00:05

00:07
entrepreneurs are using to make more
00:09
sales dominate their markets and how you
00:12
can get those same results here is your
00:14
host Dave Woodward welcome back
00:17
everybody
00:18
this is gonna be kind of a weird podcast
00:20
from me this is a topic that you’re
00:24
gonna find out a little more personally
00:26
about me than I do not want to divulge a
00:29
lot of my own personal stuff so this is
00:31
gonna be a little different than some of
00:33
the other podcasts but so hold on we’re
00:35
gonna see if that can pull this together
00:36
make some sense of this and have it
00:38
actually help you in your marketing so
00:40
what I want to talk to you about is this
00:41
whole concept about how bad does it have
00:43
to get and what I mean by that is all of
00:47
us have our own level you know pain
00:50
tolerances or the kind of threshold as
00:53
far as before we reach out for help and
00:55
what I want to talk to you about is
00:56
something that happened to me personally
00:57
here over the last three months I’ve
01:02
worked with Terry Williams as a as a
01:05
coach for a long time and one of the
01:07
things she was telling me when we first
01:09
started coaching is Dave you gotta get
01:10
you got to let people know more about
01:12
you people want to connect more
01:14
personally with you and I just haven’t
01:16
been wanted typically I just don’t think
01:18
I’m that great I don’t think people
01:19
really care much about it I haven’t
01:20
spent much time really talking about
01:22
myself or things of that nature and so
01:25
I’m I told her I would I would try doing
01:27
more of that and so that’s kind of what
01:30
this podcast is about but it I promise
01:31
you also it will have meaning to you in
01:34
your own personal life so back in
01:36
October of 2017 I started realizing that
01:40
I was my my legs were we’re kind of
01:44
getting numb at times and and my back
01:45
was hurt and I was just I just thought
01:48
you know I’ve just got too much going on
01:49
I don’t have time to deal with this so I
01:51
was out at launch con and I went from
01:53
launch con 2 I’m living was on the road
01:55
for almost seven weeks non-stop and what
01:59
happened is my back kept getting worse
02:01
and worse and worse and worse to the
02:03
point where at our partner meeting we
02:05
had in early December I was running
02:07
across the crosswalk erm gimping across
02:09
the crosswalk and basically got to the
02:10
other side and
02:11
my legs collapse like what the heck is
02:14
going on with this thing so I then
02:16
started seeing chiropractors and
02:17
acupuncturist and did copy did all sorts
02:21
of massage and everything thinking I’ve
02:23
got to find some way of dealing with my
02:25
back and it got so bad to the point
02:28
where yeah towards the end of right
02:32
around Christmastime I literally I I was
02:35
in a van experiencing drop foot were my
02:36
my right foot I couldn’t I couldn’t pull
02:39
my right foot up and I’m like okay this
02:40
has gotten to the point where it’s bad
02:42
enough I really need to go and see a
02:43
doctor on this kind of stuff so I ended
02:46
up with physical therapy for a couple
02:48
weeks that didn’t work and the physical
02:50
therapist finally gave me a referral to
02:51
the the doc and I wouldn’t see this
02:53
doctor and right away he basically said
02:56
he didn’t even talk to me said what’s
02:58
going on with this drop foot thing and
02:59
I’m like I it’s just I don’t know it’s
03:01
it’s just I’ve pulled a muscle my back
03:04
probably or I got a disc out or I don’t
03:06
know I didn’t I’m not talking here doc
03:07
won’t figure this thing out because well
03:08
let me tell you if you don’t get this
03:10
thing fixed basically what the next
03:13
thing that happens is you’re gonna lose
03:14
function and control your bowels and
03:16
your bladder and everything else I’m
03:18
like what he goes yeah you’ve the
03:21
you shouldn’t have waited this long to
03:23
get this thing fixed I’m like listen doc
03:24
I really don’t want to go under the
03:25
knife I don’t want to have back surgery
03:27
what other options do I have it goes
03:29
right now Dave you don’t have any and it
03:33
goes you need to go in for MRI tomorrow
03:34
so I went in for an MRI calls that night
03:37
goes list I need to go in and for
03:38
another MRI the following day because we
03:40
saw something and there we really were
03:41
kind of concerned about and I’m like
03:43
what is going on so I went for the
03:45
second MRI and then he met me right
03:47
afterwards and said listen did the
03:50
reason I had to go in for a second MRI
03:52
is the first one we thought we we
03:54
thought there was a tumor in your spinal
03:55
cord there wasn’t which were grateful
03:57
for but you need to have surgery he says
04:00
have you had anything to eat today and I
04:01
said like I’ve had something to drink
04:03
and things and he goes well because
04:05
you’ve already ate something drink you
04:07
can’t get surgery today I’m like doc are
04:09
you kidding me and I said listen I’ve
04:10
got a trip with my family planned up to
04:12
McCall we’re going snowboarding and
04:15
snowmobiles everything else I said I’d
04:17
like to do this and then my son’s
04:18
getting married on in January on the
04:20
13th I said kind of push this off till
04:22
after that he goes no you don’t
04:24
understand how serious this is
04:25
and it gave these all these technical
04:27
terms and like bottom line they said you
04:30
don’t have a choice you have to have
04:32
surgery my doc there’s got to be ways so
04:34
I started pushing things off and he got
04:35
to the point where he almost surgeons
04:37
