Grow Business Online – How To Grow Your Online Business

Grow Business Online

How to grow business online is the subject of Dean’s message today…

“So I ended up in a concert in Birmingham, England last night, with Robyn my fiancee. Just before that I tried to eat a 10 pound food challenge, which didn’t necessarily end so well!

But being at the concert made me think about something in business, and I was reminded of this recently when I was flying from UK to the US in business class.

And I want to share this lesson with you, because this is a way that you can definitely, definitely add a significant percentage of profits to your business. In some cases…

Double, Triple Or More, The Revenue You’re Making

…every single year online.

Good morning welcome to a bit of a different setting for The Drive. I’m actually here in the office. Not gonna lie. Reason being, I forgot the camera last night when I left. So I didn’t have it to do The Drive when I left this morning. So…

Welcome To Internet Profits HQ

You can take a look behind me, and see what’s going on behind us here.

Dean Holland at Internet Profits HQ

So yeah last night, yesterday, I left the office around about 3:00 in the afternoon because my mom had actually purchased me and my fiance some tickets for my birthday (which was back in September) to go to a concert in Birmingham, England.

Actually took us about three hours to get there, because the traffic was really bad. So when we arrived, we hadn’t had any dinner. And so before the concert began, we decided to go for some food. We went to a smokehouse which did meats like, y’know, ribs and brisket and pastrami and loads of different meats.

We get in there and – I love food! If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you’ll know that…

I Love Food!

Dean Holland - The Drive Episode 113And there was this “plate”. There was this meal on the menu, and it was basically called a mixed grill smoked plate. And it had all this food on it, and I’m like, “That sounds good! I get to try different things.”

And so Robyn my fiancee, she placed her order. She was having, like, a burger, and I’d ordered this big plate, this mixed grill. And the waitress actually turned to me at the time. She was like…

“You Guys Haven’t Been Here Before, Have You?”

I was like, “No, first time.” She says, “Well, the burger you’ve ordered is huge. Like it literally comes like this…” (Stacked high.) And Robyn was like, “Oh well, I’ll still have the burger anyway, even if I can’t eat it. I want the burger.”

Then the waitress is like, “And your mixed grill that you’ve ordered, that’s a plate for three to four people. It is like nine pounds of food.” So I’m like, “Well, I’m kind of in a rush here. I’ve already chosen. I haven’t got time to go back through the menu. I’ve got a concert to get to. I’ll just stick with what I’ve got. I can eat what I can, and we’ll do that.”

The waitress said, “Well it’s gonna be a challenge!”…

How To Build A Successful Business – Karate Kid Wax-On, Wax-Off Lesson

How To Build A Successful Business

Lesson on how to build a successful business from Mr Miyagi in The Karate Kid. Waxing the car, painting the fence, sanding the deck. It’s all like building a successful business really.

Good morning! Welcome to The Drive. What a strange morning.

How To Build A Successful Business - Dean Holland

I’m looking in front of me and I can see the moon. It’s like a faint moon in the sky right there. And behind me is the Sun, what a strange thing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

Anyway… It is the start of another week. We’re on the way to Internet Profits HQ, here in the UK.

This weekend I happened to turn on the TV (I don’t watch a lot of television, to be honest). Sat down, turned on the TV, was just about to eat some food… and…

One Of My Favorite Movies Of All Time

…(in the top 10 at least, I’m sure) was on. And it was The Karate Kid.

The original Karate Kid, right? There should be only one Karate Kid… with Daniel LaRusso and Mr Miyagi. And, y’know, it made me think of, when you’re doing new things, like, in your business.

When You’re First Starting Your Business…

…for example, and you’re having to learn all this new stuff that you’ve never heard of before. And it’s like, “What on earth is it?” or “How des it all connect?” “How does this, work with with this – how does it do it?”

At all different stages of your business, you’re going to go through those moments where you, like, y’know, “Ah, I just bought Infusionsoft, a CRM system – how does all this work?” And it’s all…

New Information Going Into Your Head

How To Build A Successful Business - The Drive E110And it was kind of like when when The Karate Kid was was being taught by Mr Miyagi. He made a deal with him – he’s like, “I will train you to do karate to defend yourself, for the the tournament, and your part of the deal is… you will listen to everything I say, and you’ll do what I say, without any questions.”

He’s like, “Yes”, Daniel-san agrees. And then he turns up the next morning to start his karate lessons, what Daniel-san thinks is obviously going to be how to throw a punch, how to kick, how to a block, how to defend.

And the first thing Mr Miyagi has him do is wax the car, and he teaches the famous thing,

“Wax On, Wax Off”

And he’s like, “Okay”. Just thinks it’s a chore he’s getting him to do, in exchange for payment of training him.

