Today I'm thrilled to speak with Mike G from Ninja Budgeter.

Mike's backstory is so dang intriguing, and what he has to say about commitment (and focus and perseverance) NEEDS to be heard by bloggers.

We also chat about...

  • MAKING a commitment for X years (or months)
  • The daily SLOG/GRIND is where the money and success is :)
  • Should you blog about blogging? Or “stick to your guns?"
  • How to get your first sponsorship - we talk A LOT about pitching people...
  • and more.

Seriously, I really like Mike. He's incredible honest (so is his writing) and transparent, and in general a delightful dude.

Enjoy!

Today I'm joined by Jessica Moorhouse, who has a really fun backstory in filmmaking and newspaper, and has since transitioned into being a full time "mediaprenuer" (meaning she does a blog, podcast, YouTube channel, etc.) She also has a wonderful, engaging personality (I'm actually not just saying that…I think that's an important thing to learn from when it comes to being an influencer of any type).

We chat about...

  • How do I, as a blogger, explain what I do to my friends?
  • The key elements for effective STORYTELLING (huge for us)
  • How on Earth do we price info products?
  • The Pro/Cons of being a female or minority blogger
  • Doing WHATEVER YOU WANT on your blog.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this little chat! Hit me up on Twitter if you do :)
