Good Morning, Colorado, you're listening to the Daily Sun-Up with the Colorado Sun. It's Wednesday October 6th   Today - A wildfire mitigation project taking place at the top of Monarch Pass looks like it'll be a model for timber harvesting in steep terrain - which is often extremely challenging.   But before we begin, let's go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett's book “Colorado Day by Day”:   Today, we take you back to October 6th, 1838, during the height of the fur trade. On this day one of the trade's casualties, Fort Jackson, met its end when its largest competitor bought it out, removed its goods, and closed it down. The company, Fort Jackson, had been named after the recently retired President Andrew Jackson.   Now, our feature story.   When foresters and loggers harvest beetle kill in Colorado, they tend to stick to the flatlands. The steep stuff, which Colorado has a lot of, can be tricky … usually involving lots of on-the-ground manpower and helicopters. A wildfire mitigation project at the top of Monarch Pass is proving to be a model for timber harvesting in steep terrain and it's also a model for local, regional and federal support for wildfire mitigation across an entire watershed.    And Before we go, here are a few stories that you should know about today:   Denver voters approved a green building ordinance -- the so-called “green roofs” law in 2017 -- but the Mile High City has not seen a sweeping renaissance of green construction. Builders say COVID-19 adaptations and rising construction costs have forced owners to delay renovations that could trigger the environmentally friendly construction regulation.   The University of Colorado health system has fired one hundred and nineteen employees for not getting a COVID-19 vaccine. UCHealth employees had until October first to be vaccinated or apply for a medical or religious exemption. Those fired employees can re-apply for positions once they receive their vaccination.    A class action lawsuit filed in Denver District Court says one of Colorado's largest landlords has failed to fix serious issues at its five-hundred and sixty one -unit Mint Urban Infinity apartment complex. The class-action lawsuit argues Cardinal Group Management has ignored many l tenant complaints that include broken air conditioning, no hot water, insect infestations and sewage backing up into units. The Denver-based Cardinal Group, which manages 20,000 units in 28 apartment complexes in Colorado, received a federal Paycheck Protection Program loan for its 319 employees and had that three-point-seven million dollar loan forgiven earlier this summer.    For more information on all of these stories, visit our website, www.coloradosun.com.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

   22 year old Independence police officer Blaize Madrid-Evans has lost his life after a shootout with a violent criminal that had just been released from jail.  Blaize had only been on the  job for 2 months and the criminal had only been out of jail two weeks.  How is this possible?    Joe Biden can't remember the name of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at a live news conference they had together.  Joe called him, "Umm... that fella down under."  But it least they weren't talking about anything important.  It was just about arming Australia with Nukes and Nuclear Submarines to help defend against China.     One state in India has 240 million people and no covid deaths this week, they've declared it covid free.  They are less than 6% vaccinated.  How are they doing this?  For months, they've been treating covid with a common, cheap drug and it's working for patients and working as a deterrent for the people around them.    Travis Kelce says the Super Bowl loss embarrassed him.  Just what this stud needs is extra motivation.    Sporting KC is on fire.... at the top of the West after another shutout at home.  A 4-0 drubbing of Minnesota is the latest for a team that just rolls along.    And Salvy is closing in on Johnny Bench with HR number 44.

The BarcaBreakdown discuss, in a turn of events, after two years at FC Barcelona, Antoine Greizmann returned to Atletico Madrid. This comes at the final window of the transfer window on 31 Aug 2021. Barca agreed to release Greizmann on loan for $10 Million and an obligation to buy for $40 Million. We discuss what this means for the team and our initial reactions to this news. Ultimately, Barcelona's financial troubles and disastrous leadership of Bartomeu have plagued the team resulting in some very surprising news. At the end of the day, Laporta has been losing our trust as we question his election promises and where we are today. Greizmann will join the 2019-2020 La Liga Champions with Luis Suarez in an attempt to take the title 2 years in a row. Another Dutchman arrives at FC Barcelona from Sevilla, Luuk De Jong. Barca will cover his wages with an option to buy. This comes when we lose Greizmann and still have a roster of attackers on injury including Augero, Dembele, and not yet to return to live play, Fati. Lastly, we had Ilaix Moriba and Emerson depart and signed to RB Leipzig and Tottenham Hotspurs, respectively. Ilaix has been on his way out and will be leaving for $15 Million. Emerson only being at the club for 2 months comes at a surprise as Laporta had stated “Emerson will stay for many years”.

