Most people don't know who they WANNA be in if they're telling you otherwise it just taking a shot and I guess, and that's what you would be doing right now you should be experimenting. Number One, you've already made a decision to quit law school good for you. That's a decision and most good decisions come out of eliminating what you don't like sin. Now, what would you love to do not for a lifetime but just now I would sit down and make a list of everything you're good at your outgoing put it on your list. If you're good reader, put it on your list.

So you get an arena was something Kinda like. then. I would definitely apply for a menial position. The lowest position you get to get a taste of the industry and I would probably try to change jobs five times in the next year. Try this try that. People find out who they are by trying a lot on and you're not giving yourself that luxury you need to. You're only twenty four years old go out and play in the traffic, get a menial position and don't you dare open a business when you're on certain, you'll open a business when you fall in love with what you're doing and want to do for yourself.

How brutal honesty will bring you massive profits, happiness, and success with Peter Kozodoy

"Well, fire nation we have a lot to. Talk about today, it's going to be a blast. We're talking about honest to greatness how brutal honesty is going GonNa Bring you NASA prophets happiness and success and Peter. You're upcoming book is endorsed by Barbara Corcoran, which I'm very proud and have always been very excited to say was one of our power twenty, the first twenty people I ever interviewed on this show. So she was very kind enough are never forget to take my interview while she was getting her makeup done before an episode of Shark Tank. So it was pretty cool. It has some background noise going on but overall, it was a blast and. Kudos to that, it's about using brutal honesty to achieve massive success. So I just have to ask why honesty why did that concept intrigued you so much as to write a book about it it's a great question because I actually never set out to write about speak about or frankly even care about honesty. It's surprising to me as it is to anyone that I've written. A book about something we all learned in preschool, and yet I think when we look around at the we live in right now it's pretty clear that we need a whole lot more honesty here in twenty twenty So to take you back and help everyone understand how I got here Let's go back to that that figure Skater seventeen-year-old Peter and at that age. I was the same size, five, seventy cancer a smaller younger. The two things were true. I knew two things to be absolutely true. My Life I was I was going to going to the Olympics has a figure skater unequivocally that was what was going to occur and the second thing. John's I. Was GonNa go to Harvard I, grew up on the South Shore Boston there is only one college for me it was in. My backyard that was Harvard. Well, by eighteen I had missed my shot at the Olympics was clear that I just couldn't keep my nerves together to make it work I applied to Harvard Harvard. Sent me a letter back saying thank you. But no, thank you. Don't call us. We'll call you and from that point on I won't live I, was devastated. Devastated I ended up. Going to another college and When I came out, I started a company. it ended well, it's a long story. Short story has started a video production company, my business partner I. Having no idea what we can do I I've always been the type to think I can do it better. And so the great thing about that is when you think you do a better, you can go start a business. The bad thing about that is when you think you can do a better. You actually have to go out and do it better A. So we spent a lot of years having no idea what we were doing John we were we were shooting eight hundred dollar television commercials for local car dealers, which is exactly as glamorous as it sounds. And I remember thinking like, wow, we could only shoot more eight, hundred dollars television commercials, ain't we would be rich we'd be rich. That's the past millions while apparently I had not studied hard math classes at college because if I had, I realized that that was the stupidest thing I could have thought it was just unfeasible for a whole lot of reasons, and again you know this young twenties entrepreneur. More gumption than brains. So eventually we Pivoted into being a full service marketing agency, and the reason we made that pivots because we were getting hired by other agencies and we realized that Kinda sucked they didn't take care of their clients. They overcharged they missed deadlines. Strategies weren't that good what we can do this better again right? We can do better. So or what we do you slap a new label on our. On our agency. Now Boom, we're full service marketing agency, and so quick story. The way we got our first client was that we were doing videos for local college and shooting their students and listening to their stories. And one day the the market called and said, Hey, we have a pitch open. We're going to hire a full service agency. It's about a million dollar account. Do you WanNa come pitch in do you have the resources to do this? And so we put the phone on mute or like okay. We'll do you know we need like graphic design to do account manager. We're GONNA probably need some web developed. Do we have the resources to that? No No. Definitely not So we pick the phone backup we said, yeah, absolutely WANNA. Come and touch will be there whatever time you need a Haredi go. So. We're in the pitch and at the towards the end we show this video had been recording of their students and the students are talking than we reveal our Tagline, which is the foundation of the entire campaign. And the room goes quiet. And the President looks down at what we've done pause. She looks up. And says, where did you? Where did you get this? I've been looking for this for years and I was tempted to say because we're the biggest bunch of geniuses ever. Of course, that's why I didn't because that wouldn't have been honest instead I said, your own, your own students gave us this. This is how they really think and feel these by the way of the only people who matter the ones who pay you money for your product and service. And so throughout building my company I got very interested in how honesty plays into the organization into the executives because it's not just being about your customers, what they think but I was always fascinated by how some of our clients took our growth strategies and just crushed it Golic a five, hundred, six, hundred, percent Roi loved US stayed with us for years and others. John. We'd work with. We'd give the same love attention strategies and they would just blow up on the launch pad I. Mean They could not get out of their own way they descended into infighting and politics in both quite frankly, and I always chalked it up to stupidity as these people are a bunch of morons. But of course, they weren't that. Was Me being a moron did. A tremendous amount of acumen intelligence to become an executive in any role. What I actually found over the years was it was something much more serious, which was a lack of honesty and in a variety of ways you're honest about what was going on in the world and how consumer trends were changing honest about what was going on with their fellow executives or their customers or dishonest with themselves and with their own biases and self limiting beliefs as a leader in and I saw many. And it wasn't until. I had my own crisis of honesty that the whole solidified for me that I that I made sense of this both both in the organizational sense in the personal sense something terrible happened to me John. It took me years to get over I don't know if this happened to you but I turned thirty. Oh. My God I don't know how people survive that. It was just devastated. I was like this is off. So I turned thirty and Mike Okay. This isn't so bad and then as I looked around, I just started descended into darkness and I just started beating myself up over. You know what happened because I realized that those two massive failures I had seventeen had been sticking with. Me had had given me these big weights on my shoulders at said Peter you can strive for greatness, but it's never going to be the best life because you already failed at that you already done your already failure. And it turned out it was carrying that around. So so by thirty, you know I looked around listen I built a million dollar company just married. My wife were flipping anew house I mean bronze purposes show just shut the hell up and been happy. But life doesn't work that way and I realized that there was so much more that I still had him that I still wanted to do and that's when I realized I had been dishonest with myself. Here I was preaching organizational honesty and I had failed to get out of my own way in realized my own self limiting beliefs and in the year after I turned thirty John achieved than I had in the ten years prior one of these things being the book that is now going to come out this year fire nation I. Hope you can just hear and understand and absorb what Peter Sharing Right now how critical

