Ep. 65 We all need a cheerleader in our life!

Support can mean a lot of things and come from a lot of places. Today The Nice Guys talk about some of the kinds of support that you may not even realize that you need.

Tech talk- The hand-written thank you note is decidedly low-tech, but it's an amazing way to make you stand out from your competitors. How many hand written thank you notes have you gotten this year?  

Signature Advice- Don't discount the importance of having supportive people in your life and your business. Here are some ideas of supporters that you could be helpful, and some of them will not cost you more than a cup of coffee:

Ep. 59 The best way to learn BEFORE you make mistakes in business

Call to Action- Get on the map! To get pinned on our listener map answer our 2 question survey at, or tweet out to @DJDoug or @NiceGuyonBiz and say "Put me on the map!" with your location.

Tech Talk- Vimeo and YouTube are both for more than just cute cat videos, they are a great tool for showing off videos of your goods or services and getting the word out to your potential customers.

Signature Advice- Everything (almost) that you need to learn in business has been done before, so why waste your own time and money trying to figure it out on your own? This is the advantage of business advice books, and if you're not reading 1-2 a month, you should be. Here are some of our favorites:

Strick's Favorites:

Tim Ferris- The Four Hour Work Week

Jim Collins- Good to Great or Built to last

Doug's Favorites:

Ken Blanchard- One Minute Manager

Spenser Johnson- Who moved my cheese

Bob Berg/John Mahon- The Go Giver

Of course, both of us love:

Doug Sandler- Nice Guys Finish First
