“I should do that, but I just don't know how!”
How many of us entrepreneurs have said this? I'm talking with Josh Haynam today, co-founder of Interact Quiz Builder, about his repeatable system that anyone can use to go from a novice to an expert through simple practice. He's used this exact system to become a guest on over 100 podcasts and became an expert writer that's been published in Forbes, Entrepreneur.com and several hundred other publications. And he's also used this system to bootstrap and grow a million dollar company.
