How to Create a Successful Business with Joel Therien
This week at Get Live Training, Don Legere spoke on ‘Rising to the Top’ which fit perfectly with our Guest Speaker, Joel Therien. The gentlemen ruled the house today and they did a magnificent job! A hungry group of listeners paid close attention as Joel talked about the 9 things you need to do to create success in your business, be it online or offline. I took quite a few notes myself, here is a summary with the replay to follow.
#1. Have a Backup Plan
It’s important to have a back up plan while you learn to build your business online. That may mean keeping a job while you learn to create income on the Internet or it may mean investing your savings, etc. Treat your business like a business and it will treat you well.
#2. Get out of your comfort zone
Nothing happens inside your comfort zone and as Joel so eloquently said “the only way to overcome any fear is to fully realize that fear itself”. You gotta face it head on – if, that is, you WANT to face that fear. Not all fears need to be faced!
#3. Become a good listener
It is really important to listen to people and learn their ‘Pain points’. We need to remember we have one mouth and two ears so listen twice as much as you speak 😉 Ask lots of questions directed to find their “pain points” so you can offer solutions.
#4. You are who you associate with
Take a look around at the people who you hang around with most. How much do they earn in a year? Look at the 5 people you associate with most, add up their “annual incomes” and divide by 5 and you will be pretty close to what you are earning. Is it were you want to be? No? It may be time to hang out with different people 🙂
#5. Every buying decision is based on a comparison
People are always comparing. Compare your products to the pain points of your prospect. Does your product help ease that pain better than product B? Validate your prospect – let them know you understand their needs and let them know you are listening!
#6. Never give up
Do we really need to say more here? “Just because something is not working does not mean it does not work”. You need massive PASSION followed by immediate ACTION combined with continuous EDUCATION.
#7. Track anything of significance
If you aren’t tracking what you are doing how do you know that what you are doing is working? Tracking is one area many marketers neglect and when you learn to track what you are doing, you will be able to make small changes that will affect big results. Joel agreed to come back and do another call for us with a focus on Tracking and the things you need to track.
#8. Edify others
Strengthen and encourage the people you talk to. “Give credit where credit is due”. Find the good in others. Do what you can to make others FEEL GOOD 🙂
#9. Keep things simple
This is the motto at Contact List Builder, keep it simple and is definitely a critical piece to your online success. Keep your unique selling proposition simple. Know what you do and be able to share that with others. Think about it … what exactly is it that you do?
I offer simple solutions for Internet Marketers to build a list, create a personal brand and make money online. What do you do?
Thank you to Joel Therien
I’ve been following Joel for more than 10 years and worked closely with him since 2003 when we adopted the Hot Conference technology into our programs. I’ve come to ‘know, like and trust’ Joel over the years. His focus has always been to fill that need for Internet Marketers, recognizing that other companies simply are NOT sensitive to our needs.
I want to extend a special thank you to my friend and ‘Business Partner’, Joel Therien. We are excited to welcome him back to teach our group all about specific website tracking and how to read your stats! Watch this site for updates. Subscribe to our list to stay up to date with our Live Events.
