    BEST MOMENTS

    "I want to be the least successful person in the room because I do believe that you become the average of the five people that you surround yourself with."

    "Our vision as a business is creating memories through celebrations. Everyone has a party, everyone celebrates, there's some horrible things going on in the world right now. different wars, a new government potentially, you know, there's a lot of uncertainty. And I just think that parties, one Brits love a party, but you create so many memories through a celebration and that's our vision."

    S4E10: The Art of Automation with Marketing Automation Expert Chris Dillon

    S4E10: The Art of Automation with Marketing Automation Expert Chris Dillon

    Doug interviews Chris Dillon, the automation expert who shares his secrets to success. Chris reveals how setting clear goals and implementing clever automation strategies can transform your business and personal life. Discover the power of creating "Mickey Boat moments" for your loved ones and learn how to achieve your dreams while enjoying the journey.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    Automation removes regular tasks and sets clear expectations with prospects, nurturing them through the sales process without removing the human touch.
    Setting specific, measurable goals with a deadline helps break down the steps needed to achieve them and removes the pressure of daily targets.
    AI will fundamentally change many aspects of work, but it's an opportunity to utilise it to make life easier rather than a threat to jobs.
    Creating meaningful experiences and memories for loved ones, or "Mickey Boat moments," is a powerful motivator for achieving business success.
    Passion for what you do is essential for overcoming the challenges of running a business and staying motivated.
    Understanding that prospects have lives outside of your business and making it easy for them to engage with you is crucial for converting leads.
    Small, consistent improvements (the "1% task") can lead to significant changes over time, so focus on long-term progress rather than short-term gains.
    Don't bring people into your life who don't align with your core values, even if they offer financial benefits.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    "I class [automation] as two different things. One is the removal of regular tasks... and secondly, it's the act of using good automation to set really clear expectations with prospects and not removing the human from the process."  

    "My fundamental purpose is bringing those moments, more moments to myself, more moments to my loved ones, and more moments to the good people that I surround myself with. That's what drives me."  

    "People massively underestimate what they can do in five years and massively overestimate what they can do in one."

    "If you're setting a goal for the sake of setting a goal... if you don't have a passion for what is going to get you to that goal, then you'll never get there because there's so much about running a business that isn't easy."

    "Too many business owners think, right, they're not getting back to me. They're not picking up the phone. They must not be interested. It's like, no, they just have a life. And they don't care about your phone call more than their life."

    S4E07: Holistic Goal Setting: Aligning Mind, Body, and Business Laura Di Franco

    S4E07: Holistic Goal Setting: Aligning Mind, Body, and Business Laura Di Franco

    Doug Bennett interviews holistic health expert and award-winning publisher Laura Di Franco. They discuss the importance of setting and achieving goals, journaling, and treating the whole being for optimal health. Laura shares her insights on building a successful business, the mind-body connection, and the power of self-love.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    Writing down goals is crucial for success; it sends a message to your subconscious that you're serious about achieving them.
    Building a strong team is essential for business growth, especially for solopreneurs with many ideas.
    Holistic health involves treating the whole being, including the physical body, mind, and soul, for optimal healing and performance.
    Self-love and self-care are the foundation for spreading love and positivity in the world.
    Journaling is a powerful tool for self-awareness, channelling creativity, and moving energy.
    Overthinking can hinder progress; focus on the present moment and take action instead of worrying about potential outcomes.
    Your purpose has a face and a name. Learn to understand your ideal client or audience on a deep, personal level to create meaningful offerings.
    Building communities and collaborating with others can help holistic health professionals share their messages and grow their businesses.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "When it's out loud, it's real. When you put it out of your head and you get it into black and white on the screen, the paper... That's an awareness tool."

    "If I wasn't helping the whole being... if I was not going to treat these clients as a whole, I would be missing something really important."  

    "Fall in love with yourself. And then, you know, watch the laser beam of light that you are for that love in the world."

     "I write to feng shui my soul first. Like, it's not about really that important thing that's in there, because if it's that important, you'll find it. You'll go back and you'll find the notes. It's more about the process of moving the energy."  

    "We're better together. And so that helps, I think a little to understand who I'm serving”

    S4E06: Unlocking Your Authentic Self: Human Design for Effortless Goal Setting with Charlie Garnham

    S4E06: Unlocking Your Authentic Self: Human Design for Effortless Goal Setting with Charlie Garnham

    Doug Bennett interviews Charlie Garnham, a human design expert who helps entrepreneurs understand their unique selves to create effortless visibility strategies. Charlie introduces the concept of human design, the most accurate personality test based on your time and place of birth, and explains how it can help you set goals aligned with your true self. Discover how to recognise conditioning, embrace your authentic nature, and achieve success on your own terms in this fascinating discussion.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Human Design is based on your time and place of birth and can help you understand your unique self and set goals aligned with your true nature.
    The five Human Design types are Generators, Manifesting Generators, Projectors, Manifesters, and Reflectors, each with different ways of setting and achieving goals.
    Conditioning from society, media, and upbringing can lead you to set goals that aren't aligned with your authentic self.
    Goals should be set according to your Human Design type - mastery for Generators, multi-passionate pursuits for Manifesting Generators, feeling-based for Projectors, impact-driven for Manifesters, and group-oriented for Reflectors.
    Recognising feelings of frustration, bitterness, anger, or disappointment can indicate you're out of alignment with your true self.
    Your body's intelligence is more powerful than your ego mind when making decisions.
    Balancing masculine and feminine energy is important when setting goals, regardless of gender.
    Human Design can help you make decisions based on your body's intelligence rather than your ego mind.

    BEST MOMENTS

    "Human design is the most accurate personality test that you will ever take”. 

    "Sometimes it's, that's a masculine way of doing things and, you know, even as a woman, that's not a problem to have a masculine, you know, sort of goal."

    "When you understand your type in human design, the next thing that you learn is your decision making process. And this is definitely one of my favourite parts of human design."  

    "Human design decision making can actually help you to understand how you are designed to make decisions and you can actually start listening to your body more rather than your mind." 

    "It's crazy, but it's true."
