00:01
welcome to marketing your car the
00:04
podcast for funnel hackers everywhere
00:05
you’re now part of a small group of
00:07
underground entrepreneurs who are trying
00:09
to change the world through the products
00:10
and the services that we believe in but
00:12
because we don’t rely on venture
00:13
capitalists we don’t have financial
00:15
safety net so we had to do things
00:16
differently we have to do things smarter
00:18
we do that through an art and a science
00:20
we call funnel hacking but this podcast
00:23
will give you a glimpse at the daily
00:24
life of a funnel hacker so let’s get
00:26
started hey everyone’s russell brunson
00:32
and i’m excited have you here for
00:35
marking your car it is halloween which
00:37
is my favorite holiday and it’s one days
00:40
i look forward to the most of the year
00:42
it’s funny because so far as it tastes
00:45
and it’s been a tough one it’s 217
00:48
offend my kids school for the playground
00:49
for the Halloween parade which I’m
00:50
really looking forward to than of
00:52
Halloween stuff tonight and everything
00:54
so I’m just curious so people would ask
00:58
me all the time Russell how do you so
00:59
much stuff done blah blah blah blah I
01:00
usually pride myself and I can like
01:02
handle a lot a lot of weight on my
01:04
shoulders but today I kind of like
01:09
collapsed a little bit underneath that
01:10
way and I know we don’t normally talk
01:13
about those kind of things but i just
01:15
want kind of talk through except make me
01:18
feel better probably but on the other
01:20
side hopefully it it it helps you guys
01:26
somehow who knows so it’s funny dan
01:29
gable who’s one of he’s like the Michael
01:31
Jordan wrestling I was watching a thing
01:33
one time when he was coaching and he you
01:35
know he was one of the best wrestlers of
01:36
all-time then also the best coaches of
01:39
all time of any sport and they’d won
01:41
like 20 or 30 NCAA championships in a
01:43
row and someone asked him if he believed
01:45
in pressure he said well I believe
01:47
there’s pressure there but I just don’t
01:48
believe in like putting myself
01:49
underneath it I think the most part try
01:51
take that approach I’m not putting
01:52
myself under pressure I get there but
01:54
I’m dodging it him getting around we
01:56
just keep moving forward right but today
01:58
was on today’s if I like it I’ll just
01:59
hit on my shoulders and was just like oh
02:01
like I just couldn’t
02:02
handled also is actually good i’m
02:05
leaving but it’s kind of crazy we’ve got
02:07
we had the inner circle last week for
02:09
four days which is so much fun i love it
02:11
that you know it’s hard though same time
02:13
because it’s four days I’m a bitter
02:15
spiced finish the whole week that you
02:16
kind of you know in the office moving
02:17
things forward so there’s stuff
02:18
happening especially when you’re running
02:20
a big company there’s a lot of stuff
02:21
then usually have two or three weeks
02:22
between each mastermind but then but
02:25
this week this time because the timing
02:26
stuff went back to backs on the in fact
02:28
tomorrow master my starts tomorrow so
02:29
basically one day today well part of a
02:32
day tell to to get done everything for
02:34
for all of last week and all next week
02:35
and so you know basically after that I’m
02:39
kind of out of commission again so I’ve
02:41
had a whole bunch of stuff trying to get
02:42
done so today was just like hey Russell
02:44
you’re here the brunt of everything is
02:46
all falling and it was just tough
02:47
because oh and then this weekend also or
02:51
trying to get the expert secrets book
02:53
done in time for the live event
02:54
basically told me that to do that we had
02:56
all done like next two weeks which means
02:57
edit which means I’d to have it all done
03:00
this week which means we don’t have this
03:02
week to do it so so I spent all day this
03:06
weekend were you know editing the book I
03:08
spent all day yesterday and I spent half
03:11
of today and so far i got the
03:12
introduction and part of chapter one
03:14
time and so I was totally stressed about
03:16
that because like if I don’t have the
03:17
book for the event I throws off this
03:19
huge timelines sequence of events around
03:21
that so that’s kind of crazy and then
03:24
like from a church I’ve got two callings
03:27
I I’m the 11 year old scout master and I
03:29
almost was secretary for the group
03:32
called the elders quorum so that’s like
03:33
to to Simon’s and then the guy called
03:35
yesterday they call this asking of my
03:37
wife and I would take on the ward
03:38
christmas party which was basically are
03:39
charged at throwing a party for like 500
