Today’s guest Dr. Jonathan Brown of CitySkin has been not only listening to this show for the past 3-years, but he’s also been implementing the ideas that caught his attention. The result? He’s built a business he loves, going from 156 clients a year to over 3,000. He’s made marketing a hobby.
Have you ever thought to yourself… “Should I sell my business?” Do you have a dream and a bag full of excuses not to chase it? Mortgage, bills to pay? Well this week’s guest had a dream and the reality of a bricks and mortar business and he and his family decided to chase the dream anyway. Since then they’ve created a business they love and are living the dream.
Speed skater Steven Bradbury created history in Salt Lake City when he became the first Australian to win a Winter Olympic Gold Medal. Off the back of that, Steve has created a fantastic small business.
His remarkable and unlikely victory was achieved after a spectacular final-lap spill took out his four rivals. Bradbury threw his arms up in disbelief and smiled as he crossed the finish line.

To make it easier (and more enjoyable for him) I agreed that we’d both sit down for an hour each day and write. Jack would write an essay, I’d write a blog post.
So the 14-day blog post challenge began. And, five posts in, it’s going beautifully.
Beyond spending quality (albeit silent) time with my now mature son (!), there’s been so much upside already to blogging regularly.

Joe Winston, a long time listener of my podcast, shares what stopped him from creating killer content until just recently. Here’s what he sent me: Hey Timbo! I’ve just been catching up on the podcasts as I’ve been overseas and I’ve loved them. Firstly, the Andrew Griffiths interview was awesome, he clearly LOVES small business …
I checked in to a hotel today in Perth … A city I am unfamiliar with. After a five hour flight my body was screaming “massage, massage!” So I Google ‘Mobile massage Perth’. And the fun begins … Not! The first two pages (yes, I was so desperate I went to page 2 of the …
In a recent episode we gave some advice to a listener who wanted to become less involved in the day-to-day running of her bakery, yet still earn a decent income. Yes, she wanted her cake and to eat it, too! (Please excuse the bakery pun, but Luke made me do it). Well, Miriam (the listener) …
