How to Generate a Weekly Flow of Inbound Client Leads with Tom Poland

"Tom. What's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know. Who was that fire nation? Some, that's kind of interesting. The most people don't know is that in September. Two Thousand Sixteen I had a brain hemorrhage and fifty percent of the people had this particular type of brain damage die. And there's another forty one percent that apparently brain damaged and I had three the suck us over ten days. I survived a thriving y that is something I definitely did not know in you are thriving Tom and fire nation. That's exactly why we brought him on the Mike today because as I shared during the intro in talk about generating a weekly flow of inbound new clients leads in. Tom, you've written a trilogy of bestsellers on lead. Zoology. So let's start with you sharing the benefits of Liza algae. Best Way I can do that is paint a picture. So let's let's the picture what changes in your life when someone puts this place is pretty simple. Let's let's take. Let's take Monday morning you wake up you sipping coffee, you open your laptop. Tablet using. And you see. Bookings that have come in from people who are highly qualified who WanNa know more about working with you. That's the scenario and you have message. You haven't had to follow the miles that had booked time to have a talk with you about becoming client, and when you have that meeting was not going to be convincing designing GONNA be confirming because they've already created pre motivated prequalified in terms working they just want us to tell them that it's the right thing to do. That's that's the outcome. That's the benefit of lead dodgy I mean fire nation that's the dream I. Mean You WanNa create a business you want To create a system, you want to have the tools in place where you're waking up and having qualified people that want to know more about you, the one Qassim, your content that want to work with you, and now you've made quite a distinction Tom between marketing and selling. So I defined the two and then break down this distinction marketing is where we generally and selling us where we can better and as someone quite said, nothing happens in a business still selling salt until you've got a prospect and you converted. That person into a Klein and they pay some money we don't have anything we we can't do anything. We can't do our research development county supplies we got by a south. So true nothing happens in a business something sold, but nothing is sold until leads generated. So lead Gen is at the point of the pointy end of any business if you're not generating leads and if you don't have predictive control of the generation of not only the quantity of the caller slates, then you future is blitz. That's is precarious. To say the least. So let's make that distinction between marketing and selling. I mean you just went ahead and kind of define the to what the differences are. But what exactly do you want to make sure fire nation gets when it comes to their marketing and then when it comes to their selling like what's that process look like? So what don't want people to get is that essentially what Peter Drucker said the great management? Guru he said you know the goal of the goal of marketing is to make selling redundant. The way I said is that cell has what you have to do your marketing socks and I got my teeth selling life insurance as as a as a twenty one year old over four years ago I was selling life insurance I would make money morning and call people didn't WanNa. Hear from me. I had to be incredibly good selling because my marketing absolutely shocked. So. All the people go into the sows conversion courses in the south training courses and the whatever type of lettuce you know I'm twisting wise to close the Salad di. They all become redundant relevant. If you get ready your marketing because marketing is going to set it up. So that effective marketing, we'll set it up so that people want to actually work with you before you've actually spoken with him on at all and that that's the big distinction is at first of all inititally jet under control. Selling completely pointless. Now, under convert ride, you know leads coming to prospects and secondly when you get really good at marketing, you don't need to do and he's selling anyhow If if I've done the mocking right people aren't going to say to me well I to think about if I've done my marketing ride, people won't say Will County Florida done. My marketing ride people are going to be motivated and wanted to guys do consoles I have clients. is not about convincing because convincing selling it's about confirming because of done hopefully the marketing right in the first place.

