Do you believe that using Affirmations can make an actual difference in your success?
If you do, great, read on!
If you are rolling your eyes right now thinking affirmations are ‘woo woo’ bs, I get it because that’s how I used to think too!
But, trust me, give this a read because I’ll break down how and why I changed my mind on them and its made a massive impact on my success.
First of all, what are ‘affirmations’?
“Affirmations are positive statements or phrases that are used to help individuals overcome negative self-talk or limiting beliefs. They are often repeated to oneself, either silently or aloud, as a way to reprogram the subconscious mind and promote a more positive outlook and mindset.
Affirmations can be used to focus on specific areas of life such as relationships, career, health, and personal development, and can help individuals to overcome obstacles, improve self-esteem, and achieve their goals. They are typically written in...
There are people searching to find you and saying, ‘Take my money’!!!!
But are you putting yourself in a position to ‘be found’? More on this in a sec, but let me tell you why this is important:
In the mid-2000s I was at the point of bankruptcy when sh*t hit the fan for me. I had accrued almost $100k in mostly credit card debt because of poor lifestyle choices and bad investments.
It was a shameful moment when I looked in the mirror and realized what I had gotten myself into. But it was also the moment when I took 100% ownership of the mistakes I had made and commit to paying it all off, even if it took me the rest of my life.
Over the next year, I created my first online business and was able to pay ALL of it off within a year. Want to know how I did it?
I created my first online business and used SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to rank in the first 3 spots on Google. I set up accounts with...
Just wanted to drop you a little ‘nugget’ of the week from my sales arsenal.
I want to share with you 2 open ended questions that I love asking my clients or potential clients. They are simple questions that build trust and really set you off on the best foot and prepare you for a great relationship.
This can be done with existing clients or in the discovery phase.
I want you to ask them about their previous experience with working with anyone that did something similar to you. For example, if you are a coach you would say:
“When working with a coach in the past, what were some of the things you like about working with them?”
Try and open them up by saying ‘tell me more about that’ and you’ll be able to find a lot about how they like to be worked with. Follow it up by:
“What are some things you disliked about working with them?”
This will help you stay ahead of things...
We live in a day where we get a lot of instant gratification, seems like everything is 'on demand' except when it comes to building our business or growing our followings.
Being an entrepreneur or content creator can test our patience because we want results right now. On top of that there are no shortage of marketers always promising the quick in easy path.
Its easy to compare yourself to people who 'appear' to be crushing it online, and that can make us feel like we aren't succeeding or that we are doing it all wrong.
I want to remind you that some of the biggest names in the digital entrepreneurship space; people like Gary V, Amy Porterfield, Tony Robbins, John Lee Dumas, Brendan Burchard, Rich Roll, Even Carmichael (and the list goes on) all were years in the making and not overnight successes.
We only see the tip of the iceberg and don't realize all the years that went into what we see now. Remember if you are feeling like 'this is taking so long' or...
Want to know how to upgrade your wealth identity and money mindset?
I've got an awesome training coming your way from a very special person!
The other day I had a chat with my friend Hana Dhanji, who is not just a mindset coach, but one who uses NPL, psychology and human behavior to help Wall Street traders master their emotions under high pressure situations.
Hana has an incredible story. She grew up in absolute poverty but her mother fought to get her out of the country and help her break the generational cycles and give her a chance at thriving in life.
She worked her way through insurmountable obstacles to get her law degree, then she travelled the world and worked in Geneva, Dubai, London, New York City and Toronto.
But then she realized she had been chasing a lifestyle that she didn't even want, and got off the dopamine treadmill to do what she really loves.
I've interviewed her 2 times in the past, the first was before I had a podcast and she...
𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 '𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙥𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚'.
You've all heard this phrase 'You are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with.'
Its a great phrase but it's not exactly true. You are the average of everything that comes into your proximity (your sphere).
You could have 20 incredible friends but if you have just one toxic person in your sphere, they will have an impact on you. Just like a crystal clear glass of water with a drop of black dye. You won't see much if its just one drop but there will be a very small tint.
𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙙𝙧𝙤𝙥𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙚 𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙙.
Gossip and drama.
Negativity-fueled media and news sources.
Toxic work environments.
People who constantly criticize or judge others.
Negative-minded friends or family members.
Environments that trigger anxiety or stress.
For most people it would be completely difficult to eliminate all of these, but you can always...
Do you want to know how to be better than 95% of professional sales people out there, I’m talking about people who specifically do sales as their sole source of income?
It’s not hard and I’m going to tell you how to do this in this email.
The past few weeks I've gotten so many sale pitches that missed the mark.
Want to know what’s missing in all of these?
This will shock you when you hear the answer because it’s so basic.
None of these guys took the time to find out ‘what’ it is that I want, they just go into the selling.
They never asked what I wanted. And the crazy thing is, I have money that I’m willing to hand over if they can help me with what I need.
On some of them, I even told them what I wanted and they completely ignored me and tried again to sell me on what it is that they wanted to sell me.
Recently I got asked to participate in a sales role play where...
Is it bad or good to give away a lot of stuff for free?
By that I mean, doing free trainings, free coaching, free resources?
Will you be discounting your worth when you give out free stuff?
Will you attract ‘freebie seekers’ that will never pay?
If I give too much away, won’t it be hard for me to charge people?
Won’t I be giving away all of my secrets?
In my experience: “the more I give away, the more that comes my way”.
If you know me I’m a nerd about abundance and any worries about giving aways stuff for free comes from a scarcity mindset, let’s blow up some of these limiting beliefs:
Freebie seekers – yes, there are those people who will resist paying for anything. But why should I not try to help them? The truth is, the people who are unwilling to pay for anything end up hurting themselves the most because they try to figure out everything on their own....
Ah that feeling of anxiety when you mess up something online.
The other day I blasted out an email without sending myself a test email, breaking one of my own rules and then after it goes out to +2k people I realize that I forgot to remove the headline in the template that says:
“Paying for coaching is a waste of time”
I’m sure some of my recipients were like…..this makes no sense? Well, that’s what happened, I went too fast and didn’t remove a headline from an email template that I set up.
If you are doing business online its probably happened to you, if not, it will, but I thought I’d turn this into a fun blog post and share some stories and a few tips on how to recover from an online mistake.
I'm talking about a social media blunder, sending out an incorrect link to an online event, email error or other forms of digital mishaps.
I’ve been locked out of my Zoom account 2 minutes...
Hello my friends!
Today I wanted to share an easy way that you can make it easier for your clients to do business with you: by removing barriers for them.
They say if you are just starting a workout routine, the easiest way to get in the habit of going to the gym is to get all your stuff ready the night before so you can just grab and go.
Same with prepping your meals for the week, its so much easier to eat healthy if you have planned ahead and prepared all of your meals ahead of time.
When you do this, you are removing friction from the habits that you are looking to build.
You can do the same for your clients, by removing as many steps or barriers as you can.
Here’s a few ideas on how to remove friction and barriers to doing business:
Doing business online: If you are doing business online, make sure your checkout pages and email opt in pages have as few form fields as possible.
For every data field that you add, the more likely the client will abandon that page. On your...