Today, we're going to be talking about the two step framework that you can use today to go from one to two closes to four plus monthly. Okay. And the reason I'm seeing one to two to four, plus this is primarily for people that haven't broken through that barrier yet. Hey, that being said, if you are already closing, you know, four or 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 deals, you can implement these things and they are going to help. But the reason I'm saying from one to two to four plus is because this process, I think is the number one thing missing from people that are trying, they start hitting those consistent four plus a month. Okay. And we'll get into that. But before we jump into the topic of today, I wanted to give my boy Surge creator, a shout out.Speaker 2 (01:40):If you don't follow a Surge, he is, uh, helping a lot of guys in the solar industry, crush it on social media on Instagram, Facebook, if you don't, if you haven't heard of this guy, go shoot him a follow, look them up.

So we'd love to hear what you guys think of that.Speaker 2 (02:28):Do you want more video? Do you guys like the video or are you just audio people personally? I love the podcasts. I listen to podcasts when I'm at the gym, when I'm driving to deals, when I'm driving out to my turf, to my area. So I'm a huge proponent of podcasts, but I know there's a lot of people that prefer the video. So anyways, let me know what you think. I think it's good to have both options, video and audio, but we're going to be posting more and more video. And we're going to try to get some of these, uh, interviews on a YouTube. So let us know if you vibe with that, let's jump into the episode. So the two-step framework to go from one to two to four plus deals in a month. The reason we're talking about this today is because I'm actually coaching.Speaker 2 (03:19):Um, we are doing, we are accepting a coaching clients in our Solciety, inner circle. If you want to find out more about that, go to Solciety.co. There should be an inner circle tab. You can hit that and book a call. If you're interested in some, um, personal coaching and masterminding to take your cells, um, your closes up by 40%, 40 to 50% in a month. Okay. But, um, anyways, the reason I'm talking about this, one of our coaching clients in the inner circle, he is right now, he's not, he's primarily setting appointments and he has closers, but he's working up to, um, close his own deals. And he tells me, Taylor, my goal is in the next two months that we're working together. I want to get closing my own deals and I want to have five deals closed in a month. So I'm like, all right, that's an awesome goal, dude, let's, let's hit it.Speaker 2 (04:20):Let's go for it. So we've been working together three weeks or so now we're talking, we're talking, he's making some small improvements, but our last call is the reason for this episode, as we get on the call. And, um, he didn't have, he didn't have much no improvement from the previous week. We talked and I started realizing that a few of our recent calls that we had is we were talking about almost all of the sales techniques. He's like, Taylor, what do you do on the doors? What do you, how do you overcome this? Objection, how do you get more referral? All these cells, specific things, very technical what's, which is awesome to know all the technical sales knowledge and that's going to create improvements. But as I was trying to think, why, why is he making slower improvements? And this was the reasons cause we're focused so much on these little technical things that we weren't, we weren't talking as much about what needed to be talked about.Speaker 2 (05:25):And that is the behind the scenes, things that consistency, the routines that showing up every day, working the exact hours that you need, and then making sure you have your routines dialed in. So I started realizing this I'm like, dude, before we get in all the technical sales stuff, again, let's talk about what are you doing every day to show up? What are you doing everyday to be consistent in your morning routine and your evening routine in your hours knocked in your appointments booked. And that's the purpose of these KPIs, right? The key performance indicators is they help you see where the improvements need to be made. So for those that are training new teams, think about that. I think this is the number one thing for newer reps to take them from the couple deals a month to start closing four plus a month, because that's the thing that people don't talk about as much as they need to that.Speaker 2 (06:27):I see everyone wants to talk about the sexy sales techniques, the sexy closing lanes, the things that you can say on the door, what's the magic words that people are going to sign up instantly. But guess what if you're not putting in consistent hours, if you are not, if you don't have your Headspace dialed in, if you're not there mentally, if you're not following your routines, your morning routine, it's going to make it super tough to have success. Even if you are the world's greatest, closer, even if you know all the cool lanes, even if you know all the good stuff. If you read all of the sells books in the world, none of that