Greetings and salutations, unemployable people. It's time to examine the resources that may well give you your next great idea.
This week on the show, we've got an episode that takes a unique approach to product creation. In another, we'll show you a strategy that builds a massive email list that sells that product.
Otherwise, it's time to humbly ask for something in return. The Unemployable podcast continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and one thing that helps immensely is exposure in iTunes.
So, can you do me a solid and review the show over in iTunes? It only takes a few minutes, I read every one, and no matter what you say I appreciate the feedback!
Thanks in advance, and on with the good stuff.

Turning Your Process Into a Product
When it comes to creating digital products, it's software, ebooks, and online courses that come to mind. But have you ever considered turning how you do what you do for clients into a product?
How to Use Interactive Challenges to Build Your Email List and Business
In a business sense, it’s fair to say that a combination of green smoothies and 30-day challenges to get other people to drink green smoothies changed Jadah Sellner's life. Listen in to hear how this simple approach led to a massive email list, a thriving business, and a vibrant personal brand.
Gary Vaynerchuk says there's no question that this day and age has provided us the tools to build something both quickly and cost-effectively. But, that doesn’t mean everybody should do it. Also, Gary's on the show next week.
I've spoken before on the power of audio. Not only is it portable and on demand, it allows you to get inside your prospect's head (literally) in ways that are difficult to achieve otherwise. Check out some of the findings here, and get your storytelling game on.
The Virtual Classroom
The best time to get into online education was 10 years ago. The second best time is right now.
Products That Pay
Building great products requires a mix of vision, customer feedback, and continuous iteration. I’ve found this to be true regardless of what your product is — software, professional services, physical goods, or anything else.
Often, organizations consider outsourcing in response to business transformations an unpleasant choice, but that doesn't have to be the case. The idea that other people are needed to handle responsibilities might be the best — or only — way to handle growth.
Service companies shy away from guarantees because of an innate fear of “being cheated.” Truth is, what you're doing is assuring the customer or client that they won't be cheated … and that's exceptional marketing that leads to much higher profits.
The Long Game
The challenges of success require no less careful thought than the challenges of adversity. As an independent business person, you want to be prepared to make the right moves when the momentum is carrying you forward.
If you're self-employed, you've probably discovered that there's a lot to do, including covering yourself on contract issues. You don't need a legal team to makes things easier, necessarily.
