00:50
happened we hear some backstory is two
00:54
good buddies of mine Pete Vargas and
00:56

00:59
last year when we were teens he invited
01:02
me to go out on one night basically a
01:04
couple buddies all got together chipped
01:06

01:15
driving around and again it was just for
01:17
networking just for fun it was towards
01:19

01:21
time met some additional people I hadn’t
01:23

01:24
lot of real good friendships well this
01:27

02:00
little bit bigger boat than we had last
02:01
year I’m like okay no big deal so right
02:05
before I’m supposed to show up to it I
02:07
went down to the docks and all of a
02:09
sudden I looked
02:11
line and this line begins forming I’m
02:15
like what is going on this man I know
02:17
how big the boat was last year there’s
02:18
no way in the world this is gonna work I
02:20
didn’t know if Keith has a boat and Pete
02:22

02:24

02:25
could walk around the corner like guys
02:27

02:30
and so we walked down with him before
02:33
everyone else kind of got on the boat he
02:35
says check out that boat and at the end
02:37
of the pier was this double story that’s
02:41

02:44
they basically put together and I’m like
02:47

02:51
boat for dinner
02:52
I’m like oh my gosh you guys that’s
02:54

02:56
then all of a sudden I turn around and I
02:57
go back to see who’s basically coming on
03:00
the boat and these are awesome of my the
03:02
people I’ve known for years and some of
03:04
the people who I’ve been dying to get to
03:05
know and they literally are like the
03:07
who’s who of online as well as offline
03:10
marketing just great great people people
03:13
who literally product-wise have sold
03:15
hundreds of millions of products some
03:18
into the billions and it literally
03:20
became a billion dollar yacht dinner
03:22
cruise and as fun as it was but I really
03:26
wanna make sure you guys understand is
03:27
all the cool things that happened all
03:29
because of this so first of all we get
03:33
on the yacht we’re having dinner and
03:35
while we’re sitting there before dinner
03:37
you know everyone’s just kind of
03:39
networking drinks everything else then
03:40
we go down to have dinner and I’m
03:42
sitting down at one of the tables at the
03:44
back of the boat basically and Keith
03:49
comes over and goes so what do you think
03:50
I’m like I think it’s fantastic you guys
03:51
did an amazing job because so we’re
03:53
gonna basically take some time here and
03:56
have people just kind of network I’m
03:57
like I mean it really curious to see how
03:59
you’re gonna get all these people
04:00
Network goes well check this out so he
04:03
and Pete get up and they basically do
04:05
this quick little introduction saying
04:06
listen guys three years ago we came to
04:08
traffic and conversion together and not
04:10
and we did not know a single soul is the
04:13
first time we’d ever been to traffic and
04:14
conversion event and we decided that
04:16
together somehow we were gonna get to
04:18
know the very best influencers at this
04:21
entire event and we’ve spent the last
04:23
three years Network
04:25
like crazy and this evening tonight is
04:27
the result of our three-year pursuit to
04:29
get to know the very best in the
04:31
industry and he said what we’d like to
04:34
do tonight is we just want you guys to
04:36
have fun and he said you know what in
04:40
fact next year we want to invite all of
04:41
you guys back and oh by the way Dave and
04:44
clickfunnels are actually gonna be
04:45
sponsoring next year’s event and I’m
04:46
like totally I mean Pete totally threw
04:48
me under the bus
04:49
props to him for basically having the
04:51
huevos to do it in front of a hundred of
04:53
my peers and friends but it was actually
04:55
kind of a kind of cool thing so yes next
04:57
year talking Todd Russell the rest the
04:59
partners and will be sponsoring their
05:01
fun little dinner yacht cruise but what
05:02
I really want to make sure you guys
05:03
understand is the way that they did it
05:08
is the magic and that’s the part I want
05:11
to make sure you guys focus on it’s not
05:12
the fact that there is a these crazy
05:14
amazing people on this boat it’s the
05:16
fact that they went out of their way
05:17
literally for three years to start
05:21
networking and providing value and Keith
05:23
and Pete have provided so much value
05:25
over the last three years to people
05:26
whether it’s to making introductions to
05:28
other people and it can realize no one
05:31
paid to get on this yacht that night it
05:33
was just a free dinner that they had put
05:35
together to basically celebrate for them
05:39
what was an amazing experience of really
05:43
understanding the value of people and so
05:45
they spent a whole bunch of time going
05:47
through that and then the great thing is
05:49
because of the friendships that so many
05:51
people have had and the value that Keith
05:53
and Pete has given to these people over
05:54
all these years there was all the egos
