De som kaller seg kynikere er ofte stolte av sin evne til å tenke kritisk og være skeptiske til andres motiver, og de anser denne evnen som tegn på en uovertruffen intelligens. Fortellingene våre styrker denne myten ved å glorifisere kalde, kalkulerende og kyniske hovedpersoner som detektiv Sherlock Holmes. Den kjente etterforskeren har en egen evne til å lese mennesker og se bak folks fasade, og der oppdager han det verste i oss, og slik avslører han skurken.Undersøkelser fra 2018 hevder imidlertid at det kyniske geniet er en myte. I en omfattende tverrkulturell analyse publisert i Personal and Social Psychology Bulletin 11. juli, konkluderer sosialpsykolog Olga Stavrova fra Tilburg University i Nederland og evolusjonspsykolog Daniel Ehlebracht fra Universitetet i Köln i Tyskland at de mest kompetente menneskene ikke er så kynisk tross alt.Studiens forfattere påpeker at det er en grunn til at folk synes det er smart å være kynisk. Forestillingen om at vi fortrinnsvis er drevet av egeninteresse er et poeng som frontes i evolusjonær biologi og økonomisk teori. Vi blir ofte lært at «den sterkestes rett» krever at folk dypest sett prioriterer sine individuelle interesser. Derfor er det bare logisk å tro at vi er grunnleggende egoistiske og beskytter oss selv, og dette resonnementet ender med at vi tenker det verste om folk og havner i kynismens kalde livsanskuelse. Kanskje bedømmer kynikeren enkelte mennesker feil, men i så fall er det bedre å være føre var enn etter snar. Det er med andre ord lurt å være tilbakeholden, kritisk, mellommenneskelig distansert og mistenksom i følge kynikeren, som også påberoper seg å være realistisk. Forfatterne bak studien om kynisme hevder imidlertid at denne holdningen likevel ikke er så nyttig hvis det er vår standardposisjon, og bemerker at en rekke studier viser sammenheng mellom tillit og god helse. Det er også en relasjon mellom tillit og gode relasjoner som igjen er direkte linket opp til et psykisk og fysisk sunt liv. Også innenfor økonomi har man funnet ut at verst-tenkelig tankegang har en tendens til å føre til dårligere resultater når det gjelder inntjening og velvære.Velkommen til en ikke-kynisk episode av SinnSyn om kynisme. Nå skal du få være med til et foredrag hvor jeg drøfter kynismens utspekulerte vesen.Takk for at du hører å SinnSyn. Det siste segmentet i denne episoden var kun et kort utdrag for en lengre refleksjonsrunde omkring kynismens psykologi Vi du høre hele foredraget, kan du gå til episode #37 på Patreon. I den episoden dykker jeg videre ned i de psykologiske mekanismene som ligger bak det hånlige fliret og den intellektuelle kulden som kynikeren bruker som sitt skjold mot verden. I tillegg finner du nærmere hundre andre poster fra denne podcasten inne på Patreon. Vil du har mer SinnSyn hver måned kan du altså gå til min Patreon-side. Her finner du masse eksklusivt materiale. Her er det flere episoder av SinnSyn, mentale øvelser, mye videomateriale og jeg leser bøkene mine, kapittel for kapittel, slik at Patreon til slutt huser lydbokversjonen av mine tre bøker. Hvis du finner verdi her på SinnSyn, vil ha mer SinnSyn hver måned, og har lyst til å støtte prosjektet, slik at jeg kan holde hjula i gang her på podcasten, er et abonnement på Patreon av stor betydning for dette prosjektet. Du kan selv velge beløp per måned, og beløpet vil altså gi deg et medlemskap på mitt såkalte mentale treningsstudio. Jeg vil også benytte anledningen til å takke alle dere som allerede er Patreon supportere. Det er lyttere som dere som sørger for at lysene er på her inne på SinnSyn uke etter uke, måned etter måned, år etter år. Det er kostnadskrevende på mange måter å drive denne podcasten, men jeg elsker å gjøre det, og med støtte fra Patreon-lyttere kan jeg prioritere SinnSyn hver uke! Tusen takk for det!

After a wild weekend in the Bay Area with 3 major lootings of major retailers I call in the OGs to discuss the craziness. I bring my old friends Nate & Ju on to discuss local news as well as the unfortunate murder of Young Dolph. We quickly tap into the news of murderer Kyle Rittenhouse getting off free. We transition into a segment where I try to introduce the listeners to Nate & Ju by asking a bunch of random questions. From there we bounce into sports talk and I admit being wrong about the Warriors & Jordan Poole and how some top NBA scorers aren't transitioning to new offensive foul rules. We have a behind the scenes discussion about Trader Joe's snacks and my new job. Catch that exclusively on patreon.com/industryspecial.

In 2017 Canadian software developers, Matt Hall, and John Watkinson debuted what would become a landmark project in the early crypto art movement, the CryptoPunks. Released through their company Larva Labs, the CryptoPunks consisted of 10,000 unique collectible characters whose chain of title would be tracked on the Ethereum blockchain. Each punk is a 24 by 24 pixel avatar whose individual traits were generated algorithmically. From Mohawks to shaved heads, from eye patches to colored eyeshadow and even from human men and women to apes, zombies, and aliens, every punk is one of a kind, but all would look perfectly at home intimidating a businessman in a classic eight bit Nintendo game. Although Hall and Watkinson kept a thousand CryptoPunks for themselves, the duo released the other 9,000 punks for free to any Ethereum users willing to pay the gas fees to claim them back in 2017. But the punks value on the secondary market and their presence in popular culture have exploded in the years since. In June 2021, a single alien punk sold at Sotheby's for $11.75 million. Two months later, Visa paid $150,000 to acquire a CryptoPunk for its corporate collection and at this September's Met gala Reddit, co-founder Alexis Ohanian wore a badge depicting a CryptoPunk he bought for his wife, tennis superstar, Serena Williams, because he thought it resembled her. But the crypto punks have also brought together a tight knit global community who see the project and the wider crypto art space as so much more than driver of record sales and red carpet moments. As part of art Artnet's effort to bridge the gap between the crypto community and the world of fine art, Artnet's Director of NFTs, Jiayin Chen, recently held a round table discussion with three early collectors of Crypto Punks, also known within the community simply as OGs. They are B, one of the only known women among the original crypto punk claimants, Claire Silver, who is now a renowned crypto artist in her own rights and Mr. 703, who originally claimed well over 700 crypto punks and currently ranks as the fifth largest collector of the series worldwide. Jiayin connected with the trio over zoom a few days before the third annual NFT NYC conference kicked off in Time Square.
While Mark is out of town, the OGs are back together. Steve joins Aaron from Atlanta as we do a show filled with Million Dollars But... questions. We smoke the new Tatuaje Frank Redux 1 while giving our favorite Halloween candy and what our walk up songs would be if we were professional ball players.
Hey everybody I'm Ryan and welcome back to Eggs! This week we have a unique episode for you going back in time to feature one of my favorite interviews from the past. Why you ask? For people who didn't catch last week's show, for the next little bit, approximately 12 weeks, we're going to be doing things a little differently. As discussed at length on last week's show, my favorite co-host and yours, Mike, has begun and is now up to his eyeballs in an exciting new adventure. Mike is presently taking part in a super-intensive web development Bootcamp as part of a big career pivot he's exploring. Off-air he and I have talked and he's explained he's presently programming from 10 AM to midnight, between classwork and homework, and recording this show at our regular cadence simply isn't doable for him.That said, we are working diligently to put together some fun programming for you and take advantage of this break in our regularly scheduled program. More on that in the coming weeks, but let's chat about today's drop. Today we are going way back in time to July 2019 for one of my all-time favorite interviews with the author, speaker, and philanthropist, Michael G. Dash. Michaels story is one wrought with ups and downs from drug and gambling addiction to building multimillion-dollar businesses. At the time he appeared in-person on Eggs from our downtown Salt Lake City studio, he was promoting his book Chasing the High which details his story in all of its gritty details all so that those he encounters or works with as part of his F.A.T.E. Program, can learn from his experience.I am really excited to share this show with new listeners who may have missed it, and even more for those OGs who have heard it but could benefit from hearing it again. So, without further adieu, join me in going all the way back to a pre-COVID world, July 11, 2019, for a conversation with Michael G. Dash. Let's go!----Hey everyone, welcome back to a special edition of EGGS. This week we have special guest Michael G. Dash. Michael Dash is an entrepreneur, business owner, author, speaker, coach, and philanthropist available for speaking engagements, both for young people and for active professionals. Michael has had a collection of unique experiences from “chasing the high” with his prior gambling and drug addiction to overcoming adversity when his business partner conspired against him.Despite these challenges, Michael persevered and built a thriving business bringing in $5+ million dollars in revenue each year. Michael's experiences give him a unique mindset that he imparts to audiences to help them lead their best life personally and professionally.

Anime and Manga have brought us some of the best duos in fiction. In this new series, we're taking a look at some of the most iconic duos in anime from the new school and the old school. Of course, we had to start things off with a pair of OGs in Goku and Vegeta from the Dragon Ball franchise and Naruto and Sasuke from the Naruto franchise. In the first segment, we look at how both duos looked fighting against, as well as with each other, and how their bonds were formed. After that, we compared them to see where their similarities lay and how they differed. Which of these anime duos is your favorite? Comment and let us know!

Lola Berry is one of the OGs of the Australian wellness scene, she's a nutritionist, author and podcaster who as you'll hear shortly, takes a more lenient approach to clean living than most. In her new book - her 11th! - Fearlessly Failing (Affirm Press, $29.99) - she explores why failure is the best thing that can ever happen to you, seriously. Stuff ups may cause major cringe, but according to Lola, failure is something we should not only run towards but also embrace. Like big, warm hug vibes. In this chat, Lola not only talks about her own failures - from career mistakes to heartbreaks - she also opens up about her mental health journey and her new life in LA. She earns herself the moniker ‘the naughty nutritionist' too.

