The Disruptive Entrepreneur

The Disruptive Entrepreneur

By Rob Moore

Welcome to the Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast . The one word that gets used to describe Rob over & over (apart from a ‘successful businessman’), is not what you’re thinking -it’s – ‘Disruptive.’ If you want a boring, comfortable, safe existence where you’re never challenged and you slowly rot away amid all the negativity, existing rather than truly living, then close Rob down! (There’s hundreds of other podcasts who will pump the same old spiel about entrepreneurship and property investments) If you’re still here, then you’re clearly looking for more from life. You know you can be something much bigger and greater, a great entrepreneur and businessman, and you have so much to give. Then Rob can help, he has over 100,000 entrepreneurs who are testament to this. Despite his ‘Disruptive’ persona (striving for more, questioning everything, continually learning, shaking things up and pushing the boundaries of convention), you’d be surprised that Rob isn’t one of these big-shot, big-ego (according to himself) celebrity-fashion Entrepreneurs. Rob is a die hard passionate ‘work(play)-a-holic,’ and a family man. If you crave new, want to prove the skeptics wrong and give a real meaning and legacy to your life, then the 'Disruptive' podcast will be straight to the point & challenging ‘Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s ignorance’ – Rob Moore

The Greatest Curse for Any Entrepreneur

There’s an entrepreneur curse that you need to avoid, but do you even know what it is? In today’s episode discover what the curse is and how it affects us, learn how to overcome it and how you too can change a curse into an opportunity and become a “momentum junkie”. Many entrepreneurs jump at new opportunities before finishing existing projects, learn today how to focus your momentum to maximise results and distribute your time wisely.   KEY TAKEAWAYS The greatest curse for an entrepreneur is the constant “start, stop, start, stop” cycle. Many entrepreneurs get lured in by new and exciting opportunities, sometimes they may not have that filter to see that now is not the right time. Many projects may go unfinished, or you may overwork yourself. Once you’ve started something, see it through. On average, it takes half an hour to get into momentum and for the good quality work to happen. If you’re task jumping multiple times a day, you are wasting many hours of the day being distracted instead of focusing on key result areas. It is risky to just focus on one singular thing, many entrepreneurs are generalists. What you must become good at doing, is moving from task to task and being able to gain momentum instantly. As well as moving from task to task strategically. The time management model “70, 20, 10” encourages you to have as many as three streams of income, and distribute your time wisely. Your main focus should be your main source of income and enjoyment, and your time and focus filters down throughout your other two income streams.     BEST MOMENTS “We’re great at starting things, we take risks.” “Become a momentum junkie.” “We have to be generalists as entrepreneurs.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

How Niche Businesses Can Build a Vast Brand

Niche business owners have a massive opportunity to disrupt their industry and build a vast online brand, however, you must be able to rethink the way in which you market your products, how you’re leveraging paid and free social media channels and consider how much value you’re really giving your customers. Listen in to hear Rob’s 7 C’s to build your brand, grow your business and dominate your niche, how you can harness the power of content marketing and what fair exchange and sustainable wealth really means to your business.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Any niche business should be looking at the lockdown as an opportunity, a way to take a holistic view of their industry and add service-based online value to its customers. You need to become a modern commodity-based business that can also offer a service and an experience to the customer Your business may be solving the existing problems of your customers but in order to disrupt you need to survey, talk and communicate with your customers further so that you can solve not just their existing problems but the future problems they may face. Niche businesses are not leveraging content marketing to its full potential. If you’re looking to build a pipeline of leads and clients actively searching for your businesses products and services you need to follow the 7 C’s framework to build you a vast brand. Content, consistency, channels, community, celebrity, courage & critics = cashflow. If you’re not leveraging free social media and paid for online social media ads, you’re missing out. As a niche business in order to grow your brand, you need to diversify your online profile across multiple social media channels, post multiple pieces of unique content and as a result, you will receive multiple streams of leads to your business. The concept of fair is exchange is an equilibrium between the consumer value and the producer’s margin. The formula for fair exchange is: Wealth = Value + Exchange x Leverage. There are laws that govern money. The wealthy understand and leverage them, the poor are a victim to them.   BEST MOMENTS “Content marketing is building up goodwill first” “You don’t want to get into a race to provide the cheapest possible product in your market” “If you do not disrupt, change or look for new solutions in your market you will not survive” “If you don’t evolve, grow and adapt you’re not going to be able to continue your business without outside disruption.” “Customers do not buy based on price, they buy based on value.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: 7 Ways to Stay Motivated During Lockdown

Discover how to motivate yourself through the uncertainty of isolation. Understand that you need to adapt your routine and expectations from what they were pre-pandemic as well as how you can focus your time on your main priorities, how to deal with lost days and why planning time to pivot your business and focus on income-generating tasks is essential to success in uncertain times.   KEY TAKEAWAYS During isolation, you've got to do things differently than you did before. Sit down and create your new routine, new working environment and create new habits. You should expect some lost days, and that is okay. As we get further into lockdown, and we still can not predict how this will go, you have to be kind to yourself sometimes and just take every day as it comes. Each time there is a new development to make a plan. Plan how you can pivot your business, new opportunities, partnerships, key result areas and income-generating tasks. Planning ahead is action and progress and gives you some strategies to move forward. Get clear on your priorities. One good thing about the lockdown is that it will highlight your priorities to you, and allow you to make clear and instant decisions on where you put your time. Take each day at a time. It is easy to feel lost and down, but take each hour of the day at a time by putting effort into your key life areas and key business areas put in as much time as you can into creating your products and services.   BEST MOMENTS “You cannot expect to get the same results as you did here months ago.” “Sometimes when the fear kicks in your brain you go into doomsday mode.” “Take it one day at a time.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT - Never Let ANYONE Tell You This (Not Even Me)

If you’ve always dreamed of trying something new, starting up a new project or going in a different direction in life, and you’re struggling with people telling you you’ll never be successful...this is how to overcome it. Learn when the right time to start your business is and why it’s better to have tried and failed than have never tried at all.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Ignore people out there that are constantly telling you not to start new things. If you want to start new projects, you should go ahead and do it. Those who tell you the odds are not in your favour may be statistically correct, but they are emotionally wrong. If there is something you are wanting to do that you are enthusiastic about and is in alignment with your personal values then you should absolutely go ahead and check if it will work for you. Regardless of whether or not your product is deemed ‘successful’ once you have produced it, it is still a success that you even got it out there in the first place. It is better to regret something you have done than regret something you haven’t done. The time that is right for you is when you’re ready, not when the market was ready or when the opportunities were at their peak. You can only get into something when you decide to. If you are half-hearted about your projects, then it is very unlikely that you will get anywhere but when you know inside you that there is something that you are meant to do then you should go and do it, and do it well.   BEST MOMENTS “The statistics are against you, but they’re against everyone else too.” “If you look at all successful entrepreneurs, it is not their first business.” “If it is right then you should do it, because it's hard.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Jordan Belfort: The Wolf of Wall Street

Have you ever watched a movie based on a true story and wondered how much of that is actually true? Well on an exciting episode of today's podcast Rob is joined by Jordan Belfort, the real-life Wolf Of Wall Street. They discuss the similarities and differences between real life and what was shown in the movie, as well as how learning from your mistakes can enable a successful comeback.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Everybody makes mistakes and everybody does great things. You are going to make mistakes in life and perhaps get in some trouble along the way. The fact that others may be making the same mistakes, or not playing by the rules still doesn’t make it right. Don’t look back on your mistakes and make excuses for them, the good stuff you will do with your life will outweigh any of the bad mistakes you may have made. You should never doubt yourself and your ability to be successful again, after losing everything. When you are good at what you do, perhaps you can sell at a high level, and you understand the business skills and mindset of someone great, you can always come back from adversity. You may not make your comeback in the same way as before, you may go on an accidental journey to your new-found success. Learn from your previous mistakes and turn them into life lessons, by taking something that you used abused, and flipping it in a different way. Take that power and redirect the energy in the exact opposite direction and turn it into amazing things. Delay your gratification, don’t try to make it tomorrow. Many of the early problems you may face in your career will be based on an inability to delay your desire for instant gratification. True disruption is really about going into a market and finding a much better way of doing things, and as a result of that putting most of the people that are doing the service out of business or forcing them to adapt to the better business model.   BEST MOMENTS “I do so much great stuff around the world, I help so many people.” “The evolution of the human spirit took about two and a half years” “Good things take time”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE GUEST Jordan Ross Belfort is an American author, motivational speaker, and former stockbroker. In 1999, he pleaded guilty to fraud and related crimes in connection with stock-market manipulation and running a boiler room as part of a penny-stock scam. He published the memoir The Wolf of Wall Street in 2007, which was adapted into a film with the same name and released in 2013.Jordan has given any  motivational speeches and runs sales seminars entitled "Jordan Belfort's Straight Line Sales Psychology" When he first began speaking, he focused largely on motivation and ethics, then moved his focus to sales skills and entrepreneurship.   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: How to STOP the Damaging Pattern of ‘Good. Bad. Over. Repeat’

Discover how to break the common cycle in peoples lives of ‘good, bad, over and repeat’ today. Rob discusses how to create realistic expectations from people in your personal and professional lives and learning how to take responsibility for bad outcomes even if you’re not to blame.    KEY TAKEAWAYS Many people live their lives in the same pattern of ‘Good, bad, over, repeat.’ They apply this to many if not all aspects of their lives, from relationships to their business or work lives. This stop and start mentality is like setting yourself up to fail. When a new opportunity arises in someone’s life some people may have a naive fantasy that the situation is better than it actually is, therefore setting themselves up to fail because they have set unrealistic expectations from someone or something. The way to break this pattern is to have realistic expectations. Do not expect things or relationships to be a miracle, expect it to take it to where you want it to go but have the foresight to expect challenges you may face along the way. Expect to grow and support yourself and not just your partners or staff members and meet your own needs as well as theirs. Take responsibility for yourself when it goes bad, it may not be your fault but if you own the responsibility of it going bad, rather than blaming someone else. With these new steps, you can change the pattern to ‘Average, good, better, great.’ A slower process but less likely to fail.    BEST MOMENTS “It is like going up a big ladder and down a big snake.” “The good is too good.” “What about you could you change? Be the change that you want to see.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The Real Fear of IT ALL Falling Apart

