E-commerce, WordPress Summits & Watches with Jan Koch WPCP: 171
Talking with Jan Koch was one of those interviews that seems like it should have happened much, much sooner.
I’ve been following Jan Koch for a few years on social media, we have quite a few mutual friendships and for one reason or another, we simply hadn’t connected sooner. I’m so glad we finally made this interview happen. AND… I’m going to go ahead and give a little bit of a prediction here and I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more from Jan as an authority/influencer. But that’s just my two cents. 😉 . Connecting with Jan (finally), has been a perfect example of the power of relationships. Since having this conversation Jan has connected me with someone who you’ll be hearing more from (hint: he has a SaaS product you’re ALL going to want to use), I’ve signed up for the Virtual Summit Mastery (probably one of the best courses I’ve ever purchased) through Jan’s recommendation and link and feel like we’re just getting started.
I had a ton of fun talking with Jan (I know, I know… I say that all the time. But it’s true, I love having these conversations) and think you’re going to get a ton from this interview (as well as the discount Jan has offered to my listeners for his amazing wooden watches! But you’ll have to listen to the interview to find out what that’s all about).
