Super personal (what to do in the ruts)

Super Personal

This post gets a bit personal… but it’s all true and I think it will help you as you’re slugging it out in the entrepreneurial grind 😉

So last week was rough.

You know how some weeks you feel like no matter what happens it can’t get you down?


Like last week for me, nothing seemed to go right.

Anytime you grow, things are bound to break. Software issues… client issues.

Look just because we’re a bigger company with employees and stuff doesn’t mean things are chill and easy and we don’t ever have to fix things when they’re broken.

Scam #3: Be Everywhere, Do Everything

You’ve probably heard from lot’s of people that in order to grow a successful business and have an impact on social media, you have to ‘be everywhere’. However the Smartest Guys In Marketing believe otherwise as you’ll find out in today’s show.

What You’ll Learn:

  • The quickest way to burn out in your business and how to avoid it
  • How to nurture and grow unbreakable relationship with your leads
  • The solution that will solve all of your roller coaster income troubles
  • Why you should never follow the strategy of a $100 million business
  • Is a banged out Minivan faster than a Tesla Supercar? The answer may surprise you.

Who’s Got The Time Anyway?

In reality, who really has the time to be everywhere on social media? There simply isn’t enough time. The best way to be seen as the expert in your market and grow your business is to dominate one or two platforms. Chris and Taylor’s business weapons of choice have been Facebook and Email.


Once you know where your audience hangs out, focus on mastering that platform and build meaningful relationships with your followers by providing valuable help. Remembering to go deeper rather than wider when it comes to mastering marketing platforms.

What You See Is What You Get

One of the major pillars in building a successful business is authenticity. People want to know there’s a real person sat behind the screen. It’s the reason why Chris and Taylor chose to master Facebook and Email. They work hand in hand at building and nurturing a relationship with your leads.

Do you have a social media strategy? Do you focus your time and energy on two or three platforms, or do you still believe you can ‘be everywhere’ effectively?

Scam #2: More Is Better


Entrepreneurs and Business Owners assume the more choices they offer, the more likely customers will invest in their product or services – and this couldn’t be further from the truth.

On today’s show, the guys shed some light on why you should be focusing on simplicity and clarity rather than adding more to what you’re already offering.

The ‘Why More Is Better’ Scam

It’s a blatant lie that everyone’s falling for and it’s costing you a lot of your hard earned money and valuable time.

Show Highlights:

  • The reason why having multiple offers in your business is actually costing you money [2:40]
  • Why people overcompensates their offers with ‘weak’ bonuses [5:00]
  • Something that’s possibly more important than your ‘to do’ list [7:00]
  • One thing people will pay huge amounts of money for (and it’s not more information) [9:20]

Chris and Taylor are of the strong belief that there’s only a handful of activities in your business that you should be focussing on that actually work. Trying to be everything to everyone – becoming the ‘jack of all trades master of none’ is where the majority of business owners fail.

Once you know what the biggest single problem you can solve, you should be focussing all your time and energy into executing on that. Become the specialist rather than the generalist.

The value no longer lies in more information. In fact, information is now a commodity. You can practically solve all your problems using Google. But what people are really seeking is something that’s crystal clear and easy to understand.

Being able to offer one specific solution to one specific problem is where the value is hidden. In fact Chris and Taylor took their first business to 100k per month in less than 6 months using just two offerings.

But most people are simply afraid of slimming down their offer.

Scam #1: The Ascension Model


How many times have you heard from marketing ‘gurus’ and so called experts that the best way to build a successful and profitable business is to have multiple products at multiple price ranges?

On the surface it seems logical but having more products creates even more problems than you could ever imagine.

And the sad fact is, 95% of entrepreneurs get brainwashed by this massive scam!

In today’s show, Chris and Taylor share with you why using the ascension model in your business is costing you tremendous amounts of time and money. If you’re not familiar with the ascension model, let me get you up to speed…

Essentially, it’s the process of moving your customers from lower cost, less profitable products to higher cost, more profitable ones.

Strapped for time? Here’s some of the show highlights:

  • Why using the ascension model is the longest and most painful way to the revenue you want. [2:00]
  • The reason your business never seems to really ‘take off’ the proverbial business runway (and why others are soaring into the stratosphere). [5:00]
  • Why you’re most probably undercharging for your services and how to fix it [11:40]

Most entrepreneurs and business owners get stuck in the trap of believing that more is better. The more products you have, the bigger your email list is, the more customers you can accommodate and the more profit you can generate.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.

There’s only two things you need to focus on to achieve the business goals you want – and the guys share these with you in this episode.

1 Major Discover (double your client acquisition)

We’ve been testing a lot lately and I’ve gotta say, a couple weeks ago we made a few profound discoveries.

You can listen to me break it down below:


Here’s what I talk about:

  • The ‘secret’ (not really secret) 4 letter word that’s significantly increasing our “believability” in the market right now

  • Why simple marketing is BETTER than complex, complicated, ‘over-the-top’ marketing

  • 1 page we’re using now that our whole funnel revolves around (it’s producing applications for less than 1/3 or what we used to pay for them –
