This week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast is our fourth (or third and a half) interview with our friend Tiffanie Kellog.
Tiffanie and I discuss a question I've tackled over the last few episodes - what are some tactics to motivate referral sources who are all the same profession? How do you give back to a group of similar professions that all refer you business.
There are 16 different relationship builders. While we don't focus on all 16, some that we discuss:
- Featuring your referral source on a podcast, YouTube Video, co-author an article, or newsletter.
- Set up a speaking engagement for your referral source.
- Advising or Advice seeking
- Giving or collecting Testimonials (especially those that speak to a common objection a client may have to hire you).
- Calling your network to simply ask "How are you doing?"
- Doing fun events together
Tiffanie has a 13-week video program called "Thirteen weeks a Month" to help you save a few minutes here or an hour there. The goal of the program is that you gain 13 hours a week, which creates an additional 28 days of time saved - or one full month, so that you have 13 months in a year.

I've always said that there are two way to create money to pay down or pay off your creditors: (1) make more money, or (2) cut expenses.
One of the ways I've been able to make more money is through word of mouth networking, and many episodes of the Crushing Debt Podcast discuss networking topics.
Some episodes that talk about networking in general are 133 (FinCon2018), 33 (Business Card Graveyard) and 17 (Running and Goal Setting).
Every 6 months, my community has a garage sale, which is a great place to practice your sales skills - episodes 118, 86 & 68.
I've got episodes on living a spectacular life with the Asentiv program - 76, as well as word of mouth networking with Tiffanie Kellog (episodes 48 & 12).
Jason Avery with Constructing Success is episode 8.
Why I do what I do is episode 5.
I also talk about the difference between generating a referral versus an introduction to a referral source. I talk about tips and strategies to network at events and one-to-one. Finally, I talk about a question we'll tackle on a future episode - "feeding" multiple of the same type of referral sources.
In this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, I take a look at the different reasons our clients come to us for bankruptcy protection:
These types of debts do not discriminate between Chapter 7 & 13, and neither chapter necessarily better or worse to deal with these debts (look for a future episode on the difference between Chapter 7 Liquidation and Chapter 13 Reorganization, or check out our blog).
In this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, I talk about a topic requested by our listeners - divorce, real estate and debt.
While I've talked about each of these subjects in some manner, this is the first episode dedicated to the intersection of all three.
What should you know about real estate that you jointly own with your ex? What should you know about debt that you jointly owe with your ex? How did you take title when you were married and how does that impact the debt, and then the divorce? We explore all of these topics.
I would appreciate if you would share this episode with someone you know who is getting a divorce, or thinking about a divorce. We do not practice family law, but can help the divorcing couple to figure out what they can do with their home and debt. You can reach me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
