What No One Ever Told Me About Running a Business & Being a New Dad

It takes a lot to get me nervous, but I’d by lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about publishing this episode. Today my friend Tiffany Lee Bymaster is flipping the script and turning the tables by interviewing me, and we go really deep with a lot of stuff in this one.

You may remember that Amy Porterfield was on the podcast to interview me and give listeners some background on my life back in Episode 200. If you’re a regular listener you know that my life has changed so much since that episode was recorded (including the fact that I’m now a Dad!), which is why I wanted to air this recent conversation with Tiffany.

It was several months ago when I reached out to Tiffany and asked her how I could be improving my social media, and she said she wanted to interview me for this show, and now we’re doing it!

In this episode you’ll hear me talk about fatherhood, my business evolution, the big realizations I’ve made about business and success since becoming an entrepreneur in 2012, and Tiffany even asks me a series of questions that my students wanted answered too.

She also asks me a “lightning round” of questions where I share my favorite food, business book, why I’m a “movie snob” when I go to the movies, some weird facts about me, and a whole lot more.

We end the episode on a serious note where I talk about the legacy I want to leave my daughter, and I share the message I’ll want her to hear when she grows up. Although we covered so much in this episode, there was still a lot that Tiffany and I didn’t touch, and she did such a great job interviewing me that I’m definitely going to have her back on the show to do this again.

Before we start the show, I’ve got something to ask. At this time we have over 500 5-Star ratings and reviews on Apple Podcasts, which is great, but I’ve set a goal to get 750 of them by the end of Q3, Sept 30th, 2019. If you’ve gotten value from this podcast, I’d really appreciate you subscribing and leaving an honest rating and review. Take a screenshot, share it on your Instagram Stories and tag me, @rickmulready. When we hit the 750 ratings and reviews, I’ll be raffling off a book bundle of my top 10 business and mindset books for one lucky winner. If you’ve already left a rating and review, just take a screenshot and tag me on Instagram, and you’ll be eligible to win as well!

Want to win a 30-minute strategy session with me? I’ll be drawing one winner at random each month, and all you have to do is give me your feedback on this podcast over at https://theartofonlinebusiness.com/messenger, telling me what you’d like to hear more of – including topics you’d like to see covered, guests, style and frequency of the show!
