01:11
right it I’m so excited for this is Joe
01:14
up first of all tell Elizabeth about
01:15
yourself and did what I really want to
01:16
do is I want you to die emitted tell
01:18
people how you actually got to funnel
01:20
hockey live and how you got CSC so first
01:22
give a little background and definitely
01:23
get props to your dad all right so I’ve
01:26
grown up around my dad knew is a serial
01:29
entrepreneur he is most amazing guy
01:31
you’ll ever meet he’s such an
01:34
inspiration to me and I’ve been really
01:36
blessed to grow up around that and the
01:39
opportunities that have come from just
01:41
being surrounded by my dad so very
01:44
thankful for my dad I grew up in
01:46
Springfield Missouri and I started a
01:49
small business when i was 12 i went to
01:52
public school at my ninth year in high
01:56
school and everyone was going to diner
01:58
Jeannie and I realized that they were a
02:00
hundred twenty dollars I I could totally
02:03
find them cheaper somewhere else and
02:05
sell them to the kids at my school so I
02:07
found out that they were cool in
02:09
California ten years before they were
02:12
cool in Springfield
02:13
Yeah right so I got on craigslist and I
02:18
started buying my by like eight to nine
02:21
pairs of these designer jeans for a
02:23
hundred bucks and they ship them to me
02:25
and I pan through paypal and then I’d
02:28
sell them for like 80 bucks a pair at my
02:31
high school so that was kind of my kick
02:33
off and I was I had been doing some flea
02:35
market and garage sling stuff at like 12
02:37
and then I started making the clothing
02:40
thing into business at 14 and that was
02:42
called me he got eight here for a
02:44
hundred bucks you sold each of them for
02:45
80 yeah that was about the average
02:48
that’s pretty good for a minute taking a
02:51
hundred bucks and turn it into 600 700
02:52
bucks that’s pretty sweet it was awesome
02:54
and I put it all into my horses so I
03:00
everything that I’ve done my parents
03:02
have been great about if you want to do
03:04
it you got to find a way to make it
03:05
happen so I wanted a rodeo so that’s
03:08
that’s how I made that happen was the
03:10
business but so then I I’d start doing
03:13
that I put a name to it started using
03:16
multiple online platforms and created
03:20
you know business that started I didn’t
03:23
have to go out and find people anymore
03:25
to buy their stuff they were bringing it
03:27
to me because everyone knew I was doing
03:29
it and that was kind of my first
03:31
experience with running my own things
03:33
and then I went to T&C; last year by debs
03:38
like I have an extra ticket you want to
03:39
go yeah I want to go he’s a grabs give
03:42
the school Oh which is cool that’s not a
03:45
problem yeah right of course all skip a
03:49
week of school to go to California and a
03:52
TNC I met Brad heart at a after party
03:57
and Brad heart owns make more marbles
04:01
and market your course and we just had
04:04
like a 20-minute conversation became
04:06
friends on facebook and then two months
04:09
later he put something on facebook that
04:11
he was looking for someone that he can
04:13
mentor and kind of sheets what he was
04:15
doing too so I jumped onto that and been
04:18
doing that for I guess eight months of
04:21
grad and been amazing he is my mentor my
04:25
friend
04:26
in my boss he’s awesome so how did the
04:32
conference’s started was he was like
04:34
I’ve got this ticket to the clickfunnels
04:37
event or at two of them if you can sell
04:40
the other one then you can have the
04:41
other one for free so I found someone to
04:45
buy the other one so i sold it and i had
04:47
the other one for free and at the same
04:50
time i was trying to get to TMZ again
04:52
this year cuz I’d my dad he’s like I’m
04:55
taking four of my four five of my my
04:58
team this year so I can’t take you and
05:01
what alright I will make it happen
05:04
myself since so every single person and
05:07
I met last year i emailed and I was like
05:11
hey this is what I’m doing I’m trying to
05:13
get out there but I have no money
05:14
because I mean I’m a debt from college
05:17
can we find a way that I can literally
05:20
do anything to get out there I would do
05:22
anything if I could you know help out
05:24
whatever and I got connected with Deanna
05:27
Rogers the event coordinator and we
05:30
worked out a way that I came and helped
05:32
for a couple days in exchange for a
