The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

Rank #1: How to make your business more welcoming w/ John Livesay. What’s In This Episode: Have you had a great experience with a brand that leaves you feeling good? For Jill, it was a follow-up email after leaving a review for blinds. For Brad, it was tea that traveled all the way from England with a personal note and a recommendation. "Empathetic customer service can go a long way." - Brad Jill and Brad talk to the Pitch Whisperer John Livesay, a speaker who's in high demand, but he's not sure how to scale, especially because he can't be everywhere at once. They recommend that the consulting aspect of his business be delegated, and to raise his prices for speaking gigs. "You're saving you time; you're not saving me time." - Jill When it comes to showing the human aspect of your business, how can you do it? Personalization takes time and effort. In today's hurried world, some of that personal touch gets lost (don't get Jill started on calendar links and Brad recently talked about automated pitches on the Offline podcast). Are we automating things that shouldn't be automated? How do you make your business more welcoming? Guest: John Livesay, aka The Pitch Whisperer, is a sales keynote speaker and shares the lessons learned from his award-winning sales career at Conde Nast. In his keynote “Better Selling Through Storytelling,” he shows companies’ sales teams how to become irresistible so they are magnetic to their ideal clients. Visit his website here.
Rank #2: What to do when the "kids" get unruly. What’s In This Episode: Oh, summer. That time when all kids, everywhere, come down with the affliction known as "boredom." Jill and Brad have found some creative - and not so creative - ways to keep their kids busy. But what happens when your employees (the "kids" of your business) start complaining? How do you handle that? "It's excellent to clarify what they're missing versus your expectations." - Jill If your employees are reaching out because they're bored or they're done with their tasks, the problem might be that you as their boss haven't done a great job of explaining their responsibilities. And if they're getting unruly, Jill thinks it might be because they're having a bad day and she'll take a step back. Brad will address it one-on-one because he doesn't want that attitude to become the new normal. But if someone has a consistent attitude, they may be unhappy with their position. "Good employees verify boundaries with you." - Brad If the employee has a sense of entitlement, both Jill and Brad take steps to call it out. They'll ask questions to get to the root of the problem. Jill and Brad talk about the difference in reaction between entitlement and unruliness, plus how they work to set boundaries. What do you do when the "kids" get unruly? TOMORROW!

Rank #1: 460 | Your fear doesn’t make sense…. A few episodes ago I told you about the top level, secret mastermind group I made my way into with the guys that make the real money online. It's the group that took me years of doing business before I was invited and allowed in. I had to earn my way in, I couldn't just buy my way in. Anyway, I want to share another huge, body slamming secret I got from that group that I think can help you. In fact, I know it will. This group of mega-successful guys agreed that after all the years they had done business, there was one top thing that stops people from buying their products and it was the same thing, no matter what the market they were in. It doesn't matter if the product is personal development, fat loss, finding a mate, or starting a freedom business. Here goes: Most people are so afraid of FAILURE, they never try. That might already be obvious to you, but wait. There's more... **First, you need to understand this fear because when you start your freedom business, you'll be dealing with it all day, everyday from your customers too. Here is the other part of the secret. Only about 2% of people who buy most information products ever make any effort towards the end goal of the product. So, they buy it and never use it. The Givers of Secrets in my mastermind group agreed that they use to think the problem was that the 98% were lazy. That is what they USE to think. After decades of getting to know their customers they found out... ...get this… It wasn't because the 98% were lazy, it was because if they didn't actually try, they could keep the DREAM alive in their minds. The dream of finding their ideal mate. The dream of losing weight. The dream of gaining freedom and owning their own business. If they tried and failed even once, they felt their dream would die. They believed that not trying was better than losing their dream. This is so profound it makes me nearly cry every time I think of it... We can all logically understand that you can't get your dream until you take action (try), but our brain thinks saving us from failure is better than actually making our dreams into reality. It's a complete brain fart, but it happens all day, every day. It's crazy, but I totally get it. I still fight this messed up thinking about other things in my life. Because of this I have dedicated massive amounts of time to find ways to battle this 'fear misunderstanding'. In the first course I've added to the Freedom club, called the Freedom Formula, I've added what I call Success Behaviors to battle such dream crippling fears. We’ll destroy these fears and design a plan to actually get the dream out of your head and into your life. That is the first thing we'll do in the Freedom Club.

Rank #2: 415 | All the ingredients needed for the secret sauce of success.. For the first 6 years of my entrepreneurial journey I was completely obsessed with finding the secret sauce needed for success.I figured the "GURU's" kept the secrets to themselves, but I was determined to find them anyways.Secret sauce means the exact combination of abilities, skills, knowledge, mindset, etc, that makes success inevitable.I had found a type of secret sauce in the J-O-B I had before I became an entrepreneur, so there had to be with this.For 7-10 years of my entrepreneurial journey I no longer believed in a secret sauce. I had a lot of successful friends and I wrongly thought I couldn't really see a specific combination of traits that was in each of them. Or so I thought.Then, I found my way into a top level, secret mastermind group. Actually I earned my way in.I was one of the top affiliates for a BIG internet marketing duo. A couple of the biggest guys in the business. You probably know them, if you've been around for even 5 minutes.This mastermind group was held at a very ritzy hotel Even the room the mastermind was held in seemed classy and upscale, not like those low end, crummy hotel seminar rooms you've probably been in before.There were about 18 people in the room, including me.Half the people in the room were extremely well known to me, in many different markets.The other half where the “behind the curtain” guys behind the "GURU's", the guys that made the *real* money.I was blown away over the two long days I spent with them and I learned things about myself and business that changed me forever. One of those things was the 3 ingredients in the secret sauce of success.When I left this magical place I was shocked, angered, and extremely excited.I was shocked that I didn't know most of the massive secrets I learned in that room. Secrets that could have made my entrepreneurial struggle lessened to the point of ease.I was angered that no one taught the specifics of all I learned there. These big guys and "GURU's" keep the info for themselves, as I suspected they did! I was right all along...I was extremely excited that I had the knowledge and could put it to use right away.I generally knew about the 3 secret ingredients. They all seemed obvious once I knew about them, but I never have seen anyone focus on them to the degree they need to be focused on.I started focusing on them right away. The first ingredient is that you have to *deserve* success. You have to take the small steps everyday that lead to the success you desire. I actually talked about this quite a bit on this daily show and I'll be talking about it a LOT more.It seems simple, but it's massively important and there is a lot behind it's simple looking exterior. I had used this first ingredient myself and was able to help 1,000's of people and enjoy 7 figure paydays because of it and that was without focusing on it!This is why freeloaders and get rich quickers will never be successful, they want to simply "push a button once and money endlessly comes out" opportunity, but that doesn't exist and it's a loser mindset from the get go. Deserving success isn't hard, but it cannot be skipped.I built this first ingredient into every course I've made. Simple, step by step plans on how to deserve success is really what all 10 courses are in the Freedom Club are designed as. I've gotten really good at adding it for you.The next ingredient seems to have a bit of a negative vibe around it. I have a Facebook group I run JUST about this second ingredient.I asked the members what emotions came up about this ingredient and mostly seemed to be negative. Don't be tricked into thinking it is negative, it's extremely powerful and extremely important.The second ingredient is *persuasion*. I've currently dedicated myself to mastery with this subject. I love learning about it.

If you’ve ever wondered how to grow and monetise a social media following then you’re going to love this chat. Here’s what caught my attention from my chat with Keep It Cleaner’s Stephanie Claire-Smith & Laura Henshaw: Focus on engagement, not Followers. And it would seem the best way to do this is follow the theory of TELL don’t SELL. I loved how … when they realised their followers wanted more of them … they created and sold a simple eBook - despite the fact that included a photo of some slimy banana bread! I love how they are crystal clear on their brand and what it stands for. It was a pretty gutsy move for Stephanie to say “No’ to that Diet Tea brand given the amount of coin they were offering for a simple post … however, taking a long-term view there is no doubt that was the right decision.

Rank #1: HS 022 – How to Jumpstart Your Handyman Business – Interview With Brand New Handyman Justin Terrill. Are you still on the fence with whether or not a handyman business can actually work? Or, are you hesitant to get started? If so, you’re going to get inspired by this episode where I share a great interview with brand new Australian handyman business owner, Justin Terrill. This is the first time I’ve had a handyman on the show who is just getting started, and it turned out amazing. Justin started his handyman business only a couple of months ago and is already booked out two weeks in advance while charging a premium for his services. He was previously a teacher, when he realized that he enjoyed working with his hands much more. So, he put his skills that he learned from working on a farm to good use and got started with his handyman business in Sydney, Australia. I got in touch with Justin when he contacted me to thank me for helping him get started. As a member of the Handyman Web Academy (Now called Handyman Marketing Machine) and a reader of this blog, he took action on the knowledge that he learned and has had amazing results. It was inspiring to talk with Justin, and even though he’s just getting started, I learned a lot from him. Whether you are just getting started or have been in business for a while, Justin’s got some great insights to share. Here’s what we cover in this episode: The marketing methods Justin used to jumpstart his business. Why customers aren’t just looking for the highest skilled handyman and what they want instead. How a handyman business is surprisingly profitable. Challenges of going from employee to business owner. Talking money with customers and tips for getting more comfortable. The importance of choosing your clients. Simple and effective tips for getting more referrals. The importance of a professional image. Resources mentioned in the Podcast The Handyman Web Academy (Has been updated and is now called “Handyman Marketing Machine“) Turn Your Skills Into Profit – Referred to as “the startup guide” in the podcast.

Rank #2: HS023 – Business And Accounting Advice From Construction Accountant Randal Dehart. Need help with your bookkeeping or accounting? Good news! In this episode, I interview Randal DeHart, the leading expert in outsourced construction bookkeeping and accounting services for small construction companies across the USA. And, Randal isn’t just an accountant, he’s also a former plumbing contractor with 20 years of experience. So, not only does he understand handyman businesses from a accounting perspective, he understands it from the contractor’s perspective. Randal’s been involved in the construction industry pretty much since he was born as his dad was a contractor. After going to school to become an accountant, he decided, like many of us, that he didn’t want to work in an office. So, he changed his direction and set out to become a plumber. After very successfully starting, growing, and selling his plumbing company, he got back into accounting and now does it full time, focusing solely on helping contractors, handyman, and other tradesman grow their businesses through an intelligent and strategic approach. I’m honored to have Randal on the show and I’ve personally gained a lot of highly valuable business knowledge from him. Here’s what we discuss in this episode: The biggest mistake new handymen make when choosing a business structure and how to avoid it. Randal’s definition of a quality service (it’s more simple than you think.) How focusing on the right target customer (and he shares which ones) took his plumbing company to the next level.
