Future Proof Your 2020

Have you got your 2020 planned?

If not, you might want to read this

Over in EWD we are just about to start a challenge called ‘future proof your 2020’

We are doing it now for one very good reason

You need to plan NOW if you want to make next year YOUR year

Listen I know it’s easy to wind down and think ‘fuck it, I’ll do it in January’

But how many times have you said that?

The nights are getting longer and colder…

Weather (northern hemisphere anyways you lucky Southern Hemisphere fuckers lol) is getting miserable…

That and you tend to ‘wind down’ in the upcoming months…

My advice?

Do the work NOW

For a few reasons

Firstly – the best one imo – it means you can actually ENJOY Christmas (or your holiday of choice and New Years)

Instead of worrying what your gonna do?

If you start NOW the work is done

And at the very least if you have defined your strategy, launches and got your products/content/social mapped out even basically

You’re gonna be ahead of most

And secondly when you start to do the work NOW you will most likely get some of the best clients you have

There’s a reason we don’t open EWD much and when we do it’s often after most others launches and in the quieter months of the year because we don’t want those that are all ‘hyped up’

We want those that understand that it’s a process and you need to invest time

– no quick fixes –

The people that tend to sign up with you in Q4 are some of the best and most long term clients you can find

(I still own a gym and we don’t let people join in January because they are all jacked up on New Years resolution and only a few have the staying power to commit to change)

So with that in mind

Have you started making plans for the next decade?

If they are let’s hear em!

And if not?

Why not?!?

A Story Of Reconnection In A Disconnected World – Part 1 of 4

A STORY OF RECONNECTION IN A DISCONNECTED WORLD – part 1 of 4

This picture?

I’ll explain shortly

But I wanted to address something I’d been feeling lately and what I did to address it

I had felt – for want of a better word – ‘disconnected’ from who I am

I love what I do
I have a great job
I’ve worked hard and am truly grateful for what I have

It’s been hard to put a finger on

In fact I’ve struggled to figure out why I wasn’t feeling much of anything

I felt (outside of what I’ve been doing with my focussed work in EWD and with 121 clients) I’d been lacking ‘something’

The energy I usually have in my posts and creativity and sheer drive seemed a bit muffled

Toned down

‘Power saving mode’

So I decided to take a trip back to reconnect with my past and see what came up

Today (Wednesday) I was in london; meeting some clients and contacts

– a great day –

But there was another agenda

I wanted to go back to where it all began…

And the story I’m going to share over the next few days will be raw and honest and open and – I hope – will be useful to many of you

Anyways this picture

The top one is a place called Hoxton Square and it’s where I lived towards the back end of 2007

The bottom was the ABN AMRO (think became RBS) on Liverpool Street

That was my office I’m pointing at

(Pretty baller eh?)

We had a floor there when we set up a headhunting firm and landed prime real estate in the square mile

I came to london with high hopes

The business was set up with – at the time – a close friend and biz associate

We landed a HUGE client and honestly? We were crushing it

Crazy deals and numbers we didn’t expect

We lived for a while in Mayfair…

Ate out at the best restaurants every night…

Dressed in fancy suits and bespoke shoes…

I thought I had made it

Stressful?

Yes – very

But I finally thought I was someone

I had the business card
The address (Hoxton was ‘the’ place to live)
I felt like I was actually worthwhile as a human

Then one day – over a misunderstanding – it was all take from me

Overnight
Poof
Gone

Do not pass go
Do not collect £200

Ya know how I found out?

I swiped my key card for the building (the building not the office) and it didn’t work

I asked security to let me in

‘Sorry Mr Meredith, you are no longer on the list’

Eh? I thought

So I called up

Safe to say it wasn’t a good conversation; not only was it just before payday what little I had in my current account was demanded back

So there I am

On my own

Fucking terrified

I had no idea what the Fuck to do; I had £22 to my name which was in my pocket

Literally that’s all I had

My identity
My worth
My ‘value’

Everything I had worked towards was ripped out of my hands and I was left with nothing

This was one of the lowest points in my life at the time

I truly contemplated ending my life as I get like I was a worthless piece of shit; a totally failure

….Look at Dan – so much potential – and he fucked it

…Fucking Loser…

…No wonder you failed…

…who the fuck do you think you are to think you could ever make it…

…you’re nobody…

^^^ phrases like that went over and over in my head and I went into a darkness I didn’t think I’d get out of

But I did

And in the upcoming weeks I learned some of the most valuable lessons life has ever taught me

And the 90 mins I spent in my own head walking – literally – through my memories gave me some powerful insights into both business and life

But that’s for Thursday

If you would like to follow along with this story?

