Dr. John Seago: Pro-Life Groups Promote Life-Affirming Services

"That there is a big responsibility for pro life groups now to amp up. And as we get into this election season, you know, wherever you start to see the real heavy pushes, you're going to start seeing more messaging, you're going to see clarification on what our laws actually do. But you're also going to see a bigger pro life message of groups like ours, you know, highlighting that we're not who the pearl abortion groups are trying to make us out to be, that we actually have been serving women for decades, and we're going to continue to do that. That these pro life groups actually promote life affirming services, whether it's medical or social through pregnancy centers and social services. So you are going to see that we're going to have to break some of these myths that the media and the left is trying to put out there about what it means to be pro life. They're going to try to paint us in the worst light, but we have a responsibility to show. No, these elected officials that works to ban abortions. They also worked to dedicate a $100 million to women's social services specifically for these populations to help these women overcome the barriers that they see whenever they're facing unexpected pregnancy, we have Republicans that are working on CPS reform that are working on adoption reform.

For Sports Agents LIV Golf Is a 'No Brainer'

"I think I got to take the perspective of an agent right now. Because if you think about this, the age of right, when you're a player, a lot of these high profile guys, they literally are on a leash by their agent. They don't do anything that their agent says not to do. A robot and the best sense of the word, and then when their agent tells them to show up where this, eat that, talk to him, get this phone number, play golf with him, they do it, right? They do it. So a lot of these dudes, especially these younger guys, can get swayed by the agents. So much and if I'm taking the agent's perspective here on Cameron Smith and he's got a $100 million fishing line out in front of him, guess what the agent fee on the PGA Tour is the normal one is. 20%. It's 20 percent. So 20 million dollars of that 100 million would go to this agent. That, that's generational money for the agent. Not just Cameron Smith, so what do you think that agents pushing for? What do you think bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson, all their agents were pushing for? All Greg Norman has to do is get a bunch of agents on his side. That's it. And he's going to have a full roster period. But so that's kind of my perspective on it. I've got kind of an aged point of view at this point with the live because the agents want these guys to take it more than anything. It's the biggest cut in professional sports. There's not another pro sport that pays 20%. To their agents.

A lot of these rumors turned out the just back just that rumors and fake news. So I don't know. I don't even know if he's going. I don't know what to believe anymore in the Twitter sphere and the Internet scene, but it sure does appear as if all the experts on the tweeter think the Cameron Smith is out of here. Yeah, I mean, he's the other thing, dude. I mean, some of these guys will straight up say, no, I'm not going like if it was more a car where a lot of these other a lot of these other rumors but cam Smith is not said that he is not going. Like he is all of his comments have been, you know, don't ask me. I just want the British open. You know, I'm here to celebrate that. And then this week it was, I'm here to win the FedExCup, you know what I mean? If the guys are not going, they're going to say it like immediately, I am not going. You know, maybe he's going to renegotiating a little bit after that British open situation where who knows. I mean, if he's taking a $100 million, which is a lot of money, which is what it was rumored on there. And that's the other thing reason you think it's probably true is there's a definite amount people are talking about. But if he's taking a 100 million racks and he won the British open, which with sponsorships and whatever, we thought might be worth 20 or so. Especially for him, number one Australian guy, who knows, dude. Maybe he's holding out for something. But you know, he could win the FedExCup too. He's playing well again in Memphis. I think he was two going into the FedExCup, so you know he's way up there. So if he plays well, he's going to win the damn thing. How about that? What if the Brit rainy British open champ and FedExCup champ leaves leaves the tour? Well, then you'd end up with this situation.

Remember when that was a big issue? Of gun violence. In the Second Amendment and kids getting killed in schools, what are we going to do about it? The government can allot money to protect the schools and give funding to local agencies and school districts to hire on police officers to help combat violence in the schools.

Why Does the Inflation Reduction Act Include IRS Hyper-Funding?

"This bill, as we mentioned last week and tried to warn, adds $80 billion to the IRS's budget and 87,000 new staff members to the Internal Revenue Service. 80 7 thousand new IRS agents. That makes the IRS larger than the FBI, border patrol and the State Department combined. That's what happened over this last weekend. And remarkably Democrats in tough Senate races like Mark Kelly and Raphael Warnock, they don't care. They voted for it because they know that they're still going to get over a $100 million in Democrat cash as the Democrats are now representing the white wealthy party, Republicans are getting outspent almost every race across the country. Because the values of wokeism are most consistent with miserable, wealthy white people that live in Malibu and Manhattan, and they want to spread their misery and imperialist upon the rest of us. The IRS adds 87 $1 billion. To their budget.

Charlie Unpacks the Most Dangerous Provisions of the New Democrat Bill

"I want to start this program by going into what happened over this last weekend. According to NPR dot org, the propagandist publication funded by our taxpayer dollars, Democrats passed a major climate health and tax bill. Here is what is in it. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer gives the thumbs up as he leaves the Senate chamber after passage of the inflation reduction act. Senate Democrats after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election year agenda passed a spending bill, which would attempt to tackle climate change. The high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion. So let's go through actually what's in the Bill. This NPR does a pretty poor job of detailing it, but we'll dance around with this, but let's start with this idea of climate change. I have to say, whoever came up with the branding around climate change is brilliant. It's an unbelievably brilliant strategy. You can call it a Trojan horse. You could call it a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's so brilliant about climate change is that you don't have to define it. Is that you have a unspecified fear that you could spend an unlimited amount of money on. Like AOC a $100 trillion. Why stop there? Why not a 130 trillion? You see, climate change is so brilliantly duplicitous. And it's a scheme to make people afraid, but they'll never actually get to the end point. That's what's so brilliant about it. So no matter how much you spend, there might be somebody with a fossil fuel somewhere in Midland, Texas, we need to spend another $100 billion to go find them. You see, if they completely change the economy into a green economy, destroying our energy supremacy, by the way, which is one of the most civilizational suicidal things that we could possibly do, they'll just then create a surveillance state to find out if someone still is using fossil fuels or natural gas, even

