“Not seeing color” isn’t an option for some of us. Whether we like it or not, the experience of minority groups is different. But that’s not always a bad thing. In fact, being different can be an asset. Overcoming the challenges unique to POC can make you the kind of entrepreneur who’s uniquely qualified to navigate other challenges. Business — esp…

The first challenge of e-commerce: keeping track of inventory. It can be a nail-biting affair to predict exactly how much product to order or create, without knowing exactly how much people will buy. Too much, and you lose money on overhead. Too little, and you lose money on lost sales and slow fulfillment. How do you strike the right balance? It’s…

Company policies: do they uphold your principles and offer a guidepost for how your team conducts business? Or are they just fluff? We all know that the only real rules are the ones that actually get enforced. Is it realistic — or even necessary — to have hard-and-fast policies? Do your policies keep your team grounded and in line with company valu…

One of the biggest reasons for unsubscribes: too many emails. Of course, one of the biggest reasons for slow sales is not enough emails. So how many is enough? What’s the Goldilocks Zone for email frequency? Healthy open and click rates are the key to online marketing. Even in the age of social, email is still the highest-converting way to reach ou…

The written word: it’s still your most powerful tool for creating online traffic. But sometimes, you have to stimulate that traffic by getting your thoughts onto someone else’s site. The question is, why would anyone let you? Guest posting was huge for our business in its early days. By posting on more popular sites, Omar was able to build a founda…

In business, you have to play the hand you’re dealt. In the age of COVID, that means moving traditionally IRL activities online. Sometimes that works out. Sometimes…not as much. Following up on our episode about why we chose to hold a virtual retreat, today we discuss the results. Our online “retreat week” just ended, and we learned a few things. S…

Think of yourself as a coach, and watch your team win. Too many team leaders act as “managers.” But think about how we use that term outside of business. We “manage” problems, difficulties. Our employees are neither. Instead, our employees are investments — and they can only deliver returns when we bring out the best in them. Ruchira Chaudhary is a…

In episode 26 of the MINDSET ZONE podcast where the topic was “Do People Really Change?”, I spoke about a Greek philosopher called Heraclitus who said: "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." Heraclitus believed everything is in constant flow, everything always changes. I thought about thi…

Marketing isn’t just about what brings customers to your door. It’s what brings customers together that counts. When your business model includes some element of a movement, you do better than creating leads and sales. You create a sense of community that drives long-term brand loyalty, and full-blown evangelism for your brand. In other words, your…

What’s a symbol worth? When you start a business, you start lean. That means making careful choices about where to spend your marketing dollars. When it comes to branding, how important is the company logo? How much is really worth investing when you have plenty of other costs?

Peloton is one of the most successful fitness business models ever. How did they pull it off? Exercise equipment comes and goes. Most of the time, companies that sell in-home workout machines have terrible churn, as New Years’ resolutions become next year’s regrets and laundry starts to pile up on the treadmill. What makes Peloton different? Peloto…

Hi [First Name], Do your cold emails…work? Most people’s don’t. That’s because writing cold emails is different from any other kind of copywriting. If you want results, you have to craft emails in a way that strikes the right tone — and doesn’t come off as a phony attempt to be personal. Fortunately, we have an expert on that.

Take a cue from the tortoise. Slow & steady is the way forward. Entrepreneurship is not a sprint; it’s a marathon. In fact, it’s not even a race — it’s a lifestyle! And slower growth is the most stable kind of growth. Instead of fretting that you’re not an overnight (or over-week, or over-year) success, take a breath, and realize that’s probably a …

Blogging is still one of the most effective (and cost-effective) kinds of content marketing. But does frequency matter? If so, how often should you post? It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping a relatively new blogger figure out how much content to pump out. In 6 months, this blogger hasn’t seen the needle move much. Does it make a difference if you…

If you don’t listen to your customers, you’ll lose them. Just as true: if you listen too much to your customers…you’ll lose them. Feedback matters. What your customers say should help guide your product development, or you won’t be competitive for long. But you can’t please everybody — and you can’t let yourself be blown around like a leaf in the w…

I can’t stop focusing on focus. First it was the interview with Omar Zenhom – episode 35 of this podcast titled “Focus To Succeed“ Then, it was last show – episode 36 – about “Focus Without Focus.” Today, I decided to speak about “Unfocus to Focus.” During my conversation with Omar, he spoke about an interesting phenomenon that happens when we are …
 
We love teachers. As the founders of a webinar platform (and former educators), we live and breathe coaching, training, and consulting as a business model. Our experience in that realm is what brought us into the webinar game, and continues to guide our development. But at some point, our good ol’ Omar had to hang up his consulting hat. Today, Omar…

You’ve hit a plateau. Whether your business is new, established, or even getting close to the endgame, anyone can get stuck. Surprisingly, it’s often because of this one thing. When you’ve looked into everything — sales, marketing, advertising — and you just can’t figure out what’s got your wheels spinning, there’s a very good chance it’s this. It’…
