Top 5 Scariest Things For Your Business (And What To Do About 'Em) w/ Andrew Cavitolo & Bobby Stern

What scares you? What brings out the fear in you during your business week? Jill and Brad reflect on what makes them shake in their boots -- from public speaking to making sales to feeling responsible for other people. So many fears, so little time. The funny part? WE ALL HAVE THEM. All the time. But what is it that makes us stay away from ever bringing them up with other people? So, they also talk about the Top 5 Scariest Things For Your Business (And What To Do About 'Em) in this episode and they welcome catering gurus Andrew Cavitolo and Bobby Stern to the show. Listen in! »

The 5 Craziest Moments In Your Business Owner Life w/ Levi Baer

Jill & Brad finally have a listener! ONE LISTENER! Who wrote in and asked a question about whether his acupuncture practice should take insurance or not from patients who come to see him. So Brad and Jill lobby this one back and forth to decide what their one listener should do with his business. And they want you to weigh in, too, because should anyone ever stop taking insurance? It gets CRAZY, so you really do need to weigh in (which also gives Jill & Brad a second listener, so thank you in advance.) Speaking of crazy, they also talk about the 5 Craziest Moments In Your Business Owner Life in this episode and they welcome conversational entrepreneur Levi Baer to the show. Listen in! »

Top 5 Ways To Have More Committed And Engaged Employees w/ Kim Cook

What’s In This Episode:

Do you need your team to be more committed? And why do you expect that anyone is ever going to be as committed as you, the owner of the business? If you believe that employees or colleagues will be as committed as you are, perhaps you have a realistic expectation that should be met by a "better" team member. On the flipside, perhaps you're putting an unreasonable burden on your team to meet your needs when they're not the ones running the business. That's why Brad and Jill talk about the Top 5 Ways To Have More Committed And Engaged Employees in this episode and they welcome Teen World Confidential's Kim Cook to the show. Listen in! »

Guest:

  • Kim Cook is the founder of Teen World Confidential where she offers adolescent sexuality health resources for parents, educators, and other caring adults that encourages honest, open, and intelligent conversation with young people. Find her on Facebook and Twitter.

Tool Intervention:

  • Jill thought she'd be presenting a really cool tool, Artisto, that cartoonizes your videos. But Brad and Saul end up staging an intervention to try and get Jill to stop using, and talking about, photo apps. Do you think she mentions too many? Tune in and then send in what you'd contribute to this intervention.
