TMBA 192 (LBP159) – A Philosophical Conversation : Gettin’ Paid vs. Makin’ Bank post image

Dan and Ian are joined on the show today by good friend and incredibly gifted entrepreneur Jon Myers.  Jon is a customer experience and user interface designer with an impressive client roster including some of the organizations to which you may pay taxes.

The fellas dive into the concept of simply running a comfortable company to pay the bills, and taking the next step to baller status.  It’s more than just getting more customers, and as you’ll find out in this episode, it takes a little work on yourself and your business practices in tandem.

Are You Makin’ $, or Makin’ $$$$$$?

  • Reverse engineering your customer experience and examining touch points for maximal impact.
  • How cultivating your professional image is a bit like developing your poker face; and how that will help you step up your game.
  • Why long ball thinking is more than just planning your future; and how you can get started today.
  • The second wave of the Four Hour Work Week and why it’s a world different than the first.

    Great episode guys. There should have been a health warning at the start…
    danger of earbuds melting in your ears from all the awesome.

    Thanks for the shoutout as well – I can’t wait to get back to Saigon!

    Holy crap, you guys just kicked my ass. Amazing episode! I’ve been killing myself building other people’s businesses and got stuck in the service income treadmill (job). Thanks for waking me up!
