alright question number three hey
00:01
Russell it’s headin out Heather Netcom I
00:04
want to know how over all the years
00:06
could you stay sayin through the whole
00:09
entrepreneurial journey I know that a
00:11
lot of us end up working crazy hours all
00:15
day all night and plus juggling a family
00:18
life and keeping your wife happy at home
00:21
and just what did you do to recharge and
00:23
just keep the fight over the years when
00:27
things were up and down so basically how
00:29
did you keep your sanity is what I want
00:31
to know thanks first off if you’re an
00:34
entrepreneur by definition of the term
00:36
you are not going to be completely sane
00:38
because like it’s all things like you
00:41
especially after you’ve gone through it
00:42
like if you have known what you had to
00:43
go through to be successful entrepreneur
00:45
before you probably would have done it
00:46
like to be completely honest like it’s
00:47
not like all sunshine and roses it’s
00:49
more like walking into a boxing match
00:51
and get in the face your face pounded in
00:53
for a long time so if you’re in it and I
00:55
did a whole podcast on uh yesterday
00:57
actually if you listen to marketing
00:58
secrets podcast I did an episode this is
01:00
the number one way I’ll know I know if
01:02
yours can be successful or not it has to
01:04
do with what your motivation is 100% so
01:06
if your goal becoming entrepreneurs I
01:08
think I want to make money almost 100
01:11
percent of times you will fail this game
01:14
ex probably hundred percent if you come
01:17
in and your goal is like I want to I
01:19
want to help something or SERPs or
01:21
whatever it is right like if you’re
01:22
fired about something that gives you the
01:23
motivation to actually stick through the
01:25
pain because you get beat up every
01:27
single that cyclomatic just jump on you
01:28
right Caleb knows like Caleb gets beat
01:30
up on Facebook on comments like I get
01:32
beat up like it’s a brutal thing so you
01:34
have to be so obsessed and passionate
01:35
about the person you are serving that
01:37
all that stuff just goes away that’s
01:39
number one number two burnout burnout is
01:41
a huge thing especially when you are
01:42
especially there’s first trying to build
01:44
something because it’s not like people I
01:46
was asking like Russell how do you keep
01:48
your life so balanced Rick are you
01:50
kidding me okay nothing good in life
01:52
happens because you’re balanced I want
01:54
you guys understand this K like if you
01:55
when you bet your spouse or potential
01:57
spouse or someday you will when I met my
01:59
wife my life was not balanced 100% my
02:02
tension with my wife and everything else
02:03
struggled I kept doing wrestling the
02:05
school completely just dropped up like
02:07
anything you to be like you have to
02:08
learn how to unbalance your life for a
02:10
period of time to get greatness in
02:11
anything right when I was rest
02:12

  • team completely unbalanced words
    02:14
    wrestling so I could focus on it’s like
    02:15
    a masters I could become that person and
    02:17
    everything else how to suffer and then
    02:18
    it came back happened to my
    02:19
    relationships everything sent me off to
    02:21
    business like there was a time we got
    02:23
    some extremely unbalanced and you’d be
    02:25
    okay with that and then it’s gonna snap
    02:27
    back you’re trying to keep a balance
    02:28
    like that’s not going to okay so there’s
    02:29
    gonna be burned out I just understand
    02:31
    that burnouts happening like when dough
    02:32
    starts burning out that’s when we need
    02:34
    to snap back and come back into these
    02:36
    other things as well because it’s I had
    02:39
    a summer I look up to I remember he was
    02:42
    doing a presentation one time and he
    02:43
    held up this reveals a rubber band to
    02:44
    his rubber band and it doesn’t matter if
    02:46
    I was fighting hey everyone’s like
    02:48
    running around the bed and he started
    02:49
    he’s like he’s like look at a rubber
    02:50
    band like he’s like it’s really
    02:51
    interesting like if you just hold it
    02:53
    like it floppy like this it doesn’t do
    02:54
    anything it’s just useless right it’s
    02:56
    like on some people wants their life
    02:58
    like they’re just there and come like
    02:59
    they’re useless rubber bands are meant
    03:01
