NOTE: THE PATH IS ADVANCED COACHING FOR ENTREPRENEURS COMING UP ON ITS 3RD YEAR ANNIVERSARY AND IS OFFICIALLY LAUNCHING TO THE PUBLIC. MY PROMISE IN THIS PROGRAM IS TO DOUBLE, TRIPLE, OR EVEN QUADRUPLE YOUR REVENUE (OR PROFIT) IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS. IF YOU HAVE A SMALL, MEDIUM, OR LARGE BUSINESS AND WANT TO GROW RAPIDLY, READ ON TO SEE IF THIS GROUP IS A FIT FOR YOU:


I don't know about you but when I started my Entrepreneurial journey -- I had a thought in my mind playing on repeat:


"I'm worth so much more than I'm demonstrating."

I couldn't understand why I wasn't getting anywhere.

I thought "I'm smarter than this... why can't I figure this out?" or "I work harder than that guy, why is he making the money and I'm not!?"

I quickly learned it wasn’t a mindset problem or a strategy problem…


It was both.


You see, we all start in this valley. And every valley has a mountain. Some of us weird, crazy, entrepreneurial folks decide “I need to go climb that mountain.”

And when you do – it feels like the whole world is against you, doesn’t it?

Your closest friends and family tell you things you wouldn’t say to your worst enemy.

“You should just give up and go back to school.”

“Don’t you think you should get a job?”

“That’s way too risky, but it’s a cute hobby you have.”

I’ll never forget the night I was doing my end-of-year accounting and was all excited when I saw what we had pulled in that year: $1.8 million dollars.

That money didn’t mean a Lamborghini to me. It didn’t mean a mansion. It meant I could take care of my mother. That’s all I ever wanted.

I had moved her in with me at that point and when I ran across to her own ‘wing’ to show her “what her little boy had done,” she broke my heart with just a few words…


“That’s nice but it won’t last. You should probably go to school.”


I was devastated.

It felt like all my hard work over the last 7 years had been pointless.

And if I’m being honest -- those 7 years were hell.

I was homeless for 2 of them.

I worked 5 jobs after that.

I slept 2 hours a night.

After 28 attempts I finally convinced someone to co-sign for my loan from the bank to open the business.

I worked even harder. 18 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I paid off the 5-year $100,000 loan in 6 months.

I had built one of the biggest businesses of its category in the country.

I felt like I had made it.

And looking back at it now, I simply wanted the acceptance that I wasn’t going to get no matter what I did.

It wasn’t her fault. She was conditioned from birth to think these thoughts. She was SCRIPTED.

And here’s what I learned:


In life, there are people stuck in the valley, and then there are climbers like you and I… destined to walk The Path.


The Path of the entrepreneur.

I think everyone hears the call at some point in their lives… but most choose to ignore it.

I’m guessing if you’re still reading this silly monologue that you’ve heard that call, too… haven’t you?

I don’t know if I can explain it, but it’s that silent feeling inside of you that says, “I must go. I must grow. I must try. I must win. I must build. I must succeed.”

No matter the cost.

The hard part mentally and emotionally is that your friends and family will say and do things to dissuade you.

Why?

It’s not because they want to see you fail. It’s because they’re scared of losing you. They know that if you go climb that mountain, you’re never coming back.

And even if you physically come back, you’re going to be a completely different person.

See, all communication in life is either a loving response or a cry for help.

And when people say these seemingly horrible things about your dreams and building your business it really has nothing to do with you and it has everything to do with their insecurities -- and that feeling of loss is almost akin to death!

So people will lash out or even attack you simply because they don’t want to see you leave that comfort zone where you’re safe.

It’s scary, dangerous, and lonely on that mountain – and you’re going to have to climb it alone.

But that’s why I’m here with you today:


You don’t have to walk The Path alone ever again.


We’re coming up on the 3-year anniversary of a private coaching program I developed to help entrepreneurs like you and I reach the top of their own personal mountain.

We do that with proven strategies, world-class marketing, and unrivaled psychology training.