"What's happening in Arizona is an abject disgrace to the modern world. And this is not the first time this has happened. This is the fourth election cycle this has happened in Arizona. And every time we try to challenge the people in Arizona to fix this, Stephen richer, the state House, the state Senate, we get condescendingly talked to as if, oh, you don't know what you're talking about. We're not going to put up with this anymore. We are now 36 hours, plus of polls closing. We are now in the 38th hour, and there are still a 125 to a 175,000 ballots still outstanding in Maricopa County. I believe one of the reasons is because the establishment in Arizona wants to try to rob every day they can. From Kerry Lake to give her the victory speech, transfer her entire operation to a general election. Now we are about 93 92 days away from the midterm elections. You want to hear something even crazier? We are 60 days away from early voting. 60 days away. In a governor's race, that could be anywhere between a 75 to $100 million governor's race, or a Senate race that will be a 150 to a 175 million every day literally costs 2 millions of dollars. And so if you are delaying this unnecessarily of which, there is no excuse whatsoever.

It was just an interesting concept. Like you just paid out like let's just crazy idea pay only top ten, but then you pay people money for when they get their cards.

So one of the things I wanted to address, let's see the most important thing I want to address is when can we see our gas prices going down? What has to happen that our gas prices begin to go down and is this something that Joe Biden can actually do, his administration to do to effect change yeah, well, great question well, over the last few weeks, we've actually seen oil prices come down by about 15%. We've seen prices drop from the record highs or near record highs of a $130 a barrel. They actually crashed through a $100 per barrel earlier this week, so oil prices are coming down. It's not because of these reserves being released. As we discussed before, prices actually continue to increase after those reserves are released, they're coming down because our economy is softening. We actually saw our economy shrink during the first three months of the year and the Federal Reserve is not estimating the economy once again shrank during the last three months. And this is leading the marketplace to believe we're going to see less demand for oil.

Oil Tumbles Below $100 as Recession Fears Mount

"As I watch oil today, it's back on our a hundred bucks. That's good news. Do I think it's going to last? No. And the reason I don't think it's going to last is that as soon as the economy starts to show any inclination of being back up and running in a better way, right? Everybody's fearful of recession, well then what happens oil prices go higher and the reason oil prices go higher is because we have less oil because there has been a very definite push to get us away from fossil fuels and focus on alternative sources. The challenge is, of course, this is all happening at a really, really tricky time. And Americans are left, having to sort of grunt the hardship here of these higher oil prices, these higher gas prices. And so the Biden administration is really struggling. They're trying to figure out what do we do? What do we do? They came up with the grand idea that they would release oil from the SPR, the strategic petroleum reserve. That's basically our oil that we keep for emergency use only. So they went out and they this whole thing were releasing from the SBR. It just hasn't mattered really at all, but they are releasing from the SPR. The theory being there's that much more oil on the market and therefore, therefore, it should help bring oil prices down. But it hasn't. It hasn't had that effect because investors are smart, and this is a global commodity, and they know that there's just not enough oil. And so oil prices really haven't come down other than just in the last day or two, I think, is the world increasingly fears this recession, which I do believe I do believe we are in, right now.

Well, Charlie, I think it's over 39 million now, but to who's quibbling with the exact details, huh? Now these are inflated dollars, senators. So it would be something like 20 million, maybe a couple election cycles ago. But let's start with that. Who's spending that money? I mean, that's an extraordinary figure for a Senate race in Wisconsin. That's on pace to maybe be a $100 million race. I mean, the establishment must be trying to take you out and left wing interests who's spending all this money. That's what Democrats would call dark money, which they just hate until they want to use it to destroy somebody. And they're very good at the politics of personal destruction.

We can talk about what they've said, things like a guest has said an prominent anti vaxxer who said that Americans have been quote hypnotized into wearing masks and are duped into taking the vaccine. He himself has questioned whether young people even need to take the vaccine and has said you don't need to take. He doesn't think you need to take it if you've already had COVID, which is not what medical experts said. And on and on and on and on. There's been tons of offensive material and hindered as well. And he has put out a statement, which would hear in a minute. He's also insisted he's not anti vax, but just explained to us why concerns about Joe Rogan and COVID, which aren't new. They've been around for some time. Why have they escalated in the last few days? Well, they started escalating actually a couple weeks ago when there was a letter from 250 confirmed concerned scientists. Worried about Rogan's comments. But then it really took off when Neil Young pulled the said he who is a history of standing up against a large institute. There's large institutions in the music industry. He said, I'm going to pull my music, it's going to be me or Joe Rogan. And then Joni Mitchell followed him yesterday that our artist India re followed him also a popular podcast from grenade Brown. Said she would be no longer contributing episodes. So it's really ballooned and then internally as well, Spotify's employee base, which has long been in crisis over Rogan. They're actually having a town hall right now over this issue. Okay. And when Neil Young offered the option to Spotify of young or Rogan as he put it, so far Spotify has chosen Rogan. This is a man who has become a podcasting phenomenon. There are millions of downloads for every single podcast he has millions of followers on social media and let me give you an idea of what is podcast alike. Sometimes the conversations can be very long over three hours, here's a little of one with Elon Musk last year, which eventually drifted onto the question of the human race beyond earth. Could you colonize the galaxy in a million years? Absolutely. The entire galaxy.

