    EP 7. JOE CASABONA: The Value of Relationships

    EP 7. JOE CASABONA: The Value of Relationships

    We human beings are social creatures at heart (yes, even when we’re stuck in traffic, or on the phone to a cable company), and we have a tendency to develop a few intense relationships. 







    Sure, that tendency can make us feel a little needy, but it can also do WONDERS for business. 







    Whether we realize it or not, the people in our lives can make or break our personal bucket lists AND our business goals. You read right. Those strangers on your LinkedIn profile who are constantly sending you poorly-disguised sales pitches? They might just be your ticket over the next big bridge in your career. 







    After all, they say it’s not what you know that matters, but WHO, and Joe Casabona would agree. From humble beginnings as an undergrad, he used his schoolyard relationships and (admittedly) limited work experience to transition into the world of the web.







    Although painfully aware that he was no Elon Musk prodigy, Joe was inspired by his close contacts to nurture his business relationships AND charge his worth, until finally, he founded Creator Courses. Now, he spends his days explaining the complexities of web design, coding, and the nuances of WordPress and Beaver Builder. 







    In this episode of Profit and Impact, Joe takes Nev through the importance of preparing for pitfalls, owning opportunities, and knowing the value of great clients (and even better mentors). 







    So what’s this conversation REALLY about?







    How to make the most of your relationships The importance of knowing your value The value of experience How to work your way up from the bottom 







    Why you should listen







    Joe is a great example of a not-so-negative recession story (it’s possible, I promise!). His story is proof that you CAN create an income with the stability to outlast Armageddon (plus, it guarantees you a well-deserved positivity booster).

    EP 6. BETH LIVINGSTON: The Six Principles of Productivity

    EP 6. BETH LIVINGSTON: The Six Principles of Productivity

    Some days it’s hard to be productive. #hardfact







    Maybe you’ve had a series of late nights (and a LOT of coffee), or you just can’t seem to take the first few actually productive steps towards nailing those big dreams. 







    I get it. After a few cups of coffee and a few insanely late nights, I’m a total loose canon when it comes to focused, targeted work. We’ve ALL experienced a few productivity roadblocks on the path to success.







    Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could bypass all those little barriers and get there faster? If only you weren’t constantly fighting off the threat of scope creep, content collection bottlenecks, competing priorities, and general overwhelm... 







    Becoming a genuinely Productive Person is no easy feat, BUT don’t despair - there is an easier way forward towards getting stuff done for real. 







    This week I speak to Beth Livingston. As the unofficial Venus AND Serena Williams of the WordPress universe, she spends her time setting up those epic shots for her students at WP Roadmaps. 







    Oh, and when she’s not playing with code, she’s busy being as productive as possible, and helping those around her to do the same.







    If project management essentials are always in the land of “maybe later”, Beth’s simple summary might just kick you into productivity overdrive. 







    In this episode of Profit and Impact, I get a lesson on the six principles of productivity management. Beth delves into the not-so-common sense behind the process of defining the job, breaking it down, estimating the time and costs, getting the right resources involved, establishing a change procedure, and agreeing on acceptance criteria. 







    She also gives away a few handy tips for educating your clients, beating off imposter syndrome, and even glomming onto new trends. 







    So what’s this conversation REALLY about?







    The six (not-so-common sense) principles of productivity managementCreating a process that works for you How to save your profit margin by educating your client The game-changing magic of finding your tribe 







    Why you should listen







    If you’ve ever had an unproductive day (and haven’t we all?), this podcast will get you thinking about how to keep those clients happy, even when things are less peak and more trough.

    EP 5. LEE JACKSON: The Meeting Of Structure and Serendipity

    EP 5. LEE JACKSON: The Meeting Of Structure and Serendipity

    We all like a little structure in our lives, even if that just means eating the same thing for breakfast every morning (hello, fruit smoothies), but sometimes it’s the things we can’t plan for that make the biggest impact. 







    Whether that’s something positive, like meeting someone who helps you elevate your business, or something not-so-positive, like getting caught in a hurricane, any change to the norm can be a little rattling.







    So what do you do when that sense of order and “normalcy” goes out the window? If you’re anything like the average person, you might feel a strong urge to hide in that storm shelter, bury your head between your knees, and wait for things to blow over...







    The problem is that you won’t often find golden opportunities waiting inside. So, you decide to brave the rain and winds (and maybe even a few lightning strikes), but ONLY after making a plan. 







