Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021
"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

Hence the personal bart's typically people will say we're running an abm account based program. Were running with like maybe three hundred five hundred accounts. We usually only have about two to three dozen accounts and we're focused on accounts that are fitting the ict to a t.

Breaking Through To The Next Level As An Entrepreneur With Gina Bianchini
"There's two parts of our audience. We're all remote. I eight eighty percent of us are business. Owners and twenty percent of us are aspiring business owners and remote workers. So i'll start with the business owners in a one of my goals is to reach my full potential entrepreneur. And i've always sort of been stuck in the low seven figures. I've always built like these businesses. That are really nice team of tannin. We're we're productive and it's cool and stuff but we've never really got to that point where we broke through and got on the radar and our industry or anything like that. There's a lot of us like that. Listen to this show and you've managed do that so i'm just curious like what are some general principles or points advice. You'd have for us on how we could progress to get to that next level of entrepreneurship. Yet it's a good question. You know on some level the entrepreneurs that i have the most respect for are the ones that have built their own businesses. There is so much like in terms of silicon valley businesses and the particular game of growth equity and tech entrepreneurship. That are like kind of horrible. Like like not that cool like what any number of different things in terms of in terms of the game. But here's what i would say is for any business whether you're in the six figures. Seven figures eighty. It's about looking at. What is it that i do. What is the value. People are getting from it. And what are the different ways that we can scale it and the good news today is that you can scale with no code or by just putting your credit card with platforms like mighty and others in ways. That were not possible even two years ago. I personally think that one of the most important things is just continuing those practices as the entrepreneur of like. What did i learn this week. What are the three or four things that come out of that learning. And how do i bring this into to my next week.
How to Get Business Credit, with Ty Crandall
"How did you get into credit in the first place. Well the first company ever owned was a mortgage company. And i own did back in two thousand six seven and i just thought i was a rockstar like wow. I'm just not true entrepreneur to be seven figures pretty quickly. Apparently is like you know pretty easy to do. When mortgages were spiking like the same as seeing with real estate now and then i was there and road that out until everything collapsed and at that point i was doing jumbo loans. My entire segment of that industry went away overnight and we went from producing a lot of money to producing no money and not having an ability to produce. We couldn't even place loans. The lenders weren't even accepting loans for months in what we were doing. And then we'll be on. So i kinda went through this process building successful business and then being there and watching it fail and i like a lot of business owner personally guaranteed credit lines. Credit cards. didn't think much about it but then the problem was was started to go late on some things for the business. Those in showed up on my personal credit report in a couple of things happen and i hadn't accounted for a thought well if the economy shifts i've had hundreds of thousands of dollars of revolving credit i've gone. All this money in the bank will what happened at that. Point was both things went when that stuff started. Hit my consumer poor all my credit card issuers. Lower my list. What i owed that crushed by credit scores and then at the same time of the banks that i didn't owed money to for the credit lines to the business came in literally removed all the money from all my bank accounts naaman all set so people. Listen i'm going to interject for a second. That is really scary. That's really scary. When you're in a position of saying. I have this credit limit. What could possibly go wrong. They shrunk your credit when they lowered your ceiling and then suck money out of your counts. That is terrifying. Sure going over much happens in the credit system that credit bureaus get alerts when thanks change and what people don't understand is that there's something called the small business financial exchange and in order to be part of the small business financial exchanges to give get metality so all the major banks all the major credit card. Issuers are part of it. And what happens. Is they openly exchange information with each other whether it is or is not on your credit report so if you fill out an application for a credit card or for loan at bank of america well most people don't realize is wells fargo chase. They all have that information eating medial acceptable when you do so this even can help them trigger alerts when things change so if you have five credit card companies and you go late on one whether reports are a dozen than the other ones no and immediately typically than lower your limits and since available credit is thirteen percent of your score thirty score. I mean just your score overnight can go from seven hundred fifty seven sixty down to five twenty like it did and then your ability to use that credit to be able to rebound goes away. That's very real. What happens when you go lay on any accounts which is one of the reasons you wanna keep accounts putting on your business credit reports not your consumer but the second part was scary too because when they remove all your bank not even money. That's their right. You have checks written against so all kinds of of adverse consequences happened. All these checks bounced utilities. Are getting shut off. Things happen as a result of that

"seven figure" Discussed on Marketing for Consultants
"Up a reputation within a very tight. Knit community And founders of tech startups who able to deliver a big transformation for any other pieces of the puzzle there. I think just to color one of them that the efficiencies very important so the squirrel phone i mentioned before is an evolution so i noticed people would phone me and i noticed that i could help them very fast than i said. Maybe i should do something with that. The fact that people are finding the means that there's a demand for filming. And i don't mind it in fact i can help them very quickly and if i tell them i wonder if people will abuse it you know i wondered to myself if i tell people just when you need me will i get twenty phone calls a day. The answer is no the answer is no one has ever abused it in tens of clients who have have had access to it and so now. It's a standard component of my practice. So it's looking. For those kinds of efficiencies that have helped me to help even more clients. So i helped two or three in the first year it was. I didn't even count last year. Might have been thirty or forty so that that's increasing the number that i can work with at the same time by being more efficient and that also helps to get to the In increased income and increased has for more people fantastic okay. Is there any recurring revenue there in in terms of retainers for for a phone access or is that just paid off at work out. Now this is something. My co author is always bugging nevada. I wrote a book called agile conversations. You can find it on douglas dot com and elsewhere and i wrote it with a co author. Who's kind of putting his toe in the water to do consulting and i try to encourage him not to make mistakes. I didn't to charge a fixed rate. And so on he's very receptive to that the thing he's always bugging me about and i think he's right about is that i'm missing the second and third and fourth sale so i should be this actually perfect reminder for that client. I was talking to this morning. I i need to write a proposal tomorrow. So i'm gonna include. I'm telling the world now going to include a option for ongoing retainer work in the proposal which i should do all of them and i don't always yeah so i should do that better I do have clients who continue. They'll often have a transformation project and then continue with the squirrel phone for a quarter or two afterwards to help. Make sure that the changes stick. And i should do more of that because of course it's much easier sale they already know of me And that's exactly what this Client i was talking to this morning. is they. They had me do a small piece of work in december urgently. And then they came back and said now you made some recommendations. Can you help us make those happen. So i should do a lot more of it and it would help me more to do more. I'm going to be working on that. Okay so we're using the word at transform and transformational and i know that you're am that the book agile conversations you you have as subtitle. Transforming conversations transform your culture by the way jack word. I think it's terrible that it's so hard to work. The transformation just is so meaningless that people season so we should talk more about it..

