The Nice Guys on Business

At first listen, it may not sound like they are talking business, but there is no denying the Nice Guys (Doug Sandler and Strickland Bonner) know their audience. If you are an entrepreneur and tired of hearing the same old rah rah static babble on all the other business podcasts out there, it's time for a breath of fresh air. Listen in, subscribe, or join the Nice Guy Community and become a Funk'nFan of the show. Relationships, honesty, trust and integrity build business today and that's what the Nice Guys are all about. Top industry experts interviewed, behind the scenes. Sometimes raw, sometimes explicit, always fun and informative. Looking for canned questions, short format and conversations in a box....this podcast ain't for you.

Anna is still out sick, it's really late, and I didn't get a single shout out from my Tuesday notes where I specifically asked for someone to reach out to me so I still don't believe that anyone reads these. Because of that, you get no notes today, no notes for YOU!

Travis Johnson's company Affixol is working to become a household name and they can help your company too. Hear all about it on the Nice Guys Today

Do you spend enough time with your customers, are you creating enough content to keep them engaged and are you engaging them properly. The key to success, according to our Nice Guys guest today, Travis Johnson is fully coming to terms that even small business can compete with the big boys out there. And you can do it without going broke. Here to talk about customer loyalty and how your customer and social media outreach can be better than a disorganized mess, welcome Travis to The Nice Guys.

Here are the questions you'll hear today:

Spend time talking about about customer loyalty. Is it more than just delivering great service?

What percentage of your time would you say is fair for someone on their own to spend on creating content, versus using this content to market?

What channels are most effective today for your organization?

Do you work well within LinkedIN, Facebook Twitter or are there better areas to practice?

What is coming next in the world of marketing content?

From everything I am reading social media will be the vehicle by which most customer care is delivered. Too exposed, too open or do you think the worlds of social proof and customer service are coming together?

 

Check out Travis' company at www.affixsol.com and use the promo code "Niceguys" to get your setup fee waived!

Today, show notes are NOT done by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren. She's not gone, just sick so I'm (Strickland) stuck doing the show notes. Around 7 minutes we do a really funny take on Sean Spicer, but we recorded it 1.5 weeks ago so it's a bit dated now. Then we spend the rest of the ep. showing how fucking old we are and you know what? I've gotten rediculously spoiled having Anna write our show notes, it's 12:37 AM and I'm still editing this audio, and I don't feel like writing these notes. Does anyone read them anyway?? I don’t think so, but if you are reading this please reach out to me @NiceGuyonBiz and let me know that you are reading the notes, and you do care. Wait, I don't actually look at Twitter, so that won't do you any good. Try posting to the Facebook group instead and tag me, I might actually see that. Actually, even better- Post something to www.patreon.com/NiceGuys and let me know. You will have to be a patron to do this, but come on you can be a patron for as little as $1.00/month? We post about 25 episodes a month, so If you even listen to 2-3 of those in a month isn't that worth a lousy dollar????? OK, enough of that. Well, maybe not, we're really just trying to get us to $250.00/month so we can pay Anna. She writes all of these show notes 5 TIMES A WEEK and right now she does it FOR FREE!!!!! If you're reading this you've obviously seen her notes, but with $83 in Patreon donations currently, we can’t even pay for the hosting and our other hard costs. We love Anna and we really want to pay her, but we have no money right now, so PLEASE just donate $1, $2, $10, SOMETHING!!!!! Don't lie, we only have 19 patrons and we get over 2000 downloads per episode so we know that most of you are NOT donating. Seriously, we're not trying to get rich on this podcast (at least not yet) we're just trying to get Anna paid. OK, that's my late night rant that looks like a Chuck Lorre vanity card. Thanks for reading all the way through.

 

PS- Definitely NOT Spamalot. If you don't know what that means, that's because you are not a Patreon patron and/or you haven't heard the Week of 4/24 bonus material. If you are a patron, go listen now. If not, donate $1 or 2 or more. Thanks.

