Yes, yes, yes and yes. Thrive nation on today’s show. Today’s guest has it.

I actually started from scratch and has built a mid seven figure online business. Miss Marisa Murgatroyd, how are you? And welcome on to the thrive time show.

Thank you. Thank you. I am awesome.

Hey, I know you’ve had a lot of success now, but I’d love for you to start off at the very bottom if you can. If you can remember at the very beginning, the Genesis of your career, what was life like growing up for you and where did you grow up? We’re going to go all the way back there. I would love to, I will like your, your, your, I think your success could seem unapproachable to some people.

Well, absolutely. Well, I grew up in suburban Virginia outside of Washington, D C and um, I will say that becoming an entrepreneur was about as far away from my destiny as it could be for anyone. You know, my dad was a career macro economic advisor. My mom was a first generation immigrant from Thailand and they wanted me to have a stable career and my mom still writes to me and says, you know, Melisa you still have enough money to eat, you know, cause she doesn’t understand what it is that I’m doing.

When did you figure out what you wanted to do professionally or what problems you wanted to solve and you know, I mean cause like people, well I guess we’ve had on this show, you know, your Wolfgang puck’s and your John Maxwell, they talked about that this calling or almost like feeling like their, their vocation is more than just a job. When did you feel like you knew what you wanted to do to do professionally?

Well that did not happen on a scene until my mid thirties. And I can tell you the moment when I realized that I needed to make a shift. Basically I’d been working as a documentary film director and um, I loved the work but I didn’t always love the job. I was actually a paid filmmaker, which at least as an accomplishment there. Um, but I was there working on editing a film and my boss who ran the production company comes in and basically said like late in the afternoon, I’d been there for hours and said, you know, Merissa can I have your power cable? I forgot mine at home. And I said, well no, I didn’t have my laptop plugged in. I need it if you want me to deliver this film on time. Cause we had a big deadline that day. And even though there were all these production assistants in the office, she could have asked any of them.

And I was the director of the film. She needed my cable in that moment. She said, Merissa that computer you’re working on right now, I own that computer and that power cord, I own that too. So give me the power in what she didn’t say as Merissa. I basically own you too. And even though that escalated to a screaming match, I ultimately gave her the power cable and in the moment it felt like I was really giving my personal power away as well. And I feel like I was doing what so many other people were doing in that city of 14 million people as I was going into a job every day. That wasn’t the full expression of who I was, but I had no idea what that full expression was. And so I asked myself what else could I do? And I honestly didn’t know at the time because all I knew is that I know how to make things look good and sound good and tell a really freaking good story. But who was going to pay me for that? And honestly, I didn’t know at the time that those three skills are the basis of all business and marketing and whereas they didn’t have a lot of value when I was a documentary filmmaker making 1000 bucks a week in a completely different context, it had a whole lot of value where I can make no $15,000 in a day if not a lot more. Sometimes I’ve made have million dollar days.

You ah, have started this company live your message. Um, well can you explain to the listeners what, what your company does? Uh, cause I think a lot of people are starting to narrow in, we’re starting to see people who are not familiar with you are starting to kind of understand what you do for a living. But, but tell us about what live, live your message doesn’t mean maybe the services that you, that you offer.

Yeah, absolutely. So I like to say that we turn everyday entrepreneurs into online superheroes so they can change the world from their living room. And basically what that means is that whoever you are, if you want to build a business, or even if you’re just trying to figure out what it is that you do and what it is you can offer and how to live your message in the world, we help you really tune in to what you’re all about and how to message brand and position yourself in the market. How to create products and programs and packages to sell your services, products in the world, how to really market yourself online, build your web presence. We basically show you, you know, all of that. And we specialize in online education, so we specialize in helping people build programs, designed to get results for their clients and their students. Because when you can get results for people, you’re going to have a lot more people buying from you over and over again, referring you, telling everyone about you, and your business starts to take off.

How did you, you raise the capital to start this business that’s now taking off and doing so well. Did you, did you have to mow lawns? Did you have to sell a kidney? Did you have to get a small business loan? I mean, what was your, your path to funding this business?

Uh, to be honest, you know, I S funded it with, you know, a couple bucks basically, and it went from there. You know, it does not necessarily take a huge amount of money, especially if you’re in the expertise and education space like I am. You don’t need a lot to get started. It’s really about you, your clarity, you know, finding mentors, finding support, finding step by step systems. It’s not like other businesses like brick and mortar or e-commerce or software where you actually need a huge investment of capital to start up. And the interesting thing is Forbes predicts the online education industry is going to be a $325 billion a year industry by the year 2025 and it’s already over 200 million. So it’s a massive industry, but it takes probably less startup money and capital than any other industry out there.

