511 – Do I Really Need All This Stuff?


I recently published a video where I gave a tour of my Next Level Studio. This prompted one individual to write a comment on the video (which this person has since deleted). That comment said….

Cliff, you have a LOT of stuff. Do you really need all of that? I mean as a self proclaimed Christian, (I’m anti religion btw) couldn’t you help more people by doing more with less and donating all the money you put into that stuff? … It’s none of my business how you spend your money but I feel like some of you guys that teach entrepreneurship to guys who have little income are kind of rubbing your success in our faces. I know that’s not your intention but do you ever think about what you’re actually putting out there? (No I'm not your audience, and no I don’t have a podcast, and no I haven’t worked as hard as you online, but yes I work hard every day and face my battles as they come)

This episode is my response to the questions posed in this comment.

508 – The Awesome Benefits of Having Your Own Audio Podcast


Have you ever wondered why I'm so passionate about audio podcasting? Why I decided to pursue a full-time career in helping others launch their own podcasts?

I promise you, when I first made the decision to pursue this full-time, it wasn't for the money!

Sure, over the past ten years, working very hard to build this business, I now generate a great living from teaching others how to podcast. However, it is the the benefits that audio podcasting offers to those who have a MESSAGE that they want to get out into the world, that drives me to help others launch a podcast.

In this episode, I share eight benefits that an audio podcast offers that no other online platform can come close to delivering.

507 – Pricing: They Are Not Paying You For An Hour of Your Time

In this episode, I share some thoughts about the mindset of what people are paying for when they hire you for an hour of one-on-one coaching and/or consulting. When people pay you (whatever amount), they are not paying for an hour of your time, they are paying for access to the years of experience, knowledge and wisdom that you bring to the table.

I hope that this episode will inspire you to create a document where you can begin to take an inventory of all the value that you bring to the table. As you continue to grow, learning and experiencing new things (Including Failure), you'll be able to add to this list, increasing the value that you have to offer others.
