Golden Nuggets from Episode:

  1. It’s easier to maintain discipline when you keep your goals clear, concise, and simple. 
  2. There’s a HUGE difference between being “busy” and being PRODUCTIVE. 
  3. If you don’t enjoy the task, then outsource it to someone who can do it faster and better than you so you can focus on the things you’re passionate about. 
  4. It’s okay to not be a great speaker/podcaster in the beginning. You are probably going to struggle in the beginning, but as long you practice consistently, you WILL get better!
  5. Be genuine when approaching potential podcast guests. Nobody likes a sleezy copy and paste message from people they don’t even know.
