    Monetise Your Dreams - Interview with Keynote Speaker Hang Black

    Monetise Your Dreams - Interview with Keynote Speaker Hang Black

    Global keynote speaker and passionate advocate for women in business; Hang Black joins Fredrik to discuss all things business, marketing and consumers. Discover how important it is to be equipped to sell value, the difference in millennial marketing and why investing in yourself means understanding the steps you need to take to reach your own definition of happiness.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    Not everyone who is selling, is selling things that are profitable. It is so important to have enablement because you do not want sellers to go in front of customers and have to drop their price. This could mean that now you are below cost in margin. You need to be equipped on how to sell value.

     
    67% of marketing material is never even opened by a seller. This has been true for the last 30 years. With enablement you need to work out how to curate the right content and let your SME’s know which content sticks and which does not. You need to also find the processes that will keep the selling motion consistent and relevant. Make sure to modernise how to talk to your customers and reach them where they are.

     
    44% of millennials do not want to meet their seller even one time. They want to have a contactless experience, this does not necessarily mean that they do not interact with them, it just means that they don’t contact them. One of the things you can do is to make sure when you interact with your customers you interact with them socially first. Engage with them in what they're interested in. 47% of the business decision is already made before the first phone call has been taken.

     
    Sales is the front line to the customer, they are the closest conversation. You don’t know what is right for the customer without talking to them and collaborating with them.

     
    Do not be afraid to try different things in your career and move around a little bit early on. You should never be afraid to take judicious risk. Careers are not necessarily linear but what you really have to learn is what your strengths are and what your values are. Learn how those two things align so that you can monetise them. Following your passions is a great saying but you have got to eat too!

     
    Investing in yourself means giving grace to yourself. Take care of yourself before and understand what your leavers of happiness are, not other peoples definition of happiness for you, whether that be societal, cultural or familial. Understand what happiness looks like for you and invest in how to get to your definition of happiness and success.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “What do we need to do to make it easier for the customer to buy?”

    “How do we meet them how they want to be met?”

    “It is important to have a goal of monetising your dreams.”

    Identity, Being Unique and Investing in Yourself - Interview With Yasmina Fadli

    Identity, Being Unique and Investing in Yourself - Interview With Yasmina Fadli

    Fredrik and Charlie are joined today by motivational speaker and successful businesswoman Yasmina Fadli. Yasmina shares her personal story and describes how she went from strength to strength throughout the years. Together they discuss how to identify your core identity, how doing things differently will set you apart and how investing in yourself will allow you texpand you and your business.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    No teenager should be left behind. They should understand that no matter what their circumstances are, they can build a life that may not seem achievable to them today. There are many possibilities and opportunities out there. Who they are to the core, is what the world is waiting for.

     
    When you are a teenager in a vulnerable situation such as coming from a poor home where there are not a lot of opportunities around you, you need to try to connect with your core identity. Your core identity is not what society thinks of you. We all have a big potential in life and the world is waiting for that potential.

     
    Do things differently which will set you apart. That is how you can identify who you need to become to ensure that your customers are served, you bring them value that they deserve and you can create long term relationships with your clients.

     
    Many people consider sales to be ‘sleazy’, however if you serve from your heart and what to get your customer to achieve the results they are looking for then that is when you can become successful in sales.

     
    Your business or your life will only expand in the ration that you are willing to invest in yourself. If you are not investing in yourself or growing your business and your life will all continue to stay the same. The more you invest in yourself the more your business and life will expand. At the end of your life, if you are learning, growing and staying focused on your vision then you are going to see that the end result will be higher than where you started.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I am more than the label they put on me.”

    “Those are two main drivers in what I am working for.”

    “I did things differently that set me apart.”

    “If I didn't invest in myself I would never have made it this far.”

     

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    As a result of working with the Corporate Game Changers, organizations grow their revenue by at least 25%, expand their customer portfolio and develop new business pipelines. Yasmina combines her passion for customer excellence, curiosity in people and learning about organization's challenges and goals, to go outside of her own comfort zone and guide companies outside of theirs. That is where the change and the magic happens.