Leave me a comment below so I can notify you tomorrow

In life it’s common to question who we are, what our worth is, do we make a difference and what’s our purpose in life

– I know I did at the time –

Lately though I knew was searching for ‘something’

And when I found what I needed?

It took me a little by surprise…

The tune in for part #2

Life is Too Short For Regrets

Remember where you once were, but understand it doesn’t define you

The case in the right contains the first £10 that I was given (as a tip as a doorman) when I lost everything

I mention this in my book (which I randomly had a little read of yesterday), but I was down to £22 for 6 weeks, living off basically nothing and the sandwiches I could find that were thrown out from the shop next door and this was the first piece of money I got

I vowed I would never be that low again, and that if I EVER had to spend this?

It was game over for me

The picture on the right is me speaking at my event earlier (with Franc) this year; with none other than Gary V as the headline along with myself

It was one of the highpoints of my career and entrepreneurial adventures

But I’ve never forgot that £10

Which is why they both sit on my ‘wall of weirdness’ – pride of place in my living room – to remind me of what I was, and what I became

If you life is shit right now?

I am fucking proof that IF YOU WANT IT ENOUGH, you can changes

You don’t have to be defined by what you WERE

You should be defined by what you DO

The limits are up here *taps head*

And if you want to make a change, invest in yourself, cut out bad habits/people and just fucking GO FOR IT

Then do

Theres nothing stopping you

And as I mentally get ready for the next phase of my growth, I’ll leave you with this

Im not one special

Im just a plum from Somerset who wanted more from life

Im just dan

No better or no worse than you, I just didn’t want to live a life of regret and be on my death bed wondering

‘What if’

This post in itself is a blast from the past

But a lesson that needs repeating

Life is too short for regrets and you got one roll of the dice

Go for it!

Dominating Social Media In 2020 And Beyond

If you want to build a solid fan base who loves you and what you do, social media is one of the best ways out there to do it.

Especially if you have more time than money.

This whole Planet Dan “thing” has developed through social media.

Completely organically.

Over the last 5 years, my ad spend has been £0.00

Will that change in the future?

At some point I’ll possibly run some ads.

For now? Nope!

Coffee With Dan has over 16,000 people in.

16,000 GOOD people.

People who engage, share, support and inspire.

People who – beside the occasional rare numbnuts – don’t spam the fuck out of the group and cause trouble.

People who I enjoy spending time around.

From CWD’s small beginnings has developed a 7-figure business, a thriving membership community that takes things to a whole other level, book sales in the hundreds of thousands, courses that have transformed peoples lives and businesses and so many great opportunities.

All through organic social media.

I’ve earned my stripes for sure.

This…it’s taken time.

It’s taken graft and genuine care.

I’m not gonna promise that you can go from zero to achieving everything I’ve achieved in 6 weeks.

Fuck me if there’s a magic button somewhere, I’ve sure as shit not found it.

What I have found is the best ways you can create a MASSIVE impact online.

So you can model my successes and avoid my failures.

But

Recent changes have got a lot of people worried…and with good reason.

Platforms keep adding and removing features.

Changing what is and isn’t allowed.

…and usually breaking their damn apps whenever they do.

There’s forever more going on.

More noise.

More competition.

More paid ads in your feed gobbling up that valuable real estate.

All the while it seems like it just gets harder and harder to get seen, get heard and get engagement.

So, how long are these good times gonna last and how can you future proof your business in 2020?

Well

I’m not gonna show you any sneaky tactics.

I’m not going to tell you how to hack the system.

I’m sure as shit not going to tell you to schedule and automate the fuck out of everything.

Because all that sneaky bollocks and techie magic only screws things up.

You get ahead for 5 minutes till you get caught out and shut down because you’re playing in someone else’s sandpit.

