Colette: Hey, it's going great. How are you, Matt? 

Matt: Good. I'm doing really well. It's been a good morning. so far. You're in Idaho? 

Colette: Yep. 

Matt: Okay, cool. What's it like? Think it's like 8am? There, right? 

Colette: It is 8: 02. 

Matt: And there's a lot to unpack. So for those of you who are newer to our show, we do these every single Monday through Friday. And when we send out a little questionnaire, our guest who's going to be on there's not a lot of questions. It's just a few like four questions like, hey, just give us a heads up on who you are. But anyway, I have a few things that I want to kind of unpack during this. But mostly, I was just curious if you could tell us a little bit about things like, How the heck did you find Legendary and digital marketing and stuff? And like, what's like, what's your journey been like?

Colette: Well, yeah, it's been an amazing journey. I definitely am so thankful that I found Legendary Marketer. So if you if you kind of rewind from, you know, way back when so I've got three kids that are teenage kids now. And about, you know, I used to have a corporate job, and I worked long hours and everything. And when we work, so my kids are all close in age. And so when our when I was pregnant with our last child, we decided that it was the best decision for us is for me to stay home with our kids. Because for one, we were spending a fortune in daycare, and another we wanted to have me raise our babies. So we sacrificed a lot to bring me home. You know, we haven't we had some, you know, rough years. But it was absolutely exactly what my husband and I like what it was, it was definitely what we, you know, we were super thankful that we did it. And, you know, fast forward a couple years ago, we decided that it was time for me to go back and get a job. outside the home, I was able to raise the babies, it was an incredible, super blessed for it. And when I went back to go to the workforce a couple years ago, I mean, I started digging deep because I was like, I love being home with our, with our kids and I didn't like being away from him. I didn't like you know, not missing out on things right. And so I started searching for two years and I went through and you know, kept coming to dead ends right and never finding exactly what I was searching for. And then I was on tik tok. And the funny thing is, is I have a 13 year old and a 15 year old girl, and our 13 year old is like back when TikTok was like musically and they did all the dancing. So I remember seeing like these videos as this one dad had like, had done a video on 13 year old daughters that are on on musically and they're like constantly dancing wherever like the refrigerator, they're dancing, you know, they're dancing is or walking out to the car, like, you know, that I'm ever getting after my daughter like oh my gosh, stop dancing. And so then it was so ironic when I was like okay, well, you know, kind of like, I started to get on to tik tok and like actually even say that so, my daughter wasn't talking. Oh no, I did get I did get on tik tok just to kind of like go through the social and you know what that is? Because I'd heard so many like, great things about entertainment on tik tok. And so I was on tik tok and you know, scrolling and and I never claimed to see affiliate marketing and I was like, What is this? You know? Yeah, I just kept scrolling and I kept seeing it. And so my mentors who are incredible people, I remember seeing them. And I felt like the tick tock videos, and I was like, Okay, this is, you know, this isn't what I'm looking for. And so I kept scrolling. And then I saw live on them. And the live really, like, took me in because I was like, Oh, my gosh, they're too, you know, regular people that are making money online, maybe this is something that I need to look into a little bit more. And so then I started looking into it. And I even it was seriously an answer to my prayers, like, affiliate marketing is the best I like, if you look at all my content, I say this over and over again, it's the best beginner friendly way to make money online. I mean, it really is, because you're not having to, you know, like, in all the different stuff that I've done in the past, I always hated having to try to, you know, sell something on something that I didn't really like. Because, you know, you're kind of forced to write. And so um, this is just incredible, because you get to just promote whatever you love, and, you know, you get to help other people. And, and that's my bottom line is I've always wanted to help other people, like I've always had this burning desire, always loved people, and wanted to help them. And so the coolest thing is, is with this affiliate marketing that I found, it's like this whole amazing package that I've been looking for.

Matt: Really cool. That's super, super cool. Have you had tried, like other sort of network marketing stuff before?

Colette: Yeah, yeah, we did Amway. We did. I can't even remember, we we've done we've done so many things, just because I've always wanted to, you know, I've always been searching, I've always had that kind of entrepreneur. mentality. So yeah, so this has just been, like, I'm super grateful for what you guys have created. The community, Oh, my gosh, like, I have never been welcomed into a community and made so many wonderful friends, with so many genuine people. And in my, I can't do these lives. And I tell people that like, once you get into this community, it's like everybody is there for each other. Like, when you're in the corporate world, you know, you have your friends, and you have people that you know, you love to hang out with, and all that outside of work that you work with. But it's, you know, it's a dog eat dog world in a way just because if there's a promotion, we're all going for the promotion. Whereas in affiliate marketing your your your your unique self, and you get a route on other people are doing the same thing that you're doing. So I love it so much. Like, it's, it's the best thing.

Matt: That's super cool. And you're killing it to like, tell your son that you're not just like, I mean, you just hit 100,000 on TikTok. And like, you're just so a big part of your, like vibe and energy and why people love you, I think is probably not probably it definitely is. It's that sense of optimism, like you even mentioned it, but it's that you're you're genuinely like, it's funny how we actually, you know, like, we put that out, I think as like a staff and as a leadership team. And as like, BPA is and stuff like that, like we put that out. And we've had like, there's there's people, like I joined the team in 2018. And there's people who were there before me like Andre and Jackie and just other people who who have been with our company, Ricardo, before I was even around. And it's just funny, it's interesting how like, their energy is exactly what you described. And I would say like most of our team is that way to where it's like, what we're trying to do is create sort of a pop up place of positivity and motivation and inspiration. And like, you know, I always liken it to sort of like, hey, let me just put my arm around you here. And like, let me just give you some tips. Because really, we can all just win this. And a lot of people are really motivated, like, it seems like maybe you are, by a sense of like, I can also really help people like that can really open the eyes of people and give them something of value, which I think is like, maybe more important than the money sometimes, although they're making great money and like, you know, you're honestly you're making life changing money to so like what's could meet that?

Colette: I know, right? Well, and I love to because it's like you're giving people hope. And I think that in our world now. That's what we need. So much like hope, knowing that there is a possibility that you can change your future like There, there. There's something that we have found that is just a life changing. You know, like I look at life so differently. I like I you know, like you said, I've always been the half glass. Boy, I always my family always loved me because I was certain things the opposite way of what they're saying. I'm a half, I might have glass full person. I've always been like that. And that's what I love the most is because, you know, we get to bring that to people and that's what I've been searching for all these years. And I've I only found it. So thank you. Thank you.

Matt: Super cool. And we, yes, it definitely resonates out from our community. But I would also say that, like, we definitely owe a lot to our community too, because there's a lot of people who, for whatever reason, like, I don't know why, but they give a lot of their time to like helping other people in our community. And they don't have to, they're not getting paid for it, like, you know, and, and even when there's no end game for them to like, benefit from it, really, they still do it, because they're good people. And we have a community filled with genuinely good people. It's really cool.

Colette: Yeah. And I've had so many of my friends that I've been introduced to, that's what they've done, they've helped me and they had nothing to gain from it. And that's what's so amazing about it. And I've always been a believer that good, brings good, so when you're when you put good out there, you bring good back. And so that's always been kind of like my motto. So I always, you know, I always think to myself, okay, what am I? What am I putting out there? Am I am I making somebody feel good when I leave, like that's my end result is I want someone to feel better when I leave. 

Matt: So what? Okay, so you get into this whole thing, you start making content that has to be like a little bit about, was this a new thing for you?

Colette: You have no idea how terrified I I was. Like so if you would have told me, you know, a while back that I would be posting content on TikTok, I would have laughed in your face and been like, You're crazy. Because, like, I do not like and I don't like to be in the in the, in the spotlight. I like to be the one bringing the spotlight at other people like I so in the backseat, so things. And so when I when I started learning about affiliate marketing, and you know, understanding how I was going to be promoting, I dragged my feet. And I had one of my friends that that I've learned that I've met through here. She's amazing. She kept pushing, and she was like Colette, just start posting. 

Matt: Who was that?

Colette: It was Yamini. You need to get at her she is amazing. I love her. She seriously has been like my little motivator and my cheerleader the entire time. She's amazing. If you guys are following her, you definitely need to follow up. But yeah, so she so she helped me and got me going on my tickets. And it's so funny because like, you know, you look and I'm ticked off, and I've gotten better now, but I would do like 30 different videos before I finally got the video that I was like, Okay, I will go ahead and post it, you know.

Matt: Right. So on your on your content, I also wanted to just unpack like, if if people are go to your channel, just kind of scrolling through it. But I noticed something that like, there was a that so you were creating content since April, like way back in April. And things didn't really take off for you until like June July, kind of like really take off till maybe around July. And I've I kind of noticed a shift in content style. Was there something? What happened? Like, in June, July, I feel like on my end, I see uptick in views, and short of a shift in content stylistically, that may be led to more viral content. I don't know, did you have anything that changed? 

Colette: Well, I think that so you know, I went to the valley of despair. And, and, you know, it's so funny, because, like, it's, it's not easy, but it's simple, right? And, and you have to continue to believe in yourself and keep posting. And so I like I said earlier, like, I feel like I try to always put good out there. And so like I went through, you know, just weeks of, you know, just not many views. And I think that I kind of started to believe in myself, you know, towards that period where I was like, okay, you know, I'm going to make this happen. I'm going to keep doing this. But this is my journey. This is my story. So I can tell other people that you know, it takes time, sometimes people go viral super quick, and sometimes it takes time. So, to me, like, I think that Yeah, I just I started to you know, kind of, maybe believe in myself more. And then I was watching other, you know, other videos and kind of seeing what they were doing. And so then I was like, okay, you know, I started to kind of put a little bit more of a mixture into it.

Matt: Nice, nice, cool. And you had I mean, I feel like you posted probably okay, so I'm going to scroll back. There's one video in particular that you got 6 million views on crazy. Yeah, in July, and I see it but I think the powerful part isn't so much that video. As it is. Let's see nine Okay, so 918 27 Okay, 3050 I'm just doing a quick count. Give me one sec. I want to say maybe like 70 plus videos, maybe 100 videos, I don't know, posted like four or five a day. Yeah, there's a lot. Probably well over 100 as I'm scrolling through here, where that really happened. Yeah. Right. And like, for me, I, it's Yeah, I don't know. It's just super powerful. And I don't know. I mean, basically, what I'm describing guys is there's like this posting, posting, posting, posting. And from about, like, I don't know, March or April all the way to June, June, you shifted your content a little towards more educational style, like edutainment education, while you're still doing your happy blast, which I think is really cool and smart. Right? So balancing out like, lifestyle type stuff, here's how to get to know me, here's who I am. Here's like a little blast for my followers, right? I do it for the followers, because they like that, and they enjoy it. And they love following you. And then. And then you've got these other ones that are more like, for instance, one of the headlines was something like how to get paid money by target, right? Or how to get paid. And the one that I was looking at was the Tesla one that got 6.9 million views. And it's just at that point, or how to shine right like 30, you got 31,000 views. All that started to happen in June in July. And then I guessing you had a realization like, Oh, these How To Videos really get viral. And then just from getting that little viral piece, did you do anything, let's say for instance, with the Tesla one you started to go from, but there's a hard switch here. So like you, you went from having a few 1000 views per video, and you were really starting to get traction to you hit that one. And it smoked a homerun and you got 6 million views, which is humongous. So most people never see that right. And, and it went crazy viral. And after that, I mean, most of your videos for the next aisle were like 12,000 17,000. And you had a flurry, massive flurry of leads and sales during that time and still are like the trickles still there. Later. Did you so in conjunction with creating that really viral video? Did you have anything else that was like, were you doing anything else? were you doing live spree doing more videos? Or was everything else pretty much the same?

Colette: So I did start lives. And again, I was terrified. Like, if you could have recorded my first live, you would have just probably there on the ground laughing because I was like deer in the headlights. Like, what do I say, you know, I got on. And I got off really quick because I was like, Oh my gosh, this is so scary. But it's funny because like, as I've started to do my lives, it's almost therapeutic to me. Because the reason why I say that is I've found what I've been searching for all this time. So to me, I feel like I'm doing a disservice by not going live. Because if there's that one, even if I only have four people that get on my lives, I treat those four people like they're my everything because they really are like they they are they are they are looking for something to change their life. Right? So if I can impact them, even if I can give them just a glimmer of hope. And they go on and do something different with their life. That's incredible and amazing. My job is done, right? Because I like I said earlier, hope is the biggest thing, right? So if we can instill hope in people, and know that they can be in charge of their life, and they can change, you'll have a hover that changes. So yeah, so I started doing lives. And I actually love my life. Like I actually look forward to him. Just because like, you know, just just knowing that I'm I'm reaching a wide more audience that maybe will decide to you know, look at my content a little bit more. And you know, then I can help. So, yeah, so I feel like it's definitely that. And again, you mean he is the one that kept pushing me like when I was finding I dragged my feet, because I was like, Okay, once I get 1000 I'll do live. And it was at 1000 I was like, Oh no, I've got to do my lives now. So but now I love it like it's awesome. My, I just have to tell you this, my husband, and my kids are so incredibly supportive me, they have been like my biggest cheerleaders. So, to me, like, that is such a blessing right there, like I could, I could stop this during right now and be totally happy and content with where I've gone because, you know, I've shown my kids that there's another option out there, and, you know, being welcomed into this amazing community of people. Like there's so many good people out there. So to me, I, thank you so much for you and Dave, having this amazing community that you've created, and just for me to be a part of it, and my family, my husband, my kids, you know, just to be be here with me, it's just right there. Like that's, that's all I needed.

