Why 95% of business owners are creating jobs instead of assets and how YOU can change this.

Did you get into entrepreneurship wanting to build a job?

How about a prison?

Then you need to read this article, because I’m about to show you how you’re probably building a business you do not want.

First a quick story to set the stage…

I was in Istanbul, Turkey with celebrity entrepreneur BB Andersen working on a management-consulting project for a client.

I was pretty green to the whole international consulting game. Choking down a $50 cigar while we were negotiating a business deal, we got into looking at the numbers.

From the outside the business was very profitable.  800K a year profit and a solid growth curve. Guy wanted 3x bottom line to sell it.

BB looked through everything, took a puff off the cigar and said that the business was worth a million dollars MAX.

Things got a little tense and the owner said he was insulted.

Then BB asked the million dollar question:  “If you died tomorrow would your business still run?”

That my friend is a powerful question:

Why Profit Is A Poor Indicator Of Business Valuation

If you answer no to that question you have to face the brutal honesty that you have a job (it may be high paying, though you’re tied to it).

This is always a sore subject with some of my guru friends who own these prisons.  Where if they don’t work they get no paycheck from their clients.

Here are some other questions to ask:

How much money did you earn LAST MONTH from work you finished 5 years ago?

If you wanted to sell your business this year, could you?

Shift From A Job To Building An Asset To Make More Money

So before we talk about how to make the shift, lets look at a huge positive:  As businesses work to create assets they usually make a lot more MONEY!

Take our Turkish Client.  He went from 800K a year to 2.1 Million in 12 months.  And he was working only about 6% of the time he was working before.

I know the math does not seem to work.  Yet, when you get it there is a palm to forehead moment as you see building an asset means you work less and have more to spend.

When you build an asset, the focus is on creating income WITHOUT having to be involved in the income generation.

Whenever you can do this the asset is VERY sellable.

When the asset is sellable, investors will become VERY interested and pay a premium.

And you’ll be able to spend more time on the beach.

 

 

 

 

Why info-products fail to get results

Commitment

Is there a more misunderstood word in our language?  We throw commitment around like a rag-doll at a slumber party.  Yet without the depth of knowledge on what commitment really is, your business will struggle.

I screwed this one up for 8 years of my life.  For 8 years I was committed to collecting information and not getting results.  Didn’t seem like it at the time, though with proper perspective it became quite clear.

True commitment is like a law.  As I write this email the sun is rising over the clouds from 30,000 feet.  The sun is committed to rising.  The sun has true commitment.

Now here’s a million dollar question:

Can you bring that same commitment as the sun to make your business grow consistently.

Look: when I first heard that results could be that predictable I said no way.

And I was right.  It wasn’t possible.

I was committed to it not being possible.  If I accepted the law of commitment as true, then I would have to take responsibility for not getting results.

I wasn’t ready for that.

Though a few grey hairs later I realized a few things.  I was working more hours than ever…  And still not getting results.

I decided to check my ego as I was sick and tired of struggling. Sick and tired of being in the same place. There was too much success going on around me to think it was the information.

So I went back and re-examined that “Law of commitment” thing.

There was my answer.  When I looked deep down, I committed to being right and collecting more information.  Getting results was secondary to my ego.

Dumb move on my part.  Though once I admitted my mistake, I could fix it.

I changed my commitment to getting results and helping others achieve better.  That was the moment my business shifted.

Without the ego, I built team around me that was much smarter than myself.  In seeking out success.  I was never again concerned with being right.  Just simply finding the truth.  That was the game changer.  I’ve stayed committed to helping entrepreneurs get results ever since.

And results have been staggering for myself and clients.

Here’s some insight to what I have been doing as well.

Very quietly over the past few months I developed an entry level program uses the law of commitment to help entrepreneurs go from stuck in their business to take it to the bank results.

People who were stuck now getting results.

And I mean I’ve worked with people who are STUCK.  One of the guys I worked with (we’ll call him Joe) was bumping along at 3K a month for 5 years.

Three months later Joe’s doing 12K.

And Joes not the only one.

All of these results have not been from flashy new marketing strategies.

Actually quite the opposite.

Results have been from going back to being committed to the end goal.  Removing psychological obstacles when they get in the way.  Teamwork and commitment.

Are you committed to getting results?

If you are, we are starting another round of the program now termed the “Hustle Plan”

Here’s what it is.

30 days of working hand in hand to achieve the goal you’re committed to.  Support from others in a group to help you break through the barriers that have been keeping you back for too long.

It’s not cheap.  Though if you’re committed you will get massive returns.

The hustle program is  $1,000 for the month.  Severely discounted from my normal monthly fees.

Here’s why I do it:

I know if I help you break through levels you’ve been stuck at for years in a month you’ll want to work with me long term.  Especially when you are able to pay the fees out of money you earn in the month of working together.

Even if we don’t work together long term, I take great satisfaction from helping people get moving forward.

Heck, I’d do it for free if I could still get results.  Something I’ve learned though is if there is no financial commitment, it’s almost impossible to break through money barriers.

 

No commitment.

So if you want to break through some obstacles that have been holding you back for years, fill out the form below and lets talk

Understand this will not be a sales call.  I will not sell you at all.  We will discuss why you want to break through your current levels and see if you are committed to doing the work.

Apply if you’re committed:

“Getting entrepreneurs Intended Results”

 

PS:  If you research the info product industry 1-3% of people get the intended results of the product.  70% of people never even take the plastic off.

Why?  People who sell info-products are violating the law of commitment.  It’s hard to blame them as if they sold the need to do something it could severely cut into their sales.  Selling something without a price to pay means there is no commitment.  And you’ve learned what happens in that situation