Kerr made on going to be asking for that local business. That's family owned. I'm certainly going to be looking for a testimonial they're so people can see the breadth of what i do when they go to my website. And that's about as much as i ask for today The exception is sometimes someone will be particularly well connected and i will ask them to talk about me at an event that they might go to or in a forum or in a group that they're part and again they're in this tight knit community startups. There's lots of those there's And and sometimes like my san francisco client. I just was asking last week. Can you introduce me to some other people in your area. Who are in san francisco are in your industry in the founders said. Oh well yeah actually do some angel. Investing there's some folks that i invest in who should probably use you. Then that's going to lead to more san franciscans in my in my portfolio. Which i think will be helpful to broaden that network but What i don't do and probably should is with every client say great. Can you give me three people that i should talk to. Can you give me give me air. Email can make an introduction. Can iphone them. If i were really aggressive mode if i were looking for as much new business as i could find that that's what i would be doing. I just haven't needed to either. The organic referrals been right right. Okay so one of the things that you do. Is you try and make the projects as short as possible. There inherently valuable projects already because they are a transformative so so people are willing to pay for them either anymore. Not necessarily so not. Everyone is so one thing to qualify. Of course is whether people are actually see. The transformation is valuable enough. And there's always folks who are coming along and saying gosh you know if i work out your hourly rate that's a high number and i say yeah and that's a good thing when you pay more to get a package someplace faster and you don't calculate you know. How many hours are you paying for of the postal person. You know delivering your packages to get it there tomorrow instead of next week you you pay for getting the package there quickly because that's a value to you..

"Don't do any of that stuff. You just pick up the phone and push buttons and you talk to me and that's got a kind of standard price. I'm thinking of you putting it on my website a product that you can buy and people just by that so. That's a quite standard thing. Of course then all the questions. That are completely different. And i get to know the company and i. I help them in that ad hoc way in in different ways but That's that and the due. Diligence are kind of standardized. There's kind of a price. I house for out. doing it. It's a standard process and so a lot more of the work outside. Those two areas are customized projects for transformation of teams and every one of those is different right. And so i mean you must have some pretty high value projects going If you can get up to one million dollars in revenue uh-huh yup. So i keep i keep doubling my prices and and that keeps working out well and what on is the very spectacular work that i've done for clients and spectaculars word i use intentionally. It is Is a spectacle it's sort of thing that people want to go and tell their friends about so Taking a team that is completely delivering. you know has has been delayed on a single project for year and within a month. They're delivering new value every day. That's the sort of thing i do again. And again and people want to tell that story. So if i had simply taken a team that was kind of not performing great and i made them porn perform ten percent better. That might be very valuable than that. Might make the company excited about what. I didn't want me to come back and help another team. But it wouldn't make them go down the pub and say hey. I have this person and if my team is suddenly so much better yeah this guy squirrel you gotta talk to him Element that's important. Yes so so. You're on the transform. Transformation end of the spectrum rather than optimization so and where optimizing its dramatic optimizations right. And you'd want to say you know this used to be five percent analysis at one hundred and twenty percent somewhat francis kind of built in Built in virology of the about people wanting to talk about it because it's so spectacular Can you tell me a little bit..

Old need to save per month to be a millionaire by the time that they're sixty five so investing because we use that word saving investing interchangeably here. But you're saying even though he signed a ten million dollar contract. How much does he need to invest monthly to reach a million dollars by the time. He's at retirement. So i want you to think about that and then we have sort of a be a second part of the question if a twenty year old college kid not even graduate twenty year. Old college kid wants to be a millionaire by the time they get to age sixty five. How much per month does the twenty year old college kid need to save to be a millionaire about sixty five now.

Playing To Win With Leadership Habits
"Welcome to the salon. Nba podcast. I'm your host helena gibson founder straight hair solutions and creator of the seven figure salon academy if this is your first time with us. Welcome this is your one. Stop show for tips and tricks. Different ideas inspirations. On how to build a strong foundation for your salon or beauty business. I am so low this week. It is raining cats and dogs right in front of me so odd for san diego. So we're tucked in the house. And as i was coming up with what i wanted to talk about i wanted to kind of piggyback off of what we talked about last week which was culture in how we all have a culture even if we didn't realize it or not it's definitely in our business which is reflection of us the owner or ceo and that's the same thing with leadership so that's going to be our theme today animates ads. Just give you a couple of tips on that anson. Different things that i use as a leader to help guide my team and in our salon program which is our six months signature program. These are some of the things we go over for building the foundation for your salon business or any business for that matter because culture and leadership our key to creating a strong teen environment to scale past six and seven figures in your business so let's start with leadership. Basically leadership is the lid. She scaling to fix in seven figures. Wherever your wherever. Your top is your masks You're going to be able to take your business so again. Think of it like a ceiling Pop lid off and so a few key traits that the leader that the leader needs one is clarity of vision. You have to have a mission that so inspiring in so big that you attract he a players. It's gotta be something that gets you out of bed to especially when it's a saturday and we're doing here and you want to stay home and lay in bed we all do or whatever your your mission. Your vision has to be very clear for your team to buy in to. And we work on that all the time and i'm constantly refining and while and then actually our mission with us with our academy is so clear of helping thousands salon owners to reach financial freedom by twenty twenty five. I mean how big of a vision can you get the right. I mean it. It's just so big and then eventually all make it even larger. That's just a start in the next four years and impacting many families. So what kind of mission or vision do you have an how you communicate that to your team to get their buy in with it as well. The other one at number two is communications skills. We are in the people business so we have to learn how to communicate with other people and again something. I'm always refining. And i found that over the years. It's gotten much better. But there's still a ton i could work on and improve even in my own communication skills. Sometimes i come off. You know just a little rougher than i would like With my delivery but again. It's something i'm aware of and something that i'm working on. So your communication skills with your team with your clients with your vendors is extremely important because you're building relationships and one of the things are talk about. Is people buy from people. They know alike and they trust. And if they don't like you they don't trust you. They're not going to buy from you and that's a key Key from communication. So you really definitely wanna make sure you've got that down. The third tip for leadership is building. A-team i've heard great. I heard a great quote last night. Where gentlemen was saying. I'd rather be friends with them than co workers and resent them later and that really was profound. Because i've had that happened with a few team members before and you have to be able to build a team and you have to know when somebody doesn't fit in that team in a more it can't be oj so great a wildlife her. She'll get better. Hey if you're trying to impact on your mission if we're trying to hit thousand salon owners and help them reach their goals. I can't have c. n. d. players on my team just because i like them personally. They've got to go because then what happens is they stay too long then i end up resenting them later they resent me later it. It's just it just doesn't serve anyone so i love that saw out. It's even worse repeating. I'd rather be friends with them than co workers and resent them later. I i thought that was huge. The other thing is fostering a great culture which we dug into last week silent. Go over that again. But you have to have a great culture
Jeremiah Owyang - Social Audio Analytics and Constituent Groups - Voicebot Podcast 195 - burst 07
"I want to come back to this idea social audio analytics and maybe the social audio management system this is going to be near and dear to the heart to a lot of the people who listen to this podcast because their space is accustomed to taking raw audio content transforming taxed analyzing it Actually putting it against other services and potentially returning information. So i wanted to explore that with you. A little bit we. We haven't seen that publicly yet and any of these social audio spaces you expect. People are actually doing it today. How do you think that that's going to play out. Do you expect this to be predominantly the platforms are going to try to control it and use this as a feature and trying to block other people or do you think it's mostly going to be third parties coming in and somehow getting the feed whether through direct. Api or from a rogue angle and then being able to provide that data to people who are interested in it. Yes so. I think there's maybe four constituent groups to think about here. Let's try to break this down. And i don't have all the answers here. I'm speculating so there are the platforms themselves twitter spaces and clubhouse and facebook. I think they are so twitter. Spaces already has real time voice to text translation into english which is on the lower third for some speakers. It's a three second delay about ninety percent accuracy. Ucla right yes okay. The second group would be the Government agencies and spies They're probably already doing it. But we'll never know. Group will be the traditional social media Analytics companies like salesforce and adobe salesforce acquired radian six In two thousand eleven ten years ago For three hundred million and their job was to grab all of the text based social media content. That was being produced at a rapid pace and make insights out of it and sell to brands for seven. Figure deals annually on what is being set in their market and give them analysis on share voice sentiment byproduct by region by country by network by individual by they produce. I was involved heavily with that industry now. The fourth group the fourth group i think is the one that will deploy so i. I don't think salesforce. And adobe wanna risk breaking the terms of service against twitter and risk that access that they already have in their. Api I don't think they wanna be scraping that content and also risk privacy concerns especially when a democratic administration is very concerned about privacy when it comes to social media as well as on the right hand side of the government as well they're even more concerned about suppression of so i don't think those big giant tech companies Adobe salesforce and oracle to do an ibm want to do that. So i think it's gonna be the fourth category which will be roguish punkish startups that are going to rip the content off with botts at a recording. The information then conduct voice to text analysis. And then do the other things that i already mentioned with sentiment in mining and influence analysis network. So i think it's going to be done under the covers of darkness fair enough and do you believe that the botts will be listed as users and basically some sort of fake user or are they going to be attached to a real users use. The system could be both. I mean there are. People are reporting data out of social audio by using. You know i rig systems and connecting to their ipod to other systems as well and just you know exporting that data. That's already happening.

