Ever wondered how to find your dream customers?
It’s a pretty common issue that people have when growing their business. There’s actually 3 simple steps that you should be following anytime you start a new project.
Asking yourself these questions will significantly improve your overall marketing.
It’s your knowledge of the people in your market that makes the technology useful. You need to find where your target market is hanging out, and then start spending time there…
That is exactly what you want to do. You want to find unique angles to grab the attention of your target market. You need to focus on creative ways to do this.
I recommend the book, DotComSecrets in the video as a way to shortcut this process.

I get it, Entrepreneurship is glorified in the media and we only see the highlights on everyone’s social media posts.
No one shares the raw stuff anymore. The tough side of being an Entrepreneur. The stuff that you don’t want people to see, because it’s not glorious.
But the times you are going through right now? The hardships, the struggles to pay your bills on time, the struggles with seeing your business fail? This is the time that will make or break you. This is the time that you’ll reflect back on and say either “I’m glad I worked through it” or “I wish I would have worked harder.”
One thing I did back in 2012 before my business took off, was I wrote myself a note. The note was simple and its something anyone can do.
All it said was “Dear Chris, thank you for pushing forward. For continuing to build your business throughout the good and bad times. Because of what you’ve done, you’ve positively impacted the lives of hundreds of people.” and I signed it “past Chris”
Now that’s not exactly what it said, because I don’t have it with me right now to read and write to you, but you get the idea.
The tough times never last. You will get through them. It’s just a. matter of time.
But, I’ve got faith in you. You’ve got this.
Actually, here’s a video to watch that relates directly to this:
I recorded that video in 2013, and it’s still true today.
Creating value is one of the topics that’s a top discussion point when speaking with Entrepreneurs.
The problem is that many people never really explain what value is, and how to create it. In this video, I share with you what value is and how to create value.
Today I want to share with you something that’s known as the “money grab”…. and it’s one of my all-time favorite activities to do in order to increase wealth consciousness.
CAUTION: You’ll look like a fool to onlookers.
If you’re one of my good friends, I’ve most likely made you do the money grab. I actually made my brother do it one of the days we were hiking in St. John, US Virgin Islands, earlier this year… except it was extremely hot and the “grabs” were for a breeze to come off the water and cool us down.
The money grab is a very simple activity. It doesn’t require anything. Except well… to be awake.
The whole idea is simple. Think about the number of transactions that happen every single minute around the world. People are at the grocery store buying milk, people are buying clothes on different websites, people are buying… well, you get it.
The money from these purchases isn’t being shipped in one of those crazy armored cars that are loaded with money (like in those cool bank robber movies). That would be insane.
Imagine if for every $5 purchase someone made on their phone, an armored vehicle came and picked up the money to move it to someone else’s account. That would be a funny scene… although crazy expensive in day-to-day life. the good news is that with technology, this money is constantly flowing through around.
This activity allows you to sort of tap into it. Now I’m not saying doing this is going to instantly put money in your pocket… or that you’re stealing money from these transactions. You’re simply raising your level of awareness to it happening… So whenever your bank account is at a number that pisses you off, remember that the money is constantly flowing around you… you just have to find a way to step into it.
Let me know below if you’ve ever done the “money grabs” and what you thought about it!
Want to know something weird?
I enjoy brainwashing myself and others..
No, no… it’s not in that “evil, schemey, bad” way either. I enjoy positively brainwashing myself and others!
Does that sound a little out there or weird?
If so… you’ll probably love this video.
(This was a difference day/activity, but a good show of what the setup looked like)
Basically, my belief is that if you want to become more successful, you should learn about the habits of successful people. One particular habit that I came across was using mantra’s, and being deliberate about what you want in life.
When we’re young, we aren’t taught this type of stuff in school. To be specific about what you want and to create the reality you want to live in.
Right now, wherever you are in your life and business, you’re at the level you’re at because of everything you have done up until this point in time. The good news for those of you who aren’t 100% happy with your current levels of success, is that now you can be deliberate about where you want to be.
It’s not going to be easy…
Especially when you start off with declaring “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.”
Honestly, you’ll raise a lot of red flags inside your brain. It’ll be like “nah, dude…. you’re not wealth. You’ve only got $200 in your checking account” or “Nah dudette… you aren’t abundant. You don’t even have enough to take care of yourself, how can you possibly be abundance?”
Want to know something cool about when this happens? You’ll see and witness it first-hand. Your gut might feel a little weird, or your energy level might drop. That’s perfectly normal. We’re not expected to know that we are the badasses that we are.
One thing to do is to keep at it. Keep writing out “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.” because, as humans, we will eventually give in to something if we hear it enough times.
Another thing to remember is that when you first started at anything in your life… you most likely weren’t very good at it, right? I mean when we learned how to ride bikes it’s not like we magically just had perfect balance and could ride the bike. We fell off… over and over and over again. But, did your past self-give up because of a few scrapes or bruises?
Hell no! You got back up and did it.. It could be that your friend already knew how to ride a bike and you didn’t want to miss out. It could be that your parents promised to get you ice cream if you could ride your bike to a certain spot (that got me riding my bike)
Think about a couple other times in your life when you absolutely sucked at something. I’m sure there are many times because I know for me there have been countless times. We aren’t naturally just great at everything. We’re not robots.
(Except you, Google… I see you there reading my blog posts)
Okay. So back to the task at hand. Get your notebook and start writing out those statements. Get the book mentioned in the video here.
I AM WEALTH.
I AM ABUNDANCE.
I AM JOY.
The life where you actually realize that YOU ARE WEALTH, YOU ARE ABUNDANCE and YOU ARE JOY.
Because… right now, those feelings and thoughts are creating the future you. The one that you’re damn proud of. The you that can do anything and everything you set your mind to.
and if you still don’t quite feel that way, write down your affirmations another 100 times. This is all about the process. We’re undoing years of self-talk and replacing it with positive self-talk. It will take work. It will take effort. But it will be worth it.
