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

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

In loving memory…

This Thursday we celebrate what would have been the 85th birthday of one of my greatest mentors and continued source of inspiration – Mr. Jim Rohn. It is cause for me to pause one more time to offer gratitude for the profound influence this man had on my life (and the lives of millions of others).

Jim gave his very first public seminar in 1963. Over the next 40 years, he used his unique gifts as a thought-provoking speaker, storyteller and philosopher to captivate audiences and encourage people to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.

Jim always said one of his greatest desires was to have his name be part of someone else’s testimonial.   And while Jim has moved beyond our earthly domain, his wisdom lives on and continues to ignite the flames of possibility, and his name is inscribed in the success stories of millions of people he inspired. Now, if you’ll indulge me for moment, I’d like to share my own Jim Rohn story... CONTINUE TO POST

Swimming with the Sharks

“I’m not a scrub pimp… so, I’m out,” Mark Cuban said on the reality TV series Shark Tank where entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to investors (the sharks).

Cuban was the second shark to utter the “I’m out” words behind Robert Herjavec who said he didn’t see “the retail vision” of a smiley-faced sponge called Scrub Daddy.

Suddenly Aaron Krause, the CEO of Scrub Daddy, finds himself as bait in a fierce shark fight.

Shark Daymond John offers to partner with Lori Greiner for 15 percent. “Well here’s the thing,” Lori says. “I don’t need you,” and cuts him out swiftly (ouch!).

Then Kevin O’Leary swims in and slashes both of them off at the fins with a creative finance deal. He proposes a zero percent equity deal (gasp!) for royalties in perpetuity.

Now there’s blood in the water, and a real frenzy ensues... CONTINUE READING

Don’t Fall to your Stress (or Death!)

You look down.
Below you is a thin tightrope wire, a mere 2 inches thick.

One thousand three hundred and sixty-two feet below that is the unforgiving pavement of the streets of New York City.

You see them, busy people rushing off to work, school, home wherever they are heading— as you take your first step across the sky.

At first, no one notices you.
“Maybe that’s for the better,” you think. “It’d only add to the pressure.”

But you thought too soon.
A man stops. He looks up and sees you, a speck against the clouds.
Your heart rate rises.
This is getting real... CLICK FOR MORE

Be a LION (Pt 2 of 2)

Last week in part 1 of this series, I introduced you to Coach K and what makes him a lead lion. Now, I would be doing you a great disservice if I didn’t give you some final coaching on what to do with all you learned here. So today, I am going to do you one better than that.

Let me help summarize and organize the different coaches you want to consider obtaining and what their purpose into a clear and actionable plan for you. I’ll outline them briefly now and then provide a worksheet for you at the end so that you can design and develop your coaching team.

Okay, first of all are your two sets of advisors—your inner circle and your outer circle... GO TO POST
