Fresh Take: Dr. Edward Hallowell on Renaming and Reframing ADHD
"Book is all about sort of what's new in the field. Just the first thing. That's new in the book. Is we give the condition a new name. the name when i first learned about it in nineteen eighty one was called attention deficit disorder and then in the nineties. They threw in the eight so then it became attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. And you know those are all out of the medical model which is rooted in pathology. You know you go to the doctor not because you feel well but because you feel bad. So it only stands to reason that medically based conditions would have a pathology slanted name so and that's fine but when it comes to this condition it's totally inaccurate and it also conveys a kind of stigma kind of shame kind of feeling less than and those are very damaging so it's more than just cosmetic it's more than just a semantics really gets right to the heart and mean you get this diagnosis. You're told you or your child has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. And you feel like you've just been punched in the gut. You don't really know what it means but you know it's bad sounds bad so it must be. Yeah exactly and so the fact is the description is inaccurate. We have the condition myself. So i say we don't have a deficit of attention quite the opposite. We have an abundance of attention. Our problem is to control it and then the disorder. I don't see it as a disorder you know. I went to harvard college and medical school. I've written twenty one books. I've been married thirty one years. I've got three wonderful kids. That i don't have a disorder. I have a brain difference. And so i see it as a trait. If you manage it properly it becomes an asset. If you don't yes it can ruin your life so it has the potential to be a disorder but it also has the potential to be a superpower and so we've renamed it very abol attention stimulus trait vast via st and. I think it's a whole lot better to be told that your son or daughter or you have vast because it does imply the vast nature of this condition which is all encompassing and does not convey a sense of shame in pathology the way. Adhd does so and attention and stimulus of sort of the two key elements. you know. Our attention is always moving and so we have variable attention and then stimulus were always looking for high stimulation. we're always looking for something to pump. Up the volume. So variable attention. Stimulus trait vast. And we offer that as a way of for parents to convey to their kids they have avast mind. They have vast potential. They have vast opportunity all of which is true. And then the challenge to turn this. Trait asset is to learn to control attention stimulation so the first item in the book that we offer. That's new is the very word itself. Very term itself the acronym via st. I think it also brings us past what i think. Amy and i probably grew up with learning this term. Add and it's become this kind of major catchall for every range of behavior and then a lot of the discussions around are kind of like. Oh that's an. Add moment or everyone's medicating what used to be called childhood and those kind of discussions. That i think are not useful for anybody because they demonize kids who have maybe need help functioning and then they kind of lump everybody together in like this used to be childhood now. Everyone's just medicating zombies not true right. Not true at all and also as you say when it's used casually it's never complimentary exactly when you say he's so. Add he so creative original interesting and dynamic. You mean he's a pain in the butt you know and so you know we want to take it out of that stigmatized round where it does not deserve to be in. The fact of the matter is most of the people who are the game changers in this world have vast or adhd.

Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy
"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.

"I wanted to ask you about stand up again. If you don't mind know what i didn't tell you earlier is that i had no intention of going into comedy ever and i think the reason why landed in an is probably because my face betrays me my facial expressions are much larger than i intend for them to be right. Which apparently is funny. The what you're saying. Amy poehler said she has that too like she came out on stage as like juliet or something and everyone was just dying laughing. And you have that too. It's a rare thing where you come on screen or on stage. Whatever people just like love you thank you. Amy and that's something that you can't learn you can't teach that it's kind of out of your hands. I have a really hard time going on. Talk shows in the way. The podcast has been a relief for me. Because it's an element where it can control my own narrative but in general. I'm much more comfortable playing a character.

And we specifically help people with courses and coaches people selling online digitally their products or their services. And i've got a team of about twenty two people all over the us than we do. Both running the ads than also teaching how to do it in our in our other product. Twenty two people. Is that what you said. Yeah i've got twenty two employees and then a couple contractors that is impressive. I have about twenty as well and you're a lot younger than me. So i've been in business longer and it took me a long time to build up a team like that. I feel like you have grown so quickly so fast and like the best way possible. Would you agree. Yes and growing team is like and as you know twenty people it really pushes you to grow as an individual i share so yes does it. Humbly oh my goodness like if you wanna know all your fault as a leader in all the areas need to really strengthen go ahead and build the big team that will do it or you know yeah exactly going the teams the hardest thing i've ever done. That could be an imam. Okay hey manchester event. I hear ya okay. So we've got a lot to cover today and you have five of the most common mistakes that you see entrepreneurs make when they're growing their business with facebook ads now facebook. Ads is a hot topic with my audience. Whether it be my newbie students are going at it with their first launch and they might want to dabble with this book ads or those that are in their second