=== SUMMARY ===

Many entrepreneurs build successful businesses simply by focusing on their greatest strength—the one thing they do better than anyone else.

But how many entrepreneurs build successful businesses by focusing on their greatest weakness?

And that’s what makes today’s guest on Making Bank, Chandler Bolt, so interesting—he decided to go against the grain and build a business with his greatest weakness—writing.

A lifetime “C” English student and college dropout, Chandler overcame his hatred of writing to write five, best-selling books including The Productive Person, Book Launch, and Published.

He then went on to start the Self-Publishing School, a business that’s helped thousands of people write and publish their own books. The school did $3.2 MILLION in revenue during its first year of operation, and is today considered the #1 online resource for first-time authors.

Tune-in as Chandler demystifies the book writing process and discusses...

•The importance of learning by doing

•Why you need to crunch the timeline for writing

•The 3 stages of writing a book: mind map, outline, write

•The danger of tying your self-worth to your business

•The importance of daily success rituals

•How to work through the struggles of writing a book

And much more…

=== SUMMARY ===

The path of the entrepreneur is littered with frightening unknowns, and discomforting realities, but of all those fears and discomforts, there is one more dangerous than the rest…

Complacency.

Complacency locks entrepreneurs in place, preventing them from moving, growing, learning, and blossoming into something greater.

Stagnation born of complacency is what kills entrepreneurial hopes, dreams, and motivations faster than anything else, and no one knows that better than today’s guest on Making Bank, Calvin Wayman.

Calvin’s wants to help entrepreneurs form an addition to discomfort—to learn to love feeling like a “fish out of water”—as a means of permanently staving off complacency. He wants entrepreneurs to disrupt their comfort, stability, and understanding of what is normal, in order to take their greatness to the next-level. His book, Fish Out of Water, (an Amazon Top 100 in the Success Category) offers an in-depth exploration into the principles of disruption that help entrepreneurs evolve through a series of ceiling-shattering breakthroughs.

In addition to writing Fish Out of Water, Calvin runs CobbesMedia, has been featured on Entrepreneur.com, Social Media Examiner, Huffington Post, and was titled Top 30 Under 30 by Influencive.com.

Tune-in to hear Calvin talk about fighting complacency, as well as...

•How complacency is your greatest villain 

•The power of self-investment

•Why like-minded entrepreneurs need to populate your life

•Building a business independent of location

•What it means to be a “fish out of water”

•Why consistently creating new normals is vital

•The three-ways to LEVEL-UP in business and in life

And much more…

The Entrepreneurial Journey with Guest Matt Miller: MakingBank S2E6

=== SUMMARY ===

People take the entrepreneurial leap because of the potential it has to deliver.

The potential freedom from an office or a schedule.

The potential of making a career out of a personal passion. 

The potential to earn more money than would otherwise be possible working for someone else.

Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee any of these “potentials” will ever be fulfilled—at least not without a mind-numbing amount of hard work.

Entrepreneurial success comes at a great cost, and no one knows that better than today’s Making Bank guest, Matt Miller.

Matt Miller started his entrepreneurial journey by selling used books out of his garage, before pivoting away from books and starting a hybrid print-media/vending company called School Spirit Vending.

Though successful today, Matt will be the first to admit his business took more than a decade of grueling, grinding work to become a strong, sustainable (and profitable) entity.

From knocking on doors at local strip malls, Matt has successfully spread his operation to more than 35 states, and built a franchise-based model that allows other aspiring entrepreneurs to tap directly into his success by licensing his business.

Tune-in to today’s episode of Making Bank to hear Matt highlight the difficulty of the entrepreneurial journey, and explain why you need to…

•Have the vision to OWN your life

•Swallow your pride to get where you want to be

•Understand the importance of not “prejudging” potential customers

•Work towards a passive income

•Accept that there are NO shortcut to success

•Appreciate the incomparable value of hard work

And much more…

=== SUMMARY ===

Entrepreneurs are often described as visionaries.

The creatives of industry.

The ones with pioneering ideas that can literally change the world.

But visions can’t be stocked on store shelves, or written into industry-improving software.

Being a visionary is only one-half of the entrepreneurial equation.

The other half is action—something today’s guest on Making Bank knows all about.

His name is Mark Winters, and he—along with co-author, Gino Wickman—is the writer behind Rocket Fuel, a book that discusses entrepreneurs as both visionaries and action-takers (or as Mark likes to call them, integrators).

While the visionary-side of entrepreneurship steals the limelight, it’s the integrator-side that actually does the work of transforming visions into realities. And when the visionary and the integrator are paired together, they create the fuel for explosive entrepreneurial growth.

In addition to co-authoring Rocket Fuel, Mark is a certified EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) Implementer, coach, and facilitator, with more than 300 EOS workshops under his belt. Today, his greatest desire is to help every aspiring entrepreneur harness the power of the visionary and the integrator to cultivate true success.

Tune in as Mark Winters and Josh discuss the balance between being a visionary and an integrator, as well as...

