A large part of being an entrepreneur is thinking strategically for your business and yourself. To think strategically, you need clarity about what you want for yourself and your business. In this podcast, Rich Schefren will give you a short exercise that can help you find that clarity.
What if the one piece of information you needed to increase your profits was in the last place you’d think to look?
You won’t find it on any website or blog (yes, not even this one).
You won’t read about it in a course or report. You can’t even get this information from a guru like myself.
But chances are, it’s staring you right in the face.
In fact, it will take you less than 5 minutes to access this information. And it won’t cost you a penny to get it.
But once you have this information, you’ll be armed with the knowledge you need to double or triple the profits you’re making from your list right now.
Ignore this glaring opportunity… and your business will suffer.
Your Business’s Hidden Barometer
So where is this incredible intelligence coming from?
Usually the last place marketers look…
As an entrepreneur, you are writing your own life story. This is the most important story you will ever tell because it forms the reality that you know. In this podcast, Rich Schefren will explain how your own personal story is intricately tied to your success — and how to “edit” your own story to be even more successful.
In this episode Rich shows you how to acquire customers earlier in the buying cycle using reports and webinars
I want to get straight to the point today…
In my last post, I walked you through the single biggest obstacle that the majority of entrepreneurs put between themselves and their success.
In a word it’s knowledge.
The commonplace wisdom (which has been marketed extensively by specialists over the years)… is you need to learn a hell of a lot before you can ever hope to make a dollar online.
That’s not actually the case.
Now does being smart help? Of course. Does out-thinking your competitors give you an edge? Absolutely.
But part of being smart and out-thinking your competition is focusing on the right knowledge that you need to know… instead of the extra knowledge that’s “great to know in case I ever need it.”
(I even have a phrase for this. I call it “Just in case” knowledge instead of the more strategic, “Just in time” knowledge.)
But of course that brings up a very important question…
How do you know exactly what you want, so you can do the few select things in your business that you really need?
That’s what I want to cover today…
Imagine for a moment that every promise for every product, program or service you have ever bought had already come true.
That you were, in fact, already reaping the rewards of all the time, energy and investment you’ve sacrificed.
What would your life be like right now?
How would your life be different?
Well, when I ask new clients these same questions, they tell me…
- They would have already achieved the positioning they were after…
- They would already be a leading authority in in their market or niche…
- They would be making the money they’ve always dreamed about…
- And have the financial security that is currently missing in their life.
Yet, when I ask them what they’d need to achieve they give me one of a hundred different answers…
All of which are wrong.
In other words, all the things they think they need will never actually get them what they really want.
And that’s the purpose of this post…
In this episode you’ll learn how a little fourth grade math could mean the difference between you business growing or struggling.

- Stephen Covey, 1932-2012
Stephen R. Covey, author of “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” died unexpectedly on Monday. The world is saddened by his passing, but has been blessed these 79 years by his life.
He was a friend, but even more, he was a true benefactor to the betterment of our entire world. An obituary in USA Today started out by calling him “A force of human nature…”
They talked about how his “seven habits” have been woven into the emotional wellbeing of multimillions of people’s lives – in almost every walk of life – from self-help to the corporate boardrooms of big businesses.
