188 - How to Apply Extreme Ownership in Your Business

This week, Josh and I talk about Jocko Willink. If you don’t know Jocko, he’s a retired Navy SEAL officer, podcaster, and author of a best-selling book called Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. His ideas are so powerful that we adopted extreme ownership as one of our key values at ReminderMedia. What Jocko has to say about running a successful team could make the difference between running a business that gets by and having a business that gives you a life of freedom. If you apply his Four Laws of Combat to your operation, your business will achieve a level of precision and discipline that will catapult you to success. Get ready to get pumped!

187 - From Welfare to $200K in One Year with Cody Butler

Cody Butler has an incredible story about how a change in his mindset and what he believed propelled him from making less than $10K to making $200K in one year! Cody tells his story and shares with Luke and me what inspired him to write The 90-Day Marketing Plan, which helps small business owners position themselves for long-term success. He does it by first instilling in his clients that regardless of what they produce, they are in the business of marketing. He also coaches them on how and where to spend their marketing budget. And he preaches that the 80-20 rule can and should be applied to every aspect of their business. If you’re struggling or wondering why your business isn’t performing like you want it to and what you can do about it, then this is the episode for you.

183 - #1 Agent in the Nation Shares Step-By-Step Secrets to Converting Leads

Michael Hellickson was the #1 agent in the nation before he went back to a very successful coaching career. We had such a great time speaking with Michael that since the interview, the staff keep teasing Luke and me for having a “bromance” with him. The truth is, this Michael is so good at what he does, is so generous, and is so full of practical, “how to” tips that I bet you’re going to have your own crush. He gives away ALL the secrets to lead generation, lead follow up, and lead conversion. Make sure you’ve got paper and a pen when you listen. You’re going to want to take notes. Among all the insight he shares, he gives away the six steps to following up; the 3x3x3 method that explains how often to follow up; and a fool-proof way to get people to answer your calls.

182 - How to Reverse Engineer Your Goals

I say it all the time … know your numbers. If you don’t know your numbers, if you aren’t tracking your metrics, then you have no idea what is working and what isn’t. You don’t know if you should do more of one thing or stop doing something else. More importantly, you have no idea what actions are making you money and what actions are simply wasting your value time and resources. At best, you’re making uneducated guesses. In this episode, Josh and I talk about the importance of tracking your numbers and we explain exactly how to do it. It starts with knowing your goals, and we give you a free spreadsheet to make the work easy. Stop feeling your way and know with certainty what you need to do every single day to achieve your dream. - Luke

181 - Why Andy Dane Carter Tripled His Marketing Budget

Luke and I couldn’t be happier to interview Andy Dane Carter for a second time. Andy is an agent who has worked for years with investment properties. And recently (after eating a big slice of humble pie) has successfully added residential sales to his repertoire. Andy is a fan of Stay Paid, and the feeling is mutual. He’s living proof that investing in branding and building relationships pays off. And he knows through personal experience, which he shares during this interview, that sticking with his marketing plan and having the patience to it takes to build trust works. You’ll discover what Andy needed to do to successfully transition from working with investment properties to residential homes. He explains why “lead follow-up is a 1,000 times more important than lead generation.” Plus, he talks about believing that business is first about customer service, then about marketing, and lastly … everything else.

179 - Shark Tank's Kevin Harrington on Mentoring and Meeting Goals

I think that aside from the advice that Kevin Harrington, one of the original sharks on Shark Tank, gives about how to find a mentor, working with a mentor, and why having mentors is so great, the best part of this interview was listening to Kevin tell the stories of his own experiences with his mentors. He has so many examples of how he met someone who knew someone else, who then got him money, or an introduction, or a job—whatever he needed at the time. The key is to talk to people and to not be afraid to ask. Key Points How to find a mentor is really a question about how to build relationships. Look to friends, relatives, professional organizations—people who can put you in touch with other people who can help. But also look to people you interact with during the course of doing business—suppliers, distributors, financiers, lawyers, accountants. They could be a valuable connection and should be willing to help. Shifts in mindset, which a mentor can often provide, can move you ...