And to shoot you straight, the reason I’m posting this marketplace ad is… I’ve finally grown the balls to open it up to the public.

I won’t bore you with my story but for those of you who don’t know, after I sold that first business and built 2 more I became the number one coach and speaker for Tony Robbins.

In the course of my own private consulting and my work as a business strategist for the big guy I’ve now successfully worked with – and turned around – over 3,000 different businesses.

From many of the Fortune 500 companies down to the local mom and pop shops.

… in every industry you can imagine.

And I don’t want to tell you this to pound on my chest and tell you how great I am, I tell you this because…


At this point, I’d have to be an IDIOT to not see what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to growing your business.


And it doesn’t take a million things – only a few.

Hell, Peter Drucker said business is only two things: innovation and marketing.

I’d argue the last piece is psychology – getting yourself to actually follow through and take massive action on what you know you should be doing…

But most entrepreneurs fight their environment or an unsupportive spouse.

They try to climb that mountain but the constant pull of friends, family, and the extremely normal setbacks are usually enough to keep them feeling like they’ve got one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake!


That changes NOW.


I’m looking for climbers.

Dreamers who want to not just climb their own personal mountain but become a part of a supportive community of other people who are on The Path as well.

If that’s you – I will personally work with you in your business to help you double, triple, or even quadruple your revenue (or profit) in the next 12 months.

And it’s going to cost you a whopping…


“Tens of dollars”


(That’s an insider joke here on the forum, don’t worry if you don’t get it… I’m simply saying if you want to join The Path, it’s relatively inexpensive)

Business owners understand there is no such thing as “too expensive” or “not expensive”, they think In terms of Return on Investment.

“Hey friend, give me $10,000 today and I’ll make sure you earn an extra $100,000 this year!” … would you make that trade?

Of course, it’s a dumb question. You wouldn’t say “would I make that trade,” you’d say “how many times can I do it!?”

KA-CHING, KA-CHING, KA-CHING, baby, let’s GO!

But that ROI is an example of your marketing and advertising (which is something I’m going to personally help you build in The Path – in fact, it’s my specialty. Creating strategic marketing campaigns that work in hundreds of different industries).

You’ll even get access to the templates and frameworks I used over and over again to multiply revenues for all kinds of businesses.

Not to mention…


Real Strategies that WORK.


Innovation is a scary word for most people in business.

Once you get a product up and selling, many people get scared to change anything…

But if you’re not consistently innovating ways to improve your customers and clients’ lives – their experience with you – you’re quickly going out of business.

That’s why a major focus in The Path is twofold:

How do I constantly and never-endingly improve the quality of my clients lives with new products, services, and innovation…

AND

How do I create RAVING FANS.

Why raving fans?

Because in this new world economy – what we call “economic winter” – you can no longer have satisfied customers… satisfied customers will leave you.

Raving fans will stay – and they’ll bring all their friends.


We’re going to develop rock-solid internal and external communication with your customers so that people FEEL wanted, needed, and appreciated.

And when you give them those EXPERIENCES – they’ll come back again and again.

That’s how you build a real BUSINESS (not just a transaction or some one-time free-lancing job).


Finally, the Psychology.


This is the challenging part to talk about with high achievers like yourself…

Why?

We think if we just knew that secret strategy or that tactic – we’d become successful…

But let me shoot you straight:

Your best level of thinking got you to where you are today.

It will not get you to where you want to be.

If it would, you would already be there.



And this is not a judgement.


It’s simply my deep understanding of psychology these days. I’ve been obsessed with it, and I’ve even had the honor and privilege to have been personally coached by the greatest who has ever lived in this area.

You know what it costs to get a 1-on-1 with my “boss” ?

1 million dollars.

And there’s a 4-year waiting list.

I’ve been held to rigorous standards to reach this level. I’ve been given the “seal of approval” AND completed countless interventions in every context.

I can get you to take action.

We – TOGETHER – can get you the life and business of your dreams.

But they say the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

It’s time for you to take the first step.

