The biggest factor that will either help you or hold you back is what’s going on in your own head—your mindset. That’s why I invited Dr. Shannon Irvine onto the show today. We’re about to dive into a special story—your story, the story you tell yourself. Depending how you tell it, that story will either make or break your entrepreneurial journey.

The story you tell yourself, that voice you hear in your head, can have a massive impact on the actions you take, or don’t. And it’s the way you respond to adversity—a failed course launch, an unsuccessful product—that can actually make the biggest difference. Unsurprisingly, it’s after early failure that most people quit. So what do you do when you hit a wall? How do you get past it, and how do you create a mindset that shatters barriers, embraces learning, and leads to success?

Shannon has some of those answers for us today. She has a PhD in Psychology and specializes in neuro-plasticity and neuro-psychology—she applies her expertise in helping entrepreneurs pursue epic lives and businesses. Today she’s teaching us how to move forward despite failure, what to do when you’re feeling down, and how to rewrite your story and move toward success.

Adversity is a constant in business; what changes is the mindset you bring to each challenge. Your mindset in business (and in life) is the most important asset that you have. This episode is critical for anyone who wants to wire their mindset for positivity and success. That should include you, so let’s dive in!

Pat Flynn: Being an entrepreneur, owning your own business, it’s tough. There’s a lot of things on that checklist to do. There’s a lot of big, ambitious goals that we have, and there’s a lot of hurdles along the way, but the number one thing that’s going to help you through all of that is what happens in your head and how you speak to yourself, the story that you are creating for yourself.

And that voice. That voice is really whatever you want it to be, but there’s a lot of things in our past that, psychologically, we hear that voice say things that maybe we don’t want it to say. But then we start to believe it, and then it starts to determine what actions we take or don’t take and the results that we get or don’t get. What if you put in all this hard work and you try and you follow all the directions, and you still don’t get the results you want?

Perhaps you do a big launch. You validated that idea, you’ve gone through the whole process, and then nobody buys. It’s a tough thing, because it happens. It’s happened to me. It’s happened to many other entrepreneurs and yes, on the surface, from the outside, it’s very much just one of those learning experiences, those failures that we have to go through, right?

But when it’s your failure it’s tough, and you start to make up these stories about why things didn’t go well, and then you start to get down on yourself, and this is when many people quit. But I’m here to tell you that we’re going to get some help today. Dr Shannon Irvine is on with us and she’s a dear friend of mine. She’s one of my students, and she now has taken her brand-new podcast to levels that are just pretty insane in terms of how it’s helping her and her business. And we’re going to dive into that a little bit.

But really what we’re going to dive into is your story, and the story that you’re telling yourself. She comes with a PhD in psychology with a specialty in neuro-plasticity and psychology, and on this podcast you’re going to learn how to break through those moments in your life where you might be feeling down on yourself, how to move forward despite the failures, and how to rewrite that story so you have a successful life. You ready for this? This is going to be a good one. Let’s do it.

Announcer: Welcome to the Smart Passive Income podcast, where it’s all about working hard now so you can sit back and reap the benefits later. And now your host—he says he’s still in the first chapter of the biography of his life—Pat Flynn!

Pat Flynn: Hey everybody! Welcome to Session 331 of the Smart Passive Income Podcast. My Name is Pat Flynn, I’m here to help you make more money, save more time, and help more people too. Today, like I said, we have Dr. Shannon Irvine on the show with us. You can find her at DrShannonIrvine.com, and also the Epic Success Podcast, an amazing show that’s helping people through the tough times, and the psychology, and all the things that have to go and have to happen for us to succeed and move forward in our business.

I’m happy to have her on the show. She’s a student of mine; she was one of the original beta testers of Power-Up Podcasting, my course to help you start your podcast, and her show has grown and has helped her business quite big. I’m excited to have her on today, so let’s just get right into it—Dr. Shannon Irvine.

Shannon, welcome! Welcome back to the Smart Passive Income Podcast. Thanks for being here again.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Oh, I’m so stoked to be here with you today, Pat.

Pat Flynn: Last time you were on—in Session 275—we were discussing your podcast, the Epic Success Podcast, which was great—and you are a student of mine—when my course, Power-Up Podcasting came out, and your podcast has grown so much and you’ve done so much more since then. Helping people break through from six figures to seven figures, that’s what you do. You help them through all the mindset things that relate to that. We’re going to talk about that a little bit, but I just want to ask you, like, give us an update. How are things going in your business and in life?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Oh my goodness. Well, of course I’m addicted to podcasting. I love being able to serve entrepreneurs in that way and it’s been such an amazing journey to be able to speak to all of these different entrepreneurs from different backgrounds, and being able to share their stories and the things that have helped them build their businesses so that people who listen to the podcast can really take all those golden nuggets and plug them into their businesses. It’s just been a joy to watch the podcast grow and help more and more entrepreneurs build their empires as they’re getting started. So it’s been a great journey.

And then bringing my offline business online for the past year and a half or so has been humbling and a great journey as well in terms of, you know, learning how the online space works differently than my offline consulting business, and really fully being present for the tribe that is growing. So it’s been an amazing year.

Pat Flynn: That’s excellent. I know there’s a lot of people who are listening right now who have an offline business and want to transition into online. Do you have perhaps one tip that you can offer related to your transition, and something perhaps you wish you knew about before you made that transition?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Yeah, I do. I think the big key is that it does feel so different, and I’d kinda studied and mentored under a lot of online entrepreneurs before I took the leap. So I’d already been indoctrinated and kind of understood the lay of the land. I had the map. But having the map and actually driving it is a whole different ballgame, right?

So I think the biggest thing that I would recommend is, don’t forget that you know how to run a business. If you have a successful offline business and you’ve done all the work to set that up, bring all of those skills into the online community because they are honestly the pillars that will help you scale faster. And what I see a lot of times, a lot of the mistakes that I see with some of my clients that are trying to do the same thing, is they’ll get online and they just kinda throw away like, all of their business acumen because it seems so different.

But in reality, those core pieces of staying committed, consistent, always showing up, serving, customer’s always right—all of those things are the linchpins that have really propelled my business online this last year. And I feel like it’s the thing that can really help you grow so much faster than if you get in and just abandon all that.

Pat Flynn: Right? Because offline or online, it’s still business. And what works is helping people and serving and showing up and being consistent, like you said. I love that a lot. Now the name of your podcast is the Epic Success podcast. What does epic mean to you?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Epic means to me . . . it’s really building a life and a business that is completely fulfilling. So that’s why I didn’t call it like, “the Hustle Podcast,” or anything like that. I’m a very highly-driven human being, but one of the things that really drives me is how people can build their businesses to six, seven and even eight figures, but still have a life and a family and everything around them that they enjoy.

So epic success is really defined by the individual entrepreneur. What is it for you? So for you and I, Pat, we both have families and that is a priority for us. For other entrepreneurs, that’s not the case and they have different values and they’re driven differently, but my mission is to see entrepreneurs really step in and define what success looks like so when they get there, they can actually feel successful, instead of getting to that place and then realizing there’s so much more because they left their family behind, they left everything that they value behind, and they may have hit the number but they’re not successful. So epic success is really that integrated success defined by the entrepreneur.

Pat Flynn: I love that. And for those of you who have read my book, Will It Fly?, this is why the exercises in the beginning of the book are so important. It’s about who do you want to be, and I’ve just like—I’ve come across several entrepreneurs who on paper look amazing. Employees, millions of dollars, but they’re unhappy, they’re unfulfilled. I’m like, “you’re an entrepreneur, you can choose any direction you want, yet you went down this direction that doesn’t match who you want to be.” And it’s kind of sad, so I’m thankful that you’re here to help us realize these things as well, early on before perhaps it’s too late.

I always use the analogy of the ladder, right? You’re climbing the ladder and you might be at the top of the ladder, but then you realize you’re up the wrong ladder. And that’s a tough thing to do. And then my analogy for that is like, you gotta let go—which is hard in order to progress. So, that’s great.

Now for those of you listening, a lot of you may not already be at the six figure level. There is a whole set of mindset-related items that you need to go through to break through to, you know, start to first-win, first-win to thriving business, thriving business to crossing that six figure mark. Now, whether you have reached that benchmark yet or not, the things that we’re going to talk about right now are going to be really helpful to prepare you for what’s coming, and also probably just still be very relevant to what you’re going through right now.

So I’d love to ask you Shannon, you know, when people consider growing their business and especially going from six figures to seven figures, you know, it’s a lot of strategies. It’s a lot of tactics, but I know that that’s not where we should start. Where do we start when it comes to, how do we grow our business and scale it at that level?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: You know, it’s so true that as an entrepreneur starts, we really do focus in on those strategies. We’re looking at, okay, what’s the best way to do Facebook ads or whatever the strategy may be, and we spend our energy in pursuit of those things, and that’s good, right?

Because we have to build a foundation. Foundation has to be there. But what I see over and over again—and it happened to me too, I mean I was all great with just strategy and hustle until my . . . I had a six figure business. It was going great and then I got married, and then I had to kind of do the adjustment of “okay, how do I do this with another human being?” But that worked out because we were both adults, right? So we figured that out and then kids came, and then all bets were off, like, you know, my values changed.

Everything kind of turned upside down, and I had one of those moments where I was overworked, I was hustling and that got me to a six figure business. So you can hustle your way there, but there’s a point at which it just stops, and all the things, all the strategy, all the latest and greatest—whatever’s working online right now doesn’t work anymore because those are just vehicles.

So any vehicle can get you to that place, but if you haven’t slowed down to work on who you are, and actually step into the person—you know, Albert Einstein has a great quote and I see it around a lot right now, but the thinking that got you to where you are right now—that overwhelmed, overworked entrepreneur is not the thinking that’s going to get you to the next level. And it’s the hardest thing for us as driven people to slow down to speed up.

And it is by far the number one thing from every entrepreneur, including yourself, James Wedmore, Amy Porterfield, that I’ve had the blessing to be able to interview on the podcast, as well as all my clients and myself hands down: slowing down to work on who you are as an entrepreneur and who you want to be, and stepping into the thinking and the actions of an upper six or seven figure entrepreneur is the number one thing that actually allows you to get there.

And it’s hard for us because it doesn’t feel like, you know, a tick the box kind of thing in terms of building your mindset. But if you don’t do it, then you’re going to be that hamster on a hamster wheel, always feeling like you’re so busy, but your growth will literally stop on you and you won’t be able to move forward.

Pat Flynn: You know, it’s interesting. I don’t know if those of you listening know this, but I have a high level coaching/mastermind program called the SPI Accelerator, and it was only released to those who were on my email list who are at that level. So a lot of you probably have never heard of that, but it’s called the SPI Accelerator Program and it’s been running for several months now.

Shannon, you’re in there, and it’s great and the community in there’s awesome. Somebody in the group had said the other day, “you know, I know you call this the Accelerator Program, but actually what you’re helping us do is de-accelerate.” And that’s just like you said, I mean, it perfectly aligns. And these are people who are at that level, too. Like, the way to grow is to slow. And I just made that up by the way. Slow to grow. Anyway, I’m not going to figure that out right now.

But it’s so true. And I think what got you here won’t get you there. But we are so used to doing the things that got us here, and you have a background in psychology—how do we even begin to slow down when like, I think it’s easy just to say, “oh yeah, that makes sense,” but when you actually have to do that, it’s one of the hardest things to do, and I know from my own personal experience too. What can we do, how can we better execute on slowing down? How do we know what to slow down to? Do you have tips for us there?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: I do. So one of the things I really want you to hear is that a lot of times we think about doing, you know, this kind of mindset work. We think of it as kind of this kind of, out there . . . like it’s like a floating cloud. Like, you can’t quite get your hands around it, kind of woo-woo, and if you like the woo-woo thing then great. But for me, I’m like a type A. I like lists. I want to know there’s a process behind things and that’s why I took it . . . I had high level mentors, I studied their lives, but it still wasn’t enough. And so that’s why I ended up going out and getting my PhD in neuro-psychology. It’s borderline obsessive, but I really wanted to understand like, neurologically speaking, what’s different about people who have this high, high level of success, whether it be an entrepreneur or even in athletics, and some of my clients are athletes as well and they have a way of thinking that is different from somebody who is not at that level, and what’s different?

And it’s really intriguing to know, I think, and very freeing to know, is everything that they have, you can have. You actually have the capacity right now, because the way your brain is wired, it is wired for automation and it’s wired for efficiency. It’s by far the most amazing system and tool you have as an entrepreneur to scale your business. But most people, except for those in the top 5 percent, are not tapping into it. And what I mean by that is, you know—a great example of this, there’s a part of your brain called the reticular activating system, right? And its number one job is to prove, to find evidence for what you feed it.

Now, the bad news about our brains is that it’s neutral. So no matter what you feed it, whether it’s hustle and overwhelm, and “I’m not sure if I can do this and I’m not sure if I’m worth this,” and all of the stories—and we can talk about how stories kill your business too, but you’re either feeding it that or you’re feeding it the thinking and the actions and the steps of what it takes to scale. Either way, your brain is going to start working for giving you evidence that that’s true. If you’re spending your energy just saying things to yourself like, “You know I’m not sure if I’m cut out for this, I’m not sure if I can do this,” all the self-doubt, well your brain is going to start looking for evidence that that’s true.

