you should attend mastermind weekend

At the end of March, I asked my clients what they wanted.

We talked about how I'd been hosting virtual mastermind meetings for almost three years and the fact that I'd held over 150 meetings. We also discussed how I'd been coaching for almost four years, and they reminded me how much of an impact I'd had on their lives. (It sounds like I'm bragging, but that's what they told me). Since they'd each experienced the connection of a virtual mastermind, they all agreed that live events should be my next goal.

So, when I asked my clients what they wanted…

Mastermind Weekend is what they asked for.

Get My Ticket Now!

The Concept

The first time I attempted a live event of this type was in May of 2014. I grew up camping, my wife and I enjoy camping, and I thought the idea of sitting around a campfire talking about business would be a smash hit.

And it was; sort of.

3 years ago, I barely had any clients, my email list had less than 100 people on it, and hardly anyone knew who I was.

Today, everything has changed.

The entrepreneur community made one of my books an Amazon #1 bestseller, 100s of people have purchased, learned and benefited from my self-published book Exit Strategy, and I've been allowed to speak at several conferences and to business and marketing students at a major university.

My goal with Mastermind Weekend is to combine the collaboration of a virtual mastermind and the impact of a live event and create an amazing, educational, and powerful two-day event for entrepreneurs and business owners.

Why Live Events Are Important

Without technology and the ability to do video calls with people around the world, my business would look vastly different. Perhaps that is true for you too.

However, in a world of virtual meetings, long distance phone calls, and internet hangouts, the handshake still rules. When you can sit across the table from another owner, when you can share a drink with your fellow entrepreneurs, and when you can sit in the same room and experience the same things, you can take your relationships to the next level.

Mastermind Weekend provides all of those things.

3 Reasons You Should Attend Mastermind Weekend

1: Actionable Advice from Real Business Owners

After leading hundreds of mastermind meetings with entrepreneurs at all stages of business and from locations around the world, I've developed a powerful formula for success that will keep attendees both encouraged and accountable. Each session will give you the opportunity to introduce your business, share a recent accomplishment, and participate in the hot seat.

As the world goes more online and the internet gets bigger, one of the biggest challenges small businesses face is obscurity – nobody knows who they are. That stems from things like poor marketing, inadequate communication, or just plain unclear customer messaging. During your mastermind sessions, you'll learn how to break through information silos, market your business better, and communicate your brand messaging more effectively.

Trust me, this works, and I have the testimonials to prove it.

Reserve My Ticket Now!

2: Real-Time, Relevant Feedback for Your Business

Another reason you should attend Mastermind Weekend is that this isn't another event where you hear about other success stories but have to theorize about how you can apply what you learn to your own business. At Mastermind Weekend, you will not be one in a thousand attendees, and the information won't be diluted to meet the needs of everyone.

As a Mastermind Weekend attendee, you will get to present your business to the group and receive direct and actionable advice from other owners about how to reach new clients, increase revenue, and grow your business.

NOTE: Participating in the hot seat doesn't mean you or your business is broken or failing. On the contrary. I've worked with million-dollar businesses and their owners to help them achieve new and amazing things. Mastermind aren't for the weak; they're for the strong who want to become stronger.

3: Expand Your Network & Develop Partnerships

Successful businesses are owned by entrepreneurs with powerful relationships. Each day of your Mastermind Weekend has dedicated networking and connection time built-in, so you can grow a network of reliable and knowledgeable entrepreneurs from around the world.

Not every moment will be learn, learn, learn, and not every session is going to be business, business, business. I believe entrepreneurship and business ownership are too hard to not be having fun, so there'll be plenty of that too. Don't worry, you're not paying to party, but I'll make sure you get a good mix of fun and post-college knowledge.

Summary

If you've ever sat in a giant auditorium or conference center and wondered how you could take what the person on stage was saying and apply it to your business, Mastermind Weekend is for you. Not only will you get to learn from and engage with business experts (not just me), but you'll get to connect and interact with other business owners too.

A couple of weekends ago, I flew to Toronto to attend Vacation Rental Success Summit. While I don't own a vacation rental, nor have I stayed at one, I was interested in watching one of my clients speak on stage, and I wanted to support a close friend.

