Something I Never Thought I’d Have To Utter
There are LOTS of changes in life and how you adapt AND move forward will be key to your future success
How you may of done business until the coronal shit show may have completely changed – but there is nothing you can do about the past; ALL you can do is take action NOW to change the future
Whether you like it or not – this is the situation we are in
If you can keep your head straight? You WILL come out the other side
If everything has gone nipples north? Then I feel for you – one of my physical businesses had to close for now as well
But after the intimate pity party, we just got on with it and made a bad situation pretty fucking good
If you need help? Now is NOT the time to bury your head in the sand – now is the time to invest in YOU and YOUR skills (free or paid) and figure out how you can not survive but THRIVE on the other side
(Ask for help and seek out those who can shorten the journey to getting where you need to go)
As someone who has been ‘online’ for several years this is NORMAL for me – but for many of you it’s alien
If you need some ideas you have my group too help you
If you want more help and have some £ spare you have my coaching group ‘Espresso With Dan’ or you’re welcome to DM me if you need a pointer or two
This is life right now; so come to terms with it – as best you can – get guidance, then get GOING
Good luck 😘read more
How I Face Tough Times
A life lesson about (eventual) success
A trait of mine is resilience
Ain’t the smartest or most gifted or whatever
I can take a physical or emotional kicking better than most people I know
It was not always this way
I was a weak, timid, fearful young man that would actively do anything to avoid pain or confrontation or stress
Now? I fucking THRIVE off it
Because I can only say this after a) experiencing, b) enduring and then c) succeed AFTER I’ve been through the shit
One thing that is so often overlooked is the ability to endure
The ability to keep going when you don’t want to
And – in my case – borderline probably psychiatric disorder in the ability to stay positive no matter how many beatings I get
Life is an absolute bastard at time’s
My January was pure hell; I honestly don’t know how I managed it TBH and I my say this now OUT THE OTHER SIDE but I had to because so many people rely on me
So I didn’t bitch or moan just did what needed to be done
(If you keep going) Hard times create strong people and as much as I hated periods in my life they gave me the resilience and strength to keep going
I’m finding this current situation WAY less stressful as compare to January this is nicer
(Yeah it was that bad…)
Whatever life is throwing at you now take your beatings and get back up; shit gets easier over time and once you have navigated a few fuckeries you have well of strength and energy to draw on when you need it most
Time to shine fuckers 😘read more
Why You Should Join EWD Post# 1 of 4
As you’ve probably gathered, Espresso With Dan is now open:
And if you were reading along yesterday, you’ll have seen that this week you’re gonna get one email a day from me, in as NON-hypey as I can way
You see, normally when we launch EWD?
Le me goes into full on old school direct response mode
(I was quite good back in the day 🙃)
And, because I AM pretty good with the old persuasive words, I can get nudge people who are on the fence to jump off it
Let’s be clear.
I have no moral or ethical problem doing this (and neither should you if you if your product/service is sound and helps folks)
I’m happy to do this I know that the value in EWD is fab
And if you put a bit of effort in?
The investment you make will be repaid time and time again
It would be different if what I was selling was a load of old shit
But I’m not, so we’re good
Anyway, like I was saying, this week?
You’re gonna get some emails from me that will be somewhat whimsical and as non-hypey as I can
(Very much features as opposed to benefits)
For 2 reasons
Regardless of the immense value offered in EWD, now is NOT the time to be strong arming people
I only want people who are 100% committed to taking their businesses and personal lives to the next level in EWD
If I go full tilt direct response?
The vast majority of people that come over will benefit hugely from EWD, but 1 or 2 will only be there because they got carried away and excited
And right now people need to be sensible and people need to be smart
Hence at the moment?
I only want to work with peeps who able and WANT to push THROUGH this shit show WITHOUT breaking their ‘bank’ (financially, mentally or physically)
Peeps that need a bit of help and direction, but are willing to put the effort in to make it work.
Everywhere you look right now?
There’s a LOT of spammy shit being touted
And I’m a contrarian little arse
So I’m gonna do it differently
It’s all about the features baby lol
Hence today, I want to tell you about THE VAULT
The Vault is where keep all the good stuff
About 200 hours of the good stuff in fact.
Trainings, webinars, round tables on pretty much ANYTHING you could imagine business or personal wise.
Including 8 end to end courses.
Family and Relationships
And that’s just for starters.
Want access to all that?
3 months, £285 all in, no ongoing commitment unless you want it
Here’s comes the link again:
PS tomorrow is my ‘down day’
It’s arts and crafts shenanigans with my sister
I AM available on DM’s all day so any Q’s hit me up
Sinner or Saint?
Sinner or saint?
Sis is at best challenging…so I told her the government will arrest us if we don’t go for a walk every day….
Ultimately though, right now?
We have to take advantage of everything we can while we can WHILE giving a fuck – more of a fuck than ever before it seems – about each other
There were a few of us lapping the big lawn – all a good 10 meters apart
Have to give a fuck in 2020
Being a selfish just can’t be a thing when it comes to society anymore
Ya know what
I’ve defo sinned…
– some of its been some seriously sticky fun –
Don’t some shit I regret
– we all have –
…but how’s the time to be a bit more of a saint eh
Look after your loved ones CWD
Do what you can to make a difference xread more
Selling In This Current Pandemic
Selling through a shitstorm with Sarah Jolley-Jarvis
The lovely Sarah is going the love coaching in the ‘MAKE BANK’ group tomorrow
She made this today for everyone
If you need to sell anything ever?
Give this a read
Don’t get in the way of your business…and your customers
So many people are concerned over selling in this current ‘climate’…
Lots of people I’m talking to are resistant to ‘making money out of this situation’
The thing is revenue gives you choices:
You can scale to increase awareness and help more people.
You can keep a roof over your own head: remember you need to put your own oxygen mask on first.
If you can truly help people, meet their needs or simply just make their life that little bit easier for them during this time then why wouldn’t you?
Nobody is making them buy what you sell, your job is to make them aware of it…and make it as easy as possible to buy if they want to…if they see the value then they will buy.
If you don’t meet their needs someone else will.read more