Can you believe that was the name of of kids to their dorm room looking to name things. Funny thing names you know so. I just fell in love with google and wanted to figure out how to reverse engineer it and at the time we were building ecommerce websites as the primary business but baking. Seo into those websites became a fiction of ours and and for me in particular and then i realized that there are a lot of other kinds of websites out there and bigger businesses who would never hire a small agency to build an ecommerce site for them. Because maybe it's a huge brand like target dot com or something so we wanted to offer audits and standalone seo consultancy services beyond just making it into an ecommerce website build and That was back in two thousand or so two thousand two thousand and one and We've been cash. it's been It's been a long road and there've been a lot of google updates and it's not about chasing after the latest update. It's like driving a car using only the rear view mirror. If that's the case and my thet ford to the future of future proofing year Your business and Online business your website and so that would involve things like a and Scalable strategies things of course need to be pearly white hat not just pretty white hat and is to be you know super super white and stuff that you're comfortable sharing with google engineers and saying here's what i'm doing if there's anything you're at all not comfortable with you should reevaluate something. You are happy to to show off to google engineer or Be happy for your competitor. Discover when they're reverse engineering what you're up to in terms of seo than yeah you should reevaluate it. You've said you've mentioned reverse engineering a lot in the first couple minutes of this help take part of reverse of your career has reverse engineering big. Sounds like it's a big. Yeah so i figured out at pretty early stage in in my business career that i could not just reverse engineer google's algorithm but kind of Put a middleware layer between my clients website and the greater internet and thus i could Kind of search and replace real time things that were not search engine optimized on the core website but i would like to search engine optimize it and serve it up to and needed a proxy kind of middleware layer in order to do that. Because if i were to do that on the Let's say blue martini. If you remember that platform install it would take many minds. And maybe a million dollars to implement the changes that i wanted to see on the live site and so i invented a proxy reverse proxy technology Back in two thousand and three called gravity stream and that actually became the majority revenue producing component or part of the agency and a. It was a big reason why i was able to sell the agency in two thousand and ten because that was Like majority of the revenue was performance based pricing. We had client for example. zappa's We charge seven figures in Pay for performance Spend in a year's time because we were generating that much value for them. We charged on a cost per click basis. Fifteen cents a click so everybody wanted to sign up because folks who doesn't want pay for performance if you don't get the performance you don't get the value you don't pay for it so we bring that back down to kind of our core audience which is really people that are just learning about see.

What kind of things would make sense for them to try to reverse engineer without these big multi million dollar tools. Is there something they can do as as new people to really help them totally leverage yeah totally just off the cuff. Some examples here just doing a simple. Google search can help you to reverse engineer. Let's say what buzzfeed is doing in order to get so many links and and so much Click through nee click throughs. It's the the hook and the headline. That's kind of their secret sauce. They have the pick really good Images and they write the articles. Well and you know come up with great quizzes and all that as well but really it starts with the hook and then the headline and if you want to reverse engineer what they're doing as inspiration to raise your own viral content link worthy of viral content. So that you can get like they get. You might put in your topic. Plus site colin buzzfeed dot com in as a google search. And see what comes up as The articles and and the headlines if you want to get a little fancier with it you could do in title colon and then the topic. There's no space after the coal by the way so entitled colon plumbing for example if you're plumber and then site colon buzzfeed dot com. It's so simple. And yet you're aren being essentially ripping off in duplicating But i like. I said with using it as inspiration not copy and paste so. Let's actually do that. Site colon buzzfeed dot com and then in title colon plumbing or vice versa. Doesn't matter the order can do entitled i or cyclone i seven expert plumbing tips to keep in mind.

Well hey there. Emily welcome to the show. Yea thanks for having me. Oh i'm so happy you're here and before we get started. Why don't you give just a brief introduction to what hersh markings all about. Yeah so hirsch. Marketing is an ad agency. We specialize in facebook and instagram ads. 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
How Best To Sell Your Company
"I often get contacted with private questions. Folks don't want to appear on the podcasts. It's things like ham thinking through an exit. You know potentially. I have a acquisition offer some interest or i need to potentially fire co-founder pretty tough things that you can't have on the air but one that i do get relatively frequently and i think it's because i've been so public about during drip and then and then selling it is should i sell my company. Should i think about selling my company. What does that entail or even have an offer or have someone sniffing around. And i'm thinking about selling what should i do and i'll tell you. I received these emails and it is such a life. Changing moment there can be such a huge swing from selling for net profit versus selling revenue. And knowing how to do that and wants to put in place and that process that i just wanted to make it's almost a public service announcement that if you're up and doing at least seven figures and era in my opinion you should not sell for net profit multiple. You should be selling for a revenue multiple and these days. Those multiples are pretty healthy. Can listen back to the interview. I did with david. Newlove quiet light brokerage twenty thirty episodes ago and i was saying. If you're doing a million maybe get two to. Three x. And i believe he came back and said no. It's like three to four. Maybe three to five acts. And if you're doing five or ten million. The multiples are even larger. And so it's something that i think there's potentially some confusion if you're doing six figures and you're probably gonna sell for at net profit multiple but once you get into the millions there are so many buyers private equity strategic that are willing to pay healthy healthy prices life changing money never have to work again money. And frankly. If you're thinking about doing that. I would encourage you to reach out to me. Drop me a line. Whether even if you've you've had an offer you've had someone sniffing around or you think about doing that. I'm always happy to at least have a minimum. Have an email conversation about sometimes. I'm able to jump on on a phone call. And i know people who who who who do the sell side representation of sass apps and maximize that value and there are a couple founders. That have asked me for advice. And i've essentially laid out the options as i see them you know. There are brokers are sell side representation representation much like discretion capital which is was founded by interval. Set a tiny seed and you know depending on where you are and what you're thinking and what you wanna do. There are ways to maximize value. And it's something maybe. I'll do whole episode. Get on here at some point and talk about how to maximize that value. We have chatted about that on the podcast a bit but in my mind. It's just very important that the value you build your company if you're going to exit be deliberate about it because it can be the difference between selling four million dollars selling for five hundred dollars if you sell it well and you run the right process.

