Intro 0:14
Welcome to the revolution, the Smart Business Revolution Podcast, where we ask today’s most successful entrepreneurs to share the tools and strategies they use to build relationships and connections to grow their revenue. Now, your host for the revolution, John Corcoran.

John Corcoran 0:40
All right. Welcome, everyone. John Corcoran here. I am the host of this show and you guys know my story, so I won’t go too deep into it. I’m a recovering political hack, spent years working in politics and in law. I discovered this medium of podcasting about 10 years ago, and I’ve been doing it ever since. And it’s one of the best benefits and gifts I’ve ever experienced in my life. You get to talk with so many amazing individuals. And I’m just reflecting back on the past year and some of the great people that I’ve talked to, one of whom is on the other end of the line. And we started this series in this past year of doing live episodes where we go deep on talking about a topic related to podcasting and content marketing. And that’s what we do at Rise25, where we help b2b businesses with the strategy and the production that they need to create a podcast that produces tremendous ROI and connects them with their ideal prospects and referral partners.

And before we get started with this episode, I want to give a big shout out to two people. Dan Rollins over at LiveWire Films. He’s a video strategist, really smart guy, and doing great things with video. So check him out. And then also Alexi Cashen of the Alexi Cashen Podcast and Elenteny Imports. Alexi started a podcast last year and we’ve been privileged to work with her on it. And we just recorded a big episode that’s coming up this Friday talking about all the amazing insights and ideas and relationships that have come from doing her podcast. So that’ll be released on Friday. I’m really excited for that episode with her. But today, we’re going to be talking about how to learn faster. How this is kind of one of those unexpected benefits of doing a podcast and Jeremy, you and I talked about podcasting as a Swiss Army knife. It’s like a tool that can do so many different things at once. There are so many benefits, business development, content, marketing, referral, marketing, up leveling your network strategic partnerships, there are so many different ways in which a podcast can benefit you and bring value to your life. Even if you build a tremendous Joe Rogan size audience, I would continue doing it because of all those benefits. And professional development is a huge one. I can say over the last 10 years, there have been individual conversations I can think of that wouldn’t have happened unless I was doing it for the podcast and insights that came from that, which resulted in massive changes and impact to my business. And I don’t know of any better way, frankly, to be able to talk to smart people, ask some questions and learn. So let’s dive into this topic Jeremy. So what do you think of when I say podcasting is professional development? It is constant learning.

Jeremy Weisz 3:18
Yeah, I think the best advice that I’ve ever been given was, find a mentor. And that can mean in health that can mean in wealth. That can mean in anything we can go more specific, which I know talking about finding a salesperson like specific advice, it could be an investment. So the best advice I’ve ever gotten is find someone who’s done what you want to do or is doing what you want to do. And we found no better way to do that. If there’s something in your life you mentioned, learn faster. leapfrog the learning curve by going to someone that you want to learn from and you could have them on your show and actually learn from that person. Like let’s say, you know what, I mean, there’s a book I read, one of one of my favorites, “Never Split the Difference” by Chris Voss and I read it. He’s an ex-hostage negotiator, FBI hostage negotiator. I got it. Not for business, but for parenting because kids if you have kids, it is I swear to God, it’s like a hostage. Like, you’re not going like I’m not putting my shirt. I’m not putting on my jacket. I’m not doing this. It’s like there’s a stand on nothing you can do about it. standoff, right? How many standoffs? Do you go through a day? With your four kids? Yeah, I mean, stop touching him. Don’t do that. But it’s like everything right? And so I listened to that book for parenting purposes. Okay, if he deals with terrorists, then maybe I can apply some of the same methodology, the same methods to negotiate with my kids, but
