=== SUMMARY ===

There is something to be said for having to grow up fast.

For being married at the age of 18, the father of two by the age of 20, and suddenly realizing what it’s like to have the same needs as the typical 40-year old adult before being able to legally buy a beer.

It forces you to either get tough, get savvy, or some combination thereof.

And as it pertains to today’s guest, it was definitely some combination thereof.

This is Jay Abraham, a man who used hunger, necessity, and—in some cases—flat-out desperation to become one of the world’s foremost business authors, entrepreneurial experts, and a trusted confidant to some of the most prominent brands (and executives) on the planet.

As the Founder and CEO of Abraham Group, Inc., Jay solves problems, fixes businesses, and increases bottom lines. To date, Jay has helped more than 10,000 clients, across 400 industries worldwide by studying their problems and offering paradigm-shifting solutions.

Jay’s “funnel vision versus tunnel vision” concept—which is about borrowing high-value ideas from one industry and applying them to another in a strategic way—is his pièce de résistance, and the single-most valuable practice he has applied to help his clients for more than 30 years.

Today, Jay is widely-recognized as one of the world’s Top 10 marketing minds, as well as a true innovator of revenue model and business model generation. That expertise is largely the reason he has been featured in countless publications including, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and USA Today.

So, with all of that said, join host Josh Felber, on this week’s episode of Making Bank, to hear Jay’s remarkable story of success first-hand, and better understand some of his critical business insights, including…

  • Why “trust” is the most-valuable asset any business can have
  • How to ride emotional peaks and valleys to invaluable truths
  • The two distinct-types of client
  • Why preeminence outweighs strategy
  • The hidden value of helping employees grow
  • How to have a higher love for your clients

…And much, MUCH more.

Learning How to Market Yourself with Guest Ed O’Keefe: MakingBank S1E53

=== SUMMARY ===

Imagine being dead broke (or maybe you don’t have to imagine it because you’ve lived it).

Imagine the fear. The anxiety. The looming dread of—is this it for me as an entrepreneur?

What would you do in that situation? Would you throw in the towel, go get a “regular” job, and settle in for 40+ years of the 9 to 5 grind?

Or would you keep pushing the envelope? Keep chipping away at the idea-block until—one day—you cracked the code of success?

It might sound like a feel-good Hollywood drama, but it’s not—it’s the real-life story of serial entrepreneur Ed O’Keefe, a Southside Chicago-kid who went from worrying about his last few hundred bucks in the bank to launching multiple seven (and even eight!) figure businesses like Marine D-3 and InspiredWear.

Ed’s story is a story familiar to so many other successful entrepreneurs. A story where idea after idea fails to get off the ground, not because the ideas aren’t good, but because the idea-maker doesn’t know how to market, promote, and sell themselves.

It took Ed years of struggle to learn how to promote himself, and find his professional niche as a marketer, but since finding it he hasn’t looked back.

Today, he’s more than a super successful-entrepreneur, he’s also a business owner, business strategy coach, consultant, advisor, TV show host, author, husband, and proud father of seven.

His latest accomplishment, Time Collapsing—The New Art of Speed, Money, Power, and Meaning, is an in-depth exploration of the behind-the-scenes system, Ed has used to sell almost $100,000,000 in services, consulting, supplements, seminars, and informational products.

Sit-down and strap-in for an entertaining exchange between Ed and Making Bank host, Josh Felber, as they cover critical concepts every aspiring entrepreneur needs to know.

Concepts like…

•The value of teaching others how to make money

•Living with purposeful intent

•Why “having goals” is overvalued

•Hours worked does NOT tie into success

•The danger of getting stuck “in” problems

•Why now is the best-time EVER to become successful

 

…And much, MUCH more.

The Art of Copywriting with Guest Craig Clemens: MakingBank S1E52

=== SUMMARY ===

As a successful entrepreneur, I know the importance of high-quality copywriting.

From in-store signage, to long-form sales letters, the right words delivered in the right order can transform an ice-cold prospect into a life-long customer.

Now, that might feel like an exaggeration, but any businessman (or woman) worth their salt knows exactly what I mean.

Which is why I’m so fired-up to invite one of the very best copywriters on the planet—Craig Clemens—onto today’s episode of Making Bank.

Craig, like so many other successful professionals, went to the school of hard-knocks to get his entrepreneurial education, spending years working one of the toughest, most humbling jobs on the planet—telemarketing sales.

Did he like it? Of course not. But he did it because he had bills to pay and lessons to learn. 

