E47 – Working out so it will all work out

“There’s no medication I can prescribe you that will help more with anxiety than exercise…that’s what a doctor with an MD said to me.” – Christie Chrinos

Working out is hard, we all know this!

Images of models and bodybuilders may be coming to your mind right now but the motivation to exercise doesn’t have to come from vanity.

Regular exercise (even just walking more) is great for your mental health, and to run your business to its highest potential, self-care is important.

Starting your side project, company, freelance career was stressful…but wasn’t it worth it? Today we’ll show you why exercise is just as rewarding, if not more so!

E45 – Obi-Wan on a different approach to eCommerce (Topher DeRosia, BigCommerce/HeroPress)


“There’s a lot of value in talking to someone who is an eCommerce professional who does not care what platform you’re using.” – Topher DeRosia

When selling online, many people get hung up on the platform (Shopify, Squarespace, WooCommerce) rather than making their decisions off of principle.

eCommerce is sales…sales is about people, communication, and serving each other in a way that benefits everyone, not just checking out digital shopping carts.

Topher DeRosia goes deep into sales philosophy and despite his title being “WordPress Developer Evangelist for BigCommerce” he tells us a few things to consider before selecting an eComm platform.
