GE 185: How Jon Carder Compelled 80 Million People To Use His Product, Empyr (podcast)

Jon Carder Empyr

Hey everyone, in today’s episode I share the mic with Jon Carder, co-founder and CEO of Empyr, a B2B platform that helps websites and apps generate revenue from online to offline commerce.

Listen as Jon shares inside info on how he got a deal with Yelp, the Holy Grail of enterprise-level customers, how he dealt with the “dark period” where the company struggled to move forward, how he got 50% of Empyr’s deals from “old school” conferences and 15% from cold calls, and the abundance mentality took Jon from zero to 8 figures of revenue within a year.

Times-stamped show notes:

3 key points:

  1. Celebrate RESILIENCE—keep working at your goal regardless of however many setbacks you face.
  2. Don’t take people leaving you personally and try to keep the relationship positive—you never know what your future with that person may look like.
  3. Emotions can FUEL you to keep pushing for that next step, so don’t resent the highs OR the lows; instead, USE IT!