Eventually, Craig got bored of hawking drill bits and credit cards over the phone. He hung-up his headset for good to go write copy for his longtime friend, Eban Pagan, who had been making more than $10,000 a month selling dating-advice ebooks.

In addition to the guidance he would receive from Eban, Craig meticulously studied the work of copywriting legends like Kennedy, Halbert, Hopkins, and Collier. Craig practiced and refined, practiced and refined, practiced and refined, until he became a true master of the craft.

Now Craig runs his own copywriting agency, and produces some of the most successful sales copy in digital business. In fact, over the last two years, Craig has written three of the four biggest direct to consumer campaigns on the internet, one of which reeled 33,600 new customers in just two days.

Tune in to today’s episode to hear Josh and Craig, share a number of fantastic insights, including:

  • The four keys to effective copywriting.
  • Why being dead broke and behind on your taxes is a bad thing—but not the worst thing.
  • How to use diverse professional experiences to your entrepreneurial advantage.
  • The importance of learning to get in the mindset of your customer.
  • Why talking to your customer like a companion is the most effective way to form a bond.

Hustling as an Entrepreneur with Guest Clark Benson: MakingBank S1E51

=== SUMMARY ===

There is one element to the art of entrepreneurship that isn’t artistic at all…hustle.

Hustle is something that can’t be coached, refined, or enhanced—it’s bred.

You either have hustle or you don’t, and if you want to be an entrepreneur, you had better hope you’re not in the latter camp.

In the world of business and money-making, hustle will make up for just about anything.

Lack of knowledge? Absent credentials? Lousy network? Missing expertise? Low capital?

Whatever the obstacle, enough hustle can get you up and over the wall. 

And it’s with the idea and importance of hustle in mind that we are excited to introduce today’s guest on Making Bank—Clark Benson—a man who’s no stranger early mornings, late nights, and 80+ hour work weeks.

Clark’s interest in entrepreneurship began to surface in his early 20s when he enrolled in the only entrepreneurship class at the University of Illinois. By 1995—at the age of 27—he was starting his first company, a music marketing business, and by 1999 he was capitalizing on the dot-com boom with an online dating business, eCrush.

When dot-coms went dot-bust in 2001, eCrush survived the collapse thanks to a heavy dose of Clark’s legendary hustle, and would later be sold in 2006 to the Hearst Corporation. Today, Clark works as the founder and CEO of Ranker, a leading digital media company that specializes in crowdsourced rankings.

Tune in to today’s episode to hear Josh and Clark, share a number of fantastic insights, including:

  • How to evaluate the risks and rewards of working with a co-founder
  • Why hustle is the most important ingredient for success
  • What to do when timing is not in your favor
  • The importance of zeroing-in when it’s time to scale
  • Why business should never come at the expense of your children

=== SUMMARY ===

Everyone knows about the hustle and grit entrepreneurs need to make it to the top, but what about the experience?

What about the knowledge?

How much could you and your business benefit from a learning session with someone who’s led multimillion dollar companies, directly consulted for one of the four largest wireless carriers in the United States, and helped a monarch manage their wealth?

If your answer is anything other than “a LOT,” you’re lying to yourself.

And that’s why today on Making Bank, we’re excited to welcome best-selling author, and business growth guru Cameron Herold to the program.

Cameron is the entrepreneurs’ entrepreneur. A man who earned his MBA, not in the classroom, but in the real-world, by transforming College Pro Painters into a semi-casual operation into a multi-million-dollar, nation-wide juggernaut.

Though most famous for his work as COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and his best-selling books Double, Double and Meetings Suck, Cameron is neither an executive nor author at heart—he is a teacher.

Someone who wants to help aspiring entrepreneurs and struggling business owners learn how to tighten up their businesses every year so they can move forward by driving long-term exponential growth.

Tune-in to today’s episode as Josh and Cameron converse on some amazing subjects, including:

  • How to cultivate a winning company culture
  • Why rapid growth and fiscal strength do not ensure invincibility
  • Why understanding the balance sheet cannot be under-appreciated
  • How to identify what’s driving the flywheel so those driving factors can be nurtured and grown
  • Why you can’t build every aspect of your business
  • When it pays to be the dumbest person in the room

Being an Entrepreneur with Guest Brad Costanzo: MakingBank S1E49

=== SUMMARY ===

What nut are you trying to crack in your business?

When staring down the barrel of opportunity, that’s the question any entrepreneurial minded person needs to be asking.

Whether the “business” is your own venture or someone else’s, it undoubtedly has problems that need solving, and those problems are the nuts. Find a way to crack them, and the money will flow generously. 