"Why should clients or employees care about our journey to one hundred million dollars. Hey there i'm eric olsen in i'm kevin days join us our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. What's happening it's eric olson. I had a phone conversation with the client a couple of days ago and we were talking about various things and right in the middle of the conversation. You said you know what. Eric there's been some. There's been bugging me for a while. Your journey to one hundred million dollars is all about you. It's you and your company. What's it in for us the client like why should i care that you want to grow your company. Two hundred million dollars now eric. If you're taking us along for the ride then maybe i should care right if you're going to build one hundred million dollars company because you helped me build one hundred million dollar company that gets my attention but otherwise it's just you bragging about how big you want your company to be and i said you know what you're you're absolutely right. I need to talk about those things more often because the reality is that that is in my mind when i think about the journey to one hundred million dollars now when kevin and i i came up with this concept like when we bury i came up with the concept. It it was very self-centered frankly we're like we want to build a hundred million dollar company. That's awesome let's do it and then as a little bit of time when all we're like well why would anyone else care while our employees care. What's in it for them right and we kicked it around for a couple of weeks until we realized we know what the reality is. In order to build a hundred million dollar company we have to build a very large organization and at the time we were thinking lots of managers. Lots offices now. We realized that that's also gonna mean lots of agencies. The model that we are creating here is to have many agencies all with a specific industry or skillset niche. And what i mean by that is. We may have agency that only does web development. We already have an agency that only caters to digital marketing for hvac contractors also for law firms. Maybe one day. We'll start an agency. That only does. I don't know like pick something social media for plumbers right but berry niche agencies. We're going to have a whole bunch of them. Someone's gotta run those agencies already. We've put someone like eric. Thomas in the position of president arrival digital. That's an opportunity as we create more and more these agencies and we grow and we do have offices and all those things we need people to step up that is opportunity and frankly it's on limited opportunity for everybody here and the hundreds of people that will be adding over the years. But what's in for our clients. Well look i always knew that the bigger we got as an agency the better job that we can do for our clients. We can provide more people more skilled people. We'll learn so instead of having like one person as an example who knows social media have a team of twenty. they're kicking around ideas for our clients and they're doing amazing things right now. We may just be posting on facebook in the future. We may be filming every single day with our production company and chopping that up and putting out small videos micro content three times a day for a client for the same price. Baby probably more. But still you get the point like we're going to do so much better and bigger frigging awesome work in the future for our clients and we're learning along the way and we're applying and we're adding the skill sets more and more people. It will have a impact on our clients. We cannot grow to a hundred million dollar company unless we crush it for our clients and we have said this before but not in the context of journey to one hundred million dollars. What was said is that we want to produce amazing work for our clients so they make more money and then they spend more with us on marketing right so we want to initiate in. Continue this cycle. They pay us for marketing. We get more leads and revenue. They spend more on marketing. We get them even more leads and revenues and we all grow together. That is absolutely the goal. And that's what i explained to my client is that we have this vision ready. But we've done a terrible job of communicating it pretty much. We haven't communicated it outside of the walls in this office and that's a problem so you're probably going to be hearing me talk about this a lot more why we're going on this journey. What's the purpose. There is a purpose here and it's not just about big time money. It's not big time opportunity in changing the lives of every single person that we touch. That's the goal. I mean. I want to build help build big companies for our clients. They employ more people and they're on a similar journey to us. They're getting bigger. They're getting better. They're creating opportunities for their people. Everybody wins that is the goal of journey to one hundred million dollars. If you like this podcast and you know alert. Who wants to grow.

"What were we thinking saying. We wanted to grow to a one hundred million dollars a year. Hey there i'm eric olsen and heaven days join us our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. Hey there eric j olson. I wonder this offer myself. What were we thinking saying that we wanted to grow to one hundred million dollars a year in revenue. Cbs's such a bold audacious goal. That is almost ridiculous to say it. Let me tell you the story about how this came about. This all happened about three years ago. When me and kevin and jake were in a learning session and the moderator asks us well first of all the moderator reminded us and showed us a couple of examples about how most people overestimate what they can accomplish a one year but dramatically underestimate what they can accomplish in ten years because they think linearly and they shouldn't success stacks upon itself. It's like Interest building up in your savings account is star slowly at first but then interest bills on top of interest interested compounds as the same success success compounds upon himself. So if you're gonna accomplish a certain amount of success in a year. How much work can you do in ten years. And don't think the same amount every single year you're going to have more and more and more successful time goes on so with that lesson in mind he said. What are you guys. go into accomplish in ten years. What's the one thing that you're going to do where you know that you've achieved success in ten years time on so we broke up into small groups. That meet kevin. Jake went off into the corner and we started talking about One day we're going to have twenty offices and then after we said it and we kinda thought that were like wise ass. Accessible is having a lot of offices successful We talk about people. We're gonna have a. I don't know pick a number. A thousand people have a thousand people working for us and then we'll have. That's maybe maybe we can do just as much revenue do better job with fewer people with your office also with metrics site that we can kind of cheat the system. If we really to right now. I could probably have fifteen offices and i want to put that. In quotes air quotes. Fifteen offices nec companies. Do this kind of stuff all the time. They have an employee who works remotely in a different city different state and they said they have an office there. It's a home office. it's not an office. There's a big difference. I don't wanna play games like that. I don't wanna hire bunch of interns and army of five hundred interns and say oh. We reach our goal of a thousand people. Now that's ludicrous. The only thing that really matters when it comes to those kinds of company growth metrics really. I said the only thing that's not true but a a big metric is revenue and it's really hard to fake revenue so we quickly said you know what we want to. We want to target a revenue amount. How much time we were doing like just over one million a year in revenue and so we were thinking well okay if if we grow at a certain percentage every year we started to do some really rough math and it came out to forty billion dollars in ten years and an sec. Now like that's cool like that would be awesome. No doubt but what. I really want her million dollars like that. That's just a big numbers so ridiculous even thinking about going after that would have to change our mindset. It would just won't happen overnight and it won't happen organically just because we're going to have to really work at it and the moment that i said it cabinet and jake reichheld. Let's do it man and so we decided then that we were going to do it but then a couple of days later we ended other discussion right now. Like like for real for real. I want to do this. I want to get to one hundred million dollars. what's a really take. I don't want to just like you know position and and say we're going to do it and then we don't really try like we're gonna try. What are we going to do like. How are we going to pull this off so we started to actually plan this out and we talked about it a lot. We know that we're a company that wants to grow. We wanna grow big and the reason we wanna grow. Big is not just for the money. Yeah the money would be nice doubt out about it. I wanna create opportunity here so much opportunity within array digital that every single person that works you now. Every person that will work here their dreams can fit within array digital. It's got to be such a big monumental task and achievement that everybody can have success here. That's really the goal. We want to build opportunity by creating a one hundred million dollar year national powerhouse in digital marketing. That's that's really the goal so it took a little bit to get to that you know there was. There was a spark of inspiration and then a lot of conversation. About why hundred million dollars. What that means everybody. But that's now when it came time to start a podcast we. I started as a different name and then we decided to rename it to journey to one hundred million dollars. Because that's that was her passion. We talked about. We talked about growing businesses. So that is a story about how we got to be the people who talk about journey to one hundred million dollars the euro. Be twenty thirty by the time we hit it. That's our goal nine years away. But i feel like we're running out of time already. There's a lot of.