matters if you can't be consistent. And if you can't do the small little things, day after day decree success, okay. And I brought these books up quite a few times in the podcast, but go read.Speaker 2 (07:15):I'm looking at it right now on my bookshelf. It's the slight edge and the compound effect. They talk about it. And there's a reason why those are two of the best. I would say personal development books that have been written because they're not talking about secret lines. They're just talking about being consistent, doing something small every day. And that's, what's going to create a massive results in your life. So think about that. What is the things, what are the things that you can do every day to create the mental space you want to get in? When I was at this knock star event, um, a couple of weeks back, we've been talking about it kind of all lately. Um, Taylor McCarthy, Danny Pessy two awesome, awesome guys in the door to door training industry. Um, they're changing the game of, for solar training. They got some great content, but I was at their mastermind event and they're in key west Florida.Speaker 2 (08:15):And this is something that Taylor McCarthy was talking about. He was telling us how he closed five deals in a day, all self-generated just him going out and knock. And he closed five in a day. And then he closed like 14 in the week. Um, yeah, all knocking himself, no leads, no setters, none of that. And someone was asking him like to, what did you do to create that? And the question he threw at us, he asked us to write down what our perfect day of knocking looks like. What's our knocking process in what he meant by that is, and this is a good exercise for, to go through. Um, if you have a notepad or something, it's be a great time to pause and write the answer to this down. Think back to the time when you had a massive day on the doors, massive day, closing to some of your most successful days, what were the things you did during that day?Speaker 2 (09:17):Okay. Maybe you haven't had a ton of success yet, but write them down. Think what were the routines you went through? How did you feel? What were the hours you worked make a checklist of those things. Okay. And this is something that Taylor had us do and kind of rate ourselves on. Okay. I'm sure you can notice a difference in the things you did on your days of massive success versus days where you didn't have much, much success. So notice those things. Did you take a, I dunno, ice bath that day? Did you do some meditation? Did you exercise? What type of food were you eating? How many hours did you work? Hey, some key things you can notice if you went through this exercise. Okay. And now start to think about, are you doing those things? Day after day, are you implementing falls? Little things that gave you the success that day, are those things that you implement in your day-to-day routine?Speaker 2 (10:21):Maybe so, maybe not. So what McCarthy told us is his perfect day and knocking looks like this, and this is how he, he got the five deals in a day, in 14 in a week. He said, guys, my perfect day of knocking is this nine 30 to 10. I knocked my first door. That's when I get out there before I get out, though I go in, I, yeah, my cooler full of ice. That's this trigger habit. Any of you have read, um, the power of habit. That's a great book as well, Charles Duhigg um, they talk about what are the triggers that you can put in a place for your habits. That's something to think about. So for those that are out knocking, what type of triggers do you have that can trigger you into knocking mindsets for Taylor McCarthy? He goes, and he fills up his cooler with ice.Speaker 2 (11:15):He goes to the gas station and then he gets all his drinks, his Gatorades. Cause he's not, he's not taking breaks to go, come back and go to gas stations. Right. He's gearing up for a full day and knocking. So from nine 30 to 10, before he's going to a gas station getting his ice. That's his trigger for his habit, which is getting out and knocking. So once he gets his ice, he knows, right? It's game time. That's his equivalent of like, I dunno, LeBron James chalking up his hands before the game, throwing it in the air. This is what Taylor McCarthy does. He gets his eyes. So I think what are, what's the key, what's the trigger you can put into place for when you're knocking for, when you're closing that can get you into that, right? Mindset can let your brain know. All right.Speaker 2 (12:04):It's time to go. Once I do this, that means it's time to go knock stem, to go close timing, to go work it because this job, as you know, you don't have people babysitting you. Lot of the times. There's a lot of people, a lot of solar guys out there that are getting out by themselves, much easier with the team, got respect for guys that are lone Wolf in it. But think of some trigger you can put into place. And then after that to McCarthy, he's hitting his first door from nine 30 to 10. And then from 10 to 12, he calls that just as like extra bonus time as bonus sales, anything he gets from 10 to 12 that's, um, just kind of icing on the cake. He's not necessarily expecting any deals, any, he closes from men, but he's going out there and he's