EP 54: David Mammano on Letting Go to Find Opportunities, Building a Career Based on Joy, and Always Starting With The Right Intentions
Show Your Business Who's Boss
Entrepreneurs can be a pretty Type A bunch. But what if letting go–even just a little–lets in your next big thing? Are there opportunities right in front of you that you don’t dare explore? Sometimes we, and I definitely mean me too, can be so myopic in our thinking that our business needs to look a certain way, that we miss the opportunities right in front of us. On today’s episode I’ve got serial entrepreneur and badass business owner, David Mamanno. David is a 7-time business owner who now helps others achieve their entrepreneurial dreams. He’s also the host of the Gonzo Experience podcast, the author of Crash & Learn, a three-time Inc. Magazine 5000 Growth Company winner, a TEDx speaker, an adjunct professor at the University of Rochester. He is also a big believer in being open to opportunities and making work a joy by taking the time to try new things in pursuit of finding your calling. Whether it’s stand up comedy, a networking and speakers group for local businesses or starting a podcast, even the paths and opportunities that didn’t end up being your calling are experiences and skills you can use. And David has done all of those things and more. Tune into this episode to hear: Why following your passion first and figuring out the money second might disappoint your parents, but can lead to more joy and more success How David still calls on his time taking comedy classes at Second City in Chicago in the work he does today How his next business idea practically fell in his lap and his best advice for how to find your next big idea How starting with integrity is the difference between grand idea and delusions of grandeur Learn more about David Mammano: DavidMammano.com Connect with David on LinkedIn Connect with David on Facebook The Gonzo Experience Podcast Watch David’s College Standup Set Learn more about Pia: No BS Agency Owners Free Facebook Group The Show Your Business Who's Boss Crash Course Start reading the first chapter of my book Piasilva.com Resources: *Crash and Learn: Lessons in Business*, David Mammano Email David at firstname.lastname@example.org for a free copy!

Episode 977: Turning a podcast into a business, with David Mammano
Content Monetization and a Passion for Podcasting What You Will Learn: How David’s career progressed from entrepreneur to coach and thought leader, and what new opportunities and setbacks he experienced along the way How the challenges David faced taught him important skills and key business lessons, and how he turned a love of podcasting into powerful content monetization Why focusing on helping others and adding value proved the key to David’s career pivot, and how David turned podcasting into his primary career focus How David has been able to monetize his podcast through sponsorships, and how he is rebranding and relaunching his podcast as “The Gonzo Experience” Why David was inspired to write his third and most recent book, “Crash and Learn: Lessons in Business” How in times of crisis such as the global pandemic, business leaders need to look for the opportunities and silver linings and work to avoid falling into negativity Why it is important to look for the lessons and the opportunity to learn when experiencing difficult situations and major setbacks Why David’s book “Crash and Learn” offers an opportunity to take the lessons David learned and apply them to your own challenges How David has learned to cut through the podcast noise and make his show stand out from the other 480,000 domestic podcasts Why the feedback David has received has often stemmed from people’s own internalized fears, and how he has pushed through and doubled down regardless Content Monetization and a Passion for Podcasting Can you turn your passion project into your only career focus? And if you do — will content monetization negatively impact your love for what you create, or can you keep loving what you do even when it becomes your primary job? Four-time returning guest David Mammano joins Onward Nation to discuss how he found his love for podcasting, and how he was able to chart a new career path with podcasting as his main focus — in spite of naysayers who tried to warn him away from it. And — he shares how going through difficult times can be a powerful teacher, if you look for the lessons and silver linings. Learning from the Hard Times David Mammano is no stranger to challenge, having once built a successful business before losing nearly everything. As the host of “The Gonzo Experience” podcast, David has spoken with many other business leaders who have shared their own stories of overcoming challenges and coming out the other side stronger and better positioned for success. These stories became the backbone of his book “Crash and Learn”, where David shows readers that we aren’t defined by our failures but by what lessons we learned from them. David collected the shared wisdom of his podcast guests to demonstrate that retaining optimism through difficult times is a crucial business skill, and that even the most difficult of experiences holds lessons we can draw from them that can only benefit us in the future. Content Monetization as a Business Strategy Speaking of David’s podcast “The Gonzo Experience”, during his interview David shared how he first discovered his passion for podcasting, and why he decided to make the difficult — and scary — decision to double down and make his podcast be his primary business focus. By focusing on helping others and adding value, David was able to attract an appreciative audience. The size of David’s growing audience opened up the opportunity to pursue content monetization through sponsorships to fund his work. Even though David had a number of people telling him that going all-in on podcasting was a mistake, he recognized that their words of caution stemmed not from concern for David but from their own fears. When he shut out the voices that were telling him he couldn’t do it — his own internal voice included — he was able to prove those voices wrong.
