Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to be successful in online business? Have you ever doubted that you can succeed as an affiliate or run a huge product launch? Do you watch others being successful and think, “that will never be me”? If so, this is for you.
At one time or another, we all have doubts.
We think that we don’t have enough experience. Or that we have the wrong kind.
Is it possible to make a living teaching what you love? How about building a 7-figure income doing so? Oh sure, you know it’s possible…after all, Tony Robbins has done just that. So have countless others. But those are the “special people” right? Wrong. Regular people, just like you and me, are doing exactly that. And today, I’ll show you how you can, too.
I don’t know about you, but often when I see online teachers and “gurus,” one (or more) of four thoughts comes to mind:
- This guy’s a scam artist (and while that is rare, it is sometimes the case).
- This guy is good…so good that I could never be like him.
- I could do that…but why am I not? What does he have that I don’t?
- I wish I knew how to do that.

Expressing your desire for entrepreneurship 15 years ago would have created laughter and an assumption you’re crazy. The tables have turned, and entrepreneurship has become one of the most respected and intelligent paths to take. It’s saved our economy and continues to move our culture forward.
Dream “jobs” are disappearing fast, while creating your ideal opportunity is the new normal. A lot of people are getting into entrepreneurship with a blurred perspective. They think all they need is passion and work ethic. Those people are in for a rough ride, unless they learn these simple yet powerful tactics.
Have you ever thought about starting a business? According to a recent reader and listener survey, nearly 100% of you have. I believe that starting a business can be one of the most exciting, liberating, and fulfilling things you’ll ever do. And it’s a great way to impact the world in a positive way…if you do it right.
Today’s guest has been a part of fifteen startups and has worked with companies ranging from eBay, Oracle, Adobe, Honda, Yahoo, and Apple to numerous small businesses just getting off the ground. He’s a leading expert in helping aspiring business owners to launch the right way.
Have you ever been told to “keep both eyes on the ball”? A friend of mine said that very thing a while back. His business is struggling and he is battling the constant fight to maintain balance between the future (vision) and the present (day-to-day responsibilities). He, and his business it seemed, was at the end of their ropes.
According the Small Business Administration, almost 90% of all businesses in America fail. My friend was about to become a statistic. In today’s episode I share with you what I shared with him.
While it’s geared towards the struggling entrepreneur, it applies to everyone, whether your business is struggling, wildly successful, or you have no business at all.
Can business success lead to business failure? Yes. I’ve allowed it to happen. Seven years removed from my time at one business, I had time to do an autopsy. Here is what I learned.
One of my favorite authors, if you haven’t noticed already is Greg McKeown, author of the book, Essentialism. He writes about what he calls the clarity paradox. The question he asked is:
Why don’t successful people and organizations automatically become very successful?
He then presented four stages which moderately successful business often go through:
Phase 1: When we really have clarity of purpose, it leads to success.
Phase 2:When we have success, it leads to more options and opportunities.
Phase 3:When we have increased options and opportunities, it leads to diffused efforts.
Phase 4:Diffused efforts undermine the very clarity that led to our success in the first place.
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? That is the powerful question that today’s guest asks. Have you ever asked yourself that question?
So, what is it? What is the thing you would do if you knew you could not fail?
Is that what you are doing right now, professionally? What about in your relationships?
Today’s guest is more than a decade younger than me, but I learned a lot from this interview. In fact, I took more notes of my own after listening than I have on any previous interview.
I’ll think you’ll enjoy it and learn a ton as well.
I had an interesting experience a while ago as I left my office for the night. I met a seven-year old who I think embodies what it is to be a World Changer. And she probably doesn’t even know it. This very brief discussion with a seven-year old really lit a fire in me and was one of the inspirations for this podcast.
Seven-year old Jalen asked me, “Do you like Burger King?
I told her that I don’t and she mentioned that she was trying to sell a coupon for a free burger for a dollar.
“Is that for school?” I asked.
“No. I found it in the newspaper and I’m trying to sell it. It’s worth two dollars and I’m going to sell it for a dollar.”
It’s that attitude that I believe more of us need and that’s what I share in today’s podcast.