Join The Path with me and we’ll walk it together.

- Steve



P.S. You’re probably are wondering “what you get” with The Path…



I get so excited about this stuff I left out some of the details.

You can see them all here on the landing page.

But to give you an idea, here’s how The Path works:

  • Each Month there will be a “Lesson of the month” – Strategies to plug and play into your business to get you from where you are to where you want to be. It could be business planning, launching new products, marketing campaigns, cart abandonment recovery, and more. I’ve essentially identified 13 things that if you implement one per month, it would be damn near impossible NOT to at least double your revenue that year.

  • Each WEEK we have a coaching and accountability call – Every Friday 10am PST / 12pm CST / 1pm EST we do an “end of week” business hours call to recap victories for the week and a quick mini-lesson as well as “open consulting”. You can bring me your landing pages, product listings, email sequences, sales scripts, or whatever else you’re working on and not just get MY feedback, but feedback from the entire group. The challenge most entrepreneurs face is they are ONE person trying to solve TWELVE problems. We want at least TWELVE people solving ONE problem. THAT is how you make real progress.

  • Ask a Coach – this is a simply way for you and I to communicate. It’s your time to be selfish and ask specific questions about your marketing, strategy, or if you have a challenge personally we can walk through it together. You’ll have access to me essentially 24/7 for a fraction of what it normally costs (my keynote speeches alone are $20,000 for an hour these days and as a consultant I charged $4,800 a month minimum for once a week consulting to give you perspective).

  • Our private group – this is where an enormous amount of value is. A paid mastermind does many things but one of the best things is it keeps the riff-raff out and the serious people engaged.

  • The Study Vault – Inside the Study Vault I built, you’ll get access to countless hours of training and programs but more importantly, this is where I store my email templates, marketing campaigns that didn’t hundreds of thousands (and two of them, millions) of dollars in revenue over the course of just a few days. If you’re ever at a loss for best practices when building a sales page, writing copy, creating a dynamite product listing, or more – you’ll find it here.


If this sounds pretty good, you’ll want to read all of the details here to make sure it’s right for you.


I look forward to serving you.

Your life and your business is a bout to change.

You are the hero on The Path.

I’m simply the guide.

Don’t stay lost.

As an extreme skeptic and avid Tony "disliker", I was reluctant to join The Path despite @Kung Fu Steve constantly pushing me.

I finally relented about a year ago, and can say it changed my business.

It changed the way I thought about myself, exposed my personal limitations, and pushed me to go to the next level.

In the midst of covid, my business grew about 30%, my net worth more than doubled, and my lifestyle has dramatically improved (and it was good before).

Much of this I attribute to the mental changes that occurred in me while on the weekly Path calls.

Highly recommended.

Man.. I had some baby successes, I was kind of on the right track..

But I didn’t really start thinking fully Fastlane until I linked up with Steve

If you’ve been to any Fastlane events you have felt the power of meeting with YOUR PEOPLE! Only problem is, a week later the sizzle from the event dies down.. and we all go back to our bubbles and old habits

This is the easiest, cheapest way to meet weekly with a group of leaders & achievers who will help you get to the next level.. and keep you accountable to do it. Enough said

If you’re on the fence, dm me, happy to chat about my experience with this group

I wanted to add in here as well.

I started with the Path Calls when they first came out but fell off at some point. About 6 Months ago I got back in and I am really glad I did. Those calls have been a staple of my week.

KFS knows a lot about the mind and business (we have partnered together in the past) so I know when he is in teacher mode he knows what he is talking about. The calls, to me, mean more than just getting a changed focus or a deeper understanding of why we do what we do, they calls became the perfect community.

We all need that human connection now more than ever, and especially the type of connections that help you focus on the right things in this environment vs all the wrong things that are easily available.

So put 9-12 other entrepreneurs on a call together, every week, and invest them in each others Path's and you get a perfect cocktail of an environment where everyone is going to grow and get the support they need, when they need it.

The catch? You have to speak up! If you say nothing and do nothing... nothing changes.

