    Treating Your Business Like a Private Equity Fund

    One of the keys to building true wealth, and not just income, is to differentiate yourself and your business from everybody else out there.
    On today’s episode, host Roland Frasier talks about the importance of setting yourself apart from the crowd and setting your business up like a private equity fund. As other people come to you for advice, what are the patterns you see? What is your specific set of skills and how can you leverage and optimize that so that you’re not just bringing in more money, you’re building up equity and increasing your wealth exponentially? He gives a ton of examples of cash alternatives you can provide in exchange for equity and shares personal stories of acquiring millions of dollars in this shrewd and brilliant way.


    Listen in for some great tips on differentiating yourself so you can build wealth through equity.
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
    Why Roland takes care of people first, asks for equity later
    Why most companies that are raising money want to give it away
    10+ cash alternatives you can provide in exchange for equity

    Using the Impact-Genius Matrix for Time Management with Ryan Deiss

    Using the Impact-Genius Matrix for Time Management with Ryan Deiss

    The optimal-hours-in-a-work-week debate is neverending. Four hours a week? Four hundred hours a week? Somewhere in between?
    On today’s episode, co-hosts Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss sit down to solve the optimal work week puzzle once and for all. Okay, not really, since the two of them don’t even agree. But that’s not the point. Doing what works best for you is. For Ryan personally, he wants to get more intentional about the work he’s doing, what categories that work fits in, and how many hours he’s spending on each category. He has found that, past a certain point, working more hours results in diminishing returns. Over the past few months, his personal and professional goals have gotten out of alignment, and that’s not acceptable to him, so he’s making some big changes.


    Listen in for helpful tips and actionable steps you can take to make sure your work hours line up with what you value most.


    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
    What Ryan writes in his “work diary” and why
    The 4 categories of work and which ones you want to optimize for
    How to keep meeting-creep from overtaking your calendar
    Why you should limit your hours of flow-state work (even though it’s counterintuitive)

    Getting Your Time Back While Growing Profits

    Getting Your Time Back While Growing Profits

    Have you ever had someone tell you, “I’d love to pick your brain,” and you spend valuable time giving them free advice which they ultimately ignore?
    On today’s episode, host Roland Frasier talks about why he’s done handing out his wisdom for free. It’s not because he’s greedy or snobby. It’s because he’s shrewd and it’s better for the other person in the long run as well. He’s learned from experience that humans rarely follow through—unless they have skin (i.e., money) in the game. He did 42 four-hour consults in 2020 for $25k each. Not a bad deal, but he has no plans to become a consultant. “No matter how high your hourly price,” he says, “it’s still dollars for hours. You’re still a dancing bear.” No, he’s doing it because he wants equity in deals. And he’s been racking up that equity as well.
    Listen in to find out how you can increase your profits without giving up your time.
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
    What’s included in the automated text Roland sends to anyone asking for advice
    Why Roland raised his consult fee from $18k to $25k
    How you can elevate your credibility which leads to more equity deals
    What barbell investing is and why Roland is a fan

    Lessons from Building a Billion Dollar Business | Interview with Jonathan Cronstedt of Kajabi

    Lessons from Building a Billion Dollar Business | Interview with Jonathan Cronstedt of Kajabi

    You start building a business for a very specific purpose, but when you shift into growth mode, you may have to switch psychological gears to get where you want to go.
    On today’s episode, host Roland Frasier interviews his good friend Jonathan Cronstedt, President of https://kajabi.com/ (Kajabi), a business valued at $2 billion. This conversation took place at a recent https://www.warroommastermind.com/ (War Room Mastermind), which members pay $35k/year for, so you’re getting a valuable inside look. Jonathan was actually the CEO of DigitalMarketer for a bit in 2013, then moved on to a few other companies before landing at Kajabi. When he came on board, they had 30 employees and $6 million in annual recurring revenue. Now they’re at 400 employees and a 9-figure ARR. He talks openly and honestly about the things they did right (and wrong) as they built Kajabi into the billion dollar business it is today.
    Listen in for some actionable tips and strategies for growing your business in big ways.
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
    What “living breathing” tool the Kajabi team uses as much as their iPhones
    Why (and how) to be proactive instead of reactive with your hiring
    What you should be writing on LinkedIn every single day
    Why it’s so important to recognize and celebrate success within your community
