SPI 316: The Art of Scaling with Nathan Chan from Foundr

How do you take an idea and grow it into a six-figure business, a multiple six-figure business, and then scale it to a multiple seven-figure business? That’s what we’re talking about with today’s special guest: Nathan Chan, founder of Foundr Magazine.

Foundr Magazine has turned into a powerhouse brand since I last spoke with Nathan (Episode 169). So much has happened! Today, Nathan is going to dish on all that he’s done, and all that he’s had to stop doing in order to grow. I’m basically just turning the mic over to Nathan so he can give us the scoop on what he’s learned, what he’s aiming for now, how he’s building his brand, and why his mission with Foundr has increased 100x.

Stick that phone in your pocket and listen close, because this episode is stuffed with insights and powerful takeaways. That’s what Foundr is all about—helping entrepreneurs create a successful business. Nathan has a lot to share, so let’s get started!

We talk a lot in this episode about scaling up and team building, and a common question I get is “how do you manage your content when you’re scaling up?” Well, I have an excellent solution for you: CoSchedule. This is the number one tool I’d recommend for content management—it’s great if you have a team or even if you’re just starting out. It helps you manage your content on WordPress, on social media, and more. There are so many useful features and automations within CoSchedule that I know will make your life easier, so check it out at [Full Disclosure: As an affiliate, I receive compensation if you purchase through this link.]
