What to Do When Your Business Goes from Highly Profitable to ZERO Overnight? | Stephen Christopher | Part 2 | Episode #43

Stephen Christopher is the founder of Seequs Digital Marketing, a web marketing firm designed to help business owners achieve results they never thought possible.  Before starting Seequs, Stephen started and ran several other award winning businesses.  One of which was a mortgage company from 2004 – 2008.  With the crash of the mortgage industry in 2008, he learned what its like to go from profitable to over $100,000 in debt overnight.  From this failure he learned more about business than any school or program could ever teach.  Since then he has become an avid student of personal and business development and his number one focus is helping businesses thrive. The primary platform Stephen uses to add extreme value to businesses is the online strategy and service that his agency, Seequs, provides.

 

Interesting facts:

  • I started my first business when I was 14 – a mobile car detailing business, but since I wasn’t old enough to drive, I had to convince people to drive their cars to my house
  • I used to hate spicy food, now I cant find hot enough food at restaurants
  • When I was a kid, my favorite presents to get were power tools
  • I used to take 3-4 remote control cars and other broken power tools and make them into new things – ex… I built a remote control boat out of 3 remote control cars, I built an automatic door opener for my bedroom out of an old power drill motor and a remote control car controler

  Projects:

  • Main focus right now is massively scaling the digital marketing company over the next 3 years
  • Im also growing my podcast – business revolution so that I can use the knowledge that I learned over the last 15 years to help other business owners shortcut and learn from my mistakes and wins

Q&A – How Do You Determine What to Say Yes to? | Episode #42

We answer your questions – Determining what to say yes to will greatly affect the quality of your life.  Learn to say NO!
 
 
Episode_42_QA_June_19_2016
Thor:    The question of the day is…
FS:    This question of the day comes in from Diane from Ann Arbor, and Diane writes she’s heard you talk about taking your commitments very seriously and only saying yes to things once you’ve given it some real thought. She’s having trouble deciding how to know what to say yes to, what to say no to, and just in general how to go about the decision making process.
Thor:    Great question. This comes up a lot with my clients, and I’ll tell you this. What a lot of people do is they follow the crowd or what other people are doing. A lot of times, that’s not the action you want to take or the direction that you want to take.
    Here’s how I do it and here’s how most peak performers do it. First is we have an inner standard – an inner compass. We have a guideline in which we make decisions. I’ll give you a great example. After my divorce, I found myself single and I found the process of who I wanted to date and who I didn’t want to date kind of confusing. I think a lot of people enter into that area and go, “Okay, what does he or she look like? I want chemistry.” I kept hearing that word chemistry.
 I said, “I want to get some idea of – how do I break that down so I’m not going through kind of a trial and error.” I said, “What’s important to me in a person?” I came up with six I’s. The first one is Identity. The second one is Interest. Third one, Eye Candy (I know it’s an E, but eye candy) – and these are in no particular order: Intimacy, Intellect, and the last one is Invisible – just kind of that gut feeling.
So very quickly, as soon as I came up with this, I could very quickly go through, “Okay, is this someone I could see myself with long term? Are they intelligent enough? What are their interests? She has to have her interests and I have to my interests, but at some point, we have to have shared interests of course. As soon as I put that together, it made the process very easy, because I go out on a date or two and I’m like, “You know what? Our interests really aren’t aligned here. What her identity is showing up – and again, that one takes a little bit longer – is not the type of individual that’s going to be a good fit for me long term.
So without that, it was kind of a trial and error and quite frankly, what do most guys lean towards if they don’t have any guidelines?
FS:    The eye candy.
Thor:    Exactly.
FS:    Did you feel pressured to go that way initially?
Thor:    Well, I didn’t have any other guideline or anything else to go by, you know?
FS:    Yeah, so you talked to yourself. You consulted with yourself.
Thor:    I stepped back and I said, “There’s got to be a better way of doing this.”
FS:    You’ve talked about that before about having an inner dialogue that pushes you in your own direction, because that’s what peak performers do. They force their own path.
Thor:    Absolutely. This way, we can make decisions quickly. You know, you don’t want to spend 50 dates trying to figure out if this is a good fit for you.
FS:    Right.
Thor:    And again, it wasn’t like, you know, black and white, check the box or something. But it gave me the guidelines and very quickly allowed me to move through that process. This needs to be a written process – and again, I’m not just talking about dating here.
You’ve got to have a set of standards of what you’re willing to do, what you’re not willing to do, where you’re going. You’ve got to be focused on whether this action is going to move you closer to your goals or further away from your goals – The Ultimate Success Map – that’s what I use all the time. I go through that system: what do I want? What do I need? What’s an effective plan to get there? It’s got to be quantifiable, which is another aspect of it.
How do I say yes and no to things? Is it moving me closer to my goals and do I have these inner dialogues that I have standards for, and this is the way that I proceed in life.
FS:    And really you could make like a 6 I’s. Your 6 I’s were specific to relationships, but you could make a 6 I’s for anything.
Thor:    You should! Absolutely.
FS:    What business to purchase.
Thor:    Yes.
FS:    What weight loss program to choose.
Thor:    Yeah, absolutely! Look, there’s many paths to success, okay? This is just not one path. But you’ve got to make sure that this path is going to get you to where you want to go. Too often, people spend too much time doing things that aren’t moving them in the right direction. The reason they don’t know that in many cases is because they have no inner standards.
FS:    No inner set of guidelines and they commit too early. They commit before they’ve decided if they even can do that thing.
Thor:    Absolutely.
FS:    Yeah. Great, thank you so much.
Thor:    All right. Question of the Day: Where in your life are you missing the standards – the guidelines? Call to Action: Figure out what those standards, those guidelines, that inner map. Quantify it, write that down, and use that in the decision making process.

Turn FEAR Into Face Everything And Rise | Dave Albin | Part 2 | Episode #38

What can you learn by walking on hot coals?

Dave Albin was born in Hollywood and raised in Long Beach, California. Today he lives in the Western Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina just off the Blue Ridge Parkway not far from Boone, NC. He lives with his son David Jr and his daughter who lives close by. He refers to himself as a surfer boy gone mountain man.

RE: Master Firewalk Instructor & Facilitation Expert

My career with firewalking began in 1995 when I attended my first Tony Robbins seminar. After firewalking for the first time I was so blown away how anyone could walk across hot coals that were in excess of 1000 degrees I went on to become a volunteer crewmember with the Anthony Robbins Companies later that year so he could learn the secretes of firewalking.   

He excelled so quickly that he was offered the Assistant Fire-Captains position in 1997. He went from a volunteer to a paid Sub-Contractor. Dave worked directly with the Fire-Captain at that time, a man named Hal Taylor. Hal had a Safety Engineering Degree from Texas A&M. Hal was a master at Risk Management and Safety and taught me a great deal. Dave also joined the Security Detail and became a major player on that Team. 6 years later in 2003 Tony offered Dave the Captain’s position where he was responsible for all of his global firewalks. Dave held that position as Fire-Captain until his retirement with the Anthony Robbins Companies in March of 2014.

Listen to what Tony Robbins said about Dave’s retirement.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUrf-1_psLc)

Dave was hired by Peak Potientals and the T Harv Eker Companies in 2010 to facilitate their firewalks.

He also worked with the late Wayne Dyer, Michael Beckwith, Joe Vitale, Richard Bandler and many others.