Then the next day, he teaches him to sand the deck.He’s like, “Okay this is like, sand, sand.” (circular motion of hands). Next day turns up, “Paint the fence.” Next time turns up, “Paint the house (side to side)”

And he gets angry at this point, right? He’s like really frustrated. Mr Miyagi comes back from fishing and he says, “What the hell’s going on? You’ve been fishing all day!

“You Said You’d Teach Me Karate – You Ain’t Taught Me Nothing!”

He’s really peed off about it, “You’ve taught me nothing, all you’ve had me do is be your slave for the last week.”

How To Build A Successful Business - Internet ProfitsAnd then he’s about to storm off and Mr Miyagi calls him back and throws a punch at him.

And y’know, he’s like Wax On. Boom! Blocks the punch! Right? You probably know the story.

But the moral of it ultimately is…

Do Your Actions Match What You Say You Desire?

Do Your Actions Match Your Message

There’s no doubt some people are going to disagree with me on this one. Some people are not going to like the message.

But as I’ve said in the past, those that usually don’t like these things… they need to hear it for the most.

Good morning! Welcome to another episode of The Drive. What a different start to the day it’s been. I am late to the office today. Had a punctured tire and basically had to go and get it replaced, but I was in there forever!

Anyway the message of today… what I want to talk about today is…

Do Your Actions Match Your Message?

Let me tell you what I’m talking about here. Are the actions that you’re taking helping you or hindering you? Helping you or harming you? Do your actions match what you say you desire?

There’s a lot of people in the world that say they want to get in better shape. Yet they won’t go to the gym, or they won’t work out.

There are a lot of people that aren’t happy with their weight, yet they keep piling junk food into their body.

There are a lot of people that want to excel in business. Yet they stay in bed late, they sit watching TV at night instead of putting those precious hours into their business, right?

A lot of people are stuck in situations. And instead of doing what it takes, they don’t change their their routines, they don’t change themselves.

And what I know to be true in life ultimately… and you should hopefully agree with this if you really think about it… Changing patterns, changing our behaviours…

It Can Literally Be Done Instantly

…like, immediately, we can change.

This kind of goes against what we believe to be true. Because if we change, or if we accept that we can change immediately… it’s almost like saying well that problem doesn’t exist.

But really… here’s what I want you to think about….

How To Achieve Your Business Goals And Objectives In The Next 60 Days

Business Goals

Discover how to set and reach your business goals and objectives over the next 60 days, using the following principles and tips from Dean Holland:

“Today I’m gonna talk about how to absolutely annihilate your business goals and your results in the next 60 days… so let’s do this!

How to Achieve Business Goals and ObjectivesGood morning welcome to this edition of The Drive. I want to just quickly give a few tips on how to accomplish more in the next 60 days, than you possibly have in the previous 60 days / hundred days / or months previously before now.

This is the process that we actually went through last week.

I decided to set what I called the obnoxiously ambitious business goal for the next 60 days.

I Set This Huge, Huge Business Goal…

A target above what we’ve achieved in that same period of time, ever in the history of the company.

So I set this really high business goal. And when you set yourself an income target, especially one that’s significant, then it forces you to think differently.

Because a lot of us are… what a friend and my first mentor used to say to me, is…

The Concept Of Being A “Busy Fool”

How To Set And Reach Your Business GoalsIt’s like you can be busy… but in the wrong areas. And you can feel like you’re busy, but really you’re being a busy fool because you’re not focused on the right things.

It comes back to the 80/20 principle, right? The 80/20 principle dictates that 80% of your results will come from 20 percent of your actions. And so this is what setting this huge target has done for me.

It Makes You… It Forces You…

…to figure out what those 20 percent of your activities are. Where are the large amount of your results coming from. And what is it that you’re doing in those 20 percent, that produces the 80 percent of the results.

Because if you can actually shift to spending 80 percent of your time on the 20 percent that produces the results, then you’re naturally going to shift your focus onto income-producing activities, results orientated activities.

And therefore you’re going to enable yourself to produce the results in a shorter period of time, therefore enabling you to get bigger results over the next 60 days. So…

Here’s What You Need To Sit Down And Do…

First of all…

Habits Of Successful People: 3 Traits Of Effective Online Entrepreneurs

Habits Of Successful People

There’s a lot of online information, books etc. about the habits of successful people, the habits of highly effective people, and so on.

Here are three of the most important traits of millionaires and online entrepreneurs, summarised by Dean Holland.