Matt: That's super cool. I, I also feel like it's just an inspiration. Like, I just think of like, What a powerful thing it is for, you know, to have a mom or a parent figure, like, step out and do something like this. And, like, it's extraordinarily vulnerable, like, really, really vulnerable. And I just think like, most people will just overlook that, like how powerful that is. And I just feel like To me, that's such a standout, like, Oh my gosh, like to be a kid who can watch their mom go on social media on tape on this kid's app and just smoke it, and, like, create a transformational business and have a video that gets watched 7 million times. And like this is this insanity. But I think like what you said is is really true, like shows them there's different ways, there's different options, there's different, like not you don't have to follow exactly what you know, you might learn in traditional school, or like, there's a lot of different ways to go about life even, especially making money, but just life in general. Like there's just a lot more out there than, like kids are usually aware of. Yeah, man, that is so cool. It's so powerful. I also like the other thing that really stands out to me is that, like, it's always funny how people are. It's a lot of times the people who are like, man, I could never do that. Or I could just never do that, or I don't know if I can really pull that off are always the people who go online on social media. And like, there's a there's a instinctual, sort of like, just as a feeler thing, where people like they've watched you on a live or they watch you in a video, and they just sort of connect with you. Right? They just sort of are like, I don't know what it is. And part of it is like, I think that, would you call yourself an introvert?

Colette: Well, in ways like, I'm a very social person, like I love to be around people. But I also like I don't, I don't like attention on myself. I didn't like the furthest person with attention. So on that, yes, I would definitely say I'm an introvert because I want to, you know, compliment and make whoever I'm with, you know, feel good about themselves. 

Matt: I shouldn't have said to introvert, what I should have said is like, you don't crave attention. Yeah. Or you were, you know, in a way, like you're not narcissistic in a way that you need attention, or that you need people to sort of all eyes on me, you know, those kind of people sometimes And granted, like, our culture kind of props them up, and, and whatever they there's plenty of successful people like that. But also like, there's a whole space that's huge and massive for people who aren't like that. Yeah. And a lot of times people think that you can't be successful on social media with that type of personality or that type of whatever. But it's just not true. Like, in fact, a lot of times in our industry, it's like, people who are not like that ended up being way more successful. And also, like, way more transformational to the people that they're serving. Because there's a real sort of vulnerability and candor that like you just can't get with that kind of narcissistic, weird person who, you know, they're demanding your attention. just weird. And what, um, what? So, your daily thing like? I mean, shoot, you still have a full time job, or no? Yeah, yes. Yes. That's, that's crazy. So, you learned about three teenagers, full time job. So your husband works too?

Colette: He does this on the side. 

Matt: Okay. So that's all just like padding. Which is great. Like my guess is you probably haven't even spent $1 on advertising. 

Colette: No. Yeah, it's all organic. Yeah. It is amazing to me.

Matt: Yeah, it's it's the it's one of the most powerful. Like, it's one of the most powerful tools. Social media as always bad. Man. I mean, when you can, when you can really dial into something that's as viral as TikTok, or Instagram or whatever right now is just amazing. Yeah, it's insane. So how do you? I'm just curious for the moms and parents and people who are here and are like, how are you pulling this off? Like, how do you pull it off? What is your day like? Colette: Well, you know, My day starts, obviously, I go to my dog, I do, like I try to, I try to pack videos, or, you know, throughout the week, so like, I tried to do three or four videos that I'll save into my dress. So that way, I've got kind of a nest where I can distribute them out throughout the day, and still do my normal job, right. So I'm not being distracted by you know, anything like that. And then I'll come home, and I'll just, you know, be with my family. And I just basically, like, when my kids are doing stuff, or when my husband is doing stuff, that's when I'll, you know, do so the funny thing is, is so my, my kids and my husband have always told me to get a hobby, they've always been like, look as you might hope my whole world is my is my family. So when, you know, when I'm taking care of them, that's, that's what I do. Like, I'm in the next, you know, just whatever they need I dropping, you know, everything to make sure that everything's taken care of, for my family. And so they've always my husband, and my kids have always been like, Mommy needs to find a hobby, you need to find a hobby. And what I found affiliate marketing, it's like, oh, my gosh, this is my hobby. And what an amazing hobby, where I get to not only help others, but also help my family. Like it is the most beautiful hobby that I could have ever wanted a direct, you know, finding. So yeah, so like, when when my when my kids and my husband isn't teenage kids, you know, they've got sports, they've got, you know, different things that they're doing that, you know, like, right now, it's practices, so you can't go watch and things like that. So I just, you want to be very strategic with your day. And make sure that you know, when they're doing stuff, that's when I do my stuff. And then you know, we do stuff as a family. And then when we're not doing stuff as a family, then I come on, and I and it's awesome, because I love doing this. So it's like, it's not like I'm ever dreading it like I look forward to it. So that's what makes it even even better than than I could have ever imagined. So, yeah, I just, you just wanted to strategize. And, you know, just make sure that you're using every moment wisely.

Matt: I feel like yeah, I feel like it's really cool that there's a lot of purpose and meaning that you've discovered along the way. Like you discovered a lot of purpose and meaning along the way with your lives and you descend in that way like so how I was thinking about this the other day, and I think about this yesterday, as I was putting some shelves together. And I was thinking about how like Dave and I talk a lot about how, you know, throughout his career, he's just outlasted people. Right, like, and I think sometimes in business, I've sort of like really thought through it and thought through like people like Warren Buffett, or like, you know, just just a lot of like people who have stuck it out through business for a really long time. Like, I've been in this industry, nine ish years. And Dave's been in this industry for 10 years or so. And, like, a lot of people just come and go, or a lot of people come in and they'll shift and do a lot of different things in here. They're over here, and here, they're over here or whatever. And you know, legendaries have been now going on like four or five years or so maybe five years. And overall. I've come to the conclusion that just sometimes like winning in businesses, mostly outlasting people, and where I'm going with this is like sometimes outlasting people means that you have to find ways to stay interested. And you have to find ways to find like to get meaning from it all outside of just the money of it. Because it doesn't really matter what the dollar amount is like it'll never sort of, there's always sort of this lingering anxiety if there's not some sort of like pull from it. There's not some sort of, you can give and give and give and give. But if it's not something you enjoy, or like that doesn't feel you or feed you in any way. It's like well, then your cup eventually empties. And I just think it's cool that you along the way you found different ways to sort of be fueled by that, that originally weren't totally apparent. And, and, and that helps people like you said, like, it's not a chore. It's like something I'm like, excited to go and explore and, and try something new and see people that follow me and like, wow, I have followers. You know, I have people who follow me, like I show up. And I'm like a social media influencer. And which you are, you influence people's behavior, which is wild, you know, it's really cool. And I'm glad that you are doing that, because there's a lot of influencers who suck and who are cool and nice. And I just, I like that, because I feel like when people make that leap, the odds of them, being able to really stick it out, like really stick it out, are much higher, because it gives you the opportunity to actually do something you love. And along the way, as you're doing that, you discover more, you discover more ways, like you discover a lot more ways to monetize your business, you discover a lot more ways that you're fired up about the business, you discover holes and gaps that you missed before or ways that you can work in private coaching, or you can sell your own product or you're like oh my gosh, I could write an E book, right? And as you do that, suddenly you're a year in you're five years in, you're like 10 years in and you're like, wow, I have a lot of value right now. And then you can, you know, so anyway, there's just a lot there. And that's cool to hear you say that because sometimes, for people, it can be a real chore. And it might have been for you when you were first getting started. I don't know, but or just like pulling teeth like Wow, this is so awkward. Yeah. And eventually that turned for you. I think it does for most people. But most people like don't give it the time it needs. 

Colette: Yeah, for sure. Yeah, I always say, don't give up on your dreams, you know, you're, you're always you just need to keep you know, moving forward, step by step, just little steps. And don't give up. Absolutely. 100% don't give up. Because if you give up, then, you know, you're right back to where you started. So why do you want to be back to where you started? You want to keep going on the journey, because it's gonna make you a better person. And you get to help other people. And there's other people out there that are searching for you to help them.

Matt: Yes, bingo. Exactly. And they don't know that they need that help yet, but something inside is saying, I'm searching, I'm looking, I'm trying to find something. And then you're scrolling through the little TikTok, and oh, my gosh, here's our here's the image here who? Yeah, very cool. I love it. So if I'll give me the final word, if you're if you're sitting here and, and, and into this computer screen or phone screen is looking in somebody who's like you back in April, or wherever, you know, and they're like, like, I guess I need to like, get going on some content, I need to start my channel I need to get going. Do you have any tips? Or do you have any advice in terms of like, you know, obviously just get started. But like, you know, do you think it's important to commit to a certain amount of content a day, do you what feels important to that person to get them to push through.

Colette: So I would say you definitely need to post four to five videos a day. That's your goal. And at the very beginning, it was super hard. You know, just because I was like, you guys have heard me I was scared to death to do any of this. But be consistent post your four to five content. And don't be a perfectionist like people love raw and genuine and real. So when you when you've got you know, everything perfected that's not showing who you really are. So you know, when you when you do like a blooper, or when you do like, something that isn't exactly how you want it to be. Those are the ones that typically go viral, or those are the ones that get more views because you're showing people your personality, and that at the end of the day, that's what they want that there's you know, there's so many videos to look at. So just just don't, don't be a perfectionist and just do it. And don't give up on yourself. That's, that's my number one thing is, no matter how long it takes you like I just did a happy blast on this. You don't know when your breakthrough is gonna be. You don't know if it's gonna be tomorrow, two weeks, two months, you know, six months, but at the end of the day, you're doing it and that's all that matters. Like you can go to bed at night knowing that you've given it your all and maybe tomorrow is going to be a breakthrough. But just believe in yourself and surround yourself with people that believe. You know, like I told you earlier, my husband and I my kids have been my number one supporters. So when I was going through the valley of despair, they were always like, Mom, you're good Mom, you're good. You know, just keep doing that. Keep believing in yourself. We believe in you and So, you definitely need in this community of people is amazing. So like, you know, just surround yourself with people that want to lift you up. And you know, just don't give up on yourself.

Matt: Guys, go follow Colette and let her know how impactful this was, if it was impactful for you, I can see the comments so I already know it was but and if you're watching here as a replay, you know, we usually have a few 100 people here live and then you know, lots of people watching via replay, and through watch as a replay. Go give her a follow and let her know. You know, one of your takeaways from today. And Colette keep rockin if you need anything from us, if you need any help. I'm always here. I'm very available. So happy to help for whatever you need. 

Colette: Thank you so much, man. I totally appreciate you guys so much. 

Matt: Cool. Awesome. Have a good one. All right, guys. Geez. Another one, right. DJ Khaled. Happy Wednesday. Yeah, go give her a follow. She's awesome. And is a really, really great follow. And I think just a great story of like, you know, I think a lot of people quit in the, you know, the story where they're, you know, they're digging for gold, and they're three feet away, and then they stop. And like, you know, collect. She's making these videos in April, May, June, and things are a little slower. There's a few 100 people watching few 100 views, 500 views. And if you stop there, I mean, think of the goldmine that is just left, you know, undiscovered and uncollected. And it's tricky, because sometimes you really feel like, Okay, this isn't gonna work. And that's a real feeling. And the truth is, sometimes it doesn't work. That's the real truth. But typically, if you push and push and learn and grow, like if you do two things, you keep creating content of some sort, and you keep learning, you keep, like, it's not enough just to keep creating the content and just like, well, it's not working, I'm gonna keep doing it. That's true. But you've also got to be learning and growing and stretching yourself and figuring out what's working for other people and seeing how you can bring that into your marketing. So again, thanks, Claire. That was awesome. And we'll be back here again, they will be back tomorrow and Friday, same time 10am. Eastern, we've been doing this for like, I don't know, a year and a half or four. I mean, we've been live virtually every day for years. But between Dave and I do in these lives. I don't know somewhere around a year and a half like last April or March or something. And and we've got a whole big lineup of people if you're out there and you're getting results we've got about a month long waiting period, but if you're like out there killing it and we haven't heard of you or you know of somebody who's out there crushing it, and they're selling some sort of digital information or coaching or something, let us know. I mean, hit us up. You can email Dave at legendary marketer calm and let us know we'll reach out to him and get him hooked up. So we're always looking for new people, people outside of our community, people inside of our community, new people, just all kinds of stuff. So that's all we got for the day, guys. Take it easy. Have a good Wednesday.

