By planning to the end you will not be overwhelmed by circumstances and you will know when to stop. Gently guide fortune and help determine the future by thinking far ahead.” – Robert Greene

But I will tell you this people who exchange their soul for money. They don’t get peace. Actually they actually get the finances and they’re, usually bleeding, because when you try to get rich, quick and screw people along the way to get there, typically, the people get to earn money. That way there I’m telling you that your money does not stick around and I never do get piece. They just get a piece of the finances for a while and so eric. What is the next? We are breaking down here on the 48 laws of power, deep dive, edition 28 interaction with boldness, okay, interaction that enter into action. So when you going to take action, enter action with boldness, he says, if you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. You’re doubting hesitations will infect your execution. Timidity is dangerous better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected. With more audacity, everyone admires the bold, no one honors the timid, I would say this. I would say if you as a best business coach, if you think about this again, going through the judeo-christian worldview here, I would always say the history does favor the bold, but I also know that if you, if you do read the bible and you can you invest any time in studying you’ll know the bible talks about how god has plans god has plans to to help you write.

God has plans to see you blast, but god. So it’s not be aware where god wants you to screw everybody over in written route to your success. Is a hundred percent true and if napoleon hill over here to comment on this napoleon hill, the best-selling author of think and grow rich, describes that the inability to make decisions after one has gathered all of the fax is a huge problem for leaders, and so, if you, what you want to do, this is how you make decisions as a leader in the book the art of war. They call it slow, slow, quick, quick, but this is how you make decisions. If your leader, step 1, you gather all the facts right step going to gather all the facts. Step2, you think about the consequences of taking action. Think about that job! Hey! If I do this. This will be the byproduct of taking that action or maybe even further, take that what’s the next step, there’s two best business coach consequences it it’s it’s a domino effect right. Whatever you do now, there’s going to be things that happened on the road, so try to think as far down as you can see. What’s going to happen, example:elephant in the room or men’s grooming lounge. We have a aaa membership model right, we have membership model, and so my partner jonathan barnett and i. We did all the best business coach math and we realized that if we built a membership model, men’s grooming a hair lounge that we would have to get to about a thousand members to achieve our financial goals. And now, with thousands and thousands of members, were we’re well past that right? Well, then, we thought about the consequences like if you have a membership model, what are the benefits of that right?

Well, i! Guess the benefits of the stylist are:they can have consistency of income? Are they can have consistency of clientele when it when it rains or snows, were probably like to be a slow because people already prepaid for their haircut? You have more and more loyalty with the customers and familiarity with those customers, so those are all positive thing for the negative things. Won’t the negative things are a lot of people never heard of a membership for hair. We have to train everybody on how to sell it, how to communicate it. What if somebody wants a refund? You have to have an automatic recurring billing software in place to manage that you’d have to have there’s a lot of details there, so we can gather all the facts then step to think about the consequences of those actions. This is a huge and chub I would just say that I think it would be a lot of clients. We work without a business, coaching clients. They will typically ask us questions after they’ve made the decision right and I would just say that the idea would be to seek out wise best business coach counsel previous to making the decision. We don’t do you say, watch abc, small business owners that say:hey I already made this decision now. How do I get out of it? Yeah and I think the root issue there is that they’re trying to think strategically during the middle of the day? And we talked about that a lot, but you got to separate some time out on your schedule to make these decisions, were you have time to actually put focused thought into these actions that your guys are going to take within your business? So you got a block that time out and actually kind of plan that in be a you know, got to be forthright and think about what you’re going to do and when I was actually going to text. You guys right there in front of you on the table, was in the man cave and then studio scrolls there money in the scrolls are the elephant in the room.