Sjávarútvegsdagurinn er haldinn í Hörpu í dag. Yfirskrift dagsins í ár er: Vel í stakk búinn og vísar til þess að sjávarútvegur og fiskeldi komust nokkuð klakklaust í gegnum erfitt ár í fyrra og eru þess albúin að takast á við framtíðina. Meðal ræðumanna er Herra Guðni Th. Jóhannesson forseti Íslands. Við hringdum í Jónas Gest Jónasson meðeiganda Deloitte, sem er einn þeirra sem heldur ræðu, til að fá að vita það helsta og hvað á að ræða. Það styttist í 26. loftslagsráðstefnu Sameinuðu þjóðanna sem hefst nú í lok október í Glasgow, Skotlandi. Sagt hefur verið að ráðstefnan verði úrslitastund fyrir heiminn og nauðsynlegt sé að árangur náist. Við hér í Morgun- og Síðdegisútvarpinu á Rás 2 ætlum því að nota tímann fram að ráðstefnunni til að draga fram hinar ýmsu hliðar á loftslagsumræðunni. Við byrjuðum á að fá til okkar Rafn Helgason, sérfræðing á sviði loftslagsmála hjá Umhverfisstofnun, og Árna Finnsson, formaður Náttúruverndarsamtaka Íslands en Árni er reynslubolti þegar kemur að Loftslagsráðstefnum en Rafn er að fara í fyrsta skiptið. Kynfræðingurinn Sigga Dögg hefur undanfarin ár opnað umræðuna um kynlíf upp á gátt en hún setur unað, jafnrétti, húmor og jákvæðni í aðalhlutverk þegar kemur að kynlífi. Sigga Dögg kom til okkar og fór yfir þessi mál eins og henni einni er lagið. Ert þú með geðveikan mannauð, spyr Silja Björk Björnsdóttir í grein sem birtist bæði á Vísi og kaffið.is. Þar veltir hún því fyrir sér hvort starfsmaður með geðveikindi eigi ekki að fá sömu meðferð og t.d. starfsmaður með sykursýki eða frjókornaofnæmi. Hún segir sig ekki vera verri starfskraft þó hún sé þunglynd. Við fengum Silju Björk til okkar í hljóðverið fyrir norðan til þess að segja okkur betur frá þessu. Og Sævar Helgi Bragason kom til okkar í Vísindahornið í lok þáttar.

Prisen på smågrise er i bund. For 150 kroner kan du få en gris på 30 kilo i topkvalitet - i sommeren lå prisen på 750 kroner. Hvad er forklaringen på de rekordlave priser? Det spørger vi om i dagens Orientering. Fængslerne er i krise, mange betjente lider af PTSD og der bliver stadig flere indsatte. "Vold bag tremmer" er titlen på en dokumentarserie på DR. Første afsnit sendes i aften, og vi tager emnet op. Der er globalt mangel på mikrochips. De små hjerner i computere, smartphones, biler og ufatteligt meget andet elektronik. Også i Danmark er det et problem. Ifølge Dansk Industri, er det 75 procent af de medlemsvirksomheder, der bruger mikrochips, som akut står og mangler dem. Vi taler med en af virksomhederne.

My, my how quickly things change. Continuing with our plan to highlight certain back chats that stick out, we present to you an unedited version of our chat with Peter Madrigal. Who is watching Vanderpump Rules this season? Thoughts? So interesting to revisit this chat with Peter, now unedited, and see just how much things have changed in one short year. When we originally spoke to Peter - Vanderpump Rules OG Peter Madrigal steps Behind The Rope. Back in a simpler time when everyone had their Bravo contracts in place, a mere week ago, Peter sat down with The Rope to tell it all. What does HE think about it ALL? Peter explains exactly how the show was cast way back when and it is not what was expected. Peter is kind enough to entertain the Rope's desires to talk about all of his cast mates. Who changed the most since the beginning of the show? What does he personally think of Jax's marriage? What did he think of this past season and the newbies? Does he think the future of VR should be broken into two shows? How does he feel to be one of the only OGs to actually still work at Sur? What role does he play in helping cast the show as the real manager of Sur? Whose wedding was his favorite? House? Of course we also address the season finale's breaking of the 4th wall and how it felt like a series finale with everyone going their separate ways. The future of Vanderpump Rules? All these and more questions answered in this no holds bar sit down with the OG himself, Mr. Peter Madrigal. @Peter_madrigal @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Bonus Episodes Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by OMAZE - https://omaze.com/velvetrope (Receive 20 Extra Entries When You Enter Code “Velvetrope” Brought to you by ROTHY'S - https://www.rothys.com/velvet ($20 Off Your First Purchase) Merch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

Når du brenner deg eller kjenner på en behagelig varme, er det to ulike reseptorer i huden som sender signaler til hjernen. Dette er blant funnene til en av årets vinnere av Nobelprisen i medisin. Det handler om menneskets grunnleggende opplevelse av verden: hvordan vi kjenner en lett berøring eller bitende kulde. Eller en Chilli. Årets nobelpris i fysikk handler om komplekse systemer, og jordas klima er et slikt. Derfor belønnes skaperne av de første klimamodellene. Som Nobelkomiteen sa: "Klimaforskning handler om velkjent og etablert fysikk" Også har vi kjemiprisen. Den har ført til at Agatha Christies favorittgift - stryknin - nå kan produseres 7000 ganger mer effektivt enn før. Heldigvis er ikke strykninproduksjonen den eneste som drar nytte av de nye verktøyene, kjemien har rett og slett blitt langt mer effektivt, og dermed grønnere. Panelet: Medisin: Jan Bjaalie Fysikk: Anja Røyne Kjemi: Mats Tilset

Welcome back to our chance every day where we get to hangout and talk about traffic and funnels and all of the fun things. Excited to be with you guys here today. It's actually kind of cool be in this whole quarantine thing. Where outside everything looks normal and it's this weird, eerie feeling. But then inside we can hangout and be with our family, our friends, we can go live, we can share thoughts, ideas. I think this has been a really cool time for so many people to start sharpening their saw, and starting to get smarter and better about what they're doing and why their doing it and how they're doing it and all kind of stuff. So I'm excited to be here with you guys today. We're going to be talking more about traffic secrets. Today we're going to be covering the third type of traffic. Yesterday we talked about the first two types of traffic. Traffic that you control, traffic that you earned and then today we're talking about the third type, which is traffic that you... you guys know what it is? Traffic that you own. That's the best kind of traffic. So we're going to be going to that in here a few seconds. But while we're waiting for everybody to jump on and get here, I want to make sure you guys know that we're in the middle of the traffic series book launch, which is kind of fun. We've been selling books like crazy. This is the highest numbering funnel we've done so far. So for my funnel hackers, if you're going through the funnel make sure to buy slowly and watch the process and see what's happening and why it's happening because it's doing really, really well. You can go to trafficsecrets.com. This is it right here. There's the video. In fact, you watch the video, I'm very proud of the video, hopefully you'll learn some stuff just from watching that. You can see the offers, you can buy the book for free, just cover shipping and handling, it's 9.95 shipping in the U.S., a little bit more internationally, but you can go get that there. Scroll down you can see the sales pitch. This is a chance, look at what I'm doing, you guys. I spent two years writing the book and about the same amount of time brainstorming this funnel and getting it live and ready. It is over 20,000 books sold and it's kept a $63 average cart value, which is insane. Especially knowing that a lot of you guys are my funnel hackers. You're like, "I bough the book six times. I want to get everybody's bonuses." With that said, to be able to keep the average cart value that high I would say the real average cart value, if I were to pull out all the duplicates, the average is probably 80 plus dollars, which is insane. Most book funnels are 20 to 30 bucks max. The funnels are awesome, so make sure to go watch it, buy slowly, learn some stuff while you're doing it. You just go to trafficsecrets.com. For those of you that are extra bored, especially if you're bored with your kids, right here is funnelflix.com. And if you go to funnelflix.com, you can get a free premiere week. Which basically you go in there, and you get a bunch of video for free. Including the very first one, which is from, I don't know if you can see it right there, that is Frank Kern... this is Frank Kern right here. He spoke at Funnel Hacking Live. Nobody knew he was coming, we kept it a surprise and he came out and people lost their mind. Frank is one of the original OGs. When I was learning internet marketing, Frank was one of the dudes teaching it. You can actually go and literally go watch his presentation online for free, bunch of other ones as well. Julius, I hear he's got 5,000,000 followers on Instagram. He walks you how he does it, how he did it. You get that one for free. You get one from me for free. Anyway if you go to funnelflix.com you get Funnel Flix premiere week for free. Then if you go over here to trafficsecrets.com, you get Traffic Secrets for free. So anyway, that's what's happening. All right with that said, you guys, we got a full audience between Instagram we're about 160 people, Facebook we're at 155-ish, so we've got 300 people here. We can start this party and get started and it should be fun. Lionel said, "I think I found my ADD community." Yes, welcome to the ADD-nis. All right. Okay, so today we're talking again about Traffic Secrets. If you don't have your free copy of the book, go to trafficsecrets.com. And this is the box set with all the books. If you don't know anything about me, these are the books I've written. Dotcom Secrets is the first book. This is the new updated hardbound version. This is Expert Secrets is the second book. And Traffic Seekers is the third and final book in the trilogy. And Unlock the Secrets is this amazing workbook that goes with all of these books here. It's kind of fun. Anyhoo, let me pull out book number one. All right, the Traffic Secrets book. So here we go, Traffic Secrets. Today we're going to be going into one of the secrets. Brian saying, "How do you get the box set?" The box set is not for sale right now unless after you get the Traffic Secrets book the upsale may or may not be the box set. This is all pre-order, these aren't shipped till May 5th. But the audio books are available today. I spent three days in the studio reading the Traffic Secrets book. It's a seven hour audio, you can go and get that. It's for the order form bump. You can grab that, plug it in and start listening, which is kind of cool. Also, we've got the audio books of the Dotcom Expert Secrets new update as well as part of the sales funnel. If you go through the funnel, you'll see all the cool stuff. So you just got to go to trafficsecrets.com and slowly today go through the funnel and have some fun with it. Reesio said, "How is my quarantine?" It's been good. We're having a good time. I think I'm driving my kids crazy sometimes, they're driving me crazy sometimes, but as a whole, we're doing really good. Thank you for asking. All right, hope you guys are all doing as well, good as well. My job for the next 25 minutes or so is to entertain you, get you excited, inspire you, open your mind to how to get traffic. What you do with traffic, how it all works. I've been doing these live on Instagram and Facebook every day for the last two weeks, so if you missed any of them feel free to go back there. We may or may not also be launching a Traffic Secrets podcast that'll have the recordings of these too. That may be live in the next day or so, I'll let you guys know and then you can start listening in there as well, which will be kind of cool. All right, here we go, Traffic Secrets. So what we covered so far. Section number one is all about your dream customer. Secret One we figure out who's your dream customer. We talked about figuring out and understanding them at a deep level. Figuring out are they moving towards pleasure or away from pain? What's interesting in this market today, I think two weeks ago a majority of customers were moving towards pleasure. Which meant your ads, your advertising is all focused on grabbing people or trying to move towards pleasure. Over the last two weeks, people are in pain and they're now in a state where they're moving away from pain. Looking at that lens, most of our advertising and marketing should be shifting from speaking to them moving towards pleasure to speaking to them moving away from pain. So there's a little hint from Section number one. We also talked about the difference between a searcher and a scroller. What advertising networks people are searching, which ones they're scrolling and how you differentiate your ads and your landing pages and everything based on if they're a searcher or a scroller, the pros and the cons. That was all secret number one. Number two we talked about now you know who they are. Where are they hiding? Where are they congregating? We've got to find those pockets of our dream customers so we can go and target them. We also talked about then who's already congregated and who are our dream 100? And we built the list of our dream 100. After that, secret number three, we talked about hook story offer. How do we throw our hooks in the water to grab their attention and we tell the story to increase perceived value of what it is we're selling them and then how we make them an offer. And secret number four. Yesterday we talked about with your dream 100 how do you work your way in