  • For a personal brand to work, you’ve got to be okay with the notion that even though you’re giving out free content, it may lead to zero monitorization on a micro level, but not in a macro environment
  • You’ve got to focus on being yourself if you want to create consistency in your business
  • Self-awareness is critical in finding success as an entrepreneur
  • Much, much more!

The fact is most entrepreneurs live check to check. Our guest for this episode, Mike Michalowicz wants to change all of that with his book: Profit First.

As you can guess from the title, he’s come up with a mind shifting concept of putting your profits before any other expense, or financial allotment in your business.

For those of you don’t know him, Mike is the bestselling author of such notable books as The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur and The Pumpkin Plan. His first book put him on the map, so to speak, and his second book solidified him as a thought leader in business and entrepreneurship.

Mike and I talk about the concept of prioritizing our profits and how to actually do it in your business, plus in a way that will set you up for success. We also talk traditional publishing vs. self-publishing. Even though I’ve known Mike for almost 4 years, I had no idea his first book was self-published - and that is one of the keys to successfully self-publishing: make it AS good as a traditionally-published book.

Mike and I also spend a lot of this episode talking about why 'profit first' is such an important mindset shift for anyone wanting to succeed in business today.

Most business owners and entrepreneurs will tell you their business is good, or great. But what no one is talking about, that big elephant in the room, as Mike puts it (which I love!), is that they are hoping and praying for that one big client to come along and completely alter the course of their business.

The reality for them - and for you - is that waiting for that one magic client isn’t necessary. By simply shifting your mindset to focusing on profits first, you can go beyond check to check and waiting for your one ideal client, to seeing substantial profits.

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • GAP accounting: what is it and why doesn't it work?
  • The one small step that will shift your mindset to focus on your profits first.
  • Reverse engineering profits: why this is key to your overall business success.
  • Some of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned in business.
  • Big question - who's the MOST important employee in your business?
  • Much, much more!

Rank #17: Creating a Marketing Funnel that Works, with John Lee Dumas

Podcast cover
Read more

Having the right marketing funnels in place can have an astronomical effect on the success of your business. But, developing a marketing funnel that moves people through the journey to conversion takes time and strategy.

So, who better to discuss marketing funnels than the expert, John Lee Dumas. John is the founder and host of the award-winning podcast, Entrepreneurs On Fire, where he delivers inspirational strategies to help fellow entrepreneurs live the life they’ve always dreamed of having.

John was the opening keynote speaker at last year’s Youpreneur Summit, where he inspired the audience to create profitable funnels for their business. His speech was so good that I thought… you know what? it would be a shame if that were the last time anyone ever heard it. So… this podcast episode is a little bit different. I’ve pulled the audio directly from last year’s keynote archives to share John’s fantastic keynote speech with you all.

In John’s speech, he shares everything you need to know about building a highly profitable marketing funnel that could lead to a multi-million-dollar business.

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • Your defining moment in life is the instant that motivates you to stand up, take action and discover your “true purpose”
  • If you don’t learn how to “funnel up” before “funneling down”, your marketing funnel will never work
  • A funnel is the journey that your avatar takes from the moment they first discover your brand until they become a client, customer or an evangelist
  • Build the initial momentum and get things going by niching down
  • Your “avatar” is your ideal customer – so make sure you know them inside and out!
  • You must have a content creation system in place to make sure you create content on a consistent level
  • If you created a great piece of content, get the most out of it by repurposing it
  • Don’t underestimate the power of a one-to-one conversation to grow your audience
  • Host live training sessions because sales happen on live webinars
  • Never hesitate to let people know about your offer because as an entrepreneur, you’re obligated to generate revenue
  • Much, much more!

Launches have always been one of my favorite parts of being an entrepreneur. Yes, there’s a lot of expectation and stress that can happen during the pre-launch phase but it’s also a time where you can play around with new launch strategies that can connect you with a brand new audience.  

If you do have a brand new product or service that you can’t wait to share with the world, it’s important to make sure you have all your ducks in a row before unveiling it to the world. First impressions matter, so you want to make sure you launch it right. 

This week, I break down four particular areas when it comes to launching: pre-testing your audience, the three elements you need to create when building buzz, a few of my own favorite launch strategies that I’ve used so far and what you can do after your product or service has finally been released.

There are lots of moving parts involved when it comes to a product launch which is why planning is essential from the get-go. Make sure you cover all the details (both big and small) early on so you can make sure you have a product launch that stays top of mind for everyone in your industry.

Essential learning points from this episode:


  • The different ways you can pre-test your audience to validate your business idea.
  • How you can counteract the mid-launch lull that happens to keep those sign-ups going.
  • How you can keep the momentum going after your launch your product or service.
  • The three ingredients to a successful launch: excitement, creating urgency and staying engaged with your audience.
  • Much, much more!
