Who's Got Your Money?

There is a time when you don’t ask for money. There is a time to give and a time to take. I hear some say that their model is not built on monetization—they don’t charge for their things. When you hear somebody say give content, give content, give content, they might have a longer runway than you. They might have gotten money from somewhere else. Some people may be in a position where they could give away everything for free, but you’ve got two kids and you’ve got to pay your bills.

Two major points to find who's got your money:

1. People want to exchange with you—If you give 7 streams a day, giving away real content, there’s no reason not to ask for the deal. Asking is a sense of self-worth. I always have a product someone can buy from me. It means you have something of value. What is wrong with monetizing? The world revolves around it. For years I would do a sales meeting for free, then I asked for the money. People want to exchange with you if you bring value.

2. Your financial situation depends on new money—You need new money because you don’t want to be dependent on one income flow. No matter how big the one flow is you should never depend on one flow of income. I knew an executive in 2008 who was earning $350,000 a year and suddenly that income shut off. Create multiple streams of income that continue to drip into your wealth basket. This is not diversifying your wealth but fortifying it.

In truth, you’re never broke.

If you have no money, you still have something to bring to the table. Do you have faith, friends, creativity, or commitment? Then you aren’t broke. Since you aren’t broke the only thing keeping you from new money is settling for the status quo.

You must strive—not settle.

Comfort is the most dangerous element of finances. The middle class is built on comfort, settling and making ‘just’ enough. The wealthy never get enough wealth and never seek comfort. They seek freedom and abundance and always strive for more.

Today I’m making a public declaration, and I’m asking you to do the same in the comments.

"I am done playing around, I’m done with average, I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired, I’m done playing below my potential, I’m done just barely getting by, just barely making it, I’m done with little planes, little trips, little think, and little people. I want new money and I want to exchange with new customers."

If you agree with this message and you want to make a public declaration, then post it in comments that you too are done.

If you aren’t rich yet, it’s because you don’t monetize. Everyone can make a product, and if you haven’t yet made one it’s not because you’re broke. If you give away content, it’s time to start monetizing. I made this T-Shirt to remind myself of this concept everyday. Get yours here.

When should you start monetizing? Today. Who’s got your money? If you don’t know how or where to start, get on Cardone University today and I will coach you to your riches. Let’s exchange—new money for me and massive value for you—a winner’s exchange so you can find who has your money tomorrow.

Be great,

It's been eight years since the 2008 recession. I believe we are in a massive recession right now but the media can’t call it that because by definition we aren’t there yet.

A Recession is defined as a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters...

Want a life of abundance?

Have an attitude of service—give, give, give. Folks, nothing makes people feel better than giving. It’s not about receiving a gift, but giving a gift. Nothing feels as good as giving. The more you give the more you’ll get. The truth is, the more you give, the more you’ll have to give.

Too many people worry about what they get rather than what they give out to the market place, out to your friends, and out to your family. The attitude of service, the attitude of helping, the attitude of caring, of wanting to assist and support others will bring you abundant levels of success.

Too many people have their hand out thinking and saying, “Hey what do I get?” “What am I going to get paid for this job?” “What are the benefits of the job going to be?” If you want that job you should be saying, “This is what I’m going to give you”. Go into all situations with what you have to offer, what you have to give, what you can contribute to the world, and the world will open up its treasure box and give you all the gold it has. Give, give, give.

It’s about having an attitude of abundance. The more you give, the more you’ll have to give. I have an old friend who came from a poverty situation. He had nothing. He now has over 1,600 apartments in California and has abundance in his life. I’m going to tell you how he got there. First, he committed to getting his life better. Second, he is one of the most generous guys I’ve ever met. If the pizza is $30 he’s going to tip the guy $20. He treats his life as though it’s abundant and he gets abundance in return.

This give, give, give thing needs to be genuine. Give with sincerity and be authentic. My seminar business was about giving meetings. I knocked on doors, “Hey can I motivate your people? It will just take me 10 minutes and it will increase your sales.” I give, and if they like me enough they do business because they want to give something back as reciprocation. If it’s not real and authentic they’ll know it. So you must do it with intention in your heart that you will give to people.