Traits Of EntrepreneursI feel amazing! Just come out of the gym. Done an hour in there. It is still dark and it’s only just past 7 a.m. Now I’m on the way to the office…

But in today’s episode of The Drive, I’m gonna share with you…

Three Traits, Three Qualities Of Multi-Millionaire Online Entrepreneurs

So let’s do this… Good morning! Welcome to The Drive. Dean here on the way to Internet Profits headquarters. And today I want to share with you three traits that are commonly found within online entrepreneurs and multi millionaires.

Aside from my company doing very well now, I am very lucky to know, and be mentored by, and be friends with, many multi millionaire online entrepreneurs. Some even on their way to billion dollar valuations.

And I notice some very common traits amongst these people. And so I want to share them with you, because if you can…

Instil These Habits Of Successful People Into Your Life

Then obviously when you model the traits of highly successful people, there is a high probability that these traits are contributors towards their success and the things they achieve in life.

So, trait number one. Some of these you’re gonna have heard of, and some you’ll think are probably not so obvious. But trait number one is to read books.

Habits Of Successful People - The Drive E101Now a lot of people don’t seem to like reading. And to be honest, I used to be the same. That is until I got passionate about my subject, until I really, truly found my passion.

And now… Why do I go to work so early? Why do I wake up at 5:00 a.m. now? Because I’m passionate to get here, and do some of what I want to do, y’know.

I go to bed now between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. to read for 30 minutes. Why? Because I’m passionate. I’m looking forward to getting into bed. And knowledge ultimately is power.

Was It Warren Buffett Who Said, “The More You Learn, The More You Earn”?

But I want to just put a bit of a caveat on this…

How To Accomplish Goals And Overcome Resistance

How To Accomplish Goals

A useful and practical tip today on how to accomplish goals and overcome resistance when approaching any business task, or indeed anything you know you’ve got to get done, but are procrastinating about.

I want to share with you how you can literally overcome and accomplish anything you want, both in your business and in your personal life.

How To Accomplish Goals

Good morning! It is a bright and beautiful morning here in sunny England, which I can’t say too many times. I hope you’re well, hope you’re ready for an awesome day today.

So what am I talking about then, when I say, “Here’s how you can literally accomplish and achieve anything and everything that you want in your life.”

Whether that’s a business accomplishment that you’re looking to achieve, or something you’re looking to get done.

Whether that’s a task or a particular thing that you need to get done in your personal life. Or whether it’s a fitness goal – whether it’s starting to work out or, y’know, shed some pounds or get in better shape, or whether it’s to have a better diet.

First Of All, Let Me Just Address Something…

It is built into our genetics almost, it is built into our society as humans for us to believe that – change takes a long time.

Okay, think about it. We all believe that to change takes a lot of work, and a lot of time, right? It’s just kind of ingrained in us, built into us.

But the truth is, if you think about it, and I mean really think about it – it’s not change that takes a long time. It is making the decision to change that takes a long time.

The First Person That Got Me Thinking About This, Was Tony Robbins

And it’s absolutely true. Once you open your mind to this, and you’re open to the possibilities of it, if you think about it, what takes a long time? Change actually happens in…

Feeling Overwhelmed In Business Or Life? Try This Mind Cleansing Technique

Feeling Overwhelmed

Quick question… Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed, lost, or confused in your business? Like you’ve got so many tasks, or so much to do, and you just don’t know where to start. And sometimes it can just paralyze you, and make you not do anything, or not enough?

Well that’s what I want to solve for you with an awesome and effective, yet very simple technique. And I’m now going to share it with you.

You’re gonna love this simple technique I’ve got to share with you today. Especially if you do find that sometimes you’re…

Feeling Overwhelmed With Everything?

Like there’s so much to do in your business and also in your life. And you’re juggling so many different things, that you get almost, y’know, overloaded with it all and end up feeling overwhelmed.

So I want to share this simple tactic with you. And it involves going back to simple, traditional pen and paper strategy.

Now of course, you can do this on your computer if you really prefer to use the technology. But I like going back to pen and paper, notepad and pen, something like that for this. And sometimes a large piece of paper as well, depending on how much I’ve really got going on up here.

Here’s How It Works…

Firstly, you’re going to take your piece of paper, or whatever it is that you’re using. And you’re going to divide it into two.

So draw a line down the center and divide your piece of paper up into two halves. On the left hand side of the paper at the top, I want you to write in big, bold letters… And underline it… The word, “Everything”, okay?

In this side, this is where you do what I refer to often as a “brain dump”.

Often when we’re overloaded with things, it can be so overwhelming and like overloading in our brain, that we struggle to think. It’s like…

“Oh My Gosh, Where Do I Begin?”

…y’know. And you’re feeling that way.

So on the left hand side, where you wrote “Everything” at the top, I want you to…
