This week Jason is relegated to the subs bench, and instead John is joined by Rob Rowe, who works within the team here at Big Idea Media, looking after the marketing for our sports betting brands.

Rob's a really switched on marketeer, with a strong passion for writing copy, and putting big sales campaigns together. He's worked for the likes of Skybet, NetBet, and Agora Publishing, so we're very pleased to have him as part of the Big Idea family.

In this episode, John and Rob dissect a recent marketing campaign that was (in John's words) "the most successful campaign we've EVER run" - We'll give you a checklist of all the elements that you need to run a successful campaign in YOUR business, and give you real-world examples of exactly WHY this all came together so well.

Ah, "Multiple Streams of Income", the battle-cry of every MLM spammer since the early 2000's - but don't worry, we're not here to sell you a "lifestyle business" that will "change your life" by persuading you to sell stuff no-one wants to your friends and family, becoming a social pariah in the process.

Nope, we're here to show you how Multiple Streams of Income works in the REAL world - how we've applied it to our businesses, and our investments.

You'll hear how a profitable £300k a year businesses collapsed overnight because they DIDN'T have multiple income streams, and how this led to a BIG change in one of our businesses.

You'll also hear more words of wisdom from Warren Buffett, talking about eggs, rivers, baskets, feet and hawks. Plus Jason's got a cracking tool of the week which we use in our businesses to devastating effect.

In today's episode, you can find out the ONE THING that really catapulted our businesses to super-success. It's something so simple that you'd almost overlook it, and think "it can't be that simple can it?"

But that's the idea - it's a very simple thing, done well, on a daily basis, that will make all the difference over a long period of time. 

You'll find out why multi-tasking doesn't work, Jason manages to alienate the female population, and you'll find out why I blame Richard Branson.

We'll get our boats going faster with an Olympic gold medal winner, put a man on the moon, and win a US election - all in 33 minutes! The only thing you won't achieve is Inbox Zero - but as you'll learn in this episode, that's NOT what you want anyway - we're aiming for Productivity Central!

Just about every story of success that you come across will have been as a result of these 5 magic ingredients coming together in perfect harmony. As a result, we now structure our businesses (and indeed our daily lives) around them.

They are:

GOALS

DESIRE

KNOWLEDGE

ENVIRONMENT

ACTION

In this episode, we talk in-depth about each of the five ingredients and give you real examples of how they can help in your business and in your life. We've also covered GOALS (episode #5) and DESIRE (#2) in more depth in their own episodes, as well as touching on one element of ENVIRONMENT (be careful who you listen to) in Episode #1.

We have quite a few book recommendations in this episode - for links to everything we talk about, including the video recording of the episode and transcription of everything we talked about, head over to the show notes at bigidea.co.uk/podcast.