Pat Flynn: This is where the book Think and Grow Rich actually makes sense on a psychological level. It’s the stuff that you’re telling yourself that helps make things happen. It’s not like we think, and then money will magically appear, but you will begin to behave as if you will become successful.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Absolutely. We know this practically . . . a practical example of how this part of our brains work for us is if you’ve ever gone and finally saved up and got an amazing new car, right? You’ve got your Tesla there. Before you actually went and made the purchase, you never saw that car and you were pretty sure you have the most original car that’s ever going to be on the road. Then the second you drive off the lot, thousands of people have the exact same car. Nothing shifted in the universe, but that’s your brain actually . . . you’ve told it, “I want this car. I want this car. I want this car. I want this car.” Then as soon as you have the car, there’s that evidence and then your brain says, “See, here it is everywhere!” Now you’re seeing it everywhere. It was always there, and it’s the same thing that can happen in terms of success in your business. If you’re thinking “I can,” or “I can’t,” your brain starts to go to work for you.

One of the big pieces that, when you talk about slowing down to speed up . . . “slow to grow,” that’s what you said.

Pat Flynn: Oh is it? Oh sweet. I like that, thank you.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Something like that. Whether you believe this or not, you have stories and those stories drive your actions. Those stories live in your subconscious and everyone has them. Right now, you have a story about success. You have a story about failure. You have a story about money. You have a story about your worth and identify. If you leave those stories in your subconscious then they will absolutely drive your beliefs, which drive your thoughts, which drive your actions. Those actions lead you to your success. Doesn’t it make sense that we start to do the little bit of work that it takes to start to uncover those stories, so that we can make sure that they are the stories we actually want to be hard-wiring in our brain? They are hard-wired right now.

Stories like . . . here’s a great one. We’ll start with the money thing, because the money thing is a big thing. Whether you grew up like me where I always heard, “Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

Pat Flynn: “We can’t afford that.”

Dr. Shannon Irvine: “Can’t afford that,” or here’s a big one for us entrepreneurs, “You’ve got to really work hard if you want to be successful. If you’re not working hard, then you won’t earn enough money.” That story right there will keep you on that hustling, grind train and keep you stagnated at a level of success that you can’t break through because you’re not . . . because as soon as you get close to breaking through, your brain is going to be in conflict and you’re going to do something like procrastinate or turn on Netflix, instead of doing the things you need to do to get it done, because your brain wants to stay in balance. That story’s living in your subconscious. You’ve got to rewire that story and you can. Here’s the beautiful thing.

Pat Flynn: How?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: You absolutely can rewire, rewrite, and write the story that’s accurate so that you can get to those next levels of success in your life and your business. You have to start to become aware of them. I take my clients through a process of going through and becoming aware, writing it down, and then literally putting those beliefs and those stories on trial. Then of course writing the story that you want to have.

Pat Flynn: Can we dive deeper into that process, for those of us who are listening who, we know we have stories? A good concrete example I think a lot of us can relate to, this was reminded to me when you were talking as . . . you know when we have like, a bad day

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Mm-hmm.

Pat Flynn: Just like things keep . . . bad things keep stacking on each other. It’s because we wake up and something happens, something breaks and we’re like, “Oh that happened.” Then immediately something else happens. We’re like, “Oh man. Today is going to be a bad day.” Then you start looking for things that are bad that you wouldn’t have normally probably even paid attention to. You look down, you have a stain on your pants. Like, “Oop, this is my bad day today. Look at this. I got a stain on my pants,” where before it wouldn’t even matter. Then it just kind of snowballs, and I think that is a small reflection on a day that is perhaps something that we are living through every single week. Every single month, every single year. How do we rewrite that story like you said? This is like, the thinking part now, and now it’s the training part. How do we get out of that? You had mentioned writing it down. Being aware, right, is number one?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Being aware is number one. I have a 4 R process that I take my entrepreneurs through. The reality is—what you’re talking about is a great example, Pat, because that keys in on our embedded story about failure. We have a story, regardless of whether you think you do or not. It’s all fine and good unless the stress happens. Like you said, you woke up, something happened. It’s always in those moments of stress or those moments where you’re going beyond your comfort zone, which is what we do as entrepreneurs pretty much daily, so those are great opportunities, because we don’t get confronted with our stories if things are going fine. You’re making everything you want. Your marriage is fantastic. Your kids are all beautiful and they don’t act out. That perfect world? You never have to actually engage with your story, but your story . . . I always talk about the fact that your subconscious is where your story lives and subconscious wins. You can’t outthink your subconscious because it’s hard-wired for you.

To get into that 4 R process, you have to start recognizing. That’s the first R, is just recognizing that you have it. In that moment of stress, when you wake up and step in gum or whatever the thing is that kicks it off, start to tune in to, “what am I saying about myself? What am I thinking about failure? About success?” Depending on what trigger is happening at the moment; for this one it’s like, “what’s my story about failure?” Usually these stories come about because somehow they protected us as a child. I want you to give yourself tons of grace for having these stories. First of all, everybody has them. Even those great Pinterest-worthy people that are making millions, they have them too. They still have to deal with them. Okay? Give yourself a lot of grace on that, but recognizing it is saying, “Okay, what’s my story about failure?Yeah, so these things always happen to me.”

Instead of just thinking about it, you’ve got to grab a piece of paper and a journal. I have a journal that I have them . . . you want to work on pen and paper because it pulls it out of the subconscious and actually pulls it into a part of your brain that can actually start to work on it. You would write down on the piece of paper, “Things never go right for me.” Then the next part of that process is to read it. Not inside your head: Read it out loud, because the adult in you is going to either do one of two things. You’re either going to read it and you’re going to say, “That’s not true.” You’re going to immediately have evidence to the fact that that’s not true. You’re going to start . . . here’s a great example. I’ll use myself because it’s a little bit more concrete.

When I was starting to develop the podcast, right, I had that moment of like, “Gosh. Do I have enough worth or value to bring to the podcast?” It was just rolling around in my mind but then I’d keep pushing through, because that’s what we do. We’re like, “Ah, ah!” You kind of dismiss it and you keep driving, but it kept coming up. As I kept getting a couple bigger people saying yes to coming on, I’m like, you know, posture syndrome kicks in and all those things. We still go through it; I just know how to deal with it quicker. That’s all. I sat down and I wrote, “I’m not sure if I have enough value to bring to the podcast world.” Immediately I looked at that and I was like, “Well, that’s not true. I have this background in neural psychology, which is giving mindset and growth an actual process to work through. I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was twenty.”

I started refuting it, and that’s the next thing: You put it on trial. You just start refuting it. “Is that true?” You just ask that question. “Is this thing that I wrote down true?” You need to do a lot of this work, pen to paper, and outside of your own thinking voice, you know, actually talking. Maybe your family might think you’re a little bit off, but it’s okay. Once you put it on trial, as an adult you start to immediately say, “No. That’s not true.” Then you write the correct story, which is what is true and valid. Now, where it gets a little tricky is if you’re in that writing phase and you read it out loud to yourself and you kind of agree with it. This has happened, so I wanted to talk about that, because sometimes these are so deep-seeded from survival as a child that worth, identity things are all wrapped up in success, failure, and money. They’re just like a tangled weave.

If that happens, if you’re sitting there and you’re like, reading what you wrote out loud and you’re in agreeance with it, then you need to take it outside of yourself and put that on someone you love, or like a child or a spouse or a best friend. In this podcasting situation, because I knew that I really needed to slay this if I was going to do a decent job at serving people, I read it. I started to refute it, but then I thought about saying that to my son. “You don’t have enough value to bring to what you’re doing in the world.” Then, you know, that mom in me, that is like, “Oh no you don’t. I’ll snatch you.” You get sort of that energy, because sometimes we have to put it outside of ourselves to see the lie. That’s all it is. It’s just a lie that protected you at some point, but is actually keeping . . . I call it success-sabotaging beliefs at this point. You then rewrite it. What is the truth? You write it down and then that’s the biggest part of the work. That’s really not that painful.

Now, when the emotion comes up surrounding that stress moment again, you already have what is truth, and you just keep repeating the truth. Now what’s going on behind the scenes, so I can take it out of the esoteric place, is you’re actually starting to hard-wire the truth. The old belief you were subconsciously just believing and repeating, so you had a neural network that was built like a freeway. That freeway, that’s what our brains do. They really make it easy for us to think and not have to actually use energy to do it. It’s automated.

Now you’re taking and building a new neural network by repeating this truth every single time you come up against even the emotion of not feeling enough. Even the emotion of feeling the failure. Even when the stain gets on your shirt. It seems so simple, and this is where people get tripped up, it seems like such simple work that us driven, high-performance people kind of want to dismiss it and just move on to the tactical. But dismissing that and moving to the tactical is going to completely stunt your growth. You’ve got to be able to be willing to say, “You know what? I have a self-leadership, and I actually want to write the story that happens.” We can.

Pat Flynn: Have you ever heard of Hal Elrod and The Miracle Morning?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Oh yeah. I love Hal. I saw you recently there at his birthday. That was really cool.

Pat Flynn: He has his birthday in the world premiere of The Miracle Morning movie which I was in, and really cool, but you know what this is reminding me of? It’s the A in “SAVERS,” his strategy is silence. So this is what you do in the morning if you want to practice miracle mornings, and it doesn’t have to be very long. “SAVERS” is the acronym. Silence, affirmations, visualizations, exercise, reading, and scribing or journaling. This is what exactly you’re saying is the A, which is affirmations. It’s like saying to yourself who you want to be, or what the truth is. “I am this,” or, “I am not that. I can do this.” Just ingraining that in your head, and that then becomes what you practice.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Absolutely.

Pat Flynn: I mean, the affirmations is what you’re telling us to do.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Yes, absolutely.

Pat Flynn: For those of us who have rewritten our story, once we get to that point, how do we practice that and hard-wire it in for good? Would a daily routine like that help? Do you have any other tactics that could help?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Yes, I do. I love that, of course. Now I want you guys . . . as you’re listening I want you to hear how Pat did that, because he does this work. He immediately is like, “Okay, this is affirmation. I need to continue it.” That’s exactly truth. It’s that repetition. Here’s the beautiful thing. You hear, a lot of the times, it takes twenty-one days to change a habit, right? Well, we now know through neural science that’s not true. At twenty-one days your old neural network and your new great habit or neural network, or story replacing in this situation, are equal. At twenty-one days, either one can take over. That’s the truth. I’m just going to be real. That’s the truth. At sixty days, that’s when any habit or what you’re doing here, this work of affirmation like you said, is now the neural network that’s built.

The automation starts to kick in at that sixty-seventh day. So absolutely a daily practice, whether you have the feelings or emotions or not around your stories of success, of failure, of worth, of money, of identity, taking the time to verbally, outside of your own mind, audibly repeating the truth of the story that you’re writing, that is another piece. After the 4 Rs I take my clients through—and I would love everybody listening to start realizing that as you’re starting to rewrite the stories, you need to really click in to now defining, who do you want to be? Your brain has the ability to hard-wire that, but if you don’t fill it, those old stories do come back in. Who do you want to be?

We talked at the top about the thinking that got you where you are isn’t going to get you there. Who do you want to be? Who is it that you want to be? Start to be the person . . . if we’re talking about just business alone, talk about being that person that’s at that six-figure level. How do they think? What actions are they taking? Be the person that’s already there so that you can easily move into it. Your brain starts to, again, look for evidence. Remember that reticular activating system.

Pat Flynn: Right.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: “Oh, that’s who I am?” Okay. You’re repeating the true stories daily. Every day. It’s just part of the mantra. It’s part of a system in the morning to where you’re really owning the truth of what you’ve defined. So many of us have our thoughts and our stories and our future on autopilot, when we’ve been gifted this beautiful system of our brain that can literally automate what you want.

Now, it’s not like a thought machine. You can’t put in the “give me the eight figure lottery ticket,” and that’s going to do it. But over time your thinking starts to shift, and you start taking different actions. You start believing different things because the story that you’re starting your day with is the story of the person that you ultimately will be. Why not be that person now? That makes the journey just so much simpler and lighter and enjoyable, versus struggling to stay the person you are and then wanting to be somebody else.

Just step into it now. What are the actions? What are the thinking? Even when you’re planning your day . . . even though mindset is my thing of choice in terms of helping entrepreneurs break free . . . then you get practical. You need to set your day up like you’re a six and seven figure entrepreneur, even if you’re just getting started, because that’s going to be the thing that’s going to get you the opportunities, that you’ll be expansive enough so you can actually collaborate with people. You’ll be aware enough so you can see the long road ahead and be able to design it the way you want, versus just reaction and responding to the stimulus that’s coming at you at the time.

Pat Flynn: I love that. Behaving like a seven figure entrepreneur, even if you’re not. Now that doesn’t mean pretending you have millions of dollars and spending a bunch of money on a yacht and a boat and a house, which is what a lot of people do, and that’s not the right way to go about it.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: No.

Pat Flynn: But, for example, behave like a seven figure entrepreneur. Hang around other successful people, because you are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with, Jim Rohn says. And then, I was also reminded of . . . it’s not just Hal Elrod talking about this. It’s not just you talking about it, but a book I read a long time ago from T. Harv Eker called Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, that’s a great book.

Pat Flynn: There’s a PDF you print out, and you say these things every morning. I was just reminded . . . I think he calls them your declarations. I think one of them was “I think big. I choose to help thousands and thousands of people. I promote my value to others with passion and enthusiasm. I commit to being rich.” This isn’t like, woo. It may sound woo-woo. But this is psychology, this is human behavior, this is rewiring ourselves. The story that you tell yourself is the story that you become, and I think that’s so key.

