Thanks to Brad Ferris and Blake Mankin for their audio comment and networking tip. Record one now.

Erik Fisher explains why he started his productivity podcast, Beyond the To-Do List.

He shares productivty tips he has learned from his guests on his show. Some of his favorites include: Chris BroganPaul Jun, and Donald Miller.

Erik was working data entry during the summer of 2005, when he discovered podcasts.

It took him two years before he started podcasting. He had a comedy show called We’re Both Right, which was featured among the the top 10 comedy podcasts by iTunes.

He later teamed up with Cliff Ravenscraft to create a show called Social Media Serenity.

In August 2012, Cliff decided to do less shows, and Erik decided it was time to start Beyond the To-Do List.

Check out Mitch Joel’s Six Pixels of Separation podcast. Read about how Mitch uses podcasting to build his network in Chapter 8 of my book, New Business Networking.

Erik did not expect so many fans so quickly when he launched his show. He started with a small audience he already had, but it grew quickly.

He explained how he was  very intentional, “I wanted to serve people”.

Check out Erik and Jim Wood’s book, Ready Aim Fire!: A Practical Guide To Setting And Achieving Goals NBN13 Weve Got To Start Somewhere with Erik Fisher.

Erik was thinking about writing an ebook. He connected with Jim Woods at PodCamp Nashville. They compared notes and decided to write the book together.

The goal of the book was to write a book about goals.

What changes can you make in your life later? What goals do you want to make later in life?

erikfisher nbnradio NBN13 Weve Got To Start Somewhere with Erik Fisher“We’ve got to start somewhere, and we’ve got to learn by experiencing the doing.

Erik paces himself networking at events and conferences. He is an introvert.

He has a must-see check list to connect with key people at events.

Always get the virtual ticket for a conference. This takes the pressure off of missing out.

Erik sat down with Mike Vardy and Michael Schechter who host the podcast, Mikes on Mics.

You have to be open to serendipity at conferences.

Connect with a person you want as a guest just for a minute to schedule it. Say hello.

You don’t have to soak in everything.

Recharge and take a break. Recharge yourself and your phone.

To prep for a conference. Create a “hit list” of people you want to meet.

Use your return flight as a time to send follow up messages.

Erik was talking to Mari Smith, who said she learned to use Twitter like Chris Hardwick. Do a little Twitter through-out your day as you’re waiting in line or during a five-minute break.

Erik mentioned the The Pomodoro Technique NBN13 Weve Got To Start Somewhere with Erik Fisher

Thanks to Nicholas Young for his audio comment.

Check out PodCamp Nashville.

Listen to these fine podcasters Clark BucknerErik Fisher, and Jeff Brown.

John Morgan says he is more picky about who he networks with. He explains that he figures out who he needs to know, makes a list, and focuses on building those relationships.

“I want to network with the people who can send me business. Who is already talking to my prospects? Who can promote my products and services.”

We talk about how John would create his personal brand if he had to start again.

Use social to figure out who you need to know.

We talk about Chris Brogan. Listen to our interview here.

John pays attention and makes notes of what’s important to the people he is interested in connecting with.

We do business with people we know, like and trust. That doesn’t happen until we’re genuine in how we build relationships.

John uses Evernote to keep track of who he is trying to build relationships with. However, you naturally remember common interests with like-minded people naturally.

“Patience is a key to networking.”

“As you share the things you value in life, you’re allowing people to connect to you.” It’s reverse networking.

“You’re opening the door in the conversation for people to come connect with you.”

We talk about corn and Korn.

John shares tips for overcoming self-doubt. We all go through it!

John Morgan NBN Radio“Set yourself up for success.”

“When you’re worried about what people are going to think about you, you’re not focused on your audience you’re focused on you.”

“When you have self-doubt, you’re too focused on you.”

“How dare you allow your self-doubt to keep yourself from helping someone.”

We speak about public speaking.

John shares his thoughts on the writing process.

How to find positive people in your life.

Check out the Altitude Alliance with John and Alli Worthington.

John shares the story of how he started public speaking. It’s a crazy story!

I spoke about the power of improv training in public speaking and meeting people.

John recommends going beyond TED talks, Seth Godin, and Gary Vaynerchuk, and watch comedians perform.

His favorite app is Evernote. He has learned how to use it best by speaking with other entrepreneurs who use it.

