Here we go again!

Alright first, I'd like to apologize for falling off the face of the earth lately. Some might call me a podcastinator (get it?). The good news is that I've been so busy lately that I haven't had the time or energy for the podcast. Second, I'd like to announce the triumphant return of the Run My Business podcast! I recently quit my part-time job and am putting everything I have into the business. That includes, finally, new episodes.

Yes, that's right. I'm getting off of my butt and revin' up the engine on the old podcast setup.

I'm going on about 2 jobs a day now ranging from 1 to 2 billable hours. I realize this is pretty good for a 3 month old business. But why stop there? I say, strike while the iron is hot! So this is where all of you come in. The foundation of the business is in place, now were going to start adding features (like any good open source project).

So let me have it. I don't just want to hear what you think I should do. I want to hear what you would do if you were starting a business. I know there's a lot of creative minds out there, let's put them to use and change the way people look at business models!

Email me at feel free to attach a voice comment in mp3 format. Or just comment to this post.

Let's do this!

Sorry, no podcast today

Ok, so no podcast today. I'm waiting to hear back from a few people regarding radio advertisement. So, I will be doing the weekly podcast tomorrow.

I've also added an rss link to this blog on the right hand side of the page to help everyone keep up with the new posts. I've also updated the calendar.

Talk to you all tomorrow.

Very Late Night

Ok, just got back from my glamorous pizza delivery job. It's about 2 A.M. and I have a job tomorrow at 9:00 A.M. But, such is the life of an entrepreneur.

Sorry about the lack of posts lately, I've been very busy. I told everyone that I'd report on how the three jobs on Wednesday found out about me. So here goes.

Job #1 - Word Of Mouth
Job #2 - Newspaper Ad
Job #3 - Newspaper Ad

So maybe those ads are working. Of course between jobs 1 and 2 I got a call from one of the newspaper companies and told him the ad didn't show an adequate return for me. I might have to call him back.

As for advertising, I think I've decided to seriously look into radio. It's expensive, but I think the exposure would be much greater than anything I've done so far. I may also call the one newspaper I've been seeing returns from and re-run the ad there.

Oh, and sorry about the little sing-a-long in the fourth and most recent podcast. I forgot to edit out the entertaining my girlfriend part. My mom was sure to inform me of this error. Thanks mom.

TDavid also posted a review of my podcast on his site Thanks for the pointers about the business AND the podcast. I'm going to address some of said pointers on the next podcast.

So, keep those ideas rolling in. Now, I must sleep.

Go Sox!

I've got to keep this short. The Sox are about to win the world series during a lunar eclipse.....AWESOME!

Anyway, 2 of the 3 jobs I had today came from one of the local newspaper ads. The other came from word of mouth. I promise more tomorrow. After the Red Sox win the series!!

One more job scheduled

Ok, I have another job scheduled for Wednesday. It's going to be a busy day. With the second job I'm forced to funnel most of my jobs into one day. Well, the theory is, eventually I can drop the second job and it won't be such an issue.

Since I don't make a habit of asking where they found out about us over the phone. So on Wednesday I'll be able to report where these new jobs are coming from.

Now I think I might go buy the new Grand Theft Auto game (guilty pleasure)

Two jobs scheduled today

Ok, so today I scheduled two jobs for Wednesday. I'm not sure how they heard about me yet (I don't make it a habit to ask over the phone). But, I will find out from both on Wednesday and post it here.

I guess that's about it for this post. Talk to everyone tomorrow.