can yell him he said listen you
04:38
literally do not have a choice you’ve
04:40
you’ve pushed this off so hard and so
04:42
long and because of that you’re in a
04:45
situation where you’ve eliminated all
04:46
your other options besides surgery and I
04:49
said so what’s going on so basically
04:51
over years of just being super active in
04:54
your lumbar vertebrae l2 and l3 you
04:57
basically have your spinal cord your
04:59
your vertebrae are actually have created
05:01
bone spurs and are growing into your
05:02
spinal cord and decreasing the space for
05:05
your spinal cord to move that’s why
05:06
you’ve got the sciatica and your drop
05:07
foot and it’s really bad I’m like okay
05:11
so you finally convinced me so we go up
05:13
to McCall and while we’re at McCall
05:15
I am literally just laid out flat
05:17
couldn’t do hardly anything I’m totally
05:20
frustrated angry about this thing going
05:22

  • this is ridiculous where I put the
    05:23
    mounds of my family I want to spend time
    05:26
    time with them creating experiences and
    05:28
    doing that kind of stuff and it just
    05:29
    wasn’t gonna happen
    05:30
    so what end up happening was I ended up
    05:33
    going family staying up there my wife
    05:36
    took me down the fourth day of the
    05:39
    verification up there went down for
    05:41
    surgery and ended up having surgery and
    05:43
    where they kind of basically clean
    05:45
    cleaned up to two of my vertebrae and
    05:48
    hold my back I really hate the idea as
    05:51
    far as the whole back surgery thing but
    05:52
    it again I didn’t have a choice which
    05:54
    unfortunately right now I I’m walking
    05:57
    around great it’s a I’m tomorrow’s gonna
    05:59
    be one week after the surgery and it’s
    06:02
    been amazing my reason to mention this
    06:04
    whole thing is to bring to the point as
    06:07
    far as how bad does have to get before
    06:09
    you ask for help for me I just again I
    06:12
    just thought I figured all out of my own
    06:13
    and make it work but I got to the point
    06:17
    where I literally there was no other way
    06:19
    but I had to have surgery and I think as
    06:21
    as an entrepreneur especially as a
    06:23
    solopreneur I’ve done this myself where
    06:24
    you’re all by yourself and you’re just
    06:26
    dealing with all the you’re doing every
    06:28
    single thing you’re wearing all the hats
    06:29
    and you’re getting to the point where
    06:32
    you’re frustrated it’s not working
    06:33
    exactly how you think of it you don’t
    06:35
    want to quit and you feel like just keep
    06:36
    pushing forward something will change
    06:38
    and I just want to let you know that you
    06:40
    know there is nothing wrong for reaching
    06:43
    out for help and I think there’s a
    06:45
    fortunately inside of our clickfunnels
    06:47
    community there’s a ton of ways of
    06:48
    getting help we have the Facebook page
    06:51
    if you’re not on our Facebook page
    06:52
    please join our Facebook page and and
    06:56
    just understand that you can ask
    06:58
    questions from other people who are
    07:00
    already doing things and get help that
    07:01
    way another thing is the whole idea as
    07:04
    far as a mastermind I’m a huge huge
    07:06
    believer in a mastermind if you haven’t
    07:08
    read napoleon hill’s book three thinking
    07:10
    Grow Rich it’s an absolute must for
    07:11
    every entrepreneur and that is the whole
    07:13
    idea as far as understanding the value
    07:16
    of a mastermind and you don’t have to
    07:18
    spend twenty five thousand dollars to
    07:20
    join a high-end mastermind you literally
    07:21
    can create your own mastermind I
    07:23
    remember when I first got started I’d
    07:24
    end up creating a mastermind with myself
    07:26
    my brother and buddy of ours
    07:29
    Travis Tolstoy and the three of us would
    07:32
    mastermind every single week we
    07:34
    basically meet together for lunch and
    07:36
    each would take turns talking about
    07:38
    what’s working in our business what’s
    07:39
    not working in our business what types
    07:41
    of things and ideas and even though it
    07:42
    was just the three of us I was amazed at
    07:45
    the impact that of just having someone
    07:46
    else’s view into my world and things
    07:49
    that they were doing in their world and
    07:50
    how it helped me it gave me account
    07:53
    ability it gave me a sounding board I
    07:57
    basically sable said this is what I’m
    07:58
    doing I do you think this worked America
    08:00
    sometimes they had no idea but just my
    08:02
    verbalizing that to them made a ton of
    08:04
    sense it just seemed to help and work I
    08:06
    remember one of my very first projects
    08:09
    with in the internet marketing space
    08:12
    back in 2008-2009 was the legendary
    08:15
    marketers and I’ll tell you more of the
    08:17
    details about that some other time but
    08:19
    it was I remember I basically went
    08:21
    around the countryside filming all ten
    08:24
    of the most successful entrepreneur
    08:25
    internet marketers at that time it was
    08:27
    kind of a cribs MTV style type of thing
    08:30
    for these internet marketers and I
    08:33
    remember when I was me with Rick Raddatz
    08:35
    who at the time was had instant
    08:37
    teleseminar and was just kind of