Have you ever feared that one day everything you have worked for would fall apart? Discover today how even the most successful and wealthiest people in the world often feel exactly that and how to manage it. Learn the benefits of fear and how to put these feelings to good use.   KEY TAKEAWAYS It is normal to feel fear, even the most successful people in the world have the fear that everything will fail. The more successful you get the more critics you will have to input their thoughts and opinions on your journey. This may make you feel fear that you are letting people down and not doing enough. All these fears are real. Fear serves you. It allows you to practice more, prepare more, become more humble and to learn and to listen. You learn more from your potential failures than you do from your wins and successes. Humans are extremely resourceful, especially when they face extreme troubling circumstances. However, under usual circumstances you are not desperate enough to get yourself uncomfortable. It is only when you get really uncomfortable to do you really learn what you can accomplish. Entrepreneurs need to be careful not to hustle their way through feeling and experiencing life. Rather than distracting yourself, learn to breathe through the difficult emotions and think of how you can turn that into something positive and turn that into caring for your clients.   BEST MOMENTS “Fears are what support evolution.” “The fear will never go away, you just get better at being able to manage it.” “The warmest comfort is actually your biggest enemy.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Richard Koch: Why Being Lazy is the Secret to being a Millionaire

Learn today what it means to have “Unreasonable Success” as we are joined by British author and businessman Richard Koch. Rob and Richard discuss the characteristics of the unreasonably successful, how you can specialise in certain areas of knowledge, the attitudes of the greats and how you too can engineer the experiences of others, train your unconscious mind and develop 80/20 strategies to ensure your own success in your own industry.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Unreasonable success is about an individual's success and an individual's ability to change the world. It doesn’t exactly seem right that the success these people have comes to them, in many ways they are not as competent as many others. Unreasonable success comes from a series of experiences that people have and how they react in certain circumstances. Each person that has unreasonable success is likely to have the same 9 characteristics. These are attitudes in responding to events and personal strategies which they stumble across. The individuals also use their intuition far more than reason. Specialise in an area and acquire very deep knowledge in a very narrow area. As well as training yourself to use your unconscious mind, The unconscious mind tries to help people, you have to do the right things to enable the conscious mind and believe that it will help you and come up with ideas. Only try to do things that you think will have some impact on how you think you want things to go or something that you really enjoy. If you can get to that stage you are probably going to be happier and a lot more effective. Think about the things you really want to do and are uniquely qualified in doing, and just go ahead and do them. You can engineer your own unreasonable success. Every single person in business that had unreasonable success either had a transforming experience in their own company or in another company beforehand.     BEST MOMENTS “The more you do just the things that are important to do, the more successful you may well be.” “You have to specialise in an area of knowledge, intuition isn’t random.” “Money is important, sometimes too important.”     VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE GUEST Richard Koch  is a former management consultant, entrepreneur, and writer of several books on how to apply the Pareto principle (80/20 rule) in all walks of life. Richard has also used his concepts to make a fortune from several private equity investments made personally. Richard’s investments have included Filofax, Plymouth Gin, the Great Little Trading Company and Betfair. Previously he had been a consultant at Boston Consulting Group and later a partner at Bain and Company, before leaving to start management consulting firm L.E.K.

NEW: Disrupted Lockdown Routine

Do you feel slightly lost and confused with how to manage your time during the lockdown? Discover how you can create the perfect routine for productivity and how you can prioritise the income-generating tasks first. From compartmentalising your day to being ruthlessly efficient and effective, find out how you can make the most of your time during lockdown.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Create a routine for yourself each day compartmentalising your day into 15,30 or 60-minute chunks. Start by creating a plan as soon as you wake up for the entire day. Always include family time, key life areas, key result areas, income-generating tasks as well as everything else.

The quicker you pivot from your old routine to your new routine the quicker you get efficient, productive and effective, you can then commercialise your time. If you haven’t been blessed with more time using this lockdown, you have to find these 2-3 hour a day chunks and be ruthlessly productive and effective. You can get as much done in two hours as you can in 6-8 semi distracted hours. Isolate yourself from distortions, such as social media, the internet and children when it is time for you to do your key result and income-generating tasks. If you compartmentalise your day properly you will have enough time for everything you want and need to do.   BEST MOMENTS “The one big change during lockdown is your routine.” “The routine you created before the lockdown, you may as well just print that out, rip it up and put it in the bin!” “You need to create a new routine.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Therapy: My Personal Experience (& How to Find Your Own)

What is your perception of therapy? Do you want to know, understand and learn more about yourself and how you can grow? Rob dives into his personal experience undergoing therapy, the benefits of understanding how to deal with your baggage, the reality of addressing your weaknesses and vulnerabilities and how you can use it to creating and living a more balanced life.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Many people perceive going to a therapist as though there must be something wrong with them, that they are broken. Their understanding is that it is all about baggage, weakness and vulnerability whereas, in reality, it is more like a test that you cannot fail. It is a learning exercise to find out more about yourself. As parents no matter how you raise your children, you’re going to raise balanced upsides and downsides. If you overly are for them, they may become dependent and juvenile. If you overly challenge them, they become broken or overly independent. The way you raise your children will form their personality. In human beings, primary caregivers mimic the emotions of children. If a child is angry, the parent’s facial expressions mirror this emotion. This gives the child feedback to learn and understand this emotion as a reflective way to know who you are. Without this, a person may not develop an understanding of emotion and who they are as a person. Nobody really knows your hurt. Perhaps the closest people to you may have some idea but people only see the behaviour you exhibit as a result of that hurt. If people saw hurt they would perhaps be more sympathetic. To understand who you are as a person, you will have to reflect on who you were as a child and how these experiences have formed your personality today.   BEST MOMENTS “Sometimes I feel like a young child. I feel all weak and vulnerable and young.” “You never do wrong by your children” “When you get triggered and you react, you think you’re strong but really you’re just defensive.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

500th Episode Special: Rob Get's Grilled By Mentor Dr John Demartini

In this special episode, Rob is joined by world-renowned specialist in human behaviour, a researcher, author and global educator Dr John Demartini. Together they dive into mindset, values, expanding your awareness and becoming more resilient to the addiction to praise and the fear of rejection. “Nobody gets up in the morning and says I want to have less knowledge” so jump in and discover the secrets to living your life by your highest priorities by learning to embrace pain and pleasure in the pursuit of your purpose. KEY TAKEAWAYS Everybody has a set of values that they live their life by, whenever they are doing something that is in alignment with what is really most meaningful to them, they are spontaneously inspired to act and they are more resilient to the addiction to praise and the fear of rejection. We are more resilient because we are more objective. Every moment we are living by our higher values we become more resilient to distractions and when we live this way we have the highest probability of embracing pain and pleasure in the pursuit of our purpose. You never have certainty when you have polarised biases. Anytime you have an imbalanced day state and not an objectivity state there’s always uncertainty in your mind. When things are balanced, we lose our certainty and the moment we get in our brains we tend to bias things as the survival mechanism instead of a thriving mechanism. We need to ask ourselves how is what is happening to me right now, how is this helping me fill my priority? Human beings are called to expand, their awareness and their potential will never go away. Gratitude for the opportunity to do and not take credit or blame is one of the most powerful mechanisms humans can develop. This relates to repurposing ourselves, the moment we beat ourselves up, we repurpose ourselves because this makes us go back to priority thinking and mechanism. Don’t ever think you’re proud of your child unless you’re taking credit for what you think you did to get them there. You are never proud of their actions, pride is not the way they did, pride is what role you think you played in what they just did, the second you’re proud, they’re going to humble you. The moment we allow ourselves to get up and be proud, we have a built-in thermostat to focus and bring up our consciousness about the stuff we didn’t feel we lived up to. We push the homeostatic ‘us’ back into the centre of our actions to reach authenticity again.   BEST MOMENTS “Whenever you’re living by your highest priority, you are more objective.” “Nobody gets up in the morning and says I want to have less knowledge” “We want to show off our faces with pride and cover our faces with shame” “Love them, but watch out for taking credit or blame”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Rob and Amir discuss what it takes to succeed in the world of boxing, how Amir is giving back to people in the community and how you can use money as a motivator to success. Don’t miss this exclusive interview with a world-famous boxer.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Being a dedicated boxer has led to many amazing opportunities, such as winning medals and championships.

It is a reminder that all the grueling training programmes paid off and the rewards were reaped. The best advice for life is to stay focused, keep working hard and never give up. It is important for people to have dreams and goals that they wish to achieve in life. If you have goals and ambitions, chase them, they allow you to wake up in the morning with purpose and determination. Think where you would like to be in ten years’ time and use goals to drive you. Don’t allow hate comments on social media to get to you, do not rise to their words and waste your energy on them. If you have a large social media following you are bound to have haters.  When you are successful in life, the haters are always going to be there. The love received from social media from fans destroys all the hate. Money is the motivator for everyone in life. You use it as motivation because you want your family and those around you to live a good life. Some people are not honest about money being their motivator but it comes down to the question, would you work for free? There is no shame in being money motivated, you don’t have to be motivated by money only for yourself, but to provide those you love with the means to live a good life. Appreciate every penny you earn. There are many people out there in the world who don’t have much money and who struggle to get by each day. Spending large quantities of money on material items such as watches makes you think ‘what could that money do for these people?’ You start to think that that money could be spent on better things, such as food for the poor. Rather than buying expensive items like jewellery, it is better spent on charity.   BEST MOMENTS “I was 16 when I won gold at the Junior Olympics, I won the gold medal, and the best boxer award” “The day you stop getting haters is the day you think to yourself, have I still got it?” “It is nice when people know you, and they treat you a little bit more special” “ Never let people get to you. Just say thank you very much and just let it be.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE GUEST Amir Khan is a British professional boxer, promoter and philanthropist.

