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 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 have 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 so 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 everybody good morning on
00:37
the today’s beautiful like I’m out here
00:39
I’m riding my bike again it’s a little
00:41
chilly it wore shorts today probably a
00:43
little too early to be short I think I
00:46
could be shorts or IQ bike which is both
00:48
this early mornings probably not a game
00:51
yes gentlemen already date anyway uh I
00:54
hope that I out like mr. to the last
00:57
podcast is on my bike and hero talking
00:59
about a little it’s not too bad but
01:01
anyway head into the office today we’ve
01:04
got a webinar for funnel scripts to
01:06
point oh it’s actually funnel scripts
01:08
but Jim’s at like 50 thousand billion
01:11
scripts not really a lot more and we’re
01:13
going to spend a year since we launched
01:14
this we’re relaunching it raising the
01:16
price and it’s gonna be fun so that’s
01:19
what’s happening today about 90 minutes
01:20
less than that anyway happening here
01:24
pretty soon so I would think it like
01:27
most of the podcast let’s talk about
01:29
like happy-go-lucky stuff and cool
01:31
things we’re doing and supply that but
01:33
something business sucks this is hard
01:36
and someone talk about today I have
01:39
another idea for a podcast on my share
01:41
in the future I’m nervous i’ll share
01:43
that one but i’m just going over my
01:47
regrets over the past 10 years because i
01:49
do have regrets so i won’t say that
01:53
podcast with a while was open and I
01:54
would
01:54
so I have it in my head i think i will
01:57
soon but not today today there’s not
02:00
much about regrets as much as this was
02:02
sad side of business you know it’s it’s
02:08
tough because when you get started
02:10
entrepreneur like I know about you guys
02:12
wanna sell stuff right like that’s my
02:14
kratom sell create and sell like that’s
02:16
like the fun partic that’s the part of
02:19
businesses like so much fun right
02:20
initially we started to you in your
02:23
basement or your closet or you’re on
02:25
your laptop in your bedroom where ever
02:27
it is usually or maybe one of you and
02:28
the partner and you’re starting you shot
02:31
in the creation process and you’re doing
02:32
stuff and you’re having fun and you’re
02:34
selling and or try selling thing is cold
02:37
oh my fingers are numb anyway what was
02:41
interesting is at first like you have
02:43
all these problems like I can’t figure
02:44
out so I can’t do this I can’t say no
02:46
I’m buying it traffic keep it like all
02:48
the problems happen in the first to your
02:50
business right and I understand look
02:51
like I remember those or a lot of people
02:53
who are going through those those that
02:56
part of business kind of stuff too but
02:58
after a while you figure out like what
03:00
are you so what do people actually want
03:01
what excited for you figure how to get
03:03
traffic you guys can get eyeballs
03:04
consistently I showed you some cool
03:07
stuff there that part becomes really
03:09
really fun right you start excuse me um
03:12
and uh and everything’s working enjoy
03:17
sweet I all my problems are solved that
03:19
make himself making money things are
03:20
good and then what happened well then
03:22
you start getting all customers are
03:24
emailing you the more people invented a
03:26
you get started rounding in like
03:30
supporting all the customers would come
03:32
in it was a long time I was like I was
03:34
pride myself like I hands draw my own
03:35
emails and then after a couple years
03:38
that like I couldn’t do anymore I can’t
03:40
I went crazy I couldn’t on vacation I
03:42
was on the case not stressing out like I
03:44
could create anymore except so busy so
03:46
finally I could hire some help support
03:48
and that I sprayed me this is how your
03:51
support person now you’ve got people in
03:53
this payroll there’s taxes and there’s
03:54
always new problems introduced right and
03:56
then just keep growing then you try to
03:59
figure out ways to maximize your time
04:01
and figure out things you’re that you
04:02
like the most and do that and it’s our
04:03
outsourcing and hiring
04:04
the other part and you go from one
04:06
person to to just five to ten you know
04:09
now in clickfunnels we have just shy of
04:11
100 people now crazy so I’d never get
04:14
back to the space despot but we’ve been
04:17
smarter this time around and so with
04:19
hundred people’s all sorts of new
04:20
challenges issue especially my business
04:22
square in ninety percent of your
04:24
employees all entrepreneurs may I want
04:25
to say I want to be selling stuff and
04:29