How did you go about getting your first 10 customers? Did you just walk in and and show them demos of your work or did you, did you cold call? Did you network? How did you get your first 10 customers?

Great question. Well, I actually started out having a branding and web design agency and I still have that branding and web design agency as well as all of our programs and services and a lot of times I went to events, I went to business events and I networked and I met people and they became my first clients and I did a great job so they wanted to refer me to other people. It was basically being out in the world, meeting people, getting out from behind your computer and talking to real live human beings.

Are you saying we should get out from our real police should get our move our bodies from behind the computer or a screen and meet actual humans?

Yes, I am.

That’s w that’s controversial. Now here’s the deal. We have one of our, our incredible, we have a credit and incredible [inaudible] reoccurring guests on the show here. Mr. West Carter, he’s an attorney. His law firm represents huge, a huge personalities, uh, people in the, in the ministry space on West. I know you’re going to interrogate miss. Uh, there are incredible guests here to submitted ms ms Marisa in just a second. But before you interrogate her, think about that, that question that, that controversial question you want to ask her. Th they think about, think long and hard about it now at Merissa he’s going to ask you a tough question, but I’ll go first here. What kinds of things did you say when you went to these networking events? Did you shake hands? Did you tell, tell people you’ll shoot a video for half off or how did you get the conversation going?

Well, I really teach

people how to dial into their message and how to answer that question the first time that they meet someone. Yeah. But ideally you want to speak in a way that they understand that you understand their problems and their challenges and how to solve them. Or you create intrigue by offering a picture of the world and what’s possible that maybe, um, excites them and empowers them and get some curious about what you have to offer. So it’s really about that. It’s really about understanding who your customers are, how you uniquely serve them, what challenges they have. And speaking to that, not speaking from what you do, but speaking to what they want. Do you remember any of the early phrases that you said or any of the little [inaudible], the language that you said when you were first getting out there, getting your first 10 customers?

Well, I do say so. When people ask me what I do, um, I, when I sometimes say I turn entrepreneurs into online superheroes, they actually are like, huh? It intrigues them. What it does, what it calls, it jams, what I call the P touch inside of their brains. So the P touches that little labeling machine that has people stick a label on you. And that basically says, Oh, she is a business coach or she’s a website designer or whatever it happens to do. And as soon as they think they know what you’re about, there’s no more motivation to ask questions. So I like to turn the pee touch into the Midas touch and really help people get curious about what I do. So I would say things like that, which would just get them curious versus have them think that they already know what I do.

Okay. Well, so I’m going to try this out here. West Carter’s an attorney and they’ve represented a big personalities like TD Jakes, a, Joyce Meyer, Craig Rochelle, a lot of people in ministry space, but West, you’re more than just a, a, a legal superstar in the ministry space. You happen to be my attorney and for that I apologize. What question do you have for ms Maurice? Oh, buy a muted you. My passive aggressive West. Are you back? I’m back. No. Well I’m passive aggressive. Sorry about that last. So first hello. Merissa

Hey there.

Yeah, I’m curious in the creative space, you know, a lot of this, I assume originally came from your mind. So as you’re building and you’re scaling this out, how do you protect some time freedom for these other projects or your personal time since you know that’s a kind of an area where it’s so personal, the services you’re providing, do you teach other people to do it? Do you hire other rock stars? Do you just work a hundred hours a week? How does that look as you grow and scale?

Yeah, well, I talk about the four stages of business growth going from what I call blue sky to call me to List-Build to authority. And I like to say that before you can make money while you sleep, first you’ve got to be able to make money while you’re awake. So a lot of times I recommend that my students and clients start off by serving people one-to-one. But very quickly, once you start to fill the one on one practice, going into one diffuse small group programs and things like that, and ultimately into one to many where you can have thousands of customers at. And as you kind of make that progression from blue sky into kind of the list build and authority stages, you also start to build your team. You start to hire on other facilitators. If you’re on online education, other business coaches, other, you know, people to support your vision.

I mean, my personal goal was within three years from now to be completely irrelevant. Like that means that, I mean actually let me change that word. It’s not irrelevant. I’m still relevant, but the, I get to choose when and how I show up and if and how I show up. So if I don’t want to show up to something, I have plenty of other people on my team who can show up for me. I’m still exciting. I’m still a draw and all of that, but I don’t need to be the front person all the time.

