Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast! MJ DeMarco is today’s special guest.  He is an author and successful business owner.  MJ wrote a book called The Millionaire Fastlane.   In it, he describes how he built a company, basically, from the ground up, and then he was able to sell this company for millions of dollars. DeMarco is also the founder and administrator at TheFastlaneForum.com, which is a worldwide discussion forum that’s dedicated to the advancement of fast lane entrepreneurship.  This forum has over 130,000 visitors a month, and it is one of the leading destinations for startup entrepreneurs and offers discussions on how to grow a business.  What M.J. is really doing, overall, is calling out to folks that are tired of taking a “slow and steady” pace and the conventional ways of growing wealth and a business.  Welcome to the show M.J.

Promise: How to Found a Business on "Product-o-cracy"

First, thanks for having me.  I appreciate it.  I would say that the big result we’re looking for today is how to create a business that is founded on what I call a “product-o-cracy”.  That’s actually not discussed in Fastlane.  It’s discussed in the new book that I released, but a product-o-cracy allows business owners to grow virally.  It allows them to grow beyond a linear construct.  Essentially, it puts them in the driver’s seat to, pardon the phrase, “print money.” [bctt tweet="A “product-o-cracy” is based upon a unique product offering/service that is not offered by someone else." via="no"] A good example of a way to look at this is that there’s always a restaurant in your neighborhood, or in your city, that’s always crowded, but they don’t advertise.  That’s the essence of a product-o-cracy.  It’s when you have a product that is compelled by word-of-mouth and there’s an expansion, so the need to advertise becomes secondary.

A lot of entrepreneurs are not running product-o-cracies; they are running marketing firms.  So if they stop advertising, their business slowly starts to die.  That’s the difference between just a regular old business and a company that’s running a product-o-cracy.  A great example of a product-o-cracy is my book The Millionaire Fastlane.  I think that I must have spent $3,000 in total on promoting it since it was released seven or eight years ago.  The growth was not because I’m some kind of great marketer or because I hacked something.  The growth was because the product was good enough for people to recommend over and over, and that, in essence, is the product-o-cracy.

Rob KosbergWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Today’s special guest is Rob Kosberg.  Not only is Rob a great guy, the kind of guy a person would want to do business with, but he also knows how to make things happen.  First of all, he’s a #1 bestselling author and the founder of BestsellerPublishing.org.  He’s been featured all over the national media.  This includes ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and The Wall Street Journal.

I don’t know what the percentages are, but the vast majority of authors that write books don’t make any money from their books.  I mean, it’s got to be 97:3, or 99:1, or whatever.  The fact that people don’t take action on the things they need to do is actually really good for those of us that do take action, right?  If there are some people who are paying attention right now, all you really have to do is execute on the stuff that we’re talking about, and that we’re going to talk about. [bctt tweet="The truth of the matter is that because of your book a number of people will see you as an authority." username="danielhall"] They’ll be interested in booking you with the major media, and they will want to buy your stuff.  That’s because they need help in whatever way that you can help them.  Look, people not taking action is always the problem.  If they would just do it, they’d be successful.

With these strategies in place, you can even go into larger, more competitive markets, and get more clicks for pennies on the dollar, rather than spending dollars at a time on clicks, like your competitors will be doing within these markets.  Greg is an excellent marketer, and an all-around great guy who carries a reputation of having a lot of integrity, which is another reason why it’s an honor to have him as a guest today.  Greg, welcome to the show…

Derek DoepkerWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  If you are an author, especially an eBook author or a Kindle book author, you should be excited because today’s special guest is Derek Doepker.  He has a strategy to share about how you can sell more of your books, for full price, on auto-pilot.  Derek is a #1 bestselling author himself, of several books, including one titled Why Authors Fail.  He also leads hands-on training workshops, courses, and retreats.  Basically, they are there to teach authors how to turn their passion for writing into a sustainable business.  You can find out more about Derek by visiting EbookBestsellerSecrets.com.  Welcome to the show, Derek…

