In this episode of the Struggling Entrepreneur, we have an interview with Paul Colligan, a man of many talents. He is not only a co-author of an Industry book, The Business Podcasting Bible, but he is a successful online marketer, Internet Marketer, Affiliate Marketer, Podcaster, and instructor of various courses concerning new media, including the mentioned Podcast Secrets.
In this episode, we delve into the background of Paul Colligan himself–how he started in the business world, his experience in Corporate America “with the day job, the big building and the suit…” to his launch of his own enterprises in the web design and instructional professional development skills world, all the way to becoming an entrepreneur to follow his current passion–the world of new media.
During the episode, Paul gives his perspective of the decision-making anxiety of the corporate employee when the choice to become an entrepreneur has to be made. He reflects on the impact of the book by Michael E. Gerber titled The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It. In addition to his perspective of the lessons learned from his experiences, Paul also gives some recommendations for those either considering starting a small business or launching into entrepreneurship.
