Being Accountable in Your Business is Not Something You Do Part Time.

I have noticed that the word Accountability has been thrown out a lot lately on social media. Many of you know I run an Accountability Class and let me tell you one thing. Finding people who are accountable in life is very hard. Asking someone to be reliable for just one day isn’t asking too much, but if you ask that same person to be accountable for 30 straight days, wait and see what happens.
 
Over the last year I have only been able to pass 6 people. that is not a good number at all. That means that most people who registered for the classes quit or failed.
 
Being accountable is not something you do once in a while. I have met coaches who only require to meet or touch base with their students once a week and I’m sorry but that won’t do anyone any good. If you plan to train people or help them be accountable, from day one you have to hold them to a much higher standard or else they will look for ways to get out of doing thew work needed to make progress because that is what they are use to doing.
 
Everyone wants a better life and financial security, but not many are willing to actually work for it and you’ll see exactly what I am talking about if you pay close attention to how people operate in their day to day lives. When you see people wasting time on Instagram doing worthless things Vs promoting their business, it shows you where they focus is.
 
I had a student tell me that I was “So full of fucking garbage” that they quit my class all because I asked them daily “What did you get done” after 23 days of that, the person said “Are you going to fucking harp on me everyday”?…….I said “I’m holding you accountable and you getting mad at me just shows me how hard this is for you”. If I am “Full of Garbage” then how come I am ranked on Google’s first page (Twice)? How did that even happen? Did it happen by magic or did it happen because I was accountable to producing content in a way that Google see’s as quality? I rank on Google’s first page organically because I earned it. I put in the time and the work and now I get the benefit of those results and here they are…..

It’s Not Garbage When You Can Prove Your Results.

 
The guy told me that my advice doesn’t work and so he quit. Today he is struggling to do deals in his business, he has no leads that are good, he has no leads in any pipeline, and yet this is all my fault because I tried to get him focused on production vs wasting time on Instagram posting pics of Bud Light and fishing with his buddies.
 
People are afraid of taking my class because they are worried that I will not think of them the same if I find out how they really are as a person in life. We get fooled all the time on Social Media with people claiming to be hard workers and grinders but when they get in my class, all that bad ass attitude goes away because what they have been saying to me in terms of their work ethic now has to be proven and so far almost 97% of people who register can’t pass my class.
 
The work is not hard at all, people just can’t hold themselves to a higher standard in life and then they wonder why no one wants to do business with them? The Accountability Classes I host are starting to gain even more attention. I’m getting strange people who I don’t know contacting me about the class. I had 6 people register who I never met before in my life but they said the are taking the class to see if they are on point with their day to day efforts.ooo
 
This class is not for everyone. Its not for people looking for fast and easy money! This class is for people who want to build a brand that lasts and also have more than one source to rely on when it comes to generating new business for themselves. If you can be accountable for 10 weeks without fail, then this is the class for you because I don’t let people slide by, you either perform and do really well, or you find excuses as to why you don'[t want to put or energy into your business each day…..Let’s find out where you are at!
 
Registration fee changes tomorrow. The class will be $400.00 per person for the full 10 weeks. Start off 2017 in a good way, hold yourself more accountable to the work that you know you should be doing but can’t rely on yourself to do it alone. $100.00 deposit gets your spot in the class reserved. I have 18 people registered right now and I fully expect the class to sell out just like the last two did.

 You can contact me directly if you have more questions about the class. You will be put into a bracket that is very much like the NCAA basketball tournament where you will compete each week against others in the class. Week by week you tally up points based on your weekly efforts and in the end you get a chance to win our seasonal trophy and come out of the class with a new sense of accountability, skills, and knowledge.

Do You Want To Develop Productive Habits? (But Need Help)

it’s 2:42am here in Phoenix and I’m starving. This is what I want right now. A subway sub with all this stuff on it. What do you like on your subs?
 
Believe it or not, in the Winter Accountability Class students will be put in situations where they have to try new things and YES….one of them could be food. As weird as that sounds, its little things like that which help people break out of molds they have set for themselves.n-productive-628x314
 
Unless you are a foodie, when was the last time to set out to try something brand new when it comes to food? Whether it be food, or a trying to develop a new habit, it all starts with exposure to things we are not used to seeing or engaging with.
 
