I’m encouraging you today to take a break. Listen to hear what the new summer schedule is all about and why I’m doing it. Hint: it’s not all for my benefit. There’s homework here for you.

Josh will join me next time as we jump into the new show format to bring you better ideas that you can take action on right away.

Josh and I talk about how to make sure your target market still matches what you’re selling. If you’re finding the right clients aren’t finding you, it’s time to update.

Rob: Hi Justin, I’m placing my 1st business on hold to start another one, sort of a practice business of sorts. The issue is that I’m concerned that it might be considered a conflict of interest. I’m trying to set up an “About me” page under a pen name. The problem is that I won’t be able to use a picture of me. Do you think that would be an issue? Can you think of any other ideas that will help me give visitors a comfort level of who I am?

I’ll help you turn your ideas into a business that changes the world (and your bank account). Here’s how.

phoneThree things I know about business:

  1. Everyone needs a coach, mentor, or someone to ask and get answers
  2. Some need that person to be long term (6 months)
  3. Some only have a need for answers to short questions

I’ve dedicated the past seven years to long term relationships: spending anywhere from 30 days to 12 months or more to help my clients get ahead. You’ve never been able to get 30 minutes of my time but that all changes today.

A new platform has launched to make it easy for me to offer shorter calls and coaching sessions. Instead of booking six months of coaching or even a full hour, you can grab me for 15 minutes and get critical answers to your questions.

Grab your time with me now. I’m looking forward to talking.

coachradio-coverI’m back from the Love Does event in Seattle. I was hoping for a big break through, but there wasn’t one.

Sometimes we’re looking for break through and what we really need is follow through.

Want to do something? Stop praying.

Doing something so long that you’re afraid to let it go.

LiveNinja and Clarity are platforms Josh and I are both trying out. You can grab a few minutes through either service and talk with Josh or I.

  • How to make crowd funding successful

coachradio-cover

Today I’m recording a show before flying to Seattle. I’m attending an event with my wife and friends and honestly don’t know what it’s all about. Have you ever done that?

I’ve seen many people try to crowdfund the startup of a new business and unfortunately it’s rarely successful.

Differences between Kickstarter, Indiegogo and others.

Andy and his wife are running a campaign to fund their new business, Threaded Together Vintage Rentals, and has questions about raising money.

I took one month off because I wanted to make some wise decisions without wondering how I’d come across to an audience. Being in that position is never a good thing but one that many, more popular, celebrities are involved in every day.

Listen to hear why I’ve decided to stop working at The Exodus Road and why I’m working more closely with BombBomb.

Jesse: I could use some help with my blog, survivingthedayjob.com. It’s not yet a profitable business but that’s what I always intended to make it. I’ve spent the past year writing quantity and I’m now starting to writing quality.

My problem comes mostly in the form of finding my voice. I know if I can find that then I can start to retain viewers and maybe even grow. My other real problem is faceing fears. That one I’m working on.

I need a second opinion. When you read my stuff does it seem real or fake to you? What turns you off about the site and what’s one thing you like. I’m not looking to get cheered on. I already have enough family members telling me I’m awesome. I need a brutal reality check.

Stop listening to other experts for at least two week. Maybe even two months. It’s some of the best advice anyone has ever given me.

To be real, consider speaking your blog posts. As you listen to yourself talk, does it sound like you?

Ibrahim: I watched your studio tour video and I was overwhelmed with what I saw in that video, setting up my own radio station has always been my dream, I hope you wouldn’t mind if you advise me as to what to do? What I need and any advice so far as setting up ur own radio station is concerned.

Also I want to know, do you need a transmitter to broadcast ur shows?

You’ll Never Know

April 19, 2013 — 4 Comments

failure“You never quite know in business if what you are doing is the right or wrong thing.

Unfortunately, by the time you know the answer, someone has beaten you to it and you are out of business.” – Mark Cuban

So what do you do…give up?

I’ve pressed up against my share of possible failures the past few months and I’m here to say it never gets easier. All I know is to keep going, even at the risk of failure.

Will you give up or keep going?
