Naming your "thing" is a bigger deal than you might think. A good program/business/offer name can be everything.

Well sort of. It’s an important piece of the puzzle that helps people understand what you do and how you can help them.

Let’s face it though, naming your program (or product) is hard. Communicating the essence of your program or business in just a few words is part science, part art.

Your name needs to evoke emotion and make a promise about their results.

For example, Corporate to Called {purpose + profits group coaching program} was the name of one of my courses. One that I sold 15 spots @ a $997 price point, when I had a list of less than 200 people.

Now, I’m definitely not saying this was the best name ever, I know you can do better than me {I didn’t understand the importance at the time and have named things poorly since}!  

But, people knew exactly who it was for and what results they were going to get {corporate peeps looking to go out on their own and make money via their purpose}.

Here’s a few things to get you started:

  • it should echo what your clients want
  • it should be short.
  • it should be clear what it is
  • it should speak to the results/outcome

Your name needs umph.

Brainstorm at least 10 power words and their synonyms {use google} that are relevant to your offer --

Next, continue brainstorming emotional and results/outcome oriented words.

So, what are the results that your course/program provides?

List at least 10 words that describe the emotions & results/outcome of your program. {consider using verbs as well {use google to help}.

Put this baby together now.

What combinations from these can you create?

Mix & match the different options and cross out the ones that are not exciting and keep working with the ones that have potential!

Sit on them for a few days and say it out loud, really FEEL what it’s like to have a program with that name. Think about how you’d introduce it to strangers and if they’d understand what the heck that means.

You can also use: to get some additional ideas and even make sure you’re domain is available.

You can keep this list for future naming as well.

Make sure to download the cheatsheet here to get all 10 tips to sell out your program, even with a small list!

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?

Guy Spier is a Zurich-based investor and author of a book on investing entitled The Education of a Value Investor. He is well known for bidding US $650,100 with Mohnish Pabrai for a charity lunch with Warren Buffett in June 2007. In 2009, he was featured in "the Checklist Manifesto", by Atul Gawande regarding his use of checklists as part of his investment process.

Spier manages the Aquamarine Fund, an investment partnership inspired by, and styled after Warren Buffett's 1950s investment partnerships. He is also an occasional financial commentator in the media.

What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett? He becomes a real value investor. In this fascinating inside story, Guy Spier details his career from Harvard MBA to hedge fund manager. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder. 

Spier's journey is similar to the thousands that flock to Wall Street every year with their shiny new diplomas, aiming to be King of Wall Street. Yet what Guy realized just in the nick of time was that the King really lived 1,500 miles away in Omaha, Nebraska. Spier determinedly set out to create a new career in his own way. 

Along the way he learned some powerful lessons which include: why the right mentors and partners are critical to long term success on Wall Street; why a topnotch education can sometimes get in the way of your success; that real learning doesn't begin until you are on your own; and how the best lessons from Warren Buffett have less to do with investing and more to do with being true to yourself. 

Guy Spier shares the two ways the warren buffett made profound impacts on his life and in today's download you can get access to the exact questions you need to be asking yourself if you're looking for a top-notch mentor, plus example email messages of how to get connected to them.

It is also one of the highest rated books on Amazon with over 700 five-star reviews!

What’s even more incredible is that Hal actually died at age 20. He was hit head on by a drunk driver at 70 mph, broke 11 bones, died for 6 minutes, and spent 6 days in a coma only to wake up to face the news that he may never walk again… Well, not only did he walk, Hal went on to run a 52-mile ultra marathon, become a hall of fame business achiever, an international keynote speaker, one of the world’s top success coaches, he’s a hip-hop recording artist, has been featured in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, writes for, has appeared on radio and TV shows across the country, and the list just goes on and on. He’s also the host of one of the top personal development podcasts on iTunes, called “Achieve Your Goals with Hal Elrod.”

As the bestselling author of The Miracle Morning, I brought him on today to talk about how you can change any—or literally EVERY area of your life, by simply changing the way you wake up in the morning—even if you’ve never been a morning person.

By 23, he made his first 6 figure income, and 3 1/2 years later his earnings were over 1 million. He then took the same formula and applied it in another industry. Despite the challenge of lacking training or experience, he became the fastest manager to reach $1 million in annual sales in his company’s 60 + year history, but left his 6 figure income because he felt his magnitude of mission growing.

John Schnettgecke is the author of Pura Vida, A Thinker's Guide to Living—a best-selling personal development book for lost, stuck, or mixed-up Millennials. At age 25, John fell headfirst into an EPIC quarter-life crisis. He abruptly quit his job, fled the country, then fell off a motorcycle somewhere near the equator. Unsure what to do next, he started writing. He's now on a mission to encourage other young people to write their way to the life they want.

He's the poster child for all Millennials who have ever felt lost, stuck, or confused. John is the guy who read all the personal development books and listened to way too many podcasts, the guy who wanted to do everything, but managed to do nothing in the process. He spun his wheels and went nowhere. 

That is, until he began asking himself some really tough questions and answering them honestly. He believes that all young people have the power to unlock their true potential and purpose with nothing more than pen, paper, and 10 minutes of writing each day.

1. what you do

2. who you serve

Sales Funnel Masterclass

Two weeks we talked about the parts of a sales funnel and a bit about how they work -- you can find that episode here.

And in my Make More Sales - Sales Funnel Masterclass we're going to go even deeper on the HOW, but I need to press rewind and share with you the WHY behind setting up sales funnels in your business. 

Today I’m going to tell you 3 reasons WHY you need a funnel strategy in your business. Neither Sales NOR Funnel is a dirty word - but more on that on episode 109. 

Here are 3 reasons why you need a sales funnel strategy for your business:

1. Your “people” need you to lead them 

Regardless of if someone is just joining your list or someone has been around for a little while, people want you to lead them through a process that makes sense. And you BOTH want a process that gets them the best results - that's what a sales funnel does versus sending them random weekly emails that they have little interest in. A sales funnel allows you to get super specific with your topic and value you provide to that customer.

2. There's only so much time in a day.

24 hours to be exact, and I'd rather you not work for all 24 of them - but with an automated sales funnel in place, you CAN work nights and weekends without actually working in your business. The funnel will run on autopilot for you and continue to provide value to your audience! WIN-WIN in my opinion! 


3. People don't until they know, like and trust you.

Sales funnels give you opportunity to connect with them more times in a shorter period of time than if you were just sending weekly emails. So, the experts say it takes between 5-7 interactions before someone will consider purchasing from you. With a sales funnel you can shorten your timeline and get them faster results by following up via email every 2-3 days after your freebie is delivered versus once a week. 

Plus they're going to get better results since the information you're sending is super logical and targeted to the topic they were originally interested in! 

There are a ton more reasons why you should have a sales funnel strategy, but your time is valuable, and that should be enough to entice you to get started. I can help you get started with a step-by-step how-to on this Sales Funnel Masterclass.
