"Your personal brand. That means produce content and spend media Tampa FAI it. The biggest mistake people making right now is to relying on organic on their personal brand because that feels like the right thing to do. There's almost like this badge of honor of, like they get their traffic from organic. It's actually the reverse. It's super non strategical move to not amplify media. When media's underpriced? You should be spending as much money as you can afford amplifying your content on Lincoln. We'll be cannabis yet. Yeah. I have a I have a forty nine percent share in a company called Greenstreet out of Los Angeles. We've taken some form of intermediate employees now work working there. It's an agency. It's a conference business called hall of flowers, which we own a piece of, and we own pieces of equity of brands we start with other individuals. You know. So there. Invested in them. It's cannabis delivery, which is exploding as a business model everywhere. Yeah. So we bought one hundred fifty smart cars inserted, distribute them all crops, California, Nevada. And the interesting thing now that we're up against is like, obviously, you can't use Facebook. You can't use it search, but that's just that's sucks for us because we know it. But I keep trying to remember this is literally my favorite thing that's going on. Right now is the cannabis conversation of before Facebook, and there were other things. One hundred percents, just go find those could also do influence marketing. Yeah. Like all my friends, and since I'm really in it, and, you know, two years ago when I came into it like there was a legitimacy factor that the market, appreciate it. And I was like look like it's here's the punchline everybody. I was just at the hall of flowers conference, every person who came up to me and said, Gary, what the fuck I can't Facebook's fucking meal fucking you? They have a term of service. You don't think they want your money. They're trying to figure it out. So instead of crying about what you can't do. Do why don't you spending all your time training for figure out what you can do? You can start the number one podcast in the world around cannabis and Dominy. This is going to be great for cannabis businesses because the drug of the current unbelievable success of being sucked into an Instagram. Facebook world is something they're not going to get high on which is going to allow them to innovate and create something they own instead of fucking renting. Question for you. If you don't mind. So I'm addicted to starting new businesses, they'll tell you. Yes, as well. So how do you make your current team feel like you're not going to abandon them? Or is not abandoning them. Obviously, and I mean they know just Audi by now but it's like. Let's look one hundred percent will work for me is, I would say, things over and over. They mainly didn't believe it. And then overtime is things happened. They believed that more, and that's how you build a reputation. You know it's funny how basic and it's like, what are you gonna do, like hypnotize them? Like like. No, no. But I'm I'm making people around or like you know, because it's still not you, right. How do you make sure they know that you're not going to ban them? That doesn't come in the form of hiring me. Hey, I'm here. I'm like that, that makes it seemed like they you're going to abandon the, you know, like, here's coral. He's really important on the stock.

"Because I love when people like, oh, I, I thought of Uber before Uber. That's great. Johnny, like, like what does that mean? Like of people talking about shit. I knew I knew snap stock was going to go. What does that even mean I'm in the business of putting my mouth, my money where my mouth is maybe that's what you're looking for. Do you know what I mean? Would you want to going for me, just because you like concentrating? And that's amazing. That's phenomenal. I think it's a great desus. I think it's an incredible thesis that you should focus on something and see at home. How about the fact that I got these enough for that same macro rationale or you could be me, which is you love throwing up forty seven plates, and you're comfortable if sixteen collapse because you like thirty one plates. More than one. The takeaway of challenging us into Julie one hundred percent is that the mind that it's always been fun. Actually, that's right. That's where that. Honestly, that you just made me so happy if, if you can get into legacy curiosity process, over Bank account, I don't think I've ever really known how much money I've had ever. I've no clue right now. Enough to be dangerous to make sure it's enough to not be dead. But like when you're process. Is the game here in a much better place? You're welcome. We may sched health and I heard. The big thing that I teach them when we teach another companies to build drives two thousand raving fans around that one, but I understand because the monetization against versus one hundred thousand that don't give a fuck means nothing. And so as I go to realize they can't monetize coaching because very few people paying for high in coaching said before people pay for tangibility. Pay for improvement. Yeah. And the Pete and oftentimes like where really becomes an interesting to be a lot of people, depending on their wired. For example, I can get a lot of money for coaching. I don't want to. So there's two groups ones that can't and there's ones that subconsciously actually don't want to because an enormous percentage of people that pay for coaching are paying for the feeling that they're fixing something versus actually trying to fix it. One of the reasons I really struggled with a lot of people, I know is their bottom feeding on people. And so you got to figure out which group it's important question for you. When you meet somebody, you're like, hey, you can do this. It's either that they can't fill the pipe with valuable enough content or actually, they'd be more like me, which is interesting which is they just don't feel good about it. It's an important part, whereas, I'm thrilled to sell a hoodie, or sneaker or lack of wine. And most people don't rise. It's also very important to analyze your costumer coaching very tough. When, you know, the person's looking for a quick fix and the majority one hundred thousand percent the end and then what it does is takes people out of their truth. Because there are why is the coaching business. So we've come to be very ambiguous basements, which is we have next. Next. Pods to. There is now been doing trucks and connected to help them actually deliver their coaching full free that try and then monetize on citizens. Homeless supplements. Bill, recovering stuff. So good to question for you. Not for us to do that. I need to get myself into the software space to allow them a platform to do that Trump. Okay. That's, that's what I'm starting to feel two hundred coaches that we have, if engine, we'll have one what Laden software that they used to deliver today, tried that can then open up the door for them to for them to segue feeling of products..

