Quantum Leap Podcast Episode #8: “Plans for the Future of the Quantum Leap Podcast, Business Development Strategies Under COVID-19.” (Released 8.30.20)
In this broadcast, co-hosts Cory Nott and I discuss our goals and plans for the future of the Quantum Leap Podcast as well as key business development strategies under COVID-19.
Cory and I agree that the weekly podcast, now eight episodes in, is “going well” and we appreciate how the podcast provides a unique voice and perspective from small business owners who are “more like us” and not necessarily “wildly successful,” particularly during the COIVD-19 environment.
The podcast, inspired in part by Ivan Misner’s BNI podcast, intends to “flatten the communication strategy,” and communicate directly with small business owners and entrepreneurs to provide practical insights about how to survive and thrive during the COVID-19 economic environment.
Through interviews with our guests the podcast tells anecdotal stories of what is working and what is not working during COVID-19, and how small business owners have often had to “pivot” their businesses during the COVID environment to be successful.
For example, most business owners report that marketing strategies under COVID are “totally different.” Business development and business development strategies continue to be the “wheelhouse of the broadcast,” but it is interesting to hear both the successes and challenges and/or failures as well.
Cory discusses the synergy between the Quantum Leap Podcast and the Lift platform for entrepreneurs created by him and his wife Gail Nott. Link to Lift: https://takewing.mn.co/ (Note: Open enrollment plans to open up on Sept. 23rd)
Cory notes that a quantum leap can commonly only come from working with a business coach or coaches, and sometimes a small leap can seem like a quantum leap for someone who is stuck.
I discuss how a quantum leap for some might be a 30% increase in sales over 2 years or becoming a multi-millionaire for others.
“Remember it takes no more effort to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity than is required to accept misery and poverty,” states Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, which David cited as the “bible” of business development.
We discuss how there will be more Quantum Leap-branded blog content on how to grow your business during COVID-19.
Cory states that it “starts with vision,” noting that people who are commonly stuck don’t have a “big enough” or “compelling enough” vision. And such entrepreneurs commonly need to look at “going bigger” or “going deeper” in their vision, particularly now during COVID-19.
Cory discusses the important of BNI, referral marketing and the building of relationship during COVID-19—stating that “relationships are more important now than ever,” in the time of COVID-19.
