- Most of the people we meet who want to start a blog or podcast or business either have *no* idea how they're going to make money *or* they're too confident in some vague, doubtful scheme for revenue. This is fine. It's how I got started — vague, hopeful schemes. And, to be honest, it's where I expected most people to start because you learn so much along the way. But I've changed my mind. In the past year I've seen how valuable it can be to learn from someone else's path (even from afar). When you have a little clarity and vision about how you could get started making money your path is more directed, there's more clarity and focus. So we created an email series to help people move from "I want to be an entrepreneur" to "I have a real business idea." (You'll get that email series free when you signup here
.) A major part of that series became understanding 10 business archetypes, knowing how they work, what the differences are between them and who you can watch and learn from. In this episode of the podcast we share those 10 business archetypes with some colorful commentary. For many, forcing themselves to choose from this list (even though it is *not* comprehensive or mandatory) leads to clarity and some new ideas about how to grow into the next stage of their business. I hope you have a similar experience. Enjoy!