third and beyond launch. That wanna go really really deep with ads and do a great job usually on their own to start out with and then they looked to an agency so i would love to dive into all of these mistakes. So why. don't you kick us off with mistake. Number one yeah so the first mistake is before you even get to the ads. Peace that so many people miss over whether you're of beginner and you've never run ads. But i've also talked to seven figure business owners who skip over this and continued to not do it because it's so easy to miss and that's not defining what success means for their marketing. So what that really looks like is. What's your budget and how much you're going to make from that budget and a lot of times people kinda pull out like i think spend thousand dollars in see what happens and what. I encourage in really want people to do it. Encourage you to do to get the most out of what you spend is say over the next. Let's say thirty days. I wanna make this many sales which equals this many dollars and then working backwards and deciding from that what your investment is because if you go into ads in your kind of just like picking a number and then seeing what happens what will happen is you'll start running ads in. You'll say things. Like i have no idea if this is working or not. I have no idea where to put my time in energy to get to work and then end up just turning your ads off in waiting. A few months in china have seen that play out so many times so before you even start ads weather. Like i said you're a beginner. You're intermediate your advanced. You need to go into it knowing this is exactly my budget is exactly my sales goals. So that when you start running ads you're able to kind of pick it apart in. See what isn't isn't working and you defined what that success is for yourself just like you've never tried to do something without maybe setting a goal of what that is like you say i wanna get healthy. What does that mean to you. Same with ads. If you wanna run ads what is a successful ad campaign. Look like for you and then it should be based on numbers. Okay so this is such a great place to start. Because i know what my students and my listeners are thinking right now especially if they've never ran ads they'll say okay me. I know how much money i wanna make with. Let's say my first digital course launch or even my second digital launch but they don't understand or know yet how much they should budget for ads. They're like well. How much is it going to cost me to get lead for my webinar. Like let's focus on that. That's the biggest reason why my students would be running ads. I know you can't get into every single number in detail. But what would you say to somebody. That's struggling with that. Yeah so let's walk through how we would how we would break this down. So i you decide that sales goal. So let's say you wanna make make it easy ten thousand dollars. You've got a thousand dollar course. You need to sell ten. So you have that number of those sales goals. Okay now you have to decide your after come up. With how many leads you need into your web. In our in order to get those ten sales so for simplicity sake the average conversion is like one to five percent of all of your leads in. It's going to depend on your audience and the price of your offer. Let's just say three percent of people that sign up for your webinar. The total registrants are going to buy that course so you need ten sales and three percent are going to buy than what would be that total number of leads and i can't do math really fast but i mean what are you whatever that equals i think it would be like one percent is three hundred leads so we will need hundred leads. I think that's right so there once you have your leads. Then what's your cost per lead and an average cost lead for a webinar is anywhere from like four to ten dollars and again it depends on your industry when you're targeting consumers you usually have a cheaper cost per lead where if you're targeting business owners usually pay a little bit more because it's just a more saturated ad space so let's say five dollars you multi that let's say we need a hundred leads. Okay your ad spends five hundred dollars and that's how you break it down and get there. Okay i'm glad that you walk through this in the way that you did. I think my listeners really wanted some concrete data and like a formula to us. So i think that was really helpful so i appreciate you taking the time to really drill. That went down. Yeah perfect all right so move us on to mistake number two okay. The second mistake that many people make is they. Don't do enough testing especially of your ad creative so your copy your images maybe test video and in my opinion when i see someone saying that their ads aren't working eighty five ninety percent of the time. It's the messaging because it takes a lot of work to really understand who your ideal customer is and how to speak to them and how to stand out in the feed especially this year. It's just gotten even more important to go deeper to take it to the next level with talking to your ideal customers fears and their dreams and where they're struggling right now and so a lot people mostly because ads can be a lot of work. But i encourage you to take the extra week if you need you know as you get ready for adds to have at least three versions of your ad that you're testing. Maybe it's a long form of copy in a short form of copy and then you have a video an image. Because i'll get this question all the time. People's will what works better video or image or what works better long or short and it i there is no concrete answer because it's truly different for every audience. A lotta times. I do see video work better than in some cases i see a static image with no tax work better for somebody so the more testing you can do and the more deep you can go with your messaging to stand out the better. Your results will be and like i said truly eighty five ninety percent of time when your ads are hitting that cost per lead goal or they're too expensive or they're not converting it's because of your messaging because as you know amy like so many years it takes so much time to really truly know your customer but the person who knows them the most and can talk to them. The best in the feed will always

Will Cancel Culture Come for Us All?
