Rank #1: MBA858 Are You A Good Enough Leader?

Podcast cover
Read more

To succeed, a business needs competent leadership. But what makes a great leader? Is it drive? Is it the confidence to bear authority? Or is leadership about more than just ambition? Today we discuss 8 key personal characteristics that define great leadership, from confidence to emotional intelligence. As our own software company, WebinarNinja, grows, we’ve found that leadership is more important than ever.

Leadership is about far, far more than power. It’s about open-mindedness, empathy, and the ability to inspire productivity rather than demand it. We believe leadership is a matter of learned behavior— behavior that can be consciously nurtured. We believe leadership is a choice that every entrepreneur can make, not an inborn trait that entitles someone to authority. And we believe that if you can develop the personality traits discussed here, you can lead your business anywhere. Click play!

Rank #2: MBA1137 4 Steps to Make Enough Passive Income For Your Personal Expenses + Free Ride Friday!

Podcast cover
Read more

You want to start a business, but you’re terrified.

You’re terrified that you could find yourself unable to fund your basic needs like housing, food, and Netflix (ok, maybe that last one’s not technically a “need,” but still). Entrepreneurship is risky, and takes time, and you have to make a living while your business grows. So what can you do to keep a roof over your head while you pursue your own success?

Enter the “passive” income.

Yes, passive income is real. No, it’s not a way to earn money for doing nothing. It’s a smart, savvy way to fund your day-to-day life while making moves the conventionally employed can’t make. It allows you to focus on your life, not your living. It gives you the freedom to choose entrepreneurship, without ending up in a hole.

Find out how you can use the passive income strategy (along with some extra work and a little sacrifice) to keep yourself stable, wherever business takes you. Click Play!

Rank #3: MBA852 Stop Trying To Discover Your Passion [REBROADCAST]

Passion is overrated. That’s the message we’ve been pushing for a while now, and it’s gotten no less controversial. That’s why we’re airing this archived episode that inspired quite a bit of feedback! While following your passion is a nice idea, it’s definitely not a requirement for an entrepreneur. Instead, we advocate a different approach- one centered on identifying your value to the market. Forget the passion. Find the value! Click play!

Rank #4: MBA1154 How to Handle a Request for a Raise

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s gonna happen. As your business grows and your team members ponder their futures, they’ll want to know how much you value them. Like, exactly how much.

Whether you employ freelancers, full-timers, or contractors, shelling out the dough to keep the right people on board is a must. Of course, you have your whole business budget to consider, so how can you offer just compensation while keeping your books balanced? How can you avoid expensive turnover and expensive over-compensation?

You need a plan.

Well in advance of any raise requests, you need to have an established playbook for considering them. If you’re caught off guard, you may make the wrong decision — either paying too much, or losing an employee who was totally worth it. Today, we offer our system for evaluating and responding raise requests in a way that works for all parties concerned.

Remember: the cost of losing someone great can exceed the cost of keeping them. Click Play!

Rank #7: MBA1218 Must Read: Dare to Lead by Brené Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Don’t think you’re a leader? That’s actually a good place to start!

This week’s Must-Read book for entrepreneurs is Brene’ Brown’s Dare to Lead. In it, Brown explains how to find your own innate ability to take charge and lead, however hidden it might be under layers of insecurity. The emotions — including the fear — inside you can be used to inspire your team in ways you might not realize.

As Brown argues, your vulnerabilities are actually some of your greatest leadership assets, if you know how to use them.

If you’re a reluctant leader, or not 1000% confident in your leadership abilities, this is lesson for you. Once you understand the value of vulnerability (and the poison of perfectionism), you can become the business leader you never knew you were. Click Play!

From emotional self-regulation to realistic goal-setting, these are the principles that work for every business.

Rank #9: MBA1167 Is It Too Late To Start a Blogging Business? + Free Ride Friday!

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s a question many would-be entrepreneurs are asking themselves: can you still make a living with a blog?

About 10 years ago, people started earning serious money just by blogging. Has the business model survived? Can you still earn enough to live the life you want? The short answer is yes, you can still blog your way to success. The blog is in the middle of a sort of rebirth, with a new generation of writers cashing in.

However, the rules have changed.

Gone are the days of easy keyword-stuffing and low competition. A crowded marketplace, sophisticated search engine algorithms, and a higher standard for writing have changed the game drastically. Even still, there are hugely profitable businesses centered around quality blogs.