And

You spend so long trying to do it the easy way without putting the work in, you don’t build up that genuine connection with your audience, you don’t understand what makes them tick, they know you don’t care about them and they rightfully reject what you offer them.

As always, I’m here to share with you the shit that works…and keeps on working.

Wherever.

Whenever.

So you can succeed and profit for a long time to come.

Instead of jumping from bright shiny object to bright shiny object.

Here are 5 things you MUST do to dominate social media in 2020 and beyond.

1. Commit to consistency

You can’t get ahead if you’re half arsing things going all in when you’re motivated and then doing fuck all the rest of the time.

You have to show up for your audience. Be a familiar face in their feeds. Make yourself known as someone worth paying attention to.

If you don’t your audience’s attention will drift in your absence to other content which then takes a priority on their newsfeed so you won’t even get to be seen by them.

There begins your downward spiral of reach.

2. Give a shit about your audience

If they are giving you their time and attention, you should return the favour.

It’s called social media for a reason so don’t expect to just blast out your stuff and run.

The added bonus is you get to really know who is in your world, what they need and what drives them so you can create packages and offers they actually want.

3. Be infotaining

You want a mixture of entertainment and information that you’re posting as well as the occasional straight up promotion

Too much of one or another and people tune out.

Dull, predictable, seen and heard it all before.

You have to mix it up.

4. Be YOU

You’ll drive yourself loopy if you try to be someone else.

Best you can do is a crappy second rate version of someone else’s personality that the whole damn world can see through.

Model what other people do and put your take on it.

Whatever personality you have – there are people out there who will love it.

5. Share your story and your peoples stories

Storytelling is one of THE most powerful things you can do to grow a following that is truly connected to you and rooting for you to win.

It’s how we have communicated information since the dawn of time because stories stick in our minds.

Stories take ideas and concepts and turn them into something real and tangible.

They help us connect and they help us find the places we belong.

It CAN be intimidating to put yourself out there and if you’re around tonight, you’ll want to catch my livestream where I’ll be helping you break past things that are stopping you from sharing your story.

Combine these 5 things and you have a recipe for long term success whatever the platform.

Because you’ll have a strong audience that will follow you wherever you go and you’ll stay top of mind and top of their feed.

This is just a taster of what you can find in the Social Media Domination course in Espresso With Dan.

Inside the full course

What is it?

Well it is 20 lessons and action points (and accompanying resources) that have allowed me to great a $7-figure T/O business without – so far – spending a penny in paid advertising or traffic

I have done this offline

I have done this online

It works

It works REALLY fucking well

If you follow this, and are consistent daily, weekly and monthly?

Then you can DOMINATE your market too, if you want to…

😉

The key areas we cover are:

– The concept of ‘being everywhere’ (and why you should)

– A done-for-you content planner

– How to leverage influencers and groups for maximum growth

– A simple formula to make social media your bitch (and when to use it)

– Syndication: a basic ‘how to’

– Content and copy structure for maximum effect on social platforms

– 3 things that you need to do to make simple but effective videos

– Why you DEFINITELY need to go ‘whale hunting’

– The rotation method: why a few weeks of testing will jack up your results for organic social content

– How to leverage your personal story to make people ‘fall in love with you’ online

– Find people don’t watch your videos? Ill show a method ‘swiped’ from my copy training to make sure that doesn’t happen

This was done LIVE over 4 weeks in EWD

This is all my content, truly some of my best work and I know for a fact (because I have bought them from my ‘Jedi’ email address) that my competitors charge many hundreds for this; and have a couple at the $1000 mark – that are now way as in depth and real-world practical as this

Honestly, if you ACTUALLY follow the lessons outline over a period of months you will be amazed at how this works, really it all comes down to:

1. Knowing what to do
2. Consistency

That’s ALL you need to know to make this happen..really!

Let’s be real, you are here, in part, because of what I outline in this document

Is it simple to follow?

Yes

Will it ’work for me’

If you do as outlined and your are CONSISTENT over time?

Yes

This is just 1 of the 5 BIG month long trainings you can find in the vault along with 300+hrs of trainings on just about every topic an entrepreneur needs to thrive in 2020 and beyond.

EWD is open until midnight on Wednesday.

Priority booking and discounts to events like the Extravaganza

Monthly “Get Shit Done” zoom calls. We all get on the screen, set ourselves goals for what we’re going to do, then, most importantly Get Shit Done.

