How I'm Getting A Free Car (For My Wife) And You Can Too

FREE CAR ANYONE?

I remember reading a book a long time ago from Rob Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, and he said: 

“If I want to buy a new Ferrari, then I don’t go work for the money or take it out of my savings, I create an asset that pays for the Ferrari.” 

The point he was referring to, was to not trade time for money but use your mindset an asset that in turn creates money. 

I am not at the point where I’ve created an asset just to pay for a Ferrari, but I am at the point where I can replace my wife’s 2010 Toyota Rav4 with her dream car….and do it without trading my time for it. 

In my Audio Masterclass 9 Ways To Monetize LinkedIn in 2022; one of the 9 ways I mention is making money from ‘affiliate’ commissions by referring products or services that you LOVE. 

One of my favorite apps to recommend to coaches and course creators, is Kajabi.

Why Spending On Coaching Is A Waste Of Money

Are you thinking "Simon, why the hell are you saying that coaching is a waste of money? Don't you support coaches and don't you coach"?

I didn't say that coaching was a waste of money. 

I said spending money on coaching was a waste of money. 

The definition of spending is: to use up, to consume wastefully, to squander. 

Unfortunately the truth is a lot of people look at hiring a coach as spending, and even worse, they act like it. 

They say that only 3% of digital courses (without a live component) are completed.

Far too few people even give themselves the gift of coaching or learning after they leave school.

Then there are those that do decide to further their knowledge and buy a course but either don't finish (gain the knowledge) or don't take action with the knowledge in order to gain results. 

The equation for massive success is: knowledge + action - overthink = incredible results. 

There are a few people, the elite, who INVEST in coaching.

It's true, a lot of people have a big aversion to getting on a call with potential clients.

You can be the best coach in the world but if you can't sell, then you can't do what you do best.

When I even mention sales to a lot of people and ask them what comes to mind they say things like:

High pressure.
Sleazy.
Manipulative.
Hidden agenda.
Aggressive.
Never stopping.

^ Those are actually words from a live call I did where I asked that question.

So how do you sell if your gut gets an icky feeling with even mentioning sales?

Our Leveraging LinkedIn community had the honor of having Charlotte Petit Noble drop some massive value on our group about sales calls and how to feel good about them.

English is a second language for Charlotte and she says she can close sales calls with ease by adopting these 4 core beliefs:

Core Belief #1: You are the expert. You are the one that solves the problem. You are the one who can solve the pain points.

1 - Because it costs money and it will take away from what I have earned or saved up, I'll be going backwards instead of forwards.

2 - Because it takes up time and with as busy as I am right now, I just can't put anything more on my plate.

3 - Because now isn't the right time. The timing will be much better down the road when I am less busy.

Now, I know you are thinking those sound like a bunch of excuses that people say, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙪𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙢𝙮 𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙨.

But it really doesn't matter if it's and excuse or legit because the result is the exact same ...... nothing happens or changes.

Last fall I was asked to join what seemed to be a very expensive mastermind group and I said those 3 things, I don't have the time, it costs too much and now isn't the right time.

I felt good about the decision and had no regrets.

But this May I was approached again to join, but the price had increased another $5k from 8 months before and would exceed my mortgage.

The best post I've ever seen on LinkedIn

This post is from Lea Turner, an amazing coach who has created a highly successful coaching business on LinkedIn. 

She wrote: 

"today I sent the most empowering text of my life and it's costing me around £40k.

My son has never met his father. It wasn’t my choice for it to be that way, but it isn’t a decision I regret being made.

I hold no anger towards the situation, but today I sent a message severing him from any further financial responsibility.

Because he needs the money more than we do.

It felt really, really good.

(And it has only been possible because of LinkedIn and the incredible community here)"

I love this on so many levels, especially because Leah changed the conditions instead of adapting to them. 

It's not easy to do, and sometimes it's not right, but I can't imagine the feeling she had sending this text message out. 

We are all capable of changing our conditions instead of adapting to them. 

We are...
