EPISODE SUMMARY: In Episode 107 of The Business Equation, I sit down with Luke Van Der Veer to talk about Rank & Rent SEO. What is it, how does it work, how can it help you generate leads for your business, and how can you tap into Luke's expertise on the subject and work with him directly? We also talk about how virtual assistants (VAs) can help your business thrive as well.ABOUT LUKE: Luke Van Der Veer received an MBA in Human Resources and, right out of grad school, landed a highly sought-after position at General Electric as a Benefits Analyst. Although his family and friends congratulated him on getting a job with such a prestigious company, he hated it. Only one week into working at GE, he was already searching for a way to escape the corporate 9-to-5 grind. He tried it all—affiliate marketing, network marketing, Facebook advertising and even selling products on eBay and Amazon. Although he got one of his side hustles up to $35K a month, he was still working seven days a week and reinvesting the money to grow his business. That’s when he came across a lead generation method called "Rank & Rent SEO" and spent thousands of dollars and months of his time refining the most effective system. By the six-month mark, he had entirely replaced his full-time income, finally quit his job at GE and has never looked back. One of his students, a concrete contractor, earns more than $20K a month from a single lead generation website.Learn more about Luke and the Rank & Rent SEO approach at websiterentalcoaching.comQuestions for Nick?

EPISODE SUMMARY: In Episode 106 of The Business Equation, I'm joined by Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginClear, for a great conversation about how Riggs and his company are using innovation and cutting-edge technology to execute their operations AND pay their investors. We also dig into Riggs' professional history and learn about how he arrived at OriginClear.ABOUT RIGGS: Riggs Eckelberry, a tech pioneer at the intersection of water & crypto. He is the founder and CEO of the innovative water technology company, OriginClear, which is delivering water solutions for industrial customers worldwide. OriginClear has developed and licensed an invention that treats industrial and agricultural waste water with very little energy, and no chemicals. And now, industrial users can treat their water right where they use it, using prepackaged “point of use” water treatment systems that have an amazing life cycle of up to 100 years or more. Washington is frantically allocating billions upon billions to water infrastructure funding. But, says Riggs Eckelberry, fast-growing inflation will kill all these massive programs. Sure, they’ll add the cost overruns. But you can't keep up with a runaway train. Riggs has the solution: direct, local, decentralized action. His prefab, modular water systems can be delivered directly to industry with no money upfront, just pay by the gallon, on long- term contracts that are indexed for inflation.Here’s the twist: Riggs intends to pay investors their continuing profit shares in Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Given the 50-year plus lifecycles of these systems, he expects a huge premium on these NFTs, and they will be tradeable. Riggs predicts this could scale up into the first global water marketplace, potentially supporting subsidized projects in poverty-stricken areas. Is this science fiction? Ask Riggs and find out. Riggs was once a happy tech executive. In 2005, he helped take a security software company public as its president. Then, he pitched a fund and─long story short─Riggs ended up as CEO of a small public company working to disrupt industrial water, a huge, but slow-moving trillion- dollar global market. Riggs is uniquely qualified to disrupt this industry, having learned management in the nonprofit space, captained oceangoing ships, and achieved several tech exits during the dot-com boom.Connect with Riggs and learn more about OriginClear at originclear.comQuestions for Nick?

EPISODE SUMMARY: Taking the steps to sell your business is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make in your life. There is much to consider and many bases to cover...and it requires getting into a mindset that you are ready to turn the enterprise you've spent years building over to someone else. Without question, you should never start a business without an exit strategy in mind. But everything has to line up fiscally AND emotionally to pull that trigger and walk away successful.On Episode 101 of The Business Equation Podcast, I am joined by Robert Clinkenbeard, the CEO of The Radix Group, LLC.

