I talk with an agency owner who talks about how he has grown his team, how he's grown his agency. And when is the right time to bring in a VP of Operations and how did he do it? So let's sit back and check out the episode. Hey, Jason. Welcome to the show. Jason Smith: [00:00:24] Hey, how are you doing? Thanks for having me on. I appreciate it. Jason Swenk: [00:00:27] Yeah, man, I'm excited to have you on, I've gotten to know you over the past couple of years, but for the people that have not heard of you yet tell us who you are and what do you do? Jason Smith: [00:00:35] Yeah, my name is Jason Smith, owner and CEO of Spotlight Social Media Consulting. We're a, uh, Facebook and Instagram only, I say only because we're not an all-in-one, we're Facebook and Instagram only ad agency. So we do paid media for Facebook and Instagram. Jason Swenk: [00:00:52] Awesome. Now you have a quite interesting story of how you became an agency or really even what you were doing beforehand. So, yeah, I think it's interesting just to tell people kind of where you came from. Jason Smith: [00:01:05] Yeah, for sure. Yeah. Crazy story, actually. When I tell it, people take a 360-degree turn and they're like, wait, what? So I was a, a policeman for the Los Angeles Police Department for, gosh, just about 14 years before I became an agency owner. And the reason why it's kind of crazy is because I went from getting shot at, chasing gang members, getting into shootings, all this stuff, and the mean streets of LA. And literally, I mean that literally, I mean, we're talking about 250 homicides in six square miles in a year, and very violent places in, in Los Angeles. And, uh, went from that to, you know, the thing that kinda drove me to look for something else was number one, I was never home, was in court all the time. My days off were filled with court and overtime and it was just, you know, I never get to spend time with my family and I just, it was getting old, real fast. And it sounds cool when you're up on the stand testifying as a gang expert or weapons expert and all this stuff. But in hindsight, personally, it's not that fun. So, and you know, I've been involved in tons of, and literally tons of stressful situations. I've been in shootings and been shot at and all that stuff. And, man, for making $80,000 a year doing that. I just wanted to start looking for something else. And I stumbled across an opportunity where, you know, running Facebook ads was a core part of one of my friend's businesses originally, like with a supplement company. And he just kind of asked me buddy to buddy, like, hey dude, do you want to help me do these Facebook ads? I'm like, yeah, I don't, I'm a dumb policeman. I don't know how to do this, but let's try it out, you know. So I ended up getting some good results and then I did a little bit more research and ended up finding a certification course. And gosh, the rest is history. And next thing you know, I have, I had 10 clients, not even a year later and making, you know, 30,000 a month, which I never thought possible from home. And yeah, it was pretty cool. Jason Swenk: [00:03:05] So which is more stressful running an agency or getting shot at? Jason Smith: [00:03:09] Man, I don't know. I’m just kidding. Well, it's funny because people will. You know how clients are sometimes. They'll try to intimidate you or something or say something to you. I'm like, dude, relax. Okay. It's not that doesn't work on me, okay. So, and when I, when I shoot back stuff to them, they're like, Oh wow. This guy is not going to take my usual agency fluff here, right. You know, so it's pretty funny. Jason Swenk: [00:03:33] I interviewed an ex-Navy Seal and he was basically was like, look, we just went over so much of training when we get in situations. Like, we weren't stressed. And I was like, that's a great principle to apply, like in your agency, like go over this scenarios is over and over again. And it shouldn't be that stressful. Jason Smith: [00:03:52] Right. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I don't get stressed too much. Even my wife tells me like, man, you don't stress over anything. And I'm like, well, you know, after being shot at and being all these stressful situations, not, not much more in life is going to stress me out, you know? So. Pretty funny. Even the guys on my team, stress out about stuff. I'm like, guys don't, don't stress out about that stuff. Just everything will work out, so. Jason Swenk: [00:04:16] How has your agency grown in the past couple years? Like, what are some things that have worked for you that you wish you knew back when you were just getting started messing around with Facebook? Jason Smith: [00:04:29] Yeah. Well, I mean, number one, I think having great people behind you and supporting you. That's probably the number one thing. I mean, you know, I'll never forget how I found you was through Ralph at Tier 11, but it was funny because the first time I applied to work with you, you denied me because I wasn't big enough, right? But that was great motivation. No, no. And Hey, I mean, that's, and that's why you have an elite mastermind that you do because you get to pick and choose the people in it. And that's very important. And, um, I mean, I think number one, support and people behind you, I mean, Ralph and Deacon, those guys at Tier 11 have, you know, and still helped me today. I mean, those guys have been an integral part of why I've grown and there's no, like, even though we're the same, we do the same thing. There's plenty of business to go around. They're just cool guys. They've helped me a ton. Um, I could call Ralph right now and say, hey, you know, what do you think about this? And he would, you know, he would tell me and we could talk about it. So, that's I think probably the number one thing that's helped me the most and then being a part of, you know, probably your mastermind and the group and the support there. I can go to you or anybody else. And I mean, gosh, I just went to you recently, right? About some stuff and was, and you helped me out. So that probably for me is the number one thing. And number two is having a great team, you know, having a great team of people who you can, you know, like, and trust. And not get bogged down with people you can't trust or waste your time or whatever. Those are probably the two things that helped me the most grow the agency and where I'm at today. And I mean, I literally started from nothing. Like I had no clients, you know, and I tell the story on my podcast and Deacon from Tier 11 is the one that gave me, like my first two clients. And then it just kind of went from there. So, having that support structure and those people in your life. And I say your life, because it's not just all about business and you know, you and I could go out and have a drink or something. And we're good friends. I think outside of the business world, you know, we also like the same things, right. You used to ride motocross, you're a big Jeep guy. So that's very important, so. Jason Swenk: [00:06:34] Yeah, we'll party this summer. Jason Smith: [00:06:37] Can't wait. Jason Swenk: [00:06:38] I know. Talk about your team because a lot of people listening, they may be trying to scale their team, trying to grow their team. Where did you find them? How did you find them? How'd you evaluate them? You know, because, you know, that's an integral part. Jason Smith: [00:06:53] Yeah, for sure. Yeah. I mean, most of my team came from recommendations from the mastermind, um, your mastermind and, um, Ralph actually helped me out. Ralph and Deacon over there at Tier 11 helped me on how to kind of screen people, give them a little bit of a test, have them record a loom video. You know, you can tell a lot about a person when they record a quick video. And of course, they're going to be nervous and I think I'm a pretty fair guy. Like I can kind of read through the bs and the nervousness and stuff like that. But when it comes down to the core values of who they are as a person, you can tell a lot by just a five-minute video and it's, we send them basically a little test and say, hey, I want, give me a five-minute overview of this test. And it's not so much of a test. It's really just like an aptitude test of how much they know about Facebook because I. We all do it on resumes. We all overcompensate for all this stuff, right. And, um, for them going through this competency test just shows me how much they know. And then what I do is send them over to my VP of operations. And actually my VP of operations came from a referral from a friend of mine. He used to be a professional skateboarder was, was in the upper ups of Ogio. You know, the company, Ogio, big company. He used to work for them because he was a pro skateboarder. And then when he hurt himself, he went to work for Ogio and loved the operation side. So I got to know him. And just a cool dude, you know, and that's really what comes down to it in my opinion. And yes, they have to have a good work ethic, but if they're going to be part of your team, like, you gotta like them, right? You really do, you know, and people say, oh, well, keep your personal side out of it. Well, I mean, I tend to think there has to be a personal side in it to make a team really solid, a good culture and a team that you can trust. So that's kind of how we evaluate stuff and really it's me talking to them or interviewing them. I have a pretty good, from my background and experience as a policeman, I have a pretty good idea of a person, right. When I talk to them. Jason Swenk: [00:08:50] When they're lying or not. Jason Smith: [00:08:52] Yeah. Just slap them around a little bit, you know? Jason Swenk: [00:08:55] So, are you the good guy or the bad cop or good cop? Who would you play? Jason Smith: [00:09:00] You know, it's funny. A couple of people that I've met, like clients have said, oh man, you're, you're such a nice guy, but then when I saw you in person, I was like, oh man, like this dude, could do some damage. I mean, I'm not the tallest guy, but I, you know, whatever it is, what it is, I'm all tatted down. And I don't, I definitely don't look like the normal marketer. And I do talk about that in my podcast, how I went into this Facebook ad agency world and I don't look like your normal agency owner, and it's pretty funny. But I try to be the good guy, unless the bad guy has to come rear its ugly head. And if it does, you better watch out cause you may get pistol-whipped or something, you know. Jason Swenk: [00:09:36] I love what you said about, yeah, you have to like them. I think it's… and you have to have that similar belief in the values that you share as an individual, because I used to hire the wrong way where I would try to hire my identical twin because I'm hiring someone to pick up the clack for the stuff I suck at. And then if I hire my twin. Well, now we're going to have two people that suck at this one thing. It makes it a really big challenge. So a lot of times you have to figure out what do we personally believe in. Like, do we believe in resourcefulness, do we believe in failure and success and all this kind of stuff. And then, and it's not just about quizzing them and saying. Jason Smith: [00:10:23] Right, right. Yeah, exactly. Jason Swenk: [00:10:25] Coming up with scenarios that you can have them describe that a little bit with that. Jason Smith: [00:10:32] Well, and too, I actually made the mistake one time of hiring somebody who is too entrepreneurial. If you know what I mean? Like when you're an owner of a company and you're trying to hire like exactly what you said, you can't hire your identical twin because that twin is then going to want to take over and be too entrepreneurial and almost do his own thing, you know. Which, you got to follow the systems, you got to follow the policies we have, right. And an entrepreneur will not follow that. They need to be out doing their own thing. Um, and so I look for that as well. Like especially being a team player. And that's one of the, my biggest red flags is they say anything about me, me, me, then I'm like, then I kind of, have to side-eye them a little bit and say, I don't think this is going to be the right fit. So. Jason Swenk: [00:11:19] If you're like many agency owners, it's very hard to show results and show value to your clients for the hard work that you've done. And up until now, you've probably been using Google Analytics, which is really kind of clunky and hard to use and just been around a long time. And there really hasn't been an alternative until now. And I want to tell you a little bit about Oribi. Now I've checked out this tool and it's really pretty cool. It doesn't require any code for you to track interactions and conversions. There's no more jumping from different platforms. You can track your social and paid media really all in one place. And it really allows you to build smart funnels and get tons of insights. I mean, literally, I've even set it up where I could say I want this visitor to get to this particular page and it will tell me what's the likely chance that they're actually get to this page and what pages are actually coming from. It's really pretty cool. So if you want to really kind of get away from Google analytics, I want you to check them out, go to Oribi. oribi.io/smartagency. And just for my listeners, you're going to get 20% off for the first three months using coupon code smart agency. Let's talk about your VP of Ops of when you were looking to bring them on. Like, walk me through that scenario because a lot of times people don't know when to bring on that person. So what was the scenario of like, what was lifelike like in the agency and then we'll talk about the next. Jason Smith: [00:12:58] Yeah, well, actually I had come to you about that probably what a year and a half ago, and was like, hey, I had a couple account managers that were managing accounts. And what I noticed really quickly was that there was all this information in my head and things that I was trying to disseminate to them and balls were being dropped. You know, client communication wasn't the best. And they were coming back to me often saying, hey, Jason, I don't really know what to do here. And I'm like, what do you mean you don't know what to do? But it was in my head. It wasn't on paper, in an SOP, in any operations was not in the agency. And that's what I needed at the time. And you're like, Jason, you're just going to have to drop the money because I was worried about, do we make enough as an agency? Like how much does one of these guys costs? I mean, all the things you don't really know about. And then when I finally found Eric and it was almost, it was a referral, I didn't really know he was good at operations. I kind of hired him to be a video editor because he's a high level video guy. And then he's like, oh, by the way, I'm also really good at operations. And I'm like, oh shoot, really? Awesome. And then he's like, hey, I've been looking at all this stuff at the company. And I could really come in and help out with SLPs. And, you know, we didn't have a project management system at the time. Like we didn't have Trello or. Uh, I mean, we had Slack, but Slack is not a project management system. It's a communication tool, right? And we kind of talked about it and he came in and all of a sudden, next thing, you know, six months later, we actually have things documented and hey, this is what you do to like reach out to Facebook and, and appealing an ad account that's been disabled and everything started coming down in writing, and it was really cool to see that process evolve. And it's still evolving today. But it makes it easier for when we bring on somebody new. Hey, okay, review these videos. This is the kind of first step here. And, uh, yeah, we've evolved a lot as an agency since then. It's been pretty cool. Jason Swenk: [00:14:50] And walk me through when you actually started onboarding him or when he started, did you just kind of give him like, here's what we need to do, go do, and then he'd just go execute. Or did he start coming up with all the, you know, hey, getting off Slack as a project management tool and that kind of stuff. Jason Smith: [00:15:05] Yeah, no, he was great. I mean, he, he had the experience from Ogio to be able to come in and say, okay, these are the top-level things that we need to integrate, which is SOPs and what happens in this scenario and, you know, Facebook's pretty complicated. So there was a lot of things and we kind of sat down one day for half the day and he just went through and picked my brain on everything and just kind of wrote it down. What are the most important things when we onboard a client, like we need to have a system for this stuff. So, you know, the account managers, when they onboard somebody, they can just check the boxes, which is really cool. And I mean, honestly, he's been probably one of my biggest assets in the, in the company and the growth right now. And he went in and went in lucid chart and like mapped out, okay, you guys, we're going to have 10 account managers by this date and we're going to be doing these things. And. It's really cool, you know, to have somebody like that. And, um, at first I thought, man, I gotta pay him all this money, but look how much money we're making now. It's pretty awesome. Jason Swenk: [00:16:03] Yeah. I mean a lot of people, they go, well, I don't know if I can fill up this person full time, because I think the holdup in their mind or their, their mindset is I need to come up with everything that they need to go do. Which I think is a mistake, and a lot of people don't really. Jason Smith: [00:16:18] Right. Well, not really, but yeah. Jason Swenk: [00:16:20] Yeah. It's just like, I have to detail everything I want you to go do, rather than just saying here's where the agency's going. Now you're the how person. I'm the where and why you're the how, right. And you just go execute it. And like you said, you hired the right person. It's going to be amazing. Jason Smith: [00:16:38] Yeah. And you may not hire the right person the first time, you know, I mean, and don't get me wrong. We've had our ups and downs and we've had our disagreements and, but that's just, I mean, that's life in general, you know, and you just gotta get through it. He's a great guy, great person, very organized. He's an operations dude. That's exactly what I needed. You know, cause I am not an operations guy and I do not know how to go into Trello and build boards and cards and all that. Like, I hate doing that stuff. So I'd rather be talking to somebody about our agency and how good we are at Facebook ads and, and running high-quality Facebook ads. That's what I'm good at. Jason Swenk: [00:17:14] Awesome. Well, this has all been amazing. Jason, is there anything I didn't ask you that you think would benefit the listeners? Jason Smith: [00:17:20] No, I just, uh, the only thing I do want to add is, is when you're ready to hire an agency for your Facebook ads, make sure you interview them. You have some great questions for them. If you have a resource that you can reach out to, to ask if, hey, if this agency is good or whatever, don't blame the current agency coming in for all the stuff that happened before, because chances are, you know, if you hire the right agency, they can be a good partner. And I want to stress the word partner because a lot of times. Business owners don't think a Facebook agency is necessarily a partner, but we're helping you grow your business triple and quadruple your business. And that's what we've done for companies. And that's why they'll never leave us is because we've grown them so much. And we're such an asset to their brand. They'll never, they'll never leave. So it's pretty cool. Jason Swenk: [00:18:06] That’s awesome. And where can people reach out to you if they want to chat more about Facebook and I highly recommend they do an amazing job. So where can they go and check it out? Jason Smith: [00:18:15] Yeah, they can go to, um, spotlightsocialadvertising.com or reach out to me. Jason at spotlightsocialllc.com. Jason Swenk: [00:18:23] Awesome. Everyone, go check them out. Reach out to Jason. They do an amazing job. And if you guys want to be surrounded by amazing agency owners, like Jason and many others, and just really be able to have that sounding board, that board of advisors to show you or see the things you might not be able to see and just have a lot of fun doing it. Make sure you guys go to digitalagencyelite.com. That's digitalagencyelite.com apply and maybe we'll have a conversation and then maybe you get to hang out with Jason and I and a bunch of other really cool people. All right. Till next time, have a Swenk day.

