The Secret To Making Virtual Income From Anywhere

By on Sep 21, 2015 in Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle Design |

Meet David, he’s an inspiring entrepreneur who wants to live anywhere and make money from any cafe, co-working, or home office in the world. He feverishly tries everything he can to contact people to buy his fancy consulting services. He reads everything he can about how to “push” his services onto unsuspecting prospects. Relentlessly he works as hard and as fast as he can, but gets minimal results. Then one day something clicks.  And it all changes. Instead of “pushing” his services onto other people, he does a complete 180′ and does what a “pull” strategy, and his world changes and he gets more business then he can handle…now he works all around the world, stress-free, getting clients with minimal effort. How does he do this? Using “pull” marketing, instead of “push” marketing, with a combined strategy of “channel marketing”. What is this you ask? Push marketing is when you PUSH your services onto other people, and if you push enough times they’ll be someone who buys.  The opposite is PULL marketing, where you focus on people who want your services, and you PULL them into you.  Very different.  Very different results. The kicker is that David decided to do Channel Marketing.  This means that he’s found Channels that already have a ton of buyers and then positioned himself effectively within those channels.  Examples would be Clickbank, Airbnb, Upwork, Elance, Amazon, Ebay, and other well known platforms.  With a steady stream of buyers, David can now focus on optimizing his presence within those channels and then the buyers find him! 🙂 Overtime David finds ways to position himself better on those channels, to the point where he is the go-to person for his services.  David now wakes up in the morning with invitations for new work everyday.  Without having to contact people cold. This is the power of getting positioned well on Channels, using Pull marketing. Now David can focus on building his Virtual Empire wherever he is.   Hopefully this simple concept helped you out.  Let me know any questions.  Look for upcoming strategies on how to position yourself on those channels and become the dominant player who gets never-ending customers.

Experience Your Ultimate Potential By Using The 5 Second Rule

By on Apr 20, 2015 in Lifestyle Design, Mindset Hacks, Productivity | 0 comments

Getting what you want is simple – but not easy.  It takes force. Watch this video: Today there’s more information then ever before.  You can go find information on how to do anything.  Start a business, learn a skill, build a house…pretty much anything can be found online.  You can find lots of blogs and model the exact person you want to emulate. Find someone you want to become, study them, become them. It’s simple – but not easy. In the video, Mel Robbins says we have two parts to our brain.  One is the Auto-Pilot mode, and the other is the Emergency Brake. Our brain wants to keep us on track.  It wants to conserve energy.  If there’s danger, it wants to have energy available in store to save us.  Our job, our friends, our home, our habits, our health…everything is kept in check by our brain wanting to keep us in routine.  If there’s sign of getting us out of routine, our brain puts on the emergency brake and keeps us in check. It’s the routine that’s killing us. People say “I’m Fine” to everything.  Their job is Fine, their body is Fine, their home is Fine, everything is just Fine.  The thing is, everything you really want in life, is just outside your comfort zone.  That girl you want to meet, that business you want to start, that vacation you want to take…the juice of requires you to push beyond your comfort zone (or as Mel say ‘Force’ yourself). How many times have you heard champion athletes, business people, celebrities and others saying they felt fear, but did it anyway.  This is the point you need to be at. You have things you want, so you need to act on your intuition. Mel Robbins, employs this by giving the 5 SECOND RULE.   5 Second Rule   To get past your feelings, and get on track to achieving your dreams, whenever you have an intuition to do something, do it within 5 seconds.  If you don’t do it within 5 seconds, your brain will turn the emergency brake on and kill the impulse. You’ll then not take action, and you wont get what you want.  You’ll be wasting your life away, being complacent, likely living for the weekends drinking and escaping life, rather then living what’s inside of you. Therefore, practice the 5 second rule by FORCING yourself to take action within 5 seconds, no matter what it is, and after doing so you’ll undoubtedly feel amazing by doing so. When you get in the habit of forcing yourself to act within 5 seconds, you’ll addicted to being living to your intuition, and then life will be in synchronicity, and amazing things will start showing up as it was magic…but you’ll have to consistently act within 5 seconds otherwise your brain will pull the emergency brake, and you’ll kill the impulses of your unique life. Go an impulse to do something now?  Go do it! 🙂   If you liked this post, subscribe to this blog and I’ll be sending you more cool blog posts just like this one.

