"walker" Discussed on The First Degree
"Knoxville. Home also has a lot of smaller communities so we have a bunch of different high schools. Where you know we have probably about fifteen twenty different schools within the community so even though it's very large as a community everybody knows everybody especially when it comes to high school and part of knoxville's high school culture includes activities that are considered classically americana including of course football. And that is the only thing we do here as everybody knows everybody through that way and especially rival team base especially built that game up for weeks and football's kinda what we live and breathe. This focus on football was especially present at central high school in knoxville. Every friday night during the fall months the bleachers surrounding the football field would be packed with spectators. The schools team. The bobcats were red and black jerseys. A row of perfectly polished cheerleaders rooting for them on the sidelines. This school in the broader community of knoxville lived breathe and talked about football constantly but late november of two thousand sixteen. The focus would shift away from players on the field and towards one of central high school's cheerleaders on the morning of ever twenty first of that year joe walker was getting her morning started moving through her single-story knoxville home before making her way to the bedroom of her daughter emma to wake her up and always a junior a cheerleader at central high. Jill entered emma's room and started talking to her encouraging her to wake up and get out of bed. Eminent budge so jill move towards an his bed and touched her leg. She was still when jill looked at her daughter's face horror completely overcame her and the whiz blue motionless cold a devastating now in one call followed and in our opinion. It's so upsetting to hear the pain in her voice during this call that choose not to include it in this podcast. When the police arrive there is incredible confusion. Emma was dead in her bed. a teenage girl. Who was in perfect health. An athlete in perfect health thought she had seen both of her parents night before and everything was fine. So what the hell happened as a police in responders work to figure out what happened to emma. The news of her passing slowly began to spread. I woke up. We were on thanksgiving break. And i was. I did every single morning. I would get on social media and just scrolling through social media. I started to see emma's name everywhere and it was just a tweet after tweet. I knew that something. Something bad had happened but my immediate thought was that she had. I mean. i hate to say this but it's either you know around here. You either thank suicide or correct. That's just typically what your head goes to when you see people you know posting angry can tell. Somebody's passed away. Here's the thing mulling didn't know but due to how small knoxville is. She knew of her and she had friends who were good friends with her. In while molly hadn't met emma she was friends with emma's term boyfriend riley. Riley and emma were both students at central high. Riley was on the football team. He was a ride receiver. Who wore the number eight on his jersey. Riley had noticed emma when she meets the cheer team as a freshman and he was two years older than her but they were drawn to each other immediately cheerleader in football player dating. Just because that's just. I guess the southern way we do it here. It's very friday. Not like here okay. Back to the confusion of learning about emma's death. I just remember being like odd. But i don't think anybody actually knew what happened and then riley had been together for two years. Ms social media was peppered with the two of them. Doing things like paddleboarding kissing and attending parties together as a couple physically. they're adorable. Emma was a beautiful petite blonde jeff sport at a high ponytail. Like you'd expect a cheerleader. Would riley was a tall handsome guy with dark hair and an athletic build. The photos of them were captioned with lovey. Words plucked from high school. Love story gushing over. How lucky they were happy. Each other but like most high school relationships riley and emma's romance took an on again off again quality. They had highs and lows make-up's and breakup so even when they were technically off again. A reconciliation was never far behind emma and riley. Were that quintessential cheerleader and football player. Couple that everyone aspired to be so naturally riley not just to see what he knew about what could have happened to emma but also to see how he would react to the of her death following the spread of the news riley expressed his grief on social media in a facebook post and he also took to twitter one of his tweets read quote. Rest easy now sweetheart. I love you forever. And always and he posted several more times expressing his love and adoration for emma and appeared to be of on par with what you would expect from an ex boyfriend who had just lost his. I love there was actually a note that he had tweeted. And in this note he talked about how much he loved her he. He then went over memories. He then went over just so many details. Riley posted a lengthy tribute to emma on his twitter. So here's a portion of that quote to think that every member we have every special moment we share it can't ever be relived. I love you. Emma jane walker the amount of pain. Your family need. The community are in because of this is insurmountable. Every time we held hands kissed hugged to imagine that will never have that ever again. Hasn't quite hit me yet. I'll never forget this times. We talked about our future. And what kind of dog. We'd get and how awesome our family would be. I'll never forget sitting on the couch. Watching dr pimple popper and making popcorn and laughing in holding you you're beautiful. You're amazing you're funny compassionate caring. You're my best friend publicly. Speculation continued and rumors swirled about emma. Possibly taking her own life or dying or sleep or perhaps an accident no one was really sure and the uncertainty left those in the community on pins and needles waiting for information to ascribe some semblance of understanding to this horrible tragedy. As the shock of emma's death continued to permeate through l. Police back at the walker home were working to piece together. What happened when police initially entered. Emma's home. It seemed to glance as though emma had passed in her sleep maybe she had ingested pills and taking her own life maybe it was an accidental overdose but when they looked more closely they found a small amount of blood on emma's pillow and when they examined emma's body they found with blood came from a small bullet wound behind her left ear. Emma's parents were horrified and confused to their knowledge. No-one had been in their home. They had said night to their daughter the night before and this could be a suicide because there was no sign of gun in emma's room anywhere m is room and the walker home became crime scene and eventually see us is discovered a small bullet hole in the wall of his bedroom. In fact two bullets had been fired into emma's room one lodged into her pillow narrowly missing her and one struck her head killing her. When the exterior of the home was examined they found small bullet holes very small. The size of the top of the pen there are two casings. Found outside in each of these bullet holes were shoulder height. The police ultimately concluded that emma had been killed in her sleep. Bullet lodged binder ear was from a nine millimeter. Handgun was believed that the fatal shots were fired in the early morning hours. When police spoke to emma's parents emma's father mark said that he had woken up in the middle of the night to allowed noise. He jolted awake and thought he heard was maybe a door slamming or or something like that. Actually got up and checked on emma and her brother.

