"Increase the value and decrease the pricing is the question. I kept asking myself, and so a lot of my coaching will be based around like a master core, so that a lot of it can be done at a lesser price was still out of contact with me, but it will allow more access, and it's more of a scalable model which serves the industry more, so it's neat to see what's available online and that's that's probably the upside the. Technology is that you can. You can multitask and leverage the message because some of the stuff really needs one on one interaction when we get into like the real. On when we're burn through the stomach lining about staff issues in some of that needs some one on one attention, but a lot of it does. So I'm automating a lot of the processes along the way so that there's kind of a continuous flow, and it's just not me getting on the phone every couple of weeks. My son pretty excited about it at so it's a way to turn eleven's lemonade and really serve industry at a at a greater level, but it's still still the same kind of principle based Yup. Start with the leader, and if you don't start with later, something will break once. You've figured out what personal mastery looks like the movement of people mastery at you make sure that you're making the most impact. On patients team and then last is the you know the nuts and bolts of the practice. If you've missed the first two I mean, it doesn't really matter because eventually, something is going to break I think the structure matters. It's really founded as you know in. The latest greatest research on what brings out the best in people what what is a great culture, look? At you create buying like you were talking about from team members to make sure that they're invested, but also you're giving them more than just a paycheck in the workplace. All that stuff is really important to me because I think we're moving into. An Hour. We're well past the industrial age, but we're bringing some trash. Enter practices. Hyper managing people giving them too many check listen not really tapping into their full potential, and there's better ways and the information age to. To tap into human potential, but the one thing I don't think it's going to be tolerated as just a plain old place where you punch a time clock, and you get a paycheck. If people don't find meaning in their work, particularly a you know younger generation like your generation I. Don't think it'll be tolerated. I don't think people will be willing to do that and they're already. You know the you know. The the the life span of the job is is getting less and less, and so you need to be competitive. Competitive and you want to be the laced at work in town, not the best analogous, but the place to work in town so if someone should decide to leave the you've got a little bit of a pipeline messed up. Really excites me. I. Think it's really important because I mean you've had miserable jobs. I've had miserable drives. Like what the hell am I doing like. The paycheck might be nice, but is it worth it and you stick with that question long enough and he say now it's not worth it so. organizations that serve patients. Serve Team members serve the doctor over and over and over again at increasing increasing levels as a question. I sit with every single day and I like to get that out. Do Dentists who want that thing right like I think we're really meant to serve, but we're not giving the blueprint on. How do we check? All these boxes that you mentioned to add staus business, owner, clinician, and excel at all of these, because no dentist wants to not feel. That sense of achievement. I don't I don't pack the dentists like you know I buying this practice I want to be really high level of clinical scale, and if it's just a meteoric business than so so be it like we're not wired that way. We want to have it all, but we've never seen is rare to see. It well executed on the people who view it execute. Execute it well are usually in their fifties and sixties and they've gotten. Their Butts kicked for twenty or thirty years I. Don't ask to be that way. Science shows something completely different man. That's the model that as Cert- made as other people, and so that's what it looks like, but just more on a tech based automated fashion, so that more people can get in touch with Price Point so that all and it'd be launching looking like September when that will really be on the market for people to. Entertain I. Mean there's a lot of good good advice out there, so it's just something if that resonates so be it if not also fun to something that works you know like what I told. My patients as a dentist like I. Need to be your dentist. You'd trust if that's not me I'm okay with that. Let's help you find another one most of them stayed, but some of them needed to find a dentist elsewhere that resonated with them. And serve them in a way that that worked. That clicked that that felt good. So that's that's me and that's my platform, and that's what they'll be doing for the foreseeable future. Yeah, but Baker asking. Wow, dude! I. Love What you said there about you kinda based it back to. You told your patients I don't need to be your dentist, but I want you to have one. That is your heart. Man I've seen Tom and Tom Again. You want to help people I. Think what you need to. If I appreciate. You start with the leader. There's a ton of awesome coaches out there and I've used infringe with many of them I. Don't know that there's another coach out there. Who's the dentist that coaches dentist that work on the person? You know