In this latest Suitcase Entrepreneur podcast I get to chat with the lovely Laura Roeder. You may have heard about this gal who is making waves on the internet through helping others to learn how to create fame and use social media for their business.
She also practices what she preaches and it shows with her recent foray into reaching 7 figure revenues with her online business. She did, after all, invent the Creating Fame program.
I had the pleasure of meeting Laura in person at the World Domination Summit where she held a talk about something dear to her heart and mine, essentially how not to do everything yourself, and that’s why months earlier I had interviewed her on this very topic.
Everyone took notes, especially about the two magical words that have transformed her business…. in case you’re curious they are
A reply line she uses regularly when working with her team that empowers them to take the right action when she’s off traveling the world or speaking at various events. There is much wisdom in this young woman who’s been able to scale up her business fast while eliminating tasks she doesn’t like.
In this podcast she enthusiastically shares her organization and personal systems to better manage her online business and her team so that she can go on trips to India and Europe like she has done recently for months at a time. You will learn a lot from Laura – trust me.

Benny The Irish Polyglotis a larger than life character I had the pleasure of meeting at the World Domination Summit recently.
Well before that I had noticed his meteoric rise online as a gifted linguist and talented travel writer.
Yet Benny’s story is quite incredible, having never spoken anything else aside from English up until age 21, he managed to master the art of learning how to become fluent in 3 months and now speaks 8 languages fluently.
When we met he’d just come back from learning Dutch which I think is a particularly hard language to speak, even with my knowledge of German. Now he’s off to Turkey!
In our lively discussion Benny reveals his secret tools of maintaining his language hacking blog , his various websites and software that increases his task efficiency.
I ask the cutting edge questions:
1. What have you secifically done to get your community built and what were the steps you’ve taken?
2. What have you done to bring people to your site?
3. Can you touch upon two of the tools that have changed your life?
Useful tips from Benny
Don’t neglect Stumble Upon as a very useful social network for driving loyal traffic. Benny uses it everyday, he knows what StumbleUpon users want and writes the posts to attract them. Three of his posts went viral through doing this and one reached 200,000 thumbs up.
The most popular post on Benny’s blog has given him at least half his audience on his site, “How to speak English like the Irish” and his other tactic is commenting on other’s blogs.
You must listen to the great tool Benny introduced me too that I love called Boomerang, this simple tool has the power to save your inbox and those important emails from a fateful demise.
What did Benny outsource?
1. Design of website
2. Repetitive remedial tasks using Odesk.com
Also if you’re interested in learning a language in 3 months I can personally vouch that Benny’s program works a treat – I started using it in Argentina and it helped me beyond belief.
If you’re going to live a Suitcase Entrepreneur lifestyle – this is a must.
