    Loved the details, but more importantly, so many things that mirror the path I’ve created. Now to arrive at the 6-figureness 😉 Thanks for a great interview and happy to help spread such a great sample that really does work.

    • David Siteman Garland

       My pleasure, Mike!

  • Fantastic episode, David! I bet it was Cliff who convinced you to upgrade to the Heil mic, huh? It’s what we use in our studios at the radio station, too. Great sound.

    My question- is it ever “too soon” to introduce a course/product once you launch your show/brand? In other words, do you have to already have an audience before you offer something other than consulting/coaching?

    • David Siteman Garland

       Oh yah for sure, love the Heil 🙂

      Always a tough question about “when is the right time.” There is no perfect answer in my opinion. I’d rather start sooner than later to test the waters a little bit. I would say if more than 10 people ask you the same question, you are onto something.

  • Greg: The Frozen Food Master

    Hustle. That IS the key. 
    A great interview with 2 guys I respect a lot!

    • David Siteman Garland

       Totally right on! Respect back at ya.

  • Peter Montgomery

    Totally relate to the whole not paying enough attention to the family thing when following your passion. Great to hear it’s not just me and a great reminder to why we want the lifestyle business in the first place… So we can hang out with our families:)  Gotta run and go hang out with my wife.

    Another kick arse episode Dave…

  • Loved how honest Cliff is about loving his job more than his family – I can totally relate! I find myself so distracted as a mum. I find myself playing with my two-year-old & dealing with my baby all the while wishing I could just jump on the computer to write a blog post or do some work! Right now they’re sleeping – yay 🙂 Thanks David & Cliff, enjoyed the interview heaps. Keep’in it real, as always.