just trying to talk to people.Speaker 2 (12:58):And then from what he does after that, he breaks it into, uh, quarters. And I guess it's not really for, I think he called them quarters, even though it's kind of three times thoughts. But instead of thinking, I'm knocking all day long, 10 to 12 is a bonus extra curricular time. 12 to three is his first quarter three to six is a second quarter and six to nine is his third quarter. And that's another pro tip right there. If you are knocking, um, you know, really any amount of time, make sure you break up your hours and it's something like that. The brain can manage quarters and little chunks of time, a lot better than it can. All right. We're going to be out here eight hours. That sounds pretty daunting. Right? So break it up into chunks. And that's what he does. That's his perfect day knocking every time there's a end of a quarter, 12 to three, he's going back to his car.Speaker 2 (13:58):He's getting a Gatorade, he's getting a snack, taking a little break. Okay. But he's not sitting in the car. He's not hanging out there. That's what he does. Okay. So the point of all this, make sure you have your perfect knocking day in place in the two-step framework is this number one, get a list of all the habits that are, um, contributing you, having success, write down exactly what your routines need to be. Write down the things that are helping you that have helped you have big days. And once you identify all of these habits, for example, you know, you craft your morning, your team, you exercise, you get out of bed at a specific hour, you do your meditation. This is what I talked about with my client. And then you make your green smoothie. It doesn't necessarily have to be these things, but these are just examples of things you can throw into your dailies habits.Speaker 2 (14:55):You can track. And then the other thing we put into place for my coaching student there is he wanted to be on the doors at one o'clock okay. Maybe it's different. Maybe your, maybe your goal is to just knock four hours for the day or go to X amount of appointments. But whatever your goal is, whatever you know is going to help you to have success. That's what you need to be tracking, measuring, and adjusting. So for my student, it was, he wanted to be on the doors by one, and then he wanted to be knocking until eight 30. Okay. So what we did is we assigned points to all these habits and all these things that he's trying to put into place because at the end of the day, he knew, he knew a lot of they close. It is a lot of the lines they say on the doors, but what he is missing and the reason he's not getting four plus deals in the month right now is because first he needs to get consistent with these things.Speaker 2 (15:53):First, he needs to get consistent with being out on the doors at a specific time with doing his perfect morning routine. Okay. And so if you're not closing four plus deals, or even if you are, this is a great exercise to go through, start tracking these habits, figure out what you're missing, write them all down and then assign a point value to them. That's what we've put into place. Okay. So maybe you're getting a point for waking up on time. Maybe you're getting a point if you're a green smoothie and then give yourself a couple of points for getting on the door as it can at a consistent time. And for him, it was, he wanted to talk to 15 homeowners in a day as he was out there. Cause that's what he can control. Right? He can't necessarily control how many appointments he books, but he can control how many people he talks to out there.Speaker 2 (16:48):Okay. So if you are for a rep or if you were training reps or even, yeah, if you are having success out there, go through this framework, all right. Write down the habits to things you want to be improving and then track them. Okay? This is something that every rep should do every week. Check these old things, give yourself points for them, make it a game, gain a guarantee. It's going to be something that increases the amount of cells, especially if you haven't tasted a ton of success yet, it's going to be the thing that if you are only closing one or two deals a month, just doing this, making this little change, tracking, measuring, adjusting, and seeing what's missing, that's going to be the number one thing. They can take you to four paws deals in a month. So try it, train your reps on it.Speaker 2 (17:40):Hey, let me know what you think. Share it with someone that's having trouble in their routines or being consistent and keep crushing out their hope. The end your summer is going awesome. Make sure they push super hard these months. Cause this one people are getting their high electric bills. Hope you enjoyed the episode. And next time don't miss out because we're going to have someone that is doing awesome things. His name's Dan Dunn. He is the CEO of harness power. It's a company that's, I think they're in four or five different states and his reps are doing awesome. He's doing awesome things in his company. So you're not gonna miss out on what he has to say next time on the Solarpreneur podcast. So keep crushing and we'll see you soon.Speaker 3 (18:28):Hey, Solarpreneurs quick question.

