    How Ed Vincent Built his Business through Determination

    How Ed Vincent Built his Business through Determination

    In entrepreneurship, determination always goes a long way. According to Ed, his determination has played a massive role in making him the successful businessperson he is today.
    His entrepreneurial spirit kicked in when he was 13. He has failed in a couple of businesses, but today he is doing great at the Festival Pass; a platform that provides frictionless access to live events and uses the points system for its members to gain access to events. (Their model is like Amazon Prime's, where you pay a certain amount of membership fees and enjoy fast deliveries with no transport costs.)
    More About Ed’s Platform.
    Festival Pass believes you deserve transparency.
    They will never add fees at the end of any of your purchase. The price you see is the price you pay; and including their no added fees policy, members pay up to 30% less than you will pay elsewhere. You also have an Amazon prime membership to get free shipping and other unique perks.
    They help you discover events you love and give you access to thousands of events with a unique credit system. As a member, you can also book your hotel for significant discounts using your member credits.
    Who is Ed Vincent?
    He has been an entrepreneur for over 25 years, and has had multiple companies along the way. He’s currently super passionate about working on festival Pass, and has  also successfully built and exited other businesses.
    Ed's inner superpower
    Ed believes his inner superpower is determination. It has seen him through difficult business times. Determination gave him the courage to build other businesses even after failing, especially in the early days of the internet.

    Understanding Darrell Evans’ Entrepreneurship Journey

    Understanding Darrell Evans’ Entrepreneurship Journey

    According to Darrell Evans, entrepreneurship is the ability to adjust on the fly. His entrepreneurship journey is filled with different situations that require him to adjust on the go. For instance, when Covid hit, their company lost some clients. Other companies were laying off their staff, but that was not an option for Darrell and the company. They had to find a way of keeping their staff, and they did.
    In this episode, Darrell Evans will share his entrepreneurship journey and give us some nuggets of wisdom.
    Who is Darrelle Evans?
    Darrell Evans is a serial entrepreneur, investor, and Co-founder of Yokel Local Internet Marketing (Digital Marketing Agency). He and his team have helped businesses generate over $300M in revenue online. He’s personally started and operated six businesses since the age of 20.
    How mindset has influenced Darrell’s mindset journey
    Darrell prefers to call it a ‘mind-shift’ over mindset. He believes having a mind shift has contributed 100% to his success as an entrepreneur. His mind-shift steps include: 
    Making peace with the facts as we see them today
    Making a new decision based on the facts
    Coming up with a plan that will help you lead to the successful outcome of your decision
    Making the daily commitment to action on the plan daily
    Darrell’s inner superpower
    Darrell believes his inner superpower is empathy. He has an uncanny ability to try to understand the room, environment, person, background, and possibly their thinking.

    “Entrepreneurship is very much about your ability to adjust on the fly.”
    “Unfortunately, people don’t realize that your emotional side of you is what makes this body move and also what really makes things happen.”
    “When you set a goal, you have to set a goal big enough that it can drive you to become somebody different.”

    How Marcus Chan Took the Least Traveled Road in Sales

    Did you know that you can make money from selling courses online? 
    Meet Marcus Chan, who is making good money from courses online. The first sale Marcus made online was for an ebook, and he made $695. This motivated him to create his course, making over $2000 overnight. 
    Marcus specialises in training b2b sales and chooses to work with individuals over companies. He believes that individuals are bound to give better results than companies because there is commitment.
    In this episode, Marcus will share his entrepreneurship journey with us, alongside excellent tips that we can all borrow.
    Does Marcus' course focus more on strategies over mindset?
    According to Marcus, his course includes strategy and mindset in equal measure. He believes you cannot separate the two since they are all equally essential.
    How to better your listening
    Marcus urges us to learn some magic words that make people open up about their issues and what they are trying to achieve. He says we should learn to use words like, "please tell me more, elaborate, e.t.c."
    Marcus' inner superpower
    Marcus believes his inner superpower is his ability to remain disciplined in everything he does. He flashes back to when he was a kid and had to practice his speech and learn Chinese. He believes we can achieve anything if we are consistent and disciplined.

    "If you want a proper discovery, call first, before you get to presenting or pitching, you can eliminate many of the objections on the front end."
    "The prospect will always tell you exactly what's most important to them. So, you can actually show them how you can help."
    "The more you trust the doctor, the more you trust their opinion."
    "Doing it millions of times will make you better at doing it."
    "If you don't have a good night's sleep, you're not going to feel good the next day."
    "Doing is one of the weaknesses of our society."

    How to make your storytelling better
    According to Christoph, breaking the rules sometimes, when necessary, is important. Find a way of telling your story, but don’t tell the story the same way all the time. He argues that people are at different funnel levels, and you cannot tell them all the same story. You’ll be neglecting some.

    How to Deliver Powerful Presentations with Patricia Fripp

    How to Deliver Powerful Presentations with Patricia Fripp

    Your conversations and presentations are critical to achieving the desired results, especially in sales. Your choice of words and how you present them makes all the difference. I have the honor of hosting the amazing Patricia Fripp in this episode.
    She is a presentation skills expert, award-winning speaker, & speech coach. Today, she will teach us how we can improve our presentation and communication skills to help us achieve our goals.
    Grab your notebook and pen. You’ll need to take notes.
    Why is it essential to pause during a presentation/ speech?
    It gives the audience a chance to understand. When people know what they are talking about, they tend to speak too fast, and the audience may fail to know what they are talking about.
    You pause to think about what comes next when having an unscripted conversation.
    Magical you to help you present better
    You need to rehearse your speech to the extent you are comfortable with or without the presentation slides. Also, it would be best if you were prepared in case you are required to have a flip.
    Patricia’s inner superpower
    Patricia believes her inner superpower is the ability to listen to a speech/presentation and immediately pick how she can improve it.

    [24:48] Dealing with accents
    [29:13] Is it okay to be dressed up for a presentation and be authentic?
    [33:45] Patricia’s inner superpower
    Quotes:
    “It’s so much easier to get to know people if you can see them.”
    “Everybody is more interested in themselves than they are in ‘us’.”
    “Style is being yourself on purpose.”- Raquel Welch
    “It’s great to have an accent because it makes you an object of interest. The only concern we have is you have to be understandable.”
    “We learn by our experiences. If we’re really smart, not only do we learn by our experiences ,we learn by other people’s experiences.”
    “Confidence comes from knowing your lines.”
    “Rehearsal is the work. Performance is the relaxation” - Michael Caine
