Why should you start a company or have a business? Making money should not be an entrepreneur's primary goal or only reason. Property management growth expert and founder/CEO of DoorGrow, Jason Hull, talks about four reasons for starting a company or having a business. Many entrepreneurs mistakenly think the goal is to exit and retire early. However, if you follow my four reasons, you won't want to leave because you'll be giving up something that's really important to you. You'll Learn... [02:20] Money: Doesn't always make a successful business owner happy but miserable. [03:09] Four things are probably more important than money for having a business. [03:19] Side Effects: Being a big bottleneck or cutting operational costs. [04:36] Jason's four reasons for starting a company. [04:47] Reason #1: Fulfillment: It should be a vehicle to give you fulfillment in life. [05:30] Reason #2: Freedom: It's what you achieve, why you want to be entrepreneurs. [08:04] Reason #3: Contribution: Businesses should solve real marketplace problems. [10:31] Reason #4: Support: It's a vehicle to create contributions and change the world. [10:55] Business Model: Resources, money, staff create contributions, make difference. [12:17] Why not start a business? For most people, it's safety and certainty. Tweetables “There's something more that entrepreneurs need to be focused on than just making money.” “If you have these four things and you're in alignment with these four things, you then have a business that you love.” “The reality is there's nothing in your business in the long run that you have to do. There's nothing. You can offload any pieces of the business that you don't enjoy.” “Entrepreneurs—we really want to make a difference in the world. We want to contribute. We want to feel like we're adding value.” Resources DoorGrow and Scale Mastermind DoorGrow on Instagram DoorGrow on YouTube DoorGrowClub DoorGrowLive Transcript Welcome, DoorGrow hackers, to the DoorGrowShow. If you are a property management entrepreneur that wants to add doors, make a difference, increase revenue, help others, impact lives, and you are interested in growing your business and life, and you're open to doing things a bit differently, then you are a DoorGrow hacker. DoorGrow hackers love the opportunities, daily variety, unique challenges, and freedom that property management brings. Many in real estate think you're crazy for doing it. You think they're crazy for not because you realize that property management is the ultimate, high-trust gateway to real estate deals, relationships, and residual income. At DoorGrow, we are on a mission to transform property management businesses owners and their businesses. We want to transform the industry, eliminate the BS, build awareness, change perception, expand the market, and help the best property management entrepreneurs win. I'm your host, property management growth expert, Jason Hull, the founder and CEO of DoorGrow. Now, let's get into the show. I'm going to do something a little bit different. Usually, I interview people, first of all, because that makes me feel a bit more secure. It's just a comfort thing. It feels a little bit weird to just sit here and talk all by myself, but my team has been pushing me to do this for years. You need to create your own episodes just you talking, sharing some of your ideas. That's really what people want to hear, and so here it goes. This episode may be one of the most important pieces of content or information that I've put out into the marketplace. We're going to be talking today about what I call the four reasons. These are Jason Hull's four reasons for starting a company or for having a business. This is something that is just formulated in my mind over the last decade of running a company and coaching business owners, just realizing and seeing that there's something more that entrepreneurs need to be focused on than just making money. There's something more that's important because I've had so many. I've talked to thousands of property managers, I have hundreds of clients, I've spoken to a lot of business owners, I've been in a lot of different masterminds and programs. One of the things that I've realized is that there's something a bit deeper that a business owner needs in order to have a successful business than just making money. At some point, money is no longer really an issue, but they could still be miserable. One of the things that I've noticed is that instead of money being the primary goal, there are four things that are probably more important than money. These are the four reasons for having a business. What I've noticed is if you have these four things and you're in alignment with these four things, you then have a business that you love. If you're out of alignment with these four things, then you have a job that makes you somewhat miserable or maybe very miserable. You then are basically the biggest bottleneck in your business, you are the most critical employee in your business, you will be more and more frustrated, and you'll want to escape. A lot of entrepreneurs mistakenly think the goal is to exit, the goal is retirement. Here's the thing, if you have these four reasons, you don't really want to retire because then you give up something that's really important to you. The other side effect of having these four reasons is that your operational costs when it comes to staffing is usually cut into a fraction. Usually cut maybe down to a third of what most property management companies or most businesses spend on staffing costs, which means you'll be able to get about three times the output from team members because you'll be in alignment with these four reasons. That means that they can be in alignment with these four reasons. Let's get into the four reasons for starting a company. Reason number one, the primary reason, the most important reason to start a business has to be fulfillment. Fulfillment is the primary goal or reason for a business to exist. It should be a vehicle to give you fulfillment in life. You're going to be giving up the majority of your life on this thing. Probably the largest portion of your day goes to your business or towards your work. Probably the largest portion of your week goes towards your business or towards work. You should be getting something in return, besides just trading your life and giving your life away in exchange for dollars. You should be getting life, you should be enjoying your life, and you should be getting fulfillment. That's primary goal number one. Primary goal number two, the second reason for having a business needs to be freedom. This is why we become entrepreneurs. We want to achieve and get more freedom. You can make more and more money as your business grows. Most businesses do, but most business owners have less freedom and less fulfillment in their day-to-day. They become more and more a slave to their own business, and the business is then their master. As entrepreneurs, we want more freedom. That's usually why we want more money. We think, man, if I had more money, I would have more options in life and that should be true. If you have more money, it should give you more options in life, and you should then have more freedom. Most business owners usually within the first year of their business, a very short period of time, they have very little freedom and very little fulfillment. The thing is with fulfillment, reason number one, if you're doing everything in the business wearing every hat in the business, you can't really be in a state of fulfillment. You also can't really feel like you're free because you're doing things that you really don't enjoy doing. I find a lot of entrepreneurs and business owners mistakenly think that there are certain things they have to do because they're business owners. What's really odd is this is different for each person, but it's some sort of conditioning. Maybe it's things they learned growing up, learned their jobs, or they've just decided they can never hand off certain pieces. A lot of business owners hold on to things that they don't have to do. For example, if you hate accounting, but you feel like I have to do all the accounting in my business. Maybe you hate sales but you're like, I have to do all the sales in my business, or I hate talking to people and connecting with people, but you are talking and connecting with people constantly. Really, the reality is there's nothing in your business in the long run that you have to do. There's nothing. You can offload any pieces of the business that you don't enjoy. The problem is a lot of times, entrepreneurs will offload the things they do enjoy, which give them fulfillment and a sense of freedom. Then they hold on to the things that take that away, that are really minus signs in their day instead of plus signs energetically. The third reason for having a business is contribution. The goal of a business should be that it solves a real problem in the marketplace. That's a contribution. If a business doesn't solve a real problem in the marketplace, then it's basically bullshit. It's snake oil, it's stealing people's money. I find entrepreneurs—we really want to make a difference in the world. We want to contribute, we want to feel like we're adding value. One of the reasons I'm inspired to work with property management entrepreneurs is you have a real impact. Most property management businesses suck. I'm sure you're like, yeah, that's true. If you look at your market, you know it. You know that this is true. Most property management businesses suck. It's not because these business owners woke up in the morning and said, man, I want to have a shitty company today. I want to start a business and have it suck. We'll get back to why so many suck at least one part. Good property management business owners, their business solves three of the biggest challenges in real estate. What are three of the most complained about things in real estate probably? Probably number one, landlords. You just hear lots of people complaining about landlords. They get a bad rep. Number two, a lot of people complain about tenants. All these renters, they're the worst and you hear people complain about them. You also hear people complain about rental properties. Good property managers are the superheroes of the entire real estate investing industry and they make all three of those things better. Nobody else does that. DoorGrow hacker, property management entrepreneur, you deserve to get paid well if you're one of the good ones. That's a real contribution. That's why businesses exist to solve a real problem in the marketplace, and you deserve to be compensated well for that. That's reason number three. Entrepreneurs, we want to contribute and make a difference. We feel like we're doing something good in the world, and that feels like fulfillment to us to be contributing and benefiting other people. The business is a vehicle for fulfillment, it's a vehicle for freedom, and it's a vehicle for contribution for the entrepreneur. The fourth reason is so important that if you don't have it, you can't really have the first three, at least not fully. The fourth reason for having a business is support. Having a business, it's a vehicle to create contributions and change the world. There's probably no better vehicle that could exist. Charities aren't even as effective or as efficient. Entrepreneurs have figured out a model, which is a business, which allows them the resources, money, the staff in which they can create contributions and make a difference. In order to do this and have more freedom and have more fulfillment, you can't be wearing every hat as I talked about earlier. You need support. Having support in the business means that you have an awesome team. It means that you are able to offload all the things and the hats that you don't want to wear. You find people that enjoy doing those things, that will be better at it than you, that you can trust, that share your values. When you're supported, then you're going to feel like Iron Man in your super suit. You're a normal person, but you have this magical increased super capability because you have a team, which gives you more time, gives you more ability. You need support. Here's the cool thing. If you have these four reasons—you have fulfillment, you have freedom, you have a contribution, you have support—then that means that you can have team members that also have those four reasons. Looking at these four things, what's interesting to note is that most people on the planet do not care about these four things more than they care about a higher priority. A higher priority than these four things for most people is safety and certainty. This is important to recognize, especially as a property manager. Safety and certainty are the highest priority for most people on the planet. They want to feel safe and certain. This is why they don't go start businesses. This is why they're willing to give up and not have fulfillment, freedom, a sense of contribution, or even a lack of support in their day job. This is why the standard American employee often just complains about their boss, lives for the weekend, and wants to go out and drink. They're just trying to escape their life. If you are in alignment with these four reasons then you can build the right team around you. When I see those, a lot of entrepreneurs are not in alignment with these four things. As they expand and break past the first sand trap of maybe about 50, 60 doors, and then they get into the next sand trap of maybe 200–400 doors, where they have a team, usually they have the wrong team. Why? Because they are not in alignment with these four reasons. They're doing the wrong things. They're showing up as the wrong person that's less happy, has less fulfillment, less freedom, less contribution. They are not going to feel supported because they're doing the wrong things. They're going to build a team of people around them that supplement their miserableness, and so these people around them are also not going to have a sense of freedom, fulfillment, contribution, and support. The operational cost on those types of team members is usually going to be three times higher. What I mean is if you have a team member that has a sense of fulfillment in the business, they feel fulfilled in their day-to-day, they feel like they have autonomy and freedom, they feel like they're making a difference in benefiting people, they feel supported by you, and they feel like they get to support you as the entrepreneur, they are going to give you three times the output I find. A-player team members, really great team members, will give you three times the output of a typical employee, which means that's going to significantly decrease your operational costs. This is the most expensive thing in business is staffing. That resource is the most expensive. If you want to be a profitable company, you want to be one of the good property management businesses, and not be one of the sucky ones, a lot of times the reason they're sucky is because their operational costs are too high. They don't have a really good team because they aren't really showing up as a really great boss. They are miserable and their team is not very happy. Their customer service levels drop because they can't really support people as well because their operational costs are too expensive so they're not able to get as much done. One of the most common questions I get is, how many staff members should I have per the number of doors? Is there a ratio that's right? There are so many variables that come into this that it's an impossible thing to answer. You need a lot less staff per door if you are in alignment with these four reasons and your team members are in alignment with these four reasons. Hopefully, this concept of the four reasons is helpful. This is the foundation of my philosophy as a property management business coach. With my clients, this is my primary goal. I reiterate this on our coaching calls that we have each week. I reiterate this in my one-on-one with clients. My goal is to get you more and more in alignment with these four reasons. I have processes and ways of helping people do that, that maybe we'll get into on a future call. Basically, we want to see what are the plus signs in your day-to-day, what are the minus signs? How can we become really conscious of that? I usually use time studies to do that. I have a specific process for taking clients through to identify that, how to figure out how to feel safe to offload. In order to do that, you're going to have to create the right culture so that you have people that share the values that you can trust with people, trust with your clientele, and not just people that know how to do the job. Cultural fit is more important. We can get into that more, maybe in another conversation. Anyway, if you want to get in alignment with these four reasons, you feel like you're out of alignment with them right now, reach out to me and reach out to my team at doorgrow.com. Check us out, join our Facebook group, doorgrowclub.com. You can go to doorgrowclub.com. Apply and join our Facebook group if you are a property management entrepreneur. Let's see if we can get you more in alignment with those four reasons. Life's too short. You should be enjoying your day-to-day life. I want you to have a job and a business that you don't want to escape and retire from. Because if you did, you would be giving up one of your main vehicles for fulfillment, freedom, contribution, and support in life. You want to keep that. You then can choose how much you want to do in that business. I want you to always be able to hold on to the things that give you freedom, fulfillment, contribution, and support. Anyway, with that, I'm out. Until next time. To our mutual growth everybody. I'm Jason Hull, and I hope that you found this beneficial. If so, leave comments, give us a review, and some feedback.

