Cory Morris – Morris Better Bookkeeping I've asked guests in the past "What do you wish you were better at?"  One of the responses that comes up again and again is "The books." Keeping and eye on the financials isn't something that every business owner gets excited about.  That's why it is important to find someone who gets REALLY excited about it, and can work as an ally for your business. Cory Morris, owner of Morris Better Bookkeeping, is one of those people.  I've known Cory for a few years now, and I am excited to get him on the podcast as a guest. We hit on a lot of topics that small business owners can use, no matter what stage of their business they are in.  We talked about the importance of budgeting, different tools that can be used to help along the way, and more! If you want to find out more about Cory, check out his website here! You can also find out more about YNAB (You Need A Budget) and Relay Bank.

The key steps to opening a successful cafe in 2023 with Padre Coffee founder Marinus Jansen | #632 Join Timbo's Membership and take control of your marketing
Have you ever thought “Stuff it! I’m going to open up a cafe. I love coffee, I love people and I’m looking for an easy lifestyle business?” Come on, who hasn’t at some point thought that or something similar? Well, let’s find out how easy that really is from a fellow who’s created and sold one of Australia’s leading bespoke coffee brands, and along the way successfully opened (from scratch) eight cafes. It’s a fully-caffeinated episode 632 of The (13 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast. 
A little more about Padre Coffee founder Marinus Jansen… Marinus Jansen loves the coffee life.
So much so that he escaped his corporate cubicle in 2006 to start The Appetite Food Store.
Discovering he had a knack for this hospitality thing, he fell in love with coffee roasting, and the cafe business in general, opening up seven more cafes over the next 12 years, the majority of them falling under the now famous Padre Coffee brand which he recently sold for an undisclosed large sum! (Good on him, I say!)
At the time of sale, Padre had three cafes and a roastery in Melbourne (Australia’s coffee capital), and a roastery and cafe in Noosa, Australia’s leading holiday destination.
He employed 65 staff, had 250 wholesale customers accounting for 40% of his $14 million annual revenue.
So pour yourself a long black, and sit back as Marinus takes us through the steps required to successfully open and run a cafe in 2023 and beyond. 
I started off by sharing with this coffee savant my preferred coffee order …

QFF An advocate for historically marginalized communities, especially women and women of color. Helping her clients step into political leadership through public speaking coaching and training and fighting the treacherous imposter syndrome. (Atima Omara) For this week’s QFF episode, Rob interviews Atima Omara, President and Founder of Omara Strategy Group. She’s based in Virginia in the USA. Atima is something you can call “a champion of the underdog.” Atima helps clients from underrepresented communities in American politics run for office and engage the public through training, voter engagement, and communications. In her work, she sometimes encounters imposter syndrome in her clients. Imposter syndrome is a feeling that Atima has experienced as well, in which a person doubts their skills and feels like a fake, even though there is evidence to the contrary. Imposter syndrome has victimized all sorts of people, even if they already have illustrious portfolios, including small- and medium-sized business owners. Atima fights the syndrome by getting technical about it and also helping her clients through coaching and training.  Atima further added that if you’re somebody who’s starting a business, you should not underestimate the people in your network and that you should develop your professional network by building it on Linkedin, or Instagram if you’re a photographer. After all, it is 70% more likely to close from a lead that’s warm because it’s a referral than if it was a cold prospect.  This Cast Covers:  Altruistic nature in advocacy. Advocating for historically marginalized communities. Overcoming the commonly widespread imposter syndrome. Being comfortable in selling your services. Investing in learning through means of coaching. Identifying your audience and where to find them. Elements needed to build confidence and self-esteem. Psyching yourself up. Benefits of having an accountability partner. The importance of training. Links:  Atima’s Linkedin Atima’s Company Website Atima’s Twitter Additional Resources: The Art of Public Speaking by Dale Carnegie      Quotes: “The other part of it is understanding the importance of selling and doing that in a way that's authentic to you.” — Atima Omara. “If you're somebody who's starting a business, invest in actually learning how to feel comfortable in selling your services.” — Atima Omara. “Make sure you know who your ideal client is, and then know where they are.” — Atima Omara. “Sometimes you do need to be reminded.” — Atima Omara. “Practicing things that you aren't great at, is critical to the job, and putting yourself in scenarios where you get to use that skill until you feel like it's very comfortable for you.” — Atima Omara.