People work very hard in life to have a set routine day to day, for most, its not a productive set up and that can be fixed…..but only if you want it to. Breaking habits and forming new ones is a different process for many people. I have had students try new foods and snacks and that was an ice breaker for them.
 
It seems dumb and simple but there is a certain way to bring people along when it comes to their level of confidence and if you have them going 100 MPH right from day one, then you will be in no better shape than if you signed up for a guru’s program because you heard their pitch at a weekend seminar.
 
When you work with people for 10 straight weeks you get to know them very well. I can honestly say I know when I am being lied to and I know when people are telling me things about their progress just to make me stop asking questions about their week. The problem is this is an Accountability class, my job is to make sure you are doing all you can to get ahead of where you are performance wise day to day.let-s-be-productive-not-busy
 
I don’t have a problem with accountability at all. What I want in life is enough to keep me driven day in and day out 24/7. This Accountability class is a unique experience. If you fail or quit the class it says a lot about you and what you need to work on. For most people its the lack of patience, they all want fast results but anytime you are trying to compete with people who have a much larger pocket book than you do, that is when you have to be savvy about how you get ahead in your business.meet-the-mentor-2017-changes
 
The class will keep you honest, the class will test you. Not many will pass it but no one who does will ever be the same. Whether I hear from the finishers again or not after they complete the course one thing is for sure…..they will never forget their time in the Accountability Class and the work they did while in it.

People Don’t Hate Change, They Hate The Work Involved With Creating it.

– The Record store owner hated the invention of the MP3.
 
– Cab Drivers hate the invention of Uber.
 
– Fast food workers hate that machines can take orders without them.
 
The fact of the matter is that the world is changing and people are stuck in their ways. You see people say “Why can’t it always be like it has been? well because its time for things to get better. Imagine if we said the same thing about medicine and advancements in human health. If you hate advancement in life then you are against progress in life, seriously!012516_2100_dopeoplerea1
 
Relying on the idea that things will always be the same is nuts. What is cool and hip today, sucks in about 6 months and no one wants it anymore. Staying relevant in the world is now a full time gig. You either are adapting well to the changes we are facing, or you will be left behind. Remember when VCR’s came out and if you were a kid you were asked to program it so your mom and dad could record shows……remember that?
 
That only happened because the parents refused to adapt to learning something new. They felt it was beyond their understanding and so they never owned up to the responsibility of knowing how it works. kids wold pick up on it fast because they were excited about the technology and couldn’t wait to get their hands on it.Old VHS Recorder on white background.
 
When you embrace change and new things, it opens you up to more experiences and new knowledge that you once never had access to. I will never understand why people do not try to live to their potential in life. I find it fun when you discover that you are good at things you never once tried.
 
Don’t hate change, hate the fact that you don’t want to grow anymore!

Do You Want To Get Over Your Fear of “Cold Calling”?

Who hates making cold calls to sellers? I am looking into adding a “Live” video feed where Accountability Class Members can sit in an watch me make my calls in real time. I also want to open this up to allow others to sit in and not only watch but also participate. We can have people do calls and we can go over how to flow well on the phone.
 
I hate scripts because you are forcing yourself to say words you normally do not say on a regular basis, it doesn’t sound like you so in the end to you……it doesn’t feel like you. It feels more like faking it and that has a tendency to effect performance so instead of doing it the old fashioned way, why not work on the phone and in real time we can work together to find your language.
 
As a professional DJ most of my life I had to learn how to talk and present well in order to be effective at my job. I was badass because I could flow really well and create excitement just by changing my tone and volume. This is an art, its a performing art and this can be taught to you. As a presenter, I can work with you in your own way to find your talking niche, this actually matters because when you find your VOICE, you are more willing to work on making calls because you now have a way to talk to people on the phone that works for you.
 
Many of you have phone scripts you use and as you use them it makes you feel like you are cheating in some way because those are not your real words, its not authentic and for many people that alone could be the one reason why they refuse to do that marketing method daily. I understand fear, but I also understand talent and if you can find your phone voice, then you can make cold calling easier for you.
 
I haven’t decided if I am adding this to the Winter Class or not. That all depends on if the class sells out again! I have 18 registered now and we need 50 for the class to start. Contact me if you think you are up to the challenge to be in a 10 week program that works with you in ways most guru’s refuse to.

