The Power of The Company You Keep KDS: 034

The Power of the Company You Keep. This has been on my mind a lot the last few weeks. It's been an overarching theme over the last couple of years as some relationships ended, new ones were formed, and old relationships kindled. I have a feeling this episode might go a little old school as well as getting a little deep, so buckle up and let's dive into it. A Little Context First I recently went to an in-person Mastermind that was hosted by a friend of mine (more on that in a bit). The event...


Behind the Scenes with Troy Dean – Going Deeper KDS: 033

I knew after doing the last episode where I shared the Mavericks event I attended in Santa Monica that I wanted to go deeper with Troy Dean on the growth of WP Elevation and the launch of Mavericks. I've known Troy for a while now (I'm thinking 5-6 years?) and watching the growth of what they've created has been inspiring. But I know it wasn't without struggles and challenges along the way, which is what I wanted to talk about (and of course the wins too). For those of you who aren't...


Troy Dean, Mavericks Club, and My Week in Santa Monica KDS: 032

Last week was one of those amazing weeks that leaves you both excited and exhausted. O.K., I wasn't exactly exhausted, but the activity in my brain was on high-speed most of the week, which leaves you needing a little 'white space' to bring it back to a manageable pace. I spent the week in Santa Monica, California with Troy Dean and some of his team for his Mavericks Club event as well as the one-day event for WP Elevation on Saturday (after the Mavericks Club event was over). If you haven't...


Who Cares If Your Ideal Client Likes Coffee… and Other B.S. with Michelle Hunter – KDS: 031

This interview with Michelle Hunter was way overdue. And SO very good! Michelle and I connected last fall and had an amazing interview... that never quite got published (life was a little crazy last year, there was an issue with the audio and well, here we are, in March of 2019). I asked Michelle if we could do a live stream instead of simply an audio interview because I knew once people heard her genius there would be great engagement and questions. I wasn't mistaken. I went ahead and had...


Driving Traffic & Gaining Customers Without Spending A Dime on Advertising with Tom Morkes KDS: 030

Tom Morkes is the epitome of what he teaches. He's a massive relationship builder and without a doubt, one of the nicest, most genuine people I've had the good fortune of connecting with (and now consider a friend). Tom and I connected a few years back when he was working directly with entrepreneurs to help them publish and launch their books. He would connect me with one of his authors if they were a good fit for my audience and I would interview them for the podcast. We would hop on Skype...


A Real & Raw Conversation with Lorraine McNulty KDS: 029

I've been talking about mixing up the podcast for a while, but I wasn't sure what that would look like. When I started paying attention to what I was listening to and what I liked, it wasn't necessarily the interview style shows. I'll continue doing interviews still, but probably a little less frequently. This conversation came about after I was having a private message with my friend Lorraine McNulty on Facebook Messenger. I had witnessed something in my Facebook Group that didn't sit well...


Paid Traffic for Content Promotion with Daniel Daines-Hutt KDS: 027

Daniel Daines-Hutt was one of those people that completely over-delivered as a guest on the podcast. I'd love to tell you that this always works out swimmingly, but it doesn't. In the case of Daniel not only did he completely over-deliver on the show, but I think it's safe to say we've become friends and I look forward to growing this friendship. Daniel got started online with e-commerce and found he was really good at marketing and digital strategy, which actually allowed him and his...


Using Content in A Follow-up Sequence with Jason Resnick KDS: 026

Jason Resnick is another one of the people who I'm super grateful has come into my world. I've known of Jason for a long time and don't know why we hadn't connected yet (you know what I'm talking about right? How many times do you get a friend request and think "we weren't already connected?"). We finally hopped on a call at the end of last year and he's been amazing. Jason has many skills when it comes to online business, but I really wanted to dive in with him to talk about automation, in...


SEO For The Rest of Us – Live With Brendan Hufford KDS: 025

Brendan Hufford isn't a stranger to the podcast (you can listen to the first episode we did here. I think I may have to have him on as a regular ;-) ), so when he mentioned he was launching his SEO course (finally, and no, that's not a dig at him, but his teaching is a breath of fresh air) and I asked if we could jump on a live stream and share what he was doing. I knew he'd be game and he didn't disappoint. Brendan is great at educating and sharing through stories. [click_to_tweet...


When A Failed Kickstarter Leads To A Successful Product KDS: 024

Nothing like starting the New Year off with a failed success, right? I know, that's a bit of an oxymoron, but hang with me, it will make sense. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of so-called 'failures' (and yes, I'm one of those people that believes all failures happen for a reason and they're not really a failure as long as we learn from them), but it's rare that we get to see those failures turn around so quickly. Or that it wasn't a failure at all ... it was simply a wrong turn. Let me...


