I’ve known Coran for a few years. Along with his wife Leanne they live a fairly nomadic life, but often spend 3-4 months in Prague where we have spent a lot of time together.

It was also an interesting chat from a general business & entrepreneurship stand point following on from my chat with Anton Kraly last week about Drop Shipping as Amazon FBA selling is a different but business model

We also have a great discussion about promoting yourself online including newsletter, YouTube/Facebook/Instagram video strategies to do week in week out, including how Coran repurposes content to all channels and his exact workflow.

In this interview we also discuss:

  1. How Coran started by networking his way on to podcasts
  2. How Coran bombed at his first speaking event in Hong Kong…. and this still led to Coran getting a customer!
  3. How Coran got his first paid speaking arrangement (in Ukraine)
  4. Corans hack for speaking to attendees after he has presented to maximise his contacts
  5. The importance of networking with speakers and sponsors at the event
  6. The reasons why Coran still speaks for free all the time even though he gets paid to speak

  1. Anton Kraly who talks about dropshipping as Amazon FBA selling is a different but similar business model
