Why 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.
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
Ted called in a question about tagging .mp3 files. I spent a few moments of this episode sharing my current thoughts on tagging your .mp3 files with metadata. You can see my old tutorial on tagging by clicking here. (00:37:36)
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)