Russell Okung's bitcoin salary could trigger more pro athletes to invest
"How about getting paid in bitcoin. We have our very first. Nfl player that wants to be a part of the revolution that wants to be a part of the hype that wants to be part of the future of money. As bitcoin people would tell you. Crypto currency the carolina panthers russell ah kong becomes the first nfl player to be paid in bitcoin and this is exclusively. Bitcoin fifty fifty. Okay and they actually. It's complicated. they had to go to the players. Union see if it was even possible or if it fit within the guidelines of whatever the player agreement is but also. It's not actually bitcoin. Coming directly from the organization to the player. There's a company called zap. And it's a startup. They have a product called strike and away strike works. Is it integrates with your bank account on your end and it integrates with whoever it is. Who's paying your salary. And what strike will do is immediately Create that conversion coming from the payment before going out to you and instead of processing it through the bitcoin network. They essentially front you the money so they can do it faster without the processing required through the network so they're an intermediary there I don't know they're kind of like a bank sort of their payment processor but and so this particular individual is not alone. There's there's been some more secretive athletes doing the same program including unnamed members of the brooklyn nets basketball team. You can probably guess who might be interested in brooklyn nets names like kyrie irving big internet guy. It's possible kevin durant on team as well Players from the new york yankees have begun on boarding to the program and so people are interested in the case of a kung. He'll be split. He'll be splitting his thirteen million dollar yearly salary fifty fifty between bitcoin. That's a big chunk. Bitcoin yeah he's i mean that's that's pretty smart. He distributed Did he do this like himself or do you think it's his like eight or man. No he's a real bitcoin guy and has been for awhile. Yep and Prior he i spoke about wanting to do this in two thousand nineteen but as mentioned was a complex process to get it cleared. Nfl into everybody involved and was into bitcoin. Even prior to that talking about Independence and not being tied to any one. Particular currency actually in enthusiast. Let me just break it down for you one more time. So strike says its processing into the seven figures monthly for volume and. They're not charging any money for that right now but eventually the idea is they would take a small piece right. And that's a tremendous upside if you onboard enough people to the process and it seems like they're attracting high profile individuals who don't want to have to manage those funds or to go straight to bitcoin themselves from their paycheck kind of makes the process easier transfers the bitcoin into cold storage on behalf of the individual. They don't even have to think about it. Touch it they can know that it's secure. It's a really interesting service. And they expected to grow amongst athletes and high profile individuals. We'll see how that goes. But
How Much Money Can You Make on YouTube?
"Youtube is a media monster. It's such a huge platform and such a great search engine for information entertainment education. It's a real live monopoly. Nothing comes close to youtube. Yes there's video but the meals really not there as a source of media people maybe post videos and is very short in the film industry or in the arts but nobody comes close and believe it or not. It's still very early days in youtube. You still can get into youtube and really grow. I still find an astonishing. That youtube is still free. Meaning you can start a youtube channel. You can publish to the platform. You can store videos. You can accept comments. All this is free. And yes their business. Model relies on content. That will create. But you can easily charge a very small annual fee just a stroll. He's videos for crying out loud. But it's still open for everybody for free which is a great opportunity. There's over two billion logged in users every single month on youtube and this statistic is huge eighty-one percent of fifteen to twenty five year olds are on youtube. This means the existing and future generations in the next five to ten years that are spending. Money are on this platform over five hundred hours of video uploaded to youtube every single minute and ask business. Youtube is not going anywhere in the us alone. They made five point. Five billion dollars in revenue in just twenty twenty. So what are your options when it comes to earning an income on youtube. Well the obvious option is to become a creator being a youtuber. Were you publish content on youtube channel and youtube places ads on your video when people watch those ads. You get a bit of money now. How much money. You might be surprised about this figure. But i do research based on other youtubers. I've read forms read. It's an on average for every thousand video views. You can earn between three and five dollars. Why the range will depend on. Popular channel is how in demand. Your videos are Retention rates all that kind of stuff it also depends on the length of the video. How many ads are on that video. All that kind of stuff. But this is just general Barometer for you so if a video gets let's say ten thousand views you're probably gonna make around forty dollars on that video so just off that rough number you might be thinking. Wow that's not that much money that means if a video got a million views which is absolutely incredible. Very hard to do that. Video would earn ten four. To five thousand dollars in ad revenue. Now you can see why youtubers true publish as many videos as possible. The try to get you to subscribe So you can watch those videos reminder to watch those videos the do a lot of seo. They wanna get people searching and finding their videos and watching those it is even if subscribers because their ad revenue dollars count on the fact that people click on videos. Watch the videos watch threats now in order for you to even monetize. Your channel youtube requires you to have a thousand subscribers to your channel. This is a new rule that they place maybe a few years ago When i started on youtube this wasn't there also have to have at least four thousand watched two hours in the last twelve months so you can't just have a bunch of subscribers and Views to another rough estimate. I know noah kagan recently launched a video on youtube talking about How much money the earn on ads in washington. Ads run on his channel and they earn between three to four thousand dollars a month and they have a hundred thousand subscribers around one hundred thousand subscribers and a takes a lot of work. I mean no has been working on his youtube channel four years publishing great grey videos on a regular basis highly produced a well edited very engaging. So if you're looking to make money on youtube as a youtuber solely on ad revenue this has got to be your main game. This has got to be your Dedicated craft where you're trying your best to produce amazing content gray videos gray editing and those who make a healthy income six figures seven figures on youtube the really catering to a large large audience. They're trying to mass a huge audience and often niches that are in comedy entertainment sports tech things that will appeal to the masses. Now if your business is not one of those knee shes don't worry that's not the only way you can make money on youtube ad. Revenues only one way. And it's actually not the one way. I would recommend videos agree to build relationships. It's a good way to start the relationship to educate people to give content I would say second to blogging. Videos are incredibly powerful and it's becoming more and more a seo powerhouse. People search for certain things videos will come up so see youtube as a way for you to get in front of your audience and give them great value in exchange. They're going to check you out. Check out your work. Subscription newsletters Understand what you and take you up on it. A lot of companies have started youtube channels solely on the fact that youtube is so powerful and they can get in front of their audience. Very easily one caveat. Though you're in the video business in youtube you're basically becoming a media company in any kind of investment you're gonna make in content marketing. You need to be consistent. You need to be committed. This means consistently producing great video great content. Then it's a lot of work to create a video so whatever it is whether you decide to create a video every two weeks or every month you gotta stick to it. It's a lot of work in my recommendation is to get somebody dedicated to this on your team or you dedicate yourself if this is something you enjoy doing now. I don't recommend that because you need to run a business so hiring one person to run your youtube channel is the bare minimum in my Estimation you should really have somebody and they could be the talent that could be the person in front of camera. But they're they're the person that has to be responsible for producing these videos on a consistent basis. Very much like podcasting Your youtube subscribers are looking forward to the next release. They are expecting the next piece of content from you and you got to fulfill those expectations and utah will reward you for that consistency for the constant effort to adding to their great content on the platform. And yes you can also monetize and make some Money on the side based on your views but in this strategy your mean goal here is to build a relationship with the larger audience. that's on youtube With people that are searching for certain terms getting them to get your website get on your email lists and continue growing that relationship there so they can become a customer if you want to check out some examples of companies. Have done this really. Well checkout prophet. Well patrick campbell and his team has done incredible job with their youtube channel. Checkout podesta's youtube channel. I mentioned a noah kagan.