To finish off here, Shannon, this is all fantastic, great stuff that’s going to be super useful. I’d love to do a little role playing game with you, if that’s okay.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Love it, love it, yeah, absolutely.

Pat Flynn: This will be a scenario, and I’d love to know how you, as the coach essentially in this situation, would help me out.

I tell myself these affirmations every single day. I practice and I behave like an entrepreneur who is successful, and I am seeing success, and then I plan a launch and it’s based on what my audience says they want. And they are ready for this launch, and I launch this thing, and it falls flat. It just bombs. And now I’m in my own head. I am in this whirlpool going down and circling down into a deep dark hole of “I’m not worth it, I am not good enough. It is all ending. Everything I put my work into is crumbling. I should go out and get a job, a stable job. Who am I to even think I could go down this route, Shannon?” How do I . . . I had done all the things, but then, now I’m derailed. How do I get back on?

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Oh, my gosh. I love this so much. Welcome to the world of being an entrepreneur, what he just described, because as we love to say, “next level, next devil.” It doesn’t go away. You just get much, much, much, much better at identifying it and doing the work.

Before this launch, of course we would have talked about what the launch means. What does it mean about you? Because the reality is, if you’re thinking like a seven figure entrepreneur, you absolutely know you’re going to fail. You’re going to fail and learn, and fail and learn, and fail and learn, and that’s the fabric of almost every successful on and offline business owner that I know. They took risks and they failed.

So we would have done that work ahead of time, but we’re here and you’re spiraling, so I, Pat, would want to know from you, what does this failure mean about you?

Pat Flynn: My reply would be, I built the wrong audience. I built the wrong product. I wasted a bunch of money and now I don’t have any clients at all. Money is not coming in like I thought it was going to, and our projections. I feel like a failure.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: And so, does this product not help people then?

Pat Flynn: It helps people. They said it was something they needed, but for whatever reason, it just wasn’t connecting with them, and so I don’t know what to do next. If I relaunch, should I lower the price to try and get people in it? Maybe it was the price that was the issue. I think it’s going to be helpful for them, and I even had a couple of my friends go through the course and they said it was helpful, but I wasn’t making sales. I don’t know if people believe me.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Hmm. Okay, do you believe that if it sold, what kind of impact would it make on people and on their lives? Say we’re sitting here. The launch didn’t fail. It was at the right price or the right marketing message and all that, and we’re sitting her and you’ve got ten people in. What are they getting from your course? Because I know you launched this because you had a drive and a belief and you wanted to help people. What is it helping them with?

Pat Flynn: It would help them double their revenue, because it includes some really unique marketing tactics that I implement myself and I’ve shared this on a surface level on my blog and on my podcast, and it’s for people who want to execute on that, which is not easy. And so I would have these ten students going through and daily getting small wins that lead up to the big win in the end, where they launch something new, and then they double their revenue. They see something they haven’t seen before. And I know it can help them do that. That’s the big frustration here, Shannon, is that I don’t have the people in there.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Yeah. Can you identify that your worth is connected right now to this being a success, because you’re feeling like you want to give up, that maybe it wasn’t worth it? You spent all this money, you spent all this time. Do you see that there’s a story there, that this had to be successful to validate your worth in this?

Pat Flynn: Yeah, yes, this failed; therefore, I am a failure.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Okay, let’s talk about that story, because you just told me something that contradicted that which was, “oh my gosh, I’ve done this in my own business. It’s life-changing, and I’ve had a couple people do it and they said it was amazing.” I’m assuming the two people, the beta people that you had go through probably had some pretty positive things to say about it. What were some of the things that they said about it to you?

Pat Flynn: By the way, for everybody listening, we’re just kind of jamming here. This isn’t an actual thing, but I love where this is going, by the way.

They’ve gotten the results. I delivered on the outcome and it’s great. What I’m hearing is I am not a failure completely. I just didn’t launch this properly, but that does not equal “I’m a failure.”

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Right. The story you’re telling yourself is what? I want you to say it out loud. “I felt like I was . . .” because we’re moving out of it, but I want you to verbally say it. “I felt like I was a failure. . .” finish that sentence.

Pat Flynn: I didn’t sell into this course; therefore, I am not cut out to be in this business.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Is that true?

Pat Flynn: No.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Why not?

Pat Flynn: Because I’ve proven that I am cut out for it by helping other people, by the thousands of people who read my blog and listen to my podcast.This is just a outlier experience that has nothing to do with my value and self-worth.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: No, absolutely. Restate for me what is true. What is true about this product and you?

Pat Flynn: I am a person who can help people with their business. I am a valuable asset for people to have, and I will continue to find new ways to help people moving forward, despite this one particular launch that may have failed for reasons outside of who I am. I will find a way to make it work.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: There you go. And so, then I’m going to want you to stay with that and continue with that. And I don’t know how long you want to go, but I would now dive into, “all right, now you’ve separated yourself from the actual launch. Let’s talk about the launch and is the launch a failure?”

Pat Flynn: Right, right. And we won’t go down that road. I’m thinking I could totally bring this in another direction by going—

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Right, exactly.

Pat Flynn: “I forgot to put the sales button on the sale page.”

Dr. Shannon Irvine: Yeah, well, there you go.

Pat Flynn: All right, all’s good. No, I’m just kidding, but thank you for doing that with me. I know that’s a challenge to have you do that right on the spot, but that was really cool. I love how you helped me realize that what I was seeing was actually not true. It felt true, even in this scenario playing this role, but then you showed me through very specific examples that it just was not true. And you didn’t say, “That’s not true, Pat.” You had me realize it, which I think is the key here.

Dr. Shannon Irvine: And we can do this. Of course, having a coach—and that’s why I do coach people in our programs, but you can do this work. That’s the thing that I really want people to take away from this. I love that you said it felt true, because we always have a feeling of “before we have a cognition of.” The feeling is always going to be there first. And when you start to do this work, it actually feels uncomfortable. So yay!

I tell people that’s a good sign, feeling uncomfortable in this is good, but knowing that you can actually be the one who is in control of your internal game. Have that self-leadership or governance, and you have the capacity, completely and totally. You are no different than whatever person you’re looking up to, the Tim Ferrisses, the Tony Robbinses, the Pat Flynns, whoever it is that you’re looking to as being your ultimate role model, you have the same.

And we see this on PET imaging scans. That’s where I get real geeky, when you can actually see the neural network change, and it all is from this affirmation and visualization going through this 4 R process, and then hardwiring the true story that you want to walk into.

Pat Flynn: Woo, that was good. I’m excited. I hope those of you listening, you all enjoyed listening to this, and Dr. Shannon Irvine here who is with us today. Thank you, Shannon. We appreciate you.

SPI 330: Building a Personal Brand (Because It’s Your Calling) with Jadah Sellner https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/building-a-personal-brand-jadah-sellner/ https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/building-a-personal-brand-jadah-sellner/#respond Wed, 08 Aug 2018 15:00:00 +0000 https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/?p=128429 I’m stoked to have Jadah Sellner back on the show today! She was a guest over 100 episodes ago in Session 205—she’s one of the co-founders of a very successful company called Simple Green Smoothies, an amazing brand which got huge in a very short time. Yet Jadah ultimately chose to sell her portion of the company and start a personal brand. Today we’re talking about that decision, how it went, and where she’s at now in the aftermath. Whether you have a personal brand already or have thought of starting one, this episode is for you.

Jadah’s story is inspiring and informative. It’s a story about what happens when you start listening to that “whisper,” the voice in the back of your head that can lead you toward fulfillment in your business and career. In the episode, Jadah explains why she’s taken the direction she has and how she got there. She also gives us food for thought for our own journey in business and in life: Her philosophy and mindset about starting a personal brand. When we’re willing to take risks, become uncomfortable, and grow, amazing things can happen. This episode is here to help you do exactly that. Enjoy!

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, so can I tell you a secret, Pat?

Pat Flynn: Yeah. Can I publish . .. Wait, is this something I could publish or is this . . . ?

Jadah Sellner: It’s totally publishable!

Pat Flynn: Oh, okay.

Jadah Sellner: I’m not passionate about green smoothies. What I’m passionate about is helping people, and this dream had been planted before Simple Green Smoothies.

Pat Flynn: You’re listening to Jadah Sellner, our special guest today, who was with us over a hundred episodes ago, in Episode 205. You might remember her as one of the co-founders of a very successful company, SimpleGreenSmoothies.com, which grew quite big in a relatively short period of time. Jadah came on before to talk about how she and Jen used challenges to help get the community together and help them build this massive following. I think they have over a half million followers on Instagram now and they came out with a book together. Things went very well, yet Jadah chose to sell her portion of the company and start a personal brand, which is a huge move, especially when you have an already successful business. We’re going to talk all about that, the decision, the hard parts, how it was planned, how it was executed, and where things are at now with Jadah Sellner from JadahSellner.com. Stick around. You can put that phone in your pocket and listen in, this is going to be a great one. Whether you already have a personal brand or you have been at any time in your life thinking of starting one, this is for you.

Okay, awesome. Now, let’s get to today’s interview with Jadah Sellner from JadahSellner.com.

Jadah, welcome back to The Smart Passive Income Podcast, thank you so much for being here today.

Jadah Sellner: I’m so happy to be back, Pat. This conversation is very exciting for me. We were just talking about podcasts before we started recording, and it’s a wild journey that we circled back to where I have a podcast now and I’m on your podcast. I’m super excited to be here with you today.

Pat Flynn: The last time you were here, you didn’t have a podcast, and actually you were known for the other half of Simple Green Smoothies. You delivered some amazing content the last time, talking about challenges and how you used that to grow your Instagram following as well as your brand with Jen over at Simple Green Smoothies. First of all, I think even since that, you had published a book with her for that brand and had done so much stuff.

Jadah Sellner: Yes.

Pat Flynn: Now, you are building a new brand, and I’d love to discuss that. Specifically, just transitioning in general, which is I think something that all entrepreneurs do on some level, but you’ve made one of the biggest ones that I’ve seen and I’d love to unpack that. Just give us a kind of update since the last conversation on some of the cool things that have happened with that brand, and maybe even diving into the exit a little bit if you wanted to discuss that.

Jadah Sellner: Yeah. Simple Green Smoothies, the published book, it’s in Barnes & Noble and it’s on Amazon. It was a number one best-seller in all three categories for the first month that it published. We have over 500 five-star reviews on that book, which is amazing. What’s super, super cool is we actually got approached to do a second book deal and Jen will have that book coming out later—I think in the fall of this year.

Pat Flynn: No way. That’s super cool.

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, which, I’m so excited. Here’s the thing about that piece. I actually helped write the book proposal for the second book deal knowing that I wasn’t going to continue with the company. I said, “I feel like I’m shopping for a house with my soon-to-be ex-husband,” because anyone who has business partners knows that it’s basically a marriage and your team are like your kids and you’re sharing finances and you’re having conversations about just so many deep things. There’s nothing you spend more time on, besides being with your family, than the work that you do in the world.

It was not easy to make the exit for something that we built that was so beautiful and was built with so much love. If people listen back to our past conversation about talking about challenges, we also shared some pretty cool ways on how we just express love in business. That’s what I’m really taking a stand for today, is business is personal, and I talk about the ABCs of love, of we want to feel acknowledged, feel a sense of belonging, and a sense of connection. I carry that. That’s just a part of who I am and I’m carrying that into my brand today, but I will tell you it was not easy to walk away from a business like that that had become so well-known, and having a book deal on the table. It took a lot of bravery.

Pat Flynn: First of all, when we’re talking about challenges, there are always going to be challenges in businesses, right? Like this one of leaving and exiting a really great company. But we were discussing on the last podcast, creating challenges for your audience to participate in to grow your business. That strategy still continued to work. I actually got a lot of great advice from Jadah when we were in Australia together speaking at Darren Rowse’s ProBlogger event and getting some really, really specific advice on how to run a challenge myself, which is what you spoke about.

I have been running this challenge kind of in an evergreen manner ever since then—100Emails.com, to help people build their email list, which then converts users into a ConvertKit account through my affiliate links. It is producing affiliate income, so thank you, Jadah, for that because that was pretty special to see that go down and have all the tactics in place from there. But my question for you related to this book proposal—which what an analogy to give, I completely understand that—did she know when you were writing that, that you were exiting, or when did that conversation start?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah so I exited, signed a contract November 2016, but it was actually almost a year before where we started getting curious about where my commitments were and where I was going. I did a keynote presentation at World Domination Summit and I feel that was just like a trickle effect of how obsessed I am about talking about business and marketing and going after your dreams. We started working with a coach to help us get clear on, “Does Jadah want to stay, or is Jadah ready for that next chapter in her business?” I got pretty clear in January of 2016 that it was time for me to move on, but it took me almost a year to actually be like, “Okay, yes, we’re going to do it. We’re going to sign the contract.”

It was one of those things where I knew it was the right next step and I was still so scared. I built a business where my husband was able to quit his job of thirteen years, so it almost had that same thing of people who are exiting a corporate, you know, their nine-to-five job, where you’re like, “I know how much money is coming” and all of these things. One of my biggest fears was that no one, which is ironic, no one would want to interview me on their podcasts anymore because I wasn’t behind Simple Green Smoothies anymore. No one would want me to speak on stages anymore, when we just talked about how we just spoke in Australia together last year. But I just thought everyone would kind of forget about me. Like, that my identity or my worth or my value was attached to the business that I built.