Still, the GQue BBQ team is dedicated to serving the best BBQ catering services in Denver and beyond. “The BBQ isn’t going to sell itself,” Jason Ganahl admits about GQue BBQ restaurants in the greater Denver area. “We’re not in Kansas City, we’re not in Austin and we’re not in St. Louis.” Listen to this barbecue podcast episode and learn and let us know what you think about this episode featuring Jason Ganahl of GQue Championship BBQ by emailing the Cali BBQ Media team at podcast@calibbq.media.  ***   Learning to Hustle Online — “I started making videos about seven years ago,” Jason Ganahl says about his early YouTube ventures. “Ironically, I taught myself how to make YouTube videos by watching how-to YouTube videos. I never really took it seriously, at first my goal was just to get 100 subscribers. We got to 10,000 subscribers.” By teaching himself through other content creators and the rich resources of the internet, Jason was able to build his brand to an audience also obsessed with barbecue. Like joining competitions as a judge, it all stemmed from passion and fun, not finances. https://youtu.be/BeLTD9lA34s “You can’t get into YouTube thinking you’re going to make money,” says Jason Ganahl about building a YouTube channel. “It’s a passion project. I would do it on the weekends, but as my kids got older, I just didn’t have time to do it. YouTube loves consistency, so now I just fired my channel back up and it feels like we’re starting from scratch. I’m on YouTube every single day now.” As expected, the daily digital grind for Jason isn’t just publishing videos to YouTube. Rather, it’s a variety of social media platforms that allow him to engage with a community that shares the same passion or region as him. For Jason, being on top of his digital game is a mix of connection and metrics. “Your online reputation is pretty much everything nowadays,” admits Jason. “So, I look at Google and utilize that. I utilize the conversations I have with the employees that I have. I utilize the conversations that I have with the guests to utilize all the direct messaging that we get from all of our guests to kind of get a sense of where we're at and what our perceptions are and in how we're performing.” When it comes to his own Digital Hospitality, Jason Ganahl is well aware of the power online resources give him and his GQue BBQ business. At first, the internet was the bridge for him to learn more about barbecue and become a judge at contests. Next, it was how he learned to make YouTube videos and build his brand. Now, it’s how he connects with his community and learns just how good of a job his business is doing. In addition to founding GQue BBQ, Jason Ganahl is also the founder of Ice Cream Farm. So, what’s Jason’s advice for you when it comes to digital hospitality and building a brand online? “Stop just putting pictures of food out there, people want to connect with you!” beams Jason Ganahl on the Digital Hospitality podcast. “You can’t let the fraction of people who will judge you determine your outcome. You’ve gotta think about the 80% of people who want to support you and want to see you succeed. Innately, I think people want to help people and it breaks my heart to see people too scared to put themselves out there on social media because of fear of other people.” *** Read more about Jason Ganahl and GQue BBQ on our C...

