Learn to Keep People Dependent on You

Show Notes

Clay breaks down Laws of Power #11 and 12 and observed my best-selling author Robert Greene in his best-selling book, The 48 Laws of Power.

Law 11: Learn to keep people dependent on you.

  1. NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “To maintain your independence you must always be needed and wanted. The more you are relied on, the more freedom you have. Make people depend on you for their happiness and prosperity and you have nothing to fear. Never teach them enough so that they can do without you.” – Robert Greene
  2. NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Unfortunately, most people will almost always do what is best for them.” – Clay Clark
  3. EXAMPLE – Examples of employees who have screwed me over:
    1. While running DJConnection.com (The former meat carver, the former Chick-fil-A employee, the Rhema guy)
    2. While running EpicPhotos.com (The watching Game of Thrones while at work guy, the mountain of former photographers, etc.)
    3. While running EITRLounge.com (The I-love-you-so-much-I-would-never-screw-you-over-people, the false rumor spreaders, etc.)
    1. Install video cameras WITH audio
    2. Install phone recording software
    3. Forbid employees from talking to clients, not on non-recorded lines

Law 12: Use selective honesty and generosity to disarm your victim.

  1. Buyers beware of people that use selective honesty and generosity…a scam could be coming.
  2. DEFINITION – A Charlatan – A person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill; a fraud.
  3. EXAMPLE #1 – In the early 1990s, Trudeau was convicted of larceny and credit card fraud. In 1998, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) accused him of grossly misrepresenting the contents of his book, The Weight-Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You to Know About. In a 2004 settlement, he agreed to pay a $500,000 fine and cease marketing all products except his books, which are protected under the First Amendment. However, in 2011, he was fined $37.6 million for violating the 2004 settlement, and ordered to post a $2 million bond before engaging in any future infomercial advertising. In 2013, facing further prosecution for violations of the 2011 agreement and non-payment of the $37-million judgment, Trudeau filed for bankruptcy protection. His claims of insolvency were challenged by FTC lawyers, who maintained that he was hiding money in shell companies, and cited examples of continued lavish spending, such as $359 for a haircut.
  4. In November 2013, Trudeau was convicted of criminal contempt and is currently serving a 10-year sentence at a Federal Prison Camp in Alabama. Infomercials starring Trudeau and promoting his books—under the auspices of a private California corporation of undisclosed ownership—continue to air regularly on US television stations
  5. EXAMPLE #2 – After a 16-month federal grand-jury probe, Bakker was indicted in 1988 on eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. In 1989, after a five-week trial which began on August 28 in Charlotte, North Carolina, a jury found him guilty on all 24 counts. Judge Robert Daniel Potter sentenced Bakker to 45 years in federal prison and imposed a $500,000 fine. At the Federal Medical Center, Rochester in Rochester, Minnesota, he shared a cell with activist Lyndon LaRouche and skydiver Roger Nelson.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld Bakker’s conviction on the fraud and conspiracy charges, voided Bakker’s 45-year sentence and $500,000 fine, and ordered a new sentencing hearing in February 1991. The court ruled that Potter’s sentencing statement about Bakker, that “those of us who do have a religion are ridiculed as saps from money-grubbing preachers or priests”, was evidence that the judge had injected his religious beliefs into Bakker’s sentence. A sentence-reduction hearing was held on November 16, 1992, and Bakker’s sentence was reduced to eight years. In August 1993, he was transferred to a minimum-security federal prison in Jesup, Georgia. Bakker was paroled in July 1994, after serving almost five years of his sentence. His son, a Jay, spearheaded a letter-writing campaign to the parole board advocating leniency. Bakker was released from Federal Bureau of Prisons custody on December 1, 1994. Bakker later remarried and returned to televangelism, where he works on The Jim Bakker Show. He sells buckets of food to his audience on the show, in preparation for the end of days.

