How Do I (and SHOULD I) Go All in with What I've Started?
#1168 Martin's podcast is now making up 50 percent of his take-home money — the other 50 percent comes from his work as a paramedic. How can Martin take that next leap of faith towards going full-time with his business and podcast, Calming Anxiety? How can he further his brand, and should that include putting his name in the actual podcast name? I challenge Martin to find out what's holding him back and what his plan would be in a few different scenarios, plus offer him some tips for extending his show's reach through YouTube. Martin says he's got a few exciting things in the pipeline, including a brand-new app, so I can't wait to follow up with him again in the future! Show notes and more at SmartPassiveIncome.com/ap1168

How Do I Build My Team, Expand My Brand, and Connect with More People?

Her customers are all over the world, so how can she make the ordering process seamless, no matter where someone's ordering from? Arcelia and I are going to brainstorm some solutions, so make sure you stick around. Show notes and more at SmartPassiveIncome.com/ap1166