"Specific things to work on specific ways to work on them and coaching on how to do these specific skills. You're listening to the launch life with Jeff Walker Jeff So. I've got a new guitar coach. In fact this is coaching month for me. Because I just started up my ski ski lessons. Were getting coach and skiing as well and I love what I love about this. This guitar. Teachers I've been playing for awhile perpetual beginner. I know special talent. I came to it later in life but I love plane but I've been stuck in a Rut for a long time and what. This New Guitar Coach. His brought to me is is a process system specific things to work on specific ways to work on them and coaching and how to do these specific skills. It's a plan instead of me just sitting down and newly around with the same things that I've been noodling around for years and being stuck in that Rut also making progress and the same thing with my skiing so it's a new ski season back into it. I got back with my coach and all of a sudden. I'm back working on these specific skills that I'd forgotten over the last six months when I was in skiing so I love. I love being coached. I love having a coach and also love coaching because in this business. And let's just call. I like to call it the wisdom business you can call it the knowledge business or the information business or or the experts business or whatever you WANNA call it but in this business where we're in the business of teaching people of imparting our knowledge our skills and other people so they can get better whatever they want to do. Whether it's you know meditation or to quit smoking or playing guitar it doesn't matter if you're in this business or want to get into this business it can be a little inroads into the business can be a little intimidating but the place. I always go to is to start with coaching. When because the reality is if you want to just sit down and credit cards so look I've got my course. My flagship courses product launch formula. It's it's a very significant course. There's a lot to it. There's hours and hours and hours of content it's a full system on and on and we got all kinds of material but I didn't just sit down one day and just magically create ten modules of amazing stuff. I started with coaching people and their launches. And because I was an expert at launching but I was an expert at teaching it. But as you start coaching people and you can you start to identify the commonalities the areas that hold them back the biggest questions. The biggest hurdles the biggest concerns you start to to create a process to take people through those in in that coaching. Then you learn how to create a product and oh by the way. Coaching tends to be a much easier. Sell than a training. Course mean courses are great. They're leveraged you can sell a whole lot of them and not take anymore time whereas coaching doesn't have that Leverage but the leverage coaching does have is it shows you how to create a great product. And then you can take that knowledge that you you learn you practice on your clients. You're getting them results. But you're still you're practicing on how to train how to teach what the hurdles and those are the things that will inform your product and allow you to create product. My I put out. An amazing product has changed the world. But it wasn't because magically I knew how to teach product launches. I just knew how to do them but through coaching people through their product launches. Then I learned how to teach it so if you're just starting out coaching it's an easy sale. People love to buy coaching people. Love to be coached. It will lead you into a much bigger thing. I another a product in the industry.

