Here is what you will hear in this episode
[00:49] What does it mean to be bulletproof businessman? They discuss about two things. Number one is an input to mindset. There’s a certain way of thinking that allows a person to become resilient and courageous in the face of fear, chaos, certainty and confusion. Secondary, is an input in skillset. This comes down to the way we think about things, the way we do things and the way that you do things are going to be.
[09:14] James says that you can never get so successful if you stop needing the perspective of people who have been there before or those who have done that before. He also adds a quote by Isaac Newton which says, “I’ve only seen as far as I have because I’ve stood on the shoulders of giants.”
[13:52] A lot of entrepreneurs and business owners do not put in the strategic thinking time into their businesses and their results show that. Everything works better when it’s focused and pointed in a specific direction.
[17:00] They discuss about how you can create space for yourself to as strategic as possible. You have to set some time aside at some point during the week to actually think strategically about your business. Think about what you want; where you want to go; and what are the big problems that are getting in your way? You should not make thinking time about their business negotiable.
[24:14] If your mindset and your relationship to money isn’t good, then you’re kind of walking around with one leg. You can move to get to where you want to go by hopping. The same holds true if you are solid on your marketing and metrics but you are not thinking strategically, then your business is at risk.
[25:23] You will be considered to be bulletproof only when you can stand on both legs; when you have skill sets dialed in; when you understand the marketing tactics and strategies; and when you have mind set and my relationships money dialed in.
[27:40] Garrrett says it is important to review yourself. It’s important to spend some time looking at what was accomplished, to celebrate what was accomplished and of course to correct what may not have worked so well. You must be super locked in and focused to strategic planning of your life because without it, it’s impossible for you to accomplish what you want to accomplish.
[32:25] James adds that you have to give your mind a target to focus on because. If you don’t, your mind still has a target to focus on and it is going to take you to that one accidentally. And you don’t want that. And when you have a result that you want to achieve, you must be committed to doing things that it takes to get that result.
[39:47] Strategic Seduction. James says that people have to feel comfortable with you before they’re going to do business with you. Gone are the days where you can just sit there, tell your target customers a bunch of stuff and expect them to buy from you. You must be real with your marketing or advertising and look at how that happens in real life. You need to employ strategic seduction.
[44:40] Garrett says that the way the way you seduce my wife and the way you seduce your prospects there are literally is no difference. The fundamental mechanics of seduction are the same across the board including business.
[46: 30] James discusses the three components to marketing, selling and advertising and the importance of all these three components. If any one of those three is missing, then your marketing machine that you’re trying to create for your business is not really going to work for you.
