    #129: The Impossible List

    #129: The Impossible List

    It’s hard to pick between more than one priority when you believe in each of them.  In a perfect world you can delegate things.  Bring in more people and accomplish more than you can do alone.  Unfortunately there are things that you just can’t delegate.  Some things are yours and yours alone.  This podcast is one of those things for me.  I get plenty of help with the editing and the promotion but I’m the one on camera.  As summer approaches and I look at all the things on my plate I have to make some hard choices.  Listen to this episode to hear how I look at this pod and the amount of my time it consumes.

    #128: Speak in Flow owner, Melinda Lee.

    Melinda Lee realized that her entire family line was full of silenced women. That realization led her to follow a calling as a communications and presentation coach.  Melinda saw that a lot of the challenges we all have to clear communication and public speaking were things that had nothing to do with memorizing the words.  In this interview we talk about dealing with “the inner critic”, how our bodies are living in the past, and the special needs that entrepreneurs have for presentation skills.  Melinda also shares some practical tips for public speaking that include what footwear you should have on.

    #127: Liz Wilcox makes your emails better.

    Email is still the best way to market to your audience.  It builds familiarity, establishes authority and trust.  It can also be horribly misused and cause a lot of ill will when done wrong.  This week I talk to Liz Wilcox who teaches online business owners how to make email genuinely effective.  Liz shares how to build a great welcome series.  Explains why we should stop using the word “copy” and shows me that I’ve been making email much too complicated.  This talk was a big help to me and I hope it saves you as much time as it’s saving me.

    #126: Nathan Hirsch, Founder of AccountsBalance.com

    Nathan Hirsch runs a bunch of companies. In college he bought and sold textbooks until the school hit him with a cease and desist order.  Then he became a drop-shipper and sold millions of dollars of baby products. Later he and a partner would sell their company and walk away with life-changing money. So is he relaxing? Nope. Today he has a company that teaches small business owners how to hire, train, and use VAs and freelancers and another pair of companies that provide bookkeeping services to digital businesses.  Nathan talks about how quickly he’s been able to get out of the day-to-day in his companies, how good SOPs and solid books set him up for a stunningly fast sale, and why he isn’t just sailing around the world in a yacht these days.

    #125: Delegation "HOW-TOs"

    #125: Delegation "HOW-TOs"

    Delegation is one of my most talked about subjects here on the pod.  There's a good reason for that; I’ve spent a lot of time and energy thinking about it and building practices I can rely on to delegate effectively.  The other thing is that when you run an agency you’re essentially a middleman between the delegation your clients use you for and the things you delegate to your team.
     
    In this episode I break down some best practices on delegation.  Things you should be thinking about from the moment you want to hand something off, to the way you can build practices to make the entire experience repeatable with a minimum of fuss.  
     
    As always, please take a moment and give the show a review.  It makes a big difference.

    #124: Lydia Lee- This is How You Reinvent Yourself

    #124: Lydia Lee- This is How You Reinvent Yourself

    What do you do when you have a breakdown after working for a tyrant of a boss… but the boss is you?  That happened to this week’s guest Lydia Lee, who we spoke to in Bali where she spends half her year. It turns out that a breakdown like that is a real wake up call.  Now Lydia coaches mid-career professionals who are looking for something different from the rest of their work life.
     
    This is a great conversation about building the work life you want to live with; not a bigger career or a smaller career, just the right one for you.  We talk about entrepreneurship, delegating work, running a 1-person company, who to work with and how to repell the kinds of people you want to avoid.
     
    More than anything we talk about being deliberate with the choices you make about you’re work life. Consciously or unconsciously you’ll make a lot of choices and the quality of those choices will impact everything from your compensation to where you live to your health.

    33:45- Follow Deep Interests NOT Passion
    37:40- Right… for right now.
    45:16- Attract the right people. Repel the right people.

Every Entrepreneur NEEDS to Listen!

Kelly is amazing, the variety of guests she invites onto her podcast is truly a gift for every entrepreneur out there. Every aspect of being an entrepreneur is covered in the episodes, even the challenges we face. This podcast isn’t something you just “listen” to, it’s something you learn from, and come back to over, and over again!