"So we're talking about money and I'm going to wrap up this little miniseries with us and we're gonNA talk about the evolution of money in the evolution of you an evolution of your relationship to money at least with regards to your business. So I mentioned last week about this like when I started out I spent nothing on my business. Almost nothing I had. I went and got a mailbox. I rented a mailbox and that was it and I did. I did everything myself. I hired know one fact. I didn't hire anyone for years. Figured everything out on my own. Did everything found free services for as long as I could and built a pretty nice little business like that and then things have changed over the years. I've got this great big team. We've got a team of over thirty people. We've got a lot of cost. We've got a lot of report. We've got fancy branding. We've got a fancy camera. Many fancy cameras all kinds of fancy tack spend a lot of money on our websites and our technology and everything. It's a crazy much money we spent and they're so there's an evolution that you go through and you and I'll tell you here here's one is like you go from flying coach and maybe a flight would cost you three hundred dollars that some point. Maybe you make that decision to start flying first class because if coaches three hundred dollars and I classes twelve hundred dollars. How could it possibly be worth it to spend an extra nine hundred dollars to get on the same plane to go to the same place? While at some point as your success grows the value of your time grows and if all of a sudden you're doing work that's worth a thousand dollars an hour or three thousand ten thousand dollars an hour and it will happen if you continue to evolve your skills this actually will happen. But let's just say it's a thousand dollars an hour that your time is now worth a thousand people would actually pay you without dollars an hour or the the the the work that you do to create something. Pays you back the equivalent of thousand dollars an hour now all of a sudden if you get on that flight and as a three hour flight in now since you're in first class you can be on your computer and you can be productive versus being cramped and coach and that being a work on your machine and now you're GonNa arrive at your destination so much more refreshed because of that first class experience. Well now that you've got like three hours of productivity plus the extra productivity when you land now is it worth an extra nine hundred dollars for that ticket. Yeah of course it is. Of course it is so. That's the kind of thinking that you're gradually going to be a and you'll do this all areas it's like does it pay for me to edit this video. I've built up the skills. I can edit a video but does it pay for me when you're starting out. Yes it's way better for you to do that. Video versus go and spend a lot of money on a video editor but at some point. It makes more sense to pay someone to do that. I mean flipping back to that flight. Okay so let's say it was the difference what I say three hundred dollars and twelve hundred dollars now. What if you could take a private jet and spend ten thousand dollars on that same flight? That can't possibly make sense right. But what if that private jet actually saves you an entire day of travel because of the way the connections worked and this kind of thing happens for me because I live out in a little town and you have to take a few hops. A few connections and I've had situations where taking a private flight actually meant. I could stay at a conference for an entire extra day and so if I can stay at a conference maybe make one connection that now with the leverage my business has one significant connection with the right person could be worth tens of thousands or long hundreds of thousands of dollars now all of a sudden. There's a ten thousand dollar. Private flight makes sense. It absolutely can. So what I'm getting at is overtime your relationship as your as the business grows as your success growth. Your relationship with money is going to change sucker change who you are but your relationship with money and the way you need to think about money and the leverage that money can create is a really important thing so there is a time to be very very very frugal to really watch the pains especially watch any fixed cost that you add to your business and then there's a time where it absolutely makes sense to invest in things that raise your professionalism or increase the efficiency of your time increase your productivity. It's very interesting evolution and I can. I can remember when you know I was scrimping by for every penny and things are different now. It's been an amazing journey. And it's one that becomes more important as you become more successful so just wrapping up this money series. I know mostly talked and concepts because these are short videos and I don't have a lot of time but if you were interested in me going deeper on some of these no promises. I'm not thinking about doing a course. This isn't a shot across the bow or anything like that but I might decide to do some more longer individuals about these type of things and give you real examples. Walk through exactly how it works. If you're interested in that scroll down let me know or if you're just like Jeff I've had enough of this money stuff go leave it behind. Go to something else. That's fine too. But if you want to hear more in depth about money and about how it works and your business and how you need to think about it then let me know and let me know what I should cover in what you're interested otherwise. That's scroll down leader common for me. And let's go get.