"Expectations up front, which takes humility. From the person. The, the thing that most people are unable to see about me until the really get closer is the humility part, that comes along with the confidence. You know. You know. Takes the personal brand. Some christian. Listen. Push what he, please. And I highly respect everyone goes, and got Oscar bait and is wonderful enough about themselves physician because I'm feeling this. I'm kind of tired of the end demand. Please we assume that the name for the best in the world. And. A long time to get quicker. Is his what happens? Well that makes super happy. He used. He would get serious relationships. We decided by house. You talk a lot about the national success metrics. Yep. A movie hip, Dan. I'm telling you, I mean, I mean it Indian culture Russian culture, I sustain shit. Obviously, there's a couple that outline, but like stuff to prove you won is how humans are wired. Go ahead. So we bought a house. We if he started to doubt that was the time when I work in the company because there was a lot of her shop, and there was a deadly depreciate, so I understand cool. So maybe the public is maybe talking about that. And so one day when we had to pop straight through lubick down and two houses down a mufti mentioned. This is about nine months later. There was an open house. We will in the house, and he has like. Should by this house. By I wanna make sure Peng this, you buy a house, two houses over nine months earlier. Right. Yep. You, you at that same time are starting the business, and it's starting to work. I understand it starting to work like good things happening in the business. You're starting to see the early indications of something. Good is happening. So what you do with those early indications is the side that you should buy, the bigger house that makes that makes a ton of sense to me, keep going. And so he's a drain on the believe. Unlike this house's third times of what current houses if you think we can do it. Let's do it. We signed the papers thirty two weeks later to buy this house. In the meantime, the same agent sell out house in life. And. Gustav account and that was a second. Slide inwards and sustain for. So it's not just like from that might have had nothing to do with the houses, by the way, the might have dipped in the house. I understand I understand, but like the, the growth might have not happened because you're under pressure in might have been because you're right about the thesis of what you were doing. I want to test that good. Now, the so. Uncomfortable. And you wanna make do something more uncomfortable. If you play a game if let me say one thing, and I don't know if this very going, but I'm just jump in, because I like to do that. If you're gonna play a game of like every time we put ourselves in macro pressure that we are this United front emotionally and financially in strategically. We have big spikes of growth, you're going to pick wrong one day. And liu. So don't make that your thesis this shore and figure out how to create pressure in a different way that isn't financially. Yeah. Yeah. So now we have financial pressure. Okay. We understand you've grown into being able to afford it easier. I get it understand just enjoying what we do. Okay. Now business card. Is it? As exciting. Of course, it makes sense, but that might not have anything to do with the pressure..