05:34
ticket and made that happen and then but
05:38
the flights and everything else I wanted
05:40
covered in the lodging so I teamed up
05:43
with my friends just as crazy he was
05:46
also a student here and we started
05:49
selling sponsorship st. and trying to
05:52
figure out how we could make some money
05:55
but also provide value to businesses
05:56
around Fayetteville and this isn’t this
06:01
is a little more than just an intro to
06:02
me kind of whole story sorry but yeah so
06:08
we started going around and offering
06:12
what we learned will sit down with your
06:14
marketing team and tell them everything
06:15
we learned give you all the top stuff
06:16
that’s coming out and you know we had
06:19
some ups and downs value had people say
06:21
that they’d give us money and that they
06:22
want to do it and then you know that
06:24
didn’t end up going through so that was
06:27
my first time really learning about you
06:28
know Gotye money on the spot no so we
06:33
learned some stuff through that but all
06:34
of those relationships that we formed
06:36
over a month doing that now every
06:40
interested in opportunity that kind of
06:44
ended there i have opened up again in
06:47
new ways so that’s really exciting and
06:49
at T&C; i met even more people that are
06:52
trying to get me to their conferences
06:53
and the conferences are great because
06:55
i’m meeting all of these often people
06:56
i’m learning a lot well in any way more
06:59
than i am in school so it’s been awesome
07:02
so I want to make sure i’d extend it
07:04
says i’ll talk to your dad basically it
07:06
sounded like you actually got sponsored
07:08
come out to T&C; and actually I money on
07:11
the deal so you got a free ticket and
07:13
some of the local businesses actually
07:15
ended up paying for you to travel out
07:17
there in exchange for your coming back
07:18
and teaching them all right yeah yeah we
07:21
have to so we probably only had about
07:24
five sit-down meetings and two of those
07:28
are people that are paying us to go out
07:31
there so it was the greatest I think to
07:35
one of them we’re kind of doing like a
07:37
deal where instead of me teaching her
07:40
marketing team to do it like I rather
07:41
you do it I’m going to do some of her
07:45
reputation management stuff that my dad
07:47
offered me so he’s like I’ll give you
07:49
money to go out there so I think that
07:51
deals like three hundred dollars around
07:55
three hundred dollar so that paid for
07:56
the whole flight and then another
07:58
company they are kind of like the same
08:02
deal it’s like they’re creating the
08:04
opportunity so that actually is an
08:06
exchange so it’s not covered that this
08:09
company i’m obsessed with and it’s a
08:11
clothing company and they give me all of
08:14
these three tickets through all of their
08:16
events their concerts there yoga parties
08:19
so that was kind of just like a bonus
08:22
you know so um okay like how can i did
08:26
some of the view things without you know
08:27
having to spend the money so that was
08:30
kind of just a cool side thingy but ya
08:34
know it’s been really awesome so one of
08:37
the things i want to make sure is the
08:37
people listen to this we talk a lot
08:39
about funnel hacking on this i know you
08:41
been to funnel hacking lives your body’s
08:42
you know if we do but the main thing i’m
08:45
super excited about is this whole
08:46
entrepreneurial hacking i get so many
08:48
times people said okay i do it but this
08:51
and i always get a ton of excuses and
08:53
what
08:54
things i love we’re not talking there in
08:55
san diego was you basically do not see
08:58
excuses at all in any part of your life
09:00
it’s more of an opportunity to how you
09:02
can actually make it happen and so I
09:03
love love seeing the different things
09:05
that you’ve been doing as far as finding
09:07
a ways of actually taking action making
09:09
sure that thing’s actually takes place
09:10
in your life so I get asked all the time
09:12
well gosh you know I wish I could go to
09:14
the advantage can’t make it realize that
09:16
what does things you did such a great
09:18
job that is going down to local business
09:20
owners and basically tell them and hey
09:21
listen i would go ahead and all attend
09:24
the event for you in exchange for you
09:26
best be paying paying my way out there i
09:28
actually I mean that I know three other
09:30
people’s done the exact same thing where