Promise: How to Sell More Books without Constant Marketing and Promotion

The promise today is: [bctt tweet="I’m going to show you how you can sell more books on auto-pilot without constant marketing and promotion" via="no"] First of all, obviously, if you have books in your business, and you want to generate more royalties, I’ve seen a significant increase in royalties by the scope of several thousand dollars in additional royalties with what I’m going to share with you today.  Now, even beginner authors have doubled, tripled, quadrupled their royalty income every single month by putting into practice what we’re going to be talking about.  So, in terms of bottom line results, we’re talking not just small increases, but significant increases in royalties, exposure, and of course, all of the other things that does for your brand.

One of the best parts is that once you get this set up and going, and in some cases it just takes a few hours to put this system in place, it becomes almost hands free.  Like, you let the system do its thing.  I go on vacation, I travel, or whatever, and it’s running in the background.  So we’re talking about significant increases in sales, without a huge time commitment, and that frees you up to do more things that you love.

Knowles.  He is a managing editor and cultural correspondent at The Daily Wire and a recent Yale graduate.  In addition to that, he’s also a fine actor, but right now, he’s best noted as the author of Reasons to Vote for Democrats:  A Comprehensive Guide.  This book became a bestseller on Amazon, and not just a bestseller in one certain category, but the bestseller over all the books on Amazon.  If you didn’t know, this is actually a gag book, filled with almost no content until you reach an extensive bibliography at the end.

Coming Up With the Idea for This Book

[bctt tweet="I wish there was some elaborate story about how I was going to market this thing & that I knew it was going to #1" via="no"] That really, wasn’t it.  I thought it would be a funny gag.  I was just sitting on the couch with my fiancé, and I said, “You know, there really ought to be…”  And, by the way, this is an old gag.  This gag has been around since at least 1880, which is when the Republican ticket of Chester Arthur and James Garfield published a blank book of their political opponent’s statesmanship and political achievements.  Again, that was also republicans trolling democrats with this same gag.

James NowlinWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Today we have a presentation that may, very well change your life.  James Nowlin is the special guests for this episode, and he is “the real deal,” in every respect.  He was a millionaire businessman long before he ever wrote his book, The Purposeful Millionaire, and even before he got paid to do any Keynote speeches.  At the age of 26 he was a young, first generation millennial success story.  He even walked away from a 6-figure law practice as a corporate attorney to start his own business. At the time, little did he know that the launch of his executive consulting firm, called Excel Global Partners, would coincide with one of the worst economic downturns in generations, which was The Great Recession.  Throughout the formative years of his business, James became tougher, wiser, and stronger, growing the company to become a great success.  That’s in spite of those daunting odds.  James shares the story of overcoming these odds in his book.  In this podcast, he’ll be chatting about how to go about getting your head on straight.  Please welcome James to the show…

Promise: Change Your Mindset

Thanks for having me on the show, first and foremost.  You should pay attention to this broadcast because you can be more, achieve more, and live more than you have ever imagined if you can get this one thing right in your life, and that’s your mindset.  That’s the 2-pound nugget on top of your head that really drives all of the success in your life.  For me, I had to change my mindset, in order to achieve at higher levels. [bctt tweet="My #1 hack is to get the heck out of bed in the morning." username="danielhall"] Having gone through a near-death accident at the age of 31… I had achieved really high levels of success.  I had the flashy car, I had the flashy friends, and I was traveling around the world, doing what I wanted to do, making as much money as I wanted to.  But, I was not achieving at my full potential.  That’s what I wanted to talk about today.  It’s all about getting that mindset in the right place, with the right disciplines and the right habits, on a daily basis, in order to achieve one’s maximum possible life.

