Discovering your one business vision with Mike Michalowicz / ep78
This week on the Digitally Overwhelmed podcast I got to interview author and popular keynote speaker, Mike Michalowicz. I had so much fun interviewing Mike because he has so much wisdom to share about running your small business finance (among other things).
Sometimes when it comes to “serious” topics like doing the finances in our business, it can be hard to find resources and frameworks that are motivating to follow. And all of Mike’s books do exactly that: the inspire you to take action, but also give you some clear rules to follow.
In this conversation we talk about bringing comedy to the business world, depression in the entrepreneur community, and how he uses A/B testing in his business to make decisions.
Mike Michalowicz is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal; is the former MSNBC business make-over expert; is a popular keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics; and is the author of Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur

In this episode, I go through a couple stories about why I think having more women in technology could change we perceive the world and some science to back it up.
Speaking in front of women is definitely something I love doing. And my good friend Laura Gmeinder does this in her own business: she is a public speaker who empowers women to uncover a career they love.
During this episode, I talk about looking at your marketing efforts in two different ways: slow vs. Fast. Separating them in this way can help put you mind at rest in seeing what each type of marketing is doing for your business and not get too focused on the short term results you need.

For those of you who are listening from Season 1, you will know that Alvaro and I used to do monthly episodes, talking about tech news. I decided to bring Alvaro on for a final episode this year going through the big tech news for 2018 and some 2019 tech predictions.
I cringe when I hear the horror stories of business owners who didn’t have a plan for migrating their sites.
