Interested in going from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur without quitting your job?  Let's chat!

Who messes up the first sentence? This guy.

I really hope you enjoyed the last episode in this series where I shared Rule number two of Bobby Hundreds’ 10 Rules of Brand Building. As before, you can find the full article at thehundreds.com.

Today, we’re gonna rap about Rule Number 3, but first I want to remind you to go toentrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask and ask me a question for Free Q&A Friday tomorrow.  We have a few ready to roll out but I can’t wait to hear YOUR question to go to entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask and leave me a question. It takes 30 seconds and I can’t wait to feature you on the show!

I love the book Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell.  I had the fortune of reading it for the first time on vacation with my wife and my parents.  I do most of my thinking and planning by getting away from my normal location and routine and this was no different.  You see, in Outliers, Gladwell says you can achieve mastery in about 10,000 hours of effort.  I slightly disagree, I think that you don’t need the full 10k.  You can be dangerous with around 80% master, enough to do some serious damage, in far less time.

But 10 thousand hours?  That’s some serious consistency.  That’s Bill Gates breaking into computer labs and skipping classes to learn programming not once or twice, but every day for YEARS.

 

You don’t get consistency like that by working 15 different jobs in 10 years or getting a new hobby every January.  You buckle down and do one thing for a decade.  If people don’t say you’re obsessed or think you’re crazy about whatever you’re into, you’re not deep enough yet.

Heyo! Brendan Hufford back here again with a nice, hot, comically large cup of coffe joining you today on the Entrepreneurs and Coffee podcast.

And I have to make a confession

Today is not really an episode, but more of an ask.

And that ask is just for you to check out entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask.

Today is the first ever Entrepreneurs and Coffee Q&A Friday where I’ll be answering *YOUR* questions on business, branding, marketing, coffee, and anything else I can help with.

These episodes are going to be super freaking fun, but only if you (and I) don’t act the fool.  

Well, I’ll probably still act the fool. It’s all the coffee. I can’t help it.

Sound good? Rad.

So here’s the best way to get on the show:

Please keep your question under one minute in length.

If you have a website and URL, you’re allowed to share it only once during the recording. For example: “Hi, my name is Phil Phillipson. I have a blog called Phil’s Brews at WatchPhilBrew.com. My question is…”

Spammy, hateful, or if I just can’t understand the words that are comin out of your mouth,

Please do not go out for happy hour on Friday and then decide to submit a question.  

Actually please do.

It won’t get on the show, but I’ll probably really enjoy listening to it.

So again, go to entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask and

Oh, and a special note, only the first 20 or so messages will be saved, so if you want to get your question answered on the show, now is the time to ask.

 

I can’t wait to answer your question next Friday on the Entrepreneurs and Coffee Podcast.

Where da coffee at, son?

I really hope you enjoyed the last episode in this series where I shared Rule number one of Bobby Hundreds’ 10 Rules of Brand Building. As before, you can find the full article at thehundreds.com.

Today, we’re gonna rap about Rule Number 2, but first I want to remind you to go to entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask and ask me a question for Free Q&A Friday tomorrow.  We have a few ready to roll out but I can’t wait to hear YOUR question to go to entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask and leave me a question. It takes 30 seconds and I can’t wait to feature you on the show!

 

We’re going to talk about how to do it well, and how to totally screw it up.  I’ll also give you a case study of how a company worth $1.65 billion is totally messing it up as well.  So it’s not just us little guys that can forget this one.

Interested in going from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur without quitting your job?  Let's chat!

Today it’s just you and me grabbing coffee together.

Since it’s only the first time we've grabbed coffee together here, just you and I, I want to share with you some stuff that I’m almost sure you've never heard of AND something that’ll make a radical difference for you in your life and business.

And I want to give you examples from my business.

You know, what it *actually* looks like.

And I want to give credit where credit’s due. I am MASSIVELY inspired byBobby Kim of The Hundreds. You’ll hear me reference him again and again in our chats together and it’s because I consider him to be a mentor of sorts.

We’ve met once, briefly, but he’s put out a ton of information for young entrepreneurs and what I’ll be sharing comes from his article at thehundreds.com called ‘The 10 Rules of Brand-Building.’

As a teacher, I know if I give a student too much, they won’t retain anything, and the same goes for my friends, like you. So we’re just going to hit these 10 branding rules one at a time.

Okay, so there's a reason I wanted Hal Elrod to be my first episode.

In this episode, Hal and I grab a cup of Bulletproof coffee and chat about:

  • Dying!?! (But seriously, he did die)
  • A GEM of advice about sales that literally changed my thoughts on work
  • Coming back from depression (including something he hasn't talked about publicly before)
  • The Miracle Morning (more on that below)
  • The funniest "Random Question" answer I've ever had
  • and, as always, two huge pieces of actionable advice for entrepreneurs starting out, and entrepreneurs who've been in the game for a bit.
