E224 - Updates on Interviews, using time wisely
In this episode I'm just gonna drop in some lines dropping some words you know, the usual talking to myself so I think you've probably noticed is that we are lapsing and haven't posted any new episodes recently, and that's mainly because there's been some big changes that have come and it's kept me from keeping a proper schedule, but all that's going to change all that is changing and I'm planning on making sure that these episodes keep coming. I do have a few interviews. They're coming through that have been monumental for my growth and I think it will be quite helpful for you as well to check them out. ——Sponsorship—— This podcast brought to you by our generous sponsors.

What is a funnel? Besides a funnel cake which is quite delicious, a funnel is a way to guide people through the buyer’s journey, from discovering more information to taking an informed action that genuinely benefits them.

In this episode, Joseph Villarrubia and I chat about bicycles, skateboards, martial arts and many exciting technologies that go into devising a click funnel or a sales funnel, and how Joseph can spend several hours building and tweaking them. It was a joy to speak with Joseph and we exchanged some really cool stories, so come join us on this journey and learn a bit about Joseph and his few tips on how to hack funnels.

Now I had put out a question a couple of weeks ago. And I was like, I'm planning for 2019. Is it too late? And people were like, no, it's never too late, and some of them are like, I'm already planning for the second quarter of 2019. I was like, wow, that's amazing. See, I've never planned too far ahead, and that's probably why I am where I am, Or that's why I'm not where I want to be. So planning and making goals and goal setting is some of the critical things that you can do.  Check out WordPress on http://wordpress.org  Dreamhost: https://mbsy.co/rdtQv  Anchor Platform on http://Anchor.fm  ------Sponsorship------ This podcast brought to you by our generous sponsors.

E148 - The Raw Update, Challenges, Commitments and Life in General
In this episode, I'm gonna get a lot of things off my chest. It's been pretty crazy for the past few days. So one of the things I accepted last week was the 30 days Video Challenge, 30 days of videos on LinkedIn. And my focus is on creating content, all about how to use your smartphone for video production. And there was an episode a couple months ago on the podcast about some of the tips and tricks that I talked about at the LinkedIn local Nova event. So I wanted to talk about some of the fundamental things behind something like this. So what I mean by this, what do I mean by that I'm creating content we're talking about tips talking about tips and and solutions is I find a lot of joy in it, I find that I'm helping and I love helping people and to help people to help figure out how to use devices that they already carry in their hands how to use it better Well, there's what's more join that everybody's got one so the more I think about it, the more on a perfect it and I'm might be going the wrong way a recorded several videos that I'm myself are discounting them for not being up to par to my own arbitrary standards. And I just want to focus on like the preparation that you go that the nice to go in to create this content. That preparation is almost like post production right, the execution is easy, but to find the time to strategize to figure out okay, which topic goes first, which could topic goes second, all of these things are they come to you later on as you start digging. So I'm looking to dig deep in myself and understand what it is, and how it is, I want to convey this message. http://twitter.com/hacksandhobbies http://fb.com/hacksandhobbies http://instagram.com/hacksandhobbies
