In today’s episode you will learn the five traits that you must get rid of if you want to become successful.

Success.

We all want it. We’re all in the journey to achieve it. And in this journey, we consume an endless amount of information. Hoping to learn the one tactic, the key strategy, the revolutionary idea – that will allow us to finally reach our destination.

So much has been said and written about becoming successful. Millions of Books, DVDs, VHS tapes, podcasts, blogs, and conferences, have covered it.

If you are anything like me, you must be feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount new strategies, tactics, and habits that we supposedly need to be adding to our lives every single day. If you ever that applying all these habits and new routines that everyone talks about won’t leave you with any time to actually run your business – this episode of the podcast is for you.

My guest (and TEDx speaker), Corey Poirier, has interviewed over 2800 high achievers in sole purpose of finding out what makes them tick.

According to Poirier’s findings, it is not the new things we can add to our lives that would make us successful. Instead – success is found in removing the things that are preventing us from achieving it.

Episode highlights

  • The 5 things you must weed out if you want to become successful
  • How to handle negative family members and friends
  • How to eradicate an “I can’t” mentality

Blogging. Is it dead, or is it still a viable business strategy?

For the mighty goal of answering the question above, I’m joined by Yaro Starak. Yaro is one of the most famous bloggers out there, and has branded the term “live the laptop lifestyle”. Over the years, he has helped thousands of people launch successful businesses. All of which, had a blog as their core.

Yaro consistently makes $10-40K a month from his blog, which is now set on auto-pilot. Starak still puts in a few hours a week into it, but even when he doesn’t – business continues as usual.

How To Build A $1M Business By FORGETTING EVERYTHING You've Been Told!

Forget everything you’ve learned about making passive income online. Forget about guest posting, link building, and social media. Let’s go back to the basics. To the core of what being an entrepreneur means: becoming a successful business owner.

Click play now:

In today’s episode you will learn:

  • How to stop delaying the “money getting” process
  • Why building your first online business around “a personal brand” might not be the best option for you
  • How to streamline your marketing & sales by tapping into existing channels where money is already being made
  • How to do effective market research and uncover trending markets with little competition
  • How to learn your competition, and outdo them
  • How our guest built in 18 months a business generating over $250,000/month (including the exact steps he took!)

“Personal branding” is the biggest hype right now. Many are obsessed with turning themselves into “the product” that people buy. This is no little due to many gurus giving advice like:

“There is no one like you in the world. That’s why your unique selling proposition should be YOU! Then, no one can copy it!”

This advice is hard to follow and extremely time-consuming. But more than that, by definition – it’s not scalable!

Think about it. Say you go ahead, and build a successful personal brand. Well done! Your coaching, your books, your courses, your DVDs, and your membership sites are selling well. That’s amazing!

But… hold on one second…

The entire sales and marking process is based on people buying “you”! Congratulations, you’ve just cemented yourself into your own business. Is that a bad thing? Only if you ever want to enjoy the money you’re making – without the business crashing while you’re away!

This is why in today’s episode, my guest and I go back to “business 101″:

  1. Choose a rising market
  2. Find an existing channel where money is already being made
  3. Learn what products are doing well in the market and what problems they solve (or what desires they meet)
  4. Find the shortcomings of those products, and to make something that solves it better
  5. Put your product in the market
  6. Promote it using the existing channel where the customers already are and are accustomed to spending money

This is exactly, to the dot, how Chad Mureta built his app empire. And it’s also how today’s guest, Ryan Moran, built in 18 months a business that’s making over $250,000 a month.

I also seen Ryan mentor a good friend of mine recently. That friend went on to building his business from zero to 5-figure monthly income – in just a couple of months!

No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, you’ll want to scroll to the top of this post, and click play right now! Don’t miss the information on today’s episode!

BTW, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave Ryan a comment below, or Tweet him (@RyanMoran) to let him know :)
