Gino Wickman is a legend among entrepreneurs. He’s been a mentor and thought leader to those who want to scale their businesses in ways they didn’t think possible. Now, Gino focuses his attention on helping people just getting started with their business.

His book, Entrepreneurial Leap, is a guidebook focused on helping entrepreneurs succeed in business. Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? This book is going to help you figure that out.

Gino believes that entrepreneurs are born with the traits to succeed, they are not learned. Not everyone has what it takes (and that's ok).

Then join us in the Discord community to discuss.

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Entrepreneurship - Is it nature or nurture?
  • How Gino created a business by talking with people
  • How Gino got started as an entrepreneur

What a great conversation with Mark Lack from ShortenTheGap.com, who is such a baller! We first connected with Mark in the Steal Our Winners program, which is awesome and highly recommended. He’s been talking about the model which we are very interested in, and we love the fact that he broke down the tactics of what we have been discussing in our business lately. We talk a lot about YouTube and if you are seeing a lot of people talking about getting yourself on YouTube, it’s still not too late. Facebook is being more restrictive than ever whereas on the Google/YouTube platforms, we feel they are giving us more opportunities to build out your brand and your flywheel.  

We love the way that Mark thinks, as he’s a branding guy. He talks about how he was studying the legends at a young age, while he was becoming one of the world’s most well-known paintballers. He then discusses why you need to use marketing for not only your audience, but throwing your marketing budget and time at the guests and brands you want to connect with. And if you are just starting out and don’t have any episodes to show to sponsors, he’ll let you know what to do there as well. When you’re done listening, be sure to check out our other shows with Lisa Buyer and Justin Schenck for some additional chats on how to connect with the right folks while building your brand. 

Celebrities only care about timing and attention…if the timing is right, and you guarantee enough attention and eyeballs, any celebrity will say yes.” - Mark Lack

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Being a loser in school while earning $300K as a professional paintball star
  • How to get more of what you want by helping people get what they want
  • Getting a massive discount when posting videos to Facebook or Instagram
  • How to pre-guarantee results to the celebrity and sponsor
  • One of the fastest ways to build a really big show
  • How to become more memorable and famous for free
  • What to do if you do not have a backlog of episodes to showcase to sponsors
  • The most important thing you want to do during the first 5 seconds of your video
  • How to connect with event sponsors without even attending

Joe is back with another snackable episode today, and he’s talking about what we have learned from some very smart folks in the business marketing community. This is how online education is being launched these days, leveraging 3.0 web technology. If you are not aware of what that is, Joe will be explaining a bit of what that is today and why you should be paying attention. He’s going to talk about how things are changing in terms of product launches and community launches and why you should be aware of this, because it’s coming fast.

He also discusses some recent examples of folks who have launched new communities, the technology behind it and some examples of cool access perks that anyone can offer or get by being involved. Interested in learning more about this new tech? Then be sure to check out Matt’s recent episode where he chimes in and our chat with Joel Comm who has always been on the forefront of new tech, including this one.

Brands are leveraging this web 3.0 and the NFT technology in creative ways to give access in ways that haven’t been done before.” - Joe Fier

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Why you should be paying attention to Web 3.0
  • The new membership model of the future

We are back for round two with Marshall Sylver, where we had another amazing conversation which we recorded at his Certainty Theater. If you are listening to this episode, make sure you check out the video version at HustleAndFlowchart.tv because you can see behind the scenes of what it looks like inside the Certainty Theater where Marshall runs his stage hypnosis shows. This was a completely different look from most of our videos, so make sure you check this one out. 

Marshall talks about the time he put Joe to sleep on stage, how he has pivoted with his training while still making a huge impact with his students and his analogy of winning both blackjack and at business. He also dives into what he refers to as a new type of podcast and why this method is so enticing. You’ll hear how he became one of the most successful closers today and how he is making a huge difference in his students lives. Want more? Go check out our previous conversations with John Assaraf and Marx Acosta-Rubio for more insight on how to harness the power of our brain to accomplish goals.

It’s the same thing in any business, that if you are not in front of a target rich environment – a prospect that would want what you are selling and could afford to buy it – you are wasting your time.” – Marshall Sylver

Oct 19, 2021

We’re changing a lot of things up over here at Hustle & Flowchart. We’re in the middle of a rebuilding phase, completely overhauling almost everything in our business.

