The Art of Online Business Podcast

Why You Might Be Looking At Your Business Wrong (and How to Fix It) with James Wedmore

My guest today is James Wedmore, who is returning to The Art of Paid Traffic as my guest for the fourth time, and this episode is guaranteed to ruffle a few feathers. James is going to be sharing his approach to business, and it’s definitely not conventional thinking when it comes to entrepreneurship.

James is now going into his 11th year of running an online business, and he hosts the popular Mind Your Business Podcast where he and his guests integrate a conversation of mindset and the mental, emotional and inner game of entrepreneurship – with a dose of spirituality mixed in.

His signature program is Business By Design, where they show anyone whose an online business owner how to step into the role of the “Digital CEO”, so they can grow, scale and experience rapid growth in their businesses.

Listeners of the podcast will know that James was my original coach back in January 2014, and he continues to be my mentor as I grow my business. With James’ continued mentorship, my own business has seen exponential growth. A lot of what we talk about today is stuff we’ve been discussing for a very long time, and we didn’t even come close to touching on all the topics we wanted to cover in this episode.

As James shares, something like 8 out of 10 businesses today are failing, but it doesn’t have to be this way if entrepreneurs would start treating their businesses like businesses. You’re going to hear that hard work and hustle is only going to get you so far, and nothing outside of you will change until you change first.