I’m not worried about getting—I’m going to give. Look at the ocean, something goes out, something comes back in. The tide comes in and goes out—it doesn’t go one way. Same way with giving. You give and you’ll get back. Nothing is so attractive as someone who is positive and makes a contribution. I’m not talking about just money, but contributing your heart. Look forward to treating a person like a millionaire and they’ll start spending money like a millionaire. Treat people like they don’t have anything and you won’t get anything.

Quit thinking about yourself all of the time. If you are worried about people taking advantage of you, then you need to find more people to take advantage of you. Put yourself into the position to be a cause. Cause and effect. I’m going to give and I’m going to get something after a period of time. Focus on how you can be the cause and don’t worry about the effect.

If you want more money you have to invest more, give more, and spend more. If nobody spent money nobody would make any money. The less you are attached to money, the more money comes. Invest today in Cardone University. I’m asking you a small price for the value that I give—guaranteed. Buy today and thank me later.

Be great,

Why do 87% of salespeople miss quota?

I believe it is unethical to come up short.

While I miss targets constantly, I never make excuses for why I come up short. Making sense of missing quotas is insane—never allow it. You must create a culture that makes missing quotas unacceptable. If you are the boss or a manager, it’s your job to make sure every person in the organization hits their quota.

An 87% failure rate is terrible on anyone’s scale—and the solution isn’t to reduce the target.

Are you tired of missing sales yet?

The bad news is that 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. That means the majority of Americans don’t have enough money in their savings account to cover unexpected expenses. You need the money, your company needs the money, and our economy needs the money. Sales is the only way to grow your business and finances, yet most companies have terrible conversion rates. People are not properly motivated. What's missing are the fundamentals of selling basics.

The good news is that this is all fixable. You don’t need to have 87% of your people miss quota. This is something that is controllable. Anyone can learn to sell and anyone can sell more. A few years ago I realized that the sales approach hadn’t kept up with technology so I created a modern training solution, a platform where you can get your entire organization on board and have daily sales meetings distributed to all your employees to increase engagement, have accountability and get reports so you can measure the training.

For training to be effective it needs to happen daily and It needs to be accessible. I have made solutions for all of your missed sales opportunities and to get you started I am offering a free download of:

7 Reasons You Are Missing Sales
1. Hiring Mistakes—Hiring the wrong people costs money and it wastes time. There are solutions to help with this problem. Try a DISC assessment—download the ebook for more on that.

2. Disengagement—70% of employees are disengaged at their job. Your sales team know people right now who will buy your product if they were simply contacted. If your team isn’t engaged, you aren’t a sales focused organization. You need daily meetings, you need a platform to provide motivation and skills, and you need to offer opportunities for bonus money.

3. No Playbook—90% of salespeople have never read a book on sales. Can you imagine employing a finance guy who has never read a book on finances? Look, chefs need recipes. A sports coach needs a playbook. A playbook provides information on rejection, motivation, stalls, negotiating and more. If you have a playbook it has to be dynamic and deliverable when the salesperson needs it.

4. No Follow-Up—48% of sales people never follow-up. Only 2% of sales are made on the first contact. How many people make one lazy attempt at follow-up before quitting? For follow-up to be effective you need to create scripts for it, get creative, and be held accountable.

5. No Close—72% salespeople never ask for the order. Closing is an entirely different skill than selling. You need to make a habit of training daily and using role play to practice handling the different objections your team faces. Stop practicing on the customer.

6. Time Management—82% of sales managers don’t have time to train their staff. You should focus on activities that sell vs. activities that do not. Sales are what makes your business go!

7. Failed Training—The only reason to do sales training is to increase sales. There is no other reason. Sales training is not a sales activity and should not be done on the job, during a call, at someone's door, or take away from a customer experience.

Don’t let your sales team practice on your customers anymore.

Download the ebook today.

Before you calculate the cost of training you should calculate the cost of mishandling opportunities that result from not training people in your company. Sales training fails many companies because it is incorrectly implemented, not measurable, outdated and not relevant.

Sales training must actually assist in solving problems and improve the sales effectiveness of the organization. I promise you my platform handles everything you need.

Quit being tired of missing sales and start making them,

We are in for very hard economic times but the media can't tell you about it until it's too late.