Promise: DIY Framework for Building Your Brand

What I promise people today is that in the next 20-25 minutes, we are going through the “branding is sex” methodology that’s covered in my book, Branding is Sex: Get Your Customer Laid and Sell the Hell Out of Anything.  We’re going to go through that, and I’m going to give everybody a pretty easy and practical DIY framework for building the strategic underpinnings of your brand.

So, a lot of people think of a brand as the visual representation, or how a brand actually articulates itself in the marketplace, such as how it shows up, like what color it is, what kind of logo it uses, and what kind of personality it uses.  A brand is so much more than that, and before we go on and I explain how to do it, you have to buy into the idea that: [bctt tweet="A brand is a strategic relationship that you have with your customers. " username="danielhall"] This is true whether you are a small business owner or you work for one of those big corporations, like those mentioned before.  Even if you are an individual publisher, content creator, or a writer, and also if you are just trying to market yourself to find a job, this is true for you as well.  You are a brand, whether you like it or not.

Matt MillerWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  This episode is meant to be a very special treat for you.  It’s something a bit different, but worth considering.  Today’s special guest is Matt Miller, who is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.  He was an air force pilot for nine years.  Post military, Matt worked in both medical and advertising fields, as a top performer.  His long-term desire was to start a business, probably a lot like you, and to build a lifestyle based on freedom and choice. During a conversation with a good friend, that actually led him into a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt’s franchising company to the cutting edge of both vending and school fundraising industries.  Starting with just a teeny-tiny seed of $100, he has built a “school spirit” vending machine company into a multi-million dollar vending business.

Promise: How to Build a Profitable Secondary Income Stream by Using Vending Machines

Thanks, first off, for having me on.  I really appreciate being here.  The big promise is: [bctt tweet="I want to show you how you can build a very profitable secondary income stream using vending machines as the vehicle" via="no"] Pat Flynn is a good friend of mine, and this started with a blog a few years ago which talked about creating information products online.  My challenge was, I have a very, very simple mindset, and the whole internet thing still just blows my mind, when I try to think about it.

 I needed to do something that would allow me to make money immediately, not on down the road.  So, I had a good buddy at church who mentioned gum ball machines, and I got to thinking about it, and I was like, “You know what?  It’s going to take a lot of gum balls for me to get where I want to go financially,” but those gum balls have over a 1,000% markup, so the margins are huge, and the machines do all the selling while you’re not there.  So, I started, literally, with a $36 used gum ball machine from a guy that I found on Ebay, across Houston, where we lived at the time.  That’s where and how I started this business.

I wrote a short eBook several years ago, called Live Your Dreams: The Top 10 Reasons Why You Need to Own a Vending Business.  It just shares a little bit of insight that most professionals have never even thought of in relation to vending.  We’ve set up a landing page specifically for you.  You can go to SSVBusiness.com/fastresults and download that for free.  At a minimum, you’ll learn a little more about just general vending.  If you want to talk about the franchise, we can do that too.  I hope, if nothing else, this gets you thinking about some other avenues that have been in front of all of us, all of our lives, but many of us, for whatever reason, have never considered.  This has changed my life and that of many of the other people that I work with today.

Christopher LochheadWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Christopher Lochhead is today’s special guest.  He’s the co-author of HarperCollins’ instant classic called Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers, and Innovators Create and Dominate Markets.  He’s also the co-host of the Legends and Losers podcast.  On top of all of that, Christopher is a former three-time, public company CMO and entrepreneur.  As a matter of fact, Fast Company Magazine calls him, “The Human Exclamation Point”. The Marketing Journal also says that he is one of the best minds in marketing, and The Economist call him, “off-putting to some”.  At 18, he got thrown out of school, and with no other options, he started a company.  He wanted to add value to society, and now he’s been in business for over 30 years, even though he’s mostly retired these days.  He can quote most of The Big Lebowski, but he can’t even remember his wife’s telephone number.  However, he is an excellent speaker and a surf and ski bum, as well as a proud advisor to the non-profit 1 Life Fully Lived. [bctt tweet="The first thing I’d share is, if you are dyslexic, get a great coach." username="danielhall"]

