MBA1875 Q&A Wednesday: Who has been your biggest mentor in business?

We think of entrepreneurs as people who go their own way. But in truth, no one becomes successful entirely on their own.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one listener wants to know who taught, coached, and inspired Omar into the entrepreneur he is today. We all stand on the shoulders of our teachers, whether or not we’re formal students. In his business journey, Omar is no exception.

But he has to give credit to more than one person!

Today, Omar discusses a few people who had the biggest impact on his development, and shares how those relationships made such a huge difference. Plus, he offers a few tips on what to look for in a mentor for yourself, and how to find one.

MBA1874 Is Your Business Website Mobile First?

Most online traffic is on mobile.

That trend shows no signs of slowing down; Google even prioritizes mobile-friendliness when ranking for SEO. For many consumers, mobile devices are the primary, if not only devices they use. Whatever you’re doing online, it needs to fit and work as beautifully on an iPhone as on a desktop.

Today, we explore how.

We’ll talk about how to take a look at your site, and make sure your mobile game is as strong (or stronger) than your desktop game. In terms of looks, speed, and functionality, it’s time to put mobile first, if you haven’t already. 

Get the tips and tools you need to optimize your website. Click Play!

MBA1871 How To Know What Really Matters in Your Business

If you don’t focus on what matters most, what matters least will take up your time.

That’s one of the first — and one of the hardest — lessons entrepreneurs have to learn. We all have limited time, energy, and resources. We have to prioritize. Because the uncomfortable truth is that when everything is important, nothing is.

It’s easy to let non-priority tasks suck up your entire day. 

Today, we share a simple formula for figuring out what makes the “Must Do” list. It’s nothing more than answering two questions, but both require some serious (and honest) thought. Once you answer them fully, you’ll know how to schedule your days, weeks, months, and years efficiently.

Get a handle on your time, and get closer to your biggest goals. Click Play!

MBA1870 Q&A Wednesday: Why did you start a software company? Should I start one too?

Your “why” is everything.

If you don’t have a single, super-clear motivation for building your business, it gets very hard to stick with it. Entrepreneurship is a commitment that requires constant motivation.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’ve got a listener who understands that. They’re thinking about getting into the software game, but there’s one missing piece: the big “why.” The interest is there, the vision is there. But this listener is smart enough to recognize that that’s not enough.

Not enough when times are tough, anyway.

Today, Omar shares why we created our own SaaS business, WebinarNinja. Our choice to change course and focus on a software product wasn’t made casually. We felt a genuine call to fix a specific problem that we were uniquely positioned to deal with.

That call was undeniable, our “why” unmistakable. What’s yours? Tune in, and ask yourself the big question before you make your next big move. Click Play!