Below is the transcription for this episode:

Dave: What's going on, my friends, this is Dave Sharpe welcome to Wake up Legendary. I've got a quick announcement for everybody. In 2020 people were not able to come to any of our masterminds because well quite frankly we didn't have any. We have dates scheduled, if you have a mastermind ticket for this particular event, turn your mess into a message that's going to be the theme for this particular mastermind, and it's going to be happening September, 9, 10th and 11th. All right, so as you can see right there. This is an exclusive limited t-shirt. We're going to be giving them away. Okay, so not here to not here to sell merch, just to make that announcement so we sent an email out over the last couple of days, we'll be sending more out over the, you know the next couple of weeks. It's first come first serve in terms of booking the slots, or the seats, and then we're going to be having another mastermind if you can't meet. Make the September 9 10th and 11th, December 3rd, 4th and fifth now remember this is for those of you who have purchased a mastermind ticket or took us up on our blueprints and mastermind deal as you're going through the challenge or as you were coming into Legendary Marketer you saw us. Hopefully you saw us make an offer for you to get all of our blueprints and mastermind tickets, you know, for that kind of bundle deal anyway. Turn your mess into a message, baby 2021 Okay 2021 September, 9th, 10th and 11th that we're going to talk to somebody who actually I think is selling a little bit of merch. With that being said, I'm going to this girl's gonna, we're going to, we're going to go into all the details, she's going to be a really cool and exciting guest with that being said, Bre, welcome to the show. Hey, what is going down, how are you and where are you calling in from?

Bre: I'm good. I am currently in Tucson, Arizona, that's where I live right about now.

Dave: Nice, nice so you are doing some interesting stuff you've been starting this, you've started this affiliate marketing business. In May of 2021, so this year so May June July, and we're basically about to move into our third month now, like doing this. We also have a full time job, give us a little bit of, like, who you are, in a nutshell, and what led you to Legendary Marketer and and just let us get to know you just in kind of a two minute drill here. All right, cool.

Bre: Well, I'm originally dated with a degree in diagnostic medical sonography which is just a really fancy term for ultrasound. And then I got hired at a clinic out here in Arizona. In 2018 So I've been out here since then, I started TikTok in 2020 like when pandemic broke out. You know, I just got on there for fun and I started my personal page. I had no idea how it worked. I was just posting like crazy videos and I'm obviously obsessed with country music specifically Morgan Wallen, and I was that guy has gone through so many scandals 2020 It's not so like, yeah, like my videos have just blown up because I was just making like, you know, hilarious videos referring to, like all this stuff and give it like a baby like the poor dude had a rough year.

Dave: Basically the videos that you were making in 2021 were about this, this country music singer named Morgan so like a lot of your content was about this is, this guy.

Bre: Yeah and it's just like, like I just left a joke around and mess around and age like I didn't know anything about trends I didn't know anything about hashtags I didn't know anything. So I was just making these videos it's been crazy and my friends would be like you're so funny like that's good stuff, but when I talk to other people like maybe I’m funny.

Dave: Right, right, it's like it's like you live your whole life going I'm the funniest person I know it's about time people notice right.

Bre: My mom thinks I'm funny like that. But, my page blew up so big. Considering that, I'm just an average person like I have like 30,000 followers on it. And that's not reposting consistently, it's not from interacting with people and I had known then what I know my page would be so much different than marketing unknowingly this whole time for Morgan wallet. If I could have been making so much money because I was by like Morgan Wallen, coffee table I have a coffee table I have coasters I have all this stuff and

Dave: Hold on a second let me, let me. Your microphone is kind of like being off your shirt or something and I think it's still then, is that better yeah well either take it off, or hold it still. Yeah, because it's kind of like going boom boom boom.

Bre: I'll just hold it because it's connected to my earphones and I don't think I'll be able to hear you well and that's okay. So, I was actually marketing without knowing it and I just wasn't making any money, because I was posting all these cool things and I was finding and these videos are blowing up like getting hundreds of 1000’s of views, and I mean if you could do the math and you figure you know people are asking me for links, they were like, where did you get this Where did you get this, and I was just giving that the link and I was just like, hey, like check it out. And then, you know, come to me and I find affiliate marketing, obviously Legendary, and I'm like, holy moly, I could have been making money, this entire time. And so yeah I started doing that and then I fell in love with Legendary I fell in love with you know the mindset change because right out of school, I was making a lot of money like I made pretty good money, but I had never had money before in my life, and so I didn't understand how to use money, and that was so important, and I definitely got into debt extremely quickly because I never had money before and now I have all this money and now I think I read it that this wasn't the reality. And I think for me the biggest thing I've got here at Legendary besides all of these awesome tools and resources and skills. It's just a mindset change, like no matter how much money you have it's not going to matter if you don't know how to use it properly and if you don't understand, like to live within your means and things like that so that's kind of where I'm at.

Dave: Yeah, well that's great and that's one of the reasons why I don't personally do a lot of flexing on the internet or within this community, Even though I have the ability to do so. I thought that was fun. See these kinds of things you know what I mean to where you, you, you drop a dad joke or something and then you look at your kids and your wife and nobody's laughing and you're like, I thought that was funny. So, like because there's such a huge flex culture, online, and in the entrepreneur space, you know, over the last couple of years, we've all been on Instagram, particularly Instagram has been, been the worst for the flex culture, but you know, we see private jets, we see we see we see exotic cars, we see iced out jewelry we see all this stuff. And we think that that is success, like that's like I gotta look like that, and I gotta have those things to be successful. So, when we get a little bit of money, or we get a credit card, we go we spend on on drip right clothes on jewelry on all this stuff early in the game cars, houses, and before we know it you know this dream of entrepreneurship of building a business, or even having a good job is now a nightmare. And so it's a great thing that you bring that up because that's not just a problem in entrepreneurship, that's a problem in society because once you turn 18 You start getting bombarded with credit cards, as well as student loan debt, and you could graduate call, I mean, most of the time you do graduate college, with six figures in debt.

Bree: Yeah, yeah, for sure, and it's funny that you say that because I was actually thinking about going to school. I would have my lifelong dream to be a doctor, and that mindset has changed completely. See, like entrepreneurship has changed my mind for what I really feel like success, is it's definitely not about the money anymore, it's not about the house or the car, it's about like what I'm worth towards now is like, I would love for this to like business to blow up and I could you know quit my job tomorrow but even if that doesn't happen. I just want to come to the point where it's like okay maybe I only have to work two days out of the week, or maybe I'm like you know I want to have that freedom, More than the money, and I think you like just having that mindset of recognizing your freedom is so, so much more than money.

Dave: Yeah. And I think that living in America anyways we have a lot of freedom that we don't realize that we have, and is all we have to do. We start traveling, and we kind of, you know, we take our problems back and say, I'm grateful for my problems. I don't want other people's problems. But there is, there is another level of freedom, right, because, because as much as, as much freedom as we do have just to kind of move about freely and live where we want and kind of do what we want, say what we want right the freedom of speech and all these kinds of things that we have the freedom to bear arms all these all these rights. There is another level, you know, there's levels to the, to the freedom game. And I think that's something that a lot of people are kind of shocked by when they're exposed to a community like us, where we're like, for me personally, I've not. I wouldn't even know what to do with myself driving into a job, or having to go somewhere for eight hours a day, or, or sitting in traffic like I haven't done that in so long. And just detaching now there's nothing wrong with that because I did that for a period of time, because I had to get to where I was where I was going, but there is there is a there is a there is a whole new world sort of waiting for people to kind of discover when they are their skepticism and they lower their pessimistic attitude about what's possible and just,

you don't have to be a super duper positive person positive thinker. It's just, were you ever skeptical, or did you just not know this world existed.

Bre: I was always wondering how like people were making money online, like I've always wondered that and I just didn't know how they were doing it, and I've had people tell me like you could be one of those influencers, I'm like, I know I'm just a regular person like I didn’t even know I would get started and so whenever I first came across Legendary It was obviously on TikTok. Yeah, I was super skeptical and whenever, even when I started the seven day. I mean the 15 day challenge, I actually locked my card. So that like no other charges could be

Dave: For real you thought that there was going to be just like just we're going to start kind of dinging your card. 

Bre: I just thought it was too good to be true, you know, like I just had that mindset, I was super skeptical about the program I was super skeptical about the process and chinos obviously I went through the challenge and I was like, Well, I'm going to give it a shot, you know, I'm going to try and see and sure enough it worked like, it would just, it blew my mind because it just, it works, and I couldn't believe that it actually worked. So yeah, I was super skeptical about it and just seeing the opportunity that is here online, you know, it's definitely changed my mindset of my life direction. Absolutely.

Dave: So, let's talk about what kind of you're what you're doing. You, you, in, you're not, it doesn't seem to me which I don't really know yet, really what you're doing. Because, I mean, for those of you who are new to the show or whatever like there's not a big interview process, I don't. I didn't even talk to Barry before we went live, I just said hey how you doing and so I'm learning right along. Everyone else here is listening and I think that's one of the cool things about the show is that there's no prep, and there's no script, and you could say some crazy stuff. I would have no control over it, I would probably respond and shoot the shit with you and figure out where you're going with it right but. But what exactly are you doing, how have you turned this hobby on? This passion. Now, how have you begun to monetize it in your own really cool and creative way because that's what I want people to hear today. Is that you, instead of looking at what everybody else is doing and trying to sort of follow the crowd and really get this kind of big comparisonitis that we all have kind of naturally I think we all want to kind of be with. I feel like it's a natural thing and I'm only saying that because if you feel like you're wanting to look at other people and see what they're doing and do what they're doing, I just want to let you know it's normal, something unique here So walk us through what you have done, and kind of how you're doing and so we can kind of understand a little bit more.

Bre: Okay. Absolutely. So, um, the first thing that I noticed is on Morgan Wallens page, he actually doesn't have an email list, like I've put my email into that. Well, maybe they just didn't get my emails, like I don't know. So then I talked about on his website or his Yeah, on his on his personal website, you know, and people are always like, What is he doing what is he doing I'm like okay, so what if I build an email list and just give them updates because I'm obviously paying attention to what this guy is doing anyway so I'm obviously you know, doing all these things so I kind of built an email list of quite a few people. And then, you know I just honestly like there's so many affiliate programs obviously Amazon's a big one but like Etsy has an affiliate program, and I didn't even know about that so many cool things on Etsy. There's so many different places that have affiliate programs that I had no idea about until I started researching them. And so I started applying, and then I would send out a few emails like Hey guys, this is what he's up to today, this is the things he's doing and hate, by the way, check out these cool other things that I found right. And so sure enough, I'm sending out those emails. Those people want the emails they want to know what this guy's doing these people are crazy they put up billboards in Nashville when he got banned from the CMAS hey these people just want links. I'm in a Facebook group, with the Morgan Wallen fan page. These are literally asking for you to find things that they want. So, all I had to do was go on the internet find things that they want make sure they have an affiliate program, and share it with these people so it wasn't a lot of times it wasn't necessarily that I was just out there like throwing my links at people, people asked me, Hey, he would, you know, where did you find these things. And so yeah now I do that a lot through my email list. One thing I did have my other TikTok page banned and I was almost at 10,000, which is super disheartening, but that actually shifted my focus to maybe building a more permanent platform because now I see that the process works, and I see that, obviously it's successful. So that's been my focus the last month, as I am actually super interested in blogging, it's a really really really hard thing to start. It's not easy, but as I've been giving a lot of my attention and time to that because I want to build a platform that is my own that nobody can ban, nobody could take down, you know, a God forbid that my other pages get taken down or something happens on YouTube or whatever, right, like I want to have something that is mine. No one can take it down and people know where to find me. 

Dave: And some of the most successful sites like for example, back when I was doing network marketing. Back in the day, like these new sites like MLM Help Desk and business from home, they were sort of, they were the, they were the news. they were the, they were the. They were sort of the bullhorn, right, that communicated that news about the industry. Similarly to news channels, who, when you want to know what's going on in the world or you want to know what's going on with the president or you want to know what's going on with you don't go to whitehouse.gov, you turn on your TV and you let that station communicate those things to you, right i mean that's tip I'm not saying use personally but just society does. So I think we underestimate the power of having that hub, and even that website to wear on a specific topic, particularly with this sort of kind of strategy to where you're communicating news about an artist or a musician, or somebody, or, or a sports team or something. This is a, this is like the true definition of niching down. Right, so a lot of people might think okay hey I love country music I'm going to get into country music. But the real power. I think that you're showing us all and teaching us all right now and reminding us of is the power of super niching down like niching down all the way to a specific artists, because the contents that much more potent, because it relates to a specific person and even as you said in 2020 He had a bunch of drama.

