Why You Should Stop Trying to Sell Yourself
Sales Myth: You Have to Sell Yourself Most of us, at one time or another in our careers, have heard some trainer or manager exclaim, “You have to sell yourself.” “If you want to get that job, son, you have to sell yourself.” “The real key to sales is your ability to sell yourself.” “If you want others to like you, you’ll have to sell yourself.” The Sell Yourself Cliche This philosophy is prevalent in business culture. A while back, I was at an Ivy League University for a speech by a successful businessman to a group of MBA students from the top business schools in the world. The speaker was so well respected that when he walked into the room there was a hush. The audience members were on the edge of their seats in anticipation. And what was the message? What was the secret of success that this revered businessman offered? “Never forget how important it is in business to first sell yourself.” The entire audience nodded in unison. For this wise man and many others, the phrase sell yourself  has become an easy-to-use cliche´. It just rolls off the tongue. Like the audience at the speech I attended, most people will nod their heads in agreement to the statement as if some prophet on a hill had just read it from stone tablets. People Buy You for Their Reasons, Not Yours Sales expert and bestselling author Jeffrey Gitomer teaches a simple philosophy, “People love to buy but they hate to be sold.” In other words, most people prefer to buy on their terms. They do not want or appreciate a hard pitch or a features dump. They buy for their reasons not yours. Yet daily salespeople across the globe, on the phone, video calls, email, social media, and in person, sell to their customers by dumping data, pushing their position, or simply trying to talk their way into a sale. They sell themselves to anyone else they can get to stand still for more than five minutes. But it does not work, because people like to buy, they don’t like to be sold. When You Try to Sell Yourself You Push People Away The harder you try to sell yourself to others, the more you push them away. A conversation where the other person tells you all about themselves, their accomplishments, and how great they are is a turnoff. It is a features dump. Think about it, the most unlikeable human in the world is the person standing in front of you talking about themself. You don’t walk away from that conversation thinking how much you would like to spend more time with them. Instead you think, “What a jerk,” or “How boring,” or “Wow,  that guy is full of himself.” We Love to Talk About Our Favorite Person Still, we do love the opportunity to sell ourselves. Most of us, if given the opportunity, will talk for hours about our favorite person, oblivious to the negative impact it has on how we are viewed by others. When pressed, experts who are quick to tell you to sell yourself, are unable to explain exactly how to do it. Sure, they will offer tips, but it's mostly hyperbole. Here is the brutal truth: You cannot sell yourself to others; you have to get others to buy you on their terms. You're Talking, They Aren't Buying Even if you are preceded by a great reputation and others are anticipating meeting you, your attempts to sell yourself can backfire. I learned this lesson at a speech I gave to a large dinner group. One of the audience members was such a big fan of one of my books, that he lobbied the meeting organizer to be seated right next to me. During dinner he asked me questions, and I talked and talked and talked—about me. A few days after the speech, I called the meeting organizer to follow up and offer my thanks. I thanked him for seating Daniel next to me and asked him if Daniel had had a good time. He hesitated for a moment and finally said, “I’m telling you this because I like you; but Daniel did not come away with a very good opinion of you.” It was like being punched in the gut!

INSANE CASE STUDY: Publishing For 365 Days Straight
Here’s a cool case study of a band that performed a concert every single day for a year. Listen to this episode to find out what happened to them and how this relates to you. Hit me up on IG! @russellbrunson Text Me! 208-231-3797 Join my newsletter at marketingsecrets.com ---Transcript--- Hey everybody, this is Russell Brunson, welcome back to the Marketing Seekers Podcast. I want to share with you guys what I consider an insane case study that isn't necessarily from the business world, but it's following a business principle that I talked about all the time, and it happened for a little band. So with that said I'm going to cue up the theme song. When I come back I'm going to share with you guys the story about Jim and Sam. All right, so as you guys know I've been talking about publishing for years about the power of it and why we should be publishing daily, and I remember at one of our Two Comma Club X events I made a statement, I said to everyone in the audience, "If you will publish every single day for a year by the end of the year I am convinced you'll be financially free," and I think a lot of people looked at me and said, "Cool." Some people said there's no way, and very few people actually did it. People have and those people insanely enough are having a lot of success right now. So anyways, I still stand by that. You pick where you're going to publish at and do it every single day for a year you should be successful because a couple things are going to happen. Number one, it will give you a chance and give you time to find your voice. And number two, it gives your audience enough time to come and find you, right? And so, that's kind of the reason behind it. And so, what's cool is this morning Brandon Fisher who's one of the guys here on my team that does our all our video stuff he sent me this trailer, and I haven't watched the documentary of it. I watched the trailer this morning, and it was amazing, so I highly recommend it. If you go to wearejimandsam.com you can go and watch the trailer for this documentary called After So Many Days. And so, I didn't know why he sent it to me, so I clicked play, and in this minute and 50 trailer for this documentary it tells a story about a couple, newlyweds named Jim and Sam, who've been trying for a decade to hit it with music. They were playing shows, they were practicing, all sorts of stuff, and for 10 years had no success, and they decided they needed to do something crazy, like we need to figure out a way to make this thing successful. And so, they decided that they were going to do a show every single day for 365 days. Right? And again, I haven't seen the documentary yet. I am so excited to go and watch it, but just from the trailer you see what happens is they go out there and they start doing a show, and some of the shows are next to these guys cutting down trees because they're the only person that will listen to them. Some of them are in these little bars, some of them are just wherever they can find a place to perform a show in front of humans, right? And they start doing this, and they start doing this, and by the end of the trailer they're performing in front of these audiences of tens of thousands of people. And there's this quote at the end of the trailer that was so powerful. In fact, I wrote it down. I just wanted to share it with you. At the end of the trailer he says, "So here we go, making something happen every single day," and then, boom, they start on this journey. Anyway, I wanted to share it with you because, man, so many of us have this dream. We have our art, right? For Jim and Sam it's their band. For you it could be an offer, a product, a coaching program, a book, a course, a CD, a physical product, a service you do. It could be whatever, right? We have this vision, we have our dream, and we go out there and we try to put it out there. But the magic of this, and again, I cannot wait to watch the documentary. It'll probably end up having 10 more episodes. I'm going to be geeking out about this, but the concept of like, all right, if we're going to be successful it's not just going out there and dabbling, or going out there I'm going to read a book, I'm going to go try to whatever. It's like, here we go, making something happen every single day. What are you doing every single day to make your dream come true, right? What is it? Right? And for most of us if we're selling stuff online is publishing. I know Nathan Barry who was the founder of ConvertKit, a great software program, he said the same thing. He's like, "I'm going to write a blog post every single day for a year," and he sat down and he started doing it, and first it was really, really hard, right? But then, he got into the habit of this every day I'm going to sit down I'm going to write 1,000 words, write 1,000 words. Every morning do 1,000 words, 1,000 words, and by the time a year had come up his company had blown up, so many good things happened from it. And so, I think for all of us, man, they just serve as such a good reminder. How do we publish something every single day, right? And so, this is the rallying call, okay? As you guys are going to commit to this and say, "Okay, I'm going to do this." The rallying call is this, "So here we go, making something happen every single day." So what is that for you? What is that level? What's the thing that if you do every single day it's going to change everything for you? You got to figure out exactly what that is and then focus on it and do it consistently every single day for a year. If you do that a couple things happen. Number one, you will find your voice, okay? I guarantee that by the end of performing a show every single day for a year, what happened? They got better. They figure out if people like it, or if people didn't like it. They mastered their craft, right? And the second thing is they're going out and doing this over, and over, and over again. The consistency gave their audience a chance to find them. I talk about it in the Traffic Seekers book as well. I shared one of Nathan Barry's thousand blog posts, or 100 blog, whatever, 365 blog posts he did that year. One of them is called You Have to Endure Long Enough to Get Noticed. And he talked about it, he said you know what's interesting? You think about TV shows, or movies, or documentaries, like how many TV shows did you find out about season four or five, right? So the problem is there's so much content being created all the time that the market, the world, waits to see what's good enough that's going to rise to the top, right? And so, it's testing you. I think for all of us it's like, okay, the universe, God, the market, whoever is testing you to say, do you really want this? How bad do you want it? How bad do you care about your message? Do you care about it enough to blog once a week about it? Do you care about if you're going to blog every day about it? Do you care about that every single day you're going to make something happen? Because if you do, if you are, then you get rewarded. Okay? There's a reason now that I'm still having so much success in my business, right? Despite the ups, and the downs, and all the things I have been doing this now for 18 years. 18 years I've been beating this drum over, and over, and over again. I beat this drum when nobody was listening. I beat this drum when people were angry. I beat this drum when clients were leaving me. I beat this drum and I keep doing it, and doing it, and doing it because I believed in it so much, because I cared about it so much, because I knew the impact it could and would have if I just kept doing it, and kept doing it, and kept doing it. And now, 18 years later, and I'm still learning, I'm still becoming better, I still make tons of stupid mistakes, right? But 18 years later I've found my voice, right? And my audience is finding me, and it'll continue to hopefully continue to grow and keep evolving, but that's def…

Michael Zuber on When to Buy Turnkey vs When to Use The BRRRR Strategy
In this week's nugget of weekend wisdom, Michael Zuber weighs in on when to employ different acquisition strategies. --- Transcript Emil: Hey everyone welcome back for another episode of The Remote Real Estate Investor. This is one of our weekend wisdom episode. So hope this catches you on an amazing weekend. So in this week's episode is somebody you guys are probably familiar with. If you've been following the show for a while, we have Michael Zuber back on who is the author of one of my favorite real estate investing books called one rental at a time, he also has a YouTube channel by the same name, definitely recommend checking out both of those. If you want to check out if you missed Michael's previous episodes, he was on episode 11 and 37. So go check those out. He's a regular on the show, and we wanted to bring him on for a quick weekend wisdom. So hope you guys enjoy this one. Theme song: Emil: You mentioned doing BRRRR during 2010. Really before it was even BRRRR. I know you've also mentioned you know, if you're a busy professional, like you don't want to tie up a bunch of capital like buying a turnkey can be smarter because you're not having to keep putting a ton of money in. I'm curious if you have, Are there times in the market cycle that you prefer one or the other? Or how do you decide right now I'm going to be I'm going to follow the birth strategy versus right now I think I'm just going to use less capital go turnkey. Michael Zuber: So for me personally, or are we talking about your audience? Because we're really different people, right? Your audience is busy professionals. That's probably what you're asking about. Emil: Yeah, but I'm curious. Just even from your story, right, you were a busy professional. And at some point, you kind of made the transition. So maybe it was just being comfortable… Michael Zuber: When you think about, so buy and hold rental properties is one rental at a time, right, you can get at one rental at a time, basically two different ways. One way is you can buy turnkey properties, which I consider clean, zero make ready, right? Means you buy it, you either have a tenant or you you stick a tenant in no additional dollars out of pocket, just so we can clean up the understanding. I believe in the beginning, when you have yet to build a team when you have yet to really understand the network and all the nuances in any market the right thing to do the least risky thing to do, the fastest thing to do is to do what today is called a turnkey property. That said, as you gain experience, as you gain units, you as an more experienced investor will have the option to make choices, there will be market cycles, I've been doing this 20 years, and there's been two or three portions of this cycle where bur is just more profitable. The best example was 2010 to 2014 in that market, because it was generally bouncing off the bottom, you still could get yesterday's prices and tomorrow's values. So if you bought a dump, you got yesterday's prices, but once you polish it up, you can get tomorrow's value because there wasn't a great supply of them. That was such a special time. BRRRR was a huge benefit for me because I recycled 95% of my capital or more every time so I could just keep on buying as fast as I found deals in my pile of money never left and it never had to grow. So that was a pretty special time. Lots of people, Brandon Turner included were very successful in that time. And he's built a great career off of it David green as well I believe but most markets are not 2010 to 2014 where you really couldn't do anything wrong. Right? In between 2010 and 2014. If your project was too much longer than it should have been you won if your project cost you an extra 10 grand you won I mean it was it was a special time and for people to not nuance The difference is just not fair. That was so special. It may never be that easy. Again, that said you can always find what I now call slumlord properties today you have to find really slumlord properties but they're out there right? These are ones that can't be financed, no bank would loan on them you have to pay cash very few buyers have appetites for properties that smell and have bugs and just are disgusting but if you can negotiate a fair price you can go in get it because it doesn't really cost that much more to fix a disgusting versus a semi disgusting because it's still paint still new floor still new kitchen still new bath, still some floor it's all the same stuff. So you can still go in you just got to buy them right I would tell you in a market that is so hot for owner occupant that doing bird today is a lot harder than 2010 to 14. Not impossible. I'm going to suspect the market will get better for Burr in the future when it's more even keeled today, at least in the markets. I'm in owners are dominated the market 90% of the offers are coming from owners only 10% from investors. I have never seen it that way. It is so hard to be an investor today because there's no inventory and everything that clean is getting bid up by FHA buyers, which put less down and have lower interest rates. So I can't compete. I put in 100 offers or so this year and haven't gotten any of them. Emil: Yeah, that's kind of what I was getting to that answers it perfectly. It's it's kind of like a blend of experience having the right team knowing how much all those things are actually going to cost you which only comes with experience and then partly timing. Michael Zuber: Yeah, the one thing I would really close with is I would never tell someone to make BRRRR their first investment Too risky, too many ups and downs. It's just too hard. You don't even know if you want to be a landlord yet. And now you're going to take on working with general contractors without knowing the team, the risk profile of your first rental property being a BRRRR project. Not great. Emil: Yep. Michael Zuber: Your chances of success are not great, Emil: Especially as a remote investor, which is our audience. Michael: Yeah, not great. Time man, time. The thing that people don't realize is a busy tech professional. It's usually not money. That's our constraint. It's time, time, right? We time use it more efficiently. I tell people you can learn your market 20 minutes a day, people fight me on now like frickin ages. Do it stop going 1000 directions in 1000 different things. Just focus, tighten up your focus. Look at it 20 minutes a day and move on. Right? You've got life you got to raise a family. You got all this 60, now you're working at home you're working 24 seven. And you know, use Roofstock Learn to market pick, look, get after it and just move on. Emil: Love it. Awesome. Hope you guys enjoyed that episode. And thanks again to Michael Zuber for coming on. We'll have him on on a future episode as well. Alright guys, enjoy your weekend. Happy investing.