    08:39
    crushing it with Enoch Mendoza Armand
    08:41
    Morin and just done a ton of stuff he
    08:43
    had a whole bunch of success and he had
    08:45
    ended up talking about the whole value
    08:47
    of a mastermind he says you know Dave
    08:49
    I’ve actually created masterminds here
    08:50
    in my local community with some of
    08:52
    super successful people who are aren’t
    08:54
    internet marketers there are outside
    08:56
    other businesses and he said for me I
    08:58
    was really nervous at first that I
    08:59
    didn’t have anything to provide for them
    09:02
    but the value I brought to the table is
    09:04
    actually just bringing others in and he
    09:06
    said you know because of that I was able
    09:08
    to connect with a lot of these guys and
    09:10
    they became great friends and in
    09:12
    addition to that it helped elevate my
    09:14
    own game and so I’d highly recommend
    09:16
    that if you are not involved in a
    09:18
    mastermind you need to get involved in
    09:19
    one you need to either start one or join
    09:22
    one and there’s benefits from doing both
    09:25
    if you don’t have any money and you feel
    09:27
    like gosh I don’t have any provide then
    09:28
    start your own locally just find people
    09:30
    and bring them in and it doesn’t need to
    09:33
    be as you know structured organized as
    09:36
    much as it needs to be set on an
    09:38
    accountability standpoint and where you
    09:40
    you meet on a regular basis if you want
    09:43
    to join a mastermind there’s a ton of
    09:44
    different masterminds out there there’s
    09:46
    coaching programs and find out what is
    09:49
    that what area do you need the most help
    09:51
    in this year and focus in on that one
    09:53
    need and join a mastermind for or a
    09:55
    coaching program for that realize that
    09:57
    there’s so many things out there as

    10:09
    other ones that you can find depending
    10:11
    on the niche and the industry that
    10:12
    you’re in and realize that the whole
    10:15
    idea here is don’t wait till it gets so
    10:19
    bad that you literally have to have
    10:21
    surgery in your business where you have
    10:23
    to cut things off and and go to
    10:25
    something super drastic realize that
    10:27

    afraid to reach out don’t be afraid to
    10:41
    go get help it’s not a sign of weakness
    10:43
    I know as a as an entrepreneur we all
    10:46
    especially as a solopreneur you just
    10:47
    just you first getting started you want
    10:49
    to where everything it’s kind of a whole
    10:51
    control freak thing I’ve been there I
    10:53
    know how that is and I’ve actually was
    10:56
    funny I was talking with Melanie just
    10:57
    yesterday we’ve got James real here in
    10:59
    our office who’s helping us systematize
    11:01
    a whole bunch of things and Melanie
    11:04
    Russell’s a system basically
    11:06
    I don’t think she’s she she’s a control
    11:09
    freak and that’s why she does a great
    11:10
    job at what she does but she came to my
    11:12
    office hey you’re so proud of me I’ve
    11:14
    I’ve delegated two things today to other
    11:16
    people to let them run with it and
    11:18
    sometimes you just have to do that I
    11:20
    again as an entrepreneur one of the most
    11:22
    important things is you got to make that
    11:23
    first hire so maybe that’s where you’re
    11:25
    at in your business and the first way of
    11:28
    making sure that doesn’t get so bad that
    11:30
    you have to have surgery is to go out
    11:31
    and get that first hire find something
    11:33
    that will free you up if you’re doing
    11:35
    $10 an hour type of stuff pay someone
    11:37
    else to do that that is one very first
    11:40
    things I realized in my own business
    11:41
    that helped me do a ton and I’m still
    11:43
    trying to do more and more of that this
    11:45
    year is to where an outsourcing as much
    11:47
    as I possibly can steal our meat ooh
    11:49
    focus in on my unique set of skills that
    11:52
    helps me in my opportunities here with
    11:55
    clickfunnels to really grow and build
    11:57
    and help us double click funnels this
    11:59
    year so realize every single one of us
    12:01
    no matter where you’re at in your
    12:02
    business there’s certain things that you
    12:04
    can do another great podcast I recommend
    12:07
    is Alex sharpens momentum again as far
    12:11
    as the whole idea as far as an
    12:11
    entrepreneur there’s a ton of them out
    12:13
    there but realize go out and get help
    12:15
    this year make it this year is your year
    12:17
    where you can make the massive changes
    12:19
    so that doesn’t have to get so bad that
    12:21
    you live about to get surgery or a file
    12:23
    for bankruptcy or do something else like
    12:24
    that just because you were just set to
    12:27
    control freak that you didn’t want to
    12:29
    reach out and let others help you so
    12:31
    many other people are out there and
    12:32
    again you’ll find as you have more
    12:34
    success in your own life one of the
    12:35
    things you’re going to do is to
    12:36
    contribute and to give back and if your
    12:39
    that’s the point you’re at help others
    12:40
    who are wanting to become like you so
    12:43
