    What Top Gun Can Teach Us About Marketing

    What Top Gun Can Teach Us About Marketing

    In this episode, Joel, and Andy explain what Top Gun can teach us about marketing. It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but once you have listened to the episode you will see that a film about an elite training centre for US Navy pilots is indeed a font of knowledge for any business owner.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    You are never going to succeed on your own. You can only do so much.
    It is no good putting all of your eggs into one marketing basket.
    Don´t go too broad. Focus in on the person that will actually buy from you.
    Be careful that your default mindset is not negative.
    Get comfortable with the idea that some things are going to be hard.
    Sometimes going back to things that worked in the past is a good idea.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘With marketing, you cannot rely on one component alone. ´

    ‘You need to be laser-targeted.’

    Leaning Into It With Liam Walsh

    Leaning Into It With Liam Walsh

    In this episode, Joel speaks to one of his coaches, Liam Walsh. He helps fitness coaches to focus on what they need to do to maximise their income. Enabling them to earn well without having to burn themselves out.

     

    Liam explains what setting up two businesses taught him and how he applied those lessons to what he is doing now. He explains why you must not be afraid to speak up if something does not feel right, ask questions and be willing to push through tough times. As well as how having a plan and executing it consistently enabled him to go from zero clients to earning 13.5K a month, in under 5 months.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    Everyone tends to jump from one thing to another, wasting energy by not following through.
    Be clear about what you want from your business. How it will benefit you and your family.
    When you start a business with someone be clear about what each of you wants from it and set boundaries.
    If you are in business and you think something is not right, speak up sooner rather than later. When you don´t everyone wastes lots of time and energy.
    Never be afraid to reinvest in yourself to get time back by outsourcing everything that you can.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Having a plan laid out…stops them going off on too many tangents and ultimately procrastinating. ´

    ‘I hate losing. But it´s OK to lose provided you learn from it.’

    ‘You´ve gotta lean into your discomfort, big-time.’

    ‘Everything in your business can be passed on (outsourced).’

    Mindset: The Mindset For Success With Jean-Pierre De Villiers

    Mindset: The Mindset For Success With Jean-Pierre De Villiers

    In this episode, Joel speaks to Jean-Pierre De Villiers about how you can have the right mindset for success. Jean-Pierre explains how he went from living in poverty in South Africa to living like a rock star, in the UK, by the age of 23. A dream lifestyle that did not make him happy. A realisation that set him on the journey that has led to him becoming an inspirational life coach, author, and public speaker.

     

    He and Joel discuss the role self-confidence, physical activity, appreciating what you have now,  and being true to your values have in creating the type of success that makes you truly happy. If you don´t want to continue to be one of the 78% of people who don´t like what they do for a living, listen to this episode, take action, and transform your life.

    If your success is not in alignment with what matters to you, you are not likely to be happy.
    Create a life that is in alignment with your values.
    To get what you really want from life you need self-confidence. Without it, you won´t take risks.
    Self-confidence is a learnable skill.
    Playing is safe and settling, just makes you miserable. You owe it to yourself to go after what you really want.
    Physical activity energises you.
    Put yourself in an environment of improving yourself every single day.
    Enjoying and appreciating what you have now will vastly improve your happiness.
    Happiness is not a destination, it´s an experience.
    There are five easy things you can do to improve your happiness. Jean-Pierre shares them, in the podcast.
    Manage your energy to be inspiring.
