Episode 029 – How to Get Out of the Rat Race by Learning from Chris Miles

Are you looking at getting out of the rat race?  Are you looking at ways in which you can free up cash flow amounting to some $34,000 a year?    

In Episode 029, Jack has invited Chris Miles who is the "Cash Flow Expert" and “Anti-Financial Advisor” to share his journey from getting out of the rat race to achieving financial freedom at the age of 28, and then going back to the rat race due to the Global Financial Crisis and how he made a comeback to the road of financial freedom and now becomes a leading authority teaching entrepreneurs and professionals how to quickly free up and create cash flow spending time doing what they love most!  

Chris has a high reputation with his company, Money Ripples getting his clients fast, life-altering financial results. In fact, his personal clients have increased their cash flow by over $100 Million in the last 8 years!

Become a business consultant In the real world and a school drop-out

"I figured out if I'm going to become a business consultant, I shouldn't just have book smart, I should also have real life experience. And so I ended up dropping out of college with one class to go and I thought I'll just take a one year break and I'll start a business."

How did Chris become financial free in 2006 and 2007?

"A friend who was a millionaire asked me "Do you really like doing mortgages?" I said, "Well, not really. I love teaching it. I love helping them get the results, but I hate the paperwork and I hate the one that they call like every day leading up to it."  And he said, well, why don't you hire that out?   So I found a guy who had split it 50/50 with me. I would just spend a half hour to an hour to the client and then next month later I get a check for like a thousand bucks or so. I thought, well, that's a pretty good wage per hour, where else could I do that? And so I started creating passive streams income to where I was making like $4,000 or $5,000 a month, working in about three or four hours a week, with different companies. And so in 2007, I came out of retirement."

It's not about focusing on the money part
"I realised that the biggest key to getting out of anything  is I stopped asking how do I make more money, but I started asking, how can I create value? How can I serve more people? What can I do to create more value for more people? Because dollars follow value you create, especially value that others want in their life. If you realize that everything you do is about service, everything you do is about getting people what they want, the money's easy. The money's just exchanging you saying, here, I'll give you this piece of paper or this check. I'll give you this money."

What's the best strategy to get out of the rat race?

"People can look for the right time and the right time usually is like figuring out like how do we make sure that you're financially prepared to make the leap. I made a leap back early on was a financial advisor. I made the leap a little bit too quickly because I didn't want to be at my job any longer. I was actually in a world of hurt financially for a few months, was trying to get stuff together and I had to go find another job to get myself going again. There's a right time and place to do it and that's why I teach people to get out of the rat race. You got to have the right timing to do it and the right circumstances.  When it's right, it's easy to make that leap."

Chris' Most Favourite Quote
"Dollars follow value! If you want more money, don't ask, "How do I make more money?" Ask, "How can I create more value for more people?""

Easily Keep Yourself Organized With A Calendar

Your time is valuable. Other people need to respect your time, and you need to figure out when you are busy and when you are available. That way you can schedule meetings, webinars, teleseminars, or coaching calls weeks or months in advance and still have a time for yourself for vacations, days off, and for working on your business.

That is why I use a Gmail calendar and a Smart-Phone to keep track of all those things. First of all, I recommend you get a Gmail account, which is hosted by Google because in Gmail there is an extra tab where you can have your very own calendar. It displays the day, the week, the month.. You can schedule blocks of time according to when you are going to be focusing just on one particular task, having a meeting, and so on. What is really good about this is you can sync it to most Smart-Phones. That way you can set up a meeting with your phone and then check it later on your computer or in fact, any computer in the world and vice versa. You can set the meeting on your computer, and it will appear on your phone as well.

The really cool feature about this is you can give others access to this Gmail calendar. It means that you can share the calendar with your family or your business partners, so they will automatically know when you are busy and when you are free, and you can have different security levels. For example, your business partners will see that you have family time blocked out, but they might not necessarily see what you have it blocked out for – only that you are busy. It means that if your business partners want to have a meeting at a certain time of day, they just schedule it and if your family wants certain family time with you or to go on a trip, they can just schedule that on a calendar as well. And when they schedule it, it will show up on your phone and on your computer. And, if you schedule it – whether it is on your computer or on your phone, it will appear on their calendar’s as well.

That is how you easily organize yourself with a calendar to keep track of your tasks, and meetings by using Gmail calendar by syncing it with your phone and by sharing it with your business partners.

How Far Ahead Should I Plan And Schedule My Life And Business,

Any tool you have to improve your life can also be misused, including things like calenders, day-planners, and task-lists. That is why you don’t want to spend too much time planning the rest of your life out. Just think about monthly products, weekly promotions, and daily tasks.