I mean that's like to say because I so if you can find an artist or a musician or somebody who has a lot of drama, who has a lot of things going on in their life, who's not just cute, who's not just to somebody who we all like to look at or like them grow their family but who's going through divorces who's having kids who's having I mean like Drake would be a good example, like Drake is somebody who he had the kid who was sort of a secret there for a while, and, and, and then he finally kind of let everybody know that he had a son, and they remember he brought up to the music awards here just recently, and everybody got to see like him kind of walking beside his dad and I don't know, I'm sure this boring guy is much more interesting than Drake is but that would be a good example of somebody who you already know 10s Or hundreds of millions of people around the world, like this person. Love this are obsessed with this person, and if you can become the go to hub for news for drama for like TMZ for show dates for appearances, where they were spotted at what talent they might be in right now today because you looked at an Instagram picture and Instagram story and identified that you know that was this Seattle tower, you become almost like a stalker right, but people love that because they want to stop these people they want to potentially go and catch them coming out of the studio somewhere, and these are the type of fans that will go and drive hours to just maybe get a glimpse of it am I, am I hitting the nail on the head right now?

Bre: Oh heck yes these people, myself included, are bonkers. I can't even tell you the amount of money they're willing to spend on this man is just insane so yeah if you could be that middleman, on whatever.

Dave: It could be like you said sports teams that's huge to like have blinders on a sports team, what about that, that's even more niched down, right?

Bre: Yeah, this, I mean these scandals all the time like I mean, obviously now it's past like a rod would have been a crazy one like right when he was going through all his scandals. There's so many things that people

Dave: Like, they may follow your Britney Spears right. She's going through this whole thing to where she's trying to get her life back right now. And if you became obsessed, like say you were Britney Spears fancy you're already interested, but like that's somebody who I'm sure a lot of people are sleeping on right now that's just one that popped in my head.

Bre: Oh yeah, that's huge right now I can't tell you how many like posts, it's like free Britney right, okay. But, but definitely I think finding, and then another thing too is, I've made a lot of friends with these people right so I built this page and I share similar interests with these people so when I share things with them it doesn't seem like I'm trying to make money off of them. To them it seems like, oh, brief on this really cool thing, she wants to share it with us. So focus on building a lot of relationships too, and the money is going to come later, you know.

Dave: Yeah, no, so I like how I like you. You've. So would you say that you've positioned yourself as, like, the number one fan, or would you say that you've more positioned yourself as somebody who communicates like what's going on with this guy. What would you say kind of if somebody was to describe you who followed, or maybe who's bought some merch or something from you. Like how would they describe you?

Bre: I think initially it would have been the number one fan, but it's definitely transitioned now to like the news center, more or less my email list is more so where I share a lot more detailed things obviously my TikTok is more like the entertaining thing. So I would say now it's more they come to me like hey, what's, what's going on and Morgan like we had heard everything and like Well dude he's been off the radar, you know like his sister actually followed me on Tik Tok. I was blown out like if they know me, they know. Right. Yes, I would say that they come to me more so just for like news but also they view me as a number one fan. He hasn't reached out to me to like give me backstage passes or anything like that yet which I'm really like, come on dude,

like, come on. But, yeah, I definitely think that it was initially number one fan but now it's transitioning more to like a news resource because he doesn't have an email like he doesn't have any updates going out.

Dave: Do you think that you have a part of you that is, is potentially hoping, or open to, if he and his team reached out, or his team reached out for you to come in, maybe onboard him as a client or work, or have him hire you, I mean is that, would you be open to something like that?

Bre: That thought has actually crossed my mind a lot and a lot of people have asked me that they're like, What would you do this team reached out to you, you know because you're actually doing a lot for him like right now, you know you are marketing for him not only his music but obviously his merge and other things like that. What would you do and then like, well, I have the skills out like I know how to do these things now thanks to legendary but yeah I think I would actually do that and like I love country music to be able to do something like that. Amazing. I think it's a huge opportunity for me. You just never know what's going to happen. And so, I haven't gotten that email yet. 

Dave: See, I, even I mean, I think that's just the tip of the iceberg for what's, what's like your potential and the opportunity for you now that you kind of understand how to navigate these platforms and you understand kind of the psychology of a, of a target customer because that's ultimately like what you've learned in, in, I think the one of the easiest ways to understand a target customer is, is kind of, is kind of be that target customer first. And that's exactly what you were and I think a lot of people miss that. I think a lot of people, for example, you guys. Many of you came in and wanted to learn how to make money online, I mean I would think that that's why the majority of you're here or else you love this, this, this beautiful baby face showing up every day I don't know what it is, but I mean it could be, it could be my good looks, I just don't think it is, I think most of these people want to build a business online. And what I think a lot of, a lot of us miss is, is just looking at what drew me, like, what did I like, what would How would I like to be communicated to like what message resonated with me. Did you do, did you and do you have that awareness to stay to both speak to your audience like you'd want to be spoken to, and how are you staying connected because I think sometimes we'll move we become the creator and the communicator is sometimes marketers get they get far away from, who they're talking to. One of the reasons why I do the show is because personally I want to stay connected and attached to my target client, right. You are somebody who I love to market to people happy you've got a good personality or we're super grateful. But in general, somebody who wants to build a business online. Do you understand what I'm trying to ask here, like how, how are you? How are you working on improving your understanding of psychology? And what do you think has worked so well I guess to be able to connect your writing and your emails in your, in what you're saying on your videos like, what do you think is, what do you think is your kind of secret sauce that's resonating with people and getting them to kind of know like and trust you?

Bre: I think just being like I said just being friendly and being myself, these people that are on my talk page have followed me on Instagram, that we actually have exchanged phone numbers like a lot of these people I know on a personal level. And so obviously I can't be in 3000 places at once so going live definitely getting to know people over live, you know, in the Facebook group, a lot of people messaged me and say hey, like I've seen your videos are so funny, like, do you have an Instagram and so they know how I speak they know my voice they know my personality. And so, when I write my emails, or when I'm posting videos or whatever, I try to stay within this spunky, like high energy vibe, that is me, like, I know that's not everybody, but that is me and that's how these people know me, and so on my page. Yeah, sometimes I post a few personal videos, they usually don't do as well because that's not like what my page is about. But I want these people to know me and know who I am and know my personality, so they're so they know me, you know, it's like, like branding, kind of, you know like, yeah.

Dave: So yeah, I mean, no I totally get it and I think that's really important. I think that's kind of like, I think you could do it either way. So any of you who are listening who are kind of having kind of thoughts come, I think you could do it either way. I think you could do it without showing your face at all like totally behind the scenes like I really, I know that that's possible. I've seen it done before. Of course, you know, it's hard to kind of connect with those people and get them on shows and stuff because they are literally behind the scenes and nobody knows who actually kind of runs the business. But I do think the way that you're doing this is the perfect combination of about 90 to 95% your topic and then sprinkling in bits and pieces about yourself, maybe even 90 to 97% your topic, because a lot of what people in, I'm a good example of that to people will connect with you, not because you're constantly talking about yourself in your personal life but just because of the way that you deliver your content, you know, you build connect with your quirks and that's one of the things that I, I really constantly try to remind all of you about, is that like you got so many of you, all of you have your own unique personality. It's beautiful, it's cool, it's funny, I know some of you are sitting there thinking you're beating yourself up thinking, No I don't. Right. And if you turn that frown upside down and get out of your pessimistic

glass half empty beating yourself up mode, we can, we can get to this place where you'll admitted you know that you have, you're a special type of snowflake, right, you're a unique person. And the more you bring that out, the more that you kind of, that is your brain. Breathe. What are some of the kind of things that you do that are quirky, that you know that people like about you, and that is one of those kind of intangibles, it's not just the content about this guy Morgan, but it is certain things that you do or the way that you do them and now maybe even you do them intentionally because you've realized people like them about your kind of know you for those things, you're smiling is something specific coming up for you?

Bre: I don't know if there's anything in specific but like on my page I'd actually like to do a male, like makeup of Morgan Wallen, which was just like, painted on moustache and like I made myself a mullet and he wears it like an earring. And that was hilarious, in my mind and I was like, oh my god like there's nobody that nobody sees this and then it blew up, it's like, and then you know people are like, oh my gosh like do another Morgan skit, you know, and I like, okay, like I look like an idiot, but that's the thing is like I grew up in a really small town so I had, like, oh my goodness, like what are people gonna think of that and I realized there's crazy people out there just like me that like this and think I'm funny and like me as a person, and, and just who I am at the end of the day, and you're going to find those people online like you're going to find your tribe, you're going to find the people that love you for you. And so I would say that just, they know that I'm crazy and I honestly would post pretty much anything these skits are just hilarious, in my opinion, if you don't understand the scandals, you probably won't get the humor but you know I just think just being willing to put yourself out there and some people aren't as funny and silly but maybe you have a different story to tell, you know, maybe you've been through a certain thing in life. People will resonate with you and they'll connect with you, and sometimes you don't even know why, it's just, it's just who you are, but just being yourself and people see that and they love that. 

Dave: Yeah, I totally agree. So one of the things that I like about what you've done is that you basically have just like all the, like, basically said, kind of, I gonna try to be perfect with this, I'm just going to do this right, and I don't give a damn how it, like, looks like I'm not gonna worry about having a fancy website and all this kind of stuff to get started. And you basically just on your, your link bio have like links out to like, literally, like Amazon, like pages, right, it took for various products, right, this other one, the iPods case. Right. I mean it's just, it's literally just it's linking right out to the particular product and then this was Matt's favorite before we went live, you know the Morgan Wallen make Molyneux great again Flack, you know 1499 Every time somebody buys that you're going to get a commission because you've, you've used your affiliate, your Amazon affiliate link, and then you've got a little product site here it looks like on RedBubble to where, you know, people can order it looks like T-shirts and stuff and did you are in iPhone covers and stuff like that. And it looks like maybe these are designs that you made or something or had made and somebody, somebody can get them on a t- shirt or something. Is that right,

Bre: Yes I do, I mean there's a lot of ways to make money online. I definitely think affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways after trying other ways. But yeah, I do a few print on demand things and I create the signs myself. Yeah, but obviously I think affiliate marketing is way easier and that's what people ask me like, what's the easiest way I like affiliate marketing.

Dave: Right. I mean, in your doing just affiliate marketing and like such a simple and easy way like you're not, you're just linking. I mean, in that particular way you could certainly ask you this, your email list, how are you actually getting people's emails?

Bre: Yeah, so I did have my ClickFunnels in my in my bio at one point but because I shifted my focus to building a website, I took that down, I've just left the links of things that I've made videos on, you know that had that are still trending like I still getting likes people viewing those things coming in every day. So I leave those links there so people can find them, obviously, but as far as the email list I did build it with my Click Funnels, but like I said I'm transitioning to a website or blog, where these things will be on there forever, you know, and so that's how I built the email list, initially but like I said I'm in a transition stage. 

Dave: So, yeah, that makes sense. I mean, I just wonder, even during this transition stage. Would it be suitable to, like, what do you have your email list in Aweber get response or something like that, 

Bre: AWeber.

Dave: Yeah, just to just to at least keep a link up with a little Aweber form that because AWeber, you can build little landing pages and Aweber as well, just so you can continue to collect email addresses, like, I just, for me, lead generation is the blood flow, it's the, it's the lifeblood of every business and I think a lot of times when things are working, and we want to grow to the next level I've talked about this the other day, we stopped doing what is working and what got us to where we're at right now because we want to grow to the next level. And I think my personal opinion now after doing this myself right and seeing just 1000s of other people. As we grow, we just want to make sure that we don't stop doing what was working and we can never ever underestimate the power of lead generation, it all starts with building your list with generating leads, and then curating those leads by sending emails and sending communication to them, you know, on a daily basis or regular basis. And so, anyways, I don't have to answer and you don't have to commit and I just wanted to throw that out there for you to think about to just at least tenue generating those leads because we just it's such a valuable thing to have somebody's email address, and even, you know, another thing that you could start is community. There's a product named community which is exactly what we use every day to send out messages. Okay. And you can get people to also text you so, so you can have your own personal number to where you can message alert list to where to where. And you can also allow you to respond back to people in this app. So it's kind of it's kind of a, it's kind of a, it's kind of a, it's kind of like an email autoresponder to where you can blast the entire list. You could also make like segments, so if you wanted, you know, if you wanted to segment down, you know, people who were interested in shows, or people who were interested in just general information or whatever, but most people just have one number one big list, it's easiest to do it like that. You could also set up, you know whenever somebody has a birthday you can send them out. A birthday video like it's just cool, it's another thing that you can kind of more own and control. I know you don't own community, but it's sort of like an email list, like you can kind of own it, control it, and it's not gonna get banned and deactivated because you're paying for it as well, and the prices are really reasonable so I'd invite you to kind of think about that maybe as well.

Bre: Yeah, thank you for that Dave I honestly didn't know that you could just put the little Aweber thing in there either like I'm really new to this. I am not like an expert. I get it like I don't know, I really do. I'm still learning so I appreciate you giving me those tips, because I had no idea.

