Entrepreneurial integrity and the true drive of a hustler shine through in this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Business Podcast.  With a dose of that familiar Dan and Ian banter and a sprinkle of delightful puns, they break it down in a longer than usual episode to bring you the valuable marketing mojo you’re looking for.

They pick apart the rip, pivot and jam formula to make sure you’re honing in on the proper pivot and jam methods while telling you why many people get a little off track at this point.  You’ll also get Dan and Ian’s riverside hut metaphor to guide you in your quest of setting up shop and getting your first customers.

You’re Mission, if you Choose to Accept it…

  • Why you need to stop waiting for permission and accept your mission.
  • Dan’s entrepreneurial litmus test to ensure your motivations are beyond opportunism.
  • How to rip, pivot and jam for results while avoiding whack pivots.
  • Why building your hut in a rice patty does you no good – and how to reposition your shack to catch the most fish.
  • The difference between a good employee and a great employee. (It’s not what you think)

  • First thing: even though I don’t give a fuck about lifestyle, this is my favorite podcast. Hands done. BTW, I hate personally hate it when people write shit like this in the comments but then don’t leave an iTunes review. So I’ll go do that now.

    Second thing: thanks for the shoutout on the Brian Clark interview. Glad you liked it.


  • Jake Hower

  • Ian

    … You mean you don’t work only 4 hours a week?? Inconceivable!

  • Josh

    Thanks for answering my question guys, you rock!

    I really liked that Derek Siver’s quote, “If you want to be useful, you can always start now with only 1 percent
    of what you have in your grand vision. It will be a humble prototype version of
    your grand vision, but you’ll be in the game.” I’m gonna get that tatooed on my forehead so that everyone can get a piece of Derek’s wisdom.

    Cheers Josh I appreciate!!! When you finalize the tattoo, please send a pic if you don’t mind :)
