Gavin ZuchlinskiWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Today, you’re going to learn about building a team because, let’s face it, you’re only one person, and you can’t pull the plow forever.  You are going to need help, and it’s advised that you look into building a team sooner, rather than later.  The special guest in this episode is Gavin Zuchlinski, who is the founder of Acuity Scheduling.  This service is currently one of slickest ways to automate your business and manage appointments online. Gavin is a self-professed tech geek and espresso maniac.  He also wholeheartedly believes that business should be fun, as does the team at Real Fast Results!  Otherwise, why do it?  Welcome to the show Gavin!

Promise: Working Successfully with a Remote Team

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"]  

Learn

  • How contagious marketing works
  • Getting people to talk about your product
  • STEPPS - Social Currency, Triggers, Emotion, Public, Practical Value, Stories
  • How to apply "STEPPS" to what you are promoting
  • When it comes to writing a book or creating content in some way, shape, or form, is how can you make your audience feel like an insider?
  • Think for a moment about the cover of your book 
  • Active colors
  • Finding the right triggers for a product
  • Practical value
  • Meeting the needs of your audience

Promise: Leverage Your Knowledge through Publishing, Speaking and Training

Well, it’s going to be fun for a lot of reasons, but the main reason that you should stick around is that if you have any amount of knowledge in that head, I’m going to be sharing with you how to really leverage that through the power of publishing, speaking, and training.  And don’t worry, if you’ve not done any of those three things, or if you’ve done all of those three things, I’m going to be sharing some insights to help you explode those areas so that you can spend more time with your family, if you want to, or travel, or give to the things that matter to you.  That’s exactly what I have been able to do, literally through the power of those three things.

Connecting with Fran

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.