Dave: Yeah, and I understand you wanting to transition into and have your own site. I think that when you lose an account you start looking around and going, Okay, What other shit can I lose. Like, what else can people take from me? And so you want to transition in, you know from maybe a click funnels to a blog that you own on your domain or you want, like there's like you start thinking about how can I, you know, if that's more of your strategy matches that as well, like your strategy matches having a blog and a website to where you can post more long form articles or post to where you can give more information and people can essentially read things sort of like they would read, read news on tmz.com

Bre: Yeah, I appreciate that and I definitely think about it because, yeah, I don't want to stop collecting emails.

Dave: You shouldn't. And I would, I would even potentially, I would even potentially, if I was you, I would take the links up at the top and I would just drive them directly to a landing page, and I would make some, some irresistible offer for them to opt in to that page, and then once they opted in, I would have links to all those products.

Bre: Yeah, that's definitely what I was doing at the beginning because I was like, Oh, you'll get email updates and people like it. People are crazy like they just want to know where he's at and that want to know that. So that's what I was doing initially but like I said, in this process of transition. It's a lot of learning to, you know, it takes time to like okay, sit back, okay what do I need to learn and what do I need to get going here. So that was definitely where I was going, that's how I built the email list initially.

Dave: How many emails did you generate so far?

Bre: I would say like 3000. 

Dave: Wow. You don't want to stop collecting enough from these people. I mean because they're so willing to give you their email address, and you could so easily, every day, send out an email, which would, if you want to blog you need to work on the written content. So on top of, and that's your whole business right if you're going to continue down this path of marketing to artists or musicians audiences, and you remember you could duplicate this right you could duplicate this win if you, and there's many out there. Other artists, musicians who have fanatical followings. But if you're going to be blogging right if you're going to be writing content on a blog, one of the best things you can do right now is begin to practice writing, and I know most people think well I know how to write, but writing succinctly, Clear, concise, and persuasively, with comedy humor stories sprinkled in is an art. It's not just a science, not just something that, oh, I'll do that when I'm ready. No, it's something that you work on and get better as you go. And so right now, if I was in your shoes, I would drive everybody in all of my content, just simply opt in to my landing page, and then I would offer all those free kind of swag and recommended cool stuff on the on the on the thank you page, but everyday or every other day or at a certain set time of the week, right, I would send out a weekly newsletter, or a daily newsletter, write daily, daily Morgan update whatever. And in that email, practice my writing tell the story deliver the news deliver the drama, whatever, but it also gives me an opportunity to make a call to action in put more product in front of these people's face every single day and it's proven, at least in my career, that people buy more from email than anywhere else. It's just for some reason, it's just like people go to their email to do business, I feel like, whereas they go to social media to socialize and scroll. I think we get lucky that people buy so much from social media. But, you know, it's just another place that you have an opportunity to be able to put something in front of somebody's face, and it's also easy if they can't do it right then for them to go back into their inbox, and pull up that email, and find it and follow through with what they wanted to do, like, bought, like maybe they're standing in line and they see the email, they wanted to buy that iPhone cover, but then they get called on, it's easy to go back to the email and pull up that email and find that link, versus go find that video that they saw on social media. Does that make sense?

Bre: Yeah. Yeah absolutely and I'm really green. I'm like a new baby, marketers, so all these tips are amazing. I really appreciate you sharing them with me.

Dave: Yeah, well, thanks for doing the initial work to make it so I could give you feedback. I mean, that's one of the biggest challenges in this in this kind of whole process here is that it's difficult to coach somebody while they're still on the bench but it's easy to coach somebody while they're on the field, because they're taking swings, you can step back and look at what they're doing, and for you to have met you know taking just absolutely this is what we talk about guys when we talk about taking action. Take, we all get tired of hearing, take action, pick action take action, but this is the, this is what can happen. Firstly, your dreams expand, you make money, you get results, you get excited to get fired up. But then also, if you're a, if you're in a community like this, you have stuff that we can give you feedback on. You know what I mean, which is like, that's how the whole coaching process works and I think the reason why people get burned out on coaching is because a coach needs a player. Yeah, you pay me to coach somebody who's on the bed so I think that that's the part that we play as clients and customers, it's sort of like I was talking to my therapist yesterday, I come to those calls who act as a coach for me. Right, I and I have multiple coaches I have a couple of my life right now, and I come to them, ready to work, and I come to them and I say this is what I've done over the past two weeks, and I come, I came to my man yesterday and said, Look, I made a commitment, two weeks ago, I didn't do it. I didn't follow up on it. Here's how I felt, here's why I think I did it. Here's the field that I had, and I want to bring it. I want to be accountable for it and work on it and process it, man. A coach can work with that.

Bre: Yeah, that'd be coachable. Absolutely. Yeah, and don't be afraid to try what they're saying, like, what's the worst that could happen, it doesn't work. Okay, well, you're exactly where you were before you tried it right. I mean, chances are it's going to work if you execute properly but I know I've stopped thinking about what could go wrong, but think about what could go right, you know like, stop, stop selling yourself short. 

Dave: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I mean, and taking responsibility, I mean, like I see so many people who, and I'm looking at one of the comments Suhana says I bought get rich quick programs but, and I'm not calling you out or trying to embarrass you, but it's like, what I learned is, and what I've what i've what I've like seen over 10 years in this industry is that most people buy things and don't do anything with them. You know, like, there's literally nothing that I've bought that I didn't learn something from, even if it was marketed as a scam yes thing and it was like it was mostly BS. Like, I still found something that I just like taking total responsibility for my success, not anybody else's responsibility to come to my house and sit next to me and coach me and get me up off the couch and point out things for me. Well, did you notice this did you learn this, did you see this did you try that, like that's my responsibility and that's the, that's the responsibility if I buy a gym membership, it's not the gyms responsibility to bring the equipment to my house, it's my responsibility to go to the gym and workout and nobody ever buys a gym membership and says, Yeah, I bought a get get ripped fast program and it didn't work like we don't do that, right, because there because gyms have been around for a long time, the internet's new and selling information is new and in this is, it's such a it's, it's such a typical common thing for people to say, well, in the easy thing to say, well I got scammed. Right. I don't have to take any responsibility if I say that right I could just blame it on you. Right. I bought your program, and I didn't do anything with it, and it's just, it was a scam. Right. It wasn't a scam I wasn't scared. I'll tell you what a scam. College is a scam. Taxes are a scam. Right, there's a lot of shit that you do every day, willingly your job in many respects is a scheme. You could look at it and say, I'm showing up to this, I'm driving, two hours, air each way every day to go and bust my ass, to you know make minimum wage. Well this a holes out on a yacht every other business skit right. We don't call it a skit, we call it a job. We're grateful to have a job, right. So, I mean, I'm going to get down off of my soapbox here, but, but, you know, I just I say all this to praise you, to praise you, to say, you did this, you went out there and took action, you're on the show because we noticed you because you're kicking some serious tail, and doing some cool stuff, and you hit me up and say, ou know what I want my $7 back, you know, I see people who literally call their credit card companies over $7 It's like you didn't get $7 worth of value. In the end, you couldn't, you want to refi you couldn't just email customer support, and just say, Oh well, but $7 back well I'll mail you a check. I'll put, I'll put $10 and quarter's in your house, like I don't want your $7 you know what I mean. So, well, I'm going to call my credit card company right now and get my $7 back. Who has time for that?

Bre: I have been amazed, like that's another thing too about going viral. I always feel like How cool it would be to go viral, you'll see how many miserable people there are in the world and it's just mind blowing. How many haters there are for no reason. So, yeah, definitely.

Dave: I love talking about making money online and I'm saying that I can show you some tips and tricks, but you don't have to buy my shit. You don't have to come in, sign up, I'm not coming to your house and say, pulling out a nine millimeter and saying, Cornell spent $7 Like, it's like, don't buy it you know who you are, you know that when you buy stuff, You have a tendency to be skeptical and look, he's just, look, I mean, obviously, this is 10 years worth of dealing with this and that's where this is coming from, it's not right I get fired up over this, but what I mostly get fired up over, is when I see somebody like you. Oh excuses, who just, it's like,

what, it's just like, you know, I want to do this. It's either I want to do it or not, I mean it's like, why waste your time completely complaining and bitching and moaning and whining. If you're not going to do anything with it just move on with it. The other thing I tell people is, Maybe you weren't cut out to be an entrepreneur, maybe this isn't for you. This isn't for everybody. We're not sitting around trying to convince everybody that this is easy. It's like this shit takes work, you have some hustle, you gotta have some hard. You clearly got that girl. 

Bre: Thanks Dave.

Dave: Well, any final words for the folks out there that are sitting on the fence today wondering if today's gonna be the day that I go out there and start kicking some major ass.

Bre: Yeah I would say just go for it, just, you have, you have nothing to lose, you have everything to gain. Don't be afraid of what people think about you, or what people say, just don't just don't hold back because the longer you wait, like, for, for me, obviously I lost a lot of money that it could have made, Had I acted sooner, but I just, I honestly was a little bit skeptical I didn't know if this was going to work, but don't wait, because you're going to, you're going to lose more money waiting, than if you just invest in yourself now.

Dave: Well, you are a rock star. And, yeah, I hope it's dude reaches out to you like asking me to come and work from, I hope you're like, Nah, bro. You know what I mean like I'm not even, like, all out, you can hire me. Right, but I got I'm running my own business here. I mean, I'm running my own business here, because you know that you got a lot of potential and a lot of opportunity that's ahead of you, just simply because of the way you approach things and the way you take the bull by the horns and start rocking it so, keep up the good work and let me know if there's anything I or we can do for you, and we'll have you back if you'd be willing to come on okay. Bre: Thank you guys so much, you guys have a great day. 

Dave: Alright see you Bre. 

Bre: Bye! 

Dave: Alright my friends go and follow her for sure you really, I mean just a rock star is so worth having in your network and learning from and getting a different perspective on how to build this business and do affiliate marketing.

How To Make Money Online With Free Traffic

Click for free training

Dave: What's going on, my friends, this is Dave Sharpe Welcome to Wake Up Legendary we have yet another exciting guest all the way from India currently living in Australia, please everyone on this beautiful Monday morning, help me welcome Yamini what's going on Yamini?

Yamini: Hi Dave, how are you, thank you so much for having me here. 

Dave: Oh, you're very welcome. You're very welcome. Well, we're excited to hear from you and talk about marketing with you. So tell us a little bit about how you got started, you know what led you to Legendary, what have you learned along the process give us a little bit of just kind of who you are in a nutshell.

Yamini: Okay, so basically as you're told I'm from India and I am a student here in Melbourne, Australia. And, like I lost my job during COVID, in 2020, and since March, like, I didn't have any job I was doing like random jobs like food delivery and the services. So, it was like, I was always finding a way, like, if I say like way back when I was 17 I lost my father. So since then, I have been trying to find a way to do business. My father was a businessman so that came from him. So, like, then when I lost my job, I felt like noticing it was not safe to do nine to five at all. So I had to do something else. And that Job didn't start for nine months. And I was just doing random things and I was trolling TikTok, and then I found some was doing this course. And then I thought, okay, let's give it a go. So when I started this course I was like, because I'm, I have a marketing background I did MLM, so I was like, Okay, let's give it a go and when I started learning, I understood the concept and it was like blowing my mind. Oh my god, how is it that it can be to start a business, like, then from there on my journey started in January, and since then, I'm making good money and learning as well. And yes, this course really helped me a lot. I really wanted to thank you personally, I was so excited, really, thank you so much. Thank you so much for making this opportunity for our students, because due to working right. We cannot even make like more than 2000 in a month. So, this opportunity is making your ID dreams come true.

Dave: Wow. No, that's great. Thank you for saying that. Are you now making enough to go full time? Are you making enough from your own good business to be able to provide for your life, full time?

Yamini: When I started this business, I was doing a pizza delivery to be honest, and, like, like one month, we didn't like it. When I started this journey I will take that job, and within one month I left that job because I started seeing results from here. So, if I say this month like before 10th of this month, I was already up above 10k. So I was like, I don't want to go back to that job, so of course I do this business, like full time now. 

Dave: I don't like nice people and I want to just give a disclosure to everybody. The average person who starts any business online makes no money at all. The average person who buys any course makes no money at all. And the reason why that is is because usually they don't do anything with it. And sometimes it's, you know, just the law of averages is not everybody's going to be successful with something but I asked you that because, you know, you've got a lot of odds against you, you know, you're, you're, you're primarily marketing to I would think in English speaking as their first language. Probably most, a lot of people in the UK in America. And, and I would assume, English is English your first language?

Yamini: No it's not. I have Punjabi and Hindi. 