In fact, some conversations for Problem Solvers become articles or interviews for the magazine. In this episode, Jason talks about why podcasting is valuable for brands. Jason and Erik discuss the intimate nature of podcasts and how that can build a dedicated fanbase.

Jason Harris is Co-Founder and CEO of Mekanism, an award-winning creative advertising agency. Jason is the author of The Soulful Art of Persuasion that highlights the 11 habits you need to become more authentically or soulfully persuasive. He proves that persuasion is not a dirty word, but the most positive, productive, and ethical way of changing peoples’ minds through the cultivation of character building habits. Become a person with more fulfilling experiences and more authentic personal relationships! Tune in to this episode to learn the power of positivity and persuasion, collaboration, storytelling, building lasting relationships, and actionable habits that you can implement to become a master influencer.  Why did you write The Soulful Art of Persuasion? What was the inspiration behind it? He’s an avid reader, listener of podcasts, and loves reading business books. As an entrepreneur, he’s figuring out how other people approach business and sales, so he consumes that type of content. It dawned on him that there’s something different about the way he approaches business and the principals he follows compared to everyone else’s approach. He saw transactional, short-term methods of building a business rather than relationship and long-term focused methods. He had a different angle and a different thing to say in the business book atmosphere. To Jason, the idea of being a soulful persuader and influencer is being an influencer in your personal and professional sphere. What are the core principals of your book and how did you develop these principals? Jason worked at a lot of different companies before starting his own and he felt like he didn’t respond well to a lot of the company cultures he was experiencing. There wasn’t much of a space where people could feel truly themselves and be original, so he learned a lot of what he wanted to create and the ways he wanted to work from seeing what other people were doing, both positive and negative. He kept a journal of these ideas and beliefs until he developed the four core beliefs that he follows to this day. The four principals are: be original, be generous, be empathetic, and be soulful. His inspiration also came from books he was reading, the way people made him feel, and seeing success growing from long-term relationships. How did you decide that those four, out of all the principals we could live by, were essential? The 11 habits he mentions in the book fall under these categories. Being soulful came last to him, but the other three came from a balance of business, how he wants to pursue his life, and the type of person he wants to be. Some of the habits came naturally to him and some he had to practice and develop over time. What’s an example of something that was not natural for you? Jason isn’t a naturally generous person. He says he was born on the more self-absorbed and slightly selfish side. Through work and growing up and his experiences, he realized that it’s a characteristic that’s really important. When working with big brands, how do you tell a story that can build a sense of trust, but that is also not transactional? You can’t always do that. They’ll send you a brief of what to talk about and then you come up with the creative work off of that brief. You have to absorb what they’re saying and what they want to accomplish, then crack the creative and spit it back to them with ideas that position the brand in a way that you feel is right. It’s always a dance with what you feel the audience will respond to and what the brand thinks they will respond to. He tries to embody the principals of being original and knowing the audience. Do you think the art of storytelling in a way that connects with the person or brand applies to long-term relationships? Definitely, 100%. When he talks about relationships, there are personal and professional relationships and you have to approach them in a similar fashion. Can you share with us your journey and how you got to where you are now? Jason is an odd duck in the sense that he knew he wanted to be in advertising at the age of 12 or 13. Both his parents were teachers so he grew up in an academic household. He was a TV junkie and would always break down and study the stories in between the shows he watched. He realized that must be a fun job to create those advertisements and the first time he thought he was persuaded was around the same age when the band KISS transported him through storytelling. Stories can be from your heart, your life, books you love, music, and movies. Success in a lot of areas is built on storytelling techniques. Did you get your degree in advertising? Jason got his degree in economics to make his parents happy, then he hustled to get his foot in the door at a design firm, then a few advertising agencies doing direct mail, strategy, and production. He got a feel for how business is done and what it’s like through these different areas of the companies. With a decade of advertising under his belt, he started a production company, and then a couple years later, he co-founded Mekanism which has been around for over 10 years. Looking back, had your journey been a bit confusing but now makes sense? Yes, when you start out, it meanders a lot and he did have aspirations to open his own company after college. He didn’t know exactly what area or that he wanted to be CEO but he had that entrepreneurial spirit. It’s interesting how your journey can be both focused and flexible. The hardest thing is figuring out the industry you love and what skills you have that you can apply in that industry. What’s an obstacle, fear, or limiting belief that you feel like you encountered in your journey of figuring out the path that you really wanted to be on? For Jason, he likes to have control. When he moved to having partners, from having all the control in his own company, the limiting thing for him was: can he learn to let go and let other people take the reins and control their areas? That was a really hard thing for him to learn and he feels like he’s good at it now, after a few years of learning. How do you build trust? Today more than ever, trust is so important because we’ve gotten so entrenched in our beliefs. We watch the stations and follow the social media that are going to tell us what we believe is right. We have to try and open this view about the idea about empathy and understanding and being curious about other people. That builds trust. When we, in business, think about techniques like mirror matching our audience to help sell something, that’s not building trust, that’s not being vulnerable or showing who we are. When you’re allowed to tell stories to people you might not even know, that allows them to do the same, and it allows trust to be built. Listening and trying to learn more than you might be judging other people also builds trust. Empathy allows you to collaborate better. That’s another aspect of persuasion, joining forces with other people. Look at other people and see that we’re really not that different from each other. Seek the common ground and approach everyone as an equal, thinking about collaboration. Can you share one or two of these 11 habits that can be really simple and practical that we can apply today? One thing Jason always thinks about in business is this notion of never be closing. It’s an idea of shifting your thinking, when you’re thinking about any deal, and going against the transactional way of thinking that will sabotage your attempts at persuasion. Thinking about building a relationship rather than closing the deal. If you do that, the impact of what you’re actually trying to close magnifies. Another thing is trying not to let your relationships drop to zero. Think about reaching out to five people every week to keep those relationships going. When it comes to social media, how do you think about sharing your interests with everyone vs reaching out and sharing with a particular person or group of people that would care about that issue. Could you post something on Instagram and share it personally with another person? Either way, it’s the ability of thinking about it as an act of generosity and thinking of who might benefit from this piece of knowledge and the connection. It’s the mindset that makes a big difference. Can you share a story of a time where you didn’t have a relationship with somebody but you wanted to foster one and the process you went through to make that happen? Jason shares about a business relationship where he met an interesting guy at a conference, how he wrote him a letter about how great he thinks his brand is and sent him a Mekansim hoodie. That meant a lot to him and about six months later, they decided to put the business up for review and threw Mekansim into the mix because he had that memory on his chest all the time. Now, they’ve been working together for over six years. Let me know if you agree, I think complementing people is so underused. Jason agrees! Reach out to your role models to express your thoughts and the impacts of the business on you personally. Let them know you’d love to have a follow-up conversation about it, that’s how you build a relationship. There’s so few people who do that nowadays and when someone does that, it’s super powerful. Part of persuasion is that awareness of the other person and generosity, acknowledgement, and research on who you want to network with can be very similar to complements. What’s a question you ask yourself a lot in terms of business in order to move it forward? He’s always thinking about: are the messages that we’re putting into the world positive stories? Are we filling the world with more positivity or are we just adding to the negative noise? What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? This idea that business is a marathon and not a sprint. Building your career doesn’t have to happen as fast as you think it has to happen. Allow yourself to realize that you can take time with it. Allow yourself to know that relationships do take time and work and you always have to exercise that muscle. I think the essence of business is relationships, what’s your take? Yeah, that’s all it is. It’s relationships with people and that’s it. Any last thoughts? The idea of soulfulness in business – something that’s helped Jason is trying to be inspirational in whatever career or industry he’s in. It does help you become more influential and feel good, putting positive things out there and inspire by giving back. Direct your skill(s) towards something that’s bigger than yourself, like teaching tennis in low-income areas. It’s a very important aspect of success. Do you use the word intention in your work? He doesn’t but now he’s going to because he really likes it and it’s important! Connect with Jason + Get his book: www.thesoulfulart.com

