In this podcast, I interview my good friend Neil Patel about his approach to goal setting. You may not know Neil, especially because he doesn’t appear on many podcasts, but he’s a true expert in the field of entrepreneurship and business. He’s a real marketing “guru” and the most successful of my close friends in business (and other aspects of life).

Beyond his ad agency and SEO expertise, Neil is a New York Times Bestselling author, and he’s been called a top influencer by The Wall Street Journal, as well as a top 10 marketer by Forbes. He was even recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.

The bottom line is Neil knows how to get results and help businesses grow, so he’s the ideal person to discuss the right ways to set big, yet achievable, goals.

In our chat, we discuss . . .

  • How to set big goals while staying realistic
  • How to stay on track with long-term goals
  • Staying motivated through passion and strategic rewards
  • How to learn from mistakes and when to give up on a goal
  • How to increase self-confidence
  • And a lot more . . .

So, if you’re at all interested in entrepreneurship, becoming good at marketing, or building a business, and you want to learn how to properly set goals and achieve success, listen to this podcast!