Some Tadpoles I didn't sell any of them but I they were for sale and then I let them go one summer at summer camp at Boy Scout Camp that Christian. I both attended. Don't bring me it's weird And you were a customer of mine when I Sold Candy. I think I basically broke. Even the the finding is I would make money and then I would go spend that money on candy from the Light Trading Post at the camp. You are also very generous. I remember you give a lot of away I so I think they'll very powerful. It's not that you had customers as much as you had users you know. I'm when you'RE A kid. Sugar is like your I would have been a terrible drug dealer these drug dealers and they're like wow the first one's free they get you hooked. Also I'm not convinced that what you were doing was above board. Oh no I'm sh- well I wonder what the statute probably pay down. Hopefully for your for your funding scandal era. No care could be a dream. Life could be injury. Do you're listening to life is short. I am your host Justin. Long Sweden do shampoo with me as always is my candy. Loving brother does that. What does that sound gross now? Candy Levin Yeah. It sounds like okay. Let's just say that about an adult. It sounds a little juvenile. It doesn't sound grocer than than than I do love candy. That's why there's something candy now is like I don't know why you think it's naughty naughty in in terms of being bad for you if that's what you mean by it's too cutesy. Yeah naughtiest cutesy. Yeah that's why I don't use the word naughty very often. That's why conflating seriously. I say it. Maybe I'm being naughty. Yes jokingly yeah who? That's that's funny there too. You know the expression. They're two types of people in this world but there are those that say used it. Were Naughty seriously our mom. She was not being naughty. Yeah don't be naughty or she would say as she says playfully now. Fine when we were kids we didn't get a lot of sweets and I think that's why I felt so I felt so dangerous when I went and bought those I must have been twelve or thirteen and I bought those boxes of Candy Wholesale. I thought it was so I was like just to the age where I I was I. It hasn't been very long. I was able to buy my own candy which was remember that when you're like so excited it was so it was such a thrill in soda. Remember those exciting to be able to go to a soda machine. Oh my God I was able to acquire money. I just wanted to do it anyway. I could So I had these little businesses that you were a little entrepreneur but I wonder why that didn't stick because now it's terrible with money now. I don't have to tell me. Well I'm telling me audience you're right that there was no no remnants of like that entrepreneurial spirit that. I had as a kid I'd give it like a running running running started to it entrepreneurial. That's a tough word entrepot. By contrast our guest today is an excellent adult entrepreneur. Yes that's right and I am. I was so curious. How what her roots were in terms of. You know how she came to be interested in that. Are you interested in or you just like money me no one? How does one become an entrepreneur? I mean what's the route that they I think it depends. That's true I think business. Well let's see how the interview goes according to our guest today Barbara Corcoran and we. I didn't say you were setting me up. She says she's interested in the reason she loves. Business is the people and making and developing relationships with people so I think I'm sure some people go into business for just for the money so they can drive fancy cars but So I think it all depends mark Cuban With whom she does the show shark tank. He seems like He. He's likes getting things and and he's like a big Kid. He strikes me as He also seems like he really enjoys being known. Yeah but nothing wrong with that. Yeah I like him he too. I think he's given Barbara Corcoran. Somebody that I didn't really know because I'm not Have you ever seen short type seen it but I? I didn't know the other sharks by name. I think. Mark Cuban's the only the wonderful. I know just because it's funny because I I've seen a bunch of says I like that show. I like it too. I just don't know it well enough to know her to have known her. Or whatever Do I will get into it but if maybe you do know Barbara and maybe you don't but you're about to know her a little bit better so you did this interview for some context a couple of weeks ago and now we are in the throes of Corentin were in Justin. I are quarantining. Gather and Connecticut and so this interview is done a couple weeks ago before this happened. So that's the reason that you guys don't mention it as it was before so last week we did Barbara before bill nye around the same time and but of course bill and I talked about a lot more because Barbara is not a science gal so for the next few weeks the interviews will be from Before now a week or two ago before the crisis but crazy. It's all of these intros will be smack DAB crisis which is from our quarantine from our course and we're hoping everyone is doing okay and getting by in the crazy crazy time we're also hoping to check in with some friends So we might do a special episode where we just do that. We just Christian. I'd call some friends in check in and not just talk to each other. It's it depends how we're feeling we're taking it day by day. Yeah Yes oh please as always feel free to us and tell us how you're making the most of your quarantine life short at one dot com But for now let's listen to some pre corentin chat with our guest today very saucy. I would say and very fun Entrepreneurial yes obviously entrepreneurial entrepreneurial entrepreneurial take.