Entrepreneurs don’t avoid problems, they don’t shy away from challenges—they actively seek them out, because it’s in the problems and the challenges that the rewards lie.

Rewards like generous proposals of investment, and lucrative buy-out offers.

Entrepreneurs know the ability to ask deep, penetrating questions—questions that flag major pain-points of a company, an industry, or an individual—is far more valuable than the ability to provide quick answers.

People don’t pay for patches, they pay for long-term solutions to sources inefficiency. But before those solutions can be offered, the inefficiencies must be clearly stated in no uncertain terms.

And that’s what today’s guest on Making Bank—Brad Costanzo—is a master of.

In addition to being the founder and owner of several companies including, Bacon Wrapped Business, Costanzo Marketing, and Stiletto Coffee, Brad is the man who knows how to find a client’s true pain-point and resolve it.

As an uber-successful entrepreneur, Brad’s philosophy is simple:

Want to be successful? Change your mindset to actively seek out problems. Don’t worry about being able to solve them—you can pay someone else to do that.

Listen as Brad shares the details of his incredibly entrepreneurial journey, and offers key insights including:

  • The difference between being an entrepreneur and entrepreneurial-minded
  • Why failure and losing everything shouldn’t be a deterrent from getting back in the entrepreneurial game
  • How to actively seek out problems rather than avoid them
  • Why entrepreneurs make terrible employees

Outsourcing and Hiring with Guest Bonnie Fahy: MakingBank S1E48

=== SUMMARY ===

Entrepreneurs fight a number of battles.

But the one opponent we fight more than any other is time.

Whether arrived or aspiring, all entrepreneurs struggle against time.

The all-encompassing hustle and grind of starting and scaling a business cannibalizes free-time at a furious pace—a pace that is both unsustainable and unhealthy.

To reclaim time from the jaws of business—to get it back so it can be spent with friends and family as opposed to work—requires something hustle and determination can’t provide:

Help.

The key to schedule expansion is the strategic enlistment of help.

Unfortunately, help isn’t always an easy thing to come by. Employees are expensive and, for most entrepreneurs just getting started, out of the question.

And that’s where outsourcing comes into the picture.

Almost anything can be outsourced, from individual tasks to BIG complicated projects.

Data entry, email management, blog writing, website construction—it can all be passed on to someone else.

As entrepreneurs, taking advantage of outsourcing is essential. It is the key to creating additional bandwidth where none could otherwise exist.

Determining what to outsource is easy—hire-out everything that is beyond your area of expertise, so you can devote your entire focus to that expertise and the revenue it generates.

But who to outsource to, and how to hire them, isn’t as cut and dry.

How do you find the right person, pay them fairly, and ensure they’re getting the work done all at the same time?

To help us answer that question (and countless others), please welcome Bonnie Fahy onto this episode of Making Bank.

Bonnie is a former balloon artists (seriously!) turned uber-successful entrepreneur who used trial and error, coupled with a fortuitous experience in Las Vegas, to discover the secret to wealth isn’t rooted in what you can do, it’s rooted in what you can get other people to do for you.

Today, Bonnie’s company Source It, helps businesses pioneer more effective processes and generate better returns using both domestic and overseas outsourcing.

Listen as Bonnie as she shares dynamite insights, including: 

  • Why owning a clear inventory of your time is essential to determining what you can outsource
  • How “hybridsoucring” works
  • Why stubbornness can pay
  • How to determine what needs to be outsourced versus what needs to be kept internal

Confronting Unhappiness with Guest Suresh May: MakingBank S1E47

=== SUMMARY ===

How are you doing today?

It should be an easy question to answer.

It is simple, straightforward, and unencumbered.

But if you’re like most people, you find how are you doing today to be an impossible challenge.

Rather than come to terms with the unhappiness, depression, or boredom plaguing your life, you lie.

You say, I’m great! Or I’m fine, thanks!

When the truth is—you’re not great, and you’re not fine.  You’re hiding behind a mask of falseness out of fear…

…A fear of facing down your demons.

And that’s a self-defeating practice because putting an end to your unhappiness starts with acknowledgement.

Publically accept your unhappiness and then start making strides towards a mindset shift, with the understanding that unhappiness isn’t derived from the situation you’re facing, it’s derived from how you perceive that situation.

Perspective alters mood, not circumstance, which means happiness can only be achieved from the inside out.

And it’s that notion of perspective versus circumstance we want you to keep in mind as we welcome today’s guest, Suresh May, onto Making Bank.

Suresh is a 3x bestselling author, Forex advisor, copywriter, and the owner of Wealth Weekly—a company that helps successful entrepreneurs demonstrate how they made (and kept) their wealth. The key to Suresh’s entrepreneurial success is no secret—it’s his unabashed honesty.