Got it. So yeah, so you’re, obviously you’re a rock star, especially, you know, in your marketing for your business. You know, as we flip through the website, you know, your name, your, your image. Um, do you ever get clients that say, Oh, I was hoping Merissa would show up? No, I’m not a so-and-so. Um, and how do you handle just kinda for our listeners, how do you handle that? Because otherwise I know my experiences and talking to listeners, sometimes we just get overwhelmed and we lose control of our schedule and all of a sudden we’re doing all these engagements. We’d rather not do. How have you had to work that work through that before?

Well, yeah. For example, if it’s a private client, uh, someone who wants private time with me, okay, great. You know, Merissa you can work with Merissa starting at $15,000 a day or $100,000 a year. If that’s not in your investment level, then we’ve got programs we get to interact and engage with her in a group setting. Right. Or we’ve also trained a whole bunch of business coaches. If that’s not in your price range either,

that probably gets them on a different path pretty quickly unless they have that kind of money to spend. Yeah. What now, when did you realize that live your that you’re, that your brand was going to actually be solvent and sustainable? When, when did you get that traction where you thought, I can actually go to sleep and not be stressed out? And when did, when did that happen?

Well, I still stress sometimes to be a hundred percent honest and, but let me see. Um, I think that my original business was called BCN boldly. And you know, I teach people a lot about really positioning themselves in their market. And that one just didn’t get people excited. Almost the very first week I launched live your message back in, um, I believe it was 2011 people started to respond to me differently almost immediately. It’s like the brand itself and the message itself had cache. And knowing that I had the capability to excite people with what I was saying almost feels like the keys to the kingdom. So everything else from going from, you know, zero to $175,000 a year, 175,000 to half a million, half a million to a million, a million to two, two to three, three to four. You know, all of that stuff is growth, but it really was cracking that original code. It’s what I call this sort of the DNA of what you’re all about and when you’ve got that DNA, then a lot of the rest of it is strategy and it’s marketing, but getting to that core DNA is where I think a lot of people either never take the time to get the clarity or they’re just a bit off in what they’re working on.

Where do you call home home now? Like where? Where are you at right now?

Yeah, I live in Topanga Canyon, which is just outside of Los Angeles in California, so I live kind of surrounded by nature. I go hiking every single day and I work primarily from my laptop.

And you, if, if, if the listeners out there go to [inaudible] live your again, if the listeners go to live your you write on the side about weird pricing triggers, weird pricing triggers that make people buy, I’d love for you to share about maybe one of these triggers or a couple of these weird pricing triggers.

Yeah, absolutely. So this is basically one of the free, you know, gifts that we give to people when they sign up for our work. And a lot of times, you know, when you want to sell more, you’ve just got to find the right pricing. And um, part of that is, is like what is the entry point price? What’s something that’s based on where I’m a product is in your particular funnel. So for example, a lot of times, you know, we have about six different products that are all under $50 in price points. They might be $7 1727 37 $47 a give people a very, very easy way to say yes to us. Now simply having the seven versus 10 2030 40 and 50 is a very simple pricing trigger. But there’s other kinds of pricing triggers. Have you ever heard of spiritual pricing? So for example, a lot of my students who are in personal development or in spiritual markets, so a lot of times they’ll have numbers like 33 or $11 rather than 17 in 27 and that’s indicating these are using numbers, repeating numbers.

They become master numbers and master numbers when they’re repeated and have more significance and meaning on the numerology of that number. So that’s an example. Now I don’t use spiritual pricing because we are much more hard and fast as a business company, but a lot of our students do. And that kind of signals to your audience who you are and what you care about. So that’s an example of a couple of pricing triggers, but it goes all the way up to your highest ticket programs. Whether you have a a $20,000 or $30,000 program, $100,000 programs. Understanding the pricing at each stage in your customer journey is super key. And also understanding, okay, now that you’ve got a product at this price point, what’s the next price point you should consider? How do you ascend people from becoming, you know, one time, low ticket buyers to investing in some of your most premium offers?

You, you come across as a very proactive person, you know a lot about pricing, you know a lot of about branding. You, you’ve obviously invested time to be proactive. What is your typical day look like? I mean, you kind of walk us through those first four hours of Palo, you know, when you’re really get wakened up and you’re popping into up and you just get to get excited and you’re ready to go. What is the first four hours of your day look like?

