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!

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: 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!

So. Little. Time.

It’s every entrepreneur’s curse. But there might be more time than you think — if you know how to manage it properly. We all wish there were more than 24 hours in a day, and we’ve all hit our pillows anxious about what we didn’t accomplish. 

But there is hope. There is time you haven’t been using. And we’ve got 3 ways to find it.

As we like to say, time is not money; it’s way more valuable. Today, we’ll explain the three methods anyone can use to make the most of those precious 24. You can improve productivity for your business, and add more R&R time to your life. You can use one, two, or all three of these tricks to finally have the time you need to succeed. 

We use all 3 methods ourselves. From endless long days at the beginning, we’ve finally found ourselves with some time to enjoy existing while building our businesses. You can too — Click Play!

Rank #8: MBA1115 Q&A Wednesday: I have too many ideas for my business. How do I implement them all?

Podcast cover
Read more

Entrepreneurs have active minds. Our brains are always coming up with new ways to innovate, grow, and evolve. Ideas, as they say, are a dime a dozen — but only if they’re not executed in the real world.

So how can you make sure you’re getting the most out of your ideas? How can you keep up with your own busy brain?

Today, we’re offering a solution. We’ve got a super-efficient, time-effective system for organizing all your random ideas, weeding out the duds, prioritizing the ones with the most potential, and implementing them.

This idea-management formula won’t just save you time, it’ll keep you from wasting (or forgetting) your best and brightest notions.

All it takes is a simple, convenient spreadsheet, and a little time each week. We’ve used this system for years, and it’s served us very, very well. Get through the most ideas in the least time. Turn your a-ha moments into actionable plans. Don’t leave your ideas sitting where they’ll do the least good: in your head. Do something with them! Click Play!

Rank #9: MBA1352 Are You Doing Your Job as CEO? + Free Ride Friday!

Podcast cover
Read more

What’s a leader’s job?

As our business grows, we can find ourselves plateauing. That’s because a business founder has to make a difficult transition: at first, you’re the person responsible for everything. But ultimately, you have to let go of more and more responsibilities, handing them off so that you can focus on bigger, broader things.

And that can be hard as heck.

As CEO, refusing to let go of responsibilities will leave important things undone. Refusing to surrender your To Do list will take you away from CEO-specific priorities. If you can’t adapt to the new role that success hands you, you’ll stay exactly where you are — and that’s death for an entrepreneur.

Today, we discuss how to make the switch from “I got this” to “they got this,” and become the leader you aim to be. Omar would know; he’s learned to let our growing team take over one spinning plate after another, so he can keep his eye on the horizon.

And if he can do it, you can too. Click Play!

Rank #11: MBA1289 How to Get to $5K a Month as Fast as Possible

Podcast cover
Read more

The key to sustainable small business: minimum profitability.

The $5k per month mark is a crucial one, known as the “escape velocity” at which revenue generation is strong enough to actually, truly sustain a company. If your business can make it to $5k quickly, you’ll know for sure whether it’s a winner, or if it’s time to pull the plug and move on.

The faster you get there, the sooner you’ll reach your ultimate business goals.

So, how can we fast-track this all-important metric? How can we move as quickly as possible out of the experimental phase and into real-world business-building? With some strong tactics (and a few sacrifices), you can get there sooner — whether “there” is investing full-time into a proven idea, or moving on to the next one.

Reach that moment of truth ASAP. Your time is precious, and you deserve a strategy that doesn’t waste any. Click Play!

What are you worth to your company?

When creating a business plan, new entrepreneurs often forget to budget for one extremely important item: their own salary. Thing is, your personal financial health is just as important to your business as any other factor — especially if you’re pursuing entrepreneurship full-time.

You can’t short yourself, but you can’t short your business either. Today, we share our formula for determining the right number for your company. You can strike a healthy balance between your needs and your business budget, even if you have to adjust the former for the sake of the latter.

It’s an extremely important decision, one that deserves some extra thought. Click Play!

Rank #13: 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 #14: MBA898 The Top 5 Tasks to Outsource

Podcast cover
Read more

What’s the best return on investment? What’s the most valuable thing an entrepreneur can gain from any expense?

Time.