"So I spend fifty sixty dollars a month for my business. You're listening to the launch life with Jeff Walker occur. Here's JEB so we're talking about money in this little mini series. And when I started out my first I business back in one thousand nine hundred six. I started I think it was thirty. Five dollars was my total investment and that was for a a mailbox at mailboxes etc.. To rent it for three months and I spent no money my website in a free website. It was the name of my Internet providers slash till day Jay Walker. That was my website back. Then people would go to a website like that. You can get listed at Yahoo like that. I didn't have a domain name didn't have web hosting here's a free email list. That's aw didn't spend anything and after about three months and the business actually. It seemed like things. We're going to start going. I've made a few dollars so I bought a domain name back. Then it cost seventy dollars to buy a domain name true story and then I got web-hosting because forty dollars a month to get web-hosting so some things have gotten a lot cheaper I got an email list host. I can't remember if that was like ten or twenty bucks a month so I was spending fifty sixty dollars a month for or at my business and I was able to build a business up because purely via email and and you know there's minimal hosting and and build a business up so we're making two hundred thousand dollars. which was pretty amazing? Is the only cost. The cost didn't go up at all. He stated that whatever fifty sixty dollars a month and they have merchant fees so when we made credit card sales we'd pay whatever three percent so basically the our profitability was was really the high was like merge ninety six percent or ninety five percent. And when I did that the there was no account him business because almost every dollar was profit so I didn't have to account for anything basically at the end of each year I would do a total of all my expenses and then I would subtract that and it was a glorious time. It was very very profitable markets. Were very much smaller. Back than the largest of our kinds of businesses back then was a few hundred thousand dollars a year so there's less people online people buying but things were simpler. Emergency were generally a lot higher so that was all great. Things have changed since then. It's more expensive to business. It's most of us. are spending money to pull in. Traffic and accounting has gotten a lot more important because margins drought businesses are much bigger much much much bigger than they were back then market or bigger more people are buying lying so those are all great news the ability to grow a large business and do it quickly it is way beyond what it ever was before but it also means margins have come down so you have to. You have to account for things. Accounting is important far more important than when I started and holy cow. Do we have a lot of noise going on in the background. But I'm just going to plow how long you said what you do. So what I'm saying is most entrepreneurs I know accounting is not there. I love most people people that are starting their business out especially online business. They're not experienced with accounting or finance. It's not what they love. In fact it's the last thing they wanted to actually legalzoom. He goes the last thing they want to do. In accounting's the second to last thing but it's important it's important because we're all spending mortgage acquire the customer merging dropping. Business is great. That's fantastic but as margin strapped risk goes up. And so you have to stay on top of your county so even if you're just starting out you need to start. You need to think about getting a bookkeeper earlier rather than later. You don't have to hire a full time person all kinds of people. You can hire part time but the bookkeeping and the accounting is a port. Count dollars pay attention knowledge. You don't want to be the person that has great month in sales in the month. Figure out that you're actually having money you can't make payroll. You can't pay your bills. You don't want to be that person so so pay attention to.

"Talked about money for a couple of weeks. So let me give you one of the other the most important roles and that get two dollar one so what I mean by that is get to the sale. If you have of an idea and we all entrepreneurs we have ideas all the time right now ideas just keep on coming and they all seem like they're going to be great and then you have one that's like this is it. This is the idea idea. I'M GONNA charge for them with this idea. So when you're at that moment what you WanNa do is get tieger. I offer as quickly as possible. Don't put a ton of time into creating a great brand and decreased beautiful website into some super polished materials. Just get an offer out there so in my product Formula I teach the seed launch. This is my absolute favorite. The best way to get started is either is either put out an offer to coach people or put out an offer for a small group program. Just put out. The offer are very simple page. You can actually do this via social an interest drive people to an order page but get that offer out there because this is all about finding out whether it's actually a viable offer you know we can all dream up ideas and dream up offers and dream up products dream services but until someone actually gives us cash until they pull out their wallet and put down a credit card. You don't know what to viable so don't go spending a lot of money an unproven idea. Get the first dollar. Get the first sale. Hopefully it's the first dozen sales or or something and that you've proven and then you can start putting money into it too many times. I've seen people including friends of mine. Spent have come with ideas. He this is going to be amazing putting all this effort and create something beautiful taking months even a year ear to create something beautiful inexpensive. But they don't know whether it's going to sell there's this whole idea of the minimum viable product nets. What you want is The minimum viable product of minimum viable offer. They can put out there and you will learn so much but putting that I offer route about what people care about and what they're willing to spend for it will change everything so get the dollar one get dollar one get to make make that first sale. Find a way to make that first sale to make that I offer as quickly as you can and then you know if you've got something that's going to work if it works then go all in if not move onto the next idea so I'm Jeff Walker wherever you're watching this. Scroll down for me. Let's go get him. This week.