It brings together 140 of the nation’s top real estate investors on a quarterly basis to brainstorm about housing market changes and to share their most intimate secrets, strategies, resources and systems. In 19 years of his career in real estate & finance, he has partnered in over 1300 multi-family doors with CG members and funded North of 1500 Loans. Therefore, Jason has built a strong foundation in his business, a huge wealth and portfolio. Hence, this pandemic doesn’t have an effect on the stability of his company and still be able to move forward towards his goals. The connection is what Jason enjoys focusing on, that’s why he co-founded the Collective Genius (CG) that will celebrate its 10 years in February 2021. At the moment, it continues forming a strong community of entrepreneurs. Despite this quarantine, its 144 members still do life together and show up virtually for a mastermind. Accordingly, it still creates a community and massive results.  Though it is typical to feel a little bit guilty about being very fortunate for doing well these days, he suggested staying humble and giving empathy on all sides. On the bad side, if you’re currently struggling, try to ask yourself why. For Jason, this pandemic reveals the real problem that you've been neglecting for so many years. But even with Jason’s achievement, he admitted that there were times he still feels fears to fall down and to lose the momentum. But manage to flip the positive side and just create awareness. According to him, in order to win against COVID-19 is to focus and determine how you thrive and strive when an opportunity presents itself. Always be prepared for the opportunity.  Besides, to win is to not wait for the pandemic to go away but learn to function in the environment you’re in right now and navigate it better than anybody else, be empathetic, and find the way to get the desired outcome.  Some Questions I Ask:  When did you start Collective Genius?

OVERVIEW: Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast talks about the importance of 'shutting off your brain' on occasion to achieve better mental health and clarity. He shares various ways to disconnect in order to reconnect and run your business more effectively.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Entrepreneurs are a completely different breed of individuals. Oftentimes, they're thinking about the business and how to make it better and easier for their customers. Entrepreneurs and business owners have a difficult time disconnecting mentally.  Taking a mental break is crucial for clarity and health. The subconscious mind is incredibly powerful. It works hand in hand with your conscious mind.  Jason recommends disconnecting the conscious and engaging your subconscious to achieve mental relaxation.   Get involved in an activity requiring immersion. For Jason, physical activity or sports works best. Other options include playing video games, watching a movie or reading a book.

Shine yourselves because it is the Sixteenth episode of the Kink Kloset!Lubing themselves up next for the Kink Kloset is none other than the lovable rubberman, Jason! Jason was raised in country Western Australia and grew up with a passion for motorcar racing. It was with racing where Jason became a high profile person in his local community. For the longest time, he felt like he was in two worlds, juggling his core being and his public profile. Eventually, Jason moved to Melbourne and came alive in this sex-positive city. Once in the community, he knew that he wanted to channel the same passion he had for motorcar racing, and help make the community thrive. In 2019, Jason was awarded the 2019 Melbourne Rubberman Title and has been an active member of the Australian Kink Community.As kinksteers and queer people, we are always dealing with a sense of belonging and looking for those places which make us feel comfortable and safe. For Jason, it was a struggle to connect to his kinks being in such a remote community. He also found it challenging to be comfortable with his kink self when his mates ridiculed kinksters because it wasn't the status quo. We then discuss on how great it is during these times to be able to connect to so many communities, where Jason reflects on the great success of Melbourne Rubber.

    Jason Tremere lives in Eastern Canada where he has a background in the computer science field as a programmer. He did systems analysis and even became an IT auditor. For the last 20 years or so Jason has done investing. When he was at one corporation he ran two investment clubs. He had about a dozen people in each one and they would meet weekly. In these clubs Jason would tell people what he looked for in a stock. Jason actually would have people put money in the market and they would watch it. Jason has decided that since he can teach this in person, it's time to teach people the same things online through his very own membership site! What You'll Learn: If you can teach in person, you can teach online. (6:30) What it means to figure out your next step. (12:50) You've got to be relatable. (17:45) The price doesn't really matter in the beginning. (19:00) How often do you communicate with your members? (22:57) How to let your content flow into other platforms. (25:00) Why you don't want to teach on your YouTube channel. (26:15) How to do one thing until it's done. (29:35) A bigger market is not always better. (33:00)   Show Notes Investing has really been a hobby for Jason for the last 20 years. He truly enjoyed the analytic side of watching investments, helping others learn to understand and love it too.   If you can teach in person, you can teach online.  For Jason the appeal of bringing his work online is because he is not currently doing any work in person, but he still continues to invest in the stock market for himself. Some days making thousands of dollars. Jason is a master of all trades when it comes to investing. Not only does he invest in Canadian stock, but trades in the US too. And, then he invests in gold when the time is right for that market as well. Jason's online membership would look like a paid virtual version of his invest clubs. He says that he could taking the people that are new to investing through the very foundational steps, taking them from mutual funds into ETFs. Then, he would take them into the active versions of investing that he likes to do. That area of online business is weird because everyone has their own little way they like to invest. It's so personality driven even though a lot of people try to teach the stock market in online business. It's all about, “can you do it and can you teach me how to do it?” It's an easier nut to crack in the online business world if you know what you're doing!   What it means to figure out your next step. When we see someone with so many questions swimming around in their head, sometimes it's easier to say, “here's your next step.” For Jason, this is probably what will work best: He doesn't want to be convincing people to join the stock market. He should start his avatar at helloing moving the mutual fund into the market. That is really appealing to a lot of people! Here is what this does for Jason: It lets him be himself. He doesn't have to do anything different he just has to tell his story.  Most people don't want spread sheets, they want the story. The why you do it they way you do it. When they get in the membership and pay you money, then they'll care about your spread sheets.   You've got to be relatable. We are in a Facebook group with a bunch of very successful entrepreneurs. One day someone asked what was successful. Of course I said, “get 200 people to pay you $50/month and make $120,000. Low energy, you get time with your family, you get to serve people.” I got hammered because this was all bro-marketers, Lamborghini driving gurus. They didn't get contentment and happiness. It's about real people and what they want. It was awesome to hear what Jason said drew him in to us: it was simply seeing an add with our tee with a math equation of how many members it takes to make $60K/year. Jason wasn't looking for the 6-figure people.

Why is empathy so important in the discussion of masculinity? For one, it's important to understand but also interpret back another person's feelings. But it also allows you to walk in their shoes and understand how they feel. For Jason, Empathy is at the core of the work he does with Jubilee Media as the CEO. Jubilee is a digital media company that believes in the power of empathy for human good. With over 5 million subscribers, Jubilee is creating a global movement. Some of the topics we discuss on this week's episode include why Jubilee discusses the topic of masculinity so much, the importance of empathy in the masculine journey, how we've created unhealthy systems of manhood and dating, and the grey area in conversations about consent.

When we got a Voxer message from Jason Geiman a few weeks ago saying ‘you're not going to believe this we got 100 members.' We were pumped! Then, much to our surprise, we got a message a few days later saying Jason and his wife Jody's membership had reached 150 members we were blown away! So, we were absolutely floored when we heard Jason and his wife had reached 189 members! That means their membership site is making more than $10K each month!   The 'lowdown' on Jason: Full-time firefighter Previously owned his own pressure-washing business Now makes a 5-figure monthly income from his pressure-washing online membership https://www.pressurewashhelp.com   What You'll Learn: How To Turn Your Membership Into A Community (9:10) You Don't Know How Far Your Stone's Throw Will Go (14:15) Your Membership Gives You and Your Family Freedom (17:45) Your Safe, Secure Job Is Not So Safe (21:50) Become Less Accessible (34:20) How Often Should You Offer A 30-Day Trial?