Want to listen? There's an audio version below

While at the workshop the day before the event, I left my introvert's perch off to the side of the room, and I began interacting with the attendees.

more alike than different

At first, I didn't expect to have much in common with those people. They were older, many from different countries and their businesses weren't things I had much experience in. I was in a strange new country, I was tired from traveling and staying up way too late, and I was out of my comfort zone.

But as I talked with more of these vacation rental owners, I learned something.

And, what I learned was powerful, and something I want to share with you.

Though deep down I think I know this, I learned that we're more alike than different.

Over the past several months, social media has been hell. Scrolling through your Facebook feed, you've probably noticed a lot of negativity, opposing opinions, and all sorts of reasons why you should un-friend or un-follow your friends.

And the TV news channels haven't been any better! Flip over to any major network and you'll see hate crimes, beatings, firebombings and all sorts of bad things happening to people just like you and me.

But sitting there hearing about the problems, challenges, goals and dreams of these entrepreneurs, I couldn't help but feel kindness, sympathy, empathy, understanding friendship towards them. The more they talked, the more I knew we were alike.

And that's the message I'd like to leave you with today – there are more things that connect us than that keep us apart. We're more alike than different.

For the most part, we all want the same things. We want happiness and safety, energy and opportunity. We want a chance to succeed on our terms, and to be judged for what we do, not how we look. We all want to travel and to spend time with friends and family. And that's just the beginning.

Before you let a news channel or a news feed tell you what you should think or how you should feel about someone, sit down and try to understand them.

I'm no peacekeeper and I'm not someone who innately looks for the good in other people. I'm just someone too shy to speak up, but who learned a lot from listening in.

Have an amazing day!

One of the most common requests I get through my community survey is for me to share more about how to grow an email list.

Want to listen? There's an audio version below!​

tips for growing an email list

I guess talking about how to get better results with your email campaigns in this post, and how NOT to grow your list here, and how to get your emails into the inbox here, and in chapter 27 of this book isn't enough. =)

But I get it, searching through archived blog posts and old podcast episodes takes time, and everybody wants new and fresh information (and so do search engines).

So, today, let's look at some atypical ways to grow your email list, how to convince people that signing up is worth them sharing their email address, and maybe some more tactical ways you can entice people to join your community.

4 Tips for Growing Your Email List

First off, nobody wants to join an email list. We guard our email addresses almost as closely as we fend off attackers asking for our cell phone numbers. While 20 years ago it was cool to get an email, now new messages are greeted with, "Ugh, what now!?"

So, if you're going to grow your email list, you're going to have to do something extra special.

Tip #1: Do Something Special

The other night, I was enjoying a cigar with an acquaintance. Like your relationship with many of your readers or listeners, our relationship swirled around a mutual connection and a passing interest (sorry for the vagueness). While we were enjoying our maduros, he said, "Hey you should buy ___(whatever it was)___ and if you don't like it, I'll take it!"

Everybody likes getting things for free. Though we don't always VALUE what we get for free, we still like getting those things.

Whether you give a 10% off coupon, a free strategy session, or a few of your favorite books through a giveaway, you should give something away for free.

Tip #2: Give Something for Free

Over the past few months years, Facebook groups have become super-popular. Fan pages used to be all the rage, now those are dead(ish), and Groups are "where it's at." After all, we don't want to be "fans," we want to be part of a community. No, not like that...

Anyway, two of my clients have gotten amazing results and grown their email lists significantly (nearly doubled them) in the past few months, all because they started Facebook groups, built a community, and engaged with their members.

Brenda Mullard, an artist, teacher and entrepreneur from Wisconsin, started the Facebook group Art Teachers Teaching Art. When I asked Brenda about advice for growing an email list by leveraging a Facebook group, she said,

The biggest tip is to start a group without even thinking about making a cent from it. Start it to genuinely start a group for the avatar you care about, not people you want to buy from you. Help people to get engaged and start a community people want to come to for help, help others in the group or just to be with others like themselves.

brenda mullard art teachers teaching art facebook group

Another client and entrepreneur, Bridgette Petrino, has also seen amazing email list growth after starting her Facebook group Mommy Needs a Timeout Community. From this group she's signed new coaching clients, sold products, and found real validation in her branding and marketing strategies.

It seems there really is something to this whole group thing, and if you want to join the Empowered & Equipped Facebook group for entrepreneurs, click here.

