Ep 50(!!!!): Chasing a Big Dream with Ed Bley

We're celebrating pretty hardcore about hitting 50 episodes! Today we're doing a little trivia about the 1950s and making Josh guess all the answers... and the 5th question is quite surprising. We also chat about what's new at the end of todays episode. Let's just say we're highlighting a big milestone for Josh, and a terrible milestone for myself. Today’s guest, is Ed Bley, and unless your one of Josh's bourbon pals listening to this, you probably have no idea who I’m talking about. And...

Ep 46: Part 2- How to Work the Room

If you haven't listened to the first part of this episode, click here to catch up! Now last week, we talked about communication, but today we're going to talk about the confidence piece. We said on our last episode that you can have the gift of gab beyond anyone you know, but if you aren't confident, people won't trust you. In fact, they'll usually doubt you. And you can have all the confidence in the world but if you can't communicate effectively, you may come off as cocky or arrogant, or...


Ep 45: How to Work the Room (Part 1)

Josh is the kind of guy that can walk into a room and be friends with everyone by the end of a party. It's an awesome skill to have, and here are some of his not-s0-secret insights! A lot of this is more about how than what. 1.) Genuinely care about the interest of other people. 2.) Always start with a smile and warm greeting. 3.)

You’ve Been Punked!

Just kidding. We had some technical difficulties with this week's episode, so we found it very fitting to re-broadcast one of our favorite episodes to date: Ep 24: Vacation... When You Love to Work.

We did say #4 wasn't for everyone, and really that's because it's not for us at this stage. But for some people it is their favorite part! —— Connect with us for access to more resources...


Ep 40: “Can I Have a Discount?”

How many times do you get asked, "Do you offer discounts?" If you are like us, it is nearly constant. A few guiding principles can really help navigate the minefield of discounts. Decide at the outset what you will do so you have an answer when you get asked...and you will. The way we see it, giving back is part of business BUT we don't give a percentage discount to specific groups, because there are so many people that are worthy or a discount, and we don't want to get into picking and...


Ep 39: Taking 3 Months off of Your Business

We thought it was impossible. I couldn't even take a week off before this. 2017 we adopted our son. With Hazel we had limited maternity/paternity leave and it was something that we regretted. So if we're our own business owners, we definitely needed to make this happen. Two months for adoption, one month for surgery. It's possible! Here's how we took 3 months off of our business... -We saved $$$$ ahead of time-- importance of saving because you don't know when an emergency will make you take...


Ep 38: Producing Income Vs Online Engagement

It doesn't quite matter how many followers you have unless you can utilize them. On the flipside, you can not have many followers but have a great successful income producing business. Instagram + Facebook presence doesn't necessarily equal sales. Popular is cool but it doesn't pay the bills, and I've never been good at being popular. ------ Connect with us for access to more resources about business + life!

Ep 37: Why Business Cards?

Honestly, I loathe business cards, but Josh loves them. I pitch them in the trash as soon as I can. Josh keeps them forever and refers back to them. But it doesn't matter what we think-- it matters about who we're talking to and who we're handing them to. What are they going to do with it after we leave, and what is the best way to use business cards for impact in our business? There are two parts today: First we talk about why on earth business cards are needed in the digital age. Then...


Ep 36: In It for the Long Haul

There's always a challenge. Either you're blazing a trail with your business idea and have to show people they need you, or you have lots of competition and have to find a way to stand out. Either way we just have to prove ourselves. We stick the course when others take a break or burn out, and when others stop, we keep going.

Ep 33: What’s Your Personality Type?

It let's people know that your cognizant of what's going on, and your ability to be able to see that, and then engage on that same level socially is huge. It creates instant trust and likability. Some people would hear me say that and think "oh that's manipulating a situation," but it isn't. It's just basic human skills of social interaction. Charles J. Clarke...