Promise: Even if You are Dyslexic, You Can Write a Bestselling Book

Today we’re going to talk about how even a dyslexic can write a bestselling book. Well, listen, if you have something to contribute to the world, as we all know, books are transformative.  I started early, at 18, with no money, no education, and no experience, of course.  It was just me and my buddy, Jack.  When you start like that, you only have a couple of ways of learning.  That’s learning by doing, learning by seeking out mentors, and coaches, and friends that can help along the way, and then there’s learning by reading.

Reading was so hard for me, and still is, frankly.  There were a handful of books that I read between the ages of 18 and 25, or 26, and had those authors not written those books, you and I wouldn’t be having this conversation.  A few years back, some friends and family started to tell me and my co-authors, “Hey, you guys should really write some of this stuff down.”  We got convinced that we had something to contribute, so we decided to do the book, and that’s really how it all happened.

Thanks for having me on.  I’m excited to chat about this.  I just wanted to talk about working with a remote team, so hopefully, you can get some of the best talent out there and be the most successful.

The reason why we do it is to find the best talent out there.  Above all, I’m trying to find, for us, the best personalities and the right people, who actually have the drive to do what they are looking for, and to make everyone who is working with me, and our company, happy too. Remote working helps to solve all of that. [bctt tweet="The best people in the world aren’t within 25 miles of you. The best people are spread out everywhere." via="no"] The best people have the luxury to define where they are going to be working and what they are going to be doing.  And, we find more and more that they are using that power to go to companies that give them that flexibility, and honor them as a person, and don’t require them to do an hour commute each way.

Dr. Jonah BergerWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  This is an extra special episode because today’s special guest is world famous researcher, New York Times bestselling author, and university professor Dr. Jonah Berger.  You’re about to learn how to put campaigns together, which have the propensity to be contagious and even go viral.

Dr. Berger is a marketing professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and author of the bestselling book, Contagious: Why Things Catch On.  Berger has spent over 15 years studying how social influence works, and how it drives products and ideas.  In addition to writing his book, he has published dozens of articles in top-tier academic journals and has consulted a variety of Fortune 500 companies.  He has also been published in popular outlets like the New York Times and Harvard Business Review.

“Contagious”

We’ve all seen products and ideas catch on, services and the like, whether it’s a product in the grocery store (Greek yogurt became popular a few years ago), whether it’s an app like Uber or Snapchat, or whether it is a service, like B2B marketing, for example.  We’ve all seen examples of things which came out of nowhere and became extremely popular, and the question is “Why?”  What was it about these things that made them popular? It turns out that it’s not just about advertising or having a big advertising budget, or even, necessarily, having the best product or service out there.  It’s really about the power of word-of-mouth.  [bctt tweet="It turns out that word-of-mouth is ten times as effective as traditional advertising." username="danielhall"]

  • How contagious marketing works
  • Getting people to talk about your product
  • STEPPS - Social Currency, Triggers, Emotion, Public, Practical Value, Stories

I have a really nice gift for folks, and you can access it at http://RealFastResults.com/Fran.  I did a live training called “The $100,000 You Left on the Table this Year”.  It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’ve been, I guarantee you’ve left at least $100,000 on the table this year.  That training is about having multiple streams of income, but also organized streams of income, meaning that there’s a synergy between your publishing, your speaking, and your training. So, it’s a follow-up to this, but I go into greater detail about how I get publishing deals, why people ask me to come and speak, and most importantly, you’ll hear a business model that’s very consistent, which is not to spend money until you have to.  Be profitable from the beginning, and really focus on the things that you are passionate about, have experience in, or are an expert in.  You should add up the money throughout the course of the training.  It’s like an hour and a half long, or somethi ng like that.  You’ll hear the money that you’re leaving on the table.  There are sounds of change and big bundles of money falling as you go through.

Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Gina Henry is today’s special guest.  She is an expert when it comes to being able to travel and make money at the same time.  In fact, when this episode was recorded, she was in Austin, Texas, traveling and visiting friends, but at the same time, she taught a group about how to travel and make money.  So, Gina had actually been traveling and making money herself.

Promise: How to Travel for Free

Well, I think the importance of travel… I know in my life, and [that of] many of our listeners and viewers, it’s stimulating.  You’re learning, you’re seeing things differently, you’re meeting new people, you’re exposed to new cultures, even if you are here in the U.S. traveling.  There’s a stimulation, I think, and I get so much out of it.  It helps me with my writing, my speaking, my business ideas, and my brainstorming.  It gets you out of a rut.

[bctt tweet="When we get too much routine in life and get sidetracked, we just need to get our focus back. For me, travel is what does it." via="no"] You can not only use your travel for inspiration, but also, at the same time, maybe work on the road.  That can make part of your trip a business trip, and a possible tax reduction (part of it). But, the whole idea is that you’re out there, getting inspiration, and you’re coming up with new ideas.  Maybe you’ll have time to focus on those ideas, and maybe without some of the distractions that you may have at home.

Promise: How to Take Advantage on Popular Trends

Thank you so much for having me, and I want to say a big “Hello” to everyone out there.  The reason why we are here today is that I’m really excited to share how you can take advantage of some very popular trends and also emerging technology.  This emerging technology is going to allow you to make money and grow your business in ways that you were never able to do before.  By getting into the forefront of this trend, where people are spending millions, billions, and even almost trillions of dollars within these industries, you are going to be able to grow your business. [bctt tweet="What I’m talking about is card deck publishing." username="danielhall"] What’s really exciting about card deck publishing is that it is at the crossroads of two trends.  First of all, there’s eCommerce.  I’ve been doing some research recently on eCommerce, and eCommerce is an “over-a-trillion dollar business” now.  It’s going to continue to grow even more as we get into 2018-2010.  That has crossroads with self-publishing, and self-publishing is a multi-million dollar business, and it’s getting close to becoming a billion dollar business.  Card deck publishing is really a hybrid, or a marriage, between the two of these.

Promise: How to Turn Your Media Interviews into a Lead Generating Tool

My big promise is that, whatever podcast you’ve been on, blog post, media interview, no matter what type of media outlet… I’m going to teach you how to turn every single one of those into a lead generating, sales generating tool in your business that’s fully automated, that you never have to touch once you hit play. Look at everyday people.  If you look at people that have been on the Oprah show, or any kind of international TV, Good Morning America, they get their chance in the spotlight, and then they’re gone.  They disappear.  Then, their businesses fail.  They don’t leverage it.

They get that one big hit, and they become that “one hit wonder”.  They’ve got that one hit that they will always remember, and maybe their audience will always remember, but their new audience won’t.  They just disappear off the face of the earth.  That’s what we don’t want to happen, but it happens all too often.  We don’t want that as entrepreneurs.

Daniel HallWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results Podcast. I am happy you are here. I want to jump into a question I get all of the time from authors and that is: How do you title your book for maximum readership? Just like the cover of your book, the title of your book is equally important.

Promise: 4 Areas for Maximum Readership

I am going to discuss four primary areas of consideration when titling your book for maximum readership. I have seen so many authors just come up with what they think is a good title without considering the nomenclature used by the marketplace to describe what they are writing about.

Promise: How to Qualify for a Wikipedia Page

Thank you.  I’m honored to be here.  Our big, bold promise today is that if you get a Wikipedia page, it’s going to greatly enhance your reputation and your credibility, as perceived by others.  So, it’s going to make you look good, and it gives you more credibility in the world.  Definitely, more “street cred”.

