Is there anything more vulnerable (some would say terrifying) than asking for feedback, waiting for the responses, and then actually absorbing them? Why do small criticisms tend to outweigh earnest praise? And - what the heck should we be asking anyway?
This week, Annie P. is joined by one of the most recognized voices in small business podcasting, Nick Loper! Nick is a side hustle expert - with over 500 episodes of his podcast "The Side Hustle Show" to show for it. Nick shares his thoughts on validation, existing customers, surveys, and discovery before diving into the seemingly never-ending cultural phenomenon known as The Simpsons. "D'oh!"
