – Top Podcast Host & Branding Expert
In this episode of All-In, Daniel exchanges lessons applicable to both business and life with Sam Moss, a young entrepreneur navigating his niche in the world of B2B website development and design. The conversation touches on a number of themes that share one thing in common: the value of clarity. Whether it’s defining the clients that best suit your business goals or fully embracing being a dad, Sam and Daniel agree that successful visions are all about two things: keeping it simple and keeping it clear. The 1ClickAgency that Sam founded in upstate New York with his dad has taken a path that will be familiar to entrepreneurs from all industries. It involved a process of figuring out the rapport with small businesses versus a B2B orientation, learning how to discuss money head-on with clients and resisting the fear of losing clients by choosing to narrow the focus. Defining a niche is not self-limiting, says Sam. It’s liberating!
51: Christopher Hines – Top Podcast Host & Branding Expert
If there’s one word that defines powerhouse podcaster and entrepreneur Christopher Hines, it’s focus. In this episode of All-In, the dynamic host of The Personal Branding Playbook Podcast shares with Daniel his journey from a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles to successful, endlessly inspired startup innovator. Chris has developed not only his own personal stable of podcasts but has also pioneered a podcast network, helping to evolve and manage content in a whole new space. He has also lately moved into software innovation with his newest venture, Castocity – a platform to help podcasters monetize their work. Daniel explores what drives Chris and where he hopes to go as the world slowly emerges from pandemic isolation. High on the list is coaching and training young basketball players, evangelizing for the power of discipline and curiosity. Whatever it is? You can figure it out, according to Chris, who brings his can-do wizardry to clients looking to up their podcast content creation, editing, production and marketing game.
Join Daniel in a learning about how Chris went from being the kid who cut out the bottom of a crate to make his own basketball hoop to learning to play four instruments as a young student (in spite of generally not being a fan of conventional “school”) to getting out ahead of the pack in launching his high-profile podcasting career.
50: A&P Business Mastery Strategist Wally Carmichael
There are many ways to measure business success that have little to do with chasing that tantalizing $1 million revenue dream. In this episode of All-In, Daniel focuses the conversation on creating abundance of the kind that drives Wally Carmichael both personally and professionally. As host of both the Men of Abundance and Business Owner Growth podcasts, Wally focuses on the intersection between building success and living successfully. He has developed best practices and tools to help entrepreneurs evolve their businesses while also weaving in all kinds of life lessons gleaned in a long career as a U.S. Army Medic, father, husband and active community member. Together Daniel and Wally share their perspective as dads who value being actively involved in their children’s lives and their belief that there are things in life far more important than the single-minded goal of becoming one of the 4% of entrepreneurial ventures that break the million dollar mark for profitability. As the saying goes, “Some of the best things in life are free.” Wally suggests that income is great but of equal value are things like an abundance of time with family and freedom from debt. This episode also features useful advice for business owners about using mentors to spur growth and the importance of delegating tasks (such as marketing, sales and accounting) to ensure you’re focused appropriately on the core business you’re cultivating. Lots of great perspective from two men who have made living abundantly their mission and their quality of family life the key to meaningful success.
49: Erin Boerema, CEO, Podcast Host & Social Media Expert
Taking a business venture to that next level of success is every aspiring entrepreneur’s dream, but all-too-many of us get in our own way. In this episode of All-In, Daniel invites Optimal VA Solutions founder and brand whisperer Erin Boerema to explain how she went from clutching her business’s reigns like an “I-can-do-it myself” two-year-old to welcoming support for her burgeoning company. Also host of the “Making Sense of Entrepreneurship” podcast, Erin has built an entire digital marketing practice around a toolkit for establishing and enhancing brands of all kinds. She started from the ground up, learning about systems and processes, professional and business development on her own and gradually incorporating the wisdom of mentors. When it comes to evolving startups to another stage of maturity, Erin explains, the smart money is on retaining a coach to help light the way. Entrepreneurial efforts can become so all-consuming that valuable perspective is lost. Daniel elicits from Erin sage advice about how to create a compelling brand profile, defend against burnout and cultivate the kind of team that will unfailingly make you – and thus your venture – better than it was before. Enjoy hearing how Erin went from being an unhappy waitress making $2.32 an hour + tips to pursuing her passion: running a creative business and helping others to do the same, all from the comfort of her home in Jackson, Mississippi.
48: Business Coach and Consultant Diane Helbig
It may be tempting to jump in with a new partner or project, but it’s worth taking a beat to be sure your goals are actually in alignment. In this episode of The All-In Podcast Diane Helbig offers wisdom about the need to strike a balance between joining forces and taking opportunities and doing the necessary due diligence. Whether it’s being approached by a service provider or forming a joint venture, Daniel and Diane share their experiences with scanning the landscape in order to protect your business as you’re growing it.
A successful certified business coach of 15 years, Diane is passionate about helping small companies maximize opportunity while minimizing the kinds of mistakes that drain away time, energy, profit and growth. Inspired by lessons taught by her father, himself a small businessman, Diane uses a hands-on methodology to help organizations and enterprises operate constructively and profitably.
When it comes to optimizing your small business over the long term? Diane and Daniel discuss the importance of taking the occasional “mental health” hour or entire day to reinvigorate and recharge batteries. They also emphasize the importance of doing your homework before forming alliances of any kind and, on the flipside, relying regularly upon trusted colleagues and mentors for positivity and support because, even for the most successful entrepreneurs, the road can occasionally feel long and lonely.
Diane shares more of her expertise in small business management, sales, social media, networking and leadership both in her book, Succeed Without Selling, and also on her podcast Accelerate Your Business Growth.
