    Episode 061 – 3 Lessons Jack Wong Has Learned In His Own Podcast Show in 2018

    Episode 061 – 3 Lessons Jack Wong Has Learned In His Own Podcast Show in 2018

    In Episode 061, Jack has shared 3 lessons he has learned in creating his own podcast show in 2018.  He will pull back the curtain to show you from behind the scene how he conducted all the interviews with his guests to ensure that each episode is uploaded on iTunes and other podcast platform on time without any fail. If you want to create your own podcast show, you would not want to miss this episode, would you?First Lesson - Be Willing to Do ResearchThe very first lesson I would like to share with you in business is about your willingness to take the heat and do research because there's no point of figuring out something by yourself and eventually you can spend 10 years, 20 years, or even 30 years.Yet there's no guarantee that you are able to figure this out. Second Lesson - Implementation is EverythingI learned from one of the podcast hosts from Jamaica in 2017 about how she spent two months doing all the interviews she needs for the entire year.  So I applied this principle and finished all my interviews with my guests in Feb and Mar 2018.  The reason why some people are successful and some people are not when both receive the same information is because the first person decides to implement the ideas and create results.  The other person who received the same information chose not to take any action and go nowhere. Third Lesson - Facilitate the Interview with Guest with EnergyI learned as a host when I received 10 questions from the guest and provided that I studied these questions in advance,  I could jump from one question to the other to make the interview more dynamic and more interesting. In essence, my job as the host is to facilitate the interview to enable the guest to share his/her experience, insights and tips easily and effortlessly. The Jackism for this Episode "Stop Talking About It and Take Action.  Results and Results are the only proof!"

    Episode 060 – Let Ruth King Explain How Entrepreneurs Can Have the Courage to be Profitable In Their Business (Part II)

    Episode 060 – Let Ruth King Explain How Entrepreneurs Can Have the Courage to be Profitable In Their Business (Part II)

    In Episode 059, Jack has invited Ms. Ruth King, who is a serial entrepreneur owning or having owned 8 businesses since 1981, to explain how entrepreneurs can have the courage to be profitable in their businesses.  This will be the Part II of the interview. Ruth has a passion for helping businesses get and stay profitable utiliSing the latest technology that makes sense to use. Ruth is also the #1 Best selling author of The Courage to be Profitable and three other award winning books.What else can you tell where the balance sheet is wrong?"If you're a company that has inventory but you have no inventory on your balance sheet, it is wrong. Because if you've got inventory in your business and you don't have it on your balance sheet, somebody's playing games.  Let's put it this way. They're not creating proper numbers."Spending 15 minutes a month on your business' profitability assessment"I quite frankly don't look at return on equity on a month by month basis. Maybe once a year I looked more at what's called current ratio, which is the thing that says can you pay your bills or not? If you take your current assets, which are things that are cash or turned into cash, like cash receivables and inventory basically, and divide that by current liabilities, which are things that you have to pay within a year and you divide those two numbers is called the current ratio. Your current ratio should be increasing, so if this month your current ratio was two and next month it's two point one and the month after that is two point two. That means your profitability is increasing. If you're current ratio ever falls under one,  you have a problem because you have more bills coming in. Then you have assets to pay them. It's not a good thing."15 ways employees and vendors steal from you and what can you do about it[Ruth is sharing a personal story here ...]Ruth 's Most Favourite Quote"When tough things happen, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going." Want to know more about Samuel? Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ruthking1650Twitter: https://twitter.com/ruthkingLinkedIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ruthking1Email: rking@ontheribbon.comWebsite: http://www.thecouragetobeprofitable.com/Did you like what you heard?If you liked this podcast, please leave a review on iTunes!  Click here to discover the iTunes page.Did you know that Cracking the Entrepreneur Code Podcast Show is on Apple's Podcast app?* Launch Apple's Podcasts app.* Tap the Search tab.* Enter "Cracking the Entrepreneur Code".* Tap the blue Search key at the bottom right.* Tap the album art for the podcast.* Tap Write a Review at the bottom.If you found value in this episode, assist your friend and share this episode on Social Media.Like it?  Take a second to Support "Cracking the Entrepreneur Code" on PatreonBecome a Patron![tcb-script async="" src="https://c6.patreon.com/becomePatronButton.bundle.js"][/tcb-script]

