00:01

What’s up everybody, it’s Russell Brunson

00:02

and welcome back to the Marketing Secrets podcast.

00:04

I hope that yesterday you had a good time

00:06

hanging out with Gary Vee.

00:08

So just puts perspective, his speaker fees

00:11

to come to something like this is about a hundred grand.

00:13

And you guys had a chance to hear it here, for free.

00:16

So what’s that mean?

00:18

Number one, it means that this podcast is awesome.

00:21

Do you agree?

00:21

Do you agree?

00:23

If you guys agree and you concur,

00:24

then I ask you just one little favor.

00:25

Tell other people about it.

00:27

If you’ve got an email list, tell 'em.

00:28

If you post on Facebook, let people know.

00:29

Like I spent a hundred grand to give you two podcasts

00:31

and you get him for free because I love you

00:33

and I care about you and I want you to be successful.

00:34

So, I hope you get something good out of it.

00:36

Again, every time I hear Gary speak I get more

00:37

pumped up and motivated and excited.

00:40

I don’t know if he ever gives the tangibles like

00:42

‘here’s the steps to do’, but that’s my role.

00:44

That’s what I do for you guys.

00:45

So I’ll give you the tangible,

00:46

here’s the process, and Gary will get you pumped up.

00:48

So I hope that’s okay.

00:49

With that said we’re going to jump in

00:51

to part two of his presentation.

00:53

Once again we’ve edited out as much profanity

00:56

as possible to make this PG, maybe PG-13.

01:00

So that my podcast can stay clean for all the kids

01:02

and the people like me who like to listen to clean things.

01:05

I hope that’s alright.

01:07

Anyway, with that said, you guys enjoy

01:08

part two of the Gary Vee show.

01:10

  • Guys, nobody remembers the part where Michael Jordan

01:13

couldn’t get to the finals cause the Pistons were

01:16

beating them every single time.

01:18

  • [Male Offscreen] Isaiah Thomas.

01:19

  • You know what I mean?

01:20

Guys, let me really unleash you doing more

01:22

(bleep expletive)

01:23

Nobody remembers the losses.

01:27

As long as you have a win.

01:30

  • Is there any trends that you see or platforms

01:33

or any advice that you see with women entrepreneurs

01:35

primarily, my age, thirties, forties?

01:38

  • Yeah, so the thing, you know it’s funny, Katie, right?

01:42

Hey, hi.

01:43

(crowd laughs)

01:45

Katie said the most important part,

01:47

I’ve become unbelievably fascinated and empathetic

01:50

about the difference between men and women, you know.

01:54

I’m super fascinated by it from a business standpoint.

01:56

That’s my lens to the world.

01:58

It’s harder to be one hundred percent yourself

02:01

when you’re a woman than a man.

02:03

I genuinely believe that because men are dick faces.

02:07

Right?

02:08

And so, the answer to your question is to be

02:12

one hundred percent, radically, transparently you.

02:16

I’m also massively empathetic how that’s difficult

02:19

for everybody, especially attractive women.

02:22

  • How do you balance work and family?

02:26

How do you do it?

02:28

  • By first and foremost not adhering to the current

02:31

state of political correctness that everybody here

02:33

has deployed on me.

02:35

Most of all, right.

02:37

And second, extremism.

02:40

I almost took the whole entire month of August off.

02:42

Like I go all in, right.

02:45

When I’m in this,

02:47

like Monday through Friday, I do not see

02:48

my kids pretty much at all.

02:51

Thirty nine weeks of the fifty two weeks in the year.

02:54

Just what it is.

02:56

And then on weekends and seven weeks, eight weeks

02:59

of vacation a year I’m all in the other way.

03:02

That’s how I do it.

03:03

For me.

03:04

But that is only uniquely going to work if me

03:06

and my partner in crime are aligned on that strategy,

03:10

audit that strategy every day.

03:11

By the way, I don’t even want to do it anymore.

03:13

As now they are eight and five and not five and two,

03:16

they’re just more interesting to be around.

03:19

You know?

03:20

(crowd laughs)

03:21

So, for example, I guarantee you in 24 more months,

03:26

this exact trip, they’re here and we go to see

03:31

the Grand Canyon or something.

03:36

I’m so sad that so many people do

03:39

certain things in parenting because that’s what

03:42

the other parents think they should be doing.

03:44

Like, I don’t know.

03:47

I just wanna make a very important statement

03:49

that I implore every parent in this room understands.

03:52

Everything that is right in parenting right now,

03:55

by the common standards, will not be in 20 years.

04:00

You’re going to be judged one way or the other.

04:02

  • When you grow rapidly, how do you embed the culture

04:06

to make sure that it grows with the right people?

04:09

So we built values, manifestos…

04:10

  • Ready?

04:11

Ready?

04:12

How do you get muscles by doing pushups?

04:18

  • You do it consistently every day.

04:21

  • I spend an ungodly amount of my time on HR.

04:25

Now, I have 800 employees.

