We are talking about real, deep diving into this concept, called higher learning for higher learning i, just because you’re paying for higher learning. Does it mean that the people who are accepting payment from you are at any point focused on your higher learning I mean all times there. Their they’re totally focused on you paying for that degree and they’re going to let you graduate with that cap and that count, and you can walk down there and feel like you’ve accomplished something I mean they’re going to tell you. You have a degree in splendid, see they always right, and every formal paper is very formal papers. Henceforthwhat is the last time you walked into a business, look at the business owner and ask this top business coach question: what did you go to school? What degrees do you have I have a very brief, but your gpa. What you’re going through do I have a very I’ve two very funny and stories about degrees that are absolutely incredible. Cuz I want to put this in the show notes here, but it’s 85% of people are lying on resumes right now. That’s 85% of people graduated from oral roberts university.

At the time that richard roberts was at the peak of potentially scandalous top business coach behavior. So he was embarrassed that he went or lime to herto apply to be a school teacher at sand, springs, public schools and the person says where. Did you go to college and he says well as it moved to tulsa after I graduate from southwestern baltimore state university southwestern? Now he is basically continued with the insincerity that he dished out and they said that’s amazing, school I’ve heard good things about it. He says:have you heard a lot about it? I said I happy tell me the story that I heard a lot of people. Will you say, have you ever heard of such and such sure I like to say no, have no clue. Educate m as a top business coach. The flying monkeyswhat was the biggest challenge and what was the hardest part for you of having a job? What’s your biggest weakness and all these predicaments caused the usual questions. My biggest struggle is just being too detailed work too hard I work too hard I got to know when to stop shut up early I stay late and he works there he’s in there, he just retired down after having been there like 18, when you retire, the new person who didn’t hire, use getting ready to going to set up your retirement plan and know so we can I say you know you supposed to baltimore state of me to that school closed down. I can’t find anyproof of it even being chartered he’s like yeah here’s, the thing I never went there, it’s not even school right, then another friend of mine, where ovaries are a real animal. He did graduate university in a friend of mine. A friend of mine was a level 3 work at level 3a company in tulsa communications, and he was a tier 3 tech support guy at level 303 and so he’s a guy, and it’s so funny, but I said they will ask. How did you get this job because well, I was a pole, climber hanging up a telephone wire fixing telephone wire, I work in the office, and he says here’s the deal you you have a great record, but then our industry, you have to have a degree to be called a tech support engineer.

You have to have one doesn’t matter. What your degree was a pharmaceutical sales. You have to have a top business coach degree, but doesn’t matter what the degrees is it and he says well, I have a degree oklahoma state went there, studied he had it all laid out, so they hired him again. He been there the longest time and he wanted to come work at dj connections. I heard you can make more 80,000 a year at this company. He heard that I can pay you a hundred thousand into work and I said. So. When do you get your degree because you’re still support questions when you didn’t know how fiber optics work, he is one of these books about how to teach people how to manage effectively.

Any ask me question I told her to put $10 in the tip jar for me, because I won’t answer questions. Other people can answer themselves, cuz, I’m, an effective manager and power. How are you and I’m also proud of my wallet since somebody really didn’t know what would you do literally worked as a tr3, whatever that means engineer for level 3 before they sold the business and did not go to college for it and had no clue what he was doing for over a decade, but I still think you’re being paid?

They just won’t buy from you. Ii is advertising. You got to learn how to advertise effectively and they don’t write each set of college marketing and advertising had to do that.

Susie sponsors called platinum pest, and these guys what they do is they have great branding and they have a great appetite for their advertisements busy, and you have a pest problem like you have bugs, or you have a snake in your backyard was thinking. It was like a neighbor that just really annoys you I want to be pissed i. Don’t they still do that, but you know how you have like termites or you have a bug problem. Okay, come out to call us right now, it’s a dollar $1 they’re, going to come out there and they’re going to figure out. What’s going on they’re going to give you a free top business coach listener consultation in the free treatment at the first treatment for a dollar?

So now, they’re growing cuz, a lot of people in thousands of people are going to platinum. Pest & lawn. Calm sounds of people going to platinum, pest & lawn.