"Portland, Oregon Mayor Ted Wheeler sent the city's police force to a victim New autonomous Zone that cropped up around an anti eviction protest on Tuesday, reversing a month long policy of tolerating ongoing demonstrations even when they turn violent. Protesters have been camping out for months to prevent the eviction of the Kennedy family. On Tuesday morning, tensions escalated protesters used fences and barricade set up by law enforcement officials to surround the home, which has been renamed the Red House on Mississippi due to its location. One Mississippi Avenue, according to Newsweek. Videos of the autonomous Don't appeared on Twitter, showing a shanty town made of cardboard boxes and pilfered public fencing with warning signs posted on the outside reports indicated that a few dozen protesters plan to take up residence in the autonomous zone surrounding the right house. Family $100,000 on the home. The bank foreclosed protesters believe that the family should not be forced out during a pandemic and that the bank was seeking a swifter eviction because the property next to the home recently sold for more than seven figures when the city refused to honor protestors demands they organized their autonomous zone like Chazz Shop in Seattle. And even this was a little too humiliating for it. Mayor Ted Wheeler. So he authorized Portland police to break the thing up shortly before 5 A.m. on Wednesday morning, the Portland police and won't know me. Multnomah County Sheriff began their property mission reclaiming the land on which protesters had set up the autonomous zone. He said it was not simply a protest that were dismantling. Apparently there was a stockpile of weapons and the presence of firearms, According Portland police chief Chuck Leavell says We're aware of the threat to the community to media into police. We've seen the attacks. The Portland police will enforce the law and use force, if necessary to restore order to the neighborhood. Well, I'm glad they finally realized that there was one bridge that was too far for them. You literally have to get to the point for Democrats of threatening violence before people like, Oh, maybe this. Maybe this person shouldn't be like a mainstream part of our coalition. Get

"Nailed it. Anything. Else. To say on. This might seem random popped in mind because I just had a baby last year and I think you did as well. I've got. Yeah because we were going back and forth and I believe you have another kid as well to to correct. Yeah. How are you? Like I'm just thinking of the kids. Now I'm like, Oh my God like I've never had this kind of thinking whereas see systems literally are crumbling are reinventing or just completely done for. How do you like? How are you preparing your kids in your another pretty Dang young still but How do you anticipate? Like. What do you see this thing looking like for them and how are you going to guide them? Well I think it's important to not put. Our judgments of the world onto them in the sense of like somebody was saying I feel so bad for kids and like growing up in this world right now and I think but that's based on our judgments about how we grew up and what we enjoyed growing up Like, my daughter is has a completely different set of things that she's into his experiencing. Those are for her to decide and it's not my place to judge issue likes Disney movies or if she likes to be outside. By. Now I can guide her and make judgment calls, but it's it's it's not my role. I were natural interests go. One of the great gifts that my parents gave me, they never tried to push their interest onto me encourage wherever my address were. And so on the first on the first entrepreneur in the family right I don't know where the genes got crossed and made me WanNa do that but they encouraged that. Yeah. So I'll encourage wherever my kid show genuine interest now in more practical things like school. Yeah I do think that there's GonNa? Be a change to that structure we decided to my daughter's also go to kindergarten did not to put her in kindergarten this year is The only a massive moment for the be more homeschool knowing there's GonNa be more a group home schooling were it's ten kids and two teachers and all of the parents chip and all ten of them to pay the teachers salaries, right? Yeah. And we'll be less than property taxes. It'll be less than it costs to educate somebody in the public school system but I'm not sitting there judging all the judging that my daughter is GonNa Miss. Recess. Play. Her. Journey as her off and she decided what she likes and keeps from that, I don't try to maintain the system as good. Hassett. My kids. Yeah. I've got a five year old and a seven year old and just last year we kind of reached that promised land of like Mike both my kids are in school fulltime all day, and then when all the covid stuff we decided. We obviously had them at home but when we had him at home all day every day we kind of realized you know this is actually kind of Nice having us all together all the time I mean, there are times where it gets a little annoying in the house is really noisy and there's messes everywhere. But for the most part we really enjoy. So we actually made the decision to pull him out of public school and do homeschool ourselves now and I think kind of where where Joe was. Going a little bit, I think with the conversation was. More of the the way. The education system currently is as a sort of factory line for producing employees. Right I think that's where that's a little bit where my concern lies is when it comes to the education system, they're kind of going through this process of of learning things that. They're excited about like my kids they love the science type stuff they love recess and and that kind of stuff. But then they're not quite as into like history or you know that kind of stuff and I really believe like you figure out what types of stuff they're excited about and just lean into that kind of stuff more like still teach them the other fundamentals of the other things but lean into the shit that they they really light up about and that was sort of our decision making process behind. Okay. Let's do the home school thing a everything's. GonNa. Be screwed up next with covert anyway. So it's like we going to have a screwed up situation at public school or we're GonNa have a situation that's a little bit more on our control with home school. But at the same time, we also get to sort of lean into the stuff that excites more like my daughter loves art she loves painting and drying and very artsy artsy type stuff, right? So we're leaning into that she's doing a whole bunch of art classes and that sort of thing my son he's in kindergarten he doesn't know what he.

