WE ARE STARTING SOON! (LOGIN NOW)
Have you ever thought about why some 'make it' and others don't?
In my opinion...
It comes down to the RISKS that we are willing to take.
In 2011, I took a RISK to do business with a company in the insurance industry.
THAT RISK COST MYSELF AND MY COMPANY $4.7 MILLION IN LATE JANUARY OF 2012.
At first, I thought we were TOAST!
The true entrepreneur in me exposed itself again.
I felt like an unstoppable warrior.
I built the company back up within a year by taking several HUGE RISKS.
We became more profitable in 2013 then any prior of our 10+ year run in the insurance industry.
Business was BOOMING.
Packaged and SOLD the companies February 1st of 2014 for a 7 figure contract.
This allowed me to focus on helping other service based business owners generate high-end qualified leads like I did to recover. (Which I LOVE!)
Here's your LinkedIn Official Guide and Training Video we put together on how we generate leads and on LinkedIn right now! :) (Get it now)
The guy that took a RISK primarily based on GREED and stole millions...
Well, he was sentenced and was serving 10 years in a low security federal prison UNTIL... He took yet another RISK and escaped his white collar crime prison.
That failed RISK based on greed took him straight to a high security federal prison and he most likely will remain there for a bit.
This was the beginning of many new RISKS that we would take, which includes stroking a $50K check to my first mentor ever. (I was a little nervous at first and almost backed out! BUT Beth (my wife) told me 'to grow a pair' and do it) :-)
Kinda figured it would be nice to have someone supporting, guiding, and showing me the path of least resistance.
It was great because he knew exactly what works because he failed and lost tons of cash and most importantly, TIME at the things that don't work.
I was able to skip that pain.
Most people wouldn't even CONSIDER the RISK that we took in 2014 & 2015.
I AM PERFECTLY OK WITH THAT.
We sometimes can't believe the life we have designed for ourselves.
It truly blows my mind.
THE POINT OF MY STORY
RISK eliminates 98%+ of the population from building the life that fulfills them.
BUMPS and BRUISES will happen.
I hope it's NOT a $4.7 million dollar BUMP like me. (yuk!)
If it is...
IF you are a true entrepreneur. (Mind, Body, Spirit, with a dash of CrAzY)
You will GAIN STRENGTH through that adversity.
You will overcome it.
You will eventually consider it a blessing in your life and thank God for the brilliant redirection.
I will leave you with this.
In the final phase of your life, when you are looking back through the vivid pivotal points of your life...
I will bet those pivotal points involved risk of some degree to achieve them.
We have one life to live, so let's live it in complete excellence.

Now, let me ask you a simple and IMPORTANT question…
Have you ever stayed awake at night and thought about why some people experience success after success, while others continue to fail over and over again?
I used to think about that A LOT and what I figured out is this…
Those who are willing to take big risks are usually the ones who “Make It.”
“Making it” means something different from one person to another, but it’s the point that we all desire to reach most…
Where our lives feel most fulfilled and the typical stress and overwhelm vanish, like the good weather here in the good old Midwest. Lol :)
This is the ultimate point where we are enjoying life to the fullest.
And we ONLY reach this point by taking advantage of what I call definitive moments.
A definitive moment is one that only comes along a few times in your life and if taken action on, can make a radical change in your life for the better.
I believe that what I’ll share with you today is one of these rare moments.
Now back to taking risks…
I took a big risk to partner with someone I thought would never ‘screw me’.
THAT RISK COSTS ME MILLIONS AND PUT MY FAMILY AND I UNDER EXTREME HARDSHIP.
At first, I thought we were TOAST!
And then the true entrepreneur in me REARED it’s powerful head again.
I felt unstoppable and a series of HUGE RISKS allowed me to come back MORE POWERFUL and MORE PROFITABLE than ever…
Which brings me back to Part 2 of this story when Kent Littlejohn and I were engaged in a conversation that would massively change our direction in business and our lives moving forward.
Here is what happened during that conversation…
We mapped out a MASSIVE OPPORTUNITY that had been sitting right under my nose, but overlooked because I had been so consumed with fear and worry.
We came up with an offer that using only LinkedIn and related strategy, brought in more money COLLECTED in ONE MONTH, than I generated in the entire previous year!
On top of this, there was a RESIDUAL and equity component that was set to bring in another six-figures.
All of this was accomplished in LESS THAN 30 DAYS!
And guess what?
