#029: Joint Ventures: How To Do Them [Podcast]

Joint Ventures are a hot topic. There is a lot of talk in the Internet marketing community about how to “JV”.  This past weekend, I was a featured speaker at JV Alert Live conference In San Diego.  Talking with so many people about their concept of what a “joint venture” really is led me to create this weeks podcast. In this episode we will discuss:

  1. what a joint venture is
  2. how to create joint ventures
  3. pitfalls to avoid.

I also have a couple of great interviews that I gathered while I was at the conference.

We will hear from our Lifestyle Business correspondent, Stu McLaren.

Finally, for those who are a bit geeky, I will tell you about my new mobile podcasting rig.

This Week's Tip

For my recent trip to San Diego, I knew I wanted to do some recording for the podcast.

But I wanted to keep the audio quality high level, without taking my regular studio gear.

Therefore, I invested in a couple of microphones – specifically, the Audio-Technica ATR2100. These mics render superior sound, and they are very inexpensive.

Listen to the podcast for a sound comparison, and see if you can tell the difference between my $400 microphone (the Heil PR40), and the $48 Audio-Technica ATR2100.

I also took along a ZOOM digital recorder and a Behringer mixer.

Spiritual Foundations

Modern Christianity is indeed about signs and wonders… they see our signs, and it makes them wonder!

Nobody knows what we're for
only what we're against
when we judge the wounded
What if we put down our signs
crossed over the lines
and loved like You did
Casting Crowns, “Jesus Friend of Sinners”

Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. Romans 14:4

  • When I was going through Jay Abraham’s incredible “Joint Venture Mastery” teleseminar course that he did with Marc Goldman and I listened to the questions people had for Jay it was a real eye opener to the challenges people have with this subject.
    I’ve never been to a JV Alert event but I can see why an entire conference could be dedicated to this topic and it’s very cool Ray that you’re sharing your insights here on this subject. 
    What I also appreciate is your feedback on your Audio-Technica mic. I’m wondering how the heck I paid $150 for a pair of their DJ headphones and their high quality mic sells for $48 bucks! Hahaha I’ve been very happy with my headphones so with this experience and your endorsement, I definitely want to look into getting one of these mics for traveling on the road when dragging the big old Yeti is too big of a pain. Thank you for the heads up on the JV tips and your recording equipment!

    • You’re welcome Lewis. those mics are great. One of the best features is the dual outputs (you can use either XLR or USB!) @Lewis LaLanne aka Nerd #2

  • That one of best microphone…
