For anyone who is into direct sales or is interested in exploring this option, the episode we had with Chris Harder is a must-listen. We speak to him about the benefits of this business model, and he shares how he and his wife have maintained direct sales as part of the income stream through the years, despite the many other sources of income they have. Chris talks about the difference between a personal brand and a media brand and how this distinction will help you to understand what you want to achieve with your podcast for example. We all tend to think that having many followers on social media is the key to success, but as you’ll hear from Chris, you don’t need a million followers to make a million bucks—sometimes you just need a thousand of the right followers. He warns against comparing yourself with others on social media, pointing out the hard work that goes unseen, and reminds listeners that social media is only one of the many aspects of building a personal brand. We also discuss what he says about the rule of reciprocity, the dangers of the ego, and more.
