27 Inspiring Quotes That Will Change How You Think About Problems

Some of my favorites:

Solving problems means listening.” – Richard Branson [My comment: Sometimes, that includes listening to yourself.]

“There’s no use talking about the problem unless you talk about the solution.” —Betty Williams.

“To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?” —Jim Rohn

Go solve a problem today.
And if you stretch yourself, you might just create one or two others, but what the heck. You’re now armed with these quotes to solve those, as well.

HubSpot chimes in with links to 27 marketing podcasts.

Should be interesting for you to:
— Track down new ones that speak to your specific needs.
— See which ones you already follow, kind of a pat on the back for being–literally–tuned in.

Some that piqued my interest:

My First Million

The Digital Marketing Podcast

The Market Your Genius Podcast

Again, here’s the link.

Happy Listening.

Side Hustle Spark #303: Free marketing library (Drayton Bird)

I have shared Drayton Bird resources in the past, but redirecting you back to his wealth of experience is worth my time (and yours).

The guy and his staff write great emails. The graphic above highlights a few of his subject lines.

A few of his email gems:

— “Remember, the currency of your business is customers – and act accordingly.
So the big marketing question is, “how much is your customer worth to you?”

— “Don’t Be Absurd. It Kills Your Brand.”

— “Having said all that, never take a bigger space than you need; and don’t imagine that a lot of elegant white space will sell for you. If it says nothing, it sells nothing.”

— “One good source of ideas is called getting on with it. There is such a temptation to look at that accusing blank screen or sheet of paper and go and do something else. But the mere act of writing gets you going.”

And here is that link to his free marketing library.

Keep writing and creating!
