rsz_smart_business_revolution_podcast_artwork_redJonathan Milligan followed in his parent’s footsteps and became a teacher. However, after just three years, he knew he wanted something more. He left teaching to become an Executive Recruiter but soon tired of the “feast or famine” way of life that is so common when one lives entirely off commissions. Jonathan realized the blog he’s been working on in his spare time showed the potential to make some real money so he made the leap into full-time blogging and hasn’t looked back since.

  • How Jonathan Went from Teaching to Executive Recruiter
  • The Networking Insights Jonathan Gained as a Recruiter
  • Finding a Balance Between Building Relationships and Earning Commissions Quickly
  • Jonathan’s Transition into Blogging Full-Time
  • What Jonathan Found Difficult About Leaving a Service-Based Business Model Behind
  • Where Jonathan Learned All the Ways He Could Earn Money Online
  • How Jonathan Began Hosting Live Events

This episode is sponsored today by Rise25 Inner Circle… Rise25 is an exclusive, application-only accountability and group coaching program for professional services entrepreneurs running 6, 7 and 8 figure businesses who want to scale up, and shift from “one to one” client work to “one to many.”

Rise25 Inner Circle was founded by my business partner, Dr. Jeremy Weisz and myself… every few months, at 4-star luxury properties, we bring together like-minded entrepreneurs who come from client-serving backgrounds and they want to make the shift from chasing clients to having large groups of clients and buyers chasing them.

What makes these events different from any other events you’ve seen for entrepreneurs is we bring in our “Sherpas” – 8 and 9 figure entrepreneurs who are there the full time, in the retreat room providing feedback. Think of the Sharks from “Shark Tank” except they only give out advice rather than investment.

Then we back up those live in-person retreats with ongoing, regular accountability and group coaching – so you are guaranteed to turn inspiration into action.