not the clinician off the business, but start with the person and build the base around that. I think it's important. I didn't see it. I think two months in Dr Coaching Man. You know I. I told You I decided. I was going to do is start up because of the coaching that I did with you if it wasn't for that, I would still be an associate working at a job that I didn't necessarily love it and hate. But I knew there was something else inside that I wanted to create. That voice is quiet, but sometimes it yells sometimes it goes away, but it never it never abandons completely right, and so that's year. Purpose Steven Pressley talks a lot about that like where you're called, the do you must do? And sometimes we lose touch bad because there's more pressing things like make sure you make aero. That's all understandable, but the more we can get urgency, and it's. It's immunised far like with a friend like you to say like to start because I. Know you're GonNa. Lose Sleep. I know there's going to be pain. There's going. GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTMENT YOU'RE GONNA have an employee that you love that moves away or go somewhere else like I know all of that is going to happen right, but why do I promote? That is because what we long for as humans is autonomy, and the only way to really control your destiny is to have your own business and make an call the shots, and that comes with a sense of earning responsibility, but if you do it right, you can make more work less have feed all your other passions whether you travel or fishing or With your kids or all of the above right and you just can't do that the same level when somebody else's your boss..

Actually in the first half with ATTA MOFFITT. Just hit a rocket from terry yards out. And if you watch the slow motion replay I'm standing next And the ball like whizzes by me and I kinda like barely have any time to move to it but it just like it almost takes my head off and I'm wearing. I'm wearing a helmet to and I'm dyslexic. And we turn and just like you can see the slow motion reaction of everyone on the field of just like the actress happen.

"So we raise the lasting imprint of that. The last thing printed of that interaction that that individual had in that group maybe the people that sought lights it.

How much people in the future are going to join that route able to you know grow from that interaction? They're probably not it's down to scene. You know the next information coming up the thing is I. I think that there's a there is a gap. There's a whole void for this type of community that is going to learn together and take ownership of education and habit forming to make sense of clinicians. And they're going to have around helping push for the schools. I like it. Yeah I mean it's it's it's an online mimicking of that residency. Experience that you're talking about who?

"You and I we are at war certainly not with each other but right now at this very moment and we are on a battlefield and the stakes of this struggle could not be any higher that's because you are in this fight for the person that you were created to be the grow themselves their teams and their profits I'm your host Alex Judd and today's guest in a rare interview appearance is none other than Steven Pressley as one of the most prolific writers of our time Stephen has captured what he has learned about this battle in the war of art it is a book that everyone from Seth Godin to Oprah Winfrey has listed among the most impactful that they have ever read and just like any war this battle that you are in always begins when you identify the enemy as a writer which I am one of the first things that you realize so when you sit down to the blank page there's some kind of a force there that's kind of a repelling force trying to make you go have a drink or do something do anything else take the day off whatever and I always thought it was unique to meal on I thought well let me it must be the only one feeling this thing but when I wrote the war of art I gave a name to and I call that resistance with a capital are because that's what it took feels like to me it's like it's a resisting this forces invisible forces assisting my efforts to put something down on the page and two I thought when I wrote the war of art that it would be a book only for writers there's only riders would be interested yeah and I was kind of amazed to discover that other creative people actors photographers film people stuff like that and then was really interesting we realize that entre immerse which I had never even thought of but it does make sense anytime you try to move from a lower level to a higher level in your in on the soul level of your life in other words if you're if you're an artist you're trying to go from a blank canvas to a painting to something that's there this force of resistance appears to stop you or to try to stop you and it seems to me that many many many millions of people have been needed by this and didn't even know that it existed didn't even have a name took that may be part of the sinister part of it is that you can go your entire life without even realizing this exists absolute I certainly never knew what resistance kind of kicked my butt for like about seven years I would say of you know kind of a dark I'd journey where before I sort of realized there is this force that nobody told me in school nobody taught me about anywhere and I better learn to get a handle on us if I'm ever going to be able to do my work how do people experience resistance just data day okay it's a great question