Today Josh Marsden & Ben Thompson discuss their interview with Damon Moschetto on episode 38.
One of the very first things that they review is the importance of continuing to learn. Damon is very aware of the times in his past professional career when his business stopped growing was exactly when he stopped keeping up with the advancement in his field. They relate this to Josh and how he continually learns the advancements in digital marketing.
They also put themselves in Damon's shoes when it comes to having a plan and having that plan removed from you. Damon was injured in college ball and couldn't continue his plans as a professional athlete. What do you do when you can no longer perform at a professional level and your scholarship is lost as well?
They explore the differences and challenges associated from moving from a physical location to the digital world. How does a coach correct your posture online? How does a coach motivate you when you're not in their office? The benefits of a digital world are fantastic for the consumer, and it is starting to show in customer perceptions and business attitudes.
Ben and Josh talk about how to deal with people who listen actively and people who interrupt and talk over others. They both give people their attention when they speak, but they deal with interruption differently. Ben can be passive-aggressive and Josh is actively-agressive.
Josh and Ben also have no idea what the names of coffee mean or how they are made. What is an americano? What is a cappuccino? What is an expresso? We have no idea, someone should let us know.
Speaking of coffee, would you work (or can you?) from a coffee shop? Josh can, and has, but Ben can't get his head around it.
Finally, Josh and Ben review the three value bombs that Damon left for all of us. Listen to the episode to find out their thoughts on what Damon had to say.