Pat Flynn: Wow. I can imagine that being a very difficult decision, but I think the question that everybody is wondering is why would you leave such a thing? It was a beautiful . . . I mean, it is a beautiful business. It’s a beautiful book that you guys wrote together and a beautiful story behind it.

Jadah Sellner: Yeah.

Pat Flynn: Tell us what was going through your head and why.

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, so can I tell you a secret, Pat?

Pat Flynn: Yeah. Can I publish . . . Wait, is this something I could publish or is this . . . ?

Jadah Sellner: It’s totally publishable!

Pat Flynn: Oh, okay.

Jadah Sellner: I’m not passionate about green smoothies. What I’m passionate about is helping people, and this dream had been planted before Simple Green Smoothies took off, before I had the parenting blog that Jen and I—actually that was our first iteration of business together. I learned how to spell the word entrepreneur when I was nine years old and I always had all of these ideas running in my mind. I would buy Google domains, you know, GoDaddy domains and website ideas, and just never got to follow through. Then, once I started my first brick and mortar business in Kauai and then Simple Green Smoothies took off, to me I was just looking for credibility and proof of concept that you can plant a dream and actually make it a reality.

Simple Green Smoothies really gave me that opportunity of proof of concept, that people would actually listen to me, because I don’t have a college degree, I didn’t really have any business before telling people how to run their businesses, but I knew that the work that I’m doing today is actually the work that I’ve been wanting to do for many, many years and I actually . . . I wrote my three-year vision in, it was October 2013, which was actually just a few months after Jen and I had our first big launch. It was $86,000 in ten days and I already wanted to help other people build a successful business.

I actually read my three-year vision to her to have my coming out party of “I’m complete with this.” In that three-year vision I wrote, “My dream clients are world-changing moms who are building successful business empires. I work with these women one-on-one and in retreats.” This is before I ever had the JadahSellner.com website, before I ever offered any coaching or thought about it. It was a vision that was planted and I didn’t know how it was going to happen. When I went back to my three-year vision and I read it to Jen, it was like everything clicked and connected of like, “Ah, there’s more to your path and journey than Simple Green Smoothies.”

Pat Flynn: For you internally, that’s when it kind of all came together and it made sense that there was much more to be done, and many more kinds of people to serve.

Jadah Sellner: Yes.

Pat Flynn: I would imagine that—and I don’t want to get into super, deep details of like the partnership and those kinds of things. I do have a couple higher-level questions related to that, because I think this is interesting. A lot of us are building businesses that maybe perhaps have partners, or might one day have a partner and we want to know what happens, so I appreciate you sharing all this. But when you read that three-year vision to Jen, I mean, I can see that being taken in a few ways. I think more than anything, you shared that early before any decisions were made versus like, “Hey, Jen. I know that I’ve been here for a number of years, but I’m out next week. I’m sorry.”

Jadah Sellner: Right, right, right. No, we definitely had a long transition period. We were very well-prepared and we both . . . I think the time, even though it felt like my heart was ready for the next step, and I think a lot of people experience this, there’s also mental preparation that needs to happen and being able to inform our team. It’s just like, just doing it so delicately, and we really did it with a lot of intention, a lot of love. There was definitely fears and challenges along the way, but our intention was just so much integrity, and to do it in such a loving way. We ran a Mastermind group together with Todd Herman and our last in-person Mastermind meeting, we made an announcement of like, we’re consciously uncoupling. It was definitely—we had a lot of time to allow it to unfold and have all the pieces in place, so both of us felt as confident as you can when you don’t know what it’s going to be like on the other side, to really take care of each other, to take care of the team, and to take care of the community that we serve.

Pat Flynn: That’s wonderful. I think it’s important to have those kinds of people in your life that can help support you no matter which way you want to go. I think that’s a part of the reason why this is a very successful sort of move into the next area of your life for you. Now, you know I know, because we work together too, you have run these retreats. You are now serving these women that you’ve dreamt of serving and you’re serving even more now, which is great, so congratulations to you on successful transition, and all of what’s about to happen as well, which I’m sure is going to be even bigger and better than Simple Green Smoothies for you in reaching your goals. Going back into this transition, because man, there’s so many times in an entrepreneur’s life, as you know, especially now helping others too, where we could go a different direction. Right? As small as, “Oh, I don’t know if I should write a blog post about that or this today,” to something big like what you’ve done. A very common one that I know I’ve come across is perhaps I launch a product and it doesn’t go as well or as planned. I start questioning myself, I start questioning the direction I’m going, I kind of feel lost sometimes. How do you coach, or how would you recommend a person to wrap their head around really what they’re meant for, and having that influence what they do?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, so I think one thing is really paying attention to the work that you can’t not do, is really important. It’s like, I keep trying to not do this thing and it’s just like, all the signs, all the roads point in that direction. Oprah has a really great interview where she talks about this whisper that comes and you keep hearing it over and over again. You’re like, “No, no, no, no, no, that’s going to mess up everything.” Then she’s like, and then it turns into a pebble, and then it turns into a knock upside your head. Just paying attention to that whisper of where your heart, your soul is calling you, and I know that’s very fairy and dreamy, but then the tangible pieces that you add to the calling, to the whisper, is actually to embrace beta.

I have a friend, Amy, she said this term to me and it totally stuck, which is just embrace beta. So it’s not like you have to get it right the first time, and I don’t think we give ourselves enough opportunities to have a first rough draft, and so that piece of the puzzle is super important.

So something that I think a lot of people don’t know that I did while I was growing Simple Green Smoothies: I knew this calling was on the side, and so I invested my money into building a personal brand website: JadahSellner.com. And I’m like, “I’m just going to make up some offers and put them here just to like, kind of open . . . I’m open for business,” but then it was about testing. So every quarter I would test a different idea: A six week group coaching program, a two day in-person retreat, a ninety minute one on one call. So I just started trying things on to start building the next evolution of the business model that I would want it to lean into next.

And so if you can think about the things that . . . like, let it be okay to test and experiment and to try things on. And if for those who have nine to five jobs, it’s actually, don’t judge yourself or beat yourself up for having that, because it’s actually good that you can kind of fund your heart project.

So I talk about cash projects and heart projects, and sometimes your cash project is the nine to five job, but then you can pull that money and those resources into testing what the heart project is, and “can we turn the heart project into a viable business?”

Pat Flynn: Wow, I really love that. And it just makes it seem a little bit easier when you say it as, you know, just start something on the side, test it out. And what did you learn during that testing process over that year when you were building that?

Jadah Sellner: One thing that I learned was, I use jealousy. I call it being peanut butter and jelly about someone else’s business model or offer. So, when you see something that someone else is doing, I would use that as fuel of like, “that would be an interesting test for me to try on and do.” And what I would learn is once I did it, sometimes I’m like, “Well I don’t want to do that.” Like, we think that we want someone else’s business, and so the best way to get over the jealousy hump is just to try it on, put an offer out, and see if you even like it. Because we admire these businesses and these offers from afar.

And then I love this question that my right hand, Michelle, she’s on my team, she asks me after every new project or iteration that I do of something: Did that give you energy or did it drain you? And that is what I use, my filter of like, “did that give me energy or drain me?” And then I just delete it off my website and like, “you know what, I’m not doing ninety-minute calls for anybody anymore because it didn’t feel like I could get enough results for people in ninety minutes.” And so I like to be in it for the long game, a longer period of time when I’m coaching and mentoring people. And so I learned that. But it was one of my first offers, and then I just deleted it from my Work with Me page.

Pat Flynn: Wow. “Does it give you energy or does it drain you?” I love that as sort of a way to test whether or not, so nice job, Michelle. I like that test. What’s an example of something? So you had mentioned that the 90 minute calls were, that was something that kind of . . . you could tell that drained you, so you removed that option. What’s something that gave you a ton of energy after you experimented and tried with it?

Jadah Sellner: Oh, in-person retreats. Just bringing like minded women together in the same space of just saying your dreams out loud and brainstorming and ideating about marketing strategies, but doing it in a way that’s in alignment. There’s something . . . I led an event this past weekend, a three day event and the women, we were sitting in circle, we were meditating and just connecting to our breath, connecting to our heart and then going to head places.

So I’m very good at bridging heart to head. It’s like, “okay, we’re going to get in that dreamy place and then we’re going to talk business, we’re going to talk strategy, and we’re going to talk about implementing and taking action,” and you can just get so much done when you’re in the same room with people. Then you can even do online—and I’ve actually seen you do that with your Power-Up Podcasting course. You have the course, which is self study. And I did the self study course, which is one of maybe three courses I’ve ever completed from the beginning to the end.

Pat Flynn: Thank you.

Jadah Sellner: But you also have an in person version, where it’s like, “we can mull over something for six weeks or three months or three years, or we could just get it done in this concentrated amount of time.” And I just don’t think there’s anything better than bringing people face to face, heart to heart, together. And so that lights me up so much. And it’s not even about the teaching and the training as much as it’s about bringing people together to just be in the same room, who are interested in the same things, and that is the power of community building.

Pat Flynn: That’s really cool. I want to ask you questions about that, but I do want to mention that the Power-Up Podcasting Fast Track Workshop, as we call it, is a two-day event that happens over a weekend here in San Diego. It happens every once in a while. I’ll have links in the show notes if you’re curious about that. But I tried it out for the first time in September of 2017 as an experiment. Like, exactly what you’re talking about, because I was just like, “I don’t know if this is gonna work or not.”

First of all, I didn’t know if it was even going to sell. So you know, part of the experiment is, “Is this even something people want? And yes, they signed up for it rather quickly. And then I did it and then Jess my executive assistant asked a similar question afterwards, michelle reminded me of this, and she goes, “So are we doing it again or not?” and you know, and I’m like, “We’re doing it again,” because I just was on such a high, too. I agree with you on the in person retreats, but I’ll tell you, I don’t know if you felt this way too Jadah, but I was scared. I was nervous. I’d never done anything like that before. And I’m thankful that I’m at a point in my entrepreneurial journey now where I know that that fear means I need to do it. And then of course once it gets started it’s like, “Oh, this is awesome. I want to do more. And this is great. It’s just everything leading up to it.” It’s like . . . it’s like if you are going skydiving. I’ve never been because I’m scared of heights.

Jadah Sellner: Which means you have to do it.

Pat Flynn: Okay, Jadah, No. I heard Will Smith talk about this. He says the point at which you have the most fear when you’re skydiving is when you’re on the plane, when you’re safe. But then once you jump out of the plane or push off, you’re blissful, you’re flying, and you’re freed, you’re happy, even though that’s actually the point of maximum danger. And I think it’s the same way for us too. Did you feel a lot of fear and nervousness before your retreat?

Jadah Sellner: Every single one that I do.

Pat Flynn: Oh, even in sub sequential ones, you still feel this?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah. You know, anytime that I’m doing something new curriculum-wise or you know—and I’m sure you feel the same thing, when we’re preparing for speeches as well. It’s like the one that you’ve done before, you’re kind of like, “Sweet. I know what I’m going to say.” But it’s that first one, where you don’t know if what you teach or share is going to land yet.

And so there is that. And I’m a last minute . . . I just have to own it, that I don’t do things until like two to three days before. I’m like, the schedule, I’m thinking about it, you know, for several weeks. But it’s like—it’s that pressure cooker, the last moment where I make the final decisions on the pieces, and putting them all together, and they come together beautifully, and then I contact my designer who I actually met at the 1 Day Business Breakthrough, when we first met in person for your and Chris Tucker’s event.

And I still work with Chris Beltran, and he just did last minute designs for me last week. I was like, “I really wanted to get you this two weeks ago.” And he’s like, “I completely understand. I’m the same way.”

Yeah, there’s so much fear that is being built up during that time. I’m the same way with talks, of just being in front of people, you know? But at the same time when I’m onstage, I’m like, “I love this, this is amazing.” And then everyone comes up to you after and then you’re like, “Let’s do it again.” And then you forget what comes with that, all the fear and the nervousness and the adrenaline.

Pat Flynn: How come the fear shows up when it’s something that we could love so much?

Jadah Sellner: I love that question, and what I’ve noticed for me preparing for a TEDx talk, preparing, you know, even putting a published book out there, when you’re live and then you know it might be recorded or recorded in people’s minds and hearts from the experience, like, you can’t edit anything, you can’t delete it. And so that’s for me where that fear or pressure, that extra level of pressure comes, for me.

It’s like, “people are gonna see this and I can’t take it back.” You know, we can edit a blog post, we can delete a podcast episode, we can remove, you know, a social media post, but there’s other things that are a little bit more permanent that people will experience, or it’s recorded and it’s published publicly and you don’t have control to get rid of it. That’s for me, that’s where the fear comes from, is like, I want to get it right.

Pat Flynn: And is that true for everybody, or do different people have different reasons to essentially almost self-sabotage themselves?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, I just had a good conversation with Jill Stanton from Screw the Nine to Five, and I think a common theme that I see for women is we want to over-give. We want to do it right. And so there’s this fear that we might disappoint somebody or let them down, and our worth is caught up in that. And so there’s that . . . you know, there’s studies around like, we want to feel that sense of belonging and if we feel like we won’t belong, there’s a fear in that. There’s like a natural fear in our bodies that’s like, “No, no, no, I don’t want to be outed from this group. I want everyone to like me.”