"I was like this is gonna suck because what entitled kids don't like is, when you cut off their credit card like like the kids that you by Mercedes foreign high school pay for their college unlimited Uber. Unlimited equinoxes and the first year at college, you buy them their apartment and you get them unlimited Uber continues and you got them their job when you decide because you're apparent that decides that for some reason twenty three's, the year a kid gets cut off that kid fucking shits on you like crazy because he didn't condition them. I have a little sister so so so that happened. So I think I think if you get your that to me is the framework, if you can get your timing, right from over coddling culture safety. Yes, heart and you can make that transition to merit. And every company is different every leader's different. You know, I missed the Mark here, which I hope will make me not miss the Mark next time. It's but here's why do it. I missed the Mark or companies never been healthier today over correcting from when you create too much entitlement is a hell of a lot better than establishing a company that is a Solis financial machine. You're never injecting culture into that. So the seed matters. So in terms of over communication. So for the first in college all the way till I exited my first business, I was pretty much solo. And so it doesn't come natural. Right. Try to figure out your way. Maybe maybe, you know, maybe it's phone calls. Maybe it's hiring chief heart officer like making an investment to culture now and giving her or him disproportionate power. Record. Cool. Cool. I want to live with more of, you know, hun. Have you guys managed your accounts because there's a time when you're younger, younger company are you have, you know, eight an analyst, managing today counts? Right. And then how do you go about making that transition into one to one or two one? Carefully. And when you were asking that, are you asking financially or like how the account gets used to it or the people themselves, like give me the all of the above? I think I think that uses answer with over financial they paid more therefore they get, you know, where people. Yes, but more of like a parking company in culture because it's two completely different strokes. I've worked at other agencies somewhere I've managed ton of accounts. Some mid-size were down this for one client, only, so, but I've never been in any transition for one to one another. So I think that's what you concern that transition. I don't know that's considered. Well, that's, that's a that's what's really good about this question. I think it's a good theoretical question. And I think it's less scary in real life, which is why I asked that, which is why, I'm glad the way you answered. I think you're worried about the boogeyman. You know what I mean? Like I think I think he's trying to be thoughtful, which is amazing. It's what you want from leaders to begin with. So that's a good tell. But I think you know, hey Carl you're on seven accounts now. You're on four. There's, you know, some people might get like, are you worried about the internal park like the actual employees that work for you? Like trip making that transition. Sure, I mean it could be. Yeah, because it's a completely different mindset. Yeah. I think it's a boogeyman thing really. I do. Like it's a it's a different mindset that either that person can do or can't do. You're not gonna know if they can get, you know, a lot of these, you know what I mean? I think people prep for things..

"Twenty four months ago where like what your portfolio look like with female founders, and I could see was bubbling up, and I remember thinking, like this is gonna be awesome. Because I was really in a good place, but it was really funny. I was in a good place, not by being a noble man or like trying to be fair. It was out of my general thesis of the other way it was my disrespect it was, my it was me being. What's the word? I'm looking for it. Well, no, sorry, I used the word because it was mean being, I was stereotyping men, even though I'm a nurturing dude. I was stereotyping men for not being, I was being very, very basic. Women are, you know, but I actually believe it, I believe. That over nurturing emotionally a business in the first three to four years is remarkably underrated. All feelings all kumbaya. I mean, you've got to pay the bills you gotta get through. But I think that's where if you can help and I don't know you well enough if you can put a lot of the financial onus on yourself and it's very cliche. That's why I asked you. Did you start it? I like good. He's going to be able to do this because he was like, when you're the person that is the thing that I you know, it like that's the you can't imagine how fun it is to walk through this company knowing that means the CEO is the best practitioner of social media work. There is no executive that I'm scared of in my own company. It's very powerful. Most executives lose touch with reality or never had in the first place. They just thought of a business idea, and like their partner was the one that made the bread, you You know. know, so as much onus and pressure on you to allow to establish that culture. And then we're I missed the Mark was in year five. When we were here when we first move in here. Three. Three right. Three. It's the rate three will be in August, right? Yeah. So, what are we in one thousand nine hundred sixteen I took five years in. I I did it. So I waited one year too long to make the transition from over nurturing to merit, which then creates entitlement, and I had a I had a very difficult time unwinding that it took me a good year and a half because I go up thirty people to make the statement, rip the band aid that fucked up every, I mean, you would have thought that like it was the great depression. Hear people yelling at me and all hands on in my own place to be like fuck you. But, you know, I made the mistake I waited a year a year and a half, too long to go from lovey-dovey YouTube. He's like, hey, you're I make fun of entitlement. Don't let your kids win. They play trophies. But I missed the Mark here by year year and a half and the moment, I realized that I was like, I just remember going through that in my own mind..