and how do you buy your way in? And that's what brings us today. Today we're talking about secret number five, which is traffic that you own. So I'm going to jump right there, we're going to go through that. This is the best type of traffic of all the types of traffic that are out there. So many things I have to gloss through because this book is super huge and I can't just cover every... make sure you still get the book and read it because there's so many things, like in here, just in the last chapter, I walk through five of our front end funnels. I'll show you the stats, numbers, every single funnel, how it works. I talk about how much you spend on traffic, how much on ads. I give you very detailed numbers. It's like six pages of the numbers of the funnel that you can get inside the book and look at and say, okay, here's the product. How much is it sold for? Here's the order form bump. Here's the commissions, the percentages, here's how it all worked. I breakdown every funnel in great detail. Those are all things I can't do on a live like this that you get inside the book. Okay. Secret number five, traffic that you own. So if you look at the image here, you can see here is the dream 100, right. If you've done this exercise with me over the last couple days, here's Facebook, here's all the people that have already congregated my dream customers on Facebook. Here's Instagram, here's a lot of people that have already congregated in my dream customers Instagram. On Facebook, on YouTube, on Google, we find those people, we have our dream 100 list. Now we're trying to figure out from yesterday how do I work my way in and how do I buy my way into these audiences, okay? Because that's where are traffic's already at, we're just trying to work out way and buy our way in into the audiences. And then from there, this is what this whole secret's about: Traffic v. Yield. So all the time we're getting traffic, our goal's not to get traffic to sell products, our goal is to get traffic where we're either getting traffic that we've earned or traffic we control and we're converting it into traffic that we own. That's the big secret, okay. So, for example, traffic that I earn. If I'm earning traffic, it means I'm going out and I'm working for it, right. I'm getting on podcast interviews, I'm doing Facebook lives with people. I'm getting somebody to promote my product for me. This is stuff I'm not paying for, but I'm earning it, I'm putting in the time and the energy and the effort, okay. Traffic I control is I go to Facebook, right. And I don't own Facebook ads, right? Mark Zuckerberg, he owns all that traffic on Facebook, but he allows me and you to go to him and say, "Hey, I want to control some of that traffic. I will pay you if you let me divert some of that traffic from Facebook over into my funnel," okay? It's the traffic you control. There's traffic that I earn, I'm working my way in. There's traffic that I control, where I'm buying my way in. Now the goal of both those traffic sources is not just to sell a product. This is where most people get it wrong. This is the very shortsightedness of almost all entrepreneurs. They're like, "Oh, cool, I bought traffic from Facebook. I'm going to sell my product." Yes, that's part of the goal, but the bigger goal, the overarching strategy is to convert traffic that you earn and traffic that you control into traffic that you own. When you own traffic, you own your own destiny, right? If Facebook shutdown tomorrow, I'd be okay because I have an email list of, I don't know, one and a half to almost 2,000,000 people. So I own that traffic. Any day I can wake up like, "I want to send traffic to this." I can send an email and, boom, traffic goes there. I launch a new book, I want to send traffic here. Because I own that traffic, I own this ball of traffic, I can send it to this page or this page or that page. I can send it wherever I want because I own that traffic, okay? So all the other things I'm doing, all the other exercises of buying ads and working my way into doing podcast interviews and all those things, the only goal of those things is to convert the traffic that I'm controlling and then buying, or that I'm earning and controlling, into traffic that I own, because then I control my own destiny. For me, for the last few years, I've been working on that. For the last decade and a half I've been building my list, building my following, it's traffic that I own now. Even if Facebook disappears, if Google goes away tomorrow, I'm still going to be in business because I own traffic, okay? And that's the mindset shift of what you guys are all having, that you need to understand that you want to be able to own that traffic, okay? So that's what this whole secret's about, owning traffic. When I first kind of started understanding this, let's see... When I first started understanding this, it was back early in my journey. One of my first mentors was a guy named Mark Joiner. Some of you guys know Mark, he's amazing. He's the one who kept telling me, "Russ, we have to focus on building a list, building a list, that's the secret to internet marketing. Building a list, building a list." And I remember at the time there were all these people that were doing different ways to make money. And I was so grateful that my first mentor told me, "You have to build lists, you have to build lists," because that thing has saved me now for a decade and a half. During the ups and downs of the trials of my business and the safe parts of my business. Having a list has helped me to endure. The people who have email lists right now, are the ones who are going to thrive during this whole crazy recession and depression, whatever ends up happening. I don't even know what's going to happen. But those people are surviving because they're prepared for that, right? It's very important to understand that. Let's see. There's so many things I could share with you guys. Just get the book and read it, it's so good! Anyway. Okay. Oh, there's a story in here, but the story's four pages long. Part of me wants to read it, and part of me is like if I read that I'd lose half of you guys. I'll tell you the gist of the story and I'll read one part of it. So this was the day that I learned about list-building, the day it really got sunk in my head. I was like, "Oh my gosh, I need an email list," right? In fact, I told this story yesterday on an interview with Jim Edwards, it was kind of fun. All right, when I first started learning about this whole game of internet marketing, I started hearing people talk about email list. I remember reading and article online and it was about... sometimes you hear about the gurus and they make $30,000 in a weekend and you think it's scam, right? And the guy's like, "No, it's not a scam. Let me explain how this whole thing works." And he explained, he said, "The gurus, whatever you want to call them, they have an email list of maybe 10,000 people, or 30, or a 100,000 people." He said, "All they do is an email out to a 100,000 people and if they send an email to a 100,000 people and they get 10,000 people who actually go and sign up for the thing," right. "Say you send an email to 100,000 people, 10,000 people open the email, 5,000 click through to the thing, and then 500 of those people actually buy the product and let's say it's a $20 product, you just made 10 grand or 30 grand, whatever the math is," right. And he's just like, "It's just a numbers game." He said, "The reason why these gurus make a ton of money is because they spent the last X amount of time building up these huge email lists, right, traffic that they own." And when I read that I was like, "Oh my gosh," it was the epiphany and all of a sudden I understood." I was like, "I need my own email list." I didn't know how to get an email list. So the first thing I did was I jumped on Mr. Google. I said, "How do you get an email list?" And I started searching around and within a few minutes I found this website. I can't remember the domain exactly, I think it was spam for emailaddresses.com. I was like, "Sweet, that's what I need, spam for email addresses." So I went and there was some DVDs where you could buy a DVD with a 100,000 email addresses, one with 500,000, one with a 1,000,000. I'm like, "Well, if I'm going to get an email list, I want a 1,000,000." So I spent 70 bucks and bought a DVD with a million email addresses on it. I waited for it to get sent to me, I get this thing with 70,000,000 email addresses. I'm like, "I'm going to be rich." I'm doing the math in my head. Send an email to a 1,000,000 people, if I get a 100,000 to open, 10,000 to click, 5,000 to buy the thing times $20. If I could send an email every single day, I'm going to be rich. I'm doing the math in my head, I'm trying to explain to my wife, we'd just gotten married at the time. "You can literally quit your job tomorrow. We are going to be rich. I figured out the secret of internet marketing. This is going to be so easy." So I took this DVD, and back then the way we sent emails was different. It wasn't through an email auto responder, you had to buy desktop software. So I bought the software, I put it on my desktop and I uploaded the DVD with a 100,000,000 people's email addresses. I wrote an email and I remember that night, about to go to bed. And you have to remember this was almost 15 years ago. It was, no, probably 16-17 years ago. Anyway, it was before we have high speed internet, before we had cell phones, things like that. If you remember the internet back then, usually you had one phone line and it was your phone or your modem. So I had to crawl under my desk, unplug the phone and plug in my modem, get online. I remember that night writing an email, clicking send and then telling my wife I was like, "We'll be rich by morning. You can literally quit your job tomorrow." And I remember sitting there watching the email software, boom, one email sent, two emails sent, three, four. I'm like, "Oh, this is amazing!" I go to bed that night and I'm like a kid at Christmas time, laying there in bed thinking about it. Every couple of hours I get out of bed and run in, move the mouse to get my screensaver off and 600 sent, 800 sent, 2000 sent. I'm just freaking out, right? So finally the next morning I wake up, my wife's getting ready for work, I'm getting ready for school. And I sneak back in the room where the computer's at, I look at it. And overnight we'd sent, I think we'd sent 6500 emails or something like that during the night. And I was like, "Dang it, I thought I was going to send a million overnight. It's going way slower than I thought." Then Colette was like, "I need to use the phone." I'm like, "You have to use the phone? You don't understand, we're printing cash right now, we cannot use the phone." She's like, "I have to use the phone. I have to call someone at work." So I crawl under the desk, I go and unplug the modem, I plug back in the phone and as soon as I plug it in, I'm still under the desk, I hear the phone ring, brrg. I get out, I pick up the phone and on the other end was my internet service provider yelling at me and screaming at me and cursing me out. Telling me how many spam complaints that they got in the last four or five hours. They're shutting me down and they're going to potentially file a lawsuit and all this stuff. I just like, oh, crap, and I totally freaked out. Finally, the guy hangs up on me, shuts off my internet. I hang up the phone and Colette's like, "Who's that on the phone?" I'm like, "Uh, nobody. Oh, and by the way, please don't quit today. Just wait it out a couple days." She kind of laughs at me. Anyway, she goes to work and that day I'm kind of bummed out. I'm licking my wounds and I go and I put my backpack on and I'm walking to school. I get to school and I'm super bummed out because I lost internet. I can't even check my email, I've no internet right now. I go into the computer lab at school and I check my emails. I said I felt like, "I wonder if anybody bought anything?" So I logged into my PayPal account like I did many times prior, and every time I logged into PayPal in the past, there's always a big zero on top. How much money did you make? Zero dollars. I'm like, "Ah." And I logged in this time and guess what? It didn't say zero. First time ever, it said 70. I was like, "What?" I was like, "I made 70 bucks." The way I did it apparently was illegal, but I did it, I made 70 bucks. This actually works! And it was the proof I needed. This whole thing actually works. This whole idea of having a list works. I did it the wrong way, but there's got to be a right way to do this. So it started me on this journey of I have to figure out the legitimate way to build the email list because other people are doing it. I got a little taste of it, I made 70 bucks the wrong way so I got to figure out the right way. So I started this journey of I have to learn how to build a list, have to learn how to build the list. That became my obsession for the next decade of my life and it's still an obsession today, which is why I have a big email list, because I focus on it. In fact, every single day we have a company-wide meeting. We call it the Click Funnels Pulse Meeting. And one of the stats we share every single day is how many people joined our list yesterday? That's the number we're looking at. It's a metric, it's a KPI in our company. How many people today joined your list? It was interesting for all of you guys who are watching this, if you're not looking at that metric daily, your list probably isn't growing. I've seen some people who have a