Business Brain Food

We have some character on the show today. A man by the name of Travis Bell who travels the world inspiring people to create and achieve their personal bucket lists. Originally a personal trainer, Travis was actually a student of Action Coach himself. One day he sat down with his coach and said “I want to be the first guy to franchise personal training across Australia”, which is exactly what he did; opening up 21 outlets along the way.

The confrontational nature of franchising didn’t suit him and he suffered from depression, so he thought long and hard about a change of direction. A number of people began asking him for life training rather than personal training, which set him on a new path. He then made the extraordinary decision to give away his whole business to the franchisees and become a motivational speaker and life coach. He gave his first seminar which in his words was ‘crap’, but during the seminar asked the question, “does anyone keep a list of things they want to do before they die?”. Nobody did, but the whole room was suddenly inspired to talk and to share stories. It was then that Travis’ calling as “The Bucket List Guy” came to be. He came out with so much gold during the show that there really is no need to paraphrase him. Just read the list below for some of the corkers he shared with Ben:

** “People are dying at 40 and being buried at 80”

** “The bucket list is the you that you don’t even know yet”

** “A bucket list is a tangible life plan - our business plan needs to fit into our career plan and not the other way around”

** “Why do we wait until it’s too late to get off our arse?” (i.e. people making bucket lists once they’re diagnosed with terminal illness)

** “Optimise your business so you can do stuff on your bucket list”

** “Only worry about the tsunami when it’s coming up your drive”

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The M.Y.B.U.C.K.E.T.L.I.S.T formula

** How Travis learnt to become grateful

** How methods of schooling shape behaviour

** The definition of ‘sheeple’

** How human beings fear being different

** How often to revisit your bucket list

Dale Beaumont is one heck of a character, and this week he is sharing with us a snapshot of the corporate future: his artificial intelligence app that will give portable business training to millions of people. Dale has already written 16 bestselling books, so he really knows his stuff.

As well as giving us a whistle-stop tour of his revolutionary app, BRiN, Dale gave some excellent advice about how businesses can embrace technology of this nature in this day and age. Read the highlights below:

** BRiN is for all the people in the world who don’t have access to business training events. Phase one is complete, with a library containing over 500 hours of content. Dale estimates that only 1% of the world population has access to the kind of events/training that we might take for granted.

** Dale recommends this basic tech toolkit for any modern-day business: A good CRM, accounting in the cloud, the implementation of project management software, an understanding of how technology can enable outsourcing, active social media, a podcast, a mechanism to collect leads from your blog, and a coherent content marketing strategy that takes in all of the above.

** As important as being up-to-date is, always make sure that you upgrade technology in order to solve a problem that your customers have. The worst mistake is to build something that nobody has asked for.

** Remember that if you successfully implement a system that solves a problem for your company then you might well be able to scale this up and sell it to other competitors in your market who have the same problem. Or even to another industry with the same problem.

** You don’t need to be an expert in the technical detail – no CEO needs to be a coder or programmer – but a broad knowledge of the basics is worth its weight in gold. It’s worth taking the time out to do a little bit of training.

** If something works 95% of the time, then people actually prefer dealing with a machine than a human being. Always remember that if you get a system right, your customers and staff will trust you more.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The inner workings of BRiN

** How reliant people are on artificial intelligence

** The reach of business training worldwide

** The importance of the human voice in modern-day technology

This from Dale really sums up why it’s important to listen up and embrace the technology: “One day, every company will be a technology company in some way, shape or form. Every business can benefit from having technology. If you don’t embrace this new world that we live in then you will be left behind by tech-savvy operators”.

This week’s guest Steve Brossman is known as an authority catalyst – he makes it his business to empower people to sell their knowledge services in a crowded market, but everything he said is applicable to any business owner or salesperson.

He’s written a book called Stand Up Stand Out, and once created a plastic ashtray shaped as a bum which sold over four million units worldwide. Steve has many great examples of how tweaking a marketing message in a certain way can massively improve business. Read on for some of Steve’s top tips:

** Have an outcome-based title for your business.

** Get away from selling yourself and your service – sell a blueprint for your clients.

** Your introductions should intrigue rather than inform – it’s about inducing the question from your audience of “how do you do that?”

