  1. Another great episode Meron, I appreciated the transparency John provided us. I took lots of notes! Left you an iTunes review, hope that helps your show become more noticed.


  2. Hey Meron , how are you ?

    Great episode . I so much agree on moving your butt and go to events, meet ups , masterminds ect .
    A nobody from the middle of nowhere ( that would be me ) had the chance to have lunch with Dan Andrews and drink beers with Chris Ducker . But , not only that . Both guys gave me their thoughts on my business . And there’s more ! I met a plethora of wonderful people like you and Julie .
    You can’t leave these events without having lot of ideas or being motivated or not have made good friends .
    These two trips were the best investment I made for quite a while .
    So , for everybody that is reading this , get off your computer and start meeting people !

    And until we meet again …
    Be healthy and smile !

    1. Hey Ilias! I’m still fighting my cold but will prevail 😉

      I agree. Going to events, mastermind groups and trade shows makes a world of a difference. Meeting people face to face is nothing like chatting on twitter or even Skype. And I found , just like you, that our ‘Heroes’ are very willing to reach out and help, give an advice or share an opinion.

      NMX alone secured me many interviews but more important – created many new true friendships. Friendships that are making a world of difference for me both in having support and a community of like minded friends, and in business advice, connections and relationships. There’s no way to put a price on that!!!

      I go away from each one of these meetups with invaluable friends that I could never have met and connect with otherwise. Each one of the trips I made in the last 12 months (Australia (Ed Dale mastermind), Los Angeles (ePub conf), Vegas (NMX) and UK (Chris Ducker’s mastermind)) proved to be crucial to my growing as a person and as a business owner. You are one of this invaluable people that I am very, very happy to have met!

      TL:DR; Go to events. It’s crucial to your business and is amazing fun.

  3. Very inspiring and clever. I am hopeful that my own mission to add value and pay it forword with the largest legal services content site will gain traction utilizing your podcaste framework.

    1. Thanks Gabriel! Both for the kind words and for commenting! Tell me more about you 🙂 Are you into podcasting?