Mastering the Art of the Hire Hiring. A critical piece to scale your business. But how do you know it's time to grow your team? What role do you hire for first…or next? How do you make sure you don't hire a jerk that will torpedo your business to the ground? (dramatic? maybe…but maybe not!) What are the pros and cons of hiring a full-time employee vs. a subcontractor? If you hire someone that's not working out, how do you let them go?Sandra Booker, the founder of Any Old Task, joins the show this week. She answers these questions and more to help you hire the right person for the right role at the right time. Having helped multiple entrepreneurs grow their businesses to multi-six figures and beyond, you're gonna want to write down all the insight she shares during this episode.For starters, so many business owners assume they need help in a certain area (I need someone to help with social media! I have no time!) but when they analyze where their time is actually going, are shocked. Rather than needing help with social media, they may discover that their personal life (Kids! Aging parents!) is what is monopolizing their time…and they need a personal assistant instead.Listen in and improve your hiring strategy with these proven tactics.Connect with Sandra on her website, Instagram, and YouTube.
How to Create a Visual Brand Maura Kelpy, founder of Veggies & Vodka and Maura K Creative, joins the show this week! Maura runs her own successful graphic design business (in addition to her wellness community under the Veggies & Vodka umbrella) and shares with us specific actions to take when crafting your own visual brand. You know, the look and feel of your business where customers can recognize you in an instant.Here's an excerpt:"So when I take on a branding project for a client, I often start with a  Google questionnaire. I ask a lot of questions about the person themselves if it's a personal brand or more about their company as a whole and their values. I do a deep dive into what they're trying to express through their logo first, and who their audiences are that we're trying to attract. Your visual brand really encompasses so much more than just a logo, right? It's also your colors, your typography, and even your imagery – how you use your photos, or how you take photos of yourself. You really want this whole consistent look between all of these elements, because it creates this reliable and solid experience for your customers as they start to know and understand what to expect from you. That way, when they see your brand everywhere they will start to recognize you, and that builds trust."Connect with Maura on her website for Maura K Creative or her wellness community, Veggies & Vodka.

Being the Employee Vs Manager Vs CEO In Your Business Do you feel bogged down in your business? You might be in your email inbox more often than you want to be. Or chasing people who still need to pay that invoice or scheduling people on your calendar all the time. Or perhaps you’re stuck on the technical side of things every day, messing around with the code on your website or trying to figure out what happened to that client email that seemed to vanish. Instead of being the CEO of your business, you, my friend, are stuck in employee or manager mode. So how do you shake off those shackles and embody the role you’re meant to? In this new series on the Promote Yourself to CEO podcast, you’ll learn the difference between the employee, manager, and CEO roles. And I’ll teach you how to start firing yourself from those first two modes so you can step into your role as CEO. On this episode of Promote Yourself to CEO: 2:13 – Why do women start their own business? Believe it or not, money isn’t at the top of the list of reasons. 9:30 – There’s so much glamorization around the entrepreneurship space for women. But you’ll see something different, if you take a peek under the hood. 11:19 – I discuss the role of the employee and how it’s different from being a manager or CEO. 13:58 – You can start off wearing so many hats as CEO of your business. Then as your company grows, you start bringing in team members in this order. 17:03 – You might find yourself becoming an accidental manager by adding team members. What’s the role of a manager? 21:06 – Most entrepreneurs spend their time in the employee or manager mode. How much time do you actually get to spend in CEO mode? 25:29 – Here’s how shifting into CEO mode gives you more freedom, flexibility, and control in your business. 30:10 – What does it truly mean to step into the role of CEO? I reveal what happens when you take a bigger picture view of your business. 36:02 – I talk about the importance of having a vision and values for you, your team, and your company.

