One Thing: Day 304: The Queens Gambit

Day 304: The Queens Gambit

Yesterday I provided you the good news that there are only 4 steps required to get your personal branding right.

Speaking of good news:

It’s confirmed… the vaccine will not contain a microchip.

But it will contain U2’s new album.

I’ve also decided I don’t want to end the year on bad terms with anyone.

So, apologize to me…

You have two weeks.



‘The Netflix Effect..?’

Last week the advice I gave you from Netflix was obviously helpful so I figured I’d add a ‘story’ component from yesterday’s 4 step branding email.

The Queen’s Gambit is arguably Netflix’s biggest success since the whacky, Tiger King.

Close to 70 million households have watched it.

It created an explosion of interest in chess and all things related to it.

Damn, even I thought about playing chess after watching it.

The message here…

To call this ‘The Netflix Effect’ is horrifically incorrect.

This isn’t the first time ‘media’ has driven people to buy and act irrationally and will not be the last.

Risky Business turned Ray-Ban Wayfarers into the number one selling sunglasses of all time.

Top Gun increased applications 100X for the Air Force and aviator sunglasses couldn’t be kept in stock.

Fight Club created real-life fight clubs.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Jeff Spicoli took Vans from a company no one had heard of to what is a $3 billion-dollar brand today.

Yes, you read the $3 billion right.

Here’s My Point…

It’s not “The Netflix Effect…”

It’s the “Storytelling Effect.”

The newfound interest in chess has everything to do with:

  • An inspirational story
  • An amazing lead character
  • CONFLICT (every story needs conflict)
  • A sport that includes intelligence, grace, and sophistication

Where am I going with all of this?

You and your high-end coaching company probably have all of these:

  • A company
  • Product
  • Service
  • Events
  • Team

Does each of the above have a story?

When I hired another software engineer recently to help us create some wild new advancements for our Profit Acceleration Software™ I told him a STORY of the company….

I detailed the vision for our company and where we’re going.

I explained how most of our staff have been around for the better part of a decade…

How my business partner and I perfectly compliment each other and how we’re like brothers as much as we are business partners.

About the challenges we’ve been through but overcame.

Plus, plenty more…

Money matters but it was the LAST THING we talked about when discussing the job.

He’s handsomely paid…

But he’s a talented software engineer that could be ‘more handsomely paid’ elsewhere.

I believe he chose to work with us because he believes in our Story.


Are you and your high end coaching clients taking time to tell your stories?

You heard it here first.