However, the laws of power are not laws of power. That I would agree, so you say well, how do you do that? Any or the laws of power that conflict with my judeo-christian faith than I would want to vaccinate you against those moves? Any of the movesare parallel with my christian faith. I would definitely be okay with using those much walking you through the 48 laws of power. To make sure we get the vaccination is. Vaccination is basically where you take a small amount, whatever the deceit, the diseases and you expose yourself to that disease and that’s what keeps you from a dying from the disease, because it creates an exposure to disease, a limited exposure which has been shown to create an immunity against the disease without george washington won the war versus the british. We were just being destroyed by disease and he advocated for inoculating his troops. Don’t think you’ve made a lot of listeners realize this, but they were losing 10 times more people to disease and they were from bullet or from cannon fire. People were not being killed from paying that they were killing. They were dying as a result of disease, and so he made the tough call to inoculate the people which of the time was still an unprovenmove, and it ended up saving that the people in in winning the war.

Turning the tide in long has to beat the british and so long for 11 from 48 laws of business coach power is learn to keep people dependent upon you for mr. Robert greene, the author of the book before I break it down to maintain your independence. You must always be needed and wanted the more you are rely on the more freedom you have make. People depend on you for their happiness and prosperity, and you have nothing to fear, never teach them enough so that they can do it without you. What I have found it when you have an employee and they work for you and they learn every aspect of your system. So I did not have this wisdom, the first four years, so I train the guys to dj and then once you were a good dj, you got to work in the call center and then went to work in the call center. You got a chance to become a manager and when she became a manager, you got a chance to eat with me and screw me overevery single time. There wasn’t an exception. Every single one of them grew up to compete against me. I’ll give example for working at the golf oklahoma carbon meet the meat carver a meeting at your meat carver. Would you like a different job, because he said hey I’d like to learn about maybe being a dj someday? Do you do that? So I talked to his boss, miss kitty and I said. Would it be okay if I hired this guy he’s too talented to work here, carbon meet? This is just an entry-level job for him, so I taught him how to dj he got promoted, worked on or call center. He signed a non-compete like everybody else. He became a manager and then one day I’m setting up my dj equipment at the crowne plaza setting up the gear with some guys and I was actually there to oversee one of our djs i. Was there to mystery shoppingand in the lobby.

I see another guy who looks just like mr. Critzer mr. Kreitzer hello, and he says oh hey man, just filling in for my friend’s wedding that couldn’t find and tj and I was going to make so you’re starting your own dj company. Not just was dj for my friend and so I said to mr. Keith mr. Keith good, to see you here at the renaissance hotel. He says dj for a friend, patty of sightseeing great system. You have your mr. Thaddeus says hi. This is dj friend. Does people out therethey constantly do this I have never in my entire life done that kind of thing, i. Don’t do a business coach shady moved where I screw over my boss and you say I thought you work for it dj before you started dj connection, that’s right, I did mr. Rob higgins. You can call him to verify. I realize that my ambition to grow a dj empire was bigger than his desire to grow this company in twice a day with me, starting my own business, and he said no I would just make sure you do not call any of my active clients and it made my active clients call you to hire you. If you will turn down the business. That would be the high road and I said it. So we’re still friends to this day. I did not know that and so I trained, so many people that became our competitors, one of which is so super fun if you type in tulsa wedding photographers right now, if you took tulsa wedding photographers, this is hysterical. Guy who used to work in our office actually came up in the mapfor the longest time he came up in the map. At speaking, he was a guy who worked in her office and he registered our own office as the home office of his own business smart and he actually came up top and google. It was stealing customers, while still working for us being used against you.