"Okay. So we're talking about money in the little mini series food. and I wonder what the absolute most important things you so you have to get this right. And that's this idea of of making the second sale so people get really a namrd with acquiring acquiring the customer with finding the customer reaching out into into the interwebs and somehow attracting someone having to come in and buy from you getting an initial sale and that's all great and frankly. It's something that I did that quite a bit in years past but ah one. There's one rule that that was not going to change and that it's always going to get more expensive to acquire the customer estimate. Advertising costs. Keep going up. The cost to reach people keeps going up. That's not gonNA turn around anytime soon. It's just going to keep getting more expensive to acquire the customer. So what you need to do. You need to focus on the second and third sale of four sale but the next sale. Aw The back end. What is what are you going to sell to people that have already bought from you? Because I'll tell you this in my experience it's about fifteen times easier to make the second sale than to make the first sale and so the completely changes the way you're mathworks and often the second can sail can be at a higher price and the profitability is so much greater because you're no longer paying the cost to acquire that customer so you have to focus focus on the back end and what that does is it allows you to spend more money to acquire the customer so if if your first sale one hundred dollars but then of the people that buy from you a third of them make an additional purchase for another hundred dollars then that means that initial I shall aquisition. Well that person's worth so much more to have to bring them into your world that allows you to spend more to get that initial sale tale. This will completely change and at the end of the day. You're competing against other people in your market to acquire that initial customer. And as I say the cost will keep coming up. And you're you're competing your spend is competing against their spent and so what you need to do is at a back end and hopefully it higher end back and completely change the math in your business and it will it. You just can't survive in long-term effect when I look at businesses and occasionally come across one where it's like well that we really hard to have a back end for that business. Then it'd be one I wouldn't even be interested in if if you and the corollary or the tangent off that it's almost every business you can build a back end but you absolutely have to focus goose on their back and additional sales or else at some point the cost of acquisition. Way Too high for you so I hope this isn't lamb even talked to numbers yet. But I hope this isn't too conceptual because this is the one thing you have to nail if you're going to have a real sustainable business so I'm Jeff Walker wherever watching this.

"While we got this thing and I've been working my way through the videos and we were going to launch officially like Sunday we got it all cleaned up and polished and then we realized used we've got six weeks of paycheck's coming and now we're good at savings so we had personal savings but we were. We didn't WanNa have to touch it. You're listening to the launch life with Jeff Walker. Here's Jeff. I'm here with Amanda and Jonathan. Tech Sarah and they have a really cool launch journey. They want to tell you about so Amanda Jonathan. Can you tell us a little bit about your business certainly yeah well. Thanks for having us so our business wallet. Win helped people figure out how to use their money. So we help people get out of debt build wealth and change the rookie generosity we do that through just covering the basics of financial personal finance education so what mom and dad should've top them but didn't because they didn't know either very cool so. I remember a couple years ago. You're at Pilaf. Live our big live event. You guys asked a question and you shared a little bit about what you've done. So could you talk about like where you started and how US Pilaf and what happened next yeah so our story really began just over two years ago. I I found her workshop. Jeff and we had kind of had a Sunday. We wanted to launch inch this crazy business thing right and we'd had a lot of success paying off debt in our early marriage and saving and investing in people were kind of just seeking us out for for coaching and we started getting speaking gigs so I saw your workshop took it and you taught about the seed launch so that's summer we we kind of put out on social media channels like hey. We're going to test this personal finance thing. We didn't know her. Doing all I had was what you taught in that workshop and eighty eighty people said they'd be interested. Beta testing this thing and when we open doors just for that little tiny seed launch that summer we had the thirty one percent conversion and we brought in over thirty seven hundred dollars so we were like okay. I think that this thing's got legs but it was still like so you have to create it and we'll see what happens is an exploration of a hobby at that point so with those people though we kind of Beta tested it. We just is ran. Live we rough rough rough rough. They kind of just helped us flesh the ideas out and they they knew it was going to be a a lot more than anybody else would see they were helping us. Get it off the ground so fast forward a few months yeah so we went through the band launch figure out what we will work. We need to change and again it. Instill we'll get to it when we have the time or whatever and then women feel like the workshop came up again. Kalis version of it. You went through it that time and then that time. We thought we should really know what we're doing about this. We bought park want formula. Then guess started working through it and then about maybe two weeks into it on a Friday afternoon three fifteen ish my boss walks in and says hey do you have minutes talk and it was the old hey that thing. You're you're working on. You don't WanNa do that anymore and because of that. We don't really need you around here anymore. So there's a box for your stuff. Hey well while we've got this. Pilaf thing and I've been working my way through the the videos and we were going to launch officially like someday we got it all cleaned up and polished and then we realized we've got six weeks of paycheck's coming and now we're good at saving leaving so we have your personal savings but we were we didn't want to have to touch it and so we worked our tails off strapped