Introducing the Microblogger Podcast
Who doesn’t love a good podcast?
For years, I’d listened to them as a way to hear other people’s stories, learn how they succeeded, and trying to take bits and pieces from those and integrate them into my own entrepreneurial pursuits.
That’s what I want to capture in the Microblogger Podcast.
The things people do that might not make it onto a top 10 list but have a huge impact in your business.
I’ll talk to entrepreneurs and small business owners who are in the trenches and willing to share the lessons they’ve learned along the way. These lessons are absolute gold.
Each entrepreneur I’ve asked to come on the show has been successful and many started from zero.
They had zero experience, zero capital, zero connections. I started the exact same way. All they had were their smarts, their determination, mixed in with a lot of hard work and a dash of luck to help them along the way.
Here’s is a recap of just the first three:
- Our first episode is with JD Roth, which will discuss his rise from a “nobody” to someone who has sold a blog for millions, writes for Entrepreneur magazine, has written a bestselling book, and is now a sought after speaker. Not only will you hear his story but you’ll also learn a little more about the role writing has had in his life and his success. If you want to learn how to write better, how to connect with your audience better, then you must listen to this episode.
- In the second episode, I talk with Greg Go of Wise Bread. Wise Bread reaches 2 million readers a month and was co-founded by three high school friends who were simply sick of the rat race. Greg credits their success to the spirit of collaboration and he talks about how they make it work. If you are, or have considered, partnering up on a venture, some of the strategies they use in their business (especially having a Decider and making sure arguments never get personal) are spot on.
- In the third episode, we’ll talk to Steve Chou of My Wife Quit Her Job, a blog where he chronicles the lessons he’s learned building Bumblebee Linens, an ecommerce store that sells linens, with his wife. He has a course but we’re not selling you on his course, we talk about the birth of Bumblebee Linens, and some crucial lessons learned along the way. If you’ve considered an ecommerce store or are selling anything online, such as through Etsy, then this show is for you.
We have many many more episodes in the pipeline with some fantastic guests and I hope you enjoy them all!
The schedule will be two podcasts a week for the first few weeks, then we’ll settle into a one per week schedule.