The Easiest and Most Powerful Goal Setting Program

By on Mar 9, 2015 in Lifestyle Design, Productivity |

Most people set the standard 1 year resolutions (and rarely review them), 1 month goals, and daily to-do lists.  But what if I said you could do more in 3 months then most people do in 1 year? The solution is the 3x2x1 program.  It breaks up the year into short time blocks that are close enough to make the sense of urgency real, and at the same time far away enough to make a bold/profound change.   3 Month Transformation Goals   It’s been said that in 3 months (90 days), you are able to make bold transformations and still be able to maintain a sense of urgency.  Anything beyond 3 months is susceptible to too many variables.  Therefore anything beyond 3 months should be treated as a ‘vision’, and 3 month targets should be ‘goals’.  These goals are close enough to excite you, yet far enough that if you take correct action everyday can make a HUGE difference.  So much so, that your 3 month goals could be someone else’s 1 year goals.  This short term focus will amp up your emotions and get you to take action, instead of procrastinating…because 1 year seems like a long time away.   2 Week Tasks   Next up is the 2 week tasks.  Instead of having just 1 month goals, why not increase the urgency, really maximizing on your time (and fulfillment), and make them into 2 weeks tasks.  A goal might be to earn ‘X amount’, but a task is to make ‘X amount of sales leads’.  The tasks are concrete action steps  you can personally take.  These have a clear quantifiable end point.  Each goal should have at least 1 task pushing it along.  Or you can have multiple tasks to amplify the momentum of reaching the goal. 1 Week Accountabilities   From 2 week accountabilities, you have your weekly accountabilities.  These are the tasks you set out to complete in the current week.  All these accountabilities should be quantifiable to achieve, i.e. I will do my morning ritual 4x this week. It’s also recommended to have an accountability group to hold you up to accountability of completing them.  This is one of the most ways to ensure you’re keeping on target and not slacking or being lazy. In a future post I’ll show you my exact template I use to categorize each goal area and supporting action steps, along with a vision board in each category. Hope you enjoyed this post!

7 Reasons Why Kiteboarding Will Train You To Be a Kick-Ass Entrepreneur

By on Mar 2, 2015 in Free Day, Lifestyle Design, Travel | 0 comments

Typical kiteboarders are entrepreneurial, adventure minded, successful, and focused, but they’re also open minded, playful, and fun-spirited.  Most notably, kiteboarding attracts people who are willing to take a risk, in exotic conditions, in order for a potential huge reward.  It’s no wonder why kiteboarding is one of Richard Branson’s favourite hobbies. 1. Fundamentals are key.   There’s a big learning curve with kiteboarding.  Jumping in without proper training, and you’re sure to wash up on the beach.  Fundamentals are key.  You must check your safety gear, your riding equipment, and the water conditions before each ride. Similarly, entrepreneurs must assess market conditions, business plans, and human resource aspects before diving in.  Do the fundamentals.   2. Perfect conditions are rare, don’t procrastinate.   If you’re looking for perfect conditions to start, you’ll be waiting a long time.  Sometimes the wind is off, the water is choppy, or an array of other things aren’t as perfect as you were hoping.  The important thing is meeting about 80% of your criteria, then taking action. Just like in business, the market could be off timing, cost of goods could be high, or markets could be over saturated.  Research the market and jump in.   3. Starting is the hardest part.   With all the complex equipment, kiteboarding can be overwhelming.  Practice and perseverance are critical to getting over the resistance of starting.  Just like in starting a new business, there’s so many moving parts, from product development, lead generation, fulfillment, customer service, financials, etc.  Just get started one step at a time and eventually you’ll be riding with joy.   4. Create leverage.   For most new kiteboarders the kite is the scariest part.  However, learn how the kite works, and you can leverage it to create unbelievable leverage.  Point the kite in one direction, and it will create a surge of energy.  Same thing with business.  Look at the points in your business where you can put in minimal effort and get maximized return.  Delegate for ultimate leverage.   5. Commitment gets you the big air.   You won’t see kiteboarders mindlessly riding around.  The opposite, they are poised, focused, and committing to every move.  Once they see a wave, they commit fully and the results follow soon after.  They leap into the air…twisting, flipping, riding rails, or whatever reward they want to savour.  Commit and the results will follow.   6. Don’t blame circumstances, adapt to them.   In kiteboarding the wind is fickle.  The wind direction and speed change at a moments notice.  Kiteboarder’s who don’t adapt will be tossed around like a wet noodle.  Kiteboarders must anticipate great things, but if conditions change they must readjust their plans to deal with it.  Just like in business, you must adapt to customers feedback, new competitors, employee issues, or any other number of factors.  When changes occur, adapt quickly.   7. Tools don’t cut it, implementation does.   You could have the best kite, coolest board, newest harness, or any other piece equipment, but if you don’t know how to use them, it’s pointless.  In business, you can have the best computer, software, mastermind, etc, but without implementation you’ll never get the results you’re seeking. Implementation, implementation, implementation. Go out there and apply the things you know you should act on.  Forget about the ‘perfect’ day/time, just take action and adjust as you go.  You can always get new equipment and have better conditions.  Just getting going!