    Episode 059 – Let Ruth King Explain How Entrepreneurs Can Have the Courage to be Profitable In Their Business (Part I)

    In Episode 059, Jack has invited Ms. Ruth King, who is a serial entrepreneur owning or having owned 8 businesses since 1981, to explain how entrepreneurs can have the courage to be profitable in their businesses.  This will be the Part I of the interview. Ruth has a passion for helping businesses get and stay profitable utiliSing the latest technology that makes sense to use. Ruth is also the #1 Best selling author of The Courage to be Profitable and three other award winning books.What is profitability and why is it important?"The key is really and truly understanding that yes, you've got to have profitable sales. If you sell something for a dollar, you have to have it cost less than a dollar. And you have a little bit left on the bottom line,  but you also have to collect for that sale. So you can have tremendous profits and no money in the bank or you can have a loss in one month and have a lot of money in the bank. Now, multiple months losses caused problems obviously, but one month or something like that is ok."Which is more important, the balance sheet or the profit & loss statement?"The balance sheet is more important than the profit and loss statement because the balance sheet tells you about long-term profitability.  You're going to say, wait a minute. my profit & loss statement tells me about profitability too but it does only for a month or only for a specific period of time.Your balance sheet actually talks about the history of your business from the time you started your business or through the time you dispose of it or closes its doors through what is called retained earnings or that amount of profit that you keep in the business. As long as retained earnings keep going up, your profitability will keep going up as a general rule. So the balance sheet tells you whether you can pay your bills on time. Your balance sheet tells you whether you're taking on too much debt. for those of the listeners in your audience who have inventory, it tells them whether there's, they're building up too much inventory.  So those are the types of things that the balance sheet actually tells you every month. And you think, wow, am I able to pay my bills or not?  You know, and that's, I think just as important as whether I have profit or not."You can tell whether a balance sheet is wrong in about 30 seconds!"If the balance sheet doesn't balance, there is something wrong. If you have negative cash on the balance sheet, there is something wrong because you can never ever have negative cash in your business. If you have negative loan payments or anything that's negative on the liability side of the balance sheet, there is something wrong. As a general rule, somebody is either cooking the books I eat, not doing things right or stealing from you or they are just don't know what they're talking about. And if you have a bookkeeper who is incompetent, get rid of him or her."Ruth 's Most Favourite Quote"When tough things happen, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep going." Want to know more about Samuel? Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ruthking1650Twitter: https://twitter.com/ruthkingLinkedIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ruthking1Email: rking@ontheribbon.comWebsite: http://www.thecouragetobeprofitable.com/Did you like what you heard?If you liked this podcast, please leave a review on iTunes!  Click here to discover the iTunes page.

    In Episode 058, Jack has invited  Ms. Jill Lublin, an international speaker on the topics of Radical Influence, Publicity, Networking, Kindness, and Referrals, to share her proven secrets to understanding what the media wants. In this interview, Jill provides you with short-term, doable tactics that boost visibility for you and your brand. Jill is the author of 4 bestselling books including Get Noticed...Get Referrals, Guerrilla Publicity, Networking Magic and her latest, The Profit of Kindness. She is a master strategist on how to position your business for more profitability and more visibility in the marketplace. She is CEO of a strategic consulting firm and has over 20 years’ experience working with over 100,000 people plus national and international media. Jill teaches Publicity Crash Courses as both live events and live webinars as well as consults and speaks all over the world.Why did Jill focus on helping entrepreneurs to gain more publicity?"I have actually been working with people for 24 years and I just love it. And one of the things that, particularly for entrepreneurs that I decided was really important because a lot of them couldn't afford my publicity agency fees.  So I started teaching what I call Publicity Crash Course and I do them as live zoom events so I can work with people all over the world on zoom and as well as live events. I really get to serve people all over the world. I'm a very international spirit and, and for me that's important."What is publicity and why is this important to entrepreneurs?"You must get your message right and part of getting your message right, it's expanding who you are.  It's really all about your message and as a message provider in the marketplace, it's important that you take a step and create visibility without spending a fortune. So when I work with entrepreneurs, their issues is around getting a message right. We create the solution to the problem. I'd like to ask you "what is the problem today? and not "What do you do?" See, that's the distinction. It's about what's the problem out there because when your clients understand what the issue is and your prospects, then we can go somewhere.Then the next step is that you provide solutions and you give real solutions to people, things that they can do simply, easily and quickly. So that publicity gets happening and and that's a great first start. That's really important for building a powerful publicity and is the thing I want people to understand about the power of publicity, how much it really helps people to focus on building credibility, building visibility, building exposure in the marketplace, building what I like to call the 'I've heard of him somewhere syndrome'. I'm building the trust and basically it creates prospects and connects you to clients in ways that are far more frankly accessible and easy without spending a fortune."Gifts from Jill - Publicity Crash Course"Enter the code Superduper" at http://www.publicitycrashcourse.com and you will get this course for USD497 instead of USD1,297.You can work with Jill on her publicity course and it's on zoom so it doesn't matter where you live in the world. We are going to work on the templates that you will have forever in the course of Your Business for publicity and actually you're going to have Jill's brain on your actual documents that will prepare you for the media, including your message, your bio, and an announcement and we're going to do all of those.'Jill's Most Favourite Quote"It's not who you know, it's who knows you."Want to know more about Samuel? Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/publicitycrashcourse/Twitter: https://twitter.com/JillLublinLinkedIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jilllublin/Email: a href="http://...

