- Competing with current employer
- Technology for social website
I start this show by talking about my decision to close Need a Topic and end recording shows for No More Mondays. It was a sad decision to make, but one that needed to happen so I could focus on larger projects.
Paul: Do you have any experience with wordpress plugins for the Amazon Affiliate program? Only about 33% of my readers are from the US. Therefore, I’d like something that I can specify the recommended ISBN and that works properly with the Amazon Store for the reader’s locale. Thanks for a fine podcast and thanks in advance for any advice you have.
Eric: Hi, Justin. I’m trying to get my coaching/consulting business started, helping small businesses work with the State of Florida. I have worked for the state for the past 8 years and definitely have insight to provide. I currently work for the state’s eProcurement system, where vendors register and get potential business opportunities. I know there is a little cross-over (or conflict) in these roles, but the state is not willing to fund this type of training. I want provide my knowledge about working with the state for free as bridge to get paying clients for marketing and process improvement. In your opinion, am I putting myself in a bad position because some of my day job roles I would be blogging about, but as myself and not as an employee of the state?
Be sure to run your ideas by your employer. In a government job, you might want to get their response in writing.
Brad: I want to create a website to accompany the financial class I’ve written. The site would include forums and allow people that have gone through the class to socialize. It would also be a way to obtain additional forms used in the class, maybe an FAQ, but mostly be a place to get more information. The site would be for present and past class participants. I want a solution that is ready for me to use; I would just need to customize to fit my class. Do you have any suggestions or recommendations for what I describe?
I’ll help you turn your ideas into a business that changes the world (and your bank account). Here’s how.