Tip #3: Start a Facebook Group

While Bridgette has done amazingly well with her Facebook Group for busy Moms, she attributed her email list growth to something else. When I asked her for her best tip for growing an email list, she said,

The best advice I can give is hustle like crazy. Guest post, figure out an opt-in that converts, and get visible.

Short, simple, to the point. But Bridgette's advice is really great, partly because it was quick and off-the-cuff, but also partly due to what her suggestion means if we break it down.

Let's take a deeper look.

Hustle - Putting up an opt-in form won't cut it. You've got to create content that builds your authority and makes you look irresistible to your prospective customers, and that takes a lot of hustle.

Guest Post - Bridgette's inspirational and empowering writing has been featured on the front page of Thrive Global several times.

High-Converting Opt-Ins - I tried almost 12 lead magnets before I found one that really attracted people to sign up. If you're struggling to find a lead magnet with a high opt-in rate, read 5 Key Criteria of a Killer Lead Magnet.

Get Visible - I bet a lot of people would glaze right over this last bit of advice, but it's likely the most important part of what Bridgette said. As I said here, obscurity is one of the biggest problems faced by small businesses today; the market is crowded, and nobody knows who you are. It's not that people don't want to be on your email list, they just don't know it exists.

Tip #4: Get Visible

The next thing you could do to grow your email list is to offer something secret or private to people who trust you with their email address. Sending out emails every time you publish something new is amateur hour and not something you should do as a pro.

When I email the people on my list, I send them information, stories, tips, and other bits that can't be found anywhere else. Treat the people on your email list like they're super-valuable (because they are), and tell people what exclusive benefits they can expect by being on it.

BONUS Tip #1: Offer Exclusive Content

If you hopped onto someone's website and there were typos everywhere and grammatical mistakes on every page, you wouldn't have much confidence in that person's ability to send you anything good via email. If they can't communicate well publicly, they can't communicate well privately to their email list either.

Additionally, if you plugged in your headphones and tuned into a podcast like The Ellory Wells Show and found that the host couldn't get to the point or teach a lesson, you'd probably assume that they didn't reserve their talents for their email communications.

We write like we talk, and we talk like we think. If your thoughts are muddled your words will be too.

As a side note, no one is going to forward a poorly written email to their friends or co-workers either. People don't recommend things that make them look bad.

BONUS Tip #2: Improve Communication Skills

And there you have it, 4 tips (and 2 bonuses) about how you can grow your email list. Sure, anyone can write about opt-in boxes that convert, or why you need multiple forms on a page, or even why pop-ups work (even though everyone hates them), but I hope these 6 tips for growing your email list are unique and helpful.

Summary

It's not always about how you make the offer. Sometimes it's about the offer itself. Make someone's life better or remove a pain point. The subscribers will follow.

But there isn't.

The best we can do is learn, observe, and do the things we need to do so we have the best chances of getting what we want.

3 questions determine success

While there is no step-by-step formula for success we can follow, and although I tried to share the ingredients here, there are things we can do to be more successful. If you survey and study the winners out there, the ones who achieve amazing things, you'll notice a trend in their behaviors.

If you want to grow your business and if you want to make more sales or be seen as an expert or leader in your industry, ask yourself these three questions.

3 Questions that Will Determine How Successful You Are

How Much Time Do You Spend Practicing & Getting Better?

Successful people don't waste a lot of time talking about what they want to do.

They do it.

If you were born to do something, nothing should keep you from doing that thing. It shouldn't matter if nobody buys the end result of your work; if you're an artist, make art. If you're a writer, write. If you're a salesman, sell something. If you're a filmmaker, make films.

When you love what you do, nothing will stop you or get in the way of you doing it. And that will make you better, and getting better will make you successful.

Preparation and practice are two primary ingredients in any plan for success. Find ways to do what you love and work them into your daily life. Weave your practice time into your schedule so you improve every day.

If you want to play at the highest levels, you've got to spend more time practicing and getting better than everyone else.

How Much Time Do You Spend Studying the Competition?

There are two schools of thought when it comes to how you should look at your competition.

One side, the side with Gary Vaynerchuk on it, will tell you to pay no attention whatsoever to what your competition is doing. They'll tell you to focus, keep your head down, and do the work you want to do.

The other side, the side with Art of War author, Sun Tzu, on it, will tell you to study your enemy and know his tactics.

