If you follow the advice you find here, you'll soon find yourself with a product or service ready to present to the world and perhaps you even orchestrate a small launch for it.
Now, what if you do all this and get virtually no result? What if no one buys your minimum viable product, no one signs up to your launch list and you get no feedback from the market? Is it time to give up or are there other options?
Discover the answer in today's podcast episode...Continue reading
In the last post, I introduced the concept of Hustle Mode - a state of extreme focus that is necessary to get a new business off the ground quickly.
As was correctly pointed out by several commenters, while Hustle Mode is a great way to make a business successful, it's not a great way to live. If you're in Hustle Mode, your health, social life and perhaps even sanity are taking a hit.
What's worse, Hustle Mode will only get you so far and if you don't know how to successfully escape it again, you'll be stuck in entrepreneurial purgatory.
Watch the video below to learn when, why and how you need to leave the hustle behind.Continue reading
As an entrepreneur, you're attempting to do something almost magical: you're conjuring up a business out of nothing.
Unfortunately, there's a lot of inertia you will have to overcome before your new business takes off and this post is about the one thing you MUST do to make that happen...Continue reading
If one of the things you're pursuing with your business is personal freedom, this post is for you.
Many of us dream of living a location independent lifestyle and having the freedom to travel the world and see exotic and exciting places. Building a business is tough enough by itself, but growing a business while traveling? That presents a whole new layer of challenges.
Watch the video below to see my exact "work and travel" setup that I use to keep my productivity high while I'm on the road. Oh, and that includes a full video marketing setup...Continue reading
The end of the year approaches and as has become a tradition on this blog, I want to take a look back and tell you about the most valuable lessons I learnt in the last 12 months.
The year 2014 has been the craziest year I’ve experienced in business so far. By any number you could care to measure, it has been a very successful year and it has been a wild ride. Never before have I experienced so much change and so many things happening, all crammed into such a short time span.
Listen to the audio below to extract as much of the insights Paul and myself absorbed this year and make use of it for your own business:
Rob Cornish from Gain Higher Ground returns to our podcast to tell us about how he managed to take several months off (and travel the world), while his business still provides income.
The talk we have with him takes a surprising twist midway through and him, Paul and myself share some unusual but highly valuable insights.
If you do content marketing, I’m sure you’re all too familiar with the importance of writing “epic” content and delivering massive value in your blog posts, videos, podcasts and more. In pursuit of ever more awesome content, I ended up making a critical mistake – and you might be making it too.
Check out this short video to see what the mistake is and how to fix it:
Do you ever feel like your business is turning into a monster and trying to drown you in a flood of work? Ever felt overwhelmed with just too many tasks and too many things that need to get done?
As an entrepreneur, your answer might well be: “story of my life…”
In today’s quick video, I present a simple method that can clear the overwhelm. Warning: you might not like it (but it does work very well).
Did you know that there’s one single factor that you can look at to predict an individual’s future success with astonishing accuracy?
That means that if you asked me to predict how successful a starting entrepreneur will be, I’d only want (and need) to know one single thing about them.
I’ll tell you exactly what that factor is (and back it up with science). But first, let me show what it has to do with online videos.
The feeling of being stuck or treading water is a frustrating and very common one, among entrepreneurs. We’d all love to smoothly sail towards our goals and keep growing our businesses at a steady pace.
Unfortunately, this is rarely how it pans out in reality.
Watch the video below to see why you often experience plateaus in your business and how to break through them:
A few months ago, I sent out surveys to several groups of online marketers. My goal was to find out what the biggest problems and “sticking points” for online marketers were and part of the reason for that was that I wanted to find out if I could detect demand for a product or service I could provide. Quite surprisingly, the results showed that the number one biggest problem for most online marketers had nothing to do with online marketing.