Barr: 'I don't think that the law enforcement system is systemically racist'

"The Attorney General William Barr denied there was systematic racism in US law enforcement racism in the United States still but I don't think that the law enforcement system is systemically racist I understand that the distrust however of the African American community given the history in this country since the nineteen sixties I think we've independent phase of reforming our institutions and making sure that they're in sync with our laws so how then to continue to reform the U. S. police Chuck Wexler has been trying to do that for years he's a former senior policemen in Boston and is now the executive director of the police executive research forum the first awesome warrior policemen in Minneapolis had to use such forceful tactics against the unarmed George Floyd it was not necessary it was a complete police failure the Minneapolis police that day failed George Floyd there was nothing to justify their actions nothing zero it's horrible from a professional policing standpoint that video represents everything we are opposed to that is not what professional policing looks like it is apparent one of those of us outside then we think well given what happened and the reaction to it and the legal moves we would think the police would be extra vigilant but we then saw the seventy five year old man knocked to the ground and no police helping him and then when charges were pressed the rest of the force resigned so how do we understand that that's wrong too what happened in buffalo what you're referring to that is wrong too I don't know what those officers were thinking I have no idea what they were thinking this is an older man pushing him it was completely uncalled for completely uncalled for these officers that resigned they should resign from the department that would be a good thing I don't know why they stop resigning from those positions they should just leave policing it they think that incident is worth resigning for they should resign from the department they are idiots you are working on police reform you've seen time and again questions being raised about both race and police brutality do you think this is a turning point I think what this is making everybody to is is take a hard look at what is good policing look like what people are asking why hasn't it happened before president Obama set up a task force on twenty first century policing why was that not implemented in US states has eighteen thousand police departments so policing is very uneven there's no quality control there's no national standards my organization the police executive research forum issued guidelines on use of force we have training on de escalation but how do you reach all of those departments and hard what kind of oversight you have so it's a challenge American policing is very decentralized it's very personal there's been attempts to try to consolidate regional allies doesn't happen so until we have an investment I think in training and holding officers accountable and the big look at our unionization unionization and United States plays a real role in making it hard to discipline problematic officers will be on the union problems you've been citing is it simply that it's simply the model is a very very brutal one well let's be let's be clear what use are in Minneapolis was a failure Erica now we see the pictures from New York we see Chicago we've seen lots of images from across the United States of the right of the police reacting very force we haven't there been challenge obviously but is there something about the the essence of the policing well I can't explain what happened in buffalo or some of these other cities and those offices need to be held accountable there's been some real steps taken to hold those officers accountable I don't think the level of violence we have seen in America as a result of the Minneapolis situation we haven't seen that in probably since the Vietnam era we're gonna have to take a hard look at some of our tactics and how we approach these things this other side of this issue too is that you even in these demonstrations you basically have three groups you help by large you have peaceful demonstrators then you have a smaller group but a very difficult group all they wanna do is cause destruction and are very difficult and sometimes violent you have had police officers who have had Molotov cocktails thrown at it who could stand up to big shot who have had brain damage in the hospital of brick so you have that group that's causing that then you have the third group looks you know in some cases in some cities you have looting so it's it has been a very strong vitriolic outcome and mostly those situations in many cities do not result of what you sorry and buffalo in the both the reminder yes again if one was needed to about how the African American community people of color suffer disproportionately in the criminal justice system is this going to concentrate minds now in a way that there will be this the kind of significant reform people have been calling for for a very long time race race is very important and you are right about the disproportionate number of African Americans in the criminal justice system and I think you know that that's been throughout the system whether it's you know the police or prosecutors or prisons of all of that Sir I I think the whole issue of race in the criminal