Have you ever seen it where you’ve seen somebody who worked for a business that you ran sneak could sneak in there and all the sudden become your number one competitor? What I have seen a lot of it from my personal experience is trying to train guys up and they just you know you can’t get them cuz. We didn’t know these systems that I’ve learned from you and z over the last few years, and so we train these guys up. We just never could get them to do what they need to do to help a business grow and then they would get poached off by somebody else and turn into the exact person that we needed them to be because they’re being held accountable. Marshall is a business coach, use I’m sure you’ve never had a client that you worked with, that has ever experienced somebody nefariouslycompeting against their own boss, while being employed by the years. The thing is, when you are maybe disengaged with the operations of your business and you are completely hands off. You open yourself up to not knowing what’s going on in your business coach right until even with being engaged with the business. This is going to happen, so one of the things that you can do is identify when employees in have maybe that sneaking suspicion and being suspicious of all times that your employees are going to go out and start something to directly compete against. You I took one of the things in order to inoculate in vaccinate yourself from this particular law of power. Is you got to know what’s going on under your own businesses roof and if you are completely hands off and you’re, not checking in and you’re not meeting with employees you should be so here is the action steps that you can take. One install video cameras and all your businesses to put onrecording on all your phone lines. 3 forbid your employees to talk directly to clients outside of the company phone lines. Only the paranoid survive, the founder of intel would say the city, the founder of intel andy grove, says only the paranoid survive, give them, but I don’t forget, i, never speak to them again ever set.

My that’s my ethicon that I say:i, forgive you! The church has a place for you, i, don’t I’m done, because if you bring them back in I’ll, do it again and I used to let people back in and it’s korea second time. This happened over over over I’ll. Give me example elephant the room we had to let a guy gohe says I’m going to I’m not going to screw you guys over I’m. So sorry, he comes back after he screwed us over the first time, and literally did that I did not make the decision to bring the guy back I literally caught him on camera. Saying I’m going to start my own thing here soon, I just want to let you know it’s just down the street over and over once a scammer. Always a scammer do not allow people to take advantage of you or 12. It is a move that is controversial, stay tuned. It’s the thrive time show on your radio and podcast download get it today at the rock time. Show.Combroadcasting live from the center of the business coach universe, its business school. Without the bs entrepreneur of the year clay, clark super pocket bike, the room was, he is I & i. Is him? Yes? Yes, yes and yes, what the back of the drive time show on your radio and podcast download teaching you the listeners kind of vaccinate yourself against the 48 laws of power laws of power was a book written by the best-selling author, robert greene, headed to stills, how many people use shady techniques, tactics and strategies to get to a place of power. There’s a lot of people that will do whatever it takes to become successful., I believe to gain the world and lose your soul is not worth it. So this next number 12 inch chop when I teach you to look at law.

The purpose of teaching you the law is for you to be able to keep other people from using this law against you. That’s why I’m going to use this as a shield uses as a shield shop? You know what I got to say something though just sound so squeaky clean today on the show. It’s amazing like something going on I’m, not jump in my ears. It is the classic janitorial guys those guys have been in the studio. Is the man I haven’t, had a rule in my life that existed for since birth, but it’s called the 10-second rule over there to be like eating nachos, and if you’re alone, with yourself alone, can you drop a nacho on the ground? You could go I’m going to get up and run to the restroom seem to run to the restroom. Come back. Look both ways to make sure no women present for good, and you just pick it up and eat it right now, a real, a real man like erick shop. Here like myself, we could drop at business coach marshall. You could do this to. You could drop a piece of meat on the ground. You know and you could come. You could like go to the store at age, the movie. You can come back about 7 days later, the patina on the top of it is probably too much, but you know, what’s not going to be there to ease the bottom of that piece of meat if you have class, if you have a good present classic, these are fabulous. Show sponsors-and these guys are not only client, so we help them to grow their business trip, but they are actually the janitorial service that we use the thrive time show world headquarters now and I’m telling you what next time you come to the office when you go to that bathroom I called the porcelain palace now and when you go in there, that porcelain is going to be clean and I’m telling you.