business, they'll grow a list and they get 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 people on the list and then they stop and go, "Oh, I got a list." And they send emails to the list and they're making money so their fine. But what happens is that list will start to atrophy over time, get smaller, smaller and eventually your business just disappears and dies. Your focus point is you need to consistently, continually always be building your list. That should be the number one metric. You wake up every morning, how many people joined my list yesterday? How many joined yesterday? I remember the first time I got that, one of my friends, Dagen Smith, he told me that. He asked me, "How many people a day join your email list?" I'm like, "I don't know." He's like, "You don't know that number?" "I mean people are joining, but I don't look at that." He's like, "Dude, what you watch, what you measure grows." And so I was like, "Okay. I'm going to start looking it." I started looking at it. I remember at the time there's probably 60-70 people a day joining my list, and so I started watching it. And what's crazy is I started looking at the numbers every single day, it started making me upset in my head. "Ah, only 70 people." Then your subconscious mind starts looking for ways. "Well, how do I make this bigger? How do I make it bigger?" As I'm sitting there thinking how to make it bigger, new ideas pop in my head. Then I morph from 70 a day to 100 a day to a 150 a day, and 500 a day to a 1,000 a day, to 2,000 a day. And it became the focal point of my business. For all you guys, when you start getting this book, that's what I talk about. All the things you're doing, from traffic you control, the traffic you're buying, the traffic that you're earning, the goal of all that traffic is just to convert into traffic that you own, which is your list. Your list is the key. If you look at, "What's the biggest secret of the Russ Brunson's internet marketing?" Your list is the key. You need to be building your list. That's the big aha, okay? You have to understand that. All the things I'm doing, from Facebook live to videos, to podcast interviews, to buying ads, the goal of all the thing is to build my list. And the key metric, the KPI I look at every single day, the most important one of my business for me, is how many people today joined my list? Okay. So all you guys need to be focusing on that. That's the big thing. Someone said, "What software do you use?" I use this weird software called Click Funnels. Click Funnels builds my list, it does everything. All right. That's the big thing to understand. Okay. So there's my little tangent, the way to understand, it's the traffic that you own, okay? And I told you that story already. When I'm doing all this stuff, when I'm buying ads, when I'm earning traffic, the goal of both of those is to get into traffic that I own, right? So when I'm on a podcast interview, I'm doing a podcast and I'm earning traffic while I'm there and being interviewed. At the end of it what do I say? At the end of it I'm like, "Hey, by the way, I got this cool new book called Traffic Secrets. Go to trafficsecrets.com to get a free copy." People go to trafficsecrets.com, they click on the button, they put in their what? Email address. Then what happens? They join my list. Oh. That's the goal. If I do the podcast interviews, not just do an interview. I do an interview the interview's not like that's okay. Yeah, I want to sell copies of the book, but the only reason I'm trying to sell copies of the book is I want you on my email list because that's the game, okay? Hopefully, that helps you understand that. So all the traffic you're buying, all the traffic your earning is all going into one spot where you can build an email list because that's the secret of internet marketing. If you look at these, some of you guys have already seen this. This is one of my squeeze pages, okay. If you go to marketingsecrets.com/blackbook, this is one. This lead page alone has generated over 300,000 leads for me. 300,000 leads, okay, boom. This is where my book funnels. The goal of it is to get somebody to join the email list. I'm sending people from all these places to spots. You notice that every page I send somebody to, like right now I sent you to trafficsecrets.com. When you go there, guess what happens if you click on the button? You join my list. I send you to funnelsclick.com, you go there you get this free stuff or I give you this bait to go watch Frank Kern's presentation, Julius', and mine, right. It's four hours of free video, but what happens if you watch those videos? You give me your email address. Now you join my list. I'm working my way right now to you guys, right. We'll then buy ads to this video, which I'll be buying my way in, but the goal of all of them is to get you on my email list, right? I've been telling you you got two email lists today. That's my goal. I'm trying to convert all this traffic that I'm earning, right, I'm earning it, right. We've still got 160 viewers on Instagram, we got 185 in Facebook. We'll push these things live over the next two or three weeks. We'll probably get, I don't know, 50 to 100,000 people to watch this video. From that, hopefully, I'll get, I don't know, 20-30,000 people to join my list from it. That's why I'm doing these exercises, okay. That's why we do all this stuff. So I hope you guys understand that. Okay, one more thing I'll talk about list-building, just to give you guys some metrics to make this really tangible for you and then we'll wrap it for today. When I got started, I had one of my friends, who's actually Mike Filsaime, I love Mike. Mike told me, he said, "You should average, on average you should make at least one dollar per month, per name on your email list." And I didn't know if that was high or low. It's actually really low. You should make more than that, but this is a really good baseline, right? So what that means, let's say you got a 100 people on your email list. You should average one dollar per month, per name on your email list. So I got a 100 people on my email list, I should make at least a 100 bucks a month from those people. I got a 1,000 people on my email list, I should be making a 1,000 bucks a month. If I've got 50,000 people on my email list, I should make 50,000 a month and so on and so forth, right? And for you guys who are starting your business, you're growing your company, you're like, "How do I grow my company?" That's the big secret. How many people are on your email list right now? If I ask you and you're I don't know, then you don't have a business. You're goofing around, okay. Engagement on Instagram does not count as an email list, right? The goal of engagement on Instagram is to get people to go to your email list and join your list, right? That's the tangible business that we're in. I remember he told me that, I was like okay. So I started at that point, it was my very first product called Zip Brander and I had it top of my list. I started driving traffic to it. I remember the very first month I got 217 people. Isn't funny you remember some random numbers like that? 217 people joined my email list that very first month. In that month, I think I made $300 in sales. I was like, okay, that's a little more than a one dollar per name. I'm going to keep focusing. I took that money that I made, I reinvested it back into more traffic. I got more people in and in month number two I had 600 people on my list. That month I made like 800 bucks. I was like, uh. So I reinvested that 800 bucks back into ads, I kept doing it, and soon I got to 2,000 people on my list and 1500 people, then 2,000 people on my list. And that number stayed pretty sync. When I had 2,000 people on my list I was making a little over a two grand a month. When I had 5,000 people on my list, I made five grand a month. When I had a 100,000 people on my list I was making a 100 grand. Now I'm at over 1.7, 1.8 million people on my email list, we make more than that per month, right? So those numbers sync. And what's interesting is you get better at this game, you get better communicating with your audience, better making offers, better telling stories. All this I'm teaching you through these books that number will go up. You shouldn't just make a one dollar per name on your email list. You can make five dollars or $10. Sometimes I see local businesses where the list is small, they only have 800 people on their list, 500 people on their list. It's usually because of the relationship, because they're local they're able to make 10, 20, 30 bucks per name per email on their email list, okay? I want to give you that number as a metric. Because if some of you guys are like, "I need to retire." "I want to work from home," I want to do whatever, right? That's the number you should be looking at, right? If you're thinking I need to make six figures a year. Okay, if you had 10,000 people on your email list, you're averaging one dollar per month per name, that's 10 grand a month times 12 months, that's 120,000 a year. If you can focus, and get 10,000 people on your email list, based on the math, you should be making 120,000 bucks a year, your six figures a year. If you're like, I need to make five grand a month to survive, cool, you should be focusing on building a list of 5,000 people. You get a list of 5,000 people, you should, based on the math, if you do it okay, you should be making 5,000 grand a month. If you're I want to make a 1,000,000 bucks. I want to hit two comma club, cool. It's just a math game, right? That means if you want two comma club, you need to focus on getting a 100,000 people on your list, 100,000 people times 12 months is 1.2 million bucks a year. That's the game, you guys. That's what you've got to start to understand. The list is the secret. That's the metric, that's the thing we're all focusing on. So all this traffic stuff we're doing, as much fun as it is, like how do you Facebook ads, and Google ads, and do integration marketing? And how do you do growth hacking? All the things we're talking... as exciting as those things are, and they are, they're pretty amazing. The real secret, the real big aha, is that all the focus point of that is to turn it into traffic that you actually own. And I think tomorrow we're actually going to talk about followup funnels. I'm pretty sure. So tomorrow, we're going to talk about followup funnels. So followup funnels is like now someone's on my list, now what do I do with it? How do you make a dollar per name per month, Russell? Well, you do it by the followup funnel. This is the sequences and tomorrow we're going to go deep into that. But I'll give you guys a hint, just so you know. I was doing a... and I'll show this tomorrow, we'll go deep into this. I was looking at my front end funnels and we did a 30 day snapshot in a window. And in a 30 day window, for every dollar we made on one of our front end funnels, those are the funnels that buy ads too where I push stuff through like this. I'm buying my way, working my way, for every dollar I make in that front end funnel, we made $16.49 in the next 30 days through the followup funnels. These are the emails and messages that are sent to them over the next 30 days. So that's the big secret, you guys. So, again, I will share that with you guys tomorrow. If I can do nothing else, to drill into your brain, say the traffic secret to drill in your brain today, the most important thing you'll be focusing on is traffic that you own. How do you convert all the traffic you're earning, all the traffic you're buying into traffic that own? Because then when the storms come, and they're coming, you're feeling it right now. When the recession hits, when the depressions hit, when Facebook is shutdown by the government, when whatever. The platform you're on, the people are huge on buying and then buying got destroyed and then people have podcasts. Let's say the podcasts disappear. Who knows what it's going to be? But as long as you're focusing all your efforts on one thing, traffic that you own, you'll survive the hard times, okay? I've survived two collapses of the economy, excuse me, one big collapse of the economy, two collapses of my business. I've survived all these things because of one thing, and one thing alone: I have my email list. That's the big secret. You guys got that? That's the big secret. So always have to think about that today. In fact, that should be your goal right now, as you get off this thing, start thinking, okay, how big is my email list today? That's number one. If it's zero people, now's the time to start, okay. But look at it, how big is your email list, that's number one. Then number two, how many people per day are joining it, okay? Again, if that's zero, then that's the next thing, how do I get people every day to do it? Then number three, okay, how do I make that number bigger? What you measure grows. So if you start measuring it, it'll grow, or shrink if you're in weight loss, right? If you're measuring your waist every day, you don't want it to grow, but it'll shrink. But in business you want it to grow. So whatever you measure will grow. So every single day the number you should be looking for is how much did my list grow today? How many leads have I got today? That's what you got to start focusing on, okay. Help you guys to survive the storms or the craziness, that's just as important. So there you guys go. That is the Traffic Secret for today I'm going to share. We had a good turnout today. You guys must be bored out of your minds at home during the quarantine.