You are going to see a LOT of new resources coming your way
(EWD peeps you have seen some of the new tools and resources coming over the next 12 weeks post ‘MAKE BANK’)

I asked the boys who run my fitness business to create some ‘at home’ workouts and they are here for you:
Full body workout #1

(And I’ll be adding a kettlebell workout later)

One Day When This Is All Over
Now is the time to show the world what you can do
I’ve spoken across various platforms about themes of:
– Stepping up
– Taking ownership
And in these trying times – and trust me I am 100% aware that this is coming from ME: remaining calm (as best you can), staying positive, (as best you can) and taking action are going to be key things to focus on
Whether you serve 10’s, 100’s, 1000’s or 10’s of 1000’s if you have a following, community, subscribers or group
People are looking for YOU to lead them
People are wanting YOU to step up and show them the way
People need someone to help them navigate troubled waters
People need an arm around the shoulder and, from time to time, a foot up the arse
Now I write this knowing full well that some of you RIGHT NOW?
You are more than entitled to be upset, angry and worried
And yes you may think ‘it’s ok for you Dan’ but as I’ve said across the baronies platforms that I mentioned earlier
I have people that rely on me
75% of my family are in the high times category
There are people depending on me so they can pay their bills
I have to pay for care and support
There are those you know nothing about and will never know about that I keep going
If I go down?
I’ve stepped up everything everywhere and sure as shit I will do what I need to do to get what I need to done ethically
^^^ I’ll do that with as much energy and positivity as I can muster; and use every fucking bit of my creativity to drag/motivate/cajole/bully/motivate/leverage/do – whatever I have to to to get those I serve what THEY need as best I can
Times like these?
Show you what you are made of
If life’s fucked you I am truly fucking sorry; I don’t know your situation but I’ve spent times essentially homeless, I’ve lived out of what I could forage from bins and lost everything!
And you will be too IF you keep your head up and if you endure – and yes you will have to endure
And endure you will
If I can help?
I’m doing all I can over in CWD and sharing stuff to keep you going? Give you ideas and make you smile
(If talk about what I’m doing next week for FREE but you can find out about that yourself you in the group)
I’m doing what I can when I can where I can
All this fuckery WILL be over
But people are relying on you now to step up, to lead, to show the way and to provide for them
Be the fucking person deep down you know you know you can be and lead
Yes these are trying times but keep your head straight, do what you can and fucking refuse to quit
As long as you are still alive and well you can DO and yes it might be fucking shit RIGHT NOW but you WILL get through the other side
If you need it my inbox is open, the group is available for you
Don’t let this fucker beat you
Keep goingread more
Make Bank 2.0 – The ‘Stay Yo Ass AT Home’ Edition
Now is the time to LEAD
Quite frankly there is a LOT of uncertainty right now
People are panicking…
Media stoked fear is running rife…
Turn on your TV, scroll through your feed, open your emails, there it is Corona-fucking-virus
And here we are, entrepreneurs, just trying to make sure everyone’s fed and the bills are paid…
…let’s face it it’s not like we chose an easy route as it is
Something that I think is causing the most amount is stress is the fact we haven’t got a fucking clue where this is gonna be over
I’m convinced that a lot of the problem is that we just don’t know where it’s going and how it’s going to end
We can’t control it
So today I’m gonna suggest you just concentrate on the things you CAN control