    Award Winning Business Coach Andrew Priestley Interview

    Award Winning Business Coach Andrew Priestley Interview

    Award winning business leadership coach, international speaker and one of the UK’s top 100 entrepreneur mentors Andrew Priestly joins Fredrik, Ivan and Charlie today to talk all things business. Together they discuss how important it is for entrepreneurs to know their own values, the mindset of an entrepreneur and how to invest in yourself means you need to first believe in yourself.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The best entrepreneurs are really clear on their values and their overall intentions. What is it you’re trying to do? Whilst making money is appealing in business, it is not the sole reason you should be an entrepreneur, think about what your overall goal is.

     
    Most businesses work on this idea of ‘money’ and ‘volume’. So if you have a really low cost item, then you have to drive the volume up, you always want to make a profit. Your job is to market and drive traffic as you cannot offer something at a low price at a low volume.

     
    The mindset of an entrepreneur is knowing that you can create massive value for people because you know who your market is, what they want and the problems they are trying to solve.

     
    Direction and determination are two variables that drive entrepreneurs. You need to know where you are going and how you want to get there. You might know where you want to go but if you lack the direction, you won’t get there. You might have determination, but you don’t know where you’re going.

     
    To get anywhere in life you have to invest but you have to understand what investing actually means. To invest means to deep dive, reflect and take time to think things through. You should also invest emotionally in yourself, invest in your dreams and desires and always believe in your ability to achieve them, that in itself is investment. A lot of people invest outwardly but they do not work on themselves internally.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “You will get less people, but they will start paying more money.”

    “If you cannot get $97 worth of value out of a two hour seminar then you need to check for the pulse.”

    “As soon as you start to look ripped your ego goes through the roof.”

    “You learn a lot just by doing stuff.”

    Do You Love to Win or Hate to Lose? Interview with former World Boxing Champion Billy Shwaer

    Do You Love to Win or Hate to Lose? Interview with former World Boxing Champion Billy Shwaer

    Listen in to today’s podcast as Fredrik and Ivan are joined by former world boxing champion, personal performance coach and motivational speaker Billy Shwaer. With over 23 years of boxing experience, it is safe to say that Billy knows what he is talking about, together they discuss the mindset of a professional fighter, how the true test of your character is somebody who can show up when they do not feel like it, and why investment in your personal development should never stop.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    There are two fighting mindsets. The first is that you love to win and this encourages your need to be successful in the sport. The second mindset is that you truly hate to lose, this hatred spurs fighters on to become the best at their sport as they cannot stand the thought of losing. There is no right or wrong mindset, people have become champions with both mindsets.

     
    It takes courage to step into the fighting ring and try yourself out. It is admirable of anybody who finds the courage to have a go and step into the ring. You will find yourself having to overcome that fear all the time.

     
    Your true test of character has to show up even in the face of not feeling like it. If you don’t feel like going to training and you would rather have a day off, you have to go beyond yourself and find something within you that carries you forward even in the toughest of times. There are no hiding places in fighting, you have to summon something up from within in yourself. It is a huge test of your strength and willingness in the face of suffering pain and defeat to continue and fight for victory.

     
    The biggest investment that you can make is the investment in yourself. Investing in yourself means investing your own time, effort and money into your personal development. You could have spent thousands of pounds investing in training programmes, courses or personal hobbies to develop yourself, but you should never stop investing in yourself.

     

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I had to find a way to prove, cover-up and survive being weak, that was why I became a boxer”

    “It was tough getting punched in the face.”

    “It is euphoric and amazing.”

    “I want to be free, I don’t want to be tied down.”

    Interview with International Yoga Expert Tarin Calmeyer

    Interview with International Yoga Expert Tarin Calmeyer

    In today's podcast, Fredrik is joined by international Yoga expert, wellness coach and entrepreneur, Train Calmeyer. Together they discuss how the pandemic has allowed for entrepreneurs to reflect upon their existing business model and how they can move with the times and the qualities behind a good leader. Train also shares some of her top tips to stretching and looking after yourself whilst working from home.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The pandemic has required people to take a step back and reflect on how you can move your business and what that has to offer to an online platform. Use your current network of facilitators that you have gained over your experience within your niche industry and keep building upon that database to allow you to grow your company to new levels.