Caffeine Cast: When They Say 'My Market is Saturated'

Do you know if your market is saturated? Do you know how to overcome zero demand for your product or service? Rob discusses how you can make sure you become the best in your market, how to focus on the value your service provides and how to make your brand different and stand out from the competition.   KEY TAKEAWAYS A market is not saturated until there is absolutely zero demand for the product and service anymore. There is always room for the best in any industry, whether that be the best product, service or pricing. If you constantly evolve and grow you will continue to win. If you surround yourself with media and information relating to your respective industry, it may seem like the market has become saturated, this might put you off from chasing your dreams. The reality is there is room for everybody. Even if you are in what may seem like an oversaturated market if you are the best, seek feedback and analyse your competition and do what the best do well and keep evolving with the market, then you win. Rather than asking whether your market is saturated, ask yourself “Am I passionate about this?” “Will I want to do this for a long time and endure the challenges along the way?”. The answer to these questions will allow you to proceed in your market or not. If you are entering a busy market, focus on your service, focus on how you and your brand are different and unique and that will allow you to get to the top of your market.   BEST MOMENTS “Those that don’t evolve and improve, lose” “You never really know what your market is like until you’ve got real people paying real money to you” “There is always room at the top”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

On social media, it is wise to unfollow people who share non-factual content that could be detrimental to your mindset. You should choose to follow a small number of people who create valuable content for what your aims are.   BEST MOMENTS “There are so many dream stealers out there, and you have to be really careful about those people” “They say hurt people hurt people” “Trolls are not interested in balance and facts, they should be reported”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The debt in America will go from 20 trillion to 42 trillion dollars due to COVID-19.  Online business is doing better during current circumstances than before. Outbound calls for the online business have quadrupled, allowing for greater productivity than the same time the previous year. All the things you should do in a contraction is firstly consolidating all your resources, secondly, look at your assets and liabilities,  thirdly is to properly assess all of your assets and ensure out if you need to reprice product or leases etc and then go about expanding your business again. Once you get to full acceptance of a problem you may face in your personal or professional life and you are able to recognise that you are in need of help, and you can ask for it and implement a strategy, then you are in full acceptance. As much as you would like everyone to love you, not everybody can or will. All you need is for you to love you. You need to focus on your family liking you and having your employees believe in you. It may frustrate or hurt you when you hear that people don’t like you or when they say untruthful things however what you need to focus on is if and how you have let yourself down and or through that. The people that adapt to this situation, that pivot and move with the times and use all their energy to shift into the next stage of their lives to mature, will make a lot of success during this crisis. This contraction will become its expansion.   BEST MOMENTS “I had a lot of losses in my life, and I have been trying to make the most of my life since I was 10 years old trying to do the best I can and trying to figure it out” “Acceptance is where you develop a strategy with the help of another person.” If you are a team leader you cannot believe the worst is coming, but if you’re a boss, you need to prepare.” “What is somebody that doesn’t like me?

Is This The WORST Human Trait? Do You do this?

Rob discusses what one of the worst human traits to have is and we’ve probably all experienced this at some point and perhaps, you’re even guilty of doing it too? Or maybe you have been on the receiving end of it? Listen in today to find out what this trait is and how to overcome it and what you can learn from failure, struggles, pain and purpose.   KEY TAKEAWAYS One of the worst traits somebody could have is the joy they feel when seeing somebody fail. It is believed that the more successful somebody is the less joy they feel when seeing somebody fail. It is a human trait to feel pleasure from somebody's failure at one point in your life. When you may be struggling the most or when you are at your least successful, feeling satisfaction when others around you are failing may occur. This may make you feel less weak and less vulnerable and better about your own situation. If you are busy focusing on yourself and busy on your own mission, you probably won’t have time to focus on the success or failure of those around you. One reason not to judge others and feel satisfaction from other people's failure and pain is that nobody is perfect in personification. Some people do not have the perception and mindset that everybody is just trying to do the best that they can.   BEST MOMENTS “Why do so many people get pleasure out of other people's pain and misery?” “The more somebody is on a mission the less pleasure they get if other people are struggling” “If it is balanced, it is good to be challenged”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Q&A on Building a Brand, Entrepreneur Hacks & How to Scale a Business

In celebration of the launch of the new Facebook ‘Stars Feature’  Rob allows his followers to ask the burning questions they want answers to and helps them discover the ways in which they can grow and scale their business. Rob has been handpicked by Facebook and one of only 20 people in the world to be able to use this brand new Facebook supporters feature, so don’t miss out on this exclusive content!   KEY TAKEAWAYS To build your personal brand you will need to ensure you are on all social media platforms. Linked in is great for business as it doesn’t restrict its reach only to your followers. Start recording podcasts in your field and commit to creating more content. The slow but deeper way to grow your following is to do it organically with a lot of original and consistent content. The quicker route may not gain you a loyal following. Doing lives on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram will get your name out into the industries of which you desire. If you are looking to become a public speaker, start by giving speeches for a small number of people and gradually increase these numbers. Courses on public speaking are available with Progressive, to help perfect public speaking. Local networking events are a great place to start doing small pitches. To scale your business the number one starting point is by increasing your output of marketing tools. Secondly, you need to hire more people in the sales and marketing teams, this is vital for scaling. Another way is to work on the business, not in the business as well as building your own personal brand to gain more reach for you and the business. Improve your product and service to encourage more sales and increase the gratitude of your customers which will allow them to refer people to your product, encouraging real-life testimonials. Study your competition intensely and work out what they are doing and the things they are doing well or not so well. Make sure you and your business improve upon any shortfalls you see in your competition's product or service. Study other industries that are not the same as your niche because this could allow you to hybridise and create unique products and services in your own space by watching what other people do. It is not copying, it is modelling and you can add your own flavour into the new product to create more of a hybrid model. You want to leverage Facebook groups, there are a lot of consumers in Facebook groups that you are likely not a member of as well as using LinkedIn more as the reach is not restricted allowing you to potentially reach millions of people organically.     BEST MOMENTS “Speaking might sound easy and natural to those that are good at it, but actually it is not that easy to sound relaxed and calm, it takes practice” “ There’s no cost in marketing when getting referrals and recommendations. It is the lowest cost marketing but highest quality of lead” “If you copy what mentors and smart people have done you will get better results than not knowing what to do and doing it yourself, but it is good to be original and unique.” “When it comes to scaling up you need to leverage yourself”     VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The smart and healthy thing to do is to make a 90-day plan, and then take it one day at a time. Many people are not used to being at home, therefore structuring your day is essential. If you have been put on furlough you may not have the accountability of your daily tasks as you did before, you have all this extra time and this may be frustrating. Having a structure for your day will help you achieve your results, whether that be in business, homeschooling or exercise goals.   BEST MOMENTS “Everyone I have spoken to is having their own wobbly journey, some people are literally on their own” “Some people are being really creative through this lockdown” “When you have a plan, it stops you going into doomsday mode” “Discipline will equal freedom”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Robin Sharma: The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Rob is joined by bestselling Canadian author Robin Sharma most famous for his books ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari and The 5 am Club’ Together they discuss and share publishing advice, Spiritual advice and how and why personal growth is essential to success. KEY TAKEAWAYS It is essential that we enjoy the world but not be of the world, a lot of people are making a lot of money but losing their soul in the process and that is a very empty victory. The publishing environment has changed a lot, but by self-publishing a book you can get it to market very quickly and with all of the technology available you can create a self-published book that looks just as good as a professionally published version, and the process is a lot quicker. Fear is a human emotion just like guilt. All entrepreneurs face fear, and we all face guilt, anger, and shame. We all face fear but fear lives in the place where your growth lies. What the best leaders do is they visit the places that terrify them.   There’s too much greed, too much unkindness, too much selfishness, too much entitlement, too much addiction to distraction. You have to be practical as an entrepreneur. Being disruptive is seeing what everybody else is doing and then getting to a place where you can develop the fearlessness to test your own voice. If you look at the great masters, these are all people that said here’s what everyone else is doing but I don’t think that’s right. The real question is, do we follow our relative urges to please or do we follow them because that’s the most authentic thing we can do to celebrate our primal genius. The journey of an entrepreneur is not an easy one, it’s the journey of growth you need to go right into your fears, feel it and experience the fear.   BEST MOMENTS “We live in a world where there is a lot of sheep vs people. In the age of social media there have become too many people called cyber zombies, they are not thinking for themselves”   “Great entrepreneurs are continuers, they face the rock-throwing of the jealous critics they face self-doubt, they face being misunderstood, they face frustration and they continue because their heroic mission is larger than the chattering voices of their fears and that is just a reality”   “They ridicule every great visionary before they revere them”   “If you can live your life in a way that even if no one understands s you, you do what’s right for you, then amazing things happen”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The Great Big Opportunity Right Now

Now is the time for accelerated immersion. We’ve all been a 90-day opportunity to focus our time, to learn and grow, to start new ventures and to launch new products and learn new skills and it is a massive gift, so how are you using your time in isolation? We no longer have the excuse of time, our world is being disrupted and it’s time for you to disrupt your industry, get productive and grow your business.   KEY TAKEAWAYS When people want to start or scale their business, their excuse is always that they don’t have time. But now we have a golden opportunity, you should be relentless, resilient and productive in your approach to launching new products and scale your business.   Before the lockdown and before we were in this situation imagine if you could pause the world for 90-days. Imagine if you had the time to read the books you put on the shelf, listen to the podcasts you want to listen to and educate yourself and focus yourself on your new business venture.   Right now is probably the first time in our life that all of our excuses do not matter and it creates an opportunity for us all to learn, grow and accelerate our educational immersion. There will be two types of people that look back on this 90-day opportunity. Those that do nothing and hope the world goes back to normal and those that double down on content out and in, leverage the increased activity on social media and those that create and launch new product and services.   Social media is more active than it’s ever been so how are you leveraging it? People are searching more, engaging more and buying more. So what products and services in your business can you launch online?   BEST MOMENTS “We have been given a golden opportunity” “Social media more active than it’s ever been” “You’ve never been able to put the world on pause and accelerate your immersion.” “Mother nature has given you an opportunity, are you going to take it?” “The world is on pause for X amount of days it time to educate yourself, build your brand and grow your business”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT: PLEASE, Stop Watching the News

