    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.

    First of all, I must admit that when I saw that title, I was a little leery...Secret society? Really, Tim?
    Then, I read the book.
    In case it isn't made obvious by the fact that he's my guest this week, this book has an incredible message and it deserves a spot in your library (and in your brain).

    Your Greatest Asset in the Recession

    Your Greatest Asset in the Recession

    I'd like to preface this by acknowledging that America is not officially in a recession, and that things may not get as bad as some of the typical sources of gloom and doom would have us believe.

    There are, however, some facts that can't be denied. As we continue to recover from the costs of the pandemic and the threat of war still looms over us, things will no doubt get worse in some sectors. The fear that the fearmongers are spreading is not completely unfounded.

    This week, I'd like to remind you of some facts to counter those fearmongers. Not just a motivational speech, but some valid observations from someone who has lived through unpleasant economic times before...me.


    [00:00] Intro - The fear [00:54] Past recessions [02:34] What now? [03:46] Your most valuable asset is... [04:26] Being me... [06:52] Culture and clarity [07:55] Your community [08:52] Courage

    5 Reasons Why You Must Write a Book

    5 Reasons Why You Must Write a Book

    If you have a goal of building a successful online business, I know of no better way to quickly build a reputable, memorable, brand, than by writing a book.

    This isn't some tidbit I picked up somewhere - I've experienced this personally. My book, How to Write Copy That Sells, has sold about 30,000 copies since it was released in 2016. That's certainly not enough book sales for me to retire on, but the amount of business that book has generated for my company has resulted in millions of dollars in revenue.

    This week, I'm giving you 5 good reasons why you MUST write a book.


    [00:00] Intro - Who is Ray Edwards? [01:30] Five good reasons to write a book [01:44] Reason 1 - To be an Authority [02:07] Reason 2 - A useful, bestselling book is the Ultimate sales letter for your company [02:30] Reason 3 - Your bestselling book should become the hub of your digital business [02:51] Reason 4 - Free publicity (and a whole lot more) [03:01] Reason 5 - Your bestselling book is the key to getting speaking gigs (on podcasts, stages, etc.) [03:23] The fast track to building your personal brand [03:44] You don't get rich selling your book... [04:09] What kind of book? [05:43] How do you write a useful, bestselling book? [07:20] The best of both worlds [08:00] What does it take to have a bestseller? [08:40] What a book proposal really is, and how I got one [09:33] Who is Jeff Goins? [09:57] How I got my book deal (with a $150k advance) / Bestseller Bootcamp

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.
