Keep Finding Ways to Add Value - with Podcaster Joe Fier (Ep 20)

Episode Summary

Jon and Bryan speak with Joe Fier--co-host of the popular Hustle and Flowchart podcast--about his path to becoming a leading podcaster by, as he puts it, "surrounding himself with good people doing interesting things and finding a way to add value."

Episode Notes

Jon and Bryan discuss Joe's path to being one of the leading podcasters in his space, including:

- Joe got started running as a kid and learned his discipline from running in high school, and his goal oriented, "conquer that hill" mindset
- The motivation you get from having kids to be healthy both physically and mentally
- Joe's various jobs that led him to work with his current business partner, Matt Wolfe, at his family's window shutter company
- His first online job helping to launch products, a skill he learned on the fly by creating and leveraging his network
- His first $1,000 investment in a mentor program, which was a huge investment for him at the time
- His strategy of surrounding himself with good people doing interesting things and finding a way to add value
- His fear of becoming a corporate zombie and his decision to pursue his graphic design and marketing projects (with his wife's support and despite his mom's concerns)
- His initial attempts at making content, from YouTube videos featuring Suzuki Samurais to blogs on how to be rich
- The core philosophy he shares with his business partner of wanting to learn and share what they learn freely, while making money via other channels
- His approach to learning by doing (and failing) and his creative approach to networking at seminars (hint: it involves more time at bars than joining seminars)
- How their current podcast was started as a networking tool and became a business
- Their approach to experimenting constantly, with the goal of leveraging all content as much as possible and providing the most value as possible to their fans
- How he and his partner divide responsibilities, and how he decides what to do himself versus delegate to others
- Their focus on creating (and supporting) fans rather than customers or subscribers, and Kevin Kelly's 1000 true fans concept
- Bryan shares a story about Apple's obsession with customer satisfaction, as exemplified by the "Missed Quotes" report
- How Joe accidentally created a great networking tool with his "Dream 100" email signature attachment, that gets him about two introductions per week
- And finally, Joe's "Go Be More": to be more strategic in his business and to be more present with his family.
