What Top Gun Can Teach Us About Marketing In this episode, Joel, and Andy explain what Top Gun can teach us about marketing. It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but once you have listened to the episode you will see that a film about an elite training centre for US Navy pilots is indeed a font of knowledge for any business owner.

KEY TAKEAWAYS


You are never going to succeed on your own. You can only do so much.
It is no good putting all of your eggs into one marketing basket.
Don&acute;t go too broad. Focus in on the person that will actually buy from you.
Be careful that your default mindset is not negative.
Get comfortable with the idea that some things are going to be hard.
Sometimes going back to things that worked in the past is a good idea.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;With marketing, you cannot rely on one component alone. &acute;
&lsquo;You need to be laser-targeted.&rsquo;

Leaning Into It With Liam Walsh In this episode, Joel speaks to one of his coaches, Liam Walsh. He helps fitness coaches to focus on what they need to do to maximise their income. Enabling them to earn well without having to burn themselves out.

Liam explains what setting up two businesses taught him and how he applied those lessons to what he is doing now. He explains why you must not be afraid to speak up if something does not feel right, ask questions and be willing to push through tough times. As well as how having a plan and executing it consistently enabled him to go from zero clients to earning 13.5K a month, in under 5 months.

KEY TAKEAWAYS


Everyone tends to jump from one thing to another, wasting energy by not following through.
Be clear about what you want from your business. How it will benefit you and your family.
When you start a business with someone be clear about what each of you wants from it and set boundaries.
If you are in business and you think something is not right, speak up sooner rather than later. When you don&acute;t everyone wastes lots of time and energy.
Never be afraid to reinvest in yourself to get time back by outsourcing everything that you can.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;Having a plan laid out&hellip;stops them going off on too many tangents and ultimately procrastinating. &acute;
&lsquo;I hate losing. But it&acute;s OK to lose provided you learn from it.&rsquo;
&lsquo;You&acute;ve gotta lean into your discomfort, big-time.&rsquo;
&lsquo;Everything in your business can be passed on (outsourced).&rsquo;

Mindset: Everything's Toxic In this episode, Joel, and Andy discuss why, right now, everyone is referring to virtually anything that does not fit in with their worldview and narrative as being toxic. They talk about how this over-sensitivity has come about, and the damage it can do to you and others.
They then share ways to stop yourself from getting sucked into looking at everything in that jaded way. Explaining how to keep things in balance. To see the world as it really is, yet still be ready to handle genuinely toxic situations and people, in a healthy way.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

The word toxic means something that is extremely harmful or unpleasant, in a pervasive or insidious way. That is not how the word is being used now.
When someone disagrees with us, their views are not automatically toxic.
Thinking everything is toxic, closes your mind. Not being ready to listen to others is bad for business.
When you think everything is toxic you become hyper-sensitive and scared to put your head above the parapet e.g., use social media to grow your business.
You can't always avoid exposing yourself to toxicity, especially in business.
Be ready to handle toxic situations you can't avoid in a healthy way.
Choose when and how you put your head above the parapet.
Take responsibility, if someone is upsetting you, challenge them or stay away from them.
If life feels like a grind, seek out the people that lift you up.
Look after yourself physically and mentally. It helps to make you more resilient.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;My sensitivity to the situation was hindering me.&rsquo;
&lsquo;If you are feeling like everything is toxic. No. 1 have a look at what you are surrounding yourself with.&rsquo;
&lsquo;For business owners, it is not always possible to avoid what is deemed toxicity.&rsquo;

Marketing: Impactful Images to Power Your Business With Martin Irvine In this episode, Joel sits down with Martin Irvine the owner and director of Martin Irvine Productions. They discuss the role images play in marketing and how to create ones that have an impact. Images that get noticed, are memorable and convert. Something Martin has been doing for the coaches and fitness leaders that make up the majority of his clients.
They discuss how businesses can still thrive in recession conditions by marketing hard, understanding their customers and being authentic. As well as talking about what it takes to be successful without becoming overwhelmed by your work life.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Some of the most successful businesses in the world have developed out of a recession.
Businesses that scaled during CoVid filled the void and are still thriving.
First impressions are important. Today, that means getting your social media right.
Knowing your market is essential. It&rsquo;s not enough to replicate what others are doing.
The content you put out must be authentic, including your images.
When you get your content and images right you get better quality leads.
Outsourcing your image creation and marketing frees you up to generate far more income.
Do you wash your own car? Or do you pay someone to do it? It makes sense to take the same approach with your business.
Bring people who are better than you into your business.
Every successful person has people behind the scenes helping them.
Test campaigns out long enough to know whether they work. People give up far too quickly.
People know the difference between professional images and amateur ones, you can use that to your advantage.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;When the market is down, those that market hardest position themselves as the first choice for when the market comes back. &acute;
&lsquo;Be authentic.&rsquo;
&lsquo;I will take more from a challenge than I will allow a challenge to take from me.&rsquo;