And then kind of threes and why we came are brought them is were really young marketing agency. Yes. Really January wanted this year congrats things. So it's more of starting well for us. Yeah. Versus coming to you in two years going shit. I wasted a quarter million dollars on this and heard thousand dollars on that. That's right. That's exactly right. You can go back to where you were, if you even were ever in between ten and twenty full timers not we weren't, and I started my company in a conference room of another company like we were like people like kind of continue to forget that, when you from ground zero for, like thirty friends, or no respect. We were we were small per longtime, because the first two years, I was pretty passive. I mean, I think when I took over two and a half years in, I think we're less than thirty. That's all. That's awesome. Yeah. We, we got crazy when I started running at full time. I just love hiring people. That's not a joke. So good. Yeah. So if you can think back then. Yeah I mean couple core things this proportionate over communication, with every single person. That's in it like the game changing reason why being or media still fundamentally strong is how close I was to the first hundred employees. It's still permanents Il. We were Ted later of like old vein or new. There's many things that will come from it later. But it is the num- honestly, it's raising a child over loved the fuck out of your kid in the first four years and see ridiculous dividends later like later, you can worry about entitlement. But at four they kick entitled just love the fuck out of them later, you can not let them win like I do. Now, you know, but in the beginning, and they'll cry does every day, but but because they're getting used to, like, what is this? I'm so, you know, but over so it's you're, you're the guy you have to build a real relationship with all of them. Thanks for the post you position. You have to build a real relationship, and, and you have to manage all of them differently. You have to manage them based on them not based on year and you sometimes the one at first everyone wants. There's a million things at twelve and twenty like you're going to have that awesome culture like people going to stay later. Your closest fuck cut out the cancer quick. If you by accident fucked up and hired somebody, you gotta get, you know, give her or him real the only time I'm pretty radical candor is when they're a singular cancer in a small group where I'm like, hey, like, nobody likes you. Well, I'm the best employees like cool. I'm still going to fire you the best employees isn't the one who makes the most money or the client likes the best. It's the holistic best and all eleven people in this office. Don't love the way your rolling. So that's important early cancer is important because it keeps like positive by a very nervous. I think I think the first four years of company are disproportionately nurturing. You know, it's, it's actually really funny. I. There was a period in two thousand eleven twelve when I was investing in pretty heavily female Centric, startups. Birch box, and Mick MAG, all these companies and later became such a part of our culture of like there was a moment..

You cannot look at the gross of that revenue and related to what they earn. There's this misconception. Oh, your business. You're rich. No. Entrepreneurs small business has nothing to do with organized labor for those that sit in the big score building for those who lobbied for more and more more more more more more money.

And you know, with every new brand in an every new platform in even every new set of influencers that come along those are they do have to reevaluate sometimes redesigned. So it was a lot of figuring thing. Out. And since I was the only person that job. It's a building full of people who are looking to meet for those answers. And it's it's a lot.

