Joe and I have both spent quite a bit of time in recent weeks talking to other entrepreneurs and business owners. A common theme seemed to be a struggle when it comes to building buzz and engagement with prospects and customers. While we're not experts at brand engagement, we wanted to sit down and share some of the tips we've used to help build our brand over the [...]
Welcome to our April 2013 monthly business and income report!
While our last report was a quarterly report (focusing on Jan - Mar details) your overwhelming requests to go back to a monthly schedule have us back to reporting monthly status updates. :-)
Having moving pieces and keeping those pieces in check is a key differentiator between having a real business and being self-employed. Joe and I talk about our business systems quite often, but today we wanted to sit down with someone we know runs a well-oiled machine.

You may have noticed that Joe and I have been a bit off the radar in the last couple of weeks. In addition to taking a much-needed holiday in Thailand, we had the wonderful opportunity to present at the Dynamite Circle event in Bangkok where we were able to share our story and experiences with a remarkable group of entrepreneurs from around the world.
Both Joe and [...]