** Package your service offering in a sentence with words that you wouldn’t normally put together.

** Don’t over-emphasise price in your message.

** Sell for the next step – don’t get bogged down in the whole process.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The changing business coaching market

** How to stand out in a crowded field

** The authority accelerator blueprint

** The difference between positioning and marketing

** The difference between wants and needs

** The logic/emotion buying equation

It really is vital that companies today embrace the many benefits of being on the cloud. The days of the dusty server room should be long gone, and yet many companies are still holding off taking the plunge.

This week’s guest will tell you all you need to know if you’re thinking about making the transition. Frank Debenedetto is a highly experienced operator in the field, having helped companies migrate their server space over the course of two decades. He knows firsthand just how exposed a company’s on-site systems can be, having worked with clients in his native New Jersey who lost absolutely everything as a result of an earthquake. Keep reading for a summary of what Frank covered with Ben:

** Cloud services allow for a pay-as-you-go model of payment, rather than large capital expenditure. This enables companies to access newer technology more quickly than in the past, because the size of the outlay is not as great.

** Approximately 75% of businesses are still reliant on onsite services – this really needs to change. The cost of properly securing services onsite far outweighs the costs of security on the cloud, and backup is also far easier on the cloud.

** “Software as a service” has pretty much revolutionized the way most companies do business. If you’re still installing things on individual machines using a disc, you’re probably stuck in the dark ages!

** You’re never too small for the cloud. It can help even the smallest of companies, and can be easily scaled up as you grow.

** Take your backups seriously. If you move to the cloud, make sure that you know exactly what backup facilities are offered by your provider.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The advantages of the cloud

** The ins and outs of cyber security

** Email encryption

** Mobile device management

** Two-factor authentication

** Ransomware

You may have slaved over your business plan and every aspect of your day-to-day, but have you properly considered how exposed you might be to copyright violation? This can work both ways. Maybe your web-builder built your site using illegal images, or maybe somebody else ripped off your content. With either scenario, the consequences can be extremely costly, so that’s why we’ve invited Lin Eleoff onto this week’s show.

Lin’s background is an interesting one, having originally started out as a lawyer who then became a full-time life coach. She now uses her legal background to advise businesses about how to cover themselves, and has multiple companies across life coaching and legal services. Lin kindly shared a lot of valuable advice, so see below for the highlights:

** The first company to register a company name has the right to keep it.

** Be careful of the term ‘royalty free’. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you can use the image for free – it just means that the price of an image doesn’t increase if it is used multiple times.

** If you receive a letter pursuing you for copyright infringement, check the detail of it to make sure it isn’t a scam, i.e. find proof that the person pursuing you is indeed the legal owner of the asset they are pursuing you about.

** If your own company website is infringing copyright laws but you didn’t know about it, you – as the business owner – are still responsible. Always double-check the work of your site builders/content managers.

** Registering a trademark doesn’t automatically mean that you can forget about the issue. It’s still up to you to find instances of infringement and then pursue the offenders.

** Before you pay for legal action against a website that is wrongly using your assets, contact the site’s hosting ISP and ask them to take it down.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The definition of ‘Royalty Free’

** Zero creative commons licenses explained

** The consequences of copying and pasting content

** DMCA takedown notices

** The difference between TM and (R)

** How to react when there is a case against you

Back by very popular demand we have Siimon Reynolds for his third stint on the BBF podcast. Siimon will be talking to us about all things marketing, and there really is no one better qualified for the task.

Siimon is still famous for being the brains behind the legendary “Grim Reaper” anti-AIDS campaign in Australia in 1987. From there he cofounded the Photon Group, which grew into a global empire containing 6,000 employees in 52 different locations across 14 different countries. Siimon then left the Photon Group and set up the Fortune Institute which is dedicated to helping SMEs fulfill their potential. See below for some of the great marketing advice that Siimon gave, and a snapshot of the subjects he covered with Ben during the show:

** Sometimes market leaders are not the companies with the best product – they are the companies with the best marketing.

** Anyone can learn marketing, but it is such a long process to become an expert that it basically isn’t worth it for most people. The best thing is to learn the basics with a view to using that knowledge to effectively manage an external marketing expert.

** Before any marketing campaign, it’s a good idea to work in the following order: 1. Think about your target audience. 2. Tailor the message. 3. Define how to deliver the message.

** Remember that it’s a lot easier to get customers who have already said ‘yes’ to you to say ‘yes’ again, than it is to attract new customers.