Pat Flynn: Right. Oh, there’s so many ways that we can go in this conversation related to that, but I do want to talk about where you’re headed now and kind of what your goals are and how you are realizing those things. I mean, what was it like after that last day? I don’t know if you had a specific date or you were like, “All right, that’s my last day of work.” Even though it wasn’t really work-work. But it was with your partner. Like what was it like immediately after? Because Simple Green Smoothies was such a big part of your life, did you feel like something was missing? Or was it like a weight off your shoulder? Or kind of what was going through your head at that point?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, it was definitely a sense of relief because there was so much buildup to the exit. So it was almost like there was this space and openness and possibility on the other side. But there was also grieving, you know, like I was used to having a full team that I built, you know, products in place, community in place. There were systems in place.

So there was a sense of grieving and not having, you know, a partner to bounce ideas off of with on a consistent basis. It was like, “Oh, I’m the only decision maker in the company now.” And so that rebuilding and you know, I spent the following year actually . . . I think I worked and traveled for—I mean I traveled for about 100 days out of 2017, and I think it was just needing to kind of reset and realign and reconnect with my family during that time, and it felt really, really good and also like, “Wait, what did I say I was going to build again on the other side of this?”

But I mean, even with my personal brand, because I was so intentional with testing those offerings while I was still in Simple Green Smoothies, I actually was able to have a multiple six-figure business my first full year on my own, and that would not have happened had I not done the test and iterations every quarter along the way.

And so I just, for those who have kids and partners, it’s okay to build slow on the side. I give you full permission to be intentional and strategic so you just don’t burn everything down.

Pat Flynn: What about the aspect of moving from Simple Green Smoothies, which is Simple Green Smoothies—it has its own sort of realm of things that it talks about obviously, and yes you were, you know, seen in that brand to now the brand is your name. I mean, your website is JadahSellner.com. What have been some of the big challenges for you related to the personal brand and the development of that, that differs from Simple Green Smoothies?

Jadah Sellner: Oh, it’s been such a struggle, Pat, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to work with you and be part of your SPI Accelerator, because I feel like you do a great job of infusing, you know, putting your family and your health first and showing up as you are.

I just want to share a quick story that I noticed, and then I’ll go into the challenges. But I was inside your Facebook group for Power-Up Podcasting and people were asking about, “We want to learn about list building from you, Pat.” And everyone was talking about, you know, Amy Porterfield’s course, and people were just saying like, “No, but I want to learn it from you, Pat.” So there’s something very powerful about having that personal brand, right? To show up as who you are in the world, that people are attracted to you.

So I always say there are no unique messages, only unique messengers, and so we can feel like somebody’s already done this business model before or somebody, you know, wrote a book about that, and I just want you to throw that out the window. Just know that your idea might not necessarily be the most original in town. We don’t have to make up these fancy titles that no one’s ever heard of, you know, like “I’m a business strategist maven queen bee,” you know, when people are like, “What is that and what do they do?”

You know we can, we can keep it simple. We can keep the message simple. But where the unique blueprint comes in is you being who you are, and I think that you have done such a phenomenal job with that. And I just wanted to share that story to highlight the power of the personal branding because even though they could get great information from Amy, they still want to learn from you. So that’s something.

Pat Flynn: Thank you for that. I mean, that’s why the podcasting course exists in the first place, is because my audience was asking me for that, even though I was always giving people a few other recommendations that I had. Yet they still wanted to get it from me. They wouldn’t have started a podcast unless I helped them do it. That’s really cool. So I am glad you’re sharing this, in terms of the power behind a personal brand, because now you are creating a personal brand. In what way are you . . .

Jadah Sellner: Struggling?

Pat Flynn: Yeah, sure. I mean, yeah, I mean thank you for being honest and up front with us because this is really nice to hear, especially from somebody who has built a very successful business and now is creating her own thing. Like, what are the struggles right now?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah. So I think, you know, one of the struggles is definitely using my name. I just didn’t know what the business idea was in 2014, and I was like, “Well, I know one thing that’s not going to change: my name.” So it’s just for me to get out of the indecision, and then a struggle is also with—it feels for me right now . . . this is true for me right now . . . it can feel more selfish, more self-absorbed, and I know that’s not true, but that’s what it feels like to me. Where I’m like “Oh, if it was a company, then it’s more about the movement and the community and it’s not the Jadah Sellner Show.” And people wanted me to have the podcast—“like it should be your name.” Actually Azhul, who was a good mutual friend of ours and does the book coaching, he’s like, “But you, your name,” and I’m just like “No, I cannot.” It’s just so much easier for me when it’s a company name, a movement, a community. I do struggle with it being personal brand.

And then another thing is, as much as I identify with building a beautiful lifestyle and have a business that supports that, I don’t want to glorify my own lifestyle, even though I know it can be aspirational. I do travel a lot with my family to really cool places. I’m speaking on stages. I’m meeting really cool people. I’ve spoken on stages with you, and Gary Vaynerchuk, and and Seth Godin. Just all these cool people, but I actually don’t share about it a lot or enough, because there’s this fear in me that doesn’t want to feel like I’m bragging or gloating, or also creating a myth that you can only have a successful business if you’re speaking on these stages. You can only have a successful business if you’re doing, X, Y, Z.

I also don’t want to paint this false picture of, “Here’s the steps you need to be successful.” I do truly want people to create that own definition of success for themselves, and you don’t have to speak on big stages to build a profitable business that helps people and changes people’s lives. And also you don’t have to have . . . we built our email list to 355,000 email subscribers, and I don’t want people to think that “Well, if I never build it to that, then I’m not going to have a business, so why even start? That’s just too hard.”

One thing that I love testing with my personal brand, was I did a beta launch and it had 300 people on the waitlist for my Build Your Challenge online course, and it was a $20,000 launch, and it was a test. I had not created the course yet. It was going to be a live four-hour workshop. I wanted to prove that you don’t need a big audience to make a difference in the world. And so I think part of the personal brand struggle for me is I have accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, and I don’t want to glorify that where people think, “That’s the only way I can be successful.”

Pat Flynn: Mm-hmm. Well first of all, congratulations on the launch with a list of 300. That takes care of that objection there, right?

Jadah Sellner: Yes.

Pat Flynn: It’s interesting, when you were sharing all these things in your head, you were also following them up with the reality of basically telling . . . I don’t know if you’re telling yourself or telling all of us, or maybe both, that well, that’s not true. You don’t need that in order to be successful. And I think that just naturally what’s going to happen is you’ll find, Jadah, over time . . . because I do similar things. I have a very large brand. It’s Smart Passive Income, and I do share my income reports and places I go and people I see. But because it’s always me and because I’m always looking to “How does that sharing of this serve them?” then that always cushions the bragging part of it.

Jadah Sellner: Right.

Pat Flynn: With the income reports, for example, it wasn’t just “Hey, guys. Look at how much money I made last night. All right, here’s what happened. This went up, this went down. Here’s what you need to know so this doesn’t happen to you,” kind of thing. When I go to speak on stages, it’s often about the journey to get there, not about the fact that I am there, and those kinds of things. And I think injecting those kinds of things in your business will just—that’s naturally you anyway. And I would just say don’t be afraid to share these things, because they are aspirational.

And when they connect with you, for you, yet you are still able to reach those heights, people want to come along for the ride, and they believe they can do it too, because they know where you came from. And I think that’s the big thing. I never fail to, and I purposefully always remind people about my story and where I came from, because it’s now been ten years. It’s almost ten years since I got let go. But that let go story continues to come back. This is why I wrote the book Let Go, is to give people a full account of the fact that I wasn’t born into this. I didn’t go to business school. This happened in my life, and it was one of the hardest things I’d ever gone through, but here’s what it turned into.

I would encourage you just to be more open with those kinds of things as you build your personal brand, because that’s personal and unique and original to you. And you’re already doing these things, I’m just telling you that you’re—

Jadah Sellner: No, they’re great. I’m writing notes, writing down, “Yes, yes, that’s a great one.”

Pat Flynn: This isn’t a coaching call. But you’re so personable. Use that to your advantage, and I get inspired when I see you in different places and on TEDx Talks. And as you know, marketing-wise, that’s proof that you are somebody to pay attention to. And so you can serve and share and sell at the same time.

Jadah Sellner: Absolutely. Yeah, I think that’s a great reminder, and it’s also . . . another struggle that I want to share with the personal brand and transitioning, I noodled for several months of writing a coming out letter of, “Okay, I’m not at Simple Green Smoothies anymore and here is who I am today.” And that actually can be a really hard question to answer, that we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to say who we are and we want to inspire and activate people. I spend many months and many life coaching calls, mastermind calls, spending time on figuring out how I was going to announce it publicly to the rest of the world.

And I made it a really, really big deal behind the scenes, where everyone’s like, on the outside people are just going to get it and they’re going to be okay, but I definitely spent some few months of like, who am I? What do I stand for? What am I known for now? And also the challenge of being known as the Green Smoothie Girl or the List-Building Challenge Girl, and just finding my voice along the way of what really matters to me. And I know one of the questions that you asked was what am I up to today? And one thing that I got really clear with the podcast, and actually Pat, people listen to the first episode that we did together, that interview that we did. The Ebooks the Smart Way, that was instrumental for Simple Green Smoothies’s growth. And then us speaking at ProBlogger, I was just like, “I’m so interested in your Power-Up Podcasting course, and I want to get access. I know it’s closed,” and you just spoke a certain word to me that was just so helpful. You were just like, “You’re one of the good ones.”

That just stuck with me, and then you shared some really insightful tips on how I could leverage the podcast and I’ve been thinking about podcasts for a while, but that was the shift. The power of someone seeing you, I think, is so important, and so I feel like you really saw me, and I was able to like, “All right, I’m going to do this course. I’m going to set a date, February 14th. Lead with Love.” And when I got clear with what the podcast means to me, is it my mission. The podcast is for me to use my voice for good and to share access with mentors, authors, business leaders that I’ve had the privilege of meeting, to make those voices and their experiences accessible to anyone in the world. That it is free to give. I don’t look at my podcast as a marketing strategy. I do believe I’m in it for the long game, and accessibility is a really big word for me, of being a woman of color, being a mom, and being married and starting a business with no business degree, that what I’ve learned I can share with more people.

Pat Flynn: Well, you are one of the good ones, Jadah, which is why I resonate with you and your message and your new direction so much, and I want to do everything I can to support you with that. And I’m imaging that there are going to be people who are listening to this right now who are like, “Jadah’s—that’s who I need right now.” If that is what they’re thinking, where should they go to find out more?

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, if you want to learn just more about me for big picture, you can go to JadahSellner.com, and then if you’re someone that’s like, “I’m a woman, I’m a creative, and I’m building and growing a business. I’m wanting to really move to that next level,” you can actually go to LoveoverMetrics.com, which is an incubator that I have started for women, building businesses in a way that is aligned, and we focus on three key things:

One is ideation, being able to test and experiment, and if you guys haven’t read Pat’s Let Go, it would be a perfect place of what ideation really means. And then integration, so actually creating an intentional plan on how you’re going to execute that. And then implementation, we’re actually going to take action. We co-work together. We mastermind—and really building a business where we’re leading with love in our companies, in our lives as leaders, and not compromising our health and our relationships in the process. Because I know as a woman, as a mom, there is a pull and a tug between our personal family life and how we show up in our businesses. It’s something that I’m super passionate about, is people taking action on ideas worth implementing in the world.

Pat Flynn: So awesome. Thank you, Jadah. And I love the term Love over Metrics, as we do get a little swayed by the numbers every once in a while, and I think that it all starts with love and caring and serving, and the metrics will happen after that.

Jadah Sellner: Yeah, yeah. Numbers matter in business. We both know that.

Pat Flynn: Yes.

Jadah Sellner: We need numbers to have a sustainable, profitable business where we can take care of our team. Love over Metrics doesn’t mean that numbers don’t matter. It just means love first. It means people first. It means remembering the humans and the beating hearts behind the numbers, so we don’t get caught up in, “How many followers do I have? How big is my email list? How much money did that bring in?” It’s like, we still have to come back to “Are we fully showing up to serve our community, to solve problems, and to create transformation in their lives?” And if we can come from that place first . . . and you were on the Lead With Love podcast, and you illustrated this so beautifully, it’s just service first. Serve first.

Pat Flynn: Jadah, thank you so much for this inspirational chat today, and I think it’s going to help out a lot of people, especially those who are in those transitional periods in their lives, and so nothing else to say, but thank you for being you, and I’m so excited about this new journey that you’ve started a long time ago. And it’s only going to grow and get bigger, and you’re only going to serve more people, and I hope those of you in the audience who want to connect with Jadah do. Jadah, thank you so much. I appreciate you, and I look forward to your next episode, and everybody should check out your podcasts, and we’ll have all the notes and stuff on the show notes page, but thank you again for coming on.

SPI 329: One of the Most Important Business Conversations You Need to Have with Yourself—with Dan Andrews https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/most-important-business-conversations-dan-andrews/ https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/most-important-business-conversations-dan-andrews/#comments Wed, 01 Aug 2018 15:00:00 +0000 https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/?p=128435 Dan Andrews from TropicalMBA.com is on the show today, and he’s about to lay down some real talk. He’s the author of Before the Exit: Thought Experiments for Entrepreneurs, and he was prompted to write that book because he did something in his business that he kind of regretted. He’s here to share questions and thought experiments you can use so that you don’t have similar thoughts and feelings later down the road.

Dan and I were both members of the Internet Business Mastery Academy back in the day, and he went on to build a million-dollar valet business overseas. It’s been great to catch up with him, but I didn’t realize the extent to which he’d gone down a path in his business that he didn’t truly want to go down, and that path was actually selling his business.

