    How to Create Frameworks That Get Results

    How to Create Frameworks That Get Results

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, talks about how to take your concepts and communicate them in a way that gets action as well as results from the people that you are serving. As visual learners, we learn with pictures and frameworks. They are the key to inspire understanding and results.
    If we don’t get it right, your marketplace will be lost in complexity and confusion, there’s no understanding and what really happens is that there is no progress. When we get it right, the mess becomes simple, your audience sees themselves in there and it gives them path to results. It’s how they take their first step.
    The 3 things that you need to know:
    Geometry is real. There’s basically squares, circles and triangles. Emotions are imbedded. Your audience identifies with the fears, frustrations, aspirations, and dreams. Choreography gives it life. The syntax and process to unpack it will move them. The Framework Formula Here are the 4 common elements that all frameworks will have:
    Geometry: Squares, circles and triangles are pushed together. The shapes have different meanings attached but we must realize that every framework has geometry and it needs to be really thought out. Content: Content needs to be meaningful. They are the points that start to bring things home and allow for that movement. Emotion: Think about what emotions you are trying to bring out. Think about their fears, frustrations, aspirations, dreams and how you will instill certainty in them. Choreography: It’s about the steps that you are going to use to reveal the whole thing. An emotional dance of understanding to bring simplicity to complexity. There are 6 types of frameworks:
    Value framework: Present levels of value so that your market can identify where they are, the challenges that exists and where they want to go. It gets them to have that desire or emotion. What framework: It’s about teaching someone a set of principles. Most of the times they are in the form of matrices. Process framework: With process frameworks, you are sharing the steps and what needs to be done. If framework: It’s evolutionary. It talks about “If we do these things, we will evolve to this level”. Urgency framework: It’s a model that creates a need to do something now. It’s to move them by giving them the consideration of inaction. Genius framework: You combine several frameworks into one. It includes a multitude of things that grasps everything. __________________________

    How to Go from Job to Entrepreneur

    How to Go from Job to Entrepreneur

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, answers a question about whether it is time to quit your job and go from job to entrepreneur. As risk mitigators, entrepreneurs must weigh the risks before moving forward. If you do not get it right, you are living a dual life, there is no joy in earning, and you find yourself in no or low cash flow. If you get it right, you feel like you are in flow, you are monetizing your passion, and you find freedom and cash flow.
    The 3 key principles you should understand:
    Committed vs reckless. There’s a difference between being committed and being reckless. Plan and test. Put strategies in place and get feedback. Set your scale threshold. Not everyone has the same transition point. The Entrepreneur Transition Formula Preparation: It is about your thinking. Clarify what you are passionate about but passion itself isn’t enough. You must create value in other people’s lives with your passion. Also, interview the people you want to serve and know about the things that they are looking for. Evaluation: It is about analyzing. Plan your idea and how the journey looks like. Do micro-launches, test, get feedback and tweak it as needed. Finally, assess everything so you can move forward. Execution: It is about doing. Look at the financial viability and see whether it’s a viable commercial option. Understand who do you need to make it happen and form a team over time. Decide on your scale threshold. It’s the tipping point where you believe that you can make money at it, scale it if you dedicate more time on it, and it will allow you to fulfill your dreams and live your aspirations. Get preparation and evaluation correct and you will find some comfort in the process. When you get evaluation and execution correct, you get clarity. Through evaluation and execution, we are living our calling. Transition is built on all of this.

    How to Get Your Message to Market Match Right

    How to Get Your Message to Market Match Right

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, teaches you how you can get your market to message right by building a bridge between the two.
    If you want to build an audience or a following, you need to be able to spread the right message to the right ears at the right time in the right way. This episode will teach you how you can get your market to message right by building a bridge between the two. If you do not get it right, your message gets lost and no one sees it. Nobody is there for your content and you end up with no sales. But if you get the market and the message right, there is clarity. Once they have it, your message becomes music to their ears and deals end up getting done.
    The 3 principles that you need to know:
    They need to feel understood. You have walked in their shoes or understand what it’s like. They need to see a path. That you can take them from point A to point B. Transformation drives value. Articulate the transformation that they get. The Market/Message Bridge This framework allows you to articulate the value, transformation, messaging, and empathy. It’s about (1) being able to articulate the frustration, (2) giving them hope and (3) speak to their aspirations.
    There are 6 levels or hot buttons to this process:
    Emotion: What are they feeling? Articulate their frustrations, fears, anger, angst, and anxiety at the base level. Existence: It’s their current reality. What is really going on? Appeal to their struggles. Empathy: Understanding them from their position. What did you do when you were in their place? Evidence: They need to see the solution in you. Move them from frustration to hope. Envision: It’s about giving them a foretelling of the future. Say how you figured it out. Evolution: Attach to the desires. What are they feeling now and what new feelings come to light? __________________________