"Politics? In the world of covid right now I I mean I definitely see what you're talking about about anti-capitalism sediment right now because you've got covert and we're starting to see some failures on on some of the systems that are in place so. I just want. Yeah. Maybe your thoughts on just the state at it as it is right now with the systems that are out there the ones that we see failing and the ones that definitely need to be reinvented I mean at stupid example of MLB right here at the sixty games season that we brought. You know that's one of them. But that's A. I think what we are witnessing is the beginning of the end of big structures in big systems. So I a few years ago when Amazon when Amazon was starting to consolidate I have a lot of Amazon sellers with all my working I was saying the way through this is to build a micro brand is by picking a very small audience going all developing products for them. It's not is selling more spatulas is by going after the very small group of people in serving them like crazy. And I think we are seeing kind of a reflection of that in the world where seeing over the last fifteen years put everything on a grand stage and you have the beginning of big platforms in big structures, and if it were starting to see doc crumble and my hope is that means that federal powers become more state and local powers. It means that there is more room for people to be focused on their existing customers and clients rather than. You could build a really profitable enterprise just focusing on your small group of people that were creating change for rather than going out and trying to be a billionaire you become the billionaire by creating a brand serves a very specific group of people. So I think we are starting to see that Tran shifts in the macro where we have the end of big government, the end of big religion, and we're going to have some some crying growing pains for that we might have one more wave of a demand for big government, but ultimately all big structures and crumbling in going back to the power of individuals and I just think that's where we are on the waiver. I think you're seeing even on like the micro level to just like the one to one like Uber Airbnb that kind of stuff as well as like you know the when they used to be the big taxi services that owned every. Owned the transportation getting you from the airport to your hotel. Now, it's all uber you to see the hotels owning it all now it's all Airbnb, I, feel like you're you're starting to see that kind of thing happened more and more. It's like the smaller businesses are kind of. Getting more of a voice but now that one to one kind of model seems to be growing. So there's less need for the giant infrastructures of these big businesses. That's right. If you WANNA go big now you have to think about the one on the. Interaction though the way you big any business is to think about how do you make succeed on a micro level make it seat on an individual level, and that is the only way to get scale at this point so many entrepreneurs. I JUST WANNA. Scale out of the gate but you scale by having a one to one. Experience that is so good that now can be taken to one too many. This reminds me of like the thousand true fans concept. It's like you don't need a massive big old platform and we had jeans all in the show and he he's like you have a solid six figure business and live like a billionaire. So it's like come on you refrain what you're doing on your goals and it's probably GonNa help you from not stress an outbuilding. This thing to but you're solving genuine need for a group of people who will trust you because you're speaking to them directly and I must say like I think every time we give advice for really giving advice to ourselves. This is the advice I need right now right? Like because because I think for many years, I thought with a name like capitalism dot com had. To be this big platform and it was only by running into the wall and hitting my head against it over and over and over again that you realize you don't build a platform by trying to build a for you build a platform by having a meaningful impact in people's lives and that that, and that creates a bit of a crisis of meaning for me for A. Year and a half which makes me come back to what am I doing mice Oh, you know what? I really like doing my with my time conversations like this one that actually have an impact on one person. It helps them go start a business are up and is doing that work over and over and over again this is a this is the terrible mind fuck all. Like if we just let ourselves do the things we naturally enjoy the process of doing everything would unfold some for us. It's a trend and I don't know how like it was so much fun for me on Mike podcasts at one time that you heard it until get round with so much fun on this podcast. It's hanging out and sue is writing about herself in the night. So, if we just allow ourselves to do more of those things, every we would want would just naturally unfold but we think there's something that we want than we have to. Resist against that until we get it. And this is this is the lesson that life just keeps like like. Are you ready to learn? How would you like to learn this one which led? So, I have now have made at least realized it again hopefully for the last time that the way that I get what it is I want is to be in that mode to create that type of value rather than going and trying to create a platform. The kids knew what I want it is about going to the the person that you want to serve and giving them everything you've got..

"Back give. And the reason why and you end had he been that person? He would probably would have had a better chance. And so that's that's documenting the process versus what most politicians do, which is creating content, which is your four point plan. Yes Dan on a pedestal somewhere in talked from above. But yeah, it's the behind the scenes like that's the stuff we do. We have these therapy session episodes on our podcast once a month and this was because our audience asked us, Hey, we want to know about what Europe to now here these amazing people you bring in the show all the time you get a little bit of in their your perspective in the intro but that's why we started these episodes and some of the favorite. Those are the ones we get. The most replies for and our support or emails, and it's pure loyalty I mean that's Like Holy Shit I believe he shared this. It's helps so much and. We've seen every business can do that in some way I think that's the power podcasting is a medium in the first place I mean look at what Joe, Rogan and some of these celebrity podcasters are doing right now by essentially bringing on these celebrities and having normal like dude, dude conversations with them about like smoking weed and doing psychedelics and shit. Like. My brother used to say that he would really fall in love with a band when he would see them perform live. Because you always in your field is different connection with them than the Polish version that you hear on the radio exactly back then. So so the same is true in business the Mike. The more you can you share the inner workings of what is going on the more of a connection with your fans and customers. Honestly this kind of started this podcast to is to get that side out of someone like you you. Have these conversations that are it's not going to be a youtube video. You put up there. That's been clipped up thirty forty times like everyone does because to make you sound or presenting a concise way. Even if it's an hour long like you're going to see the human side of this conversation and that's the long form. In talked them into Arabian. That's probably why he's sodium popular because three hours long finally see the human like Elon Musk for instance, you're just like, Oh wow, he's got an interesting mind. Active right. That's exactly. That's that's exactly right. He has a way of disarming the other person because he doesn't come across as combatants which I think myself and a lot of the audience wishes he would push a little bit more but he's able to get the other person disarmed. Creates the the very humanizing experience address. Yeah. Yeah. It seems like we don't have to go. I was just going to say it seems like with some people he will push back and then other people eat really should push back more I just remember the Adam Khan over episode I'm like I think maybe Joe Rogan's push a little too hard I think he's about to start crying here but I'm thinking about Andrew Yang and all the things that I wanted him to push him on a rabbit hole that. Yeah. Twitter in yeah. I'll universal basic income talk and all that. But yeah we don't have to go down those rabbit holes because that's probably A. Really. So I wanNA, talk about what you have an audience. Once you've got a platform, let's say for instance, you have a podcast that's listened to by like fifty thousand people a month. For instance, just a random example. How would you figure out? How would you figure out what products to introduce to a specific audience? If you are building a business in the to serve that audience. Then it's just a matter of looking at what things they already by. But I don't know it may be a case where you have fifty thousand downloads in you serve entrepreneurs and Internet business owners. Than you would wanna look at who the person that you want to work with is. And create criteria for the types of business that I don't know you WANNA create equity. And talking about that documenting the experience of the businesses, a already had equity. And if you do that and you can show their growth in the inner workings of those conversations, then you get more people who resonate but fact. So it is either speaking to what the person already does or calling out the ideal client by showing those who are already your ideal client to the rest of the community and saying I want more people like this. That's how. That's you can do that right now..