This month, what product are you going to be launching, What is going to be your big launch, This week, what are you going to be promoting to your subscribers, Is it going to be the same product you are launching, Are you going to be relaunching an old product while you create this new one, Or, are you going to be promoting someone else,
Finally, what tasks are you going to be completing everyday to make those promotions happen, Are you going to be contacting potential new affiliate partners, making a new blog post, writing and scheduling emails, What daily tasks are you going to be completing to make you weekly promotions possible to have a different monthly product come out to your subscribers,

To make sure that you focus on this one month or this one week – I want you to theme your months and your weeks. This is easy, if you are launching a new product called “Self Improvement Guide”, then this is Self Improvement Guide month. If this week you are promoting a product called “The List Building Accelerator”, then this is List Building Accelerator week. Make sure that all the tasks you complete this week are related to that and most of the promotions you make this month are related to that exact product launch.

You do need a clear plan, you do need to know what direction you are headed in, but over-planning means you won’t get there. Consider if you were traveling from one end of the country to another, you do need to know what highways to take and what direction you are going. But, you might not need to keep track of exactly where you will stop for gas along the way, exactly what you will eat for every meal on the way, and exactly which lanes you will change to along the way.

Episode 028 – How To Research Your Market for Business Startup Tapping on David Selley’s Experience

As a startup owner, do you have what it takes to make your business venture a successful one?  Do you understand the importance of market research and 2 ways in which you can avoid suffering huge financial losses before you launch your new products or services.  

In Episode 028, Jack has invited David Selley, the Founder and CEO of International Entrepreneurs Association to share the key factors to help you become a successful entrepreneur and explain why doing market research is mission critical. David also shared two ways that help you avoid suffering huge financial losses before launching your products to the market.

Mission of the International Entrepreneurs Assoication

"I'm of the belief that you cannot teach something you haven't done.  We have a disruptive business model as much as that no one has ever done what we're doing and it will allow people that are either trapped and they can't get out of their job because they don't have the money to go to college to learn. Many times from a professor who has not done what he's teaching. There lies the crux of the core, basically the fulcrum of our program and that is to teach people at the grassroots level, as you said, via a network of executive directors in each country."

How to describe the road of entrepreneurship?

"If you're going to be an entrepreneur or you want to be an entrepreneur, you must be prepared for some rocky roads because as I always say from stage (and I'm in the speaking business as well),  the road of entrepreneurship is paid with loneliness, be prepared for criticism, even from family members that that's a bittersweet pill because they want you to be successful, but if you've tried and tried and tried again, you must be prepared to fail and learn from those mistakes and then move forward."

Should you quit your job before venturing to business?

"If you have a job, honour your responsibility with a job to people that are paying you to get the job done. Don't be sitting here daydreaming all day about your project or whatever it is that you've invented or whatever it is that's going on from an entrepreneurial standpoint, but you can plan with proper planning ... You don't want to sacrifice your job while you're doing that and don't quit early. I've done that a number of times and it's not a smart thing to do because if you have responsibilities, most people do, especially if you have a family, you owe it to that provide for your family first and knowing or at least whoever your income and your cash flow is coming from. The entrepreneurial efforts should definitely be secondary until you have reason to believe that the cashflow is predictable."

Power of Positive Thinking

"I had that dream when I was dating my wife, but that would be kind of a hurry However, dream is absolutely almost unmeasurable because it's the driving force that will get you out of bed to make calls at 5:00am and it's the thing that drives you. And once you've got that powerfully in place and you reinforce it daily with whatever routine you have to reinforce your dream because predictably a sudden loser is going to come along and tell you, "that's stupid, you know. Forget it, you know." You must reinforce your strength and your beliefs by a daily routine of some kind where you actually come to grips with it. And I read my goals and dreams every day. I got quite a list."

David's No.1 Quote
"What you do daily will determine what you become permanently!"

Use The Six Second Rule To Make Better Decisions And Get More Done

When was the last time you spent an hour or two just thinking about what you are going to do that evening, or where you are going to go for dinner, Think about how much time that wasted and think about all the different possibilities you thought of only to go back to your original decision. That is why the first choice, or the first decision you make is usually correct. Most decisions you make can be easily reversed. A good example is deciding on a design or theme for your blog. It takes one click to change the theme of your blog, especially if you are using a free theme. That means that decision isn’t very important.

Set up your blog, worry about the blog content, comments and getting traffic and set whatever theme you see immediately. You can always change it later.

The other thing you remember about the six second rule is if the right decision is that important then it will usually present itself. That means that if you look at the dinner menu, and you see something that jumps out at you. You know that is what you should have for dinner. If you are trying to decide on what niche to theme your website about, and you keep seeing that people ask you the same questions or you enjoy that certain subject. Then, that is the niche you should go after.

It is all important because most decisions don’t really make a difference in your long term life – what you will have for dinner, what will be your new parts domain name, what article you will write about today. Just think about it and do it, and get used to trusting your instincts and taking that first decision into action.
