Business Coach | Ask Clay & Z Anything

Audio Transcription

Broadcasting live from the center of the universe. It’s business school without the bs featuring optometrist turned business coach and entrepreneur, dr. Robert, zoellner ussba entrepreneur of the year clay clark. It is the pop time show that you’re pooping steps to make joe and sophie is hot and I still see the sea and the sea that was teaching mrs. Fields trucks like to know more bow wow, that’s some hot sauce. Do you know? Why do you know why we have a new radio show intro my man I mean i, do do you know z I think I do we are now being broadcasted, live in portland, oregon, teleport, listening right now and you’re in you’re in portland and you’re, if you’re, currently finding yourself where you you live in portland and you are struggling to get zoning approval to build something to grow your business to build a structure. Yes, i, get it the average of time it takes to pull a permit in portland is significantly longer than that of tulsa. If you find yourself stuck behind the world’s largest all nude bicycle ride, now I get it cuz I’ve been in portland and I just want to tell you that this is a great thing for you to do, while you’re waiting for a permit, while you’re stuck in traffic behind the nude bicycle race in nz, go to tulsa and in portland we do whale watching, absolutely and and I’m glad we blaze the trail, portland trail, blazers, basketball team, if you are i, got it, and so today we were talking about in your mind best business coach practices, proven strategies and scalable systems and not opinions, rims and feelings. Now this is one thing that I have discovered in the world of entrepreneurship. That is really fascinating when you, when you watch it happen, it’s this thing called osmosis and shove. I want to put the definition of osmosis on the show notes today, because osmosis is probably the number one way that doctors, he has taught me and osmosis means the process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas and knowledge.

So it’s like you’re around the thing enough that all of a sudden, you begin to understand the thing. Another example would be reid hoffman. This is where the early members of paypal, the founder of linkedin the venture capitalists behind greylock partners, who funded things like facebook, instagram airbnb, not book, facebook, it’s a newer ones. You said you were at my face. Was the old one out, facebook i, just real real quickly? I, don’t want the audience to, because I’ve told a lot of people that I thought the best way. I taught you was through the taser. Taser was a good form of reinforcement. Emotions got the process going to go and got the fastest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already the way you want to be I want to start the conversation with you, dr., z and I want to get chuck steak on this. So chuck you see business coach clients come in and usually 60 days later and very, very different person emergency out the other in some take longer. But somebody was coming to the office with a bunch of intentions and goals that aren’t getting done 60 days later, they’re purposeful door. Getting things done so see what advice would you for somebody listening to the show who is maybe surrounding themselves right now with negative people? All the time went by so would have had somebody begin to surround himself with good people very good. First, while your business coach network is your net worth your network, is your net worth and that just isn’t talking fiscal that stalking mental to okay, myself with a heathens and people that steal a lot around myself with it, but I’m able to me like a duck. You know exactly exactly the dogs are going to catch fleas. Here’s the deal play everybody out there listening right now.

This is going to sound kind of mean I’m still pretty sure can I just talk, truth and be honest about, and people that are in your inner circle of people in your inner circle are used to say the word idiots idiots you need to just get rid of him. You need to hunt ghosts, them need to say no more. No more than 4/9 share with you, the three signs around idiots. This is a good audit at 3. If the people that you’re around you are constantly saying there was a miscommunication, there is a strong probability that either you or they are idiots, because I’m around z, consistently and I can think on a hand or maybe a finger of a time where you go. There was a miscommunication right right, but there’s people that brought actually in a state of mississippi. This is what the sign is. They say:i forgot, oh I forgot, you know i, don’t remember, i, don’t remember, and hypothetical world I’m working for you right now in your office, and you asked me to do something and I didn’t have a chance. I feel I forgot. What would you say to me if I said to you I forgot I would say what do it again and I’m going to forget to pay you. The other thing is people who argue everything emotionally everything how to make it perform its emotional you’re, trying to raise prices. It’s emotional you’re trying to fire somebody who’s literally business coach stealing from the business, whether it be not doing their job for stealing cash and every time you and there’s a logical conclusion that needs to be done. The person just can’t do you’re telling me that someone that spent half the day on the the book of face the book at the snap snap snap for a me something really stealing from you, wow that’s harsh book of the face, unbelievable.

This is probably a strong indication that you are around idiots if they say those three things all the time all the time, it’s it. So it was a miscommunication I forgot. They argue with you emotionally now, I know, it’ll suck move under those three they’re. Just comment is:if they’re always perpetually late, they just constantly are super duper late and we had a quarterback who couldn’t actually get on the team plane on time. There has been famous examples of this in professional sports, where a guy is super talented. We just cannot get on the plane on time, like security guard level to sleep at the foot of his and hers, shoulder and put him in the memo at work, ready to come up this so rare drafted and he couldn’t keep his life together. I want to stay for like 8 years in a row. He just couldn’t stay sober, so the rangers are going to haggar’s a deal will sign you, but we need a chaperone to follow you around everywhere, everywhere mvp season of angel sign them and they get rid of the chaperone and he just goes in the toilet. Imagine that so I’m just saying right now, if you’re listening to the show today and you’re, surrounded by people that are idiots, it’s going to slow you down, other signs, you’re going to buy it, it’s just a little little caesars sub moves will sub subsets of the main three main three reasons to worry, your sweater by idiots. Is it the people who are around you all the time are constantly having drama I turn it over to you such an easy one for you, but I think I’ll. Take what folks drama is is the is the resource sucking emotional love, sucking that’s the sound of drama I checked on your life together all the time, and we never have drama drama because we understand how life works. So this is how it be another another another sign, your ear, surrounded by people that are really high on my list, negative people.

