    C4 | Episode 13 - To Coach or Not to Coach

    C4 | Episode 13 - To Coach or Not to Coach

    Don't use words like "just" and "might" it gives the trust away and makes you seem uncertain. Especially when you're on sales calls.

    If you're a start-up founder, do you really need a coach? Something I've learnt is instead of spending money because you have it, ask yourself do you really need it. Sometimes you have to do things by yourself and achieve something before you spend. (Inspired by this video by Noah Kagan)

    If you've genuinely tried for 90 days at your business, and nothing has happened, it's time for you to tweak what you're doing. Whether it's the product, the target market, or your sales calls.

    C4 | Episode 10 - Let's get philosophical

    C4 | Episode 10 - Let's get philosophical

    This week I get philosophical. It was my birthday last week, making me 22. A birthday I have been waiting for. The only birthday I have been excited for. In this episode I talk about the power of the numbers 22 and 11 in my family, and the meanings behind them.

    I also talk about making quick decisions, vs longer term ones, and how I usually go about making these quick decisions.

    Finally, people are going to talk you down, especially if you're young and starting a business. They will say "who do you think you are?" and "you're living in dreamland." The only way to get past this is to control where you spend your time. Spend less time with these people, and more time by yourself or with people that cheer you on. Screw the haters.

    C4 | Episode 8 - Justin Bieber

    In todays episode, I talk about Justin Bieber's new song, Lonely, and why I feel like it's a cry for help.

    I also cover the feeling of being at a crossroads. I'm approaching the end of university, and feel like the decisions I make in the next 9 months, will impact my whole life journey. I have to choose wisely.

    Bad habits have also been building recently including lack of exercise, eating sweets and reading my book. I need to work on this.

    We all have high standards, and so today I talk about how I try and deal with my high standards in order to stay productive.

    I also have been asking myself this question a lot recently, "is this where I want to be for the rest of my life?"

Found this amazing Podcast from a Tweet

After a couple messages back and forth I knew this guy had a great business plan ahead of him and I needed to listen to his show. If you are looking for some great advice and want to know how he is both finishing university and juggleing starting a new business you should take a listen.