justice system is huge and some attempts have been made to try to deal with that in policing as many police departments in this country now teach implicit bias many departments have body worn video camera so that when someone makes an allegation against them they can quickly review that and then traffic stops there's been concern the police make a disproportionate number of traffic stops involving African American so attempts have been made by police departments to try to honestly deal with the race issue in terms of recruitment trying to hire a diverse workforce all of those things are hiring recruitment promotion trying to promote African Americans but you know we're not there yet we have a lot more work to be done but I think it's also important to recognize that I don't think American police are in denial at that race is an issue five years ago there was an accusation that the police gauged in racial profiling and the police were into the aisle but I think I think what you've seen is a recognition that you need to recognize that race is an issue and that you know society as a whole has racial issues how can the police operate in a way that respects everybody's rights but that's just not enough you need to put in place accountability he'd need to refute body one camera video you need to have implicit bias training you need to be pushed to diversify your work force you need to reach out to the African American community so I think police rather than being in denial I think at least for the most part more the larger cities recognize the importance of dealing with

Top 10 Things If Your Kids are Under 10

"GONNA do the next couple of podcasts. We're going to kind of Do a little top ten And so so kind of walk us through. What's his first one this first podcast? We're going to do what we can talk about. So Do's and don'ts for parents ages one to ten or thankful to some of our listeners. Out there that have really been plugging in things that they wanna hear about a little bit more focus on Dad's a little bit more focused on legacy and data and so we're going to hit you. swear smack in the forehead on a couple of these and probably in the meantime hit ourselves with them as well so number one is. Don't be quick to reprimand or punish a child from minor. Grievances do have patients intolerance forgive as God has forgiven us. Show that love and model it. Okay so one so a number one. We're talking about this don't be. Don't be quick to reprimand or punish a child from minor grievances. Now we're not talking about just giving your child free licensed to do whatever they want right. That's not what we're saying here. No yeah definitely. Want to be hands on parenting. You know as we've talked about before in previous podcasts. Not like helicopter not micromanaging. But you know it's gotta be acquainted to the Child's development you give a really good roadmap to that Lance On our page and The the roadmap for ages kids throughout all the way up to adulthood so follow that. But what we're saying here. Is You know as they have development stages of development on obviously the older they get the proverbial Lease gets looser. But you gotTA protect a child. That's warriors of old not walking out on the street and get hit by a car because mom and Dad said sure. Do whatever you WANNA do. You have to use a sermon and some wisdom in the process of what? We're talking locker odd speaking for you Dante but for me. I know this was A lot of times not flying off the handle In in the moment when maybe the child did something or there is I heard. Hey something happened at school or whatever like that. It was like okay. Let's give the child the benefit of the doubt. Let's let's hear their side of the story and and just yet again that slow to speak slow to anger Bef- before understanding really. What's going on and I know there's been times in my life where I was. I was ready to explode on a child and then it turns out you know what the child did was actually admirable or they were in the right. They were just defending a friend or defending their what they believed in. And then it's like okay. Hey that that makes sense to me I you know. Maybe I'm really glad I didn't. I listened I and didn't let my mouth you know or or You know fly off the handle or something like that so I can definitely see how this would be applicable in that. So let me. I'll jump in our hit number two here Dante. So Number two don't don't show limited emotion In by that we mean don't don't hold back affection or don't You know base our affection or that emotion based based on on a child's Efforts or or something that we may approve of Or a child's behavior support so going back to number one if the child is misbehaving or something like that that doesn't mean we withhold love and affection from our child is way of punishment so we forbid if God was with us like that and it was conditional love because God every every day. Okay not that you woke up and now I'm just GonNa you know that was the case. So this what we're talking. We're really this again. We talked about this. We hammered on this with marriage to But this is that unconditional. Love is saying that even though if the child disappoints us or or or their grades are down or whatever. It doesn't mean we stop showing them love and affection. We make that very clear you know and I I made A. I made it clear with my kids when we were disciplined him. The say listen I love