Better Business Bureau: Risky Scams To Look Out For

"To a new report from the better business bureau of the Federal Trade Commission says Americans lost get this nearly six hundred and seventy million dollars to scams in twenty nineteen alone that is a lot of money more than thirty seven thousand were reported to the B. B. B. the better business bureau and while that number decreased from twenty eighteen the median the middle amount of money lost per scheme rose two hundred and sixty dollars thirty five percent of people who were exposed to one of those games in twenty nineteen lost money as one one three our consumer investigative correspondent Anna Werner is here to explain more and implement scams are the biggest one apparently had of those work you know somebody will say to you Hey listen you can make part time money working from home one of these victims said she's a college student and she shared her story with the baby and she said you know they said the friend told me we can make three hundred dollars and you can make three hundred dollars per per quarter if you just sign up for this but what they're really looking for is your personal information here so they'll say in order to get this job you have to provide your personal information like your birth date your social security number here's how we're going to pay you yeah and I think a lot of these appointments scans is look you're not going to get a lot of money for not working very hard this is part of a true right now right yeah the launch people want to believe that they can and they've they're talking about the fact that also they've gotten really out with a call into a high touch approach in other words instead of just sending you a quick email that says Hey make money though actually engage with the victims they will actually have them do some work for the business before they get paid sometimes they'll send a check here is your check guess what we overpaid you we need you to send us some of the money the extra money back of course the first check is a fake thank right and then you're actually sending them real dollars out of bank lots of employment scams yeah the second riskiest I was surprised about this or crypto currency scale yeah I was surprised to hear this too because crypto currencies I think it's something that people don't really understand that well we're talking about bit coin and oftentimes I think what they're appealing to people and is Hey there's this new kind of thing you can buy bitcoin and you can maximize your money like a thousand times your money and people don't really do the research here's a tip don't invest in something that you don't understand so interesting that is really good advice because they can talk at you so well and you're still single I don't understand a word you're saying but it's a state with such confidence you think okay right or something former Cork and I thought did a really admirable thing in it in a meeting probably clear that she fell victim to a scam Tony almost had a similar experience where the emails off just a little bit yeah those most at risk because you think about Barbara Corcoran and Tony to couple Katie terror very savvy very savvy people should look at rules well yeah I think that they're getting smarter and smarter you know they're they're not just sending you without cracking looking phishing emails they're actually making them look good and you really have to we would have to Microsoft I think it was maybe a year and a half ago and they showed us some of the pages and the emails that are now coming in because they watch this stuff they have a team that does this and some of them are incredibly sophisticated and unfortunately as it so often does with us as consumers you have to watch out for yourself also keep in mind we all hate to admit this but there's a little bit of a green factor you know people get excited right I can get the five grand I can make the two here and and they kinda wanna believe it because all of us might be just a little greener I tried to get the money I was surprised by another thing here to the the the most profitable for scammers tends to be these romance scams and and that's not about money scans right three thousand dollars the people yeah yeah I I never understand sending money to somebody who you don't know who you haven't met just because they're telling sweet nothings and let me set this up for you okay I actually have eight somebody that I know yeah who lost two hundred and eighty thousand dollars to romance okay and on this person I was somebody who was a little bit vulnerable but as they say in the romance scams one of the main factors a lot of people are fifty five to sixty four in a his loneliness and they really want and you know what there's very they're very clever they'll call them on the phone to develop a phone relationship with the victim okay you know the people feel like women second riskiest scam for women as you see because they they feel like they've developed a relationship with somebody now actually save them on the phone don't tell your friends and family about us they'll never understand and then they start saying well you know how I flew to South Africa I'm on my way to you I was an accident I was in an accident Michael my daughter couldn't get out of the hospital I just need to brand and then next time it might just need like for Graham yeah you know the next time it's three hundred and by then you think you've built up a relationship with someone you want to help you have is just not a real one yeah exactly one eleven you want to

"barbara corcoran" Discussed on Business Unusual with Barbara Corcoran

"Enjoyed the work in the large corporation. I can't picture that at all. I can't imagine you overwhelmed stressed. You hide it well or you. Just don't go there. I think you have to know that everything is happening for the best. I believe God is in control and whatever happens is going to ultimately be for the best. Even if it's short term pain it'll be long term gain and I've seen it over and over again throughout my life I've always seen a negative turned into a positive. Give me an example of one. That may have surprised. You a bit even if you were expecting back in two thousand and three. I launched the protocol the finishing touch to as a ladies hand shaped hair tremor and followed up with micro touch which is a pen shape. Men's hair trimmer very successful. For the first couple of years we then went out to try and sell. The business is a portion of your general business just product a business around that product. We were trying to sell them those brands and I Met with a number of large companies. Really didn't have any serious interest from anybody so we kept him. I will continue to sell them over the next several years. We made a profit by all the business we did. I kept trying to reinvent the finishing touch and low and behold fast forward I created something of far greater value and that was flawless. And you didn't expect to see that later on why because he kept at it and tried to make something similar. You always on your mind. Reinvented invented we were Innovation new product machine. So we would be looking at three thousand products year. It'd be like hard testing about sixty seventy new products a year and launching seven to ten of those ear so that was the model right and we would basically be looking for the next big thing that could block. But at the same time you know I continue to invest in a very small percentage of those that I thought had long term potential to become a brand and finishing touch was one of them. And that's been your biggest hit to date. Yes that was the most successful program to and you were able to sell that in slash year. Do you mind if I share with people. I know it's public record. What did you sell it for? We sold it for A potential of nine hundred million the reasons I say potentials because there was a percentage upfront about forty five percent of that is in what's called an earn out on L. So you only have four hundred million in the bank. That's it cash so these are now provisioned so it you know with the potential is nine hundred. Still right off the first five. It sounds like a big number to me. But we're working hard you know. And that's the other thing. Things are never as bad as they seem. And things are never as good as they seem. Things may seem horrible today and then tomorrow or next week things change and it's not so bad. Stay in the game. If you stay in the game you think things are phenomenal. Everything's going perfect. And then something happens in Knoxville. A little bit off your horse so I try and keep an even keel view. The world and I don't get too excited when things are great. I don't get too upset when things are bad because I know it's going to change. I have never known you. You had a bad day. Have you ever had a bad day? You of course we have been days. Well I've never seen you show it. What do you do for yourself when you're saying I? This is a bad day. This is a bad week. This Abed bottom line. What do you do to lift yourself up because I have this tremendous resilient mindset what I do in business when things are tough I right at the top of the page where five things I could do today to strive? Sales sales solve all problems in business. If you contrive more sales that usually takes care of a lot of stuff gets so busy in your day to day grind that you you miss an opportunity so I start to focus on. What can I do to drive sales because I know that will make me feel better because you can sell your way out of anything so focus on that? I listened to good food for the mind inspirational on Youtube. Joel Osteen is one of the greatest inspires of all time professional. Athletes have these great videos. That talk about winning and success now will change your attitude toward the day. We could actually get up and do something to make more sales because I think very often sales you to be a right mindset to be successful doing in the first place. If you're having a bad day that would not be my data. Choose to drive sales. I would wait till that day pass and getting better mood. But you're saying you go right to the table and say hey I'm GONNA drive sales today. Do things that will make me feel better so it could be having a conversation with someone who? I feel good. Every time we speak to them you've been calling Barbara Corcoran. Get to many calls for a solution here. Misery how much does your mindset or attitude influence your success. Oh you J- because one is. I am the eternal optimist as you know absolutely I always believe things are gonNA work out. Things are GONNA go well. We're going to be successful if things don't go exactly right. God's in control if you do the right thing the right thing will happen. What about when they don't work out? It doesn't shake your faith in that at all. Everything dozen a flip. It's other side and share. The shiny face is all your time line. If your time line is this week and it didn't work out this week. Yeah you'll be upset but if you look at the time line being one year five years ten years a lifetime is all gonna work out in the end. It all works out. How do you teach your children? Excellent values when they have grown up with so much affluence. I've met them all. They seem like regular kids. It's remarkable to me that the not spoiled rotten. How do you pull that off when they have so much? Well one as you said a good example they see myself and they see me to my wife both working very hard at what we do. So we're working hard. Were living reasonable. I don't have a fancy car you know. We live in a nice home but we don't live at the level we potentially could. I think it's just setting a good example and then we have a lot of very successful friends too so compared to them. My kids feel normal. If you WANNA look skinny hang out with FAT PEOPLE. I think on that note. I'M GONNA end it the best line of the whole interview. Thanks all right thank you. Let's take a short break. You talk about a company. I love my friends that did business loans..

