Episode #118: Build Your Business and Live Your Dream

Kimanzi Constable, co-author of Stop Chasing Influencers

Kimanzi ConstableIn the past 12 months since we last heard from Kimanzi Constable (Episode #069), he’s had some pretty amazing things happen.

He continues to write for ever more mainstream publications like The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, MindBodyGreen, Success and The Good Men Project. This, more than anything, has afforded him the opportunity to do more speaking and corporate training than ever. In fact, Kimanzi traveled over 100,000 miles last year, and expects to do even more this year as he visits Germany, Japan and many other places for the first time.

He calls it a lifestyle business. He loves to travel. Because of his hustle, he (and sometimes his wife) are able to travel together expense free, all while Kimanzi is getting paid a fee to boot. How awesome is that?

We talk about this and much more, including diving into his new book with Jared Easley called Stop Chasing Influencers: The True Path to Building a Business and Living Your Dream.

Episode #113: How to Crush Your Next Media Interview

Based on Three Decades of Experience

There was a time when a stage or platform was strictly borrowed by the one with the talent.

To sing for a living meant you needed a record deal. To write for a living meant you needed a publishing contract. In my case, to talk into a microphone for a living meant you first had to “run the board” at odd hours and for minimum wage until the program director decided you were ready for more responsibility.

Those fortunate enough to be given a platform kept it on the condition they continued to make the gatekeepers money and/or look good. In the words of Janet Jackson, it was very much a “What have you done for me lately?” kind of world.

In many ways this model is still in play of course. But, as more solo entrepreneurs, freelancers, bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, and other content creators continue to spring up from what are arguably the ashes of the industrial age, the ability of the average person to leverage these larger, more traditional, platforms has been strengthened.
