Business Over Beer

The BOB Happy Hour #25 with James Henderson

May 8, 2020

On this episode of The BOB Happy Hour, we once again travel (virtually) down under for a visit with James Henderson of Aych Media in Australia. James shares with us how he is working to Elevate Universal Consciousness, how he built a Podcast Network starting with flagship Hospopreneurs Podcast, and how he turned a Facebook Event into a viral music festival.  We also get our second installment of Aussie Vocabulary Lessons below.  


In this episode:

  • If you want better answers, start by asking better questions; that starts with asking questions of yourself.   
  • When a viral opportunity presents itself, have the courage to take a risk; you might be amazed at what you can learn and at the success you can find as a result. 
  • What you do is not a defining characteristic, rather, who you are and why you do what you do are paramount.
  • To survive and thrive during this time of uncertainty, you must lose the ego, push passed pride, and have the humility to question your own ideas. 


What We're Drinking:

Trusty Brewing - Vancouver, WA
