A little something different (and super cool for you this week).

This past Tuesday, Ryan Lee, Derek Halpern, myself and our amazing moderator Brandee Sweesy did the first ever The Rise To The Top LIVE episode.

We had a HUGE live attendance and now I have the recording for you…and it is freakin’ juicy.

In it, we go over all kinds of cool stuff (and take on questions from mediapreneurs just like you). Here are some of the highlights:

-We briefly talk about the Gmail tabs and how it might affect the emails you send your peeps
-Ryan discusses his EXACT email strategy (how/why he emails his list, etc…super interesting stuff)
-We go over what is better: To use a name like “” or “YourName” as your website
-Tips on finding your target market (narrowing it down like a champion)
-Derek discusses Social Triggers TV and why it has been extremely effective for growing his audience
-Derek gives his advice for doing online videos/creating awesome content and more.

…also I reveal a secret project I’ve been working on for you guys. And Brandee gets me to reveal even more than I wanted to 🙂

Watch/listen below (and let me know what you think of The Rise To The Top LIVE in the comments!)


I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

GoToMeetingSummer is in the air and you know what that means…going to a bunch of meetings all over the place sucks. A far better use of your time (and this is what I do), is to do your meetings on GoToMeeting with HD Faces (so you can see who you are talking to). Record ’em, save ’em, do whatever you want with ’em! I’ve got a special 45-day free trial just for RISE Nation right here.

“I was able to book interview guests like Pat Flynn, Greg Hickman, John Dumas and Caleb Wojcik. I’ve also been introduced to some major names in my niche (entrepreneurs in relationships) like Marc and Angel from marcandangel dot com and Michael Stelzner of Social Media Examiner. I’m aiming to make these intros into more guests for the show which I see being very possible now with the training I got and get regularly from CAI.” -Megan Pangan (BellsAndBounty)
