    Richie Norton on Anti-Time Management

    Richie Norton on Anti-Time Management

    If you're an entrepreneur, I'd be shocked if you didn't own at least two books on the subject of time management. I'd be even more shocked if you own a time management book that I haven't read.
    I've been fascinated with this particular subject since my high school days. That's quite a few years ago (decades in fact), so it seemed unlikely that anyone could completely change the way I manage my time at this stage of the game.
    Then along came Richie Norton, and his book, Anti-Time Management, did exactly that. It's a brilliant new perspective on a topic that is nearly as old as the sundial.

    In this week's episode, I talk with Richie about how to "Reclaim Your Time and Revolutionize Your Results with The Power of Time Tipping".

    Thinking About the End

    Thinking About the End

    This week, I wanted to tackle a huge question: "Is this the end?"

    Spoiler Alert: No. It isn't.

    We're dealing with unpleasant realities at this time. Tune into the news, and you hear things like:

    Recession Inflation High Interest Rates the Labor Market the Great Resignation Bear Market Supply Chain Shortages War in Europe
    It's important to realize that the news media is in the business of selling fear. I don't mean to vilify the media...Fear is what we buy the most of, so that's mostly what they sell.

    But, how bad are things, really?

    Let's take a few minutes to break down where we are, how we got here, and what's next. 


    [00:00] Intro / Declaring your independence [02:05] It's not that bad [02:54] The news sells fear (As they say, "If it bleeds, it leads.") [03:50] What really happened [05:50] The housing market (according to Dave Ramsey) [07:09] For those under 35... [08:20] Tips on beating inflation [08:47] Get a side-hustle - Tax advantages for owning a business (legal, moral, ethical ones) [09:21] Copywriting - the BEST side-hustle [10:30] Can I train others to do what I've done? (case study: Dawn Apuan) [18:30] You can do this on your own (it just takes longer) [19:23] We're taking applications now - visit https://rayedwards.com/sidehustle

    This Is Your Time to Become a Millionaire Entrepreneur

    This Is Your Time to Become a Millionaire Entrepreneur

    This week's episode is not a puffed-up pep talk (although there maybe some motivational side effects). When I say THIS is the time to become an entrepreneur, I mean it...And I have 7 great reasons that back it up.

     
    [00:00] Intro / Why now? [01:00] Let's define "entrepreneur" (Ryan Moran) [02:05] No retreat! [02:19] Seven reasons why... [02:22] Now is the time to re-form the habits that shape your future. (Think if you had saved $500 a month 20 years ago). Right habits are NECESSARY for SURVIVAL ... but don’t live in SURVIVAL MODE! “Act to survive, form habits to thrive.” [03:13] Build your business to scale, and begin to lay the foundation now with un-scalable actions. (You are more “Scalable” than you think!) [05:52] Invest in assets, attention and people - all are on sale. “Invest in acquisition of attention today, be wealthy tomorrow.” [08:27] There is less competition, because people behave like sheep; when they fear, they huddle. “When the tide goes out, we instantly see who was skinny-dipping.” [10:44] There is a land-grab available, and it won’t last. “Those who make the widest and deepest deposits of their best ideas and value will win the long game.” [14:10] During recession, if you are creating & building, you are 2-5 years ahead of everyone else. “Rational optimism is the ultimate advantage, and it is both attractive and contagious.” [15:17] Start now, where are you are, with what you have. It is impossible to drive a car that is parked in the garage.

One of my all time Fav podcast

More than a copywriting podcast

Ray’s dry sense of humor, wit, and ability to communicate a wide variety of subjects makes him far more than “just” the best copywriter ever. His willingness to share not only his knowledge but love of God, struggles, and humanness, make him an excellent podcast host. I’m not even a copywriter, but he makes me want to be one.
