    14. Blake Binns - Actionable Advice For The Hard Working Entrepreneur

    In episode 13 of the Wicked Creative Collective Ash and Joe were joined by Blake Binns, Founder of Good Advice Coaching and the Good Advice Podcast. This episode is jam packed with actionable advice for the hard working entrepreneur.

    Through Good Advice, Blake Binns has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs scale their businesses to achieve their first 1,000 raving fans. This entire idea is based on the premise that a business doesn’t need millions of customers to be successful. Instead, a business only needs 1,000 raving fans who are highly committed, engaged, and loyal to the brand.

    Blake has spent countless hours in conversation with business owners from around the world, asking the hard questions about the future of their businesses. He knows the struggles, and uncertainty that entrepreneurs face and in episode 13 he was willing to share some core principles with the WCC audience.

    In this episode we talk about the common pitfalls that entrepreneurs can get caught up in during the early years of business. Blake stresses the importance of creating small feedback loops within your life in order to RUN with the good ideas and scrap the bad ones. *The secret here is putting your business to the “mom test”.

    We also get the opportunity to chat about the seductive allure of being an entrepreneur and what can really set you apart and position you for success.

    13: Talking Business, Family, Life & Music With Matt Gagnon

    Ash and Joe welcome Mindset Coach, Matt Gagnon to the Wicked Creative Collective.  Matt has had a major influence on Joe and his journey on LinkedIn. Matt's tips and tricks were invaluable to him navigating the new content centric landscape and building his personal brand. 

    On this episode, the Collective discusses how they are adapting to "quarantine life"  around their businesses/careers, mental health and family lives. They stress how important it is to experience your emotions good and bad and not to bury them during these crazy times.  You need to be allowed to feel, process & grow.

    We may be physically apart but with technology we are never socially distant.

    They end the episode talking about their love for vinyl and music.  Who knew Ash was a big audiophile!

    Hope you enjoy this incredible conversation.
