Making The Impossible Possible (In Business)


I attended a business seminar/workshop in Cairns many years ago and during one particular exercise, we had to write down our financial goals for the upcoming year and also all the activities we would do to make it a reality. After doing this, as instructed, the presenter started messing with our heads and made us add a zero. Listen in to find out what happened next. 

Add A Zero To Your Financial Goals


Renee Hasseldine is based in Melbourne, Victoria and is the author of Share Your Passions. She helps entrepreneurs, coaches and thought leaders to unpack their thoughts and turn them into intellectual property using visual models. Many service-based businesses have value locked in their heads, which is invisible, but if this can be...

Unpack Your Thoughts Using Visual Models


I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying ‘make hay while the sun shines’, which means making the most of your opportunities while you have the chance to do so or take advantage of favourable circumstances when the time is right. This phrase originated with English farmers in the 1500’s and a hundred or so years later extended into general life and quickly became a cliché.

Make Hay While The Sun Shines

The Power Of Name Tags


I’ve had a few podcasts guests over the past month, and we’ve talked a lot about Google rankings, getting on page one and improving your SEO, which when we say SEO we mean Google. I get annoyed, and my guests shared my frustrations when we hear about businesses paying an SEO company every month and not knowing exactly what they are doing for them.

Improve Your Google Ranking With Good Content


Adam Franklin is the co-author of Web Marketing That Works, an Amazon #1 Best Seller and he is an expert when it comes to Linkedin, using video and getting the most out of your social media marketing. He is an expert in content creation, and in 2015 his blog was Australia's #1 business blog, so he knows what works and what does not. 

Why Linkedin Rules Over Other Social Media 


These days there seems to be so much focus on social media, which is why every second person you meet at a networking event is a social media marketing expert. Now don't get me wrong, I agree social media is essential, but I still think there is room for old-school traditional marketing. And the newspaper is one of those...

Whether you're a Podiatrist making orthotics, a Lawyer writing a Will, a Real Estate Agent selling a house, a Dentist or a hairdresser, we all have units of measure that are worth a particular value. This episode is all about using these units of measure as a measuring stick towards helping you decide whether you do something or not. 

The Orthotic Economy - What's Your Measuring Stick?

Marketing By Zooming Out


Every business wants more A and B clients and less C and D clients, but how do you find them? One of the best ways is to create an internal marketing survey and ask your A and B clients some simple questions. The more you can learn about you’re A and B clients, the more you’ll also learn about where you can find them, and you can use this information in your future marketing, however, there are a few rules to follow. 

7 Tips To Make Your Internal Marketing Survey A Success

BONUS EPISODE: Today I am joined by Sam Kennis, one of the owners of the Three Wolves whisky bar in Cairns, and we discuss everything from whisky selection, listening to your customers and why it is important to have a well trained knowledgeable team. His goal is to own 20 businesses by the time he's fifty years of age, and based on his current successes I think he's going to make without too much trouble. 

Success Drives Success


Dr Chris Zaino started his career as an Exercise Physiologist in 1998 and in the same year, he won Mr America. He then became a celebrity trainer for the cast of Xena Warrior Princess & Hercules television series. Life was looking rosy, and then suddenly he was struck down by a significant health problem and in a matter of 4-months went from 230lbs down to 158 lbs. By not quitting he went on to owning a huge wellness clinic and winning Mr Universe in 2016. 

People Quit Too Early 


When I owned my podiatry business in Cairns, I decided I was going to open a second location in Mackay, which was approximately 800 kilometres away. The reason I chose this location was that I wanted to determine if my business in Cairns was successful because I had developed great business systems and marketing strategies, or was it because of my reputation as a podiatrist. 

Create A Buzz by Marketing Early


Patrick McFadden is from Indispensable Marketing, and as promised on Episode 50, I was going to have Patrick back so we could talk about the subject RISE & GRIND.

Rise & Grind


Today I wanted to discuss the Butterfly Effect, which is the phenomenon whereby a minute localised change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere. Your business is a complex system, and every member of your team needs to understand how their actions can impact other team members, your clients and the long-term success of the business.  

The Butterfly Effect (& Your Team)


Patrick McFadden is the owner of Indispensable Marketing and today we discuss the importance of effective marketing and how it can make your sales process easier, or harder depending on how effective it is, and why advertising and sales are sub-sets of marketing. Advertising is often confused with marketing because it is the most visual part of marketing, but...

Today I am joined by Dave Frees, and we discuss Force Multipliers, which is a refers to a factor or a combination of factors that dramatically increases (hence "multiplies") the effectiveness of an item or group. In the military, force multipliers give troops the ability to do far more and to be more effective against an enemy than without it; however, the same principles apply to business.

My background is podiatry and just like a lot of other service-based businesses in the health and finance industries, what we offer, or should I say what we sell, because that’s exactly what we do, cannot be seen, it is basically invisible.

Gerlinda Stella is a Personal Stylist based in Cairns, Australia and she has travelled extensively through the United States, Europe and Asia, and she knows all the rules when it comes to style, but she also knows when to break the rules.

Daniel Gefen lives in Israel and is the author of a book titled The Self-Help Addict and today we talk about what makes some people successful and others not so successful.
