This week's episode is not a puffed-up pep talk (although there maybe some motivational side effects). When I say THIS is the time to become an entrepreneur, I mean it...And I have 7 great reasons that back it up.

 

  • [00:00] Intro / Why now?
  • [01:00] Let's define "entrepreneur" (Ryan Moran)
  • [02:05] No retreat!
  • [02:19] Seven reasons why...
    1. [02:22] Now is the time to re-form the habits that shape your future. (Think if you had saved $500 a month 20 years ago). Right habits are NECESSARY for SURVIVAL ... but don’t live in SURVIVAL MODE! “Act to survive, form habits to thrive.”
    2. [03:13] Build your business to scale, and begin to lay the foundation now with un-scalable actions. (You are more “Scalable” than you think!)
    3. [05:52] Invest in assets, attention and people - all are on sale. “Invest in acquisition of attention today, be wealthy tomorrow.”
    4. [08:27] There is less competition, because people behave like sheep; when they fear, they huddle. “When the tide goes out, we instantly see who was skinny-dipping.”
    5. [10:44] There is a land-grab available, and it won’t last. “Those who make the widest and deepest deposits of their best ideas and value will win the long game.”
    6. [14:10] During recession, if you are creating & building, you are 2-5 years ahead of everyone else. “Rational optimism is the ultimate advantage, and it is both attractive and contagious.”
    7. [15:17] Start now, where are you are, with what you have. It is impossible to drive a car that is parked in the garage.

How should entrepreneurs view economic recession? Is it "brace for impact", or "full speed ahead"?

I've lived through enough periods of recession to know this:

Any entrepreneur can USE the recession to proposer. You just need to keep these 10 principles in mind…

 

  • [00:19] What's happening?
  • [02:23] Always be making offers
  • [02:47] Always give a reason why for immediate action
  • [03:07] Always be clear and directive in what you write
  • [03:40] Always track and measure with ruthless accuracy
  • [04:10] Always use zero cost brand building via social media
  • [04:45] Always use strong sales copy
  • [05:24] The fortune is in the follow up
  • [06:14] Always make your ads look like mail order
  • [06:50] Results decide
  • [07:16] Use pigheaded discipline, delegation, automation, and elimination to develop marketing habits