What do you do when you’re thinking about exiting your business? Should you exit your business, and how do you determine the right course of action? What are some of the costs around exiting, and what does that process look like? Not a lot of entrepreneurs know this, but 50 percent of people who exit their business regret it, and they don’t just regret it, they’re actually devastated about it. Today, Dan’s giving you the wisdom and advice you need to make a smart decision.

If you have a business partner, this is a great episode to listen to together, because these are the questions you should be discussing. If you don’t have a business partner, it’s time to have these conversations with yourself. Enjoy!

Dan Andrews: In the online business space, Pat, this happens all the time. What happens is someone comes in and says, “Look, jobs are an inefficient way to make a living.” We all nod our heads. That’s true. They’re a horrible time and money investment, so let’s start a business. You keep going down the path. The problem is, is that jobs do so much more for us, and let’s use the word career, than just give us money.

Pat Flynn: That’s Dan Andrews from TropicalMBA.com, a friend of mine for over a decade now actually, somebody who had recently done something in his business that he kind of regretted. We’re going to talk all about that today. Hopefully you’ll be able to have these important conversations with yourself now so you don’t have these similar feelings and thoughts later.

Before we get to that, let’s cue the music.

Announcer: Welcome to the Smart Passive Income Podcast, where it’s all about working hard now so you can sit back and reap the benefits later. And now your host—he’s learning to play the guitar from scratch and loving every minute of it—Pat Flynn!

Pat Flynn: Thank you for joining me today in session 329 of the Smart Passive Income Podcast. My name is Pat Flynn, here to help you make more money, save more time, and help more people too. I’m thankful that you are here with me and our guest, Dan Andrews, today.

Dan, he and I were actually back in the day when I started out, we were both members of the Internet Business Mastery Academy. That’s where I got to know him and his amazing business overseas helping in the valet industry. He had built this million dollar business. It was good to catch up with him, although I didn’t realize to the extent at which he had taken a direction that he didn’t want to go down. We’re going to talk all about that today. We’re going to unpack the lessons learned so that you don’t go through the same thing too. If you have a business partner, this may be one of those episodes that you might want to listen with them or suggest they listen to as well. If you’re by yourself, then you’d have these conversations with yourself, obviously. Anyway, thank you so much. Let’s just dive right in.

Dan, what’s up, man? Welcome back to the SPI Podcast. How are you?

Dan Andrews: I’m good, man. Thanks for giving me a ring.

Pat Flynn: Yeah, man. It’s been a while. It’s been a long time actually since we’ve last chatted. I’m glad we connected actually through Twitter direct messages because you’ve got some interesting stuff that has happened since. Why don’t you give—

Dan Andrews: It’s worth saying, Pat, I’m pretty sure you were in my first mastermind, like maybe even before I knew what a mastermind was. Do you remember this?

Pat Flynn: Way back in Internet Business Mastery days, right?

Dan Andrews: That’s right. Yeah. In San Diego. You guys were like the first real internet people I ever met.

Pat Flynn: Were you at the table at Panera Bread in Mira Mesa when I showed up as this like nerdy, like “I have no idea what I’m doing here” person?

Dan Andrews: I remember. I remember when you were mulling over whether or not to do the income reports. You were like, “I’m going to do this.”

Pat Flynn: Yeah.

Dan Andrews: That was the moment that I remember.

Pat Flynn: This was after … Yeah, okay. That’s right. We played Frisbee golf together a couple times, right?

Dan Andrews: That’s right. Yeah.

Pat Flynn: Yeah, which we didn’t really do any masterminding while doing Frisbee golf, but it was still a lot of fun, man. You were there in the early days of my entrepreneurial life. You’ve had a lot of influence on just inspiring me right from the get-go, you along with Sean Nunan, Mark Mason, and obviously Jeremy and Jason from Internet Business Mastery. It’s definitely been a long time since then.

What have you been up to? I know you had some businesses and you were working in the Philippines, Tropical MBA, all this stuff. What’s been going on?

Dan Andrews: Yeah. At that time, I was running this ecommerce business that sold valet parking equipment, mobile cocktail bars, and cat furniture.

Pat Flynn: That’s right.

Dan Andrews: I kept growing that business until 2015 when we exited, me and my business partner, Ian. I’ve basically spent the last couple years processing that exit and speaking with a bunch of entrepreneurs who’ve been through that process.

Pat Flynn: That’s the dream, right? You build something, you exit, you get a load of money, and then life’s good, right?

Dan Andrews: 100 percent, that’s the posted about dream on the internet, but the reality isn’t spoken about. Here’s what I found, Pat, is that 50 percent of entrepreneurs who exit their business aren’t just like a little bummed about it, they’re devastated about it.

Pat Flynn: Really?

Dan Andrews: Yeah. Why don’t we talk about this on the internet?

Pat Flynn: That’s why we’re here.

Dan Andrews: That’s why we’re here. I’ll be the sacrificial lamb and come out and be the guy who’s going to say, “Yes, someone did pay us a bunch of money, but there’s a lot about this process that I wasn’t ready for.” I wish I had known so many things before going through this. I have some misgivings, some regrets, but today I don’t want to dwell on all that. What I want to do is equip the audience with five thought experiments, sort of fun and profitable questions that they can ask themselves from day one. Even if you’re just thinking about starting a business, everyone’s going to exit, whether it’s your choice or not. What your exit plans are and what your personal financial goals are is going to affect the way that you run your business, and it’s going to help you end up on the right side of that 50 percent divide, because those aren’t good odds. You’re not talking about something that you get to do 10 or 15 times in a career. We’re talking about a handful of times at best that you’re going to get a chance to exit a business.

Pat Flynn: I appreciate you coming on and sharing this with us because a lot of entrepreneurs, we just kind of dive right in without really thinking a lot about this. I think especially for the beginners in the audience, and there’s quite a few of you, this is going to be a really important thing to think about. I love thought experiments. The first few chapters of my book Will It Fly? are all about thought experiments.

I’m interested in this too, Dan, because I’m building businesses, physical product businesses, similar to sort of what you just talked about, and obviously the online stuff too. Some of those businesses are businesses that are created to potentially be a sellout. SPI is obviously not one of those because I’m forever going to be tied to that brand, but other things, yeah. Honestly, I haven’t done any research on this. My goal was to just like build big, grow fast, sell out, and enjoy life, but now I’m wondering if that’s the right thing to do, and I’m wondering if actually maybe I shouldn’t have done these businesses in the first place, or tried to start.

Let’s dive right in. Where do we start with this, man?

Dan Andrews: I think what we ought to do is set the context for … When you think about, “Hey, what’s my business worth?”, or, “I’m thinking about selling”, or, “I want to free up some mental RAM. I’m getting bored”, which is actually a really common motivation, is selling to solve problems, which end up existing on the other side of your exit anyway. You’re going to encounter a whole professional services industry. One of the lessons that I’ve learned is that they’re focused on such a very small percentage of this total process of the exit. Their role is to help you get the paperwork done, help make sure everything’s legal, make sure the process goes through the right steps, but if you’re selling a business that’s of any meaningful size, it could take two, three years of your life. That’s a huge emotional process that you’re not going to be able to outsource to these professionals. Since it’s a pretty rare thing to do, relatively speaking, it’s going to be hard to find this information. Like I’m saying it’s absolutely critical to meet people that have been through this process and can share with you the extent.

The punchline here, Pat, is unfortunately, you’re not going to be able to trust the professionals because the professionals are on team deal. They’re not going to be on team you having a great exit, even if that’s their sales pitch to you.

Pat Flynn: Do these professionals have a name, like is there an industry that we can call them by, or is it just like your attorneys and escrow people and the whole thing?

Dan Andrews: I think the most important thing is the business brokers because the business brokers get business by letting the market know that they’re experts on how to create deals. While that’s true, they’re not expert in you having a satisfying exit. The values are very differently aligned. You might think of this like in the real estate marketplace. Your real estate agent isn’t incentivized to help you maximize how much your home is worth. They’re incentivized to make sure the home gets sold.

Those sorts of nuances seem obvious on the surface, but when you’re in the process of two years, you’re getting jerked around by different potential buyers and tire-kickers, you’re emotionally exhausted, and there’s no one around you that’s going through this similar circumstance, it’s easy to call up your broker and to say, “Oh, man. What’s going on?”, and to believe everything they’re saying. You should listen, but the bottom line is as with everything in business, you’re ultimately responsible for how this goes. Part of the reason I wrote the book is to try to tell the stories of these entrepreneurs and say, “Look, you’re going to have to live with this for the rest of your life. You have to take responsibility and have some enthusiasm for this project, even if the reason you got into it in the first place was because you’re sick of running your business.”

Pat Flynn: Yeah. What’s the name of the book?

Dan Andrews: The name of the book is called Before the Exit: Thought Experiments for Entrepreneurs. I recommend people thinking with the exit in mind as they’re starting, as they’re considering what kind of business they want to get into.

Pat Flynn: Let me play devil’s advocate there. There’s going to be people out there who are like, “Isn’t it bad to think about exiting when you’re starting a business? Aren’t you setting yourself up for failure? Doesn’t that mean you’re not going to put your all into it because you’re already out of it?”

Dan Andrews: Commonly the advice that follows when people say, “Consider your business with the end in mind” is they’ll say things like, “Make sure you build processes. Make sure you’re not baked into the business. Make sure your EBITDA or your net profit is maximized so that it’s … “ All that stuff is such a small percentage of this. Actually, I think our businesses are more important to us than we often realize. They’re not just a way that we earn a living. It’s not just how we pay the bills. These are our identities, our sense of service, our community, our team, our tribe. Sometimes we throw the baby out with the bathwater when we say, “It’s just a way that I pay the bills.” It’s much more than that. In that sense, Pat, I think we ought to consider our values and what we’re building from day one.

Pat Flynn: For sure.

Dan Andrews: Why don’t we look at some of these thought experiments and maybe you could see if it might be worth considering afterwards?

Pat Flynn: Yeah. Let’s go into it.

Dan Andrews: Okay. The first one is called The Lifestyle Ladder. You could pull out a sheet and you can construct what are the meaningful levels of cash in your personal bank account that make a difference in your life. I can start by sharing some of mine. You can give me feedback whether they match up with yours.

Pat Flynn: Sure.

Dan Andrews: The first one for me is being in debt, which is … I’m a complete expert at that topic because I was in debt for a great long time, probably when I met you. The next step is being broke. Big difference there. For me, the next level was when I got on the Dave Ramsey train, financial freedom, and I got $20,000 to $40,000 in personal savings. That was a really big deal to me.

Now the next level that I had an appreciable difference in my life was having six figures in savings and a business that gave me the cash flow. Something has emerged here that wasn’t intuitive to me, which is that the amount of cash that you have isn’t linear. It doesn’t behave linear. In other words, going from $0 to $20,000 in your bank account is a life changer, but going from $20,000 to $40,000 isn’t. It doesn’t make much of a difference in your actual lifestyle.

Why is this important? Because when you’re thinking about selling an asset that you built for three times earnings, that asset is an incredible platform to expose you to opportunities. All the reasons we want to grow a business, there’s a lot of value there. If you’re going to exit it for a number that doesn’t get you to an appreciable next level, then you’re sort of stuck in no man’s land.

The specific example in my case, Pat . . . I don’t want to define everybody’s lifestyle ladder for them, that’s up for everyone’s personal financial goals. I’ve asked a lot of people this question. It’s like a fun cocktail party game. It’s kind of like, “What’s your number? What’s your freedom line? What’s the number you want to make in your life so that you can shelf financial questions for a lifetime?” It’s an interesting question.

For me, I thought a low seven figure payday would get me to an appreciable next level, and the reality is that my life didn’t change very much. I gave up a big asset in order to get to sort of this no man’s land level that’s not quite the level where I could do the sorts of things I thought I could, like maybe be an angel investor and make high-risk investments or maybe put aside a career for a while and do other things. I just didn’t sit down and think about it in detail because people were waving around a lot of money in front of your face and it looks impressive.

Pat Flynn: There was like a disconnect in what you had expected to happen versus reality after the sale.

Dan Andrews: Here’s the thing, Pat. It’s like so easy, I’m talking about five minutes here, just to sit down with your partner, with your best friend, whoever, and just say, “Hey, let’s take a look at it in detail. What is the reality of being an angel investor look like? Do you really want to be that? Is having x amount of money really going to open up doors?” For some people … People, like you say … If you’re a real estate agent, if you’re into the real estate game, getting a $2 million to $3 million payday could potentially be a complete lifechanger from how having that financial platform level I was talking about, which is 6K, or 6 figures, in savings.

Pat Flynn: Right.

Dan Andrews: Again, it’s for everybody to figure out what that next level in their ladder is and whether or not selling out of your business is going to help get to you an appreciable next level. If not, you might consider holding on to it and taking advantage of the opportunities that it exposes you to.

Pat Flynn: Right. I can even imagine going through a thought experiment where I have this next level that I want to reach. I get an offer potentially for a sale, and I see that it doesn’t get me there, so I know that internally, this isn’t really going to make a big difference. Then I hold off, but then I see that that next level is actually not too far off, so I can either renegotiate that deal or work a little bit harder or put things into place so that the valuation of the company is at that level, in which case then I would just know. I think what we’re doing here is using the future essentially to remove the guesswork from any of this and to stop reacting and actually just start paying attention.

