    Hinge Podcast: Bonus Episode – Michael Utley Uncut

    Hinge Podcast: Bonus Episode – Michael Utley Uncut

    In episodes two and three of the Hinge podcast there are clips from my conversation with Michael Epps Utley of Epps Interactive in Nashville. Michael is a friend and has a lot of wisdom to share...much of which didn't make it into the previous episodes but is worth sharing.

    While I'm working on the next chapter of episodes for the podcast I'll be releasing a few uncut conversations. This particular recording with Michael was back in early December 2014. A lot has changed in the six months as I've gotten more clarity about how I'm hinging yet much of what Michael says that didn't show up in the official podcast episodes is still very applicable.

    Hinge Podcast Episode 3: Do Something

    Hinge Podcast Episode 3: Do Something

    In this episode I realized that I had come face to face with a decision to make: am I more interested in making a name for myself or am I more interested in doing something? Those aren't the same thing each path sets off a chain reaction that leads to different outcomes.

    Trying to be somebody is a vastly different goal than choosing to do something. You'll hear a quote from the 2011 film, Iron Lady, that perfectly captured this thought.

    I have chosen my path and it is the one less popular and less travelled. It's not an easy path but it's the right path.

    Special thanks to Michael Epps Utley and Chris Thomas for contributing again to this episode.

    Hinge Podcast Episode 2: Blind Spots

    Hinge Podcast Episode 2: Blind Spots

    In this episode I went searching for blind spots. While on the one hand I feel like I'm on the right path, I can't help but wonder what I don't know. Am I missing something? Is there something I don't see? Can I even make this shift from an agency to a personality?

    To find out, he spoke to three friends who all lend their perspective on what they think I can do, can't do and a few things I wasn't even admitting to himself.

    Special thanks to John Michael Morgan, Michael Epps Utley and Chris Thomas for contributing valuable insights and thought provoking views about where I'm trying to go.

    Please subscribe to the show on iTunes or Stitcher. If you like what you hear, please rate and review the podcast and be sure to tell someone else about the show. After all, everyone is hinging in some way or another.

    Hinge Podcast Episode 1: Here We Go

    Hinge Podcast Episode 1: Here We Go

    I'm excited to finally have the first episode of the Hinge Podcast ready for download. When I thought about doing a podcast several months ago I knew I wanted something that I could say was uniquely mine. I hope you'll find that to be the case.

    In this first episode I give some background about who I am, how I got to the point of needing to make a pivot, and what I hope all this change is about. I want the show to feel like a peek behind the curtain into the conversations that happen when someone is taking steps to change so in this episode you'll hear some conversations I had with my wife, Melanie, as we discussed the ups and downs of self-employment and speculation about the likelihood of my success as I hope to transition into building a platform/audience around his perspective on marketing.

    Please subscribe to the show on iTunes or Stitcher and once you've listened to it leave a comment.

    Here we go. Enjoy.

Great show on navigating change!

I’ve long been a friend and fan of Bill Seaver. He’s smart, strategic and someone I commonly turn to for marketing and business advice. Now that he’s pivoting his business model, I’m excited to watch how Bill does it because we all have to go through things like this - especially as business owners.

I think it’s great that Bill is giving listeners a peek behind the curtain to show what it’s like to make such a transition. If you’re an entrepreneur or business owner, you’ll want to follow along as Bill navigates through this change. I’m confident you’ll learn a lot from his journey!

Got Change?

Change is constant and inevitable. We stink at acknowledging and recalibrating with it.

Bill's here to help. Subscribe to watch firsthand.
