Secret – timesaving technique

Bill gets his one or two most vital priorities before he ever opens his email -- email is a huge time-waster. ONWARD!

Daily habit that contributes to success

Write a book in pieces -- Bill writes a book in 120 pieces so that he can write a book in just four months.

Could have ruined your business – but now – an invaluable learning experience

Bill had to go broke printing extra copies of his fast-selling books -- and Bill tells the whole story here.

Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

"You need a $20 item."

Most influential lesson learned from a mentor

"You have to simplify."  

Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

 

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

I wish I had realized that I didn't need to convert everyone into a customer -- you just need 1 out of every 100 or 1000.

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Build content that answers someone's problem -- it's the beacon that allows them to find you.

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

An individual would be passionate -- they need to create a following for themselves.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Don't be afraid to conduct an informal survey -- your customers know what they want -- listen to them