2018: I Happily Bid Thee Adieu – Year In Review KDS: 023

There were so many different ways I thought about approaching my year-in-review post and podcast this year. 2018, like the two years before, wasn't what I would call smooth sailing. I was tempted to title this episode something more like "Peace Out 2018"... but changed my mind. As happy as I am to see 2018 go, it's hardly a year worth writing off. I can honestly say that this year has brought me more clarity than any other year in business (probably in my life for that matter). Fortunately,...


Kajabi President JCron Joined Me LIVE to Talk All Things Kajabi KDS: 022

To say I was excited about this interview would be an understatement. I'm joined by Kajabi President Jonathan Cronstedt, also known as 'JCron'. I literally remember anxiously waiting for "New Kajabi" to release in late 2015 (it literally launched in December of 2015). It felt like the longest launch ever, but only because of the way they shared the behind-the-scenes journey and process of getting the new platform ready to use. Even though I knew I was going to be jumping in when they finally...


Interview with Brendan Hufford on SEO & Content Marketing KDS: 021

Brendan Hufford is one of those people... You know the kind I'm referring to. They show up out of the blue (well, what feels like out of the blue) and you instantly like them. Brendan showed up in my Facebook group, Content Creators, and gave a fabulous in-depth response to a question about SEO. I was humbled by his 'give' in the group and instantly asked him if he'd be willing to do a live stream about SEO, to which he said yes. Brendan completely over-delivered on the live stream, it went...


My FOMO, A Physical Product & Kickstarter KDS: 020

I know I can't be the only person who is a little floored that we're down to only 7 weeks left in 2018. This year has flown by (thankfully, it's been a rough year and an amazing year all at the same time). In many ways, I think this year has prepared me for everything that's coming, in a good way. The clarity I have in my business is unlike anything else I've felt, and I know this because of the level of focus I have right now. Victor Hugo said it best, "Nothing is as powerful as an idea...


Scaling Your Webinar with Joel Erway KDS: 019

I first heard Joel Erway speak on a live stream in the Funnelytics Facebook Group and he was talking about something I do and would like to get better at, which is webinars. During that live stream, I immediately commented to Joel that I would love to have him on the podcast, he said yes, we coordinated, recorded... and then my life went sideways. This took way too long to publish but you're in for a real treat. Like many other entrepreneurs, Joel's path to his webinar agency was anything...


Growing A Digital Agency with Paul Lacey KDS: 018

Paul Lacey is one of those people that once you get to know him you feel like you've known him forever (or wish you had). I felt like I could have talked to Paul for hours, but since we're a good 8 hours apart I thought it would be nice to let him enjoy the rest of his evening. Paul is one of the brilliant minds at Dickiebirds Studio as well as creating amazing themes for GeneratePress and now... he's creating something amazing for Beaver Builder! ROWS! We recorded this a while ago and at...


Slowing Down to Get There Faster KDS: 017

I've had a handful of conversations with friends lately who are dealing with frustration and challenges in their business. It feels like they're doing everything right: they're busy, they're doing the work, and yet they're still stuck on a hamster wheel. Tell me if this sounds familiar: You're creating content You're promoting your content You've started building a community You're really good at what you do (you're not lacking in skills) You've put together some offers ... nothing is...


Profiting with Relationship Funnels: Interview with Landon Porter KDS: 016

This is one of those episodes where I highly recommend you get a pen & paper ready or open a note-taking tool, you're going to need it. Landon Porter, of "Getting Clients Without Being Salesy" joins me on the podcast and we go deep into where marketing is heading and why 'old school marketing' methods aren't working the way they used to (can I get an Amen?). Landon and I connected earlier this year and I'm super grateful we did (although it may have been the end of 2017 now that I think of...


Talking Design with Piccia Neri of DesignGeeks KDS: 015

Publishing this episode is long overdue. Piccia and I recorded this months ago (I'm catching up on the backlog). The beauty of this though is that it doesn't matter... everything Piccia talked about is timeless, relevant, and will help you get your design skills up to speed. Piccia and I connected years ago (I can't quite remember exactly... think it was 4 or 5 years ago, but we didn't really get to know each other until this year). Piccia has an amazing background, which I realized I didn't...


Content Repurposing & My Wakeup Call KDS: 014

I think this is the first time I've started writing out my podcast post (for a solo show) without a title. For anyone who writes regularly (or somewhat regularly), you probably have your own writing process and flow for how you do things. For me, I usually have a headline in mind that will dictate the flow of the post. Not today. I have a few things I wanted to talk about in today's episode so we'll see where this takes us. An Update On The Personal Side For those of you who have been with...
