    252 - Bad Dad

    Please go and get a pen and pad!  You need to copy and remember every word ET starts this podcast with as he explains his frustration with contradictions. The contradictions of people who say they want success, they’re in the right place to obtain success, have every opportunity to make it happen, but they don’t want to do it what it takes. ET is convinced that the core problem with people who aren’t where they want to be is because they continue to contradict themselves. CJ, Karl, and Jemal chime in, and all the guys self-assess to see where and if they’re contradicting themselves in any area of life.

    Do you find yourself always giving out discounts to keep or attract new clients? When explaining your services to a prospective client, do you become nervous about sharing your services' costs because you're afraid of their response? Today on the podcast, the guys talk about how to get over the pricing hump and charge what you're worth. At the beginning of E's career, he wasn't getting 5-6 figures a speech. So,  there were a few things the guys did to get him there.
