Last week I dropped part one of ‘Bad advice from the Gurus), check it out here!
This is part 2:
‘Quit your job and go all in!’
Hold on for a sec, before you quit your job, understand this:
The coaching and marketing gurus want you to hate your job.
They want to sell you the coaching dream, and they want you to buy their high ticket offers.
In marketing this is what we call ‘throwing stones at the bad guys.’
Politicians do this all the time. They leverage people’s emotions and create polarization.
I often see people who jump in without the proper business or marketing foundations, thinking those 10k months are right around the corner, and so pumped to be changing lives.
But they have severed their cash flow and then go into scarcity mode, with pressure amplifying and self-doubt growing.
Eventually the pressure is so much they are broken and feel like...
“Charge your worth”
“It’s not about the money”
“Raise your prices”
“Go high ticket”
Advice from the Gurus that often leaves coaches frustrated and desperate for sales month after month.
I've seen new coaches walk over money and clients because they've been shamed into charging high rates without creating the market to sustain it.
These same Guru’s usually have large followings and a high degree of social proof that allows them to do this much easier than a new or intermediate player in the game.
I've also seen a 2nd grade teacher close in on 7 figures with a $99 offer using the right strategies.
Yes, charge your worth, charge high ticket, but only after you have earned that right.
If you don’t have the big name, the big podcast, big Instagram account then:
1 – Work your way up in both pricing and confidence.
2 – Build up your...
I’m putting together a LIVE 5-day challenge called the “LinkedIn ATM Machine 5-day Challenge” where I’ll be showing you exactly how my students are turning their LinkedIn profile into a client acquisition system.
AND I’m so confident we can help, that I’m giving away everything I know at NO-COST inside of this 5-day challenge when it comes to signing up high quality, high value and high ticket clients.
Take one of my students, Neshe for example - Within one month of working with me, she closed a $30k coaching/consulting client, then went on to close several more using my Leveraging LinkedIn strategy. She is now helping corporate clients make a bigger impact in their communities through her consulting work.
LinkedIn is seriously one of the most underrated and untapped traffic sources I’ve been using for years, and here’s why…
Facebook and instagram purposefully throttle your reach, making...
In 2021, I thought it would be a good idea to create a vision board because it had been so long since I had made one.
If you know me, I’ll try anything (and hopefully without judgment).
So I put a bunch of shit on there (mostly things that I wanted since that’s what I was told to do in the early 2000’s when it came to vision boards).
But after I made it I realized I no longer wanted ‘things’ as much as it was ‘who I wanted to become’.
Anyway I did put Marketing Legend and Entrepreneur Amy Porterfield on my vision board, 6 months before I even started podcast!
She is probably the number 1 person (up there with Gary Vee) that I look up to when it comes to entrepreneurship!
This week I got the amazing opportunity to interview her and it was fun telling her that!
The episode just dropped and its packed with goodness!
We talk about:
How she worked for Tony Robbins for 7 years...
I've got 3 gifts for you, especially if you are a
2) digital entrepreneur or
3) want to level up your badassery!
Ok the next four weeks I’m going to be dropping some serious value. August I’ve got some serious nuggets coming your way so PLEASE pay attention to the weekly emails I’ll be sending in the next few weeks. Join my email list here!!
#1 – Guess who will be on my podcast next week but also be offering a free live training to help you get your monetizable ‘offer’ dialed in?
Let me give you a 3 hints:
She made $8 million in a 10-day enrollment period (and she’s repeatedly had $8 figure launches).
She used to work for Tony Robbins before launching her 8 figure business (no, this did not happen overnight and that’s what well be talking about on my podcast).
She is one of the top online marketing experts in the digital space and helped create hundreds of 6 and 7 figure...
The other day, one of my podcast listeners sent me this message:
Simon, how long did it take you to get used to cold showers?
You encouraged me to try them.
And what did you experience?
I REALLY had to step out of my comfort zone for this one. I’m addicted to burning hot water. And that’s a really bad habit.
So, what are the benefits? How have you benefited from them?
So far, I find that they wake me up.
I thought this would be a great topic for my podcast, it’s something that I talk about all the time when I discuss my morning routine but I realized that I had never actually done a podcast episode on the power of cold showers.
In this episode called “Do THIS for 3 Minutes A Day to Strengthen Your Mind & Body” I talk about the benefits of cold showers.
There are 7 benefits that I list and I go into detail on this 20 minute episode and if you aren’t already doing them, give...
Get ready to have your minds blown.
You’ve heard people say “I have to see it to believe it”. And if you know me, you know I’ll say, you have to believe it before you can see it.
Back in the 1800’s, William Gladstone, a former Prime Minister of Britain noticed that in the Odyssey, Homer described the ocean as dark red or wine red and not blue.
Not too long after that, a researcher started studying languages of different cultures that were geographically isolated, also had no mention of the color blue.
Yet the sky and the ocean are both blue.
Eventually these cultures started describing blue at around the same time in history. He also noticed patterns in their language describing other colors such as red, purple and green around the same time.
Check this out -> The Himba Tribe in Nambia still has no mention of the color blue in their language.
So in 2015 they did a vision...
We usually think of gratitude as 'I'm thankful for some (thing) that I've been given, accomplished or stumbled across'.
Where it gets really cool is that you don't need a (thing) to be grateful for, you can just BE grateful.
𝙃𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙮, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙝𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙤 𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙪𝙡:
#1 Gratitude is a feeling, it comes from a chemical in your body called serotonin and is triggered by a thought (not a thing).
#2 Thinking a certain way, over and over, creates a pattern inside of your mind (neurons that fire together, wire together). The more you think about gratitude, the easier it is to feel good and see the world in a different way.
#3 When you focus on gratitude, it becomes important to your RAS (Reticular activating system).
Your RAS is the filter of your subconscious mind and feeds your conscious mind with what it deems as important to you and blocks what is not.
This is why they say 'what you focus on expands'.
So the more you practice gratitude, the better you feel, and the more you wire your mind...
Limitless. Unstoppable. Absolutely Unchained.
To become so, you don't need to add much, but you do need to let go of anything that is filtering you, holding you back, watering you down.
Forward motion isn't always about stepping on the gas, but letting go of what is weight you down. Become like a Ferrari, become more aerodynamic and slice through the wind.
The processing power of your mind is absolutely incredible, you literally have a super computer between your two ears.
Did you ever see the movie Limitless with Bradley Cooper?
It was about a guy who was 'just getting by' day to day, struggling and not thriving.
He comes across an experimental drug that allows him to unlock the 90% of his mind that he wasn't using.
He becomes smarter, more mentally agile, thinking out of the box, seeing opportunities that he didn't see before.
What would it be like if you could tap into a higher level of your mindset and do the same?
That power inside of your mind is there for you, on...
I’m definitely feeling it. Maybe you are feeling it too.
Some days I’m like WTF am I doing?
Full time sales role, 2 podcast episodes per week, 3 kids, sleep, working out,8 meditating, creating content, coaching +100 members in my communities.
Oh, and then there are the messages: Slack. Facebook Messenger. IG. LinkedIn. Text. Microsoft Teams. Work Email. Gmail. Business Gmail. What’s app.
Seriously, WTF am I doing?
Ok let’s break this down and I’ll show you how I handle overwhelm.
There are physical and mental limits to our bandwidth.
Physical is time and activity (the doing), and that is finite and very defined (you can only do so much).
The other part of it is mental, and this is a very big part of it, but also very subjective.
Being the Mindset Hacker, I’m always intrigued with how much we can bend things like time, abundance, memory,...