Suresh doesn’t lie to himself, and if you want to be successful, he doesn’t think you should either.

If you don’t know what you want to do professionally, own the uncertainty. Do not try to deny it by settling on a path that makes other people in your life happy.

If your business is failing, admit it and move on. Do not try to keep a doomed enterprise afloat out of fear of failure.

If you’re a newbie to an industry, embrace the title of novice. Do not try to pretend you’re an expert, just be humble and learn.

Listen as Suresh shares these and other powerful insights, including: 

  • Why missing out on important memories as a parent can be necessary though not ideal
  • How “jobs” can be used as quick conduits to startup capital
  • Why two-step marketing plans coupled with information products are where the real money is
  • The two-keys to writing truly effective marketing copy

Whether you own an unshakable believe in a particular organized religion, or don’t buy into any of the commonly prescribed faiths, many of us can at least agree there is some sort of higher power.

A force (to borrow a term from Star Wars) that influences and permeates everything we do.

A belief that enables us to move forward every day, no matter the ups and downs we face.

An inspiration that allows us to seek out something greater than money, or fame, or glory…

…something that gets us out from that desk and into the world so we can enjoy life rather than be slaves to our success.

But don’t be fooled, this isn’t going to be an easy conversation—this is a difficult topic to broach.

People get really uncomfortable when the conversation shifts to discussions of faith, and higher powers, and moral obligations to our fellow humans.

But the reality is we need to dive headlong into this subject, uncomfortable though it may be, because it’s through this subject that we can start answering much more important questions:

What was I put on this Earth to do? What great purpose is mine to fulfil?

Because when we start answering those questions, we start making real, impactful change in the world that surrounds us.

Which is why we are fired-up to invite today’s guest, Perry Marshall, onto Making Bank.

Perry is an author, speaker, and world-renowned business consultant with a penchant for success that’s derived from a willingness to look at big topics—like evolution versus creationism—just a little bit differently. During the interview, Perry will explain why now more than ever entrepreneurs are feeling the pressure of evolution, and why that pressure inspired him to write his latest book, Evolution 2.0.

Listen as Perry shares a slew of powerful insights, including:

  • How to radically pivot careers with ease and success
  • Why pressure plus time is the catalyst for transformative change
  • How to develop a primal, gut-level feel about what’s happening in different marketplaces
  • Why you’ve got to be willing to occasionally embrace the nutty ideas

Getting Celebrity Status with Guest Rob Kosberg: MakingBank S1E45

December 26, 2016

MAKING BANK is now a weekly YouTube TV show / iTunes Podcast full of #Success and #Business with Josh.

=== SUMMARY ===

If there’s one thing more valuable than the money in your bank account and a clean bill of health from the doctor, it’s your status.

The status you own in your community and your network is worth its weight in gold.

And the closer you can inch toward the pinnacle of status—celebrity status—the more likely you are to enjoy constantly opening doors.

Celebrity status isn’t a joke, and it isn’t something to be undervalued—it’s a commodity as precious as any other. It is the means through which you assert your brand and position yourself as an expert. And if you can do that effectively, you’ll be in prime position to reel in the high-value clients, and the big dollars that come with them.

So how does a coach, a consultant, or a budding entrepreneur actually assert their brand, and earn that expert, celebrity status?

You guessed it—a best-selling book.

And nobody knows best-selling books better than today’s guest on Making Bank, 2x international best-selling author, Rob Kosberg.

Rob is one of those rare entrepreneurs with the dynamism and tenacity to make his millions in one industry, before radically (and successfully) pivoting to another. 

Following decades of success in the real estate game, Rob found himself cutoff at the knees by the crash of 2008. Rather than condemn his professional legacy to a slow and painful death, Rob rebooted with Best Seller Publishing in 2011, a company that helps aspiring authors not only write, but market and distribute their books so they can achieve best-seller status. 

Today’s show will not only illustrate the ins and outs of what it takes to not develop and market a best-selling book, it will also highlight how entrepreneurs can learn from the mistakes of others to pave smoother roads towards success. 

Listen as Rob shares a slew of powerful insights:

  • How you can create authority with a book
  • What it takes to earn status and get on the map
  • The art of lead generation
  • What it takes to endure a soul-crushing, bankroll reducing economic downturn and come out on the other side with a WIN
  • Why the book is the new business card
  • The 3-reasons everyone who wants to be someone should have a book
  • Why creating a dinky little 30-page eBook isn’t worth your time and effort when compared to creating a proper book
