036 PC Podcast: Putting More Power Into Your Time
What’s up Productive Catholic people? I am super excited to present you with the next podcast episode. It’s been about two weeks since the last podcast and there is good reason for that. I promise that will get back on to the weekly schedule as soon as possible. In this episode we have two really cool topics. The first is all about WordPress themes that you can use for your parish. There are a ton of Catholic parishes out there that have websites that are from the dawn of time. They don’t engage their audience, they don’t evangelize well, and they are mainly used just to figure out when Mass times are. Well, there are a lot of opportunities out there with WordPress to revamp your parish website without having to break the bank. I recommend looking ThemeForest.net to check out some of the amazing themes that they have for churches. I’m excited to talk about this topic, which came from Father Alden via email. The second topic of this podcast is all about the difference between managing time and what you do with the time that you are managing. In other words it’s not just about carving up time throughout your day, it’s about what you do during that time that makes all of the difference. I talk about how a project that took more than three years to really get started has now taken less than a month to complete simply by focusing on the tasks that moved the project forward.

035 PC Podcast: Programmer’s Back Pain and Business Building
Don’t think that you have something to share that could potentially bring a lot of eyes and ears to your website? Think again… In this episode Devin shares how he took one of his major pains (literally) and turned it into an opportunity to market his new blog in a major way. It all started with programmer’s back pain. You see, Devin is a programmer, and on of the things that happens to a lot of people who code for a living is that they start to develop a lot of repetitive stress injuries and injuries that are the result of sitting down for many hours. It totally sucks, but that’s what happens. Well, Devin used this opportunity to create a huge blog post that goes through all of the things that he has tried to do to relieve his back pain. Now, he didn’t stop there… How Programmer’s Back Pain Turned into Income After he wrote the post he started promoting his post on several already high traffic platforms. One of those platforms was Reddit. He went to a sub-section of Reddit that is strictly for programmers and let them know that he wrote a post on programmer’s back pain and how he has dealt with it. He began to get traffic immediately… and the party didn’t stop there. He also tweeted out his blog post to high-level programmers that also had the same problem, and he even got his tweet favorited by a really famous coder that has programmer’s back pain. I almost forgot to mention that the post Devin created had a bunch of affiliate links in it too that has already made money for him. Cool huh? The point of all of this is to show that you have talents, abilities, and knowledge that can be shared and be used to make money. If Devin can make money from a post about programmer’s back pain, you can make money too with what you know.

034 PC Podcast – Dropshipping Revisited
In this episode, Katie Rose from Style Moms asks a great question about dropshipping and how to go about finding a women’s apparel dropshipper that will also allow her to put her own private label on the product. There are a number of options that are available, but one of the big issues with drop shipping is that a wholesaler, wherever they are in the world, needs to be able to ship thing quickly. That being said, wholesalers might not be able to print your label on demand, and they sure as heck aren’t going to keep inventory that’s solely for you unless you can sell a lot of it. Some of the sites mentioned that could potentially help get apparel dropshipped are AliExpress (they will ship to the US from Asia quickly), Wholesalecentral (A huge directory of wholesalers that you can contact and work out an agreement with), and Zazzle (they only work with a few types of clothing, but it’s easy). We also respond to a comment that was left by Adam about episode 29 where Devin and I talk about Multi-level marketing. In that episode I explain that I don’t see any multi-level marketing opportunities as a business and that if you really want to start your own business you need to have a product or service to sell that you personally own and aren’t just trying to get into your network of referrals. If you’d like to be a part of the podcast, feel free to give us a call at 714-643-5301 or you can leave us a comment on any of our podcast posts. We’d love to hear from you!
