One Thing: Day 451: Santa. Grinch. Disney.

Day 451: Santa. Grinch. Disney.

Yesterday I was explaining how I connected with high-end coaching clients and closed $100,000 ++ coaching clients back in 2005.

Speaking of things I think are clever….

A malapropism walks into a bar, looking for all intents and purposes like a wolf in cheap clothing, muttering epitaphs and casting dispersions on his magnificent other, who takes him for granted.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the oxymoron walked into the same bar and the silence was deafening.

You heard me.

In other news…

If someone broke into my house to kill me… I’d just go to the living room.



Santa vs The Grinch

I was reading some feedback and comments from last week… I got a ton of feedback on delivering your client’s wants versus delivering your client’s NEEDS.

I want to expand on my thoughts here for you.

I’ve made millions doing joint ventures… truth be told, I don’t do joint ventures anymore for a variety of reasons.

My attitude is simply, I will grow my business and you grow yours.

It’s the high school version of ‘let’s just be friends’ HAHA.


I’ve been building for the better part of two decades and have over 1000 active monthly clients, drive more online traffic than we can possibly handle and client referrals flow daily.

Therefore, consider this as a do as I say, and not as I do, thing.

The monster mistake coaches make when forming a JV is imposing what they want… rather than taking the time to establish what the potential partner wants.

Give help before expecting help.

Santa versus the Grinch.


Walt Disney wanted something unique done for Abraham Lincoln as part of Disneyland. He chose an animatronics expert and sent his executives to recruit him for the well-paid job.

His response:

“No thank you I’m too busy and tell Walt I can’t be bought.”

Executives came back and here’s the short conversation:

Walt Disney: “Did you ask him what he needs or wants but can’t get…?”

Executive: “No”

Walt Disney: “Go back and ask him that question.”

Turns out he needed to borrow $50 million for a research center.

Cut a long story short…

The artist got his $50 million dollar loan and Walt got his artist.

The right question for you to ask prospective clients, prospective JV partners, staff, helpers… maybe cough, cough, a wife / husband or long-term partner, not sure what non-binary people call themselves when they hook up but I’ll include them / their / they so I don’t get canceled…

BTW when a trans lesbian marries a bisexual, apparently, they call this a BLT.


Here are questions to ask a JV partner:

  1. What can I do for you..?
  2. What do you want..?
  3. What do you need that you can’t get..?

There’s a really good chance you can’t remember the last time you asked those questions.

And subsequently never custom-crafted a solution.

That’s why you don’t have what YOU want.

Stop imposing your will on other people.

It’s embarrassing.

You heard it here first.

Now, pick up the phone and go help someone.