Sometimes saving money doesn’t matter...Most of us for a period of time dutifully arose out of our comfortable beds each morning to go to work to earn money. While work should be meaningful and purposeful, we realize that if we weren’t getting paid, we’d have issues.We are engineered from a young age to understand that money is essential. In fact, I’m trying to teach my three year-old daughter this lesson now. We’ve raised chickens for the last four years. Since she was able to walk, she’s enjoyed helping me by carrying the chicken feed out to their coop.She enjoyed our morning ritual until a few months ago. One afternoon I let the chickens out of their coop to walk around the yard, and I took my eyes off Amelia for a couple of moments. When I did, our rooster came rushing at her. Roosters are notoriously aggressive. Of course, this frightened her, and she didn't want to feed the chickens anymore. We have so many eggs that we started selling them. Previously, I had told Amelia since she was helping with the chickens, she could keep the egg money for when she wanted to buy new things. On Monday I had a conversation with her that if she didn’t want to feed the chickens, then she wasn’t going to get to keep the egg money. The next morning she put her boots on and fed the chickens with me. Something about being able to buy more Play-Doh motivated her.We are conditioned as young children to understand that money is important, but sometimes money can’t buy you what you want…She enjoyed our morning ritual until a few months ago.

Money Doesn't have to be stressful!  If You Change Your Money Mindset, Money Can Flow Freely In and Out of Your Business. About Stacey Stacey Isetta helps women entrepreneurs breakthrough their stress around money and develop strategies and systems to build personal freedom and wealth inside their online business.  She helps women increase sales, and strategize and plan for growth so that they can increase income and have more time to spend with their families. Stacey believes that stories are told through numbers in your business. Her goal is to help people understand the numbers so that they can fully understand their business and what is happening. Let Money Flow Freely When you have a positive money mindset, you can allow money to flow freely through you. As you make money, you need to pay everything off so that you don't owe anyone. Once you gain peace and allow money to flow in and out of your life, you will let go of control and be able to be a catalyst to give money away to help others. Be grateful for the blessings and bless others as you let money flow in and out of your life. Gratitude can shift your money mindset. Find the value by being responsible and content with what you have. As discussed in Episode 102, be responsible with purchases so as not to collect things that will ultimately be thrown away. Spend responsibly and put good back into the world through the money you make and spend. The Budget The word budget can trigger a negative money mindset. Instead of calling your money management system a budget, call it a spending plan. This gives money permission to take care of the things that need to be taken care of.  Be conservative. If you don't have enough money, don't eat out, but do meal planning and be conscious of spending. Dave Ramsey has a fantastic money mentorship program through which you can work on money mindset. This principle applies to businesses too. Start your business slow and try not to use credit cards but invest in things that will give you a strong return on your money and effort. When you become more focused and put systems in place and become more efficient, your profitability in your business skyrockets.  As the income coming into your business grows while you've limited spending, that income portion can pay off debt. Your business should be funding the values and needs of your family so keep your business structure tight to keep the expenses low. Time to Scale The other thing to do is to scale your business as much as possible. Once you are making enough money to take a paycheck home to your family, hire help. Automate Take your emotions and physical triggers away from processing your money. If you work 9 to 5, be sure to take your retirement investment out before you receive your paycheck. Automate bill pay, college savings, etc. so that your money is coming out and paying for those things right upfront so that you can see what fun money you have left. Have a vision in mind but find what works for you. Emergency Fund Have an emergency fund. If you are a two-income family, you should have three months of your combined salaries saved. Single-income families should have 6 months of salary set aside as an emergency fund. Be conservative with spending until you have this amount saved. Imposter Syndrome Many entrepreneurs struggle with money mindset and charging for their services and under charge because of imposter syndrome. Often times entrepreneurs overlook that they have tremendous value to offer their clients. There are people who are willing to pay you for your expertise. Your experiences have given you the right to charge for your services. It's important to have a positive mindset so you can value your own time and experience and charge for it. When should you increase what you charge? Increase your prices every 6 to 12 months 3 to 5%.  People will be willing to pay for the service you offer. Most importantly, value your time. Value yourself and charge accordingly. Banking System Having systems in place to manage your money can help you have a positive money mindset. One core system that Stacey has implemented is a banking system. Start with a checking account. This account will be where cash flows in and out for payments and for expenses. The second account is a tax savings account. For every dollar that comes in, put 30% in this account. It is also important to have a savings account. Save a percent of everything that comes into your business. This becomes your emergency fund and your resource for education and other investments for your business. The fourth account is a bonus account. This is an additional savings account from which you can draw a bonus that you can bring into your family for fun. You can also do this inside of your family. Branding Question How Do I Grow an Audience and Make Them Be the Star of The Show? It is so important tell your story so that people can get to know, love and trust you. Your story is what is going to build the foundation for people to understand that you are an expert at what you do. All the years of experience are what have given you the knowledge to allow you to help your clients. Use your story to create case studies to share how your audience can see the same results. Your why is important for connecting with your audience. When your audience understands what you do, why you do it, and why they need you, they will be more likely to engage, connect and hire you. Combine your story with their story to help them see how you are going to make them the hero of their own journey. Use content pillars to create content: Your story, your why. Money mindset. Systems and tools. Strategy. Articles you've read. Create 3 to 6 pillars/buckets to intertwine your knowledge with the needs of your clients. Learn more about your host, Robyn Graham, click HERE.

Starting a business requires a lot of patience and determination. You have to be willing to make some sacrifices in your life, change your mindset, and keep pushing through when the going gets tough. But before you hit the ground running, there are a few key things you should know before you start your business. Why? What? Who? Why - The first and most crucial part of your business is knowing your "Why." Why are you doing what you're doing? What is the driving factor that pushes you to keep this business running? Your "why" gets you out of bed every morning, even when you're at your lowest. What - What are your goals? What is it that you're trying to accomplish? Set small milestones that will help you get where you want to go. Start by creating small goals that are within reach. Not only will this help you stay on track towards the bigger picture, but you will build your confidence as you go along. Who - Lastly, who is it that you're doing all of this for? Who is your ideal client? The one that you dream of working with or would benefit from your services or products. The more you know about them, the better you'll provide them with exactly what they need. Prepare to Sacrifice Within the first year of your business, prepare yourself to make sacrifices. Running a business takes a lot of time. The reality is that you'll work more hours for yourself than you ever did at your corporate, full-time job. That's entrepreneur life for you, but the reward is worth it when you see your hard work paying off. The Money Doesn't Come Right Away Starting a business doesn't mean instant profit. It could take a year or longer to see a consistent and profitable income. This is usually because, within the first year, your expenses go towards building a solid foundation for your business. So, before you start a business - don't quit your day job just yet. Set aside some money so that you can compensate for the days that your new business doesn't bring any income. Conclusion The thought of quitting will often cross your mind, but when it does - take a step back and reevaluate where you are in your business and if it's in the direction you want to be going. Know that you will have to pivot along the way and adjust to the many challenges that come your way, but these are the things that will make you stronger. Take those lessons, learn from them, and grow. If you're seeking extra help and guidance along the way, check out my free resources here or you can join our membership - The Creative Boss Society.

