then he ended up stealing someone’s

00:01

identity they stole his mom’s identity

00:02

police ended by grading his house he

00:04

fled the country and then the last

00:06

message we all got he’s like

00:10

russell paid to sell your product

00:13

i love this guy honestly the

00:15

entrepreneurs are the only people that

00:16

can actually change this planet

00:20

so when i got started in this game i was

00:22

going to school at boise state in boise

00:23

state my wife and i just got married and

00:25

uh

00:25

i was broke she was supporting us i was

00:27

trying to figure things out and so i

00:29

would spend half my time

00:30

about half my time the third of my time

00:31

in school through my time wrestling the

00:32

third time like

00:33

in and out of the computer labs trying

00:34

to figure out how to play this game

00:36

and i remember there was this young kid

00:38

from singapore named joe kumar anyone

00:41

remember this remember joe kumar

00:44

joe kumar was like an 18 year old kid

00:46

who came on the internet marketing scene

00:48

his very first idea he’s like what if i

00:50

interview all these internet

00:51

gurus whatever you want to call them and

00:53

ask him a question and the question he

00:55

asked is may sound familiar to some of

00:56

you guys here in a second

00:57

he said if you were to lose everything

00:59

if you lost your big fancy internet

01:01

marketing name you lost your email list

01:02

your jv partners and everything all you

01:04

had left

01:05

was your knowledge and the internet

01:07

connection for 30 days what would you

01:08

do from day number one today 30 to save

01:10

yourself and that was a question and he

01:12

asked a whole bunch of people and ended

01:13

up getting their answers and combining

01:15

them into two ebooks

01:17

and i read the headline and then it was

01:19

like there’s 60 people who had their

01:20

step-by-step 30-day plans

01:22

and how they would start over if they

01:23

were if they lost everything how they

01:24

started from scratch

01:25

i think it was 97 bucks for his ebook

01:27

and i had never bought an ebook

01:28

this is before amazon had ebooks ebooks

01:30

weren’t a thing i was confused

01:32

but it sounded like the hook like i was

01:34

in and there’s like 60 people

01:36

like 60 gurus he’d interviewed all these

01:37

ebooks so clint and i had been married

01:39

for less than a year

01:40

i remember i got the 97 on a credit card

01:42

which was again

01:43

more money than i had bought the thing

01:45

and then i got an e-book and again i was

01:46

confused so i took it to kinko’s to

01:48

print

01:48

it was like a thousand pages and i would

01:50

print a thousand pages it’s gonna cost

01:51

you like

01:52

a couple hundred bucks i was like oh so

01:54

i took the thing shrunk it so basically

01:56

there’d be 12

01:57

pages on each page so i could afford to

01:59

actually do it

02:00

so i printed it out uh so the page is

02:03

like this tiny

02:04

and uh and i printed it and i bound them

02:05

in this folder and then we went on our

02:08

one year anniversary we went to hawaii

02:11

so i had these two my own books and i’m

02:12

reading them like this page these little

02:14

tiny pages

02:15

um on the flight over there and then in

02:16

hawaii on the way back and i make

02:17

circling things and like freaking out

02:19

and it was interesting i read the very

02:20

first person’s plan it was like oh my

02:22

gosh it’s amazing the second person’s

02:23

the third and i started realizing that

02:25

everybody’s plans were similar they all

02:27

had their intricacies and their

02:28

differences but all of them were

02:29

basically

02:29

you have a product you got to sell the

02:31

product then you got to traffic the

02:32

product

02:33

and somewhere between like plan 18 and

02:35

plan 40 or 50. i was like

02:37

all i need to do is create a product

02:38

have a way to sell the product and then

02:39

drive traffic the product like i finally

02:41

got it right

02:41

anyway so i got all excited this is the

02:43

part where he scammed everyone he came

02:45

out and he was like hey if you want

02:46

recent rights to my ebook it’s 500 bucks

02:48

i’m only going to sell to 10 people and

02:50

i was like

02:50

what freaking out i don’t have 500 bucks

02:53

but i have a credit card so i called the

02:55

bank had him

02:56

increased my thing by 500 bucks i went

