Top 5 Tips for Building a Business (& Other Questions) (FS031)

Fizzle Show listeners are asking questions! We’ve received a ton and in this episode we go deep on a few of them answering questions like:

  • Moving domains: why you’d want to do it, how to do it without losing search engine placement, and what the most important part of the move should be.
  • Content ideas: how to come up with ideas for things to write and how to decide what bits go where if you have more than one publishing outpost (blog, ebook, podcast, video, etc).
  • Top 5 advice(s): what five pieces of advice we’d give to someone we care about (like a family member) who wanted to start an online business.