Mo Gawdat is the Chief Business Officer for Google [X], a serial entrepreneur and author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” Mo has an impressive combined career of 27 years, starting at IBM Egypt as a Systems Engineer before moving to a sales role in the government sector. Venturing into the UAE, Mo joined NCR Abu Dhabi to cover the non-finance sector. He then became acquainted with the consumer goods industry as Regional Manager of BAT. At Microsoft, he assumed various roles over a span of seven and a half years, in his last role at Microsoft he headed the Communications Sector across Emerging Markets worldwide. Favorite Success Quote “The gravity of the battle means nothing to those at peace” Key Points 1. The Equation for Happiness is Simple  Happiness is not complicated. While you might not come to this conclusion by scrolling through your social media feed, watching the latest advertisements, or even reading some of the more popular personal growth and self-help books, when you truly sit down and think objectively, you will realize that happiness is simple. Despite marketer’s best attempts to prove otherwise, happiness isn’t contingent upon some wild, complex, equation. In fact, the equation for happiness is almost too simple. Happiness is equal to or greater than the events of your life minus the expectations you have for those events. That’s it. The equation isn’t “Happiness = Fancy Clothes + A 6-Figure Salary + An Italian Sports Car and a French Bikini Model” It’s simply events – expectations.  But what does this really mean? At the most basic level, it means that your happiness in any given situation, and thus your happiness in life, is entirely dependent on the difference between what you expect from a situation and how that situation actually turns out. So, for example, let’s say that the event in question is coming home to your wife after a long day of work. Let’s look at how your expectations of the event will determine your happiness. On one hand, your expectation might be that when you come home after a long day of work, your wife should be preparing dinner, opening you a cold beer, and wearing a sexy outfit that tells you she’s “in the mood”. On the other, your expectation might simply be that your wife should be relaxing and unwinding after her long day of work and that the two of you should prepare dinner and unwind together. While neither of these expectations are right or wrong, they can have a tremendous effect on your happiness and well being. If you come home with the first set of expectations and your wife has already prepared dinner but left it in the oven and is now relaxing on the couch… You are going to be unhappy and angry because your expectations were not met. However, if you come home to the exact same situation with the second set of expectations, you will not only be happy, but you will feel an abundance of love for your wife because she went above and beyond and exceeded your expectations. So now, you might be wondering, “If the secret to happiness is to have lower expectations, shouldn’t I just stop expecting anything so that I will never be disappointed?” Well, yes and no. While eliminating your expectations would certainly make you happier in the short run, it proves detrimental to your well being and success in the long term. If you have no expectations of yourself or others, then you will mistreat yourself and allow other people to walk all over you. Therefore, the key to happiness is to first become conscious of your expectations and then consciously and intentionally craft a new set of expectations that serve you and your purpose in life. 2. We Are All Born Happy  An often forgotten truth of life is that we were all born happy. All of us. We are born carefree and loving, without any hate, anger, or animosity in our hearts. It is our society that teaches us to be unhappy, to compare ourselves to others, to hate our fellow man, and to be unfulfilled. And once you become aware of this reality, it is your job to undo the programming that society has instilled into your brain. Luckily, the process for “deprogramming” all of the crap in your brain is simple, however, this doesn’t mean it’s easy. The best way to start is to pick up some sort of daily mindfulness practice whether it’s meditation, prayer, long walks in nature, or even just some sort of conscious movements like yoga or Tai Chi. These practices allow you to detach yourself from the human experience and the brain’s programming and become more aware of how you or your “superconscious” are meant to function. Let’s use the analogy of a new computer so that you can understand what I mean. Whenever you get a new computer, everything runs smoothly. It functions exactly as it was designed, quickly opening applications, seamlessly running commands, and doing its job without a problem. But over time, things start to slow down and problems start to arise. You begin downloading new programs and applications, visiting questionable websites, and demanding more of your computer than the software and hardware were designed to handle. And as you execute increasingly demanding operations, your computer starts to slow and malfunction and what once took 2 seconds now takes 2 minutes. When this happens (and it almost always happen) the only way to restore its original performance is to return it to default settings and execute a complete factory reset. In much the same way as a computer’s default setting is speed and efficiency, our brain’s default setting is happiness and contentment. But when we start installing (willingly or unwillingly) societal, religious, and familial expectations into our “operating system”, we start to get bogged down, and experience unhappiness. And when this happens, the only way to return to our original state is a “Factory reset” which typically takes the form of meditation, affirmations, journaling, and other consciousness practices. These practices are kind of like our brain’s “CTRL + ALT + DELETE” function and the more you can integrate them into your daily life, the smoother and faster you you will operate. 3. Your Emotional State is Determined by Your Thoughts, Not Events One of the simplest, but most impactful, formulas that you can understand to achieve a happy life is this: E + R = O Or Event + Response = Outcome In other words, your emotional outcome (happy, sad, angry, loving) is not determined by the events in your life, but rather by your response to the events in your life. For example, let’s say that you are going out to meet up with a friend. You agreed to meet at the local coffee shop around 8 a.m., but when you show up he is nowhere to be found. You order your drink, a few minutes go by, and your friend is still absent. At this point, you can respond in one of two ways. First, you can assume that your friend does not respect you, get angry, and allow his tardiness to dampen your mood. Or, you can simply assume that your friend had some sort of extenuating circumstance that stopped him from showing up on time and reframe his lateness by saying, “Great! This gives me a few minutes to read that new book I bought“, resulting in a happier and more fulfilling morning. In these two examples, the event was exactly the same, but by changing the response to the event, you achieved two wildly different outcomes. When you understand the far reaching applications of this formula, your life will begin to change in ways that you could never expect. Mastering your emotional response to any circumstance gives you power over the events in your life instead of allowing those events to have power over you. And when your internal world remains unaffected by the chaos of the outside world, you will have true power in your life, business, and relationships. 4. Learn to Differentiate Between Incessant and Effective Thoughts As it pertains to our happiness, there are only two kinds of thoughts. Effective thoughts and incessant thoughts. Effective thoughts are the thoughts that move the needle forward in your life, thoughts that solve problems, achieve goals, and give you a deeper understanding of your place in the cosmos. Incessant thoughts are the negative thoughts that do nothing to improve the quality of your life or happiness even when they are true. In the interview, Mo shared a powerful example detailing the difference between these two thoughts during a tragic situation. At the age of 21 years old, Mo’s son Ali died on the operating table during a routine surgery that should have been quick and simple. Shocked and in pain, Mo was overwhelmed with a wave of thoughts and feelings that can only be comprehended by people who have experienced a similar tragedy in his life. Over the coming weeks and months, Mo was faced with a single, pervasive and incessant thought, “I will never get to hug my son Ali again.” However, as he continued grieving for his son, he realized something. This thought would not bring Ali back, it would not change reality, and it would not benefit humanity. So he made a very conscious decision to change his thinking. Instead of thinking “I will never hug my son again”, he reframed the tragedy and said, “My son is dead, now it is my duty to remember his legacy by living my life as he would have wanted and impacting the world in honor of his memory.” And while this new thought didn’t take away the pain of losing his child, it allowed him to cope with the loss and make sense of the heart break. Each of us is faced with the same thoughts day in and day out. Even if we haven’t lost a loved one, we are all faced with our own “Incessant thought demons” that seek to cripple us and hold us back from living a happy life. Whether we are constantly thinking about a mistake that we regret, a relationship that we ruined, or an opportunity that we lost, we all have incessant loops of unhelpful thoughts playing in the back of our mind. And the biggest problem with these thoughts is that 99% of the time… They are true! But just because something is true, does not mean that it is advantageous. For example, if you lost the woman of your dreams because you were too focused on your work and not focused on the relationship, you might be faced with the incessant thought “I will never have her in my life again”. Chances are, this thought is true. But does it serve you in any way!? No! Instead, you can choose to reframe this thought by saying “I will never have this woman in my life again, so now it is my duty to learn from my mistakes and move forward so that I can find love once more… Only this time, I will make it work.” The moment that you can learn to eradicate incessant thoughts and replace them with intentional and effective thoughts is the moment that your life will be irrevocably changed for the better. 5. Money Doesn’t Make You Happier… Unless Countless studies have been conducted on the correlation between money and happiness, and what they found was rather interesting. Money only affects your happiness up to a certain point. If you are living below the poverty line, increasing your income to a stable and livable level will drastically improve your happiness. However, going from $100,000 a year to $100,000 a month will only have a marginal impact on your happiness and mental well being. However, once you have passed roughly $7,000 a month, increasing your income will only result in a nominal increase in your happiness. So, for example, if you go from $100,000 a year to $250,000 a year, your happiness will not increase by any appreciable amount. If this is true, then why is it that so many rich people seem to live better and happier lives? Because they give so much of their money away! Studies have found that one of the only ways money can make you happier after you have passed the $70,000/year threshold is if you are giving more of your money to charitable causes, family, friends, and organizations that you support. For example, if you earn an extra $20,000 bonus this year and then use it to put a down payment on a new sports car, your happiness will only increase marginally and temporarily. However, if you took that same $20,000 and paid for a vacation with some of your closest friends, your happiness would increase dramatically and the effects would last much longer. So yes, money is important for your happiness. If you cannot afford to put food on the table, increasing your income is one of the quickest ways to increase your happiness. But after your basic living expenses are covered, giving your wealth away and spending it on the people you care about is the only way to leverage your money to increase your happiness. 6. Life is a Video Game and Challenges Make the Game Fun  Life is not fair, it is not perfect, and it is not easy. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… That’s what makes life fun! I want you to imagine that the new Call of Duty just came out, and after months of anxiously anticipating the game’s release, you take it home and start playing. You go through the tutorial, launch the first level, and then get ready to kill some virtual bad guys. But there’s a problem… There are no bad guys to kill and no challenges to overcome. Every level is simply a linear progression where you run from the beginning to the end as quickly as you can, avoiding all signs of danger or adversity. Does that sound like a fun game? Probably not. And guess what? Life is nothing more than a very intense and large scale video game. So why in the world would you want it to be easy? Why would you want a challenge and problem free life? Just think about it for a moment. Imagine that I came to your house tomorrow and gave you an Olympic Gold Medal. How would you feel? If you are anything like me, you would probably think that the medal was pretty cool, but after a few minutes of looking at it, you would quickly feel disenchanted and bored because you did nothing to earn the medal. You’d probably sell it or leave it in your sock drawer because it has no significance in your life. But imagine that you have been training for the Olympics since you were 12 years old. You worked every single day for the past ten years of your life, and when you finally had the opportunity, you competed and won. How would that medal make you feel? I would chance a guess that the medal would have more meaning and significance to you than darn near anything else that you owned. Why? Because you worked for it, you suffered for it, and you endured more pain than most people are willing to endure in order to call that medal your own. In much the same way, we gain meaning in our lives by overcoming challenges, by enduring pain, and by beating adversity. Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s meant to be a challenge. A challenge that you enjoy and have fun with, yes. But a challenge nonetheless. 7. You Don’t Find Your Purpose… It Finds You So many people in the modern world are concerned with finding their purpose. But they fail to realize that you don’t find your purpose, your purpose finds you. People don’t just wake up one day and say “Hmm, I know exactly what I am meant to do and how I am going to do it”. Instead, they find the intersection of their passions and talents and they work for years honing their skills, setting and conquering goals, and becoming better and better. Then, when they have mastered their craft, an opportunity presents itself, often in the most unlikely manner, and all of the hard work they put in begins to make sense. If you want to live a life of purpose, then you must first start by building your skills and growing yourself until you are ready to handle your purpose. Typically, this means working on rather mundane skills and projects so that you can grow your capacity as a human being. Think about the classic Karate kid movie where Mr. Miyagi had his student wax the car and paint the fence. These tasks seemed dull, monotonous, and frustrating. But, when the time came, and the first punch was thrown, these dull tasks that the Karate Kid had practiced suddenly made sense and he realized that he had been practicing for the purpose of learning a new skill. Steve Jobs summarized this truth when he said You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

This week, I’m sharing with you 5 things I’m going to teach my kids about money. Today’s money lesson for my kids is a twist on one of the most annoying lessons that almost all of us hear as kids. If you’ve ever asked your mom or dad to buy you something they couldn’t afford, you’ve mostly heard them bark back - “don’t you know that money doesn’t grow on trees!”  What I’m planning to teach my kids is a slightly less annoying lesson with the same underlying principle: Money used in one way prevents it from being used for something else.  Money is a limited resource, so when we use it in one way it prevents it for being used for something else. If I spend $5 every day on a latte and $500 eating out every month, I may not be able to afford to take a vacation this year. The daily latte and frequent restaurant visits isn’t inherently wrong, but I better make those decisions to spend my money in that way, because I get more satisfaction from spending my money in that way vs. sitting on a beach in Hawaii for a week.  With the guiding principle in understanding that money is a limited resource, and when you use it in one way, it prevents it for using something else, something else that could potentially be more important.  Spending decisions (even the seemingly inconsequential daily spending decisions on a little something here and there) should be subject to the scrutiny of this understanding of what am I missing out on or is there a higher or better use for my money that what I’m choosing to spend it on.  Learning this principle will also reinforce one of the most important life lessons that any child can learn - delayed gratification. If my kids learn to discern whether or not a current use is more valuable than a future use, they’ll be able to apply the value of delayed gratification.  Money is a powerful tool for teaching delayed gratification, and understanding money as a limited resource that doesn’t grow on trees and something that must be used wisely, will establish a foundation for your children for making smart, well thought out decisions in everything from money to relationships to their health. That’s it for today. Thanks for listening.

Everywhere we turn, we see this question: how can we be clean? If we don’t have Jesus’ life and death in our place, we try to figure out some way on our own… yet in our sins we continue to defy God and harm our neighbors and even ourselves, and we know something’s still wrong. In this episode we discuss some of the popular ways to mitigate the feelings that stem from the legal reality of our guilt--and why they all fail.