Homepage. Grapes are going to be changing up some button mess around some of the forms here and I just got some red marker on this Thing:i’ll print it out, so it why do I do I do that on the weekend, because there’s no way for you to sit down and anna nice things during the day. There’s too many things going on too many distractions back-to-back meetings, dozens of employees that have issues managers that you have to follow up with. So you can’t you can’t do that. You can’t sit down and actually write content and think about how people are going to interact with your website during the middle of the day. I’ve done a lot of analysis on the site and making just some basic changes that will be introducing the world to our franchise model and into the stories. The stories behind the founders and I did a lot of best business coach website updates, but again 11 scrolls 11, there’s one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definitely sad purpose. The knowledge of what one wants in a burning desire to possess it. That’s accurate step, one gather all the facts, step to think about all the consequences of taking that action. Step, 3 boldly take that action just boldly take the action once you do it once you get all the facts. You say you know what I’ll do my best and I will forget the rest I’ll check what slot 2929 says plan all the way to the end, the ending is everything plan all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, obstacles and twist of fortune. That might reverse your hard work and give the glory to others by planning to the end. You will not be overwhelmed by circumstances, and you will know when to stop gently guide fortune and help determine the future by thinking that far ahead, there’s so much meat there, but I want to make sure that each and every one of our listeners get this. The book 48 laws of power is a book written by robert greene and if any of the laws in the book conflict with your moral compass as a judeo-christian or ever faith you have I would definitely would not use the move. Just cuz you’re in your what he’s doing is robert greener, just documenting move that people have used throughout history to get what they want.

Try really really do believe that law 29 is my superpower, the things that I do very very well so I’m going to break down each part of that. So he says the ending is everything the ending is everything this is so true. You got to think I was just going to play out, he’s a plan, all the way up plan, all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, an optical. It’s so big that before you even start, a business venture that you think realistically about the about the struggles and the trials and tribulations you’re going to have to go to and route to being successful. So I’m going to tell you what it would be like if you bought an elephant to the room franchise, all the obstacles, all the consequences, all the trade-offs, I think I’ll be a good example of planning all the way they do. You are now entering the dojo of best business coach mojo and the thrive time show kick it. Yes, you can can I kick it? Yes, you can can I kick it? Yes, you can can i. Guess you can. This is click clock on the mic and can topical castano, pinochet and I’m focused on the mission beach, the skills and kitchen plans broadcasted from advance to the left to the portland, and now my friends, you got to dance to see. It, and I’ll be to see it. Yes, that would stick it like fat man. Why do I meet you out back to the conversation? Didn’t have time to show on your radio and laws of power breakdown, robert greene’s, new, york, times, bestseller, 48 laws of power. Now this book contains in it 48 laws that robert greene has observed throughout history, world history, it’s a massive book and he breaks down all the moves. All of the laws, all the systems, all deceitful, making moves.

All the good moves, all the moves, the 48 laws of power that people have used to gain power. Now we live in a world where a lot of people are willing to gain you’re willing to do whatever it takes to become successful, regardless of whether it conflicts with their moral compass, regardless of whether it it it disagrees, their values and their faith. I would not do that. I would advise you to do that. What I’m doing is I’m trying to vaccinate you as the listener against any of the negative ways in which these best business coach laws can be used against you. So one of the walls were talking right. Now. Is a law number 29 which is plan all the way to the end in eric? Will you reread this excerpt from 48 laws of power tuning into? They can hear this excerpt from 48 laws of power? Absolutely the ending is everything plan all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, obstacles and twist of fortune that might reverse your hard work and give the glory to others by planning to the end. You will not be overwhelmed by circumstances, and you will know when to stop gently guide fortune and help determine the future by thinking far ahead can help you easily. Okay, we go to all contracts. You got to set up a 5149 percent split. There’s got to be one person in control. It has to be that way. You can’t go into a business with a 50/50 split if you do that, it’s going to blow up eventually when it does it’s weird, if it if it doesn’t blow up worst case scenario, you have constant gridlock, because your partner’s won’t agree with you on everything and now you’re unable to make decisions, you’re, always slow down by indecision.

So I think hard about the articles of dissolution when you do break up or when you sell the company or in your run together of glory. How are you going to break it up? So few people do this. They think about. All I can think about is the new idea of exit strategy. New idea did the new, exciting and thinking about your business apart or breaking up is not exciting, but the fact is the best business coach publication forbes says 8 out of 10 businesses fail in case I’m, not saying that’s going to happen to you, but it is a possibility. So you have to plan for that effect. When building a company and training people always have two of every position. Oh yeah planning all the way, all the way to the end lot 29 48 laws of parents were talking about, but when you’re training people you’re bringing people on your team shop, why do you have to have two of everything you have to have her done within your business? A so that if somebody does get sick or need to take a vacation, you’ve got that option and be you won’t be held hostage by any of your employees. If there’s not just one super important person that knows how to do everything yet with my company I just like to get one or graphic designer and I’ll just get one coat of cuz. That’s all I need cuz. They are each other than high schools have before high school did my homies and when we introduced money into the into our lives and our relationship and never gets different, what’s good for you guys, that’s it! That’s a no people think that you want to take me to worship together a long time. You introduce some money, though into it. It stinks change every time, every single time, next move batting cleanup number for when hiring a contractor, always interview at least three options by the rule of 3, because you want to get your best price rite. You want to see make sure if you just get one price. Somebody may be really crazy tired, but you got to think about this too. They might be really crazy on the low end and you don’t want to hire that low in contractor that miss something in your bed cuz. Then you set your expectations in your way off the mark, so you got to get three. Options are in the process of painting the fence portion of the camp clark and chicken palace wall, and we got three bids from different contractors and it’s crazy.