Yeah, yeah. Well I start by hiking for me and my husband do a 40 minute hike up, uh, up a Hill and a kind of little mountain in the canyons every single day and then eat a good breakfast. And then usually in the morning before noon, I have block time, block time to either write, think or work on the highest priority item in my business and then from one o’clock to about five o’clock um, you know, five or six I do calls a lot of them, our team calls, a lot of them are webinars. A lot of them are podcasts, a lot of them might be sessions for existing students, clients and customers. These are all the different kinds of things that I might be doing in the afternoon. I take an hour off to meditate somewhere in there. So kind of as long as I have my morning to work on the things that I think are important, I’m willing to do whatever it takes in the afternoon because I’m a creator. And when you understand your kind of archetype as an entrepreneur and you understand what feeds you and where your greatest gifts are and you can focus on giving that to yourself a lot of times it helps some of the things that maybe are not as fun or as comfortable for you to happen. Like for me, you know, being on team calls hours a day with my team, even though I love my team, sometimes it’s not as exciting to me as sitting down and crafting something brand new out of the ether. Makes sense.

Yeah. Let me ask you this, because uh, you’re, you’re, you’re helping us kind of craft this visual of your schedule and our minds here. Out of the, out of the ether. What time are you waking up every day? Typically?

I usually wake up between six and 7:00 AM I don’t set an alarm, so I just wake up naturally.

Get outta here. You don’t set an alarm, you just wake up naturally?

I do

real. Now does your husband wake up naturally or is he an alarm? Is he an armed guy?

He wakes up naturally too, but usually after me.

Okay. Okay. And now, um, do you have a, do you have any kids or cats?

No kids, no cats, but about to get a dog. What kind of dog? Well, it’s gotta be hypoallergenic. I want it to be. Um, I’m thinking of a mole shoe, which is half Maltese in how shit suit cause it’s half and half and I’m half white, half Asian. So it kinda like makes me feel comfortable as a dog. That’s got to be a little too, cause I’m a little too, I’m four foot 11 and a quarter, so,

well I’m, I’m half a, a white and pasty male, uh, as the West kind of testing. So I’m thinking about getting a ghost as a pet West there. I care like a pillow, half Viking, half Danish. Yeah. It’s, it’s, I repel a sunlight and I, I burned just by looking at Google going outside, I immediately burned my skin. Now I want to ask you, because you had huge success and usually when you have huge success, you find somebody who’s had great mentors. Um, what are, what are maybe, what’s a mentor that’s made the biggest impact on your life?

Oh, there’s definitely a progression. So, um, you know, when I first got started, I was studying from a lot of the internet marketing greats, whether it’s Brendon Burchard and Jeff Walker, and taking Eben pagan, then taking all their programs. And it’s because, you know, many of the people that I originally studied with are now my friends or my joint venture partners. So, um, sometimes like when you, when you study from people, you don’t know who you’re going to become and you might end up becoming their friends later on, which is great. And you know what? I went into PR, uh, private coaching when I had my coach. Bill Baron helped me a lot. I have a lot of personal development coaches now to be honest. And I’m working with someone right now. Um, Mitch Russo, who was the CEO for the Tony Robbins company, and he’s helping us build our sales teams, um, and scale that side of our business.

So I’m always working with someone and I’m in a mastermind called plat plus with, you know, 50 of the top marketers on the planet. Um, it’s a got all kinds of awesome people there. Stu McLaren and Ryan Laveck. And you know, I don’t read Tracey, the founder of hay house or the CEO of hay house. I don’t know if you know any of these people, but you know, I just like to surround myself with some of the smartest men and women in the room and learn from them on a regular basis. So at least, you know, five, six, seven, eight times a year I’m out and about learning still.

Wes, I have two final questions for Merissa. I’ll, I’ll, I’ll give her all [inaudible] go with question one, then you can go with the next one, then we’ll come back to me. [inaudible] so Marissa, you, um, you’re, you are a person who’s got so much going on and when we interview big, big people like yourself, I say big, successful, you’re, you’re a small person, but it’s very successful person. When we interview super successful people, we find that a lot of you have it idiosyncrasies. You know, things were like Steve jobs were the same thing every day. President Obama and his wife vowed to meet no new people on their first campaign trail for president. Uh, for the presidents of the presidency of the United States, there’s always these idiosyncrasies. You know, there’s, there’s kinda, do you have an idiosyncrasy that maybe to you as like a superpower?