Simple Steps to Engineer Your Path to Joy and Happiness With Mo Gawdat

Mo Gawdat is the Chief Business Officer for Google [X], a serial entrepreneur and author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” Mo has an impressive combined career of 27 years, starting at IBM Egypt as a Systems Engineer before moving to a sales role in the government sector. Venturing into the UAE, Mo joined NCR Abu Dhabi to cover the non-finance sector. He then became acquainted with the consumer goods industry as Regional Manager of BAT. At Microsoft, he assumed various roles over a span of seven and a half years, in his last role at Microsoft he headed the Communications Sector across Emerging Markets worldwide. Favorite Success Quote “The gravity of the battle means nothing to those at peace” Key Points 1. The Equation for Happiness is Simple  Happiness is not complicated. While you might not come to this conclusion by scrolling through your social media feed, watching the latest advertisements, or even reading some of the more popular personal growth and self-help books, when you truly sit down and think objectively, you will realize that happiness is simple. Despite marketer’s best attempts to prove otherwise, happiness isn’t contingent upon some wild, complex, equation. In fact, the equation for happiness is almost too simple. Happiness is equal to or greater than the events of your life minus the expectations you have for those events. That’s it. The equation isn’t “Happiness = Fancy Clothes + A 6-Figure Salary + An Italian Sports Car and a French Bikini Model” It’s simply events – expectations.  But what does this really mean? At the most basic level, it means that your happiness in any given situation, and thus your happiness in life, is entirely dependent on the difference between what you expect from a situation and how that situation actually turns out. So, for example, let’s say that the event in question is coming home to your wife after a long day of work. Let’s look at how your expectations of the event will determine your happiness. On one hand, your expectation might be that when you come home after a long day of work, your wife should be preparing dinner, opening you a cold beer, and wearing a sexy outfit that tells you she’s “in the mood”. On the other, your expectation might simply be that your wife should be relaxing and unwinding after her long day of work and that the two of you should prepare dinner and unwind together. While neither of these expectations are right or wrong, they can have a tremendous effect on your happiness and well being. If you come home with the first set of expectations and your wife has already prepared dinner but left it in the oven and is now relaxing on the couch… You are going to be unhappy and angry because your expectations were not met. However, if you come home to the exact same situation with the second set of expectations, you will not only be happy, but you will feel an abundance of love for your wife because she went above and beyond and exceeded your expectations. So now, you might be wondering, “If the secret to happiness is to have lower expectations, shouldn’t I just stop expecting anything so that I will never be disappointed?” Well, yes and no. While eliminating your expectations would certainly make you happier in the short run, it proves detrimental to your well being and success in the long term. If you have no expectations of yourself or others, then you will mistreat yourself and allow other people to walk all over you. Therefore, the key to happiness is to first become conscious of your expectations and then consciously and intentionally craft a new set of expectations that serve you and your purpose in life. 2. We Are All Born Happy  An often forgotten truth of life is that we were all born happy. All of us. We are born carefree and loving, without any hate, anger, or animosity in our hearts. It is our society that teaches us to be unhappy, to compare ourselves to others, to hate our fellow man, and to be unfulfilled. And once you become aware of this reality, it is your job to undo the programming that society has instilled into your brain. Luckily, the process for “deprogramming” all of the crap in your brain is simple, however, this doesn’t mean it’s easy. The best way to start is to pick up some sort of daily mindfulness practice whether it’s meditation, prayer, long walks in nature, or even just some sort of conscious movements like yoga or Tai Chi. These practices allow you to detach yourself from the human experience and the brain’s programming and become more aware of how you or your “superconscious” are meant to function. Let’s use the analogy of a new computer so that you can understand what I mean. Whenever you get a new computer, everything runs smoothly. It functions exactly as it was designed, quickly opening applications, seamlessly running commands, and doing its job without a problem. But over time, things start to slow down and problems start to arise. You begin downloading new programs and applications, visiting questionable websites, and demanding more of your computer than the software and hardware were designed to handle. And as you execute increasingly demanding operations, your computer starts to slow and malfunction and what once took 2 seconds now takes 2 minutes. When this happens (and it almost always happen) the only way to restore its original performance is to return it to default settings and execute a complete factory reset. In much the same way as a computer’s default setting is speed and efficiency, our brain’s default setting is happiness and contentment. But when we start installing (willingly or unwillingly) societal, religious, and familial expectations into our “operating system”, we start to get bogged down, and experience unhappiness. And when this happens, the only way to return to our original state is a “Factory reset” which typically takes the form of meditation, affirmations, journaling, and other consciousness practices. These practices are kind of like our brain’s “CTRL + ALT + DELETE” function and the more you can integrate them into your daily life, the smoother and faster you you will operate. 3. Your Emotional State is Determined by Your Thoughts, Not Events One of the simplest, but most impactful, formulas that you can understand to achieve a happy life is this: E + R = O Or Event + Response = Outcome In other words, your emotional outcome (happy, sad, angry, loving) is not determined by the events in your life, but rather by your response to the events in your life. For example, let’s say that you are going out to meet up with a friend. You agreed to meet at the local coffee shop around 8 a.m., but when you show up he is nowhere to be found. You order your drink, a few minutes go by, and your friend is still absent. At this point, you can respond in one of two ways. First, you can assume that your friend does not respect you, get angry, and allow his tardiness to dampen your mood. Or, you can simply assume that your friend had some sort of extenuating circumstance that stopped him from showing up on time and reframe his lateness by saying, “Great! This gives me a few minutes to read that new book I bought“, resulting in a happier and more fulfilling morning. In these two examples, the event was exactly the same, but by changing the response to the event, you achieved two wildly different outcomes. When you understand the far reaching applications of this formula, your life will begin to change in ways that you could never expect. Mastering your emotional response to any circumstance gives you power over the events in your life instead of allowing those events to have power over you. And when your internal world remains unaffected by the chaos of the outside world, you will have true power in your life, business, and relationships. 4. Learn to Differentiate Between Incessant and Effective Thoughts As it pertains to our happiness, there are only two kinds of thoughts. Effective thoughts and incessant thoughts. Effective thoughts are the thoughts that move the needle forward in your life, thoughts that solve problems, achieve goals, and give you a deeper understanding of your place in the cosmos. Incessant thoughts are the negative thoughts that do nothing to improve the quality of your life or happiness even when they are true. In the interview, Mo shared a powerful example detailing the difference between these two thoughts during a tragic situation. At the age of 21 years old, Mo’s son Ali died on the operating table during a routine surgery that should have been quick and simple. Shocked and in pain, Mo was overwhelmed with a wave of thoughts and feelings that can only be comprehended by people who have experienced a similar tragedy in his life. Over the coming weeks and months, Mo was faced with a single, pervasive and incessant thought, “I will never get to hug my son Ali again.” However, as he continued grieving for his son, he realized something. This thought would not bring Ali back, it would not change reality, and it would not benefit humanity. So he made a very conscious decision to change his thinking. Instead of thinking “I will never hug my son again”, he reframed the tragedy and said, “My son is dead, now it is my duty to remember his legacy by living my life as he would have wanted and impacting the world in honor of his memory.” And while this new thought didn’t take away the pain of losing his child, it allowed him to cope with the loss and make sense of the heart break. Each of us is faced with the same thoughts day in and day out. Even if we haven’t lost a loved one, we are all faced with our own “Incessant thought demons” that seek to cripple us and hold us back from living a happy life. Whether we are constantly thinking about a mistake that we regret, a relationship that we ruined, or an opportunity that we lost, we all have incessant loops of unhelpful thoughts playing in the back of our mind. And the biggest problem with these thoughts is that 99% of the time… They are true! But just because something is true, does not mean that it is advantageous. For example, if you lost the woman of your dreams because you were too focused on your work and not focused on the relationship, you might be faced with the incessant thought “I will never have her in my life again”. Chances are, this thought is true. But does it serve you in any way!? No! Instead, you can choose to reframe this thought by saying “I will never have this woman in my life again, so now it is my duty to learn from my mistakes and move forward so that I can find love once more… Only this time, I will make it work.” The moment that you can learn to eradicate incessant thoughts and replace them with intentional and effective thoughts is the moment that your life will be irrevocably changed for the better. 5. Money Doesn’t Make You Happier… Unless Countless studies have been conducted on the correlation between money and happiness, and what they found was rather interesting. Money only affects your happiness up to a certain point. If you are living below the poverty line, increasing your income to a stable and livable level will drastically improve your happiness. However, going from $100,000 a year to $100,000 a month will only have a marginal impact on your happiness and mental well being.

So, for example, if you go from $100,000 a year to $250,000 a year, your happiness will not increase by any appreciable amount. If this is true, then why is it that so many rich people seem to live better and happier lives? Because they give so much of their money away! Studies have found that one of the only ways money can make you happier after you have passed the $70,000/year threshold is if you are giving more of your money to charitable causes, family, friends, and organizations that you support. For example, if you earn an extra $20,000 bonus this year and then use it to put a down payment on a new sports car, your happiness will only increase marginally and temporarily. However, if you took that same $20,000 and paid for a vacation with some of your closest friends, your happiness would increase dramatically and the effects would last much longer. So yes, money is important for your happiness. If you cannot afford to put food on the table, increasing your income is one of the quickest ways to increase your happiness. But after your basic living expenses are covered, giving your wealth away and spending it on the people you care about is the only way to leverage your money to increase your happiness. 6. Life is a Video Game and Challenges Make the Game Fun  Life is not fair, it is not perfect, and it is not easy. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… That’s what makes life fun! I want you to imagine that the new Call of Duty just came out, and after months of anxiously anticipating the game’s release, you take it home and start playing.

Every level is simply a linear progression where you run from the beginning to the end as quickly as you can, avoiding all signs of danger or adversity. Does that sound like a fun game? Probably not. And guess what? Life is nothing more than a very intense and large scale video game. So why in the world would you want it to be easy? Why would you want a challenge and problem free life?

If you are anything like me, you would probably think that the medal was pretty cool, but after a few minutes of looking at it, you would quickly feel disenchanted and bored because you did nothing to earn the medal. You’d probably sell it or leave it in your sock drawer because it has no significance in your life. But imagine that you have been training for the Olympics since you were 12 years old. You worked every single day for the past ten years of your life, and when you finally had the opportunity, you competed and won. How would that medal make you feel? I would chance a guess that the medal would have more meaning and significance to you than darn near anything else that you owned. Why? Because you worked for it, you suffered for it, and you endured more pain than most people are willing to endure in order to call that medal your own. In much the same way, we gain meaning in our lives by overcoming challenges, by enduring pain, and by beating adversity. Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s meant to be a challenge. A challenge that you enjoy and have fun with, yes. But a challenge nonetheless. 7. You Don’t Find Your Purpose… It Finds You So many people in the modern world are concerned with finding their purpose. But they fail to realize that you don’t find your purpose, your purpose finds you. People don’t just wake up one day and say “Hmm, I know exactly what I am meant to do and how I am going to do it”. Instead, they find the intersection of their passions and talents and they work for years honing their skills, setting and conquering goals, and becoming better and better. Then, when they have mastered their craft, an opportunity presents itself, often in the most unlikely manner, and all of the hard work they put in begins to make sense. If you want to live a life of purpose, then you must first start by building your skills and growing yourself until you are ready to handle your purpose. Typically, this means working on rather mundane skills and projects so that you can grow your capacity as a human being. Think about the classic Karate kid movie where Mr. Miyagi had his student wax the car and paint the fence. These tasks seemed dull, monotonous, and frustrating. But, when the time came, and the first punch was thrown, these dull tasks that the Karate Kid had practiced suddenly made sense and he realized that he had been practicing for the purpose of learning a new skill. Steve Jobs summarized this truth when he said "You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.

If you’re like me you’ve heard it a million times growing up…“You have to work hard” to have a great life, get ahead, have financial security, etc, etc. The truth is this, great abundance does not come from hard work, it comes from your money consciousness. Many of the motivational speakers and internet personalities are yelling all day long about “hustle, and hard work and grind” and none of them have a clue that that approach generally repels the very wealth that you want.   VISIT THE SHOW NOTES HERE FOR MORE: https://www.jimfortin.com/59   LIKED THE EPISODE?