So, which do you choose?

I kind of fall on both sides of the fence. As with anything, a middle ground here is preferred over either extreme.

When I look at what I want to create, I focus on the result I want to deliver to my clients. I try to inject my personality, skills, and strengths into everything I do, and that has made me fairly successful.

However, I also look at what my competition is doing and how they're doing it. If you don't watch the market and see what's working and what isn't, you're no different from an ostrich that sticks its head in the sand.

Study your competition. Learn from what they're doing well, and see if you can adapt their methods to what you're doing. Don't change who you are, but be aware of how things can be done, and learn from other people's mistakes.

How Often Are You Researching, Studying, or Learning Your Craft?

If I asked you to name one successful entrepreneur who didn't spend time every week reading books about business, I bet you couldn't do it. I don't know if it's possible because I doubt that owner even exists.

Just like making time for regular practicing, successful people research, study and learn about how they can get better at their craft. Artists study the way different types of paint react to various types of surfaces. Photographers study lighting techniques. Chefs experiment with new ingredients and exotic styles of cooking.

Summary

Every time I've invested time, energy or money in myself or my business it has paid off. In entrepreneurship there is almost zero waste; everything we learn can be applied to a dozen different areas, and every failure is something we can learn from.

Sometimes I think my clients think I'm kidding when I tell them to study, practice and learn more about their business. But I'm not.

While I understand and embrace the importance of the “side hustle,” I've also learned that your part-time mindset is keeping you from full-time success. And, your “I will when I have time” mentality is putting a full-stop on you achieving your dream.

part-time mindset prevents full-time success

Sometimes Part-Time is Ok

There are some things in life where you don't mind working with someone who's a part-time worker. Babysitters, hair stylists, the kid who mows your lawn… these are all great things to do on a part-time basis.

But when it comes to building a business, you cannot be part-time. When you're designing a life you love, you can't be interested only some of the time.

Part of Me Understands

A small part of me understands the person who told me they were unwilling to invest in themselves by signing up for a mastermind. When I first started, I would have been very hesitant to spend that kind of money for something intangible and where results were not guaranteed.

But the larger part of me, the part that's put in years of work, invested thousands of dollars in personal development, and the part that's seen the results my clients have achieved… that part of me doesn't understand at all.

If your part-time efforts are simply a means to an end, like flipping burgers to make extra cash while in high school, I'm ok with that. However, if you want people to take you seriously, you can't bring your part-time game to the big leagues.

Skill vs Will

As with most things in life, the issue is either one of skill or will. When it comes to completing almost any task, we either have the skill to do so, or we don't; we either have the will to see it through, or we don't. At any point of failure, the cause can usually be placed into one of those two categories.

If you have the skill but fail to finish, you lack the will to do everything necessary. Conversely, if you don't have the skill, you can often muster up enough will to make up for lack of skill, and see your goal achieved.

We either don't have the skill to achieve our goals, or we don't possess the will to do what is necessary.

And that's ok.

For some people.

But not me.

I only want to work with the best, most driven people out there. Like the attorney who only takes cases he can win, I only work with people I know I can help. A good coach can help you with skill, but no coach can give you the will.

When Part-Time Doesn't Work

Before you fly into a rage about me saying you'll never be successful if you're only part-time, let me say something.

Part-time works, if and only if, you're all-in during your part-time. Building your business on the side is 100% fine with me if you're 100% focused during the time you have. But that's not often the case.

It's like the guy who shows up for tryouts but is only there to mess around; he wastes everyone's time. The pros, those of us who live and breathe this stuff all day every day, can spot a part-time mindset and attitude a mile away. And, we stay away from it.

For a pro, time is a valuable asset. For a part-timer, time is something to be wasted. There can't be a middle ground.

So, when you show up with your part-time mindset, the pros in the room will ignore you. While pros respect and understand and relate to the full-time hustle on the part-time schedule, they have no patience for a part-time attitude.

You wouldn't hire a part-time attorney to defend your case. You wouldn't want bi-pass surgery from a part-time doctor. You wouldn't bet the success of your wedding on a part-time wedding planner.

You can be a part-time babysitter, but you can't be a part-time parent. If you want to play in a band on the weekends, go for it, but don't be upset when you get out-hustled by the guy or girl who spends every waking moment making music.

