    Chat With Titans - Matt Andrews

    Chat With Titans - Matt Andrews

    Matt Andrews is an investor, philanthropist and entrepreneur who is talking to Nick about collaboration and its importance.

    He has taken the concept of collaboration and scaled it exponentially and talks in-depth with Nick about his journey and why he is energised by collaborating with other people and championing them to do their best in something they truly believe in.

    This is an opportunity to hear great content about what a great collaboration is and why there are always key questions you should ask yourself before beginning any collaboration

    Connecting, nurturing and empowering can bring you the intentional relationships that lead to great collaborations, listen in and find out more

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Putting yourself out there opens you to both the good and the bad but if you are leading and living by your principles they shouldn’t change
    When I collaborate with people and hear about their ideas, I get energy from them and am excited about it
    I’m at my best when I’m helping and championing others to do their best in something they truly believe in
    The ability to pull people in from my business world and connect them with our charity work really solidifies our relationships in a way business never could
    The money and the business come when you put the right collaborators together
    Collaboration can bring another level that you can’t put a price on and can’t put a value on the difference it makes in your life
    Connect, nurture and empower is a framework for building intentional relationships
    You need to be purposeful about who you want to move to the nurturing phase. Creating communities can speed up the nurture process
    Real empowerment is when you have such a candid relationship that you can have the difficult conversations
    With every opportunity, you should first look at whether it’s in alignment with your values and get you closer to your goals
    Always ask yourself - do I value the person and being with them? Does it help people and drive revenue? Is it fun?
    Understanding who you are means that you are able to value and appreciate your relationships more
    You have to be intentional with your days, do stuff you love and hang out with people who empower you and you respect and those you can help

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Collaboration has brought everything good into my life’

    ‘I’m instantly energised by people who are doing great things’

    ‘Pulling from my business communities I’ve built an amazing group of friends who have a heart for sharing’

    15 Minutes To Action - Lessons From Lockdown

    15 Minutes To Action - Lessons From Lockdown

    In this week's '15 Minutes To Action', Nick reflects upon the lockdown period, how it has affected the business landscape - what we can learn from the last 12-18 months, and what we can take forward as business owners and entrepreneurs.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The world has gone through unprecedented change, and we must appreciate what it will mean. The system has been altered forever.
    Being agile really matters. One of the main takeaways from lockdown has been that those who respond and adapt quickly have survived and thrived.
    We have proved that we can work effectively and efficiently without being in a static place of work, and without having to meet people face to face.
    People have always seen home as a refuge - an escape from work. With the rise of remote working, this has been re-evaluated. We need to make sure we strike a balance in this new world.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'There is a certain degree of certainty and confidence coming back'

    'To reinvent is now a critical component of any business'

    'We're seeing entrepreneurs looking at these business trends and coming up with some brilliant business ideas'

    'It's going to be interesting to see how people adjust to those different dimensions'

    How To Make A Living With Your Ideas - with B. Jeffrey Madoff

    How To Make A Living With Your Ideas - with B. Jeffrey Madoff

    This week, Nick talks to B. Jeffrey Madoff, founder of Madoff Productions, who collaborate with ad agencies, public relations firms and directly with clients to produce commercials, branded content and live streaming events, who's here to discuss the ways in which you can turn your ideas into your living, and how he achieved that very thing!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Success is a matter of perspective. Only through experience do we come to realise what really matters, and how we should really define success.
    Successful people often carry a great deal of humility and credit luck as having facilitated their journey. But hard work is the foundation of every great success.
    Pioneers recognise the element of every business that's lacking, and take action. Even elements such as the customer experience, if developed and improved, can create a sea change.
    Those in the creative arts are never taken seriously, in that they are always asked what their back-up plan will be. This is unique to the creative sector.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The biggest value is placed on relationships, and the value and longevity of those relationships'

    'The biggest difference between ignorance and stupidity is that ignorance you can learn and stupidity is forever'

    'I saw all the different ways in which I could collaborate with people'

    'What separated them from others was that there was something different about the way they did things'