Simple Steps to Engineer Your Path to Joy and Happiness With Mo Gawdat

Mo Gawdat is the Chief Business Officer for Google [X], a serial entrepreneur and author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” Mo has an impressive combined career of 27 years, starting at IBM Egypt as a Systems Engineer before moving to a sales role in the government sector. Venturing into the UAE, Mo joined NCR Abu Dhabi to cover the non-finance sector. He then became acquainted with the consumer goods industry as Regional Manager of BAT. At Microsoft, he assumed various roles over a span of seven and a half years, in his last role at Microsoft he headed the Communications Sector across Emerging Markets worldwide. Favorite Success Quote “The gravity of the battle means nothing to those at peace” Key Points 1. The Equation for Happiness is Simple  Happiness is not complicated. While you might not come to this conclusion by scrolling through your social media feed, watching the latest advertisements, or even reading some of the more popular personal growth and self-help books, when you truly sit down and think objectively, you will realize that happiness is simple. Despite marketer’s best attempts to prove otherwise, happiness isn’t contingent upon some wild, complex, equation. In fact, the equation for happiness is almost too simple. Happiness is equal to or greater than the events of your life minus the expectations you have for those events. That’s it. The equation isn’t “Happiness = Fancy Clothes + A 6-Figure Salary + An Italian Sports Car and a French Bikini Model” It’s simply events – expectations.  But what does this really mean? At the most basic level, it means that your happiness in any given situation, and thus your happiness in life, is entirely dependent on the difference between what you expect from a situation and how that situation actually turns out. So, for example, let’s say that the event in question is coming home to your wife after a long day of work. Let’s look at how your expectations of the event will determine your happiness. On one hand, your expectation might be that when you come home after a long day of work, your wife should be preparing dinner, opening you a cold beer, and wearing a sexy outfit that tells you she’s “in the mood”. On the other, your expectation might simply be that your wife should be relaxing and unwinding after her long day of work and that the two of you should prepare dinner and unwind together. While neither of these expectations are right or wrong, they can have a tremendous effect on your happiness and well being. If you come home with the first set of expectations and your wife has already prepared dinner but left it in the oven and is now relaxing on the couch… You are going to be unhappy and angry because your expectations were not met. However, if you come home to the exact same situation with the second set of expectations, you will not only be happy, but you will feel an abundance of love for your wife because she went above and beyond and exceeded your expectations. So now, you might be wondering, “If the secret to happiness is to have lower expectations, shouldn’t I just stop expecting anything so that I will never be disappointed?” Well, yes and no. While eliminating your expectations would certainly make you happier in the short run, it proves detrimental to your well being and success in the long term. If you have no expectations of yourself or others, then you will mistreat yourself and allow other people to walk all over you. Therefore, the key to happiness is to first become conscious of your expectations and then consciously and intentionally craft a new set of expectations that serve you and your purpose in life. 2. We Are All Born Happy  An often forgotten truth of life is that we were all born happy. All of us. We are born carefree and loving, without any hate, anger, or animosity in our hearts. It is our society that teaches us to be unhappy, to compare ourselves to others, to hate our fellow man, and to be unfulfilled. And once you become aware of this reality, it is your job to undo the programming that society has instilled into your brain. Luckily, the process for “deprogramming” all of the crap in your brain is simple, however, this doesn’t mean it’s easy. The best way to start is to pick up some sort of daily mindfulness practice whether it’s meditation, prayer, long walks in nature, or even just some sort of conscious movements like yoga or Tai Chi. These practices allow you to detach yourself from the human experience and the brain’s programming and become more aware of how you or your “superconscious” are meant to function. Let’s use the analogy of a new computer so that you can understand what I mean. Whenever you get a new computer, everything runs smoothly. It functions exactly as it was designed, quickly opening applications, seamlessly running commands, and doing its job without a problem. But over time, things start to slow down and problems start to arise. You begin downloading new programs and applications, visiting questionable websites, and demanding more of your computer than the software and hardware were designed to handle. And as you execute increasingly demanding operations, your computer starts to slow and malfunction and what once took 2 seconds now takes 2 minutes. When this happens (and it almost always happen) the only way to restore its original performance is to return it to default settings and execute a complete factory reset. In much the same way as a computer’s default setting is speed and efficiency, our brain’s default setting is happiness and contentment. But when we start installing (willingly or unwillingly) societal, religious, and familial expectations into our “operating system”, we start to get bogged down, and experience unhappiness. And when this happens, the only way to return to our original state is a “Factory reset” which typically takes the form of meditation, affirmations, journaling, and other consciousness practices. These practices are kind of like our brain’s “CTRL + ALT + DELETE” function and the more you can integrate them into your daily life, the smoother and faster you you will operate. 3. Your Emotional State is Determined by Your Thoughts, Not Events One of the simplest, but most impactful, formulas that you can understand to achieve a happy life is this: E + R = O Or Event + Response = Outcome In other words, your emotional outcome (happy, sad, angry, loving) is not determined by the events in your life, but rather by your response to the events in your life. For example, let’s say that you are going out to meet up with a friend. You agreed to meet at the local coffee shop around 8 a.m., but when you show up he is nowhere to be found. You order your drink, a few minutes go by, and your friend is still absent. At this point, you can respond in one of two ways. First, you can assume that your friend does not respect you, get angry, and allow his tardiness to dampen your mood. Or, you can simply assume that your friend had some sort of extenuating circumstance that stopped him from showing up on time and reframe his lateness by saying, “Great! This gives me a few minutes to read that new book I bought“, resulting in a happier and more fulfilling morning. In these two examples, the event was exactly the same, but by changing the response to the event, you achieved two wildly different outcomes. When you understand the far reaching applications of this formula, your life will begin to change in ways that you could never expect. Mastering your emotional response to any circumstance gives you power over the events in your life instead of allowing those events to have power over you. And when your internal world remains unaffected by the chaos of the outside world, you will have true power in your life, business, and relationships. 4. Learn to Differentiate Between Incessant and Effective Thoughts As it pertains to our happiness, there are only two kinds of thoughts. Effective thoughts and incessant thoughts. Effective thoughts are the thoughts that move the needle forward in your life, thoughts that solve problems, achieve goals, and give you a deeper understanding of your place in the cosmos. Incessant thoughts are the negative thoughts that do nothing to improve the quality of your life or happiness even when they are true. In the interview, Mo shared a powerful example detailing the difference between these two thoughts during a tragic situation. At the age of 21 years old, Mo’s son Ali died on the operating table during a routine surgery that should have been quick and simple. Shocked and in pain, Mo was overwhelmed with a wave of thoughts and feelings that can only be comprehended by people who have experienced a similar tragedy in his life. Over the coming weeks and months, Mo was faced with a single, pervasive and incessant thought, “I will never get to hug my son Ali again.” However, as he continued grieving for his son, he realized something. This thought would not bring Ali back, it would not change reality, and it would not benefit humanity. So he made a very conscious decision to change his thinking. Instead of thinking “I will never hug my son again”, he reframed the tragedy and said, “My son is dead, now it is my duty to remember his legacy by living my life as he would have wanted and impacting the world in honor of his memory.” And while this new thought didn’t take away the pain of losing his child, it allowed him to cope with the loss and make sense of the heart break. Each of us is faced with the same thoughts day in and day out. Even if we haven’t lost a loved one, we are all faced with our own “Incessant thought demons” that seek to cripple us and hold us back from living a happy life. Whether we are constantly thinking about a mistake that we regret, a relationship that we ruined, or an opportunity that we lost, we all have incessant loops of unhelpful thoughts playing in the back of our mind. And the biggest problem with these thoughts is that 99% of the time… They are true! But just because something is true, does not mean that it is advantageous. For example, if you lost the woman of your dreams because you were too focused on your work and not focused on the relationship, you might be faced with the incessant thought “I will never have her in my life again”. Chances are, this thought is true. But does it serve you in any way!? No! Instead, you can choose to reframe this thought by saying “I will never have this woman in my life again, so now it is my duty to learn from my mistakes and move forward so that I can find love once more… Only this time, I will make it work.” The moment that you can learn to eradicate incessant thoughts and replace them with intentional and effective thoughts is the moment that your life will be irrevocably changed for the better. 5. Money Doesn’t Make You Happier… Unless Countless studies have been conducted on the correlation between money and happiness, and what they found was rather interesting. Money only affects your happiness up to a certain point. If you are living below the poverty line, increasing your income to a stable and livable level will drastically improve your happiness. However, going from $100,000 a year to $100,000 a month will only have a marginal impact on your happiness and mental well being. However, once you have passed roughly $7,000 a month, increasing your income will only result in a nominal increase in your happiness. So, for example, if you go from $100,000 a year to $250,000 a year, your happiness will not increase by any appreciable amount. If this is true, then why is it that so many rich people seem to live better and happier lives? Because they give so much of their money away! Studies have found that one of the only ways money can make you happier after you have passed the $70,000/year threshold is if you are giving more of your money to charitable causes, family, friends, and organizations that you support. For example, if you earn an extra $20,000 bonus this year and then use it to put a down payment on a new sports car, your happiness will only increase marginally and temporarily. However, if you took that same $20,000 and paid for a vacation with some of your closest friends, your happiness would increase dramatically and the effects would last much longer. So yes, money is important for your happiness. If you cannot afford to put food on the table, increasing your income is one of the quickest ways to increase your happiness. But after your basic living expenses are covered, giving your wealth away and spending it on the people you care about is the only way to leverage your money to increase your happiness. 6. Life is a Video Game and Challenges Make the Game Fun  Life is not fair, it is not perfect, and it is not easy. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… That’s what makes life fun! I want you to imagine that the new Call of Duty just came out, and after months of anxiously anticipating the game’s release, you take it home and start playing. You go through the tutorial, launch the first level, and then get ready to kill some virtual bad guys. But there’s a problem… There are no bad guys to kill and no challenges to overcome. Every level is simply a linear progression where you run from the beginning to the end as quickly as you can, avoiding all signs of danger or adversity. Does that sound like a fun game? Probably not. And guess what? Life is nothing more than a very intense and large scale video game. So why in the world would you want it to be easy? Why would you want a challenge and problem free life? Just think about it for a moment. Imagine that I came to your house tomorrow and gave you an Olympic Gold Medal. How would you feel? If you are anything like me, you would probably think that the medal was pretty cool, but after a few minutes of looking at it, you would quickly feel disenchanted and bored because you did nothing to earn the medal. You’d probably sell it or leave it in your sock drawer because it has no significance in your life. But imagine that you have been training for the Olympics since you were 12 years old. You worked every single day for the past ten years of your life, and when you finally had the opportunity, you competed and won. How would that medal make you feel? I would chance a guess that the medal would have more meaning and significance to you than darn near anything else that you owned. Why? Because you worked for it, you suffered for it, and you endured more pain than most people are willing to endure in order to call that medal your own. In much the same way, we gain meaning in our lives by overcoming challenges, by enduring pain, and by beating adversity. Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s meant to be a challenge. A challenge that you enjoy and have fun with, yes. But a challenge nonetheless. 7. You Don’t Find Your Purpose… It Finds You So many people in the modern world are concerned with finding their purpose. But they fail to realize that you don’t find your purpose, your purpose finds you. People don’t just wake up one day and say “Hmm, I know exactly what I am meant to do and how I am going to do it”. Instead, they find the intersection of their passions and talents and they work for years honing their skills, setting and conquering goals, and becoming better and better. Then, when they have mastered their craft, an opportunity presents itself, often in the most unlikely manner, and all of the hard work they put in begins to make sense. If you want to live a life of purpose, then you must first start by building your skills and growing yourself until you are ready to handle your purpose. Typically, this means working on rather mundane skills and projects so that you can grow your capacity as a human being. Think about the classic Karate kid movie where Mr. Miyagi had his student wax the car and paint the fence. These tasks seemed dull, monotonous, and frustrating. But, when the time came, and the first punch was thrown, these dull tasks that the Karate Kid had practiced suddenly made sense and he realized that he had been practicing for the purpose of learning a new skill. Steve Jobs summarized this truth when he said You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

