Show Notes

 

  • The laws of lifetime growth, always make your future bigger than your past.
  • Why great entrepreneurs become great… is that they hang around with other great entrepreneurs.
  • “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” ― Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
  • One of the things that really great entrepreneurs are always reminding themselves of, is that whatever they did yesterday that was last night’s play.
  • The really great entrepreneurs have the quality of not taking the audience for granted.
  • There’s two things that you need to know to become an entrepreneur in the beginning. One is courage and the other is ignorance.
  • Courage is that you know whatever happens, you will have the ability to respond.
  • Where a lot of entrepreneurs really burnout is that they forget, that they’re actually in the brain business. They’re not in the body business. In other words it’s not how many hours or days your body is at work. It’s what’s your brain doing.
  • Having lots of free time gives your mind rejuvenation and refreshment, when your brain is really at its top function you can achieve things very quickly and come up with ideas very quickly.
  • One of the secrets of entrepreneurship is the willingness to fail really fast.
  • In the real world it’s called failure, in the marketing world it’s called testing.
  • One of the factors that design your income, your life, and who you are, is the kind of people that you hang out with.
  • No matter how smart you are… there’s somebody out there who’s smarter.
  • Joy’s law is the principle that “no matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else.”
  • The real secret being a great salesperson, is first being a great marketer.
  • Great marketing means constantly increasing your ability to catch other people’s attention and interest, and doing it at a lower and lower cost every year.
  • There are things that are timely that are going to make you successful (things that change throughout time), but then there are those principles of success that are “timeless” and constant.
  • “The only thing wrong with capitalism is that it was named by its enemies.”― F.A. HAYEK
  • The two entrepreneurial attitudes are… 1) you’re not entitled to anything without creating value for someone else and 2) you are 100% responsible for your life and success.
  • Marketing is how you get people to show up who are pre-interested, pre-motivated, pre- qualified, and pre-disposed to give you money.
  • “As a marketer you want to enter a conversation that’s already existing in the prospects mind.” ― Robert Collier
  • All sales are actually a conversation… and conversation means two-way communication.
  • You make far more impact on people with questions than with answers.
  • The Dan Sullivan R Factor Question: “If we were having this discussion 3 years from today, and you were looking back over those 3 years, what has to have happened in your life, both personally and professionally, for you to feel happy with your progress?”
  • D.O.S. = Dangers, Opportunities, and Strengths: What dangers do you have now that have to be eliminated over the next three years? What opportunities have to be captured and what strengths do you have that need to be maximized?
  • The more that we can move out of our own head and into our Clients’ head, and understand how they’re looking at the world… and then line that up with what we can actually do for them… that’s when we have a real value creation proposition.
  • People do not reach their opportunities if they don’t eliminate their dangers… real and psychological dangers.
  • Most of the things that keep people from reaching their opportunities are these dangers that are literally in their head.
  • Money earned ethically is a byproduct of value creation.