Monthly “Hot Seat” calls. We all get online, then one by one, you get coached by me (and sometimes others) to sort out the most pressing issues in your business. (Full disclosure, I’ll probably call you a minge or something, but only coz you are!)

Private content, coaching and treats I only share in EWD

The weekly EWD only Digest. An email that rounds up all the best bits from EWD and CWD so you NEVER miss the good stuff. Plus, its fucking hilarious!

My Biggest “Ha, Proved You Wrong”Moment

WHATS THE BIGGEST ‘HA, PROVED YOU WRONG’ MOMENT YOU’VE HAD (in biz or life)

Yesterday was a big day for me

If you didn’t see my post?

1 year sober

The amount of people who doubted me or thought ‘here we go again’ (or shit talked behind my back when I was going through hell lol #fwends 🤣) was numerous

Yesterday was – as proud as I was of achieving my goal – a nice internal ‘fuck you’ to them as well

Most of the good shit I either have or have had in my life has been down to people (many times) telling me that I couldn’t do X or Y

Never rubbed anyone’s faces in it, but always proved them wrong

Was pretty powerful fuel (and one of the most popular lessons in ‘RAGE TO RICHES’ and a monster module in the ‘GRIT: RED’ training next week) for me to make changes

What about you, have you ever been told you can’t do something and then gone ahead and done it to prove em wrong?

5 Reasons Why They Don’t Buy

5 reasons why they don’t buy (and what you can learn from our mistakes)

It’s all well and good showing what works and what gets results.

What people don’t often share is what doesn’t

I thought it would be useful to share with you some of the reasons people don’t join Espresso.

Some of these things are just facts of life.

Other’s? Well they are down to me and where I could do a better job.

As you’re reading this, think about your own business.

How these things show up.

And how you can implement the advice I share to avoid and eliminate them.

#1 – Not everyone knows exactly what it is on offer

This one falls squarely in the “Dan’s fault” category.

Last time we did a launch was about a year ago.

Since then?

Few mentions here and there when we’ve opened up a few spaces made when people have moved on.

And that’s about it.

So unless you’ve directly asked about it or know someone who is a member, chances are you wouldn’t really know what it is.

Funnily enough, if you don’t let people know what you’re selling, they don’t tend to start clamouring to buy it.

(Mad that eh?)

As I say, we’ve not opened in a year due to people joining always staying for so long.

There’s no huge need to promote it and that means too many people don’t know what it is.

Takeaway – there will be people in your world who are exactly the same.

Especially if you don’t show up consistently and/or you don’t have a clear offer and well defined Core Story.

If you’re worried about talking too much about what you do, chances are you aren’t talking about it nearly enough.

#2 – Some people simply aren’t ready yet

Maybe what you offer feels too advanced.

Maybe they feel the need to do more research – particularly if it’s a large investment.

Maybe they feel they aren’t “good enough” or “at the right stage”

Those things and phrases have come up when myself and my team have spoken to people about EWD.

If you’ve seen the legends of EWD posts in Coffee over the last few weeks, you may have noticed some of them had the very same concerns.

Again the buck stops at me.

Sometimes it’s true, there will be offers out there that are only for people at a certain stage.

That’s not the case with EWD.

So when those concerns come up, it’s because I haven’t made sure people know the group is full of people setting up from zero and making their first sales right the way to 7 figure businesses that have been established for years and everyone learns from everyone.

Takeaway – not everyone will be ready to jump in with what you have to offer.

Your job is to help them reach that stage and give them a little extra self-belief for those times when the only thing holding them back from results is themselves.

And

Ensure they know it is great for someone who is where they are right now when that is the case.

#3 – The timing is completely wrong or theres no warning

When we’ve had mini openings for spaces there’s been zero warning.

We opened a small amount of space for the make bank challenges…even then there was no lead up.

The challenge wasnt even a thing until a couple of days before it kicked off.

What I’ve often found is theres people who would have joined when we’ve opened but the timing wasnt right.

They were waiting on invoices or just made a big investment in something else.

If they knew EWD was going to be opening up, they could have planned better for it and got in.

Rather than being locked out because doors closed before they were ready.