Here's your host, Dave Woodward. Speaker 2:                              00:17                           Everybody, welcome back to funnel hacker radio. This is going to be a ton of fun today. I had the opportunity of having two dear friends on this show with me, Josh Rhodes and Sam Hill. Guys walk through the show. Thanks for having us man. I'm super excited. These guys love talking to friends from the south because they're super simple, but at the same time, right? There's crushing it. So will Sam and Josh have had the opportunity of being a two car, two Comma Club award winners. Jaci also is one of our dream car warm winters. So guys, the thing I like most is we're kind of trying to figure out what's the best thing to talk about. And I think as we're looking at funnel hacking live is literally like three, four days away. Stress here in the office. These guys just basic on as he know what, it's all easy guys. Speaker 2:                              00:57                           It's super simple. We have basically just two funnels. And out of those two phenols we've built multiple seven figure businesses. So I thought what a better way of just diving in and letting these guys really kind of explained to you how they are taking the little are the poster child or Porsche poster children, uh, really being one funnel away. And that's kind of the, one of the things I want to talk to you guys about today and really let them kind of shed some of their light and their knowledge and their experience running multimillion dollar businesses on exactly how you literally can be one funnel way and what they've done to simplify all that. They've got a business they run called Moneyline workshop. They'd have the option and working in agencies so these guys know what they're talking about. They're out there actually doing it, which is the part I love most more than anything else is I hate bringing people on who have, are just teaching, but they don't actually do. These guys are actually doing so with that guys, let's kind of dive right into it. Anything else you guys want to add? No, that's great. I'll, I'll say this that, uh, Sam plays an unbelievable role as the president of our businesses and I get to be the Mickey Mouse CEO, so he's actually probably going to provide way more value than anybody in [inaudible] hall. Man. I hope you didn't deliver, say, Speaker 3:                              02:11                           yeah. So, you know, I think a big part of our experience thus far, you know, Josh and I have a pretty diverse background. Our stories kind of crazy. I came from corporate sales, I owned a home inspection franchise back in the day and that's actually how Josh and I met. So our origin stories kind of kind of funky. He was a coalmine specter. Yeah. That's how we met, you know, 10 some odd years ago. Uh, and I think that when we kind of fell down this, this internet marketing online business rabbit hole, I think for a while, you know, you're, you're looking at, there's so much out there, there's so many different types of offers, types of funnels, types of niches. And I think for us, our, our breakthrough moment was when we doubled down on who we serve, what their pain point is and how to distribute solutions that work to them. Speaker 3:                              03:01                           And I think clarity, having clarity on your offer, clarity on who you reach, what you do for them and how to get that offer in front of them really are breakthrough thing. And you can really spend a lot of time trying to figure out the different tech components and how many steps you need and in your funnel. And I think for us, for awhile we kind of spun our wheels trying to figure out how fancy we needed to get once we got really, really simple and went deep on that one offer, things really started to happen for us or anything you'd add that Josh? Speaker 4:                              03:35                           No, we, we've had dotcom secrets and expert secrets at an arm's length the whole time as kind of our Almanac, if you will. And um, we've really focused on the middle of the value ladder. I don't know if many of your guests have talked about the, the middle of the value ladder word. The deliverables aren't too overwhelming, but the profit margins are just good enough to where you can really build a business there. And then now what we've done is we've built out the top and the bottom of our value ladders. That's really helped to scale revenue. So we can, we can obviously dive in. There's a lot of meat there I think you can dive into, but we will let you know, Josh, I really wanted to kind of talk about that part there because I think too often people get so focused on, well, I'm going to start with a lead gen product first and I'm going to do this, this pdf and this pdf is going to lead to a membership site. Membership sites going to lead to a Webinar, the Webinar, and you just burn out. You don't have enough money, don't have enough resources to really build that business. And I know we've talked a lot at different times about the middle of the value ladder as that starting point. If you don't mind, kind of expound on that as far as what actually is your middle of the value ladder and what, Speaker 3:                              04:39                           what did you guys start with first? Here's what's crazy. We don't have a Webinar, we don't have any lead magnets. So it's like when you look at our, our, our sort of offer and our value ladder, a lot of people are like, wait, like when we do our Milan workshops are like, wait a minute. That's it. It's like, yeah, that's it. There's nothing else to show you. Um, you know, we went straight for that two to $5,000 ticket range and went straight from a Facebook ad to an actual phone call and we use our indoctrination or warmup sequencing to sort of take the place of a Webinar or to an extent and show them that we're having a ton of success for our clients. And then we go right on that phone call and we've got a four point script that we use to close a two to five k deal. Speaker 3:                              05:26                           And we sort of have built our business kind of backwards in some way. And Josh like chime in. But we started out with high ticket to create cashflow, uh, to create Roi on our ad spin. And then, you know, now we've spent the last year or two going back and sort of backfilling with more of an agency Mrr model. Um, so it's kind of interesting because we talked to a lot of people in our Moneyline workshop that are trying to do agencies right, which is awesome. Uh, but they're trying to build up their client base enough with enough retainers month basically to hit their income target, which is totally cool and works. We sorta did it the opposite. We started out with, you know, training products at high ticket value, high gross margin, and then we've sort of now doubled back and we have both and we've built this sort of sort of foundation, you know, after the fact. Um, Josh chime in on that. Speaker 4:                              06:17                           Yeah. Like, um, if you're listening to this podcast or an interview and you're trying to make, make a run at this thing called business or entrepreneurship and you're, you don't yet have specificity on the potential customer Avatar and what your offer is for them. The, the, the greatest way to get to that specificity is get on the phone obviously. And which I know we're not the first person to tell, you know, to give that advice. But what's going to happen is it's going to take you out of an economical whirlpool that I think a lot of people get taught in, which is trying to sell 49 to $97 widgets, whatever that might be and how they may be noble and excellent products. Don't get me wrong, but the sheer economics and the principles of capitalism or are going to keep you at bay and you're going to find yourself stuck. Speaker 4:                              07:15                           And so what we did is we looked out and said, okay, which, um, which potential prospects out there are in it for themselves and they have to eat what they kill and they know that if they aren't killing, they're not eating. Okay. Those people probably have some kind of bleeding neck pain that we can go try to solve, provide a tourniquet for. And then we said, okay, instead of charging $97 for the problem, let's just go charge two to five k but here's the, here's where the guts come in. You got to have courage to leave a ton of money on the table at first. And when, I mean a ton of money, a lot of potential $97 transactions or whatever small price point that you're wanting to start with because of maybe your self esteem or, or, or imposter syndrome or whatever. Maybe you're dealing with, you've got to be cool with having a 5% or less global conversion rate on your sales calls for example. Speaker 4:                              08:14                           And you've got to be okay leaving money, quote unquote on the table. And then once you get to a place, like we didn't even have two offers until um, we were well into two comma club land. Um, we did two comma club and 10 months I believe maybe with a little less than that. And then it was probably 16 months before we introduced our second offer period. And the second offer was an agency model. Um, and now we get to it's funnel stacking to some extent or revenue model stacking to where we enjoy a little bit of both worlds but we didn't try to enjoy that in our profit margins were able to underwrite us cause we just lived in the middle of that value ladder instead of trying to, you know, sell enough $97 widgets or we also had the knowledge or at least the awareness to not try to go sell and maybe you can, but we didn't go start at a 25 or 50 k contract value. Speaker 4:                              09:09                           We just kind of lived in that two to five k world. They're in the middle of the value ladder and it was scalable and it worked well. I know that get on the phone is a scary thing for a lot of people. And uh, how did you guys overcome that fear of, again, you're going basically from a Facebook ad to a phone call application. Is that right? Yeah, yeah. It'll, what's your cost per [inaudible], your DPL or what's your, how much do you spend in basically to get that phone to ring? So, um, I think you said something, Dave, you know, or you alluded to this, which is a lot of people don't understand like especially Internet marketing can be a Assad to some extent because you, you, you don't think like a business owner right out of the gate. It, Internet marketing is so accessible, like online business, so accessible. Speaker 4:                              09:57                           You're not necessarily understanding that you've got to have drag gunpowder and capital. And the, um, one thing that we quickly established was the metric that you just asked for, which is, um, in our world cost per booking or cost per appointment, um, in our lingo and we will average anywhere between 15 and $45 depending on the time of the day that Mark Zuckerberg and the other social warlords decided the outlet. But anyway, once you know, um, those, those numbers, you can pretty much pushed the brake or the gas pedal on the floorboard of your business is whenever you want to. And it gives you the control that a lot of people give. But then once you know those, they're like the candlelight deceiving lead metrics. Cause then you got to really know, well how many of those phone calls do I need before I close deals, et cetera. So you, you've got to start somewhere. And that cost per lead cost per booking, those are, those are great places Speaker 3:                              11:03                           to start looking at it. Go ahead. No, I was going to say, you know, you asking about getting on the phone and you know, w we have a sales script, you know, just like you've got a headline and a Facebook ad and you've got a headline on a, on a landing page and you know, like we just use sales scripts and which sounds old fashion and it Julie, not all that is sexy and exciting, but it works. And I think that's what enables you to have confidence is because really at the end of the day, I think being simpler and your offer and kind of what you do simplifies everything else, right? So when you go deep on one offer, it makes your traffic simpler, it makes your booking simpler, it makes your sales calls simpler to make sure delivery and your ability to help your clients have success. Speaker 3:                              11:51                           Simple as well. Because you're focused on one thing and you have a deliverable that you can, you can actually fulfill for your clients and help them achieve depending on how you know, what you're offering, man, it makes everything simpler. So the crazy thing is that our social proof and our customer success skyrocketed when we doubled down on one offer. Um, that, that was also one of the fascinating things we elevated, but our clients also elevated big time. So when we're on a call, a sales call, to kind of touch on that, we just use a really simple sales script, which kind of takes the pressure off, you know, because we're not trying to razzle dazzle on every call. It's just we've got a really simple talk track that's focused on their pain points are offer and how we can help them be our next success story. Which kind of goes back to that clarity and simplicity thing. You know, versus trying to dabble in all this different stuff. We just really said, let's dominate one offer, you know, and, and so on. So, you know, that's it. Speaker 4:                              12:52                           So what is, who is your, who's your niche? Who Do you guys, are you guys going after for that two to $5,000 price point? Yeah. So, uh, real estate agents, loan officers, uh, is one business. And then Moneyline workshop is really anyone trying to build a client based service, business agency owners, consultants, coaches. If you provide any level of done with tee or done for you service. And that goes for anybody out there listening. Like it could be a limousine service, it could be a life coach, it could be just about any vertical needs, some kind of done for you service, which is something I skipped over while ago. Like if you're out there listening to you need traction, create a done for you service. It's the easiest thing to sell on the planet. And we didn't do that at first and that's why our global convergence percentage was so low. Speaker 4:                              13:44                           But we have profit margins built in so that when we did close the deal it was a massive cash injection. And now we have a little bit of both worlds. And the thing that flies off the shelf is our done for you service. And it is just once you, like, like Sam said, once you have a script, you gotta be loyal to the script and not get emotional about your conversations and try to tailor everything. You got to control the conversation and keep everybody in a world of, in your world or they'll take it, they'll take you down, what's wrong with Momma and then I'll take them fail and they'll, you know, all that. But if you can maintain control, it's really kind of like ab split testing with the click funnels landing. It's like this script versus this script, but I've got to be loyal to these, these scripts or you'll never know what really works. Speaker 4:                              14:31                           I love that. So what is your guys off for the two to 5,000 bucks? What did they get? They get, um, a training element, ongoing training elements to help them acquire certain skills. Um, they get ongoing support and coaching. Um, we provide them with a, um, uh, software element and um, depending on where they enter in their, with their investments, they might get a few other things. Like maybe we might help them launch some campaigns. You know, done with you type type, it is very much a done with you program, the high ticket quote unquote, depending on where your price point is and maybe your vertical can withstand a $10,000 middle of the value ladder offer, you know, like a dentist or an ophthalmologist is going to be able to pay more than you know, maybe someone who owns a garage door repair business. It's just because their average customer values are higher, which I guess now that I'm thinking out loud, if you're trying to determine your price points, look at your potential customer avatars, avatars, average customer value. Because if they're a plastic surgeon averaging $8,000 a procedure there, they're able to pay you more per lead or poor per deliverable than maybe someone who has a hundred or $200 like a locksmith. Speaker 2:                              15:51                           I totally agree. I had that conversation. My son Chandler the other day, we were talking about, uh, you know, he's kind of going through and the same type of thing, building out this agency model and you know, you have to kind of pick whoever your avatar is going to be. And realize whoever you pick, they have certain numbers that they just, it's Roi for them. I mean it's like they know I can only spend x to acquire a customer. And I think the biggest mistake a lot of agency owners make is they don't know who their customers, they don't know what those metrics are for that customer. And it's very hard to price your services if you don't know what your client basically what their, what their metrics are as well. So I really appreciate you're hitting on that Josh. Yeah. Speaker 3:                              16:27                           Say something else today that I think Josh just said that, you know, brought a lot of stuff to my brain. I think another sort of key for us was when we figured out this progression from do it yourself customer too, we'll do it with you customer to, we'll do it for you customer. And I think a lot of times people aren't thinking, you know, entrepreneurs aren't thinking about those three different types of delivering your value to the customer. And one of the things we learned from Russell actually was, you know, you can deliver the same thing or similar value pieces in different experiences, different theater. Some people like to do it themselves and get their logins and go on their merry way. Other people really like to like have a coach alongside with them so you're actually doing the deliverable with them and then other people like it when you just do it for them when you build the funnel form or whatever. Speaker 3:                              17:19                           Right. And we've sort of evolved our offer over the years now where like we see a trend with our clientele even, you know, across all of our verticals. Doing it within is extremely valuable. You know, versus there's a lot of courses out there in courses are great and there for the right person sometimes they're a fantastic fit, but we really pivoted our offer from here's your logins, good luck to hey, we're going to do it with you. And almost as much as we can guarantee your success in your experience with the program, which in turn has fed our social proof dramatically, right? Like, as we've invested more in their success, they're invested more on our