it's the voice in your head and the voice in your head says something like you're a bomb your loser if you're let's say you're going to write a book it says what did you get the idea that you could write this book this idea hasn't been done a thousand times you're never gonNa do it already heard this voice before choice right but it's a voice of discouragement and stuff like that it's a fear is it's constant thing you know you're you're gonNA fail you're going to embarrass yourself what where do you come off thinking you can pull this thing off the trick about resistance is that when you hear this voice in your head you think it's your own thoughts you think it's your own objective thoughts like your objectively analyzing your own capacities but it's not your objective it's it's resistance it's this this force that exists and I can tell you from all the feedback I've gotten the voice of resistance is the same in everybody's Ed except that it so diabolical that it can tailor itself to use specifically it'll tell you you're too fat to have a show don t odell or you know or you're too old or your to uglier your to this now what would a college you can't start that exactly exactly that's fascinating I think to your point I can think back points in my own life where I will experience what you're talking about but a look at it and I'll call it me being real realistic or me being rationed tackling in other words you're believing this voice in your head that it's you it's your thoughts you know they say I'm sorry to interrupt l. go for it they say you know in meditation I'm not a big meditators but from what I've read that you sit there and you're trying to empty your mind thoughts and these thoughts keep coming in they're usually just distracting dumb thoughts and you think they're your thoughts but in fact as a meditation teacher teach you they're just kind of generic chatter and you just really want to just let them kind of go and pass right through clouds splashing across the sky and it's the same with that voice that you heard in your head and so it can take many forms I know you already mentioned it it seems like it can take the form of something material physical you're eating something that you're drinking maybe not going to them it can be a voice it takes many forms is that takes many forms but usually it's add voice in your head or that feeling of fear in your belly you know I guess for entrepreneurs if you're thinking of starting a business or taking business to the next level that's another case of kind of advancing on the soul level going from a lower level to a higher level and resist since is going to kick in and that voice will stay to you you know what do you dream that you're going to pull this off you know you great at this level maybe you can't take it to the next level etc era and so do you believe that at any given point in their life everyone has experienced whether consciously or unconsciously everyone has -perienced what it's like to be trapped by resistance I think so I mean obviously can't look at it everybody's brain but I certainly got a million times a feedback from I'm from people in it's always the same voice in always the same phenomenon what did that look like for you can you take us to the point in your life where you may be crossed over for I'm being unconsciously to consciously aware that you're being trapped by this thing well for me it was the first novel that I ever tried to write as a young guy I worked for about two years on it was like ninety nine point nine percent of the way through and this some dead the devil or whatever I just blew it up blew it up and blew up my entire you know I was married at blew up my marriage bumper-to-bumper sabotage yes that's exactly the word fact resistance is self the cash and that sort of sent me off on kind of a downward spiral that carried me to a lot of places I didn't want to go and finally I should sort of just sort of realized that there there was this force and that it had taken me by surprise I wasn't ready for it if I had known that was coming it would have been a different story and I sort of said I've I've just got it like an alcoholic somebody realizing that they have a problem with alcohol where you sort of admit to themselves I've got a problem this is more than I can handle that sort of was my realization that and I thought it was unique to me at that time I didn't realize that it was universal but but it is so universal affects anyone trying to do something meaningful what what is it keeping us from it's almost like you grab it as this thing that has this motive and then you say like we're all engaged in this war that we're fighting so what are we fighting four that the enemy or the resist census keeping us from I'm a believer that we all come into this life with a calling with work that we have to do it might be artistic work or it might be entrepreneurial work it might be something might be raising children were might be something you know helping people in in one way or another but we do have our work that we should be doing and resistances entire job in my opinion is to stop us from doing our work that voice that it says you're not worthy you're not good enough that's just trying to stop us or another example friend of Mine Nick Murray is an advisor to financial Oh planners and apparently the big thing that you do in the financial planning world and I'm sure this is true in a lot of entrepreneur things is cold calling prospecting yeah and brings up enormous resistance apparently you know to make that horrible