•How to assemble a winning team

•Why our systems accelerate our business

•The difference between a visionary and integrator

•Why a visionary and integrator together is ROCKET FUEL for growth in your business

•The scarce commodity of integrators and the hunt for the “right” one

•The importance of having clarity in your vision and goal

•How being on the same page will make you unstoppable

And much more…

=== SUMMARY ===

If there’s one thing every aspiring entrepreneur needs to realize when they’re just getting started it’s this:

Great success is a byproduct of great ambition.

It’s the big, lofty the goals, lead to big entrepreneurial the successes.

The entrepreneurs that “make it”? The ones that grace the cover of Forbes and Fortune? They aren’t the kind of people interested in running the race of business—they’re the men and women who want to WIN the race. They don’t care about setting “realistic” goals, they care about goals that are going to disrupt industries.

It’s a “think-big, win-big” mindset that leads to:

  • More aggressive plans of action for goal-attainment
  • The dismissal of all distractions standing in the way
  • Working with the best people (employees, mentors, etc.)
  • An unwavering, resolute commitment to success

And no one knows the importance of this mindset better than today’s Making Bank guest, Bo Eason—a professional football player, turned acclaimed Broadway playwright, turned personal development coach.

Bo believes great things can only be achieved by building on great dreams. It’s a philosophy that has led him to become one of the most successful personal-development coaches in the United States (his clients include Morgan Stanley and Dimensional Fund Advisors) and an acclaimed scriptwriter, whose Broadway play, Runt of the Litter, was recognized by New York Times as the one of the most powerful scripts of the last decade.

Tune in to hear Bo and Josh talk at-length about the importance of ambition, as well as...

 

  • The value of persistence in the acquisition of success
  • How goal-setting dictates your course of actions
  • The art of distraction elimination
  • Why the personal story is the most powerful tool for any entrepreneur
  • How to seek the best mentors in the world
  • The enigmatic power of your natural voice

And more…

=== SUMMARY ===

 

Whether we're conscious of it or not—we are all moving towards one an end, be it money, power, peace, enlightenment, or something else entirely.

Today's episode on Making Bank isn’t about determining which end goal is better or more noble, it's about learning how to engage in the process of discovery. How to practice mindfulness in order to better understand who we are, what we truly value, and what we want to strive for day in and day out:

What success means to US.

Our guest today knows all about this process. His name is JP Sears, a man whose greatest hope is that people find their true selves by confronting the beliefs that work for and against them.

JP started finding his true self when he was just a teenager. The journey would take him through the complicated world of physical fitness and dietary nutrition (including “the gluten-free breadcrumb trail”) before leading him to his true passion—helping others engage in emotional healing.

Today, JP makes his living as an emotional healing coach who employs comedy and lightheartedness to help his students ask hard questions of themselves.  He’s also an author (How to be Ultra Spiritual) speaker, and world traveler who describes himself as a “curious student of life”. 

Tune in to hear JP talk about his greatest hope, and share thoughts on…

  • How comedy is a vehicle for delivering hard-hitting truths
  • Finding purpose and passion by taking ACTION
  • How to measure TRUE success as an entrepreneur
  • Breaking through the “shadow” side — our egotistical drive and agenda
  • How human inconveniences work FOR us
  • Why you MUST have a self-growth process
  • The strength and courage of embracing vulnerability

And more...

=== SUMMARY ===

 

When it comes to encountering trials and tribulations—it’s not a matter of if, but a question of when. And when those crises come, many of us find ourselves reacting in destructive ways. Ways that are harmful to our business and the people we care about most.

Why does this happen?

It happens because adversity shatters our sense of control. 

A crash in the market? A sudden illness, or tragic accident? The reality is we usually have NO control over the events that cause the most disruption in our lives—the only thing we can control is how we respond. 

And no one knows that better than today’s guest on Making Bank, Hal Elrod.

Adversity first found Hal in the form of a life-changing accident, before finding him again during the global recession of 2008, and each had its own unique set of repercussions for both Hal and his family.

Rather than let these challenges bring him to his knees, Hal accepted his reality, controlled his response, and focused all his energy into staying positive and moving forward.

Since then, he’s authored two books—Taking Life Head On and The Miracle Morning—and become the co-host of the co-host of Best Year Ever Blueprint event. 

He has also become a keynote speaker, business coach, and father of two, with a passion for helping people overcome the adversity in their professional and personal lives.

Tune in as host Josh Felber highlights some of the factors that have contributed to Hal’s success, including...

•The power of enthusiasm and work ethic

•The 5-Minute Rule in responding to adversity

•Morning rituals for the world’s most successful

•Why experiential learning is the deepest level of learning

•How multiple streams of income will save you

And more…

Questions to Ask with Guest Dan Kuschell: MakingBank S2E1

=== SUMMARY ===

 

 

Entrepreneurs like to ask questions because questions (and the answers they lead to) drive destiny.

Where is the opportunity?

When can we get started?

What’s the run-rate?

How much is the overhead?

Why aren’t we effectively speaking to our audience?