Hmm. I have so many [inaudible] secrecy is, I think, I mean, when I look at my creative time is what I guard like my life depends on it. So really, you know, someone was talking to me about it and I talk about getting into creative flow and oftentimes being creative flow for three to four hours a day. And so I don’t, you know, go out late. You know, if I, if I’m not sleeping by 11 o’clock, I’m not as productive the next day. So I try to kind of start turning in by nine or 10. I don’t drink any alcohol. Um, I don’t do anything that’s gonna actually reduce my mental capacity the very next day. So I’m kind of religious about that because when I do that, the very next day I can wake up and be in such incredible creative flow. Yeah. And that’s some of the most magical moments in my life are just what happens when I closed the door and what I can create just alone by myself. Do you like star Wars? Who doesn’t?

Okay, so there we go. I, I was feeling, I was just, I was trending towards, I bet you like star Wars. I like star Wars. I’m glad we share in that moment. Whereas I think I’m asking all the tough questions over here. I’m gonna pass it over for you, for one of your, you know, mail it in questions.

I’m curious, you know, you give probably advise a lot of people, it sounds like, you know, whether one-on-one these groups,

um, the, the one to that you’re talking about, is there one piece of advice that you give people that you find they either don’t follow very well or they push back on their accounts? You know, kind of that one piece is if you just do this, even though you don’t want to, it would make such a huge difference.

Yeah. It’s kind of what I was saying a little bit earlier about before you can make money while you sleep. First you’ve got to be able to make money while you’re awake and actually following the stages of business growth and the blue sky stages where I recommend one-on-one sales, one-on-one marketing, and one-on-one kind of offers, and a lot of people want to skip to having these huge membership sites that have thousands of people and making all kinds of passive income. But if you can’t sell one person, what makes you think you’re gonna be able to sell a thousand? Right? Yeah. And it’s, sorry. It’s gonna allow you to iterate your way to awesome and really kind of fine tune your message, your offers, your audience have a much better understanding of all that before you invest a lot of time and money in technology and marketing firepower on something that people may not want.

That’s great. It says basically prove your concept. Prove you can do it before you scale it up, where you’re going to have that huge investment.

Marissa, you are blowing my mind. You’re just awe. Just knowledge bombs everywhere. It just wears. I, I feel I’ve always felt nauseous. It’s so sick.

I almost feel guilty for not knowing Merissa before today.

It’s impressive. I mean, Merissa for the listeners out there that would like to learn more about you were, or what, what final tip would you give to our listeners and maybe where can they learn more about you?

Yeah, absolutely. So the final tip is one of my favorite quotes of all time. And it’s by the late great motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar. And he said that you can have anything you want in life, actually everything you want in life, if you’ll just help enough other people get what they want. And I feel like so many people make business about themselves. And even though business is an expression of who you are and your gifts in the world, you gotta make it about your clients and being of service. And when you do, the world will unfold for you as well as knowing how to get people results. And what I really specialize in is getting people results. All right. So, um, that’s going to my focus and helping you get results for your students, clients and customers. So I’ve actually put together a guide called my viral product checklist, which are 10 core principles that you want to embed in any kind of product, service or offer. If you want people to get so excited and engaged with who you are and what you do that they want to like consume everything, get to the end, do the work, refer you and buy your next product. So I put that up for [email protected], forward slash thrive. And um, you know, you can sign up for that and get started.

There’s a lot of debate out there on the internet. Can you, can you share with listeners the proper way to pronounce last name?

You know, Mo, there’s more debate about my first name than my last name, believe it or not. So my first name is Marissa. A lot of people mispronounced it and say, Marissa. So I say it’s like Theresa,

I was on that team, I was on the mispronunciation team. You’ve corrected me, you’ve healed me.

I did. But the last name is actually phonetic. It’s Marisa Murgatroyd. And I will tell you a funny story is when I was in college, someone call me up and say hi. You know, I’m calling for miss Marisa Murgatroyd. That’s M U R G, a, T. R. O. Y. D. now we’re having a re insurgence of transformers and we’re thinking of calling one the Murgatroyd and we’re calling every Murgatroyd in the country to see if that’s okay with you. And I thought it was being pumped, but the voice was so good that it was too good to be a punk. Yeah. So it’s like a fancy, you know, transformer, robot kind of name.

Well, Marissa, thank you so much for, for being on the show and helping to, I know and undoubtedly impact our listeners and maybe help transform alive for too. And I appreciate you making all this information available and uh, I’ve just, uh, hope you have an incredible rest of, of, of your day.

Thank you very much. It’s been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to meeting more of you [email protected] forward slash thrive

Stop what you’re doing, and think about this for a second. What would happen if your company was suddenly able to generate exponentially more quality sales leads? That would be incredible.

How many thousands of dollars in lost sales or millions of dollars in lost sales are you missing out on simply because your potential customers can’t find you when they go online to search for the products and services that you offer.