03:41
people plus my wife got though also has
03:45
the company christmas party like a week
03:47
after that so it’s like there’s new
03:49
pressure there and then
03:53
oh oh yeah I can’t even like if I told
03:56
you all the things I’m think most people
03:58
please me oh there’s a whole my stuff on
04:00
the on the cliq funnel side there’s much
04:02
stuff on the sales side I’ve got you
04:08
know tons of inner circle members
04:10
message me questions is fun i love going
04:11
back and forth it sometimes adds up like
04:13
right now i’ve got probably 30 messages
04:15
from inner circle members on boxer that
04:17
i’m behind on & 0 half my gonna be here
04:19
tomorrow so i’m stressed and I gotta
04:20
catch up on those and then the final act
04:24
of TV episodes we been filming feels
04:26
like a lot of the entrepreneurs who were
04:27
doing stuff for coming back like needing
04:29
help and getting stuck in Kent getting
04:30
can’t move through the process need me
04:33
to rewrite webinar to review things or
04:35
check things and that I got feel bad
04:37
when the guise of my team he wrote a
04:39
book one at Ford for and I tell him like
04:42
two or three months I was going to have
04:44
and I had time and the today he was
04:46
asking about that I wanted to meet about
04:47
something else all these things it was
04:48
just like all these things just came to
04:51
a point today where I was just like what
04:53
did 200 mad anyway so yes I feel
04:58
pressured yes some days is it’s tough so
05:01
this is really today it was really tough
05:03
I’m not gonna lie my feeling is funny
05:05
like I’m so excited to see my kids and
05:07
the parade but feeling guilty because of
05:09
that because I feel like I owe so much
05:10
to do i might go what’s the point of
05:12
doing any of it if I can’t go to my kids
05:14
Halloween play you know I mean so anyway
05:19
that’s kind of where I’m at right now
05:21
but I don’t want anyone to be concerned
05:24
about leaks but I I I do podcasts where
05:28
I kind of rent a little bit something I
05:30
was getting a message me like try to
05:31
help and something I need I just needed
05:33
a place to vent and hopefully gives you
05:35
guys some
05:36
you know whatever it is unique so all
05:39
you guys go that well we all do it
05:41
there’s so many things happening in and
05:42
I’m the king of like over-committing I
05:44
get so excited by things i say yes i do
05:46
this and then it builds a point where I
05:48
just like I can’t handle it also so
05:51
anyway so before I left the office a
05:53
couple things I tried to buy myself an
05:54
extra two weeks on the book which is
05:55
really being pressure i’m in our back
05:56
hoping that works i just kind of try to
06:00
go back to all these commitments i have
06:02
and just play some more realistic
06:03
timelines and and cutting some things
06:05
out and do things like that and it’ll be
06:07
good by the time we got mastermind this
06:10
week which again i’m so excited like the
06:12
two groups are coming it’s gonna be like
06:14
three nice let me just unplug and just
06:16
stop stressing that everything just hang
06:17
out with some amazing entrepreneurs you
06:20
know it’s funny I don’t normally care
06:21
about politics too much even like the
06:22
stress of this election like because I’m
06:25
stressed out either side wins like I
06:27
think I don’t want to either doesn’t
06:29
like Lex is coming so I’m really excited
06:31
to hang out with like entrepreneurs who
06:32
are trying to change the world for next
06:34
four days which that’s looking forward
06:36
to that and it’s gonna be good i’m just
06:40
gonna kind of i think when the problems
06:42
i have is like one of the things that
06:44
make me good way i do it also becomes
06:45
one of the constraints is I’m really
06:48
good like placing like I’ve talked about
06:51
Slaton different trainings like letter
06:52
gold like I said deadlines for myself
06:54
like one things have to happen and
06:56
sometimes I forget in my mind that I set
06:57
those deadlines and they’re not actual
06:59
deadline so I think it’s me coming back
07:00
a lot of my letter gold deadlines for
07:01
things I haven’t andrey shifting them
07:03
which is against i tell you guys to do
07:05
it’s like set a letter a letter gold
07:07
deadline that don’t don’t deviate from
07:09
it less you’re gonna kill yourself right
07:11
and I got and I tell you guys that
07:13
because it’s true for me like when I saw
07:14
the deadline my head like this a shop in
07:15
this day like it has to happen that day
07:17
and I put so I can become so real for me
07:20
that like I put myself in an insane
07:23
amounts of pressure because of that and
07:24