How To Master The 3 Types of Entrepreneurial Days

By on Feb 23, 2015 in Lifestyle Design, Productivity |

As entrepreneurs it’s easy to fill all your days with Work.  Constantly working day and night.  I’ve always thought I need to constantly work hard and long and that any time off would be loss of revenue.  However, by not taking anytime off it’s easy to get burnt out, lose drive, and energy.  By taking a complete 24hr free day (from midnight to midnight) you’ll gain more mental clarity, more drive and inspiration, and feel more connected to your business. Focus Days   In racing, this is the race day.  This is when the practice runs are over, the car has been tweak for max performance, and everything is set for ‘game-time’.  From midnight to midnight it’s time to be on your A-game.  The objective here is to be focusing 80% of your time on things that make a leveraged benefit on your business.  This is about getting stuff done…being as productive, effective and efficient as possible. No time here for messing around doing things slow.  Use the pomodero technique, and max out your days for optimal fulfillment.  Focus the mornings on your most profitable revenue producing activities in blocks of 2-2.5 hours, and soon you’ll be accomplishing much more in your day then you’ve thought possible.   Organization Days   In order to have super high productive and rewarding Focus Days, you must keep agile and on top of your things.  You must minimize your ‘stuff’ and get back to simplicity and organized.  Your action plan needs to be clear with your accountabilities, you’re daily priorities set, and the ‘race car’ ready to race.  To get to that state you need to spend time getting everything organized, returning calls, catch up on emails, clean up…ultimately restoring and maintaining simplicity in your life, and making sure your Focus and Free Days are not intruded. This is a great day for doing your GTD Weekly Review if you follow Getting Things Done, the stress-free productivity system. After you’ve completed your Buffer Day, and setup your Focus Day, then you can enjoy your Free Days with guilt-free pleasure, knowing that you’re on top of your business and personal life things.  This allows you to be more present, and connect more with people you love, getting more fulfillment and enjoyment.  That leads us to Free Days…   Free Days   Now that you’ve done your Buffer Day and setup your Focus Days for ultimate productivity and satisfaction, its time to enjoy your Free Day. This day is from midnight to midnight.  Not doing any work…enjoying the day with any recreation. At first it seems hard to take anytime off, but a magic things starts to happen.  You begin to master the art of delegation.  You begin to setup systems, processes, people, and whatever you need to do to enjoy your Free Day with complete pleasure, knowing everything is being handled.  Once you start taking free days, it becomes easier to take the time off. The Free Days are critical for rejuvenating yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually.  It’s the day to sit back, chill out, do anything you want that’s not work focused.  Go for a drive, a hike in nature, walk on the beach, a pool party, sight-seeing, etc. For me I use this as my cheat day for eating.  Throughout the week I’m very good with my diet, then on my Free Day which includes Sunday, I’ll pig out and eat whatever.  Then the next day it’s back on to a clean and nutritious meal plan. After you’ve completed the Free Day, you’ll be so charged up, ready to rock it on your Focus Day.  Where most people are easing into Monday with procrastination and drowsiness, you’ve already mentally prepped yourself to attack monday morning, because you’ve got you’re whole week planned and you’re relaxed after your Free Day. There you have it, the 3 types of Days: Focus Days, Organization Days, and Free Days.  My current setup is Mon-Thurs (Focus Days), Fri (Organization Day), Sat (Focus or Free Day…pending work completed), and Sunday (Free Day).

How To Triple Your Profit With A Simple Productivity Hack

By on Feb 16, 2015 in Lifestyle Design, Productivity |

There’s a fallacy derived from the Four Hour Work Week that our goal is to not work, or get it down to 4 hours a week.  But why 4 hours?  What if told you, you could wake up excited, get much more accomplished, and at least triple your business profit? This simple productivity hack will transform your day. Here’s the problem…most people are continually busy throughout the day, trying to get as much accomplished as they can, but by the time hits the afternoon your mental willpower and decision fatigue start to set in.  Everyday we only have so many energy cycles. By the time the end of your day hits, a ton of smaller priority tasks probably creeped into your day. The secret to boosting your profit by 3-5x….Schedule your MOST profitable (highest revenue producing) activities first part of your day.  Before emails, before any personal messages, before anything that consumes your energy. Therefore, the most profit generating activities are getting the highest priority of your day, and the highest  amount of energy.  By doing this consistently everyday, you’ll build unlimited momentum and the revenue will continually to build up. Personally, I like to get out of my place about 8am after my morning ritual.  This gets me into a work only environment where I can focus on executing without any distractions at home.  I do about 2.5 hrs of hard core focused work, then from that point my day ALREADY feels like an accomplishment.  Everything after at this point is gravy and bonus.  Even if I took the afternoon off it would still feel like my day was a success.  Then I hit the gym, and I can focus much more because it feels like a reward being at the gym.  Finish the gym with a power lunch, and you’ve got yourself a power packed morning, with revenue being at least tripled 🙂 My morning schedule looks like this: 6:30-8:00am – AM Ritual 8:00-10:30am – Most Profitable Activities 10:30-12pm – Gym 12:00-1:00pm – Lunch  Try it out and you’ll see that in no time your revenue is climbing, you’re feeling great, and you’re enjoying your lifestyle much more!
