  1. Thanks for reading my comment guys. I think I’m a different Brad though. I’m from New York, didn’t get a skateboard recently, but did get snowshoes. All the best!

  2. Great episode! I need to grow in the ‘measure, track, analyze results and improve’ area! I’m so much more of a people person and always left the numbers part to my husband in our previous businesses, but no more! 2014 is the year for me to embrace statistics!

    Awesome content, thanks for being willing to be transparent!

    James, throughout the episodes of Think Act Get you reveal yourself to be sceptical about a number of unsubstantiated claims across a number of fields. If you didn’t know already, “Skepticism” (American spelling) is a pretty mainstream topic in the science category of Podcasting. It’s how I got into podcasts before discovering IM. Skepticism concerns itself with using critical-thinking to examine everyday problems or beliefs and filtering fact from popular conjecture on the basis of evidence. It’s like offline split-testing. If you ever have the time – and you appear to – really recommend you check out the Skeptoid podcast. I think you would really enjoy it as you munch your wilted spinach.

    James and Ezra, When I listed to your podcasts driving in my car, I find myself with a permanent grin on my face…and thats why I keep coming back. I’m entertained, educated and learn something every podcast. The format and the dynamic work for me. Great work guys.

    I was listening to this episode while being in Austin, TX on the way to the ASM event before knowing Ezra will be a presenter there. What a surprise. Ezra, your teachings about brand building and engaging customers in the ecommerce btusiness model was eyeopening. Many thanks for that.

    As for results I looked at mine for he last year and it was a good excercise . They show that I actually achieved something. Not a much as was planned even though lets celebrate them. It will be may a baseline to improve and build solid business this year.
