I have been listening to the Fizzle show for almost a year now and cannot be more thankful. I have some weeks where I listen to an episode a day in between clients because the past episodes are still just as informative as the current. (I do personal training + have an online coaching business) I will say that I’ll miss Chase as a regular, especially his voice where he sounds like Coach Steve from Big Mouth (mainly in past episodes before big mouth even came out...), but I am excited for the new format of the show and it’s focus on fizzle member questions - which I joined recently and need to get on more often! Thanks guys. Keep it up!

Awesome Show!!

Shownotes for this episode: http://fizzleshow.com/328

The audience we aim to capture and the potential clients we go after are ultimately what make a business stay afloat or sink, without an audience you are not really an entrepreneur, right? So how do we find that particular section of the market that is right for us? How wide or narrow should we cast our nets and what are the indicators we can follow in this regard?

In this episode we break down the battle for your products; how niche is too niche and how general is just way too general. We pull apart the considerations that go into shooting for the stars and an audience, emphasizing how this process evolves and changes over time!

Today on the show we are joined by Justin Jackson, old friend, host of the Build Your SaaS Podcast and cofounder of Transistor! Our special guest shares his expertise in the space, unpacking how he learned the value and dangers of aiming for specific sections of the market and how the internet makes reaching anyone possible.

We also talk about the personality of your product, why no matter how good your idea and research is you always have to build a great product and the inability of humans to reliably predict their future actions when asked.

For all this great stuff, be sure to join on for this episode of the Fizzle Show!

It wasn't easy for him (wait till the bit about his panic at the Mexican border) but it completely changed his path, expanding his perspective about where he wanted to go with his career (and life).  This episode is a great introduction to Corbett, narrating how he graduated from a burnt out consultant to an electrified, successful and celebrated blogger and business builder.

Rank #7: Episode 198: How to Become Successful, Seriously (FS198)

Podcast cover
Read more

Might sound crazy, but in this podcast we literally teach you how to be successful. Simple as that. You want to become successful. You want to make headway towards your goal. You want to feel inspired and insightful about the work you do. You want to live life on your terms, employ your own damn self, define your own lifestyle. In this podcast we teach you — as I said — *literally* how to do that… how to get successful. It’s a deep dive into what we mean when we say “successful,” how that word bamboozles us, hoodwinks us and we lose touch with the very thing that’s going to contribute most to genuine success in our lives. BTW, this is not, like, some “The Secret” stuff or some pie-in-the-sky power of positivity… it’s cold hard empiricism and experience, but with real heart. You’re gonna like it. Make a cup of tea or coffee, invest an hour now in real, lasting success, and let’s dig in. Show Notes: Fizzleshow.co/198

One of the things we hear most often is that people want CLARITY in order to get started.

They feel overwhelmed and murky, like they would totally get started if only they knew what to DO! Maybe you feel like you need answers before you begin, because you have to get this right.

Today, we are flipping that. I know you think you need CLARITY in order to take ACTION.

But today, we're out to prove that CLARITY comes from ACTION.

Perhaps the very best part is that you don't have to buy anything to start doing this. Not from us, not from any other marketing wizards on the internet (and please don't trust anyone who tells you otherwise.)

As you're going to hear in today's real life stories, you just need an internet connection and some conversation in order to make seriously meaningful progress.

Podcast cover

Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.co/323

How do you hold onto the energy and excitement of the early stages of your business? How do you sustain this “freshness” over the long run?

Maybe you're lost and feel stuck before you've even begun...

Either way, you need direction! And this direction is made up of two very important things:

  1. We want you to find exactly what your business is talking about as soon as possible!
  2. Just as important is who you’re talking to.

These two pillars, your message and your audience, are really at the heart of any business but are especially the guiding lights in the beginning. Without them you will almost definitely be lost at sea!

In this episode we embark on part two of the roadmap series and we are delving into the nerves and excitement that accompany getting serious in following your entrepreneurial dreams. This combination of feelings, we find, is so common for a lot of us; as we see the possibilities they can also be daunting.

This episode can help you move through these waters and not get stuck in paralysis!

