James Schramko is known as one of the best business trainers out there in the world today. He came on the show last year and is back to share what he has been up to over the past year. On the show, we talk about a variety of things from his new book, to productivity, to the importance of building a location independent business. What I really enjoy talking to James about is tribe building. James is an expert tribe builder. He has built top sales teams for BMW and Mercedes in the past, and now he builds his own entrepreneur tribes with some very high-caliber people being involved. I love this guy and I love getting an hour of his time. Make sure you check out this episode!

Hey listeners, welcome back to the show and today we have an exciting episode for you!  Matt Kelly joins us from sunny Barcelona to chat about the past few years of his life. Matt literally got kicked out of his university for not showing up.  He was down on his life and depressed. People thought he was selling drugs and going to end up a failure. A few years later he has his eCommerce business pulling around $650,000 per month and he’s working hard to his $1,000,000 per month.  

Today’s episode is great because Matt really opens up about the details and even products in his business. He shares about what is working with Facebook advertising and how he predicts if an ad will be successful or not. Currently, he is spending around $13,000 per day on advertising and he talks about how he got to that level and how he sustains it.

Do you know that the majority of CEOs don’t have an assistant? The main reason, they don’t know how to properly train one and they would rather be doing other things. Finding a great assistant isn’t easy, but today’s guest explains how incredibly powerful it is to get a great assistant.

 

Tim Francis joins us today, and Tim is the founder of GreatAssistant.com. His agency has placed over 150 top-rate assistants and he explains how most entrepreneurs are missing out on massive opportunities because they don’t have an assistant.  I really enjoyed this episode because Tim dives deep and shares about hiring and training assistants, and how his business has skyrocketed because he has such an incredible assistant.

 

“The #1 reason most CEOs don’t have an assistant based on a survey we did is, they don’t know how to trust an assistant and I they don’t know how to let go of control.” Tim Francis