This was the same thing that got me back on "The Path" was "dialing" back in to the matrix 6 months ago and getting back into that forever growing state that we all need to be in to be happy and move forward.

It was time for me to step up... and that's exactly what I did. YMMV

Steve helped me overcome my biggest obstacle ...... me.

When I joined, I was gung ho. "We are going to 4x this business, woo woo." First few calls were touchy feely crap about me and my mindset and how I thought about things and what was important in my life.

Stupid shit (so I thought). I wanted a 'step by step sales plan'. I wanted 'the big secret'. I nearly bounced.

Glad I didn't. I was wrong. The 'big secret' was I was the problem. I was the one holding me back.

My life changed. I got true perspective. MOST importantly, I got out of my own way.

Results:

Original business .... from (July 2018) $687k /yr and a 'me dependent' business with me working 60 hours a week to (April 2021) $956k / yr with my team running the business and me working 24 hours a week.
[That itself would have been enough of an ROI to sign up.]

With the extra time (and new mindset):
I am teaching university courses and doing well (was always my end goal).
Started a new business with one of my graduates.
Working on buying another group of businesses.
More healthy than I have ever been.
Clarity in my life.
Relationships better across the board.

The coolest thing about it, I have a group of people that I get on a call with each week that care about me. Enough to hug me when I need a hug. Enough to kick my a$$ when I need a boost. That is truly priceless.

Sign up. Now. Feel free to dm me as well.

NOTE: THE PATH IS ADVANCED COACHING FOR ENTREPRENEURS COMING UP ON ITS 3RD YEAR ANNIVERSARY AND IS OFFICIALLY LAUNCHING TO THE PUBLIC. MY PROMISE IN THIS PROGRAM IS TO DOUBLE, TRIPLE, OR EVEN QUADRUPLE YOUR REVENUE (OR PROFIT) IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS. IF YOU HAVE A SMALL, MEDIUM, OR LARGE BUSINESS AND WANT TO GROW RAPIDLY, READ ON TO SEE IF THIS GROUP IS A FIT FOR YOU:


I don't know about you but when I started my Entrepreneurial journey -- I had a thought in my mind playing on repeat:


"I'm worth so much more than I'm demonstrating."

I couldn't understand why I wasn't getting anywhere.

I thought "I'm smarter than this... why can't I figure this out?" or "I work harder than that guy, why is he making the money and I'm not!?"

I quickly learned it wasn’t a mindset problem or a strategy problem…


It was both.


You see, we all start in this valley. And every valley has a mountain. Some of us weird, crazy, entrepreneurial folks decide “I need to go climb that mountain.”

And when you do – it feels like the whole world is against you, doesn’t it?

Your closest friends and family tell you things you wouldn’t say to your worst enemy.

“You should just give up and go back to school.”

“Don’t you think you should get a job?”

“That’s way too risky, but it’s a cute hobby you have.”

I’ll never forget the night I was doing my end-of-year accounting and was all excited when I saw what we had pulled in that year: $1.8 million dollars.

That money didn’t mean a Lamborghini to me. It didn’t mean a mansion. It meant I could take care of my mother. That’s all I ever wanted.

I had moved her in with me at that point and when I ran across to her own ‘wing’ to show her “what her little boy had done,” she broke my heart with just a few words…


“That’s nice but it won’t last. You should probably go to school.”


I was devastated.

It felt like all my hard work over the last 7 years had been pointless.

And if I’m being honest -- those 7 years were hell.

I was homeless for 2 of them.

I worked 5 jobs after that.

I slept 2 hours a night.

After 28 attempts I finally convinced someone to co-sign for my loan from the bank to open the business.

I worked even harder. 18 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I paid off the 5-year $100,000 loan in 6 months.

I had built one of the biggest businesses of its category in the country.

I felt like I had made it.

And looking back at it now, I simply wanted the acceptance that I wasn’t going to get no matter what I did.

It wasn’t her fault. She was conditioned from birth to think these thoughts. She was SCRIPTED.

