We are BACK, baby!

After a long 5-week trip through SEAsia, Joe and I are finally back in Davao City and sat down to discuss some of the takeaways from our trip. We were able to sit down for coffee beers with many of you and came away with some amazing experiences and connections.

6 Important Business Takeaways

We also had a chance to attend the Dynamite Circle meetup in Bangkok and were on a panel discussing podcasting with our friends (Left To Right) Dan Andrews, Terry Lin, Chris Ducker, James Schramko (credit for photo!), and Tim Conley.

We wanted to share some of the learning experiences and takeaways from our trip with you in this episode with the hope that it will help you as you continue to grow your business.

  1. Hey

    6 out of 7 of those guys do my favorite podcast !!!

    Looks like you all had a blast

    And yes if you have principles stick to them until somebody can show you they are bad for other people. After all George W Bush has principles !!

  2. Hi guys .

    It was pleasure to finally meet you in DCBKK . You rocked the podcasting panel .
    For me masterminds have made huge difference . The Friday’s session where I had the privilege to sit on the table with James Schramko or earlier this year I had the honour to attend one of Chris Duckers masterminds . These experiences have shaped the way I look my business and gave an actionable plan I am starting to execute .

    Nice meeting you again ,

    Be healthy and smile !

    Great EP guys, I especially loved the part about the “principles” at the end. What’s the point of wealth if you can’t use it to behave (and create organizations) in a way that represent what you want to see more of in the world?

    • A big sticking point for Justin that I have come around on as well. It just makes sense, if you’re going to have principles, you better stick to them.

    • Justin Cooke says:

      Thanks, Dan! I think I’d like to do an entire episode on following your principles in your business. It’s probably not groundbreaking, but what we’ve seen is that you really don’t have to wiggle your way around your principles, “be evil”, etc. In fact, you’re more likely to add problems to your business if you try…
