Rank #6: [Ep 47] 5 Success Habits We're Hooked On

Podcast cover
Read more

If there is one thing that I've learned over the last 3 years of running a business—or more so had hammered into my brain— it's that if you want to be successful with your online adventures... If you truly want to kick your 9-to-5 to the curb and create that lifestyle of freedom you daydream of while sitting at work... If you want to call the shots in your own life... Then you HAVE to make success a habit. I know, it sounds weird. I mean, how can success be a "habit"? But if you take a close look at the different habits successful people abide by, you'll see there is a common thread. Things like religious exercise routines, controlling their mindset, waking up early, surrounding themselves with other successful people, setting boundaries (and sticking to them!), and bouncing back quickly after a failure. Those are all habits and if you're itching to create success on your own terms, then you need to start incorporating some into your daily life. And if your mind is currently cycling through the many go-to excuses we alllll tend to resort to when considering making a positive change in our life, think of this... What would you rather have: A life that lights you up inside and makes you excited to get up in the morning, but requires some legwork (or ab work...depends on what day it is at the gym *wink*) OR a life that is safe and comfortable and let's be real...kinda boring! If you're giving the latter a big ol' thumbs down then you are going to dig today's episode, because we are breaking down the 5 biggest success habits that are currently rocking our whole damn world!

Rank #16: [EP 03] Couple Spotlight with Mish and Rob from MakingItAnywhere.com

Podcast cover
Read more

I'm going to be honest for a moment. When Josh and I started working together, we felt like we were the only couple out there doing the entrepreneurial thing together.

We felt very out of place in Toronto.

After packing our bags and moving to Thailand, things got a bit easier because we were surrounded by so many like-minded people. We were still craving that couple connection though. You know what I mean...that couple you just jive with, can talk for hours with, laugh with, be honest with, and share the struggles with.

About a year ago I stumbled across UK couple Mish and Rob from MakingItAnywhere.com. Now, these two have a wickedly successful business - or should I say businesses; they have 5! - and have an incredible story.

Rank #17: [EP 06] 5 Essential Things Every Online Business Needs

Podcast cover
Read more

I'm not going to lie, when Josh and I started out with our first affiliate site we made a LOT of mistakes: From the theme we used for our website to our reluctance to create a newsletter, the lack of acohesive "voice" to shoddy promotion strategies, we made nearly every single mistake you could make with that one little website.

Fast-forward to today and it is one of our biggest and most active websites in our arsenal, and we are incredibly grateful to have stumbled along and made a whole slew of mistakes right up front.

Why?

Because it allowed us to fail fast, and learn even faster. I mean, if it wasn't for those (at the time) humiliating slip ups we would never know what we know today.

We also started looking for different resources that could help finesse our online business, and realized there are 5 essential elements that every single online business needs no matter what industry you're in or monetization model you use.

"It will always keep changing and evolving. Like, what you start out with will never be what you end up with." - Jill
