How to do Good Work That Gets Popular: an Introduction (FS087)
Every one of us entrepreneurs wants our businesses to be more popular. We want more eyes on our website and more love for our products. And yet, we also want to do good work.
Businesses used to be able to make, package and sell crap and still be profitable.
Today, however, the relationship with the audience is far too important… you sell one piece of shit and betray the confidence of your audience and you might find yourself up the creek without a paddle.
When we’re bootstrapping and making our own articles, podcasts, ebooks, products, etc., it’s a constant struggle to balance good work with work that gets popular, and on this episode we share exactly how we walk that path. Enjoy!

Amy Schmittauer (DVG 012) — DIY Video Guy — “In this episode I chat with Amy about how she is able to produce three or more videos every week, which YouTubers she looks up to, what gear she recommends for the vlogging style of videos, and what keeps her from hitting record.”
A Bar Above – A Bar Above Mixology — “We are dedicated to teaching and simplifying cocktail and mixology techniques so everyone can learn to make great drinks.”
I’ve taken a lot of courses and been involved in several paid communities since I started my business, but I’ve never ever felt like anyone CARED as much about seeing my reach my goals as the Fizzle Team. They show up for me as much as I show up for myself. Thank you SO much, you guys!
