Recently Grant had to increase his team by hiring three new people so he shares his experience and some tools and practices to do that effectively: thinking about the different kinds of third party help you can get, a recommendation to start hiring for the right reasons, considering your bottlenecks and finding someone to unlock them, and also be careful when hiring more than one person at the same time.
Tapping into a partner’s already built audience can be huge to grow your business, assuming the audiences are similar enough; in this episode Grant shares interesting resources to get you connected and into the industry that you wanna work with quickly and effectively.
It’s particularly difficult for entrepreneurs to be a hustler when you have to, keeping focus and plowing through daily challenges as they come by. In this episode Grant shares a whole category of tools that Odysseus used to hear the Siren’s song without crashing into the rocks, the concept of inflicting some pain on yourself to keep at your goals, some classics of sales that can help you today and a cool exercise about focus on metrics that can revitalize your whole team.

If Amazon can be a money-making machine, Grant’s guest Brad DeGraw surely knows how to operate it; starting with 100 dollars and making a thousand times that in the first year then scaling up to seven figures, Brad learned the downside of reselling and then started to go after his own brands, first with white labels then his own products. He also helps other people get their business running and shares the reasoning behind it, his amazing philosophy on hiring and how he wants his employees to make mistakes while keeping the company’s moral stances in focus… and on top of that, some pretty good relationship advice: accept the terms.
Everybody loves to talk about the latest marketing technologies and strategies, so oftentimes the phone gets overlooked. In this episode, Grant gives good arguments for this older mean of communication and how it can help you grow your business and close a few more sales faster than other strategies. In a phone call, the path to customer trust is a lot quicker and you can take advantage of that, as long as you observe the right time to do it and how much of your time and effort to put into it so that it’s worth the money.
It’s a tough day, it’s a tough life… no amount of money will completely eliminate stress for you, as it’s commonly known “more money more problems” so this week Grant talks about the ways to ease stress, avoiding stimulants for a while, taking more soothing supplements, eating super healthy instead of indulging in sugary treats, releasing guilt and labelling emotions, questions to ask yourself in stressful moments, laughing about yourself while remembering that the universe is infinite and smear campaigns can only last for about a year.
A hard time learning how to surf makes Grant think about the initial pain of learning anything and how the enjoyment you take out of performing an activity depends drastically on your skill level at it, so he defines the enjoyment threshold, how it varies depending on the activity you’re undertaking, what’s the critical component to get over it, what’s the teacher’s role in getting someone past it and how you shouldn’t forget what it was like to be a beginner, always remembering to take care of the emotional side of the learning experience for yourself and your customers.