Dave: You're 22 years old, right 26 You're currently where you did you say you're in college. I guess I'm fighting right now. Good. You were a pizza delivery person when you started. Right. Okay, you're a female. Also, you can make it even more. I mean, I'm a male I don't know what it's like to be female, but I can only imagine that, you know, the harassment, the, you know guys think they can talk to women any kind of way they want. So, you know, that's just the nature of so many men, unfortunately. I can only imagine, I know what it's I know how women are treated in pert in real life with guys gawking at them and making comments and stuff like that I can only imagine when guys get a little internet courage, they probably say all kinds of crazy stuff to women online, and act weird and creepy and stuff like that so you're, you're a woman. You're, you're from India you're living in, in a country that you didn't grow up in. Is that right, you don't have any family around you right now. No. Okay, so here's why I'm saying all of this is because for those of you who are listening, who are thinking, and who have all of these reasons why you can't be successful. Well sometimes when we compare ourselves to other people we put all of our odds in all of the things that are stacked against us and all of our problems on the table, and then the person next to us, does the same thing and then the person so if we were all just pretend we were all sitting at a round table, and we all put all of our odds and problems and challenges on the table that we thought were so bad when, when we see what other people are dealing with a lot of times we take our problems back and we say, who I don't want your problems, I'll take my problems. And so everybody who's listening. If you're not inspired by that, if you're not inspired by the fact that, you know Yamini has all of these different obstacles that she's overcoming and being successful regardless. And from what I know about you, you're a hustler too, I mean you're, you're, you know you're not afraid to go out there and put yourself out there and create content and create value so talk to us a little bit about your mindset around this, how are you able to, you know, how are you able to do what you're doing, how do you view your business and how are you, how were you able to overcome being new, and get started delivering value and speaking confidently about what you are marketing

Yamini: Based on, first of all, I think that when you're coming to the marketing market with the concept, we must have that knowledge to give to people right before we are coming to, like, any market we should gain full knowledge about that product or anything. When I started learning, I felt like it's so good. And it was easy to understand the concept. And I like the way you're teaching, right, so that's why I studied, like before coming to market I researched poorly about this one. So then I started in the business so that, like, and another thing, while I was living Pisa, my hands in the morning I literally saw, and that was my motivation like no avenue, like you have to just do something else, like when you get my, you should have a passive income that you can spend time with your family. Right now, I'm making a really good income. I don't know, like people who are beginners, whether they make or not, but I am making enough income that I can go back with my family to India. But still, like, I want to grow more in this business, and this is something I have in mind. My target is, like I make my target like I have to achieve this goal and this much of time, like, whether it's take up followers, whether it's income, whether anything so maybe that mindset, like because I really want passive income that mindset is taking me to the level where I want to load income, I just work work work every day, every day I walked into a total electron 11am here so just I'm putting in work, and plans are coming by cells so I just see my messages are popping off Commission's here there, but I really don't care about that I just book and do trainings every day that maybe when I have knowledge, when people come to the ask any question I have right away answered. It does the thing. Taking me forward. Yeah because I found that. Whenever someone's talking to me I was like, how am I answering each and every question. Like, that way I feel okay so the knowledge I'm gaining from the code whenever people ask me anything I'm ready to answer so that is the one reason I'm doing quickly. 

Dave: Wow, that's a really great answer and it's really insightful. You know, because I think I think some, I think so many of us when we start out, we don't give ourselves enough credit to actually answer questions and think that we have enough value and knowledge to actually teach and actually answer people's questions and to actually coach people, but if you can't do that then, then, what value are you to other people. There's a couple of different ways, there's basically two ways that people can be of value to people. The first way is to have a product. I'm selling a product I have sunglasses, and so I have this product and I can sell it to you for a good price, and I'm, I'm a value to you say I have watches, I'm selling watches, and I can, I can give you a watch that you want at a price that you want, whatever product any kind of product. The second way that I can be a value to somebody, is I have knowledge, knowledge that can help them get what they want. So, if I don't have a product, if I'm not selling a product. Okay. The other way that I am of sort of value to people I'm talking about in business everybody, not in personal relationships, but in business, this, the only other way that I can really be a value to somebody, is to have knowledge, that, that I can coach, or I can point them in the right direction or I can answer their questions, so that if we think about it, just like you just said in those simple terms, then I need to, I have to. Even if I'm a beginner, I have to step into a mindset to where I'm ready to answer people's questions. And if I don't know the answer. So let me ask you this. What if you what if somebody asks you something and you don't have experience with it or you don't know the answer to it. How do you respond to them while still being confident?

Yamini: Okay, so I usually say them. Okay, so it's been a while, like if someone asked like question which we do in the beginning it's been five months in the business so if they ask any question that I'm not aware of it, then I just tell them like, Okay, that's a really good question that I've never heard of. Okay, give me some time, I'll get back to you as soon as possible, because whenever someone joins business through me, I stay in touch. To be honest, I just stay in touch so that I can add value into their life, like, I don't want to sell something, which I don't know about or like about, and I just keep telling them to keep bringing, bring the question so that I can learn more. So I just take time from them and then think about that and give them the right answer. I don't give them the wrong answer like, I just don't want to prove myself right that I know everything. But anyway, we are human beings that don't like everything right, I just take time, and then I just research about it and tell them how we can solve that.

Dave: Yeah, I love that, I mean it's so you're making it you make it so simple and it's, it's really.

The other thing that I want to point out. The other thing that I want to point out is that so many of us come online, we want to start an online business and we just want to have passive income. Right. But the truth is that passive income doesn't really exist, the only way to, now I've got a couple of passive income sources, I've got some investments in the stock market. I've got some investments in real estate, but the truth is that my most passive investment is probably stocks that I own, because I don't really do anything with those, you know, I have to make a decision if I want to sell at some point. But that's, there's not really much that I have to do now real estate. There's tenants, there's, there's ongoing some people would call real estate passive rental properties that my wife and I own, it's not passive. It's passive some of the time, but you got to buy the house, you got to fix the house, you got to get it rented or sold ready, you've got to find tenants, you've got to then do maintenance, you've got to then they move out. It's passive probably 75% of the time, if you find good tenants right now. Now I don't consider my online business a passive income stream. I don't. It's my active income stream, because it's an active income stream, right, because look what I'm doing right now. This is something that I'm doing for our business here, and I do it every single day of the week. I also write copy, I lead a team of 80 plus people on calls and make tough decisions and build, you know build webinars and deliver training and all this kind of stuff. It's an active income stream, and in what you just mentioned about having relationships with your customers, people that buy through your, your links, is if you go into it with that mentality and this is for all of you who are new, so you have the right expectations about what Active and Passive income is, you just said something really key. I like to keep in touch, I like to have, basically what you said was I like to have a relationship with my customer. That's a big deal. I think that's a lot of things that you may need that a lot of people don't want to do, or they just don't know that it's a good idea to do it because they want passive income, but they're not looking for it. They're not looking for passive income in the right place. Our business that we build and run every day that creates cash flow for us is active income, and then we can take the money that we earn, and we can invest that into stocks or crypto or real estate, which can create passive income. Does that make sense to you, and, and what comes up for you as I'm as I'm talking about this difference between active and passive?

Yamini: With the right thing because this was obviously we had fluctuations, right, and that's totally I totally agree with you, like using right like yes, this is the activity going on and we can earn money and then invest, and then that is our passive income. You don't even have to work for this like you said, like you're working every day. And we are not working for you.

Dave: I think a lot of people come into this business thinking well I'm going to get out of my job, like you, I'm going to I'm going to get out of my pizza delivery job, and I'm going to I'm going to come into this I'm going to spend a little bit of money. I'm going to set a couple of things up and it's just going to run on autopilot for me. Right. And, and anybody in everybody who has that mindset, or that expectation going into this always fails, that is a what, let me just speak directly to everybody who's listening, that is 100% of the time a recipe for you to fail, if that is your expectation, one, like just you heard it here first. Now, can you, and you're a great example of what can happen. You went from delivering pizzas, your hands were sore, making probably very little money to now making more money than you've ever made before working from the comfort of your home, your hands no longer hurt, the quality of your life is much better, but you're still working every day. Right. Yes. I'm working for it, and you're working a lot, I would assume you're working many hours throughout the day right?

Yamini: I'm happy to do this with happiness. This is making me happy. Before the work I was doing, it was not like there was a nice night every single night. Now I'm so happy whatever I'm doing, even if I'm not sleeping, that makes me happy. I watch it every day. I sleep into it and that makes me happy. So, I know that, as long as it makes me happy. 

Dave: Yeah and I think that's important, because it's like, it's like, as long as we have the right expectations and we know what we're getting into, then we, we have a we have a chance to really succeed, you know, and so that's why I think it's important for us to really look at the difference between active and passive income so we have the right expectations when we go into building any business, this one especially. 

Yamini: And you made a great point. I went from being sad every minute of every day working delivering pizzas to now I'm happy it's off. I'm working hard, but I'm happy every day. Yeah.

And like every single day, to be honest, I think like, oh my god what I did right this year, like, I thank you every day to realize, because I literally saved that much. Like last year, if I say my earning was half, then the only guy on in four months. It wasn't easy. They think young people are earning 10k a month and we can do the same thing. It wasn't easy. I worked hard for this one, but still, like, that helped me a lot, like, yeah, it changed my life.

Dave: That's amazing. That's amazing. So you're doing all of this with free traffic, 

Yamini: 100% free traffic. I didn't run out. 

Dave: Well, that's incredible. So, what you are mostly using TikTok is that primarily you are also getting, Like what would you how would you break down the percentage of where your traffic is coming from, like, TikTok YouTube etc.

Yamini: Okay, so my main platform is TikTok, so from TikTok I'm taking to YouTube, and then I use Facebook and I personally like Facebook, because marketing on Facebook is way easier than on TikTok, because in the groups, people are already those who are interested in business and on TikTok, we have to like figure out who is actually a business person, right. So, if I can say like 50% of traffic comes from TikTok and then 40 from Facebook and then 10 from YouTube because I don't use that when it was still YouTube is bringing is not my sales for my software's like get your spot and Clickfunnels I made videos about all of them, and that's bringing me sales, which I really like, that's the best kind of passive income still everyday I get sales for that because of my that video, and Facebook, I use a tool that is totally free, we generate trainings, but that will help us to raise to the more properly. So, did you say you're using Facebook? So it's an email, messenger Pro. So, that is a tool to work on Facebook, where we can generate leads, without spending money on ads. So, we can actually target our audience, like we can know actually, these people are in this group interested in the business, and then we can contact them and we can help them.

Dave: Well, I mean, you know, and also just, you know, just for anybody who's listening common sense would also tell you that Facebook, you can type in, and I break this down in the blueprints, under the Facebook marketing section, you know, you can also type in affiliate marketing or network marketing or make money online, just write into the search bar and it will bring up tons of different groups with 10’s of 1000’s of people that you can go in and you can add value into those groups by answering questions and by, you know, making posts that are valuable to people and, you know, for me, you know, the strategy on Facebook to where everybody just, you know, private messages everybody who makes a post in a group and tries to sell them something their messenger is sort of a sort of a, you know, it's sort of like a kind of a spammy way to market online. If you're providing some sort of value like answering questions, it's amazing. Like, I think a lot of people underestimate how many friend requests and how attractive it is. How many people would want to follow you and be your friends and then all of a sudden they're seeing your content and on the Facebook timeline. If you just come in and leave a valuable comment on a post, like, just leave a valuable comment, it's just amazing because if you look at every post in most Facebook groups they're all shitty comments, they're all just, you know, they're all like somebody post a question and then everybody's like following her yeah I wonder about this too or whatever, or there are people just, there's no comments. And if you actually just come on to a post and just leave a valuable comment that takes like 45 seconds for you to type out, I'd be absolutely amazed by how many people would then, you know, go over to your profile and friend requests you and then become kind of like a fan of yours from one single comment.

Yamini: This is how I like people to get to know me on Facebook. And, like I was when I was doing like whenever there is no I was just like I have so many groups of people who are asking questions in the group, but I was the first person to text and reply that come in. So if they feel like taking help from me, they come and pick up from me. So yeah, I do, like many things like hello and these things, I just helped them out. So, we can actually give them services right for whatever we know. Yeah, that will really help me a lot so I just connect with people from Facebook, I like Facebook more than TikTok, to be honest, I noticed. I noticed it was a really quick copy. If you need a very good customer that's on Facebook.

Dave: Well, that's interesting. That's interesting. Well I think having a combination of two I mean, like, if we're if we're honest, how long does it take to record a TikTok video if you're not going to be a total perfectionist I mean, you know, it doesn't take that long, you know, I mean if you want to sit there and reverted 1000 times then yeah it'll take all day, but I mean, if you, you know, most of the time, most videos that do really well for people are ones that they just recorded quickly and threw up there, you know what I mean, like we're the one that you spend 1000 hours trying to edit it. 

Yamini: Right, exactly, that did happen. Late in the beginning when I throw a video without even thinking I get like tons of views. And when I make a video like, Okay, I like this video, when I post that video that doesn't have a view either What if people don't like my choice, or what we don't matter. 

