    Behind the Scenes: A Unique Way to Work With Your Customers (And I Love It)

    Behind the Scenes: A Unique Way to Work With Your Customers (And I Love It)

    In 2022, I added a whole new revenue model to my business. I want to share it with you in this episode of Art of Online Business because it might be something that you can do too. 


    Sometimes the right way of living is not yet known to you until you say yes to something or decide to try something new. That could open up a whole new avenue in your business or your life. 


    At the beginning of 2022, I had no idea that I would discover this new business model and let alone add it to my business or even enjoy it for that matter. I tried something new and now I love this business model. 


    The business model I’m sharing today is called revenue share deals. If you want to learn more about partnering with me, send an email to me at rick@rickmulready.com. 


    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    What a revenue share partnership isHow this type of partnership worksHow I choose who to partner with for revenue share dealsWhy I love this business model so much

    The Real Cost of Business Burnout, with Jude Charles

    Are you experiencing business burnout? 


    Burnout has become a buzzword lately in the business world, but it is very real and it can sneak up on you. It’s very common but it just doesn’t get talked about enough. So in this episode of Art of Online Business, I sat down with Jude Charles to talk about business burnout and how Jude changed his business and life due to his experience.

    Jude is the author of Dramatic Demonstration. This book is a roadmap that teaches you how to dig deep to find compelling stories that no one else knows, and then leverage those stories to grow your business.


    Jude’s mission is to lead and empower entrepreneurs to have relentless, unwavering courage.


    I have experienced burnout multiple times since I have been in business, so I know what it’s like. As entrepreneurs, we have to take breaks. It’s imperative for our mental health and so that we don’t forget who we are outside of work. 


    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    What happened when Jude went through burnoutWhy you can’t wrap your identity up in your workHow he worked through his identity crisisThe symptoms of burnout that Jude experiencedKnowing when enough is enoughThe importance of finding other ways to win

    As business owners, there will inevitably be a time when something unexpected comes up and we have to figure out a solution. The problem is that when we are coming up with solutions from a fear-based or scarcity-based mindset, our ideas aren’t going to be very good.

    We have all been there at some point. Being prepared for whatever comes with these ideas will help you get through it when times get hard.

    How to Create a Business That Generates Revenue While You Nap, with Seemi Abdullah | an Oct 2021 Classic

    How to Create a Business That Generates Revenue While You Nap, with Seemi Abdullah | an Oct 2021 Classic

    Wouldn’t you like to have a business that generates revenue while you sleep? What about when you’re taking a nap in the middle of the day? That sounds pretty great to me!


    Seemi Abdullah has structured her business to allow her to do just that, so she is joining me to break down how.


    Seemi and I get into how she has structured her business and the journey she has been on to get to where she is now, how she leverages revenue share deals, how the pandemic changed her business, why she hired an OBM first, and a whole lot more. 


    Seemi Abdullah is the founder of TrilliumMontessori.org. She has over 20 years of experience in Montessori as a teacher and school administrator and owner and now works with other Montessori experts to provide professional development and curriculum resources to Montessori professionals around the world.


    Regardless if you are in the teaching space or not, I want you to listen closely to this episode because there are a lot of great takeaways throughout.


    In this episode you’ll Learn: 


    Mindset shifts that take place throughout entrepreneurshipWhat to consider when deciding who to hire and whenThe benefit of hiring an OBM firstHow to figure out what to get off of your plateWhy it's so important to have clean systems before you hand them overTips for streamlining your “busy season”


    I want to reiterate that Seemi has intentionally set up her business so she can take naps. That is awesome! Money still comes in while she’s sleeping - even in the middle of the day! This can be true for you too.


    I hope you enjoyed hearing the progression of Seemi’s business as well as what is ahead for her. I want you to remember an important lesson from this episode: you cannot be creative and grow your business if you are too caught up in the day-to-day tasks in your business. This is something that Seemi learned throughout her journey and it is something that I want you to think about.

Love the coaching insight segment!

The Art of Online Buisness was an already great podcast but now adding contributors to the episodes makes it even better. Caitlin Mitchell putting an emphasis on your mission statement really hits home. I've been part of many companies and I have had a better experience working for a company with a mission statement makes me want to be part of the brand more.