We’re going to talk about how to qualify to get one of these pages.  It’s the kind of thing that not everyone can have.  [bctt tweet="It takes some serious qualifications to be able to get a Wikipedia page, and most people don’t qualify." via="no"]That’s why getting a Wikipedia page is so prestigious. Most people know that most people don’t qualify to get a Wikipedia page.  So, when someone is doing a search for you, your organization, your product, your service, your book, they are going to see it.  Usually, it’s one of the top items in search results. People see that you have a Wikipedia page, and it’s like, “Oh!”  It just adds a real layer of credibility.  I’m sure each of the members of this audience have experienced this when they were looking for someone or something and find that there’s a Wikipedia page.  It causes a person’s perception of something to go up another notch.

Promise: How to Create a "One Sheet"

What we’re going to talk about today is how to get an author in front of whoever they are trying to get in front of.  So, my promise is to show you how to create a “one sheet” that’s slick, clicks, and ticks.  This could be an author one sheet, a book one sheet, an expertise one sheet, a speaker one sheet, or any kind of one sheet that you can slap onto your website or print out and take anywhere in order to extend, expand, promote your book, your speaking, yourself, or whatever it may be that you’re trying to get out to the world. [bctt tweet="A 'one sheet' is a one-page document that you use to address whatever pain your target market has." via="no"] You will deliver a solution to this problem, whether that’s with your service, with your book, or with your expertise.

Nina AmirWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results!  Today’s special guest is writer, author, and book marketer extraordinaire, Nina Amir.  She is known as the “Inspiration to Creation Coach”, and she is also a book, blog, and author coach as well as the creator of the proprietary author training curriculum for writers and other coaches.  Nina also founded the National Non-Fiction Writing month and Non-Fiction Writers University.  Additionally, she is one of only 300 elite certified, high-performance coaches working around the world, and she is the only one specifically working with writers.  Please welcome Nina to the show…

Promise: How to Find Your Passion and Be Inspired

First, thank you for having me on the show.  It’s an honor.  The reason you should listen today is because people need to get inspired.  If you want to create anything, you need to be inspired, and again, I am known as the “Inspiration to Creation Coach”.  I am passionate about helping people create what they want in their life, whether that’s a book, or a blog, or a business, or a new relationship, or more productivity.  It doesn’t really matter to me what they want to create, but I think that we all have this desire to create something. I think it’s important to be inspired because the way that you achieve what I call, “inspired results,” is to take inspired action.  You have to have that purpose and passion, combined, to actually get inspired to take some action.  If you don’t take action, you won’t get the results.

What I do is I try to work with people to find their passion, whatever it is that they are passionate about.  If we have to discover that, then we will.  We combine that with our purpose.  I think that everyone has a purpose.  The overriding purpose, I think, is really to be authentic and connected to whatever you think. Let that flow through so that we are just out best selves.  I think that’s, sort of, the overriding purpose that we have in our lifetime.

Connecting with Nina

You can find me at NinaAmir.com, and I’m everywhere in social media, just by Nina Amir.  So it’s pretty easy to find me.  I work one-on-one with people going through the certified high-performance coaching curriculum to help them to level up.  You know, we talk about peak performance, which is, you get into that moment of flow and then it’s gone.  It’s like climbing to the summit of a mountain, and then sliding all of the way back down and having to climb back up. High performance is like climbing to the summit, and seeing the next one, and climbing up to that.  It’s about leveling up all of the time, in every area of our life.  As we go through the pillars, it affects us in so many ways.  So, whether you are writing or creating something else, it doesn’t really matter, high performance is going to help. I do work with people one-on-one, but I also have a high-performance writer group coaching program.  That’s where I bring in 10 or 15 people at a time, and we go through the same curriculum. It’s all about these pillars that we talked about.  The five pillars of high performance.  We go through those, and it’s amazing, the results that people get from it.  I put that in place so that it would be a little more affordable for people to work with me.  You can check this out at RealFastResults.com/hpw.