you? You know I but but I have to discipline you. There's consequences for what you did But I do love you and then has nothing to do with. It doesn't change my love for you by having to do discipline you or ground you or whatever may be But I think that's what it is just letting the child know. Our love is in contingent upon their behavior. Their grades or some sort of effort based a metric does that does that make sense. Don't yeah yeah that's right. I mean you don't want your kids to grow up checking boxes because you know all of a sudden when they're eighteen nineteen and they do that. I mean one. You're going to impact the relationships they have and to. You know they're gonNA probably reject that way of living because they're gonna find you know especially if we're modeling them to biblical application that that that form of love or that conditional love does not jive or lineup scripture. So likely they would probably reject that way of life. You know another thing is something. My wife sees a lot with her Doing doing behavioral health and Counseling. With kids is kids will learn that. Okay if I'm acting up or they learned to get attention and if you're only giving them attention when they do something wrong or or you're overreacting. When they're doing something wrong. Kids learn that and it almost reinforces were Bad behavior were kids will then start saying well at least. I'm getting some reaction from dad when I do something wrong. So it can sometimes have the opposite effect where if were withholding love and affection It pushes a kid to another extreme of doing anything to get our attention or our lover approval And so can have detrimental consequences in that got daughters and wetlands. I want that to be like a loud gong in your ears. And just let it just permeate through your brain to like you have almost brain damage because the idea is like if if that's the way that you're going to be with your daughter Newsflash she's GonNa find that acceptance anywhere she can get it as Lynn likelihood be in relationships that she has no business being in. But because you know we're prideful were angry or we are. I am man. Hear Me Warren. We we show a different kind of love than what God calls us to. Do you know they're going to be doing these things? He's very things that we're trying to protect them from. And you need like raise your hand and say Lord that one's me because I did make my love with my child. Unconditional as as daddy issues as daddy issues. Everybody everybody knows somebody. That's got daddy issues so guys don't fall into that trap. Yeah absolutely what? What have we got next number three? Don't threaten a child if you have rules in your house you know whether it be safety or based on you know what our house rules for. The child be consistent with them based on fact not on emotion so in the case of one to ten year old. If you're telling them not to play with electricity unplugging the TV or they're doing something dangerous not only. Can they shock or electrocute themselves? But you tell them that they're gonNA LOSE TV OR THEY'RE GONNA lose the media or the IPAD as a result of that be consistent with that. Don't all of a sudden Rian reinvent the rules that you set forth in your house and I'm just using that as an example so I got a good example? You know So me you know not being the British child. I learned that the hard way. Because do you know you know at one? Ten light socket looks exactly like the place. We put your car Qian. If you WANNA drive a car so six year old lance decided. I'M GONNA put a key in the light socket and see what happens and Let me let me just say that was shocking day for me. So did you ever make that mistake again? They'll know strangely I learned in. I've never thought about that again. And right there what. Lancia said GUYS. I want you to hear this too and gals that are listening. You know sometimes like yeah were horrified or we don't want the child to have any more danger pain or hurt but instead of coming down on even more sometimes you have to assess you know if you're not sure the wisdom of the discernment the Situation Prey on it. Talk to your spouse before you put potentially overreact. And sometimes the mistake in itself is enough. You know quences. Yeah exactly I remember like one of our little kids you know was at a school and was playing with scissors just learning how to use them and accidentally was playing with another kid and cut some. Harrer you know and it was parents. Were fine everything. I'll say that nobody blew a gasket but just bringing that up with that that child not to be named You know is horrific enough and they were broken and they were. You know they're never gonNa make that mistake again with scissors you know. And that's the thing is like I could have been overbearing. Could have been like. That's it just realizing that. No lesson learned. Now what you know shape model you know. Give them guidance and all that but let the idea is not to threaten them or to make their life. You know to a point where they can't function because they're so worried about how mom or DAD's coming down on the counter to that is do develop boundaries and conditions for a child to navigate life through and so that means you know boundaries for your child relative and meaningful to the ages at their at you know one they got to have the cognitive ability to understand what those boundaries are. You know obviously a little