EPISODE SUMMARY: There are a lot of things in your life that you can control...and a lot of things you cannot. Regardless of how hard you try, things are going to happen that impact you in a negative way. Knowing this is inevitable, it's important to understand that having resiliency and learning from those negative experiences will make you stronger as you continue to forge ahead in your endeavors.One thing that is in your control is your ability to master your craft. Your ability to get better at what you do each and every day. If you're willing to put in the work, you have a much larger chance of being the best at what you do. It takes daily effort. It takes positive mindset. It takes a commitment to improvement and never getting complacent in your practices.Episode 99 of The Business Equation Podcast exemplifies this philosophy.

EPISODE SUMMARY: Think about the last time you had a great customer experience. Everything clicked. The service was spot on, the staff was friendly, and the ambiance was exactly what you expected when you first decided to patronize that business. That type of experience is something that will bring you back time and time again PLUS, you'll be more apt to tell others about how well things went. It's a great feeling.Now, think about the last time you had a terrible customer experience. Definitely not as good of a feeling, right? For whatever reason, the mark was just missed and you were left with a bad taste in your mouth, questioning whether you'd ever do business with that company again.The quality of customer experience is something all companies should be focusing on in 2021 and beyond with all their might. Likewise, the power of effective marketing practices cannot be overlooked in a world that's filled with numerous options all battling for a consumer's attention.In Episode 97 of The Business Equation Podcast, I am pleased to welcome Dr. Charles Livingston onto the mic for a candid discussion about effective marketing techniques, creating the ultimate customer experience, building a brand from nothing to seven figures, and much more.As you'll learn when you dig into today's episode, Dr. Livingston started out as a chiropractor and, after discovering a friend of his started making seven figures a year in the same time it took him to complete chiropractic school, decided to pivot and immerse himself in digital marketing.

His current company, Lifeboost Coffee, is approaching its second appearance on the Inc 500 List.Dr. Livingston is an avid student and focuses on his self-education every day. When he doesn't understand something, he seeks further knowledge...even going as far as to hire a coach to help him progress, like he did when he wanted to get involved with cryptocurrency.

EPISODE SUMMARY: You can never underestimate the impact good communication can have in business (and in life as a whole). Efficient communication typically means an organization is hitting on all cylinders, cranking out positive results and keeping employees happy and engaged. Poor communication typically means productivity is on a decline, results are falling short of targets, and employee morale continues to dip.On Episode 96 of The Business Equation Podcast, I'm joined by Karl Maier, the Founder of Abunden. Karl walks us through some of his early successes, as well as early failures, all leading to this current venture that helps companies improve employee engagement, thus leading to better results and practical growth.ABOUT KARL: Karl Maier has been successfully helping business owners transform from a limiting single manager mode to a scalable management team mode so they can continue to grow their companies.In his various roles over the past 25 years, he has led 6 established companies to double sales in 2 years including one that continued to grow sales by a factor of 7X in 4 years.  Leveraging his successes, Karl developed the Abunden Framework© and led the development of the practical management tools in the Abunden Tools App that helps companies build an engaged team to grow their business.Karl has been the chairperson for the Rice (University) Business Network and the Houston District Export Council as well as a board member for TiE Houston.You can learn more about Abunden at abunden.com.Questions for Nick?

EPISODE SUMMARY: If 2020 taught us anything, it was how to deal with adversity. How to navigate through unknown situations. How to adjust and pivot when necessary.In business, the unexpected can happen at any point, throwing operations and procedures into complete disarray and forcing business owners to adapt to the situation...or see the enterprise they worked so hard to build perish before their very eyes.The unexpected happened to Aaron Stokes several years ago. Running a thriving auto repair business, he discovered he was the victim of a well-orchestrated theft...one that, to this day, is still the largest on record in the state of Tennessee.Aaron saw relationships begin to crumble, debt begin to pile up, and hope seemingly slip through his fingers as each day went on. Fortunately, Aaron is a fighter and wasn't about to let years of hard work and dedication fade away without a battle. With a solid support system pushing him forward, he ignored the inner voice that told him to give up and fought to bring things back together again.On Episode 95 of The Business Equation Podcast, Aaron Stokes, Founder of Shop Fix Academy, joins me to tell his story and inspire you when you may be at a point where you need it most. Not only will Aaron tell you about his story of overcoming theft and debt, he'll share how he kept his businesses operational through the COVID-19 pandemic and give you encouragement to keep a positive mindset when even the darkest storm clouds roll in.This is a phenomenal conversation you don't want to miss.

