Rank #1: Episode 62- The need to recharge

Podcast cover
Read more

We all know what it’s like when we start to feel a little fried in our business. Long hours, pressure and stress, an ever increasing “to do” list and before we know it, we can burn ourselves out. And this has some long term ramifications. 

Understanding that burn out can impact any small business owner and what that could lead to, makes this a very important topic for discussing, especially as it feels like we are swimming against the tide on a daily basis. 

In this episode we take a deep dive into the world of small business owner burnout, what causes it and what we call do about it. An important episode for every single small business owner on the planet.

Rank #2: Episode 61- The subscription economy

Podcast cover
Read more

Whether you know it or not, we’ve all become a part of the subscription economy and it’s important to understand just how significant this has become in recent years and why we need to be looking at ways to get our small business onboard.

Every month we pay various subscription dues for everything from what we watch on television to our telephone service to various apps and platforms that we use in our business. We are very happy to pay little bits for a product or service every month, as opposed to large chunks. 

This new payment and pricing model is appealing for many reasons - the big question is how can you use the subscription model in your business? In this episode we are offering our thoughts on the best way to embrace the subscription model in your small business.

Podcast cover
Read more
You may have noticed that there is a Hipster Revolution happening - and it’s certainly have a big impact on the business world. In fact we think Hipsters are fantastic for reinvigorating businesses and industries, just give them time to get to yours.   So what exactly do Hipsters do that we can learn from? Why are they appearing in certain types of industries but not others? What exactly are  they bringing to the small business world? Lots of questions, lots of laughs - and more than a few learnings to be had.    In this episode of Business Over Breakfast we take a long hard look at the Hipster Revolution and try to make sense of it. This is a great episode, one we both loved recording. Grab a bowl of Corn Flakes and settle in for some tattoos and beards over breakfast.      Buy the Business Over Breakfast Vol 1 BookBree James Website PakMag WebsiteThe PakMag Parents Podcast Andrew Griffiths WebsiteAuthorvilleAndrew’s weekly INC columnAndrew’s Flying Solo column

Rank #4: Episode 59 - The growing need to run a transparent business.

Podcast cover
Read more
Trust is a big word in the business world these days, particularly in the corporate world. The overall lost of trust, particularly with the corporate world, has a flow on effect with small businesses as well. There is growing demand from consumers for businesses of all kinds to be transparent in all that they do.   The goal for any small business is to be completely trusted and trustworthy. Do this, and we feel that you will have no shortage of customers, but like most things, it’s not that easy to know where to start. How transparent do you need to be and can you be too transparent?    In the coming years transparency will be one the key factors that determines the success of a business. In this episode of the Business Over Breakfast show we are diving deep on the concept of transparency for small businesses - what it looks like, how we achieve it and what will happen if we don’t become transparent.      Buy the Business Over Breakfast Vol 1 BookBree James Website PakMag WebsiteThe PakMag Parents Podcast Andrew Griffiths WebsiteAuthorvilleAndrew’s weekly INC columnAndrew’s Flying Solo column

Rank #5: Episode 58 - A retrospective reflection - the last 10 years

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since we all faced the challenge of Y2K. That 20 year block disappeared in a heart beat. So what has changed in business in that time? Clearly just about everything. But let’s look at a tighter time frame - say 10 years. What has changed in that time and what have you learned?  The moral to this episode is the power of reflection as a business tool. But we don’t just want to sit and ponder the vague changes, we want to extract some deeper and more meaningful information and ideas that we can use in our business for the next 10 years. Because as the old saying goes, “what got us here won’t get us there”.    So in this episode, we share our realisations and reflections on the last decade and extract what this means for the future in our businesses and yours.

Rank #6: Episode 57 - A deep dive on a very unique company - Patagonia

Podcast cover
Read more
We all hear the term “social good” being used, especially in the corporate world but what does it really mean? Is there a company out there that really captures the essence of this concept in a way that we can learn from and apply to our own business? We think there is.    In this episode of the Business Over Breakfast show, we take a deep dive look at Patagonia, the outdoor clothing company. Founded in the 1970’s - Patagonia is remarkable, on many levels. Their mission is “To Save the World”. And they are certainly doing that. But what can we do as small business owners?    We’ve looked long and hard at Patagonia and distilled a number of key elements that make this business unique and applicable to any business. We share these ideas, concepts and strategies and without doubt, they are extraordinarily powerful.   So buckle up, grab a strong coffee and enjoy episode 57 of the Business Over Breakfast Show.    Buy the BOB Vol 1 Book - https://www.booktopia.com.au/business-over-breakfast-vol-1-andrew-and-james-bree-griffiths/prod9780987406668.html Bree James website - https://breejames.com/ PakMag - https://pakmag.com.au/ Bree James PakMag podcast - https://pakmag.com.au/podcast Andrew Griffiths website - https://www.andrewgriffiths.com.au/ Authorville - https://authorville.com.au/ Andrew’s weekly INC column - https://www.inc.com/author/andrew-griffiths Andrew’s Flying Solo column - https://www.flyingsolo.com.au/member/andrew-griffiths https://www.patagonia.com.au/pages/company-history

Rank #7: Episode 56 - Welcome to the new world of customer service.