    15 Minutes To Action - Unleashing Your Marketing Mechanism

    15 Minutes To Action - Unleashing Your Marketing Mechanism

    It's '15 Minutes To Action' time, and this week, Nick talks about the importance of perspective when it comes to your marketing strategy, and how to activate the marketing mechanism that will serve your customers in the ideal way.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When planning our marketing tactics and strategies, you need to take a wide view of the business itself - to gain a far broader perspective about who you are and where you are.
    The whole reason that your business exists - its purpose for being - is that you're solving a problem for someone. You are taking someone from their current state to their desired state.
    The marketing mechanism is the vehicle by which you take your customer or client from their current state, to the state in which they desire to be.
    The "unspoken mechanism" is when there is nothing unique about your product or service, but no one is talking about it.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'You've got to be able to see the landscape so that you can make better decisions'

    'Your solution between those two dimensions is what's going to make the difference between you being successful or not'

    'The marketing mechanism is what creates the differentiation for your business'

    'What is your special sauce?'

    Chat With Titans - Frank McKinney

    Chat With Titans - Frank McKinney

    This week sees a new edition of 'Chat With Titans', where Nick talks to Frank McKinney, a real estate artist, seven-time international best-selling author, philanthro-capitalist, actor, speaker, and a man who describes himself as a "modern-day renaissance man".

    Frank joins Nick to discuss his formula for success, his incredible humanitarian projects around the world, and how he became one of the world's most successful real-estate investors.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The route to wealth and financial freedom, is more often than not built upon real estate and property investment. It's always worth educating yourself as best you can in this area, so as to maximise your strategical toolbox.
    Sometimes the best way to build your reputation is to sacrifice the bottom line so as to show the world that you care about quality.
    When we build a successful personal brand, people become far more invested in the story as it plays out, and will actively seek out the next chapters.
    Success begins with mind-set. We can't hope to achieve financial freedom if we doubt ourselves. Get the mind right and the money follows.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'I sacrificed bottom line for reputation'

    'Get the mind right and the money will follow'

    'It has to be about success in the business of life'

    'It's about more than scaling up your business. It's about scaling up your life'

    15 Minutes To Action - 4 Ways To Close A Sale

    15 Minutes To Action - 4 Ways To Close A Sale

    In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, Nick talks you through one of the most crucial, but misunderstood parts of the sales process – closing – and the four techniques that'll help you to make sure you’re closing more effectively.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you spend time at the front end of your business – the marketing, trust and branding end – and you do that at scale, you’ll never have any trouble hitting the numbers.
    Sales is the lifeblood of business, but you must look at the entire experience from end-to-end.
    By studying the needs of the customer, we can present the idealised solution to their needs.
    A useful technique is to focus not upon the sale itself, but the benefits of what comes after the sale by supplying options centred around the post-sale process.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘There isn’t a day that goes by where I’m not pitching something or selling something’

    ‘You’re getting people to know, like and trust your business, brand and service’

    ‘They do their homework, which unlocks the ability to present great solutions’

    ‘You’re getting their brain to think logically about what the next step is going to be’

D M. Smith ,

Epic listen.

Just listened to the episode ‘How to close every deal’ with Spencer Lodge. So good, I listened to it twice. It’s not very often I have to stop every 5mins to write notes while I’m out with the dog. Great interview and inspiring guest.

amypitchforth4 ,

Wow!

Just listened to ‘how to avoid entrepreneurial burnout’ and as someone who’s in the midst of just that, it’s given me hope that I don’t have to continue in this cycle. Very motivating, educational and succinct. I feel brighter already and will be listening to this episode again amongst all the others. Thank you so much.

Andy Paxton ,

You must listen to this podcast if you’re an entrepreneur.

Great podcast for your business. I listen to every episode and always take away some valuable thoughts and points.

My only criticism is a slight focus on scaling your business with the intention of selling. This doesn’t relate to my situation but I’m aware that it is likely the ambition of many listeners. Regardless of your situation it’s a must listen if you own a business.
