A Conversation with Brock Blake and Joseph Warren
Brock Blake is founder and CEO of Lendio, an online marketplace for small business loans. Lendio offers borrowers access to loan options from more lenders than any other marketplace in the industry. Blake is an Inc. 500 CEO, national keynote speaker, and Forbes columnist.
As an entrepreneur himself, Brock knows that small business owners need resources to scale their businesses. And if you’re an entrepreneur following the podcast, you know you can’t do it alone. You need a support network, partners, and funding.
A Conversation with Steve Gordon and Joseph Warren
Steve Gordon is a bestselling author, the founder of The Unstoppable CEO, and the host of The Unstoppable CEO Podcast. He has written over 400 articles on marketing for service businesses. Through his firm, he helps service business entrepreneurs create leveraged marketing systems so they can spend less time on business development, and more time on what matters most.
For this post, I want to focus on Steve’s practical advice for building killer referral systems. Sometimes I highlight business theory or life coaching advice, but Steve’s referral system is so genius that it can stand on its own.
A Conversation with Vick Tipnes and Joseph Warren
Vick Tipnes is Founder and CEO of Blackstone Medical Serves, which has become one of the largest providers of Home Sleep Testing services in the country. Blackstone recently made the coveted Inc 5000 list in 2016 and was ranked 1276 out of 500 companies in the country based on its 345% growth.
I’m pumped for Vick’s success. It’s a big reason I invited him onto my show. But as you know, Startup Nation, I always ask about the struggles and difficulties entrepreneurs face.
At one point in his Blackstone journey, Vic was out of money, a key investor backed out, his business partner backed out, and he couldn’t make payroll. That was his reality.
A Conversation with Judy Robinett and Joseph Warren
Startup Nation, I want to share a wisdom nugget from my podcast episode with Judy Robinett. Most of us agree that first impressions are important. So much of running a successful business is about showing up right for clients, investors, and employees. Showing up, aka the way others see you, is one of the main topics I cover in my spiritual coaching sessions
As a spiritual coach, I’ve helped dozens of business owners tear down and replace negative mindsets. Most of these perspectives come from childhood wounds. To some extent, every person has internalized messages from family and friends. We also listen to lies our culture tells us about ourselves. Sometimes the lies are so pervasive that we don’t realize we’re acting out of these negative spaces.
Time and time again, I’ve seen clients wrestle with three, distinct mindsets. These mindsets hold them back in their businesses and personal lives.
Religion and coaching. Both can be polarizing topics. Some people have great experiences with them. Others (for legitimate reasons) hate both.
In this article, I’ll try to address a few common questions people have about business, Christianity, and coaching. How to they relate? Can they coexist? Of course, if you get to the end and you still have questions, email me at joseph(at)josephwarren(dot)net
Can business and faith go together?
You’re an entrepreneur. Why would you ever need a spiritual life coach?
People like you are special. You’re driven, intelligent, and you don’t play by the 9-5 rules of corporate America. You’re what other people call an entrepreneur.
Because you’re someone out changing the world, I don’t need to remind you about your upcoming angel investor meeting. Or that payroll is due next week. Or that your new social media campaigns need to be fixed before your new product launch.
With so much busyness, why in the world would you spend precious hours of your week with a spiritual life coach?
