BYOB 016 – This Is The End, My Friend.

Finish Line
Finish Line

In this episode – after much discussion, thought and second-guessing — we say farewell.

If you are to make anything that you do successful, you have to put in the effort to ensure you do it consistently, with complete conviction and passion; Most importantly, you have to be flexible.

With flexibility you have to accept change. Change of direction. Change of goals. Change of plans. I am not saying that you need to quit doing what you are doing if it doesn’t work immediately, but you do need to stay true to yourself and your goals.

Sometimes what you want to achieve personally today is not the same thing that you wanted to achieve 6 months or a year ago, and this is fine.

Unfortunately, The B.Y.O.B Podcast has moved from being a top priority for us and this has caused it to be ignored and we have not given the time and effort it needs to release a good show every week.

Because of this, we are moving on.

This is the end of the show, but not the end of Albert or Jon.

Where Albert Hangs Out Online:

You can find Albert in many places around the web, making hilarious videos and recording micro-podcasts. Albert definitely shines behind a microphone and camera, so make sure to check it out.

Albert’s (mostly comedy) blog:  AlbertHathazi.com

Where Jon Spends His Time:

Jon has taken up blogging, you should check it out:

Roll The Final Credits:

Although this is the end of one show, it is definitely not the end of Albert or Jon.  We are both planning to continue podcasting and building businesses online, so stay in touch and keep your eyes out for what is to come next.

As always, we would love to hear from you. Leave us a comment or drop us an email via our contact page and let us know what your plans are and where we can find you!

It’s been a lot of fun and I hope that we’ve at least proven to someone that two guys with a bit of ambition can put on a fun show — if only for 16 episodes!

Have fun and keep on building your businesses.

Thanks for everything,

Jon Nastor and Albert Hathazi



BYOB 015 – The Five Best Ways To Keep Your Customers Coming Back


In this episode of the Build Your Online Business Podcast, we are diving deep into the foundation needed to build yourself a solid, passive online income – from the ground up.

As business owners, we need to find ways to commit to an action, complete the task, and then reap the rewards of continually getting paid over and over again.
We are not looking to build jobs for ourselves.  We are building businesses that work for us, not the other way around.

The key to this is and always will be: recurring revenues.

We cannot have recurring revenues without customers that like doing business with us, so we need to know what is they want and how to give it to them.

What we get into are not tricks or secrets, they are proven business methods that keep customers coming back.

What you will specifically learn in this episode:

  • The harsh truth in business that most owners and entrepreneurs tend to overlook – both offline and online.
  • Why not all revenue is created equally. (and how to make your revenue more valuable.)
  • How you can spend more of your energy growing your business rather than trying to acquire new business.
  • How and why Netflix destroyed Blockbusters business in less than 5 years.
  • Why you need to actively analyze your churn rates in your business.
  • The Five Best Ways to Keep Customers Coming Back. (and how to build them in from the start.)
  • Why you should never treat customers the way YOU want to be treated.
  • Why content is important, but not that important.
