The Method To The Madness

A long-time list member wrote in to ask for some clarification about the point of all these emails I send out.

This is totally understandable because I jump around between a lot of topics, and I very much appreciate the question (Thanks FM!)

Even though the central theme is crystal clear to me, I don't always do a great job connecting the dots between my daily musings and the core mission of this list for you.

Other ways that I sometimes articulate this central theme include:

Okay, so... where do all the individual topics come from?

There are three non-optional core competencies I see that support a service business owner who wants to stop trading time for money: 

  1. Pricing
  2. Positioning
  3. Publishing

Underneath each of these competencies, there are loads of smaller tactical topics. You'll probably recognize many of them if you've been around these parts for a while: 




So, yeah... lots of seemingly disparate topics that support the central theme of ditching hourly billing. 

Whether you're new to the list or have been reading for a while, I hope this message will help orient you to the Content Solar System that I'm dragging you around in ;-)



P.S. I wasn't planning on running another session of the 5-Day Podcast Challenge for a while, but recently I've had a number of organic inquiries about it. If you would like to launch your first podcast in a little as five days, reply to this message with YES and I'll add your name to the waiting list. As soon as there are enough people to make a solid group, I'll run another session.