cold call or honest to sell anything thing yeah always brings up a little bit of fear in San so that force is the force of resistance in Knicks terms trying to advise financial planners he believes that he's really saving people's lives financially kind of like Dave Ramsey and the whole system out here of trying to get people to act rationally in terms of money in terms of their planning at so in other words it's a positive goal it's a movement from a lower level to a higher level and instance comes in making those cold calls doing those other sort of entrepreneurial steps how did you define what you're calling was is that it was keeping you from and then I'd love for you to share with us what what is your calling what is your work to do Steiner writer and so you know that blank page there is resistance personified and of course for writers were for artists manifested many many other ways it's still feel that way when you see a blind never gets any easier everything for fifty years never the only way it gets easier is that you know you've defeated it in the past but it never gets any easier fact it gets a little more diabolical because I almost can personify resistance it seems it's it's an intelligent force that can adapt and be creative and change shapes and shift shapes so yeah it doesn't get easier no so how do you define your calling okay I'm Steven and I'm a writer how did you figure that out My first the job was as a copywriter in advertising New York I'll give you the long answer and I had a boss named Ed Hannibal who quit and wrote a novel in a novel was hit so I said to myself my own I do that I'll do the same thing so fun in other words it's sort of started with a kind of a dumb really oh level aspirations even completely naive no concept of what any what it was involved was it tied to a passion no or was in advertising in the first place as a writer was I I wanted to be quote unquote creative I just felt like I'm a verbal personal visual person let me do something that people will like time I could not quit I always would come back to it and little by little by little you know force I'm sure this is true for all writers and artists as they start self belief is really the hardest thing to be able to say I'm a writer probably took me twenty five years at some point I was able to say even I have not succeeded at this yet I'm a writer this is what I do this is my calling this is what I'm aiming for okay so we see that all the time it is a mountain and for people to scale when they go from just other people calling them a leader to them sung I am a leader in responsible for for leading people sometimes they can be in presidents of companies that the people that I've talked to that have been I mean we look to his influential but they're not willing to call themselves a leader is that I mean why do we do that why do we not see ourselves in that way or why are we not willing to self identify a great question I think it's just resistance did a speaking the thing yesterday for the first time I've ever done in one of the things I said to sort of boil it down quickly is that we live on kind of a lower level here on the material world and you is this dark force of resistance and although are calling is summoning us to come up to be a leader to be a writer to be whatever it is and we on the bottom or arriving upward there's this force in the middle who sole role to block us you know to block the higher level from reaching us and block us from reaching the level so I think that's you know when someone has a real hard time embracing idea of I'm a leader I think that's it it's this force and that could almost yeah I mean I look at that and I think man that's Kinda negative view or all facing this force but then I think about the fact that that we're all facing that force by knee sure kind of means that we're all called to something like we all have this is like I want to make a difference everyone wants to make a difference I think it's absolutely true sometimes we underestimate ourselves and others but I think it's a mistake everybody has something to offer to offer and it's a lot of it is not a modest something it's a big something you know in your time speaking with people about this and hearing people talk about how your book connected with them how do you look in the mirror and self evaluate how do you look in the mirror and say hard for me Yeah and how do you look and say okay I'm doing what I was created to do versus man I'm trapped by this the thing and to a degree may be subconsciously getting the best of me and I'm not even aware of it right now that's a good question certainly there was a point in my evolution as a writer where I really sort of hit my stride and I began prior to that either is it right either I was running away from doing other kind of stuff arrives in some sort of shadow career that was kind of at the side of it like say advertising something like that or I was writing for other people as writing gigs for other people but there hasn't been a point where for me at least I started writing my own stuffs because I really felt like I'm writing from from my own heart and I think that higher level and I'm talking about is wants us to do that and there is gotten out of my own way I'm not stopping myself anymore sabotaging myself anymore now it's just for me it just kind of a question of what is the next best staying the next the next leap for me the next challenge for me rather than doing something that would be off to the side and not really on track so I I think I've experienced this.