Aidi from @whynotfrugal is a wife and mom of three kids currently based in Houston, and she's definitely one of the OGs of the award travel lifestyle. In this episode, Aidi and I discuss some next-level tips for how she and her family have gotten to take quite a few first-class trips around the world, including a detailed breakdown of an incredible trip to Singapore. Aidi also lets us know which of these methods sadly no longer exist, and which ones are still available for you to leverage. Different tools and methods for supercharging your points earnings come and go. I keep a list of some of my favorite tools at https://www.geobreezetravel.com/tools. Some of these let you earn points that you can apply to travel, such as by converting your Rakuten points to Amex points, and some let you earn cashback through Visa gift cards and other store cards. Remember: always be sure to use someone's referral links whenever you sign up for a new app! One of my favorite tools to use for stacking points is the Fluz app. For example, if you're looking to earn more points on excursions, try this stack: buy a Groupon giftcard through Fluz for the exact amount the excursion costs on Groupon. Then, click through Rakuten.com to go to Groupon.com and use the gift card you just bought from Fluz. I've earned almost 20% more cashback on travel excursions or even spa treatments with this trick. Thank you to Fluz for partnering with us on this episode of the Geobreeze Travel Podcast.

This is Russell Brunson welcome back to the party. I'm excited to be here with you guys today and we are going live right now on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube. I think we're all over the place. So appreciate you guys hanging out with me today and I hope you've enjoyed this Traffic Secrets book launch. It's been going on this whole week. I know a lot of you guys are in quarantine right now, and you are bored out of your mind try to figure out what to do. Some of you guys are stressed out beyond all belief. I get it. Some of you guys are like, "This is dumb. Why are we even worrying?" And I get it as well. So there's a lot of chaos right now in the world. And the only thing we can control is our own mindset and things. We're focusing on things we're putting into our brain. And so I keep choosing to try to put my mind focusing on things I can affect things I can change, which really is this is probably one of, if not the best personal development weeks for all of us in the world, which is exciting. So, all right, really quick. Before I jump into reading some more of the book today, it's interesting. We did our ClickFunnels meeting and today we had the highest, excuse me yesterday. So yesterday we had the highest number of people logging to ClickFunnels ever, it's more than double what happens on a normal day, which means this is literally the season of funnel building. Okay guys, you're at home. You got the chance right now to finally create. There's always this excuse like, "Oh, I can't build a funnel because of this, because of this I'm too busy. I got this. I got blah, blah, blah, blah, blah." There's always for some reason, people always have this. We call it the mañana principle like, "Oh, tomorrow mañana tomorrow. I'll do it tomorrow. I'll do it." Okay. What I want to do. I want to suggest something for you guys right now. Okay. I want you to take this mañana principle. Most of us have like, "I'll do the work tomorrow. I'll do the thing tomorrow. I'll do tomorrow," tomorrow, tomorrow. I want you to do this as an exercise it will be really fun. Okay. What you're going to do and is the thing that you need to be doing that you normally put off till mañana. I want you to stop and I want you to do that today. Okay. And then the stressing that you were planning on doing today, stressing out about the coronavirus about food, about toilet paper whatever you're stressing about. I want you to take that stress and I want you to stress about it mañana. We're just shifting. This is an easy shift. Okay. We're taking the stuff right now that we're normally worried about. Okay. And that we're shifting it to mañana and the stuff that we normally are going to do to mañana. The stuff that's actually important about building our life, building our business, building our family. We're going to shift till today. Okay. Is shifting the mañana principle. Okay. If you guys can do that, it's going to be amazing for you. Okay because number one, you're not going to be stressed out because you're going to be stressed like, "I don't have time right now. I'm busy building funnels tomorrow I will worry about the stress." And then today you can get back to work. Okay. And what's cool about that. If you do it today, okay. It's going to be all of Friday all today to be able to work, to be able to create, to be able to read, be able to study, be able to learn every other thing that you've been procrastinating. You really have a chance to finally do it today. Okay. And all the stress that you've been sitting on for the last week, you'll move to tomorrow. You be like, "Worry about it tomorrow." and then ask yourself will you survive today? Is your family going to be okay? You got food for today, sweet worry about tomorrow. Let's get back to work. And then what's going to be cool is tomorrow I'm going to suggest to you the same thing. Move it, till mañana, and get back to work. Okay. So there you go. There's the mañana principle in a way that will actually serve you as opposed to hurting you. But again, we had more than double, as many people log in clickfunnels yesterday than we've ever had. Okay. Which means it's a season right now. It's a season to build funnels. It's a season to build hope season to start preparing and building your foundation because this season is going to pass. Okay. And the people who aren't frozen by fear in the season. Okay. When they come out of it, they're going to have a chance to be able to go and create and do some amazing things. So I want to make sure you guys aren't freezing during the season of fear. Okay, worry about it tomorrow. Mañana right now, get back to work focus on stuff you can control things you can create things you can do because the season will end. And I don't know if it's going to be two weeks from now, two months from now, two years from now, it does not matter. Okay. It's going to end. And the people who have been preparing during the season who have been planting the seeds right now are the ones who reap harvest. So now how to plant seeds. So what that means, two things. Number one, if you haven't got a Traffic Secrets book yet, go and get it. This is the seeds you need to get to the master traffic. Number two, this right here is FunnelFlix. Okay. Now FunnelFlix is an amazing tool. I have licensed, I think there's 2,600 videos on that. Okay. All of the courses I learned from, as I was learning this game, I went to all those people and I was like, "Your courses were the best that I ever went through. Can I license them from you?" And I paid them a small fortune, I think over a million dollars so far in licensing fees because I wanted to be Netflix for entrepreneurs. So we entered the streaming wars. We launched FunnelFlix and it's live. And right now we have a really cool thing for this weekend. It's called the FunnelFlix premier week, where you go to FunnelFlix.com right now and you put your email address in there and you get these four videos. 1, 2, 3, 4, I think each date unlocks one. So you'll get this one immediately. The first one is Frank Kern. If you don't know Frank Kern, he's one of the OGs of internet marketing. We had him speak of funnel hacking live. We didn't tell anybody he was coming. It was top secret. And then in the middle of, we had this whole FunnelFlix presentation. We had him come down and bang on the thing. And it opened up and Frank came out and delivered a message. It was insanely good. And people went nuts. It was like, standing ovation, screaming. It was as close to when a rockstar would feel like in our world, if you can imagine that imagine your biggest rockstar coming out and all the people flip out. That's what happened. And we captured it for you and you can go watch that presentation right now. Well, not right now. Wait til this is over, then watch it this weekend. And then if you like Frank's stuff, I licensed every... No I think almost 13 or 14 Frank's courses almost everything he's ever published is also in FunnelFlix now. So if you are a FunnelFlix member, you can geek out on Frank this weekend and get excited. It's all in there, all his best stuff's in there, which is exciting. So funnelflix.com. So this is trafficsecrets.com. Go get your book, get the audio books, go start listening, getting prepared there. And then over here's funnelflix.com as well. So that's the game plan. All right. You guys ready? Is everything... Is mañana principle in place. You've taken all your stress, your fears. You move it until tomorrow. Worry about it tomorrow. Today, you're focusing on planting seeds for your future. Are you guys cool with that? All right. If you're ready to start planning seeds for future, let's go. So what I'm going to do right now, back to the Traffic Secrets book. This has been so much fun reading this with you guys. So Traffic Secrets book. How many you guys are pumped about getting this book? I know we sold, I don't know, 10,000 the first day. I don't know how many right now, but we're selling tons of these. So I know most CBS have got, if you don't have, for some reason now is the time go to trafficsecrets.com. Okay. So I'm going to repeat. So we've gone through a lot of stuff in the book together. If you've been watching these videos each day, the first day I talked about the preface, preface however you say that all about there's a storm coming. And right now we're literally in the middle of the storm. I wrote this a year and a half ago, this part, and it's crazy that now we're sitting in the eye of the storm. So there you go. I don't know how I could time this any better. So introduction, there's a storm coming we talked about that. Then we talked about, we did two days on secret number one, which was, who is your dream customer? Okay. There's a lot of stuff in this chapter. Things I talked about with you guys figuring out, are your customers trying to move away from pain or towards pleasure, understanding that? And we talked about the difference between the searcher and the scroller and the mindset shift and what they're doing and how we structure things differently based on who they are that was secret number one. Okay. And figured out who is our dream customer. Again, getting to understand them at a deep level. Then secret number two we talked about is now we know who those people are, where are they actually hiding online? Where are they congregating? How can we find them? And we talked about how basically our job then if you look at this picture, here was all about finding where in the world these people are, where are they congregating online? And then from there we got to figure out our hooks, throw in there to grab them and pull them into our funnels, which is cool. All right. And then today we're still in secret number two today, we're moving on to a concept called the dream 100. All right. How many of you guys have heard me talk about dream 100 before I've been preaching this for quite a long time. So hopefully you guys have heard me talk about this more than once someone's asking to turn my camera around. I can't because I'm at home quarantine by myself. So I'm doing this by myself. I can't hold it backwards. I can get my kids come hold it here, but then be like, anyway, be chaos. So, right so again, first step of traffic is knowing who, getting deep understanding who it is you want, who your customers are. Number two, where are they congregating? Where are they hanging out? Right. And then number three is understanding, okay. Who are the people that are already congregating these people. Okay. A lot of times we think that we have to go and create traffic in fact, one of my first mentors, I've had so many great mentors over the years. One of them was a guy named Steven Pierce. And I remember Steven Pierce saying something in an event. He said, "People always think they have to create traffic." He's like, "You don't have to create traffic. Traffic's already there." You just have to figure out where it's at and then you tap into it. And that was one of those big, aha moments for me. Because I was trying to create traffic. Right. And so when I understood that, I was like, "Okay, I'm not going to create traffic. I got to find where they are." And this comes back to, we talked about it