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!

Winners Always Quit

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

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…

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...

"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…

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...

Try Something New…

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...

Selling The Dream, But Living The Nightmare

Selling The Dream, But Living The Nightmare

Don't let someone's social media profile fool you. You know the type: perfectly coifed hair, baby endangered creature in their arm, perched atop an Italian car parked in front of a marble mansion, embarking on their next exotic vacation via a private jet... Hashtag...

This Caught Me Off Guard

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...
