Every week we have conversations with the most successful people in our network. We learn their stories and the lessons learned before diving in and getting the real "meat." Every single show has actionable takeaways that listeners can implement in their own life or business. We focus on topics around traffic, brand awareness, wealth growth, podcasting, marketing automation, mindset, lifestyle, and business systematization but have been known to go pretty "off script" from time to time to discuss a wide variety of topics to help people improve their lives. We describe our show as "A Life Improvement Podcasting Masquerading As A Business Podcast."

    Russ Henneberry - How To Create A Newsletter Business Using Curated Content

    Russ Henneberry - How To Create A Newsletter Business Using Curated Content

    This episode is one of those blueprint episodes where once you grab the notes and listen through, you’ll have a business model that you could implement either as a brand new one or model in your own niche if you want.  We’re talking with Russ Henneberry, who is the founder of The Clikk.com, a newsletter business with awesome open rates. Listen in as he gives us the play by play that goes into his business and how he’s got his advertising dialed in so he does not need a sales team. Russ has a huge history of content marketing in general and has worked for some really large companies doing a lot of interesting things. 
    With his newsletter, he sends out a daily email to digital business owners and is able to monetize it through affiliate marketing and sponsorships. Most of his content is essentially curated that he finds around the web that is relevant to his subscribers. We really go into a lot of topics such as how to get better open rates with your emails, how to get better deliverability so they actually make it to the inbox as well as how Russ is able to locate the content to curate.  When you’re done, get some more advice about success with newsletters from our conversations with Doberman Dan and MaryEllen Tribby. 
    “Every business has a couple of metrics that really need to be watched daily. And for us, open rate is that so it comes out that my advertisers are happy with the number of clicks they're getting simply because we're getting enough opens.” - Russ Henneberry
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    Three different monetization models and how to make money from each one How to charge CPM’s for your advertisers How to get referrals for lead generation Various ways to use contests in your marketing for viral shares Tips on improving your email marketing How to use this method in your own business model Proven examples of email headlines to get yours opened When to segment your list and how to clean it up How to re-engage those who haven’t opened up emails in a while And much, much more!

    Susie Moore - Stop Seeking Approval And Attain True Self-Confidence

    Susie Moore - Stop Seeking Approval And Attain True Self-Confidence

    We loved speaking with Susie Moore, who has such fun energy, and today we talk about her recently released book, called Stop Checking Your Likes. Susie also runs a media company and has been on Oprah and the Today Show. Listen in as she breaks down all these limiting beliefs that a lot of us carry around unknowingly, and has some very simple ideas on how to deal with that because it’s not serving you. 
    We talk about what it means to “stop checking your likes” as it's something that holds a lot of people back from growing their business since they are scared of what people might think of what they're doing, as the need for approval stops a lot of people from having those necessary conversations. We also touch on some PR strategies and some golden nuggets on how to get in touch with the right people in the media. After the show, make sure to listen to our previous episodes with Kamal Ravikant and Craig Ballantyne, which will give you even more insight on mindset, and how to focus more on yourself while you move towards your goals.
    “Are we giving ourselves credit? Are we giving ourselves compassion? are we allowing things to be easy? I think this is the key to everything becoming far simpler in our lives and allowing us to be more successful” - Susie Moore
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    How to get over the need for approval from others Why it’s a good thing to admit to not being the expert Ways to step away from constantly needing social media gratification How to find your customer avatar Ways to promote yourself using the power of the media Moving forward in your business via course correction and losing products that don’t serve you  The imposter syndrome concept and how to use it to your advantage How to break down barriers that are limiting your potential And much, much more!

    David Wood - A Simple Framework For Handling Tough Conversations

    David Wood - A Simple Framework For Handling Tough Conversations

    David Wood has an interesting background, from working with various businesses to coaching sessions with prisoners and wardens in maximum security prisons. He is using the same mechanism across the board, and by listening to today’s show, you’ll have the opportunity to get it for free. You’ll also hear us doing this in a role play fashion with a real scenario that we had in our business recently.  
    In this episode, we discuss ways to have difficult conversations with people that we know we need to speak with and how to approach having them, where you may be anxious or worked up about it ahead of time. If you follow this framework, then you really shouldn’t get too worked up, as it becomes a process, not a personal emotional thing. You’ll also realize that we are in our heads a lot, and anxiety pops up as we think of things that we consider to be reality, but this process will help to bring out a logical process where you’ll uncover what to do. It’ll work for your employees, your boss, your spouse, etc. and it’s a process about having tough conversations no matter who you are talking to. If this episode helps in ways to shift your own mindset around dealing with difficult situations, be sure to check out our episodes with Dr. Steve Rudens and David Allen as well.
    “The last 25 years have been about the other stuff. It's about telling the truth….learning to actually like myself more has been the journey.” - David Wood
    Some Topics We Discussed Include:
    How to approach conversations you don’t want to have with your spouse, boss, employee, business partner, etc.  How to deal with the “mouse in the room” (and it’s not by getting a cat!) How David helps his clients like themselves so they can love themselves more The tendency to gloss over feeling contracted and how to bring that to light What’s it like running this model in a maximum security prison Lots of examples on what to say when you are trying to begin the conversation Why just filling out the worksheet can reveal some a-ha moments and win over ego How this method works with our own real life example  And much, much more!
