This conversational journey with Stæven and Mark will leave you feeling inspired in simple ways to make your brand easier to buy and get noticed as they discuss branding 'no-nos', the importance of doing your research, when to call in a trademark lawyer, how to assess your category norms, and more.

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Kevin Daisey discuss:Crafting your product around your client, not the other way around.Getting unstuck from making the same mistakes. How a podcast can help your marketing, no matter what field you're in. The secret about podcasting for lawyers. Key Takeaways:Everything comes back to strategy. Results and growth over time always start with strategy. You need to be focused, have a plan, give your marketing strategies time, and have someone who is tracking the KPIs from it. Without the data, you don't know how to handle it, both good and bad. You can make anything successful if you stick to it and do it properly. Hosting a podcast is less work than you think if you have a great team behind you. You become a talk show host of your own, get the marketing, and get great content to repurpose. "It's repurposing! You and me are recording this now. We can take this and make an article out of it. We can take clips, we can do video versions, we can do audio clips - there's so many things you can do to disperse it, and we did this recording one time." — Kevin DaiseyGet a free copy of Steve's book “Sales-Free Selling” here: www.fretzin.com/sales-free-selling Thank you to our Sponsors!Get Staffed Up: https://getstaffedup.com/bethatlawyer/Overture: https://overture.law/Get Visible: https://www.getvisible.com/Episode References: Sign up for the next BE THAT LAWYER: Marketing Mavericks - September 28th, 2023 - https://www.fretzin.com/blog/category/events/The Game with Alex Hormozi$100M Leads by Alex Hormozi About Kevin Daisey: Kevin Daisey is a digital marketer & entrepreneur.

Welcome to season 5 of Goals With Soul! This episode explores the topic of expertise. What are you an expert in? So often I see incredibly talented coaches, healers, and consultants, hiding their expertise instead of shouting loud and proud about it, courtesy of those mindset gremlins – fear of judgment, imposter syndrome, and even perfectionism. The result is your dream clients don't understand why they should work with you. Because the expertise that you express is directly related to the trust that you build. And the trust you build translates into sales and happy clients! When I take clients through my Brand EPICS process, we always start with the 5 five aspects of self, which undoubtedly reveals something hidden that isn't being expressed in their marketing. It's the additional magic you get when you work with them, but you just don't see it until you do! I had that hidden magic. I came from a successful career in advertising, building up SO much experience, but decided that I couldn't share all of this – there were some things I just didn't feel expert in. So, I didn't think I deserved to share them. But guess what? When I did start sharing them, the clients I attracted were my ideal match and created fantastic results. Those areas of expertise I'd been hesitant to share turned out to be my greatest passions! The clients I work with now are uniformly perfect clients because I'm not afraid to be me. An external agency doesn't have to certify us as being an expert in something. I have no dislike of education, absolutely not, but it can keep you stuck in a cycle of believing you need more and more of it. The truth is you are already an expert and authority in what you do. You have opinions and share them wildly. Scary, I know, but be bold - be a thought leader! Crafting brand opinions allows you to be known as an expert in your niche. Develop a framework that you can easily explain in a couple of minutes, explaining the uniqueness and power of exactly what you do to transform for your clients. My process is called the Aligned Client Code and it consists of 3 core elements: messaging, marketing, and business energetics. And no other business coach in the market blends those 3 elements in the way that I do. Which makes perfect sense because that unique blend comes from me! The bottom line is you are unique and brilliant. How can you shine? Enjoy the listen! ________________________ This month I have opened up 5 FREE Messaging Assessment spots in which you can get my eyes on how you express your expertise, articulate your value, and attract your soul clients.

Welcome back to another episode of "It's Simply Life!" Today, we're getting cozy in our brand-new recording spot, Dream Studios, in Arlington, TX. Today, we're discussing something I'm very passionate about and talk about all the time: the magic of crafting your brand story. A brand story is the foundation for any successful brand. Curious about what it is? Or maybe why your business absolutely needs one? And how do you even know if it's working for you? We're breaking it all down and diving deep. So, stick around, and let's journey through this storytelling adventure together! In this episode I discuss: The importance of simplifying life The constant bombardment of information and demands Losing focus on what truly matters Creating space for joy, happiness, and connection by simplifying The importance of a brand story Emotional connection and relationship building through a brand story Crafting your brand story Humanizing your brand Defining your target audience What should be incorporated in your brand story: values, struggles, achievements, mission How to relate to your audience Shifting from traditional advertising methods to relatable branding in the modern age The impact of a brand story How storytelling cuts through the noise My real-life examples of good storytelling Online metrics for measuring the impact: engagement, comments, DMs Storytelling framework Building a community Guiding your audience through a journey to solve their problems The transformation that happens when someone engages with your brand Key Takeaways Craft a Hero: The heart of your brand story lies in positioning your audience as the hero. It's not just about selling a product or service; it's about understanding their pain points (the villain) and guiding them through an evolution. Your customers are essentially buying this transformation. Emotion Over Logic: Forget the feature lists for a minute. What people truly connect with is emotion. So, think about the feelings you want your audience to experience and weave that into your brand's story. It's not about what you're selling but how you make people feel. Why? Because emotions, not logic, drive decisions. Community is Queen: Your brand story isn't just a marketing tool; it's a community-building instrument. Imagine the power you wield by bringing people together, united by a common journey or goal. It's not just about consumer relationships; it's about building a tribe. And when people choose to join your community, that's not just business—it's an honor. Go be awesome! Ready to dominate 2024?

We go beyond the usual chit-chat and really dig deep into how our disconnection from nature is contributing to exploitative practices and how crafting can bring us back in sync with our roots. All the while, we analyze the dominant stories we live by and their role in perpetuating these exploitative practices. Crafting for us, isn't just a hobby, but a powerful tool to reconnect with nature and rewrite the world's narrative. Hear us wax lyrical about the unique connection between our hands and brains, the history of makers, and the critical role dexterity and nerve connections play in crafting.Throughout this episode, we touch upon the multifaceted benefits of spoon carving which extends beyond relaxation and community building, to encompass aspects such as humility and mental health. Dave shares an engaging tale of a stolen hawthorn log and the cycle of gifting that it sparked. The real kicker though, is our exploration of crafting as a radical act, with scintillating discussions on how the practice of craft can transform the practitioner, foster mindfulness, and establish a profound connection. So, tune in and get inspired to pick up the carving knife and join the crafting movement!Episode links:Dave's Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/davethebodger/Nettlecombe Craft School - https://www.instagram.com/nettlecombe_craft_school/Jeffrey Earth Floors - https://www.instagram.com/jeffreythenaturalbuilder/Building Sustainability Podcast - https://www.instagram.com/buildingsustainabilitypodcast/Leave a review - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/building-sustainability-podcast/id1459369615https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortical_homunculusDave's links:The RYSE - https://linktr.ee/theryseA school called home - https://aschoolcalledhome.org/Book - At work in the ruins - https://tinyurl.com/yna8cfnxBook - Tyson Yunkaporta - Sand Talk - https://tinyurl.com/yt5y3e6yPodcast - Tyson Yunkaporta - https://open.spotify.com/show/2SYIwG9Yc91UeM79srVzTrDecolonial Futures - https://decolonialfutures.net/Martin Shaw - book - https://tinyurl.com/yll58s9vMartin Shaw - podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/in/podcast/smoke-hole-sessions/id1566369928Support the showConnect with me:IG - @jeffreythenaturalbuilderTwitter - @JNaturalBuilderFacebook - JeffreythenaturalbuilderLinkedIn - JeffreythenaturalbuilderSupport this podcast - https://www.patreon.com/buildingsustainability