05:57
were left at the door and all this kind
05:59
of became starstruck about the other
06:01
people who are there going holy smokes I
06:03
can’t believe Pete and Keith you got
06:04
everybody on this boat and the greatest
06:07
part was at that dinner what I ended up
06:09
doing before the dinner came I said
06:12
listen there are cards on everyone’s
06:13
table what I’d like you guys to do is
06:15
write down a question that you’re
06:17
struggling with in your business or
06:18
something you have want to answer for
06:20
and we’re gonna take the first 20
06:22
minutes here and just see if someone in
06:24
the audience here will be able to answer
06:25
that question for you it was amazing I
06:28
couldn’t even believe it there was not a
06:30
question that didn’t that couldn’t be
06:32
answered whether it had to do with
06:34
relationships with finances with
06:36
anything in their business people
06:39
getting that someone to say hey someone
06:40
have an answer for that question and two
06:42
or three hands would come up and they
06:44
would take two or three minutes real
06:45
quick and say this is how what I would
06:46
recommend this is what I would do this
06:47
is what I would do and the value that
06:49
could just continue to exude from
06:51
everybody was just it set the tone for
06:54
the whole evening work all people were
06:56
doing was sharing it wasn’t about no one
06:58
was trying to one-up each other it was
07:00
because everyone had set up the
07:01
situation as far as developing true
07:03
friendships and relationships that had
07:04
value and they were all there just to
07:06
help each other out so my only reason
07:09
bringing this up is I get questions all
07:11
the time about how how do I get to know
07:13
people well to me there’s there’s really
07:18
only one way of doing it and that’s
07:19
through a value exchange and I really
07:21
encourage you guys to spend the time to
07:23
get to know people and a network and to
07:25
make networking have fun and if you’re
07:27
not very good at networking spend the
07:29
time to just pick a couple people and
07:32
ask for them to introduce you so you
07:33
don’t have to be the person going out of
07:35
your way one of the things I can tell
07:37
you that I’ve seen happen a ton recently
07:40
and that is it’s the value of digging
07:42
your well before you’re thirsty and what
07:45
I mean by that is you’ve got to go out
07:46
of your way to provide enough value to
07:48
people that when you need to call on a
07:50
favor it’s like a bank deposit you
07:52
literally have to have more money in
07:54
your bank than your will then you can
07:56
take out and you also always need to
07:58
make sure you leave a reserve there you
07:59
never want to be in a situation to where
08:01
your relationship is bankrupt and the
08:04
reason I tell you that is you’ve got to
08:05
make sure you’re always giving and
08:06
giving and giving and giving that giving
08:09
comes through so many different ways
08:10
sometimes it’s through an introduction
08:11
to somebody else others it’s just by
08:13
being yourself and providing value when
08:16
you talk to people and see people going
08:18
out of your way to help and lift other
08:19
people the value that gets created
08:22
through that is crazy crazy cool again
08:25
huge props to people Argus and Keith
08:28
Yackey for an amazing evening they went
08:30
out of their way and I think the
08:31
greatest part actually was just to see
08:33
what they were able to in three years by
08:35
providing massive value to so many
08:37
others so I’d encourage you guys to go
08:38
out and do the same provide value to as
08:40
many people as you possibly can we
08:43
Russell I were joking around about it
08:44
earlier today as far as the whole idea
08:46
here is even through a lot of the
08:48
content you can did to create the value
08:50
that gets out there that value what
08:52
through a podcast whether through a
08:53
Facebook live no matter what it is that
08:56
value gets sent out and people use it in
08:59
their life and you’ll find that by doing
09:02
those types of things and Russell’s
09:03
actually gonna have a one of his
09:06
presentation finally I can live is gonna
09:08
be about this topic about how to
09:09
actually use content in a way that
09:12
systematic creating massive value that
09:14
actually not only helps drive traffic
09:16
but it helps you build your business as
09:18
well so if you’re going to funnel
09:19
hacking live by all means check that out
09:21
if you’re not find someone who went and
09:23
get get their notes but bottom line is
09:26
it’s all about a value exchange profit
09:28
Keith and Pete and again I wish you guys
09:31
all the best in your business and
09:32
remember you’re just one funnel away you
09:35
know one of the things that means a ton
09:36
to me is the personal reviews that you
09:38

09:40

09:42

09:52
appreciate it and it’s my way of finding
09:53
out how I’m doing so if you don’t mind
09:54
