Listen to the Latest Interview (00:47:02)

Zero to $100k in 12 months sounds pretty crazy.  I have to admit there was some scepticism when I first learned about Kavit and his company through a referral from a fellow podcaster Fabienne Raphael ( EP44 ) that I should have him on the show.  Well Kavit quickly dispatched that doubt by breaking down the process he used to help people achieve that level of success.  I asked Kavit to talk about on of his case studies and whilst he was speaking about one of her I looked her up and found her brand online.  It’s called Trapped to Transformed and you can jump ahead and listen about the case study here => [30:10]

Kavit helped this struggling Mom go from zero to $100k in 12 months and it was obvious she was doing well with her brand.  If you visit the site you’ll witness the well thought out process and strategies spelled out in this interview.  In addition Kavit breaks down how to build a successful a coaching business and stand out from other coaches by showing us all how to find clarity around our messaging.

Productivity hackers rejoice!

We actually get into what I think is an interesting and well needed conversation about valuing our 9-5 job (for a change) and the way we use them to fund our side hustles.  Actually I like to think of my main job as a side hustle that pays for what I really love to do.  How do you see your main day job?

When hanging out with Harry in Vegas I learned more about Slack and why I should be using it.  in addition Harry drops the knowledge about even more services he uses to stay on top of his game and manage his time.  A few of the ones mentioned were: Fancy Hands, TaskRabbit, Fiber, Pocket, IFTTT, Luxe, and as I mentioned Slack.

Here are the highlights of my conversation with Harry:

  • Harry’s origins (Kind of like a superhero) and his background as a DJ.  We touch on how this became his first entrepreneurial exploit in New York and when he finally decided that being a DJ is simply a hobby and is not going to be his main income stream.  However it’s still his passion.
  • Being in the corporate for more than 20 years from banking, finance and customer service and moving to consulting selling high end data management tools.
  • The lessons he learned from corporate including misconceptions about our 9-5 jobs and his advice about putting things into perspective.  Trust me this was golden!
  • His thoughts about balancing a corporate job and projects on the side.
  • We talk his latest company FullCast and share the things he learned from highly successful entrepreneurs including managing outsourcing.
