Hey new friend! Not a Real Job covers tech, marketing, philosophy, feminism, and much more. Every week so often Chris & Joel—longtime friends and collaborators—talk, joke, and ponder in your ears about the topics that have them excited/scared/laughing hysterically.
We’re into Quarter 2 now, so it’s a good time to look back to Q1. What went well? What could be improved on? Chris and Joel go over the highs and lows of their respective businesses and what the hope to achieve going forward.
“The only people I talk to now are you, my wife, and clients. Maybe I should talk to more people.”
“New York is the third character of this podcast.”
No guest this week because we had to re-schedule some stuff, sorry! Instead, Chris and Joel talk about business positioning. Why is it important in marketing and yet why is it so undervalued? Joel also loses hope in his own words part way through but things work out.
PS, I will be posting a screenshot of the much-discussed Google Doc on Twitter, so check for it there. – Lindsay
“I lost my train of thought three words in there.”
Chris is sick again and Joel is busy setting blogging goals. The two sit down this week to talk about common WordPress mistakes made by small businesses. They also delve into general advice for website building and being honest with your needs.
“No good goal goes by without revision.”
“We tend to undervalue the time we spend doing things.”
“Be honest about the solution you need at that stage.”
