    What's More Important than Mindset?

    What's More Important than Mindset?

    These days, a lot of the gurus are starting to refocus on mindset. It makes sense.


    When things get hectic and clients go crazy, getting them back in a healthy state of mind is important. But is it the only thing that matters? And if there's something that matters more, what is it?


    We answer those questions in this week's podcast. We also explore:

    Why Nathan and Landon can no longer be friends
    The main reason some people end up becoming entrepreneurs
    What Landon see as the next step in self-development and sales and marketing
    The number one relationship you need to start focusing more of your energy on TODAY
    Why so many "gurus" will lead you down a path to nowhere
    The main reason sales and marketing don't work for most people
    Why "mindset" alone, won't save you
    How to know you're on the right path for you
    What you can learn about life from playing golf
    And a lot more

    Success, Happiness, and Other Lies Your Guru Told You

    Success, Happiness, and Other Lies Your Guru Told You

    Modern society has a lot of ass-backwardness to it.


    People's goals and values seem all out of whack. They chase and never find what they're looking for. It starts to feel like a giant hamster's wheel. Our priorities prevent us from getting what we're after. It can start to feel like on giant cluster-funk.


    Then, something like what we're going through now happens, and it feels like the whole society is off to the madhouse. So how can you keep yourself on track while the world is falling apart around you?


    We answer that, and explore:

    The biggest difference between persuasion and influence
    What people mean when they say "it's all mindset"
    The most important relationship in your life to invest in
    Why Landon never even wanted to start the Sales Gorilla, and what changed his mind
    The foundational steps most people skip over, and how it stops them from reaching their potential
    Skills we've lost that make it harder to connect with prospects
    Why convenience is making it harder to get quality clients
    What happens when people get what they want, and they still aren't happy
    Proof that most people are chasing things they don't actually want
    They only two things you have control over and why those are the only things you should be giving your energy to
    And a lot more
    All in this week's podcast.

    The Woo Behind Getting Clients

    The Woo Behind Getting Clients

    Getting clients is not about templates and scripts. It's not about secret posting strategies to attract the right people. It's not about joining the right Facebook group and presenting the most professional face possible.


    It's about something completely different. The foundation for making everything else work is something that most people never even consider. Is it something that you've overlooked as well?


    In this week's podcast, we reveal the one thing you really need to have in place before all of the other stuff will work for you. We also get into:

    What the biggest name in sales teach (that has nothing to do with sales)
    Why relationships with others never work until you have a good relationship with yourself (and what that means for getting more clients)
    How to overcome a bad first impression
    The biggest reason we hate and reject change
    The one thing that holds back even the most successful people out there
    How to get to the next level when you feel stuck in your entrepreneurial journey
    Why enrolling for another online course might actually make things WORSE
    Proof that even the most successful people might not have their sh!t together like we think they do
    The real reason we're here in the first place
    And a whole lot more

On the mark

Landon’s advice makes sense. Even on episodes where I think this might not be for me, I learn something.

TranceGorilla ,

Very motivating!

When I am having a bad day or week or month, Landon helps pull me out of the funk and get me motivated again. :) Thanks Landon!

If you pay attention, you just might learn something ;-)

Around our house we like to say, "You learn something new every day...but only if you're paying attention." Every. Single. Moment. of this podcast is filled with something new -- and hugely valuable -- to learn. In Episode 1 alone, the mind-shift from desperation/scarcity to positive indifference/abundance will transform your approach to your business if you truly understand it. Off to binge-listen and catch up!