As I said yesterday I’m NOT going to give health advice as you likely already know what to do and are doing it
But more than that?
Concentrate on your business
Because whatever happens over the next few weeks/months
I don’t know when but IT WILL GET BETTER
One day we will be looking back on our Facebook memories at the time people lost their shit I’ve toilet paper!
We will get back to “business as usual”
But if you let yourself get too caught up in the hysteria NOW?
Your business WILL take a hit
Then when it calms down, it’ll be an uphill struggle to get it going again
So now is the time to be putting in that bit extra to make 100% certain your business not only survives, but THRIVES
And my job is to help you do that
Easiest thing in the world for me now, would be to YEET it all off and keep my head down til it’s all passed.
I could make sure the fam is sorted and just stay out the way
But I simply can’t do that
You see the last 7 years of my life have been dedicated to making sure the people that trust me enough to open my emails, and follow my socials have what they need to GET SHIT DONE and SMILE while they do it
Back end of 2019?
I did the first ever ‘MAKE BANK’ challenge
Now people need this more than ever and for that reason we’re doing it again.
Starting in a few days time we’re starting the:
Make Bank 2.0 – The ‘Stay Yo Ass AT Home’ Edition
It’s gonna be bigger and better than before
I will give you as many strategies as I can cram in, daily coaching and (favours cashes in) expert help you need to Make Bank now AND going forward
It will give you the focus and structure you need NOW to drive your business forward, right through the middle of this complete shit storm
I’ll be taking lessons from GRIT 1.0 and GRIT RED Edition to help the fear and panic you might be feeling and – hopefully – turn into something good
Cards on the table – Join the challenge? There will be the opportunity to join us in EWD at the end (but only for a short time, and only got those who want extra support and advice for the next 90 days)
That’s not the main reason I’m doing this
If you do the challenge, make bank then decide EWD is not for you?
IM BEYOND HAPPY ABOUT THAT
This is NOT about hard selling you into EWD but I AM leading by example
I’m getting my fucking head down and doing what I had planned to do before this all happened
⁃ just pivoting as many of us are –
The reason I’m doing this now is so I can share with you the skills, tactics and methods you need keep moving
This next bit gonna seem a bit weird but go with me
When shit goes wild = I shine
Since I was 5 years old I’ve had to deal with my sisters health issues and saved her life twice
I got CALM when shit gets SPICY
Times like this?
I can keep your ass going and provide a bit of stability and structure when you need it must
(That and I’m fucking funny and y’all need to smile through a shit storm)
I know my stuff, I’m stepping the fuck up and I want to help as many people as I can ride this out and – all being well – thrive too
If you have joined the group already
About 450 of ya now
Join the group here:
And let me do what I do best
Keep Going, we’ll get through this!
PS My email is still open if you want to get some shit off your chest – it’s email@example.com
PPS if you are this thinking that you can’t benefit from this or don’t have an online biz?
But I’ll be sharing some ways to make ££ online and level up your skills in other areas too – as a team we throwing a lot at this
The WORSE thing that can happen by joining is you’re motivated for a week and maybe get inspired to do **something** new
Give it a shot:read more

Then do me a favour? Whack your details in below - and I’ll send you an email every day for 7 days straight telling you exactly how I #getshitdone; all while working less hours, making more money and actually having a life!