Dave: Yeah, I don't know why but yeah, pretty thing that I've always done that I was like, Oh, this is a masterpiece, I mean people are gonna love this was like crickets you know like dead tumbleweeds like nobody, nobody even acknowledged it it was it was as if it didn't exist right and then I do something that I just pull out of my ass. You know it's like takes me 15 You know, sales letters that I've written videos that I've shot things that I've just done sort of off the cuff from the heart from the top of my head, just did, you know, I put them out there and it's like freakin blow up and explode and it's just, it's weird. So, back to my point, you can put up a couple of TikToks, two, three, TikTok videos and a half an hour, you know, every day, and then what are you going to do with the rest of your day it's like, you know, sure you can record a YouTube video, get it up but I mean most people are not posting a YouTube video every day, right, you're probably posting a video once or twice a week, am I right. 

Yamini: So, I do it. 

Dave: You do it every day?

Yamini: I do every day, because, like I, my, this is my full time job right now. I tell people as well. If you want to establish your business and on TikTok, if you post five to six times every day, five to six videos every day. Like there's no chance to fail. Seriously,

Dave: Everybody listen closely to what just happened. So I'm like, you know, three, three TikTok videos a day, and you know most people do one to two YouTube videos a week if that and she's like, I do a video every day. I do six on TikTok, and I do one on YouTube and I'm on Facebook all day long. This is my full time job . I treat this like my full time job. I'm the number one employee inside of my business. I'm the number one employee inside of my business. So why, why am I wait making, you know more in half of in two months that I made the entire year delivering pizzas, because no Dave I'm not uploading three videos per day on TikTok I'm doing six no Dave I'm not I'm not uploading one to two videos per week on YouTube, I'm uploading a video a day. No Dave I'm not, you know, just focusing on one platform I'm doing all that and I'm over on Facebook, generating leads, having conversations delivering value.

Yamini: I do a lot of work every day, that's bringing evidence, and that's making me happy, like on TikTok I really post every, if I'm not well. Still I post every day. I'm out, I'm on trade. I come home at night, I post like this, I feel like this is my work and I have to do it every day. I skipped one day. I'll be behind for one day of my business. So, I do this every day and I send 40 to 50 requests to new people every day. I post YouTube videos one to two times a week because I don't know why I'm listening to YouTube videos, that's where I like what is working for me. And the Twitter archive account as well so I post, tweet, tweet, like, two to three people there, I get so many customers from Twitter as well. Oh, and then many platforms, other platforms so, like, a whole new level, talking. 

Dave: I don't know if it's because, like, the work ethic, it's it's like, it's like, seems like it's different with people who are like not American, honestly, like for some reason, like, you know, I've met a lot of people from India, for example, who just worked their ass off, who just who just worked circles around people for and I don't know why that is, I don't, I don't. And I'm not trying to say Americans don't work hard. I love American, I'm American, I'm from America. I've been, I've lived here all my life I love America, but it's just like the way in which, like I've had developers and stuff in the past I've had virtual assistants who have been like in the Philippines or who we have some great people who are from at least one, Roxie on our team who's, I believe, from the Philippines she's, she's incredible works her ass off, it's unbelievable. It's just, where did you get the work ethic from, where can you tell us a little bit about how you learned that was something that was shown to you by somebody, is it where is that coming from that drive inside of you?

Yamini: So, I was only 17 When I lost my model, and we were having a really really great business, we were having good money, like, but when we lost our father, he was the only one doing that vision. My brother didn't know anything about that. And I was too young to do that. My sister was married, we had three siblings so, like, from there, like I was studying as well. I was in my first semester, and when I saw my father working. I was always like, since my childhood I want you to be a businesswoman, like, I want to do a business I don't do job at all, but circumstances like we have to anyway start from zero, then, because we need money for business right so I started my journey where I worked two months for free just to learn. Then I started working for a job, I was a teacher, I worked in a MLM company. I did a cleaning job in Melbourne, I did fundraising in Melbourne for two and a half years. That Job was like, we have to stand on streets, and ask people for charity, right, two and a half years when it's summer whenever it's been there. Now I might have noticed that if I'm holding this business today, I have to stand on the street. Oh my god. No, do it, wake up and do it. That's, like, we just knew the perfect thing to do that. And now I believe this is the best thing, and I don't want to lose this man, and I work hard for this every day because of opportunities. You bet, very rare in your life, like I was 17 and now I'm 26. After nine years I bought this opportunity to make money. So nine years of my life I did a job. That's why, like maybe that's the thing, which brings fire in is that okay now we go, something that can actually give us some good life. So we have to do it now.

Dave: But it wasn't like you were successful in previous business ventures right i mean you literally came right out of delivering pizzas right into doing this.

Yamini: No, no, so I was doing mmm like that pyramid scheme for one and a half years. I did that, and even I was earning, like whatever I did, I never lost something I was doing good. I don't know if I leave rain or mine, that comes from your parents. My parents are very supportive. My mom right now, even, like, they're very supportive, every time this poor me whatever I do okay do it, try, you know, there's nothing to lose. Just go and try and rebuild everything, whatever you want. So I did, like everything, even this job, which I did in Melbourne, that was also marketing. I learned so many things from there, which is working for this one. All my last, like when COVID started.

Dave: Vernalisi, made a comment, women have safety nets here like other countries, you have to make it happen or no checks period. And that's kind of an interesting comment. Because in America. For example, you know during COVID, they sent out checks, did they do that in India, did they send out checks to the government, send out checks to people or are they sending out checks to people through COVID?

Yamini: No, not at all like, like here in Australia if I bought it for COVID test it’s free. In India you have to pay for COVID test, everything is poor like the government, like they don't even give you food because maybe I don't know what was the issue but yeah. No, we didn't have any. 

Dave: It's interesting, it's interesting. I'm not saying that America or India or whatever is good or bad. I don't want to make this political, but what if, what if, what if you didn't have any fallbacks What if when you lost your job or if you lost your job, you couldn't just go down and file for unemployment in India, if you lose a job. Can you go and file for unemployment, is that something that exists to where they give you money for so long after you lose your job. 

Yamini: No. 

Dave: All right, so sometimes we don't. And this is one of the things that I've learned, traveling in different countries all over the world is that people live very differently than how we live, for example how you live wherever you're from. So maybe you're from India you come to America, you're like oh my gosh, right, or you go to from America, you go to Somalia, or you go to Ukraine, or you go to, you go to India, you go to Bangladesh and it's like, oh my gosh, like what a completely different way of living. So my question to all of you who have been struggling to find the drive and the motivation that self drive and  that self motivation to stay with it. What if you didn't have any safety net. What if you didn't have a safety net? What if, if you did not work to create that you literally starved. There was no unemployment, there were no checks that you could get from the government. There was no family that could help you out, there were no friends that could help you out. But specifically, whatever, whatever sort of benefits that you've gotten from, say for example, the government what if those like for many people in America, if you earned under a certain amount of income through COVID You got a check for, I don't know, I didn't get the check, but it was, it was something like a couple of $1,000 I think maybe it was 1200 I can't remember what it was. But if you earned under a certain amount of money you would get, you got a check and I think they sent those checks out twice. And if you had two people in your household you would get two checks, right or if you had more kids you would get even more money than that. What if that didn't happen? What if that didn't exist? My question to you basically is what if there was no plan B. What if there was no safety net. Right, it's hard to kind of pretend like that. But here's the truth: it's some people's reality. It sounds like it's your reality, like and especially after your father died. You didn't even have a, you didn't even think that was going to take care of you now you are completely and totally all that. That's a difficult place to be in what you did as you stepped up and you said. You said hey, you know, I gotta do it.

Yamini: I mean, I, yeah, I'm going out of India and I'm doing. Yeah that's what I had been saving, I invested that for my education. I came here because I know that Australia is very different from India. I know what are the positive points, and I know I like America as well. That's why you will see so many people migrating from India here. Well it's not with every job, they have government jobs separately they have private jobs, but you have, you don't have any benefit in private jobs and government jobs are not easy to do.

Dave: Yeah. So Brad says people from other countries do so well here in the United States of America because they see and do what has to be done to take advantage of the opportunities. Most of us here in the US take it for granted. Now, I have to agree with that, as an American I have to agree with that, I have a barber who, who, who, who came here from Cuba, he, he, he fled Cuba, went on a boat to Mexico, and then got into America back in 2015 I don't know the full story I, or all the kind of details I just know we came up into Las Vegas and then somehow got his citizenship, but it just as he's like kind of telling the story. I'm just thinking about what he was talking about like the boat and everything that he wrote in on. And it's like he literally put his life on the line, he literally, and I was reading about a boxer an athlete, the other day who did the same thing like he came over on a boat in New Mexico, and lives in Mexico right now, it's just my question for everybody this morning as we're listening to your mini story and about the things that she's that she's gone through and overcome and our work ethic is success leaves clues, and sometimes even if we, we can't eliminate the plan B, you know, you, you live where you live and we, for me, I'm grateful to live in America. But I think there's a mentality that we can have which is I'm not going to accept help anymore. I'm not going to ask for help anymore. I'm not gonna, I'm not gonna expect anybody else to do anything for me. That doesn't mean I have to you know be so prideful, but I think there is a little bit of riding right there is a little bit of pride in entrepreneurship to where you say, I'm going to, you know, I'm going to go out and, you know, I'm going to create something that, that I'm proud of I'm going to be self made in a sense, right, and that's, that's honestly the path that you're on and I think that that's, I think that that's a noble thing to do and it's clearly working right it's clearly working works, and that's why mindset is 90% of this game, because you can figure stuff out as you go right I mean you can figure it out as you go. You don't have the right mindset. You have to have the right mindset. Well, listen, I, I'm proud of you and super happy for you and it's been really inspiring to talk to you this morning and thank you for sharing your, your authentic story and what you've been through and hopefully everybody's walking away from this episode inspired on this Monday morning, the same way that I am, to not take things for granted, to not take opportunity for granted, to, to eliminate the 15 minutes that we have to throw them out the window and say, You know what I am going to, I'm going to, to, to, I'm going to create something out of thin air, I'm going to, I'm going to I'm going to build a business, with the help and support of my, my family and my friends here in entrepreneurship, but I'm not gonna, I'm not gonna sit around in complain about a life that I'm not doing anything to change, right, I'm gonna stop that, starting today, because what we have to realize and this is the tough truth is that everything that we have, we've manifested that we've tested that right and that and that becomes proven and the thing that I love about this business and having this community is that we have, we get to talk to people from all over the world. Here you are from India living in Australia, you get to give us a perspective about what it's like in a different part of the world to come up with no handouts with no with, with, with no very little way your father passed away. You sure you have family support, but it's probably not obviously not financial now you're supporting your family. Right. It's just a powerful thing for us to be able to see that because it sort of eliminates our excuses so thank you for that this morning.

Yamini: And I just want to say, like everyone life in India and here if you compare it's way harder, right, whatever you have, like, take advantage of that and grow into your life. Right. Right now, if we say, like, if there are a lot of legs, live the current example, like right now, the COVID situation was that bad. Like, they didn't have beds. I lost a few of my family members, right outside of that country like not only in India there are so many other countries like that, where, like, the facilities are not that good but yeah, please take advantage of what you have in people in America, Canada, Australia, you guys are so lucky. And I'm really happy to be here like outside so that I can actually because we all have something special in us, right. So, actually we just need something to bring that sparkle out from us, and you have every opportunity available in your country so take advantage of that and follow them, which is amazing. And you can be making good money. Oh, good.

Dave: Well, thank you so much for just telling your story and doing what you did. Up until this point to be able to come on here and tell that story this morning. You guys can follow you. I'll put her TikTok and YouTube stuff here up as I close out the show, hopefully you'll come back and keep us posted here in a couple of months on how your journeys stay Legendary. All right, and I'll talk to you soon. 

Yamini: Thank you so much. 