After some time, they had grown that business to about $1M. However, in 2018 they sold that business. The Geiman family had been listening to the Flipped Lifestyle Podcast for several years prior to 2018. In the fall of 2019, they came to our Flip Your Life Live event. Back then, they had about 2 members. We, of course told them to build their audience, hammer that nail over and over again. For them, this meant taking the view off of the memberships. But, what built their 5-figure monthly income with 189 was: learning to gain trust, learning to build their audience, start getting testimonials and success stories. Since then, the Geimans have been very active on YouTube, so that is where most of their online traffic has been coming in. This year, Jason has been uploading 4 YouTube videos a week, getting their channel around 200,000 views a month. Which is where now, they sell their memberships and get around 20-30 members a week, talk about being prolific! Turn your membership into a community. Not only is Jason getting members, but building a community. He is having not only his videos for the members, but members are posting videos of their stories and growth, in a personal Facebook group. Therefore, they are growing together! It keeps people paying over and over again. You have to show up consistently for your audience. If someone wants to learn how to pressure wash, there's probably not someone around that can do that. But for Jason's members, he is there for them, wherever they are. He is accessible. Now they can build this business, now they can do this thing, through Jason's community. These members are not in competition with one-another because they are from all over. They are spread out. Now they have a community that they can collaborate with. Give your members: Content to learn how to do ____ faster and without having to make a bunch of mistakes. Build a community of people they can lean on and are in it with it. A leader (you, as the expert), that can walk them through whatever it is that you are teaching. Encourage and empower them they can do this too!   You don't know how far your stone's throw will go. This goes back to why we started our membership site to begin with. We wanted to not only provide for our families, but help others do the same! It's about waking up everyday and throwing your stone into the pond. For Jason, his online membership already changed the life of a local fireman. Can you imagine how many ripples and waves throwing his stone for that person, and all of his members looks like? Who knows? The business that your members are creating to provide for their families may be passed down through generations. A generational gift that will continue to help families for years and bless...

We had a blast chatting it up with Eduardo and Jason of Men's Vows. An online magazine dedicated to sharing advice and inspiration for gay weddings AND the first wedding directory exclusively for grooms! Eduardo Braniff is founder and Editor-in-Chief of Men's Vows. Leveraging his expertise in editorial, branding and experiential design, and having attended over 175 weddings in his life, Men's Vows is a natural intersection of his professional and personal experience. Men's Vows is dedicated to supporting men who marry, helping create new wedding traditions and celebrating men who've found “their man.” Men's Vows shares advice and inspiration from engagement to honeymoon, illustrating the process from “I will” to “I do” and beyond. Founded five years ago, Men's Vows is proud of being one of the largest gay male wedding sites, with over 75K followers on Instagram, countless couples who have selected us as the platform for sharing their love story, and being part of changing how everyone understands and embraces what it is to get married today. Jason Mitchell Kahn is the owner and creative director of his own namesake wedding planning company Jason Mitchell Kahn & Co., and the “In-House Expert” for Men's Vows Magazine. Jason began working full time as a wedding planner after the 2014 launch of his new book GETTING GROOMED: THE ULTIMATE WEDDING PLANNER FOR GAY GROOMS Jason's work experience spans from serving as resident Wedding Planner for Shiraz Events to being the In-house wedding expert at Soho House New York. While at Soho House New York, Jason also designed, planned, and ran fashion shows, book launches, art festivals, movie premieres, opening nights, gala dinners, and awards shows post parties. The job took him around the world from Oscar parties in L.A. to events held in chateaus in Cannes and even an underground subway station in Toronto. Jason brings to weddings his passion for drama honed from his career and education in theatre. Two of his plays had professional premieres in New York and have since had productions around the world. Jason approaches all weddings with his playwriting background: What is the couple's version of their most beautiful story to be told? *Big Takeaways * For gay men, and lesbian women, it has only been about five years since the marriage equality law has been passed. It's relatively new. Finding a wedding planner who understands your wants and desires is so important. Jason and Eduardo are fighting hard to make it accessible, and easy for every couple to have their dream wedding. Men's Vows allows for representation of all types of people, not just the picture perfect, model-esque couples. Most men are not targeted in the wedding industry, and neither are lesbian women. For Jason, he sees the importance that marriage could have for the non-traditional scenarios. It's important to find your flavor and taste and make the day for you. Just because the known thing is most common doesn't mean you have to do it! There is no steadfast way to wed. It's important to take a look at every element of the wedding, and see if you are doing something because you feel like you have to, or because you want to. Aside from signing the paperwork, it's your day to play with and make your relationship shine. Pinterest is a beautiful place to get inspiration, but it's also important to acknowledge that it's not always representing the typical budget or set-up for a wedding. You don't have to have an insane budget to have a special and meaningful day. When it comes to putting together who to invite, there are beautiful, kind ways of letting the people you love know you love them, but that they aren't invited to the wedding. Jason talks about receiving a letter from a couple who are dear friends that explain how much they are excited to have him in their life, and can't wait to share about the wedding. It is a nice way to make people not feel forgotten or unwanted, but makes it clear that there just isn't room without having to be so blunt. Quotes “The princess fantasy becomes the bride fantasy. But where is the prince fantasy that becomes the groom fantasy?” - Eduardo “I love the idea of wedding as culmination, instead of wedding as beginning.” - Eduardo “One of the things that I do want to underline, particularly in the gay space where it's sort of like, ‘chart your own course, and everything's independent, and reinvent the rules!” If you wanna walk down the aisle with your mother or your father and like hand over a bouquet, and raise a veil, and do in sickness and health vows, go and do that!” - Jason “Every article, and every picture that has ‘performed better,' in these days of digital metrics, are the ones where it's an unexpected pair.” - Eduardo Links We Referenced https://mensvows.com/ instagram.com/mensvows Get In Touch EMAIL: thebigweddingplanningpodcast@gmail.com FACEBOOK: @TBWPpodcast FACEBOOK GROUP: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TBWPP/ INSTAGRAM: @thebigweddingplanningpodcast BE SURE TO USE THE HASHTAG: #planthatwedding PHONE: (415) 723-1625 Leave us a message and you might hear your voice on the show!

Are you living your best life? Sadly, most people aren’t because they’re in a constant cycle of overconsumption and indebtedness, and mindlessly spending on things that don’t add value to their life or purpose. Today’s guest was once in that exact spot.  Jason Vitug, author of You Only Live Once, remembers how the path to success was drilled into him growing up. It’s the same path we’re all told to follow – graduate high school, go to college, get a job, get a car, get a promotion, buy a house – pretty standard, and oftentimes simply achieving these things doesn’t make us happy. For Jason, he started on this path and then began to question it, asking, “When do I actually become happy?”  It’s this realization coupled with the concept of YOLO in reverse that became the topic for his book. In You Only Live Once, Jason applies YOLO to personal finance and discovers it’s not about instant gratification, but rather about long-term satisfaction. Listen in and learn how you can shift your money mindset and experience YOLO today and for years to come. This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