'Shark Tank' star Barbara Corcoran's brother is 7th American tourist to have died in the Dominican Republic

"Another update for you out of the Dominican Republic Barbara Corcoran from shark tank. Her brother was found dead in his hotel room in the Dominican Republic, and the circumstance according to TMZ sound, eerily familiar to the other six mysterious tourists deaths in the country. Barbara says her brother was in the DR with a friend in April on his yearly vacation, when he died of a heart attack. There's been no autopsy. And that's what she was told that he died of a heart attack. She says her brother's friend who is staying in the same suite discover the body, but nobody knows what happens the brother John was retired owned a successful roofing company in New Jersey. They say that he loved visiting the Dominican Republic and was awaiting arrival of his girlfriend before he died. This is going to be an interesting look into a couple of things number one. How many people die in the Dominican and these high end resorts and number two? How many Americans die on vacation period in, in a year because like we said, I think they the Dominican says that there are seven million visitors annually seven million tourists and the majority of those come from the United States for their vacations. And so even if you had three and a half or four million Americans every year, going to the Dominican just by sheer percentages, you're gonna have a number of them who just die. Sure. And they're all going to I shouldn't say all the vast majority of them are going to be in resorts when they're staying there horse racing deaths. Okay. I'm listening, well because the media is over covering all of them. It sounds like it's very odd rare and the whole bit. Well, we've been making a lot of the fact they were in their hotel room. Oh. And they drank from the minibar everybody drinks from the mini bar, those are common things. Anyway, -sorts even it's, it's free. Yeah. So it's if those things were poisoned in their many bars, and they somehow are able to figure that out, that's when we're going to start to see some significant

"Them. But let me stay on what I was thinking here, I don't think it's been done before where someone chooses not to be known, period. Definitely.

The 5 Biggest Interview Mistakes That Won't Get You The Job

The 5 Biggest Interview Mistakes That Won't Get You The Job

"Interviewed thousands of people my career, and I can tell you there five mistakes that people make again, and again, and again, and so I wanted to share them with you. So that if you were out looking to get an advancement or get a new job that you could do everything right and avoid these five mistakes number one, bad handshake. You know, what the purpose of a handshake is it's to make a connection with the person. It creates a first impression is really a gesture of friendship in good faith. It was originally meant to say believe it or not. I'm not carrying a weapon that was what a handshake used three back way way way back today. It means, hey, let's be friends. There are a couple of different styles of handshakes that are mazing to me that this still out there one is the gorilla snooze. I hate it. Not only do men do it on your hands aching but women today do it wrong way to go. You know, what it conveys to me? I'm insecure, and I don't want you to know about it. Then there's the other kind of ham shake the limb. Panshir men very often do this with women. But you know, what my interpretation of it is. That means shyness I lack confidence or very anxious all of them the wrong messaging. What's the perfect handshake? It's the skin between your thumb and forefinger that actually makes the connection with the other guys skin between his thumb and forefingers shake your own hand. You could feel that connection. That's their people trust you. Next bad posture. It's amazing to me how people will walk into my office with bad posture and right away. I'm not interested in hiring them. I sit in the shark tank seed, ten hours day in six inch heels with me up on my toes was a straight back with no support from my back, and I could tell you I would never hunch over because I know the importance of bed posture when someone walks with slump shoulder, I think right away, they're nervous. They're bored. They have no confident, and when they sit and have bad posture. I think right away. They're all so lazy. I never hire anyone with bad posture. Even if it's an all day desk job because I don't believe that people are going to be alert at the ready if they don't have good posture. I believe he should practice your posture before every interview so that you walk straight. And when you sit in the chair you keep a straight back. It creates such psychological quiet impression. But makes a difference between getting a job or not next bid eye contact. It's amazing to me where people will do it. There is with him interview. Ing I. Contact in my mind is the best indication of self confidence. And looking away implies a lack of respect a lack of interest in the position or simply an inability to concentrate. I know that I contact is hard, especially when the person across from us the person in power, but I think you can really practice on holding good eye. Contact was essential. If you're going to be interviewing for something because it conveys that you are confident. I am frankly amazed that's still today. I'll be interviewing someone and their phone will ring, and I'm thinking to myself anyone who would be that self unaware that they didn't turn off their phone knowing they're coming in for an interview. Could you imagine what they'd be like if they work for me? I would never offer that person job it's over. And yet I would say one in six or seven interviews. I have the phone rings turn off your phone. And Finally, I present to you the three worst questions you could ask in any job interview. Here they come. How late to I have to work. I can't believe it. When people ask me that. I think they're not going to work, very hard. I mean, if you must ask about ours is a different way of putting it you could say, hey, what are the typical hours very different than how late I have to work, which is what so many people ask me. The next question is how do you get raises around here or another version how do people get promoted when I hear this thing. This person's going to be a pain in the neck when I have to give them a reason to promote them right away. The job offered never comes a better way of saying. This would be what would be expected of me in the first year to move ahead here the difference like nine-day and the last question, what's the vacation policy? Just don't even ask this one because it translates into how quickly can run out the door. None of us like anybody when it's all about them. Think of all the people, you know, that are all about them. You don't like them. You don't wanna be around. Well, the. Same is true of hiring. All your questions have to be about the other guy. Not about you.

