Ep. 29: Community First w/ Corbett Barr

Community First w/ Corbett Barr

There are many ways to create and run online businesses, but on today’s show I’m super excited to bring you a guest who has built his extremely successful business online in a unique way (and whose business helped me grow my own business from starting out as a struggling non-profit to now a 7-figure business with multiple team members!) Corbett Barr shares with us why you should focus on community and your audience first — before you focus on creating your product or offer — and how beneficial it can be for your business.

Corbett is the founder/CEO of Fizzle, which offers video training and community for digital creators and entrepreneurs. He has been self employed on the Internet since 2005, earning a living from blogging, podcasting, online courses, memberships, SaaS and more. Corbett recently completed a full digital reboot, deleting countless blog posts, social media posts and accounts, in order to refocus and reevaluate his digital self.

  • Why focusing on solving a problem for someone is KEY
