Creating The Perfect Sales Pitch, Ep 193

4/15/2021
You’re probably all too familiar with both ends of the sales spectrum. On one end are people unwilling to sell anything, because they feel slimy at the thought of selling. At the opposite end are people willing to sell you swampland in Florida if it means they can make a quick buck. When you have something of legitimate value to offer--something you’re proud of that makes people’s lives better in a way that matters to them--it is your ethical and moral duty to learn how to...

4/1/2021
How is it possible to have a multi-million dollar business and not be making any money? Simple: Because sales are not the same thing as profits. Everywhere you turn are businesses boasting about making six figures, seven figures, and up, but when you peek behind the scenes, are these businesses actually profitable?

The 3-Point Marketing Method to Simplify and Scale in 2021 with Tim Fitzpatrick, Ep 190

3/25/2021
If something’s not working in your business, tactics are the first place a lot of entrepreneurs look. As in, if you tweak a headline, get more views, or change a button color, you’ll make more sales. If you’ve got your fundamentals in place, tactics like those might make a difference. If you don’t, focusing on tactics like those is like putting new hubcaps on a car that has no engine. New hubcaps won’t make the car run. In addition to wasting time and money, the tactics-only approach...

If you judge the entrepreneur’s journey based on Photoshopped social media images, you’re getting only five percent (at most) of what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur..

Every year when January winds to a close, one of two things begins to happen: You dig in and surge forward on the goals you made at the start of the year, or your commitment to those goals starts slipping away.