so for me I things can come back and I
07:26
just got to tonight hopefully get some
07:28
extensions like on the book and a couple
07:30
things like that and then
07:31
and then kind of reset some some
07:32
timelines and I have it I a better time
07:35
people know I get so excited
07:36
opportunities and about everything I
07:38
just I just say yes the things the way
07:41
too easy and so I got to get better at
07:43
the magic word know so i think i’m
07:47
coaching myself like it if one of my
07:49
inner circle members vox me this the
07:51
last seven minutes I know exactly how
07:53
I’d coach them some kind of coaching
07:54
myself as if I me so Russell the first
07:56
thing I would do she got set realistic
07:58
expectations I know you think you’re the
08:00
man but you’re not you can’t survive
08:02
everything second thing I would do is
08:04
you’ve got to go back to the people you
08:05
a commitment soon you’ve got to tell us
08:06
some people known it’s gonna be hard
08:08
it’s gonna hurt their feelings sometimes
08:09
but it’s not personal and you know it’s
08:11
not nice i told them understand that
08:12
it’s not that you love them but it’s
08:14
just not possible like you’re gonna
08:15
crack and then everything will fall
08:17
apart for you and for everybody if you
08:18
don’t that’s the second thing i would do
08:20
the third thing Russell you should do is
08:22
is you should is let’s see is you need
08:28
to get your book extension like if you
08:30
have to pay more money but ever that
08:31
takes just tell them that you got it
08:34
make the extension and and that you will
08:35
pay whatever takes make that work in
08:37
that you know money because it hopefully
08:38
help solve that problem that out of the
08:40
way with these other people you’re
08:43
working with in the Far Court Evie
08:44
remember these are businesses you’re
08:45
helping with they’re not doing those
08:46
businesses you need to put the onus back
08:48
on them and get them to work harder and
08:51
get them to think through things you
08:52
can’t answer every question for them
08:53
they need to understand that and let
08:54
them run let them kind of run with it
08:56
and and just and do it and that’s gonna
08:59
help them grow actually more because
09:01
you’re so stressed about them making
09:02
money and you forget that it’s not about
09:03
money it’s about growth for them if they
09:05
don’t grow then every time you take your
09:07
eye off the focus it’s all going to
09:09
collapse again help them understand that
09:10
and and and and leverage people on your
09:18
team everyone wants to help you and
09:19
sometimes you’re scared to ask for help
09:21
because because you’re you know
09:24
everyone’s doing so much anyway and you
09:26
just think like I use data to your plate
09:27
and not not worry about it but they’re
09:29
there to support you and help you and so
09:31
make sure you let you you leverage them
09:32
because again if you if you’re able to
09:34
handle this it’s really bad for all of
09:37
them like they’ve they’ve put their
09:38
lives in their hearts and their souls
09:39
into it as well and so it’s important
09:41
that that
09:44
that they they do what they need to do
09:46
and you do need to do and they want you
09:48
to be there so those things i recommend
09:50
wrestle hope that helps I’m talk soon so
09:52
that’s how it box myself so there’s my
09:54
advice to myself hopefully ticket for
09:57
yourself as well actually feel a lot
09:59
better than saying that all out loud so
10:00
thank you guys for bearing with varying
10:03
with me the other thing that some
10:05
interesting like when you know we talked
10:08
about hiring consultants all the time
10:09
and it was funny but I was like well if
10:10
we don’t hire ourselves as consultants
10:12
we tell ourselves and then usually know
10:13
the answer so you guys are saw me do it
10:16
here live I just consulted myself you
10:17
try consulting yourself and next time
10:19
you have an issue and you’ll probably
10:19
solve all your problems pretty good
10:22
alright so with that said I’m at school
10:25
about to run in and go see my kids
10:26
dressed up as Halloween costumes which
10:28
is gonna be amazing we’re a ton of fun
10:29
and everything else is just gonna fade
10:31
away I’m gonna get to a state because my
10:32
kids and my family right now and
10:34
business Russell is turning off because
10:36
now that stuff actually matters and dad
10:38
is turning on because that is what
10:40
matters that said you guys don’t forget
10:43
there’s a famous quote from David o
10:45
McKay says the no success can compensate
10:47
for failure in the home so go to your
10:49
kids Halloween parties have some fun
10:51
I’ll talk to you again soon
