About ten years ago, I heard the parable of “The Mexican Fisherman” for the first time.
Back then, I totally bought into the message of the story. The message, as I interpreted it, was that we should avoid building a big business as a means of building wealth. Instead, we should be satisfied doing the work that allows us to meet our needs and enjoy the simple/important things in life.
Lately, I've been thinking about how this parable presents a false dichotomy. In this episode, I share why I feel that hundreds of people's lives, including the lives of his wife and children, would benefit from him building the bigger boat and growing his business.
Let's Work Together:
I mentor coaches, consultants and thought leaders through the transition from an unfulfilling day job to a profitable online business so that you can live the life of your dreams and do the work you feel most called to do in the world.
Over the past decade, I have had the privilege and honor of working with folks like Michael Hyatt, Pat Flynn, Amy Porterfield, Ray Edwards, John Lee Dumas, Dan Miller and thousands of others on the successful launch of their audio podcasts. The most exciting part of my work, with many of these folks, has been helping them create and build a profitable online business around their podcasting efforts.

While I teach that it is possible to start your podcast with under $100 in recording equipment, a large number of my clients and students have told me that they simply want the exact gear that I use to record my own podcasts. That's why I created the Podcast Answer Man Equipment Package back in 2008. If you would like to see the gear that I'm using in my own studio, click here to check it out.