The following 30 days, WE DID THE SAME THING… AGAIN!
And it’s IMPORTANT to note that this offer was:
INVOLVED NO FANCY WEBSITES
NO COLD CALLING
NO EARLY MORNING NETWORK MEETINGS
NO PAID LEADS THAT 5 OTHER PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY CALLED
NO 52-STEP SALES FUNNEL
NO PAID ADVERTISING
AND NO OTHER COMPLICATED MARKETING STUFF
(Not that there is anything wrong with that IF they are bringing results :))
It's MUCH more simple than you think, which you'll find out shortly.
Let’s move on… to a very brief side story that I have to share with you…
I’ll never forget the day that I received the first $10k of that first BIG REVENUE month above.
I walked into my master bathroom where my wife Jill was, and I told her that I had just generated $10k and that our struggles were over!
We hugged and cried like babies.
Tears of relief, and happiness!
I went to Amazon and found the fanciest and biggest IPad I could find and ordered it.
When it showed up, I got Jill and our children Myles and Daisy, sat down totally impromptu to record a video on it.
The video was a simple gesture from each of us thanking Kent and Beth (his wife, because it is my personal belief that behind such a great man, had to be an amazing woman) for showing up in our lives.
I then attached a sticky note to the screen with the words “Open up and watch the video”, put it back in the box and shipped it to Kent.
The rest of that story I’ll let him share if he wants :)
Now back to my story…
This was a very important lesson for me AND FOR YOU, because it proves that instead of letting our survival instincts keep us from DECIDING to live our best lives now, living to our highest and fullest potential and purpose…
WE NEED TO SAY YES to new opportunities, NO MATTER HOW SCARY OR UNCOMFORTABLE WE MIGHT FEEL.
If we always do the same thing we’ve always done and are not getting the results we want, WE MUST SAY YES TO CHANGE.
We must become comfortable placing ourselves into uncomfortable opportunities.
I could have said no to Kent because it was a new and unproven offer, and I was admittedly a little scared and uncomfortable… BUT I said YES immediately on the spot.
There was NO thinking about it, or deliberating because if you give yourself time to think, you’ll get busy and your survival instincts that bring resistance against the change you need to get what you want, will win EVERY TIME.
And you’ll be back to your everyday life as usual, which is not really the spot that any of us want to be in, when we know that we are falling short of our absolute best.
SO, SAY YES TO CHANGE AND NEW OPPORTUNITY.
(Here's an opportunity for you to say yes to positive change... Grab your LinkedIn Official Guide and Training Video we put together on how we generate leads and on LinkedIn right now! :)
It will change your life in ways you can’t even imagine yet.
Remember… I’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt! :)
Let me give you an example:
After Kent and I got to know each other more closely and spending time with him and his best friend and business partner Matt Barcus (who is another truly amazing human being) Kent called me one day and asked me if I would be interested in becoming a full partner in one of his other businesses.
He was gearing up for a change with another NEW OFFER.
It was going to be a lot of work to get it rolling and there was no guarantee that it would work, but if it did, we would change hundreds of thousands of people’s lives…
And THAT was speaking my language.
Before my survival brain could even begin to try and screw things up, I said YES, even before he explained it fully.
He even tried to make me think about it longer and talk to my wife Jill before I committed, but I told him that it was not necessary and that I was 100% in!
My wife Jill is AMAZING and knows that I will do anything and everything it takes to provide for her and our kids.
She had already moved back and forth across the country twice for me to chase my dreams AND supported me leaving my fancy six-figure corporate job for entrepreneurship.
She does it because she loves me and wants me to be happy.
She also knows that to get anywhere in life, you must BE WILLING TO DO THE THINGS THAT MOST PEOPLE WON’T DO.
Doing uncomfortable things NOW in order to create comfort later.
In other words, GETTING COMFORTABLE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE by doing the uncomfortable things EVERY DAY!
On top of that, Jill is the type of person that loves helping people (just like my Nana) and has personally witnessed the positive impact I’ve made on people’s lives through my businesses.
She supports me 1000%.
She is what I call my “Ride or Die Chick!”
So, I said YES to Kent... to his offer of becoming a full partner and we quickly got to work putting together a world class team and the BEST BUSINESS PROGRAMS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE.
The brand name is High End Client.
We are changing lives in MASSIVE ways, with hundreds of people seeing FAST, incredible changes in their lives and businesses.