"You heard representative. Jim jordan of ohio. Say this week as the house debated whether to impeach the president many of these republicans are calling it cancel culture. This has been a controversial topic. But we're going to dive in quality assurance where we take a second look at a big tech story in the news. Last march futurist. Amy webb predicted that cancel culture and the backlash to it would become an even bigger deal in the year ahead said now that's proving true in more ways than she even expected in the aftermath of the attack on the capital. Eric trump Very publicly proclaimed that his family. You know we're being cancelled and it's interesting to see the push pull the tension between those seeking to cancel others. Those complaining that they themselves have been canceled. You know this is one of these situations where the technology enabling all of this is both megaphone and also the infrastructure and also the stop button so the question really is. Who's the ultimate arbiter. What are the rules. They're becoming less and less clear. How do we tease apart. The arguments about cancel culture that are kind of specious and the real behavior. That is behind it right. So here's the predicament. There's a sort of glomming on when you feel like you agree with somebody. The instruments of technology of made that really easy i mean. Let's think back a few months ago when everybody was posting a black square on their instagram accounts. Away of signaling. Their discontent corporations were doing that too. That has translated to real world. Cancellations i mean we have started to see corporate denials of service ranging from aws kicking parlor off to facebook and twitter and more recently youtube silencing. Donald trump's accounts and that for some has social consequences but for other that has real world business consequences. And we're in the situation where we are both inventing the rules and playing the game at the same time. is there confusion. Do you think because there are many people who say particularly. Let's say like on black twitter that there was never a mechanism to address problems. Before and that you know what came to be seen as cancel. Culture was really almost like collective bargaining happening on twitter. It was a whole bunch of people who could like you said express the same opinion and get a result when they never could have before well. The lifeblood of cancel culture is dopamine right. It's the hit that we get from. Feeling like we're a part of a movement and you can see that visualized in metrics. There are some easy fixes to this. We're not gonna fix our culture overnight. The actual problems that we are having we can totally address the mechanisms that are helping to fan the flames twitter could take away metrics so the general public no longer sees the number of times something has been re tweeted or liked maybe you as the original poster could see that but others cannot. That's one way to reduce that dopamine head to reduce the sensation that we are feeling the sense of urgency. 'cause urgency is also part of cancel culture and the same could happen on facebook. There are addressable problems here. you know. There's an argument to be made. That cancelling cancel culture gives rise to additional cancel culture right. it's it becomes as vicious cycle. I mean that's what we're seeing right now with eric trump and the remarks that he's making about cancel culture and and specifically with regard to his dad. You know. i think that's where some of the resentment comes in. I do think that around the time of the metoo movement what has come to be called cancel. Culture right was an exercise in power by people who traditionally have not had power and that that was part of the democratizing effective social media that a lot of people could say the same thing all at once about a misbehaving man or white supremacy and get a result. And that's the tricky. That's the tricky side of us right. Because arguably the net effect of that movement did real good in society and so cancelling the mechanisms that would have led to. That may not be the best for our longer terms but the flip side is that we wind up in the situation that we're in now and if you stop for a moment and think about the words. The semantics cancel culture is alliterative. It's easy to remember. It's an active verb and it itself is conceptually easy for people to understand whereas dachshund or something else may not be right. 'cause cancel culture was a more positive reframing in some ways of targeted harassment which i think we have to be honest about. That has been the mechanism of the far-right online. And you know it's like cancel. Culture was the leftist rebrand That's you know. I hadn't thought about that before but you're absolutely right and i think that that is some of the that is currently being made by those on the far right which is that they themselves now are being targeted and harassed and listen. I'm a target of some of that. Hate and as much as it pains me to say this. They do have a point. Cancel culture impacts them through targeted attacks the same way that they are targeting others. The solution to all of this would be for somebody to come out to the playground. Blow the whistle and tell us all to settle down. We're going to get detention by that. I mean leadership which we have had very little of over the past few years.

Author Melissa Albert Returns
"Back. We talked three years ago when you were a debut author with a little book called. The hazelwood obviously came out. Hit the best. The new york times bestseller lists so kind of reflect back on that. What was that like to have. You know this first time out this book that had kind of been ruminating in your head for song. Come out and be embraced By large number of people. Yeah okay it was a trip obviously I think when i wrote the book i had the sense that it was very specifically geared toward my own. Kind of odd obsessions like. I had this idea that. I wanted to kind of shove. It full of all of the weird little rabbit hole interests that i have all the like old magic then kind of references to books. I loved as a kid. All that stuff. And i think that i assume that we kind of boil down to something pretty specific so to see it. Get a broader. Thon was so exciting. Absolutely it was headed for sure but but wonderful. And what does that like. Because i'm sure like you know. We talked during your first as we talked about like the books. That broke with from babysitters club to wheezy batson chronicles of narnia. And things like that and a lot of those were. Obviously you know popular books but the have kind of just these little niche kind of books little things little details little fantasy aspects. Did you were kind of into two then kind of does it feel like what's the word i'm looking for that you're kind of it's validating in that. Oh my little like obsessions growing up our other people's obsessions too. I think really. It really was feeling