How to Build A Billion-Dollar Business

want tell you how to build a Billion-Dollar Business.
Oh, you don’t think you are capable or qualified to build a billion dollar business?
Well that thought is incorrect.

You see, success is an equal opportunist.
Success is blind to things like gender, age, race and especially background.
Some of the wealthiest and most successful people you know or have heard of come from a background filled with hardships and even poverty.

That’s the American Dream, right?
Start with nothing, end with everything you could possibly dream of. There are quite a few examples of people I could pinpoint who have lived the American Dream and left their mark on the world, most you have probably heard of. This is one you might not be as familiar with... CONTINUE READING

Trying to be more successful can be stressful, am I right?

It seems the bigger your goals, the greater your ambition... also the greater your stress.

I lived most of my life like that: Big goals… and big stress.

But after spending time with many of the world’s greatest achievers I discovered something…
They don’t.

Some of the most relaxed, present and attentive people I’ve met are the ones with the biggest responsibilities and the big ‘B’ next to their net worth.

How do they do it (all)?

That is what I am going to attempt to explain in a special 10-part video series I’m delivering exclusively through DarrenDaily.

Conquering Connecting pt 1

“Everyone looks so much better when they smile.”
That is a quote from Jimmy Fallon, who you now know of as the host of the legendary “The Tonight Show.”

What a meteoric ride that guy has had to the top?
How did he do it?
How did Jimmy, son of an IBM machine repairman, get to the chair once occupied by maybe the most legendary figure in comedy TV for 30 years straight, Johnny Carson? Oh yeah, the same chair Jay Leno sat for 20 years too.

He did it through... CLICK TO CONTINUE

How to Attack Deliberate Practice: 4 steps

Last week I shared an example of deliberate practice through the story of Kobe Bryant and his insane work ethic. Now before you can attack this idea of deliberate practice, let me help further define it for you so you know how.

Deliberate practice is a highly structured and highly engaged activity with the specific goal of improving performance. Deliberate practice is different from work, play and simple repetition of a task. It requires effort and it is not necessarily inherently enjoyable. When you engage in deliberate practice, improving your performance over time is your goal and motivation.

That’s not to say that deliberate practice can’t be designed to be fun, but it isn’t inherently enjoyable on its own. If you want to gain skills rapidly or approach expert-level status at something, you must understand the importance of deliberate practice and learn how to incorporate it into your daily process.

Now let me give you the steps to attacking deliberate practice... CONTINUE TO POST

Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect

Last week I shared with you an incredible example of success in development through the story of Clyde’s several reinventions. This week, to equip you for your own epic journey, I want to challenge you to attack the idea of deliberate practice. This is really the action plan for mastery in any endeavor you wish to excel at.

My interview with K. Anders Ericsson proved that so-called “gifted”, “talented” or “experts” aren’t people with freakish natural abilities in a particular domain. Experts, have become so, only by maintaining high-levels of practice, over a long sustained period of time and improving their performance along the way.

In other words, it’s not about what you’re born with.
It’s about how consistently and deliberately you can work to improve yourself.

Now, let’s be candid, ... CONTINUE READING

The Epic Odyssey

The entrepreneur journey is usually an epic odyssey--one YOU can succeed at as Clyde is going to prove, no matter how old (or young) or your prior experience (failure or lack thereof).

I recently visited a local California farmers’ market and met Clyde, the owner of the Desert Olive Farms booth. Clyde looks like your quintessential cowboy; but as we talked I got the sense that this guy had seen more than just a few rodeos.

Like many of the great masters of reinvention, Clyde started early... CONTINUE TO POST

“Holy Productivity Batman!”

Last week I discussed how you could activate your productivity superpowers by turning on your Stress and Pressure response signals. This week, I want to give you further tips on how to put your superpowers into high gear so you can kick major butt when it comes to your arch nemesis Procrastination.

So let me ask you this, where would Batman be without Robin? Maverick without Goose? Sherlock Holmes without Watson? Hey, even Hans Solo without Chewbacca? My point being, we need to find you a sidekick. A productivity butt-kicking one at that!
You will be amazed at how much more time and energy you have in the day when you can delegate your lower priority tasks and hone in your focus on your most vital priorities (MVPs).

If you’ve read The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster, you are familiar with my story about Maggie, and how much of a rockstar she is at what she does. Maggie is the one that keeps everything running smoothly. And today, I want to help you find your “Maggie.”

Here are the best practices I have learned in hiring virtual and local superhero sidekicks to help me stay focused on high-value functions in my unique strength zone... CONTINUE READING

Become a Productivity Superhero Pt2

Last week I discussed the story of Mariana and how multiplied her productivity output through her newly gained uber-mom super powers. Whether or not you are also a uber-mom, I want to be sure you are fully battle ready to conquer the productivity disease that is Parkinson’s Law.

Hey, we ALL suffer from Parkinson’s Law. It’s part of the human condition. Without applied pressure we will always drift down the stream of least resistance and ease. To access our greater capacity you have to push it out of yourself. You actually have to purposely apply pressure and stress on yourself to activate your super-human abilities.

The first thing to understand is pressure and stress is your friend and your high-performance ally. This is something low achievers don’t understand... CLICK TO CONTINUE

Become a Productivity Superhero Pt1

Since many of you are also one of the dedicated millions that each month puts the SUCCESS Magazine CD in your car or uploads it to your phone and soaks in the wisdom on these tracks, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about someone very important to you (and me). Mariana.

Yes, Mariana is our audio producer extraordinaire.  She is wizard behind the curtain of all the great audio programs—every interview you hear and nugget you discover, Mariana helped me make it happen. She works with me to build the editorial calendar; we decide on the candidates together, and then she handles all the logistics of arranging the interview, coordinating with our interviewee and usually their staff, the recording producers, transcriptionists, production editors, printing, packaging, promotion and fulfillment, and so much more. Mariana was one of the most organized, efficient and productive people I knew.

said “was” because then, Mariana had her first baby. While I was thrilled for Mariana and the exquisite creature that is baby Rose, in all candor, just between you and me, I was a little worried I wouldn’t have the same Mariana my life depends on, post-Rose’s grand debut.

I was afraid Mariana would be different—let’s face it, no woman becomes a mother and remains unchanged. And I was right. Mariana was different, but not in the way I expected... CONTINUE TO POST