Today, we discuss how to blog your way to profit. We explain how to find your subject niche, promote your blog, and stand out from the (very big) crowd by speaking directly to a well-defined audience. The business is different. The readers are different. But the profit is there, if you’re willing to learn where the revenue streams are. Click Play!

Rank #10: MBA1173 Guest Teacher: Chris Hogan- How to Become an Everyday Millionaire

Podcast cover
Read more

What does a millionaire look like?

A trust-fund baby? A hedge-fund bro? Nope. As it turns out, millionaires aren’t the exotic species we think they are. Overwhelmingly, they’re not born into privilege. And shockingly, they don’t tend to have high-powered jobs.

Often, millionaires are regular people.

So how does Average Joe hit 7 figures? That’s what this week’s special guest teacher is here to tell us. Chris Hogan is a best-selling author and podcast host who specializes in debunking the myths around wealth. He has a practical, realistic approach to crushing debt and making the wise investments that turn regular people into “everyday millionaires.”

Hear Hogan’s down-to-Earth approach, and see how significant wealth is more attainable — and less exotic — than you might think. Click Play!

Rank #11: MBA1155 Q&A Wednesday: I’m launching a web app. Do I also need to have a mobile app to go with it?

Podcast cover

Does every web application need a mobile version? If not, which ones do?

Most major software companies have a version of their product for every device under the sun. But for lean startups, you’ve gotta put your time and effort into what returns the best investment. Today, we discuss exactly how to figure out if you need a mobile app — and if so, how to proceed.

There are a few key questions you must ask to determine whether developing a mobile app is worth your time and money. In fact, it may be the case that you only need a mobile app, and you can forget about laptop, desktop, and tablet versions.

Tune in, and find out what those questions are. Ask them, and you’ll find a path forward for your software. Click Play!

You don’t need to reach the most customers. You need to reach the right customers.

Big-tent marketing, reaching out to the widest audience possible, is a thing of the past. Modern marketing is all about targeted campaigns aimed at people who would love your product specifically. If you try to speak to everyone, you’ll speak to no one.

Rather than speaking louder, you’re going to speak the right language.

By choosing the right words, you’ll draw in the customers that stick around. By attracting the right people, you’ll reduce churn and maximize your chances of long-term success, not short-term attention. By blowing that dog whistle at the right frequency, you’ll bring in the keepers, not just the curious.

Rank #15: MBA1169 Goals: Should You Set Them?

Podcast cover
Read more

Happy New Year! It’s officially 2019, and we’re ready to hit the ground running with all new lesson to help you make this the best year ever for your business. Speaking of which, what are your goals for the year?

More importantly, do goals matter?

What’s the value of a goal? Is it just an arbitrary milestone, or does it have true motivational value? Many modern experts are abandoning the goal-driven approach, arguing instead that habits and intrinsic motivation do more for your success than trying to hit a given target.

Are we living in a post-goal business era?

We don’t think so. Rather than abandoning goals altogether, we think a new understanding of goals is in order.

Rank #16: MBA1129 How to Know if Entrepreneurship is Not For You

Podcast cover
Read more

A basic truth of business: this isn’t for everyone.

Entrepreneurship isn’t a better way of making a living, just a different one. And only certain kinds of people are suited for it. Having coached and mentored many an independent business person through the $100 MBA, we’ve seen what it takes to succeed — and why being honest with yourself is the first prerequisite.

Over time, we’ve noticed a collection of common traits, aversions that all but guarantee entrepreneurship will not work out for someone. There are certain things that only entrepreneurs enjoy, while most people will be stressed right back into conventional employment.

Yes, this is one of those “hard truth” episodes. But like all hard truths, it’s vital to hear.

There’s nothing wrong with not being an entrepreneur. Forcing yourself to be someone you’re not isn’t smart for anyone, in business or life. Tune in to this episode, and see if you’re really cut out for this wacky, but rewarding, world we live in. If not, do what’s right for you and yours, and express your potential in the way that suits you best.

One way to find out — Click Play!

Rank #17: MBA1276 How to Stop Procrastination Every Time

Podcast cover
Read more

You’ll get around to it…right?

Of course not. Procrastination is a classic business-killer, one that’s derailed many an entrepreneurial dream before it even got anywhere. The road to independent success is littered with fallen entrepreneurs who just never got around to this, that, or the other thing.

