Today's episode is #100 (let's celebrate!)-- and I've got another hot topic I wanted to talk to you all about. This hot topic is focused on a big mistake I see a lot (especially in the first two years of business!) but I rarely talk about.Until now. It begins with deciding on which path you should take for your business: Horizontal OR Vertical? Which is best for your business right now? How do you know if you are on the right path? And which path did I choose from own my business (to see crazy good results)? You can see the answers to these questions and more in my latest podcast episode here. 100th Podcast Episode Giveaway Not only are we talking about such an important topic on today's episode, but I've also got something incredibly exciting to share with you!

Who Should Enter This Contest My offer of coaching is good for someone with an established business that wants to up-level, but it’s also good for someone that’s just starting out. As long as you’ve been in business for at least a year, you know what you want to offer, you’ve started to build out your foundation such as creating consistent content or you’ve got a blog or podcast, then you too are a good candidate for this contest. You don’t need to be well established in your business for me to choose you for this special opportunity. Now here are some pointers for creating your entry: In the video you make, I want you to not just tell me about yourself, but really show me what you're about. Get as creative and expressive as you feel comfortable. This isn't a "technology" contest--I'm not going to pick somebody just because theyused a lot of fancy video effects--but if video production is your jam, then go for it! Do whatever helps you express yourself the most.