"Every so often you have to increase your prices pay there. I'm kevin daisy. And i'm eric olson. Join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollar companies. What's up everybody. This is kevin daisy so here ray digital mock company. We just increased their prices every so often we need to take a look at what our services are what our offerings are and then look at how our teams grown on are expensive of gone up and increase our prices. We're actually in a mastermind together and they're constantly telling us to increase the prices. Increase the prices. If you're busy you got to leads. And you're you're just like man. Just just keep increase in the prices until you get to the point where people are starting to say. Hey that's too much. You're starting to lose deals then. You can settle on a price that that makes sense but you should be in high demand. You should be paid. Which worth and so looked at the prices that you're charging when's the last time you increase your price or you still charging the same thing you did five years ago. I want to say a lot of companies and a lot of people with the freelancers. They kind of stick with a set hourly rate or a set price and they stick with that for quite a while. So look at your prices make sure increasing those at least on a yearly basis. Even if it's a small increase across the board you know if we have eight clients and we increase by a few percentage points that adds up quite a bit over over the book of clients that we have but sometimes you got to do larger increases so for us know our website price for building web websites just went up by maybe fifteen to twenty percent. So it's a larger jumped unusual but ness our largest department of people and that's got the most and we just felt we were under charging and i think we're still under charging at that price point that we're at but it was a move in the right direction. We don't want a ton of small clients bring on a client is a huge decision for us is just as much as it is for them. It takes a lot of work and effort to bring on a new client to make them happy to give them results. What worries me is having a ton of small clients because that clogs everything up and that makes us inefficient. So i'd rather have a lot of large clients or a handful of large clients instead of a ton of small clients. Just thinking like your pricing. Make sure you're charging what you should be doing and look at your competitors. Don't try to set your pricing based on what they charged. because not you're just a race to the bottom. You wanna charge what. You should be charging what you're comfortable with what you're worth and with higher end clients. That's what we're trying to do. And so we just made some price increases and will probably make some across the board the beginning of the year. And we're going to look at our cost and move them up when we think we need to so again. Prices bump them up. Don't be scared you're not gonna lose clients because if you do they probably want good client for you in the first place the other ones that respect you and need your service and appreciate your service. They're not going to go away. You may have a few that gripe about it but at the end the day if you're putting together a good product good services and they're gonna keep you around so increase there's prices and keep that.

"Masterminds or a crucial part of growing your business Hey there, I'm Kevin Daisy and I'm Eric Olson. Join us on our journey that building to 100 million dollar companies. Hey, what's up? Everybody? This is Kevin Daisy here. We are part of multiple masterminds. So today I want to take a moment to just tell you about some of the groups that were part of money, but more importantly why you that's not open or should definitely be involved in at least one Mastermind will definitely change your life your business how you think how you operate how you make decisions? So for us your original Eric and I are part of a group called digital agency Elite. It's ran by our good friend Jason swink who has successfully built agencies sold agencies and buys agencies by himself. He's very knowledgeable and has a lot to the table. But it's not just Jason's Jason's there to help. He's a moderator as well. But it's the group that really brings the value. We have I'm not even sure how many members probably 60 plus agency owners in our group around the country and actually run the world and we're able to talk amongst each other on a daily basis and also off on a monthly basis on video meetings, but really I can ask the hard questions things that I'm challenged with things. We're we're areas where we're stuck and you literally have all these other people that do exactly what you do to say. Oh, I've done that before and you might have 10 people say hey I did it this way. I did it that way. Why don't you try doing it this way and then so you can make you take a call that they make your decision. You're not just stuck with your own thoughts, right? You're not just saying. Well, what's the best way to do it? I don't know. Well, it's Google it. Let's try to find out what other people have done. You literally have an audience of people giving you feedback In This Very powerful to see how this guy did it or this girl did it and you can make your own conclusion on what's going to work best for you, but it's very powerful. It's like having a whole Board of trusted advisors. So look at joining The Mastermind Eric himself is also part of entrepreneurs organization, which I highly recommend you won't be with people in your same industry, but it's a nice well-rounded mix of and it's a private Forum type experience, which is excellent. There's also things like C12, which is similar to e o but it's a christian-based there is just Edge Waipio. There's a ton of other groups out there. So really what you can do is look out there see what what masterminds are out there. That might be a good fit for you some require you to log. A certain amount of Revenue some required to have certain amount of employees and things like that. So there's some qualifications for these groups. And of course they cost money. That's another thing. There's going to be some kind of cost to join in a monthly cost to stay in the group, but well worth it. So again look and see what what's out. There may be in your industry or if you're looking for more of a general kind of group. You can look off preneurs organization amongst others now Eric and I have learned from many groups and we're going to continue to stay in our Mastermind groups, but also started our own Mastermind caught a re mentors Original is driven success for us more continue to grow that company. That's where all our energy is, but along the way to we've learned so much that we want to share and we watched a group taking the pieces that we've learned from different groups and do that for others. So array mentors really looking for potential members that are starting Freelancers small business owners and entrepreneurs that are focused and dedicated to Growing their business and it'll be the just like our group will be there too often, but it's not just about us All the other members collectively will help each other. So we're being very selective on who we bring in and who we let in and we're actually taking names right now with the people that are interested and we're going to have a private conversation with each person that signs up to let them know what what it's all going to be about and if it's a good fit for them or not. If you go to a r a p a r r a y mentors, so it's a re mentors. We have all the information there. You can check that out. All you got to do is put in your name and email and then we'll reach out to you and have a conversation. So whether it's our mentorship program are Mastermind or another join a mass mind. If you haven't already how much more successful would you be if you could harness the experience of a group of successful business owners. Well, that is the exact group of people that we have in our business growth Mastermind. Check out more information at a r a mentor. Com..

