343. Sean McDonald: How to Create a Content-Based Marketing and Sales Strategy
Sean McDonald is the Content Programme Director at BoardPro, a Board Management Software & Board Portal. Prior to joining BoardPro, Sean founded Sales System, as well as MOBIT Messaging and Marketing Automation (which was acquired by Engage Media LLC in 2018). What I find most interesting about Sean's approach to marketing and sales is choosing to build a content-based business that does not rely on ads and direct sales alone. Sean organizes and hosts weekly webinars at BoardPro (https://www.boardpro.com/resource-centre/webinars) that invites engaging conversation with industry experts, providing strategies and tactics for people in the industry. The consistency and quality of these webinars really help BoardPro stand out from the crowd, and is also what connected us. We are going to unveil exactly how Sean goes about creating a content strategy that works! This conversation is not just for tech and software companies, but any business that wishes to learn how to get started in creating a content-based marketing and sales strategy.

339. Jeffrey Shaw: How to Live and Celebrate a Self-Employed Life
Jeffrey Shaw is often described as an authority and advocate for self-employed business owners, valued for his actionable and “in the trenches” approach to achieving business and life success. Why shouldn’t he be? How many people can say they’ve never worked for anyone else? Selling eggs door-to-door at 14 years old led to a lifetime of self-employment. In his twenties, he built a portrait photography business and became one of the most sought-after portrait photographers for affluent families in the U.S. for more than three decades. His portraits have been on the Oprah Show, CBS News, featured in People and O Magazine and hang at Harvard University. Today, Jeffrey is the author of LINGO and The Self-Employed Life, host of The Self-Employed Life podcast with nearly two-million downloads, and founder of the Self-Employed Business Institute. His TEDx Talk is featured on TED.com, he’s a LinkedIn Learning instructor, contributor to Entrepreneur Magazine and speaks at association events, entrepreneurial groups, and conferences.

333. Nir Eyal: How to Form Habits, Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life
I have subscribed to Nir's newsletters for the past decade. He's one of the few people I follow and learn from regularly (besides Seth Godin, for example). So thrilled that this conversation is finally happening.    Nir Eyal writes, consults, and teaches about the intersection of psychology, technology, and business. Nir previously taught as a Lecturer in Marketing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford.  Nir co-founded and sold two tech companies since 2003 and was dubbed by The M.I.T. Technology Review as, “The Prophet of Habit-Forming Technology.” Bloomberg Businessweek wrote, “Nir Eyal is the habits guy. Want to understand how to get app users to come back again and again? Then Eyal is your man.”   He is the author of two bestselling books, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life.  Indistractable received critical acclaim, winning the Outstanding Works of Literature Award as well as being named one of the Best Business and Leadership Books of the Year by Amazon and one of the Best Personal Development Books of the Year by Audible. The Globe and Mail called Indistractable, “the best business book of 2019.”  In addition to blogging at NirAndFar.com, Nir’s writing has been featured in The New York Times, The Harvard Business Review, Time Magazine, and Psychology Today.  Nir invests in habit-forming products that improve users’ lives. Some of his past investments include Eventbrite (NYSE:EB), Anchor.fm (acquired by Spotify), Kahoot! (KAHOOT-ME.OL), Canva, Homelight, Product Hunt, Marco Polo, Byte Foods, FocusMate, Dynamicare, Wise App, and Sunnyside.