And here’s what I learned:


In life, there are people stuck in the valley, and then there are climbers like you and I… destined to walk The Path.


The Path of the entrepreneur.

I think everyone hears the call at some point in their lives… but most choose to ignore it.

I’m guessing if you’re still reading this silly monologue that you’ve heard that call, too… haven’t you?

I don’t know if I can explain it, but it’s that silent feeling inside of you that says, “I must go. I must grow. I must try. I must win. I must build. I must succeed.”

No matter the cost.

The hard part mentally and emotionally is that your friends and family will say and do things to dissuade you.

Why?

It’s not because they want to see you fail. It’s because they’re scared of losing you. They know that if you go climb that mountain, you’re never coming back.

And even if you physically come back, you’re going to be a completely different person.

See, all communication in life is either a loving response or a cry for help.

And when people say these seemingly horrible things about your dreams and building your business it really has nothing to do with you and it has everything to do with their insecurities -- and that feeling of loss is almost akin to death!

So people will lash out or even attack you simply because they don’t want to see you leave that comfort zone where you’re safe.

It’s scary, dangerous, and lonely on that mountain – and you’re going to have to climb it alone.

But that’s why I’m here with you today:


You don’t have to walk The Path alone ever again.


We’re coming up on the 3-year anniversary of a private coaching program I developed to help entrepreneurs like you and I reach the top of their own personal mountain.

We do that with proven strategies, world-class marketing, and unrivaled psychology training.

And to shoot you straight, the reason I’m posting this marketplace ad is… I’ve finally grown the balls to open it up to the public.

I won’t bore you with my story but for those of you who don’t know, after I sold that first business and built 2 more I became the number one coach and speaker for Tony Robbins.

In the course of my own private consulting and my work as a business strategist for the big guy I’ve now successfully worked with – and turned around – over 3,000 different businesses.

From many of the Fortune 500 companies down to the local mom and pop shops.

… in every industry you can imagine.

And I don’t want to tell you this to pound on my chest and tell you how great I am, I tell you this because…


At this point, I’d have to be an IDIOT to not see what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to growing your business.


And it doesn’t take a million things – only a few.

Hell, Peter Drucker said business is only two things: innovation and marketing.

I’d argue the last piece is psychology – getting yourself to actually follow through and take massive action on what you know you should be doing…

But most entrepreneurs fight their environment or an unsupportive spouse.

They try to climb that mountain but the constant pull of friends, family, and the extremely normal setbacks are usually enough to keep them feeling like they’ve got one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake!


That changes NOW.


I’m looking for climbers.

Dreamers who want to not just climb their own personal mountain but become a part of a supportive community of other people who are on The Path as well.

If that’s you – I will personally work with you in your business to help you double, triple, or even quadruple your revenue (or profit) in the next 12 months.

And it’s going to cost you a whopping…


“Tens of dollars”


(That’s an insider joke here on the forum, don’t worry if you don’t get it… I’m simply saying if you want to join The Path, it’s relatively inexpensive)

Business owners understand there is no such thing as “too expensive” or “not expensive”, they think In terms of Return on Investment.

“Hey friend, give me $10,000 today and I’ll make sure you earn an extra $100,000 this year!” … would you make that trade?

Of course, it’s a dumb question. You wouldn’t say “would I make that trade,” you’d say “how many times can I do it!?”

KA-CHING, KA-CHING, KA-CHING, baby, let’s GO!

But that ROI is an example of your marketing and advertising (which is something I’m going to personally help you build in The Path – in fact, it’s my specialty. Creating strategic marketing campaigns that work in hundreds of different industries).

You’ll even get access to the templates and frameworks I used over and over again to multiply revenues for all kinds of businesses.

Not to mention…


Real Strategies that WORK.


Innovation is a scary word for most people in business.

Once you get a product up and selling, many people get scared to change anything…

But if you’re not consistently innovating ways to improve your customers and clients’ lives – their experience with you – you’re quickly going out of business.

That’s why a major focus in The Path is twofold:

How do I constantly and never-endingly improve the quality of my clients lives with new products, services, and innovation…

AND

How do I create RAVING FANS.

