Yes. I’m serious.
Look, I want to be as successful as anybody else.
One of the things that I’ve gleaned from my e-mentors like Casey Neistat and Bobby Hundreds is that you can’t focus on money.
I know it’s maddening when people tell you to just ‘make great art’ and the money will come.
Not everybody can be Andy Weir, writing blog posts for free and self-publishing a book on Amazon for $1 because they wouldn’t let him sell it for free.

I’m super freaking pumped to talk to an incredible guy today.
He’s exceptionally entrepreneurial but not in a way that you’d expect. He’s started a massive recycling program, no, that’s not right, a recycling MOVEMENT in Detroit. He’s a purveyor of street art and he literally checks all of the boxes for building a successful business but he’s chosen to focus on recycling. Also known as Green Ghandi of Garbage. Grab your cup of coffee and let’s sit down and talk trash with out guest today, Mr. Matt Naimi.

My quest to bring you as many free resources as possible in addition to our coffee chats here on the podcast continues. If you head over to brendanhufford.com/free you can grab a list of the 10 free tools that I used to start and grow my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu business, my podcast, and even the course that I have my first group of students going through right now. Go to BrendanHufford.com/Free to grab those free resources. There’s an outline of Emotional Stacking, as well as a really cool list of how you can have all the tools the big brands have, but for free. You’ll be glad you checked it out.
So grab your cup of coffee. I have my stadium cup (yes, it’s really a stadium cup from a minor league baseball game full of coffee) and let’s chat with today’s guest, serial entrepreneur, podcaster, course wizard, and speaker Omar Zenhom.
My quest to bring you as many free resources as possible in addition to our coffee chats here on the podcast continues. If you head over to brendanhufford.com/free you can grab a list of the 10 free tools that I used to start and grow my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu business. Because, unlike most people talking about business online, I *actually* have a business outside of teaching business. In fact, this podcast isn’t really a business because it doesn’t make any money. So I guess Ok! Kimonos, my jiu jitsu company, is really my only business.
Alright! Enough meandering. Go to BrendanHufford.com/Free to grab those free resources. There’s an outline of Emotional Stacking, as well as a really cool list of how you can have all the tools the big brands have, but for free. You’ll be glad you checked it out.

I want to answer your question for Q&A Friday: Brendanhufford.com/ask
Today’s guest is Adam Clark of The Gently Mad and Irresistible Podcasting
Here’s what’s hilarious. For being the most self doubting person I know, Adam makes the most amazing things. In fact, I think I’ll ask him how that’s possible.
For instance, He made irrestible podcasting, an awesome podcast courseat irrestiblepodcasting.com and also a REALLY cool thing called the podcast bundle at podcastbundle.com
The podcast bundle includes his course and a TON of other things.
In fact, I bought the podcast bundle even though I’d already bought one of the products in it because it was such a great deal.
What’s super cool is that it started selling for $1 and it goes up $1 every time somebody buys it. I think it was at $60 when I got it so go to podcastbundle.com to see where it’s at now.
Today’s another special day because you get to hear behind the scenes a bit again.
In the next coffee chat, you’ll hear me talk a lot about self doubt and regret with an awesome freelancer and entrepreneur, Adam Clark of Irresistible Podcasting and The Gently Mad.
It got me thinking a lot about my own self-doubt and feelings of failure at times when my life is, truly, quite overwhelming. I have 4 businesses if you include all of my web properties and the work to run and grow them, my career as an assistant principal, a group I help lead at my church, my extended family, my faith, Brazilian jiu jitsu, strength training, my wife and my son. That’s a lot of different things pulling at my attention, requiring constant vigilance and progress.
I’ve had about a thousand cups of coffee already today so I’m going to talk super-fast. We’re going to dive into the question here in a moment but I want to answer your question next week! Go to BrendanHufford.com/ask OR go to entrepreneursandcoffee.com/ask. So either try to figure out how to spell my confusing name or the word entrepreneur. It’s actually like a quest. I feel like the bridge keeper from Monthy Python. Brendan, for sure start making the links easier for people.
Anyways, I really want to do more Q&A Friday episodes and I’d love to start doing them more than once a week. If you don’t want to submit a voicemail on the site, just tweet me @brendanhufford on twitter.
Today’s question comes from Nico who, like me, is a side hustling maniac who owns a cleaning service that has turned into much much more.
Thank you for hanging out with me for a cup of coffee today. I am Brendan hufford and this is the entrepreneurs and coffee podcast.
We’ll chat about our guest in a moment but first I wanted to say thank you.
Thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for being a fan. Being a listener.
I took 2 weeks off from the show to make my first course. To make something amazing to help people start their first business.
And you’re still here. You’re still listening.
That means the absolute world to me. We’ll talk more about the course in a future episode but in the meantime, join our community which fans have named ‘The Breakfast Club’ over at brendanhufford.com/community. If you want to chat with myself and other entrepreneurs about questions and problems you’re having in your business, without all of the self promotion you see in other facebook groups, check out brendanhufford.com/community.
So let’s talk super fast about our guest today, Jared Easely.
He co-hosts the Starve the Doubts podcast with Kimanzi Constable who was on episode 17 of entrepreneurs and coffee.
He also co-founded the awesome conference that I’ll be checking out this summer called Podcast Movement, along with my friends Pat Flynn from episode 35 and Omar Zenhom from the $100 MBA whose episode is going out later this month. I can’t freaking wait for the event and if you’re a podcaster or thinking about starting one, there isn’t a better place to make friends than Podcast Movement.
We’ll talk about Starve the Doubts, Podcast Movement, and if I know Jared as well as I think I do, we’re probably going to go off on a few random tangents about entrepreneurship as well.
So grab your cup of coffee and let’s sit down with our guest, Jared Easley.
So today’s episode is a bit of a bonus episode.
I’ve been talking to you guys a lot lately in webinars and in email, twitter, and on Facebook. Even in our facebook group that you can find over at brendanhufford.com/community
What is happening today my name is Brendan Hufford and you are listening to the entrepreneurs and coffee podcast. I hope you have your coffee ready today because we’re going to talk about one of my favorite things in the world.
Whatever you want to call it.
Getting things done.
It’s the whole point of this show!
I have something I want you to take action on right now. Before you even dive into this episode.
You see, taking action is something everybody struggles with. And that’s one of the big reasons I want to invite you to join me for a free LIVE webinar workshop over at brendanhufford.com/work. I’ll be live teaching you 3 strategies to start or re-start your business. Even if you have a business up and running, the 3 things I’ll share in the workshop will have an immediate, dramatic impact on the work you do. Check out brendanhufford.com/work and I look forward to seeing you there!
