The value is the value regardless of how long it takes you to create it. The time you spend is inside your black box. They get the Coke or Snickers and don't need to worry what your vending machine gears do or how long they grind: the snack is delicious regardless.

This episode is for anyone who's billing hourly but works in the knowledge economy.

Domination and submission are natural and important parts of human interaction. By understanding and mastering these states, we can improve our communication skills and achieve success in our personal and professional lives. However, each state has both a negative and positive (whether manipulative in the negative dominant, or inferior in the negative submissive).

In most scenarios, a healthy conversation allows both speakers to...

The Ford Edsel was one of the worst product failures in the history of the auto industry. The blunder of this one car cost Ford about $350 million in 1957, equal to about $3.76 billion today (based on inflation calculators). This loss was avoidable. Hear the lesson for your business.

Key idea: Don't focus on getting millions of dollars of investment to build a product. Instead, first build the right thing. You have to understand...

This happens in dating, and it happens in your business relationships with your customers. Conflict and failure and tension are inevitable: it's how you handle these -- and come out stronger if you do it well.

Someday soon we'll look back on the term "female founder" and group it with "secretary" or "stewardess", terms we deem derogatory or outdated and only your grandpa still says (which is cute when he does).

First, let's talk about anatomy. When we use the term "female," we're referring to a person's biological sex, which is determined by their reproductive organs. However, this doesn't necessarily correspond with a person's gende...

The alluring thing about 99-cent pricing (known as charm pricing) is that it feels like a sale price. It's a game stores have played with us for decades. Learn about charm pricing, the anchor effect of a price ending in 9 or 99, and whether it's right for your product or service.


  • Charm pricing: higher prices ending in a "9" will actually outperform lower prices – on the very same product (typically)

When "opportunist" isn't a dirty word.... Dunbar's Number is concept that could change the way you think about your relationships. Anthropologist Robin Dunbar's theory suggests that humans can only maintain stable relationships with a limited number of people, typically around 150. This number is based on the size of the neocortex in our brains, which is responsible for social cognition.

In other words, our brains are wired to h...

The most wasteful thing you can do in marketing is to try to change a mind. Instead, set yourself up as first in a category. It's a much easier hill to climb.

Marketing is about perception, not product. This is a key concept in the book "The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing: Violate Them at Your Own Risk " by Al Ries and Jack Trout. Ries and Trout write:

I'd rank rapport higher than Freeman does. On that note: check out "Way of the Wolf", an excellent sales book by Jordan Belfort - grab on Amazon here.

A simple definition of leverage: To use something that you already have in order to achieve something new or better. Digital businesses are unlimited (code, software, scale). But media has even greater leverage (look at influencers who've launched beauty brands, liquor brands, or monetized podcasts/YouTube/TikTok).

Hear the story of my "side hustle" from before that term existed. It was a low leverage but delightful business in ...

Many marketers will tell you that consistency in content creation is key. "Publish every Tuesday to establish trust by fulfilling expectation. Commit to creating content on a schedule so it drives traffic and brand equity over time."

At first, yes. When you start from zero you need to give about 6 times for every 1 ask. Once you're established and have an audience, you can get away with more flexibility which is great if you ac...