We also talk about using your own experience and questions to guide your work, the 80% confidence rule and finding the one person that your business is serving. So for all this and more, join us we do it all!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • The universality of figuring out what you are saying and who you are saying it to. [0:06:18.4]
  • Nerves, excitement and possibility when you are just starting out. [0:09:01.2]
  • Common hurdles and sticking points for choosing and moving forward. [0:11:34.6]
  • Ideal avatars and other time traps standing in your way. [0:15:51.4]
  • Why social media is misleading. [0:21:01.8]
  • Simplifying the difficult task of selling to an audience. [0:25:25.3]
  • Tilling your business soil and producing a great client base. [0:29:29.1]
  • Staying flexible for iteration and growth over time. [0:36:28.6]
  • The next best step and finding your sharing medium. [0:44:40.3]
  • Growing your topic, product and your service ideas from your audience. [0:51:50.8]
  • Taking the pressure off and channeling the energy of an Italian restaurant. [0:54:22.5]

Podcast cover

As indie entrepreneurs, sometimes all it takes is a little travel break to remind us why we started our business in the first place.

Travel is amazing for inspiration and perspective.

As indie entrepreneurs it would be terrible to make a business that doesn’t allow you to travel.

Just think about that! You put all this work in to get your business WORKING.

  • Topic we care about… check.
  • Validated unique selling proposition… check.
  • Growth channel setup… check.
  • Minimum viable product tested… check.

(BTW, all those stages above are taken from our small business roadmap training. If you’re somewhere in that process, it’s definitely worth checking into.)

You do ALL that work just to create yourself into a prison you can never take a break from!? That’d be terrible!

But it happens all the time. And it can happen to any of us if we’re not careful.

So, in this quick article (and, more importantly, the super thorough podcast episode that goes with it) that’s what I want to help you figure out:

How can we setup a modern indie business so we can travel and live with flexibility?

Rank #15: Episode 237: You Don’t Lack Discipline, You Lack Motivation. There’s a Difference (FS237)

Podcast cover
Read more

As indie entrepreneurs we live and die by the execution of our ideas. Without the right focus and motivation, discipline alone won’t save you.

I find it’s very common for creatives and business builders to feel they lack discipline. We think if we had more discipline then we’d be making more progress on our idea.

I don’t agree. You don’t lack discipline, you lack motivation. You lack the internal drive, the clarity and focus of desire, that would make being disciplined almost easy.

As I said before, us indie biz people live and die off the ideas we execute. Not the ideas we capture in our Moleskine notebooks, but the ideas we execute.

And if you’ve got issue with motivation (or discipline, if you insist), then you’ve got big problems with execution.

But here’s what I believe: you deserve to bring your idea to life. You deserve it. You’re not sitting on your ass doing NOTHING; you’re doing things to make it happen… it just sometimes feels like, you know, you don’t do enough, you couldn’t do enough, you’re not enough and you’re never enough.

Again, that’s all false. You just haven’t learned how to turn on motivation and channel it at whatever project you want.

http://fizzleshow.co/113 - Mary is in a tight spot. After growing her audience, keeping them engaged, and making her product, she's realized sales are not what she thought they would be. In this episode we sort of virtually consult Mary about her business, developing ideas for her and anyone else in a similar situation, handling stuff like: - Doing back of the napkin math to see how much of anything you need to sell to pay your bills. - Lots of candid conversation about how we view traffic and conversion. - How to develop ideas for "what's next" strategies. - How to discover debilitating expectations (and correct them). Have you ever had to go back to the drawing board after you hit a wall of disappointment? If you haven't yet... you will. This episode is an *excellent* guide through that process; how to think about it, how to develop strategies, where to find inspiration. Enjoy!

Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.co/264

Do you lean more to the artistic or organizational side? Are you struggling to organize your creative ideas? Is it difficult for you to make time for ideas amongst all the organization and admin that you do?

As entrepreneurs, there is a constant balancing act that takes place between these two poles. On one hand you have the inspiration, ideas and free energy of your business, and on the other hand, the structure, organization and management.

Without a good mix of these it is difficult to imagine a successful business.

In this episode, we talk about just that - how to give enough energy and time to both areas. More importantly, how to do this according to your needs and personality!

During the discussion we even help you reclaim the true meaning of ‘creativity’ so as to encompass both worlds and emphasize their dual-role in creation and production.

So come with us on this journey as we help you down the ski-slope of your business. With both feet firmly in a place and your mind as the director of each ski we are certain you can ensure a smooth ride! Tune in to hear it all!