Listening to the news can be damaging to our mindsets and ultimately our success. Listen today to find out how you can free your mind of negativity, overcome the current climate and stay focused on your journey to entrepreneurial success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Everybody who watches the news thinks they know everything about current world topics such as the world pandemic Coronavirus or Brexit. The reality is we do not know what we are being fed. The media’s main goal is to sell their media and they do this through fear and panic. You need to ask yourself the question, reading all these negative and dark news stories, How does that serve you? What benefits are you getting from it? The biggest cancer to your success is the fear, the noise and the panic in your mind. The media triggers all the fear emotions in us all and as a result, we are getting a constant stress release, which is damaging to your health, wealth, progress, success and happiness. If you need an update on the world news you can ask someone who is credible and neutral which saves hours of stress, cortisol and negativity. Replace the newspapers with solutions, strategies, mentors, books and planning your future success. Find out what benefits you get from reading the news, and replace it.If you feel like you are getting education via the news, replace this with more accurate sources. If it is a habit, change the habit or routine. The biggest liberator of time is your mind space, the biggest consumption of time is mind space, the biggest cause of stress is mind space and he biggest liberator of freedom is mind space, so it is what our mind is full wit. Is your mind full of positivity and growth? Or is your mind full of negativity and destruction?   BEST MOMENTS “The best way to sell that is through fear” “Free advice is worth every penny” “When you empty your mind ideas come to you”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Phil Spencer: Property Guru & Location Location Location Host

Have you ever seen Location, Location, Location? Well, in today’s episode Rob interviews property expert, media personality and co-host, Phil Spencer. Phil dives into his 20-year TV career with behind-the-scenes insights and property lessons that apply to everyone. Rob gets Phil’s professional opinion on all things property, his predictions for the next recession and what it’s like to be a TV presenter, author and journalist.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Q.What are some of the things that have kept you and your programme relevant for 20 years?     A.One of the fun things is that we don’t know what is going to happen, you have to roll with the punches, you have to move with the times and our advice is market-led, we give advice tailored to the conditions at the time. Q.How do you maintain the love for your profession?     A.That is easy, I have done it on television for 20 years but I have done it in real life for 26 years. It still gives me a real buzz to meet someone, sit them down and tell you of their dream property, to be in a position where you can influence and lead that and then to be able to find it, that in itself is a huge buzz and I will never get bored of that. Q.What was your funniest moment whilst filming for Location, Location, Location?     A.The funniest moment I can recall has never been transmitted. It was whilst filming the pilot during a discussion about what the programme should be called. It was originally to be called “The great house hunt” however we soon changed it when we realised that any title with the word hunt, is likely to go wrong when said live. Q.Many people are predicting a recession. What would you say to people trying to get into property at this time?     A.On the one hand, the availability of good credit has never been easier so why not fill your boots? However on the other hand, I do not feel that yields are that exciting at the moment. We have got a housing shortage, added with the societal changes, long term demand is only going to rise and therefore demand will increase. You have an increase of people who want to rent, but because of the tax changes in investors, that means less investor-owned properties and less for tenants to rent from. Q.What is the best advice you have ever received?     A.My dad said to me that “an awful lot can go wrong in the world if you own the roof over your head” meaning that bad things may happen, but only to a certain degree if you own the roof over your head. Concentrate on that. Q.What does the word disruptive mean to you?     A.I think it's about somebody who thinks about things in a different way. Someone with an independent mindset and is prepared to do something about it. See things in a different way, don’t follow the herd.   BEST MOMENTS “We work damn hard at getting results” “Seeing that you have delivered on their dream..” “You have got to take some risks, take some gambles, work hard and find your angle and move with the times” “We need a bit of time to ourselves to look after the mind and the body”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Been Saying This for 10 Years & Finally They Listen to me

The lockdown can be about new beginnings and new opportunities but we must take lessons from the lockdown about how to adapt, change and pivot our businesses. The lockdown has reminded us about what’s valuable and taught us some hardcore lessons but ultimately it’s how we implement those lessons. Tune in to hear Rob’s thoughts on how we can not only survive but thrive through the lockdown and discover the single most important concept disruptive entrepreneurs need to know right now.   KEY TAKEAWAYS The lockdown has bought about many opportunities to create lifestyle businesses and empire businesses and taught entrepreneurs some very real lessons about increasing your results, income, reach and revenue. Speed Is one of the most important concepts about being a disruptive entrepreneur. The quicker you pivot, the quicker you can adapt to the current economic times and the quicker you plan and implement will contribute to your success more than anything during the lockdown. For businesses, the quicker you get your products and services online, the quicker you re-allocate your marketing spend and the quicker you make decisions in your business to maximise current opportunities will determine how you can make up lost revenue and in-fact find an audience you didn’t know you had before. When launching a new product in these uncertain times, use the price elasticity model to test products for free and you determine your product price vs value.   Rob’s community opportunities during lockdown and thoughts on how the world will change: Virtual video property tours and online networking and online events. More millionaires are made during a recession, be ready to diversify. Complete digitalisation of the economy. The importance of having a routine and financial planning. Consistency, self-mastery and training. Adapting your business with the use of technology. Building a war chest for the next recession. Starting a podcast and increasing your reach. The movement towards premium and paid content.   BEST MOMENTS “Don’t just survive through these times, thrive through these times” “You need to have a business mentality of the quick and the dead.” “There’s a fine balance between overwhelm and productivity” “I’ve proven I can be twice as quick and productive during this virus then I thought I could be” “It’s not evolution anymore, it’s revolution” “Expect the best and prepare for the worst”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

What’s HOT Right Now on Lockdown

During the lockdown, many people have been given the gift of time, it’s an opportunity to learn, grow and develop your skills and today, Rob shares with you ‘what’s hot right now’ and how you can maximise the opportunity of lockdown with online courses, e-Commerce businesses, social media, podcasting and masterminds. If you’re looking to expand your skill set, mindset and grow a profitable business during the extra time spend at home, this episode is for you.   KEY TAKEAWAYS E-commerce is booming at the moment. It is important to not go into this blindly and not to do the “grabby” e-commerce such as toilet paper which does not have longevity. Online courses, events and masterminds are thriving during the lockdown. You could offer these courses for free, and your product could thrive off the back of it, yourself as an entrepreneur can make use of these online services, you are likely to have more spare time, therefore, there is greater opportunity to double down on your learning and grow your online support. Social media is uplifting during the lockdown, consumers are more active on social media and therefore you are able to get more reach with your content, gain followers, prospects and clients. Another great opportunity during the lockdown is podcasting, you have an abundance of time, if you record just one a day during the predicted 90-day lockdown, you could produce almost 2 years worth of content for weekly podcast It is really important to have a routine during the lockdown. When you have a routine, you have direction and accountability. If you are more ruthless about your time and productivity, you can get everything done in three hours as opposed to the eight hours you would have before if you cut out all the distractions.   BEST MOMENTS “How long is it going to be until life gets back to some sort of normality” “There are all these opportunities right now” “Don’t waste the time that we have now”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: My FIRST Therapy Session Since the Virus | it’s a BIG ONE!

What can therapy do for you? Rob reflects on his most recent therapy session where he focuses on the importance of materialistic items and how this has changed throughout the years as well as looking at ways to deal with inevitable conflict and how to survive through the current pandemic. KEY TAKEAWAYS Attaches happiness to materialistic items such as watches, cars and music stations because when he was younger he received gifts along with spending time with his parents. Materialistic things do not matter in the long run. Cash and liquidity is king in the current climate. Many people buy materialistic things for the rush when buying them, but the comedown still comes. Another benefit of the current climate is being much more connected to people, such as friends, family, and clients. Before the recent pandemic, there was so much focus on insignificant things, that no longer seem relevant. Many of us were sweating the small stuff, but now is the time to focus on the bigger things in life. The Coronavirus and its effect on the world can cause people to rise to the occasion. People are more productive, working faster and harder and able to build greater connections. With the Coronavirus pandemic, there has been much more conflict in the world. With too much conflict you create chaos, however, with enough conflict, you delay but inevitably still end up with chaos. Many people will avoid conflict, but at some point, you will have to face it so it is better to do so sooner rather than later. Leaving unresolved conflict, may cause you to stew and overthink things and you will eventually project your unresolved emotions onto someone who may not deserve it, and you will end up having a meltdown. Both extremes are bad. Conflict doesn’t always mean arguments; it could simply be giving feedback, instructions or reprimanding someone. It is important when addressing conflict to know when to address it and to know when to back away. Hustle through these times and do what you can, sell your products and services to the best of your ability and fight to keep your head above water. However, make sure you do see your family and those who are important to you as well as taking some time for yourself. Human beings have to look after themselves, support each other and small businesses more, however giving to other people is valuable and much more fulfilling.

