Taking Time Off

  • Most creatives love and know the fun fluffy stuff of social media
  • Brands can go the wrong way really fast
  • Young entrepreneurs tend to be personally close with their brand and making it a struggle to nail the essence of their brand
  • Listen really closely to your customers
  • If you’ve got that killer instinct and that gut, data will help you but not save you

Closing Lines

  • At the end of the day, do what you think is right for your brand
  • The world is moving toward people doing what they want to do

Ep. 194 What Do Email, Ice Cream and Saying NO All Have in Common? Answers today!

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Sunny @bhamsunny

That's right it's Doug, Strickland and Sunny Lake today, what a trio on the Nice Guys (and girl) on Business Podcast

  • SUPERFAN status for the following peeps: Sean, Stephanie, Dan Rice, Mohammad, Stacey, Anna, Sunny, Joshua Johnson
    • Much Love!
    • Would you all like to be called “Superfans” or something else?

Are You Putting Too Much on Your Plate?

  • Just say “no”
    • You do not have to give a rambling answer as to why you can’t do a task
    • The diplomatic way is “no but let me find a way to help you get this done”
  • When you take on too much, you can actually end up making everyone unhappy
  • The issue is that someone is ignoring the fact that there is a problem that people are ignoring
  • You have a limited amount of resources, so there is a conscious decision being made of where your attention goes

Closing Lines

  • Doug does not have the solution
    • Find a system that works for you
  • Empower people to find solutions
