The Entrepreneur Online Glossary Part 1 – Affiliate Marketing
This episode breaks down all the terms used when talking about affiliate marketing or affiliate websites. We've been interviewing a lot of entrepreneurs who have started or developed additional businesses and income streams online through affiliate techniques. For anyone wanting to get started there have been a whole bunch of technical terms you might have heard without really understanding what we meant. If you listen to the episode and step through some of the links and processes we talk about you're well on your way to getting an affiliate website sorted. The main thing to remember is; whilst affiliate websites are easy to start they still require a lot of effort to make profitable, they also do need to be updated and maintained so don't think that making money with them is fast or cheap. It all depends on how many blog posts you can write and how much traffic you can build.

Live Case Study 3 – Hayley Kershaw
Has anyone tried to tell you they're a coach? This case study is all about a young lady that nearly became a coach, she took a look in the mirror and realised "I need to sort my sh*t out and do something first". So without writing a book, creating a program or selling a webinar series Hayley went out and started getting seriously clear on why she wanted to help people. She then aligned that to the physical making of something she loves to make and now creates one off homewares and artworks based around the idea of reconnecting your life and your environment. Enter The Woven Dream. This isn't astrology or crystal healing, it's using the focus of beautifully created, exclusive pieces to help her customers bring the spiritual and natural worlds into their day to day lives. It's hard to describe how at peace one feels when considering or meditating on these pieces, they are genuinely beautiful. All that being said, this wouldn't be a Mixed Business case study if we didn't ask tough questions and find out if Hayley really has the right marketing, infrastructure, audience and message to turn these incredible items into a financially viable business.

Live Case Study 1 – Bazil Boyle
How do you go from disliking your job to actually making a business that can replace it? Follow our live case study interviews as we find out just what it feels like to come up with an idea, take it to market and try to build a real business. Bazil Boyle Bazil's business is No Thank You Clothing. As a concept it's pretty straightforward - create locally made, high-fashion t-shirts and sell them. In execution it's an entirely different matter. In this first interview we get into why Bazil is trying to enter an absolutely packed market, what motivates him to treat this as a serious business and what he thinks might be the major struggles to come. Keeping in mind this business is still on the intangible "it's a good idea" end of the spectrum we also try to get some solid core market definitions and physical steps for Bazil to take. We also challenge the idea of a "brand" and get really serious about what it takes to make something that deserves to be a real business. This is just the introduction and stage 1 of taking something from idea stage to actual business so please get behind Bazil and help us support his business while we all get to watch it grow and eventually succeed month by month.

Real Business Success With James Schramko
James Schramko is many things. In fact if you were to use one word to describe him it would be "prolific". With over 62,000 listeners subscribed to just one of his podcasts (he's got five) you'd think he's like so many online success stories, full of great stories about how following your passion or failing till you succeed is what got him where he is today. You might expect a great inspirational interview with a story of struggling and succeeding and general feel-good quotes. You'd be wrong. There's no magic mindset or secret trick, no hero's story. This interview is solid reality. If you want to get financial freedom or learn how to market a business then listen up because this one is for you. We talk content marketing, setting up affiliate income, setting up membership forums (like I described in Tim Reid's interview) the correct way to think about sales, how to get more business as a graphic designer, how to get more leads as a Mortgage Broker, how to sell your art and how to find the right content marketing platform for you. So much value, so many tactics, zero fluffy stuff. If you can't find a way to make more money or improve your business after listening to this you need to listen again and again until it all sinks in.

John McIntyre – Entrepreneur’s Journey
John McIntyre was a smart kid, exams were easy and his schooling was better than most... So why did he drop out of high school and leave for the Philippines with $2000 in his pocket and carry-on bag? John isn't (conventionally) famous, he hasn't written a book (yet) but there is no better case study for the "maybe-someday" entrepreneurs out there. This isn't a dream tale of following your passion or lucky breaks, it's the meat and potatoes of entrepreneurial experience. Listen up! From broke in the Philippines to sailing around Necker Island with Branson and living anywhere and everywhere he chooses. This is how you nail location-independent lifestyle by building a business based around following a skill that solves a problem, packaging that skill into products, building a niche brand or reputation and developing a virtual team to support you. The guy doesn't even write his own emails anymore!