Why raving fans?

Because in this new world economy – what we call “economic winter” – you can no longer have satisfied customers… satisfied customers will leave you.

Raving fans will stay – and they’ll bring all their friends.


We’re going to develop rock-solid internal and external communication with your customers so that people FEEL wanted, needed, and appreciated.

And when you give them those EXPERIENCES – they’ll come back again and again.

That’s how you build a real BUSINESS (not just a transaction or some one-time free-lancing job).


Finally, the Psychology.


This is the challenging part to talk about with high achievers like yourself…

Why?

We think if we just knew that secret strategy or that tactic – we’d become successful…

But let me shoot you straight:

Your best level of thinking got you to where you are today.

It will not get you to where you want to be.

If it would, you would already be there.



And this is not a judgement.


It’s simply my deep understanding of psychology these days. I’ve been obsessed with it, and I’ve even had the honor and privilege to have been personally coached by the greatest who has ever lived in this area.

You know what it costs to get a 1-on-1 with my “boss” ?

1 million dollars.

And there’s a 4-year waiting list.

I’ve been held to rigorous standards to reach this level. I’ve been given the “seal of approval” AND completed countless interventions in every context.

I can get you to take action.

We – TOGETHER – can get you the life and business of your dreams.

But they say the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

It’s time for you to take the first step.

Join The Path with me and we’ll walk it together.

- Steve



P.S. You’re probably are wondering “what you get” with The Path…



I get so excited about this stuff I left out some of the details.

You can see them all here on the landing page.

But to give you an idea, here’s how The Path works:

  • Each Month there will be a “Lesson of the month” – Strategies to plug and play into your business to get you from where you are to where you want to be. It could be business planning, launching new products, marketing campaigns, cart abandonment recovery, and more. I’ve essentially identified 13 things that if you implement one per month, it would be damn near impossible NOT to at least double your revenue that year.

  • Each WEEK we have a coaching and accountability call – Every Friday 10am PST / 12pm CST / 1pm EST we do an “end of week” business hours call to recap victories for the week and a quick mini-lesson as well as “open consulting”. You can bring me your landing pages, product listings, email sequences, sales scripts, or whatever else you’re working on and not just get MY feedback, but feedback from the entire group. The challenge most entrepreneurs face is they are ONE person trying to solve TWELVE problems. We want at least TWELVE people solving ONE problem. THAT is how you make real progress.

  • Ask a Coach – this is a simply way for you and I to communicate. It’s your time to be selfish and ask specific questions about your marketing, strategy, or if you have a challenge personally we can walk through it together. You’ll have access to me essentially 24/7 for a fraction of what it normally costs (my keynote speeches alone are $20,000 for an hour these days and as a consultant I charged $4,800 a month minimum for once a week consulting to give you perspective).

  • Our private group – this is where an enormous amount of value is. A paid mastermind does many things but one of the best things is it keeps the riff-raff out and the serious people engaged.

  • The Study Vault – Inside the Study Vault I built, you’ll get access to countless hours of training and programs but more importantly, this is where I store my email templates, marketing campaigns that didn’t hundreds of thousands (and two of them, millions) of dollars in revenue over the course of just a few days. If you’re ever at a loss for best practices when building a sales page, writing copy, creating a dynamite product listing, or more – you’ll find it here.


If this sounds pretty good, you’ll want to read all of the details here to make sure it’s right for you.
I look forward to serving you.

Your life and your business is a bout to change.

You are the hero on The Path.

I’m simply the guide.

Don’t stay lost.

Follow me.

Will that be helpful for someone who has business but want to try something else? Will that help to put me on the right track what to do? What kind of business to choose and how to scale it basically from zero?

I run landscaping company. Good money but I’d like to do something online so I can be wherever I want

One of the biggest and best lessons I've ever learned is to fall in love with your customer, not your product...

We get paid for the improvements we bring to the marketplace, not just the particular service we provide.

