    Danielle Zarcaro Check-In – What’s New with the Biz, WordPress & Offering Site Audits!

    Danielle Zarcaro Check-In – What’s New with the Biz, WordPress & Offering Site Audits!

    Danielle’s back for a 3rd episode! In this one, we check in to see how her web development business is going and to talk WordPress shop. Of course, that’s how we started. Both of us are pretty passionate about WordPress so it’s natural for us to go there. 🙂

    We talked about the current state of WordPress, blocks and full-site editing (FSE themes). I was happy to hear she is ready to build her first FSE theme! We also talked about how WordPress has changed, the eco-system, the different ways to build and how it’s gotten better. Danielle is happy we are leaving the stage of ‘what has changed’ to the ‘what are they adding’ stage of WordPress' evolution.

    After that we caught up on how her web development business is going. She talks about her new business name, why she calls the business a ‘studio’ and what new things she’s been offering for services. It was a lot fun catching up.. an interesting conversation. Especially for those that love WordPress. Enjoy!

    Matt Campbell - His Journey & Building a Site that Attracts 4 Million Visitors a Year

    Matt Campbell - His Journey & Building a Site that Attracts 4 Million Visitors a Year

    In this episode Matt’s joined by Matt Campbell. We dig deep into his journey building a wedding site that enjoys 4 million visitors a year due to use SEO & Content Efforts. It’s not by accident either. As you listen, you realize he’s doing exactly what he was cut out to do.

    Matt’s love for music led him straight into a career as a DJ early in life. And like many of us, life happened, he got married and he found himself moving to Las Vegas and doing something entirely different; working for someone else.. until that entrepreneurial itch kicked in and he launched into something that again reunited him with his love for music. He built a wedding website.

    The site itself started out great, but as many that depend on SEO have experienced, Google made changes that dramatically affected his traffic and revenue.. but, one of the things that’s amazing about this story is it didn’t end there. He didn’t give up, learned more about his craft and built it back better. It’s a GREAT comeback story.

    If you are interested in or depend on SEO, this is the episode for you. ENJOY!

    Matt’s Influences.. How He Keeps Building. I Dare You & the Art of Commitment

    Matt’s Influences.. How He Keeps Building. I Dare You & the Art of Commitment

    On this solo episode, Matt dives deep into what influences him.  The key is what shaped his mindset, attitude and stick to it’ness can be found back in his early 20s (3 decades ago).  In those days he was one of those young people that were lost, mad at the world, and just wanted to have fun -- and be an artist.  But it wasn’t easy and it wasn’t playing out like he’d envisioned or hoped.

    But he had something in him… something drove him to look for those answers to solve the problem.  And it all started with a visit to a local bookstore.  There he saw a golden book sitting on the shelf that said something about you could grow rich.. thinking.  That book would be the first of many books and audio tapes that would over time remap his mind to become more positive and resilient.

    Through sharing his story he lands on some lessons that can be applied by you or anyone.  Some advice that if you’re ready for it, could change your life or business.  If you’re struggling, this could be an important listen!  Enjoy!

    Joe Matz - 18 Yrs building businesses in Italy & Brazil, Becoming a Business Coach Back Here in the US

    Joe Matz - 18 Yrs building businesses in Italy & Brazil, Becoming a Business Coach Back Here in the US

    Today I’m joined by Joe Matz. Over the last 30 years Joe has run and owned a variety of businesses. From restaurants to schools. But what’s most interesting is he’s done that in 3 different countries! He spent years in Italy (twice), years in Brazil and back here in the United States.

    One of his big strengths is going into business knowing literally nothing.. not even the language. He had to learn these languages on the fly! He’s taken all his knowledge and experience and now coaches people to help them start over and find their ‘thing’ that sets they apart.

    He’s a master at guiding people and creating a roadmap to find what they are uniquely suited for, they can differentiate themselves with and want to do. There’s gold in this episode.. Enjoy!!

    Doland White (Sadie Hawkins Episode) – Interviews Matt about HIS Business!

    Matt is joined by.. I mean, Doland is joined by Matt Levenhagen! What? Doland had this great idea to do a Sadie Hawkins episode.. but instead of the girls asking the boys to the dance, Doland turns the tables and interviews Matt about his business. It was a lot of fun!

    So we talk about how I ended up doing what I do. Why did I decide to start an agency? We talk a LOT about ‘truth’ in business. How sacred it is and how it’s shaped how I approach just about everything now. We dive into a variety of stories from my past that influences me today.

    We end the episode with Doland posing the question, “What pisses you off?” And then talk a little bit about how I’m developing the team and how I look at that. Good stuff! Hope you can join us for a listen!
