When someone says to you - Make it EASY.

What does Easy mean? What actually makes something easy?

Turns out their are three factors to determine how hard or easy you will find a task.

Is something really getting you down - you just are avoiding it? This podcast will show you a set of tools to show you why it's that way and how you can turn it around.

In this podcast I'll explain what the three pasrts of easy are and then take you through a live weekly planning session I do with Academy students each week.

This is like no other planning session you've experienced before - it's a gamechanger!!

In this podcast - I explain the three areas you need to have sorted to have a successful online business. What's a successful business? I'm glad you asked! In the academy we believe a successful business is where you are;

  • Working in a NICHE you love
  • Living a life-STYLE you have designed
  • Earning the Income you need to support your goals and ambitions

To achieve this- you need to focus on three areas - and i'm pretty sure - at least two of them you haven't considered before...

I'd love to know, which area I discussed in the podcast do you need the most help in? Send me an email to ed@nichestyleacademy.com

What happens when you teach something practical - like how to become a world class Motorcross rider and you want to create an online business.

It's pretty cool what we come up with...

You'll also learn about;

  • Remembering to think like a beginner
  • Markets with money - The power of now being able to do stuff your parents wouldn't let you do when you were a kid!
  • Simplifying your content process. Most people do WAAAAY To much.
  • The Cookie delivery system -What is it, Why you should do it and how it makes your life easier.

Episode 8 - Solutions Episode - A Challenger's $400,000 Dollar Journey

I can't tell you how much this episode tickles my fancy. Phil Woolgar was a small town paper editor in Canada and heard about the Challenge.

He grew his awesome idea into a $400,000 a year a business - His niche is beyond awesome.

He did it all through email to start and has only had a proper website for the last 5 months...

But not without it's challenges...

Facebook was a bust (Wait till you hear why it is!!)

The thing I LOVE about the episode is at the end we come up with a killer idea for his business.

BUT

What I think you'll find interesting is the way we worked up to coming with this idea.

Yet again it shows the power of having someone to bounce ideas off.

Our first brainstorming/solution episode. Choosing a market can be a scary proposition for someone starting out. Choosing a small segment of that market is even harder (even for experienced entrepreneurs)

In this episode we cover

  • Why is choosing a market so important (and it's not what you think!)
  • How do Artists, Authors and Makers use Market selection to build a tribe
  • A super Cool Instagram technique that took an account from 0 to 2000 followers in December alone
  • Do you offer a solution? If you're interest is helping people (Personal development, Health, Diet, Wellness). We show you a cool technique about using the first step of your solution to identify your first single target market.
  • The two exercises (which take 35 minutes total) which will get you your first market to use for your thirty day challenge - Starting from Scratch - this is what you need to do.