If you have a lot of negative people around you, you cannot build a wall around your mind enough to keep it from affecting you. You no answer you. If you so much just constantly negative the constant putting you down there constantly wanting to steal your joy because they can’t manufacture on their own. Those are the kind of people you don’t have to have your inner circle, except the negative is its people that have a new idea. Every day. Oh yeah I forgot about the old idea, so you said to your staff:member, hey everyday i, want you to check inventory for the optometry clinic and then send me once a week. A report once a month to report so I can order like going on every single month. I want an inventory report, so we never run out of a certain frank sure and if I’m an idiot I’m the kind of person that would say, okay and then every 30 days, I forget to do it, but I have a new idea. I love your story about when you work in the restaurant and the guy kept forgetting to order food at so, you feel, like you can cut steaks chicken and a little bit of shrimp at applebee’s. Where are some things have happened, we’re running low right now and shrimp and we’re like some things of her. You ordering it so I mean it’s just require them, something that people require you to constantly remind them of just basic tasks. Another example that one more jump and I’ll turn it over to you. It’s the person that has passive aggressive attack or passive aggressive, just anything about everything. So they might say you might say:hey I would like for you to edit the business coach video and then they would say absolutely I just want to make sure it’s my highest and best use, meaning of what I just wanted to know. I, just you know, I need you to go and call those leads sure.

If no one else can do it. Can you just hear those things where you end up saying where it’s like hey, you want to take you and your wife out for dinner tonight. Absolutely I’d love to go out to dinner with you guys, I mean you know it’s not like I had another plans, companies killed him or you going to stay there. My friend I got a little out of it. This is you and you’re not hanging out with the right people. One thing you can do immediately is start saying no factor when you don’t feel like saying no, but you know that’s not going to take you down the path you want it. So the main way to do that is to really take control of your schedule and don’t just drift in your relationships be very functional and what what’s the word I’m, looking for. Tensional with scheduling those meeting with your friends with people that you want to be around because, like doctors, he said if you’re running with the dogs you’re going to get the fleas thrive time show business coach community we’ve done.

Everyday people who are used to being financially free but they’re, trying to create time for them. I meant other people. Just like me.

You understand what it’s like to manage:a team of people when you surround yourself with people that empathize and get what you’re going through it’s a powerful thing now:david j schwartz, the best-selling author of the magic of thinking, big, writes your mind is what the mind is fed break that down my friend I would not in your backyard and i, planted corn right rows and rows of corn and came back a couple months later and turnips for growing what I would be shocked, shocked would be shop, chaka khan, but yet we plan some people do all kinds of negative and bad things in their mind and their shop, ship, negative and bad things are growing out of their minds. You taught me verbally one time it was asking you about how to deal with people that don’t do their job and I won’t get into the details. It was a man cave session, so some of that some of the details just cannot be honored. But you explain to a business coach gentleman that if he were to do certain painful acts to his anatomy, it would be less painful than it would be for him to go ahead and just fire. The person and you point out to the guy that he was surrounded himself with a village of idiots and the only thing they could grow out of that flock of morons. It was. It was amazing and in the end of the clarity of him doing that and I didn’t you didn’t say this notable quotable. But you live this notable quotable tim ferriss, the best-selling author, the 4-hour workweek says you are the average of the five people you, most associated with & shop.

You see this all the time we will have a client that grew up poor, which, oh by the way, I want to put the stats on the show notes. What is a book called the millionaire, next, door, the millionaire, next door, if you type in the millionaire next door in the new york times chap you’ll find it. What does statistics show that over 8 out of 10 multimillionaires grew up poor who’s, growing up, poor jake brake on a pork chop, and you want to leave poverty? You have to leave the people behind just leave. Poverty took so many kind of work would think of a client right now pick one of your mind. Who’s really doing well. I had to completely change his or her ways of doing business. I would say we talked about on the show when he just continues to update me and he keeps grinding celani smith with a rival 3d at 3 months old. He is, he is on, sat there, so he and he had. He just really has taken command of his schedule lately and it’s awesome watching him change the way he operates cuz. He used to be one of these late-night guys and it’s really hard for me to get up and manages team. In the morning there, for things were happening right cuz he was getting all that work done at night, there’s a negative, a series of statistics that have a positive business coach outcome. If you change your ways, 90% of startups fail. 8 of 10 businesses fail according to cbs news and world report’s, and the us chamber, 75% of employees steal from the workplace. According to cnn money, the average american has less than $500 saved on the show notes, but according to forbes 70% of americans hate their jobs according to gallup, 17% of employees are actively disengaged and actually trying to harm the company.

They work for 17%. So I say all this to say that if you are going to have success, you’ve got to change the ways you’re doing business and see a successful company is ran completely. It’s radically different than unsuccessful company. So successful company thanks-and you tell me what a successful company think that’s fair because send anybody I don’t want to upset that i, don’t upset anybody.
