Today, we're diving into something that's way way overdue, and I get a lot of questions about. That is part 1 of a new two-part series on "How to Maintain High-Performance Health During Business Travel". This part one segment includes a special tip I haven't shared anywhere else. A tip that could reduce your hotel room noise by over 30%, help you sleep better on the road, be more comfortable and more.


In the feature segment, I'm going to talk to you about something most others won't. Something big firms, HR departments, recruiters, test labs and governments don't like to you to think about....


But it's big business for them, and big risk for YOU, and you should know what you're up against.


So we're going to dive into.......BACKGROUND CHECKS. What they are, what you need to know, how to protect yourself since now all the background checkers are getting hacked——with *your* information. I'm talking the United States Government: Twice that WE know about. But I don't want to just pick on my government, because it's happening to anyone who has your info.


But as serious and ominous or "gloomy" as that may sound, this is a positively *bangin'* show. I want you to be informed, enabled, equipped, and engaged. I share 12+ tips to help you decide when——and if——you'll participate in a background check.


And in the Bangin' Your Productivity Segment, I'm covering a couple highly-useful tools which can make web browsing easier, clean up the screen, and get you reading instead of clicking all over the screen to stop all the drama and just read the darn article!


Yep, got a lot to talk about - mr. announcer man, HIT IT!

What do incline boards, losing (or gaining) client opportunities, website hosting, client attraction have in common?

They're all related to questions asked by listeners and business colleagues. Because this is...Q&A catch-up episode! I'm going to try and answer at least 5 questions from the queue (they're piling up, but keep them coming) and we'll see how far I get.

We'll be bangin' your health today with an inexpensive, but highly versatile liquid which can remove acne, clean your system, help digestion, smooth up your skin, clean out the system gunk and much more.

Bangin' Your Productivity returns this week with one of my favorite new calendar / task tools. I've been using it every day for about 5 weeks now and am loving it.

As always, lots and lots to cover so let's do this!

Full show notes and details here:

Full show notes:

What if I told you that you could increase your productivity 200% or more? ... Yes, really!

Or master a challenging skill like getting a black belt in taekwondo in 1 or 2 years less than average, but with even fewer training sessions?

Or on the consulting front, how about delivering more client value in less time, and with far fewer distractions?

Well these are all possible and much more. And in today's feature segment I'm super pumped to be joined by special guest Tor Refsland, the time management chef!

Let's go!

[Exclusively for Bangin' Your Business Listeners: Tor has an exclusive gift for you. I encourage you to grab it before he changes his mind. I can't believe he's giving away this much productivity-boosting power!]

You've heard episodes 1 - 13 about how to start your business, or restart if ran into some...difficulty. You heard about mind hacking, growth hacking, and even client hacking. And you've learned about the 7——and only 7——physical things standing between you and a shiny new business. 

And now your business is up and humming along. Congratulations! You have first client, and maybe even a second or third client. 

Life is great! it? 

Having no business or clients is one kind of challenge (admittedly a bad one,) but suddenly having too many clients (yes, many businesses starve from growing too fast) is a different challenge.

How can a solo provider shop, or small shop of partner professionals manage multiple clients at once and keep them all happy? 

We're going to tackle that head-on today. 

Plus, Bangin' Your Health returns with the final installment in our series of "7 Keys to Achieving High Performance Health". 

And in the "Bangin' Your Productivity segment", we're going to geek out just a little bit with one of my go-to Swiss army knife tools for text; counting characters, lines, stripping duplicates, sorting lines, prefixing and suffixing lines, lots of stuff.  

Hmmm...sounds like a LOT of stuff to cover in one episode, so let's dive in.


Jun 17, 2015

What if I told you it's not only possible to grow your firm like the pros, but do it in a tiny fraction of the cost? Even if you're not a super-technical coder person?  

Well, today Bangin' Your Business is joined by two growth hacking experts who can help startups and businesses of all sizes——even brand new ones——compete with the big guns.

Today's episode rolls business, marketing and productivity into one super-charged interview. So grab your favorite beverage and a notepad (or note / dictation app if you're driving or working out) and let's bang on some growth hacking.

Topics covered on today's show include:

  • The biggest mistakes startups make, and how to avoid them.
  • Growth hacking, what it is——and isn't.
  • How to grow a business like the pros with a shoestring budget.
  • How to exploit programming, APIs, and traditional IT technologies with little or no IT, programming, or technology background.
  • Specific growth and marketing hack examples.
  • The power of connection, showing up, and being consistent.
  • How to sell unknown, but potentially HUGE results to large enterprises.
  • And tons more!

Get your favorite note-taker and a beverage and let's roll!

Are you ready to take off on your own and build an independent consulting or professional services business?

Feeling a bit overwhelmed, or conflicted by too many different opinions on what to do or how to do it?

Do you get distracted by those shiny objects, such as new classes, tools, websites, and shiny widgets? 

Maybe you're mired in busy work and realizing that the clients and profits just aren't materializing the way you'd hoped?

I've been there too more than once. And if any of this sounds familiar, you're in the right place. This episode dives into the 7 (and yes, ONLY 7) physical things standing between you and your new professional services business. That's today's feature segment.

We're going to bang your health this week with Key #6 of the 7 Keys to High Performance Health.

With health and business underway, it will be time to bang on some productivity with my take on the ultra-popular "morning ritual" or "morning routine topic."

Tons of stuff to cover so let's get to it!

Is RFP bidding part of your client process? Wondering all those bids are even WORTH it sometimes?

Well, as a former RFP consultant and someone who has won and lost many RFPs over the years, I have some definite opinions on the matter. By popular request, I'll dive deep into the RFP waters and share some suggestions for deciding if the RFP game is right for your firm.

In the Bangin' Your Health segment, we're picking up our series again with key #5 of the 7 Keys to High-Performance Health. Today’s topic is one my all-time favorites and something it seems everyone is talking about. Here’s my take, from a nutritional and health perspective.

What if you could switch your mind on and off between a super or "root-level" user mode and functional task mode at will? Suddenly, the phrase "you're not what you think" takes on new meaning.

Or, maybe like me you're a pragmatic person and frustrated with all of the woo-woo self-help stuff out there with yoga in the wilderness, mountaintops or thumbs-up? How about actual step-by-step plans to transform your mind and your life?

Fortunately for all of us, someone has finally written an owner's manual for the mind. And it's called "Mind Hacking." I'm SUPER pumped to be joined today with special guest "Sir" John Hargrave....

You're busy busy busy busy...SO much to do!

Home, work, friends, life, and "other".

You know you should delegate, and outsource, and probably automate more, but how? where? when? why?

I’ll share everything that has worked well for our firm—and what hasn’t. (Disclaimer: I am NOT an insurance agent and our firm is not an in insurance firm. This is a discussion of what has worked well for us over the last 12 years.)

  • How NOT to start a software or SAAS business, and what to do instead.
  • Reasons to NOT move between states or countries (and some reasons TO do so).
  • Why to never take "loans" or "gifts" from family members (and what to do instead.)
  • Why your economic situation is all about *you*, and not the economy, weather, politics, etc. (Which is actually a great thing when you realize how much control you really have!)