If you wouldn't want to work with a part-timer, why would you want to be a part-timer yourself?

Part-Time on the Road to Full-Time

While I don't have time for a part-time mindset, I have tremendous respect for the part-time hustle. In fact, most of my clients started as part-time entrepreneurs before they were able to go full-time.

Here's what I mean.

A part-time mindset is one that's a take-it-or-leave-it approach to success. If it happens, great, but they're not putting everything on the line to make it happen. That's an issue of will.

A full-time mindset is one where someone is all-in, they have no fallback plan, and they're doing anything and everything necessary to make things happen. When there's an issue, it's usually one of skill.

A full-time mindset with a part-time schedule is when someone has a job that requires their full-time attention, but they spend their extra moments busting their butts to do something amazing. Though this person may not have all of the time available, the time they do have is focused and their energies are targeted.

A full-time mindset with a part-time schedule produces winners. A part-time mindset produces missed marks and unrealized dreams.

Summary

Yes, there is a place for part-timers. Yes, I know that not everyone has the desire to make a full-time income from their business. And, yes, I know that I might be coming across fairly intense.

However, I've seen the situation time and time again, where an aspiring entrepreneur is tied down by their mindset, and those ties are keeping them from doing something they'd really love to do. If you don't fully commit, you can't fully fail.

Your mindset WILL dictate your results. Don't let your part-time way of thinking limit you.

how to build connections with email

Two years ago, when I only had a couple of hundred people on my email list, I was sending over 1000 emails per month. Today, I'm sure that number is well over 10,000, and I know some businesses that send 100s of thousands of emails every single month.

But, as they say, what counts is quality, not quantity. And I mostly agree.

While I'm sure we agree that the quality of your emails is more important than the quantity you send, there's still a lot of question about what makes up a “quality” email. A lot of people have asked me,

What types of emails should I send to my subscribers?

And, since that question has come up several times, and because I've wondered the same thing myself, I thought I share some of the types of emails I've sent that have gotten great responses.

If you want to get better results with your email campaigns, check out these other posts I've written on the topic:

Well, apparently email marketing is a hot topic here, as it should be, because people still ask me for help with it, and the emails we send can have a powerful impact on our ability to communicate with our clients and communities.

If you send emails as part of your role within your company, here are a few types of emails you should send to build rapport with the people on the receiving end. Whether you're an entrepreneur or a salesman new to a territory, these emails will help your clients get to know, like and trust you, and, ultimately, more open to buying from you.

So stop selling, use these connection-building emails, and start building a real business!

8 Types of Emails You Should Send to Build Report

Before we go too far, I want to recommend two tools that will help you tremendously. The first is Grammarly, and the second is ActiveCampaign.

Grammarly has both a free option for using in your web browser and a paid option you can install on your computer for offline use. Grammarly picks up spelling and grammatical errors before we send our emails, so we don't look inept or hurt our credibility. Read my full review of Grammarly here.

After trying several email marketing services for my online business, I found ActiveCampaign. After thorough testing and two years, and tens of thousands of emails sent, I highly recommend ActiveCampaign. They're one of the best values for your money and have some of the best tracking features of any software currently available. Plus, they'll even test your emails against their spam scoring tool before you send them! Start a free trial here.

The “Who” Email

No, we're not talking about the band. When it comes to buying and selling, we all want to know who we're talking to, hearing from, or who we're going to be working with.

In your “Who” email, tell people who you are. Share your interests, give some insight into your family and what you do for entertainment.

Sharing personal information may seem weird to you at first, but I promise, sharing about who you are will bring in more sales and help you grow your business. Before your customers can like and trust you, they have to know you, and that begins with knowing who you are.

The “What” Email

Sales people often assume their prospects know what they're trying to sell. Sales people also assume that clients are aware of every product or service available to them. In both cases, the sales people would be wrong.

Letting people know what you do and what you have to offer is the first steps to growing your business, and a lot of salespeople fail at this.

I did.

While on a mastermind call a few months ago, I asked my clients if they were aware that I also did 1×1 coaching. Only half of the people said yes. WHAT!? I'd failed to let my clients know about the other services I offered and what else I could do for them.

The “What” emails can be further divided into two subsets:

What You Do

Don't just tell your subscribers and list of clients what you sell. That information should be on your website somewhere.