In this quick episode, Matt breaks down one of the big topics we’re going to start to put a ton of focus on. Today we’re talking about Web 3 and decentralization. It’s something that we can avoid anymore. We talked about it with Michael Taggart back in 2017 and we circled back around with Joel Comm in 2021. The first time, our brains weren’t ready for it. We didn’t know what to do with the information other than just throw some money at some cryptocurrencies.

Now, it’s finally clicking and we can’t avoid talking about it. The pandemic has accelerated the Web 3 journey to mainstream and it’s only a matter of months before it becomes the normal way that people do things. This changes everything and those that are still ignoring it or writing it off will really regret that decision in the near future.

“Web 3 will be where almost all future financial opportunities will lie” - Matt Wolfe

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Where we’re taking this podcast in the future
  • “You can plug your ears and maybe the future will go away”
  • What is Web 3?
  • How Web 3 will impact the way people make money
  • How online education is changing as a result
  • What you should study right now...

Dr. John Demartini is a man on a mission and on today’s show you’ll hear how he discovered his life’s passion at a young age. He had a vision of traveling the world while teaching and sharing whatever he’d learned so that it might be of value to help others to master their lives and do something extraordinary. Over his lifetime, he has devoured over 30,000 books and inspired others to find their true passion, sharing his knowledge with the world. 

 

Listen in as you’ll hear stories of some of his students, and how one woman took her love of spending time with her pet and turned it into a multi-million dollar career. He discusses how to stop comparing yourself to others, utilize your forebrain to create visions of your future, and decipher what you value most so that you can then be of value to others. After you’ve listened, be sure to check out our conversations with Marx Acosta-Rubio and Elliot Roe for more information on how to discover what’s holding you back so you can accomplish more with your life.

 

When we fill our day with the highest priority action that inspires us most - that makes the biggest difference and equitable exchange of service, we have found it. And if we do that, we don’t need motivation.” - Dr. John Demartini

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Finding your true passion
  • Aligning your passions with income requirements
  • How one woman made a living because she loved to hang out with her dog
  • How to move past external factors
  • The inner workings of your brain and why you want to light up the front part
  • Getting rid of self sabotage of our idea

Joe is on board today with an important, snackable episode. He’s talking about real, heartfelt stuff, since, as entrepreneurs, digital marketers and those of us who work behind the screen deal with life a little differently than folks who work a traditional job. We have different social aspects that come our way and the last two years have had us in all our bubbles. Joe tells a story from his side of things, and how it’s affected him and what he's learned over the last two years. 

 

He discusses why the last two years have been the most pivotal for both him and our business, in terms of clarity and finding out who we are. We have chatted on the podcast a lot about mental health and this subject is more important than ever. If you find this information helpful, please pass it along, as our goal is to bring this discussion to light and help as many people as possible. Once you are done, be sure to listen to our chats with Anthony Trucks and Angelo Sisco who share their stories of overcoming obstacles and how to put yourself in the right frame of mind.  

 

“We’re living in a world where we are ultra connected, but at the same time we are not really totally connected empathically, where it actually matters and you feel it.” - Joe Fier

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

 

  • What should’ve been one of the happiest times was also one of the saddest
  • Overview of the last two years and why they have been the hardest
  • Things that have helped Joe ‘get his voice back’
  • The pivotal moment that changed everything
  • Self-improvement strategies that seem simple, but really work
  • Dealing with overwhelm and how to break out of that bubble

You are going to love our chat today with Ty Cohen, a longtime entrepreneur, who is now taking over the world of online publishing. There’s a lot of money to be made with Amazon Publishing, and whether you are a writer or not, Ty teaches people how to get your books published in the world’s biggest online bookstore. His students consist of writers who want to get their content out to the masses, authority figures who publish in order to get leads for their courses and high ticket offers, as well as people who use ghostwriters to publish a series of books with a huge audience behind them.

 

Listen in as Ty talks about what niches to publish in, how to find out what your audience is reading before you pick a subject, and how he teaches his students to market. He also discusses where to advertise, how to repurpose your content and where to find people to write for you as well as create audio books. Lastly, Ty chats about some opportunities he has outside of the publishing world and his thoughts on NFTs and leaving a legacy. After you have listened and realized the opportunity behind publishing, check out our chats with Laura Gale and Rob Kosberg for even more insight and vision into the world of self-publishing. 