yesterday, which is finding these pockets, right. What are the blogs that my dream customers read? What are the Facebook groups? And what are the influencers they follow? What keywords they search for on Google? What blogs they... I think I said, blogs, what podcasts they listen to? I'm trying to figure out where are these pockets of customers? Right. So we got to understand that. And so that's the first step. So then the second step in this process is like, "Well, who's already congregated these people." There's people that have been doing this game for a long time, a lot longer than you, longer than me. Right. And they've already self congregated these people. So I decided to figure out, where are these congregations at? Because if I can figure out where those congregations are at, then I can tap into them. Right? And so that's where we get this concept called the dream 100. Now I learned this originally from a guy named Chet Holmes I had a chance to hang out with Chet, a bunch of times he wrote the book, The Ultimate Sales Machine, which is an amazing book, Chet passed away a few years ago, but someone I've had ton of respect for, actually 10 years ago, Tony Robbins event in Fiji. I was there, me and Chet both spoke and hang out a lot. But in Chet's book, he wrote concept called dream 100. And what the dream 100 is, he talked about, he worked for Charlie Munger, who is… what's his name? Charlie… Warren Buffet's business partner in one of his companies. And Chet was running this magazine. And I guess the time I can't remember, I haven't read all the details in the book, but they were the worst magazine in their industry had almost no advertisers. And they had a database of 2,500 people. And they're trying to message all these people and get to the advertising counsel and he couldn't do it. So Chet came in. He's like, "Hey, this is too hard for us to go off all these people, who are the people in the industry that buy the majority of the ads," we found, it's 30 people, maybe it's a hundred, I don't know. But there's a group of people, small group, right? That buy all the ads in our industry. So he said instead of marketing to all 2,500 or 25,000, or how many people are in there let's just target the ones that have the most amount of money. And so he built up a list and he started doing what he called pigheaded discipline, PHD, where he would start messaging. So every week he'd send them something in the mail. And then two weeks later he'd call them on the phone send something in the mail call them on the phone send something in the mail, call them on the phone, right? The decision makers who could move the needle for him. And he said after six months, I think it was six months, nothing happened. And he was frustrated, but he's got pigheaded discipline. He kept doing it, kept doing it. And within a year within I think seven months he landed his first client. It was Xerox or something crazy, who signed a contract. It was the biggest advertisers they'd ever had. And then next month they just land another one within a year or two years. Again, all the actual details are in here. They landed 30 of their dream, 100. And they went from the worst magazine in the industry to the top. And it was by figuring out who are the people that can drive you the most and creating a marketing campaign directly to them. And it was interesting. And then Chet talked about he wrote a screenplay for a movie and same thing like, "I wrote screenplay. I want it to turn to a movie or something, but I don't know how to do it, I'm not in Hollywood." So he's like... So he bought a, I think it was a time magazine or something that was like Hollywood's top 100 influencers or something. And he was like, "That's my dream, 100." So he took it was directors, producers, writers, whatever. And he took it and he's like, okay, "I'm going to dream 100, these people." So he sent his script to all 100, of these people. Then he called them on the phone and he sent them a gift and they called him. And eventually I think it was LeAnn Rimes called him back, loved the script, got the deal, pitched it to things, sold it to Hollywood. And they ended up making a play out of it, I believe anyway, I don't remember all the details, but that was the dream 100. So I remember reading that in Chet's original book. And then I asked him about it. I'm like, "There's something here, but I don't know what it is." Because I'm selling a book. I can't dream 100 everyone and be like, "Hey, you should buy a copy of my free book." Because it's email@example.com, right? It's not efficient. It would cost me too much. But then I was like, "Wait a minute. There are people on my list or there're people in my world who already have congregated my dream 100." I told you yesterday I got to figure out what are the blogs they're reading? Right. So if I figure out here's the blog, they're reading, there's a 100,000 readers of this blog who are my dream customers, wait, who owns the blog? Who's in charge of that blog? What if I started marketing directly to that person, got to know them and send them gifts and whatever. And if they like it and then they make a blog post about it. I might sell 50 or a hundred or a thousand copies of my book. Right. And I think who are my dream 100, what podcasts they listening to? And they're like, wait, "If someone owns a podcast and my dream customers are listening, what if I market to the person who owns the podcast? What if I got that person to say yes. And also they promoted it to their podcast and I make a thousand sales overnight." Okay. And that was where the concept of the dream 100 was born for us. And so for the last decade of my life is what I've been doing. I've been figuring out who, in fact yesterday, people are like, "Russell, what do you do every day all day?" I spent three hours yesterday on my phone, which is right here. My Instagram folks are watching me live on the device I use. I spent three, almost four hours yesterday contacting my dream 100. That's it, personal messages to all of them. Boom. "Hey, this is Russell." I send a gift. Hey, this is Russell. Hey, this is Russell. Hey, this is Russell. And that's what I did for four hours yesterday, dream 100. But Russell, "I thought you were trying to sell tons of your book, why were you doing Facebook ads?" There's people doing Facebook ads, but I would rather get one person who could spend a hundred thousand dollars… Like Peng Joon right now. You guys probably seen the ads for the book, right? Peng Joon, is spending tons of money right now, buying Facebook ads, promoting my book so I can go and buy more Facebook ads myself. Or I can build a relationship with Peng Joon because of my dream 100. And then he promotes it and he spends a 100,000 own pocket selling the book. That's a much better way to do it. Right. And so for me, this is the phase I'm going, my dream 100. I'm training people to write blog, posts, do podcast interviews and send out emails to the list and all sorts of stuff. Okay. But that's the magical dream 100. So anyway I want you guys to get the book it took me three days to read it, so I can't spend all three days just reading the whole thing, that's why I want you guys to get it. So when you get the book on page 41, this is the little chart I made of the dream 100. It's probably going to be backwards for some of these cameras, but basically I do each platform. So Facebook, Instagram, podcasting, YouTube, excuse me. Email lists, blogging, Google, YouTube, Pinterest. Right. So I put out the categories of each of the different industries here and then going down what I do it's okay. Who on Facebook is already congregated my dream 100? Okay. And so for me, I was like, "Well, okay, Tony Robbins has got 3.2 million fans, Grant Cardone's got, I don't know, 2 million fans. We've got Prince Ea got a billion fans," whatever. And I start making a list of all the people who've already congregated my dream customers. Who are they? Where are they at? Okay. I go to Facebook. I make a list as many as I can find. Okay. And then I might go to Instagram. Who are the influencers, who've already congregated my dream 100. And I go to Instagram. So I, write out their names. Oh, this person, this person, this person start listing out all their names. Then I go to podcasts. Okay. Who are the podcasters who've already congregated my dream 100. I start listing all the names and the podcast people who are the YouTube channels that already congregated my dream 100, who already have a million subscribers. I can go spend the next six years trying to get a million subscribers, or I can go to the person that already got a million subscribers. And if I can do a deal with him or her, have them make a video for me, boom. Now I'm suddenly in front of a million people that fast. Okay. You see how this works. Then who's got the email list in my industry. Who's the bloggers. Okay. And I start making lists of all these different things. And that becomes my dream 100. Okay. And so I'm starting traffic again. Notice this whole book I haven't said a single word about Facebook ads yet. Right? Everyone's like, "On Facebook ads, lets do Google ads." guy comes eventually. That's in section two in the middle, but there's all this foundational stuff. That's so much easier to get traffic. Okay. When Facebook shuts you down, what are you guys going to do? You going to be freaking out? Like, "I don't know what to do." And I'll be like, "I'm just going to call my dream 100. They already have an email list. They already got a blog. They had a podcast. I'll just see if I can go on the podcast." Boom. And we do that with our dream 100. So man, this stuff's so much fun. I could go for years about this. Let me see if I want to talk about anything else today on this or, oh, got to read you guys something. Can I read you a little piece? Are you okay with that? So it's funny how many of you guys know Rachel Hollis? If you don't, okay. Last year her book was the number two selling book in the world. The only one that beat, it was Michelle Obama's book. Okay. She wrote a book called Girl, Wash Your Face. And then Girl, Stop Apologizing this is book number two. And it's funny because I never heard of her. And then I went to this mastermind retreat and I did a list of all the different people. And one of them was a guy named Dave Hollis. Who's Rachel's husband. And I didn't know who he was. And I met him and I messed with my wife that night. I'm like, "Oh, I met this cool guy named Dave Hollis." And she's like, "Dave Hollis is that Rachel's husband." I'm like, "I don't know who's Rachel." And she's like, "Rachel's the biggest thing in the world," anyways so funny. And so had a chance to meet Dave and then got to meet Rachel and really, really cool. But last year we were in Puerto Rico at a mastermind event sitting around the room and everyone's talking about, their things. And it's funny because in this room there's 20 people and half of them are New York Times bestsellers. Half of them got three or four, five New York Times bestselling books. And it's just an intimidating room to be in. Right. And we're all talking and then someone started asking a question about how do they sell books? And everyone's given their two cents, I'm just writing, things a million miles a minute. And then Rachel starts talking and she said something and just boom, drop the mic. So I read to you. She said says recently I was in a mastermind event in Puerto Rico and I had a chance to spend time with Rachel Hollis, the author of the number one New York times bestseller Girl, Wash Your Face at the time she was in the middle of launching her new book. Girl, Stop Apologizing. As I was in the middle of writing this book, I was curious about how she had sold over a million copies of her books. I asked her for the secret to selling that many copies and she told me, "We ask ourselves this question, what are the tribes that my women are already in? What network marketing companies are they in? What Facebook groups, what Instagram channels, what hashtags are they following?" After we identified these things, we tried to figure out who are the tribe owners of these women? Who do we need to become friends with anyone who had over 200,000 followers? We would direct message them, tell them who we were and ask them if we could talk. We started messaging everyone. Our focus was to find the tribes and then figure out the best ways to infiltrate them. And I said the dream 100, she recalled that was exactly what she had done to quickly become one of the bestselling authors of all time, which is crazy. And then I go on again. Quest nutrition, how many of you guys know quest nutrition, quest bars. So Tom Bilyeu is one