How to get more money out of every meeting

3 weeks ago 159 views

I realised a while back that I was my own worst enemy. I'd set a price tag for our business and the level we played at. I basically put ourselves in tthe minors when we could have been playing in the majors.

Entrepreneurs do this all the time, they want the work so bad, they sell themselves short. In a previous video I mentioned how I started small, but this could be a hangover of that. Sell yourself for the level of meeting you're in. Don't trade your conversation stock too low!

I recently bought a Leif Board, which is essentially an electric freebord (a freebord is a way to snowboard on the streets).

Just my second time out, but really enjoyed it. Quite pricey, but highly recommended

The power of the 36 month year | FEAT: Howard Mann

Howard Man is a super smart guy, I've mentioned him many times, and his book is a must read:

http://www.howardmann.com/your-business-brickyard.html

Here he talks about why you should think longer than 12-months. His thinking is so important for any business strategist, entrepreneur, or CEO.

You can read his blog post on the topic here:

https://brickyardblog.com/2018/01/08/your-36-month-year/

Here's a prize excerpt:

"So, imagine now that I roll out a new year for you starting on January 1, 2018 and it is 36 months long. You have 36 months to build a business that will finally be what you really want at the end of this new, much longer, year. No arbitrary sprints. Just the right amount of time to build something that will make you proud.

In the early months, you can “plant seeds in new fields” and build up the machine that will be able to produce massive results in months 24 and forward.

A 36 month year allows for patience.
A 36 month year allows everyone in the company to be aligned with your long term goals.
A 36 month year eases the pressure that you deal with every single year. It is not fun for you and you better believe your team hates the Q4 pressure as well.
Whether you want to sell your business, double revenue, transform into new markets or just double your profit then you need to create as long a year as you need to give you the time and space to make the smartest moves to get there.

Let patience be your business virtue."

New day resolution post: http://richmulholland.ghost.io/new-years-revolution/

The other day I found myself in an extremely stressful situation, I decided that stress would get me nowhere, so I then decided not to do it. It was that easy.

Stress is a decision you make and it's one you probably shouldn't waste energy on.

If you put your logo on every slide, I hate you!

It's episode 50! I'd taken it down, but I've put it back up with an explanation (because in spite of the audio, it's an important message, we'll try do better next time ).

People put their logos on every slide, I think it's a really bad idea - in this video I explain why.

While listening to Jordan Harbinger on the Kevin Rose show, I learned and introduction hack that is so elegant and brilliant, I'm kicking myself for not always doing 'em that way. Now I'm sharing the love with you.

We often brainstorm how we reach our goal, however often in business our goals are incremental, reasonable, and achievable. What if they weren't? Would we get different results? In our experience, that's a definite yes!

One of the most common fallacies I hear presentation "professionals" spew up is that you mustn't read your slides. This is dead wrong. Sure, you mustn't have slides with too much to read, but if it's on the slide - use it.

Don’t beat your competitors. Have none!

Competition is hard, but there's an easier way. The narrower your focus, the less competition you have.

Here's some reading for you:

All address this issue in some way.

A few years back at TED I was lucky enough to chat with Jeff Bezos. The lesson he gave me was so simple, yet so often forgotten...
