07.26.22 - Making money is good
Interesting contrarian take from Dan Kennedy popped up in my notes review this morning.
Oftentimes the question regarding your “mission” has been something along the lines of:
What would you do if you could only do it for free?
Kennedy’s like “yea f*ck that” lol.
Money is interwoven into how humans make decisions, and it always will be.
But it cannot be king.
People go wrong when they live in the extremes. The question, “what would you do if money was not the ONLY decision maker” is harder to answer, because it is nuanced.
So humans simplify the decision by making it black or white: “if you could make NO money what would you do?”
The question loses it’s difficulty then but also it’s utility.
-What would you do if you weren’t allowed to eat?
-What would you do if you couldn’t ever move again?
-What would you do if you had to live without the sun or any light and sit in the dark?
See how silly these questions are??
They’re they same type of question but they do not help you… they operate inside a nonexistent made up fairytale scenario designed to remove nuance from a question that requires nuance.
It is okay to enjoy surplus.
It is GOOD to have MORE than enough (otherwise known as abundance).
You should not be poor.
It’s better to be rich.
AND (not but) there are other assets that are ALSO important.
Wealthy people focus on both/and.
Let’s enjoy the day!
Oh, and P.S.
💥 Event at end of month with me, our Wealthy Consultant team, my friend Rich Schefren, Joey Gilkey (we will offer livestream tickets for those of you who can’t make it in person — but in person will be better cause duh)
This event will have a VIP night beforehand for dinner with our team, some clients, and Rich / Joey. Rich has 15 BILLION dollars of attributable revenue to his name. Joey is a world class “outbound” (aka cold) sales agency founder. He’ll be teaching how to master your sales cycle even if you’re using cold / outbound methods.
💥 FOUR Arena calls (they’re fire — ask anybody who’s a member… life changing stuff every Monday at 10:30a CST)
💥 SIX MDC Coaching / Consulting calls ranging form ads, to TAM, to offer, to etcetera
💥 Memo “Call-In” on the 16th (last one was FIRE… btw Memo shipped today… merry Christmas)
💥 We’re planning products out into September… we have another live event here in Nashville in November (already lining up guests… the level of content & training you’re about to see from us… not gonna say anything more, just gonna show you)
We’re just gearing up boys and girls hope you’re having a good time.
With July over (almost), we’re officially tilting into the LAST HALF of the year. The best time to start was January but.. we didn’t exist then. So the second best time is now.
Our process is ridiculously simple. Happy to help you build it out (whether you end up becoming a client, or not).
See you later this week!
