TMBA 073 (LBP73) – 3 Harmful Business Myths Learned from Big Biz post image

In this week’s episode, Dan and Ian talk about common small business myths. Learning about big, successful companies can be inspiring, but many entrepreneurs make the mistake of trying to copy their ways of doing business. The fact is that a company like Apple or Nike approaches marketing (and all other parts of running a business) entirely different than you should run your business. Listen to this episode to learn of the three most harmful myths.

In the quick tips section radio DJ Dan Lyons gives podcasting advice. Furthermore, Ian recommends a podcast interview with “4 hour”-guru Tim Ferriss.

    Thanks for the episode, I’ve got a mate who’s always coming up with ideas and I’m constantly telling him stop with the ideas and get out and do something. I’ll point him to this episode next time he tells me one! Cool interview with Joe Rogan too, man he is a funny mofo haha.

    haha word. Enjoyed the SEO article too, thought the ‘great content’ myth is one not many people are talking about, turns a lot of people away from legit ‘greyer’ opportunities.

    WOW. Johnny come lately! I’m assuming it was a much different experience for you because there is no much bloggin’ on those concepts nowadays? When I read it was an absolutely 100% game changer. I turned on a dime.

    I hadn’t even heard of the book until I heard your episode talking about it. To be honest it was a real eye opener. It made me realise how passive my life has been, it’s messing with my head a bit actually because the location independent thing isn’t really an option for me now so I’m wondering WTF to do with all the spare time I’m going to have ha. Thinking maybe surf more and buy a boat, lol.