     
    The engagement rate for on demand and pre-recorded content is quite low because it is completely dependent on the persons discipline to watch the content themselves. Anybody can go onto YouTube and watch a video if they have the will to do it. If you provide a live service whereby there is a person on the other end of the call to engage with and who you can ensure are listening to things.

     
    When you have been sitting too much at a computer, one exercise that is highly recommended is to go and stretch against a wall. You can put your hands higher than your head, walk your feet back away from the wall and let your body sag against the wall, stretching out your back. This will help you to open up your chest. Anything to help opening up the chest and shoulders when you have been sitting at a computer too much is going to be a good thing.

     
    A leader has to be focused on what their team is doing and has to be the example for their team. A real leader is always prepared for themselves and their team.

     
    A very helpful thing to do, is to take a very deep breath. Repeat this in a sequence inhaling on a count of four, exhaling for a count of four. You will notice that your state, the way that you are breathing, and the way you are anticipating the breathing is going to calm you down.

     
    Linked in has changed for the better post pandemic. A lot of people are sharing the realness of the working experience and it has gotten to be a more genuine and authentic social media platform. Twitter is another platform where entrepreneurs are able to share their real experiences in the industry. It also allows people to find a way to connect, collaborate and share information and ideas.

    BEST MOMENTS

    “I also definitely see that there is a disconnect in the online space.”

    “This whole part of your body that is usually quite compressed and working, gets opened up.”

    “I really love LinkedIn.”

    “ a leader has to be focused on what their team is doing.”

    Bank on You with Sarry Ibrahim

    Bank on You with Sarry Ibrahim

    In today’s episode Fredrik is joined by financial consultant, health and life agent and podcaster Sarry Ibrahim. Together they discuss Sarry’s unique approach to investment, an approach described as ‘self-banking’. Learn today how to leverage whole life insurance policies to allow you to become your own bank, how to ‘Ten-X your life and why you don’t have to have lots of money to start investing.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Nowadays a bank is just a middle man between people who have money and people who need money. They charge people fees on both sides and some banks do not have any money at all, they just leverage from one hand to the next hand and use other people's money in between.

     
    Many people are able to become their own banks and have ‘self-banking’ principles. This does not mean you have to become a registered, chartered bank but having the infinite banking concept. It is the utilisation of dividend paying life insurance.

     
    Whole life insurance has two parts if it is structured the correct way. It has cash value, and life insurance which is almost like a savings account inside the life insurance policy. If you build up your policy you can eventually start to earn interest and dividends every year, which compounds and the cash value grows. The banking part comes in by giving you access to the money. You can borrow against it without interrupting the growth.

     
    Anybody can adopt this principle. It is about having the ability to understand what to do with the money from the moment you earn it until the moment you spend it. Before you spend the money you can have it sit in the whole life policy, borrow against it and then use that over and over again so that you can become your own source of financing whilst still growing cash reserves.

     
    The ten X rule is valuable to investors. If you can take everything that you are doing, put it in brackets and multiply it by ten, then you will multiply every one of those things by ten. This theory works for everything from investment, to how many podcast shows you can get onto. If you can do that formula once, what is stopping you from doing it again?

     
    Many people believe that they cannot do any money investing unless they have a lot of money. This is not true, there is a lot of leverage out there. The word ‘leverage’ to entrepreneurs is fascinating. It is especially fascinating what you can do, if you leverage other people's money.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “You can still apply certain benefits even if you’re not in the US”

    “You don’t have to be in the banking industry, you don’t have to have millions of dollars, you can do this with any amount of money it is about having the ability.”

     

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Sarry Ibrahim’s business is to help high net worth individuals, real estate investors, business owners and retirees grow and protect their wealth predictably and safely. As a Financial Consultant, Health and Life Agent, Sarry has cultivated a reputation for putting his clients first, no matter what. He prides himself on attending all client meetings without expectations or preconceived ideas to ensure that he is solving his client’s problems. That’s the value Sarry offers.