Takeaway – think about when you do launches and let people know that something is coming

Another one that catches me is school holidays.

#dandoesntdodates

Single (😏) with no kids so I’ve got no idea when they are until I set a date for an event and the parents on my team tell me it won’t work for lots of people or it’s in the madness of Brightons tourism high points back when I was living there.

Little planning can make a big difference.

#4 – It’s out of the scope of some peoples budgets…and that’s ok

Everyone is at different stages of life and business.

There are no barriers in Coffee beyond being a decent human who wants to improve

It’s something that has always been important to me because I never want people to feel left out.

I want to make sure that everyone has a chance to succeed.

I hope that’s something you can see from the things we do such as the meginar and the make bank challenge.

Every single member is valued whether you buy from me or not.

And if it’s too much of a stretch and money needs to go on cards and food and things I’d honestly prefer people didn’t join.

I never want to put someones family in a risky financial position.

Yes, I did the Amex gamble and that was right for me

If you choose to do similar – that’s down to you.

My advice. It should be a stretch without breaking yourself.

Invest in yourself and back yourself to succeed.

But never go to far with that.

Takeaway – Not everyone can afford what you’re offering.

If price comes up too often as an objection it doesn’t mean you need to drop your prices to the ground.

Different people can afford different things at different times.

You need to look at how you position your offer to demonstrate the value of it, ensure your lead generation is bringing in plenty of people who are able to buy and remember that those who can’t invest now are still people, still of value and may even make that leap later down the line.

#5 Some people don’t believe they can succeed

This one absolutely sucks.

The reasons for it are varied.

Plenty of people have been burned by those who promise the world and deliver fuck all.

When I hear how many thousands of pounds people have lost when they’ve bought courses and programs or joined other memberships out there it makes me sick.

Equally

All of us.

Every single one of us.

Has had experiences that knock us back.

Even the best of us who always seem to deal well with things and keep going feel those big hits that stop us in our tracks.

If someones life has been completely plain sailing then good for them.

Most of us live in the real world.

A world where we have to work on our mindset and our confidence and develop skills we weren’t naturally blessed with.

Takeaway – it’s not good enough to simply get results for yourself or for other people.

You have to instill belief in your audience despite their personal challenges and experiences so they can trust they can get the results you promise.

…and then follow through and deliver.

The 5 things above probably arent something you’ve really thought about.

Which is awesome.

Because now you have opportunities to improve.

As always.

I don’t want you to nod your head and tell me I’ve shared something great with you.

I want you to go out there and get some results.

If what I have can help? You’re welcome to join us

Y’all have just over 48 hours left until we shut up shop

Whatever you decide?

How To Make More Money And Get Sh*t Done

How to make all the monies and get more shit done than you thought possible for £10

See that behind me?

The wall of my living room is COVERED in ‘magic whiteboard’ paper

I started doing this end of last year

The sheer amount of work I have got done (and NEW revenue generated has been silly)

I’m a bit fan of writing things down (you would be AMAZED how many people want to get ahead but don’t do this simple thing) but by having it front and centre in my living room?

I’m reminded CONSTANTLY about what work needs to be done, as well as all the little – but important – jobs I have been able to cross off

There is no way I would of been able to plan the event in my head – and probably would of struggled using a notepad or app

I can cross off actions that need to be taken as well as see what else needs to be done

Plus, because I have my day time planned (I have times blocked off) I can look up at a glance and see how on track I am

Now you may not want to cover your living room – but I would advice you have something like this up where you see if often

Just by being constantly reminded I’ve been able to smash through content that needed to be done

Equally when I was ill I could map out where I needed to allocate resources and apply

Simple tip but will change ya life I promise

How To Package Your Expertise Into a Digital Product

Digital products are a favourite of the online world for a good reason.

You can take what you know, turn it into a product, and sell it again and again and again to thousands of people with minimal time and effort once initially created.

Particularly appealing to those in service based businesses who’s income is massively restricted by the fact there is only so much of them to go around.

Is it completely passive income?

Is it fuck

You still need to make sure people are looked after and get what they need.

You still have to launch and promote it

You still haveto show up for your people.

You still have to keep it updated so it stays relevant if it’s not entirely evergreen.

