Every week we have conversations with the most successful people in our network. We learn their stories and the lessons learned before diving in and getting the real "meat." Every single show has actionable takeaways that listeners can implement in their own life or business. We focus on topics around traffic, brand awareness, wealth growth, podcasting, marketing automation, mindset, lifestyle, and business systematization but have been known to go pretty "off script" from time to time to discuss a wide variety of topics to help people improve their lives. We describe our show as "A Life Improvement Podcasting Masquerading As A Business Podcast."

    Angelo Sisco - The Identity Alchemist

    Angelo Sisco - The Identity Alchemist

    We’re back with another show, chatting with our friend and fellow podcaster Angelo Sisco from Alpha Hippie. One of the things we talk about is having stories around specific things, and how when you listen to others tell stories about the same thing, you can have a reframe and change your perception around this subject. Everything is a frequency, and Angelo has such a deep level of awareness which he trained himself into, and he walks a different plane than most people. You will have so many a-ha moments as you listen to Angelo explain how to reframe your mind and use both feminine and masculine energy to be successful in your business.
    Being a storyteller also has many benefits, and creating your own energetic energy in your life will put you in the right frame of mind. Angelo gives an overview of how he works with clients to create an identity alchemism shift, as well as the secret weapon he uses to change his frequency to match the situation he puts himself in. When you have finished, be sure to check out our previous chat with Angelo and our show with Marx Acosta-Rubio as we talk about how to get over those thoughts which are holding you back to create the mindset you need to move ahead.
    “So much of what holds our lives back is having those past thoughts and experiences and that’s why being able to give good stories and recreate stories in our minds creates new thought patterns, new neural pathways, and expands us, and then we can allow for shifts.” - Angelo Sisco
     
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    How reading the Goosebumps stories as a kid, helped to build a career When telling a great story leads to analogies and insight You’ll never think about tobacco in the same way again after hearing what Angelo has to say The meaning behind the identity alchemist and how you can become your best version of yourself How to change your identity to become a wealthy person Where the best McDonald’s in the world is located!  Insights into feminine vs. masculine qualities Leading a life of bliss and serenity Angelo’s secret, favorite thing that helps him change his frequency How to train your mind to succeed in business We are reading more of your reviews, so tune in - maybe it’s yours

    Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier - This Episode Was Made Using Artificial Intelligence

    Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier - This Episode Was Made Using Artificial Intelligence

    There’s a cool tool that we have been playing with called Conversion.ai which writes copy for you and it’s essentially grabbing information from the web and molding it to your requests with approximately 30 different modes. It helps you come up with ideas, blog posts, emails, subject lines, and some folks are even creating books with it. 
    There’s also a copy idea generator, so we are answering these questions Jarvis came up with along with real questions sent in by our audience. If you want your questions answered, be sure to visit HustleAndFlowchart.com/ask, where you can write your questions and we will answer them live on an upcoming show. 
    We also tell you how we deal with affiliate promotions and how we test the waters, to decide whether a product or service makes sense to go all-in and promote. After you’ve listened, check out our chats with Rich Schefren where we dive into how big tech is changing and what you can do about it, as well as with Nikhil Aitharaju & Ryo Chiba and their views on the future of artificial intelligence and what is next for content creation.
    “We should all be thinking about how we build our own platform or this thing that is a lot more valuable than some stand-alone piece of content that someone is probably cranking through using Jarvis.” - Joe Fier
    “You take a concept from this book and one from this person and then you mold them all together and now you have your own view through your own personal filter.” - Matt Wolfe

    Archit Batlaw - What Does The Future Look Like For eCommerce?

    Archit Batlaw - What Does The Future Look Like For eCommerce?

    On today’s show, we are chatting with Archit Batlaw from Reach Digital. We like how he thinks through things, and how he talks about what it was like to work at Facebook. We also talk about his predictions and the consolidations as to how Facebook is getting into podcasting and how so many big companies are emulating what other big companies are doing. Archit talks about how, if you have followers, that’s way more powerful than figuring out some Facebook ad strategy. There’s the AI that’s available for everyone and it’s optimized already. 
    A lot of the things that people are specializing in right now such as copywriting and media buying are examples of things where AI is getting better and better at. This brings us to the main point in this episode which is how building a brand is everything. We also chat about the latest Apple update, some predictions about the future of the big media companies, and some thoughts on what Apple has in store next. Archit also gives us his thoughts on how he stays focused, how to put your tasks on an axis to determine how much time you may be wasting, and other ways to stay in alignment. After you listen, be sure to check out our shows with Rich Schefren and Bruce Clay for more insight into future trends in the digital marketing world.
    “With a subscription business, you don’t necessarily need to have this churn and burn, with 8,000 customers. You can have 1,000-2,000 customers and have a pretty nice business going.” - Archit Batlaw
     
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    What it’s really like working at Facebook Is Facebook really tapping in our phones? Following the theme of trial by fire to get customers fast Is Facebook a social network or is it an eCommerce network? Where the future of in-app purchases are heading The latest Apple updates and how it affects your tracking Please leave us a review, and if you have already - a big thanks! We are reading them on the show, so listen in, as maybe one of them is yours Predictions on how to stand out in the future with your brand

