I often get some form of this question... "Is 58 too late to ____?" The number is arbitrary and this line of questioning can go on and on... Is it too late to start a business? Is it too late to build a brand? Is it too late to ...whatever. This week, I'm giving you my best answer to all of those questions.
People change when the pain of not changing feels more real than the difficulty of making the change. This is why 97% of people fail with New Year's Resolutions. The pain of not eating the pie seems more real than the pain of future health problems.
Building your business and your brand requires a particular set of skills. I want to talk about those skills (one in particular), but also issue a reminder about your other brand...the one built by others. Your shadow brand. What is it, and how do you manage it?
"People Pleasing" is NOT the way to build a brand. You might build a BIG list that way, but you won't build a QUALITY one. Your list, your followers, your subscribers...They need to know the real you if you want to build a connection. My guest this week is known as "the People Displeaser" (a.k.a. Nick Pollard), and he has done exactly that.
This week, we review the fundamental differences between marketing and selling, and how to properly execute both. Plus, I introduce you to two of my students, Jason and Melanie Crane. We'll talk about their entrepreneurial journey as a husband and wife team, their challenges, and successes.
A lot of people are asking this question when it comes to "Content Marketing": How much is too much? At what point do you saturate your readers, listeners and viewers with so much knowledge that they are no longer interested in buying what you're selling? In this week's episode, I'll give you a solid answer to that question.
This week I'll explain how creating your own YouTube podcast can establish your authority, credibility, and unique Personal Brand to attract new and better clients. It's not as hard as you think, and NOW is the time to do it.
In this economic reality, you must bring your A-Game when it comes to marketing. No more outdated websites...No more ignoring your "Shadow Brand", or reputation on social media. This week, we're talking about how my son and I are marketing the local coffee shop we co-own together, Revel 77.
This week, I'm encouraging you to start your 1-Person business. AI has made it possible for 1 person to function as though they had a team of 10 people or more. Add this to the power of "The Great Leveler", and there are no more excuses.
I teach thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and business owners how to write the words that sell their products, services, and ideas.