EPISODE SUMMARY: Positively visualizing your goals, your desires, and where you want to be in life is the first critical step in the process. It's been talked about time and time again on this podcast with every guest who has picked up a mic because the most successful entrepreneurs understand nothing will happen until their mindset is fully aligned with their goals and visions.In Episode 94 of The Business Equation Podcast, I'm bringing you a special message in solo format about the power of positive visualization. It took me many years of hard work, consistent effort, and, above all else, visualizing what I wanted and keeping the mindset it would take to get me there in tact. From reading books to practicing strategies found within 'The Secret' and 'Think and Grow Rich' to imagining my work uniform for other companies was actually my own, my road to success certainly wasn't paved overnight. But what you'll find in today's show is how I put positive visualization to work in my world and how it continues to drive the accomplishments I achieve, both personally and professionally.

EPISODE SUMMARY: Most entrepreneurs start with nothing and build their business from the ground up. In the age of social media, you may not see all that behind-the-scenes struggle, but  every successful brand, company, and professional you encounter had to develop a mindset that helped them push through the difficult times, get lean when it was necessary, and sacrifice whatever it took to reach the pinnacle of success.In Episode 92 of The Business Equation Podcast, I'm joined by serial entrepreneur Shawn Khorrami to dig deeper into what it takes to build a mindset that will carry you from zero to your definition of success. Among many critical philosophies that he reveals on today's show, Shawn shares his background of starting his life in Iran and migrating to America before he was a teenager, as well as how his father taught him at a young age that "what's yours is yours." This instilled the belief that everything you want out of life is worth fighting for, and as he's built several successful businesses over the years, he hasn't looked back.MORE ABOUT SHAWN: Shawn is a serial entrepreneur, having started and managed more than a dozen businesses, up to $100 million in revenue, involving products and services across a wide range of verticals. In the process, he has managed thousands of employees servicing tens of thousands of customers, large and small, from consumers to small to medium-sized businesses and even governmental entities.He has formal education and extensive hands-on experience in business operations, strategies and planning, marketing, sales, finance, legal, and human resources.

And while there may be light at the end of the tunnel to be seen, there are still ongoing issues we need to tackle.In the case of many businesses, the biggest issue is finding employees. During this last year, many people have chosen new paths and different career options. Some have started their own enterprises.

EPISODE SUMMARY: When you're hiring talent for your business, you're faced with two options: hire based specifically on the talent of that individual or hire based on how that individual will fit your company culture and values. It may seem logical to hire based on talent alone, but if a new team member does not align with your core values and the culture you've worked so hard to build, the potential for friction and issues throughout your organization immediately becomes more prevalent.If you hire someone because their values align with yours, the probability of them staying with you long-term AND helping your business grow is much higher. You can train them on specific tasks you want them to excel in and give them space to grow into their position, but it's harder to do that when someone marches to the beat of their own drum.In Episode 88 of The Business Equation Podcast, I'm joined by none other than David Finberg, the founder of Peaks Digital Marketing and a successful entrepreneur who transitioned from life as a car mechanic to that of company owner and marketing expert. David built Peaks Digital by hiring the right people for his organization and has proven that onboarding around culture and values can lead to positive results.In addition to David sharing how he built Peaks Digital, we also talk about the undeniable value Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, has in today's marketplace, some basic strategies and approaches you can implement to leverage the power of SEO, the mindset you need to transition from the traditional career path to business ownership, and much more.MORE ABOUT DAVID: David Finberg has been building websites since the age of 9 and decided to go all-in on the digital marketing industry in 2015 when he founded Peaks Digital Marketing.