04:27

Next year I’m going to mandate that I see every one

04:31

of my employees every month for 15 minutes.

04:33

Which is going to eat up BIG amounts of time.

04:37

  • So literally you’ve taken that one one.

04:39

  • The math is daunting.

04:40

  • When I do the one-on-one time it always works.

04:42

But I’m just thinking now from scale at the same point.

04:45

  • Scaling the unscalable is how you build long term wealth.

04:51

  • (bleep) dude, that’s a good one.

04:52

  • Thanks bro.

04:54

I didn’t get up here for no rooks.

04:57

  • Now we know why you get paid to stand up there.

05:00

My second question was, okay, as you grow

05:03

obviously you’ve got haters.

05:05

I’m sure that people don’t like you and whatever.

05:07

  • Sure.

05:08

  • So I always focus on the mission and the vision

05:10

and the people that we’re helping, right?

05:11

But when you get certain people, I mean it still

05:13

affects me when I…

05:14

  • Of course.

05:16

  • So, how do you overcome that so you can keep growing?

05:18

  • Empathy.

05:20

  • For them?

05:21

  • Yes.

05:22

  • And just for their life circumstances?

05:23

  • Sure.

05:25

If a human being can generate hate,

05:27

they’re not in a good place.

05:30

  • Okay.

05:31

So what do you do mentally, in mindset,

05:34

to just keep going?

05:36

  • I deploy gratitude that I’m not them.

05:38

  • I feel like an entrepreneur on accident, honestly.

05:41

And the thing that I love to do is the business

05:44

that I do that’s making me money.

05:45

But recently I’ve started being way more vulnerable

05:47

about the whole chip on the shoulder thing and

05:50

in telling my story.

05:52

And that’s resonating with a lot of people.

05:55

And that is (bleep) hard.

05:56

I hate doing that.

05:58

I’m very introverted.

05:59

I don’t like being out there that much

06:03

but that’s what seems to be making the biggest impact.

06:05

  • I have great news.

06:07

That’s binary.

06:09

Either you do more of it and you get used to it,

06:11

and like everything in life, once you get used to it

06:14

it just becomes your norm and you didn’t realize it.

06:16

Now you may never be the most extroverted.

06:19

Everybody here can be a better singer, dancer,

06:22

basketball player.

06:23

They may not become Lebron, but if you do it

06:25

every day, you get better.

06:27

You keep putting yourself out there every day,

06:28

you’ll get better.

06:30

So you can either choose to do that

06:32

or you can say I don’t like it.

06:34

I’ll leave the money on the table

06:35

cause I love the privacy and the private life

06:37

and not having to engage, and you do that.

06:40

It’s your choice.

06:41

You’re in charge.

06:43

  • Are you an advocate for doing what’s harder though?

06:46

  • I’m an advocate on doing what you want to do.

06:50

Not because I said so or your friend said so.

06:54

I’m an advocate of you doing what you want to be doing.

06:57

But I always encourage to taste more.

07:00

Cause it works.

07:01

Do you know how many people here hate oysters

07:05

but have never had one?

07:07

(audience laughing)

07:09

I think about that (bleep) every day.

07:11

(audience laughing)

07:12

That’s how I think about business.

07:14

Like you’ve made a judgment on something

07:17

yet you’ve never done it.

07:18

I already know you’re going to do more of it

07:20

because you’ve already done the hardest part.

07:21

Which is you’ve done it.

07:22

  • Just really quickly.

07:24

Is there anything that is hard for you?

07:25

(Gary laughs)

07:27

Your mindset, the way that you think about things,

07:30

you’re like ‘I am confident and I can do this’.

07:31

But is it hard…

07:32

  • Yes, yes.

07:34

  • …to get up sometimes in the morning sometimes.

07:35

  • No. Nope.

07:37

Spelling is (bleep) impossible.

07:39

(crowd laughing)

07:40

  • I can’t read for (bleep).

07:42

If I was reading from a teleprompter right now

07:44

I would crumble and be out of here.

07:47

Can’t read for (bleep).

07:49

Like, you know, fencing, probably is hard.

07:53

(crowd laughing)

07:54

I’m really way below average in swimming.

07:57

Poor swimmer.

07:58

I always think like, (bleep) I’ll be super pissed

08:01

if I die…

08:02

We get (bleep) up,

08:03

and if I have to swim further then everybody.

08:08

Yeah, there’s (bleep).

08:09

You’re asking me that, as somebody who knows a lot

08:11

about me, because I don’t spend any time on it.

08:15

We all suck at (bleep).

08:18

So like I don’t care how you judge mine,

08:21

you’ve got (bleep) too.

08:22

So because I don’t care about that,

08:24

the only reason people spend time on their weaknesses

08:26

is because it’s everybody else’s opinion on it

08:29

that they’re trying to avoid.

08:31

I don’t care about your opinion about my weakness

08:32

cause I know you’ve got them too.

08:34

So let’s just move on.

08:35