i've gotten as i've gotten older and as i have talked to more bookish people particularly bookish women i think there's this there's this common thread among people who become writers or maybe one anybody who's been adolescent that they had this sense of being like the kid alone at the lunch table regardless of how literally true that was which in my case it was quite literally true and a lot of a lot of times in my life. there's that sense of like. Oh my god. I thought i was so alone but all across the world in every lunch room there was a kid alone pouring themselves into a book and now i'm kind of built now and i can look back affectionately at this earlier version of myself and i can feel like wow. There's this whole group of people who kind of had the same experience and now we can find each other. Because i'm lucky enough to kind of be plugged into this this bush community. Now so it's it's it is validating it is comforting. And it's always gives me that feeling of like oh i wish i i wish i could've known how comforting this would have been And touch that like dorner. i talk. We talked a lot about like the books. Were into growing up. But when it comes to like you as an adolescent you kind of touching on just now what type of kid what type of teenager where you into like outside of books that you read like what we're obsessions interests when you're a young person so when i was a kid i need to kind of feel like oregon stop books. I can't think i would. Not i was not a spotty kid. Wasn't nature kid. I was definitely I have a really dear friend. My best friend amy. She's been my best friend for almost my entire life. She's like a sister and she was an outdoor kid. I got really lucky that i kind of the universe paired up with the best friend. Who's very different from me. She dragon books but in general. She's not like such a big kind of fantasy person as i am She you can outdoor kid. She physical kid She got me out of out of the house out of my own skin and that really helped but aside from kind of her dragging me kicking and screaming into nature which. I grew to love I was really very interior kid. Especially outside of my own house right like i was with my family but a little bit more closed and shy outside of that and then i kinda came into myself as a teenager when i started to embrace You know you have that thing in grade school where you feel like that safety numbers thing and kind of try to flatten out your weird edges to fit in and then in high. You're like oh wait like not fitting in hats. That's what's cool. So i started being able to embrace my own oddities high school and that was absolutely road. Integrator happy deaf. Do you think you know where we've been locked down half of these many months. Do you think if you had to have gone through this. As a young person you would have been okay. You know. I think about that a lot in the early days. I absolutely believe that i would love that. That i would've been happy in my little kingdom of books and hanging out with my mom i think ultimately it would've been really bad really. It would have played into my Natural useful tendencies toward you. Know deadly introspection and Yeah i don't think that would have been good. It was definitely a shock to my system to be forced among my peers and forced to find my way but it was ultimately an arduous journey. That helped me. Be a functioning. You an introvert. Who can function when needed an extrovert. Who can take joy in other people. How 'bout you do you feel. How would you have done
How To Get on Podcasts as a Guest
"One of the most free questions. I get asked about podcasting is how do i get on other podcasts as guest and its frequent for good reason because people know that podcasts are powerful way to market themselves to get out there to be known. Nobody wants to be ignored. But how do you get on a podcast. You just use cold outreach. Do spam people in their inboxes. Asking to be on their podcast. What is the most effective way to regularly show up on other podcasts. Well i'm going to tell you share with you my system so you can lineup guest appearances for the rest of the year. First of all. I want to address something. That's very very important. One of the things. We all have to come to terms with no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial. Journey is understanding. Why you should be on a podcast. Not talking about the benefits here. i'm talking about. Why would a podcast host. Won't you on their show. You have to honestly answer that question for example. Take a look at some of the bigger podcasts. Out there W f by marc maron. Joe rogan the jordan. Harbinger your show. Why is elon. Musk being interviewed by. Joe rogan. Why did richard bring it on the dribble. your show. Why did president. Braga obama get on w. f. with marc maron. How did that happen. That cold email. joe rogan. No probably the other way around right so the first thing we have establish is the more value can add to an audience. The more likely it's going to be that you're going to show up on that podcast. Let me say that again. The more value you can add to an audience the more likely you will be a guest on that podcast so elon. Musk shows up on. Joe rogan because joe rogan knows. His audience wants to hear from him. He sought after the something here. There's something that he can offer. That makes it worth him trying to get him on the show. One of my favorite podcast interviews is with jamie fox on the tim. Ferriss show and tim for a shares that it took him years to get to the point where he knew jamie foxx enough to convince him to get on his podcast. He had to put a lot of work in a lot of time. A lot of sacrifice a lot of investment and. I'll talk a little bit about how he actually got jamie fox at the end and how relates to today's lesson. Why did tim ferriss go through. All that effort will because he knew the jamie foxx would be a brilliant episode who share incredible stories. He has a lot of value to add. So i want you to start thinking in that way. Yes we all are not jamie fox or president barack obama but we can add value to an audience and we could start somewhere we will have to start with the can show right. We can start with smaller podcast with audiences that are more niche that can really benefit from what we can offer but a lot of us get disappointed that. Hey i'm reaching out these podcasts. And they're not getting back to me. I can really offer a lot of value. Omar will one of the reasons why they're not getting back to us because they just never heard of you or they don't really have any kind of rough of what you can deliver so we're going to solve this problem immediately. One of the best ways to get on a podcast. If your brand new is to be noteworthy that means you have to show people that you can deliver for example if somebody wanted to get on a podcast and they just reached out by email and said hey podcast. I'm an expert at seo. I think i'd be really valuable to your audience