Who should we hire next?

These are just a few of the many questions that successful entrepreneurs ask, and ask with regularity.

But there are three questions—ironically the three most-important questions of all—that entrepreneurs always fail to ask themselves.

And entrepreneur’s fail to ask them because they’re scary—they are big, philosophical questions whose answers can lead to rapid pivots and dramatic lifestyle changes:

•What do I WANT?

•What do I STAND FOR?

•Who AM I?

Obtaining the answers to these questions with complete clarity is vital.

Their answers do more than give us insight into our inner-selves, they ultimately determine our destiny.

Sometimes, overcoming the fear to ask the big questions takes an Earth-shattering wake-up call which, for today’s Making Bank guest, came in the form of life-threatening surgery.

With more than 11 successfully launched entrepreneurial ventures, starting with a direct mail campaign in 1992, Dan Kuschell channels an unshakably positive mindset to drive the engine of his professional success. 

Join host Josh Felber, as he asks Dan about the journey from food stamps to fortune, his rebellious personality, and much more, including…

•Why social proof is the world’s greatest sales mechanism

•The addiction of “workaholism”

•How destruction can be the best avenue to greatness

•The incorrectly assumed correlation between skill and success

•And why the NOT-to-do list is the most important list of all

=== SUMMARY ===

Imagine never having the opportunity to know your father—not because he died fighting in some awful, bloody struggle, or became afflicted with some horrific disease—but because he didn’t want to be there.

Now, travel back to your four-year-old self. What if—instead of enjoying trips to the park, or having playtime with your favorite toy—you found yourself changing diapers of and preparing food for your younger siblings?

How would your life be different if you spent earliest years going in and out of foster care?

Or being partially raised by an astoundingly abusive step-father?

Envision how challenging it would be to mentally and physically overcome even one of these barriers to success…

…Could you do it?

Even if you could do it, how would you do it?

Those are questions to keep in mind as you listen to today’s episode of Making Bank with guest Wesley Chapman—a man who overcame all of the aforementioned hurdles (and then some) on the way to becoming an uber-successful entrepreneur and self-described “Humanity Advocate.”

Wesley is a man who believes we all have a unique value proposition to offer the world, it’s just a question of sitting down and actually identifying it—something that (as Wesley freely admits) is easier said than done.

But if you can do it—if you can keep pushing and trying to focus on your unique strength—amazing things will happen.

Tune-in to hear Wesley and Josh cover a number of powerful talking points, including...

  • Wesley’s depression-clad, suicide-attempt-laden childhood
  • The process for identifying your unique gift
  • Modern, unseen threats to the modern family
  • Why proving yourself right is more powerful than proving others wrong
  • How developing a rudimentary understanding (and appreciation) of money at a young age leads to greatness
  • The relationship between success and honesty with oneself
  • Wesley’s involvement with A Human Project

…And much, much more!

=== SUMMARY ===

How are you going to acquire new customers at a reasonable cost?

That—more than anything else—is the question you need to be able to answer as an entrepreneur looking to launch a business that will survive and thrive.

Customer acquisition is everything. It is the lifeblood of every business, be it nascent or fully-developed. Without consistent and reliable new customer acquisition, a business is living with one foot in the grave.  

Contrary to what most entrepreneurs think, customer acquisition doesn’t need to be a profitable enterprise right off the bat. In fact, the most successful customer acquisition campaigns are quite often breakeven, or even negative at the front-end.

Think of it like this—if it costs $1000 to acquire 100 potential customers (leads) for a company, and only 10 (10%) of those leads convert into customers (purchasing a $25 per month subscription-based product), the acquisition cost at the end of month one puts the business $750 in the red.

The customer acquisition cost is NEGATIVE at this stage.

But by the conclusion of month four, the company has reached the breakeven stage, and at the end of the month five the company has made a 25% profit on its initial $1000 investment. Plus, the company gets to hang on to (and continue to market to) the other 90 leads that haven’t become customers yet.

This idea that it’s OK to not run an immediately profitable customer acquisition campaign is just ONE of the many MASSIVE takeaways shared on this week’s episode of Making Bank, where host Josh Felber, sits down with marketing funnel master Todd Brown, of Marketing Funnel Automation.

Inspired by a single piece of direct-response copy he got in the mail, Todd catapulted himself into the world of marketing 15-years ago and never looked back. Today, he’s enamored with the idea of salesmanship multiplied through readily repeatable, automated means that any entrepreneur can use to grow a healthy business.

Listen as Todd and Josh talk at length about a number of incredibly valuable marketing concepts and strategies that every entrepreneur—be they a seasoned veteran or new arrival to the game—needs to know, including…

  • The danger of having ONE of ANYTHING
  • Reasonable customer (lead) acquisition
  • Mom N’ Pop lead acquisition versus savvy lead acquisition versus professional acquisition
  • Why elite marketers are more like prosecutors than salespeople
  • The under-appreciated value of numbers-knowledge
  • And the THREE indispensable keys to a successful front-end funnel build
