We’re Live. Guys start the conversation debating all the processes that they have been gone through (and the population) due to the lockdown, quarantine, etc. There’s a lot of contradiction with what the government is doing and the constitution, but the bottom line is basically the only way to control a majority of people that are not rational.

 

Another subject comes and it’s that if the virus itself would be 10 times more deadly what would be the reaction of the people? Does it have to be that scary for people to take a pandemic situation seriously?

 

Thought of the week:

 

Mani - “Math is a F*cker, People don’t understand math then we cannot expect people to understand everything.”

We’re Live. John and Mani start the conversation reviewing a strategy that Jhon has been applying to Bulldog Mindset recently, the thing is, he’s looking for high-quality clients only which is a niche that can be tricky. He has been trying different things but they have not been working as expected. 

 

Mani gives really specific advice on what to try. One of the most important things when looking for this kind of client is that the filter has to be bulletproof, he really doesn’t want a bunch of people that are just not going add anything to the membership area.

 

Basic idea is that he wants people to see the immense value that the group has.

Jan 21, 2020

We’re Live. Chuck starts the conversation with Mani, talking about his whole process of sale through email marketing, numbers, conversion rates, etc. He’s doing good and does a great job at it, but it’s the more tiresome area of the business, really pursuing those sales. Chuck Makes it clear that he’s tired of it, Mani tells him that’s the way to get results, and it does work.

Mani gives some advice, this is something that can be outsourced but it’s always better to take this for yourself, there’s complete control of the sales. It can be tiresome, yeah but the rewards are always big.

Thought of the week

Chuck - “I’m so tired of sales man!”

Jan 14, 2020


We’re Live. John starts the conversation about a person that has worked with him recently and marks a recurrent trend, they only go to John when they want to make money otherwise, he’s not on the radar.

Most of the “Liberal” People have their ideals always in front until they start a business, once you got the need to start making money, all the political thinking and ideals just gets out of the picture, it doesn’t help at all and that’s the harsh truth.

Thought of the week:

Chuck - “Well, i hate you until i need you too so..”

Jan 7, 2020

We’re Live. Great Sales Plans to start 2020 for Chuck, has 3 major goals to reach. Not impossible ones, but difficult to achieve. Big numbers to reach and one of the things that Chuck is doing is documenting his whole process on Sales, There’s a possibility that in the future somebody else could take care of this area of the business. This will ease the transition process and save a lot of time.

Putting on sales the Podcast is one of the plans, Mani gives great advice to Chuck on this. He needs to take up all the juice he can get from each of the podcasts.

Lots to do for 2020, it’s just a matter of organizing and get everything done.

Thoughts of the week

Mani – “You need to squeeze every sale possible from each of the podcasts”