"I WANNA. Lose it and keep it. So. What have to do here is not fair about how do I hit the goal but everything about now how do I sustain the goal which means whatever I'm going to be eating about one sixty I need to be doing that now whatever I'm going to be moving what I'm about one sixty, that's what I need to be doing now. and. So by flipping the whole thing on its head it, it's it's not working towards one sixty. It is living in one sixty right now at allowing the results to follow because I want to maintain that and build on those habits now, and then the weight stays off forever. So it is it is it is about zooming into the into the vision, but then doing the exact same things that you'll be doing. Then right now that's long term results brought into right now create better results in the short term as well. So, basically act and do the things that you would be doing. Once you're at the goal, don't wait to the goal to start doing them. That's exact-. That's exactly right. I mean. If I'm trying to lose twenty pounds, I'm GonNA. Do a whole bunch of cardio number myself outmoded been If I'm maintaining sixty than I'm getting ten thousand steps today and I'm lifting weights. Yeah. Things that I will I can do and will do the rest of my life. And, and that also take me to one sixty and it might be a difference of like two weeks. And that's the thing it'll just of happen probably without noticing you're not can be guitarist out. It's just ingrained in these habits that you're incentive us. That's smart I like that. So it's almost like inverse thinking you're kind of flipping it a little bit in terms of your actions obviously goals still there, but you're making them a lot more tangible now rather than years down the line. We can think about this in terms of business to right if I if I want to be making five million dollars, what am I going to be doing when I make five million bucks? Like how many leads am I gonNA be getting what types of leads going to be getting I need to start looking for those now. I answer. Those are the same things that I should be doing now but most of us say that we will work towards it but the work towards it means do a bunch of Shit in the way so that then we can do the thing that we wanted it. But if we flip it just when get to that place what he wanted to do. All right. Let's work a little bit and now. Our optimize that thing. And that's GonNa be the thing that ends up growing the next five years. Yeah. I. Love It. I love it. That's perfect and that kind of sounds like your book in a way because he have everything done in what three phases for starting a business and then within twelve months you're. One meal this all. Yeah. So Do you have anything else or KINDA WANNA chatterbox. So. Can you break down what those three phases are in kind of just the overarching thing about this book because it's kind of right on this bain sounds like yeah. So so so my book is for the new entrepreneur who is starting something with a seven figure vision and a seven figure business. I've just break this down into four products at twenty five sales a day just one hundred sales a day and a thirty dollar price point just three thousand dollars a day, which is a million dollar business. So the only thing we're trying to reverse engineer is, how do we get? Four products twenty five a day at a thirty dollar price point I break into three stages. The first stage is the grind. The grind is all of the hard decisions that you have to make within the first four months in order to take us a one sale. So that's all the first four months is deciding who my customer has, what the product is our launch thing how we're GonNa find this thing what we're gonNA. Call it. What our first product line is going to be, who are our partners going to be all that hard stuff we get out of the way we take one sale, get a prototype, take a sale. Stage to those next four months I call the growth. The growth is going from one sale two, twenty, five sales a day. When we prove that we can take twenty five sales a day we basically built the road. We have laid the pavement down for this road, which makes it a lot easier for more cars to amongst wrote. So the third phase the. Third Stage is called the gold and we launch. Two three and four on the same road and give them twenty five sales a day. So that the end we've got four products at twenty five sales a day. which is a million dollars. That's that's the book summed up in a minute and a half knows the book specifically focused on physical products or do you talk about software and digital products and things like that as well my my background is physical physical stuff. I actually a alter that I went up to when I when I was twenty three years old I was like If you were young and fresh out of college. What would you do with your life news at as many chicks as? Sounds. Like. Yeah sounds like. Any said you know what? I would do. would. Sell stuff. Dreams out. So stuff, you'll always gonNA buy stuff. As I guess really good advice and I took that to heart and. Focus on physical products the same principles specifically around audience building launching heartwarming, and all of those will apply to any business but my background is in physical products into it's written for Yeah, and it can be applied either way. Shoot at I WANNA ask about audience building. Do you is it still like is your philosophy still focus on building an audience once you built an audience then kind of find the right products to sell to those people or do you kind of approach it from the product I then build the audience? Yeah well. Audience, building is part of the process. So it's not about building the audience and then, and that's and that's a mistake that I made for a long time was bill audience, and then you build the audience by doing I'll tell you my podcast was never bigger than when I was simply talking about the businesses and the brands that I was actively building. That was when my and so at some point I just I, flipped it was like, all right. If I go all in on talking to my audience, it'll go even bigger. It's not the case they were following my journey. And so I have now been going back to okay like. I don't like teaching I like sharing when I'm learning along the journey and so now I'm back to that just today this morning I posted the the almost final label for my for the next brands that I'm about to launch a fix it's three products on often out. So does on switch on switch is your morning get up get into flow nutro VIC. The, the office evening decompress, throw it in your water non alcoholic way to chill the end of the day I'm a doctor..

Is probably going to be the Cleveland spiders at some point, which was their original name from the eighteen hundreds interesting her ray. Co Eight League. Well, you'll have saying that one day. One day. We'll talk I'm curious about your mindset because I know it's like. Well, in your in your new book, twelve months to one million, I know that's one of the chapters. Dedicate is the mindset and it sounds like obviously starting up from scratch anywhere you you gotta have a good mindset. So you obviously have a great one. You're human though so you're again valleys in your ebbs and flows I'm imagining. But what are some principles that you can live by day to day week to week to keep your head on straight with that pack if I if I could just pass one on, it'd be the longer term. You can think the better decisions you'll make. because. There's so many of us are in this after like, what is the immediate result going to be? But the longer you can think the better your results will be even in the short term. Give one of my mentors last week and were about ready to get to launch the single the capital's incubator, which is where we're going to be investing in advising a group of brands that come follow our process. And the person said to me. You'RE GONNA WANNA do like a really big launch out of the gate name again. FIVE MILLION DOLLARS And they said, but you need to find a way to sell this in a way that gets better over time and doesn't require you to the exact same thing that you did this time again next. That completely may be changed the approach of okay. If I want to be selling this five years from now, ten years from now, how I need to sell this now, because one was stacking the deck for really big launch right now but no long-term momentum but another would require me to go really small right now. But played me a better position five to ten years from now. And so there was a little bit an ego pill that I needed to swallow in order to make the decision of how am I going to promote this in a way that will be growing five years from now. On. All my cards in here and then have nothing to be doing the exact same thing five years from now. So if you can think about five ten years from now and do those things now you will get even better results even in the short. So that's that's. The one thing that I wish I could pass on every entrepreneur. How do you A.? It's interesting. Said this. We interviewed Steven Kotler the other week. Flow resurgent totally butters long company name but he was he said something about how when you envision yourself years I think it's passed like two or three years he started disassociate with that being you.

It's like weight loss you want WanNa. Go lose one hundred pounds or whatever. In the three year plan, are there any things? that. You would do to stay on course or motivates yourself for someone else for? Vision light that yes. So you brought up weight losses, the example So I I worry about one eighty right now at the end of a bulk I, WANNA come down about one sixty and I was telling somebody I realize now that I don't have to lose twenty pounds I have to maintain one sixty.

So, you actually had a huge impact on the trajectory of our business. So you you had a podcast I believe it was one where Mike Dillard interviewed you and you guys talked about the concept of platform building build a big platform focused on building the platform, and then once you built it, then you can monetize by selling affiliate products or even taking equity and people's companies right and we heard that podcast I listened to the whole thing. I actually took notes on the podcast told. The podcast sent him my notes that I took on the podcast and that sort of shaped what we did with our business model we decided let's go and build a podcast. Let's build a huge audience once we have a huge audience, then we can go and leverage that audience into sort of rev share advisory deals, things like that into other companies, and that's literally what we've done over the last we've been in business together for thirteen years but. That's the last four years of our business is growing this podcast building the platform, and now we've actually got equity positions in two different software companies that has been pretty lucrative, and that was sort of something that that interview that you did with Mike.

