I value Tom Bilyeu and Andy Frisella and guys like Ed Mylett and Lewis Howes, etc. If I value them, I’m going to actually be active on their social media platforms. I’m going to show gratitude when they put up a post that I like, etc.
I am standing on the shoulders of giants and the two giants that really brought me out were Andy Frisella and Tom Bilyeu as far as mainstream is concerned.
Well, people go “How did you connect with them?” One, I do put out good content and I believe that everyone is always watching. I always put out good content, relevant content that you could back up, don’t just profess, but not practice. I practice what I profess and the proof is in the pudding in my franchise growth.
I value Tom Bilyeu and Andy Frisella and guys like Ed Mylett and Lewis Howes, etc. If I value them, I’m going to actually be active on their social media platforms. I’m going to show gratitude when they put a post that I like, etc. It just so happens that Andy Frisella had written a book, a children’s book, and it was titled Otis and Charlie Play to Win. I think one of his dogs name is Otis.
My kids go to the elementary school, and Andy’s book teaches kids how to be competitive and that it’s okay to win. I like that mindset. I’m a big fan. What better way to get on Andy Frisella’s radar than to buy 250 copies of his books and donate them to my kids’ school? That’s what I did because I wanted to help not only my kids but their friends and my community.
I did that. Of course, I took a picture and I posted that on social media and I tagged Andy Frisella and I showed gratitude.
I said “Hey Andy, thank you so much for writing an amazing book. I bought 250 copies, donating to my kids’ school, and because of that, we’re going to have young entrepreneurs who are going to rise and dominate.”
Kind of got on his radar that way.
But it was once I got on his radar, he said “Hey man, look, you look like you’re the real deal. I’d love to get to know you better.” We ended up talking and building a friendship and he was kind enough to put me on his podcast and he’s one of the shoulders that I stand on.
The same thing with Tom Bilyeu. I come with a giving hand, I share a lot of value, I leave comments, and before you know it, they ask you to be on their show.
If you’re an imposter, people can smell it. They can tell. If you’re the real deal, they’re going to do their research and see you’re the real deal and give you the opportunity on their platform.
I’m that guy that goes “I’m never going to drown that guy who taught me how to swim.” I’ll always talk about Andy Frisella and Tom Bilyeu and Ed Mylett and actually Shawn Stevenson and Lewis Howes. Collectively, these guys put me on the radar and I’m eternally grateful for them.
