Intro

 

Podcasting, the Right Way

  • Every day, you’ve got an opportunity to improve your skill
  • No matter what the mission of your podcast is, you can create a connection with your audience and what they care about
  • If you’re gonna be a guest on a podcast, familiarize yourself with the podcast style/audience
  • Doug hopes that everyone who listens has been slightly offended in their own way haha
  • Having guests on your show that you just don’t click with is normal
    • You’ve got the option to not upload a show if you feel it didn’t go well
  • Make sure that you communicate what you expect from your guest and for your audience

 

Closing Lines

  • Saying what’s true may be awkward at first, but it’ll be helpful!

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Franchising, when compared to the economy, has always been relatively stable
  • If you don’t do your due diligence, it’s not wise to just dive into a financial commitment

 

Doing What’s Right, Not Hot

  • The question should be: “what’s the hottest franchise for you?”
  • If you're not a people person, you probably shouldn’t get a customer-based franchise
  • You’ve got to be confident in the system that you’re buying into
  • Having been in middle or upper management can work to your advantage when considering the franchise business
  • Before you start to franchise your store, you’ve got to be sure that what you have can be sold and can be formed into a system
  • Try opening up a second location before diving into a franchise
  • Make sure that the people you bring onto your team are a good fit, because they can make or break your business’ future

Intro

  • Keeping your client number low can help you keep a personal feel in your product delivery
  • Getting a client on the phone or meeting in person will give you a platform to show your personable side

 

Do What You Do

  • When you’re a solo parent, there are many ways to find balance! Do what works for you
  • Rollin’ up your sleeves and working side by side with your staff/clients creates a positive work environment
    • Knowing your clients personally, can create a strong community around you
  • Allowing your customers to personalize their event will make it more memorable for them
  • The one thing that’ll make you a better individual is to be the most ethical person you can be

 

Closing Lines

  • Write down your business ethics and stick to them
  • It’s better to have a small amount of strong relationships than it is to have a large amount of weak ones

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Today’s it’s all things customer experience, you may or may not know the term, but you certainly will know how important it is after you listen to my friend and fellow entrepreneur, podcaster and all around nice guy Pat Purdue share his story today on The Nice Guys on Business, welcome to the podcast Pat! Here are some of teh questions Pat answers today:

  • How does a "Customer Experience" differ from Customer Service?
  • What is a "Customer Experience Mindset" and what does this means in real life for an entrepreneur?
  • What brands today understand this? I  mean I think companies like SouthWest Air, Zappos, Ritz Carlton do.
  • Why don’t most companies work towards this? Does it cost more, involve greater training? Why not do this with all companies?
  • Sounds like management needs to give up some control (and put it in the hands of the front line) to make this a reality, do you see it the same way?
  • How can a small company looking to grow get their customers to create some of the BUZZ about a great customer experience. Seems like this would be the ultimate in promo for your company?

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Ask for references!
  • Build your resume through extra certifications and get more experience

 

Life Coach vs. Business Coach

  • Life coaching is more direct and more about accountability than business coaching
  • The key to success once you’ve hired a coach, is results
    • Results that you’ve defined with your coach, in detail
  • The coach needs to really get into the hearts of his/her clients
    • Keep an open line of communication to allow for revisions
  • Being an entrepreneur = working overtime
  • One of the key mistakes is not understanding your numbers - what expansion looks like/costs, etc.
  • Another big mistake is not networking enough
  • No one does this -- i.e. entrepreneur, business, career etc. -- alone
  • Consistency is in the top three factors that get you to your goals

 

Closing Lines

  • Having a coach is not for everyone
    • Control freaks? Nope.
    • You need a desire to learn and improve
  • Understand your cash flow
  • Network more!

  • It’s easier to focus on other people’s pain and focus on that rather taking care of what matters most. You.

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • There’s nothing wrong with leading a company culture that is a required taste
  • Yes, there is such a thing as a brand dominatrix

 

Call Bullshit

  • The best brands in the world are the ones that say something unique about their users
  • The essence of branding is the following:
    • What does it say about a person when they use or patronize this brand?
    • How does this brand make itself indispensable?
    • What is the specific role that this brand plays in their life?
  • You are the hero in your own story!
  • People need to feel something emotionally before making a decision
  • You’ve got a brand whether you like it or not
    • Make your North Star your ideal customer

 

Closing Lines

  • Your brand has to be different in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life
  • There’s no PhD required to build a brand with great essence

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • What is an “empowerment strategist”? You’re about to find out
  • There is a version of Moby Dick with emojis! How millennial generation-esk

 

The Day-to-Day Struggle

  • If you say, “Life is fine,” chances are there’s something that needs to change
  • Be smart and ask for help when you need it
  • Honor yourself and your purpose. Take care of you, first.
    • Watch what you’re internal monologue is
  • Instead of pushing away the emotions that you deem negative, welcome them and accept that you’re experiencing them
  • Believe in what you’re doing, because people can tell when you do/don’t
  • If someone else has done what you want to do, you can do it

 

Closing Lines

  • Doing what you love requires dealing with minutiae

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Being a “Nice Guy” is treating people the way that you want to be treated

 

Sizing You and Your Company Up

  • Having trouble deciding how to create your company? Ask yourself…
    • Would you hire it?
    • Would you work for it?
    • Would you be proud to own it?
  • You’ve got to go through the hiccups of creating a good team
  • If you’re committed to five star service, ask your customer or potential customer:
    • What would 5 star service look like to you?
    • That is you empowering the customer
    • That is also you getting the right answers
  • Talking about how great you are, is a quick way to lose people
  • Rise and repeat is the strongest way to build a business
    • Find out what works. Do it again and again.

 

Closing Lines

  • Key for a viral campaign:
    • Excellent content
    • Excellent distribution
    • New eyes
    • Speed of relevance

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

Intro

  • Social media platforms are all about storytelling
  • Unscripted videos give more of an organic/conversational feel
  • Planning out your message in your video is a smart way to go

Exposing Yourself… We mean your Brand, to the Public

  • Emotions leap out much more on video than on print
  • You’ve got to be thoughtful and organized
    • The creativity will follow
  • There are different video styles for different purposes
    • Trying to hit an emotion? Live action piece
    • Getting a technical point across? Motion graphics
    • Telling a story? Animation
  • Video is the hot, now thing.
    • What’s next, Virtual Reality? To be continued…
  • Video doesn’t have to be expensive to be good

 

Closing Lines

  • Don’t be afraid of the technology

Intro

  • Sometimes we are our own worst enemy in regards to executing goals
  • We’re putting too much time and energy into things that don’t matter
  • Don’t get caught up in the desire to be the next Elon Musk, but rather on what daily task are you taking to get to your goal

Just Do It

  • We work so hard on the things that are out of our control
    • Stop doing that
  • Are the things you’re doing lining up with what you want to focus on?
  • Take some time to define the North Star of your goals
  • Ryan balances his faith, family and fitness which keeps him focused… what are you balancing?
  • You’ve got to know what actions make you successful - emailing, cold calling etc.
    • Then do that more
  • Trust your gut instinct, live in your ‘now’

Closing Lines

  • So many people don’t think positively about themselves, which severely limits them
  • When you’re stuck in your head, you’re not in your zone of genius
    • Use. Your. Gut.