The pricing differences one guy $7 I’ll, do it for 7 to see high price I quoted me, a price that I thought was reasonable and then one guy i, don’t know he’s going to survive. V8 we actually hired the guy, and so I would just say, is adam super important to plan all the way to the end. You have kind of a conspiracy theory about life when hiring people who do group interviews. Why jeff? Why do group interviews? Why not just sell out to the one resume? You found that you like can I add to that just a little bit? Yes, can you kick it? Yes, you can do weekly group interviews interviews every week so that the first part of that is it’s a group interview, so you’re saving your time, you’re interviewing everybody and every candidate for every job that you have within one hour of the week. Instead of setting up multiple meeting times and that’s, why do it weekly? Because that one week you need somebody going to be really hard to find a tape player that week from the former ceo and one of the original founding best business coach partners of intel, and he said only the paranoid survive. You’ve got to have that mindset, youtube paranoia I’m telling you! Otherwise, if you go into your business, your new business idea and you’re, not planning all the way to that was a conspiracy theory mindset about how all the bad things that can happen. You’re going to lose your going to load this going to happen, you got to think more strategically, which requires time she got to block out meta time every single day that hour of power to tax out your life. Now. Here’s an example example I want to give you in trouble like for you to write this down for all of us, there’s out there. Okay. So if you want to buy an elephant, the room franchise step, one is, you would have to get what is called an fdd elite. You would have to request a franchise disclosure document. This is a document that is regulated by the federal government and it is a disclosure of the 23 items related to a franchiser able to see transparently everything about the company turnkey howey market, how we acquire customers how much profit we make how much profit we don’t make. You get an f t da franchise, disclosure document step2. You have to shadow the actual operation of a store step to you. If there’s shadow the actual operation store, so you have to go and see a store being rain gets the hour. Call center works right. You get to see how our our our day-to-day operations work right, but before you get to shadow the store you can put that, in parentheses on the show notes there, you have to sign an nda, a non-disclosure agreement, and you know why you have to sign a nondisclosure agreement. You have to sign what, because we have plan all the way to the end, and we know that our competition is always scamming and scheming and looking for the secret moves that we used to make it work and so step one because I have a friend a franchise, disclosure document. In your hand, it did, you know, shut.

The federal government requires that you have the franchise disclosure document in your hand, for 14 days before you’re allowed to buy a franchise. Did you know that I did not know that and I’ll tell you why? Cuz we have to plan all the way to the end. The people that are making the franchise laws have thought about this and I thought about the scammers out there to make claims that are unsubstantiated, and therefore you have to have a franchise disclosure document in your hands. For 14 days before you can buy a franchise, then we have to give you a non-disclosure agreement. Do things right, then the step2 he’s got a shadow, the actual operation of a store, step 3. We do an all-day discovery day with you. That means the entire day you’re able to ask any questions that you have. While we follow you through what we lead, you down the path of running your own best business coach type business, and we talk about the details. We talked about how much working capital you’re going to need right. We talked about that. We talked about hiring people, we talked about firing people, we talked about unemployment law. We talked about all of the things, depending on how many dollars you need per week to market the company. How long it’s going to take you before you stop losing money. We get into all the details because we plan all the way to the end. I love wall, 29 I wish that more people would apply lot, 29 their lives and business, because, if not you’re just going to create chaos, every new idea, you have a business concept that you create is going to create chaos and your life and the lives of others. If you do not plan all the way to the end and one tomorrow, so we’re going to break down law 30 through 4 create it’s going to be hard to fit them all, and we’re fixing to be laws of power laws. 30 through 48 on tomorrow show buy in clay clark of a business coach.
