Making Your Self-Employed Business Sustainably Successful

By John Jantsch

Marketing Podcast with Jeffrey Shaw

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Jeffrey Shaw. Jeffrey is an experienced speaker and small-business consultant. He helps self-employed and small-business owners gain control of their business in what otherwise seems like uncontrollable circumstances. He’s also the author of a book called: The Self-Employed Life: Business and Personal Development Strategies That Create Sustainable Success.

Key Takeaway:

To be self-employed means more than employing oneself. It’s a choice to challenge yourself to grow personally while building a business. As we develop ourselves, we raise the bar—we’re capable of even more success. What self-employed folks need is both business strategies and personal development to reach and maintain that success. In this episode, Jeffrey Shaw shares his holistic approach for sustainable, self-employed success.

Questions I Ask Jeffrey Shaw:

  • The term “self-employed” used to be looked upon differently — has the perception changed now?
  • What in your mind is self-employed, and what space are you trying to carve out?
  • What’s your approach to personal development?
  • Will you share some of your own experiences and maybe some of the folks you’ve worked with also?
  • When you’re working with small business owners and self-employed folks that you work with, where do you see people commonly kind of fall down?
  • What is the self-employed ecosystem you’ve mentioned?
  • What are some of the traits and habits that you can identify that really serve people trying to achieve balance and build this ecosystem?
  • What are some of your thoughts on self-employed individuals in terms of hiring them to do work for you?
  • Can you tell us more about the summit this year which is happening along with your book?
