    038: Why Are You Doing That?

    From time to time it is a good idea to check in to see why we are taking the actions we take. Some of the tasks on our to-do list are very valuable and others not so much.

    It is useful for us to ask the question "Why am I doing this?" This week in the podcast we explore how to evaluate the value of each of the tasks we do and decide if we should continue to do them.

    037: Mission v Unique Value Proposition

    036: Give Them Cookies!

    One the most profitable decisions that I have made in my business is to give away a great deal of free content. For my main business I have created over 700 free resources since 2007.

    Of all the free resources I have created, none of them have been in or attached to my weekly email newsletter. I have always included links from the newsletter to my website.

    This week in the podcast I explain the two reasons why I do this.

Love how practical all the tips are

This is the one podcast I listed to as soon as it comes out. Every episode has concrete tips I can take now to help me run my business more effectively and efficiently. Rather than pie in the sky concepts or the same old info that everyone is sharing - Gene shares solid information on what he uses in his business every day.