Dan Andrews: 100 percent. One of the things I said in the book is the professionals around you are going to have a lot of dialogue about whether or not it’s a good deal, but at the end of the day, all that matters is whether or not it’s a good deal for you. That’s what we’re looking for here.

Pat Flynn: What were you feeling when you sold and you were like, “Well, this didn’t … “ What was going through your head?

Dan Andrews: It’s an interesting thing because originally I called the book “The Devil’s Advocate” because like this idea of exiting your business is one in the entrepreneurial space that’s universally lauded. It’s like the first line on your bio, “Exited for x amount or whatever.” I didn’t know what I felt, but I think in retrospect, I was sort of depressed about it, but I wasn’t aware that I was depressed about it because it was this supposedly amazing thing. I just sort of drifted along, feeling a little bit off.

It wasn’t until I started talking to people about this that I saw this whole world, this entire entrepreneurial conversation that’s simply not being had.

Pat Flynn: You had mentioned earlier that you felt perhaps a little bit of regret. What was the change in … I’m curious. What was the change in your daily life, and did that affect you in any way?

Dan Andrews: That’s a good question. My daily life didn’t actually change so much. It was more these soft values that I didn’t think were that important because they were so general and large. Things like legacy. I know you talk about that on the podcast. It’s an appealing concept, but it was never one that I like personally associated with. Things like service, community, identity … We had a great team. We had so many great accomplishments. Those things were more meaningful to me than I thought they were. It took me a long time to peel through all that.

Pat Flynn: Yeah. That’s interesting. Wow. Now I’m glad we’re having this—

Dan Andrews: In the online business space, Pat, this happens all the time. What happens is someone comes in and says, “Look, jobs are an inefficient way to make a living.” We all nod our heads. That’s true. They’re a horrible time and money investment, so let’s start a business. You keep going down the path. The problem is, is that jobs do so much more for us, and let’s use the word career, than just give us money. That’s the thing—

Pat Flynn: Form friendships—

Dan Andrews: Yeah, and like a sense of service, a sense of identity, a sense of daily pride, a routine.

Pat Flynn: Routine, yeah.

Dan Andrews: The thing is you sell your business and what’s like the first cliché imagine is that you’re at some resort in Mexico. You’re like, “I made it!”

Pat Flynn: Yeah. Now what?

Dan Andrews: It’s like, “Where did you make it to? You could have gone there anyway.”

Pat Flynn: Yeah. It’s funny because one of the biggest struggles for entrepreneurs is getting back to where there is a schedule where they can start to finally start making sanity of their … They’re either overworking or underworking. They have no idea because there’s no structure anymore, so that is interesting.

Dan Andrews: Absolutely.

Pat Flynn: Okay. Thought experiment one, I love it. Now we’re getting to a point where I can make decisions based on future pacing and “what life would be like if” kind of things. Where do we go from there?

Dan Andrews: Number two thought experiment is called The Mock Tax Rebate, featuring the Mediocre CEO Test.

Pat Flynn: Long title.

Dan Andrews: There needs to be a t-shirt that says “Mediocre CEO” by the way.

Here’s the idea. The idea is as my business grew in scale, it becomes easier to lose sleep over it, as a founder, as a leader. You worry about bad things happening to it. We worried about all the money that we had in our product inventory. We worried about another global financial crisis, as many homeowners do. What happens if we go through like what we went through in 2007 again?

The one thing that many people don’t consider is that when you exit, you will go through a global financial crisis that’s focused specifically on your asset, which is that you’ll pay enormous taxes and professional fees. What I ask readers to do in this Mock Tax Rebate … Again, you don’t need to read the book to do this stuff. Sit down with a piece of paper and say, “Look, I’m just going to give you back a fraction of what you’re going to pay if you sell this thing.” Calculate out quickly your broker fee, which is often close to 10 percent, factor in your tax rate that you’re going to pay on this, and say, “What could you do with this money in your business?”

Again, a lot of people think of their businesses as their job, and that’s part of the reason they want to sell them. It’s like, “Man, this thing’s getting old.” The moment you say, “I’m selling”, you’re thinking like an investor. Now we can step out of that role as the person who’s anxious, who’s working hard every day, and saying, “Hey, let’s have some fun with this thing. Here’s free money”, because you’re going to pay it anyway.

What are some things we could do? You could build a positive charity initiative off the platform of your business.

Pat Flynn: Right. I’m thinking how many schools in Ghana could you build—

Dan Andrews: There you go, if that’s something you’re into.

Pat Flynn: … instead of like giving it to a broker, whoever.

Dan Andrews: 100 percent. The CEO you might say, “Well, that’s a bad business move”, but investor you can say, “Hey, we’re going to lose 35-40 percent on the sale anyway, so how about we take a 20 percent hit so the founder can pursue their passion?” Who knows where that leads?

Pat Flynn: Wow. Mm-hmm.

Dan Andrews: Okay. You could host these awesome retreats for your team. You know where you can go? You can march into your office or you say, “Hey, everybody’s going remote.” Whatever. Do the thing that’s risky for three or six months and see where it leaves you.

One founder I spoke to said, very simply, “You know, I wish I just would have left for a month”, because he was like, “I made that decision for a lifetime. Why on earth wouldn’t I test it out for one month?” He said he got so much perspective in that first month after he exited his business he had worked for a decade on. He’s like, “I didn’t need it to sell anymore, I felt like. I could have gotten all that insight by just stepping away for a month.”

The mediocre CEO idea is simply this, which is very often it’s the case that a business sale will return you three times your annual earnings, so you get three times net profit in your bank account, you pay all those taxes, and you lose the asset. Why not hire a general manager as CEO? Someone who’s ambitious. Maybe they’re not as good as you. Maybe they’re mediocre. Immediately, mediocre CEO steps in and he loses half of your profits every year. Instead of three years, it’ll take you six years to recover those profits, but think about all the advantages you could have there. You could still have the asset after six years. Maybe mediocre CEO gives you enough time to focus on those new projects you thought you would be interested in. Maybe instead you start tinkering around and find new ways to improve the business.

Again, just thought experiments. Maybe for folks just getting started out, you could say, “What if I didn’t think of my business as my baby? What if I thought about it as an asset and I gave myself some latitude to run sort of exciting experiments?” The next steps in our business aren’t always so obvious to us. I’ve noticed for a lot of us that’s when things get rough is when we look down at our next year’s goals or plans and it feels like a lot more of the same. For many of us, we didn’t become entrepreneurs because we wanted to have what feels like a job.

Pat Flynn: Powerful. I really like that, especially the mediocre … When you think about it that way, why not?

Dan Andrews: Here’s the thing, Pat. The reason we sold our business was because our number one guy came to us and quit. We were like, “Oh man. We can’t replace this guy. This is going to be horrible.”

Pat Flynn: Your number one team member?

Dan Andrews: Yeah. He had been there from the beginning. San Diego guy. He was great. It broke our hearts. We just felt like the time it would take to replace him, it was just heartbreaking to us. Ian was going to have to cancel his summer in Mexico. I was going to have to get on the long haul. In an extreme display of naivete, we said, “Hey, here’s a bonus for you to stick around for a few months. We’re going to put the business on the market.”

If I would have done just a small amount of research, I would have realized that if your business is worth over half a million dollars, you’re not going to sell it in a few months. It’s going to take you years to sell your business on average. The reality is that we had hired and fired a handful of people and trained replacements through that whole process. My point here is that hiring someone to run your business is a lot easier, and, in my experience, a lot more fun and satisfying, than selling it.

Pat Flynn: Wow. Okay. Thought experiment number three.

Dan Andrews: The Hidden Upsides. Are there hidden upsides in your business or platform that you might not be acknowledging? One of the reasons that people decide to sell is that they have three or four years of track record in business and they start to feel that they know what’s going to happen. “I know what the next year’s going to look like. It’s going to be more of the same.” I just think this is a fallacy. Even in the most boring businesses, your platform exposes you to so many opportunities.

In this chapter, I tell the story of my friend Brian who’s one of the most successful people I’ve ever met in terms of business and wealth. He has this amazing ability to stay focused and interested and to use his business as a way to have fun, even though fundamentally it’s kind of a boring business. It does the same thing. It distributes SCUBA products.

One day he’s at like a cocktail party and he bumps into a supplier who’s disappointed with his network of stores. They kind of cut a deal, but the guys like, “Look, if you want to distribute my dive watches to your stores in the Philippines, you’re going to have to write me a $25,000 check.” Based on everything Brian had known from years of experience in business, he felt that he would never be able to recover that investment, but for the sake of the replacement and for other opportunities, he was willing to write that check.

What happened is that his purchases of dive computers in the next two years 12X. He exposed himself to, from a wealth perspective, a life-changing opportunity that he couldn’t have predicted based on what he “knew” about his business.

In this chapter, I’m encouraging, or in this thought experiment rather, I’m just encouraging entrepreneurs to … There’s this glamorization of what’s going to happen to you when you have cash and the experience of the exit, like you’re going to all of a sudden be this amazing investor and mentor to people. The reality is that what’s truly special is you, the entrepreneur. You’ve done something unique. The investors, they’re sort of painting up this cash position as this glorious position because they want to get your attention, because they need you. You’re the scarce asset. The strange thing that I found is that time and commodity, or time and cash, while there’s nobody that doesn’t want more, they’re commodities. Your business and the opportunities that it exposes you to, that’s truly unique. Those interactions can be explosive.

I walk up to some networking party, and I’m like just the next guy who has a couple bucks in his bank account, that’s actually a much rarer situation to be than Brian was in, the guy who had 16 stores in the Philippines. Now all of a sudden his interactions can take that next step of, “How can your platform interact with my platform and we can both win?” I think that’s like an ace up the sleeve that every entrepreneur has. Everyone has that. That’s your platform. That’s what you built. It’s easy to start to devalue it after you’ve been around it for year after year. You’re like, “What’s this old thing?”

Pat Flynn: Yeah. The opportunities, it’s hard because you don’t know that they’re there all the time, but … I’m imagining, for example, if I were to sell SPI. SPI comes with content and a certain number of traffic. I have customers and what not. Those things are there, but SPI has given me so many opportunities to meet amazing people who are now able to help me with some of my legacy goals related to education and school. It’s allowed me to travel to places I would have never traveled before. It’s allowed me to become more confident as a communicator. It has allowed all those intangible things that are actually like the really fun things, not that I don’t—

Dan Andrews: 100 percent. I think that everyone that’s followed you has noticed that you weigh those more than most public entrepreneurs, because of the way you’ve driven your brand. You actually take pains, like every product that you launch, you always situate it in, “This is actually bigger for me than the transactional value of this product.” That is the fun stuff.

By the way, the best things in life, sorry to break it to everybody who wants to go out and make a bunch of money, you can’t buy them. You can’t buy respect from people. You can’t buy self-confidence. I don’t want to get in the woods about that stuff. Everybody’s not here to be like a life guru. I don’t know how to live a good life necessarily. I’m just saying that’s up to everyone to decide, but if someone puts a pile of money on your desk, it’s not going to get easier to find the good stuff.

Pat Flynn: Right. The classic examples are the people who win the lottery and then their lives just go to crap because of … Essentially, money just amplifies more of who you are and the kind of person you are. I think deep down those roots have to be there in serving and what not to … Anyway, yeah, you’re right. We can—

Dan Andrews: Here’s an interesting question, Pat. If we were to go back to the first thought experiment, there’s this idea that Jason Cohen from A Smart Bear, founder of WP Engine, has. He calls it the freedom line. That’s the number at which you could shelve financial responsibilities for a lifetime. This is an interesting question because it encapsulates a lot more than just your consumption habits. It encapsulates the level of responsibility you’re taking for your families health, for those around you’s futures, their educations, all those sort of things.

If someone came along and gave you that number for SPI, that number might put you in a legitimate bind. Is there any number that someone could put on your desk that would compel you to walk?

Pat Flynn: No.

Dan Andrews: Yeah.

Pat Flynn: I mean, maybe. People are like, “Really, Pat? If somebody offered you a billion dollars … “ Maybe—

Dan Andrews: We’d have to think about it.

Pat Flynn: Yeah. I’m imagining all that I can do to help even more people with that kind of cash influx, but—

Dan Andrews: Exactly.

Pat Flynn: Even at like … I am so happy with where I’m at and how things are. I’m way beyond the freedom line at this point. A huge influx of cash isn’t going to change my life.

Dan Andrews: Yep.

Pat Flynn: In that ladder you talked about, I’m pretty up high on the ladder I know. I’ve worked definitely hard to get here, but I also can extend the ladder for other people, not just myself too. That plays a role—

Dan Andrews: That’s fascinating.

Pat Flynn: That plays a role as well. As far as for me in my life and cash, it wouldn’t change anything. Life would remain the same. I wouldn’t get a different house. I wouldn’t buy a different car. I wouldn’t get different clothes or—

Dan Andrews: Again, you’re amplifying this idea that this is not linear. The idea that you’re pointing to this number that’s almost … It’s almost a little bit awkward to say that number, but it might very well be the case that that makes all the sense in the world. A lot of people are jumping from $100,000 in the bank to $10 million. That’s the jump that a lot of people indicate in terms of what they value and what would be the next level for them. Again, Pat, when I met you just a handful of years ago, we were all sitting down at day number one.

Pat Flynn: Yeah. I was in survival mode.

Dan Andrews: If anyone thinks this conversation isn’t relevant to them, think again because the journey that we’re on is a long ball journey, and this is where you’re headed. These are the sorts of judgments that you’re making.

