The Business Action Planner with Corwin Hiebert (Podcast 447)

The Business Action Planner with Corwin Hiebert (Podcast 447)

Today I welcome Corwin Hiebert back to the podcast. You may know Corwin as the manager to David duChemin, but he is a man of many hats, one of which he wears as the co-owner of Taendem, a boutique company that offers business management services for creatives, and he’s here today to talk about an incredible new product that Taendem just released.

Business Action PlannerIn this interview, we discuss the Business Action Planner in detail, but also during our conversation touch on many important business tips from someone that really knows what he’s talking about.

Corwin’s Also gave us these tips, and we have a great discussion about each of these, so be sure to listen to the audio.

• Once your creative niche is solidified, shape your business model around the needs of others
• Develop a brand experience that is anchored on trust and generosity not just visual treatments
• Remove the chaos from your creative and administrative workflow so you can be productive and inspire confidence
• Take the mysterious out of your sales process by documenting the steps you take in securing clients/customers
• Be intimate with the details of your Cost of Business and Cost of Living so you can grow your business in light of your realities
• Make your target audience curious so that you draw a crowd instead of trying to stand out in one
I’ve started to go through my tasks in the Business Action Planner, and I can tell you, although I wish I’d had this years ago, it’s never too late to work on these tasks. I’m already finding lots of things that I really should tweak, even in my fifth year in business.

Today I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to chat with Corwin Hiebert, manager to David duChemin and the author of numerous books on creative business and management, and lucky for us, Corwin agreed for me to record our conversation.

  • How did you get started doing what you do?
  • As a photographer, what are the benefits of having a manager, and what should a photographer do to try and hook up with one?
  • What are the three things that you think photographers should do to become more successful?
  • What are the three things that you think photographers should stop doing to become more successful?
  • What is it like being David duChemin’s manager? 🙂
