Mike Says…

Here is what Mike says about the episode with Rory:

When it comes to starting a business from scratch that’s simple, inexpensive, and that can allow you to live life on your terms, there’s nothing more powerful than You, Inc.

What do I mean by You, Inc?

I’m referring to building a business and a brand that’s based on you…

As Jay-Z says it, “I’m not a businessman, I’m a Business, man!”

A You, Inc based business is extremely simple and it can be boiled down to three steps…

Build an audience.

Build a relationship with that audience.

And then offer products and services to that audience.

No employees, office space, overhead, or inventory required.

But how do you turn your name into a brand?

How do you break through the noise and actually build a following?

And what are some of the risks and pitfalls that come with a business that’s dependent upon you?

Well today you’re about to find out the answers to these questions and more with the help of Rory Vaden.