Lawrence Dallaglio: Legendary England Rugby Player & World Cup Winner

Rob is joined by England rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio and they get into all things rugby and business. After retiring from an amazing rugby career in 2008, Lawrence tells us what he has been doing since, from the businesses he runs to regular punditry as well as his honorable charitable work. Don’t miss this insightful interview with an English Rugby legend.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Q. Lawrence, what are you up to now? A.I retired from rugby in 2008, it is an ever-fading memory. I was a rugby player who worked before they got into rugby, I was a surveyor, I owned the property industry when it was on its knees in the early ’90s just as the game of rugby came along, and when I turned professional. I sort of parked the property side of things for a while, though I would give rugby a go. Sport is quite an exhausting career, there are enormous highs and enormous lows I was actually quite excited to retire,it was relentless and there’s only so much of that that you can do. I had a number of different things that I had set my heart on for when I retired. I ran a call center company for a while, which was exciting, we then sold that business to Serco which went well. I then set up a hospitality business called “The Green Room” which is still going now. I have always kept a close alignment to rugby because that’s been in my life for the best part of 20 years. I remain beloved in Wasps, the club I was at for 20 years and we have gone on an amazing journey since I have left, I sit on the board of that club. I was lucky enough to work closely with BBC Sport, I helped to launch the channel with Jake Humpherries and Clare Baldwin, and I am currently a commentator and pundit for them. I recently concluded a sports marketing business called BBH Sport where we were looking after brands who had invested in sponsorships and they didn’t understand o to bring that to life. Quite a diverse portfolio, and that’s the way I always wanted it to be really.   Q. What did you have to learn when you came out of rugby? A. There are a lot of similarities, believe it or not. I think it is about understanding how it works, for that particular environment but equally when you come into a different organisation, there are things that you need to learn and adapt and understand what motivates people, building a strong culture within any environment doesn’t matter whether it is the sport or work it is really important.   Q. What does the word culture mean to you? A. Well, it is a set of behaviours really, there’s a set of behaviour that is important in any environment. It is the same at home, some families behave in a weird way, some behave differently. That denies how you perceive each other, and how people externally perceive you. That is what culture is, it is an internal message and feeling as well as an external one. It is important to generate the right feelings as often how people perceive you is really important, how does your competition perceive you? Do they find you inspirational or aspirational? It is also about your group living and breathing those behaviours.   Q. Was there a moment in your career when you knew you would make it? A. Rugby is an interesting one, as soon as you’ve made it another bigger player comes along! It is quite a humble sport. I think for me the process of our development as a human being starts from a young age. I was very lucky to have been born healthy and into a cool environment which gave me two things in my life which were unconditional love which I think is amazing, and secondly, they gave me a belief system that you can go out there and achieve anything that you want to achieve. My parents are both from working-class backgrounds and both worked incredibly hard and provided me with love and belief. So you asked me, when did you think you can make it? Well, an early age really because every time I didn’t think I could make it I was continually reinforced with that belief of going out there and doing it.   Q. Were you scared of Jonah Lomu? A. Scared is the wrong word, yes he is huge. When he comes running at you I have never seen a mountain run but he is enormous. Unfortunately, I played against him in 1999 and I ran towards him and I timed my run so I didn’t have to make a tackle against him, I ended up accidentally hitting him in the nose when he was scoring a try and it looked like a volcano had erupted! He was a special player who is sadly no longer with us, who saved his best performances for England. A phenomenon.   Q. Can you remember the worst piece of advice you have ever had? A. I have been given advice that has turned out to be wrong. The opposite of good advice is telling you that you can’t do things. Negative energy, there’s radiators and drains, and we don’t like drains, we like people who radiate good energy.   Q. Did you ever have people along the way telling you you weren’t going to make it? And did that motivate you? A. Oh yes absolutely, I think it does motivate you. School teachers, and all sorts of people that you might have met along your journey that kind of motivated you a bit more and maybe they say it because they secretly like you and want you to do well. I think part of rising up is falling down, that is a familiar picture we have all seen. There have been moments when you have been down, and then you rebuild yourself whether it be reputationally, physically or emotionally and I have had to do that a couple of times. I had 14 operations in a year, it took me a while to repair, but I am only 47 I am sure the body will break down again soon!   Q.What does the word disruptive mean to you? A.Disruptive means someone who challenges conventional thinking. You can be disruptive and that is good, I like disruptive. When the world zigs, zags. When everyone goes one way, go another way because that challenges conventional thinking.   BEST MOMENTS “Getting your face smashed in all over the world, is a little bit overrated” “I am a firm believer that we arrive in this world with nothing, and we leave with nothing, that we can guarantee” “Shoot for the moon and you will be amongst the stars” “Part of rising up is falling down”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

EMERGENCY: Now is NOT the Time to Reflect!

Though the situation asks us to self-quarantine and stay put in our own homes, now is NOT the time to rest. For Rob, it’s still hustle and grind. Plainly his choice. But if you can do it too, he thinks you’ll make a big change in your business and career once we get out of this crisis. What Rob sees as problematic: people see this as a chance to slack off—by allotting much more time than usual to resting. Not all people will agree, but try to hear him out. Tune into the latest episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast to know more about what you can do during this time. KEY TAKEAWAYS Rob sees an opportunity to all of this. We can do our part as citizens—stay informed, follow the protocols, and help other people—whilst also bettering ourselves. There is definitely no pause in personal improvement. Entrepreneurs, you can have your time to reflect too—even if you grind & hustle during your isolation. This global health crisis brings anxiety and fears to most, so peace of mind will be needed. Maintain your momentum. You can find alternatives, even you’re at home. You can even consider this time to start your long overdue projects. Now’s the time. The world needs people right now, those who think and move with a cause. It’s the best time to put your skills and knowledge to good use. There are problems to be solved. You can help other people through your services. BEST MOMENTS “I’m not all about hustle and grind.” “When you’ve got a day of just nothing, a blackhole, with no structure or routine, it’s quite easy to just bounce around like an atom in an open space.” “Being busy is a really good distraction from going to a depressive state.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Progressive Property Podcast (https://www.progressiveproperty.co.uk/podcast/)  Rob Moore’s Start Now Get Perfect Later (Book) (https://www.amazon.com/Start-Now-Get-Perfect-Later/dp/1473685435) ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is a 5x best-selling author, a public speaker, an entrepreneur, property investor and a Guinness World record holder among others.

Caffeine Cast: Dealing With Disruptive Times: Thriving Instead of Surviving

Are you worried about how an urgent pandemic will affect your business? It’s a challenging and uncertain time but it’s in these times that not only can your business survive, but it can thrive. It’s a chaotic time for business and disruption is everywhere, but if you know how to plan, react and see the opportunities that it brings you can be successful throughout it.   KEY TAKEAWAYS There are many ways in which you can thrive through this pandemic. Firstly you can start by not cancelling things that don’t require cancelling. The reality of business is that your competitors are probably scared, scaling back and cancelling things. If you have 50% less competition you have actually now got a bigger market than before. People like to think that everything stops, which is incorrect, things might just slow down. You may be able to benefit from this pandemic if you react quickly to the current changes and think of the best outcome but plan for the worst and think about how you can grow through this. Many of the biggest companies in the world are born from a recession because the playing field is level and everyone starts again. There is going to be a new type of market and a new type of client as well as new opportunities from a drop in the stock market. Make a plan for your business during this time. Having 2 or levels of plans for how the market and world is changing will help you to be ahead of the curve and pivot at a moment's notice. Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy, as well as not just surviving but being able to thrive during chaotic times.   BEST MOMENTS “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater” “Thrive when others are trying to survive” “For some companies and some entrepreneurs, this is going to be their best time ever”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Jim McColl OBE: Billionaire Investor & Scotlands Richest Man

How do you become successful? There’s no one size fits all formula, but there are some essential elements that you need to know about if you want to become successful. In today’ episode, Rob interviews Scottish billionaire and founder of Clyde Blowers Capital, Jim McColl OBE. Rob and Jim discuss what it takes to become successful, how to motivate yourself, how to educate yourself, how to have an unwavering self-belief and how to take risks. Tune in today to discover the insider secrets to entrepreneurial success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Things you need to do for you to be successful. Everyone in life has his or her own needs, someone wants a big house, someone wants a nice car, someone wants to buy land or property, these are the things that drive us to work hard, but the extent of how hard you work depends on how much you want that thing. Have that belief that your ideas are achievable even when people think that your ideas are crazy. You must have self-belief because when people think that your ideas are crazy, you should know that they are big enough and you have to prove them wrong for notbelieving in your ideas and you have to prove yourself right that you have an achievable, big idea. Taking the first step in doing what you wanted to do is the most essential thing you can do in your business and personal life. Don’t just sit there and keep on saying that you have a business idea and you are not doing anything about it. Your idea could be the next big thing in future. Take the first step and do something about it, it doesn’t matter how many times you fail. This is the key to becoming the next big entrepreneur. You should also have that hunger for education, be willing to learn so that you can acquire the knowledge to build a business and run it smoothly and scale-up. Be willing to learn from the best and from people who have achieved success in their lives and their business lives as well. Start your business and do as much homework as you can to mitigate the risk, understand the market, be the expert in the sector you're in, do as much as you can and learnthe competition in the markets, the products they're looking for and then make the decision. Be a person that is always willing to take risks in everything that you do because you can never be an entrepreneur or you can never achieve anything if you are not a person that takes risks. Big opportunities always come with great risks. Taking risks gives you pressure, you become responsible for more and more people. You feel a responsibility for them as you grow and it gets to a point where it's not all about you anymore. If you do something crazy and it doesn't work, that's fine if it's just you that it impacts, but if you've got hundreds or thousands of people that would be damaged, that becomes a real burden. And that's what makes you lose sleep at night. Have a positive visualization and havea clear vision, a storyboard for where you're going. When you start your business, you need to have a plan of what you want it to achieve or where you want it to be in a certain amount of period. Having a plan helps you to stay focused on your goals all the time. For you to be successful in your personal life and your business life, you must be willing to sacrificea lot of your time and be willing to put in hard work. You have to be willing to get tired. Choosing the right people to work with is also a key element to having a very successful business. BEST MOMENTS “The business that you're in is the best business to be in.” "Bonuses of doing better in your business, you get to meet some nice people and interesting people." "The need for something is what that drives you forward.” “If people do not think your ideas are crazy, then your ideas are not big enough.” “Sometimes the bigger risk is not doing something.” “Go big or go home.” "Awards should mean nothing because they don't change who you are." “Most people don’t want to see you being successful.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE GUEST James Allan McColl OBE is a Scottish businessman and entrepreneur.

