EPISODE 43: Actual Results vs Perceived Results: How To Manage Them To Improve Your Business

Are you and your business visible online? And if you are, are you making the most of the various platforms to direct more clients your way? And it’s not just that. Presence and visibility needs to be supported by the actual results of your work. How do you work on those two at the same time?

This episode tackles two leadership domains that you need to manage well: one is the Actual Results you achieve when serving your clients and the other is Perceived Results, which is how you are perceived by others. Listen in and start reinforcing your business’ strengths.

Key takeaways:

  • In managing your business, oftentimes, the focus is placed on getting or providing actual results (Actual Results). Yet to further improve your business, you should also consider your visibility in the industry (Perceived Results) which can create potential additional business for you.
  • Find out if you are being referred around and how often. Referrals are indicators of how others value the work you do and how useful you can be for others.
  • Engage with people as you work on delivering actual results and request testimonials from people who have been satisfied with your work. At any rate, most people who have experienced high satisfaction with your business will volunteer to provide testimonials for you. This supports your work by establishing your image and your business.
  • Learn from Tony Robbins. His visibility online (Perceived Results) are very high, therefore, if nobody knows him they can look him up online as he already exists as a high profile person.
  • If somebody’s never heard of you, increase and improve your online presence: work on increasing the number of your Twitter followers, Facebook followers/fans, number of Facebook likes, number of guest appearances on podcasts, providing free online content. All those things add up to being higher perceived results.

EPISODE 42: How Do You Pave The Way as The Leader of Your Business and Your People?

This episode is recorded from one of my talks on leadership. Leaders are meant to pave the way for the rest. As a CEO, that is your ultimate task. Both the brunt and rewards of your company’s performance are on your shoulders. How do you then clear the path and set the stage for your business and for your people?

Here’s a quick view on some of what’s discussed in this episode: The better way of taking responsibility, increase your profitability by increasing your confidence, find out my simple rule on how you can move your business forward through making a request/promise, why you should increase your empathy for yourself, why you should think weirder, not bigger. And why you should stop wasting time working on your weaknesses. (This is crazy, I know, but it works.) I hope this episode helps you out in affirming the leader within you.

Key takeaways:

  • You want to find more business opportunities? Think weirder.
  • Reconsider the things that don’t make sense. Just because it didn’t make sense in the past doesn’t mean they don’t make sense now to the future.
  • You’ve been told to go make your weaknesses stronger.
  • Challenge that and instead, get weaker in them. Get even crappier at what your weaknesses are. Just be don’t just be shit in, be absolute shit in it.
  • Identify what those weaknesses are and then identify your core strengths. And then every bit of energy that you have been spending trying to get better with your weaknesses? Give it up. Take that energy and put it towards your strengths and become exceptional in those.
  • Bring more empathy to you first, and ultimately, you’ll build a gentle company with a culture of kindness and connection a.k.a. love.
  • The number one component in sales is love. It transcends all the techniques. So why not build companies that are built on a foundation of love? The whole universe is based on love.

EPISODE 35: Challenge Your Thinking on Ancient Wisdom

Most of our presuppositions are rooted from what’s taught to us by conventional institutions, the mainstream media, and current society. Unfortunately, most of these presuppositions are limiting…and most of these are BS.

Today’s episode focuses on ancient wisdom and how they are still relevant in our NOW. More importantly, I got some questions here to help you challenge your thinking around it. Questions that I hope will not only unleash more questions to uncover truths, but more importantly, to help you live a fulfilled life.

Key takeaways:

  • Ancient wisdom transcends modern wisdom. What applies then, still applies now.
  • Reconsider where you are getting your wisdom. The conventional education that people receive tends to be lacking in promoting real connection with our environment and connection with all other living beings. This connection is what heals the gap that allows hate and violence to breed among living beings.
  • Entrepreneurs who are connected with the universe are able to feel a sense of symbiotic connection to everything around them, enabling to build better businesses for the future – businesses that nurtures the planet and everything living in it, as opposed to businesses that harm and depletes resources.
  • Entrepreneurs should realize that time is omnidirectional. It is always NOW. Therefore, as beings existing in any given point in time, we are timeless. And when we find ourselves in thoughts or doing activities that distracts us from time, those are cues that aligns us with our very own essence of timelessness. Create businesses following those cues and you will find that you will have greater energy and joy in them. Then your business no longer becomes work, it becomes your inspiration.

EPISODE 33: How to Become Self Aware to the Voice of Your Own Soul

In leadership and in business, self-awareness is one of the most important attributes that one must possess. And listening to your own soul enables you to establish connections to every little nuance in your life, making you a more productive and a more effective leader.

How do you become self-aware to the voice of your own soul? To help you with that, I’ve got eight great questions here for you to answer and reflect on.

Key takeaways:

  • The number one attribute of High Performing Entrepreneurs and leaders is self-awareness. Therefore as leaders, we need to learn how to discern the voice our own soul.
  • Our soul may speak in completely different language. It might speak through symbols, it might speak through feelings so you might be looking for your soul to talk to you in the English language when in fact, it is talking to you in feelings and intuition.
  • There is a radical difference between how the Western World and the Shamanic World approach the human stress and trauma. The former provides superficial treatment that can even promote further sickness while the latter promotes healing by re-establishing the body’s connection to its soul.

EPISODE 32: How to Discover and Act on Your Entrepreneurial Edge

This episode is a short question & answer section from one of my mentorship course where the talk revolved around entrepreneurial edge and what it brings to the table – both in business and life in general.

Key takeaways:

  • As a high-performing entrepreneur, discovering and living at your edge allow the magic of life to show up more for you; you get comfortable in your fears; and you develop gratitude for what happens in your life…your fears, included.
  • Discovering your entrepreneurial edge helps you identify where your strengths lie as a business owner and where there is room to grow. It lets you know where you are on your track and what essentially holds you back.
  • By discovering your edge, you discover your greatness.
  • And if you don’t even consider living at your edge, then essentially, you are wasting your life away.
  • Sometimes it’s not that you don’t know the answer to your problems, it’s that you don’t want to face them.

EPISODE 17: How To Go Way Past “SELF HELP” and Increase Self Awareness & Its Direct Application to High Performing Entrepreneurs

Listen in on this hard hitting talk Jeffrey did in a live audience recently 🙂 How do we go past “Self Help”. The tools we have like Books, meditations, and seminars can be supportive, but to a limit. Speaking from my perspective now, the most growth I’ve ever achieved as a human being happened through my application of ancient wisdom in modern times. And as someone who does transformational work and been in it 18 years, I find that people’s misconception of ancient wisdom is an injustice to their powerful, healing, and transformational properties. In today’s episode, allow me to share what is true for me. With the hope that you’ll find something useful from my experiences to support you.

Key takeaways:

  • Find your own medicine within.
  • The number one modality of coaching and transformation is Love.
  • We don’t need fixing.
  • We are interdimensional beings having a human experience..
  • Magic happens when you let go of the usual transformational formula and when you break away from the limitations of modalities.
  • The “why” is a distraction to real transformation.
  • Business is a transformation in itself.
  • Do plant medicine for your own soul’s journey.
  • We are part of a cult called Mainstream.
  • The bottomline is – what matters is the way we serve Mother Earth.
  • If the Amazon dies, we die.
