    The Future of Sales

    The Future of Sales

    In this episode of Scaling Life, I share how you can sell high ticket offers without relying on endless sales calls.
     
    Highlights: 
     
    I was closing 60-70% of deals but my team was only closing 20%
    Someone suggested I stop doing sales calls altogether which sounded crazy
    I looked at companies like Tesla selling high ticket products online without calls
    My team and I rebuilt our sales funnel around social selling over 4-5 months
    One morning I woke up to a 12k sale from someone I'd never talked to!
    Now I spend just 4-5 hours a week chatting on social platforms
    Last quarter I made 300k in sales chatting only 4-5 hours a week
    Get your ears around this episode and start thinking differently.

    Exploring Identity Shifts: Golf, Mindsets & Big Life Changes

    Exploring Identity Shifts: Golf, Mindsets & Big Life Changes

    In today’s candid episode of Scaling Life, I’m sharing about how my identity has shifted over the years. As an entrepreneur and human, I’m not the same person I was 5 or 10 years ago. I chat with my Petter-Erik about taking up golf later in life, pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones, and our changing priorities as the kids grow up. Tune in to hear us reflect openly on who we’ve become compared to who we thought we were.
     
    Episode Highlights:
     
    - Why we decided to start playing golf in our 40s and how it challenges us.
    - Comparing golf practice to important lessons in persistence and self-competition. 
    - Exploring how we’ve evolved to be more confident and willing to try new things.
    - The difficult identity shift as my kids grow up and leave home.

    The Art of Authenticity: Kurtis Goodwolf on Finding Your True Voice Behind the Mic

    The Art of Authenticity: Kurtis Goodwolf on Finding Your True Voice Behind the Mic

    I had an enlightening discussion with my friend and Scaling Life Podcast producer, Kurtis Goodwolf in this week's episode where we explored the elusive concept of authenticity. 
     
    What does it really mean to be true to yourself? How can we break free from society's rules and judgments to embrace our most authentic voice? 
     
    Kurtis shared profound insights from his journey as a musician busking on the streets of Dublin, to working on some of the worlds biggest podcasts like Ben Greenfield Fitness, Mindvalley and Well Beyond 40, and about the work it takes to strip away our habitual patterns and dig deeper. 
     
    Key takeaways:
    - Why we craft personas to conform to expectations and how to rediscover our inner truth 
    - His brilliant tactic for helping people hear their real voice
    - Why podcasting is the perfect tool for growing yourself, your brand and your business
    - That the bravest act is taking the stage, not how perfectly you perform   
    - How the spark of an idea you initially doubt is usually your most authentic self
     
    "You gotta go old school. You gotta turn off your social media. You gotta turn off your phone. You gotta turn off your devices. You gotta put that time aside on a daily basis and really think about ‘’Who are you?" - Kurtis Goodwolf

    The Toxic Law of Jante: Smashing Society's Pressures and Embracing Your Unique Self

    The Toxic Law of Jante: Smashing Society's Pressures and Embracing Your Unique Self

    In this week's episode of Scaling Life, I'm sharing my thoughts on killing the "Law of Jante" - societal rules that keep people small - once and for all. 
     
    Episode Highlights:
     
    - The 10 limiting rules of the Scandinavian "Law of Jante" and how they made me feel
     
    - Why comparing ourselves to others and trying to fit in does us no good  
     
    - The problems with thinking in "us vs them" and trying to be part of the "in crowd"
     
    - Icelanders hadn't even heard of the Law of Jante - they are more adventurous and self-confident
     
    - My belief that every human has way more potential than they are actually living up to
     
    - The importance of letting our own inner light shine without fear of judgment 
     
    - Tips for breaking through self-limiting beliefs and assumptions
     
    - Quotes from thought leaders like Marianne Williamson on embracing our uniqueness
     
    "When you let your own light shine, you unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." - Marianne Williamson 
     
    This was a personally transformative episode for me. I hope it inspires you to let your freak flag fly and kill any rules holding you back from your potential.