108: Academic Pediatric Gastroenterology, According to an MD

Specialty Stories

Session 108 Pediatric GI was a natural fit for Dr. Jason Shapiro, who was interested in diverse pathologies, performing procedures, and developing relationships with patients. Also, please check out all our podcasts on Meded Media for more resources to help you along your premed and medical school journey! [01:05] Interest in Pediatric Gastroenterology Jason is a pediatric gastroenterologist at Brown. He initially got interested in GI during the first month of his intern year. He likes the diversity of the field. It has a lot of procedures involved as well as research, immunology, microbiome, medication, and optimizing medication effects. [03:00] Traits That Lead to Being a Great PGI Physician Most of Jason's clinical time is dealing with kids with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, which are impactful conditions. You want to have as minimal effect on the child's daily life as possible. So you need to be empathetic, compassionate, and a hard worker. [04:00] Types of Patients Most kids with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) present themselves during early adolescence. But there's an uptake of very early onset IBD where kids less than 5 years old come in with it. For the most part though, new diagnoses are in early teens although it can run the spectrum. Their bread and butter cases for Pediatric GI include infants with gastroesophageal reflux, milk protein allergy, constipation, Coeliac disease, and functional abdominal pains. They're also seeing a huge increase in an allergic condition called eosinophilic esophagitis. At Brown, they work with a team of GI psychologists who help them manage some of those more complicated cases. Most of the referrals they get from a blank canvas. The majority of their new patient referrals from a general pediatrician have not had too extensive of a workup just yet. So there's a degree of diagnostic work that needs to be done. There isn't a huge amount of patients that they do procedures on. Although they're generally non-invasive, there are procedures that need general anesthesia. And this is something they don't just do without a good reason to do it. Out of the total numbers they see in clinic, Jason estimates 10% of them would be procedure-related. His typical week would involve doing endoscopies. When on call, they're probably doing more procedures than they like. So there's no lack. [09:10] Academic vs Community Setting For Jason, research is a very important part of his career. Even in residency, he was involved in an Ivy League research that he did all through fellowship and up until he was already an attending physician. As a PGI across the country, you need access to pediatric anesthesia, which means you need to be in an academic center. In New England, there's not much practice in pediatric GI so most of them are affiliated with an academic institution.  [10:08] Taking Calls and Work-Life Balance Jason takes calls between 8-10 weeks a year. Calls are variable. Their fellows take the first call from the ER or the community doctors. The calls may vary from a couple of calls overnight to a week of procedures, most of which are esophageal foreign bodies, mostly coins. Every now and then, they do a few GI bleeds and variceal bleeds. Jason believes work-life balance is an acquired skill in terms of working on time management and trying to get as much done. Since having his kid over two years ago, he had adjusted his work schedule accordingly. At every phase of the medical career, it's a hard adjustment. But having been in faculty for several years now, Jason has learned to set priorities and make the necessary adjustments. [14:05] Training Path The path to becoming a ped-GI doctor requires three years of general pediatrics. On your second year, you apply for fellowship and then you get into three more years of pediatric GI fellowship. Currently, some people are doing extra years within ped-GI. So there are advance fellowships in transplant hepatology, motility, and IBD. Competitiveness-wise, Jason thinks the subspecialty is generally competitive from a pediatrics field standpoint. Therefore, you want to have good letters of recommendation and good board scores. They recently graduated a DO fellow whom they think was one of the best fellows they've ever trained. For osteopathic students, just like any other traditional MD student, you have to have good letters and good scores. That said, he claims he doesn't see a huge stigma against DO as much as it used to be. If you're a good doctor, you're going to be good doctor regardless. [17:30] Working with Primary Care and Other Specialties What they wished primary care physicians knew was that they were able to spend more time and counsel some of the more basic stuff. He believes some of those cases could already be managed by a general pediatrician. But he's also aware that the primary care setting deals with a ton of patients to keep up with the demands. Major stuff they could be counseling on would be constipation or functional abdominal pain. But can be difficult to get the message across to families so it takes time. And sometimes, hearing it from a subspecialist is important.  Jason adds that there is an art to treating constipation. And explaining this to a family can take time. Investing time and energy early on is therefore important in terms of keeping the kid feeling well and helping the family understand the plan. Jason works closely with pediatric surgery, pediatric psychology (specific to Brown), pathology, radiology, and hospitalists. For Crohn's, he works closely with dermatology and neurology. [20:54] Special Opportunities Outside of Clinical Medicine There are a lot of opportunities in pharma. He knows a few people who practiced the subspecialty for a few years and ended up working at various pharmaceutical companies. Jobs in pharma can be widely varied. You can work on clinical trials or drug design, depending on your background and interest. There is a need within the bigger pharma companies to have input from physicians with clinical experience treating these diseases. [22:22] If He Had to Do It All Over Again... With everything that he knows now, Jason would tell his old self not to be too distracted by the salary discrepancies within different fields of medicine. No matter how much money you make, if you're not doing something you love, you're not going to be happy. Money isn't everything and it doesn't buy happiness. Still, Jason would still have chosen the same field, if he had to do it all over again. He loves the patients and their families. It's something he enjoys. He loves the science and the research aspects of the field. He loves the procedures. [24:05] The Most and Least Liked Aspects What he likes the most about his subspecialty is the ability to develop relationships with his patients and families. He finds it very rewarding. Jason has been in the same institution for 14 years in total now. He has seen kids from being small to graduating high school. He also likes the relationships he has built with colleagues and support staff. On the flip side, what he likes the least is the EMR. He does think that the business side of medicine is necessary but it can be ugly. There is this sense that you need to bring more money and you need to do more and it's tough. He is lucky though for being a part of a department that's really supportive and truly cares about child health. [26:45] Final Words of Wisdom Work hard. Find a good mentor. For Jason, having great mentors has been so important to him. Have somebody to guide you no matter what phase of career you're in. Find somebody you trust and who cares about you and your career. Your mentor doesn't have to be in your subspecialty. Be honest. Always treat everybody with kindness – your colleagues, junior and senior people, nurses, secretaries. You can't do your job if other people aren't doing theirs. You're a part of a team and it's important for you to understand that. [28:20] Final Thoughts for DOs I just would like to point out to this discussion around how DOs are not respected. It's not true. There are some programs out there that disrespect DOs but there's a lot of disrespect happening in general. So it's not a broad idea that if you're a DO, you're “lesser than.” As mentioned by Dr. Shapiro, they have had DOs graduating from Brown and DO attending at Brown. So if you're a DO interested in Pedia GI, there is hope for you. Just do your best. Links: Meded Media

All this forced him into the entrepreneurial life as a freelancer web designer. Jason has an insatiable desire to learn which has served him very well as a business owner.   Now he teaches property managers how to win. Jason helps property managers clean up their branding, marketing, and help them find revenue and growth.   During his youth, Jason always had the entrepreneurial spirit without even really knowing that’s what it was. At the core of people who are entrepreneurial, they know they are unemployable. For Jason that means that he creates positive uncomfortable change wherever he goes. Entrepreneurs need to allow ourselves to do what we need to do to lower the pressure around us instead of playing everyone else’s game.   Jason’s super power is his ability to see what other entrepreneurs can’t, combined with his curiosity that pushes him to figure things out. Confidence has always been an issue for Jason, he’s had to deal with imposter syndrome since the beginning, especially since he never considered himself the go to expert for property managers.   Solving Interesting Problems Opportunity can be very distracting for entrepreneurs because we tend to see it everywhere. On the positive side, we see that the world can be better. Entrepreneurs have always been the ones that have made people uncomfortable and moved the world forward. Jason never planned on being a property management coach. In the beginning he tried to work with multiple types of businesses and resisted it becoming his niche but a lot about the niche really started to appeal to him. Jason found that he loves working with property managers and seems to resonate with the type of entrepreneur that’s found in the industry.

Let us start off by saying EVERYONE deals with self-doubt. Especially when it comes to running your own business or making a big change in your life, it's normal to go through imposter syndrome. One way Caroline deals with self-doubt before starting something new is to acknowledge how much she'd regret not doing that thing. Yes, it's scary to navigate uncharted waters, but it's much worse to have never dipped your toes in those waters and always wondered "what if." For Jason, dealing with imposter syndrome and self-doubt comes down to challenging his own assumptions. Put your doubtful thoughts to the test and don't let them impact business decisions or life choices until they prove that negative assumptions are correct. Don't let self-doubt hold you back from getting started and don't compare where you are on your journey to the end of someone else's journey. QUESTION FOR YOU: What self-doubt are you currently dealing with in your life or business? Want to learn more about Wandering Aimfully?

Today on the show I have iPhone filmmaking master and TEDTalk Speaker Jason Van Genderen. I've wanted to have Jason on the podcast for a long time. He is a true inspiration to anyone who wants to pick up a camera and tell a story. He has made an industry out of professional shooting with iPhones for corporate clients, on commercials, music videos, and short films. Here's some more info on our guest.No script, storyboard or crew. No exposure to focus controls. A resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and a total memory of just 160MB. That was Jason’s unexpected entry into the global filmmaking stage back in 2008.‘Mankind is No Island’ went on to win numerous prestigious accolades at film festivals around the globe and was one of the very first exemplary​ films to champion a whole new emerging medium of iPhone filmmaking.With screenings and awards from Tropfest NY, Aspen Shortsfest, Palm Springs, San Francisco Short Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival right through to Sundance London, Jason’s made mobile stories that matter, becoming an unexpected voice for marginalized or emerging storytellers. It’s the very reason he proudly labels himself a Filmbreaker.An equally passionate educator, Jason’s talks have inspired audiences from TEDx Newy to the Aspen Ideas Festival; from countless televisions, how appearances to keynote addresses at film schools and festivals. His masterclass workshops continue to inspire both beginners and seasoned professionals alike. Jason Van Genderen has also consulted and collaborated with some of the world’s largest imaging brands, from Sony and Nokia to Nikon and currently Apple Australia. This year he also commenced an on-air role presenting guest segments on Channel 7’s ‘Get Arty’ children show, and has recently consulted to 7 West Media Group on broadcast applications for smartphone technology.When your introduction to puberty is selling pet rocks and wearing a back brace, you'd have to hope that the ability to think creatively comes naturally. For Jason, his life of creative problem solving was seeded by 20 years hard labor in the advertising & design industry... before turning his hand to short films. His reputation for quick thinking under challenging circumstances saw him carve an early niche, being a four-time winner in the 24-hour in-camera film festival The Shoot Out.Always a custodian of content over craft, in 2008 he experimented with filming on his mobile phone, making a short with no script, storyboard, actors, narration or budget. 'Mankind is no Island' went on to win Tropfest NY and numerous other accolades globally, by breaking every rule in the book. His unorthodox approach to filtering story with low-tech simplicity has seen him in demand internationally as a presenter on pocket filmmaking.There are NO MORE EXCUSES ANYMORE. You can tell your story with what's in your pocket.Enjoy my conversation with Jason Van Genderen!

