The School of Self-Mastery: Business, Money, Life

The School of Self-Mastery podcast is all about business, money and life. I talk with guests who have created a RICH life for themselves, not because they’re bathing in money, (although they may be doing that too) but because they’ve defined and created success on their own terms, through their own personal successful habits. Habits are the root of simplifying your success I also appear solo two days a week to dive deeper into self-mastery topics and give actionable takeaways you can start applying today.

We all know it's important to exercise.

The CDC recommends adults get two and a half hours of moderately intense activity every week. Nearly 80% of adults don't meet these basic fitness goals.

We know exercise is good for our health, but how can it also be essential to our business?

1. It lifts your mood.

2. It reduces stress.

3. It boosts your confidence.

4. It helps you sleep.

6 tips to fast track your success in 2016 - take these serious and the results will follow.

1. Let your vision, commitment, & drive guide you NOT your current circumstances or limitations or excuses.

2. To get energy you must do the work, and follow through on your word. When you hustle and get things done you create energy within to take even more action.

3. ALWAYS celebrate weekly progress over perfection. Being a perfectionist will cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Remember you want experiments, not perfection.

4. Make sure you are ONLY associating with those who hold you accountable, raise your standards, and challenge you to think bigger...NOT those people who let you off the hook. 

5. Get rid of ALL negativity in your life. Toxic people love company and they have a problem for every solution. You must purposely surround yourself w/ top-notchthinkers.

6. Start your days feeling resourceful, accomplished and confident - Define your highest value activity (MIM - most important mission) and spend the first 90 minutes doing that and NOTHING else. - use your success sheet every morning & evening. 

Habits will always trump inspiration. Inspiration is needed to create consistent action, but your habits are ultimately going to define your success or failure.

Which one of these will make the BIGGEST impact on your success and results this week and this year if you really focused on it?

Mariah Coz has been building businesses since 2008. After being in a touring punk band for a few years, she decided she wanted income in between tours and got started online. She first started out on Etsy selling vintage clothes and sunglasses that she would find at thrift stores for a profit. Then she purchased, renovated, and flipped vintage camper trailers for a few years. Mariah became a public speaker, developed a proprietary curriculum for high school girls that she toured around the country, and even did freelance museum curation.

Then, after burning out on selling physical products on Etsy and her crazy speaking/teaching travel schedule, she let go of my profitable, but crazy businesses to pursue "online courses" and get REAL freedom back. Mariah set a goal to replace her Etsy and speaking income with leveraged, passive online courses. 30 days later, Mariah had made $10k selling a course about living in a vintage camper. That was 4 years ago!

It changed everything and set her on the path she is on today - helping people turn their weird passions, hobbies and unique skills into leveraged digital products. Now, Mariah runs Femtrepreneur, a 7-figure business that helps badass young women start their own online course businesses so they can lead autonomous, independent lives!

In this episode, Mariah is sharing some of her best tips for getting recognized and building successful and profitable courses in your niche industry, sharing why she loves super small niches for course building, and how you can get started today with your next big idea.

This year I attended an event in Vegas that was the culmination of a program I worked through during Q1 of this year called 90 Day Year, with Todd Herman.

It was an epic weekend to say the least where I connected with some incredible humans and entrepreneurs who are all doing amazing and world changing things.

I took over 40 pages of notes…not even kidding. And I want to share some of those knowledge bombs and insights with you through the podcast and in my FREE community

In this episode I share some of my biggest takeaways from keynote speaker, Brian Smith, founder of UGG. He spoke about birthing a business and how we cannot give birth to an adult!

Why do we try to do this all the time? I’ll walk you through what this all really means for you in this episode.

He has 5 big lessons in his talk and this is just one of them, so imagine how much else I have to share with you over the next few months about this event.

Most business owners know that in order to be successful, they’ve got to set goals.  But despite this, many business owners don’t actually do it.

Of the business owners that do set them, just like New Year’s resolutions, most don’t follow through.

There’s a whole load of reasons why you don’t achieve your goals, typically they are excuses.

When you set big goals, many people feel a sense of overwhelm. Rather like standing at the bottom of a huge mountain, the size of the goal before you, just like the mountain, appears to be enormous.

Instead, let’s use 90 day goals to eat the elephant one bite at a time.

If you break a task or goal into smaller chunks, it’s a lot easier to achieve.

Consequently, the most successful way for you to achieve a big goal is rather than creating a plan to tackle your goals for the year, is instead to focus on your goals for the next 90 days.

So, having a goal for the year is great, but being really clear what you’re going to achieve in the next 90 days towards that big goal, makes it much more likely that you’ll achieve it.

What’s more, having a smaller goal over a shorter period makes it much easier to get everybody to move forward at the same time.

Why 90 Day Goals Are Better Than Year Long Ones:

– 90 Day’s isn’t too long

– 90 Day’s isn’t too short either

– Parkinsons Law – work expands to fill the time available for its completion means that if you give yourself a week to complete a two hour task.

– Helps motivate you – you’re more likely to stay motivated when you have WINS

– You can reset them quickly

– You aren’t tempted to spread yourself too thinly by trying to achieve too much

Tips To Achieve Your 90 Day Goals:

1. Write them down – 42% more likely to achieve them

2. Keep them visible

You might be thinking you're GREAT at multi-tasking! It's how I work best you tell yourself! 

Heck you pride yourself on it and have even used it as a strength on a job application in the past...but what if it was all a LIE?! 

What if I told you you were losing up to 75% of your day to multi-tasking? Is that enough of a loss to get you to listen?

If you’re working on 5 different projects at one time -- you’re losing up to 75% of your time to context switching.

If I have 8 hours in my day...only 2 hours is actual productive work.

You can be smart and competent and still very unproductive.

Exhausting, frustrating.
Think about all that extra time you could be saving. All those results you're missing out on...
It doesn't have to be this way! 
You’re not bad at what you do, you’re just working inside of a broken model. You CAN fix that model, and I’m going to send you over to Todd Herman’s free video series to get started.
