#041: What’s Better Than New Customers? This… [Podcast]

If your business is struggling right now, or you need more cash flow, you might think it’s ridiculous for me to say there’s something better than new customers. But there is, and that’s what we’ll cover in this week’s interview with Jim Palmer.

Tip Of The Week

I have long been recommended to you a program called Evernote. Recently, a new version of this software has been released. They have succeeded in making a great thing even better. The main features of Evernote that I like:

  • Capture anything – save your ideas, things you like, things you hear, and things you see.
  • Access it anywhere -Evernote works with nearly every computer, phone and mobile device out there.
  • Find things fast. Search by keyword, tag or even printed and handwritten text inside images.

Lifestyle Business With Stu McLaren

Stu McLaren explains why he has been spying on people.

Spiritual Foundations

God’s plan for you and your business is not that you work so hard that you make yourself sick, destroy your mental health, and wreck your family. His kind of success is effortless, and he has already done the work when he died on the cross:

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
2 Peter 1:2–3

This doesn’t mean that you simply sit on the couch and wait for things to fall into your lap. It does mean that as you work, you can be relaxed and free from anxiety and fear. He has already provided every blessing you need in life. So how do you get those blessings? It’s simple: believe, and rest on the Lord’s promises.

You might pray something like this: “Lord, I rest in the work that you have done on my behalf, and I thank you that you are already making good things happen for me. So I will stop all my stressing, struggling, and attempts to control circumstances in order to get what I want. I’m simply receiving what you’ve already provided.”