Caffeine Cast: 3 Unique Elements to Building a Success Brand (Personal & Business)

There are three essential elements every entrepreneur must master in order to build a unique, disruptive, powerful business brand and in today’s episode Rob Moore shares and explains these three tried and tested elements to success. Miss this episode at your own risk. KEY TAKEAWAYS Three elements of building a unique, disruptive, powerful business brand. A full competitor analysis. Try to study your peers, the great artists of the time or even in history, don’t be driven by ego and saying that you want to be unique. Having an ego and saying that you know it all, you will miss out on some influence or some movements or some trends that are happening at the moment and this may lead to a very huge loss to you or your company. Copy the great or people who have achieved greatness in their lives if you have to because you will see great results in your business and personal life. If you want to build a great business, you're wise to learn from businesses that have gone before you that have blazed the trail, that has made mistakes, that have gained experience that are more resilient, they have more reach, more impact, they have wisdom and they have resources. The second element is to study external business models and sources and get your inspiration outside of your niche.Borrow influences in those external, non-niche business models and bring them into your business model. And what that does is that creates something that your competitors do not do. You borrow the best bits of your competitors, which is element one, but then you create an external, non-competitive marketplace, strategies, tactics, influences and creativity and that’s when you've got something unique. The third element then of creating a unique business and or brand is you and your uniqueness and your inspiration and your personality and your flavour. Who are you? Who are you naturally? How do you express yourself and who you are? Honour who you are. Honour what you've done. Honour what you know. Honour what's unique about you. Honour your strengths. Honour your weaknesses. Honour your flaws. Honour your own experiences. BEST MOMENTS “Good artists copy great artist’s steal.” “Be great by modelling the traits of the greats and modelling competitors.” “If you learn from everyone, even outside your niche, then you're even more unique.” “Learn from competitors, who you perceive screw people over, or you think do business badly or wrong, or learn from people whose values are completely different from you.” “If you've gone to the point where you have learned from your competitors, you've learned from slightly wider niche and you're learning from a completely different niche that you're inspired by, if you're at that level already, then now start studying people you think you didn't like.” “Don’t do what your competitors do badly, but model what they do well.” “If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.” “Learn from everyone above you, elite, equal to you, below you, be an open-minded person.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Money book by Rob Moore https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT: Who’s Creating the Real Fear & Panic (It’s Not The Media)

In this episode Rob tackles the sensationalisation of the current pandemic of COVID-19 and how important it is to stay positive and productive during this time. If you have been feeling low about this urgent situation, tune in today for an uplifting view and ideas for what you can to do to thrive. KEY TAKEAWAYS It is very easy to blame the media in causing such panic and hysteria within the public in regard to Coronavirus. Much of the information is conflicting, however, it is argued that more panic has been created not by the media, but by social media. Many people use their social media platforms to voice their opinions, be careful not to take opinions as facts. It is vital that you inoculate yourself from distractions, opinions and bad energy. In this time it is about thinking to yourself what more can I do? And what more can I give? In regards to your business community, rather what less you can do. Take this opportunity to look at ways you can thrive and scale the current economical climate. You need to think about what helps you the best in this current situation. What is best for you, your family, your clients, followers, and fans. Whatever doesn’t help you, you should unfollow and ignore it. This situation could trigger recession and reduced asset values, but you have to look at it in a holistic and balanced fashion and not just a negative way. Look for the upside.   BEST MOMENTS “Some of the critics are out in droves. Criticising what you’re doing or what you’re not doing” “Everyone has an opinion, and that is okay” “Social media has created a far bigger storm than any other media”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

How to Reinvent Yourself

Have you ever wanted to reinvent yourself, embrace change and change your direction in life? Rob talks us through the best ways to evolve your mindset, progress in business and in life and disrupt and challenge yourself.  Working alongside renowned British businessman Gerald Ratner, famous for making one of the biggest gaffs in business history, Rob looks at the amazing way he has managed to reinvent himself, pivot into other industries and become a success again and again. KEY TAKEAWAYS Every challenge that you perceive to have a downside also has an upside. It may be easy to look at another person’s life and be able to see the downside and upsides, but the true wisdom is being able to do this in your own life. Embrace change. Many people fear change and have the need for control which can create a lot of tension. If you learn to embrace change and see it as a thing of evolution and progress then you can organically or dramatically reinvent yourself depending on your situation. Study trends. If you can get a sense of where the world is going, you can embrace a new media, market, and abilities to earn a living. Old dogs can learn new tricks. In reality, you can learn better when you get older, It’s just about your mindset. You need to be in the mindset that it doesn’t matter what age you are, you can always learn a new skill. Curiosity is about wanting to learn new things and being fascinated with the world and seeing new opportunities. That is the greatest open mindset for learning and development. Unlearning bad habits. Often we imagine that we know something, and we don’t. Let go of those bad habits that are causing continual mistakes or pushing people away from you. Disrupt yourself. Challenge your thinking and your strategies. Think about what you would change about yourself and your company looking from the outside in and apply these thoughts so that you can evolve and improve before your competition does. Continual testing. A testing mindset solves a lot of problems, it makes you a lot more risk-averse, brave and courageous. Have a life plan. With your business or career, split your time 70/30 between your main income and your second income. If you’re all in on one thing it will be difficult to evolve and reinvent yourself. Continually be uncomfortable. Allow yourself to become comfortably uncomfortable, whereby you are stepping out of your comfort zone, but it is not so scary that you are not likely to go through with it. Hang around with people from different walks of life. These may be people older than you, younger than you or people from different backgrounds with different beliefs. You can learn a lot from people and it can keep you challenging your own beliefs and helps you to reinvent yourself. What’s the future vision of who you are? If you don’t have a future vision for yourself, then you don’t know who you are going to reinvent yourself into and then you will be forced to reinvent yourself, often to someone else’s criteria. BEST MOMENTS “Look at the upside of the challenge and you may be able to get back in the game” “The older you get, the wiser you get” “There’s a gift and a lesson in everything, it is just being able to see it” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/  ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT: I Got HATE Raising Money For a Life Saving Operation!

Social media is often used to do great things and recently Rob used his online community to raise money for his sister’s kidney operation, however, as it often does, the dark side of social media reared its ugly head and some hate comments were fired back at Rob. In today's podcast, Rob talks us through his experience with hateful and hurtful comments online and how to learn, grow and overcome them in the future. KEY TAKEAWAYS Set up a Go Fund Me to help pay for a private operation on a kidney for his sister, she wanted to stand on her own two feet and raise the money herself rather than rely on her brother for the money, an admirable thing to do. She raised a few thousand pounds in a number of days, her target was fifteen thousand pounds. Rob reached out to his contacts and raised a significant amount of money in a day, meaning they reached the money needed for the operation in less than 24 hours. Rob then received hate from a gentleman wondering why he wouldn’t just pay for the operation himself. Even when you use your community for good and if you raise money for someone else, people will hate you. They were able to use social media for good, each and every person that donated were able to feel good about themselves and feel they have achieved something for a good cause. Hate culture, including criticising, trolling and nasty comments is a negative side of social media. Don’t let the negative side of social media affect who you are, you should continue to be yourself if you believe in something strongly you should try to gather support and get global reach. Look at the positive side of social media instead of the negative. The bigger you get, the more hate you may receive, people will hate you the thing that is great about you. What you're scared of will probably happen anyway so you need to overcome this. If you have a good message, product, and service you will minimise the hate, but it will always be there. BEST MOMENTS “She wanted to stand on her own two feet, something I completely respect, love and admire about her” “We got the money is less than a day” “Even if you help people and change people’s lives, you are going to get hate” “Put your message out to the masses” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/  ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

The VIRUS: How to Plan & Scale Through The Fear

Do you believe the Coronavirus is a media scare or a genuine case that we should worry about? This is the big question a lot of business owners are asking themselves at the moment because they don’t know whether to take action or not. In this episode, Rob explains how he reacts to situations like this and how he is dealing with this specific global crisis.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Years ago I would have had a different mindset towards this, I probably would’ve through it was just a media scare. However, now having a large business it will affect me quite a lot so I need to take things like this seriously. Don’t avoid the feeling of fear so you can know what to do, don’t panic, plan what you’re going to do and how you can do something to benefit you and your business to take advantage of this global situation. I’m planning online events so that people won't have to physically come along to my events, is there a way that you can have your business run from home or online? You have to plan for stuff you can’t plan for, you have to plan for the expected that you can be blindsided by. When you have a big overhead, lots of staff and a big business you can really get hit big time so it’s crucial that you feel the fear and prepare to act fast. Create a new product that you could sell to fit the situation or pivot your model so that you can benefit from it. Don’t believe everything in the media and don’t worry too much about stuff that you can’t control.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Taking it seriously is different from fear and panic’ ‘Feel the fear’ ‘Plan the worst, expect the best’ ‘Always have a plan for something you can’t plan for’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

