Below I wanted to share two sample chapters from my brand new book: Your Pocket Coach with you.
But first, a quick story on how we got here.
Ever since first picked up Napoleon Hill's masterpiece 'Think and Grow Rich' back in 2013, I've been deeply fascinated about how combinations of letters, words, paragraphs, and pages can inspire people to take action.
And so as I was holding that life-changing book, I just knew this was a feeling I wanted to share with others
with just one little difference....
I wanted it to be my words, my thoughts and my inspirations being shared with people to help them take action in the direction of their dreams.
A lot has happened since then, and after a few false starts with writings (ramblings) that have never seen the light of day (probably lucky for you), in 2017, I launched my first book (Why Wait To Be Great?).
The entire journey of writing it was incredible..but that's a story for another day).
Regardless...another year has passed since I wrote that one, and it's been huge in terms of learning for me...
and everything in-between.
I know you could say the same too.
But over the last year, I'd say one of my most proud achievements is what I wanted to share with you today...My brand new book.
It's called "Your Pocket Coach", and it's the ultimate 'modern-day bible' to literally carry with you in your pocket and get advice with whatever it is you're facing.
Although it's framed as a 'business' book, my hope is, it's going to do a lot more than just help in your business.
Ultimately, it's 60 actionable, practical pieces of advice to help you gain power of your mind, your money, your business and your life....
and then...TAKE ACTION!
So whether you read a page in the AM/PM or a page or two in between clients (each page takes 1-2 minutes), over the course of 3-4 weeks you'll be done!
(or you just binge on it in one go like the 20 or so people who've read the advanced copy)
Either way, you'll start making some much better decisions because you'll have all the information you need to succeed.
Without further ado, here you go
I hope you (really) enjoy it.
Chapter: Be A Master of Simplification
"In a world filled with information, the greatest value you can offer to others is to cut through the noise, break down the complicated and give your clients the clarity they need to make some much better decisions moving forward.
In 2017 I created a guide which has helped at least two dozen coaches launch their podcasts. I dedicated the entire first page to listing all the reasons most told me for why they couldn’t get started immediately and showed them how each one was simply an excuse. The result? No more resistance. Just action.
Now it’s your turn. As a master of simplification, you’ll help break things down to the most basic level for others to digest. To take the complex and remove all confusion. That way, those you serve cannot help but take action upon the advice you share, and you’ll be known as a straight to the point results first type coach.
When you look at it, everything you’ve ever achieved has simply been a series of tasks strung together in a specific direction. Now, it’s time to do the same for others. Take the time to chunk down what it is your clients want, and give them the clarity they need to achieve their dreams."
Chapter: Stand for Something
"If your business stands for nothing, it will fall for anything. It’s time to get clear on what you do and don’t stand for when working with clients.
Take a look at some of ours:
- We don’t do online training.
- We don’t do fad marketing.
- We don’t make empty promises.
- We don’t focus on anything that doesn’t help us grow.
- We do focus on results.
- We do focus on our clients.
- We do focus on providing exceptional value.
- We do focus on causes much bigger than ourselves.
When you develop a clear philosophy on how you do business, potential clients are in a much better position to make the choice whether or not you’re the right coach for them.
They’ll either be drawn in or pushed away. This is a good thing. Vague messaging attracts vague clients.
Get clear about who you’re for, and share that with the world. Once you do, watch how quickly the right people are attracted to your business."
