People over profits

People over profits

My friend Colin Wayne appeared on Fox News the other day to discuss Biden’s proposed economic plan. He made some astute points, which I agree with.

First, on paper, Biden’s plan sounds great. BUT, how does he expect to implement it? There’s a lot of focus on the result, but no mention made of the steps he’ll take to achieve it.

Second, we need to support American businesses. And we need to support the American people over profit. There are far too many examples of foreign knockoffs emerging from the overseas factories of American companies. That hurts both our businesses, who end up losing money, and our people, who lose jobs.

Finally, Biden’s plan doesn’t seem that different to what Trump has been advocating for all along. 

The bottom line is, we need to bring jobs back to America. We can do that by cutting ties with foreign factories.

Talking about “going viral” right now is a tone deaf move.

Same for exploiting and exacerbating shortages, like that guy who has 20,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, he was selling at $20 a bottle.

I’m not worried about getting Covid-19– probably a good chance I have it from all my travel.

And if I come down with it, my friend who owns a chain of emergency clinics told me that I’d have flu symptoms for a week or two, worst case.

Time to stay away from crowds, not for your sake, but so that you don’t infect others who are elderly or have compromised immune systems.

With 10 conferences I was going to speak at canceled, the next two months is about ramping up online course creation in our studio.

Want to grow your digital agency, hire virtual teams, teach what you know, publish that book you’ve always wanted, or build your personal brand?

Who wants to go live with me?

$68 for a jug of bleach at Walmart?

That’s ripping off desperate people– and it makes me mad.

// At the end of this post, I’ll tell you what really pisses me off.

But first– two minutes ago, a company with a stockpile of overpriced hand sanitizer messaged me, too.

I get that it’s “just capitalism”, but now is not the time to take advantage of kicking people while they’re down.

Many friends of mine work in restaurants, retail, and professional services– which require physically seeing customers.

But with the quarantines and people being afraid to meet, they are effectively unemployed.

70% of American are living paycheck to paycheck– meaning that most of us can’t afford to pay rent at the end of this month.

Now is a great time to start a business, build your personal brand, learn how to do client consultations online, connect with customers, and teach what you know.

When the economy comes back after 4-6 months, it always does– it will be stronger than ever.

So anyone who is in digital marketing should drop the price of their $2,000 courses to free for the next 30 days– even though they can profit on selling their version of overpriced hand sanitizer.

Ryan Deiss, CEO of DigitalMarketer made such a generous announcement this morning.

And I’m inspired to do the same.

If you are wanting to start your digital marketing agency…

Or as a local service business want to use this time to strengthen your marketing…

Or you just want to become a pro at Facebook ads…

Send an email to with LOVE IS KIND as the subject line– and tell me what your goal is.

During a time of crisis, you get a window into who people really are

A little while ago a friend criticized me for not ramping up my passive income.

After all, there are so many people making millions from home selling online courses.

Yet here I am connecting with people individually and helping them– working 14 hours a day.

And putting all our courses out there for free for the next 20 days– no credit card and no upsell, just free.

During a time of crisis, you get a window into who people really are.

And the good people will remember you– buying from you when this whole thing is over.

The more people I’m able to help now, while documenting what’s working step-by-step, the more I’m able to build my courses and programs.

Ironically, the best way to make passive income is to first start with things that don’t scale.

If you skip straight to selling something you’ve done successfully done repeatedly, you might make a quick buck, but screw over a lot of people.

Pay close attention to how people behave right now– to decide who you will do business with after this thing is over.

I get a LOT of people asking me to run their Facebook ad campaigns

I want to help everyone, but there are not enough hours in the day to produce training, mentor team members, spend proper time with clients, and have a personal life.

You’ve probably seen all the travel I’m doing– meeting clients, team members, and partners all over the world!

So if you’re a social media agency or aspiring to become one, I’d like to send leads your way.

And I’d like to make sure you’re successful and can deliver ROI, equipped with our training.

If you get certified at (for young adults starting an agency) or (working professionals), I will personally refer you clients and help you become successful.

I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t– I have the scars to prove it.

So now it’s time to help everyone else grow their agency!
