#512 This past week I [interviewed Joe Sanok](http://smartpassiveincome.com/session511) from Practice of the Practice, who is the author of a new book called [_Thursday is the New Friday_](http://thursdayisthenewfriday.com). My chat with Joe really got me thinking, "Who created the five-day week anyway, and why is it like that?" I think we've …
#511 Perhaps you've heard about the four-hour workweek. Well, a lot of us have come to realize that it's kind of hard to come by. Even Tim Ferriss, author of _The 4-Hour Work Week_ , has said that maybe wasn't the best title for his book. Because even with passive …

#509 Are you in this for the long game, or the quick buck? The problem with short-term thinking is that it's so vulnerable. When you go for the long game, you're building something that will last—and perhaps even outlast you. Thankfully, most of the entrepreneurs I speak to are thinking …
#508 Today we're following up on the episode we did in [507 with Jeff Walker, the creator of the PLF or Product Launch Formula](https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/session507).

#506 This week we spoke with [Anthony Sarandrea](https://www.instagram.com/anthonysarandrea/?hl=en), who gave us a lot of gold nuggets about generating leads online. But I know what some of you may be thinking: “I'm not even close to being able to do some of the things you talk about in that episode.” I …
#505 They often say that this world is very small, especially the world of online business. When I go to conferences (or at least when I did before COVID), I'd often get introduced to somebody, and we'll find that we've already connected before, or we have a second- or third-degree …
#504 That's right—follow-up Friday episodes are back! I wanted to talk about something that crossed my mind after this week's conversation with Ali Abdaal. And this is a result of “competition.” When you start to build a business and do competitive research, you come across people who are already doing …
#503 Has this ever happened to you? About a year and a half ago, I discovered a six-minute YouTube video about note-taking, by someone named Ali Abdaal. After I finished watching it, I thought, "Whoa, I really like this guy." So I watched the next video, which was about iPads. …

#501 Do you ever wonder what your life or career would be like if you'd made a different decision at a fork in the road? I definitely don't use my architecture degree anymore. But at the same time, I think about the skills I've learned and the things that happened …

#499 If you're a business owner, this might be one of the most important podcast episodes you listen to. That's because as an entrepreneur, whether you're just starting out or you have been doing this for a while, you're probably constantly coming up with ideas. Some of those ideas are …
#498 If you're running a business, you need an email list. But you _also_ need to send the right emails. _And_ you also need to make sure those emails are actually getting into your subscribers' inboxes. I often talk about the fact that email is the way to go. And …

#496 How do you position yourself as an expert? How do you talk about yourself online so that other people become interested, not just in following you, but potentially buying from you? How do you sell yourself in a way that's not sleazy? It starts by remembering that _you are …