    Episode 057 – Effective Strategies for breaking Fear and Self-Doubt by Linda Binns

    Episode 057 – Effective Strategies for breaking Fear and Self-Doubt by Linda Binns

    In Episode 057, Jack has invited M. Linda Binns, who is an accomplished personal energy coach, speaker and author of seven self-help books to discuss from her experience the effective strategies to enable her client to experience breakthrough and eliminate self doubt.  Linda is a regular guest on television, radio and podcasts. Her programs and events create powerful transformation leading to personal and professional fulfilment by freeing energy, clarifying focus, and incorporating inner awareness, acceptance, and peace. I was raised not to succeed but ..."I always say I was raised not to succeed. I had really no encouragement growing up and I really grew up believing that I wasn't good enough and I really didn't have anything to offer the world.  But when I started to question that belief, I guess when I first started to work because my bosses would always comment on how good my work was. They would promote me. I would just receive a lot of great feedback. And initially there was a part of me that was afraid that any moment now they'd find out that wasn't true and I really didn't know what I was doing. But there was another small part of me that started to question the belief and to think maybe they're seeing something in me that I'm not seeing.""I think that was my very first introduction to the thought that things could be different. I could be different and that perhaps this belief wasn't true. And that belief because it's a core belief and many people have. It has shown up many ways in my life. And I would say certainly when you start your own business, if you have a sense in any way that you're not good enough, that will come up and you will have to face it ... What I've learned is that if you can deal with it with these things as they come up, if you can deal with every incidence that showing you or reflecting to you that belief, then you work through it. And on the other side of that is all tremendous breakthroughs and that's, that leads to the success that you want"Fear Entrepreneurs are facing - Success, Failure, Getting Thing Wrong"So many entrepreneurs are afraid of the fear of success, but there's also fear of failure. So we have those two things going on. But another thing that I find is that there are so many ideas and so many possibilities that people are afraid of getting it wrong.  Fear of choosing the wrong.  And then that creates this analysis paralysis type thing. There were so many possibilities and you don't know what to do, so you you ended up not doing anything. So fear of getting things wrong. I think all missing out on something it. It's actually a big affair that one might think.""What if" game ...If just changing the thought is difficult, then one of the phrases I like to use, I call it the what if game, because we all very good at saying, what if I don't make it? What if I can't do it? What if they don't like me?

    So I like to encourage people to to turn that around and say, well, okay, but what if I can do it? What would that be like? What if people do like me? What if I could be successful and just play with that I think can lead you to starting to feel differently, which can then lead to you being able to change your thinking.If you're having difficulty believing that you can change the thoughts or even changing the sorts will do anything for you, then I would encourage you to start with what if, well, what if it did work, but what if it did? Yeah, it's a starting point."Linda's Most Favourite Quote​"If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves." - Thomas EdisonWant to know more about Linda? Facebook: https://www.facebook.