"Instead of just having baby showers which had also have business showers. Hey there I'm Kevin Daisy and I'm Eric Olson join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollar comes. This is Kevin. Now this is something that's not my idea. This is something that I saw a post for mean, can't remember when I saw it but Elon Musk through this out there on some interview that instead that having baby showers, we should have business showers if you have a friend or a colleague business that we should all come together, we should though invent a party we should support them with referrals. And business help business books all kinds of cool stuff and make sure that they get off on the right foot and they're successful and I thought that was really really cool. So obviously, not replacing baby showers. So this is something should think about and honestly if any friends anyone I listening right now if you're starting a business or you're getting ready to start a business or you decided to start up business. I would love to help if I can. Get Advice though throw a little party to kick off whatever you WANNA call it. And I think that would be really cool to see. So think about. Supporting your friends and not just excel celebrate when they have a baby or buy a new house but businesses very important. It's a struggle and it's hard to get up and running with the business. And I'm sure. Those people appreciate it Lisa. Some encouragement and support if you can't offer actual business advice. But it should be something that's exciting and everyone should be behind them on that. Look around you look at your friends thing about having a business shower I. think it's a really cool idea real concept I share just literally like this meme on Lincoln Scott in hundreds of likes and comments, gotten thousands and thousands of us but also share the image I didn't say anything and That's not typically what works in Lincoln is short people a lot more. So anyway think about business showers it's a great concept. Law Must. You're going pretty good out there. All right.

"What's up? Everybody ? Needs Kevin Daisy. . So we are fairly new at sales as far as the station is concerned having professional. . salespeople. . We're about, , I guess a year and a half into it I. . It was Eric and I always sell in the business. . then. . We had a Glenn who came on about. . Not, , even a year and a half ago. . <hes>. . Now, if , our sales professional and we're looking to hire more so we're kind of quickly scale on this up. . But we have a very basic system as far as what we're looking for. . What the monthly quota is. . An and they should be bringing in and it is super basic and as for me, , it still works I know we might get more sophisticated as we grow in the teams grow and we have managers and things like that. . But right now it's it's super basic. . So interesting lay it out for you. . <hes> and you can see how all this may be different than your model or if you don't have a model because you're disowned for yourself. . <hes> something you can think about doing. . SARS is very. . Is. . Five thousand dollars a month. . In monthly reoccurring revenue. . That's the theme here monthly reoccurring revenue five grand every month, , not five gram once or twice or ten times, , and then Kinda sit back. . Five men every month. . That's all we care about. . We want those results. . If you do the math on that, , if you're GONNA do five grandmothers salesperson. . Times twelve that sixty thousand dollars of monthly reoccurring revenue. . So that means a month thirteen. . We've collected sixty grand. . From the clients that you've brought in as a salesperson here. . At Mont Thirteen but take that that book of business. . Times another twelve and that seven hundred, , twenty, , thousand dollars. . So a very successful salesperson in their first year should be over half a million at least. . And that's what looking at. . That's the kind of success we need to grow this business. . Now we do have ramp up period. . said. . You come on with us for as a salesperson which we're hiring right now as recording this <hes> for sales. . There's a ramp up period so The first few months. . Washington. . The first four months or not one hundred percent of that. . So we actually sort out with about a two week training period. . A month is twenty, , five percent of five grand, , which is twelve fifty. . Then he gets to fifty percent seventy percent and then the fourth full month. . After a two week. . Period you're expected to bring in five thousand in monthly recurring revenue. . So right now, this , is a very basic system and it works. . We don't care about how many phone calls you made. . We don't care about how emails you sent. . I don't care if you want to network in meetings or not doesn't matter to me. . It's. . Can You bring in five thousand a month in New York consistently. . And again, , this reoccurring. . So this is contacted. . Using on twelve month. . So, , as predictable cash flow that we can count on for at least next year. . So. . That's really how we're building up our sales and growing the company. . In if I can just hire another person and they can achieve that. . Five thousand per month each. . Then, , we're in really good spot and we're growing very quickly. . So. . That's what we're trying to do again right now is very basic, but , it works for us. . We've had other people tell us different things and don't do like do it like this. Do . like that. . But for us is working out, , well, , we also pay salespeople a salary plus the commission net. . And we do the life for that <hes> the life of the account. . So. . We've got a pretty good system going also the salespeople here they're not account managers. . So they can build a book business and then keep building it not managing. There's . accounts. . Our operations team which according to the episode on that but. . Operations seems takes over that relationship and the responsibility. . So the salesperson continued yourself. . Now, , they can touch base and and reach out of the client of course, , but it's not really the responsibility so. . They Cabal. .