How To Make Them Beg For Your Product

"Here's something that kind of bugs me all the time. Lots of entrepreneurs thinks that the product or the service that they're about to offer that business is the end all when I want to say to everyone is you can have a good product. You can have a good service. But let me tell you. It's useless unless you can create a sense of demand, if you can create a sense of demand, even for new product, Hugh have a customer who comes through door and gives you the money to buy it. So here's my advice for all these people that think it's all about the product or the service that they're about to sell. I'm here to tell you. It's all about having that, but much more importantly, creating a sense of demand that your product is irresistible. Let me give you a few examples. I have a cousin who opened and ran for many years in my hometown of Edgewater rusty's far his business when he started out had good food beautiful space, you put his life savings into it. But no one was coming to his bar until Russi came up with the idea of calling all of his friends and simply saying park your cars outside my bar that made all the difference within weeks. Rusty's bar was hopping. What had rusty figured out? Of course, he had a formula of good bar. Good service. But he finally figured out. It was the sense that everybody wanted it that would bring people in. And that's how rusty built his very profitable business. When I started my business, I had one listing for my old boss that I used to answer phones for and I was thankful for the listing. It was a one bedroom that was priced at three hundred and forty dollars a month. Yeah. I know in New York in those days way way back you get a one bedroom for three hundred forty dollars a month today. I guess that would be maybe three thousand four hundred dollars a month. But there I have one listing. What was I going to do with the one listing hopefully rent it? But I could talk about that listening every day advertise it every day. It wasn't going to get it rented until I thought of a given. The gimmick. I thought of is to build a wall in the L part of that living room and call it not a one bedroom anymore, but a one bedroom and debt now, what would you call in on the New York Times ad which was the internet of its day. Would you? Call in on the one bedroom for three forty or the one bedroom in Denver three forty. It. Was that simple gimmick that got my phone ringing off the hook. Because I understood the importance of positioning. Positioning a product that everybody wants by thinking of a simple gimmick when I needed to get attention in a very bad real estate market. But was we had no one calling in for our property. I developed something called the Corcoran report. And all it was was an addition of eleven sales. I had for the year divided by eleven average sale price. So I published that average sales price and sent it to everyone when I say published it sounds fancy when I actually did is folded up mail it to anyone who wrote for the New York Times that day, and what happened boom, I got great, publicity, and I stole my competitors market share because I was quoted in every newspaper on my new statistical report, that's a gimmick. That's creating demand for people to come in and ask to see the listings because some in the news all the time. So they figure them someone important. Today's cork freeport is social media, and I can tell you in all the business I invested in shark tank. I never invest in an entrepreneur who's not good at social media because I understand the importance of that you have to get notice and today's platform forgetting notice is in social media. I have a business named the dough bar. It's a delicious dober- that everyone who works out really is into wants to order and keep ordering more. But why they doing more not because it's the only dough bar in the United States. But because my to entrepreneurs are remarkable at social media that makes everybody wanted another business. I have is Grayson lace. One of the principals, Melissa models are closed and looks like a million bucks. She makes videos for her Facebook group of the new lines as they coming in. And what do you think Melissa has because she makes her product look so desirable because of our marketing ability, she has forty million dollars in sales. Yeah. You heard that forty million dollars in sales. Another business. I've invested in his cousins, Maine, lobster was so successful. And so consistent in how they promote and social media. They create a page for every market they open in and they let their entrepreneurs promote like crazy in their local market, and they do so well because of it they sell themselves as well as they'll obser-, and then tons of people wanna come in. And also by a franchise what fabulous promoters do. They have the best lobster rolls of anyone. Of course, they do. But that's not what they're selling. They're selling their lore of making people won a lobster roll. So if you're going to use social media, you have to be authentically yourself. This is what I've discovered people out there following on social media. Don't follow you the minute. They sense anything. That's ingenuous. They drop out people are smarter than you think they know the difference. If you're yourself on social media, and the customer can sense that you're thin typically yourself, they will follow you. And it's an following you that you could promote like crazy your product and do better and better with what you do. And what you get when you make people want you. You get sells the lifeblood of all business sales the most essential thing. But you can't do it today without being good at social media.

"Plans. Hi, my name is coffee. And I'm calling from Falls Church Virginia. My question is how much time should I be in business before I determine if it successful or should. I simply look at failed and make the termination no matter how much time I've been in the business. I would think it would be at least a year before you determine if you're on track. But I look at companies like Uber enlist who have shown no profitability, and they're doing IPO and they're worth billions of dollars. So I just wonder if looking at profit would be what to be determined or length the time in business or maybe a combination of both. Thank you. Okay coffee. I hear he going with this. And it's a very intelligent question. The kind of question where you want to make an assessment or be given a guidepost as to how to know when you're successful or not successful. But I can tell you businesses not that way, it's not an analytical exercise where you measure against some other norm. And the idea of even comparing yourself to Oberlin lift is totally the wrong way to go because they don't even have to be profitable because they millionaires and billionaires behind them it's a different game. And that's the stratosphere that so few businesses can compete with get that under your mind. Let's get down to brass tacks about your own business. Wondering if you've been in business long enough to tell if it's successful not there is no time line. There are only two questions you can ask that will tell you. Whether your possesses being successful enough to continue. The I is isn't making money is your business making money if it's making money, of course, it's becoming a success. The next is is growing, and they don't often come together. If you're making money, very often, you're not growing, if you grow you not making money if you've been in business a while, and you're still not making a profit. But your businesses growing. That's good. Because it means you're putting profits into the business rather than into your pockets. But if you're not seeing any profit or growth, well, frankly, you're not in business. What do you high in around for or at least you won't be in business for long and you need to regroup or simply close your doors? When I was filling the Corcoran group. I remember having a visceral reaction. Feeling in my gut that my God, I could feel it. I could feel it with grabbing on with grabbing on I could feel a starting to become successful. If I had to quantify that by prophet. I couldn't have done it. But if I had to look at it as far as how fast was I growing against my competition. Could clearly see that I was outpacing them. And so I knew I was going to be successful. I knew it I could feel it in my bones. But it took me a really long time to be successful. I had one hundred and fifty people working for me before even made a dime for myself. That's nuts. I was working my business almost seven years before I was making money by anyone else's standard. If they were quantifying, they'd say, you're a loser close your doors, but I had one hundred and fifty people and I had surpassed people at thirty forty fifty people. And I knew I was going to win the game. I would say that you just have to keep to those two questions. It would be a dream business. If you could make money and grow like gangbusters, but they usually don't happen at the very same time. One more thing you could use as your guide, and it's not left brain. And it's not about mass in the adding up or anything like that. And that is simply are you excited about your business?