    If you ask Lee Jackson, a good old-fashioned action plan is the most important tool in a business’ survival kit - well, that, and the ability to pivot faster than clients can say, “We’ve decided to go in another direction.” As an agency owner and host of the Agency Trailblazer podcast, Lee has spent his career planning and pivoting on repeat, a habit which has led him safely through such panic-inducing storms as the dotcom bubble burst. 







    In this episode of Profit and Impact, Lee shares his storm survival plan for businesses, including a few critical tools like the ability to find (and keep) your ideal clients, start the right conversations, and pivot like a pro. 







    So what’s this conversation REALLY about?







    Embracing the entrepreneurial spirit How to carve out a niche that worksHow to build client relationships that matterThe value of upskilling The real meaning of serendipity 







    Why you should listen







    If you need a little extra sunshine in your life, the story of Lee Jackson’s career will inspire you to keep on pivoting your way through stormy days, and maybe even pick up the phone once in a while.

    EP 4. NEV HARRIS: The Compassionate Capitalist

    EP 4. NEV HARRIS: The Compassionate Capitalist

    When you think of the word “capitalism”, what comes to mind? 







    Maybe you have a mental image of high-powered businessmen strutting around their offices, or ridiculously wealthy CEOs bathing in their money. In some cases, you’d be pretty spot-on. 







    Capitalism has earned a bad reputation over the past forty years, and for good reason. The lure of a few extra dollars (or a few million) has caused its fair share of social issues, beginning with the idea of a money bath. 







    We’ve seen wealthy people get wealthier, poor people suffer, and middle-class people endure a serious struggle over the housing vs. avocado on toast dilemma. 







    What if the problem isn’t with capitalism itself, but with the way it has been structured, used, and abused? 







    (Well, that and the price of avocados…)







    The truth is that capitalism wins when we work towards solutions for the world’s problems. It’s even better when we don’t feel guilty for reaping the rewards. 







    If we think of capitalism as a tool we can use to build a brighter future, we might feel a little better about enjoying its benefits. We’ll be able to enjoy the process of refining it WITHOUT sacrificing the small luxuries we work so hard to earn. 







    The thing about tools is that they only work well when they’re in mint condition. Granted, they all get bent out of shape eventually, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fixed. All they need is a little anti-rust treatment to keep them looking shinier than freshly-minted silver coins...







    And you’ll find just the thing in my latest podcast!  In this solo edition, I share my views on capitalism in business, and how you can have too much of a good thing.







    (Even if that good thing is as delicious as a combination of peanut butter and chocolate.) 







    Tune in to hear all about…







    The positive side of capitalismThe difference between constructive capitalism and greed The value in taking care of people My ultimate guilty pleasure 







    Why you should listen: 















    This topic is evergreen, and it’s especially relevant right now. With the right attitude, we can carry on building (and rebuilding) a system that works for generations to come. If you’re keen to be part of the shift towards compassionate capitalism, you’ll find a few interesting insights in this episode.

    EP 3: KIM DOYAL: The Highway Out Of The Herd

    EP 3: KIM DOYAL: The Highway Out Of The Herd

    In case you haven't heard, content truly is queen (or king ;)). The whole world is hungry for things to read, watch, play...you name it, and you know what that means: there’s always room for more brilliant minds in the industry. 







    Here comes the challenging part - once you break IN to the industry, you’ll find yourself racing to break OUT from the pack as so many others around you make their plans for World Domination off the back of a very similar blueprint. 







    So now for the million-dollar question: how exactly can we stand out just enough to turn a relatively common skillset into an envy-inducing career? There’s no need to dye your hair pink or drive a fancy car, although the latter might just come with the territory. 







    Stumped? 







    Kim Doyal might have a few ideas. 







    Formerly known as The WordPress Chick, Kim stands out for all the right reasons, and she’s no one-trick pony. In fact, she does such a wide range of things that you might wonder whether she ever actually sleeps, but like the anchor in an ocean of lists and to-dos, everything comes back to her passion for content marketing. 







    These days, Kim spends her time working with business owners to develop and implement a content strategy with the pull power to gather a herd of hungry followers all on its own. 







    In this episode of Profit and Impact, Kim talks Nev through the value of making others feel better, being gentle with yourself on the road to greatness, and the magic of Harry Potter.







    So what’s this conversation REALLY about?







    Going all-in on your dreams How to satisfy both your passion and your paycheck The problem with a herd mentality Why you shouldn’t overrate your “nuisance factor”







    Why you should listen































    Kim Doyal is the ultimate mobile mentor. Whether you are a marketing expert, a high school student, a top CEO, or almost anyone in between, Kim’s words will make you feel like part of her own herd (in a good way, of course).