So now, let's talk a little bit about the do's and don'ts of influence marketing and just overall how to work with brands. So let's take the influence or side for for a bit. Or just you know, the business small business entrepreneur, let's start with the ground work. So how do you even get into the space of having brands notice you what should you have in place? Tell us the framework. Sure. So I think, you know, everybody needs a website. I'm still amazed by people who don't have websites twenty eighteen I don't know how they got away with not having a domain, but you need a website. It doesn't matter. If your website has a ton of pages or one page it needs to be like a central place where people can find out who you are. What you look like what do you do? How can they work with you all of these things need to be? And most importantly, like how can the contact you as I've seen websites where I wanna book people, and there's no contact information on them. And don't know how you build a whole site that the most important. People people people do it, you know, where they have contact forms that don't work or Email addresses that are misspelled or hyperlink that don't actually go anywhere. Like, these are all things that you now people do to make it really hard to give the money and rule number one is never make it hard for people to give you money. You know, people people into that rule lot and on Instagram that another place where it's like have a bio that is an accurate description of who you are have a photo where people can see your face because people like to know who they're connecting with. And then put your contact information in your bio, if people don't realize Instagram on the desktop which most people don't use almost everybody uses Instagram uses it on their phone, but they don't realize that people who buck influencers talent for living. We use Instagram on the computer, and it's a different experience in teed. You know, your book was the first place that pointed that out to me, I was like I have the Email. But in why would if people talk about they can't find my Email? I have I so yes, your book was the first place that, you know, gave me that lightbulb moment. Now live people have these these ingredients in place, they put up a website with some WordPress themes. They got their Instagram layout going. How how people standing out these days? Like, I feel like everyone wants something works. Everyone catches onto it. And they use the same filters. Everyone starts copying each other. Yes. I think now the real, you know, as with other places in the industry where you're using a lot of content. The focus is really on storytelling people the way to stand out. Now is to be able to write a story. If you see a lot of influences cannot string together a sentence. It's just emojis emojis, and like, you know, strange questions, and if you are brand new you're paying a lot of money, you need them to be able to tell a story, and you can't just say like, I really liked this shampoo and conditioner..
"small business entrepreneur" Discussed on The Model Health Show
"But I've heard I've been I've been sharing this for about twenty years and against create this this actual model is Edward de Bono. But I've heard so many great testimonials from people and great amazing stories about their relationship about their health about big decisions. They had to make about where they're gonna live and their career. And it makes sense. Right. Absolutely. You're not stuck in one point of view. Exactly, exactly. What was going to say because we tend to get stuck in our way of thinking, and we have access to so many different ways. As of thinking like inherently NS in. So it's just having first of all just giving permission like you just did to think differently in. Here's how you do it, you know, put on this hat in look at this situation. And so for myself, personally, I just wanna share this. I'd started to get more into this kind of. Fact-based thinking, you know, about certain decisions in my life. That's that's a big part of my natural approach. But there's also the big feeling part. And I started to lessen the feeling part in. So I was going on more things of you know, these are things that I should do logically speaking, right? But they didn't feel right. And lo and behold when I keep taking steps in that direction, it just didn't work out. Right. Because I wasn't acknowledging literally your feelings often times to give you direct feedback. But you cannot just get caught up in your feelings because feelings can be very temporary or so so I love this kind of whole brain whole being thinking, and man, thank you so much for sharing that this is like blow my mind, absolutely, Sean. I would encourage also when everyone's listen to this. This doesn't have to just apply to your life. This works really well for teams. So let's say, you know, your your your business. Let's your small business entrepreneur of a small group of five. Individuals on your team, and you're facing something that's a, you know, an issue in your industry or something internally. Like would she do this product or should you? You know, stop doing this show or whatever you need to do is get everybody in a room. And then take turns wearing these different hats. This is also great for parents to teach their children at an early age because it builds empathy it allows you to be even if I've had parents actually make out of, you know, different color pieces of paper like these actual hats. And they'll take their children's exercise children will have a question about school. The question about, you know, going to some whatever their decision is. And then you could play with us with them also as well. So it's not just your own benefit. You can do this with your team, your family, and and more is this something super valuable to for ourselves to practice, but also to teach and instill in other folks, this concept of divergent thinking and being able to really quote think outside of the box and just look at things from. All these different perspectives. It's so interesting how many creative solutions there are two the same problem. But when we're in it, we can think there's this problem in I don't know how to solve it when Hera like tens hundreds of different solutions forward, but we have to be divergent in it. So I love so much, and it's incredibly valuable skill to have right now when we're talking about skill base success. Meaning that your when we talked about a lot of jobs going overseas, or they're being a is gonna replace them or on automation is the three areas that computers aren't as easily going to be able to do that as three areas creativity, right, which is thinking process imagination right because think about the entertainment industry think about all these wonderful superhero movies when I geek out about that comes from somebody's imagination. And then the third thing a computer is not gonna be able to do as well as human at least not yet is strategy these and so be able to make. These kind of good decisions and solve problems. That's our value in society. An entrepreneur is nothing, but a professional problem solver. Right. They're taking challenges whether they're small life challenges or grand big challenges that are going on, you know, at the planet is facing right now..
