Experience With Guided Psychedelics

  • Love is the answer for a lot of the things happening in our lives

How To Build An Online Business

  • “You can have everything you want in life” – Dan Go
  • Be optimistic about the future
  • Understand your purpose is greater than yourself
  • If you help one person, you’re helping so many others that person is connected to as well
  • “It’s easy to do something when you’re passionate about it – money is a by-product” – Dan Go
  • The best way to accelerate your business is to find a mentor

  • Whatever you want to do or become – do it TODAY, don’t wait for rock bottom

Recipe For Twitter Success

  • Twitter is like a personal diary
  • Be meticulous with the scheduling of posts
  • Collect the random thoughts that come to you throughout the day – strength, weakness, gift, curse
  • Journaling and introspection help creativity flow
  • Twitter is the ultimate test to see whether you actually care about other people’s opinions

How Do Coaches Become Empathetic?

  • Coaches must wear many hats: motivator, straight shooter, more empathetic, strategic
  • Understand we’re all human
  • It’s a lot easier to be a good coach when you actually care about your clients
  • Experience: know when to push and when to ease up
  • We don’t always know what to do unless we’ve seen that scenario before so at some point it’s about the volume of clients
  • Things to note in a client: body language, tone of voice, reaction
  • Be honest! It’s ok to not know the answer
  • Know when to refer a client to someone else

Getting Clients To Overcome Financial Commitment Of Online Coaching

  • Reframe your thinking: you are paying someone to give you the plan, blueprint, and tips to avoid mistakes
  • The gains compound – you keep the skills and results
  • Find a mentor that wants to invest in you

Vision For The Future of High Performance

  • Reach millions of people
  • Enable people to achieve the highest versions of themselves
  • Twitter is the first step to scaling
  • “If you are not constantly seeking growth, you’re doomed to stagnation” – Dan Go