an iphone to the top of a computer in started recording recording our videos and six weeks later we had a launch and in that launch we had about three hundred and thirty people people opt in and we made nine sales and then a couple up cells and radisson about six thousand dollars so it was like all right. I think we can do this this and then we just kept kind of just diving in full-time on Wallet Win. Keeping it working serving our students finding ways you know ways to to monetize and just new new launches new offers in all then just able to keep going yeah. I mean we just couldn't believe that we literally created created business overnight out of thin air and I remember your story Jeff. You called yourself Mr Mom and it just related with me so much because I was home with the babies we had a two two year old and a one year old at the time and life was pretty chaotic but I wanted to find a way to contribute and use my skills in the world but also stay home and raise my babies and I wanna Jonathan to come home with me and so the fact that in six weeks flat this all came together because you gave us the skills and training I mean I was just just in complete disbelief because that was the worst part of me working Lee before they wake up. I'd come home eat dinner and then practically bedtime. Eh hardly saw our kids except for the weekend and I just didn't like I didn't like looking through having a course through knowing what the heck they do to sell the thing with launches ray able now to just you know have that part of the life that we want of spending time with our kids of doing meaningful work and helping people and we get to have it all well first of all congratulations and turnaround from that Friday afternoon at three fifteen pm and getting laid off if I as you you just a menu were talking a little bit about my story of one started way back and you know hoping to get my wife home and I was taking care of the kids but also I had that that Friday afternoon call one time with my first business a partnership a very abrupt partnership break-up had on a Friday afternoon. I got a call like that and that's such back. You know emotionally there. That's a big deal. It's a big transition so congratulations on making that. What did that feel like to go from? Wow just the wind in your sails to six weeks later having that launch at six thousand dollars it was it was a heck of a feeling it's that thing. I mean that's the thing I always heard about you see on TV TV or a movie. You know the boss comes in like ads. It's happening thinking okay to make that phone. Call and tell them and what's going on and it just I felt terrible and then I think what we're trying to. I don't know why I think I had my bag from when we were writing something. I had a voice recorder her Mike Mike Myself on the way home that day. so it's it's a podcast bars today. Jonathan lost his job and when we listen back a year later and it was incredible because it's just like all right. This kinda sucks but we're going to move forward and I guess we're going fulltime time on wildwood and it's GonNa work and it's going to happen because that's what's going to happen and I think I had that that confidence there because the right and you look at the future future especially with this kind of figuring out the future it can be a lot of just fuzzy images. Let a lot of question marks. We had our way forward. We were still learning it going through the course but we had that we we we have this thing and we're going to do this launched. We're going to do it this way and we kinda done it before and now we're going to really do it. And why wouldn't you see the success I would say if we had not enrolled in the course Jeff Flake. I think he would have just gone and gotten another job. We would have postponed things now knowing what we know. That would have been the worst mistake ever because you just have to get going. There's never a perfect time to go into launch and so we're just really glad that we had that shove and that we had the right resource to land on to make that next pivot this I'm getting chills and Jonathan when you talked about recording yourself on the drive home those giving me chills dramatic like that awesome.

"How does he actually do three hours. Live and second of all how you keep people attending you're listening to the launch life with Jeff Walker. Here's Jeff Welcome to launch central so I had the first session on my lunch masterclass a few days ago on Thursday and tomorrow is the second session so if you were there well you probably noticed. It was pretty awesome if you weren't there. I'll put a link down below to get registered because it's pretty darn cool so I did basically about all three hours and Thursday and you might be thinking like how's he actually first of all. How does he actually do three hours hours. Live and second of all how you keep people attending our our stick rate over three hours is absolutely amazing. So here's a secret. This secret works whether you're doing live broadcasts. It works whether you're doing a Webinar at it works whether you're leading a small group works whether you're leading a three day live event and a call comes down to chunking it comes down to breaking down in the segments so here. This diagram probably looks a little silly right here but what I've done is. I've actually broken down. Walk you through so this is the first hour this is the second hour and this is the third hour but if you're doing a three event you could break down the three we day event like this. If you were doing a one day mastermind you could break that down and when you break it down it gets a lot more easily digestible and it keeps you focused so what I have here is this is the way it actually went on Thursdays away. We're going to do basically the similar thing tomorrow morrow on Monday. So I opened up. I had an opening an opening was just a minute long and me. Just earn might have in two minutes. It might have been three minutes. I can't remember but basically is very very short and it's just sort of setting the stage and given some ground rules and giving some hints hints and tips and then and we actually change camera sets but this is the first set and then we played very short video and the video was like a minute line but in that minute long I moved from the one set to the next set so what what I'm getting at is right here as I started. I only had to think about this first segment the first chunk and what I needed to do there then I had had a reset. It was a very short recep. This is a very short short video is like an intro video but then I did my first