TMBA430: The Philosophy Of Crypto A few weeks back, Dan and Ian shared an in-depth conversation about cryptocurrency. That podcast featured Greg Gerber, who spoke about the basic things that you need to know about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital currencies. The response to that podcast was fantastic, and we thought we would follow up on the topic by inviting our longtime friend, and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Taylor Pearson back on to the show. Taylor’s recent article “Why Is Bitcoin Valuable” was recently featured on the front page of Hacker News. On today’s show, Taylor joins us to talk about that article, and to share his insights on the philosophy behind this new technological movement. This episode isn’t all philosophical, though. Taylor also shares some great tips about how you can dip your toes into the crypto space if you are so inclined. Powered by WPeMatico

TMBA429: The Problem With Cold Email Dan and Ian know better than anyone how important lead generation is to a business. After all, they used to end every episode of this podcast with the phrase “Go make a cold call.” Every business needs to make sales to survive, and to make those sales, they need to have leads. Today we are going to speak to two people who specialize in generating leads and making sales. Dan Englander is the founder of SalesSchema, a consulting company that helps larger ad agencies win more business. Dana Lindahl is the CEO and Founder of Legendary LeadGen, a company that helps marketing agencies get in touch with their ideal prospects. We’ve asked Dan and Dana to join us this week to engage in a bit of a spirited debate about the two dominant methods of lead generation. On one side of the debate, there are people who believe that creating an amazing business that relies on word-of-mouth marketing will ultimately bring in more qualified leads. On the other side, there is the idea that cold email outreach is ultimately the superior way to get new customers and clients. Regardless of what you believe, we hope this episode will inspire you to go out there and take the necessary steps to grow your business. Powered by WPeMatico

TMBA428: A Critique of Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Workweek A recent episode of Tim Ferriss’ podcast caught the attention of Dan and Ian. The title of that episode was “The 4-Hour Workweek Revisited”. For those who are unfamiliar, Tim is the author of The 4-Hour-Workweek, which is easily the most influential book in our community of location-independent entrepreneurs. The book is ten years old, and perhaps because of its prominence, it has received quite a few criticisms, many of which Tim addressed in his podcast. In this episode, Dan and Ian discuss their thoughts on Tim’s podcast, the themes presented in his book, and why The 4-Hour Workweek is still such an important part of the entrepreneurial zeitgeist a decade after it was released.

TMBA427: Dan and Ian’s Consulting Corner Dan and Ian receive a lot of emails from listeners of this show. They don’t always have time to respond to them, but one recent email caught their attention. The message was from a listener named Jay Clouse. Jay wrote that he was struggling with some of the common issues that early-stage entrepreneurs face. Jay recently left his position at a tech startup and has started a new business facilitating mastermind groups. Rather than email him back, Dan and Ian decided it might be helpful to call Jay and talk about these problems. This episode is a great resource for those who are just starting a business. For those of us who are more experienced entrepreneurs, we hope that you will stick around and share your own advice for Jay and the people like him in the comments section of this episode.