02:57

and bought the resale right now i was

02:58

gonna be one of ten people to sell this

02:59

product i was gonna make millions

03:01

like the vision was there uh turns out

03:03

he didn’t sell to 10 people he sold it

03:04

to

03:05

thousands of people like everybody on

03:07

planet earth was like this is

03:08

there’s only 10 people this is gonna be

03:10

great seeing the world he sold tons and

03:11

tons and tons of tons

03:12

then he ended up stealing someone’s

03:14

identity and he stole his mom’s identity

03:15

and all his craziness and then

03:16

the singapore police ended up like

03:18

raiding his house he fled the country

03:20

and then the last message we all got do

03:22

you remember this the last message

03:23

he’s like hey everybody if you think

03:25

those other people’s 38 plans are good

03:27

mine’s the best i’m writing it right now

03:29

and if you want a copy of it all you

03:30

need to do is fax a picture of your

03:32

passport

03:34

and whatever to this number and uh

03:36

wiring information or something to this

03:38

number and i’ll send you copy my book

03:40

and that was last we all heard joe kumar

03:42

he’s gone last i heard the police are

03:44

still on his hunt

03:45

he may be on this boat maybe we don’t

03:46

even know

03:48

anyway so

03:51

there’s the joker so there’s a little

03:53

long story so now fast forward 15 years

03:55

later and i was like

03:56

oh my gosh that was the greatest hook of

03:57

all time what if

03:59

i use that hook

04:02

he’s not gonna sue me because if he

04:04

comes out he’s gonna

04:07

go yep

04:11

no no the real story i was actually in a

04:14

decade-day call from later circle

04:15

members and they were having an idea and

04:17

i was like

04:17

what you should do i told the story joe

04:19

kumar might in your industry you should

04:20

do this

04:21

and then as i’m sitting there talking to

04:22

him i was like oh my gosh i should do

04:24

this

04:25

i went and i looked 30days.com and it

04:27

was

04:28

04:29

04:33

04:47

greatest domain name of all time

04:51

would you do

04:52

imagine this you suddenly lose

04:54

everything your money your name your

04:56

reputation you have bills piled high and

04:58

people harassing you for money over the

04:59

phone

05:00

and all you have left is a click funnels

05:02

account and internet access for 30 days

05:06

what’s cool about this is i was able to

05:07

go ask 30 different people who all wrote

05:08

their plans like this would be my

05:10

framework of how i get back on on top

05:12

right so we have this really cool

05:13

framework and and we used it okay but

05:15

i’ll let this question of

05:16

if you you know based on where you’re

05:17

right now if you lost everything would

05:18

be the step-by-step process to get back

05:20

in 30 days or 60 days or a year whatever

05:22

the timeline you wanna you wanna have

05:24

right

05:24

but how powerful of a framework is that

05:26

for a question

05:27

to drive a framework right how many guys

05:29

in your business right now could

05:30

literally

05:31

tonight send an email to your list or do

05:33

a social profile that who here would be

05:34

interested if i would lose everything

05:36

today

05:37

05:38

gained 400 pounds last night on the

05:40

cruise ship

05:41

and i got to start i’ve got 30 days so

05:42

funnel hacking live with my step-by-step

05:44

process to get back

05:45

in shape right or the stock market’s

05:47

crashed i lost my entire investment

05:48

portfolio and i started from scratch

05:50

right now

05:50

at 30 what would i do what would i

05:51

invest in where would i go how many guys

05:52

05:59

what would i do to get back and compete

06:00

you know whatever it is right

06:01

i always take that framework of here’s

06:03

where i’m right now if i lost it all

06:05

would be the step-by-step process to get

06:06

back to where i was at in a certain

06:07

amount of amount of time

06:08

this has become a huge multi-million

06:10

dollar year business for us this alone

06:11

could be our business

06:12

the question leads the framework and the

06:14

framework can be your front end middle

06:16

value ladder back and like it doesn’t

06:17

have to be something we’re super

06:18

creative he doesn’t have to build 500

06:19

frameworks be successful like you just

06:20

06:21

and learn how to leverage it in each of

06:22