versus somebody who says hey. I'd love for you to have me on your show an seo expert. I should talk about how. Google has become the dominant search engine and y. Here's a link to that ted talk hoover's opening the email whoever's reading the email whether it's the host or the executive system that works for the host. They have a lot more mature work with now. They have a reason to say. Yes they have a ted talk to watch and say. Wow this person's credible they really delivered Enough people in that room were willing to listen to this person. He commanded an audience. Might be worth having on the podcast so you have to really give them something to say. Yes. this is why your own content is really really important until you have a few great interviews under your belt where you can share those in your pitches then you need to shoot something else whether it's a youtube video whether it's a bestselling book up performance onstage. Give something to. The decision is easy. It's an easy s now. Our which is one of the ways you can do. This is one of the strategies. I used in the beginning where i literally would go to the pages of all the podcasts. I wanted to go on. I emailed them and Ask them to be on. And i gave him some materials to kind of look through to know that. I'm legit but a more effective way is what's called a warm introduction. Introductions are one of the best ways to get on podcast and it's the fastest way to get a. yes now. there's a few things you can do. Let's start with one of the easiest step step number one is do you know anybody. That's been on amy podcasts. As a guest. Look at all your friends on facebook on social your emails. Is there anybody in your network. That's been on a podcast guest. That knows that can vouch for you if so ask that person. Hey can you introduce me to that. Podcast you're on. A warm introduction is an easy way for them to say. Hey that gas was good and the recommending somebody. There's a good chance that somebody is going to be worth my time. This is why. I really emphasize the importance of building. Your personal network making friends in your industry because you can always help each other out vouch for each other and remember. I talked about how a lot of just don't know who you are. The more you network the more. You're well known. There are so many people. I know that are so good at networking yet. They don't have a best selling book. They are not a social media phenomenon. But if i say their name people know they are because they are great at networking. They're great at making friends in their space and people like that will never starve because they can always find opportunities because they know somebody. So get a warm introductions one of the best ways to get on podcast. Next piece of advice is your aim. Should be trying to get on five. Podcasts doesn't matter the size of the audience or how newer old the podcasts. Is you wanna get some rips. You wanna really understand the process and you want to deliver. Will you wanna do in those first. Five is be the absolute guest that podcast has ever had. I'm talking about study. This podcast study everybody. Who's in your niche or have spoken about the topics that you might talk about in the interview or in the podcast episode and cover things that haven't been covered address issues. Problems challenges that other people haven't addressed on the podcast before you want to be the most guests they've ever had you want to be the jamie foxx episode. Okay why because this is how you're gonna viral market yourself if you knock it out of the park. And you're the best episode for each of these. Podcasts podcasters listen to other podcasts. And the here episode the blake. I gotta get this person on my show and that really worked for me. I work super hard on making sure. I nail my first interviews. That i crush it that i really deliver value. It's my only goal. I'm not trying to promote products and services if the host talks about my websites or my products. That's great. that's fine. But i don't even mention the asking. That question is are any way people can reach out to you. I give out my e mail or give out my twitter handle and try to get the conversation to continue on those mediums. The point here is that you just got to really nail. This not only will help you with the viral marketing of a. But it's a great set of interviews that you can use as samples of your work when you reach out to other podcast to be a guest on. My next tip is make a list. Make a list of all the podcasts. You want to be on. And it's okay if you shoot for the stars and he may even wanna work to that list so like number. One is joe rogan number two. Is tim ferriss. Show whatever just you know naming names here. But you have your favorite podcasts or the best podcasts you want to be on and work your way down. you know. it's okay if that list is one hundred. Two hundred three hundred podcasts. And see as you know a a bucket list you know. I wanna cross these off. And i want to get through all the podcasts as much as possible. And don't forget new. Podcasts are being launched all the time. so you're gonna want to update this list but the list is great to have so you can track your progress and is literally just a spreadsheet on google sheets. You know the podcast name. The podcast host The link to the podcast. And then i actually have a column or linked to my episode. Once i'm on it when you're starting out on another quick tip. I have to say this. But i've noticed some people don't do this but when you're starting out when you're trying to get on other podcasts. Dopey a prima donna. Okay don't be too precious. A lot of people. Don't want to fill out forms. They wanna do pre interviews. They don't wanna do the initial chant. Sometimes they think well this established business successful This is beneath me and this podcast is not popular anyway. Why should i do this. Well you should do it because if you wanna get on the show. That's what needs to be done. There's no room for pride here. You want to get on the podcast. Go through the format. It's good for you helps you prepare helps you do your best when it's time to actually be on the podcast and you're on the road of the actual episode. You gotta earn your stripes. You might be successful in your own area in your own business. But you're entering a new world podcasting and you're nobody here. I don't want to speak on your behalf but if you're a beginner you are still earning your stripes. You're still proving yourself as good guest as a gray guesses a valuable guests so run through the steps in the is as needed. And sometimes you're going to have to do all these kinds of hoops and prepare and schedule months in advance before the episode of airs. The better podcasts. Actually you know. Have a pretty long lead time. Some of the bigger podcasts. I i've been on. They had four five six months of lead time. But as you know time flies so put in the work now so you can reap the benefits later.