Share your approach to problems. Talk about how you help your clients. Don't just sell products, share what makes you different from other sales people and your competitors.

Pro Tip: Don't just share what you do well. Let people in on your weaknesses (like I did here), and they'll like you that much more because they know they can trust you.

What Clients Can Expect

When entrepreneurs and business owners sign up for my email list, I send them a list what they can expect from me.

When people join one of my mastermind groups, one of the first things I send them is a “Welcome Packet.” And, in that packet is a section for expectations – both what I expect from them and what they can expect from me.

The “When” Email

As with the “What” emails, the “When” emails can cover a variety of things as well, so get creative.

Send an email letting people know when you're open for walk-ups. Send an email to tell people when you got started or when you began your business. Tell people when they can expect your emails, or when you're going to celebrate your 20th business anniversary.

The “Where” Email

One of the emails I send my community is a “where I'll be” email. I love getting to meet my clients in person, but it's rare that I get to. So, by letting them know where I'll be and when, we can get together for dinner, drinks, or a meetup.

You could also send a “Where” email to let people know where you'll deliver or ship your products. Tell them where you're going to hold your next event or where other companies have featured you.

The “Why” Email

I studied psychology in college because I wanted to know why people behaved the way they do. Children always want to know why things happen a certain way. Understanding why things happen is human nature, and when you can supply an answer, you're giving people something they need.

Let your clients in on the secret and tell them why you got into your line of work. Share why you started your business or why you chose to do this instead of that.

If you broke your previous sales record, you could talk about what you did and why you did things differently this time. If you canceled a product line or service, talk about why. If you partnered with another business or invested in new research, sharing why would be a great way to build rapport.

The “How” Email

Exit Strategy BookIn my book Exit Strategy, I share the story about visiting the Tabasco factory in Louisiana. While on the factory tour, I learned how they pick the peppers (and why not all peppers are chosen), and how they make their world-famous Tabasco sauce. Here I am 10+ years later, and I still remember.

How you do business is what sets you apart from your competition. How you approach problems, how you develop solutions, and how you treat people are all things that make you unique.

The “Update” Email

The first time I wrote an “Update” email and sent it to my list was back in 2013. I was sitting in a coffee shop and feeling fairly frustrated. The night before, I'd watched a Shark Tank rerun and a comment Mark Cuban made wasn't sitting well with me.

So, I emailed my subscribers about it.

I shared what was going on, what Cuban said, and why I didn't feel like his advice was all that great for people in my position. The open and reply rates to that email were significantly higher than any other email I'd written before.

When people know you're trying to connect with them and show your humanity, you'll stand out from every other salesperson vying for their time and who just wants to sell, sell, sell. As long as you tie your “update” back to your overall business, it won't be out-of-place and recipients won't see your email as a distraction.

The “Proof” Email

You can talk about how great you are and how amazing your products are, but at some point, you need to show some proof. Of course, YOU think you're great, but when someone else says it, you actually become great.

Your “Proof” email could be a case study illustrating how a client implemented your product or service and had great results. Your “Proof” email could be a testimonial video featuring a client who is similar to the prospect you're trying to sign. “Proof” emails can also point to any awards you've received and how you'd like to implement the wonderful solution for your prospects.

Summary

Get creative with your emails. Don't try to sell all the time.

You can use these ideas or do what one of my clients, Jon Stolpe, did, and write emails around your five senses. Jon wrote an email about things he saw that reminded him of his father and the legacy he left, and then Jon tied the email back into one of the services. It was AWESOME, and a great way to implement these strategies.

Over the past few weeks, I've gotten several emails from people who are trying to get their business either going or growing. But, for some reason, they're not getting traction, not making sales and some even are challenged with finding the motivation to keep going.

pick my brain on business and entrepreneurship

So, to help them (and you), I want to share some of the resources I'd give you if we sat down for coffee so you could “pick my brain.” I WANT you to be successful in your business, even if you don't work with me, so here we go.

1: ASK

Every step forward that I've made in my business is one I've made because I've asked for it. I asked someone to buy; I asked someone to read a blog post; I asked someone to listen to my podcast. In the 1st three months of 2017, I've already done over 1/2 of the revenue of the entire year last year, because I ASKED for the business.

Read more about how I grew my business year over year.

