Richard Thompson | "For Me to Grow As a Human Being, I'm NOW Going to Pick up a NEW Story!" | Ep. #85

Ep. 85
โ€ข

I'm joined by Richard Thompson, a former Navy SEAL and founder of You vs. You Coaching. If you've ever struggled with confidence, cowering behind an invisible yet pervasive self-created shield of doubt, fear, and failure... this episode is for you. Today's guest shares how his experiences with the teams enabled him to develop an unbreakable mindset. Richard also drops a personal anecdote during his SEAL days about a timid fellow trainee, and what happened to him by succumbing to fear.


In our session, Richard and I discuss how to become more self-assured and conquer life instead of being a victim of circumstances. Enjoy!

  • 101. Turn Content into a Cash-Producing Machine in 2024

    07:51
    For most businesses, marketing is an expense.ย But what if it could be a revenue-producing machine for your business?In this episode, I offer a framework for how to create a profitable marketing organization. We've entered an era where content ought to 'house' marketing as a sub-function - not the other way around. Your whole business can and should be built on content!I also explain the four ways marketing can add value to the bottom line. Most people assume there's only one way - to drive new client acquisition. But with an expanded view of the strategic role content can play, and a commitment to it, you can literally add multiple new streams of cashflow, changing your business altogether.========================๐Ÿ“’ Resources========================๐Ÿ“– ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜-๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—š๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—˜๐—ฅ - ๐—•๐—ข๐—ข๐—ž (๐— ๐—”๐—ฅ๐—–๐—› ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ)๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/contentcapitalistbook/๐ŸŽ“ ๐—–๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—˜ & ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฉ๐—œ๐—–๐—˜๐—ฆ๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/services/๐Ÿ“Œ ๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—•๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—•๐—˜ - ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—š๐Ÿ”— http://www.michaelbecker.org๐ŸŒ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ก๐—˜๐—–๐—ง - ๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—–๐—œ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐Ÿ”— https://www.instagram.com/officialmbecker๐Ÿ”— https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvbfJXLaqhJxQSPSYdfH-zQโ—‰ Thanks for listening!

  • 99. How to Become a Pressing NEED for Prospects (Psychology of Action-Taking)

    12:20
    In this video, I'm breaking down the 4-part framework that all humans undergo before we make a decision to act.The purpose of marketing is to facilitate the flow of an audience from indifference to enrollment to devotion... which leads to a stark recognition of a dire need which can't be ignored, thus requiring immediate action.Your job is to break through the periphery, go beyond a preference, become a priority, and position your product as the only solution to an imminent, pressing need.You do this by telling your story, educating your audience about the issue or opportunity at hand, working with them one-on-one to help unlock a vision for change, and then, once that need is established, you hand over the keys to make it all possible.Watch full video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/5aGCERcrCFs========================๐Ÿ“’ Resources========================๐Ÿ“– ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜-๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—š๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—˜๐—ฅ - ๐—•๐—ข๐—ข๐—ž (๐— ๐—”๐—ฅ๐—–๐—› ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ)๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/contentcapitalistbook/๐ŸŽ“ ๐—–๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—˜ & ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฉ๐—œ๐—–๐—˜๐—ฆ๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/services/๐Ÿ“Œ ๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—•๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—•๐—˜ - ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—š๐Ÿ”— http://www.michaelbecker.org๐ŸŒ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ก๐—˜๐—–๐—ง - ๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—–๐—œ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐Ÿ”— https://www.instagram.com/officialmbecker๐Ÿ”— https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvbfJXLaqhJxQSPSYdfH-zQโ—‰ Thanks for listening!

  • 96. DM Beasts: Attention Arbitrage Hacks to Trigger Responses in DM (3-Part Mock Cadence)

    06:57
    In this episode, I'm sharing an exclusive snippet from my new mastercourse. I break down a mock 3-step outreach cadence that you can insert into your prospecting work right away.With DMs and inMails today, you've got to get to the value for the recipient up-front (first line) - no fluff, no BS, no wasted space. Abbreviations, brevity and even slang are your friend. As I share in the episode, one trending strategy being used lately is short messages designed to sort of "erk" the prospect in order to trigger a response and open dialogue (e.g., "Michael? Are you there??"). There are a few others we walk through.The thing with DM techniques is that they're changing on a quarterly basis; new attention arbitrage hacks are being surfaced monthly as the market becomes desensitized to hooks that were working just a few months ago. So you've got to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to prospecting and selling-via-chat. #leadgen #prospecting #sellviachat #dm #dmbeasts========================๐Ÿ“’ Resources========================๐Ÿ“– ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜-๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—š๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—˜๐—ฅ - ๐—•๐—ข๐—ข๐—ž (๐— ๐—”๐—ฅ๐—–๐—› ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ)๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/contentcapitalistbook/๐ŸŽ“ ๐—–๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—˜ & ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฉ๐—œ๐—–๐—˜๐—ฆ๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/services/๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐—๐—ข๐—œ๐—ก - ๐—™๐—• ๐—š๐—ฅ๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฃ ๐—™๐—ข๐—ฅ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ง๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ก๐—˜๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐Ÿ”— https://www.facebook.com/groups/contententrepreneurs๐Ÿ“Œ ๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—•๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—•๐—˜ - ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—š๐Ÿ”— http://www.michaelbecker.org๐ŸŒ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ก๐—˜๐—–๐—ง - ๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—–๐—œ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐Ÿ”— https://www.instagram.com/officialmbecker๐Ÿ”— https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvbfJXLaqhJxQSPSYdfH-zQโ—‰ Thanks for listening!

  • 95. The Future of Marketing is Content Communities

    08:12
    In this episode, I explain why members-only content communities are the future of marketing... and how you can take advantage of this shift.The โ€œnew" era of marketing isnโ€™t aimed at convincing anyone of anything, but rather creating content communitiesโ€”and companiesโ€”that speak for themselves and sell on your behalf. With content communities, in the subtle energy balance, the company or creator takes the power position.Gated VIP groups are so powerful because theyโ€™re owned, reliable, economical mass nurturing ecosystems. Groups are an emerging and effective strategy to drive demand from people who will inevitably turn into more trusting prospects (compared to cold outreach) in due time. While you might be able to attain far more impressions, open up more conversations, and even set up discovery calls using setters or ads on social, the thing youโ€™re solving for with a group is not necessarily how many meetings get set but rather the level of trust and degree of willingness that people who apply will bring to the table simply by virtue of being nurtured more intently. #contentcommunities #communitymarketing #creatoreconomy========================๐Ÿ“’ Resources========================๐Ÿ“– ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜-๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—š๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง๐—˜๐—ฅ - ๐—•๐—ข๐—ข๐—ž (๐— ๐—”๐—ฅ๐—–๐—› ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ)๐Ÿ”— http://michaelbecker.org/contentcapitalistbook/๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐—๐—ข๐—œ๐—ก - ๐—™๐—• ๐—š๐—ฅ๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฃ ๐—™๐—ข๐—ฅ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ง๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ก๐—˜๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐Ÿ”— https://www.facebook.com/groups/contententrepreneurs๐Ÿ“Œ ๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—•๐—ฆ๐—–๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—•๐—˜ - ๐—•๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—š๐Ÿ”— http://www.michaelbecker.org๐ŸŒ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ก๐—˜๐—–๐—ง - ๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—–๐—œ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐Ÿ”— https://www.instagram.com/officialmbecker๐Ÿ”— https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvbfJXLaqhJxQSPSYdfH-zQโ—‰ Thanks for listening!