How Straight D's Built My Business

"I got three questions this week from people that were not very good students and worried about it. I thought I would address it even though I know I've talked about it before you know, when I was in school the happiest sound the world was at three o'clock bell. When I heard that bell rang. I thought thank God. I'm out of this jailhouse off I would run as fast as I could to try to make a good day of what was already a horrible day for me being Barras in class being asked to read out loud and labeled yet again, the Dunkin school but thank God. I was kind of clever on my feet in one way when I got her school. I did not want to do homework that the other kids were doing. So I made best friends with Margaret Garrity. She was the kid down the block with the really thick glasses was an exceptional student and all I would have to do for Margaret is making new Chuck game on her sidewalk. And she would do all of my math all of my English and will of my geography and she didn't like a half hour flat. My God, it would've taken me six hours to do the same work, and I wouldn't have gotten any kind of accolades for it until market Garrity. Became my homework helper, I actually believed in school that I had a low I q thinking that an I had something to do with the as. And bees and season. For me. The diesel I got straight tease all the time. And I thought that meant that I was on the warder Chalan a really being stupid. But guess what? I wasn't. You know, what I learned? I learned that once I got that jailhouse cool school. I developed great skills and business independent of anything that I had learned in school. I found that I was gifted at certain areas because I had finesse my way through school and learn how to get good at other things that the smart kids weren't very good at I knew how to hire the right people. And guess what gave me that gift? It was because once you're loser. As a kid, you have great empathy, and you spot the losers, and you don't ever look down on anybody. When you're the dumb kid. The dumb kid doesn't get that privilege to look down on people. So as a result of that, I had empathy in spades. And that gave me the ability to read people and hire the right people for the right sharp. I always always was able to find someone to do the. Sure, I wasn't able to do. Well, like, redefining financial statement or figure out a mathematical equation. Forget it I was never gonna learn it. But in business, I learned that it can hire a lot of really really really smart people to do it for me the damn district. Kaplan, I recognized her as my future business partner because she had all the skill sets of a smart kid, and she could do them all for man. I could continue just being the chatty. Cathy, the charming kid? The one who talked everybody into doing things Estra Kaplan became my. Hi, hugh. You know sales people are key to the real estate business. And I found that in sales. I was pretty good. But I wasn't amazing. And yet I knew how identify sales people who are a lot better than me. And it was on the back of a thousand grade sales people that I built the company the Corcoran group today when I sit on shark tank, I very often have to do mathematical equations in my head like the other sharks. Trust me. I can't do it. I will actually work. Them out of my yellow legal pad that I sit there with trust me. I can't do it. But it was only two years into shark tank that I realized that Mark Cuban was really good at math. And all I ever do is ask them to do. My math format. He does it has the answer back to me. And he doesn't know it. But he's my new Margaret Garrity. So you could always find people to do the stuff you can't do and by doing that my whole life. I have been able to build a big successful business and also helped dozens and dozens entrepreneurs Bill their business because I know how to identify talent and build on it math has very little to do with almost everything in life as long as you could count change, and I can tell you people think it has a lot to do his shark tank. It has very little to do is shark tank. It's all about judging the right people. So what's most important on compensating for the skills? You don't have. Well, here's my secret formula. I only focus on the skills. I have there aren't many. I know how to size up people. I know how to motivate people. I know how to build an organizational structure those on my gifts. So I choose to build around my assets. I nor everything else I just filled on what I do. Well. And then I find somebody else to do all the stuff. I don't do. Well, so that's my formula. If you're not good at school. Don't worry about it. It's probably a very good sign that you're gonna find all the right people to help you build your empire. And that's how streak dis built my business.

"Success is a result of that bad experience because I'm driven and out to prove to the world every day of my life that I am not stupid when people in my dull life have put me down or talk down to me or dismissed me having that early experiences fabulous because I've had it, and I've learned to step up and speak up and use my bigger mouth to stand my place, get it. And so that's a huge advantage for you to stay stock in where you were as a kid without using that whole in card to make hay and make money with and make success with your out of your mind because it's an asset that most kids can take claim to. I think what you have to do as grownup where we're I started making a change was in my early twenties. When I started replacing a very negative tape that automatically kick. In whenever I was afraid put down shamed. Brought back to that same experience and the tape always went the same way. It's kinda quite have come here. God, you know. I should've stayed in my office people love me in my office. Why am I putting myself out here? I mean, who is this jerk. I hate them up about I can't do this. I'm not going to do this anymore and quit. All right. I declared war on quitting. You know what I do? Now. I replaced that tape one hundred and fifty percent with a new tape that goes like this. Listen, you jerk. You're actually talking down to me. You're actually not taking me seriously. You're actually believing that I can't compete with you. Just wait. I'm going to become your major rival. And it was that tape that I played again. And again in a cluttered competitive field on till it was so much my own that it would kick right in. And I kicked the asks of whoever was looking down at me. So if you're one of those kids that are rough start no problem, you paid your price. But my God take advantage of it as a grownup and get even. And that's all the questions. We have time for today. If you have a question, leave me voice mail in the business on usual hotline.