So, let's start off first. You even know what do my business is if you inter-business you operated business. It's the business listening that you can find on the map can have your reviews. Phone number and general business information. Most people set this up. And then that's it. They set it. and. Forget it. Now if you're in the home services industry or something like that. You may pay attention to the reviews. A lot of business might just look at the reviews as they come in and tried to. Respond to these reviews trying to get some reviews. Most companies that see you don't even know they even have it. Or if they do they know it. Or just assume it's something that's kind of out of their control and. There's nothing they can do about it. I've even seen where businesses. Want to delete it or try to delete it. When in business? You're not going to believe that listing. Will will just create another one like once they find out that you're still in business so. You need to embrace this listing. And used to invest time and energy into this listening. It's really the new transactional layer of the Internet. So if I'm searching for marketing services. Local. Companies are GONNA come up in that. Let that list. Nathan Map. To a very short list, it's only three is called the local three pack. I'm only get three results there. overtop. Google ads below that. YOU HAVE SEO results. That three pack is very important to be in. And Google looks a lot of different factors on how it's going to rank your business in that spot. But there's a lot of things you can do. That, you take a look at for one in response to reviews and making sure that you don't have any bad reviews that have not been responded to you also in response to the good reviews. Suddenly thank you for your review. There's a lot of other things chewing a there's post that you can do almost social media platform. Post with images content if you have deals and specials that you can do on a weekly basis. and. Then on top of that, there's other things outside of that, you can use to rank this listing. So think about Seo for your Google, my business. I want to get into the details of the We's about that in this episode. But. Just take a look at your listing. If you have multiple locations, you need to look at every single one of them someone in your office or your team should be managing this listening in. Washington on a on a weekly basis. is something that we do as a service or a lot of our clients but. It's really so much more than that. If you can rank that the amount of traffic phone calls, directions, and all these kinds of actions will go way up says, increase your business. So take a look at Goma business. Google has put a lot of energy and effort and. Financial backing. INTO THE SYSTEM What we call my business is not going to go anywhere. And if Google cares about it and you run a business, you should care about it. So take a look at it. See what yours looks like and try to improve it. We're on a mission to.

"What's happening? It's Eric J Olson. We're all in such a rush these days to progress career to progress our companies to get to the next stage that sometimes we think that the only way forward is just to on through even when we really don't have it in us. Now generally speaking, I, would say, always press on but sometimes you're just think sausage or you need a break or you need a change. And I think it's OK every once in a while to take a break Amazon take a long break but take take a breather. As an example. Now I'm I'm training for a half Ironman, which is coming up in September, and it's a lot of training. I am exercising ten times a week in six days and it can get quite exhausting. But recently always running doing my long run of the week and the first thirty minutes were just terrible. And I was like in a fog and I was feeling good i. just wanted to stop and catch my breath and I had a little bit gatorade with me and I decided I I hate doing that very very rarely stopped but I stopped and I walked for about two minutes and I drink some gatorade and I had some goof. You know what? That is an energy gel pack. And I was like Oh man this is an hour and forty five minute long run than to do and already stopping at thirty minutes. This is going to suck. That was my thought and after the about two minutes or so of walking, I gotta go so I picked it up and started running again and for the first couple minutes I felt pretty good and I was like I I guess go and the and the Gatorade Kinda helped. But then a couple of Minister N- into twenty minutes that turned into forty five minutes at turned into eventually the full hour and forty five minute long run I. got done without stopping again ones and I felt great and as a matter of fact, my pace was picking up and it just turned out to be a fantastic run after that first thirty minutes and you know when I came back I thought well, that's really weird I wanted to pause. Very badly, but also free that it was going to hurt my progress and in actuality what happened was it helped tremendously. We have these kinds of needs in business life and in our careers all the time, but we're so busy all the time we're running around. So often that we actually don't even want to pause, but that's what vacation is for right that's what weekends are for. That's what maybe three day weekends for. Either you feel like if you take a break is really going to kind of set you back or maybe your competitors will get one over on you or something like that. It's just not reality you need time to recharge sometimes physically sometimes mentally and a lot of times both so we. Go down and you feel like he does eat a press forward. I would caution that may be you know what pressing forward is probably not the right thing. Sometimes it is. Sometimes it is. You know yourself law enough. But certainly, there are positives to take a pause taking a break take that vacation taking a long weekend. Or taking that two minute.

"Hey. There I'm Kevin Daisy Americans. Join us on our journey to building one hundred million dollar companies. What's up everybody? This is Kevin Spacey here. We recently changed our mission statement I want to share with you what we change it to in why we changed it. So for a while or Mrs David was to dominate digital marketing in Hampton roads. And that mission has served us very well for the last two years. Now, typically, your Mississippi savings should take you for about three maybe five years at the most, but it'd be something you can. You can see in the future. It's not quite a vision which could be very long-term. At least ten years. But it's something that you should be able to accomplish in the next few years. So we feel that we have moved past our original mission statement. and. We have just made an update to fit our new goals. That are going to take us to the next couple of years. So the new mission statement is to dominate do marketing for our clients in the home services. Medical Lol. Industries. So, now instead of geographically trying to dominate as marketing. It's in the three segments or these three industries. So no longer doesn't matter if they're in our backyard in our city in our region. Is that we want to be good in that category. So this three categories are our sole focus. At digital marketing. So Again, new goals were growing we had to realign. We look at the data and see where we're GONNA fit and those are the three segments that we really do the best end. So our new mission statement is now. Rolling out there. We've told our team I sort the post about it sorta put it on a website. And that's going to take us. Hopefully, the next couple of years to where we feel we've done a good job at that and see where that that goes from there. your missions ticket three to five years to to hit. I'm if you do it sooner, that's great. Make adjustments updated. Our vision however remains the same. That's to create opportunity by creating a hundred million dollar powerhouse. That's hence the name of the podcast and that will continue. So stay tuned. Take a look at your mission statement. Does it really mean anything to you or was it much of a bunch of gibberish when he wrote it and it didn't have any actual meeting or have any obtainable goal something that you can hit Taylor that mission statement make sure it's right updated get your team to believe in it and behind it. And it's going to do.