Dave: All right. Bye. All right, well, there it is. It's just amazing. It's amazing what is possible. And it's fun to talk about it, it's cool to talk about it, you know, motivational speeches and stuff like that and and go in and you know go to some event and hear some motivational speaker, you know, get you jumping up and down and, and tell you you can do it, and then it's like, like we tune into a show an episode like this just some random couple of webcams a couple of people sitting in different parts of the world, and somebody is telling their story about basically coming from. Unbelievable odds, and it just, it strikes a chord with me anyways I don't know about you but it strikes a chord with me to make me want to work that much harder today to make me want to have that much more gratitude today to make me want to take things for granted, just a little bit less today to make me want to appreciate the people that I have in my life still if I still have my father or my mother, you know, in my life today, right, because, again, as I said in the beginning of this episode if we put all of our problems on the table next to lots of different people from lots of different places of the world, and we see what they're dealing with what they're up against the obstacles and the odds that they have to overcome to be successful. A lot of times, we take our problems back and we say, No, I'll take my problems, they aren't as bad as I thought. And so, sometimes, in my hope it is this time this morning. This episode is that for you to give you that motivation, not just to jump up and down and say I can do it I can do it I can do it I can do it but to see it to hear it, to experience it from somebody else whose problems and obstacles may have been and may be more difficult than yours, right, and that's okay, because in a way they were more difficult than mine. Okay. I grew up in America. I grew up in, in the, in the richest country in the world. Right. And a lot of times even somebody who's poor in America is richer than somebody who's, who's living middle class in some of these other countries that are not even remotely as wealthy as America. And so that's why, as Brad said in the comment a few minutes ago. The reason why a lot of times people succeed here in America who come from other countries is because they see the opportunity that sometimes we don't see just blind to it's just right under our nose the whole time. And so my question to you is what opportunity is in front of you that you've just been ignoring, that's just right there it's waiting for you to grab it it's waiting for you to, It's waiting for you to seize it. It's just you just blind to it because it's always been there. It's always been there, so it's kind of just blends in now it's kind of like the couch you don't even notice it in your house, it's just, you expect it to be there every time you come home you sit down, there's not a, oh my god, you know there's a couch there I know some people who are living in dirt huts, it's matter of fact I was down in Mexico before COVID And I was, you know, there was a certain they were living in circular houses we drove to a town there was circular houses with, with all these doors open, and the reason why they had circular houses because they could keep the doors and windows open, so the wind could blow through the house and cool the house down. There was not a single piece of carpet, there wasn't even a concrete slab, it was just dirt inside of the house. And when I come home every day I expect there to be carpet on the floor. I expect there to be some sort of a floor like a wood floor or something. There's wood, there's carpet on top of the wood floor on top of a concrete slab in this house that I'm in right now. I expect that to be there every single time I walk into this house. That's always been there but if you put me inside of a dirt hut in Mexico. I would be so grateful, so I think entrepreneurship is a lot like that. Sometimes there's all this opportunity in front of us, but because we expect something to just happen results to just show up people to just respond to do what we want them to do. We don't keep trying. We don't keep. We don't keep trying different things in different angles because we just expect things to be there, and there's all this opportunity in front of you, and sometimes we just don't see it. So hopefully an episode like this this morning on Monday, gives you a different perspective to realize how much opportunity is sitting in front of us all, be Legendary. We'll see you guys back here tomorrow. Peace.

How I Grew To 200,000 Subscribers! Step-By-Step Youtube Growth Plan

David Sharpe bio

Ryan Hildreth is a client who started off working a 9-5 straight out of college. He stumbled across affiliate marketing and found it to be the best business model for himself. He started his Youtube channel in 2017 and now has over 240,000 subscribers on Youtube and over 250,000 subscribers on Tik Tok. 


When Ryan first started out he was finding videos on Youtube to replicate and turn into his own words. Over time it became difficult to find new videos to replicate. He wasn’t getting much done trying to come up with ideas every day. He was missing one key factor- structure.

Creating Structure And A Schedule In Your Process To Become Successful

Ryan began putting out two to three videos a week. When you’re just starting out, he recommends you make two to three videos a week so you don’t overwhelm yourself. In order to do this he had to create a weekly schedule for himself and begin planning out his videos one step at a time. 


He says that getting ahead is important in case there is an emergency or something comes up that you need to spend time on. That way you have videos done that you are able to post while not working.  


Ryan’s process starts on a Monday. The first thing he does is grab a notepad and a whiteboard. You can also use Google spreadsheet to organize and list your topic ideas. He lists ideas he wants to do videos on. He also plans out topics he wants to expand on and trending topics to make videos on.


Monday is his administrative day, which means no filming or content creation is done. Instead, he uses Monday solely for a planning day for idea generation. He plans out ten video ideas. He scours Youtube and finds trending videos in his niche. 


Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday are the days Ryan creates, films, and edits videos. He creates three videos and edits them, and then uploads them each of the three days. He typically spends three days a week on Youtube related work and the remaining two days on his email marketing.

Outsourcing Thumbnails From Affordable Creators To Deliver High Quality Images That Stand Out


Ryan outsources his video’s thumbnails. He does this through FIverr, where he finds a nice inexpensive thumbnail creator. He sends the person creating his thumbnails thumbnails for other videos that he likes. Then he asks them to be made to look similar.


 He typically keeps his thumbnails 3-5 words if he can. Videos that only have a few words in the thumbnail tend to perform better. He gives the creator the title of the video and then they create his thumbnail for him.


Finding Inspiration From Other Content Creators In Your Niche


In order to find videos to gain inspiration from, Ryan types in ‘make money online’ into Youtube and makes videos around the topics that come up. He isn’t looking for a particular time stamp on the videos. Videos can still be popular and relevant years after they are uploaded. Youtube will push the top trending videos for the keywords ‘make money online’ towards you. If a video is uploaded less than a month ago that means that it's performing really well and Youtube is pushing that towards you. 


Ryan doesn’t use any Youtube video filters when finding videos to get inspiration from. He leaves on ‘sort by relevance’ to ensure that he’s getting the most relevant videos to his topic. A video has to be at least eight to ten minutes long to add revenue to it. However, don’t create a video that is too long. 


Youtube tracks how long a video is being watched for. If it is not being watched all the way through or too many people are clicking out of it in the first few minutes, it may not rank well. Ryan waits for a video to hit a home run. If one video starts to take off and gets over 20,000 views he will create another one like that. 


Ryan stays within the broad niche of how to make money online. He says that if you just do ‘make money with Facebook’ videos for seven days straight the topic may not still be trending. However, if you did ‘how to make money online’ videos, one of those may take off. You have to have a broad topic to create from.


Get the idea?…


There’s probably not going to be a lot of videos you come up with that are original ideas. But that’s okay. Finding inspiration from videos is a great way to take parts of other videos you watch and expand on them. Getting information from other content creators and videos is a form of inspiration. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t come up with an entirely original idea for a video.

Using Free Easy To Use Software To Create A High Quality Video 


Ryan uses the free software that came with his Macbook when creating and editing his videos. He uses the screen recording feature on Quicktime Player  when filming. He does this by going to ‘file’ on Quicktime Player and then clicks ‘new screen recording’. Quicktime Player is free and easy to use because it saves right to his desktop. This makes videos easier to find. 

He also films himself as he’s screen recording with his Cannon T6i camera. He likes to have high quality video of himself. He combines the two in iMovie, another free app for Macbook. iMovie is an easy app for Ryan to use as well. “It’s all about what you’re comfortable with,” Ryan said. Showing a video of himself makes it more personal.


Another easy to use tool is Loom because you can record yourself and screen record at the same time. Loom is free to use for videos up to five minutes. Ryan says that over time it’s better to show your face. Showing your face links your viewers to your humanity. When Ryan films and messes up he keeps going. He takes out the parts he messes up on when editing. Each of his videos take about 20 minutes to edit.

Consistency Is The Key For Successful Results 


Ryan schedules his videos to post at the same time every day at 8am. He posts at the same days and times every week because having consistency in your business is good. You will see results from videos you upload three to four months down the road, but with that consistency you will begin to grow.


Showing Humanity And Building Relationships With Your Email Lists 


When Ryan adds someone to his email list, he likes to follow up with them for thirty days straight. The first two emails are conversational pieces. He likes to have a conversation with people who join his email list to get to know them and build connections. The third email he sends is typically when he pitches to them. 


He doesn't send people on his email list his youtube videos. He doesn't want them to affect his watch times. This is only because he has so many subscribers and gets several thousand views on his videos within the first few hours. If you are just starting out, you should be emailing your Youtube videos to your email list. 


Using Tik Tok To Generate Youtube Subscribers


When Ryan first created his Tik Tok, it took a while at first to build up followers. When he started, he started from scratch. He didn’t tell anyone about his Tik Tok and wanted to see how big he could grow it to challenge himself.

He posted at least twice a day and did mostly ‘make money online’ related posts. His posts were mostly previews of his Youtube videos. He put only his Youtube channel link in his Tik Tok profile. He wanted people to click on his Youtube channel from his Tik Tok videos to use it as a lead generation to his Youtube videos.


Ryan hit a record month in commissions the second month he was creating Tik tok videos. He was growing 1,000 to 2,000 subscribers each day on Youtube that were coming from Tik Tok.

The Exact Plan To Succeed In Affiliate Marketing In 3 Just Hours A Day

David Sharpe bio

Zeb Summers started off the year as an IT Manager, but after 15 years of hard work was laid off when Covid hit. Instead of deciding to go back to corporate America, he took the leap to turn his affiliate marketing side hustle into a full-time career. He wanted to do something that gave him full control of his time. As a 45 year old father of 2, he was looking to get some time back to spend with his family. 

Zeb loves affiliate marketing and has grown a passion for it, which is why he decided to do it full time. By full time I’m not talking 8 hours of labor each day. Full time as in 3 hours of work each day, and the rest of the day to spend with his family and do whatever he wants. 

We recently had him on our morning show, Wake Up Legendary to talk about his strategy for success. So what is Zeb’s strategy for success?

Planning A Month At A Time To Focus On Money Producing Activities

When Zeb first started his full time affiliate marketing career, he felt he wasn’t producing the results that he should be. He began focusing all his time on money producing activities. He plans out his schedule a month at a time, and makes weekly and daily schedules for himself.

He schedules everything he wants to do in his 3 hour work window in his planner. He does this by focusing on certain things each day. For example, one day may be a planning day for his Tik  Tok videos, and the next may be a day where he creates his Tik Tok videos. 

One key to this process Zeb feels, is getting a good night’s sleep. The human brain cannot function to its fullest potential without a good amount of sleep. Whenever Zeb feels like he has an idea for the next day, he always makes sure to write it down. By writing it down, it helps him to sleep better because he doesn’t have to think about it while he’s trying to sleep.

Zeb creates 3-12 Tik Toks to post throughout each day along with creating Youtube videos. He plans out each video and it’s headline. Planning is a huge factor in keeping his work day to only 3 hours. 

Create Goals For Yourself To Accomplish And Create To-Do Lists To Keep Track of Them 

Zeb takes his goals for the month and the week and divides them down into weekly, then daily goals. He creates an amount he wants to make for the month. He then decides how many emails he has to send, how many Tik Toks he has to create, and how many sales he has to make to get the commission. 

Once he has created his monthly goals, he takes them down to weekly goals. Every week he knows he has to send out a certain number of emails each day, a certain number of Tik Tok’s, and a certain number of customers to follow up with each day. 

But he doesn’t stop there…

Zeb says that once he breaks down his goals into daily goals, the magic starts to happen. Zeb says he has to tune into his daily goals and be self disciplined and present. 

“It’s not about taking action, it’s about taking daily action,” Zeb said. 

He starts off each day writing emails to his email lists. Sometimes he spends up to an hour writing emails and interacting with his email list. He creates a goal number of emails to write and sticks to that goal. 

He wants to humanize himself to his customers and stay present because that’s something that is very important in affiliate marketing. The more authenticity you show, the more your customers can relate to you and build trust with you.

He also creates a goal amount of Tik Tok videos and Youtube videos to create. Once he’s planned out and created those videos, he spends his 3 hour work day creating those videos to be readily available to post throughout the day.

One great tool for this that Zeb uses, is Trello. Trello is a planning website that allows you to create to-do lists and organize different lists to check tasks off of. Trello also shows you a percentage of how much you have completed each day and can refresh so that you have a clear list of tasks to plan for each day you’re working. 

Zeb typically uses a pen and paper for his planning. For more tech savvy people, Trello has a mobile app. Another useful tool is the notepad or calendar on your phone or computer. 

Becoming The Creator And Tracking Your Progress

Zeb always says that at the beginning you can’t focus on the money. He says to focus on creating the foundation and creating content. Once you create the content, the money will come. At first, it’s hard to figure out where to start. He says that when starting out create goals for yourself and get out of your comfort zone. 

He says to take 60 to 90 days and track the progress that you are making. Focus on your goal and track the progress of your videos and work. If you aren’t meeting your goal, take a few steps back and figure out what exactly you need to do to meet that goal. 

The money might not flow in at first so it’s important to make a realistic goal for yourself that you can track. Once you’ve reached your goal you can assess what you did that month to reach that goal and continue to repeat and tweak that process. 


In the beginning when you’re creating your baseline, it’s important to consistently do content creation in a channel or two, such as Youtube, Facebook, Tik Tok, or your email list. Once you’ve succeeded in making content, you can track what is working and do more of it. 

When Things Don’t Go As Planned, Keep Moving Forward

When a day doesn’t go as planned, Zeb says to always keep moving forward. “You’re going to be on top of the mountain and you’re going to be in the pit of despair,” Zeb said. It’s important to move forward and try your best to not let the little things bother you. 

You don’t have to get analytical to keep track of your progress. Just simply writing things down and keeping track of them is enough when starting out to monitor what’s working and what isn’t. Don’t give up even if it feels like you’re not being successful. Behind an unsuccessful day could be a thousand dollar day, but you won’t know unless you stick it out.
