The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur with John Jantsch

The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur is a new book by John Jantsch, and one I'll be getting for many of my entrepreneurial friends as gifts (and must-reads). This book speaks to me on so many levels and I was thrilled to get the opportunity to talk to John about it. I've been a reader for as long as I can remember. In fact, as a child, I used to just re-read the books I had when I needed something to read (it never occurred to me to ask my parents to take me to the library, which they would have gladly done). I'm always reading multiple books at one time, based on what I need or want at the moment, but once in a while, a book comes along that becomes part of your daily routine and a staple on your nightstand or desk. That's what The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur is... one of those books that become part of your daily routine. Buy The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur Here Questions I Asked John * This book is pretty different from the other books you've written. What inspired you to write this book? * How did you decide which transcendentalists to study/include in the book? * In what ways do you think entrepreneurs are NOT self-reliant? * Why do you think we need this book now? * You mentioned that you’ve learned a great deal about yourself when writing this book. What can you share that you learned that has impacted how you do business? * This is a new take on the ‘morning routine’... I love the challenge questions. Were you going through the challenges as you wrote the book? It was a crash course not only in the literature but in self-awareness as well. @ducttapeClick to Tweet What You're Going to Learn * Why John decided to write this book (and how it's been a 20-year process) * How he decided which transcendentalists to include in the book * What John learned about himself personally while writing this book * How you can create a journaling practice around the book and the challenge questions * How our current time mirrors the time that the transcendentalists lived and spoke their truth I think self-reliant entrepreneurs will save the world. @ducctapeClick to Tweet Buy The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur Here Where to Connect with John Website | Twitter | Podcast Links from this episode

The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur with John Jantsch

The Stories We Tell Ourselves that Hurt Our Businesses

At this point in my life, I feel like I've gained a little bit of wisdom. I used to get frustrated because I felt there were so many things that I wished I had done differently or had paid attention to or done years ago. Not anymore. Of course, I still get frustrated, but I never really go down that old path of 'woulda, shoulda, coulda'. It just doesn't happen... or if it does, it's very brief and I catch myself. I don't feed it. Because of this, my life has a completely better flow and I move through things much quicker. I've had a handful of experiences recently that have been massive validation that things happen exactly when they're supposed to... in divine timing. As I've had these experiences it's made me evaluate other areas of my life and business where I can start shifting my mindset on things and start telling a better story. Isn't it crazy that we can hear something over and over again, but we don't "get it" until we're ready to? I want to share some of those stories and ...

The Stories We Tell Ourselves that Hurt Our Businesses

So You Want To Be A Podcast Guest…

If you've been hosting a podcast for a while (for the sake of this post, let's say longer than a year), you've probably received unsolicited requests from people who want to be a guest on your podcast (and if you haven't, hang in there, you will). Not only are they unsolicited requests, which we'll talk about in a minute, but it's usually from someone who is doing the outreach for someone else. Which, in and of itself isn't really a big deal. It's how they go about doing it. The first few years I was podcasting I was completely open to talking to anyone (O.K., maybe not anyone, but most people). I reached out to people I knew, people I admired, and friends. Getting interviews wasn't difficult, but pre-screening people needed some help. I knew when I launched my show that the format would be to alternate between solo shows and interviews. I did that for two reasons: * I know that I like listening to business updates, behind-the-scenes, etc. from the host only * I also wanted to make ...

Re-evaluating Business After Heartbreak & Loss KDS: 042

This summer has been a complete and teary blur. I'm going to do everything I can not to make this a sad, depressing episode, but bear with me as this is coming from a painful place. I've shared this on Facebook so I know it won't come as a surprise to many of you that my Mom passed away on July 14th. She had been sick for about 4 months and was basically misdiagnosed over and over again from her doctors. She started not feeling well in February and was told it was just a bug. Long story short, it wasn't. She had had a heart valve replacement 6 years ago and also had a port in from chemo two years ago (which I think should have been taken out), we believe the port got infected, which then infected her heart. By the time my Dad took her to emergency (since none of the doctors ever bothered to look at her heart), she had a very serious heart and blood infection. The rate at which she declined in the hospital was astounding. And makes me question everything I thought about our medical s...

