Neil Patel from neilpatel.com also quicksprout.com. A lot of you also know him because he's the founder of Crazy Egg and Kissmetrics and a number of other tools and other great pieces of software. He's created 4 multi-million dollar businesses and he consults a lot of other great businesses, too. He's just a wealth of knowledge.neil patel, blogger, content marketer

I brought him on the show today to talk specifically about: content, managing content, how to approach content, how to know what to write about, how many articles you should launch with, if you're just launching for the first time, how often you should be blogging and putting content out there into the world, and how to make the most out it, too. We put so much hard work into our content, a lot of it just gets put into the archives or we often do too much. What's just right? I asked Neil and I pick his brain on that to help you and Neil definitely delivered on this episode.

Lastly, we talk about he more recent book Hustle: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum. This book is kind of his response to a woman who he met who told him that creating a successful company can’t be done unless you’ve already had some kind of advantage beforehand. In it, he talks about how to hustle as an entrepreneur, how to know yourself, and how to build your business.
