This is Season Four, Episode Eight. It's our final episode in our Summer series about underearning, and yet, it's the most important topic of all - getting the support you need to succeed. I bust the "self-made" myth bubble in this episode, because regardless of whether we start at the bottom or now, we all need people to help make our dreams come true. Support is critical. Whether that's your personal environment, or surrounding yourself with the right kind of people, help is a non-negotiable when you're building your Noble Empire.
If you need more structure to get the support you need, or more practice in asking for help, join us in A-Club. You'll get a lot out of our tight-knit community of folks. We're all in there, working toward owning our dreams, one step at a time.
If you’re listening to just the podcast, you’re only getting about a third of the deal. Catch the Creative Freedom web series or join me on Facebook on Fridays at 5:30pm Central time for a LIVE Q&A about the week's topic.

This is bonus episode 6 where we begin our conversation about the Business Hierarchy of Needs and the lowest level of the hierarchy: Sales.

This is bonus episode 3 in a series of lessons learned from 25 years as a creative entrepreneur. Your business is NOT the Field of Dreams. If you built it, ya gotta market it or people ain't coming - or BUYING! At the core, marketing is sharing your message with an interested audience. But what's that message? And where do you find an interested audience? That's what we're looking at in this episode! You'll also hear about some real-world marketing examples and my "SIMPLE" framework for marketing and launching your offers.