Podcast cover
Read more
We came across an interesting quote recently that said “if you have a major customer complaint in 2018 you may not be around in 2019”. Whilst this may sound melodramatic, there is some truth to it. Customers have changed so much in the past few years and in reality, the change has just begun. Customers have power and they are certainly not afraid to use it.   For most businesses the area that can let them down is communication. The single biggest customer service complaint is that businesses don’t get back to their customers when they say they will. Simply make a conscious effort to become a great communicator and you are miles ahead of your competitors.    So in this episode of the Business Over Breakfast Show, we take a new look at an old topic and aim to provide some practical advice on coming to grips with this new world of customer service. We hope you get a great deal out of this episode.    Buy the BOB Vol 1 Book - https://www.booktopia.com.au/business-over-breakfast-vol-1-andrew-and-james-bree-griffiths/prod9780987406668.html Bree James website - https://breejames.com/ PakMag - https://pakmag.com.au/ Bree James PakMag podcast - https://pakmag.com.au/podcast Andrew Griffiths website - https://www.andrewgriffiths.com.au/ Authorville - https://authorville.com.au/ Andrew’s weekly INC column - https://www.inc.com/author/andrew-griffiths Andrew’s Flying Solo column - https://www.flyingsolo.com.au/member/andrew-griffiths

Rank #8: Episode 55 - How can we all have more fun in our business?

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s so easy to be dismissive of the concept of having fun in our business but maybe, just maybe, it’s more important than we realise. There’s no doubt that over time it’s very easy for a business to lose it’s fun feel, for things to become heavier and basically for everyone, including the customers, to stop having a good time. Does it really matter? Shouldn’t business be a serious thing? Hell no! It is after all, only business.    You know that we love a good laugh, and we are both constantly trying to outdo each other in the “who is funnier stakes - (we know it’s Andrew right)”, but the reality is that we both understand how important have a serious fun element to any small business can be.  But what do you do if you’ve lost that fun feeling? Can you get it back? Want some really practical ideas? The best move you can take is to grab a strong cup of coffee, get comfortable and tune into this episode of the Business Over Breakfast show for a good laugh and plenty of ideas on how you can bring the fun back to your business today.     Buy the BOB Vol 1 Book - https://www.booktopia.com.au/business-over-breakfast-vol-1-andrew-and-james-bree-griffiths/prod9780987406668.html Bree James website - https://breejames.com/ PakMag - https://pakmag.com.au/ Bree James PakMag podcast - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-pakmag-parents-podcast/id1439864478?mt=2 Andrew Griffiths website - https://www.andrewgriffiths.com.au/ Authorville - https://authorville.com.au/ Andrew’s weekly INC column - https://www.inc.com/author/andrew-griffiths Andrew’s Flying Solo column - https://www.flyingsolo.com.au/member/andrew-griffiths

Rank #9: Episode 54 - What fears are holding you back in life and in business? 

Podcast cover

What fears are holding you back in life and in business?    According to self development icon, Dale Carnegie, ninety percent of what we worry about never happens. Even though he offered that advice a very long time ago, he has a point. But that doesn’t make the fears that hold us back any less relevant or any less powerful.    In this episode of the Business Over Breakfast Show, we share some of the most common fears holding us back in business and of course, we offer advice on what we can do about these fears.    And in our “Food For Thought” segment we talk about an innovation that lets people wear clothes for a month without washing them (ewwwwww), a boat made entirely from recycled plastic and whilst we are on the recycling platform, a very cool company in Sri Lanka has found a use for discarded flowers.    Buy the BOB Vol 1 Book - https://www.booktopia.com.au/business-over-breakfast-vol-1-andrew-and-james-bree-griffiths/prod9780987406668.html Bree James website - https://breejames.com/ PakMag - https://pakmag.com.au/ Bree James PakMag podcast - pakmag.com.au/podcast  Andrew Griffiths website - https://www.andrewgriffiths.com.au/ Authorville - https://authorville.com.au/ Andrew’s weekly INC column - https://www.inc.com/author/andrew-griffiths Andrew’s Flying Solo column - https://www.flyingsolo.com.au/member/andrew-griffiths

Rank #10: Episode 53- Mastering the art of saying NO - it’s not as easy as we think.

Podcast cover
Read more

Most of us struggle with saying NO. For whatever reason that little two letter word can be the hardest one to say. Sadly if we don’t master the art of saying no, we pay the price. After a while we tend to either burn ourselves out or get so frustrated that we erupt and say things out of anger and frustration as opposed to calm logic.

Like most aspects of doing business, saying no is simply a skill set. Bree and Andrew share their own take on this topic and of course their own experiences. Not all are good - and that’s what this show is all about, sharing honestly in a way that will be relevant and practical for the small business owners listening in. So if you are one of those people who struggles to say no, this episode of the Business Over Breakfast show is for you.
