Episode 324: Community & Accountability: Why Staying Social Fosters Success
Episode of
The Fizzle Show
Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.co/324 What are the ways that we entrepreneurs really want to be remembered? Why is it that we do the kind of work we do and reach out to the people around us? What is the ultimate role of our community and the connections we make? Here at Fizzle, we cannot stress the importance of community and communication enough. For us, it is the building block and the end goal of almost everything we do. We both do things in order to serve and create a community but we also are able to do those things because of the connections we make in the world. In this episode, we are contemplating the place of community and connection in our more general roadmap for entrepreneurs. We are talking about the effect that friends can have on our personal success and the subtle and transformational role of the people around us over time. We also talk about finding this tribe and swimming in your own lane as much as you need to. Becoming part of a community of people always requires some amount of vulnerability and exposure and sharing who you are is one of the main ways we are able to connect with others, this is what we believe in! For all this and more, join us here at Fizzle! Key Points From This Episode: Daily motivation, audience size and the calling of entrepreneurship.

Episode 323: A Clear Business Direction - Choosing a Topic & Defining Your Audience
Episode of
The Fizzle Show
Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.co/323 How do you hold onto the energy and excitement of the early stages of your business? How do you sustain this “freshness” over the long run? Maybe you're lost and feel stuck before you've even begun... Either way, you need direction! And this direction is made up of two very important things: We want you to find exactly what your business is talking about as soon as possible! Just as important is who you’re talking to. These two pillars, your message and your audience, are really at the heart of any business but are especially the guiding lights in the beginning. Without them you will almost definitely be lost at sea! In this episode we embark on part two of the roadmap series and we are delving into the nerves and excitement that accompany getting serious in following your entrepreneurial dreams. This combination of feelings, we find, is so common for a lot of us; as we see the possibilities they can also be daunting. This episode can help you move through these waters and not get stuck in paralysis! We also talk about using your own experience and questions to guide your work, the 80% confidence rule and finding the one person that your business is serving. So for all this and more, join us we do it all! Key Points From This Episode: The universality of figuring out what you are saying and who you are saying it to. [0:06:18.4] Nerves, excitement and possibility when you are just starting out. [0:09:01.2] Common hurdles and sticking points for choosing and moving forward. [0:11:34.6] Ideal avatars and other time traps standing in your way. [0:15:51.4] Why social media is misleading. [0:21:01.8] Simplifying the difficult task of selling to an audience. [0:25:25.3] Tilling your business soil and producing a great client base. [0:29:29.1] Staying flexible for iteration and growth over time. [0:36:28.6] The next best step and finding your sharing medium. [0:44:40.3] Growing your topic, product and your service ideas from your audience. [0:51:50.8] Taking the pressure off and channeling the energy of an Italian restaurant. [0:54:22.5] The Fizzle courses that can get you jumpstarted on your roadmap. [0:56:03.6] And much more!

Episode 322: How Discipline and Consistency Lead to Success with Vickie Velasquez (FS322)
Episode of
The Fizzle Show
Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.co/322 How do we stay consistent and disciplined in our business? Amidst all the different strategies and business hacks out there, what are some simple ways to build and keep the momentum? How can we do things today, so that the snowball of tomorrow helps itself down the hill? If we can harness the energy of consistency and discipline, everyday, the long term results are often beyond our wildest dreams! Staying on course on a daily basis can create a sense of self pride and purpose that is hard to find elsewhere. These practices can help clear a path to success and prevent us trudging blindly through the wilderness. In this episode we talk about how to steer clear of new gimmicky strategies for your business, creating and maintaining momentum and staying present and committed to your goals. We get into why starting with intention, in this regard, can go such a long way and why it is hardest in the beginning. Today on the show we are joined by Vickie Velasquez from the Vegetarian Zen Podcast and our very own Jen Rao! Our guests help Chase and Aiden unpack stories of discipline and consistency and how they have proved so important in each's journey. We also talk about how this discussion fits into the next series of shows we are doing, which will provide a refreshed roadmap for you and your work. *These concepts that we are talking about can be such trustworthy tools in your box of tricks and can ultimately make a world of difference! * For all that and all the usual Fizzle goodness, join us today!
