Building Authority: Book vs Podcast



I just got a question from a client called Steve, who said, “Thinking about starting a podcast and also considering writing a book, what do you think is the best tactic for building authority and growing my list?”

How to Stop Your Leads from Slipping Through the Cracks



 

I’ve got a question here from Jason. He’s asking about how to make sure that the leads that he’s generating don’t slip through the cracks.

Lead Magnets: Webinar E-Book vs Short PDF

How to Increase Engagement in Your Facebook Group



 

One of my clients has his own private Facebook group. He has about 30 people in it. His Facebook group is getting quiet and he’s asking for tips and tricks on how to get his engagement up.

Why You Need to Be One Step Ahead



 

I want to tell you a story of something that happened to me in Brazil 25 years ago that taught me a ton as I was getting started as a coach.

I went there chasing this girl and the plan was to live with her together forever.

The 2 Faces You Should Show in Your Marketing



 

I was out for dinner in Hollywood with a mate of mine called JVD — Jeffrey Van Dyke. Legend. Best ‘find your niche’ guy I’ve ever met.

Just finished up a Hotseat with a client…

One of my favorite webinars to do every single month in Black Belt is where I take a client who’s doing some amazing work and we interview them to find out what they’ve been doing.
