Niches Bring Stitches and An Interview with Jason Blumer?


This week Greg is joined by fellow accountant/comedian John Garrett. They talk about the recent movement towards a ROWE, why there aren’t good accountants anymore thanks to terrible managers, and why John is to blame for the America’s financial meltdown. They also interview Jason Blumer, discuss growth strategy (strategies?) and what you should do if someone offers you $100,000 dollars. Speaking of money, how do you know what to charge people? The guys get into their strategy for pricing and delivering value. If you have no soul and you’ll do anything for money, you probably shouldn’t check out Jason’s E-book, Growth Strategy For Creatives.