 

In internet marketing we always hear that you want to go with the niches, which is fine sometimes. But when you want to make a lot of money…when you want to be to the point where you are continuously making cash where it’s hard to shut it off, you want to go where the markets are wide and evergreen.” - Ty Cohen 

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

 

  • What niches to look at when publishing
  • Example of categories where  Ty’s students are crushing it, including Ty’s teenage son who is make $4K a month publishing in one particular category
  • The easiest way to get someone to buy from you
  • Writing a book vs. hiring a ghostwriter
  • Creating a journey for your reader where they will want to buy from you over and over again
  • The one important approach that most non-fiction authors are missing
  • The 3 must have criteria when you are doing your market research
  • How to repurpose the book you’ve already made and where to hire people to make it an easy process

We’re back with another Therapy Session! In this episode, we consider renaming our show (just kidding!) and dive into some of our takeaways from attending the Traffic & Conversion Summit. It was a great event and there was a LOT going on. We chat about  how we set up our booth, some things we learned about the ins and outs of renting a booth, how we changed our tactics as the event went on and some of the amazing people we chatted with while we were there.

 

There were some things we did purposely to make sure our booth was not only one of the most inviting and interesting ones there, but attracted great conversations with attendees and sponsors alike. We also dive into several a-ha moments we got while attending the event and why we have changed our goal for the future. If the idea of making amazing connections to further your business growth excites you, check out our conversations with Justin Schenck and Gary Henderson for more insight into growing your network and connecting with influential people.

 

“We put ourselves right in the middle of the zone to be seen, and then the connectors show up, our friends show up, and subscribers and listeners show up.” - Joe Fier

 

On the expo floor, we had our own little hangout where people were just floating to us and chatting with us the whole time.” - Matt Wolfe

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

 

  • Great advice from Dan, who gets another shoutout - Hi Dan!
  • Matt’s big success that even Joe didn’t know about until just now
  • How we made our booth the most interesting on the floor
  • How we are to become major connectors in our space
  • Some things we learned about running a booth, that we never knew before

We have been searching for someone to speak with about crypto and NFT’s for a while, and it’s nice to circle back around to this subject with Joel Comm. He’s one of the original internet marketers, and he’s a guy who sees trends and has a pretty good hit rate. This is one of those rabbit holes that we’ve gotten into outside of the podcast, and now is a great time to be aware of all the tech and utilities that are associated with a lot of these things. There are so many different ways to use the blockchain technology, and we’d love it if you would let us know if this is something you'd like us to talk about more in future episodes.

Nothing in this episode is financial advice by the way, but it’s valuable to have conversations about it. Joel has been online for years, and he pivots fast and launches on a technology where he can have fun. You will get some great ideas on how Joel approaches tech. The way he explains his pivots is similar to the way we’ve done things as well, as we find little things we are interested in, then we explore it and love to share what we have learned with others. He also dives into the future of NFT’s, so many different ways to use blockchain technology and some of his favorite alt coins. Once you have listened, check out our chats with Mike Koenigs and Archit Batlaw for more insights into what the future holds for technology and business.

I don’t think there’s any true visionary aspect to it, it’s just that way I’m wired, I tend to pay attention to what’s happening and dabble.” - Joel Comm

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • The secret sauce behind Joel’s successful life
  • The best kept secret in the NFT world
  • Red flags to look out for in the crypto world
  • A new internet network and how you can be a part of it
  • How to find alt coins to invest in
  • So many other options with NFT’s other than artwork

Matt is dropping another solo episode today, and he is going to be talking about some cool conference hacks that will help you with outreach and making connections. Live events are happening again and we just returned from the Traffic & Conversion Summit. He will be sharing some things that we learned over time about how to be the most effective at these conferences and how to get the most out of them. 

He shares a few hacks about how to connect with people and build our influence around the booth. Whether it be with the speakers, attendees, or exhibitors, we really like to network with as many people as possible and do it in a way where you really build a deep connection. Once you’re done, check out chats with Steve Sims that we mentioned and Michael Trainer as well for more insights into making awesome connections to propel your business.

You’ll get their email and once again, you have just opened the door. You’ve just kicked in that reciprocation principle, you’ve just given them a reason to reciprocate and you’ve just given them a reason to remember you as well.” - Matt Wolfe

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Connecting with everyone at the event, and not just attendees
  • Why we, as a sponsor, love connecting with other sponsors!
  • How to connect with folks that you might think are unreachable
  • How to use photos and videos for outreach
  • Exporting your contacts for use in future emails
  • How to get people onto your podcast
  • Using the event app - this makes for easy outreach!