09:33
they really have any that’s why when
09:35
your dad when Kris was telling me about
09:36
it Mike oh my gosh I’ve had this
09:38
conversation with three other people but
09:39
I want to make sure i guess you on one
09:41
because of your youth and your
09:43
excitement your bigger but really with
09:45
the idea of understanding it does not
09:47
matter what the excuses there is always
09:49
a way if there’s a strong enough why and
09:51
I yeah I thought it was just so cool
09:53
that you were basically said you know
09:55
what obviously could you’re down to
09:56
place it gets yeah yes but I think as a
09:58
parent it is so cool to see the way he
10:00
talked to you the importance of having
10:02
entrepreneurial insight and finding
10:05
different ways of making that happen you
10:07
know that’s fun to actually live I have
10:08
the opportunity it’s obviously emblems
10:09
on stage and caleb is on stage and it’s
10:11
time you went crazy and they saw them
10:13
and they’re gonna be on some later
10:14
episodes but I wanted their enjoyment
10:16
yeah they are they’re both amazing
10:18
amazing people but I think it’s really
10:20
neat to see as a parent as far as how
10:22
you can have to teach your kids
10:23
different things but most importantly as
10:25
and one of the things you’ve done a
10:27
great job Savannah is understanding as
10:30
an entrepreneur what that actually means
10:31
could be an entrepreneur and how you go
10:33
ahead and you find different ways of
10:35
overcoming whatever that obstacle is we
10:38
we were joking around about the other
10:40
day here is that the speed at which we
10:43
do think here at cliff bottles is pretty
10:45
crazy we get people all the time safe
10:46
gosh you know what how you doing this in
10:48
honesty for us there’s just no other
10:49
option these are the things that have to
10:51
get done and for you to find some way of
10:53
getting it done where I at least in the
10:55
book whether it’s putting together
10:56
following weather whatever it is we’re
10:58
going to find some way making sure
10:59
everything happens and it’s really easy
11:01
to say well that they go very well and
11:03
you sit back and you get angry and get
11:04
frustrated and things don’t work your
11:06
life get old
11:07
get over that as fast as you possibly
11:09
can and move forward as quickly as you
11:12
can to the very next thing which brings
11:14
this next topic which i think is really
11:16
cool and that is one of the things so
11:19
again you’re a freshman at sip at the
11:22
University of Arkansas there at in
11:23
Fayetteville and you’re tending the
11:25
course in lips of course I guess tell us
11:28
a little bit about that story of what it
11:30
led into of what course if your your was
11:34
an English course or I pretty face or
11:36
your yes yeah so I had to take an
11:41
English course and I wasn’t too excited
11:43
about it because I’ve never enjoyed
11:44
riding in my entire life I used to go to
11:46
class cool School private school and it
11:49
was destroyed my creative side of
11:52
writing night but didn’t know that I
11:53
could fall back in love with it but um
11:55
there’s 300 english1 courses and I was
11:59
lucky enough to be in one of the five
12:01
pilot course it is where instead of
12:03
giving the students scoring literature
12:04
having them read it and then write about
12:07
it they gave us the opportunity to find
12:10
a community study the community sit back
12:12
listen and analyze it and then write
12:14
about it so I which this is awesome
12:17
because I’m already planning on diving
12:19
into the entrepreneurial community here
12:21
in Fayetteville Arkansas so this is
12:23
perfect I can do the same thing and get
12:24
a grade for it so I feel like it’s not
12:26
even work it was awesome I went ahead
12:29
and just interviewed all the
12:31
entrepreneurs around Fayetteville and
12:32
wrote their stories and I it was great
12:36
because for the first time I’m a
12:38
talkative person and I really love
12:40
talking and meeting people and so for
12:44
the first time I was I was I really had
12:48
to step back and ask questions and just
12:50
listen and just shut up and listen and
12:54
hear other people’s stories and that was
12:57
awesome so I put that into a blog for my
13:01
final and I got a hundred percent on it
13:02
my English teacher said I’ve been here
13:05
13 years and I’ve never given any one
13:07
hundred percent on anything before but