of the founders of Quest bars. He was also in this mastermind group. And after this I was researching it. How in the world did he build quest to a billion? He sold it for a billion dollars. How did he build that company? I remember watching it explode overnight. And then he cashed out and I found an interview with him on the founder podcast. And it was interesting. He tells the story. He said "We had a very different approach that got a lot of people, excited, not just about the product, but they felt good about the way we treat them. We went old school, researching several hundred health and fitness influencers. Then sending them handwritten letters and free samples. This is all about showing an understanding of what others were trying to achieve. And that quest was interested in helping them connect with their audience. When people are building community, they have a real sense of service to that community. We would send them free product and just say, if you like it, tell your people. And if you hate it, tell them that too." "Not trying to steer people's comments to give us a pretty great recommendation or not trying to steer people's comments gave us a pretty great recommendation. Some didn't like it and said so, but the vast majority loved it and were grateful. We had shown an understanding of who they were and what they were trying to do. So they spread the word." You see what happened? Tom built a billion dollar brand off of what? The dream 100 wasn't Facebook ads. It wasn't Google ads. The dream 100, Rachel Hollis became bestselling author in the world off of what? The dream 100. Okay. That's the concept that in chapter two, you guys understanding who's your dream customer? Where are they congregating? Who is in charge of the congregation? Who's the leader. Who's the person that you can infiltrate? And then you got to get to those people. Right? And it's coming down to building relationships, getting to know them. How can I serve those people? Okay. I did a video on YouTube. In fact, you should all go to YouTube and go to YouTube type in Russell Brunson, Tony Robbins dream 100 and there's a video it's about 10 minutes long of me showing the decade long journey. I did dream 100 Tony Robbins, how I became friends with him, how I became business partners with him, how I got to promote my stuff. It wasn't me just spamming, "Hey promote me Tony." It was me for a year or excuse me a decade serving and building a relationship with him is my dream 100 and getting in and infiltrating that, okay. It's a very powerful, really real strategy. So it's the key though. So that's the next thing you guys is that even if you don't have the book yet, you should get it. It's free. So the only reason why you wouldn't get it is you must hate money or you hate traffic or one of those things, but you cover $10 shipping handle. You can get it, but even if you don't get it for whatever reason, you still know the concept now and understanding that. So what I would recommend doing, see if I can find the page when you get the books on page 41, but you don't need this book to do this. Just go make a graph like this and say, "Okay, who's already congregated my dream customers on Facebook, and start making a list of those names. Who's already congregated my dream. 100 on Instagram, make a list of those names on podcasts, on YouTube, on email, on blogs," and find those people. Those are the existing congregations, right? And when you do that, my goal would be to try to get a hundred people, right? So 10 people, 10 or 20 people on Facebook, 20 people on Instagram, 20 people on podcasts, 20 people get 20 of them 20. All these different platforms have a hundred people. Now there's your dream 100. Now when you have that, that becomes the people you're marketing to those 100 people, right? If I get one of those hundred people, say yes, it can blow up your business. I remember when I did this exercise with the DotCom Secrets book, one of my dream 100 and my podcasting thing was JLD John Lee Dumas, Entrepreneurs on Fire. I never met, excuse me. I never met him yet. Sent him a copy of the book, sent him a dream 100 package, got to know him a little bit, messaged me. He was like, "I love your book. Want to promote it." He had me on podcast. I think the first day he sold like 500 copies of the DotCom Secrets book. Okay. And I came off of one dream 100 package. Right? So if I know, here's a hundred people, these are the people I'm marketing to, I'm serving, I'm getting to know them. I'm building relationships. And I'm going to focus on putting in the time to get to know these people it'll pay off in dividends. Okay. So that's the first step in the traffic secrets process is the dream 100. Getting to understand that when we were launching ClickFunnels, it was interesting because I'm no coder. I don't have any technical ability. So while my business partner, Todd and my business partner at the time, Dylan, while they were coding ClickFunnels, you're wandering Russell, what did you do? You're useless to the equation. I know I can't code. So what did I do? This is what I did. I sat there all night while they're coding and I'm messaging people getting to know them, building relationships. I remember my dream 100, by the time we launched ClickFunnels was dream 328 or something. I don't know how many, but it had grown because I built all these relationships and we launched ClickFunnels and we grew it. And it's crazy now that, ClickFunnels five and a half years ago it started. Today. We have over a 100,000 active customers, 30% of you guys logged in yesterday, which is crazy. So 30,000 plus people logged in yesterday to build a funnel. What's crazy is that the majority of those customers came off of the following of my dream 100 the original dream 100 that I had set up five years ago. And I've been relentlessly getting to know them, building relationships, pursuing them, asking them, promote things, getting them to use ClickFunnels. I've been building free funnels for tons of them. I put in the hard work, the dream 100. And on the back side of that has been a company that does hundreds of millions of dollars a year. So anyway, I hope that helps getting the wheels you had spinning. That's just secret number two, the dream 100. So, all right. We're five or six days in this guys we've gotten through the introduction secret one and secret two has been good so far you learning good stuff. If you like this comment down below, like "That's awesome." If you're like "That was lame Russell, I don't need traffic. I hate traffic," then be like, "That was lame." I don't care.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN is a new project featuring ex-Emarosa (Corsets Are Cages) vocalist Chris Roberts alongside guitarists Chris Wethington & Garrett Harper (Softspoken), and drummer Cody Frain (A Scent Like Wolves). Classifying themselves as “new old-posthardcore” THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN masterfully blend elements of classic post-hardcore with modern metalcore to create a truly unique listening experience that is both familiar and refreshing. Their debut single "Detach: Envenom" was premiered by Revolver Magazine, and has received praise from outlets such as Chorus.fm as being in the same vein as post-hardcore OGs such as Underoath, Saosin, and Thrice. "This is really just a collective representation of the truest part of each of us," vocalist Chris Roberts explains. From the lyrics that are as raw as they are poetic, to the blend of aggressive and passionate vocal delivery, to the instrumentation that is equal parts precision and chaos - THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN are masterful in their creation of a sonic soundscape that enraptures the listener. "The music that we make is the four of us taking the emotions that we have, whatever they may be, and turning them into something healing. It's cathartic," Roberts expands, "and it's surreal to be a part of it." Author Credit: Spotify – The Difference Between Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Even for me who has done literally hundreds and hundreds of webinars, sometimes they don't work. What are the adjustments we make to make it work better next time? Hit me up on IG! @russellbrunson Text Me! 208-231-3797 Join my newsletter at marketingsecrets.com ClubHouseWithRussell.com ---Transcript--- Hey. What's up, everybody? This is Russell Brunson. Welcome back to the Marketing Secrets podcast. Today I'm going to tell you about my most recent failure, that happened yesterday. All right, everybody. So usually, on most things you have a chance to hear the highlight reel. Normally I will tell you a story about how like, "Oh, five years ago, six years ago, I did a webinar and it bombed, and now I'm amazing." But rarely do you get to hear me talk about my failures in the midst of the failures, when I'm still licking my wounds and trying to figure it all out. So, that's our mood today. I hope you guys don't mind. It's actually interesting. A lot of you have heard my story about 10X, where I did $3.2 million in 90 minutes. What a lot of you don't know is like two months prior to that, I had spoken at an event, and I had tweaked my pitch a little bit. I did the pitch in a little small audience, and it completely bombed. And you know, two and a half months later I did it at 10X and killed it. And I told the story about 10X and I killed it because that's the story that's fun to tell, but I didn't tell the story about how two months earlier, I did a webinar to a group of people and completely bombed. Or not a webinar. Like a live event. That's the thing about this game. There's always the ebbs and the flows, the ups and the downs. I've been reading a new book by Tim... Tim something. Dang it. I should know this. Tim Grover. Tim Glover. Something. Anyway, it's called Winning. He wrote one called Relentless, which was good, but Winning is way better. Talking about winning in there. He's like, "Winning is unforgiving. Winning doesn't care about you. Winning, there's ups and the downs, and it's just... " Anyway, so today, or after yesterday I'm like I feel like winning is beating me up a little bit. But it's okay, because it's how you learn. And so, but I'm just like everybody else. Like yesterday... And I did a webinar yesterday, or a podcast yesterday, so if you listen to the last podcast, you'll hear me talk a little about this. But I was excited. We bought a new company. We spent multiple eight figures on the new company, so it wasn't small, and we were doing a webinar to the customer list to sell ClickFunnels. Because the whole purpose of buying this company was to use it as a front end to hopefully people in ClickFunnels, right? And so, I'm all excited because we're going to turn these people into ClickFunnels members. It's going to be amazing. Anyway, so I do this webinar. And first off, I'm like, "Dude. Well, I'm on fire. Things are feeling good." And then I look over at the comments, because at a couple parts I played little videos. So the videos, I looked at the comments, and oh my gosh. These people, my new customers that I just spent multiple eight figures on, are not happy. They are pissed. They don't like the webinar. They don't like the beat. They think I talk too fast. They think that this is like an MLM pitch. They think all of the things. And I start reading these things by a whole bunch of people, and John on my team runs in. He's like, "The comments are going south." I'm like, "Yeah. I don't know what to do." I'm doing a webinar. The whole bunch of people, I've got to keep going. And so I get back on. I do the whole webinar. And afterwards, you know. What I was expecting to be a high six figure day, maybe seven figure day, ended up being a five figure. A low five figure day. I was like, "Oh, man. That was not good." Because I've got to pay back multiple eight figures. I needed this to convert better than it did. So at first I was just like, the initial was just like anger, and then depression. These are all in the moment, right? And then it's just like I want to be depressed. I want to go hide. I just want to quit. But then I'm like, "I can't quit. I need to pay back the loan that we took out for this company. I've got to figure this out." Right? So after being kind of bummed for a little bit, then it was like, "Okay. I've got to figure this out." So after about an hour of me moping and wanting just to quit and run and hide in a hole and everything... Because it's weird. I don't know about you guys, but there's so many emotions. I'm not sure if you saw the 10X documentary. If not, I think it's 10xdocumentary.com. We did a whole documentary on this. But I spoke at the first 