It was a true pleasure and honor to have Dr. Robert Cialdini on the show today, author of one of the most well-known books that many of our guests have referenced. When we got into marketing and entrepreneurship, one of the first books we read was his Influence, which explained the principles of how to execute what we put out into the world. Now with this updated, expanded version, it has been blowing our minds in terms of how practical it is, especially with a brand new principle added. Dr. Cialdini showed us how to get the ethical ‘yes’ and use these persuasion tactics in a very ethical way. 

He also discusses the ethical use of scarcity, with limitations on the number of the product, as well as countdown timers. He also talks about how he did not write his famous book for marketers, he wrote it as a book to learn how to avoid being influenced by others. Some other topics we chat about include the Unity Principle and understanding how you look at things differently when you identify with others in the same group. We also talked about the trust factor, and when you take the power away from the buyer by sharing the bad stuff first to create trust and a bond. We have shared our struggles with our guests and on our Therapy Sessions, and we have found this to be very powerful. Lastly, we had an opportunity to ask some questions from our audience, so listen in if yours was included. After you’ve delved into this episode be sure to check out our show that we mentioned about branding as well as our chat with Neil Patel who also knows a thing or two about growing your brand in an ethical way.

People who are successful have recognized how these principles work at some level. What they often don’t recognize is how to optimize them, and the steps to take that not only activate the principle but maximize its impact in a situation.” - Dr. Robert Cialdini

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • The universal things taught to businesses in order to be successful
  • Why Dr. Cialdini’s book was not meant to be the bible for internet marketers
  • If you have this one particular kind of authority, no one can beat you as a communicator
  • An interesting study about showing your expertise
  • The magic of sharing your weaknesses
  • How to use this one word to get someone to trust you from the very first meeting
  • How to implement scarcity in situations where there really is none
  • What to tell people if you are early in the game

Mandy McEwen from ModGirlMarketing.com, brought the goods today as this episode has a boatload of tactics on how to connect and showcase your brand on LinkedIn. When Mandy told us that only 1% of users are actively posting on that platform, it really opened up our eyes to the possibilities. While LinkedIn may not be the answer for everyone, chances are your audience is on there. To be successful on LinkedIn, you really want to do what everyone else is not doing, i.e. acting like a human being without constantly pitching. 

Mandy talks about some cool tips to dial in your profile to make you stand out as an influencer leader and how there are different features on the mobile app which you can optimize. She also discusses how her own clients have grown without even posting, but just by engaging. You can create that closed-loop system with comments and posts, plus she got tactical in regards to what the LinkedIn algorithm really loves. There are also some tips on how to post documents, and use LinkedIn Navigator to fine-tune your feed. If you want to get additional reach, connect with the people you want and appear as a thought leader, check out all the ideas she shares. Afterward, round out your networking and LinkedIn know-how by checking out our previous episodes with Trevor Turnbull and Joshua B. Lee.

We all have personal brands, whether you want it or not, especially entrepreneurs. Really anyone with a LinkedIn profile has a personal brand so you might as well start owning it.” - Mandy McEwen

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How to really succeed with LinkedIn (and it’s not as hard as you think)
  • The “Don’t List” of what not to do reach LinkedIn outreach
  • How to be seen as the industry expert without having to create a ton of unique content
  • Leverage these hacks to curate your own content easily
  • Which types of posts LinkedIn prefers the most
  • How to use LinkedIn to make you look more like an influencer
  • A super easy hack to make you stand out
  • Yet another business idea that we would use if you create it
  • The results that you can get just from leaving one comment on a post
  • Mandy’s key takeaways from her Traffic & Conversion talk

BJ Fogg, PhD, author of Tiny Habits and TinyHabits.com is on the show today! We have been immersed lately in understanding changes and our own habits, which have led to some self-sabotage at times. BJ talks about the concept of breaking the chain and how it can be detrimental to your progress. If your habit is too big, it can be hard to build up the momentum to continue. Plus, celebrating micro wins can be a huge motivator and they can come with every action that you do.

BJ talked about his mission in spreading that ripple effect that will pass on to others, similar to how we love having fun while recording. He also gave us some real-life examples of creating tiny habits that stuck, such as how he was able to shed weight easily and how he starts his day in the right way to set his mind up for success. Still want more? Go check out our previous conversations with Anthony Trucks and Erin Pheil for more tricks to get you unstuck with some simple questions and quick tactics.