"I can report that everyone seems to be happy. They got started. And they love doing with the doing, but the most common complaints that. I'm hearing is about someone they've hired befell short didn't measure up someone that feeling disappointed about a need to fire. So I thought maybe I would dole out a little advice here on how to choose the right people because I think I'm pretty good at it. The biggest problem building any businesses. Always the people. What do you think businesses made out of a lot of people might say dollars and cents? I say absolutely not. It's all something built on the hearts and souls and good efforts of a lot of people. So the most important decisions in your life, actually, having to do with your business and going way beyond your businesses deciding who you wanna let in who you want to surround yourself with not includes employee's business partners, spouses and friends, I'm very particular about people, I think maybe way way way too particular about people, but I know myself knowing that I've learned to be really particular about who I let into my life. I've learned to ask myself a few simple questions before deciding who I'm going to let in or lock out, and let me share those questions with you the first question, I asked myself when I'm hiring someone to work with is do I like and trust this person that comes long before are they capable of doing the job. It's a gut decision. And if I don't feel it in my bones and my stomach. I don't choose them. I don't even look to make an excuse to myself because when I don't feel right this usually a very good reason for it, even if I can't put my finger on it. Because the way I see it our gut instinct is a concentrated dose of our lifetime of experiences. So why shouldn't I trust it without explanation? So I'm out right away. If I don't trust someone I just don't hire them in my business. If I don't like them. Maybe that sounds trite plot don't hire them either. Why would I wanna work with someone? I don't mind. And if I'm hiring someone at my work, I always try to size up. How smart and how loyal they are? Why smart? Because smart people will push you ahead and create more opportunity than you could ever do on your own and you'll say excited about it. And why loyal because if you have someone who's phenomenal working with you that you really like and then not loyal by nature. If you're gonna lose them, and that's a heartbreaker, so I need to see the natural loyalty in an individual. And the one trait that I should have perhaps mentioned right up front is that I have to hire happy people. I learned long ago that if I hire an unhappy person, there's nothing I can do that's going to change him. Why if their parents should make them happy by the age of twenty one what am I going to do to change that and make them happy people when it comes to making friends, of course, I need happy people this enough stuff that happens to you in life that you don't need to welcome on happy people around you to make you miserable. Forget it. But the second most important trait in any friendship is big heartedness big-heartedness automatically comes with a bundle of breach rates big hearted. People generous the empathetic, and they always have your back. And what could you ask for more in a good friend asking these simple questions.

"Hey, this is Barbara Corcoran. You're now to into business unusual and everything you ever learned about business. Throw it out the window. I'm going to tell you the real deal listening. Today. I'm going to answer all your burning questions about work life starting accompany getting on track and much much more be sure to call into the business on usual hotline with your question at eight Barbara that's eight eight eight B A R B R A. But I I had a fan on Twitter the gummy thinking about the word comeback. Everybody's talking about common back from disaster. It sounds pretty cool. But this guy was hit by hurricane Harvey. And it sounded to me like he was stuck trying to make a comeback with his business. And he went on to great detail. And it really broke my heart some going to talk about coming back, and what it really means. And I'd like to talk about comebacks because I've had quite a few misses myself, and I've lived through the mall, and so I am in a good position to dress the topic. Okay. First off people fix your comebacks as a spectacular event. Something maybe you've seen in the movies like the cowboy making the charge. I don't find comebacks to be that way. At all. I find that. It's a process. That's so discouraging can knock you on your ass and make you think you don't even know if you get up which direction you're gonna walk in that's pretty tough to recover from. But I can also tell you from building a business myself and working with so many entrepreneurs over the years is no such thing as a success story of any size, unless the person has been knocked down at least a half dozen times. And they've really learned the art of getting back up. So let me say a little bit more on the subject. I've always interpreted setbacks as a wakeup call. That's my spin on it because I've learned that over the years. It's an opportunity to make an abrupt change. I've always found that when things come totally out of the blue when you least expect it, and it's painful the moment, excruciatingly painful, and I think the main reason for that is because you've lost total control that you're accustomed to. But the same exact thing that happens quickly turns into the best thing that ever happened when you're able to look back now too damn bed. We can't look forward and see the future. And appreciate that. When it's happening, but it's just not in the cards. But I think I've catastrophe whether it be business a personal as a road sign giving you the opportunity change direction to actually sit down and really ask yourself. How happy were you in the direction you were traveling? Four anyway. And now what would make you much happier. I remember when my boyfriend went off and married my secretary. I thought I would die. But let me tell you something. It was the best thing that ever happened. I remember when I blew my first profit on homes on tape. Putting all my apartment's on videotape in my real estate. Brokerage come in law. So that money I thought oh my God. The first time I made money I lost all the money, but that turn into the internet. So my God. Thank God that happened. What an advantage. So a setback if you could look at it the way I've learned to see it as it really is is really the seat of comeback because it's in the pause that you give it some thought. And you get the chance to look at what you're in the first place totally different and figure out what direction you want to change. That's my spin. That's it enough on comeback.

Hi, my name is Chris O with Casey be real see I'm from the Bronx in New York City. My question is how do you keep yourself motivated when you've been working at your dreams for years? Thank you very much for my crystal. You sound like you might be a little bit disappointed like you've been working at something for years, and it's not panning out or you're not getting enough satisfaction or it's not paying off when you given the situation like that. I always think it's good to pause before you run forward. Maybe time to regroup. I would suggest that you ask yourself. What's in the way of the motivation? What's getting you down? I have found over the years at what got me down where things I was doing that. I wasn't excited to be getting done things that didn't come naturally to me things that I didn't get excited about when I woke up in the morning, and so it created kind of a general Malays where I just felt like I could jump out of Bengal. Yahoo. Another day. This is my trick that I use my whole life. And I think I've spoken about it before I would always leave my office. Not try to do the same old thing all over again. And I would go to my local public library with a yellow pad and try to get a better handle on who I was and what I was spending my time on and this is my simple formula. I would take the pad put a line down the middle right on the left side. What I love about my job put on the right side. What I hate about my job. And then it would make a long list, and I would be committed by the end of the long lists that usually took an hour or two that I was going to get rid of all the stuff I hated in my life because that's what takes you motivation away put any person onto tests. They don't like doing you'll make the miserable. And so I just IMO believer that you have to do a lot more of what you joy doing versus what you're forcing yourself to do. And So Chris will do that in your library sewer lead to I would suggest you take your list on the right side, the stuff you don't like at all. And give it away. And if the job you're in isn't tapping into the stuff, you're good at I would suggest you change your job.

