Here's some of what we have on tap, just from trolling the forum here:

Starting your business with no money
Copyright/trademark issues
Incorporation
Getting started in government video

I've gotten a request to do something on working with ad agencies. I love it -- anybody know some ad agency folks? Especially in The COW.

Anything else?

Developing a pricing structure
Customer contracts

Thanks for asking.

Great ideas, Greg. Thank you.

I love the idea of writing better proposals. Most I have ever seen do little to position the proposal with the client's interests at the heart of the pitch.

Best,

Ron Lindeboom

Tim -

I think simpler is better. We barely scratched the surface on the first podcast, so how about one or two topics at a time and an attempt to go deeper into them.

How 'bout:

Hi Tim, I absolutely loved the first episode and can't wait for the next. Congratulations on being so well placed in the iTunes list. I learnt so much and the great thing is hearing people who are ahead of me talking about things that are really important in growing a business that will last. The area I am really trying to develop right now is also knowing how to quote properly and put together a positive, lasting impression with new clients that doesn't leave me regretting the day I posted the quote. Anything you can find to talk about on that subject I think will be a great help. Thanks, Simon.

Based on recent populairty of the forum (and personal experience) here are some possibly useful show ideas.

How and when to fire a client gracefully,

How to recognize a great client from a not-so-great client (i.e. Grinders),

Contracts and negotiation (would go well with the 'working with ad agencies' podcast).,

Advertising, what works and what is a waste of money,

NETWORKING Cold calling and other fun things to do when there is no work.

Corporate representation of your business (business cards, websites, etc.). Tips and trick on how to put your best e-foot forward,

Admitting your own mistakes and correcting them in ways that keep the client happy (would be a great forum for example citing. If you need help, let me know, I've made LOTS of mistakes and survived...),

And since it's a biz podcast, perhaps some mundane stuff like:

Quickbooks, Quicken, or Quickly get an accountant. Which one is right for you?

Invoicing/Estimating/Billing/Budgeting, and idiots guide to getting paid,

Insurance, what and when you need it,

Hopefully this helps.
Cheers,
John

I typed that previous post way too fast. Please don't slam me for my typos.

Wait, that gives me an idea for another show.

"Attenttion to detale when communicating with clients. What your speling says about you."


Give me a break, guys. I was educated in south GA :-).
