    (Radio Interview II) Freedom, Motivation, & Grow What You Know

    Here's my second interview on Dublin South FM.


    • We talk about "freedom".

    • I wonder why people need motivation.

    • I give my hack to get out of your own way.

    • I wonder why people can't see the grass under their own feet.


    I'll get a transcription added later.

    I hope it helps.

    thank you

    takeaway : repeat customers . they are the most important asset of any business .

    by the way, the interviewer looks a bit naive and i don't like music break when listening to an interview

    but you can't do anything about that, i know

    This chat opened my mind on a lot of things. My Procrastination , how simple it is to find businesses for yourself . Really how much we complicate things when we don't really need to

    On getting started:

    The biggest reason people don't start is because they get in their own way.

    They look for that next big thing, a great idea, an awesome partner, a mentor and a thousand other things.

    I was the best example and looked for all of the above and much more.

    It took me years to understand certain things, to let go of a certain mindset.

    Because I didn't put myself out there.

    What ultimately helped me was to stop chasing the day I'd be ready.

    Because that day NEVER comes.


    On choosing a direction:

    Most beginners neglect skills they already have, sacrifice time they could spend out in the fields to learn just one more thing.

    Most of the ones starting out have a job that already brings in money.

    Why not use that?

    Repackage skills you already have. Skills that come naturally to you, that you enjoy.

    You might not see certain things at first, so talk to your friends and family - they might tell you something you haven't thought about.

    There is not only a product/market fit, but also a product/founder fit. Your offer needs to fit your personality too.

    If you cannot launch within 7 days and get your first sale, your offer is too complex.


    On procrastination

    Why don't we get stuff done?

    Because we overthink.

    We engage in the art of solving problems we DON'T have.


    On staying motivated

    Motivation has two sides.

    You either hunt something or you run away from something.

    Like the prey.

    Or the hunter.

    Know who you are and define your why.


    On practical things

    Working from home is a problem for some.

    I also had my issues with it, until I put it into perspective.

    I save a lot of money that I'd otherwise be spending on lunch eating out.

    I save a lot of time NOT commuting to an office that I actually spend working now.


    On selling & growth:

    Recurring customers and referrals by existing customers are your best bet to grow fast, so you better make them happy.

    It's about helping them with what you know, not using them for selfish reasons - a website that converts most likely won't win a design award.

    Conversational selling doesn't give people any chance to feel uncomfortable, to feel like they are actually being sold.

    Go so fast that you get uncomfortable.

    Become the guy to go to for XYZ, locally.