"amy i" Discussed on The Goal Digger Podcast
"You know I have never been asked this question. So I'm glad we're talking about this when the pandemic hit I was confused like what is going on what is this and how serious do I need to take this and then quickly I realized wait a second my students, my audience they are nervous they are confused they are looking to me to figure out what do I do in the number one question that came up is am I allowed to. Sell during this time like what the heck do I do, and for some reason Mrs, probably the leadership in me I felt called to be a voice during this time and I wanted to show what I was teaching. So what it meant for me is I literally rose to the occasion and I said okay. Here's what I think. We all should do we should continue to sell. We should continue to look at our offers and see how we need to. Pivot it in order to show up for the people that were serving right now, and we should not be quiet. We should not back down. We should not ignore what's going on and so I had to be an example of that. So I literally launched a membership during that. Literally the week that everybody was sent home during the very beginning of the pandemic and so I- navigated my way through that it was awkward very scary but it was so. Important to show what I wanted my students to do, and then from there I started showing up in talking about how to pivot, how to show up for your audience and how to be a beacon during a time where people were very very scared and it literally made me a better leader because I was leading during uncertain times I had never done that before. So I'm really glad that I felt called to that because I think it's made me better. Yeah. Some things never change amy I was listening to your podcasts. been listening when you're talking about like guys like not selling is not an option not in. That you had a lot of foresight to understand like this isn't as temporary as were making it out to be, and this is something that we've got to adjust to in one of the most beautiful things in the ways that you showed up was like you're like, you can still launch. You just need to be very cognizant of the language and the way that you're showing up and the way that you're selling and I just thought it was beautiful because it's like you can keep on with your plan. Let's just pivoted slightly to make sure that it fits the climate that we're all in and I was like Amen A. Vaccari. So. What big pivots have you personally made in your career because your career is over a decade that have just felt like you were jumping into uncertainty I feel like we all have these hill moments were like, what am I doing? Is this the best thing or the worst thing I've ever done? Do you have anything that stands out for you? Yes. Okay. So I love the US the question like over the span of my career because one of the first big pivots I made was moving from one topic to another and I think this is important to talk about because a lot of people will start to get into their business growing in online business and they'll get to a point..
"amy i" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Something I've been paying close attention to how much campaigning has changed since the beginning of this pandemic. Wasn't that long ago that we were making our way through the Democratic primary packed into town halls, followed campaign buses across his and highways and watched candidates, meet-and-greet voters in restaurants and state fairs. While some of these events can seem a little superficial. They also serve as a way to demonstrate momentum and excitement. Zoom rallies just don't have that same feel. Today we're just two and a half months away from election, and it doesn't feel like there's going to be a way for campaigns and candidates to returned business as usual. That's especially true when it comes to the time honored tradition of door-to-door campaigning. Campaigns rely on these efforts to hear directly from voters. The covid nineteen seems to have made that impossible. Well, not for everyone. Americans for prosperity, a conservative organization founded by David Coke is knocking on doors and swing states in support of Republicans running in Senate and congressional races. I spoke with AF P., President Tim Phillips about their efforts, dozens of groups out there doing TV ads, digital ads, radio ADS. There's almost no grassroots involvement person to person so Americans for Prosperity Action. That's what we focus on door to door individualized texting efforts as well. Telephone efforts from local people not some foam bank in in eight hundred center of thousand miles away. But local folks, and our goal is to reach swing voters. The folks who we believe based on our data analysis are genuinely up for grabs in this election on these individual Senate candidates that we're supporting or at the house level. The congressional level you know you think at a moment where we're in a pandemic where person to person contact now can be seen as so dangerous. You're saying that your volunteers are being that people are opening their doors and not saying, Hey, this is too dangerous. I. Don't feel comfortable doing. We wondered what the response would be. We began carefully testing back in early June. And now we're at full all in with both activists and staff at the doors I've probably knocked on I bet over the last nine weeks probably thirty, four, thirty, five, hundred doors I'm guessing swing voters I may have had I don't know maybe three to five or six refusals based on filling uncomfortable. We follow all social distancing guidelines. Frankly that's very easy to do on door to door. It's easier than almost any other easier than going to Walmart because it's easy to ring the doorbell step back six to eight feet onto the sidewalk and we train our people that so. When someone comes and looks through the peephole or through the glass, you know the see us standing back. Sometimes, it depends on the state. Sometimes, we have a mask on sometimes we have at our hand in case they would rather if accountable with that and as you also mentioned, you're one of the rare groups that's out there doing this. I, was just reading something from. Reuters. About a liberal group called Progressive Turnout Project that suspended its came at saying effort citing a rise in corona virus cases and that there were also complaints from their field staffers saying they felt unsafe. So. Talk to us a little bit about the people that you employ to go door to door and concerns about safety. We ask them up front if they have any concerns or issues, and we offer for them to be able to do telephones because we have you know from home or from field office, they can choose where they want to make the call. So we give them options to still be able to make a difference because people typically. Are In our line of work because they want to make a difference and so we offer them the ability to make calls So they can they can help or to ride out individualized postcards to swing voters with notes that are handwritten notes about why we're supporting our particular candidate and I can tell you at the doors the vast majority I mean, literally ninety nine percent do feel comfortable I think Americans are looking for practical safe ways. To do what is the number one issue when people ask me you've been a of