    Create for an Audience of One

    You create content to build an audience...not the other way around!
    ​This week, I'm proposing that you create your content for an audience of one, and my guest, Jody Maberry, is living proof that this strategy works.

    ​There are only two ingredients to this recipe:

    Do content that you're passionate about. Show Up. ​It's as simple as that. And, if you have any doubts about your abilities or my advice, perhaps Jody's story will boost your confidence in both.

    Key Insights
    You don't need a big audience to launch ​Jody started his podcast for park rangers with an audience of zero Read Kevin Kelly's book: 1,000 True Fans (linked below) Jody built another podcast literally for 1 specific person

    Is 58 Too Late?

    Is 58 Too Late?

    I very often get some form of this question:

    "Is 58 too late to ____?"

    The number is arbitrary, and this line of questioning can go on and on... Am I too old? Am I too fat? Am I too thin? Am I too shy? Am I too...whatever.

    ​This week, I'm giving you my best answer to all of those questions.
    Key Insights
    Many people are asking if it's "too late" What is your purpose? Purpose drives persistence​Raving fans beat satisfied customers​ Build your personal brand based on who you really are ​Not being everybody's cup of tea is the whole point ​Personal branding gives you the power to leave a lasting impact on others​ Personal branding allows you to be a category of one ​Use the Social Media Amplification Effect​ Personal branding brings you continuous growth ​Great platform from which you can start a coaching or membership program

    Poverty Is Spiritual Warfare

    Poverty Is Spiritual Warfare

    Many Christians are culturally programmed to feel guilty about wealth, but is poverty God's plan for us? No!
    Today I propose that God wants you to prosper in all things that are good, including business (and I have the verses to prove it).
    We are engaged in a spiritual battle ​Poverty is spiritual warfare Read I Thessalonian's chapter 4, beginning with verse 9 "Brotherly Love" is a core concept of our faith Relationships based on love and unity create an environment where poverty dissipates We can overcome the chains of poverty and help free others as well Live with integrity and win trust These principles apply whether you're a Christian or not Video And Transcript

    Plan Your Year

    Plan Your Year

    This week I'm giving you a simple, 5-step process to help make 2024 the best year your business has ever had. Of course, I said "simple"...not easy.

    The toughest pill for most business owners to swallow is this: You probably need to stop doing 20-50% of what you're doing right now.
    In other words, take a look at 2023 and figure out what things gave you the least ROI. What things took the most of your resources and returned anything less than "worth it".

    That's the prep work...Listen to get my 5-step plan.
    Key Insights
    ​Stop doing the things that don't produce a good return on your time and efforts ​Plan Your Year ​Plan your time off (commit!)   ​Plan for the things you can't control (holidays, etc.) ​Plan your content schedule ​Plan your promotional schedule ​Setup accountability and guidance for you as the leader (e.g. a coach or mentor) Links

    The Magic Word That Will Change Your Life

    The Magic Word That Will Change Your Life

    In this week's episode, I'm talking about a single, magic word that has the power to reduce your stress and give you more time to do the things that matter to you.

    What is this "Magic Word" ?

    "No"

    People seem to have no issue asking for our time, our attention, our money, etc. But for some reason, we often feel bad about saying no. It makes us feel like we're not doing our part, or being negative, or a bad person. "No" is just a response. It's neither good nor bad, but learning to use it can have a huge impact on your life.

    Key Insights
    ​Saying "no" doesn't mean you're a negative person with a negative attitude...it's just a response ​No need to make up excuses. This is a complete sentence: "No." ​Using the word "because" in your response can lead to less pushback ​Saying No to things you don't want to do gives you more time to say yes to the things you do want to do

Such Rich Content

Glad to hear Sean back on the podcast. I think it was A TON to glean from this latest episode. 2020 was such a monumental year for a lot of reasons but it’s so unique and interesting to hear the navigation from a local stores perspective. Definitely some things to ponder on but this was another awesome and rich episode!
