Episode Info

Episode Info: And now for something completely different.In this episode of the Build Your Online Business Podcast, we're trying a completely new format - and I think that it works!The last few episodes have been very well scripted, so we decided to have a completely 'off the cuff' conversation about a topic that we are very passionate about: the philosophical differences between starting a small business, a startup or just giving yourself a job.We believe that it is fundamentally important to begin with the right mindset.In this short, 20 minute conversation, we layout, discuss, then tear apart some often believed, yet flawed thoughts on startups and small business.Small disclaimer:  this was going to be a 100% unedited, free-flowing discussion of ideas, but unfortunately Jon lost his internet connection twice.  All ideas are unedited, but a couple splices in the conversation were needed for coherency.  Accept our apologies ;)Here is what you will get from this episode:The key difference between starting a small business or building a startup. What Jon thinks about small businesses and why he will never start another one. Why scalability is so important. (and how to do this.) How not to build a job online, but instead to build a business and be the owner. How to understand this mentality and break free of it, once and for all. Where to get tasks done online for next to nothing. (And what you should get done first.)Links and resources mentioned in this episode:The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It by Michael Gerber - The quickest and easiest way to get small tasks completed fast and cheap.Can you help us please? (it only takes 5 minutes)The lifeblood of any successful podcast is Ratings and Reviews on iTunes.  If you are using an iPad, iPhone, iPod, or a computer using iTunes to listen to this episode, then you already have an iTunes account.  You just need to click the link below, give us an honest 5-star rating ;)We will be so very, very grateful to you.  Thanks.Click below to head over to iTunes:Click here to go to iTunes and leaves us an awesome review!