How ChatGPT & Video Marketing Can Give Your Small Business a Competitive Edge with digital marketing expert Troy Dean | #630 Join Timbo's Membership and take control of your marketing
Do you have a colleague in your industry that you just love shooting the breeze with? Someone who gets you thinking differently, someone who has challenging opinions, someone who stays ahead of the game? For me, that's old friend and marketing Ninja, Troy Dean, the founder of Agency Mavericks. I sat down in Troy’s state-of-the-art content production factory (there’s no other way to describe it) for this deep dive into how ChatGPT & video marketing can give your small business a competitive edge. The only thing he doesn't beat me on? Gags. I’ve got lots more gags! It’s a bro-mantic episode 630 of The (13 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast.
A little more about Agency Maverick's Troy Dean…
Righto, it’s time to take a deep-dive into how the small business owner can make best use of video marketing and ChatGPT, with marketing Ninja Troy Dean who I’ve known for a few years now. We used to occupy the same co-working space in inner city Melbourne, and most recently we went on a failed tall ship adventure with a bunch of mates. It literally ended in a mutiny, but that’s a story for another time!
Troy is a marketer through and through, with his business Agency Mavericks specialising in helping digital creatives scale their businesses and spend more time doing what they love.
Now if you want to hear from someone who truly gets marketing, who speaks about it with absolute passion and commitment, and who’s a master at cutting through the crap and the lingo, and getting to the truth, then you’re gonna love Troy.
You know how much of a marketing nerd he is? In his office, Troy has built a state-of-the-art content production factory, to include a sound stage with a Hollywood-style lighting rig and a Today Show style set, a voice-over recording booth, mixing desk, plus he’s got every type of gadget available … and then some!
And that, my friend, is where this interview was recorded and filmed. So if you’d like to see what I’m talking about, the full video version (on Troy’s Today Show-esque set) can be found inside my small business owner Membership over at my Patreon. Enjoy!

A little more about Rounded co-founder Oliver Garside …
Oliver Garside is the co-founder and Chief Evangelist of Rounded, an online accounting software built specifically to help Aussie freelancers manage the financial side of their businesses better. Think Xero or QuickBooks without all the unnecessary bells and whistles.
He says he’s his customers’ biggest fan … a line that made me sit up and take notice.
Why? Because, whilst we all pay lip-service to the idea that our customers are everything, I’m not sure enough of us truly live it day-to-day in our own businesses.
To that end, Oliver’s built an industry leading customer success function which consistently achieves a 99% satisfaction rating. 
So, let’s find out what placing your precious customers front and centre actually looks like, how they can play an integral role in optimising your product or service offering, and how to nurture them so they stick around for a very long time.
Oliver, welcome. Where’d the idea for Rounded come from? And what problem were you solving?

570: Do You Have a Marketing Problem? Do you think you have a marketing problem? Before new clients join us in our group coaching program $ix Figures Lab, we ask them to evaluate and analyze their business across essential areas such as strategy, operations, team, and sub-areas like marketing. This gives us insight into what they believe the problem is and allows us to dig deeper to discover underlying issues.  The most common area new clients rank in as needing urgent help is their marketing. They report they aren’t doing enough marketing. They don't have a real plan. Or their current marketing plan isn’t working.  But, nine times out of ten, they don’t have a marketing problem.  In today’s episode, Elizabeth Cook, who is a coach in $ix Figures Lab, and I will talk about why marketing may not be the issue and what the real problem likely is.  You’ll learn why a marketing problem is a sign you want more control and stability in your business, the reason Marketers, Consultants and Financial Professionals don’t need an all-out marketing blitz, and what to do instead of wishing for a magic formula.    ?

227. Getting Past Financial Anxiety in Business with Mikelann Valterra Money is a big source of stress for many people, business owner or not. We have habits we learned in childhood because of how our families handled money, and many of those aren’t habits we’d want to pass along to our own children. And let’s not even talk about the dreaded “B” word. You know the one, “If I could only stick to my budget…”   Money can hold us back in business, and I don’t strictly mean the lack of it. If we’re not comfortable dealing with the emotions that come along with money, we’re going to struggle to find abundance in our life and business.   This week on the podcast, I’m talking to Mikelann Valterra, money coach for women who want to transform their relationship with money.
