How can we decrease the volume of fear in our head and increase our feeling of confidence?

How to be a Lifetime Creative in a World Where Work Gets Stolen (FS221)

Image sparkline_social_fb_2.gif

Recently we’ve experienced some work being stolen. Creative ideas getting plucked up and sold elsewhere without attribution. This isn’t new for us. Nor is it new for many who do work online. In creative work there is often this risk that ideas or product can be stolen, used elsewhere by other people. In fact, you may have heard that old adage great artists steal, which is to say that much of your own creative work may be have been heavily influenced by other work that came before you.

Image vanessa-van-edwards-interview-841x493.jpg

Doesn’t matter what surf board you’re riding, if the wave is too small it can’t generate enough lift to catch your board and make it flow. The same is true with your marketing. If you can’t generate a large enough swell with your website, your emails, your headlines, your social media, your customers WON’T catch your waves. I call this resonance. The deeper you can resonate with your customers, the more effective everything is. And today on the show we have, what I call, a resonance expert. (BTW, Steph is on vacation with her family and will return next week for a proper Fizzle Show episode on how to be CEO of your business… drawing on insights from this conversation as well as… Read Entire Story

The Inception of a Wildly Successful Lifestyle Business (FS210)

Image john-dana-shultz-minimalist-baker-interview-841x493.jpg

I’d venture to say that most of us, when we think about a “successful business” we’d want to create, it will look like what is known as a lifestyle business. These are the kinds of businesses where your business serves your life, not the other way around. And with the tools of the internet and extremely affordable training like Fizzle’s Courses, this kind of business has become a real, viable approach to revenue earning and wealth creation. BUT — and this is a big but here — it’s still a difficult path. Becoming a doctor is a viable path for you as well, but we all know it ain’t easy. You don’t just “fall into” becoming a doctor. Now, though it’s true that … Read Entire Story

10 Excellent Niche Business Examples to Learn From (FS209)

Listen, there is a TON of competition in business today. The internet, which enables all of our personal businesses like never before, also makes it so now you compete with the entire world. But, we have a powerful tool at our disposal: specialization, focus, narrowing our target market, aiming at a smaller business niche. Now, if you’re already selling a bunch of product successfully — if your storehouse and bank account is full! — well then, you probably don’t need to specialize any more… it’s working, you’ve got it, well done. But, for many of us — especially those of us who are still getting our businesses off the ground — specialization, aiming at a smaller niche, focusing… Read Entire Story
