How to Find Great Outsourcers So You Can Spend More Time Doing What You Love

Check out my recommended outsourcing site here (Click)

Let’s talk about outsourcing real quick. If you are running your own business, you need to start thinking about hiring a team sooner rather than later.

You and I both only have 24 hours in a day, and its impossible to work all 24 hours no matter how hard you sometimes want to.

Well, its possible. You’ll just be dead to the world the next day and will likely get sick. As entrepreneurs and business owners, you can’t miss days unless you have teams in place to handle the systems you’ve built while you’re away.

But Chris, hiring is hard!!! How do I find great outsourcers?

It’s not easy, i’ll tell you that.

But this little trick here will drastically improve the chances of you finding a great outsourcer. Is it going to take some work to sort and interview and hire? Yes.

Is it worth it? Well, when you’re out surfing and you come home and work has been done (to your specifications exactly) you’ll see that it’s worth every penny and every hour you spent designing your system.

The trick in this video here on how to find great outsourcers is going to save you a significant amount of time in the beginning stages of filtering these candidates.

Its such a simple little thing and you’ll notice that 90% of the people won’t follow the directions… guess what..

if they can’t follow this simple direction, they’ll struggle with the harder directions as well.

So use this tip the next time you are going to hire an outsourcer.

Mindset Hacks: The Difference Between ‘Have To and Get To’…

Mindset Hacks: The Difference Between ‘Have To and Get To’…

Let’s quickly talk about a subtle shift in the way you talk to yourself that can have a significant impact on your life. It’s often these little tweaks in our life that bring about the greatest rewards.

One of the simplest tweaks to implement is recognizing when you are saying “I Have to…” when doing something, such as “I have to go to work”…

and then simply just tweaking it just a little bit.

Changing it to “I get to..” might seem a little weird on the surface. However, when your brain hears that you GET TO do something, it becomes more excited.

Yes, even if its something like ” I get to go to work…”

The thing is, if you have the opportunity to work and have a job, or business like myself, you are extremely blessed. Many people around the world don’t have that opportunity.

In fact, a large percentage of the worldwide population will never have the opportunities that you currently have.

Crazy to think about, right?

Well that’s what this little tweak is about. It’s a little way to condition your mind into being more comfortable with gratitude and will lead to changes in the coming months.

Don’t worry if you find yourself saying “I have to…” it still happens to me from time to time. When you do catch yourself saying it, recognize that you said it and then consciously make an effort to re-state the statement with “I get to…” or “I want to…” and re-state that statement with that intention.

I hope this helps! Have a great day,
Chris

Expert Secrets Book Review: Expert Secrets Notes

Hey there! If you’ve come across this page, you’re most likely looking for a book review of the book Expert Secrets.

If that’s correct, then keep on reading. Otherwise, you might have just randomly stumbled upon a book that could quite possibly change the direction of your life.

Either way, check out my Expert Secrets notes below…

What is the book Expert Secrets about?

In its simplest form, the book Expert Secrets is about the process of switching from learning about a subject, to teaching about a subject.

We all reach a point in our studies where the best way for us to learn more and grow more is to start sharing the information that we know… thus leading us into teaching about the subject.

This book is all about how you can make the switch, and how to build a business around what you know.

 

The Two Types of Expert Business

  1. Selling Information Products.
  2. Leveraging Information Products to Grow an Existing Company.

Whatever it is that you want to be an expert in, spend the time to learn it inside and out. Ideally this will be a topic you can entirely “geek out on” and talk for hours on end about.

Creating Your Mass Movement

The 3 common traits of the biggest cults in history.

  1. They all had a charismatic leader.
  2. They all focused on a future based cause.
  3. They offered their audiences a new opportunity. ​

Questions to Ask to Make Sure Your Market Will Sustain Your New Expert Business

  1. Would people in this sub market be excited about the new opportunity I will be presenting?
  2. Are the people in this market irrationally passionate.
  3. Are these people willing and able to spend money on what you’re selling them?

 

Alright, well let’s get right to it… here’s my notes from Expert Secrets.

“Your results are your certification. I hereby give you permission to help people. You’re ready now.”

“That’s the key. You don’t have to be the most knowledgeable person in the world on your topic, you just have to be one chapter ahead of the people you’re helping. There will always be people in the world who are more advanced than you. That’s fine. You can learn from them, but don’t let it stop you from helping the ones who are a chapter or two behind you.”

“You don’t want to be the first celebrity in a market. You want a topic or niche with its own subculture already established.”

“It is said that in any situation, the person with the most certainty wins. I’m not talking about self-confidence. As my buddy Setema Gali says: “Self-confidence is for kids.” If you want to make an impact, you have to be certain. Certainty is what draws people to leaders, to experts.”

“People will do anything for those who encourage their dreams, justify their failures, allay their fears, confirm their suspicions, and help them throw rocks at their enemies.”

“…the late Gary Halbert when I first started my business where he said, “You are only one sales letter away from striking it rich.”

“Instead of trying to convince people that their grass is green or offering to fix their grass, allow them to follow you to the other side of the fence. That’s where they want to be anyway.”

“…..it’s important to remember that people don’t buy what they need, they buy what they want.”

“The longer I work in this business, the more I realize how everything comes down to one thing—belief. Belief creates the customer. Belief creates the results. You must persuade people to believe in what you are doing, and you do that by mastering the art of storytelling.”

“If I can make people believe that (my new opportunity) is / are key to (what they desire most) and is / are only attainable through (my specific vehicle), then all other objections and concerns become irrelevant and they have to give me money.”

“…the secret to identifying people’s internal struggles is to take their external struggle, and ask them “Why?” about five or six times. Keep drilling down until you get to the real reason they want to change. Here’s a hint: It’s usually tied to love or status—or both.”

“I want them to realize that investing in this thing shouldn’t cost them any money, it should only save them money.”

“You want people who will take responsibility for their own actions.”

Day in the Life – Heading to Surf in Canggu Bali with Chris Hughes

The other day I grabbed the GoPro and did my normal drive down to the beach and recorded a portion of it…

Day in the Life – Heading to Surf in Canggu Bali with Chris Hughes

To be honest, I’ve been pretty terrible at recording my life lately and keeping up with my blog. Also, the fact that the GoPro battery I have is terrible makes it difficult to plan to do these videos. I’ve done a few where i’ll record a portion of something and then the battery dies unexpectedly.

The good news is that I was able to record a good portion for this video. I shortened the video down quite a bit in order to have it be less than a minute long (40 seconds to be exact). We all know how short everyone’s attention span is these days, so keeping things short is essential.

Instead of filming myself sitting on my computer working all day (like my normal “day in the life” videos would be) I shot this to show you the glamour side of living in Bali.