10X. We had $3.2 million in sales. The next 10X was in a stadium. It was three times as big. 35,000 people. Everyone thought I was going to make a billion dollars, and I bombed at it. We have a whole documentary documenting the bomb. But the thing for me is it's hard for a couple reasons. Number one is like I always want people on my team to feel the energy of what we're doing. Right? Because the more excited they are, they're more excited about their jobs and what we're doing. And so, leading this webinar, we had 7,500 people register, and we're talking to them and getting them excited. And the day of the webinar I message them, "It's webinar day. It's going to be so much fun." Like we're pumped and excited, and the webinar is happening. And then when it doesn't happen, partially it's like, "Oh, I feel like I let all of them down. Right?" Because the 10X thing, if you watch the documentary, I felt the same way. I felt like I let all these people down. We flew all these people in, and everyone was excited to see this thing, and it didn't happen. And so, like ugh. Partially it's me licking my wounds, because I felt like I let everybody down. The second half for me is just like embarrassing. Right? I'm a performer. I'm an athlete. I'm an entrepreneur. I step up, I perform. And when I step up and don't perform, it's embarrassing. Right? One of my friends, he's a UFC fighter. He fought a big fight. He's in the top four or five. This is just like a month ago. Two or three weeks ago, actually. And he went out there and he lost in the first round. He got tapped out. And he went to Instagram instantly afterwards and posted. He's like, "I'm embarrassed." That's how I feel. It's like it's embarrassing. Just embarrassing. Even my wife. I get home, and Colette's like, "How'd it go?" And I'm like, "Uh, I just want to crawl in a hole and hide." So, I'm telling you these things for a couple reasons. Number one, I want you to know that I go through it as well. Because I'm sure you guys go through this too, right? Where you're expecting this, and then this comes in and you're frustrated or depressed or angry. All of the emotions come in, right? So I wanted to share with you, hopefully to help you just understand that even me, at this level in the game for me, I still go through that. I'm going through it right now, like in the middle of it. In the middle of being embarrassed and being frustrated. Like I didn't even want to go to the office today. I just want to sit at home and watch movies and eat ice cream. That sounds good, actually. Maybe I will do that. Just kidding. Well, I'm not completely ruling it out yet, but anyway. But then the second half is where the lesson is. Because after licking my wounds and being depressed and being embarrassed, and all the emotions that come with that, then I was like, "Well, I've got a job to do." Right? And wrestling is the same way. I lose a match, be frustrated, embarrassed, angry, all the things, and then it's like, "Well, I've got to come back and win this tournament." Or, you know. Placed third in this tournament. "I've got to come back and compete in the next tournament. I've got to come back and like... " So now it's like what are the adjustments I make? I'm like, "Okay. Well, the webinar didn't work, so I'm not going to go set out 500 replay emails, because it didn't work, and so it's not worth the effort. Right? So we're calling an audible. We're shifting that." Number two, it's like, "Okay. We misunderstood our audience." Right? The audience who I thought they were were definitely not who they were, so who is the audience? I've got to figure this out. Like Danny Kennedy 101, message to market match. My message did not match the market, right? So I've got to figure this out. In fact, when we lost ClickFunnels the first five times, it was an interesting thing. Same thing. The first five launches of ClickFunnels failed, failed, failed, failed, failed. And number six is when it hit, because I'd figured out the message to market match. What is the message that this market needs to buy the product? So I realized I had a message to market mismatch. So the first question is, who is the actual market? So we started digging through the data, and like who are they. I assumed they were this. They're not. So, who are they? And I figured that out. Okay, now what is the purpose? Why are they buying this product? Why did they come into this room? Why in this ecosystem? What's the reasoning they had? Okay, now we know that. Now the mechanism. I just talked about getting from zero to a million bucks. First off is like you've got to figure out who is it you're selling, then you start figuring out what is it you're actually selling, and then how you're selling it. The what and the how, right? And so, I know the what's ClickFunnels. It's like it has to be that. That's the whole purpose, right? So I know who now. The who, I misunderstood the who. Number two is like what? Well, I'm still selling the same what. So, the last one is how. What is the mechanism? What's the thing that we're using to sell? Right? And I thought that the webinar was going to be the thing to sell everybody. Now that I quickly figured out, okay, the webinar's not the thing. Okay, well what is the thing? How am I going to sell people this product? I'm like, well they just bought... I'm looking at what the product they just purchased, which is video creation software that helps make doodle videos and things like that, right? So it's like, okay, this is the mechanism that they bought, right? They're buying software that helps them do this, so I need to use that same mechanism to convert them. So, right now I am in the process. Within an hour of me bombing the webinar, I had hired a writer to start on this process. But now we're working on a Video Sales Letter for my OGs. We call them VSLs, for those who are newer. It's called a Video Sales Letter, VSL. And we're going to hand sketch out the VSL. So, someone comes in. They bought software that does VSLs. I'm going to have them hand sketch out a VSL. We're going to have them surveying the VSL to figure out which audience they are, and then the VSL will change on the fly, depending on who they are. So if, "This person is this market or this market or this market or this," who they are, it will speak specifically to that who, and bridge the gap on why they now need ClickFunnels. So that is the second test, and that test may bomb. I may go and spend a month trying to build this thing out, paying to hand do all the videos, all of the thing, and it may completely bomb. But that's the game, right? It's trying and failing, trying and failing. But it comes back to understanding it's the core things, right? Understanding, okay, who is the market? Right? The market to message match. Who is the market? What's the message you need to actually convert that, and keep tweaking that and change that until you figure it out. ClickFunnels, I failed five times. Five launches before we hit it. And I could have easily failed on the first or the second or the third or the fourth or the fifth, but I didn't, luckily. Thank heavens. Woo hoo. Otherwise most of you guys wouldn't even be here. And I kept working until we figured it out. Three weeks before... Or two weeks. Whatever it was. A month ago. A month before the 10X event, I tried my presentation, and I flopped. I tweaked the market to method match, tweaked those things, and then a month later, whatever it was, at 10X, boom. $3.2 million in sales. Right? So, it's our ability to look at the failures, lick our wounds quickly, and then make the adjustments that are the key to winning this game. Okay? Because man, I don't care what level you are. I don't care if you do this for 20 years, like I had. I don't care if you've done that webinar 150 times live, and you know exactly what words to say in order to get people to buy. If it fails, sometimes it does, and you've got to come back and figure out what are the adjustments. My buddy who's a UFC fighter, right? Lost in the match. He's going to come back and look at the adjustments. What are the adjustments he's got to make? I think that's where a lot of people, they fail. It's that they failed, and then they think that they're a failure, as opposed to like, "I failed. Crap. That method didn't work, but I'm stubborn, and I've got pigheadedness. I'm going to keep trying and keep trying and keep trying." And for me with ClickFunnels, six times, we got it. Gave this offer. It may even take six times. Maybe eight, maybe 10, maybe 15, maybe 30. But I have to make it work, right? And the same thing's got to be true for you. Okay? If it hasn't worked yet, all right. That's okay. Let's get back to the drawing board, and you've got to think. Did I mess up on the message? Is the market wrong? What do I got to tweak? And keep doing it until you've figured out the method that's going to work for that audience. So, anyway. I hope that helps. You guys are hearing me talk about it in the midst of the pain, as opposed to later. They always say in vulnerability, like show your scars but not your open wounds, but I've got an open wound. There it is. I just dumped some salt on it to embarrass myself in front of you guys even more, because that's how much I love you guys. But hopefully it gives you some understanding in some of the things you need to be able to lick your wounds and get back up and keep trying, because it's going to happen. It happened to me. It's going to happen to you. It's going to happen to other people. But the ones who win are the ones who are able to sit in the frustration of the moment for a moment. Because as annoying as it is, it feels good to be like, "Duh," and letting that pain just kind of writhe inside of you. You know, it's like someone stabbing you and turning the knife, twisting the knife. It's like I want to feel that pain, so I can be angry enough and frustrated enough to do the work to figure it out. Because if you're like, "Oh, I failed. Whatever. You know, win some, lose some," and keep moving on, you're not going to be successful. I want to sit in that pain for a little bit, so I can be like, "Ah, I'm so angry. I'm so embarrassed. I'm so frustrated." Like all of the things, and twisting that knife, because that's what gets you to be like, "Okay. I've got to change this. I've got to figure something out." Right? And that's what gives you the fuel you need to make the adjustments and to change, right? I mean, losing. I lose a wrestling match, that pain and that frustration, that embarrassment, those things are the things that drive me now to get back in the gym and to figure things out. And as an entrepreneur, the same thing. You bomb a campaign. All right. Let it hurt. Feel it. Okay, now you feel that? That sucks, right? Okay, now let's get back to work and let's fix this thing. And that's kind of the way you guys got to be looking at. That's the way I'm looking at it, right? The annoyance and the pain of me bombing on this thing is the fuel that I need to fix it, and I'm excited now to fix it. Still upset, still frustrated, still have that pain in my gut from failing, but that's okay. Again, that's the thing that's going to drive me through figuring it out. And we're going to figure it out. And when I figure it out I'll share it with you guys, because I have to figure it out. It's just not like, "Oh, that'd be nice." It's like, "No, I'm multiple eight figures in the hole right now in this company. We've got to figure out how to turn it around." And I will. We'll figure it out. But this is my mindset. This is how I'm doing. These are the things I'm looking at. Okay? What was the market? What did I screw up on? Right? What's the message? Where did I screw up there? Okay, what am I selling, and how am I selling it? What are the methodologies? What do I got to tweak? What do I got to change? And those things put together is how I win this game. So just remember, you guys. It's a game. Don't let it stress you out. Don't let it keep you up at nights. But realize it's a game that you're playing. If you want to win, you've got to be able to move, to adjust, and yeah. So, there you go. I appreciate you guys. Thank you for listening. If you enjoyed this episode and learned something, please share it. Let people know. That's the best thing you could do for me, is tell someone. Like, "Dude, go listen to Russell's podcast this week." Or if you hate it, then don't. That's cool, too. I get it. I'm not going to be everyone's cup of tea, as they say, which is totally fine by me. So for my people, you'll hear my voice, and hopefully this will help you. So thanks again for listening, and I'll talk to you guys all again soon. Bye, everybody.