    How to Create a Training that Transforms

    How to Create a Training that Transforms

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, discusses about how you can create a training that builds in transformational results for the people that buy, use, attend and learn from you. We need a killer program for it because if we do not do it right, there is no one that has attention on us, there is no demand and it results in the fact that we can't improve other people's lives. When we get it right, there is an intense focus on us, we are in demand and the users get the results in the process.
    The 3 principles that you should know:
    Insights drive transformation Feelings deepen retention Action steps will lead to results The Killer Program Paradigm This framework will allow you to make an experience and build the feelings necessary to give your audience the action steps which in turn gives them the results in the process.
    Education: They come to us for training and so we educate them. We give them the insights which are not just the data but the interpretation and application of it. Experience: It shouldn’t flow in just one direction. People want to experience it and you have to make sure that they immerse in it so that it creates feelings inside of them. This is how you retain them. Execution: It should be executable. They should be able to apply it. Give them a step-by-step action plan. If we build their feelings and give them the insights, they assimilate and identify with it. When you educate them, and give them the execution plan, you’re giving them the clarity. Finally, when we create the experience and education, passion sparks inside of them.
    Ultimately, when you get everything right, you end up with creating Transformation.

    How to Create a Lead Magnet that Converts

    How to Create a Lead Magnet that Converts

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, shares with us the framework and the tools so that you can build a lead magnet that converts. If you do not get it right, we're going to end up with a bunch of lookie-loos, we are in a situation where there's literally no traffic and we don't even get that first date with our audience. But if we get it right, qualified people will be attracted to our content, they even share it and you end up with courtship which is a trusting and loyal relationship.
    The 3 key principles that you need to know:
    They are looking for something It solves a specific problem It highlights a bigger solution The Lead Magnet Pillars The objective here is to get something that actually attracts and converts. There are 3 keys to it:
    Educate: They got to feel that it’s going to educate them. There should be information that is useful. The easily digestible content that you provide should empower them. Engage: It should not be a data dump but something that can engage them. Ultimately, what we’re looking for is eyeballs. You want them to be attracted to it so you can convert. Inspire: It should inspire them to (1) take action and (2) take them to a higher aspiration. It should build excitement of what is possible in the sense of growth, ease, and certainty. When we create a lead magnet that engages and inspires them, we are able to create loyalty. Trust is gained when we inspire and educate them correctly. Lastly, if we get the engagement and education in place, we are going to build authority. All of this is going to attract and convert.

    How to Build Engagement with Your Market

    How to Build Engagement with Your Market

    In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, about how you can engage your audience or market so that you excel in your presence out there and build a following that is going to champion you. If we don’t get this right we are going to feel deserted, it leads to feeling ignored and there is no growth. But if you get it right, there is a crowd and it is populated, you will enter into conversations and ultimately it becomes a stampede as they want to be a part of the community.
    The 3 principles that you need to know to building engagement with your market:
    Speak to their desires. Understand their dreams and aspirations. Get their commitment to do something. Decision is simply the catalyst. Only a few them are immovable. The Engagement Elevator This framework helps us to understand the following 3 pillars of engagement:
    Heart: It is about incorporating the emotional side. It may be a story, a statement or something that grabs them emotionally first. It’s a ‘why’ statement. Head: It is about engaging their rational thought process. Your communication with them should speak to the logical part of their mind. Hands: It is behavioral. Get them to do something. Get them to make a movement or take an action. It is how you get results. Dealing with the head and hands together, you have given them the logic and the action items. It is how you get your audience to take a Decision.
    If you get the head and heart together, you speak to their logical and emotional side. That is how you incorporate their Aspiration.
    When you incorporate their heart and hands, their decisions are driven more by heart and less by logic. That is how you create a Mission.
    All this leads to generating Engagement with your audience and marketplace.
