The Success Sessions: Jason Van Orden

I’m thrilled to announce the next instalment of The Success Sessions. During these extra special episodes of The Simply Smart Business Show, I’ll be inviting business rockstars (currently killing it in their own field) to come and talk to me about the true meaning of success.

This week, I’m excited to introduce consultant, coach and strategic planner, Jason Van Orden.

Takeaways from this show:

  • Connection is a fundamental need that human beings have, so as you look at your vision, think about the types of relationships you want to nurture.
  • Success can mean choosing who you interact with every day.
  • Show up in a way that leverages the best parts of you.
  • The different areas or life converge and sometimes bump or conflict, so keep that in mind when you make your plans.
  • Success is a degree of freedom. We all want a certain amount of autonomy in deciding how we live our life.
  • Your journey to success will always be an ongoing thing.
  • Sometimes the significant milestones happen gradually over time.
  • Keep an eye out for the clues that appear, and follow them.
  • Think of life and business as an organic journey – pivot, don’t push and force.
  • Experimentation is important, but you don’t have to be bold. Start with something less risky.
  • Some of the biggest leaps forward come when you step back, pause, and allow yourself some space.
  • Don’t just apply lessons to your own success journey, think about how you can facilitate the same for the people you serve.
  • Vision is useless if the gas tank’s empty.

Jason and I are running a one day mastermind in London on 10th November 2017 where we’re helping 15 online business owners design a bespoke business growth plan for 2018. If you’d like to join us, head on over here.

More on Jason here:

Jason is a consultant, coach, and strategic planner to established thought leaders. He helps them build an online business model around their knowledge and ideas so that they reach a larger audience and generate income without relying only on time-intensive income streams like speaking, writing, and consulting.

In his consulting, he draws from twelve years of researching top Internet influencers as well as personal experience gained through over 60 online course launches, 7000 students, and 8 million downloads of his podcast.

In 2005, he started the first podcast about internet business and marketing which quickly became one of the most profitable podcasts in iTunes. In 2006, he wrote one of the first books about podcasting and became a sought-after conference speaker and trainer for business podcasters.