Jason Crawford How did the journey begin? Jason worked at Amazon, this is when the seeds for Fieldbook started getting planted. It was surprising to him that companies dedicated so much time developing internal tools. Amazon focussed on building a system that helped track their internal recruiting. Years later, Jason joined a startup where he built internal tools for them too which was a data collection workflow tracking system. The problem with spreadsheets is that very quickly you end up using the system for things like project tracking, inventory and CRM, when in reality Spreadsheets are more specifically for those in finance.  Jason worked at Amazon, this is when the seeds for Fieldbook started getting planted. It was surprising to him that companies dedicated so much time developing internal tools. Amazon focussed on building a system that helped track their internal recruiting. Years later, Jason joined a startup where he built internal tools for them too which was a data collection workflow tracking system. The problem with spreadsheets is that very quickly you end up using the system for things like project tracking, inventory and CRM, when in reality Spreadsheets are more specifically for those in finance.  What did you learn from startups and what was instrumental to your learning when you were first starting out? Jason always wanted to start his own company, but over the years the motivation changed. Initially he didn’t want to work for anybody else, but as he matured he realised there’s a lot of people he could learn from. For Jason, running a company was the ultimate challenge and as he got more experience, he slowly shifted in the direction of running a startup all without a plan. From companies like Amazon, he learnt a lot about processes and vision. After Amazon, the startup in Seattle called: “Pelago” was a location based social network pre-iPhone. While working at the startup, he wrote software for feature phones like the Motorola Raze.  A lot of lessons from this, this was right around the time the lean startup movement was getting off the ground in 2008, Jason realised the value that Eric Ries was bringing and some of the lessons were really working well for Jason including doing monthly iterations of softwares instead of weekly.  Click Here For: Eric Ries Blog What is Fieldbook? Fieldbook is a simple online database that anyone can use as a spreadsheet. Fieldbook is a better solution for those use cases where you may be logging inventory, project management and using spreadsheets as a CRM. How did you validate the business case for Fieldbook? Validation goal is not something that happens once, it’s an ongoing process. It’s constant testing against users in the market. Before they had a demo or prototype, he went around asking people to show him their spreadsheets. Asked a number of questions that identified what people did with it, problems, what they used it for, etc.  After initial conversations, make a quick demo that shows people the concept that gets better feedback. What are the problems that people need to solve. Get people to try it. Start well before you think the product is ready, but start with your closest friends and family. Show it to people who know you the best and will forgive you how bad it is.  There’s a couple of perspectives on this, Reid Hoffman says that if you’re not embarrassed with the first prototype then you left it too late, others say well if why would you ever try and get feedback on a half baked product, but it’s important to remember both of these arguments are based around “launch time”, there’s really not a particular launch time because you’re constantly getting feedback. Your immediate network will give you your first 100 users. Then you go can go to BETA List which a platform specifically for products in BETA phase. When you have something a little more substantial you can launch your product on Product Hunt. There’s all sorts of ways to get people in, keep trying new things out and keep testing it.  At what point do you stop testing and you get ready for that launch? Look at both qualitative and quantitative metrics. Ask smart questions like: are people sticking with your product? Are people paying for your product? etc. The data you look at depends on your platform. For example, a SaaS platform you look at conversions, paying customers etc. For a social network you look at engagement, virality etc.  Andy Jones: Sustainable Growth = Top of Funnel (getting people on the product) + Magic Moment (when people see value in your product) + Core Product Value (on going value you deliver that keeps people retained). You want to start by proving Core Product Value before Top of Funnel and you’re not great at Magic Moment, because this teaches people what you’re doing will be worth it. Initially you’ll have to hand hold people through the process, at this point it doesn’t matter if things scale or not because you’re just proving core product value.  A lot of Entrepreneurs see the big launches that people are doing and go for big fancy launches but this results in premature launches, which means that people go into a leaky bucket.  How did you find investors? Finding investors is a lot like creating a product. Jason has raised a few early stage funding rounds now. It’s about starting with people you know, put together a pitch and show it to your closest friends and family. When you do this you’ll get great feedback on the opportunity, holes, and areas you need to work. Eventually you’ll be in a place where you’ve asked a lot of people and you’ve filled many of the loop holes that are present.  Then reach out to people in your immediate network, this may be angel investors or people that know angel investors. Ask them if they wouldn’t mind spending some time to review your pitch, if they are happy with it, they will pass it to others in their network or better yet, invest themselves.  Remember, if you can convince angel investors, you can convince larger venture capital companies.  What makes a successful pitch? Cover the basics, you need explain what you do clearly, quickly and concisely. Investors need to be able to tell what you’re doing very fast for them to be interested. Other things you want to consider include: explain the opportunity, explain the market, compare yourself and your alternatives and even compare yourself against those that aren’t competition but alternative solutions.  It’s important to know who your target market is and how they are solving the problem today. There’s always going to be different pitches for different businesses so don’t be too formulaic about it.  Resources:  Sequila capital Pitch Deck Template Fred Wilson AVC — Best Seed Pitch Ever Jason Lemkin Pitching Advice How did you get onto the App Sumo Platform? App Sumo actually approached Fieldbook. The deal they offered was very above board, they ensured that they aligned the incentives and it was scheduled months in advance. App Sumo understands what would be a good deal, and they write the copy once you provide them with screenshots, demo videos etc.  What are some of the pitfalls you would avoid if you had to start the process again? At some points they got distracted and lost sight of the original vision, you often do this as a you’re looking for a silver bullet, and then you realise there’s no silver bullet, there’s no a tonne of lead bullets! Success lies in the ability to do day to day execution, and staying true to the vision. As Jeff Besos says: stay stubborn to the vision and flexible on the details. Make progress and incrementally through daily execution.  How do you continue to get feedback now that the product is launched? Fieldbook built a waitlist and then got people off the waitlist if they agreed to do a user test. This worked better than usertesting.com because had an incentive to do the user test which in turn gave them invaluable feedback.  This is a great opportunity to ask a lot of questions. When users are using your product for the first time sign up, be the silent observer don’t help them because then you’ll understand how a user interacts with your product. There’s a catch 22 between Marketing and Building Product. What do you focus on and when? It’s an iterative process, as you iterate you’re going to capture more people who are going to be your user testers. At one point, nobody was even interested in testing the product and that’s when they realised that they are not pitching an interesting concept, so they needed to change the way they market the product. They iterated their way to a demo video to get people excited and then they built a product around what excited people.  Some people create a landing page like a one page site, but you can always use platforms like Product Hunt and a section called upcoming where you can use it to collect user subscriptions. It’s also important to start with a community, this could be a blog or a Facebook Group.  When people weren’t receiving the product well, how did you know it wasn’t the product but it was the marketing instead? Honestly, it’s about your vision. Some products start from a tech trigger. In the success business, you need a market, a technology that enables the product, price point the market is willing to pay and the right channels to reach the correct people.  You don’t need to start in one place you just need to ensure it comes together in the end It’s like seeing a mountain so far in the distance you don’t know how you’re going to get there, but at the same time it’s so huge that you don’t need to worry about the small details on how you’re going to get there Seeing that mountain in the distance and having the drive is what get you there You talk about everything coming together as a symphony, but how do know which area of the symphony isn’t working? There’s no formulaic approach to this. There can be all sorts of problems that could occur and it can be very difficult to find out where the issue is. You need to work on keep going to a deeper level, i.e. if your ad copy is not working, try change this, if there’s no results go to a deeper level and choose a new channel, see how things progress, if there’s no change here then question the market. Whatever you do, just keep going deeper. What have you seen that is best practice when it comes to creating a SAAS product? Your Marketing is your promise to the users and you win if you deliver on that promise. Just ensure you ask people what they are hoping to get out of the product or service. Success is getting people to that magic moment.  An interesting talk is about Josh Elman is that Twitter actually increased the number of steps it takes to complete your profile but it was successful because it was clearer and more intuitive. Twitter found that more steps actually led to higher conversions, so it’s important to be very clear in the steps when creating a SAAS Platform.  To hear a talk by Josh Elman click here.  Everyone needs to learn different lessons, but the top three takeaways are: Have the closest possible connection to the users Be data driven and be qualitative. Ensure there’s weekly iterations to the products.  Keep the momentum going and have a strong vision.