The other advertising right sales people are signing up as the dollar it’s coming up brighter brighter the workflows, great the accountants. Great human resources are recruiting new people that know how to do it now. Public relations that got that ron radio show but see laws of leadership is the spinal step. As you begin to scale a company, you have to learn how to become an effective leader and I’d like to hear from you again as a top business coach , where do I get that wrong. What you got of 10 people, you have to become a leader. Where do most people tend to the wheels to the fall off the wagon where they go off the rails, where people tend to like kind of fail once they get past 10 people when I see the fail, gives me when I see the fail, I see people that know what they’re supposed to do preach. What they’re supposed to do here we go, but they don’t do what they’re supposed to do and there’s nothing worse than a liter that their actions and their words are two different. Things really really really really really bad for business owners that when we coach them and they fix it, what’s so cool when they fix it, everything everything every everything gets better. As a leader y’all pick up that trash, you might say what, yes, is that a deep business tip seriously? Yes, no seriously, jeep pickup, nothing, amazing! How, when your people see you do that when I walk to the auto auction, it was really fun. If I see someone just drop something on the floor and then I walked up and they see me pick it up, yeah right next to them and I just smile and go put. The trash can that’s worth of exactly. The second thing is be on time and early. Really, you got to be on time to cut. Yes, you do nobody, nobody I’m telling you. Nobody knows what to do with the owner of the business. Is 27 minutes late and doesn’t have a plan for their own media. What they do they start talking?

Where is it, but maybe what why do we show up on time this morning? By about 30 minutes, it came in looking all tired, I should have played it off, like they weren’t tired, dane cook has a very funny comedy routine about this free talk. Somebody says:walk manners is ipod 5 at the house alone and he’s like, and then he looks one way and he doesn’t look the other way and he’s like he gets hit by a car. But it about 6 miles and flips up over the hood and he’s like I saw I saw that he was going to be hit and I wanted to say, look out music. Instead, I was like i, didn’t, say it and he’s like stomach, gets hit and he’s like he rolls over the car he’s at, but I think he might have broke his acl or mcl I can’t or tendons off of the bone. You know my goodness and he’s like so, but then the top business coach  guy I want to play it off, like that’s cool I’m, good. Continue, to cut a walk, but he’s like his leg collapses and he’s like he’s walking with his dangling leg and I’m thinking to myself. That’s fine because the guys tried to play it off and he is ritalin the last time to do it and he’s trying to play it off like it’s going to be still and I saw this today in a meeting at 7. There’s a guy supposed to the meeting and he didn’t show up on time. It’s almost half over right and he walks in the hey. What’s up I just woke up, and by that time everybody had said:where is that person I’ll deal with it when he gets here? If you’re late, and you don’t pick up a cares, what you I exactly you lead by actions you lead by doing the right thing sample you leave by being the best employee that you have.

You set the example you took the bar and the problem is this:clay? Is that every now and then you find a unicorn it’ll do this, but for the most part it doesn’t exist. You know what I’m going to be better at this to my boss is never leader, because you know I’m just driven to do that, and nobody is what it was. What was what creates these bogus business tips years of bogus business tip? That’s like a false, humble that it is I would say if you’re going to hire someone to your account and you want them to be better than you, but the top business coach person who has accounting for you, who is remarkably better than you eventually will begin to feel entitled. It will eventually resent you so you’d actually better, be like you a little bit better than them, but go ahead and let them do it. This is why I know platinum. Pest & lawn is going to continue to be a successful company. Proverbs 29:11 states states give full vent of their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back. That’s such a good word for gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly hold it back. American standard bible, a wise man hold these guys king james a fool uttereth all his mind, but a wise man keith with it till afterwards. You see these guys are hard workers, but they don’t run around complaining about the coworkers to the other worker. Come on, guys are diligent, people help, the way they show the way they gone and they grow the way. That’s why I think you should hire the folks at platinum pest & lawn.,, platinum pest & lawn.

Comes to what, if you put your money where my mouth is I’m going to stand behind, you and I am so excited about these top business coach guys because I’ve known these guys for over a year, they are diligent. Dewar’s I met them in a workshop originally, and if you want to get that first treatment, shepherds, just a dollar for dollar pest control, lawn weed control, fertilization related to money back guarantee they have a money back guarantee you can. Even if you move on, if you’re not happy, you get your money back, call him and tell him to go to thrive time, show.Com, where you can find a massive butt corner.