success. So it's pretty interesting when, in terms of the high ticket game, so tell me guys, how have you guys been able to avoid scope creep in a done for you are done with you type of program? Because I know especially in the agency model, scope creep is one of the hardest things. Did you, do you want to over deliver? But at the same time we go on, Speaker 4:                              18:18                           man, I should've sold a nice $7 price point and just walked away. Yeah. Uh, well first of all to say we perfectly have would be a lie. Uh, we, we are entrepreneurs after all and there's a hallway full of doors and they all say opportunity on him. And Sam and I are salesmen as well and we love persuasion and we love just getting the validation of the sale. And so we've, we've had to slap our own risks. Um, but at the same time, it's not necessarily a, you know, I think it's a forgivable sin too to have scope creep, but at some point you definitely have to make a decision and come to level five agreement together and go, you know what? We cannot do the custom video branding element for every customer, but we can do this Google ad words campaign for everybody because it works for everybody and we don't have to spend five hours on that as opposed to the custom video, you know, et Cetera, et Cetera, whatever the illustrations are out there. And so, um, you, you, you avoid scope creep by being loyal to your metrics that matter to the growth of your business and the results of the client. A lot of times if you have an emotional connection or some aspiration that you want, that can get in the way of what actually matters in the true business because the money is agnostic, it doesn't care about what Josh thinks about a particular product. It just wants to know where it needs to travel to get the most value in return. Speaker 3:                              19:52                           Yeah, you've got to reverse engineer kind of your goals a little bit. So, you know, if you're looking for a lifestyle business that's more about, you know, um, larger cash injections and you don't want staff and employees and all that stuff, then you know, you want to limit your scope as much as possible. Otherwise you're never going to be able to fulfill it. Fill it. I'll always be you Lou. Then that made that kind of never ending treadmill. You know, Josh and I have grown and act like, I mean, we've got almost 20 full time employees now. I mean, we first started, we didn't have plans to have any employees. It's just us, you know, so it's kind of funny like, wow, we have a big team. Uh, but that's because you know, that we defined our scope and we also said, all right, let's think more like business owners and less like just a funnel guy, right? Speaker 3:                              20:39                           For a time. And let's actually build out a staff that can fulfill the scope, you know, at scale and all that stuff's important because you don't always think out ahead. You always think maybe you're just going to deliver it, you're going to deliver it, but eventually you're just going to reach your, your your limit and your ceiling, you know, and until you're willing to scale out and acquire non funnel building skills, more just business growth skills, sales skills, marketing, hiring, all that stuff. Sometimes that's the key to taking your funnel to the next level. Ironically, it's not as much about opt in rates and conversion rates as it is stuff like people, you know? No, I totally agree. Yeah. Speaker 4:                              21:15                           I think especially when you're trying to scale that people often becomes really huge for you guys. Tell me, when you start taking a look, I love some of the main things you guys have hit on. The fact is you really have to start thinking more as a business owner and said, I've just been, we'd run an agency or I'm to try this. Internet marketing game is you. First of all, I started thinking as business owners, super amazing things happen because now all of a sudden you start paying attention to the metrics. You start knowing your numbers. When you start again, you were kind of like 15 to 15 to $45 a for customer lead or, or booking. How many, what's your typical, how many causes your bookings do you need before you actually close one? What's, what are some of the numbers you guys have currently? Speaker 3:                              21:55                           Yeah, good question. I mean, I think we'll see anywhere from, some of it's fluctuated based on our sales staff, right? So now, I mean we have a full sales staff taking calls all day long, all over the country. So you know, on a typical sales day right now we'll see anywhere from four to eight transactions come through in a, in a day on, you know, 40 to 60 calls. Some of that can fluctuate with the market too, depending on, you know, what's, cause our, our business has some seasonality to it. Um, but Speaker 4:                              22:25                           you've got, I mean, you've got a 10% close rate then. Yeah. And that's, that's like, um, really an interesting question and I actually had to pause and Sam hit on it, but it's there, it's, there, there becomes, when you start to scale, at least it becomes these pressure valves that you've got to control. It's like the, the lock in the dam and the water, like releasing a very precise amount of water. So we actually, um, we actually burn a lot of leads. Like some of our leads are just like the, those of bananas that you don't get to eat on the counter bruising and nodding and, and like, I actually told someone this today, like someone gave him bad advice. I was talking to a young marketer and training and they were like, yeah, somebody told me I don't need to go, uh, generate so many leads yet because I'm not, I'm going to get overwhelmed with the work. Speaker 4:                              23:18                           And I was like, dude, that's why you're stuck. You need the rotting bananas on the counter or you're not going to have enough food to eat. And, and, and that was a big part of what we do. And so now it's actually really kind of scientific, like we know how many leads generally in a seven day period that each of our sales team members need in order to hit their quota. And that's been a fun process that we've, that we've taken on. But yeah, we'll, we'll scale and ebb and flow based on availability of our, our sales team because they become our conversion apparatus. Right. Oh sure. So when did you guys start bringing on sales guys? Because at first it was just the two of you guys taking the sales calls? I, as I recall. Oh yeah, a lot of sales calls. I think it was the moment when, uh, this is a great question because a lot of people are going to try to either delegate too early or not delegate ever. And if there's a moment when it's working so well, and you've got, you know, a repeatable unit, like we've got a repeatable funnel and it's predictable and, and you're saying things like, Hey, do you want to take the next sales call? Speaker 4:                              24:35                           That's when, you know, I probably should, you know, get off, get the script out of my brain, put it on a, on a Google doc, hire someone, put them on a good commission rate and let's let them, you know, when for us and let's get them up to 80% efficiency as fast as possible and binge that out while your business partner or somebody else or while you still are, um, are, are crushing deals until you get that person up to speed and then you do it. And don't hire too many salespeople at the same time. That's another thing that's a mistake we've made because what happens is you start to segment your lead flow into weakness and none of the salespeople can get enough problem based learning under their belt fast enough. And then all of your conversion rates go down, your revenue goes down and you're just like, what? We hired five new salespeople. They should be five x thing, our sales. But it actually has the exact opposite of thing because the salespeople need, they need time and you need time with your script to get vested and grafted into the system. Uh, such great advice. I would. So tell me, when you're looking at your sales guys, how do you typically pay as far as commission? And you would, do you have a salary plus commission? You paid just commission. How much commission do you guys pay Sam? Speaker 3:                              25:54                           Yeah, great question. Uh, so for most of our sales staff, that's a hundred percent commission. Uh, and our commission rates actually kind of going back to your metrics and your economics depend on what they're selling. So with high ticket offers, you wish in our niche, our price point is more high ticket. You know, they get a larger cup can be anywhere from, you know, 12 to 18% per enrollment. But when you're selling a recurring service and agency model, your margins are less because typically the monthly value is less, even though the total contract value might be the same, you're not getting all that value up front. Right. So your compensation model is a little bit different. So for some of our sales staff, they're really in the portfolio building game and we have salespeople that have 75 accounts. They get paid on every month. It's crazy. It's awesome, you know? Yeah, that's what I mean. It's one of the reasons we started our company. And so we can provide opportunity to like that. So they're stacking right accounts, a recurring accounts and then others are really going after that. You know, that big sale. They want to get that big commission right there. And then, so you've got to really drive your commissionable component based on your end game, you know, otherwise you're just kind of shooting in the dark. Speaker 2:                              27:07                           Yeah. And I would say that a commission rates can increase or decrease Speaker 4:                              27:12                           based on, uh, whether or not your sales staff has to generate a quota of leads. So our sales staff typically doesn't, they are, they wake up every morning and their books and they just get to pick up the phone and not worry about where that person came from in the funnel. They just, they have an application in front of them and they magically appeared on the calendar. But if you have a sales team to ask to prospect and it has to work, you know, shake trees, then they usually they usually deserve and earn or warrants a little bit more of a Speaker 3:                              27:45                           what piece of the Pie. Speaker 2:                              27:47                           So is your sale, is it a onetime clothes or is it a setter and a closer type of thing? Speaker 3:                              27:52                           One time. One time close. Yeah, about 90% of all of our sales are on the very first call. Which separate give Dave the followup close percentage and how interesting that is. Yeah, we'll follow up. Close percentage is going to be aware from five to 8% some months it's even less. But some of that goes back to your Avatar, right? Like if you're selling to a business owner, you've probably got more contracting, more followup, more questions. If you sell to a consumer, like, and I'd say that's one of our things in roads, like we, we've found that you really need to figure out who is your Avatar, what is their pain, what do they need? Where they want, what's their life like? What's their industry like? And we've found that in our industry, we tend to sell more to consumers than we do to business owners. Don't get me wrong, we talked to, you know, different clients that have big teams in big businesses, but the lion share of the industry is to solo point person, right? So it's more like selling to a consumer. Uh, and so that influences the way that we sell to them because they don't think in terms of like budgets and metrics and business capital like we do, right? Which is fine. They just think a little bit differently. So then we position our sale as you're going to do it, let's do it, you know? Uh, and so our entire funnel shaped around that sales call, that strategy call. So that, and that's what makes it work. Speaker 2:                              29:13                           Yes ma'am. I love that. I think that's the biggest mistake so many agencies struggle with when they first get going is if you're going to sell it to the Solo Preneur, you are really selling more B to c, then you are B to B. And it's totally changes the funnel. It changes the scripts, it changes everything. And I think a, I see a lot of agencies get fresher when they try to go on after this, you know, this large B2b type of business model and you're like, wait a second, I've got a gatekeeper. And then I've got three people on the board want to make a decision and they try elephant hunting near instead of just going after these. There's so many other people out there who have a ton of pain who are in the Solo Preneur, you know, six figures to seven figures were you have good businesses, but they're out there. Speaker 2:                              29:52                           They have to, again, Josh, thank you made mention of it. Really these, these are the people who have to go out and kill something every single day so they can feed their own families. And I think that's such an easier and better business model, especially as an agency on when you're going after it to really close down that sales cycle. Because otherwise as an agency again, all of a sudden you've got this followup sequences and cheese. I'm in this thing three months and all of a sudden you find yourself like a pharmaceutical salesperson trying to close large x ray machine or cats can't. Yes, that's right. Speaker 3:                              30:23                           Yeah. And that keeps the, keeps everything you know streamline with your sales and your funnel. Like when we say ours is simple, we mean that people go from Facebook ads to client in 24 to 48 hours. Speaker 2:                              30:35                           Yes. That's it. So fast, Sam. That is so fast. Speaker 3:                              30:39                           There's no like elaborate followup sequences and webinars and email lists that lead the email list that lead to email lists. I mean all that stuff's fine. I'm just saying that for us. Simple southerners. Speaker 4:                              30:51                           Yeah. Well, hey Dave, we got to keep it country simple man. And for all the funnel hackers listening to this, like kind of a big conceptual level, like keep your sales cycles short because you need that cash. If you're not taking VC capital from somewhere, like this whole click funnels motto is real. Like if you're going to do that, you got to make sure don't let the prospects and the leads linger. Go give him a call to action. Give them that deadline, give them that takeaway. Whatever you need to do. I'm not saying obviously sell them snake oil. I'm just saying make sure they know that they need that. The best thing they can do is purchase your product or service in order for them to reach their goals. Don't tell them that later.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s easy to fall into the “if…then” trap when it comes to money. If we had an extra 400 dollars a month, then dot dot dot. Or, If we had a 5 bedroom home instead of a 3 bedroom home then dot dot dot. And when we start doing this if...then thing, it begins to impact our marriage. Money is definitely top of the worry list for a lot of couples around the world. I know how hopeless it can feel about changing your financial situation, so I want to encourage you that we have some good news. The great news is not some get-rich-quick scheme. No, it’s that you can shift your marriage so that you can move away from that hopeless feeling, regardless of your financial situation. So let’s jump in. How Financial Issues Impact Marriage Before we get to the solution we need to spell the problem out. Not surprisingly, research finds that financial strain does impact marriage by reducing marriage quality and also reducing the stability of the marriage[i]. What’s fascinating is you can actually put a number to this. The direct link between financial strain and reduced marital satisfaction accounts for up to 15% of the total variation in marital satisfaction[ii]. If you are struggling financially or unhappy with your financial situation, you are far more likely to see your entire marriage as not working. I think this is good to point out because in this situation you have a pretty specific issue but you’re extrapolating it to a much larger one. For me, that’s a checkpoint. As in: stop and think about it. Because what we just identified is that you may only have a money issue. But you’ve made that into a marriage issue. I think it begs the question, is that necessary? Yes — financial strains impacts marriage. But how much power have you given to that issue? So money can be made into a bigger issue than it really is. But: just to continue the thought of how marriage is impacted by finances: financial issues also impact marriage indirectly through the way they change how you act. Financial strain due to unemployment, debt, low income or other issues increases stress and depressive symptoms for both spouses. This, in turn, reduces the amount of social support, warmth & affection which the spouses show to each other and increases the level of negative communication: things like anger, criticism or dislike. This behavior reduces marital satisfaction, and this reduced satisfaction increases depressive symptoms, creating a destructive cycle[iii]. So the way money makes you think and talk to each other ends up having a worse impact on your marriage than the money problem itself. Other research supports this: A study from 2008[iv] entitled “Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness, but it Helps” compared low income and medium income couples. Low-income couples had higher levels of psychological distress and also scored lower on measures of marital adjustment. And as we all know, financial difficulties are also one of the main reasons couples give after divorcing for why their marriage broke down[v]. Conversely, high income is directly linked to high marital satisfaction, and also indirectly influences it by reducing pressure and stress within the marriage[vi]. Now I know at this point it sounds like we have a simple formula: increase the moolah, increase the marriage mojo. But just stay with me for a bit longer. Financial Satisfaction I’d like to look at financial satisfaction. Financial satisfaction is not about having more money. It’s about being satisfied with the money you have. Now financial satisfaction is strongly linked to marital satisfaction[vii]. As I mentioned, financial satisfaction is not the same as simply having lots of money, although it is negatively correlated with financial strain. There are other factors which influence financial satisfaction in marriage, including: The perception that you have enough money and are coping. Smart financial decisions: families and couples who pay bills on t...

