The Momentum Podcast is for those who of us who think differently — made especially for empire builders, game-changers, trailblazers, record makers, and creators of all kinds. Those among us who can’t turn it off, and don’t know why anyone would want to. We challenge complacency, destroy apathy, and we are obsessed with creating momentum.
While the rest of the world strives for average and clings desperately to the status quo, you and I are compelled to move forward and change the world.
We are the minority, the few, who are willing to hallucinate there could be a better future. Instead of just daydreaming of what could be, we endure the vulnerability and exposure it takes to make it real. We are the evolutionary hunters. The most important people in the world because entrepreneurs are the only source of consistent, positive human evolution, and we always will be.
824 - Create a Performance Culture
In this episode, I want to convince you that the only culture you want in your business is a culture of performance.
I've had countless entrepreneurs tell me things like, “Alex, I know we're not making the money we want right now, and maybe the business isn't profitable, but we have such a great culture!"
Statements like this make me cringe. With a great culture, projects are successful, things get done on time, and the business makes money and grows.
If these things aren't happening, you may love your team, but you don't have a performance culture, and a performance culture is what makes companies great.
823 - Keep Score in Sales
In the last episode of the podcast “Get Unstuck in Sales” I shared the process for any entrepreneur to get out of sales and move into more strategic activities in your business.
In this episode, I share the simple tactic I have used repeatedly as a consultant to immediately improve any sales team's performance.
When I talk to an entrepreneur and this is missing on their sales team, I immediately know they are not getting the maximum productivity out of the team, and they could be selling more.
822 - Get Unstuck in Sales
If you are an entrepreneur who has grown your business by doing most of the sales yourself, this podcast is for you. Offloading sales to someone else who can do them for you is one of the biggest catalysts for growth that you will have if you are in this position.
Sales is where I see entrepreneurs get stuck, resulting in a business plateau. If the business doesn't Plateau, staying in sales where I see entrepreneurs working too many hours and feeling stuck in the business's tactics.
If you have a straightforward process for successfully offloading sales, you can release this tactical activity in your business so that you can focus on strategy. Strategy and longer-term thinking are what will grow your business.
In this podcast I share the process for offloading sales so that you can grow the business you want.
821 - Release Background Noise
This weekend was awesome. I went to the Formula 1 race in Austin with my friends Brian and Haley Burt. They are extraordinary entrepreneurs, and I share some of their company story in this podcast. Watching them go from just a couple of people a few years ago to over 100 people and an eight-figure business has been incredible.
After the race, while we were waiting for our ride, Brian shared a story that blew me away. It includes the scariest government organization in the United States and is a lesson for all of us.
I got permission from Brian to share this so that you can learn from him like I did.
820 - Compartmentalization Creates Competition
You have probably been told that compartmentalizing your life will help you get more done. I know I’ve heard this over and over again. When I was younger, I heard it so often that I thought it was true.
These days, when I hear someone say that we need to compartmentalize, I cringe.
Not only is successful compartmentalization near impossible, but compartmentalization also creates unhealthy competition in our lives.
If you have been trying to compartmentalize your life, I suggest you stop.
In this episode, I share a more productive way to prioritize and achieve the outcomes that are important to you. And it won't drive you crazy the way the compartmentalization will.