it’s hard to keep them focused and like
04:32
that’s a constant you know struggle on
04:34
my side and there’s other you know other
04:37
things taxes use trademark jeans now as
04:38
we got they all sorts of people out
04:40
there using clickfunnels now we’re
04:41
hiring a full-time like legal person is
04:43
to scour the internet for compliance
04:45
it’s like ah like success breeds a whole
04:48
new level of a challenges and and hard
04:52
things that you don’t think about when
04:54
you’re like tractor yourself something
04:55
at the beginning right but they come and
04:57
there’s just different lake all those
04:59
different swung out strengths weaknesses
05:01
opportunities and threats like the
05:03
different opportunities at each each
05:06
level but of everything the thing I
05:09
think sucks the worst in this whole
05:10
business is when the people you love and
05:13
you care about and people have done
05:15
great work for you that wherever you
05:17
have to let him go and like I still
05:21
can’t get over I remember the first time
05:22
I fired some of my crimes next hour and
05:24
the first was a horrible person like II
05:25
like look in the back and a like not
05:27
only should I fired my cell lock guy
05:29
called the cops and locked them up and I
05:30
still cried like a little baby anyway so
05:33
yesterday we had to let go a couple
05:35
people don’t own these a long time that
05:37
I care about and just do it didn’t it
05:40
wasn’t the right fit anymore and yeah
05:43
for me like it it destroys me that guy
05:45
all that I can’t even function or stink
05:47
or eat or like just because I I hate it
05:53
because I know like what our business
05:56
means to me and like if someone took
05:58
that away from me how I would feel and
06:00
like I think it’s placed all those
06:01
things on on them and it’s just it’s
06:05
horrible but some things that that has
06:09
to happen min
06:11
there’s always make logical sense but
06:13
sometimes you I don’t know you know so I
06:17
just want to show the essay because I
06:18
know that depending where yeah like
06:20
there’s different pains you guys all
06:22
going through this different pains every
06:23
step in this in this process but the one
06:26
for me that are always the worst is
06:27
parting with people that are amazing
06:29
that you care about and you want to
06:31
succeed but and this is what the the one
06:35
thing that that has given me comfort is
06:38
just I feel like I feel like if
06:43
someone’s not completely happy the spot
06:45
or doesn’t fit it makes sense that my
06:47
house is doesn’t flush I like to try
06:49
really hard to make it work and try to
06:52
elicit put a round peg in a square hole
06:55
or vice versa whatever and like we can
07:02
do that but I can get I think knowledge
07:04
that hurt the business I think it hurts
07:05
them more often or not so usually
07:08
there’s like this huge pain of like
07:10
never let someone go but like looking
07:13
back now live left 14 years now having
07:15
employees and sings seeing a sum of
07:20
their some of the drinks afterwards it’s
07:22
like man like there’s so much pain
07:24
button that person go but like what what
07:26
came from that and it was the best thing
07:29
I guess that we admitted on this that
07:31
that new door and their life on him open
07:33
and I for example awesome I can’t see
07:38
into details but something we have led
07:39
go about six months ago I eight months
07:41
ago now it was really painful I care
07:43
about them their family their kids like
07:45
it was like all my eyes out and then I
07:48
looked I look now eight months later and
07:50
like where that person went to the next
07:52
job opened up a door which radically
07:55
changed that person’s life and had we
07:57
selfishly that kept them it wouldn’t
07:59
serve us or them and anyway so that’s
08:02
the only thing that kind of gives me
08:04
solace that’s right words solitude
08:06
solace think so anyway makes me so
08:08
little better the times like this so
08:10
anyway just want to kind of give you
08:12
have that podcast and they know that
08:13
wherever you’re at whatever the
08:14
challenges that you’re struggling with
08:16
like I get it I felt at different levels
08:18
um I think the biggest thing is just
08:20
understanding that and being okay with
08:21
it and keep moving forward keep keep
08:24
don’t lose sight of your vision of what
08:26
you’re trying to create and try and who
08:28
you’re trying to serve because today
08:30
that’s the most important things and
08:32
there will be people to come and go that
08:34
help you on your mission in different
08:35
stages and I think those people brought
08:38
into your life and now your life on
08:39
purpose for different reasons and we go
08:43
through that way hopefully make some of
08:45

08:47