** If you aren’t sure an advert is working then it probably isn’t – it’s time to stop. But don’t stop an advert and reject the medium of advertising. It’s more likely to be your ad rather than the medium that is the problem.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** What makes an effective marketing campaign

** How Dominoes revolutionized their entire marketplace with a simple marketing ploy

** The power of surveys

** Digital marketing target methods

** The importance of message V audience

** Split testing

** How long you should spend on social media

This week’s guest has certainly lived a bit, and what a privilege it was to hear his sharp philosophical insight into the importance of ‘why’ in business. Peter Docker has been all over the world as a pilot for the RAF (he even used to fly the UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher), not to mention work as a crisis manager and an international negotiator for the UK government.

All of this experience has helped him become a highly respected motivational speaker, and as you’ll hear from his discussion with Ben, he’s an absolute master at helping people understand the ‘why’ in business. Read on for some of the highlights of the discussion:

** If you have any aspiration of being a successful business in the long term, you have to know your ‘why’. When you get this clear, it’s amazing how much easier it is for people to connect with your business.

** When we make decisions that just ‘feel right’, the chances are is that we’re feeling the ‘why’.

** A ‘why’ should be strong enough to compel your customers to put it into their own words.

** A ‘why’ doesn’t have to be big and grand – it just has to be authentic. This is how you build trust and loyalty.

** Your ‘why’ shouldn’t just come out of thin air. It should be a culmination of your past and what drives you.

** A ‘why’ is vital to get you through tough times. Without it, where is the incentive to get out of bed and solve problems?

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** Which part of the brain processes the ‘why’.

** What a ‘why discovery’ can do.

** The difference between ‘visions’ and ‘missions’.

** Where ‘how’ comes into it.

** How to come up with your ‘why’.

** How physical symbols and statements can help reinforce your ‘why’.

You may remember Johnnie Cass from way-back-when on Big Brother One. Nowadays Johnnie travels around the globe as a motivational speaker, helping people understand human potential. He is also a successful entrepreneur himself, having successfully brought his own underwear brand to market.

Johnnie faced some major battles after his flirtation with reality TV. It was impossible for him to resume the same life he had before, and the paths he chose afterwards didn’t always work out well. He knows firsthand how it feels to be demotivated and disengaged, but he also knows what to do to come out the other side. Read on for some of the top tips he shared with Ben:

** It doesn’t matter what other people think – the only opinion that matters is what you think about yourself.

** Look at problems as opportunities to challenge yourself.

** Do something every day that is a good habit, i.e. learning for a set amount of time.

** Don’t assume that social media is an accurate representation of the world around you. It’s all too easy to compare your bad day with someone else’s good day.

** Express your vulnerability. It’s better out than in.

** Take lessons from the past, but not regrets.

  In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The benefits of “be” rather than “do”

** How men can properly address depression

** The power of vulnerability

** How to work around setbacks from the past

** The difference between empathy and sympathy

We’ve changed it up a bit this week. Instead of the usual format of Ben talking to a guest, we’ve got almost an hour of Ben talking to you. This business advice is invaluable – it’s the same advice that businesses up and down the land have paid good money for, but today it is absolutely free.

This week Ben focuses on his 5-step business growth system. For the full info you’ll have to listen to the podcast, but you can have a sneak preview of this tried-and-tested system below:

  1. Time Management: People like to be busy, but that could easily mean you’re disorganised. A good business owner has time to stop and reflect.
  2. Why did you start the business? Not enough people ask themselves this. You need this as a clear objective, then you can build everything else around it.
  3. Understand your money: See your P & L as a working document full of management information, not just something that you need to do for the taxman. Design your accounts in a way that suits you, not the accountant. You should be able to easily make decisions off the back of the figures, week-to-week, month-to-month. If you can’t, then there’s something wrong.
  4. KPIs are king: For every single role in your business you need to clearly define what the measurements are of success and failure.
  5. Make sure your business can do what you say it can: Achieve that consistency! As a manager you need to take as much human error out of the equation as possible. Only with foolproof processes can your business achieve the consistency it needs to ensure customers keep coming back.

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

** The key foundations of good business

** The importance of a marketing plan

** How technology can shape your future

** The power of lead-generation strategies

** Return customers V new customers