You know it was no. You have no idea i went. I went back and forth like before actually just doing lenient even after lead it then the next day after it's released. Isn't you know an amazon best dialing like five different amazon bestselling in categories and that was completely off my radar but more so than that the people who have reacted to the book and comes to me with pictures and messages emails telling me what the problems mean to them. That's the ultimate rewards. That's that's what it's it's all about and it's just been such a beautiful experience. I even the public that i am. It's nearly impossible to put into words.

"Every twenty four hours and here are the results during this time the two hundred or so sales, not great, but not bad certainly not glamorous reach a lot more people with my podcast, and why I think that it worked out like this one didn't really push it. I talked about that, just a single announcement. I didn't go to people ahead of time. I went to people that day to make sure the promotion went live because I'd never done this again. I'm trying this out. I don't know that this thing's going to work who knew if it was even going to be worth promoting. So I didn't go to people ahead of time. I think the big reason that didn't sell more books is because podcasters and also people. Listen to podcasts. People who would hear about this book through this podcast. You like audio you like audio that is the way you like to consume media. So a lot of people write me. Hey, we're the audio book while there is no audio book. There's a digital version that comes on KENDALL. There's a paperback version audiobook, though. That's coming. And the reason it's been delayed. I'm not going to sugarcoat this, this is a big book. It's four hundred sixty two pages and looked at it. And I said, I've gotta read this thing. Nelly do have to read it. I've got to read it perfectly. I've already read it probably five or seven times going through at different revisions, and obviously, I wrote it. So I know the content in and out. But it is kind of intimidating to think I need to step into a studio probably going to be ten eleven twelve hours of finished audio and usually, I've got a four to one, maybe a five to one ratio when it comes actually getting the content on tape doing the at its I wouldn't necessarily be editing this audio, but I am going to have to voice it because again I eat my own cooking. And if you're going to have your book you need to read your own book, it's like your podcast needs to be done in your voice. This book is written in my voice, it's not going to have the same affect if a higher voice over guy to read it, it needs to be me, so not bad. Two hundred sociale single announcement here. Single announcement to an Email list announcement me on linked in Facebook posted it on a few social media channels. And then let him our friends. No. That's not bad. Somebody mentioned and I talked about this on my newsletter. If you get my newsletter that if I had written a book, I would want to make more money and I can't disagree with that guy. Yeah. You wanna make more money with the money isn't necessarily from sales, and the payoff, the paycheck, that you get Steven Pressley talks about this. That's not necessarily money. Sometimes the paycheck is just reaching people, and I want to reach people with this message. That is why I'm doing this podcast. That's why I wrote the book in the first place another reason I decided to do. This promotion was that. I wanted my books attached to other podcasting books. So think about how I promoted this offer just a podcast is just two people. I'm a mail list people. Listen to build a big podcast through podcasting, people, that I know who reach podcasters, those podcasters, if they're going to buy my book have likely purchased other books about podcasting. And because of that, the Amazon algorithm is going to connect my podcasting book with those other podcasting books. And it's going to come up on Amazon dot com site in two places. One people viewed this item also viewed this item, people have you'd podcast book, a also viewed big podcasts by David Hooper, people who purchased this item podcast book, a also purchased big podcast by David Hooper. I wanted more of those links on Amazon, not unlike apple podcasts when you pull up the I tunes app on your MacIntosh on your PC. You'll see people who subscribe to this podcast also subscribe to these podcasts, that's an easy win for you to get the word out about what you're doing on Amazon. It means you'll get more sales in the long run, and that's exactly what's happening since this promotion has ended. The book is back to its normal price nine ninety nine strangely enough. Amazon decide. To drop the price of the paperback only ten ninety five right now. And maybe because it's only ten ninety five the paperback is selling a lot more copies than it was prior to this promotion..