When I say our High End Client programs are the best programs available to consistently and predictably generate leads and clients like clockwork, it’s because we ONLY help our clients implemet strategies that we've already tested and proven in our own businesses...
Plus, we know what's out there because we’ve personally been involved in a lot of the other programs and the rest we purchased.
We also have clients that come to us all the time from other well-known programs, who are not seeing the results they’d hoped for.
They are tired of riding the train to nowhere and realize time is ticking and it’s better to look back on life with ZERO REGRETS.
After all, it’s not the chances people take that they regret at the end of their life, it’s the chances they didn’t take.
Our programs are designed to get fast results (days or weeks fast) for our clients and the people they serve.
Whether you call your people customers, clients or patients, we have people like you in our program reaching levels in their businesses that they had only dreamed about prior to connecting with us.
We are currently experiencing MASSIVE growth due to the consistent and predictable results our clients are getting... (Continued below)
We will change thousands of lives through our High End Client programs…
And this is the reason why I believe that my business getting stolen from me was the best thing that has happened to me, because it forced me into new growth and new opportunity in all areas of my life.
It made me better in business, but MORE IMPORTANTLY, it made me a better husband, father, brother, best friend and business partner.
It was a blessing and regardless of the fact that a lot of people would call it a bad blessing, I see it as just a blessing.
Something that had to happen for me to grow, to be put on a NEW path leading to bigger and better things.
Everything and I mean EVERYTHING in my life has happened for a reason and I would not change any of it.
You must look forward and not backward.
Grow from your experiences.
Be open to and say YES to new opportunity.
Push back and overcome your natural human survival instinct and the resistance it brings, that causes you to put off until tomorrow, what you MUST TAKE ACTION ON TODAY.
Your life will change in incredible ways and THAT IS A FACT!
How long have you been waiting to be happy?
To have the right job?
To have the right partner?
The right diet?
To start a new business?
To grow your business?
To get unstuck?
AREN’T YOU TIRED OF WAITING?
You need to become powerful by starting to take action TODAY and EVERY DAY, even the smallest of actions.
Much like you making the decision to read this entire story.
A small action, but you did it!
And if you will make the simple changes I have described here, you’ll make HUGE progress in ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE.
Pick something else you’ve been wanting to act on and do it NOW.
The best time to act on a feeling is RIGHT NOW.
Thinking about it just makes it harder.
If you’re waiting until the time is right, STOP.
The time will never be right. That is a myth and a dangerous one I hope I’ve proven to you by now.
Make the time NOW.
The more you wait, the less likely you will act, and regret will end of haunting you, like it does for so many well-intentioned people who allow it to happen.
Your life could be amazing and it only takes one simple thing…
Waiting is the enemy.
If there is something you want to do, you need to take action and do it now…
If you do what most people do, who wait for the right time or are telling yourself that you’ll get around to it SOMEDAY…
To start a business.
To grow a business or create more leverage in your business.
Or to take a family vacation.
Whatever it is, the TIME IS NOW.
If you look at your clock at any point in the day, the time will always be now.
And someday is not ever coming.
Life and your survival brain instinct will ALWAYS get in the way, IF you let it.
You are never guaranteed tomorrow, which is why TODAY is so important to YOU and to ME.
A few weeks ago, I got sick, dehydrated and passed out while washing my hands in the bathroom.
I fell and hit my head three different times. I suffered lacerations on my head and my chin and had a huge contusion across my forehead which came with a concussion and kept me in bed for a while (which explains the wild hair in the photo below -lol)
I remember laying there on the floor confused and not totally aware of what happened.
I could not move or speak.
It was like that phenomenon where you lay in bed feeling like you’re awake, but you cannot move or speak…
The crazy thing is that at the time my wife found me laying on the bathroom floor, my blood pressure had dropped to deadly levels.
I had to be rushed by ambulance to the hospital.
Jill thought I was dead and the reality is that I may have been, had the incident happened just 20 mins later than it did, because she would have already left the house to take the kids to school.
The point is that I could have died, but I didn’t.
What it reminded me of, is that we only have today, right now in this moment, to decide for ourselves what we want to do.
There is no tomorrow, next week, next month or someday “when the time is right” or whatever our survival brain or fear is telling us.
THERE IS ONLY NOW… RIGHT NOW.
If you are ready to experience the REAL CHANGE that you’ve been wanting and resisting in your life, I want to give you a chance to say YES and take the first step RIGHT NOW.
You’ll be taking the first step to getting results like you’ve seen from our other clients.