13:08
this just deserved that grade because of
13:11
what you’re doing and so we sent it to
13:13
the journalism Department and who they
13:15
send out their you know their email with
13:16
their daily newsletter so they’re
13:19
planning on sending it out once i get in
13:21
post on there not scenarios to really
13:24
show the community that we live in
13:25
soccer that semester courses over i
13:29
decided well I don’t have any guidelines
13:31
now I could totally run with this high
13:33
one and run with it and I really have a
13:36
strong desire to show my friends and
13:38
people my age that there’s more than the
13:42
925 because I’ve been blessed enough to
13:44
grow up around the opposite of that and
13:48
to see that there is more than your
13:50
pants getting up at six o’clock taking
13:52
you to school and then you don’t see
13:54
them until they get home you know that
13:56
lifestyle and I really have a strong
14:00
passion for your sharing with kids my
14:03
age like you can you can totally go out
14:05
and learn something new you don’t have
14:06
to follow what society says your whole
14:09
life you can you can do it on thanks
14:11
follow your passion and my mentor and
14:14
boss Bret Hart so he’s like if you just
14:16
jump off the cliff you’re going to find
14:18
a way to build the airplane on the way
14:19
down I promise you and that has been so
14:23
true every single time I do something
14:25
that is kind of scary it ends up working
14:27
out because I figure out a way to do it
14:29
so I wasn’t ok thank you I appreciate
14:32
that and so that’s what I’m doing right
14:35
now I’m interviewing auctioneers and
14:37
tailoring their advice towards college
14:39
case you know in the real world this is
14:41
how you can follow your passions and how
14:44
you can find a passion and your purpose
14:45
and what fulfills you and that’s what
14:47
I’m working on right now so I’m pretty
14:49
excited about it it’s I’ve kind of been
14:52
a teensy they said that you shouldn’t
14:55
hoard your blog posts but that’s what
14:56
having a thousands of the knife right
14:58
now I’m just starting so but i’m still
15:00
forwarding them to myself and then once
15:02
i get between 20 and 25 which is what’s
15:05
one recommended then i’m going to
15:07
release that out and see where it goes I
15:10
think that’s great I know within the
15:12
dot-com secrets book and the
15:13
soon-to-be-released expert secrets book
15:15
one of these Russell talks a lot about
15:17
is the attractive character and really
15:19
there’s four different identities one
15:20
being the leader second kind of more
15:22
these you know did venture the Crusader
15:24
the third one being the reporter
15:25
evangelist for the fourth one being the
15:26
reluctant hero I started off in internet
15:29
marketing same way you basically happens
15:31
that reported that evangelist and I
15:32
think that it sucks it easy way of
15:34
getting going
15:35
I love your idea as far as just going
15:36
out and being a reporter finding
15:38
different people’s stories and telling
15:40
those stories and as you tell those
15:41
stories it actually builds you up is
15:43
this attractive character where people
15:44
want to find out more about you and
15:45
sometimes really what it’s attractive
15:47
made it to getting your story here on
15:49
this podcast is making sure that people
15:51
understand how easy it is to get going i
15:54
run across so many people have so many
15:57
excuses and sivanna one of things I’ve
15:58
loved about you is you just don’t think
16:00
there are no excuses for you as you’ve
16:02
just met you know you’re going to find a
16:03
way of either building a parachute or
16:04
I’ll build in the plane as you set your
16:06
falling down the cliff so I think that’s
16:09
very cool thing any other advice or tips
16:10
that you’d give to other entrepreneurs
16:12
who are listening to our funnel a crater
16:13
podcast here I would say read and I know
16:19
that’s a common thing but I I never
16:22
finished the whole book in my entire
16:23
life I went to the hospital school and
16:27
we were supposed to read like Uncle
16:28
Tom’s Cabin and all these crazy books
16:30
and I didn’t do it I was looked on
16:32
Sparky notes in our time cheated so I
16:34
never read a book as I hated it and then
16:37
I at T&C; last year someone gave me a
16:40
book and they said you should read this
16:41
and I started reading it in november it
16:43