    Joe Fier & Matt Wolfe - Here's What We'd Tell Ourselves 15-Years Ago

    Joe Fier & Matt Wolfe - Here's What We'd Tell Ourselves 15-Years Ago

    In this episode, we want to talk about the direction of our show and how we’d like to chat with the entrepreneur that was us 15 years ago. We find that there’s a lot missing when we don’t have that perspective in mind, and maybe that’s you or you have a business and you want to go back to basics. We are talking about the handful of things that our younger selves would really appreciate hearing, such as our ideas on delegation, building our list, setting up systems, and how we put content out into the world.
    The overall theme is we want to identify different strategies that can help our younger selves and get past some hurdles and roadblocks even quicker. Another segment of today’s episode revolved around how we’ve been sending out emails, asking how we can help you and what are you struggling with in your business now. So if you have emailed us, listen up as we answer a few of the questions that we have received. When you’re done, go check out our conversations with Scott Carson and Stephen Esketzis for more ideas on how to set up systems and your content strategy to reach your audience more efficiently.
    “Speaking to our younger selves is creating a content machine that allows you to not only grow your brand by putting things out to the world and be able to share it but connecting with highly connected and successful people. You can engineer that yourself by creating your own platform. - Joe Fier
    “I’ve stopped thinking about being happy when and just enjoying what we are doing right now. I’ve shifted my thinking into ‘Let’s just make every day fun, and figure out how to make money off of that fun-ness that we’re having.’” - Matt Wolfe
     
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    Before we knew what we were doing, drinking Corona and hanging out in the driveway The mindset shifts which we both have had in the business, and have led us to have more time on our hands Our platform way of thinking to connect with people and bring your message out to the world How to become a merchant of attention so people can buy attention from you The magic of leveraging a platform to build your own platform The Catch-22 of being concerned about sending too many emails to your list Wise words from the founder of Netflix How our content strategy has allowed us to connect with not only our audience but a slew of amazing entrepreneurs How we structure our free and paid content and why you should give away most of your information for free We are also answering your questions on today’s show. If you are struggling with anything, post your question in the Facebook group, and we will let you know our thoughts on a future episode

    Chris Parker - What To Do With 9 Million Visitors Per Month

    Chris Parker - What To Do With 9 Million Visitors Per Month

    This was a super fun episode with Chris Parker where we covered a lot of things that we haven’t before. Chris is a unique marketer in that he has more traffic than he knows what to do with, and we love the fact that he's built this system to give back to the world. He’s the founder of WhatIsMyIPAddress.com, a tech-friendly website attracting a remarkable 9 million IP-seeking visits a month. We discuss the benefit of banner ads and using an aggregator, and the breakdown of how his site brings in revenue, plus the promotion of his in-house tools which you can find on his site. 
    Chris also talks about how he uses HARO to get interviews for his podcast, Easy Prey Podcast, and his recommendations on how to make your media page stand out to visitors, so perhaps even you will get on television as he did. Motivated by stories of cybercrime victims, in 2020 Chris created his podcast to help followers learn about scams, fraud, and other dangers they face online and in the real world. When your stuff is compromised things can go south fast, and you’ll hear Chris’s take on creating online log-ins, two-factor authorizations, and all the aggravation you want to avoid if you have to contact a website if you lose your information. 
    If you want to dive deeper into the quiz funnel idea that Chris discussed on the show, be sure to check out our show with Ryan Levesque, and if you want to dive deeper into Google ads, you’ll love our show with Justin Brooke.  
    “I have the opposite problem that every affiliate marketer has. I have so much traffic, I don’t know what to do with it all.” - Chris Parker
     
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    The revolution of deep fakes in the world of scammers What to be aware of as business owners, so you don’t get scammed Dealing with bottlenecks in the business, before you get too successful Should you use header bidding in your advertising? Which are the best ad networks to worth with, especially when you are just starting out Why you want a media page and what to include so it gets you more contacts Using VPN networks - whether you should or not and which ones to use An easy solution to get around the possibility of a ransomware attack The three red flags you should know behind most email scams Examples of people who have been scammed and how to make sure you are not next

    Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier - All Day I Dream About Systems

    Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier - All Day I Dream About Systems

    We’re back again with our Therapy Session-ish chat - or soon to be called some other new awesome name. We record them roughly the week before the show goes live, so the content we bring you is as fresh as the memory of the last dollar you made online. Lately we’ve been talking about dialing in all the stuff in our business and how we are aligning our actions with where we are headed in the next 10 years and beyond. We know that we all have things that we do routinely, such as checking emails and touching base with people, and when you have a good system behind it, it’ll make your day go so much smoother. 
    You’ll especially enjoy listening to Matt’s background with designing systems and how his brain works when it comes to fine-tuning the most simple of tasks with the use of some very simple tools. He talks about his three-step process and how he’s able to get to the coveted inbox zero on a daily basis. After you’ve got your mind spinning, be sure to listen to our chats with Paul Minors and David Jenyns who give us even more strategies and tactics to build systems in your life and business, so you can have more time, be more productive, and scale your business.
    “I do the stuff I least look forward to first so that all that’s left for the day is the stuff I do look forward to doing..” - Matt Wolfe
    “There’s the momentum of task completion too. You start with the easiest task first, and you build from that point on.” - Joe Fier
     
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    Bringing the fun energy pre-show a la The Foo Fighters How to constantly be optimizing even the smallest of tasks to make everything more efficient Matt breaks down his 3 step system for handling email communication The tools we use to make our lives easier so we have time for more fun How to get to inbox zero every day Reframing all your work and tasks to be able to look forward to the fun part of your business How to get your systems dialed in, even if you really stink at it Our plans for the future direction of the show Lessons learned about how to change your identity for the better