That said, it’s pretty close to passive and you can create a whole lot of positive impact in the world (and a whole lot of positive impact on your bank balace) by turning your expertise into a digital product.

Some fly, others flop and even more still never actually get made in the first place because smart people like you hold themselves back.

Here’s 5 steps to overcome all that and get your digital product out there into the world.

Step 1: Get good at something

…as in actually know what the fuck it is you’re talking about

Do NOT fall into the trap of being led to believe all you need is to read a few books on a topic, record a course and sell all of the copies and live happily ever after.

It’s not ethical AND it wont last.

Because people really don’t like being scammed.

You have to genuinely know what you’re talking about.

If you’ve got experience and results for people, you’re good to go.

Passionate but don’t know enough?

Find someone who IS an actual expert in the area you want to help people.

Often there will be people put there with all of the smarts but no clue how to market it and don’t want to be the ringleader in centre stage.

You can work out a deal to split course profits and share their knowledge.

That way you ensure quality and results from what you’re selling and can develop from there.

Step 2: Research your market.

For a start, you want to know:

What they want
What they need
What they are willing to pay for
The challenges they face
What they know and what they don’t know
How they feel about their current situation
Their fears for the future
What makes them feel shame

Without knowing these things, you’re running on pure luck and could fid yourself doing all of the work and selling fuck all because they don’t want to buy it.

Your research helps 2 things

Your copy
Your course content

Step 3: Outline your course

Your expertise and your research help form your course content.

Brain dump everything down on paper to get it out of your head.

Then index cards or mind maps are great for getting it organised into some form of logical order.

You’ll want an intro that lays out expectations and an outline of the course then to roll into course content starting with any foundational information or prep they need.

Then build from there step by step what they need to do to get results.

Finally you’ll want to add any advanced or bonus steps at the end.

This means you make it super easy to follow and get results and then people can move on and improve by following additional/advanced trainings.

Step 4: Create your course

Sometimes steps 4 & 5 switch or happen at the same time depending on how you work best and how much of a lead up is needed to launch.

Also, how much of a team you have to help.

Course creation is pretty straightforward because you’ve done the groundwork.

Take your course outline and create slides for it.

Use something like Loom to record your screen as you go through the training and you can mix in slides and over the shoulder screen capture where suitable.

For some of you, you’ll record these live via a webinar using something like GoTo Webinar.

If running live, you’ll launch first and record with your clients there.

You’ll also want to look at adding things like PDF notes and worksheets to go alongside the trainings.

Not critical but good to have.

You may want to do your first launch without them and then upgrade the course by adding them in for a future launch.

This reduces.the workload a little so you have less that could potentially delay and hold you back.

Step 5: Run a seeded launch

A seeded launch is one to your current audience and brings up the topic in advance of the launch and teases that something is coming.

This raises interest and intrigue and prepares people because they know there is something to watch out for and keep a lil spare cash around ready for it to come.

We all have busy lives with plenty of things pulling our attention so it also helps to make the problem you solve a top of mind priority.

This way when you do launch you aren’t springing up out of nowhere with a big fat “buy my shit” talking about solving a problem they haven’t thought about for weeks.

Launching a product isn’t as complicated as it seems.

This is something you can do and do well.

BUT

It’s easy for products to flop if you’ve not done the above right.

In EWD we have a whole entire course just on this.

It walks you through everything step by step

AND

I’m the next couple of weeks we’ll be kicking off the Futureproof your 2020 challenge where you will get live coaching to set up your strategy for 2020 AND prepare your launch in detail.

This way when the calendar ticks over, you won’t be stuck in confusion and overwhelm figuring out what the fuck you need to do to get your business moving.

Youl simply follow your plan each step of the way and launch your next offer with ease.

This is just 1 of the 5 BIG month long trainings you can find in the vault along with 300+hrs of trainings on just about every topic an entrepreneur needs to thrive in 2020 and beyond.

EWD is open until midnight on Wednesday (tomorrow!)

When you join you get access to:

He is currently working his way through the vault and putting together a playbook for each topic, so that not only have you got the original training, but also a clear, step by step blueprint of how to actually ACTION to content too…..

Priority booking and discounts to events like the Extravaganza

Monthly “Get Shit Done” zoom calls. We all get on the screen, set ourselves goals for what we’re going to do, then, most importantly Get Shit Done.