"Hey there I'm Eric Olsen I'm days. Join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. Hey there it's Eric j Olson many many years ago I made an agreement which turned out to have killed my old company. So the agreement was an exclusivity clause in particular I, agree that we were not going to participate in a contract rebid. DOUBT WAS GONNA come up in a few years. I wasn't really sure when it was. This is way back in my navy contracting days and I that. We weren't going to participate. And that really came back to bite me because when no contract got rebid I wasn't able to participate and without winning that contract again that was it for the company. We had one client under one contract and we're done. And what I realized was that that exclusivity clause that I agree to which is basically what it was. It literally killed the company. Fast forward another ten years, or so to where we're at today. And I have frankly version to exclusivity now. Let me define what that is for anyone. That's not quite showroom. Talking about an exclusivity clause is where a client asks you or you give. You give them exclusivity for your services. That's really what it means. Okay, so the way that this goes down. Let's say that as a digital marketing agency. We're talking with I. Don't know a a home remodel. and. Says Oh we really like you guys and okay. We'll pay what you're asking for, but we don't want you working with any other home remodelers. Not they could that which means that no home remodelers anywhere. Are Allowed to work with us in the future. or it could be geographically based somehow right, so it could be within United States, or maybe our state of Virginia or maybe just our region, which is the Norfolk Virginia Beach region, or maybe even just our city, which happens to be Chesapeake. There's lots of different geographic constraints that you can add to that, or maybe it's within a mile or five miles of their office right? There's a lot of different ways you can actually find the geographic exclusivity of one of these agreements. Another way that you can find it is they don't want us working with this one two or three named competitors of theirs. But the the problem with exclusivity is you're walking yourself in to this agreement, which means you're locking yourself out of opportunity, remember the story. I said in the very beginning I agree to exclusivity foreign event that was going to happen years from when I actually agreed to it, and it bit me in the ass to the point where it took down the company. So anytime a client assets for exclusivity. Right off the Bat I am hesitant about even discussing it, and frankly the answer is we don't do that. Now I say that, but like most things in life. There's a reasonable situation where you may want to give exclusivity. For us, we've defined it as. It has to be a really large has to be a really large opportunity, and what I mean by that is. This cannot be a run of the mill kind of contract for us. This has to be a very large contract, and it has to be for very long duration, and we have to make a client that were that we would give this to has the financial wherewithal, and they have the the aggressive ambition to actually do something with this exclusivity that we are going to give to them because we. Are Hitching up with them for the long haul. They're not just any old client anymore. Although we treat all our clients, the same, no matter what now with our future is directly tied to their execution and that. That's the issue. I'm not so sure that I want my future tied to execution of some other company that all. I can really do provide marketing for right I don't run their customer service department run their executive staff meetings I. Don't make decisions about spending I. Don't do a lot of stuff for them so I'm hesitant to time my future to them so. For Exclusivity I've told you that like. It's burned me badly in the past, and it's just not something that we are going to entertain us is just massive opportunity. If someone asks you for exclusivity. I would highly highly recommend you. Stay away from it, if at all possible and if you're going to do, it needs to be an extraordinary.

"You should never be afraid of enforcing your policies. Hey there. I'm Eric Olson and I'm having nasal. Join us on our. To building a one hundred million dollars company. What's happening? It's Eric J Olson over the years. We have taken some of the ways that we work and we've codified them into policies. These policies are not really all that extravagant. They're ridden in a Google doc. They're written in a way where it's very clear that these are the ways that we're going to perform a work in certain circumstances or certain situations. One of those policies has to do with how we handle late payments from a client. Now for us, we bill. Our clients upfront at the beginning of a one month long cycle, and we encourage all of our clients to pay by H or credit card and we do that because there's a lot of positive reasons for it, but the bottom line is, we will get paid up front versus having to hound them and turn ourselves into a collection agency. Hoping to one day get paid. So we tell people upfront. Please pay by Ach a credit card, but if you insist on paying by check then we're only going to extend you net seven terms. What that means is that. Once they receive the invoice could seven days to send us the cheque and for us to have received it. So this policy that we've had for a long time. We actually really made a little more stringent and the way that it goes is on the day that is do we have not received payment then they get. the, email from Caccia saying Hey, just friendly reminder, it's do. And please pay within a week or else. There will be a late fee if another week goes by now. It's one week late. They get the late fee and continuing fees on top of that. And then there's another email in a phone call that goes out saying. Hey, you're one week late now. Terms are net. Seven is fourteen days. We needed to pay within a week or we're going to have to suspend all services for you. By suspending services that means we're GONNA. PAUSE ADS WE'RE GONNA stop writing articles. We're going to stop posting on social media and we're GONNA. Turn off websites if they're on our servers, which of them are so? We're going to basically to stop doing everything and stopped providing value. Until you get caught up now it may seem a little extreme, but at this point the invoices three has been issued for three weeks now. Recall we to get paid on day one like the time. The date that the invoice comes out. We Wanna hit their ACH and get paid, but now we waited for three whole weeks and just one more week. Another invoices GONNA come out. The client is starting to get more and more behind and US concern for us. We say we will suspend services, and so we tell the team suspended all services and what we've had in the past is a lot of questions. Should we really suspend them. Eric are. You aware of this and so there's been a lot of communication internally about whether we should actually fulfil our policies are not and what I wanted to get across to the team and I I. Hope I have by turning this like how to document into a policy and then teaching the team, exactly what the steps are is I, want them to stop questioning whether they should suspend or whether they should follow the policy when it comes to appoint where it affects. The clients at aren't paying US so again. We want to get paid upfront. We've told clients that they've agreed to it in writing, and if they choose to take out by sending US check in the check is just late or they haven't improved check which happens a lot. You know there's consequences you can't work for free so. You know this policy is important and whenever we have a policy. You have to train your folks to follow it so like in this case, people continue to question. Should we really follow the policy well? When that question is asked, the circumstances normal like this, there's no extenuating circumstances where we should change our mind whatsoever, but they're unsure of it and through repetition and through enforcement. That's where you start to get to the point where policies means something, and they basically just get followed because you've gone through the exercise in ritual so many times that you already know what to do. If you have policies and procedures I recommend you do the same thing. You don't really need to be evaluating every single scenario every single time. That's the whole point of the policy. Put in a writing teacher. Folks enforce it. Continue to do it..

