Play episode · 48 min

We love hearing from listeners of this show.

We put out the call a few weeks ago for listeners to send us your stories, and you responded to us in abundance.

Our mailbox has been positively chock full of listener voicemails about all kinds of topics.

In today's episode, we'll be listening to several of those voicemails and weighing in with our own thoughts and observations.

The topics range from how much location really matters, why hustle is the ultimate entrepreneurial muscle, the value of being an "intrapreneur", and love in the age of COVID.

When To Walk Away From Your Business And Start Over (Even When It’s Profitable), With Michael and Roslyn Rozbruch.
You may not love talking or thinking about Taxes, but Michael and Roslyn Rozbruch are thriving in this space, and talk to Roland Frasier about their journey together as founders of the Tax and Business Solutions Academy, and RozStrategies.com  In Today's episode, we talk about Partnerships that went bad, launching when you don't know what you're doing, scaling, and pivoting. Listen through to the end for some nuggets of wisdom from Michael on Fear and Roz's insight on partnering with your significant other. "If you took all the fear in the world and boiled it down, there's only two kinds of fear in the world. One is fear of losing something you already have, and the second is fear of not getting something you want." Michael Rozbruch Listen Today For,  * The profitable business that Michael walked away from (and why). "Everything in life has a beginning, a middle and an end, and, you know, after 16 years in my tax resolution practice, I had 125 people in 15,000 square feet. I mean, we were servicing between 3,000 to 4,000 clients a year. But you know, it was time for me to exit". Michael Rozbruch. * How to launch with no list and very little knowledge. * Their passion for learning and how they absorb expertise. "I'm like one of those great people you want at your conference. I think I spent $30,000 worth of product; we bought everybody's product." Michael Rozbruch * Secrets to working with your significant other. * Where strategic relationships can accelerate your business. * How they scaled and "layered up" their products and memberships. "If you were going to buy something from us, you're going to get more value beyond what you've invested, and that has helped our business model." Roslyn Rozbruch. Plus, How To Pivot In Response To The Pandemic "I have a high tolerance for risk. And, but this was like, above my pay grade". Michael Rozbruch • Don't be afraid to take your events Virtual. They can still be awesome. • Embracing change is the key to success. "It's really important to open yourself to change so that you can pivot and ask if this isn't working, what do we need to do to make it work?" Roslyn Rozbruch.

RYB 898: How To Pick My Digital Product Topic? Jam Session
How To Choose Your Digital Product Every person will be in a different part of the process. However, it's important to understand that whatever digital product you create should be something that your audience wants. There are three simple ways that you can find inspiration on what type of digital product you should create. Investigate Your Market Place To start, I recommend heading over to Amazon and taking a look at Kindle books within your market. See what content has already been created. This will give you a better idea of what people within your market are looking for. I also recommend heading over to your competitors' sites to see if they offer any digital products. Send a Naked Emai to Your List Another great way to get ideas for content and needs in the market is to send out a naked email. Ask your email list what type of content they are looking for to better serve them. Even if you have a small audience, get their opinion. Having an email list when creating a digital product is going to be huge. Use Your Own Experience For Content Ideas If you've been in the shoes of your audience, use your own experience to come up with content ideas for your digital product. Identify Your Digital Product's Purpose Your product needs to solve a problem or improve a person's life. Make sure that you identify the main purpose of the product before you start to create it. It's important to highlight the product's features to show how it'll solve a problem or make their life easier. How to Promote Your Upcoming Workshop Start by announcing your workshop, talk about it on your Facebook profile, fan page etc. From there, you reach out to each individual that said they were interested. You would simply send them the link to your PayPal account and collect payment that way. Keep it really simple from the start. When you're ready to take it to the next level, you can directly create a sales page within ConvertKit. To promote your course to your email list, you could easily pull small take-aways from your workshop to send out. You can share bite-sized pieces of content pieces from the workshop to show that your course will provide value and give them a sense of what to expect. Just make sure that you always have a home base. Somewhere that people will always be able to find your digital products and courses. I hope you enjoyed this week's edition of our Friday jam session. Until next time, remember, I am here for you, I believe in you, and am rooting for you. It's time for you to take action and go rock your brand!

Jack Born - How To Ethically Use Time Scarcity In Your Offers
You are going to get a breakdown of how to make money in your business with today’s show (and have fun too!) Today we are talking to Jack Born, the founder of Deadline Funnel which is such an amazing tool. In this episode, one of the things we touch upon is how a lot of people feel weird using countdown timers, and how to get around those feelings, especially if you are a heart-centered marketer. We also chat about how to increase your sales in your business using countdown timers, how to generate an affiliate income, and the psychology behind buying without being sleazy. You’ll love how Jack breaks down how long should you do the countdowns for, when should you re-open after the countdown happened, and if you are an affiliate marketer, how can you use the countdowns in your business. When you are done listening, be sure to check out our conversations with Wilco de Kreij and Drew Burks for more tips on how to grow your subscriber base and use automated webinars in your marketing. “It’s very unlikely that you are going to have one front end product where that’s your entire business. Most of our business is built on the idea that once you’ve bought from me, you’re more likely to buy the next product. You certainly don’t want to ruin that relationship by trying to go cheap with your technology stack and essentially lying to your subscribers.” - Jack Born Some Topics We Discussed Include: * Why are we talking about peeing in the swimming pool? * New podcast game - business book bingo * How to reconcile any negativity with putting a deadline on digital products * The psychological reasoning behind why you want to use a deadline * What you want to have in place before you introduce a deadline into your sales process * The ‘Dolly Parton’ rule of running your timer * Selling your thing through the “Perfect Persuasion Window” * How to make an evergreen product stand out when introducing a deadline * An important message to those that are heart-centered entrepreneurs * And much, much more!
