Today I’m speaking with Vincent Dickie, who helps coaches and therapists create a
more profitable online business. We’re talking about a super interesting topic, and that is the dreaded P-word - positioning.
It can seem like a scary proposition to put your stake in the ground and say “this is who I serve”, because it feels like you’re turning away work. But as Vincent details in this episode, it’s a fear worth getting over, and the benefits are endless.
In this episode we cover:
Today I’m speaking with Kevin Koskella from Workhero. Kevin turned Tri Swim Coach, his business teaching swimmers to become triathletes, into a full time, location independent, online business.

We have a super interesting conversation about a topic that is near and dear to my heart, and that is sales and marketing alignment. Marketing should generate leads, sales should close them. Simple, right? Aligned.
Well, no - it’s never that...
No guest this week, just me :) This is the audio playback of the critically acclaimed B2B Podcasting Workshop, brought to you by Content Kite (OK, maybe it’s not critically acclaimed, but it’s had great feedback!).

If you would like MORE depth, and MORE detail about this very topic, you are in luck. We’ve just completed our FREE course on B2B Podcasting. It’s a 6-parter and it is jam...
You need to know what your customers want - your business depends on it. Do they enjoy the experience of working with you? If the answer is no, that is a big, big problem. And the only way to know is to extract feedback from your customers. User experience, pricing, customer service - all things that can be drastically approved through quality customer feedback. But first, you need to get it.
Today I’m speaking with Baptiste Debever of Feedier, a customer feedback tool. Baptiste had this...
Today I’m speaking with Mikael Yang, the CEO and Founder of Manychat. Manychat is the leading messenger marketing platform for businesses and marketers. If you haven’t heard of messenger marketing, you should start learning - quick!
As Mikael outlines in this episode, the opportunities for messenger are endless. They attain an exceptionally high open rate, click rate, more people use messengers than email, they’re growing at a super high rate, and you can make a lot of money by incorporating...
“What gets measured gets managed”
These are words to live by, and yet so often they are ignored in so many facets of a business. Do you really know where your team’s time is going? Or your time for that matter? Chances are (if you’re like most other people), you are paying for hours that are not used effectively.
The solution: time tracking (as un-sexy as it sounds…)
Today I’m speaking with Dave Nevogt, the founder of Hubstaff - a time tracking tool for remote teams. Dave and I...

Ahmad is a prolific podcaster, with 2 podcasts: Forecast - an interview show, and Marketing Out Loud - a daily monologue show. Needless to say, Ahmad knows his stuff when it comes to podcasting.
In this episode we cover:
Today I’m speaking with Mark Tanner, co-founder of Qwilr. Qwilr is an online proposal and document tool with an emphasis on top-notch design. Mark and his co-founder Dylan built the tool because of a pain point they were experiencing - that creating nice looking proposals, quickly, was really hard to do. Qwilr solves that problem.
In this episode, we talk about the importance of creating great proposals that are easy to sign off digitally, but also how they grew the company and what has...

In this episode we cover:
The importance of creating processes in your business What kinds...
Today I’m speaking with Jon Buchan. Jon got drunk one night and send a cold email to senior people at big companies. And you know what? They replied - they wanted to meet with him!
Since then, Jon has been breaking all of the rules when it comes to business communication, and it has continued to work. Because it’s different. Too often people think business communication needs to be serious, to the point, direct etc. etc. Not the case, and Jon is proving it day after day. You should...

His first growth hacking book raised over $100,000 in pre-orders (and almost...
In this episode I want to do something a little different… I don’t have a guest, it’s just me. I saw a question come up in a Facebook group about starting a business from scratch and transitioning from their full time job. I found myself writing a lengthy answer, so I thought I’d do a podcast episode about it.
This episode applies to people starting from scratch, but also people who are already established but starting a new service line or offering in their current business.
Today I’m speaking with Nicholas Scalice, of Earnworthy and Landing Page School. Nicholas is an absolute expert when it comes to landing page optimization, and gives us all of the juicy goods in this episode.
To put it in perspective: if you have a page that generates $100,000 in a year, and you increase the conversion rate of that page by 20% (very achievable), then you will make $20,000 more that year. And that 20% increase could be done with some very minor tweaks - it’s powerful. It’s...
Today I’m talking with AJ Wilcox of B2Linked, a Linkedin ads agency. I’m especially excited about this episode, because Linkedin ads just aren’t something you hear about that much about. We hear plenty about Facebook ads, Adwords, PPC in general, but never about Linkedin ads.
Most people write it off as too expensive, or not something that can work for them, but AJ dispels a lot of those myths. Without giving too much away, if a customer is worth $15,000 to you or more, you’re going to...

Today I’m talking with Liston Witherill. If you’re in B2B, and you haven’t checked out Liston’s material, you should (here). He really is “the guy” when it comes to consultative selling for B2B products and services.
While there are a lot of directions we could go with this, we decided to drill down on one thing that most agency owners and consultants just don’t have in place - process.
In this episode, I’m talking with Jeff J Hunter. Jeff is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to outsourcing, delegation, project management, and Linkedin.
On this episode I'm going solo and talking about why we've decided to relaunch the show.