2: NARROW YOUR FOCUS

When you try to reach everyone with your message or product, you'll end up reaching no one. If you try to tell a story that appeals to the largest possible audience, no one will like it.

Here are two analogies:

A: Your message/product is like Kool-Aid — pour a scoop in, and it tastes great, the mix is right, and people who like kool-aid will love what you've made. But some people will say it's too strong, or it's not what they're used to, so you dilute the potency to reach a broader audience. Now nobody likes your drink, not even you, and it kinda sucks. All because you tried to please too many people.

B: Your message/product is like a punchWhich has more of an impact, a slap or a punch? A slap hurts, a punch can knock someone out. When you pull your fingers in (i.e., narrow their focus) from a slap and make a fist, you can really do some serious damage.

In 5 years of blogging, podcasting, coaching and doing online business, I've never had someone narrow their focus too much. It's a practical impossibility.

To help you narrow your focus, here's a worksheet I created to help one of my clients, and you can download it for free at the link below:

Download the Avatar worksheet here.

3: PROVE IT

While on a coaching call the other day, one of my clients told me the highlights and bullet points of one of her programs. After she had got through describing the training she was offering, I was like, “Holy CRAP! That sounds awesome! Is that information on your sales page anywhere?”

Nope, it sure wasn't.

When we're first getting started we guard our information, our Intellectual Property if you will, very closely. We're paranoid someone will steal our ideas, and we're worried that if we give too much away, nobody will sign up or pay for the full thing.

But that's wrong.

No matter what business you're in or what stage your business is in, you have to prove your value. You have to explain why people should pay attention and show your prospective customers why they should buy what you have to offer.

They won't figure it out on their own!

When Apple launched a new phone, they demo'd it. When Sony launched a new PlayStation, they demo'd it. When the restaurant down the street opened their first location… they demo'd it; they invited their friends and family to eat for free, and they had a soft opening where they gave away appetizers.

I would not have a business if I didn't prove I was worth paying attention to every day. So, to help you “prove it,” click the link below and I'll share…

How to Create Content that Builds Your Business

4: UP YOUR GAME

If we were sitting down for coffee and you wanted to pick my brain, the final thing I'd advise is for you to up your game. You're good enough to start, but you're not good enough to finish.

Yet.

As the saying goes, “yesterday's thinking won't solve today's problems.” And the same mentality holds true for everything you want to accomplish in life and business. What got you here is not likely to get you where you want to go.

When I first started, I was using a free WordPress theme and free software. And it looked like it.

One night while watching TV, I got a call from one of my first mastermind clients. To paraphrase, what he said was that my landing pages sucked and I was probably losing money because my online presence lacked professionalism. In short, I needed to up my game.

Up Your Game Step 1

The first thing you should do is get an objective, outside, 3rd party opinion on your business. Have someone neutral take a look at your site, your store, your product pages, etc., and ask them to assess everything. Ask them if your site looks professional. Ask them if your product pages are clear and if they know exactly what they'll receive if they buy from you. Or, if they even feel comfortable buying from you.

If they say “yes” to all of those questions, great. If not, you've got some work to do, and you need to up your game.

Up Your Game Step 2

The second thing I'd suggest is to always be on the lookout for ways you can improve. As my friend Jeff Brown says, “leaders are readers,” and if you're going to lead anyone, you've got to be constantly learning.

I know, that's a lot of work. But, SURPRISE! So is building a successful business.

My clients constantly keep me on my toes. So does my competition. These two groups are always nipping at my heels, pushing me to improve and stay ahead of the curve. If you're not making a daily effort to learn and improve, you cannot up your game.

To help you “up your game,” I've linked to my book, Exit Strategy. You can buy it or not, but at the end, in Appendix-A, you'll find my recommended reading list of books that have helped me significantly over the past ten years. You should buy them and read them.

5: THE #1 PROBLEM NEW BUSINESSES FACE – Obscurity

Ok, so there's one more thing that stops new entrepreneurs in their tracks. This is something I faced, still often face, and every one of my clients has faced.

It's real, and it's a MAJOR problem. If you want more information, you've got to listen to the episode in the player below!

I want you to be successful in whatever you're doing, and there it is. This is some of my best stuff, and I hope it helps.

Summary

Ask for what you want, narrow your focus, show your worth, and improve your skills.