An Honest Discussion on Vegans, Fitness & Business With Phil Learney

Success does not come easy, you need to have a structured routine, the right mind-set to work and learn more and the ability to change your habits and adapt your behaviour. In today’s episode, fitness entrepreneur and gym consultant Phil interviews Rob on all things business, health, and fitness, how to overcome the battle between them and succeed in all areas in the end. KEY TAKEAWAYS Habits and behaviours change. What are the things that you've developed over the years have changed or what’s your routine? The main thing I've developed is a hunger for learning. This was due to a fear of rejection. You should never let your past hinder you from achieving success, always have the mind-set that you are also going to acquire success. Do not be jealous that other people are being successful and you are not, always work towards your goals and in the long run, success will come your way. That is a trait that you should develop in your business life and your personal life, don't be jealous or never hate successful Be an open-minded person and always be accepting feedback, whether they are good or bad because the more you learn to take feedback from people, the more you are learning. Feedback from someone may bea great idea for your business and personal life to thrive. There are things you don't agree with, there are things you'll challenge others, but whatever you want to do in your life, you can go and find it, you can go and ask for help. This is because you are also human too. Ways you can change your mind-set. One is a natural change over time. The natural progression of your life will create change. There's a desire to change, e.g. I want to be a better person, I want to grow, I want to improve or there's a hard event in your life which shocks you. Someone gets murdered, you lose a family member for me and you just question everything. Try and control the change in terms of mind-set by wanting to learn, wanting to be better, wanting to educate yourself, being curious all the time, being interested in people, being resourceful. All those states of mind are ones that help you grow, that help you develop, don't just change every 10 years because life takes you that way or just wait until something very bad happens. In terms of routines, learn something every day, meet interesting people, do podcasts if you can, listen to audiobooks or listen to podcasts, get involved in great conversations and have good mentors. Have a set structure of your routine and don’t let anything alter you from getting what it is that you had set to achieve that day. Stage one of creating your ideal routine is what works for you. What kind of body type are you in? Somebody gets up early or somebody works well late at night. How much sleep do you need? Figure all that out and then create sort of an ideal routine. You got to think about what's right for your clients, what's right for your family and then you create the structure, which works. You should look forward to having a personal trainer in your business or personal life because once you have that, you then have accountability and thus you can follow your routine very well. Do not fear hiringthem because you think that you will waste a lot of money on them, think in a more positive way that you will achieve your goals set in that routine. If you’re teaching stuff and people aren't going out there and almost replicating, telling people what you've taught them, you should know you’re not doing my job very well. People should try to copy you and that’s when you know you’re successful. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Try and learn from everyone. BEST MOMENTS “Ego is a lot of fear and insecurity.” “Be a master of your destiny.” “When you work for someone, what you desire the most probably is freedom.” “Discipline equals freedom.” “Certain amount of routine equals freedom.” “It doesn't matter what my routine looks like, what matters is what is the ideal routine for you?” “We all need accountability because the easiest person to lie to is you.” “If you let go of a lower-paying client, you create space for a high paying client.” “The more expensive something is, typically the better it is.” “If you don't ask the right questions, you're not going to find out the truth.” “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.” “Learning is learning something you didn't know. Learning is having feedback and having you evaluatewhat you do and how you do it to make you want to think differently.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ Advanced Coaching Academy Website ABOUT THE GUEST Phil has been a prominent figure in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years.

Learn on the go, as you go not before you go. Start now and get perfect later. The more rejections you get the more success you get as long as you learn from each rejection.

RANT: Should You BLOCK Haters?

Blocking the haters, trolls and critics is more than just a yes or no question. Today, Rob discusses how you can learn from the critics and the haters to help you grow, innovate, create and become more resilient in business and in life because, in reality, they’ll teach you more about your business than your fans and help you improve on your product or service, get a balanced view of the market and understand the actual value of what you’re offering. Tune in to understand how to overcome critics, trolls, haters and w**kers in today’s insightful episode of the Disruptive Entrepreneur.   KEY TAKEAWAYS A critic is someone who has constructive feedback that is sometimes wrapped up in a negative comment that as an entrepreneur and business owner you can learn from if you don’t react emotionally to it and actually listen to what is being said. A lot of people turn critics into haters by lashing out and getting aggressive in return, simply by misreading the critic’s initial comment. A hater is someone who hates the industry and hates what you represent this doesn’t mean they hate you as an individual, they could hate themselves or hate your product or service due to a bad experience. There are also hater that used to be critics but become haters because of how you dealt with them or how you reacted to them.   A troll is a fake profile that needs to be reported and can really affect you and others around you.   It’s up to you to decide if it’s worth listening to a critic or a hater, it’s up to you to figure out if there is value in what they’re saying and if you can improve your product, service, understand your industry better or learn from competitions. However, you must block them if they hurt you, trigger you or cause you to lose time out of your day or weekend. You can also get your VA or outsourcer to monitor the hater for constructive feedback.   As a business owner, you need to know what your fans, followers and customer are saying, but you also need to know what the critics and haters are so that you can get a balanced view of your company and see the opportunities to improve. If you have enough self-worth that you understand what a critic, hater or troll is and how to react to their comments then you do not need to block them out, you need to learn from them because there is wisdom in there.   Critics, haters and competitors force you to innovate and create a better product or service. As entrepreneurs, you have a cognitive bias and by embracing the critics and learning from the haters you will become more resilient in business and improve your product offering.   BEST MOMENTS “A lot of people get upset when they get criticised because they want to be judged in the way that they want” “You don’t get to decide how people will criticise you” “You should embrace critics, want to learn from them and realise that they’ll teach you more than your fans.” “Critics will help you improve on your product or service, help you get a balanced view of the market and understand the actual value of what you’re offering.” “There’s a blessing in every stressing” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Rob is joined by James Reed, Chairman of Reed, Britain’s biggest recruitment brand and worth over a billion pounds today. James describes how he started out in business, how Reed started and how it grew into the business and brand that it is today. If you’re looking to gain insights and advice from one of the most influential entrepreneurs and business owners, don’t miss out on this in-depth interview today. Tune in to discover how to start, grow and scale your business, how to strategically plan your business decisions, why mastering negotiation is essentials to success and why having the right mindset will help you succeed in business with the chairman of the world’s largest family-owned recruitment company, James Reed.   Key Takeaways. Take us through your journey? I suppose I am curious about learning and I am interested in entrepreneurship. My first job was in a cemetery to earn money before I went to college, it was hard work, it was in winter and I had to level graves. It was pretty educational because it made me realise I didn’t want to do hard physical work, all my life. I then started working for Anita Roddick, she is the founder of The Body Shop with her husband Gordon, and I was really impressed by her ethos and sense of purpose because it was all about fair trade and not testing on animals, she had a really strong message and brand and I wanted to learn from her. Do you think writing letters to people is more successful than email? Yes, I do, when you email someone you are piling up their inbox but when you write to somebody it is very rare and it stands out more. It is a good way of preempting a job application and that’s what I did with Anita Roddick, I saw that she was having some problems, I wrote to her directly and I became caudate of one rather than a candidate of 100. Any way we can differentiate ourselves, and come across as somebody with personality and character is much stronger. How old were you when you attended Harvard? I was 25, it was really tough. You started your study group at 7:20 in the morning and you worked really hard, and you learned a lot. I then came back and got a job at the BBC in production, I loved that I was a trainee producer for a little bit. You have both higher education and experience working in your family business, which one taught you the most? What is interesting is when I went to Harvard, my Dad actually applied and came over too. He did a course for entrepreneurs. I was the first member of our family to go to university, and even though my father left school at 16 with not any O levels, he was really big on education and he learned at night school to be an accountant. The difference is when you study at a university you consider a lot of ideas and see a lot of other people’s experiences, but you’re not actually doing it yourself. It is all very well having a theory but tries and it in practice, and I have learned that since. Try and take people with you, create a moon purpose, build energy around whatever you’re doing, that is really human and that is what I learned from my father. You have been very partly responsible for the growth of your family business, can you tell us how you grew Reed? I think it is always important to be growing, our strategy is very simple. It is to grow organically, we haven’t grown it by acquisition. There are only two ways you can grow organically, one is through exceptional service and the other is through innovation and new ideas. If you can deliver a good service to people that they appreciate, they will come back and they will also recommend you to other people, we take that very seriously. Innovation is also a big part of our DNA. We are always looking for new ideas and we are always skint people for their ideas. What justifies recruitment agency fees? You can negotiate your price, but I always say, if a recruitment agent is charging your company a very low fee, where are they going to send their best candidates? There is a huge behind the scenes cost of running a recruitment agency. We spend 20 million pounds on advertising, millions on IT, we have over 3500 staff. So there’s a lot of time and investment put into that. All the best and biggest recruiters in the UK use our website. If you’re paying a big fee you should expect a really good service and a really strong shortlist and ultimately a really good hire. If you have a good recruiter alongside you who know what you’re looking for, that’s a really important relationship. How do you probe to get the mindset of somebody and look beyond the CV? Characters are everything in the end. You have to embark on a conversation where you can find out as much as you can. The thing that people most care about is integrity, but if you ask a bunch of school kids “what are you looking for you when you go for a job interview?” They never come up with that. There’s a really mean question in my interview book which is “where does your boss think you are right now?” So unless you have taken the time off, if your boss thinks you are with a client or working from home, that’s an issue. What is the best advice you have ever received? Be nice to people and to try and have an idea every day. What is the worst advice you have ever received? To not do things that I have ignored and always turned out quite well. Or when people have told me “Be more careful” or “It won’t succeed” often they’re right but the comfort of a pessimist is being proven correct, but there is nothing better than proving them wrong. What does the word disruptive mean to you? I am not sure it is positive! It has become more ambivalent to me if disruption is good or bad? I think we have entrepreneurs have a duty to think about that, and maybe come up with some new ideas to address that. I love change, I love the challenge of improvement.     BEST MOMENTS: “Getting the right people into your organisation is game-changing” “Some ideas have succeeded, and some have failed, but the combination of the two has led us to where we are today” “The difference between hiring someone who is fantastic and hiring one who is a disaster can make or break a business”   ABOUT THE GUEST: James Reed is the Chairman of REED – Britain’s biggest and best-known recruitment brand and the largest family-owned recruitment company in the world. James first joined the company in 1992 after graduating from Harvard Business School. Since then REED has become a billion-pound business and reed.co.uk – the first of its kind, established in 1995 – is the UK’s number one recruitment site. James is a regular media commentator, with TV appearances including BBC News, Sky News, BBC Radio 2 and The Apprentice. He has contributed insight to a wide range of publications including the Financial Times, Harvard Business Review and the Sunday Times. James is also a best-selling author of three books.