"You can get results for people you can have a lot more people buying from over and over again referring you telling everyone about what you and your business starts to take off. How did you you raise the capital to start this business? That's now taking off and doing so. Well did you. Did you have to mow long long. Did you have to sell a kidney. Did you have to small business loan. I mean what was your your path to funding this business. To be honest you know ice funded it with a couple. Oh box basically went from there. You know it does not necessarily take a huge amount of money especially if you're in the expertise in education space like I am you. You don't need a lot to get started it's really about you your clarity finding mentors finding support. Finding step-by-step systems. It's not like other. Businesses is like brick and mortar or e commerce or software where Yucky need huge investment of capital to start up and the interesting thing is Forbes predict see online online education industry is going to be a three hundred twenty five billion dollar a year industry by the year. Twenty twenty five and it's already over two hundred million so it's a massive industry but it takes probably unless start up money and capital than any other industry out there. How did you go about getting your first ten customers? Did you just walk in and show him demos of your work or did you did you. Cold Call did you network. How did you get your first ten customers? Great question well. I actually started out having a branding and web design agency and I still have that branding and web design agency as well as all of our programs and services and a lot of times I went to events I went to business events and I networked and I met people and they became came my first clients and I did a great job so they wanted to refer me to other people. It was basically being out in the world. Meaning people getting out from behind your computer and talking to Real live human beings. Are you saying we should get out from our real. We should get move our bodies from behind or a screen and meet actual humans. Yes I am. Let's that's controversial. Now here's the we are credible. We have an incredible reoccurring guests on the show. Here Mr Mr West Carter. He's an attorney. His law firm represents huge huge personalities people in Ministry Space West going to interrogate miss incredible. Yesterday's Miss Marita. Just a second but before you interrogator think about that question that controversial question you want to ask or they think of think long and hard about it now Maria. He's going to ask you a tough question but I'll go first here. Did what kind of things that you say when you went to these networking events. Did you shake hands. Did you food tell people. You'll shoot a video for half off. Or how did you get the conversation going well. I really teach people how to dial into their message and how to answer that question the first time that they meet someone. But ideally you want to speak in a way that they understand that you understand their problems and their challenges and how to solve them or you. You create intrigue by offering a picture of the world and what's possible that maybe excites them in empowers them and get some curious about what you have to offer so so. It's really about that. It's really about understanding who your customers are. How you uniquely serve them what challenges they have and speaking to that not speaking from what you do but speaking to what they want? Do you remember any of the early phrases that you said or any of the little language is said when you're first getting out there getting your first ten customers. Yeah well I do say so when people ask me what I do I want. I sometimes say I turn entrepreneurs and all superheroes they actually like. It intrigues Zam. What it does what it call it jams? What I call the P.? Touch inside of the brain so the P. touches that little labeling machine that has people stick a label on you the basically says Oh. She's a business coach or she's a website designer or whatever it happens to do and as soon as they think they know what you're about. There's no more motivation vacation. Ask questions so I like to turn the P.. Touch into the MIDAS touch in really help people get curious about what I do. I would say things like that which would just get them. Curious serious versus have them think that they already know what I'd do okay. I'm going to try this out here. West Carter's attorney and they've represented a big personalities. Td Dj Joyce Meyer. Craig Rachelle a lot of people the ministry space but west. You're more than just a legal superstar in the ministry space. You happen to be my attorney journey and for that I apologize. What question do you have for? Miss Marita by muted. You mind passive aggressive Western you back. I'm back now while I'm passive aggressive. Sorry about that and so i. I'm curious in the creative space. A lot of this I consumer originally came from your mind so as you're building and you're scaling this out. How do you protect some time freedom for other projects or your personal time time since kind of an area where it's so personal to services you're providing crush? Do you teach other people to do it. Do you hire other rockstars. Do you just work one hundred hours a week. How it doesn't look as you grow and scale? Yeah we'll talk about the four stages of business growth going from what I call. Blue skied a call me to list bill to authority. And I like to say that before you can make money while you sleep. I you've got to be able to make money while you're awake. So a Lotta Times recommend that my students and clients start off by serving people but one one but very quickly once you start to fill the one on one practice going into one to few small group programs and things like that in ultimately into one too many where you can have thousands of customers at once in as you kind of make that progression from Blue Sky into the list built on authorities stages you also awesome to build your team. You start to hire on other facilitators if you're on online education other coaches other people to support your vision. I mean my personal goal was within three years from now to be completely irrelevant. Like that means that actually let me change. That word is not a relevant. I'm still still relevant but the I get to choose when and how I show up and if in how I show up so if I don't want to show up to something I have plenty of other other people on my team who can show up for me. I'm still exciting. I'm still a draw and all of that but I don't need to be the front person all the time. So yeah so so you're obviously you're a rockstar especially in your marketing for Your Business. Knows we flip through the website. Your name your image. Do you ever get clients. Is that say oh I was hoping research show up not not so and so and how. How do you handle it just kind of our listeners? How do you handle that because otherwise you know my experiences experiences and talking to listeners? Sometimes we just get overwhelmed and we lose control of our schedule and all of a sudden we're doing all these engagements. We'd rather not do how you had to work that work through that before you well. Yeah for example. If it's a private clients Someone who wants private time with me. Okay Great Marita. You can work with Maria starting at fifteen thousand dollars a day or one hundred hundred thousand dollars a year. If that's not in your investment level than we've got programs we get to interact engage with her in a group setting right or we've also trained a whole bunch coaches if that's not in your price range either. That probably gets them on a different path pretty quickly unless they have that kind of money to spend. Yeah what what now. When did you realize that? Live your message dot com. That your your brand was going to actually be solvent in sustainable. When did you get that tracks where you thought I can actually go to sleep and not be stressed out? When did when did that happen well? I still stressed sometimes to to be a hundred percent hottest and but let me see. I think that my original business was called be seen boldly and you know I teach people a lot about really positioning themselves in the market and that just didn't get people excited almost the very first week launched. Live your message back in I believe it was twenty. Eleven people started to respond to me differently. Almost immediately. It's like the brand itself. The message itself had cachet and knowing that I had the capability to excite people. Both what I was saying almost feels like the keys to the kingdom so everything else from going from zero to one hundred seventy five thousand dollars a year. One hundred seventy eighty five thousand and a half a million half a million two million a million to two to three three to four. You know all of that stuff is growth but really was cracking that original code. It's what I call all this sort of the the DNA of what you're all about and when you've got that DNA than a lot of the rest of it is strategy in its marketing but getting to that core or DNA is where I think a lot of people either. Never take the time to get the clarity. Or they're just a bit off in what they're working on. Where do you call home now? We're are you at right now. I live into Panga Canyon which is just outside of Los Angeles in California so I live surrounded by nature. I go hiking every single day and and I work.