Time is the greatest ROI. Some say time is money, but money pales in comparison to the value of time, the one resource you can never replenish once lost. A goal of every entrepreneur should be to free up as much of their time as possible: time better spent innovating than managing, moving forward rather than treading water, or even just spent living and enjoying the freedom entrepreneurship offers.

So how can we get more time? Outsourcing.

The smartest, boldest thing you can do as an independent business leader is to get things off your own plate. Spend your money to free up your time by zeroing in on the most time-consuming tasks best left to others. Not only will this allow you to focus on the leadership aspects of your business, it may significantly improve the quality of your product. Why be the jack of all trades when you can hire a master of each?

On today’s episode, we discuss the top 5 tasks you should consider outsourcing. By utilizing team members, freelancers, even affiliates, you can stop working and start leading. Free up time, headspace, and personal resources to make yourself more effective than ever. Minimize stress and focus on the creative, exciting parts of running a business. Through outsourcing, you and your business can become more agile than ever.

What about the cost?

That’s the best part: today’s global marketplace is teeming with talent, available to work remotely from all over the world. With the prevalence of skills in everything from content to accounting, it has never been more affordable to outsource.

This is especially important as your business grows, and your success forces you to scale up. As your business gains momentum, your leadership will be far more important than your labor.

Podcast cover

As your business grows, organization becomes more and more crucial.

At some point, the systems you establish will be the difference between getting things done and scrambling to keep up. That’s why it’s so important to establish procedures, protocols, and workflows as early as possible.

Fortunately, there are tried-and-true ways to establish efficient systems and create repeatable core processes for your team to follow — even as your team grows, changes, and brings in new faces. Today’s guest teacher, Dan Martell of SaaS Academy, is an expert in crafting and executing consistent systems. These systems can free you from unnecessary work and excess management duties, allowing you to focus on the horizon rather than day-to-day operations.

Besides offering his most important systems-crafting tips, Martell also offers our listeners a special giveaway that will help you get organized, no matter where you are in your business journey.

Podcast cover

Experience is the best teacher, and we’ve had plenty.

Today, we put aside the specifics of day-to-day business, and focus on the principles that carry us through the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. We’ve got 4 principles that years of struggle, doubt, anxiety, and ultimate success have ingrained in our brains.

Learning how to cut through self-defeating impulses and focus on what matters can work wonders. By adopting the right mindsets, you can excel as exactly who you are, no matter the industry or niche. From emotional self-regulation to realistic goal-setting, these are the principles that work for every business.

Boost your productivity, and hasten your growth, without spending a dime. We use each and every one of these tools ourselves, and we almost feel guilty for not paying…almost. Click Play!

Rank #18: MBA1263 Guest Teacher: Ken Coleman – How to Use the Proximity Principle to go from Day Job to Dream Job

Podcast cover
Read more

The career you want is closer than you think. It’s only as far away as the right people.

Today’s special guest teacher, Ken Coleman, believes that proximity is the key to moving forward. Whether you’re transitioning from side hustle to full-time entrepreneurship, or just getting into business for yourself, proximity is everything.

Find the right people, and you’ll effect real change.

So many people talk about getting into business for themselves full-time. Going from “talk” to “walk” is all about making the connections that’ll spur your growth. Coleman, a renowned author and podcaster, is here to share the details.

He’ll explain how to actually make the first few moves that lead to real-life progress. By positioning yourself correctly, you can do the things that most people only talk about. You can get over the scary part, and head down the path of independence — even if you’re not sure exactly where it leads.

Find out what (and who) to surround yourself with. Take it from a master in the art of actually doing the things so many people wish they could. Click Play!

You’re starting your first business. Are you nervous?

Don’t be! Even though it’s your first time, you’ve got the advantage of our experience, right here on this podcast. There are so many things we wish we knew when we first got started. Today, we share 5 of the most important mistakes we wish we hadn’t made — because we totally did.

These are not small mistakes! All five of these screwups are potential business-killers.

The good news is that because we made these mistakes already, you don’t have to. And even if you have already made them, it’s not too late to change course. Whatever you do, do not let these errors slide. Avoid them, stop them; whatever it takes.

Many of these mistakes involve the transition from conventional work to entrepreneurship. For the newly independent, it’s important to know the key differences that trip people up. Let our experience (and our failure) be your guide. Click Play!
