Does Teamwork Make the Dream Work? (FS015)

Your business may just be another way to play with yourself. Harnessing some team-work tactics could be a huge multiplier for you.

I was alone in my business trying to make a thing on the side.

It was my effort, my reward, my isolation, my procrastination. It was all up to me.

Any success (or failures) were all mine. “What should I do next?” My question. My answer.

It was lonely. My friends thought I was weird. My parents worried about me. My wife kept giving me that look… that, “I love you, but…” look.

Fast forward 5 years, I’m in a team with Corbett and Caleb and I’ve never been more productive, more on fire, more in tune.

It was a huge shift for me, but the results speak for themselves.

Does teamwork make the dream work or is that just something high school basketball coaches say? How would playing with a team (instead of yourself) make your work better?

You may not need a full team or partnership to get the multipliers that come with teamwork. More on that in the episode. Enjoy!

The Lone Wolf Speech from The Hangover. I guess that’s why they call it “sin city.”

Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack — “hey baby, you really musta been somethin’ before electricity!”

Workflowing — Do Better — we mention Michael Schecter and the add-on to the Fizzle.co productivity course. This is his latest venture in helping folks like you and me do better.

Productive Flourishing — we also mention Charlie Gilkey. This is his killer site. Great guy.

Corbett & Chase’s Partnership — what a metaphor. Less of a metaphor, actually. Actually, not a metaphor at all. Just a couple dudes posing for a picture.

Markdown — Here’s where it all started for Markdown. Here’s an helpful video about markdown basics. Everything sounds better in an UK accent.

Unless I Hear Differently

This deserves to get called out on it’s own. If you haven’t yet watch this 2 minute video… it’ll change how you write emails forever.


New Song?

What do you think of the new song? I put it together the past few weeks (as a way to keep my mind working during a personal struggle). Here’s a version of it where you can hear it in all it’s glory. Bangarang!