"Idea to being in business. Hi, Barbara this Natasha in Dallas, Texas. I was wondering about the issue of accountability. And ownership I think it really does slow down the pace of any progress. How do you motivate people who would rather sit in the shadows and hold onto status quo rather than push things forward Natasha? It sounds to me like a you're working for big business with his little accountability. And so that becomes the norm of the day when you don't have someone as a supervisor boss leader, whatever you wish to call them telling you specifically where they want to go what they need your help and getting there, and when they needed four with that kind of clarity. You automatically read the reverse, which is people waiting for orders. UCS an excuse not to really do and not taking claim or disclaim for anything. They're involved in. I would say you're probably in a company with the wrong company culture, and unless they can move you to the boss position, and you can all change it right away. Chances are you ought to be looking for new job. That's not what you wanted to hear. But I told you straight there you go. And that's all the questions. We have time for today.

Thing else Getty yellow, Pat out put a line down the middle and on the left side. Put what I hate and start dumping every little thing. You hate about your job and your life on the left hand side. Do it with privacy. Don't allow yourself to get interrupted and don't finish list till you know, you have every single thing on it. The next thing you do is go to the other side the other side of the line. And right all the things that make you the happiest generally you'll find that list as much shorter. And you get it up pretty fast because none of us really changed so much on what we enjoy in. What we do. Well, the next step is to go to the left hand side and figure out how could I get rid of the things that are in my way, the things I don't naturally like to do things. I don't want to spend time on the things. I don't want to confront when I go into work or at home tomorrow if you can possibly delegate that list. If you're the boss do it and do it. Immediately. If you're not the boss, maybe sit down with that list in trying to think one of the job could I get at the company, I'm working out where I would do less of the stuff and go in and ask for that job. Either way my point here is if you feel stuck in your job, and you're not creative. It's because you do in the wrong stuff put any talented person in a spot where they have to do the same stuff over and over again that they don't like doing the not naturally good at and what you get is a bore aboard the outside someone who's not productive and worse than that aboard itself.

I'm going to be answering all of the great questions you guys keep sending me in on business life. How to move forward? How to jump over obstacles come on him? Good at it. And I wanna share my advice. But I think you need to sit by the door waiting for opportunity to not you'll be sitting there forever. Forget about opportunity, I know through vast experience can hide and even the worst situations and finding it some matter of believing. It's really there. I've found opportunities in the darkest times in my career because I believed really in my heart that something good had to come. And that attitude was. Start of getting the kind of vision that you could see it when it was coming. Let me give you an example. I was in the depths of a real estate recession with my back up against the wall. Knowing a lot of money to banks that I had no ability to repay. I was desperate. But I also had that optimism of knowing that when things are really really bad. This got to be something in the pile of badness at his new opportunity. So what do you think happened? I finally had a desperate idea to try to make some cash. So I took eight apartments that nobody wanted that was languishing in the market and instead of asking individual prices for the developer. I priced them all alike as simply averaged out the numbers and price them all like, I now my staff sh. We're going to have a secret sale on Friday. Everything's going to be priced alike. So bring your one customer the customer you like most to the sale and make sure you're there early. So they could pick out the best apartment. Remember, we've got top apartments lower floor apartments view apartments. No view apartments apartments with kitchens. No kitchens. And they're all priced a lake isn't that crazy will what do you think happened? My sales people showed up on that Friday morning with over one hundred eighty people in the line rather than just the eighty eight that they were permitted to bring and they bid like crazy people to grab those apartments as fast as they can. And I made over a million dollars in one hour flat. Go figure, but it wouldn't have happened. If in the darkest hour, I didn't really believe this got to be an opportunity somewhere in this mess. And I got it. I got.

And I wanna share my advice. But I you might think what you do for a living will determine a happy you'll be at work. But let me tell you wrong. It's the person you work for who's going to determine whether you're happy or miserable. You job. I never met anyone who worked for a bed boss and enjoyed the job or for that matter ever got ahead. No matter how much they liked what they did. So finding work that you like to do is the easy part finding the right boss is the more difficult part? So if you're working for a son of a gun that comes a time when you've got a fire, your boss things can get very tough. And if you have a bad boss for longtime. It can do a lot of damage to ego. I know I've had bad bosses. I know what that feels like it can make you feel less important and less respectful to yourself and lack of self respect can make you really feel stuck and never push yourself ahead. It's a dangerous situation of being. So how do you fire your boss while of course, you can actually send them packing? Although my mind I've wanted to do that a few times, but you can make a plan and give yourself a real deadline to get another position the company or. New job somewhere else outside the company people who are happy at work. Always have good bosses. I'm repeating that. Because there are no exceptions to that rule and people who are miserable at work always have bad bosses. It takes courage to fire your boss, but the confidence you gain when you've moved on will pay you back tenfold in aren't we all entitled to happiness? And now it's time to answer your questions on business.

And he would have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning. He goes on to say, you know, the Justin is obviously clean himself up that it had to be a decision that Justin made because they all did interventions right before his. Arrest?

"A five billion dollar business and now i make smart investments in new businesses on shark tank this is barbara corcoran and you're listening to business unusual presented by indeed today on business unusual i'll answer your questions about business motivation life or anything else on your mind but first over the years i've gotten really good at creating happy teams i did building my real estate company and do with all the businesses i buy on shark tank and a happy team is what you'll need if you're going to build any great business i used to hire some miserable people but i quickly learned that one miserable person in a pool of thirty happy people brings a whole team down i finally realized that if someone's parents couldn't give them a positive attitude before they came to work for me it was nothing i could do to make them happier once they were hired i personally love firing chronic complainers the way i looked at it i was simply protecting my happy family from being sucked down by someone miserable and in sales one negative persons like poison to the entire sales team because only positive people are able to sell once you surround yourself with a group of pleasant people to work with it's easy for a boss to make all her happy people even happier by recognizing every good deed that's done if you can make every person feel appreciated and valued for the role not everyone does a better job i specialize in giving recognition to every good deed and accomplishment at work i often gave spontaneous bonuses and i gave out a usual ribbon for every million dollar sale now that might sound silly to your ears but every agent loved the recognition and competed for those silly goal ribbons my top broker carried shang had so many goal ribbons blanketing all her walls and our office that i was forced to buy her a gold chair and she loved it i got in the habit of giving flowers and gifts for any good deed i spotted i even send flowers to agents who worked for my competitors to congratulate them on their big deals and that turned out to be my best recruiting tool no one expects flowers from their competitor real estate sales is an industry with high turnover but my real estate company had no turnover because my agents and employs were appreciated and as a result they were always smiling and they never left if you want to build a successful business higher happy people and make them know how happy you are to have.
