What Randy Couture Taught Me About Strategy

Re: What Randy Couture Taught Me About Strategy

About a year ago Vickie and I were asked to help on a TV set with some
camera work . This was a local Las Vegas TV station that produced a show on Success. They interviewed successful people in different niches. From sports to Science…

The person being interviewed was Two Time UFC Champion Randy Couture. Randy is a legend in the sport. He’s one of two fighters that has won Titles in two different weight classes. He’s a Hall of Famer for UFC.

At one point during the interview they took some questions from the audience.

One women asked…
“It looks like you are really angry when you fight and you just want to kill the other guy. Are you angry when you fight?”
 
Randy’s response…
“The minute I get angry or loose my temper, I’ve lost the fight. MMA is nothing but a phyiscal chess match. I make a move, he makes a move. The minute I get angry, I’ve lost the ability to make quality decisions, and that’s dangerous in my business.”

I remember thinking to myself…‘WOW!” That was awesome!

How does that relate to your Marketing Strategy?
In the marketing of our businesses, we don’t always get the results we expect.
Sometimes the results are better and sometimes they are not so good.

Armand Morin, one of my marketing mentors has a saying: “It Is What It Is”.

The Key Nugget of Wisdom That I Got From Randy Couture is:
 When things go wrong in your business, and they will go wrong, the  key is to keep your head in the game.

1. Focus on Solutions
2. Focus on Options
3. Focus on Progress
4. Focus on Making Quality Decisions

Keep Your Head in The Game,

Re: Seize Fire!

While I was waiting for my lunch at a local restaruant I decided to send out a few text messages. I texted about 10 quick messages out to a few friends and business associates. All short and motivational in spirit.

For Example…
You’re awesome!
Anyone tell you they love you today? We do!
Thanks for you’re help. Yo Da Man!
You’re hired! See you Friday.
You sounded great on Saturday night!

Just a bunch of short unexpected messages. Feel good messages. 

Suddently it started…
A tidal wave text messages were being sent back to me like a rapid fire machine gun. Replies of thanks. Great hearing from you. Thank you for the kind words.

Then it hit me…
It is truly possible that from here on, a major war, anywhere in the world could be ended with a  simple Text Message…Seize Fire!

This knocked my socks off! Don’t let the simplicity of what simple text message can do for you and your business. Your messages can be used to help, hurt, heal or inspire.

Right now, while you are thinking about it, pick 3 people from your text roladex. Write them a simple message…

Just want you to know I am thinking about and you are awesome!

Now Go Spread Some Love,

Motivating Your Affiliates

From: Marketing You Can Use
Re: Motivating Your Affiliates

Motivating your affiliates is critical to the success of your affiliate program. At first glance, being paid a good commission for a good product is reasonable.

It starts the affiliate relationship with your company. However, money alone  is not neccessarily the only motivating factor for an affiliate to promote your product.

Sometimes an affiliate likes a product but hates the customer service. Other times an affiliate wants more promo tools.

That’s why it is so important that “YOU” stay in touch with your affiliates. Find out what they need. Find out what they want. What excites them? What drives them? To find this kind of information out, you need to communicate with them.

As I stated earlier, money is not the only motivating facotr, it’s a strong one, but not the only one.

For intance we recently started an affiliate contest for Armand Morin’s Brave The Wave, Experience Event coming up June 26,27 in Orlando Flroida.
 Here is my link… http://bit.ly/9KiB8j 

We decided to have an affiliate contest and the first prize is a Apple iPad! Turns out affiliates just “LOVE” affiliate contests!

Watch the video below. I bumped into Super Affiliate Connie Rageen Green at the airport in Minneapolis today. We were both returning from Armand Morin’s AM2  private event. 

Let Connie tell you in her own words the power of an affiliate contest…

Here’s to Motivating Your Affiliates,

Attitude Over Economy

This past week there was an event in Las Vegas called InvestFest. Some of the worlds top motivational speakers and business entreprenuers in the world gave presentations. Les Brown, Mark Victor Hansen, Brian Tracy and Bill Walsh were among the superstars that spoke…

No doubt, people are struggling more now than ever before. All the hoping and wishing isn’t going to change that.

However, what you can control is your attitude. As my friend Les Brown says, “When things go bad, you don’t have to follow it”. Now more than ever you need to protect and empower your mental real estate.

*You need to monitor what you listen to.
*You need to monitor what you watch.
*You need to monitor what you read.

Everything yo do plants a seed in your mind. That seed grows to move you forward or hold you back.  When it come to your business it is your responsibility to stay focused, persistent and optimistic.  That’s why you need to protect your mental real estate.

Check out this short powerful interview I did with Venture Capitalist/Business Coach, Motivational Speaker Bill Walsh. Listen to what Bill has to say about attitude. You’ll be glad you did!

Now Make it a Great Day!
