Will Next Year Be Higher Value Than This Year?

 

Everyone approaches New Years with great anticipation. There’s hope for change, improvement, and growth. Anything seems possible.

 

However, by summer everyone’s enthusiasm has disappeared. Our summer body becomes whatever body we wound up within the summer. Our business may be growing – or not. We aren’t so focused on big plans. Instead, we grind through each day and week, looking forward to weekends and vacation time.

 

But what if it wasn’t that way? What if you could plan for a better 2018 during 2017? What if you could become – now – the kind of person who will succeed next year?

 

Making Time to Grow

One of the excuses that people commonly make is that they are too busy to learn new things. Too busy to become someone new. The truth is that we make time for what is important to us.

 

I’ve discussed routines on this blog before, and I am a strong believer in the power of habit and routine to give us space to do more in our lives. Habits can streamline existing tasks to create breathing room in your day for new activities. Routines can allow you to add new actions on a regular basis, such as working out, reading, and more.

 

Growth Value Tool #1: Reading

The first thing to make time for regularly is reading. Too many people never read another book after they graduate from school. If you want to learn new skills, shift your mindset, and build a business, reading is essential.

 

Exactly what you read will vary depending on your goals, but a few slam-dunk suggestions are:

 

By setting up a morning routine, you can make a habit of reading books that will help you in your business or life. Just 30 minutes a day with some note taking afterward can be life-changing.

 

Growth Value Tool #2: Exercise

Everyone knows they should, yet few people consistently exercise. A friend once told me, “I’ve heard that you should consider each workout as giving yourself a raise.” The simple truth is that when you exercise, you are healthier, have more energy, and are able to be much more productive.

 

Exercise can be anything you like. If you hate running, don’t feel like you have to run. Instead, swim, walk, do workout videos, or lift weights. Whatever gets you moving and your heart pumping will make a significant positive difference in your life.

 

Growth Value Tool #3: Hobbies

I’m not sure where everyone got the idea that life had to be a serious rat race until retirement, but I’m not a believer in that at all. I think that fun should be part of your days and your life now, not at some hoped-for future point.

 

Take time during your week to schedule time for hobbies. Whether you enjoy building model cars or working crossword puzzles, having a hobby gives you time to relax and recharge. In fact, many studies have found that our minds are most productive and creative when we give them a break.

 

Growth Value Tool #4: Take Action on New Information

Another trap that many people fall in is that they are constantly learning but never implementing. So my last growth tool is a challenge: what are you going to do with what you learned today?

 

The ultimate way to add value is taking massive intentional action. Every coach will tell you to add value to whatever you are offering. It’s like this mystical thing no one actually knows what “value” is but everyone should bring it!

 

This is so important whether you are starting out, you are just getting into selling products or packages, or if you are massively expanding your business, right?

 

First I want to talk about what holds us back from offering value:

 

Our first hurdle: Confidence!

We aren’t sure that our product/ package/ ultimate offer is worth the value.

We start adding everything you can think of including the kitchen sink if someone would just buy one…. Can you feel the desperation in this?

 

Our second Hurdle: Your brain is lying to you!

Your mindset is saying you can’t add value because you haven’t “made it” yet.

You know that elusive number that means you are a real entrepreneur. Whether that’s $500 on a coaching package, $17 dollars on a book or a subscription to a product from a direct sales company it hasn’t happened yet. And it isn’t going to unless you stop letting your brain lie to you and you crush that goal!

 

Our third hurdle: You don’t know where to take action!

You have tried the splatter effect. This is where you try 8 different things across every social media account once and nothing goes viral immediately and then you never try again.

 

The good news is you’re not alone! I put together a value roadmap that will take you from begging your mom to buy your product to 2k in cash in less than one month.

 

We are going to cover what value actually is! You will be completely clear, No more guessing and missing the mark!

We are going to cover the common mistakes I see over and over again so you save time! Know what is holding you back from your full potential before you waste all of 2018 making the same mistakes!

 

97% of business owners are making mistakes that will eventually force their business to close and leave them in incredible debt. Everyone you talk to thinks their business is the miraculous 3%. Don’t guess BE one of the 3%.

 

You are going to get a 90-minute roadmap that will save you hours writing wording for your website, thinking of what to post on social media and finally be consistent.

 

You are going to commit to making more money than ever in your business!

You are going to earn those bragging rights so your significant other/ parents/ friends stop asking when are you going to get a real job???

 

If you attend the live roadmap training the cost is only $27 dollars. After that, the website official price is going to be $127!

Personal Branding: Its Essential

Personal Branding: Its Essential

Answer quickly: What does Gary V have that you probably don’t have?

 

Nope. It’s not hustle, a ridiculous work ethic, or a million dollars.

 

It’s a personal brand.

 

What does Gary V sell? He sells himself, and he does it very, very well.

 

I mean, it’s as simple as the fact that I can say “Gary V” and you instantly know what I mean. So why does it work – and more importantly, how can you create one too?

 

Why a Personal Brand Works

People do business with those they know, like, and trust. A personal brand helps people feel that they know more about who you really are, which helps them develop the “know, like, and trust” factor.

 

When you develop a personal brand, you don’t focus your messaging on what you sell, you focus your message on who you are and why you’re driven to serve others. This helps tie into another key marketing principle – people love to shop but they hate to be sold.

 

If you’re focusing on portraying who you are and why you’re serving your audience, you avoid the feeling of “selling” while you are, in fact, boosting the credibility of your products and services.

 

Finally, people buy based on emotions and justify their decisions with logic later. By building an effective personal brand, you’re building a bank of positive emotions with your targeted tribe. When they see that you have a product or service for sale, they’ll be more likely to buy from you.

 

How to Build an Effective Personal Brand

I want to get one misconception out of the way right away – an effective personal brand does not have to mean that everyone likes you and you offend no one. In fact, you may turn off a large group of people.

 

What matters is that you connect deeply with your target customers. You want to build a loyal group of followers – a tribe – and that means you have to take a narrow focus that appeals especially to them.

 

Let’s look at Gary V again. He’s got an incredibly passionate tribe who hangs on his every word. People who want to hustle at the level that Gary does. People will sacrifice everything in order to succeed. To them, Gary is a hero.

 

And then there are detractors. Have you ever had someone write in Inc magazine that your theories could destroy others’ businesses? Gary V just shakes it off. He’s not for them, he is of his own tribe.

 

Some other methods that will help you build your personal brand:

  • Have a Clear Message. Know what you’re portraying and to whom. Gary V started with a message based on a single word: Hustle. Your message should have that same focus and clarity.
  • Be Consistent. As someone building a personal brand, you have to keep your public persona consistent. Share the same message and focus on LinkedIn as you do on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms.
  • Be Unforgettable. One benefit to being controversial is that people remember you. Love you or hate you, they remember. As someone building a personal brand, you can’t afford to be bland or sound like everyone else.
  • Focus on Exposure. In order to build your personal brand, you have to be visible. Be active on the same social media outlets your customers frequent. Create content – videos, and writing – that gets shared.
  • Be You. You won’t be successful if you try to be another Gary V or another famous person. Those folks are taken. Be you, connect with your tribe, and watch your brand grow.

 

What do people think of when they think of you? Not sure? By clarifying your message and focus you can increase the business seeking you out versus chasing people down!
