Brian and Jordan are back and feeling a little better from last week. We’re touching on the coronavirus and how it pertains to the economy and how it affects our businesses and conferences in the near future. We’re also talking about the stories in our heads, having renewed energy about our businesses, positioning, prioritizing, and general updates.
We’re are both back after a couple weeks off the mic. Today we’re talking about therapy sessions, the amount of stress and pain in entrepreneurial careers, business trips, leaks and waiting times, solving puzzles, and sales. When is a good time to start removing yourself from different positions in your business so you can start focusing on what does need your attention? How do we deal with work-related stress when we’re the ones putting ourselves in those positions?
Brian and Jordan are back for the third week in a row. We talk about their plans for the next couple of weeks (Slovania and BigSnowTinyConf). We also go through a few current and upcoming updates. We pose a few questions including, when you have a new product, do you take longer and make base features, or differentiate first? How do you feel about working remotely or working in a coworking space with other people? Do you hire an individual freelancer or go to an agency?
Today we’re talking about getting back to work after the holiday “festivities”, the inability to unplug, slowing down in December, the themes that ran through 2019, and what our themes for 2020 will be.
Brian and (a sick) Jordan are back talking about upcoming Halloween festivities, what they missed out on by missing MicroConf (in Croatia), their thoughts on SEO, product vs. marketing, new podcasting ideas, and the new ProcessKit website.
Jordan and Brian are back in the studio. Today the main focus is on the continuous adjustments needed in the software industry. They also quickly cover the trend of SaaS companies doing conferences and community-based marketing. Jordan talks about how great Carthook is doing, productivity challenges, goals for the future, some exciting, secret news for the future, and Carthook’s amazing director of communications. Brain talks about presenting at CaboPress, the possibility of meetups for his team, and his new developer.
Jordan and Brian are back to a regular podcasting schedule. Brian spent the weekend at a retreat/mastermind group at Martha’s Vineyard. Meanwhile, Jordan was at the Striped Conference.