Monthly “Hot Seat” calls. We all get online, then one by one, you get coached by me (and sometimes others) to sort out the most pressing issues in your business. (Full disclosure, I’ll probably call you a minge or something, but only coz you are!)

Private content, coaching and treats I only share in EWD

The weekly EWD only Digest. An email that rounds up all the best bits from EWD and CWD so you NEVER miss the good stuff. Plus, its fucking hilarious!

Weekly accountability. We set goals at the start of the week, check in midweek and check out/review at the end of the week.

Confidence Is Attractive

Confidence; it gets you paid and it gets you laid….

(And how do you ‘level up’ someone who has little/none)

^^ this was adapted from a post I saw from one of my ex private coaching clients Chris Laub in his copy group

I hadn’t seen it (since I had been laid up for the last 48 hours) but was tagged in as an ‘anomaly’ in that when I came onto the copywriting ‘scene’

I came out swinging

My prices?

Premium

My service and work

The same

BUT

Even if it wasn’t (and 700k a month for my clients would say they were pretty good)

I instilled confidence in my clients because I was confident

They felt they had made a ‘smart buying decision’ and how I made them feel about their investment was just as important

If you act like a little bitch that’s what your are going to be treated like

A little bitch

No one is attracted to weakness

Confidence – in life and in business – is sexy

People are drawn to confidence

It’s attractive

To big have and be around

Believe it or not?

I was a shy little soft cock for a long time

It’s only when I was forced to go out on the street every day (when I was a headhunter) and I had to get an email address

(This may sound batshit but bear with)

Reason being they thought I was in my mid 20’s

I had just turned 19

They didn’t want me there

They wanted me out

Because I was such a little bitch I accepted it and did it

I was scared

I needed the money

I had no other choice

So every fucking lunchtime I had to get an email address – that they would email – if it bounced back

I was sacked

So every day I had to metaphorically cradle my tiny little balls and go out and somehow persuade a
Fucking stranger to give me their email

It was hell

But I did it

And was one of the best things I’ve ever done

Works with the opposite sex too

Is anyone attracted to weakness?

I say no

Desperation
Neediness
Attention seeking

^^ all
Huge turn offs

Same in life
Same in business

Confidence kills in all aspects of life

Now, I’m fortunate to be able to work with hundreds and thousands of people – and this confidence issue I see time and time again

So how the fuck do you help someone be confident

Not project
Not ‘fake it till you make it’
Not act

Proper
100%
Internal
Complete
Confidence

How do you help someone own their shit, and become the person they want to be instead of being crippled by their lack of confidence

I think it’s a massively important area and being confident (NOT arrogant – that’s for another discussion) is key to getting ahead in life

Your thoughts?

(Oh and I chose this pic because I look handsome as fuck – and even if I didn’t – I’d act that same way anyways ha. I posted this on my wall a year ago today thought was epic and wanted to share here)

StopTOBER

Anyone else doing ‘STOPTOBER’ this month (aka going alcohol free?)

Or do you struggle with drinking and could do with a place to talk/share freely?

Thought I would use the group to do some good

😀

It’s no secret that I used to have a bit of a problem with drink (as an ‘FYI’ both of these were consumed in 2 days 4 years ago!)

I’ve now been sober for 20 months and not only do I not miss it – but am day to day the happiest, most conscious and stable I’ve ever been

For me?

Removing drink from my life was a GAMECHANGER

Don’t get me wrong I had some AMAZING (and funny/filthy) times when I was drinking but it got to the point where it no longer served me hence it’s gone

I made a promise and I stuck to it

Now the group is for entrepreneurs who want to get shit DONE; but I’ve tried all manner of things and seen ups/downs with alcohol

So wanted to open up the group for an open discussion around this for anyone who is a) doing the challenge or b) wants to talk about their relationship with alcohol

I am NOT a licensed medical professional so can’t/won’t give any advice in that vein i can just share my experiences and some things that worked for me

Equally if anyone is struggling with this – sometimes just talking about it makes a huge difference

If you want to share anything whether that be your experiences with going sober, any struggles you might have or questions

Feel free to comment below

(And if you can offer advice too that would be welcomed)

Bit of a different CWD post but one that – I think – could be useful