The best system whether it’s weight loss, sleeping better, or being more productive, is matching yourself with behaviors that will take you to that outcome, and these behaviors should be ones that you already want to do.” - BJ Fogg, PhD

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How one way of raising kids helps them to foster a sense of accomplishment and be goal orientated
  • How emotions create the habits
  • Breaking down the Fogg Behavior Model
  • The Maui Habit and celebrating life
  • BJ’s easy method for weight loss
  • Stopping the derailment of habits when your environment changes
  • The simple act of celebrating even the smallest of actions
  • Breaking the habit myths (hint: repetition does not create a habit)

This episode is going to be a great extension of what we have been chatting about in the last few weeks. Also, since we’ve been talking a lot about branding, we are back to branding these episodes as a Therapy Session once again. There’s been some great opportunities that we have been discussing for a while, specifically in the creator economy. We now see our company as a media company rather than just a podcast. We also know there are those listeners who are not necessarily trying to create a media brand, so we wanted to speak to that audience. If you know that the creator economy is getting bigger, there’s never been a better time to figure out how to sell the shovels to that industry without having to be an influencer. 

We talk about the opportunities that we see in the creator economy and some cool stats that compare it to the gig economy. We also drop some insight into how you, as an entrepreneur can use this opportunity. Once you become aware of where the money and attention is flowing, you can position yourself and ride that wave with the creators. It’s a smart approach and we’ll talk about some ways where it’s not you building the media company, but you can be the specialist to provide your services to those on the rise, even positioning yourself for rev deals and partnership. Once you listened, be sure to check out our chats with Gary Henderson and Travis Chappell for tips on how to make connections and network with influencers on a level playing field.

Position yourself properly and strategically - anyone can do that now with the creator/influencer economy.” - Joe Fier

The fact that each one of these things has so many subtasks, is a huge opportunity for digital marketers who want to go and specialize in one of those. Just look at YouTube, and look at one of the tasks you’ve got to do for YouTube. There’s a business there that you can go and replicate for people over and over again.” - Matt Wolfe

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Examples of opportunities that never existed before, which you can specialize in and build a business around
  • Some interesting stats on where the creator economy is headed
  • A look behind the scenes of how we are building our media company
  • Generalists vs. specialists in the agency world, and how the pandemic has switched things up
  • Ideas on how to leverage the creator economy 
  • Steal one of our business ideas and run with it!
  • How to present a no-brainer deal to a creator, and turn it into a rev share deal

On today’s show, we are chatting with Brian Bogert, of BrianBogert.com, who has a wealth of perspectives, and we’ll definitely do a round two, as he opened up so many loops for us. He’s got so many crazy experiences that have happened and shaped who he is. We talk about podcasting and some things that we didn’t even know which we know you will find helpful. Brian also chatted about his perspective in regards to mindset vs. tactics, and our survey that we put out last year, which we now know is not that cut and dry, and actually has a few layers to those results. 

He’s got such great insights into triggers, and how to embrace the pain to avoid suffering, and gave us some real-life examples. The beauty of this conversation is showing how we can be blind to some things until they show up. We did talk a little about imposter syndrome and how we get it sometimes around tangents on the show if we don’t think we can add to the conversation. Brian was able to enlighten us since we now know to just say what we are thinking and awaken the sleeping giant in ourselves, which is very refreshing. There were so many a-ha moments in this conversation, that we will definitely be having Brian back for round two. In the meantime, you may enjoy our chats with Gabby Bernstein and JaMarr Johnson where we chat about how to get into a flow and get yourself on the best track.   

Typically what’s preventing us from being exactly who we want to be, reaching our potential, and having the impact on the world we desire... guess what - it’s us.” - Brian Bogert

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How the recent events over the last year have created a boom for podcasting
  • The magic of valuable sound bites that convert to attention and downloads
  • Redefining the patterns in your life that have been holding you back
  • When we surveyed our audience on Tactics vs. Mindset and how they are not mutually exclusive
  • Recognizing who we are as humans and defining mental toughness
  • The importance of knowing someone’s prime narrative to communicate with them in the best way possible
  • The stuff that no one is talking about in regards to changing the patterns in our own life
  • Check out Matt’s eloquent thought process on reacting to the metaphysical nature of the conversation
  • A new framework on how to view imposter syndrome
  • Recognizing pain and suffering to go forth to fulfilling our destiny