John recommends reading How To Sell Your Way Through Life by Napoleon Hill. You can get the audio book for free here.

John is working on a new book about achievement, getting over self-doubt and self-sabotage, which will be out by the end of Summer.

Karen Schulman DupuisKaren Schulman-Dupuis is a digital media expert, curator of dialogue, community engager and builder. She manages digital communications for MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.

Talking about technology, start-ups, social media, networking to grow your career, and a fantastic personal story.

NBN11 Show Notes

Listen to episode 10 in iTunes or Stitcher.

Please take a moment to leave me an audio comment. Record one now.

Thanks to Rob Blatt for his audio comment.

The MaRS Discovery District is an urban innovation, not-for-profit, center in downtown Toronto. They help companies launch and grow.

Karen found her job from networking online and offline. Don't miss listening to her story.

Karen began working in sales for a telecom.

She was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, which put her on her back for a couple of months. During this time she realized she was ready for a change.

She was spending a lot of time volunteering and engaging with a community that had nothing to do with her work. She was connecting with people who organize TED and Ignite events, and using social media.

It was time to focus her energy on getting paid to do the work she loves to do.

She found the job at MaRS via Twitter.

She worked with NetCom Canada years earlier. The former president Ron Close, eventually ended up being an entrepreneur-in-residence at MaRS. She asked for an introduction to the team.

Grow your network now before you need it!

She managed MaRS social profiles for two years. She now has a business development role.

“It’s all about the conversation of course.”

“We’re all about the people. If people aren’t connecting with us, there’s no value in what we are doing.”

Listen! Twitter really knocked it out of the park for Karen and her career.

Karen showed up at the events people were promoting.

“That handshake made all the difference!”

“Twitter is the warmest handshake there ever was.”

Small Business Community Network (Slideshare).

“It’s all about the conversation. If you talk more than you listen, you are missing many opportunities.”

We spoke about Mathew Ingram. Follow him on Twitter and check out his Instagram photos.

One difficulty on Twitter is the big wigs talk to other big wigs. It’s like a high school clique.

Karen took every professional development opportunity she could. Read more about that in her interview in the Globe and Mail.

We discuss how to affordably use professional development to improve our own lives.

Karen Schulman Dupuis“Spend your time wisely.”

You have to bring it back to your goals. What are your goals?

The Women’s Executive Network has helped her with mentorship.

Look at yourself as having a career. I am my career.

Do your homework.

What the F*** are your doing? Read this post by Karen.

Karen talks about dealing with a personal problem at a job she had. She explains how she dealt with it.

“You don’t ask, you don’t get.”

Don’t be apologetic about asking.

“My Father is from Brooklyn, my Mother is from Liverpool. Direct is my middle name.”

The most successful ways Karen has grown her network are handshakes and engaging online.

Karen recommends Tweetbot.

Her favorite book is Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse.

How Duct Tape Marketing came to be.

John shares the challenges small businesses face in online marketing.

John has been blogging since 2002/2003 at Duct Tape Marketing. It seemed like a simple way for him to create lots of content.

The 4 reasons you should create a blog:

1. It makes you easier to find.
2. It gives you a platform to demonstrate your expertise.
3. It makes you show up higher in search engines.
4. It gives you and your customers, prospects and partners content you can share.

Consistently producing valuable content has to be part of it. It doesn’t matter what you put it on or what you call it.

Ninety percent of the world needs a platform and a tool to make it easy to create and to produce content their prospects and clients want to find.

We talk about John’s new book, Duct Tape Selling: Think Like a Marketer-Sell Like a Superstar.

john jantschJohn calls social networks “out posts”. You need to view them as ways to drive people back to your blog or newsletter.

You have to always believe you are renting the space of social networks. Building a firm foundation is important.

We talk about time management and family.  Check out my interview with Mark Schaefer about this too.

If sales people want to survive, they are going to have to start learning how to use social media in a more effective way. They need to start to produce content that builds individual authority and expertise.

“Marketing is ruining social media.”

John’s current favorite app is Word Swag - Cool fonts, typography generator, creative quotes, and text over pic editor. I've been using it to create the quote graphics for the show.

"Behind every success business, there's an entrepreneur who's pretty sure she's screwing it up." IMAGE.

John recommends Spin Sucks: Communication and Reputation Management in the Digital Age (Que Biz-Tech) by Gini Dietrich.