kid. You want to protect them from burning themselves from taking a a pot of hot water over stove and knocking down on themselves. There are certain things that immediately they have to know pain so a spank to the hand or to that but you know to let them know that this is sharp pain versus you know something. That is just ridiculously over borders apparent. Just because either were prideful. Were selfish retired. Were angry you know if we give them if we're more of a guide in truth and give them boundaries and give them conditions for them to navigate. This goes to what Lance is put on the Road Map. This develops character. This develops integrity. This imbalance develops honesty and while these things so important you know to this child. Will that all relegates back to know why these boundaries why these conditions are so important especially in the formative years of these kids ages one through them. Yeah no I think I talked about this a preview podcast but we did with our kids when they were about five six years old. We actually sat down and made out this list of rules with the kids and it was real simple stuff like you know. Don't don't lie cheat or steal and then we kind of added some like fruit of the spirit of glacier five twenty five stuff in there and From there then that that was the rules and we actually typed it up and it was on the wall. I framed it. And that's what the kids knew. That was the baseline and it was like okay. If you break one of these rules you knew that there was going to be consequences. And it was pretty clear it was pretty clear cut And and there was never any questions about it at that point and if it was ever any questions we could say. Hey what what were the rules on the wall that you you helped me develop these rules. You broke the rules on now. There's the consequences so I didn't ever have to overreact or anything like that. Not Not saying that. I didn't 'cause there were times. I overreacted but I always tried to say. I didn't have to threaten the child that say okay. Hey you knew the rules. There's the rules right on the wall. you broke the rule so now here's the consequences. I think it just makes it a lot. Easier for US So long when we talked about these rules I'm GONNA get into number four here and Number four is don't overly protect your kids from failure and so what I mean by this and we talked about this in our podcast and overprotective parenting. But YOU WANNA WE WANNA encourage them to keep trying and always keep learning but they're gonNA fail and when they fail. We don't always run in and try to save them from the consequences of failure or Rescued them and make sure they never experienced failure in their life because we want them to experience failure in some of these smaller areas. Because that's how they're GONNA learn Resilience and that's all you're GONNA learn to

Why Do We Get Brain Freeze?

Why Do We Get Brain Freeze?

"Headaches for a lot of reasons. Sometimes foods like chocolate cheese or cured meat can cause them other times it stress or maybe changes in our sleep habits headaches are also caused by strain sinus problems coughing and even sex. And if you're really unlucky there a sign of neurological problems. But do you know what causes headaches over one third of the population ice cream diabolical evil ice cream otherwise known as a brain freeze or a quote cold stimulus headache in more lofty circles. The ice cream headache only requires two things first. Something cold touching the roof of your mouth and second hot environment like a summer day or Asana or a yoga class full of sweaty people. That's where we all usually eat ice cream right. Brain freeze is caused by both a constriction and dilation of the blood vessels in your head. There's a nerve center just above your mouth and when it gets cold it signals the anterior cerebral artery to widen trying to heat your brain with warm blood. Since the skull is a closed structure. The sudden rush of blood could be increasing pressure which causes the pain. We feel it's kind of a horrible stabbing achey feeling but the warm air around you causes these blood vessels to restrict again relieving the pain about ten to twenty seconds after its onset. This experience is reportedly similar to a migraine headache albeit a very short one it's possible. The influx of blood is supposed to protect your brain from extreme cold. The pain is usually in the mid frontal area but it can be unilateral in other parts of the brain. But don't worry. Experts say that ice cream isn't going to give you brain damage or anything in fact when they're correcting aneurysms doctors sometimes low your brain temperature down to sixty four degrees. Fahrenheit or seventeen point eight degrees Celsius so ice cream. Ain't no thing. Except there's only one cure for brain freeze. Never eat ice cream again. No I'm just kidding in one article about these headaches. A researcher actually said ice cream. Abstinence is not indicated so keep eating all the ice cream you want but slow it down a bit there. Hawse try to eat in small bites and avoid the roof of your mouth also. You may be more likely to get brain freeze if you already get migraines. The science isn't confirmed on that but since the vascular response of ice cream headaches is similar to the experience of migraine sufferers they may be more vulnerable. Researchers are investigating this connection now in hopes of developing. Even better painkillers.
