What’s Behind the Success?
I love my work. I get to help people all over the world create businesses they love – and I get to enjoy a pretty incredible lifestyle while doing it. So how did I make that happen? Here are a few things that made a huge difference for me…
So this week is just a simple gratitude.
I can't believe the life I get to lead. Just a few weeks ago, I did my Launch Masterclass. We had tens of thousands of people go through that. We had people register from 211 countries, which is amazing.
Leading up into it, I did case studies with 24 of my students. And so we did that over the span of four days. It was six a day for four days, I think is what we did. And each one of those days was me sitting there and spending 30 to 60 minutes with each person and getting to hear them tell me about the amazing results that they'd gotten and thanked me for being able to change their lives.
And so I did that launch. It went really, really well. We made a lot of money, which is good. I think we helped a ton of people, both those people that ended up upgrading to our Product Launch Formula, but also all those tens of thousands of people who didn't, who just went through the free stuff. I think that made their lives way better.
And then I got to take a week out in the wilderness, and now I'm heading to my LaunchCon event – which looks like we could have 1000 people there or more than 1000 people at that LaunchCon event. And it's going to be just an amazing event, and I get to show off the stars of my PLF community, and we're going to have a ton of fun and it's just going to be exciting.
And this life, how did this happen? It's just absolutely ridiculous because I started with those super humble beginnings.
You may have heard that story of – I was a stay at home dad, hadn't made any money in so long… And now I look, it's been about 25 years. And it's been a lot of work over those 25 years, but to go from this place where our family was. We were in pretty serious financial distress, or maybe distresses is overstating it. But there was not much money to go around. We were barely scraping by.
And, psychologically, times were hard and I hadn't made any money and I hadn't had a job in five or six years. And I was staying home taking care of the kids and that was great. But still, I thought there was something else out there. And to turn around to see where I'm at now is ridiculous.
I often talk about those baby steps and putting one foot in front of the other and just figuring out what the next step is. And that's how all of this happened for me. That, and learning about marketing and direct marketing and continually getting better at marketing and continually working on my marketing skills so that I could basically express myself in a way that people would want to buy from me. And that made a huge difference. And it's just been a rocket ride up from there. Plus a lot of personal development, a lot of putting good habits in place, and a lot of just perseverance and one foot in front of the other – baby steps. Because it all looks like beauty and grace right now. But there was plenty of times in there where it wasn't all beauty and grace, where I was confused, where I wasn't confident, where I didn't know the next step. But I just took the next best step, whatever that was.
So, just a simple, short message of gratitude that I can't believe who I get to work with, who I get to help… The people I have on my team are incredible. I've got this incredible team around me now, my partners and my PLF Owners and my community – I have just so much gratitude for all of them.
And of course my family. My wife supported me every step of the way, even when I didn't have a clue what was going on, she was behind me all the way. My kids, behind me all the way. My parents, behind me all the way. And I know that's not something that everyone has. And I have a lot of gratitude for that.
So that's all I've got for you. I don't know if I've just done a pure out gratitude video for you, but, yeah, I just can't believe this life I get to lead.
Come out and see me at LaunchCon, and let's go get ‘em this week.