"If. You don't have a written process. You are winging it every single time. Hey there Eric Olsen and I'm heaven days. Join us on our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. Hey there, Eric J Olson. One of the things that I've been doing for a long. Long time is defining process, and what am I early as jobs I was thrown task of helping to bid on big government contracts. And I knew from my training the basic way of doing it, but there really wasn't a process to the whole. You know from start to finish and one of the things that I did is I wrote down, Ashley. What those steps were so that it was repeatable, not only for me, but for someone else in especially if it was a big project, I could bring someone else into. Help me and make it just follow the process. When I was doing government contracting several years later, one of the problems that we had on their software project was that it was a very big software project and had to be installed on government servers. And no one had written down the steps. It was this big mystery. Sometimes, the software could be installed in two hours other times it to two days, and it was unpredictable so when I became the project manager of that project. One of the very first things that I did knowing this was a big problem for the team is I sat down side by side with the systems engineer and I had him show me every single step and I would write it down. Okay, he just clicked this button Oh, and then you click that button and any type this in and then put a password, and by the way where do you get those passwords? And outright down all this information and it turned into like a ten page document. No wonder it was variable as far as how long it took, because it was ten pages of instructions, and the guy was doing it for memory this one guy. Talk about getting hit by a bus scenario if he got hit by a bus or he won the lottery, or for whatever reason he wasn't around all that institutional knowledge would have been gone. But. I wrote it down and so that we can train other systems engineers, and once we started to write it down. We saw inefficiencies in the process, and we made it more efficient and quicker and more predictable. And that is exactly what we've done at a rate digital. We've taken that kind of experience in that kind of knowledge, and we've brought it into a digital. Almost everything that we do here has a process now, not saying fall it perfectly every time and I'm not saying that everything has a process, but we have process around here and usually when we do have a process for something. It tends to go pretty smooth. So as an example, we have a sales process. We do fairly well sales. We have an interviewing and an on boarding. Process for new employees seems go fairly well. We have an on boarding process for our clients which we talked about a lot on this podcast. That seems fairly well. When ever there's a problem in the business, it turns out that there either is not a process that has been defined or As luck would have sometimes there is a process, but we either forgot about entirely like we already knew the process was, but we forgot, or we skipped a step or two or get the whole thing, even though he knew about it. That usually is when we have problems is when we forget about our process or one we skip steps, or we track it another thing that happens a lot because we're trying to satisfied new clients, get them up and running very quickly and a lot of times, not a lot of times. Sometimes, we will actually skip steps in our process to try to make them happy. And what we've realized over time from our lessons learned whenever there's a failure in the company is when we do that. It turns into problems. Process Super Important. All you have to do is what I do with as systems engineer. Just sit down. In particular next to someone who knows what they're doing and just start writing down the steps. It's really that simple. Write it down practice it refine it. Practice it and refine it more. It will make you a better company.

"Days of join us on our journey to building in your one hundred million dollar company. What's happening my name. Is Eric J Olson and I used to be a paper boy. That's all right. When I was growing up I would deliver the newspapers in my neighborhood. We had a townhouse neighborhood which meant that. It was really pretty a quick to deliver the news payers because the townhouses were relatively close to another but before I got my big break to have my own route. I I got a GIG with one of the brothers of my friends to collect his paper out money for him so this is going way back in the day whereas the paper boy you would deliver the newspaper every morning and then on the weekends you would have to go around with collection book and you'd have to collect the money that the customer owed you and then you would keep a portion of that and give the rest to the newspaper antiquated system but hey man that was like way back in the day before you know the Internet and stuff like that and my friends. Big Brother had the route and he would just didn't want to collect the money as so he hired me any higher than my friend to collect the money on his behalf and the agreement that we had ad was we would keep ten percent of all revenue collected. Well his brother was like two or three years older than us and he was kind of big and burly compared to us and and we were afraid that we would collect the money give it to him and then he would just tell us beat it and he wouldn't give us our ten percent. We thought we would just get beat up and he would keep our lunch money. Well what we did in order to make sure that we got our money was as we collected it. We would keep our ten percent so before we ever overturned over the money collected. We took our ten percent out now. That turned out to be a great thing by the way the order brother didn't make a fuss of it. He Nuraini a paid ten percent so we didn't have to explain anything we just told them. We kept our ten percent but it was a pretty good lesson learned at an early age. Make surge you pay yourself first. If you are do some money then make sure that you with hold up before the rest of the funds go elsewhere and and it's a lesson that we've learned here at original. I've applied throughout my career in various ways. It's certainly a lesson that applies to to investing and to saving money and that applies personally and to the business. We pay ourselves before we pay others right. So if we have a goal here to read digital to save a certain amount of money which we do then every time that we get paid we have a small percentage that goes goes into a bank account. And it just accumulates over time you could call it profits. But it's not exactly the amount of profits that we make in a given year or a given timeframe is just a percentage that we put off to the side and make sure that it stays there. And then whatever's left over basically is what goes to pay for expenses so we pay ourselves first exactly the way that I did it when I was collecting money from friends. Big Brothers paper out so it's pretty interesting when you look back on your life and some of the like early. Do things that you did to make money early freelancing things early hustles how. There's actually lessons learned there that you may have forgotten about until so you take some time to think about it. There's a movie where the paper boy said. I want my two dollars. I totally forget what movie that was. If you remember. Hit me up on twitter later. I am Eric. J Olson Eric Ending and a K Olson any o n but that was me imagine a little Eric j Olson Zain saying I want my two bucks.
