    So how do you do that?
    There are 4 key principles in chess that you can apply in your business as an entrepreneur.

    2. King safety - just like in Chess, you need to prioritize the safety of your business. Don't do anything that has the potential of ruining you or ruining your business.
    3. Improve your worst place piece - optimize and improve your worst pieces of your business.
    4. Think in terms of scenarios and possibilities - Don't just pick one path and go down it think in terms of multiple paths.

    Why You Need to Understand Different Aspects of Your Business

    Why You Need to Understand Different Aspects of Your Business

    When I first became an entrepreneur, I wanted to offload as much work as possible to other people. I didn't have a hands-on approach— and I didn't know what my staff was doing.
    As a result, I started to encounter different problems in my business.
    As an entrepreneur, you need to understand ALL the aspects of your business. You need to understand how these different things are done, why they're being done, and how they fit into your brand's overall strategy.
    Tune in to this episode.

    How To Publish Unlimited Content and Expand Your Reach

    How To Publish Unlimited Content and Expand Your Reach

    My wife Blake and I create content in pretty much every form you can think of. A lot of people have asked us how we are able to make so much content.
    The truth is that we don't really create new content every time.
    Do you want to know the secret? We take one piece of content— and we find a way to chop it up, dissect it, repurpose it into many different ways— and then share that content across different platforms and channels.
    Repurposing and reusing content is a fantastic strategy for entrepreneurs, especially those of you out there who are looking to build a personal brand or a brand for your business.
    Tune in to this episode and learn how it is done.

    If You're Bossy You Should Be An Entrepreneur

    If You're Bossy You Should Be An Entrepreneur

    Do people consider you loud, bossy, or overly self-promotional?
    You are an incredible candidate to be an entrepreneur.
    Being loud and bossy means that you have opinions, you're decisive, and you've got a lot of energy to give. It means you are mindful and deliberate about promoting yourself — and you are not afraid to ask for more.
