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!

Try Something New…

When was the last time you tried something new? A few years back I was with my wife in a Wal-mart in a tiny Texas town. We were in the checkout line when I overheard a man chastise his son for trying to sneak a pack of sushi into the cart. "Do you even know what that...

This Caught Me Off Guard

Do you hate being interrupted? Yesterday I was walking in downtown Colorado Springs when a young man in his early 20's took a big step towards me, smiling. "Excuse me sir!" I stopped walking and noticed a clip board in his eager hands. Yay.... "Can you take a...

How to Own the Dinner Table

When was the last time someone overdelivered? Last year I upgraded my 2004 Nissan Maxima to a used 2014 Infiniti Q50. Out with the cassette deck, in with the all-wheel drive hybrid sports sedan. It being used, I missed the part where the overly enthusiastic sales...

Giving With No Expectations

Giving With No Expectations

"Trust is gained in drops, and lost in bucketfuls." We build admiration and fandom for celebrities over years... but when someone cheats on their wife, loses their temper on Twitter, or rams their sports car into a phone pole after one too many - the fallout is...

The Real Reason I Started a Podcast

The Real Reason I Started a Podcast

In February of this year I hosted a free beta group. I put a post out on Facebook (on my personal page) seeking volunteers to help me create the One Hour Funnel program. In exchange for lifetime access to the program, I would get their feedback. We met weekly on Zoom...

An Overnight Success

This summer we bought our 3 sons Rip-Stiks. (If you don't know, these are two-wheeled pivoting death traps for uncoordinated adults... but they are pretty cool). After observing for a few days, I thought, "I got this..." I bought an adult-sized Rip-Stik and strode to...

Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks
