In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have a fantastic guest, Timothy who shares wisdom, insights, and knowledge about how to make a real difference, the importance of giving back, the role of education these days, stock market strategy, and the danger of earning a lot of money too quickly!

Timothy Sykes is an entrepreneur, a world traveler, philanthropist, trading teacher and influencer, millionaire trader, and co-founder of Karmagawa, a charitable organization dedicated to saving the environment, endangered species, and more.

 Through the Timothy Sykes Foundation, 35 schools have been built or are in development, in over a dozen countries around the world. He’s been featured in a variety of different media outlets, including CNN, CNBC, Fox Business, Fox TV, Forbes, Larry King, Men’s Journal, and Steve Harvey.

Before Tim got into the education world, he failed in growing his hedge fund not realizing that he didn’t have the rules and risk management. He was always drunk and lost all his industry credibility. Until he found clarity and shifted his life. The opportunity came to him and started teaching people online, helping and showing everyone his trades.

But Tim doesn’t teach people to be rich but teaches that success is in their failure. He makes video lessons on every single loss and mistake, as well as wins in trading. Shares photos, videos, knowledge, and posts that really hit people. Tim became a number one trader that earns a lot of money, as well as a mentor that he wished he had in the beginning.  

However, he realized that it’s not only making the biggest bank account but taking care of his passion, helping his family and himself, and helping the world, make an impact, and make a real difference. His goal is to build thousands of schools. Now, have built 70 schools so far, trying to help one emergency at a time, and help communities that are involved.

On the other side, despite this pandemic, Tim believes that this is the best time to educate yourself. It is by learning digitally and remotely. Take advantage and learn things to adapt to the new normal, and changes to do better. It’s always hard and messy in the beginning, but through sharing education in the world, nothing is impossible.

In addition, every single person must have a goal to achieve. and it's okay to change goals and adopt new things. Challenge yourself, and do what fulfills you and push yourself. Charity becomes his new challenge after achieving all the material things he has ever wanted. This year, Tim donated all his trading profits to charity.

But then warns that if you’re trying to get as much money as you can with nothing else, you might succeed but you will not be happy. It is using our humanity to our advantage rather than trying to do everything on your own and keeping other people out of your life. It is education, having heart, and really embracing and not ignoring our community!

Should I Write A Book?... (Huge Announcement)
One of the questions I get a lot is “should I write a book?”. I’m going to tell you what I think, and why I’m starting book #4. Hit me up on IG! @russellbrunson Text Me! 208-231-3797 Join my newsletter at marketingsecrets.com ---Transcript--- What’s up, everybody. This is Russell Brunson. Welcome back to Marketing Secrets Podcast. That beep means I need to put my seatbelt on before I drive away. And I am here today to answer the question, should you write a book? Today, something that has been on my mind is this question I get asked a lot, which is, should I write a book? And it's funny because, as you guys know, I've written three books. One of them was a New York Times bestseller. Woohoo! So that's pretty exciting. But it's funny because I never was a writer. I didn't want to be a writer. I hated writing in school. Even to this day, someone asked me, two days ago actually, he said, "Russell, do you like writing books?" I was like, "No, writing books is horrible. It is the most painful process of all time." And so, no, I do not like to write books, yet I've written three, and I'm probably going to write more. And people ask, "Well, why would you do that?" I'm like, "Well, it's the most painful process part of all the things I do." It's the hardest thing to do, but at the same time, it's also the thing that live the longest, that lives beyond yourself, that lasts, especially if you write a book that matters. I know there's a lot of people who teach how to write a book really fast, and I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about should you write a book that's going to be your legacy, the thing that people are going to remember you by? And a couple of things, I remember when I first got started, it was about 18 years ago, I remember going to events where people were selling the dream of, "You need to write a book. It's going to give you credibility," all these things. And so I put it in my head, I want to write a book. But I didn't for almost 10 years. But I remember when I started, I was like, "I'm going to write a book. It's going to be called Dot Com Secrets, because I don't know why. I just love that name." A lot of people told me they hated it. In fact, Jeff, Walker was like, "It's the worst name of a book ever." But whatever, I still like it. So anyway, I decided I'm going to write a book. I remember there was something cool about just in my head knowing that I'm writing a book. Even though I hadn't actually written anything, I just was like, "Okay, well, what's the outline? What's the table of contents? What's it going to look like? What should I write?" I started brainstorming it. But there was something when I flipped the switch to I was writing a book that just became exciting. I don't know. And I remember after I got done and I was like, "This is so hard. I'll never write a book again." But then when I decided I'm going to read Expert Secrets, there was something magical. I don't know. Maybe it's the romance of being an author and writing, and I don't know all that stuff, but there was something magical where I was like, "I'm writing again," and I got in that fun stage. And the same thing with Traffic Secrets, the romance. And I remember after each book, I was like, "I'll never write a book again. I'll never write a book again." But about the time that I got done the Expert Secrets book, I was hanging out with Brendan Bouchard. He's written, I don't know, a ton of books. And I remember he told me, he's like, "No, you're an author." He's like, "You just write a book every two years. That's just how it works. For the rest of your life, you should do that." And I was like, "Huh, interesting." And it took me a while, I'm not going to lie. Almost until I decided to do Traffic Secrets. After that, I was like, "All right, I'm going to do that. That's going to be a thing where I'm going to read a book every two years for the rest of my life." And so when Traffic Secrets got to the end, I was burned out because it was a brutal one. Plus, as some of you know, after finishing Traffic Secrets, I went back and I rewrote Dotcom Secrets and I rewrote Expert Secrets. So that was a season of too many words, hundreds of thousands of words. And I was just like, "I don't know if I can keep doing it." It was hard. So I haven't written anything in, it's been over a year. Holy cow. Weird. Yeah, because basically 2020 happened. We blinked and 2020 happened, and now we're back right now it's February of 2021, and I haven't written anything. So it's been over a year. It was just crazy. Anyway, I tell you this because I knew my next book what I want it to be, and I've told you guys on this podcast it's called Bootstrap. This is going to be the ClickFunnels story. And I'm excited. The problem is I also know, to write that book, it's going to be big and overwhelming and there's a lot that goes into it. And while I've started the process of it, I just know it's probably a two to three year project, if I'm honest with myself, because I have to learn how to write it a different style. It's not a how to book. It's like a storybook. And I want to sync it to The Hero With A Thousand Faces and all these story arcs. I interview 1000 people because I want to get everybody's perspective. I don't want to tell the story from my perspective. I want to tell it from everybody's perspective. And so that's one that's big. Plus, I don't have an ending to the story yet. What's the ending of the story? "And then we were happy." No, it's got to be awesome. "And then we went public," or, "Then we whatever," something cool. So I'm still waiting for the ending of the story. So it was hard to write the beginning if you don't know the ending and I'm hoping the book's not going to be a tragedy. I don't think it will be, but you never know. I don't know. I don't have a full picture, so I can't write that one yet. Although, I do know that is my legacy project of like telling the ClickFunnels story and how we did it all kind of stuff. So I sit back and I know that I have a lot of friends that have written personal development books. I've never wanted to do a personal development book, but there's something that, man, for almost probably nine or 10 months now it's been in my thoughts and I keep thinking about it, keep thinking about it, keep thinking about it. And yesterday I was like, "What if I just wrote that book first?" And then I was like, "Huh? It'd be a lot easier to write. I could get it done. We could launch it next year. It could be out in the world." But is it worth writing? I don't want to write a book just to write a book. A lot of people just write a book because, "Oh, I need a book." I want to write a book that's going to change people. That 500 years now people will reference it. That's the kind of book I want to write. So it's just like, can I make this something that's amazing, that's different, that's unique, that's not the same conversation, but it's a different conversation that'll inspire and help people for a long time? And so that's been the questions going through my head. And recently I figured out the title of it, and then I bought the domain, which was not cheap. So I bought the domain for it. And then it was, "Okay, this could be a thing." So yesterday I reached out to somebody who I know who actually designed the very first Dot Com Secrets book covers. He's name is Rob Secades. And I was like, "Rob, I'm thinking about writing a book. Do you want to design the cover for me?" And he got all excited. I got all excited. I'm like, "Ah!" So now he's designing the cover of the book. And now officially, as soon as that conversation ended, in my head, I was like, "I'm writing a book. I haven't even told my wife about it yet." Gosh, she's going to freak out. I almost want to not tell her and then just be like, "Hey, it's done," when it's done, because she knows the pain that I go through to write a book. But that got me excited, and then I emailed our p…

How a Dentist Built a 7-Figure Online Business, with Dr. Galen Detrik…
I know there are a lot of you out there who are professionals in some form or another… You’re a doctor, a dentist, a lawyer, an engineer, and maybe an accountant, and if you’re listening to this podcast, there’s a very good chance that you’ve thought about starting an online business before… But there’s been confusion, or doubt that’s held you back. . After all, how could a dentist build an online business? Well today you’re going to meet my friend Dr. Galen Detrik who’s done exactly that. He and his wife Davina realized early on during their dental career, that there had to be a better way. They were overworked, stressed-out, and drowning in medical school debt just a handful of years into their career. So they decided to make a change, and they built an online course. Today, they make millions of dollars per year… Not only do they make millions from course sales, but the fact that they made a course, also positioned them as the recognized authority figures in their dental niche, which allowed them to substantially increase their prices, and dramatically reduce the number of patients they see. So yes, it is absolutely possible to turn any business into an online business, and today you’re going to hear exactly how Galen and Davina did it.

How to Uncover the Decision Maker and Qualify the Buying Process
In this episode of The Sell or Die Podcast, we’re talking about uncovering the decision maker when it comes to closing a sale. We’ve all been there. You’re getting closer and closer to making the deal happen, and you think you’re talking to the person who is going to make that decision. And just when you think you have it, they tell you they need to run it up the chain. It’s super frustrating! What we want to tell you today is that when you ask the right questions, you can uncover who the decision maker is and sell to them much sooner in the buying process. Points we’ll go over include: * Asking the right questions * Getting all the decision makers in one place * Beginning with the outcome in mind Die hards, we want you to take personal responsibility for your sales. If you get close to a sale and you suddenly realize you’re not talking to the decision maker, don’t blame the customer. YOU didn’t find out who the decision maker really was. It’s on you to take ownership and learn from your mistakes so you can do better in the future. To learn more about uncovering the decision maker in the sales process, be sure to listen to episode 539 of The Sell or Die Podcast.
