No Computer Keys Showing Denial Panic And NegativityWhy Every Entrepreneur Should Become An Expert At Saying No!
Recently, I received an email, from Gloria, that said…

“I Just spent the day listening to your podcast! So valuable and I feel so blessed to have found it!

In episode 321, you mentioned a talk you gave about four reasons entrepreneurs should say no. Do you mind sharing what the four reasons were?

Also any advice on how to respectfully decline the “Can I pick your brain?” requests? I am a motivational speaker and people are starting to ask me how to get into the industry (truth is, I got my first booking after 4 days! That wasn’t because of me, that was purely God!).

I know this is only going to increase once I start my podcast, as recently someone came up to me at a memorial service to try to network with me!

I don’t want to be rude, but have you found a way to respectfully, as a Christian, turn down people’s requests?

Any advice would be so appreciated.

God bless.

In response to Gloria’s email, I spent most of my time sharing the reasons why one should become more skilled at saying no. If you are looking for tips on how to effectively say no, I highly encourage you to check out episode 91 of Michael Hyatt’s podcast on this topic. (starts at 00:05:37)

 
 
Current Thoughts On Tagging

Co-Hosting Advice
Alex called in to say that he started a movie review podcast with some friends and that it has been very successful so far. Alex has some interest in monetizing the platform while his co-hosts seem very opposed to the idea. He asked for my thoughts on this subject and I gave them in this episode. (00:43:15)

 
 
Should I Use SoundCloud?
Dana called in to say that she’s heard a number of podcasters mention that their shows could be found in iTunes, Stitcher and now on SoundCloud. She wanted to know if I thought that she needed to include her podcast on the SoundCloud platform as well. I share my response to Dana’s question in this episode. (00:53:48)

Behind Every Great Man, You Will Find A Great Woman!
In this week’s episode I am honored to have my wife, Stephanie, as a guest with me in the studio. I shared, previously, that we were shocked to learn just how many folks in the Podcast Answer Man community who had no idea that Stephanie had podcasts (plural) of her own.

CliffAndStephanie-Medium-FrameWe’ve had some pretty amazing conversations over the past two weeks, since returning from the Platform Conference, and wanted to share some of the outcomes of those conversations with you.

One of the main things that we discuss are Five Tips For Getting Your Spouse On The Same Page With Your Entrepreneurial Journey. By listening to this episode, you’ll get an inside glimpse on how and why Stephanie joined me in my podcasting hobby and how she is actually the person responsible for me going into this line of work full-time.

Skype Desktop API Update
Great news! Skype has decided to cancel it’s plans to stop supporting their desktop API after December of this year. In a blog post on 11/6/2013, they said, “Previously we shared that we would retire the Desktop API later this year. However, I’m happy to share that we will be extending support for two of the most widely used features – call recording and compatibility with hardware devices.”

This means that if you are using Skype recording software that works today, it will continue to be supported beyond December of this year!