My name is Taylor Armstrong and I went from $50 in my bank account and struggling for groceries to closing 150 deals in a year and cracking the code on why sales reps fail. I teach you to avoid the mistakes I made and bringing the top solar dogs, the industry to let you in on the secrets of generating more leads, falling up like a pro and closing more deals. What is a Solarpreneur you might ask a Solarpreneur is a new breed of solar pro that is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve mastery and you are about to become one. What's up Solarpreneurs! Your secret weapon to closing...Speaker 2 (00:45):You're about to find out what that is and how to use it and how to increase your closing ratio by at least 10%, all that, and more in today's episode, let's jump into it. My name's Taylor Armstrong. I'm here to help you close more deals, generate more referrals and make it more enjoyable to be in this awesome solar industry. Hope you're doing well. My voice sounds a little bit nasally it's because we had a little bit of a crisis. Just got back from an event and the knock star event in key west Florida, and a little weekend getaway after that got back and we noticed something smell and super strange in the house, thought it was the trash went and took the trash out. Then, uh, hit the gym. After that, when I got back, it still smelled even worse, like what is going on here?Speaker 2 (01:39):So I'm like, okay, I go and decide to get a drink from the fridge, open up the fridge. And I noticed there's like these fruit flies all over the place. I'm going to kind of, that's weird. Then I open up the freezer. This is our spare Ridge. We have, uh, in our second bedroom here, open up the freezer and just the nastiest thing I've ever seen. All this meat just gone that ground Turkey, chicken, apparently our fridge and our freezer got shut off. I don't know what happened, but just nastiest smell. You've ever smelled a smell like a dead body in there. And I'm having nightmares about it. I don't know if I need meat for a couple of days, at least. So anyways, long story short, that is why my place smells terrible right now. Got all the windows open. So you can probably hear crickets chirping outside stuff going on, because look, if I close the windows, I'm going to pass out right now.Speaker 2 (02:37):So that's my explanation of why it might be some little nasally or something going on here, but let's jump into it without further ado. I'm going to tell you guys about a secret that I was presented with at this event. And if you haven't followed Taylor McCarthy, Danny, PESI over at knock star, they're doing awesome things. Nominee. I'm going to be sharing a lot of what they shared with us and also just networking with other people there. This is why it's important that you go to events. You don't have to go to every event. Okay? Sometimes I get a little carried away. You go into too many events. I know I've talked about that previously in the podcast, but try to go to, I don't know, an event a quarter or at least a couple of times a year, right? Pick a few events that you can go to to further your craft and network with other people.Speaker 2 (03:31):Okay? Cause that's what it's all about. That's how you're going to make improvements. They say your network is your net worth. And I can definitely attest that because some of the things you learn, not from the people, not only from the people speaking, but from the people you associate with, it's that one thing that can possibly take your business to another level. Now I'm going to share one thing that I think will help you take your closing percentage to another level. And I'm saying this because it comes, this is what a couple of guys at the event, actually, multiple guys are phone. This exact closing process and their closing ratio is at like 89 to 90%. Super ridiculous. And then if you follow Taylor McCarthy, he is closing, you know, insane amounts of deals. He closed five deals himself. The other day just went out and knocked the doors, close five in a day.Speaker 2 (04:27):And I think before that he had closed like 18 in two weeks. He's he's not doing online leads. He's not getting referrals. These are fresh doors knocked. Most of them close on the spot and that's how he does it. And so this is what he does. I'm going to share it with you. And I'm going to give you guys this sheet that he shared with us, okay. I adopted it for a Solarpreneur. This is a Solarpreneur edition. So it's got some bells and whistles on it and I'm going to gift it to you for free. All you have to do is go to sor, uh, sorry. It's closer.solarpreneurs.com. That's closer.solarpreneurs.com. So head over there and you're going to enter your email. I'm going to gift you this sheet, this template adapted first of all, printers, right? I'm not, I'm not stealing the exact sheet, but I'm going to adapt it, added a few things and need to think, um, Alex Smith, he's actually going to be on the next episode cause he's another person that's using this sheet and is closing 89%.Speaker 2 (05:36):He's actually going to be in the next podcast you hear. So we might expound on that a little bit, but head on over to that website type in your email, and you're going to get instant access to this sheet and what it is. Okay. Here's where you can start taking some notes. It's basically a comparison of what they're doing right with the current utility company versus what they're going to get with solar. And here's why this is so cool. Even last week I went to a dual, I closed it up, but