Cody Builds A Business Podcast

The Cody Builds a Business Podcast documents my journey of starting a 7-figure business from scratch. When I started the show in April 2018, I literally had 0 influence and followers online. My email list consisted of roughly 30 customers from my digital marketing agency, Red Anchor Marketing.

So the podcast documents the journey from completely unknown to 7 figures.

Thanks for joining me!

How to Grow Beyond Word of Mouth

There's an issue we need to address in our business. Tell me if this sounds familiar: 1 - we identify a problem in the world and create a solution. This is our "magic trick". 2 - we share our magic trick with those in our inner circle. 3 - we get some deals, make a...

The Escape Plan

My phone vibrated in my pocket. I popped up the antenna and flipped it open. "I have a problem...and I heard you can help me..." Wednesday on the podcast I admitted Google and YouTube are my friends. It's incredibly empowering to know how to master complicated tech by...

Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty

Last week, the boys and I were cleaning the house while Mom was out of town. We braved the biting Colorado breeze and raked the leaves out of the yard, pruned bushes for the winter, and added some last minute Christmas lights. Jacob (12), got inspired to...

The Biggest Expense in your Business is…

What's the biggest expense in your business? In November 2017 I had some serious momentum in my business. I made more money Nov-January than I had ever made in any 12 month period prior to that. Crazy. So, I did what any other high-growth entrepreneur would do... I...

Winners Always Quit

We've all heard the saying "winners never quit, and quitters never win." False. Winners quit all the time... The most successful business owners I know quit: draining, toxic relationships... services they don't like fulfilling (trying not to use "draining" twice...)...

The Problem with Expectations

When was the last time your expectations fell short? Whether it was a movie you were excited to see (that fell flat), an awesome-looking gadget bought for $3 on Amazon (that fell apart when it arrived), a restaurant you heard was amazing but ... turns out it was...

The ABC’s of Relationships…

"Is Cody alright?" The look on her face was genuinely concerned. A friend of my wife lightly touched her arm as she leaned in and said, "He seems... so quiet. Is he OK?" OK?!?! I was great, in fact! I had just completed the gauntlet of socializing with my wife and her...

People That Pay, Pay Attention

Have you ever gained access to something for free? Maybe you shared a login to a course that a friend bought... Or hacked the login to a membership site that you weren't a part of... Or, more legitimately, you signed up for a free beta group or course... On the flip...

The No Spin Zone

"I don't.... remember" he muttered, eyes darting around nervously. "It's pretty straightforward," I replied. "Did you brush your teeth or not?" My son, [anonymous - you'll have to guess which one] shifted his weight and looked up again. "Welllll....... I was GOING to...

The Pain Worth Enduring…

I was reading a book last week and it talked about the avoidance of pain... We often think that life would be better if we could just avoid pain. On the surface it sounds good, but it's completely the wrong way to look at it. Let me explain... Let's say you wanted to...
