It’s easy to succumb to shiny object syndrome, especially when that trendy new thing promises to triple your revenue stream. In this recap episode, we share our top takeaways from our conversation with Dan Miller, whose mega-successful business model is based on consistency and not chasing quick cash injections. Host AJ shares our first highlight about creating products and content around the problems that your audience approaches you with. Reflecting on a key theme, we talk about how Dan resists the temptation to dive into every new thing and instead focus on building a consistent audience. We then discuss Dan’s business model and how his coaching formed the foundation for his content. Following this, we unpack why Dan doesn’t expect to make income from his books and how he sees his books as pillar content that he builds ancillary income streams around. While many of us feel the pressure to be successful and end up living to work, we round up our conversation by chatting about how Dan works to live. Tune for more as we recap Dan’s many insights.
