For sales pros and business owners in growth mode.
Can you 10X your results with just a few changes in your approach?
In fact, it’s exactly what I did.
I mastered the Tim Ferris or Perry Marshall 80/20 attitude: create better productivity and efficiency with time and resources.
So let’s discuss some key skills to for better business networking.
But first, let’s take a few steps back…
How often is your mind at peace?
Do you ever sit still?
Must you always thumb through your phone to catch up on the latest news?
We live in a world that is increasingly more distracted and more busy. We have unlimited opportunities to remain in a busy state. But the problem is, if left without controls, our mental and emotional strength weakens.
But no worries … This change is happening across the board, so you don’t have to worry. Your decaying intellect is on par with the rest of society!
Seriously though, there is a lesson here.
I am reminded of a success quote that says: “If you want to know how to be successful, find out what everyone else is doing, then do the opposite!“
I think there is truth to that.
For years I’ve thought of recording some of the amazing phone conversations I occasionally have with friends, coaches and mentors.
Last week I made this a reality.
Meet my friend Blaine Oelkers.
Blaine Oelkers is a very successful entrepreneur and unique individual.
He is the leader of a mastermind group that I’m apart of and he’s launching a new program to help others’ experience a well run mastermind.
I asked him if I could pick his brain as a way to better understand how he thinks and works – as well as promote his new program.
Graciously, he said yes.

Many of us have heard of the ultimate productivity principle, the Pareto Rule.
▶︎ But how do you actually apply it?
Re: the Pareto Principle?
Originally applied to economics, the Pareto Principle stated 80% of the wealth of a nation was owned by 20% of it’s people.
For the lateral thinker, this principle finds use in all type of matters. For example, one could say, 80% of your money comes from 20% of your clients. Or maybe 20% of your weekly effort yields 80% of your most important results.
According to famed Internet Marketer, Perry Marshall, author of 80/20 Sales and Marketing, one understanding of Pareto, is seeing it as universal inequality.
Things will never be equal.

The following is message could be hazardous to your limiting beliefs[/highlight].
When I first started in business I was still in college. Things began with little pressure because my responsibilities were minimal.
Before your day begins and you’re lost in activities.
Define what success IS today.
For every significant area you want to see progress in – know for yourself, when you hit your quota and then rest until tomorrow.
Have you ever received the advice or heard the phrase, “use failures as stepping stones to reach higher heights?”