[8:00] Why ketogenics may be the best fight against cancer we have. [11:05] How to connect with Tom. In this episode… Nobody has been more successful in business than Tom Bilyeu. His company, QuestNutrition is one of the fastest growing businesses out there. But he’s had his share of low points on his journey toward success, and none of them were more difficult than the moment he came to realize that money doesn’t buy happiness. On this episode you’ll hear it from Tom’s own mouth and discover what drives him not that his pursuit of money for the sake of money is gone. “The only thing money is good for is facilitating something else.” That’s what Tom says during this conversation - and what he means is that naturally, money can provide a lot of good things for your life and for others - but if you don’t put your focus on the value the money will allow you to provide to the lives of others, you’ll be miserable as you chase it. We’ve all heard that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” and it’s easy to see why. Greed, extortion, manipulation, and all kinds of other vices have been known to flow out of people who only care about money. But What Tom has to teach us on this episode, a life lesson that he learned the hard way, is that the purpose of building a huge business that generates lots of revenue is to serve others. That’s a purpose that fuels generosity, not greed. Find out more of the hard lessons’ Tom has learned on this episode.

Fiona Finn was born in Ohio but raised in Ireland. A Southwest Florida resident for the last twenty years, she graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business from the University of South Florida. A former elementary school teacher, she also has been a real estate agent and broker. She has published three other books - Barbie: A Parody (2011), Cartoons: A Parody (2012), Pennies from Heaven: You Make Money, Money Doesn’t Make You (2013). Five months into her long battle with stage III colon cancer, Fiona Finn’s husband left her on Father’s Day, leaving her and her three children penniless. Although that was one of the most painful days in her life, it spurred her to adopt a new mission in life. Now on a personal crusade, she is a leading advocate for women who are seven times more likely to get abandoned shortly after their diagnosis of cancer… According to The Cancer Journal (July 30, 2009), the divorce rate is approximately 21 percent for cancer-stricken wives, compared to 3 percent when husbands get ill. In an effort to get the word out on this disturbing information and help those affected by it, Fiona gives an insider’s account of how ‘in sickness and in health’ can be a lopsided vow in her new memoir, RAW: One Woman’s Journey Through Love, Loss, and Cancer (April 1, 2014). Believing that “no woman should ever be left behind on the cancer battlefield,” she calls RAW painfully revealing, stressing that it is no coincidence that RAW spells WAR backwards. Like war, the memories linger for cancer survivors long after the event has passed. And sadly, instead of trying to save their lives, some women cancer survivors desperately focus on trying to save their marriage. Fiona herself, like other survivors, cut short her treatment in an effort to focus her attention on getting her husband back. Hoping to save others from the sense of hopelessness that caused her to attempt suicide, she calls for women to be strong and courageous. As she has proven, you can survive, you can heal, and you can get better. In addition to keying in on her battle with cancer, her memoir tells her story about dealing with two decades of abusive relationships and how to triumph over adversity. Additionally, it is infused with humor because Fiona strongly believes that laughter brings wellness. She also included words of wisdom from such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg, Dr. Phil, and Conan O’Brien. “…The process of writing RAW was like skinning an onion, so much so I bled. Each layer of myself I peeled back...It took some time, but finally I realized that if RAW was to be really raw and uncut, then I would have to leave everything on the table…” Honored to be chosen as the 2014 cancer survivor to give a speech for The American Cancer Relay for Life events in her local Ft. Myers, Florida community, Fiona is one of nearly 14 million cancer survivors. Recognizing that knowledge is power, she is doing all she can to inspire as many as possible to move on and get back on a path of healing. Join Janét and Fiona as they discuss her life, her book and the courage to be a survivor and inspiration to all.

After I spoke with Petrel McLeod about her book, "Money Doesn't Grow On Trees - At Least Not Yet", I thought that it would be a great idea to get her thoughts on the economy and how to manage your way through it. It is a interesting listen. Petrel can be contacted at info@bemymoneycoach.com. If you have any comments, feedback or suggestions, please feel to contact me at info@blackcanadianman.com.

Hello! This is Mystic Babylon broadcasting from near Haight Street with the best of San Francisco poetry. Today we have some poetry from two other poets besides me. First I have some poetry from a poet who asked me a long time ago to record some of her works named Lenore Weiss. She gave me a disk of what she called cell-phone poetry and I extracted one small snippet from that recording. After that I have some poetry from a poet named David Alpaugh. He also runs a small press. David Alpaugh’s works have appeared in more than a hundred literary journals and anthologies. His first collection, Counterpoint, won a prize, and is published by Story Line Press. He has had chapbooks published by Coracle Books and Pudding House Publications. His new book HEAVY LIFTING has just been published by Alehouse Press. Order it direct from the poet for $15 postpaid: Small Poetry Press Distribution, P.O. Box 5342, Concord, CA 94524, or go to: http://www.alehousepress.com . He has his small press at: http://www.smallpoetrypress.com . May I remind you to read and buy our books. My poetry book is: Spirits of Bondage and Inherent Transcendence, and my new novel is called: Little Bird Told Me. My voice-over for that book is almost finished and as soon as I get it submitted to Audible.com in its full version, for sale, I will start posting it chapter by chapter over a whole year. David's picture and part of the cover from his new book is above. Remember, as Poor Richard’s Almanac said, “Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees”.

What was your initial attraction to work in retail and consumer products? * You've witnessed companies raise lots of money and have lots of momentum and then not be able to become profitable or reach their goals and end up falling apart. What were some of the learnings from these experiences? * What attracted you to the world of investing and how did you make decisions as an angel investor? * When it comes to consumer products in 2020 where you no longer can scale efficiently like you could of 10 years ago, what is the key? * You're currently closing your first fund, what attracted you to shift to become a VC from being an angel investor? * What are current retail trends that you are focused on? * We've seen large corporations finally wake up to ecommerce during COVID. Do you think, even though ecommerce penetration has increased substantially this year, it's more competitive than it was pre-COVID? * What's one thing that you would change when it comes to venture capital? * What's the best piece of advice that you've received?
