Over the last year, I tried different strategies for growing my online business – some worked, others didn't. In this episode, I basically dive into a review of my efforts in 2013.

Why? Because we're going into 2014 and I'm about to make some MAJOR changes.

Here's the fact – If you aren't changing, you aren't growing (click here to tweet that)

In the next podcast episode, I'm going to be making a huge announcement and talking about my plans for 2014. The purpose of this episode is to set you up for that one. So, go ahead and have a listen.


Some people just love being able to read along with interviews, or they might just prefer to skip the audio completely and just read through the transcript. Hey, if that’s what floats your boat, it is all good. Here’s the transcript just for you :)