the lady's biggest concern. She's a Filipino lady down here in San Diego. She's like Taylor, I've switched, I've switched, uh, cell phone companies. I've switched, um, you know, satellite companies, cable. And they've all told me I'm going to save money, but then there's always like hidden fees, something too good to be true.Speaker 2 (06:29):I just don't believe that it's going to work out the way you're saying and ended up overcoming her concerns, overcome their objections. But the biggest thing after that, she kept on focusing so much on the total price. Her panels were going to cost her like 40 grand. She needed decent amount of panels up there. And I kept on saying, you're going to pay like 80 grand to the utility company or the same amount of time. So what's the big deal. So like, yeah, that's so expensive. I don't think people pay that much for solar and it's so many panels. So I had to just like drill it into her head. Just repeat after, repeat after, repeat that. Yeah, but you're not paying anything upfront. You're just redirecting your power. It's going to be cheaper monthly bill. And she kind of got it. But now that I'm looking back, if I were to use this sheet that you're going to get access to, it would have helped so much because it's just an apples to apples comparison.Speaker 2 (07:30):What they're getting right now with utility versus what they're going to get going solar. Okay. So if you downloaded the sheet, if I were you, I would pause right now, go head on over to close.solarpreneurs.com and just download it, putting your email, okay. Get it. And then you have this in front of you. But what you're going to see is it's just, it's nothing super fancy, but it's a line down the middle of the sheet. And then you're going to see two spaces. You're going to see for the current utility company versus what they get with solar. And then it's going to have a bunch of different, um, well, we'll just break it down here. So it's going to have your offset. So just the offset of energy, obviously with the utility company, I mean, it's just a hundred percent offset, right? I mean, I don't know.Speaker 2 (08:22):Um, with that, it's more just comparing like with solar, we're going to give them a bigger offset, right? So this is just like, and see that they're not getting extra power. They're going to pay for the extra power, right. With the utility. But with solar me, we're going to give them 115% offset, which is what we usually do here. So it's comparing that. So all these different boxes, it's just a line down the middle and then it's going to give them just visually, they're going to be able to see what the difference is. They're getting with solar. And that's one of the things we learned when you go in your presentations, all you say is Mr. Homeowner. My job is very simple. Actually, all I'm going to do is just draw a line down on the Nova sheet. So you can see which what you're getting now versus what would happen with the solar.Speaker 2 (09:07):If we did get your home approved on it. That makes sense. Great. If we would submit an application, see if we can get your home approved, if not, we're not going to do anything, but that's all it is just going to draw a line down the middle of the middle of this sheet and we'll show you the comparison. That's a great way to preface what you're going to do. And then again, if they can see this visually, it's going to make it so much easier to give them, get that in their heads, get the comparison. And I know if I would've had this the other week, instead of having to just repeat after repeat, after repeat, I was just talking, right. I wasn't using the other means of communication, which is visually, which most people are visual learners. So if you can get them even write in themselves, but more importantly, taking in visually, then they're going to grasp what you're telling them much quicker.Speaker 2 (09:57):Okay. So the first one is offset the second space on there, you're going to see as monthly. So that's talking about what they're paying monthly to the utility currently, right? So monthly, maybe it's 150 with solar moves can be a hundred bucks. So you're going to write that name with them and you're going to get them obviously to agree out. So as you're presenting this, you're going to be asking them. So how much do you pay monthly and get them to tell you we're going to do another episode on questions that you can ask. Cause that's actually the next takeaway I got from the event that I'm going to start improving right away is just better questions. If you can help the customers, um, the homeowners really realize these things themselves versus you just telling them that's way more powerful than you telling them. So ask them questions, Mr.Speaker 2 (10:47):Homeowner, how much you paid monthly. Okay. So here's what would happen with the solar is instead of paying 150, you would only pay a hundred bucks. Okay. And then yearly do the math with them. Make sure it's crystal clear. Make sure they understand it. So yearly 150 adds up to 1800, right? Versus a hundred adds up to 1200. So that would be a $600 difference right. For the year. Okay. Now inflation. This is where you want to make sure you have proof of what you're saying because people are skeptical out there. If you just start throwing out numbers, you definitely want to be able to back it up so you can ask them inflation. Mr. Homeowner, how much do you think inflation is right now? 3%. Okay. So 3%. But with electricity here's, what's been happening. They just had a 10% rate increase. And this is where I like to pull up proof of what's been happening.Speaker 2 (11:41):So either go to it, depending on what market you're in find proof. Right? And I've talked about this before, bookmark your different folders and where you can just pull up this ammo of the rate increases or whatever's happened. So pull that up with them and say that they can see and then agree on a number. So is it fair to say that they're going up five to 7%? Okay. Whatever it is. Put down a number and then with solar, assuming you are doing financing, right. 