Episode 664 – Why Online Ads Can Be More Of A Gamble Like A Slot Machine?

Gambling can be a fun personal activity but has perils when it comes to business. But all too often, businesses use advertising as a way to attract customers without realizing the full concept that they may be gambling with their profits. Slot machines are the most common casino game played because they are easy and make fun sounds (especially when you win). Scratch-off lottery tickets are readily available and can often seem like easy money. Did you know that the basic odds on a slot...

Episode 660 – If You Want To Grow Your Business – Network Better

During the last year and the world of working from home, I was blown away at all of the networking groups I was able to find online. Some of them had upwards of 100 people at a Zoom meeting. Networking has been a tool that I have used for years, but it's taught me lessons about which groups constitute great and profitable networking, and which are just wish marketing. Most people we network with will never buy from us, but how do they rank in your world as referral or power partners?. I have...

Episode 658 – To Be FRESH Content Creator You Need to Be A Consumer First

Who knew eating could be so complex? Today we have many choices. Fast food, or restaurant delivery, grocery shopping, or grocery delivery. Each has its advantages, but FRESH takes more time. If you want to deliver FRESH Content, you may need to consume great content and blend it together with your own creativity. When you eat a taco, you would not eat the tortilla, meat, lettuce, cheese, and salsa (or whatever ingredients you like) in order? You would blend them together to enjoy the mix of...

Episode 654 – Why You Need To Be Part Of The Cancel Culture?

There has been a lot of chatter about Cancel Culture lately. I am ALL FOR IT (but in a different sort of way). I am talking about you taking the time to cancel things that annoy you by disrupting your business flow or eating up unnecessary time. Some of which you have control over by subscribing to and others to which you are subscribed without your asking or permission. I want to focus on three key areas: Media or Service Subscriptions? Meetings and Networking? Notifications From Social...


Episode 653 – How To Rev Up Your Social Media Engine When The World Shifts To Neutral with Robin Wilson

Sassy is a word she likes to use to describe herself, but really words like driven, focused, and direct are closer to the flavor of cupcake that she is. Robin started SCP AGENCY in a time when no one knew this was a business. In 2013 they would ask…“Like, do people really pay you to do that?” Of course, they do! They don’t want to learn this crap; it changes faster than Cher changes costumes between sets. After snagging a business degree, Robin discovered marketing, automotive and public...


Episode 652 – Don’t Be an Icky Guy (or Gal) Find Your Purpose with Ikigai

It's hard to believe that's it's been a year that most of us have been on lockdown due to the pandemic. It has been tough on some and we all need a way to stay upbeat and redefine our purpose. There is a Japanese word, Ikigai, that means "a reason for being". The word refers to having a direction or purpose in life, that which makes one's life worthwhile, and towards satisfaction and a sense of reason. To find that purpose, it has a convergence of four key things: What Do You Love? What Are...

Episode 650 – Don’t Be Be An Inbox Clogger – Email With A Purpose

It's easy to have a full email inbox. As a business owner, you don't want to be part of somebody's full inbox, meaning your email lays unread and ultimately in the trash bin. That means you have to make your emails "Must Read" just like "Must See TV". Email newsletters are the biggest culprit of the land of unread emails. Too often they contain multiple stories, trying to appeal to a wide audience, but often when you miss the mark."If you make them choose, you often confuse." To stand out...

Episode 648 – Organized or Disorganized… That is the Question?

Did you know that the average person spends 2.5 days (60 hours) per year searching for lost items? My guess is that is even longer if you include your digital assets (emails, password, computer files, and more). If you are a solopreneur, that can easily add up to over $6000 (at $100 per hour) in lost billable time per year. If you have a team of 20 people, that could add up to over $10,000 per month in lost billable time or just simple waste! There are four things or groups that I'd like to...

Episode 646 – Using Your Inner Crystal Ball With Your Marketing Strategy

Black Magic Ball with answer Outlook not so good There is a big difference between a marketing plan and a marketing strategy.