    to be stretched if you stretch them and
    03:02
    they can hold things together like
    03:03
    they’re useful when they’re stressed
    03:05
    right because you’re too far what
    03:06
    happens boom snaps so you have to
    03:09
    understand start learning your selfies
    03:10
    understand like better than anything I’m
    03:11
    useless but I need to be stretched to be
    03:13
    useful if I stretch too far minute break
    03:15
    so for me it’s like I get unbalanced to
    03:17
    be able to accomplish something great
    03:18
    but then before I snap I have to come
    03:20
    back and like get back into normality
    03:23
    that’s a big thing and then the third
    03:24
    part of this question was about the
    03:25
    spouse number one is I’m a huge believer
    03:28
    in you can only be as successful as your
    03:31
    spouse will allow you to be so if you
    03:33
    haven’t picked a spouse yet pick the
    03:34
    right spouse number one number two if
    03:37
    your spouse is not into this whole thing
    03:39
    then I would recommend sticking with
    03:41
    your spouse not this thing I guess
    03:42
    probably counter to a lot of people say
    03:43
    but there’s a quote from David O McKay
    03:46
    said that no success can compensate for
    03:48
    failure no and that’s true so like if
    03:50
    your spouse isn’t on board it’s gonna be
    03:52
    hard for you to really succeed in this
    03:53
    business and so a lot of times is better
    03:54
    to not and just get back to like what’s
    03:57
    going to make you guys both happy
    03:58
    because that’s much more important than
    03:59
    all this crazy stuff we’re doing number
    04:01
    three if your spouse is on board
    04:03
    it’s still going to be hard so what I
    04:05
    found this is my personal thing if I
    04:07
    tell my wife in like like 15 minutes
    04:09
    like hey hon in 15 minutes or like if I
    04:12
    call her I get five o’clock Mike Hammond
    04:13
    pull an all-nighter tonight guess what
    04:14
    happens she is pissed for a long time
    04:17
    but if I tell her three days everything
    04:19
    I can’t on Thursday night we I stay late
    04:22
    is it cool if I if I pull an all-nighter
    04:24
    so like oh sure so for me it’s like all
    04:26
    about
    04:26
    setting expectations way ahead of time
    04:28
    and so I find like a tomorrow I get my
    04:30
    flower to whatever and I just want to
    04:31
    take off and do something super bad
    04:33
    horrible idea if I just think if I’m if
    04:35
    I’m if I tell her like in advance like a
    04:38
    two weeks and I got to sing then she’s
    04:40
    okay with it you can prepare yourself
    04:41
    for that’s been big for me
    04:42
    the other secret approaching sheriff’s
    04:43
    on-camera kissing my fears she just
    04:45
    wanted this was this let me spike the
    04:47
    mic might give this one gay problem for
    04:49
    any of you guys who travels
    04:50
    entrepreneurs you will find this this is
    04:53
    like the good stuff kid if you guys like
    04:55
    this when you have to share the show and
    04:56
    slide because it’s important all right
    04:57
    so as an entrepreneur when you travel
    05:00
    this way you do big traveling you’ll be
    05:02
    so much fun you’ll be hanging out people
    05:03
    will be there seminars events and you’ll
    05:05
    be taking picture yourself smiling and
    05:06
    eating good food hanging out people and
    05:07
    you send it back to your spouse who’s
    05:08
    home with your kids stress out there
    05:10
    drooling in on them puking all my like
    05:12
    look stuff that happens as a pair right
    05:13
    and they’re seeing you having fun and
    05:15
    guess what they will resent you he says
    05:17
    it happens I’ve seen it’s not just to me
    05:19
    I’ve seen it happen with mostly people I
    05:21
    travel with this business the secret I
    05:23
    found is one time I was on a trip I was
    05:24
    miserable and when I mess with my wife a
    05:26
    type of miserable I was and then she was
    05:28
    so sympathetic when I came home it was
    05:30
    way better so when I travel guess what I
    05:32
    don’t send pictures back of the fun
    05:34
    guess what I do the stuff is hard in
    05:36