Pat Flynn: Yeah. This is so great. I’m so thankful that you are coming here to share this stuff so that we can all be just a … have a little bit more ammunition for what’s coming next, because obviously—

Dan Andrews: Learn from my mistakes, Pat.

Pat Flynn: Okay. We talked about three thought experiments. You got a couple more for us?

Dan Andrews: I do. Two more. Number four is called The Cash Conundrum. This is the idea of what will you do with all of your cash. Since you want to cash out, it might make sense to start to identify the behavior of your cash and the types of investments you intend to make before you spend a couple years investing in an exit process.

One of the things I’ve noticed, Pat, is that cash piles behave so much differently than cash flows. Cash piles are very … They’re vulnerable to the elements. They’re vulnerable to taxes. They’re vulnerable to professional services, your cousin who has a startup idea, medical emergencies, anything that comes up. That cash pile’s just sitting right there waiting to contribute to whatever needs from it.

Pat Flynn: Right, right.

Dan Andrews: On the other hand, you have these cash flows that are dynamic. You can sort of put ideas into them or you can evolve them to change to market conditions, and they can continue to spin off capital in your direction on a month to month basis. Just like not all business models are created equal, would you rather make $3500 a month selling ebooks or $15,000 a month selling done for you podcasting services? For me, I would choose the ebook route and then build that business up and have stuff on the back end of the ebook. It makes so much sense to me. For everybody, their values are going to be different. Their skills are going to be different.

There was this great book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, which I know you’re familiar with. In the book, there’s this definition of financial freedom, which is when your income from passive investments is higher than your monthly expenses. I know a lot of us think about our online businesses this way. You might have a really good lifestyle. You’re working from 8:00 to 2:00 pm. You’re making, let’s say, $6000 a month, and you’re expenses are $4000. You’re putting $2000 in the bank and you’ve got all these opportunities, all these things we’ve talked about throughout the episode, opportunities you can do things with that asset.

If you were to put that $6000 a month business on the web and sell it for an industry-standard rate, you would get $216,000 in your bank account, which would then get taxed, you’d have to pay brokerage fees, and you’d have to sit it in that bank account. By the way, that’s if your business is established and has many years of track record. We’re not talking about something you cooked up in the last couple years on Amazon.

Pat Flynn: Right.

Dan Andrews: Now all of a sudden you’re staring at the $216,000 that’s been eroded by all the maybe financial, all the things we talked about, and you’re like, “Oh man. I gotta get back to work.” You start to look back at the $6000 that was coming in every month and it was dynamic and flexible and other people could work on it. You’re like, “Man, that looked pretty good. That looked pretty good in retrospect.”

Again, something to think about. How will you invest your cash? Do you have a specific plan for your cash pile? Because otherwise, they’re very vulnerable, and investing is a very different skill set than the one that most of us have been investing in over the past many years, which is entrepreneurship.

Pat Flynn: Mm-hmm. Yeah. That’s huge. That begins to get into, wow, like how do I know which one’s the right one?

Dan Andrews: Look, I definitely didn’t write a book full of answers, Pat, for the clear reason that I have no idea what I’m talking about. I’m at just simply asking the questions.

Pat Flynn: Yeah, which are important questions to ask.

Dan Andrews: Yeah. I think they’re tough to come up with the answers. It’s no wonder so many people get this stuff wrong, because it’s not like you have a lot of chances to practice. This is a one-off thing.

Pat Flynn: Now is this particular thought experiment something that is on the scale of pretty painful for you, or is this more just in your research you’ve determined that this is something to worry about? Are you in a cash conundrum?

Dan Andrews: Yeah. I would say that because it’s not all that useful to me. I don’t know what to do with it. I don’t know what to do with all this … I don’t have the skill set for it. Yeah, I could buy mutual funds or I could buy, I guess, real estate or something, but I can’t really make like … If I make high-risk internet business investments, I could easily flush it down the toilet.

I look back to my business. Remember I was worried about that inventory in California? I was like, “So much of my cash is tied up in inventory.” Pat, it returned me 20 percent year over year. I can’t find an investment like that anywhere. The very thing I was worried about, that I feared, that investment that I had in that inventory turns out to be a no brainer in retrospect. Just another way to think about it. It’s one of those things where you look at the other side of the fence and the grass looks greener.

Pat Flynn: Of course. Thank you again for being vulnerable and honest here with us. I think it’s so important because—

Dan Andrews: Sure. I haven’t even got to the most vulnerable part yet, Pat. You’re—

Pat Flynn: I was going to say, is this thought experiment number … You saved the best for last?

Dan Andrews: I saved the best for last. This is the moment when it’s like flip off the episode, cool yourself down, because it’s about to get real.

Pat Flynn: Okay.

Dan Andrews: Have you ever heard of this thing called the Peter Principle?

Pat Flynn: No.

Dan Andrews: The Peter Principle is this idea that in any organization, people get promoted to the level of their own incompetence, which explains pretty clearly why your last boss, you didn’t like him very much. For entrepreneurs, think of it like this. If you’re good at running a six figure business, you’re very likely to proceed to the next level and run a seven figure business and so on, until at some point you get to a level at which you’ve sort of topped out in terms of your ability to be successful. This very often happens in corporate America.

What I’ve noticed in the entrepreneurial space … I’ll just tell my particular story. I knew we were at like $3.5 million in revenue, and I knew the next meaningful level for our business was to get to $10 million. I would look at the to-dos on my day to day, and I’d be like, “Man, I don’t really want to go to another trade show. I don’t really want to like manage this team.” It’s just like all the grumbling that I think a lot of us can relate to. I was bored. I was sick and tired of it. I felt like I knew what was around every corner.

This was me being incompetent. This was me being at the top level of my experience. I didn’t know what to do, so I defaulted back on all the stuff I had done before, and I was bored by it. Someone who had some experience running a $10 million business or $100 million business would come to me and say, “Are you crazy?! You think you’re going to get to there by how you got to here? You can’t just keep going to trade shows, man. You’re going to get the same results.”

I didn’t have an open mind to that stuff. I thought I knew everything about my business. I thought I was the expert. That arrogance that I had was, I think, a manifestation of this Peter Principle, of like my own impotence rationalizing itself as, strangely enough, expertise and boredom.

Pat Flynn: That’s so interesting. What, in retrospect, did you wish you did instead?

Dan Andrews: I wish I would have fun a lot of these mind-opening thought experiences we talked about earlier, like I would have loved to have brought in new leadership into the business and worked with them and cultivated a culture instead of maybe grinding it out day to day. One of the pieces of advice I heard Seth Godin give a woman who had this same problem … She’s like, “Hey, I have a $10 million business. I want to get to $100 million.” He said, “Well, hire somebody to run your business and go work for a $100 million business. See how it operates.” Apparently, as the story goes, this worked out for her and she was able to achieve her goals.

What I love about this is I believe entrepreneurship is a know-how. It’s like riding a bike. It’s not something you can read about and then do. Of course, reading about it can inspire you to do things, but it’s an experience. It’s like you know how to be an entrepreneur. The way you learn it is by doing it. I love this piece of advice he gave because it’s like, “Hey, go actually do work that expands what you’re capable of. Stretch yourself.”

My last boss, my business mentor, did this for me. I remember he put me in charge of his business, and he used to stack papers so high on my desk. I would say, “This is impossible.” He would look at me and say, “We got to get it done”, but I learned. I learned through that experience. I think when I was in my own business, Pat, I wasn’t willing to push myself that hard. It is what it is. That’s a shame.

Pat Flynn: Here’s the other question. Why weren’t you satisfied at three? Why did you feel like you had to go to ten?

Dan Andrews: It wasn’t … That’s a great question too. I didn’t have clarity on it. That’s all. I didn’t have this dialogue. One of the reasons we thought to get to 10 is that’s when businesses become an acquisition target for institutional money. There’s a backdrop to all this, which is businesses between half a million dollars and about $10 million, and that $10 million is going down as technology changes, but they’re pretty hard to sell, relatively speaking, because you got to have cash investors. Whereas when you get to a larger scale, all of a sudden brands are interested in you, institutional investors, private equity firms, things like that.

Pat Flynn: Got it.

Dan Andrews: Getting to ten was a chance for us to have a truly life-changing amount of wealth on our hands, so that’s one goal, but it’s not the only one. We enjoyed running our business. We had cool products. We had a cool, quirky team, sort of very much in our image, not the average people working at a California ecommerce business. I don’t know, Pat. I don’t know exactly.

Pat Flynn: The reason I’m asking this question is because we, and I don’t know if this is just human nature, but we … Everybody wants to grow. Nobody has … I’ve never spoken to anybody who has said, “Yeah. I make this much, and that’s cool, and I continue to stay there.” We all want more. I don’t know if maybe that’s the problem, or maybe … I don’t know. I’m just kind of thinking out loud here.

Dan Andrews: I’ve met people that … It’s interesting.

Pat Flynn: Have you see one before?

Dan Andrews: I’ve met people that don’t want more. Yeah. I’ve met people in the wild who don’t want more. They’re a rare animal. A lot of times, people will nominally want more, but they’re not willing to actually sacrifice what it would take to get more.

Pat Flynn: 100 percent agree, yes.

Dan Andrews: This brings me to a few other dirty secrets that I wrote down.

Pat Flynn: Okay.

Dan Andrews: One of the things, Pat, when I first met you, me and you were total hustlers, man. You were a hustler, man. You’d come in with the eye of the tiger. You were working hard.

Pat Flynn: I was.

Dan Andrews: So was I. We all related to each other in that. We were also in our 20s and had relatively few responsibilities. Now I know your level of responsibility has changed dramatically. Now you got a family. You got interests. All this stuff that when we were in our—

Pat Flynn: I have to like, vacuum the house now.

Dan Andrews: Exactly. When we were in our 20s, we were like, “I got to do this thing.” What happens to entrepreneurs is both they look back with rose-colored glasses at this time period in building their business and they forget how much energy it took them. I worked two shifts a day for four years. I can’t do that now. I got too many other responsibilities. I’m not motivated in the same way I was.

Part of that … The reason we make that miscalculation is sometimes we can conflate too much the success of our business with how good of an entrepreneur we are. This is going to be different in every case, and I don’t know … I’m not the person to judge this, but we’ve all seen online people that have sold their businesses with big future plans, and then pretty much nothing happens. That was their one shot because they had the energy, they had the dedication, they had the vision or the timing or the luck. Who knows?

I remember talking to DHH, the founder of Basecamp about this. He’s like, “I don’t want to be in my 20s again. I don’t want to work like that again. Who knows if I would ever hit it again in the way … “ I don’t know how to answer that question, but it’s certainly something to consider about. Are you over conflating that success that you hit on? If I look back at my track record alone, I’ve probably launched like, I don’t know, 50-60 projects with the hopes of them being a business. Right now, I have one. I have one business. Exactly one out of 60. You’re signing yourself up to go through that process again if you haven’t hit that freedom line where you’re either in a resort in Mexico or you’re a professional philanthropist.

Pat Flynn: Man, this has been eye-opening conversation, especially helpful for me as I continue to obviously grow the business I have, but also I like starting new things. I like experimenting. All these are questions I have never really considered in that way. I hope that all of you listening are encouraged by this, not deflated by it. I think we should all just know this is a thing. Dan’s opened it up, and I’d love to continue this discussion in the comments section on the blog. I’ll give you the show notes link in just a moment, but Dan, thank you so much for coming on here. Any final piece of advice for everybody listening, now that you’ve known what they’ve listened to? What should they do from here? You gave us these thought experiments, which are fantastic, but what’s one thing we could do to better position ourselves for a happier future?

Dan Andrews: Absolutely. Leave that part of your space … These thought experiments are designed to open up that investor side of your brain, which is yeah, you’re the founder, yeah, you’re passionate, yeah, you’re growing your baby, but on the other hand, it’s also an asset in your portfolio. Leave space in your week to think about your asset that way. It can free you up to do interesting things on the entrepreneurial side as well. That’s number one.

Number two is a lot of people start to think about selling when they’re getting bored, they’re getting anxious, or bad things are happening. What I encourage everyone to do is to, if you do decide to sell or start to explore it, dive into it with the same enthusiasm that you had when you started your first business. It can be an exciting process. If you don’t, every time, Pat, that I didn’t have my eye on the ball for this process because I was disengaged, I’ve paid for it on the back end. That’s just life. Had I been able to go back, I wish I just would have had a lot more fun with it and got more engaged with the process. I think I would have been more satisfied in the long run. Honestly, Pat, writing this book has been a really cathartic experience.

Pat Flynn: Thank you for writing it. Where can people go and grab it

Dan Andrews: Yeah. You can just Google Before the Exit by Dan Andrews. On my website, I have a book resources page, so it’s TropicalMBA.com/bookresources. You don’t even really need to read the book if you get the gist of what I’m saying, but you can listen to interviews of the woman who bought our business, our initial thoughts after selling it. We have a bunch of audios that you can listen to. If you’re deep in this process, I highly recommend you check out all these audios we have up there for free. Just go check it out.

Pat Flynn: Cool, man. We’ll have all the links on the show notes page. Dan, thank you so much for coming on and opening up for us and allowing us to consider these really important questions for our future. I can’t thank you enough.

Dan Andrews: My pleasure, Pat. By the way, a 100 percent open invite anytime you’re willing to come by the Tropical MBA podcast. Please do so.
