You're here because you want to create a business that supports you. But there's a heavy tension you've probably experienced between a). doing something you care about, b). doing something you're good at, and c). doing something others find valuable.
This conversation is about finding the balance between those three points. Corbett, Caleb and myself have felt this tension, and that's why this conversation ends up being so good. We explore this tension and share some personal stories of discovery.

This is a GOOD one. There are metrics that matter A TON in your business. However, you might be making critical errors about which ones matter and which do not.
Sailors beware: there's serious danger here. Many businesses fail because the founder is busy tracking the siren's call of pointless metrics (instead of focusing on what matters).
In this episode we share how to avoid that error and take back control of your business (instead of simply reacting to whatever metric some social network throws at you).

We’ve heard from thousands of entrepreneurs — the most common struggle, across the board, is staying motivated.
We’re solo entrepreneurs. We burn out. We dry up. We melt down. We don't ship.
Every entrepreneur must learn how to balance their own energy, how to push through when they need to (and slow down when it’s right). That’s what we dig into in this episode.
Corbett has a unique (and time-tested) practice for preempting burnout. He shares this totem alongside plenty of commentary from Chase and Caleb. If you’ve ever struggled with motivation or distractions (you probably shouldn’t even be here if you haven’t) there’s loads to glean in this conversation.

Whether you're like Chase (who can't even look at a number without getting sick) or like Caleb (who literally interprets colors as numbers) you're going to need to understand the money picture of your business. What's making money? What's losing money? What expenses are the heaviest?
In this episode we discuss how to take control of your business finances based on Corbett and Caleb's hard-earned experience. uckily, Chase has a few puns and Game of Thrones reenactments (no spoilers) to keep it entertaining.
We also answer a couple listener questions about recurring billing tools and SEO douchebaggery. Be sure to visit http://fizzleShow.com/ for shownotes (and enter your email there so we can send you things... so. many. things).