teaching segment here big meaty eighty teaching segment so I had a complete outlined for that segment but only had to focus on that segment then we had another video segment that we played in here and that gave me a chance to reset grab a drink of water. Maybe if I need to run to the bathroom talk to my team you just get a reset then we went into another teaching segment here and that was the first hour so it wasn't like I had to get up and just make stuff talk for an hour. I had three individual segments and I just have to focus on what was right in front of me in that segment and I had enough time name. Actually you know this is a really quick break. I mean that was like a minute but down here. That was several minutes so I could truly reset reset there then I at the end of the first hour I introduced a case study and then we had a case study. What about ten minutes ish so again? I had a chance to reset then in between then. We had two more case studies in between each case study. I did a little transition transition. I did a little extra team there but I had this ten minutes to reset. Go get a drink water. Check with my team comment. Check on what kind of questions are coming in. Just sit down and take a few deep breath clear my throat lay down and take a nap. I didn't take a nap but it just goes to show you that that when you break this down it becomes much more manageable. If you're doing a three day event it becomes much more manageable when you start to break. What's the three day event typically a three day event. Each day is either going to be four ninety minute sessions or five hour long session so if you think a three day event is it's really just fifteen hour long sessions and you know the first one's going to be an intro and the last one's going to be a conclusion and you're probably. GonNa have a couple of Q and a sessions well all of a sudden you go from fifteen sessions to take away the intro conclusion on the thirteenth sessions. You probably going to have a sort of an inch or kind of session for each day. Eh to set the tone for the day so there's a couple more sessions out of the way throwing sessions and all of a sudden you go from fifteen sessions down to like nine sessions when you start to break it down. Everything was more manageable from here. After this final case study that wanted to cue a this is a longer sight segment because we had a lot of questions and crushes June as awesome and that's frankly one of my sweet spots. I've been at this business for so long that you literally can't ask me a question. I don't have an answer for a longer session and then we went to. We took a little break. We are sort of a false ending because we had the supersecret segment up here. We told people about the super secret segment but sort of we went through this went to a final close camera went down and went down for about a minute and then I came back with the super secret segment if you're around it was really cool. If you left early sorry about that tomorrow. Make sure to stick around for the super-secret segment so that's how broke down for meat. That's what I would have a hard time getting up and talking for three hours but this chunking. It made it super manageable for me so I can. You can take the strategy whether you're doing one day mastermind whether you're doing a ninety minute webinar whether you're doing a three day event whatever you're doing you can chunk. I mean if you're going for a big hike. If you're going to run a marathon chunk it it works and you know what else did is kept. People engaged because typically like if you're GonNa do a Webinar or something like that alive cast or something you know people after an hour. Even if it's really good they're gone. They're checked out the we stuck people all the way through not everyone but it was remarkable How people stuck with us so chunk chunk if you are now on board already with US Live Mesh Class. You've just missed the first session. We've got three more live. Training sessions plus all kinds of other goodies. I'll put a link down villas video click. There doesn't cost anything. It's free you just need to opt in and I'll see in the next life test so there about chunking.
"walker" Discussed on Launch Life with Jeff Walker
"Two thousand five two thousand six is a little bit different. Social media really wasn't a thing. You're listening to the launch life with jeff walker. Here's this jeff so october twenty first two thousand and five that's when i launched product formula and like anytime you're all brand new product it was exciting. It was nervous but long story short. We did really really well. We sold six hundred units. I was completely or almost completely unknown at that point and then to come out with a launch for hi-tech a product and sell six hundred units weeks timeframe was absolutely awesome so that that was fantastic so that was october and then march of two thousand six. I went out. I made my first public appearance. I went to a big conference. It was the underground online's second ever underground online conferences like the biggest congress there was back then and i went there and so little sidebar in two thousand and five thousand six is a little bit different. Social media really wasn't a thing so it wasn't like i was out. There and people were seeing me interact and i was this was my first public appearance after that lunch and i remember walking down into the lobby like the night before the conference in started and there was hundreds of people sort of million about networking and talking and some of them you know catching up old times and as i walked in there i had this feeling of. I'm gonna meet a bunch of people that paid me a lot of money for product launch formula back then it was a thousand dollars for product launch formula and i'm gonna meet a lot of people and i hope they liked the product i hoped are they going to are they going to run up to to me and say that was a complete scam. I believe in my product. I knew it was going to do good but i just never know. It's the first real feedback. I was going to get because like i said it wasn't like i was getting feedback on social media or anything like that so i actually had this little sense of trepidation as i walked in to the <hes> this conference area or the big lobby area and it's like what what's going to be like what are they gonna love me or not and so i walked in there and before i walked walked fifteen feet in the lobby so walked up to me and they told me an incredible story about their launch and then i want another five or ten feet and another person came up opening he told me how he had