If you wanted to stayn in a similar industry, what would your current customer need before, during, or after they use your landscaping services?

There's a million things you *could* do, the question is what do you WANT to do?

Any business is going to take commitment. If the landscaping business is doing mid 6 to 7 foguresa year, I'd recommend learning the skills of leadership, hiring, and building the internal and external "machine" so that you can step away.

(This is the advanced stuff we work on in this program)

If you want to just do something completely different, you could sell leads to landscapers, build them an online presence, sell them tools -- or you could take a completely different route and provide homeowners or companies the tools and packages to do it on their own.

Your income is only capped by your creativity.

I haven't met you but I'm guessing 2020 was a challenging year which is (in part) the reason you want something new. I get it. If you have employees, operating manuals, a client list, and proper documentation-- you could potentially sell the company and give yourself a little time to figure out what's next...

OR we could figure it out now

This is directly from the "welcome" piece of the program for those of you who are asking for more detail of what's inside:

The Path focuses on three major pillars: strategy, marketing, and psychology.
The strategies are based on customer acquisition, product and service innovation, and creating more consistent and recurring revenue inside of your business. Think Strategies = Innovation.
Marketing is the 2nd piece of the puzzle. To get more business, we'll need to refine our communication internally and externally. This is where we'll discuss advertising, websites, copywriting, sales, and influence. Generate leads, increase conversion, and get your team (and yourself) selling and generating referrals consistently.
Finally is the psychology of leadership. What it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, what it takes to lead a team, and how to transform from business operator to business owner. Two notes: the biggest chokehold in any business is the psychology of the leader AND rarely does our personal income exceed our personal growth.

THE BASIC STUFF

STRATEGY

Peter Drucker said, "Business is only two things; marketing and innovation."

Think of strategy as innovation. But innovation can sometimes be a scary word. Innovation does not mean some revolutionary life-changing product -- here's what it is: constant and never-ending improvement.

But constant and never-ending improvement of what? The quality of your customer's and client's lives.
Our business lives or dies, survives or thrives on how well we can deliver an outcome to our customers and clients in a timely and effective manner. If you sell a product, you should consistently be thinking "how do I make this product better?" and "how do I make their experience with this product better?"

Say you sell camping gear. You might sell tents. While you're always thinking "how can I make our tents better," you are also thinking "how can I make my client's camping experience better?"

What is it that they need on a camping trip that you can provide? Innovation often means offering more products and services to your customers. The first step we always look at is "what are your customers buying right now that they could be buying from you?"
Next, how can we consistently innovate internally so that we not only improve the quality of our customer's lives but we also increase the bottom line profit of our transactions, make our delivery process better, communicate better, decrease returns, answer burning questions, and anything else we need to do to get your customers and clients to come back more often.

MARKETING

The amount of income we earn is in direct proportion to the amount and quality of offers we make.


Marketing is about getting people to raise their hand, say they're interested in your offers, and getting them to follow through on purchasing your products and services.

The tools we need to do this both online and offline are the written word, audio, video, and images.

We want to refine these messages and then put them in front of the people who are most likely to be your customers and clients.

To keep it simple: figure out who is your customer, where they hang out, and what to put in front of them to move them down the path.

Throughout our journey together, we're going to craft and tweak your offers, write and edit your copy, find and build imagery that proves your products and service do what they say they'll do, and much more.

PSYCHOLOGY
I've already mentioned the biggest chokehold in any business is the psychology of the leader.

More than that -- it's the consistent emotional states we are in that will determine whether we take action or not.

Think about this: most entrepreneurs are alone sitting at their desk all day dealing with emotions of stress, frustration, confusion, loneliness, overwhelm and more.

But when you're at your best? When you are performing? You're confident, certain, powerful, decisive -- you've got momentum.

What we're after is to put ourselves into a peak emotional state and condition that part of ourselves so we're there more often than not.

Two big challenges we face:

1.) After working with thousands of companies, I've learned there really is no such thing as a business problem... only personal problems that effect our business.

