5 Reasons Why EVERY Online Entrepreneur Should Go Back to Basics


The New Business Podcast has now officially become Youpreneur.FM.

This first Youpreneur.FM episode kicks off with host Chris Ducker discussing the importance of why entrepreneurs need to go back to basics when it comes to building their businesses.

Chris changed the name of the show to coincide with the launch of the Youpreneur Community, which launched very recently to a flying start!

You’ll also see that the show has become part of the Rainmaker.FM Network, which is owned and operated by the folks at Rainmaker Digital (formerly Copyblogger Media) and is your one-stop audio shop for everything digital marketing, sales, and online business related!

The format of the show has changed a bit, too — it’s even better! Now Chris will be coming to you twice a week: first, with a “training” or “mastermind” episode, and then in the second episode of the week, he will continue to have the usual interview conversation with a world-class business expert.