doors what's number one issue politically this year. It's this, how do I get my normal life back but still being safe and defeating this pandemic while also realize that shutdowns having enormous consequences with the increases in deaths of despair that every state is showing at this point from suicide drug overdoses. Recognizing their frankly tough consequences as well to shutdowns. Do you think other groups that are like yours political groups who are out there trying to get their message out to voters are making a mistake by doing it virtually by just doing this through text and phone and zoom? I think every group should do what they think is best. So I would never fill the ability give someone else advice I I know what's wrong right? There's something clearly that you see as you could be doing this right now through text zoom and all, but you but you all choose to go door to door. So. There must be something even before the pandemic. Our polling and focus groups showed us. That Americans were feeling more isolated, and now that we're independent deep into those, those numbers are higher. and. So I do think there is significant benefit. To being able having conversations. That are ya bit more intimate while still being socially distance obviously, we do see value in that. Are Voters. Now, do they want to talk more than they did say in two, thousand, eighteen, twenty sixteen like engage longer in conversations. We do find elevated levels of what we call completions, people who opened the door, and actually you know talk through the questions and answer the questions and have a conversation. Here's what's happening that at least from what I'm seeing these swing voters. They feel profoundly impacted in a deeply personal way by the pandemic. The resultant economic crisis and also by the racial justice and because civil upheaval that we're seeing across the country people in the middle or different, they are not viewing those three happenings through an ideological lens. Now, although they've got to find out way on my kids going to school next week or not a can I go visit my my elderly mom who is living in assisted care center in amy they're more fluid than I've ever seen him. On who they could vote for yes. Yes. There's a view out there that this is a base election at everybody has an opinion of trump or the Republicans or the Democrats, and by the way I think that's true I think almost everyone does have an opinion. But now more than I have seen it in my career. These folks these voters in the middle there fluid that they fill profoundly impacted by all that's happening. They're paying more attention for a sustained period of time more than they ever have at least in my lifetime. And? They do not yet know. How we're doing, they haven't decided yet who's doing a good job who's doing a bad job through this are things looking better. They haven't decided that yet, and so for that reason, they're fluid because the issue in this election I believe is not any one issue. Instead, it's a broader macro level question and it's how do I get my normal life back and which of these candidates out there whether it's for president or down ballot gives me the best chance to get my normal life back. Well, Tim Phillips I really appreciate you taking the time out of. Knocking to come and chat with me. Absolutely. Hope you'll come with amy I. Hope you'll come to see this at some point for yourself. Tim Phillips is the president of Americans for prosperity..

She's hilarious. She's very funny I just want to point out that I talked to our guest. Amy Schumer before all of the chaos and. Emotional horrors, and convulsions that that followed the killing of George Floyd, and we are in the midst of intense racial division right now and anger and We're also that butted up against covert nineteen, and so we find ourselves in these very serious times, but I had this conversation with Amy Schumer who I love, and she's just hilarious and delightful, and we had this conversation before any. Of of the upheavals of the last week, so I wanted to make sure that we explained that to people and so I know there are a lot of us out there a lot of you out there that. Would or could use some laughter and could use some silliness, and that is what that interview provides, but I also wanted to be completely honest and say that We're taping this segment now. the heels of every thing that's happened over the last couple of days so. How are you guys doing, Sona, how are you? I'm okay I'm yeah. No, it's funny. No one's good. I ran into I saw friend of mine. This woman and I said. How are you and she said? I'm good and she had her mask on, and this is you know two or three days into the riots over George fluids killing, and she said I'm good. And then she just stopped in her tracks, and she turned to me, and she said I lied. I'm not good and I was like I know. It's a reflects to say I'm good. I'm I'm guessing you feel the same way. Matt Yeah I think so I'm sad. It's a sad time for our country in the people at the core of this struggler justice for George. Floyd black lives. They're like the best of the country right now so I'm trying to take some inspiration from it and. Let, it pushed me into something and to do something. I heart goes out to all of the people suffering yeah. Well we have this making comedy at this. Moment is a strange thing. It's a strange task and and at the same time I do think people should hear Amy Schumer be really funny, an awesome, and then after that. Maybe we can talk about. Where we are the end of the season. Does that sound like a plan all right? So when I was going to do it, whatever you, no matter what you said, plow ahead. Okay, just being A.

Been Sent Atta identify. Does does being on an island. Add to the weirdness of the quarantine I think you're right I think it does I hadn't thought about that, but it's all very weird, and it's also weird to go from New York where I I mean Manhattan where I think they were like estimating twenty percent of everyone was going to have it or something like that right right and then come somewhere where there's been twenty. Twenty nine cases total but I think people are more afraid here than they were in Manhattan. which is you know So you know people were really freaking out here and we're like okay, but we're. You know we've been here for a couple months now, but we're like we just came from where it's really everywhere, but here it's like people walking around lake in like a hamster like humans hamster wheel.

In a cool way like with a cool vibe, but I wanted to respect the stay in your car..

S. imports less than ten percent of our toilet paper if we got most of our supply from overseas then you might understand the run on toilet paper but he said about one hundred fifty U. S. companies make the stuff there's no shortage of toilet paper just temporarily bare shelves the shelves would be restocked probably Monday and also also you have this business with that said the hand sanitizer they've been telling us for years the hand sanitizer is better than soap and water because open water can't kill germs now they're telling us exactly the opposite exactly the opposite use the hand sanitizer only if you don't have soap and water and if you don't have soap and water maybe you should go out and buy some of that it's a fifty five it KLIF traffic.

