[03:26] – Share something we don’t know about your area of expertise that as Entrepreneurs, we probably should: Your audience listens to you because they’re inspired. If you give a ton of value, they will come back to you. You also have to be able to tell your story through a different lens, as different shows have different audiences.
[05:11] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: In 2014, Jeremy was working as a network marketer full-time. He wasn’t learning any new skills or saving money. He wasn’t coachable. At the time, he felt he was the expert. The reality was he was 5 figures in debt. He was in his office looking at a wall when he realized things needed to change, so he began asking for advice.

[08:36] – Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment: In 2015, Jeremy spent a month living in Peru. He thought about creating a podcast. Later that year, he took JLD’s Free Podcast Course. He went to an event last year called Amplify Live, which was about amplifying your message and figuring out how you can help the world. He wanted to help thought leaders create podcasts. He finally figured out how to monetize this and created a partnership with a friend. It’s worked out really well!