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Today the ultimate reboot -- how cool to think we can reboot to Happy

Technology -- when we are talking self driving cars and balloons in space to improve web connectivity...these are the topics of the day. Internet in remote places and cars driving themselves. And Mo Gawdat knows this better than anyone. Mo is the Chief Business Officer at Google X, these are his projects and his responsibility. And for close to a decade, Mo has worked on projects like these, but this is not the most significant thing he works on. Mo is also a writer, it’s no surprise in my research of Mo his book, Solve for Happy is YES a book about happiness, but really it’s a formula for engineering your path to it. Welcome Mo, to the Nice Guys on Business.

Mo -- can you use logic and problem solving to determine a formula for happy? It does not seem like there is a formula -- more of a feeling -- how do you measure a feeling?

Alright Mo -- give me the happiness equation

Change the world -- start with your heart -- Talk about your son as an inspiration

Let’s talk about mindset -- don’t we have these tapes that control us? How do we fix these tapes?

Share some of the illusions that we believe in that hold us back from being happy?

Sergey and Larry (the google founders) -- They are behind you on this project and of you taking time to make the people of earth happy. I think it would be a great idea to tell them The Nice Guys on Business rocks.

Talk about your engineer’s approach to Happy

We feel happy when life goes our way and we are sad when it doesn’t meet our expectations -- seems pretty simple, change your expectations. Is it that simple?

What will help you make a difference in this world?

Why do you care Mo, some people might say this is easy for you, big position at Google, live the good life, you could go your way and not look back -- why is this your mission?

Buy Mo's book- Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy

Intro --

  • Age is just a number
  • As we do get older, you ask yourself where you want to be and are you there

 

 

Uncovering the Questions --

  • Coaching is partly motivation and partly teaching
  • Life is not a destination, it's a journey... corny but trueee
  • Without planning, there's a lot of randomness that might work against you
  • As consumers, we are swimming up stream in a lot of ways
  • Financial Planning involves being creative and perhaps playing a game to keep it interesting 

 

 

Closing Lines --

 

  • Trust your gut
  • The sooner you start, the better

Intro

  • If you’re living in the future, it’s very hard to see what’s in front of you
  • In any important communication activity, you need to define your goal

 

Know, Feel and Do

  • Repetition, reflection and feedback is how we get better
  • The more relatable you are, the easier it is to have a conversation with somebody
  • Coming off perfect, puts up a barrier with you and your audience

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Give me a P! Give me an A! Give me a… forget it. Just go to Patreon
  • Money is an agreement that people live by
  • Hilary is passionate about empowering people

 

Those Benjamin Franklins

  • A big common misconception is that earning money in your business is enough
  • It takes money and time to start a business
  • Many business owners don’t pay themselves a market wage
  • Document and create repeatable systems in your business
  • You need a credit score if you want to acquire loans
  • 30% of our spending occurs in large sums
  • Everyone has a core belief in money

 

Closing Lines

  • In a free market economy, you’re in charge of the amount of money you obtain
  • The number 1 thing that determines wealth is an internal locus of control
    • Meaning that an individual believes that they’re in control

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Anytime content is personalized for you, algorithms are at work
  • Who should own all of the info that algorithms can find?

Your Business is Everyone’s Business

  • The protection over internet privacy is becoming weaker and weaker
  • An algorithm is a step of process
    • For example, if A happens with B, then there’s a high possibility it equals C
  • Algorithms can connect you with things you may have never found but can enrich your life
    • If could potentially provide you with suggestions that could help you make better choices
  • No matter what benefits there are, people’s preferences should be respected

Closing Lines

  • Figuring out where the lines are, is just as important as the technology development
  • Check out Jen’s TED Talk

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

Here's what you can learn today:

Talk about the steps to innovate --

  • one of them is STOP asking for opinions,
  • build a better box,
  • hire people you don’t like (meaning not like you)
  • stop praising people -- praise for taking risk
  • expertise is the enemy of innovation

Are you a creative person by nature or is this a learned behavior?

Do you develop your entire business plan on your differentiation?

Your client list is like a who’s who in the Fortune 500 world -- Nike Dell Honda, J and J Microsoft. They believe in this stuff. Are you a corporate guy gone rogue or are you seeing this being the trend?