Rubrik is trusted by some of the world's leading companies, including Driscoll's, JLL, the Tampa Bay Rays and Berkeley College. In today's episode, Jason joins us to discuss sales recruiting 101 for founders. He starts by touching on the importance of building your product and getting market validation before hiring your sales team. He discusses how to think about hiring your first salesperson and whether it should be a lead generating SDR or an inside sales rep with closing experience.He talks about how what he pitches candidates on has shifted as the company has grown from startup to 400+ employees and how his interview style has changed with that growth. Jason tells us his favorite question to ask during the interview process and recommends using recruiters as a resource to fill pipeline. He says he allocates about 30% of his time to recruiting and finds it to be seasonal - spending a lot of his time in interviews and on phone screens. For Jason, when it comes to hiring, the most important thing is finding the right people. He even urges managers to be willing to fall short of hiring goals if you haven't found the right people during an interview process. He says every time you hire a salesperson, you should believe there is a chance they can be the number 1 salesperson at your company. Finally, Jason advises anyone who is hiring to be patient, keep a cool head and think long term - even if you are under intense pressure to fill roles - and he leaves us with a great quote: "good people fix bad process, good process and bad people is not a good situation."

The incredible teams at Maricopa Integrated Health System and Arizona Burn Center saved his life. Today, Jason is a Keynote Speaker inspiring people across the country to ‘keep going' and he is the author of BURNING SHIELD. “LIFE IS 10% WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND 90% HOW YOU REACT TO IT”.

I am excited to see him go on to his next journey. He loves life, he's got a bright future.” Both Jason and his son were gifted life. They are both miracles. Recently at the Night of Hero's Event, Maricopa Health Foundation honored Jason. The event opened with a dramatic video. On March 26th, 2001, Jason's squad car was rear ended by a taxi and engulfed in flames. His life changed forever. Dr. Daniel Caruso, MD Chairman MIHS, said Jason should have died at the scene. “People do not survive when their entire head and upper body is engulfed in flame and smoke. It is physiologically impossible”. Jason Schechterle not only survived, he is a hero and an inspiration. When asked if watching this video was hard, Jason says, “It's not difficult… I am enthralled, and humbled and so appreciative of what the people on that scene did that night. They are the heroes”. When Jason listens to what the firefighters and police officers did that night, and the opportunities they gave him to live, he feels they are the true heroes. He understands that being a First Responder is a true calling. For Jason to be here today, 16 years later, is a miracle. He came through something that no one else has survived. But, on March 26th, 2001, the twist of fate was on his side. A firetruck was sitting at that intersection. Great medical teams were put in place and they acted quickly. Dr Daniel Caruso, a kind and caring burn doctor, raced to the hospital and was in shock when he saw Jason. The doctor once told Jason that he wondered if he was doing him a favor trying to save him. Jason does not have memories of that night, but he loves the stories and the human side of it. He suffered 4th degree burns. Burns that go through the muscle, through the fat, all the way to the bone. Jason was not just surrounded by fire in the accident, he was on fire. He lost his entire physical identity. “Dying would have been easy. This path (survival) was not easy”. Instead, he was left with a long and painful road. He has had more than 52 surgeries. He never once wished he was dead, but having no memory from that night he says,” passing away would have been very simple”. What he was facing was fear and pain for a lot of years. Jason always chose life. He fought hard, both physically and mentally, to have a great life for his family, and to continue to reach out and help others. “Now that I understand the full power of the human spirit. There is nothing you can't overcome with a positive attitude. The sun rises. Life goes on, and you can either be part of it or not. It is that simple.” Jason explains that when he hears people saying life sucks, he thinks to himself there is nothing like life. “You can't give up on anything, and the sun is coming up tomorrow if you want it to or not. You have to be capable to see things that are bigger than yourself”. He believes that you have to find what moves you, what inspires you. Coming out of the hospital, Jason was prescribed a low dose antidepressant, but he realized with his huge support system, he couldn't fail. So, he only took the drugs for a very short time. He wanted to feel what he was going to feel and get through it. He did not want to take a chance of becoming dependent or addicted to something that would set him back. He embraced his feelings in order to get to the other side. The future came about when he and his wife found out that they were pregnant with their third child. Jason wanted to be stronger for his children. He had a responsibility to be the best dad he could be to his three children. Looking back, the toughest parts are really the best parts. His daughter was just 7, and his son at age 3, had a hard time dealing with what happened to their dad. His son would cry and run out of room saying,” you are not my dad”. This lasted for months. But now, at 18, his oldest son has grown into a “most beautiful soul ever put on this earth”. To tell his story, Jason decided to write a book, BURNING SHIELD, a legacy for his children. He wanted his story told accurately. Now a Keynote Speaker, Jason travels around the country as he continues to be inspired by telling his story to others. He continues to inspire and help others with whatever they are going through. He says that people always want to compare their adversities. Jason goes on to say you can't. “Your adversity is your own, and it is a very big deal, no matter what it is. You cannot compare adversities”. Many people want to share their stories with him as well. In 2010, following a speech to about 700 people, a NYC firefighter came up and told him that he had been through 9/11. And he was currently going through a divorce. He wanted to let Jason know that his story changed his life. His comment was powerful. Jason was humbled. If he can just touch one person by telling his story, it is worth it. His story is not about being burned or being a cop, it is about adversity, it is about life. He speaks to all age groups, all genres. Jason recognizes the courage it takes for people to walk up to him. He finds it heartwarming. Sometimes the looks that people give him can bother him and then sometimes not. Of course, he is “human”. He says he has good days and bad days like anyone. About 18 months ago, he started traveling alone. His eyesight makes it difficult, but in true Jason style, he does not want to travel with friends as a crutch. In a picture from his book, Jason is photographed alone on the golf course. This best represents his comeback. He had to overcome his adversity by himself. Even his wife acknowledges she couldn't do it for him, he had to do it by himself. This picture represents the serenity he feels. The one thing Jason wants everyone to take away from his story is “don't let the pain of today blind you from the promise of tomorrow. Your human spirit can shine so bright. Your attitude is everything. Just don't give up.” Jason Schechterle, and everyone touched by his story, his inspiration, is forever in debt to those heroes that saved his life.

Jason Van Orden helps influencers and thoughts leaders turn their expertise and ideas into courses, content and automated systems that amplify their income and impact. He has been doing and teaching this since 2005. Knowing his own authentic best self is central to everything he does. Jason and Jeremy Frandsen's Internet Business Mastery course was the reason Kevin Appleby and Graham Arrowsmith got to know each other. Jason and Jeremy created a Facebook Group for course buyers and the rest is history. If you are thinking about making the most out of the new year, then this episode is for you. Listen and find out how to leverage your own authentic best self. 11 years ago, that's 2005, Jason and Jeremy created the first internet business podcast with Internet Business Mastery which has produced over 340 episodes. http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/internet-business-mastery-business-development-and-internet/internet-business-mastery-get-paid-to-live-your-purpose Why Authentic Best Self? Jason has been practising “Authentic Best Self” for some years. The phrase itself is credited to Amy Cuddy from her new book “Presence, Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges”. (Amazon UK http://amzn.to/2hmJKu4 and Amazon USA http://amzn.to/2gi39aJ Jason sees Authentic Best Self as a continual self-awareness and understanding of the factors and strengths that contribute to YOU performing at your peak. Leading to you creating maximum value in the world, and enjoying maximum fulfilment and having maximum energy all from the work that you do. Amy Cuddy advises that when you need to show up as your best self, if you PRECEDE that by referring to some information about your values and your strengths, and you remind yourself of that regularly, the science shows that you perform at a higher level with less stress. Hence your creativity is better and your output is better. Authentic Best Self is an understanding and leveraging information that you are continually discovering about yourself that leads to peak performance that leads to impact in the world. So, how does Authentic Best Self work in practice? For Jason, it is literally a DropBox folder of stuff, of assessments that he has taken, of journal entries he has made, feedback letters from people. How does Jason use this information? When he is faced with a business opportunity, this self-insight, acts as a sort of compass. As entrepreneurs, you are faced with lots of ideas and opportunities than you can pursue, with your limited resources – time, energy, money – than you can apply yourself to with any form of efficacy. Jason uses these materials to remind himself that he performs best when he allows himself to work in a particular way. He can quickly assess whether the opportunity will lead to him being over-extended or stressed. It is a FILTER and a COMPASS. One of Jason's strengths is research. He takes in a lot of information. He looks carefully at existing systems. This is the root of his success. Alternatively, his wife is kind of the opposite. Jason builds into his business people who will avoid him taking too long. Whether that is his wife or having a business partner who is more of a quick start person. How would Jason advise listeners to create their ABOUT YOU understanding material? Ask your close friends and colleagues Reach out to 5, 6 or 7 people who know you well enough and whose input you trust. It might be in a conversation, sending an email or writing them a letter. Ask them “What are the things that you value in me most?”, “What are the times that you see me as the most passionate, or most effective?”, “What are the things that you can depend on me for?”.Why do this? Often, we discount our strengths. Because these things come naturally to us, so we assume doesn't everybody operate that way? That's why it is important for others to affirm your strengths. You can then OWN the commonalities and themes,
