How To Improve Your Communication Skills To Increase Your Income

There’s actually ONE THING that determines 85% of your financial success. Avoiding it, ignoring it, or calling it unfair won't change a thing. According to Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation, and Stanford Research Center…

Whether its applying for a job, working your way into leadership, presenting in front of an audience or closing more deals in your business, it literally pays to level up your communication skills. Communication is also a skill that can be improved and can be an instant way to create a higher income in your career. 

When it comes to building your online business, communication is also important because you'll be closing high ticket sales (anything over $3k) on a sales call. You'll also need it when you show up on live presentations, being a guest on a podcast or live show, or selling an online course through a webinar or challenge. 

Being in sales for the last 10 years, communication skills are...

Its called UGC (User Generated Content) and I think it's a market getting ready to explode. 

According to Hootsuite:

"User-generated content (also known as UGC or consumer-generated content) is original, brand-specific content created by customers and published on social media or other channels. UGC comes in many forms, including images, videos, reviews, a testimonial, or even a podcast."

But can you make money with User Generated Content? Yes, absolutely, and this has actually been one the best ways to make money online that I've ever experienced. And many that I know are creating full online businesses with UGC.

Unlike 'affiliate marketing' where you refer YOUR audience to the products you know, like and trust; UGC is creating content for brands or distributors to use for THEIR audiences. While I do like recommending offers to my audience, I like to do it sparingly and not all the time, which is why UGC is...

I just dropped an episode with Ilyse Craft, known as the 'Supercoach' on Linkedin and someone who I consider to be a LinkedIn Legend, on something we've both been geeking out on:

Making affiliate income from recommending products and services that you know and love and are already recommending to people; also known as affiliate marketing.

At a very basic level you could make enough to cover or bring down costs of things you are already buying, or you could use it to supplement your business income by taking a more active role in recommending products or services to your clients. And some people create full on passive businesses by using social media to create a tribe around a topic, then connecting those people with recommended products and services.

How to Create Captivating Content for YouTube and Podcasts Episodes

One of the biggest struggles some of my students have is how to create effective content, especially when it comes to long form content such as YouTube videos and Podcast episodes. Don’t worry, I got you covered and will share one of my favorite ‘content frameworks’ that I use for video’s and podcast episodes!

Why is this so important? ICYMI last week I dropped an episode of the High Value Skills Podcast where I share just how important it is to be a part of the Creator Economy (available on Apple and Spotify).

I believe the ability to grow a loyal audience through content is the true decentralized cryptocurrency (done right you eliminate the need for cold outreach).

Cold outreach takes time and honestly can be a pain in the ass. Why not use that time to sharpen your content skills so clients come to you?

I’ll save that convo for a later date, but here’s a 5 part content framework for you to use right now, it...

Threads, the new app by Meta has lost 88% of its traffic in less than one month.

I'm going to break down what happened and 3 questions you should ask whether you are a one person business or a gigantic company like Meta so you don't make the same mistakes..

Meta did an exceptional job launching the Threads app, with over 100 Million sign ups in just a few weeks (1/4 of the total users of Twitter).

FOMO and curiosity was strong, plus the easy barrier for IG users to instantaneously set up.

Threads easily crushed every social platform with getting people in the door, but then lost momentum almost as fast as it came. So what happened?

After a month of playing on the platform, I cannot understand a clear benefit of using it. And according to the Live Mint Blog, which also said usage is down from 19 minutes per user to 4 minutes: 

"One of the main reasons for the Threads app losing traction with users is the lack of clarity about what...

There's been a big problem brewing, decades in the making.

This photo is of me 28 years ago when I was a manager at the Salt Lake Country club.

I chose not to go to college because I hated school and couldn't imagine working to pay off loans to do something I hated.

I got my education (partially) from the many wealthy & innovative entrepreneurs that were members here.

I noticed something strange though: many of the bartenders and servers that I managed were college grads that were struggling to find a job in the field they had chosen and bartending or serving to pay off their loans.

Some of them were about to go to college and it felt like they were randomly picking a degree to go into.

I believe at one time it made sense to be intentional about what you want to do and go to college to get a degree in that field, then spend your life in that career.

Part of the problem is that at a young age, its so hard to tell WHAT you want...

The Single FASTEST Way To 10x Your Time & Productivity

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I am obsessed with the concept of ‘bending time’; the ability to 10x the amount of what we can do.

It’s been 3 years since I’ve been able to run a business, create content on multiple platforms, run a full book in sales, be a father to 3 kids, sleep 8 hours per night, put out 140+ episodes of my podcast, create 200+ videos and work out/meditate 6 days per week.

I won’t go into it here, but I believe that time is highly malleable because of 1) how we manage time (what most people focus on), 2) our beliefs and how we ‘feel’ about our time (time anxiety) and 3) how we manage our ‘energy’ around time.

Today I wanted to talk about the ONE thing you can do to amplify time in your schedule and turn you into a time ninja.

The simple formula to getting massive results is this:

+Gain knowledge.

+ Take action.

– Reduce overthink.

= Massive results.