done a launch to buy though the engagement ring for his wife and he was now engaged and i got story story after story and i have to tell you it was one of the most gratifying things ever put all this effort into the product in like are they going to love me and they loved me and it was interesting because back then we were. I don't even know if i had a cell phone and if i did there wasn't a camera on the cellphone. There certainly wasn't a video came with like everyone's watching all the video camera but i was actually at that conference i was on my my way to go to a spring break with my kids and my wife and i happened to bring a camcorder old-fashioned camcorder. If you remember that what those are if you knew what they were and i happen to have my camcorder because i wanted to be able to shoot video of my kids on the beach in florida on vacation so after the third or fourth person personnel said oh hold on for just stay right there don't move and they ran up to my room. I ran back down and i said can you just say that what you just said that to me again and i just shot this really quick and dirty video. I mean it was loud. There's all these people in that room and i didn't really i never shot a video like that before and no one really published video at that time i mean pump put video. Online was really fairly difficult at that point but i'm like i just want to catch you this and when i left that conference i think it was five or six. Maybe it was seven different videos and they are essentially case study because they were talking about their launches and how they did their launches all these different markets in the market even heard of before and that was the start that was the start of doing case studies and i think i was really the early torchbearer lots of people are doing it now but but i think i was the first person to ever do that and it was that was how i marketed product formula for years in fact. It's how i still market pro. I mean when i look at the way sold tens of millions of dollars of it now. We've done really well. I've thousands and thousands of thousands dozens of students who've had amazing success but the way i sell it is through to mesa through case studies and it's through my launches where i deliver a lot of value you and then i open up prostration and so ever since then it's been i've done dozens and dozens and dozens and dozens of case studies in every every kind of launch and every kind of market and it's awesome so like i told you last week i'm getting i'm heading into my launch. I've got my launch coming up next month. In september the timber start september twelfth is when the launch starts when when my lunch master class starts and so right now i'm in the mode of gathering even more case studies so for the next few weeks. We're going to be gathering case studies. I'm going to do like a call for case you might have noticed. I sent out an email l. cup a couple of days ago. It was a call for case studies and i'm going to basically shoot a bunch more case studies to us just within this launch launch and it's one of my favorite things to do is just sharing the success that my students my clients have. It's it's just a blast because they all have have such radically different. Launches radically different businesses and radically different markets were radically different products. I love to share it. I just i never get sick of it. I mean it's it's a big ego boost for me because i get to hear about how amazing amazing work dave on because of my work and the amazing impact they've made c._b._s. Because of the impact of my work so i love it so as i'm going to remember is i if you want to if you've got a a appeal of success story whether it's from watching my free stuff or going through my approximately formula coaching program or from reading my book whatever her i would love to hear from you. I'll put a link down below this video and you can click on over if you've got a story you tell about your launch l. Just take you over to a quick survey that my team and i'll go through all of them and pick out the ones. We want to highlight during the lodge but i guarantee you one thing. I'm going to be going through all of them. I personally so if you wanna tell me your story. It's just going to be a quick little survey so i'd love to feature you so if you've got a success story click on that link down below and second. I want you to save the dates because what i'm calling. My launch is really my launch masterclass so i'm going to be teaching four <unk> sessions and that's just the start of got all kinds of other goodies within that launch but here this is a official save the date the first our first one is timber twelfth so it's going to be a live training. I'm going to be teaching probably nearly three hours of live training. And how do you do your launch inch. This one's going to be a sort of the big picture not the big picture but the overall launch strategy that has been working since two thousand and five and it's going to be updated dated for this year so september twelfth is at first broadcast it'll be at i think four p._m. Eastern time but just black off september twelfth eastern u._s. time the second one is going to be about september. Sixteenth is going to be about the primary types of launches because there's in different ways to launch that fit for different situation so definitely put that one down. It's gonna be at the same time again. I think it's four p._m. Eastern but to stay stay tuned september sixteenth the third one is sort of the the map the overall map of the launch territory and your launch so it's going to be awesome and nineteenth and then september twenty third september twenty third is going to be the open kurt strategy so once you actually actually open up your lachey start taking or going to cover that it's going to be awesome and those live broadcasts are just going to be part of it. We're going to have downloads all the way through. I'm gonna have my coaches coaches. In answering questions i'm going to be doing videos and between them live in between the last time when we did this at the end of this thing when we delivered covered fourteen hours of free training we have people trying to buy the free training of course that's when i opened the registration approximates formula people were trying to buy the free training so what i'm saying is saves the day the value that i'm going to deliver just from this free stuff is absolutely going to be off the charts so we'll put those dates down to your counter platform. It's gonna be awesome scub- you launch mastic it <music> ooh <music> <laughter> <music> uh..