0%. Okay. There's not going to be an escalator. So 0%, then you're building value in all these things. Okay? So I'm giving you the spark Noax spark notes version, but obviously you want to build value. You want to tell stories. You want to ask them great questions, which again, we'll do another episode on, okay. You're going to see next a spot that says interest.Speaker 2 (12:31):That's where you can talk about. Okay. Well right now, how much do you think it costs to maintain the infrastructure of the utility company? It's like a hundred years old. Right? Probably be pretty expensive. So in all to be blunt, you guys are paying a hundred percent interest right now. You're paying for all the repairs of the utility. They're putting band-aids on all the difference. Um, repairs are making on the equipment. So you're paying interest in that. Guess what? With solar, it's only going to be 2.9% or whatever it may be. Okay. You can put down the interest and then tax credits. Okay. With their utility. How much do you guys get any like tax benefits, paying your electric company? Have they ever given you like cash back or anything? No. Okay, cool. So here's, what's cool about the solar. Your neighbors have liked that they've gotten money back.Speaker 2 (13:25):Federal government is incentivizing people to go solar. So for this year, luckily got extended because of COVID. But they're going to give you 26% of the value of the system back in the taxes, in the form of credits. So for you, it's going to be about nine grand. Okay. Whatever it is, write it down, added home value. Again, something you want to show them proof for. Okay. But at a home value, maybe it's 15 to 20 grand pull up the Zillow article, pull up whatever approves you had, show them that they're going to get some value added to their home in California. We're saying, Hey look, have you probably noticed all the new homes are being built with solar? Have you seen that? Yeah, that's because they actually passed a law that all new homes need to be built with store hours. So obviously it's helping them sell quicker and for more.Speaker 2 (14:14):Okay. And then 25 year savings break down the numbers, break down what they're going to save 20 five-year cost investment. And then you can just add up. Okay. And here's where you can just write. Um, you can just add up straight what they're paying for utilities. So if they're paying 150 average, 1800 a year, Mr. Homeowner, what does the number 18 grand represent to you? That's how much you spent in paint over 10 years. Right? So put that down then you put plus inflation. So 20 year costs, double, that would be 36 grand plus inflation. So 25 year cost would be, what does that have that a 45, I think 45 plus inflation. Okay. So you don't have to get, yeah. You don't have to, you know, break it down. Exactly. But put the plus inflation so they can see that you're giving them like the bare minimum numbers.Speaker 2 (15:09):Okay. And then once you do this, they have all side by side. Hey, and what's really cool about this is you can leave this page with them. So guess what they're going to have in their head? My customer, the previous week, she's thinks she's focused so much on the 40 grand she's going to spend. But if I would have left this with her, she has this in front of her. She says, okay, I'm paying. Yeah. With solar, I'm paying 40 grand. But wow. Look at this. I'm actually saving 60 grand and that's. Yeah. And that's like without the inflation factor into. Okay. So start using this. I'm excited to hear what you think about it. Okay. And I'm just gonna, yeah. I'll, I'll be blunt. I haven't started using it yet because this is just content. We got straight from the, some of these top closers at the event.Speaker 2 (16:01):Yeah. But I'm just going off what I hear other people, all of the things I'm sharing, I'm just starting to implement it myself. Okay. So if other people are getting awesome results with it, it's all about the results, right? You follow people that are getting insane results. And that's what I'm sharing with you here. I'm sharing you something that people are getting insane results from 80, 90% closing ratios. So start using this. That's why I wanted to gift it to you for free. Again, head on the closer.solarpreneurs.com. You can get a copy of this and just print them off, print off 10 of them, try it this week, leave it with your homeowner, leave it with your next close. And let me know if it helped you. Hey, so I'm going to start implementing it, excited to hear what our Solarpreneur crowd thinks of it.Speaker 2 (16:50):Let me know if it's helped you and send it to someone, send it someone on your team that could also use some help in their closes. And most importantly, drill practice, rehearse, rural play like this roll. Role-play the sheet like crazy. And then come up with great questions that you can use as you're explaining it to the homeowners you present too. So that's what we got today. Hope this was valuable to you.
