Today's episode is a little different; it's the first in a series she is launching called Mastering Excellence. Nikki's guest today is Shane Sams, the host of The Flipped Lifestyle Podcast and the Founder of FlippedLifestyle.com. Listen as Nikki asks Shane some questions she pulled from an NLP modeling project to tap into Shane's brain and talk about his process for mastering excellence, plus much more on this episode of the Sales Maven Show.
Listen as Shane shares how he turns ideas into money and why he says until he can make someone vote with their wallet, it's not a good idea; it's just a plan. Before you spend a bunch of time and money on something, ask people if they would buy it. Shane discusses how his team works and what each person does to keep the train rolling while leaving him with some unstructured time to sit down with a notepad to figure out new ideas.
"I'm not trying to get rich quick; I'm trying to get rich forever." Shane discusses his goals when implementing ideas and why it's not important to wait until you have a detailed sales page to get your idea out there. Shane shares how he knows he's achieved his goal when implementing an idea to generate revenue. If one person buys it, then other people will also buy it. Shane also discusses the seven phases of building a membership site.
Shane shares when he knows it's time to stop and move on to something else and who inspires him. He says that he and his wife celebrate big wins by moving on to the next big idea, but they also like to spend time in Mexico. Shane's favorite sport is youth cheerleading, and when he was in high school, he always hung out with the nerds.
Shane is so inspiring, and he drops nuggets of brilliance through this entire episode, so believe me when I say you don't want to miss one second of what Shane Sams shares.