B. twenty eight hundred the next week she assumed that there was more than that chance of taking into consideration and there are a lot of cases that have not been reported a lot of cases that have not been discovered and confirm that all that stuff and yeah yeah but the point of it is that it's it doesn't matter if the numbers are off a little bit that doesn't affect the the the the what is the word I'm looking for it doesn't affect the nature of the statistics and the M. the projections she says we're looking at about a million U. S. cases by the end of April second two million by may four million by may eleventh may fifth and so on she says the exponentials are hard to grasp but this is how they work and she says bottom line on this is in the US we have about two point eight hospital beds for every one thousand people with a population of three hundred thirty million people this is one million possible hospital beds at any given time sixty five percent of those beds are already in use that leaves about three hundred thirty thousand beds available nation wide bottom line they will all be filled by may fifth yeah and I brought this up a little earlier too is it not everyone's gonna stay in those bags and not everyone's going to go to the hospital no but there are enough people coming in behind them waiting for the beds as there is the point and you know I think it really bears repeating that there is no implication here that everybody's done they're going to be any greater deaths risk right or anything like that but you can continue to to go down this line and see how one thing affects another she says as health care systems become increasingly burdened that includes prescription shortages as Scott pointed out it's not you know there's no no specific prescription for people with corona virus but certainly for the symptoms we'll take the same pills for for for the cold and flu and so forth again ever you're never gonna have shortages of those and beds we've got masks she's goes into the numbers about masks and of the people who work in health care themselves and how they're gonna be falling by the wayside so it could be a very serious problem and this is why countries like Italy and basically just shut down right Italy or are they locked up the entire country nobody goes in and out not yet literally yesterday was we were saying twenty five percent of the country was stuck now it's everybody unless you have to travel for work or an emergency that literally what they're saying is the right decision is to stay home the future of Italy is in our hands we've got to be more responsible today than ever then they have to say in the way that they have to they have to you know to trust people to take take care of themselves and their families and to be do the responsible thing as far as society is concerned and by the way just go back to Liz Specht.

"You can kick start the momentum of people that go through it's in the probe that it's easy and the con is you can actually get more dollars and cents for that like between one hundred or two hundred dollars the other spotlight course we're talking micro niche this. This is a deeper dive step-by-step the pro. You get real specific. You're the go to source the con- you might get pigeonholed but amy I did make a note here because your success story here. You're kind of pigeonholed for a little bit as the FBI ads girl in you made the transition also can you just real quick talk about that yes so. I was known forever forever as a facebook marketing expert and then I drill down on facebook ads with the spotlight course facebook ads insider and I started to be known for the IT facebook ads person and then in that made me great money and put me on the map and it got me out there and so I would never change it for the world but after a while I I started creating courses and I wanted to teach created courses. I started doing webinars with huge success. I wanted to teach it so what I did is over time. I made that pivot and here's here's something I'm glad you brought this up. It's not like I woke up one morning and I'm like I'm GonNa make this pivot and then I made a big fanfare online everybody. I'm changing my business. I want want you all to know why and here's what's going to happen. I really tell my students. Let's not do that. Let's just start to pivot our content over time <hes> expand and our messaging start telling new stories start teaching new content and over time things start to move in the direction you want them to go. I really do believe if they followed holid- you this long. Let's ease them into this next thing instead of making total total jarring change that typically works really well. It's exactly what I did now. I'm I'm not even known for facebook. Marketing love that in one thing fire nation that we talked about was the workshop your maximum about one hundred the start of course you're going to be between one hundred the two hundred where are we at dollars and cents on the spotlight. Horse Amy Ooh. That's a great one so with the spotlight course usually I'll say somewhere between Wean two hundred two probably five hundred so anywhere between about two hundred and five hundred is typically what you're GonNa see for a spotlight course you. You could go higher but that's typically the average. The signature course is next. We're talking total transformation and fire nation..

"I say no to a lot of stuff way more than I say, yes. But guess what that means? That means that I have consistent revenue coming in. That means I've been able to grow my business to multi millions over the last few years. And it also means that I get a lot more time with my husband, and my son and my dog, and I really get to call the shots. I ventured out into this online world to create an online business because I didn't wanna boss anymore. I didn't want someone telling me what to do or went to do it. And so having a digital core. Business allows me to be the boss my own boss. Call the shots and also again not pill pulled pulled in a few different directions. I think that's the one thing. I really wanted to get away from furnish. And one of my big takeaways here less is more. I mean think about these. Numbers at Amy sharing ninety percent of her revenue comes from these three courses soon to be two and guess what? She's great at all of those three things her team is able to become great at all those three things because that's what their focus is there following that. One course until success. Guess what? Her adspend is not getting out of control because he's not doing ten other things while the ads are running and nobody's paying attention to them. They know their numbers in side out because this is what they do. This is where ninety nine zero of her revenue comes from an chinos those numbers, so Amy I wanna cut to the chase. Because so many people struggle when it comes to creating digital courses you've created three great ones that have brought you multiple millions of dollars per year. But what are some of the struggles that people have creating digital courses? One of the biggest ones that pops up is what if my ideas and good enough. What if I spend all this time effort and money creating? Digital course. And then I put it out into the world, and no buddy buys it. And here's the thing back in the day. When until you a quick story when I first came on the scene, I knew like from day one when I left Tony Robbins. I knew I wanted to create digital.