Newsletters for Marketing & Growth with Josh Spector KDS: 041

Newsletters for marketing and growth are on the rise. I wrote an article called 'The Return of the Newsletter' and truly contribute my interest in newsletters to today's guest, Josh Spector. Josh Spector is who sent me down the rabbit hole when I found his newsletter titled "For the Interested" (we'll get into that more in a bit). I first found him on Medium, loved his content, then did what many of us do and followed the link and became a subscriber. I've since joined Josh's Facebook group (you can join Newsletter Creators below), look forward to his newsletter every week and have been on the lookout for quality newsletters that provide value. Josh 's background goes deep with content marketing and he's been behind a lot of successful social media and content marketing campaigns in Hollywood, such as the Oscars. He's been running the social media marketing for the Oscars for the last 9 years (including the famous 'Ellen selfie). Josh consults with clients to help them grow their au...

Allegra Sinclair & Non-Douchey Marketing, Part 2 – KDS: 040

Allegra Sinclair is back for part 2 of our conversation on non-douchey marketing. In case you missed the first episode, check out part 1 here (this was literally a two-hour recording, so we pick up where we left off from part 1). Confession time: I enjoyed listening to this as much as I enjoyed recording it. We covered a lot in this second half of the episode. In fact, I'm sure there are many discussion points we covered that are going to resonate with many of you. Such as... * Not building a business around a tool (anyone who did this with WordPress, the way I did, will understand this) * Why you have to be able to tell your story in order to succeed * Why you should focus on spending time where your customers are, not your peers (how many people do this with Facebook groups?) I also asked Allegra what she would tell someone who was just getting started with an online business today, knowing what she knows. Her answer (not surprisingly) was simple and direct. There are four simple ...

Design & Branding for Sales with Mor Cohen KDS: 039

Mor Cohen is one of my 'go to' resources for design & branding. I'm fortunate because I know a handful of great designers who are also successful at making sure their designs and branding convert to sales, but Mor put her 'money where her mouth is' (so to speak). Not only does she deliver amazing branding and design for her clients, but she used her own skills to brand and design a course, that she pre-sold and launched with massive success. Her course, Design Class, is for "digital marketers, web developers, and business owners, so you can master design and charge more for your products and services" (her words, straight off the website, not mine ;-) ). What was so amazing about Mor's course how is how she launched it. Mor has been doing design and branding for clients for years (she started in print design), but stepping out and offering a class on design was way out of her comfort zone. Fortunately, she did it anyway. This episode is going to convince you that doing design and br...

More Being, Less Being Seen KDS: 038

I've been thinking about balance in business and where I spend my time and energy quite a bit these days. In fact, it's probably safe to say this has been bubbling up for a while. My business has shifted and grown significantly in the last few months. I have another brand (Content Creators Planner), I've added services back into my business (content marketing), and am hiring team members again. It's been a couple of years since I've done any service work, and I was adamant that I didn't want to do services again... ever. Until the right service work came along (content marketing). I'm excited about this new part of my business, but I'm also not in a mad rush to sell this and bring on tons of clients. At least not until the systems are running like a well-oiled machine (or quite possibly ever). I should probably clarify what I mean by 'tons of clients' because truth is, I want to scale this to a comfortable and manageable level and see where that takes me. I have zero desire to creat...

Non-Douchey Marketing: A Conversation With Allegra Sinclair, Part 1 KDS: 037

Non-douchey marketing. How do you like that for a title? This conversation came out of an amazing article I read by Amanda Bond called "The Real Reason Facebook Ads Have Stopped Working"... and it's AH-MAZING. My dear friend, Allegra Sinclair joined me on the podcast to talk about all things marketing. Where we're frustrated, how the marketplace is changing, and all kinds of other juicy stuff. We started off by talking about being disappointed in the recent Kajabi event (IMPACT), which we both thought we would attend, but then saw the speaker lineup and were both disappointed. Disappointed in the sense that it seemed like it was the same speakers (guru's) that speak at most of the events, as opposed to featuring people that are more relatable. Don't get me wrong, I completely understand needing to have names and keynote speakers to draw people to an event, but I also want to hear about the everyday person who has reached success and is more relatable. I want someone who I feel like ...

Funnel Packs with Matt Davies KDS: 036

After doing a live stream demo with Matt Davies, the co-founder of Funnel Packs, I knew we needed to do a separate podcast interview. Unfortunately, not all live streams translate well to an audio-only version when you're doing a demo and screen sharing. I've linked to the live stream below if you want to watch the demo. Lucky for me, Matt Davies over-delivered on both the live stream and the podcast, so you won't be disappointed. Like the rest of my interviews, I had to start out by asking Matt about his entrepreneurial journey and what brought him to where he is today (running a successful agency and launching a product that his market desperately needed). Matt got his start way back when by building his first site on Geocities (anyone remembers Geocities?). Before he knew it he was learning HTML and built a website for his aunt & uncle's bed and breakfast (for a bargain, but he was hooked when he realized he could get paid for building websites).