Mindset: The Powerfulness of The Pause and Mindfulness Training For Leaders With Catherine Bell In this episode, Joel, and Andy speak to Catherine Bell who is a bestselling author, and a teacher at one of the world&rsquo;s top business schools, Queen&acute;s University. She specialises in creating healthy corporate cultures. Catherine shares some of the key lessons she has learned, after decades of helping companies of all sizes and many types to transform their culture.

During the episode, she takes Joel and the listeners through an exercise that improves awareness and positivity. Catherine also touches on the role enneagram testing can play in helping leaders to understand themselves better and the impact they are having on the culture of their businesses.

KEY TAKEAWAYS


Take time out every single day to practice mindfulness and root yourself in calmness.
The most self-aware leaders are the most powerful.
Our company cultures are built on our relationships with others. How you behave has a huge impact.
Mindfulness is immensely powerful for leaders.
The vast majority of us are disengaged. We are sleepwalking through our days.
Pause every day to think about your focus and vision.
Many businesses focus on their bottom line rather than on solving their business problems while benefiting their customers and others.
Understand who you have to be to get to where you want to go.
Take notice of what everyone on your team is doing and comment regularly on the positive things they are doing.
Doing small positive things regularly throughout the day adds up to high levels of positive change.
If you want to help others, you have to help yourself first.
Leaders can suck the energy out or inject it into a room very quickly.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;The majority of people are disengaged. &acute;
&lsquo;People support what they create.&rsquo;
&lsquo;Greatness is a series of small acts&hellip;.&rsquo;
&lsquo;If we are going to solve the problems that are facing our planet, we have to ask &ndash; how much is enough.&rsquo;

Marketing: Stop Rolling the Dice on Your Business, Own the Table! In this podcast, Joel sits down to talk with Joe DeMaria, CLO at Academy Builders Inc, and founder of Teach to Scale. He explains how he went from selling sweets at school (and getting caught doing it) to becoming a serial entrepreneur. One who has also had great success at transforming several languishing businesses.
He explains why so many firms never break through the $1.2 to $2 million mark and what can be done to stop that from happening. Joe also explains, in detail, how to sell more of the products or services that provide you with the highest profit margin and annually add more profitable products to what you have to offer.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Successful entrepreneurs provide a solution for what are usually very common problems.
Too many people build businesses around what we are good at rather than around what customers want and need.
Leveraging time only takes you so far. You cannot progress without strategic intent.
Don&acute;t neglect market research. Use the data within your company to make informed decisions.
Choose the right business method.
Offer structure has a massive impact on cash flow and, therefore, success.
Focus on selling your highest margin activities.
Add a halo tier to your offer. Joe explains why and how.
The foundations of your business are critical.
Any business can scale by adding new product lines, every year.


BEST MOMENTS
&lsquo;A lot of entrepreneurship is about being responsive, not about being creative. &acute;
&lsquo;The problems the best companies in the world solve are the ones that are around us every day.&rsquo;
&lsquo;Market research needs to be a part of everything we touch.&rsquo;
&lsquo;Every business should have product lines, not products.&rsquo;

ABOUT THE GUEST
Joe got his start in the Internet space back in 2011. At the time, he was &mdash; in his own words &mdash; "broke, dumb, and successful at failing in business over and over again."
And then... a shift in mindset would occur.
After discovering and absorbing himself in the world of online marketing, he developed a burning desire to join the Genius Network. Years of study, trial & error, and business development would occur before he finally found himself part of the group and network. But this was only the beginning.

Something "crazy" happened.

After several unsuccessful attempts at developing an online course, a moment of brilliance would help Joe discover a new way to create and teach online courses that actually inspired action in people.
This idea became "Dynamic Ascension Training", an 80/20 teaching system that focuses on breaking down even the most complicated skill sets into simple digestible training programs.
Since its introduction, Joe has become one of the most sought-after course creation consultants on the planet -- having worked to create dozens of Dynamic Ascension Training Programs for high-end entrepreneurs, coaches, and consultants.
TeachToScale is an extension of all that Joe has learned through the years of developing courses, providing training, and working with clients.