If you wanted to use the urinal as a water found. You probably could. Would we not supposed to do that cuz? Then it’s not going to check these guys out at the classic clean.Com for new customers, they’re offering a free floor cleaning which includes cop buffing, carpet shampooing in a high-traffic areas. So a 918-671-2046 again, that’s 918-671-2046, the classic clean.Com new tagline should be week. We make your urinal so clean. You could use them at the water, fountain I’m teaching you so that you won’t have used against you. It’s a dirty move. You need to take a shower and read the bible. If you’re hearing this law I like the wording of it too, so they use selective honesty and selective honesty and generosity to disarm your victim. So here is how this law is used. All the time example number one name of kevin trudeau, who was convicted of larceny and credit card fraud in a variety of other issues. Okay, he’s currently in federal prison, but his commercials are still running book called the weight loss cure. They don’t want you to know that he agreed he had to pay a $500,000 fine and had to see some business coach marketing all the products except his books, because under the first amendment you can say whatever you want to say check that out. So you can say whatever you want to say. He just can’t sell the products to the guy was selling millions of dollars of books and books, told you to buy these products. So then he just started recommending other products and kickbacks on those products. Why was he used real scientific data to show the problem and it completely made up data to show a solution? Have you ever met somebody eric chap who is a member of a pyramid scheme who is selling a product? That’s not real, but yet they state scientific data, that’s real problem, and then they say what independent research in europe has shown that this could be the cure all. Have you ever seen that movie yeah they’ll say something like charles hopkins university, like a mixture between like brown or no john, brown or hopkins, whatever they like try to make it sound like it’s something and then they’ll usually kind of switch to as soon as you say, we have so tell me more about that. We’re, less of a product-based company, more of it more of you know about about signing people up and whatever yeah definitely I’m working on a book. It’s called smoke your way too thin and I’m. Thinking about mark made that you could say. I could say. I could say that, because I’m, a christian and I would hate to ever point out when you have a person who puts himself out there to be a pastor, screwing people. But this is the jim bakker show, okay, so jim bakker. That’s what he does this is. This is great jim bakker decides to go out there and to commit a lot of fraud and 4515 counts of wire fraud, okay out there, and he continues to basically convince people to give money to his church and he uses all of the money for things not related to the church.

Okay, so he ends up getting busted, taking an insane amount of money, so security federal prison. He goes to jail, so he gets parole cold in july of 1994 and after certain almost 5 years of a sentence, his son jay spearheads a letter-writing campaign to the parole board, advocating him to be let out because look he needs to be let out he needs to be. Let out because he’s really is he a danger to humanity? I mean i, know he’s frauded many old, ladies out of their money. I know he’s taking money and used it all for personal gain and not help others, but really he’s not a danger to people right. He just hurting their hearts. Not there she’s got this thing called the jim bakker show at the end of the world is going to happen if each year he has seen this guy on tv each year. He advocates that this is the year of armageddon and it gives you historical proof, selective honesty we had more hurricanes than any other year or something like that and you’re going wow. You think back and you go marshall. How did they track hurricanes back in like 1602. Who was that there was a hurricane in the philippines? How would they know because there was no universal place that tracked all the weather patterns in on the earth? Furthermore, furthermore, if you would like in the 1500 1600 1700, so how long are you in your stand? But I did have carrier pigeon technology montana and, like the year 1507, it wouldn’t be montana known what year was back in the day, while he wouldn’t even know what day it was contracted it down. Like my dad was bored at some major I did some montana montana selective honesty and he uses it to get you to chill again be wearing? This is this? Is my final exam I want to give you-and this is a mile of my favorites, because it happened about 3 years ago from someone who is not a dear friend, but they were posing as a dear business coach friend, and this is what they said play hey man I just want to talk to you. Man I have been praying about you, the right there, that’s where I first get a little crazy red flag by said. Okay, what’s the deal, are you aware that are most disease and chronic weight gain is caused by states, real facts, real facts, its side and I’m going? This is craig. He said, probably actually ground level the product to the ground floor right now and it’s it’s been shown independently.

Does research research been be done right now in sweden switzerland, it’s over europe is way ahead of where we’re at now and they’re, showing that this newberry, you can only get in alaska these bottles and drink. This stuff it’ll absolutely help you in the founder of the companies like a billionaire to which I said so he’s like a billionaire. So he’s like what is he a billionaire? He said absolutely I said:what’s his name, i, don’t really know his name a business coach billionaire who’s not listed on the forbes list of billionaires and you don’t know his name was no. He made his money all through like x on the book. So what is his name and I can I can go find the right? He says you’re majoring in the minors here you got to focus on the opportunity to which I said get out of my house looks like the honesty against you
