Hey Rock Star!
One of the tips I got from John Lee Dumas at Podcast Movement last month
Was that if he were going to start a podcast today, he would do the following:
- NOT interview anyone
- Focus on a specific audience/niche
- Come up with 50 pain point topics for that specific audience
- Make each episode less than 10 minutes each
- Release a daily show or a show three days per week
WOW, that's much different than what JLD is doing on EO Fire.
But the podcasting space today is WAY different than when JLD started ten years ago.
I'm not afraid of taking action and pivoting when necessary.
One of the issues I have had with The BizableTV podcast was twofold...
One, the name does not solve a problem or purpose and means anything to anyone.
And Two, replaying the BizableTV episodes are excellent, but it's a bit lazy, and I don't get to speak with you directly.
So this week, that changes!

What Does Web3 Mean For Your Business?
Is Web3 just another buzzword or noise in the wilderness of business?
I tend to ignore things like this along with NFTs, Cryptocurrency and cabbage patch, kids!😂
If you're into Crypto, don't send me any hate mail, I'll come around.
But this article may help some of you, like me, who have heard of Web3 but don't know much about it.
Regardless of how you feel about Web3, I do agree with this statement from the article:

Which Questions To Avoid During A Sales Conversation And Why.️
The other day my friend John Nemo mentioned not having "Commission Breath."🤦♂️
I will be using this new term in the future because we have all experienced or had commission breath if you've been a creative entrepreneur for any amount of time.
Dont ask the following:
- "Are you the decision maker?"
- "What's your budget?''
- "Can I get your email address?"
- "Do you want to reach out to me?''
- "What do you want to buy?"
- "Have you made up your mind yet?"
- "Simple yes or no questions"

New Episode Alert!
10 Points for Launching a Successful Private Coaching or Consulting Business
The term “entrepreneur” conjures up glamourous visions of fast cars and luxury hotel high-rises, but entrepreneurship shouldn’t be wholly focused on financial success.
Many entrepreneurs become too caught up in quixotic notions of money and freedom that they ignore the glaring difficulties associated with an independent practice.
This “entrepreneurship seizure” is the reason why a majority of small businesses fails within the first few years.
A lack of planning and managerial knowledge will cause the unprepared to succumb to the overwhelming dictates of work, until they realize too late their mistake.
By then, the entrepreneurial spirit has long died.
In the end, every successful entrepreneur needs to strike a balance between creativity and practicality to achieve their vision.
In today’s episode of BizableTV, professional coach and author Christopher McCluskey delineates actionable steps that will guide you in successfully launching your own private coaching or consulting business.
