What does every business need? An effective offer. If you have this, you’re on your way. If you don’t have an effective offer, you don’t have a business, because you won’t have customers or revenue. Effective offers are critical, but many entrepreneurs have a hard time developing them, and often they’re reluctant to deliver them. Listen to this episode to find out why this happens, and what the solution is. http://richandthin.com/56.
Negative Judgments are ill-considered opinions that are formed quickly, and held dearly. Why do they matter? Because they undermine wealth-creation in more ways than we can count. Today I discuss one way that negative judgments about others undermine your business, and one way that negative judgments about yourself undermine your body.

Also in this episode, I describe a moment when I was thinking of quitting on my dream, why I didn’t, and how my dreams are progressing this year.
In the last episode, we discussed how family guilt can undermine your business. In this episode, we discuss how it also can contribute to overeating and overdrinking, and thereby put excess weight on your body. Listen to this episode to learn a two-prong solution to the problem of family guilt and creating a happy family. It will help your family, your business AND your body.
Are you holding back in business because you feel guilty about your family? Too many entrepreneurs do this, and it’s completely unnecessary. You can have an amazing business and enjoy lots of time with your family. Listen to this episode to learn about three common thought patterns that create unnecessary guilt that hurts both your business and your family.
A rabbit trail is a path that doesn’t take you where you want to go. How many of those have you been down, in your efforts to lose weight? I’ve been on too many myself, and today I share an update of what I’m doing to make sure that my current weight-loss effort doesn’t turn into another rabbit trail, but actually gets me to goal weight for good this time!
Rabbit trails are diversions that take up a lot of time and energy but that don’t move your business forward. If you want to avoid them, you must decide on the one problem that your business will solve, and exactly the solution that will solve that problem, and carve away everything else. In this episode, I walk you through the process of doing this with a client’s business idea, so you can see how it works.
If you’ve been dreaming of having a certain kind of body for years, but it’s not happening, that’s a sign that you have conflicted thoughts about what it means to have the body of your dreams. This “I want it, but I don’t” ambivalence is an exact corollary to business ambivalence that we discussed in the business episode this week, that prevents entrepreneurs from having their dream businesses. Listen to this episode to learn how “I want it, but I don’t” is also preventing you from having your dream body.
Struggling or hesitant entrepreneurs commonly ask themselves, “Do I even want a business?” When we ask ourselves this question, we feel half-in and half-out. We start and stop. We think of quitting. Today we discuss why we ask ourselves this question, and we set the foundation for how we’re going to answer this question and solve this problem in upcoming episodes. Also, if you’re new to the podcast, START WITH THIS EPISODE. It will get you up to speed on the work we’re doing very quickly.
In the last episode, we talked about why adopting the “Everything You Want, Nothing You Don’t” philosophy as a world view and guiding principle for all decision-making is essential for growing your business and earning more money. In this episode, I discuss why it’s also essential for weight loss.