If that’s a problem for you, it’s time to address it. Now.

Avoidance, conscious or otherwise, is a common problem. To beat it, you have to understand why you’re doing it, and develop a crucial skill: catching yourself doing it. With the system we discuss today, you can train yourself to get the ball rolling on anything, anytime.

Learn our step-by-step method to see procrastination coming, cut it off, and leave it in the dust. Get business handled, from the first minute. Click Play!

Rank #18: MBA892 How To Master The 3 Branches of Your Business

Podcast cover
Read more

A successful business has many components, but all of them fall into one of 3 main categories. These 3 branches of business are the basic aspects of commerce. They are the pillars that hold up any company, big or small. And like any tripod, without each leg in place, the whole thing comes crashing down. By understanding the 3 branches, and applying appropriate levels of focus to each, you can give yourself the edge that means the difference between success and failure.

You can ensure that your business has a fighting chance.

It all comes down to these: smarketing, product development, and customer service. None of those are likely to come as a surprise, even if you’ve never heard the term “smarketing” before (that’s sales + marketing, the line between the two being a blurry one in the greater scheme of things). But too many entrepreneurs focus on one or two at the expense of the others. While they excel in one arena, they drop the ball in another. Their businesses suffer as a result.

This is a choice.

Proud tradespeople and artists devote themselves to their craft— their product— but put little time into marketing or customer service. Born sales people love the dance of securing customers and making deals, but allow the quality of their product to be sub-par. Devoted, loyal entrepreneurs put customer satisfaction above all else— including the acquisition of new business. As great martial artists are known to say, a fighter’s strength is his or her weakness. By relying too heavily on what comes easiest, some entrepreneurs never develop into well-rounded business people.

You can do better.

On today’s podcast, we discuss the importance of each branch in turn, and the vital role each plays in the development of a successful business, no matter what kind or what size. Going further, we discuss how to prioritize these branches at different points in the growth of your business. While one may be paramount at the beginning, another may become more important later on. Knowing when to focus on which branch is key to leveraging your efforts and maximizing your growth.

Beyond that, knowing which aspects you excel at (and which ones you don’t) is crucial to your development as an entrepreneur. With self-awareness, honesty, and the willingness to shore up your weak points while nurturing your talents, you can be the entrepreneur whose ideas go the distance. While a thousand great business ideas go no further than talk, a balanced approach to the 3 branches of business can turn the dream into a reality.

Tune in, listen to our in-depth explanation of the 3 branches and how to properly utilize them. Hone your skills, and learn how to apply your precious time, resources, and effort where they count the most. Be one of the entrepreneurs who make it. Know what forces need to be balanced, and how to balance them. Succeed. Click Play!

Rank #19: MBA1057 Free Trials: With or Without a Credit Card Required? + Free Ride Friday!

Podcast cover
Read more

The free trial: it’s an old, effective, tried-and-true way to turn leads into sales. But there’s one aspect of the free trial that business owners can’t seem to agree on.

Should you require a credit card, or not?

On the one hand, taking credit card info makes the final sale that much easier — and therefore, that much more likely. On the other, asking for credit card info before the prospect is ready to buy can cut things off before they start. When every second counts (and online, every second counts), every barrier to entry is a potential loss of sale.

Today, we put in our two cents.

With a couple different businesses under our belts (and one more on the way), we’ve used both methods. We’ve found that certain types of businesses and products lend themselves more to one method or the other. Like much else in entrepreneurship, it’s all about the timing.

Besides our own businesses, we discuss other examples of (highly successful) businesses which do and don’t require credit card info for a free trial. Listen in, and figure out what would work best for you. Click Play!

Rank #20: MBA1056 The 1 Thing You Should Never Outsource

Podcast cover
Read more

As your business grows, you can’t do everything yourself. However, there are some things no one else should do for you.

In fact, there’s one thing you can never, ever delegate.

It’s healthy and necessary to hand off responsibilities as time goes by. Outsourcing, delegating, and otherwise trusting others to help move your business forward is the only sustainable way. But there’s one part of running a business that will always be your responsibility, and should always occur in-house.

This responsibility is so vital, so central to the health of your business, that passing it on to outsiders will only cost you in the long run. It defines the direction of your business. Most importantly, it takes a long time to get really good at — so you want to practice it for as long as possible.

Learn about the one job you can never pass along, and why. Click Play!
