The title doesn’t really do justice …which is a fitting phrase, considering that John Lane (“Dr Music”), who has a Doctor of Musical Arts degree, uses his talents in percussion to spread awareness to causes such as the Innocence Project — which focuses on the wrongfully convicted — and Trigger his latest project, which deals with gun violence. Music at the end from Japanese Breakfast with Slide Tackle.

Do fewer things better with strategic startup consultant, John Lane
Most startups that die sudden deaths don’t starve, they drown. That means they’re running around like a chicken without its head, trying to do 4,000 things instead of focusing on the one thing that grows their business. And the same is true for solopreneurs, service-based companies, and most entrepreneurs who want to grow their business. When you do less things, you can focus on areas that actually move the needle forward. The problem is: It’s hard to get honest with yourself and your business. Entrepreneurs get trapped into thinking that doing more things leads to more success, but the opposite is true. In this episode, strategic startup consultant, John Lane joins me to reveal why doing fewer things better helps your business thrive. Show highlights include: How mortifying failures in “Startup World” gives you an unfair advantage with helping young businesses thrive (2:32) Why wasting thousands of dollars on a business coach is the most profitable investment you can make (especially if you’d rather throw a temper tantrum than hire a coach) (4:57) Scott Adam’s secret for eliminating negative self-talk and procrastinating on activities you know you should do (7:38) Why exercising every day is 10x easier than only doing it a few times per week (and how this applies to your business) (7:53) Why most entrepreneurs lowball their prices (and 5 words to add to your proposals to get paid what you’re worth) (11:34) 2 things to add to your monthly invoices that make your clients happy to pay your hefty fees (12:40) If you found a golden nugget of wisdom in this episode, share it on social media with the hashtag #ResultsLeaderFM to help spread the word.
