Well, the second season of the Unemployable podcast is in the can. It went out with a bang — the Henry Rollins finale went viral on Facebook, which is always nice.
I’m already thinking about season three, which is a good sign that I love doing the show. But I do have plenty of other stuff to get done this summer.
In the meantime, I took a look at the download stats to see what the most popular episodes of the season were. Some predictable, some surprises … but one way or another, these are the episodes you don’t want to miss — and maybe even take another listen.
Thanks for leaving a rating/review at iTunes, it really helps. And if you’re wondering why I ask for reviews without offering you an incentive (I’m usually very big on what’s in it for you), it’s because I can’t. I’ll tell you all about that very soon, but for now … please do me the favor? 🙂
Don’t use iTunes? Maybe give the Unemployable Facebook page a like instead?

The Upside of Fail
Success often results after several misfires. We make many mistakes along our personal and professional journeys. If we learn from our mistakes, life does make allowances. However, if we wallow in our mistakes, they can consume us.
Hack All of the Growth
When you’re a solo, you’re tempted to think you are the growth team. And that’s true at the beginning, but not when you’re going to whatever is your next level. This article is great and getting you to think a different way, and then be better able to work with other people as needed.
These days, content marketing is more dependent on great technology than ever. These extensions of the Chrome browser can help.
Your Three Amigos
The usual approach to product ideation, development, and marketing leads to spectacular failure. A better approach involves asking just three simple questions.
Time and Money
You work more than you should. More than you get paid for, anyway. Because you’re not tracking your time as well as you should. Am I right?
Self-service is the duct tape of customer service. It’s cheap, easy to use, and reliable. It also reduces the number of calls, emails, and chats your agents need to answer. However, it’s by no means the be-all and end-all of customer service.
Own More, Keep More
The number of bootstrapped SaaS startups is rising. This trend is not new (we’ve been at it for 5 years) but it’s accelerating. From a financial standpoint, what does that mean?
The Intern (Lawsuit)
More than 90 percent of employers had a formal internship program in January 2015, according to a National Association of Colleges and Employers survey. Nevertheless, the employer-intern relationship can be a tricky one from a legal standpoint.