2.) Most entrepreneurs feel like they are alone on an island and trying to do it all themselves. Meaning you're 1 person trying to solve 12 problems at one time.

What we WANT is 12 people trying to solve 1 problem. That's where the psychology of the group comes in... when you're deep in the weeds, you're down in the trenches, and your allies come by and say "hey wait, I had that problem -- why don't you try this?"

We can DRAMATICALLY cut the learning curve.

THE ADVANCED STUFF

THE MACHINE

The reason businesses fail is 100% because of a breakdown in the machine.


The machine is simply a chain of events that happens before, during, and after you sell a product or service.

The purpose of our businesses is to consistently deliver value to the end customer in a timely and effective manner.

If orders don't get placed, management doesn't communicate with the sales team, the warehouse is out of product, an email confirmation doesn't get sent -- every one of these things can lead to a breakdown in the machine.

Many companies have big revenue but tiny profits... why? What you'll learn is that a single cog in the machine can create massive costs.

If your company is already doing 200k or more in revenue per year, there's a very good chance a broken cog has cost you upwards of $1 million dollars in lost income.

How is that even possible? When we go into detail, you'll see examples of companies that have lost out on tens of millions of dollars simply because the warehouse manager hated the sales manager and because they didn't communicate... the order was not officially placed... which means the customer didn't get their product in time for a massive multi-million dollar launch... which means they went with a different supplier....

Or maybe more close to home when a customer orders a pair of boots... that show up and are the wrong size... and to rectify the situation you send another pair... which are the wrong color... because the warehouse didn't tell you they don't have that particular color and size so they just "sent what they had."

A simple mistake costing thousands of dollars. The question is: how many times per day are these happening in your business? We're going to correct those.

LEADERSHIP & TEAM BUILDING

Your number one customer is not actually your customer... it's your employees.

If you treat your employees well, they will treat the customers well.

But you must master the skills of leadership. Leadership means many things but you're going to have to put the right people, in the right seats, on the right bus, heading in the right direction.

Learning the skills of hiring, firing, building a culture, creating visions, building pods and management teams, and communicating effectively as a leader. You're going to learn how to deal with different personalities and how to identify different styles.

You're going to have to learn to be decisive and much, much more.

ACQUISITIONS & TURNAROUNDS

The quickest way to multiply your results is to look for and acquire other businesses in your category. Overnight you can acquire a massive list of customers, new and innovative products and technology, and much more.

Once you understand The Machine, you'll have the ability to go into practically any business -- predict whether they will fail or succeed -- and acquire them.

Looking to turn a failing business around? We can do that.

Looking to go nationwide with established infrastructure? We can do that.

CFO & ACCOUNTING

The least sexy (but more important) part of your business is tracking your numbers effectively.

Many CPAs and accountants say "you've got a profit!" at the end of the year... but there's no cash in the bank.

Profit is a theory. The only thing that really matters is cash.

As small business owners we must be aware of, consistently track, and be effective stewards of the money coming in and out of our businesses.

This is one of the biggest challenges for business owners because it's scary to look at, it usually makes people run screaming, but if we don't tackle this... we're going to be in a world of hurt.

I’d like to join. Maybe networking will help me to change the field and grow from there. How many people are in the group?

Only 15 so far, but I'm capping it at 100. I'm doing a lot more hands-on stuff with this group so I don't want to get overwhelmed just yet :smile2:

Awesome @luqazs! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

For those thinking about it, I love Steve's program. It's brought even more excitement, success, and happiness to my life!

You're definitely not alone if you ever have that feeling that there are a few things you are really confident about... as in the ins and outs of your specific industry or what your personal strengths are... and yet you also feel nearly overwhelmed that the world out there that you are less familiar with could fill an entire continent compared to the house you know well. This is awesome as it challenges you to grow! The courage to learn and do is what opens us up to potential!

Being a part of this group gives clarity in that world of unknowns and opens up new worlds for me. It helps guide to what I need to know right now. Right now is when I can be better, live better, and build a better biz.. so I will. Happy to answer any questions here or dm!