ATTENTION Anyone Connected with me on Facebook.

I have starting trimming down my Private Meet The Mentor Facebook Group. Some of you are in that group but will now see that you are no longer in there.

There is a reason for this. I had a 92% inactive rate from the people who were in that group so I gutted it and will be starting the group over and this time it will only be for those people who are in the Meet The Mentor Program in some way.

Over the last year I have sold out all my classes and it looks like the Winter Class will be doing the same. I am making these changes because I want my private group to only be filled with people who are go-getters, and people who do not use excuses as to why they can’t get simple things day each day.

If you have been removed from the group just realize that I owe it to the students to give them the best content and the best environment to grow and that can’t happen if I have more than half the group not doing anything.

When my mentor Glen died, I promised him I would do things right and honestly if I ever decided to create a program for people. Now that Meet The Mentor has grown, I have no choice now but to operate in a way where I can only work with people who will be honest with me and put in the work to succeed. It will not be easy to get into this group but I have a high standard I am setting and I want people to be a part of something that is not for just anyone.

The Private Facebook Group is only for those people who are willing to sell out and work for their goals in life and not care what anyone thinks. This group will be very small compared to a lot of Facebook groups, but it will only be filled with people who can get things done. Most groups can’t say that so we’ll set the standard for accountability starting today!meet-the-mentor-2017-changes

Ranking on Google’s 1st Page Doesn’t Require Money.

I know we live in a mobile world but I’m telling you this much. surfing the internet on a big screen vs a phone is so much better. You see more of the actual screen and overall it presents a more full layout.
I hate how my content looks on mobile but on a Desktop its way badass. I run all my businesses from my desktop so if people are telling you that you have to only do mobile to get discovered….they are full of shit. My “Meet The Mentor” Program was built off of a free blog that I did and I worked to get those results Vs relying on a mobile algorithm to feed my content to people. I did the work and I had success…..go figure!

A lot is changing in the internet folks, mobile technology is going to be huge but it will not be the only thing you have to depend on to get your name out there or to build a brand. If you can get your content in front of people, then you can win. I beat google’s algorithm all the time, in fact look at the cover picture for this blog post, its a picture of me being ranked twice on Google’s first page so I’m not only showing you that I can do this, but I can show you how I did it in my classes. You don’t have to be a slave to Google search engine results anymore, you can bypass all of that if you know how to cater to people who are interested in what it is you are offering.

google-algorithm-fade-ss-1920-800x450

Are you a Slave to Google’s Algorithm’s?

For example…if you sold pies but couldn’t get a lot of web traffic to sell many of them, could you go out and find hungry people who love pie and maybe sell some? sure you could, the problem is most people today rely only on technology and algorithms to save their ass, never mind actually going out and building your name up the old fashioned way (By Talking to People).
I write about this lack of effort in my book Embrace The Grind. Don’t underestimate the power of a human network. You can rely on your mobile web searches and ads all you want, but with technology changing, there will be a huge gap for people to bypass Google’s rules of being seen on the web and some are already taking advantage.
I just checked today (11.25.2016) and I am still ranked on Google’s first page at the #4 and #6 spot overall and I did this using no money on ads. Organic traffic can get you a ton of results, but the problem is, you can’t rely on programs or automated systems to get you these results. When you buy template based systems for your website or blogs you are being coded exactly the same as everyone else who has that platform so in the end you have to win the google ranking game by outperforming people and you don’t get to do that unless you put in the work outside of your automated stuff.algorithm
I’ve been on Google’s first page now for over 17 months. I have two spots on the first page normally and the highest I have been ranked was #2 and #5 spots at the same time. I have always had 2 search results come up on the first page for Google which is great! I show people how I was able to do this in my accountability classes.
I can show you how to get attention to your content for FREE, but you have to be willing to work for that type of result or else you are going to have to rely on your wallet to get you the views you are hoping for and even then, that is still a crap shoot because you are still relying on Ad Words and Keywords to be found and that game is rigged for the highest bidders so good luck with that.
The internet is much bigger than a few keywords folks. Once you figure that out, you can start marketing smarter than most people and save money in the process. Register for my upcoming 10 week Accountability Class today. You can contact me directly about that by messaging me at the links below.