Discover the common traits among successful students and what you can do to help you succeed in business and in life.    KEY TAKEAWAYS Common traits among successful students. A balance between persistence and patience. They do the work, they keep pushing their message but they face some rejection. But they’re aware that success can take time and sometimes longer than you plan. Success is balance. Continued education and personal development. Learning doesn’t stop at one course or one lesson it’s a continual process that is essential to success. Continued improvement. Making mistakes happen all of the time, the key is fixing the problem and learning from them. Always aim to take feedback, learn from it and never get complacent. Passion, energy, and enthusiasm. Don’t burn out in the beginning, keep a continual passion for what you’re doing and own it every day. Network. Your peer group will pull you up and give you tips, tricks, and advice on how to grow and scale. Mentors. People are either lifting you up or pulling you down. Aim to surround yourself with successful people, mentors and those that are where you want to be. Putting yourself out there. If you continually put yourself out there, meeting people and networking you will learn and grow incredibly fast. The best form of learning is osmosis so surround yourself with the people that have the experience that you want and the skills that you desire. Consistency. Just commit to doing it, be consistent and success will happen in the end. Commitment is a mindset that can take you a long way. Asking for help. Everyone has pride and everyone feels vulnerable but asking for help can be the biggest driver to success.   BEST MOMENTS “It’s easy to do it when your up and high but hard when you’re down and low” “You can’t fight life” “The test of you is when life isn’t going well” “There’s always 20-30% of people that have the right intentions and desire to succeed but life just gets in the way and the trick is finding out if what got in the way was an unlucky circumstance or an excuse?” “There’s a significant group of people that jump from one trend to another and suffer from ‘shiny penny syndrome’ and when it gets hard they look for an easier way out.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT! SHUT Your Mouth (& do This)

“Knowing when to speak up and knowing when to shut up is business and life mastery” There are too many people out there trying to get ahead and they’re talking too much and definitely not listening enough. Everything you need to find, love, grow and discover are out there on podcasts, Youtube videos, in masterminds, on courses, and with your mentors, if you stop talking, stop interrupting and start listening. Tune in today to discover why listening matters and how to gain more information, extract more education and get more inspiration with your host, Rob Moore.  KEY TAKEAWAYS When you’re talking you’re simply not listening. The information, education, and inspiration are being missed because you’re talking and not listening.   If you talk, not only are you not getting information, you’re also not extracting information out of people. But when you listen and occasionally ask good questions, people will ask you all sorts of stuff that you wouldn’t get otherwise and it can make a huge difference in your business and personal development.  A good example of this is viewing properties and just letting the vendor talk and share and vent and from this, you can understand their motivations and serve them better. If you want to make someone feel important just let them talk, from customers, clients, vendors, and prospects, just let them express themselves and let them talk.   To allow people to talk to you and give you information and this could be your customers, leads, prospects, and clients, they must be able to feel comfortable around you must ask good questions, listen and listen with interest using your eyes, ears, and bodies.   Billionaire Jim McColl has bought over 85 businesses in his industry and one of the main reasons he was able to do this was because he was simply non-threatening.   Sometimes ego takes over and you try to talk and try to overcome the nervous and restless energy by talking, but this can omitted a sense of desperation and it takes a lot of wisdom, self-awareness, and self-confidence to just sit, listen and take it all in. Occasionally people stop listening and start talking when they’re triggered. They say and rant stuff online, on social media and in emails and as a result, it’s out there for good. These people can damage reputations and relationships because they don’t know when to shut up and they let their ego get the better of them.   BEST MOMENTS “When people are waiting to talk, they’re not listening and they’re missing out on the details and important information that can be had from listening” “If you’re in therapy or need to have a rant and need to ‘let it out’ that’s okay, but do it privately and get permission to vent.” “You’re going to learn a lot more in a dialogue and not a monologue” “The best seat in the house at a mastermind is the person with the least money, the least experienced and the most to learn” “Wisdom is a balance of knowing when to talk and when to listen, when to express and when to act and ask questions” “Sometimes the ones that say nothing are the dark horses that listen, learn and take it all in” “Knowing when to speak up and knowing when to shut up is business and life mastery” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Using the 80/20 content rule. 80% of the content should be value and content based on what the community wants and need and 20% should be everything else such as personal posts. Learning to handle the critics and haters. Crowdsourcing. Ask your viewers for ideas on what content they would like to see. Consistency and persistence are key. You need to upload regular content if you want an engaging audience.

Caffeine Cast: What Fear Really is

Do you know what fear really is? Take a look at the evolution of fear and how in the modern world it manifests in our daily lives. Discover how to embrace and overcome fear and how to stop it from getting in the way of you achieving your goals. KEY TAKEAWAYS   Some people say that fear is false evidence appearing real. Other people describe it as your imagination of how a future outcome will be. Many people also think fear is an emotional response to a scenario or situation. Many people forget that fear serves us as well as hinders us. All emotions are a reaction to our environment but the problem is, the environment isn't real it is our perception of the environment that is real for us. Therefore, fear is a reaction to a false perception, not an actual real one. People fear the feeling of fear, not that actual event itself. Fear is primitive, it is a programmed response that goes way back to our primitive era to help aid our survival and evolution. However, in modern-day we still feel really strong fear about daily things. Fear is a future, imagined reality felt through emotions usually overly exaggerated yet we still feel them so real in our body. Fear is a fear of the feeling in response to the environment of the things that haven't happened yet. The more fear you get yourself through and overcome gives you a thicker skin, more ability to deal with rejection and an ability to feel more fear. What you fear is not the event, it is your reaction to the event, feeling through it and embracing it in will take you to amazing levels of mastery that you have probably never experienced in your life before.   BEST MOMENTS “Fear serves us as well as hinders us” “Feel through it and breath in-out” “Feel the fear and do it anyway”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

RANT: When People Say “Easier Said Than Done” (OMFG)

Do you often find yourself wanting to do things, but losing motivation? Thinking “it’s easier said than done”? Well, tune in today as Rob talks us through ways to combat this feeling and overcome your fears of failure to create nothing but success for yourselves! Don’t miss this inspirational episode. KEY TAKEAWAYS -When people say it is easier said than done not only are they stating the obvious, it also stops them from actually doing something. What they are really saying is that they don’t want to do it, or it is too difficult to do. - If there is something that you want to achieve and you have described it as being “easier said than done” then this has only one solution which is getting something done. - People generally tend to get band mental health when they have three or more major areas of their life that are going badly. - If you find yourself in a situation where you have three or more major things in your life that are going badly, which is contributing to poor mental health, one way to overcome this may be to focus on one area and try to improve. -You’ve got to not think about how easy or hard it is to do it and you have to chunk what it is you’re looking to do into manageable steps. - You cannot be successful without failing your way to success and doing something is better than doing nothing. - If you do nothing, it will go wrong. If you do something, it may go wrong but you can learn from your mistakes and get it right next time. -It then becomes easier done than said, if you chunk it down and just create an action plan of small steps to take.   BEST MOMENTS “To know and not to do is not to know” “Stop procrastinating and start testing” “Would you rather look stupid and be successful or look good and be skint?”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Sharon Carpenter: Broadcast Journalist, Producer & Entrepreneur

Rob is joined by British broadcast journalist, producer and entrepreneur Sharon Carpenter. Sharon answers questions on how she got to be where she is today and what she has planned for the future. Sharon shares exclusive stories from working as a broadcaster in America to how she manages to balance her personal and professional life. Tune in today for this captivating interview with industry legend, Sharon Carpenter. KEY TAKEAWAYS When people who do not know you, ask what you do for a living what do you tell them? The first thing I tell them is that I am a broadcast journalist, that is because that is where I started out in more of the news side of things and then I moved over to the entertainment side of things, still as a journalist. Now I do so many different things, I am a presenter, a quiz show host, a producer. Does that make you an entrepreneur of sorts? Yes, it does. I have my own business called Carpenter Media and most of the work I do through that, I also create and develop television shows through that brand as well. Do you find it hard to have a relationship as an entrepreneur? It is hard, and I have definitely been in that situation, I do get very caught up with work so sometimes I do forget about the person I am with. I remember I was working on a presentation for a TV show that we eventually ended up selling to MTV. We were working around the clock and sometimes my boyfriend would notice that I was active on social media but was not replying to his posts, he didn’t understand that for me, social media also work. When you’re in that environment you have to be laser-focused. Sometimes there is just so much going on, your mind is so full that you’re not even thinking about that. I will say that I am understanding because of that, and I think it takes a certain type of person to be with someone in that mindset, that is really driven and wants to be successful. You really have to think about what is important to you, I do know people that have been all work focused and then they get to a point when they are like ‘oh I wish I had a family’ and they didn’t make time for that. Do you feel like you were able to stay true to yourself working in the media? When I first got into the industry, I was first a producer but I had dreams of being on camera. I remember talking to this big-time executive and he said to me “Oh so you want to be on TV?” to which I replied “Yes, it is a dream I have” he then told me “Well your English accent is a distraction!” I was devastated, I had also got a new agent who told me that maybe I should lose the accent and learn to speak with an American accent. I had to think to myself, is that really being me? If I was to go onto a station and start speaking with an American accent, that's not really real. I was trying to figure out, I’m English am I ever going to make it? I then remember going to see Sting perform, he was performing “English man in New York” and there's a line in the song “be yourself no matter what they say” and that's when I decided I was going to be myself no matter what they said! How do you deal with putting yourself out there on social media, without worrying about getting hate? You sort of has to get to a place where you don’t care. You need to build up your confidence, and to build up your confidence it is all about being good at different things. It has always been important to me to excel at things and produce good quality work, no matter what it is. All of that builds confidence, and the more the hate received will just become water off a duck's back. If you read something, don’t take it too much to heart, read it in a constructive way and take it in the best possible way. After getting so many comments, it has definitely helped me get a tough skin, what does it really matter? Not everybody is going to like you. Q.What is the best advice you have ever received? The best advice I have ever received was actually something that I heard somebody say. It was Anderson Cooper who said this in an interview “work harder than the rest, outwork everybody. Yes, talent is a certain part of it but really it's the amount of work you put in”. Q.What is the worst advice you've ever received? Learn to speak with an American accent! Although it could've been good advice actually. There are a couple of times where it could have been good for me to be able to do that, there is a sitcom and they were casting for a journalist in a small-town America. They really liked me but they asked me to do an American accent and that would have been okay as that's acting. So I sent them a self-tape and it was so bad! However, that's one occasion where that could have been okay to do. Q.What advice would you give to your 50-year-old self? I think what I would say to my 50-year-old self is “it’s never too late.” I think that's the big piece of advice if there's something that you’ve always really wanted to do it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks. It doesn’t matter if people are out there saying ‘oh you’re too old for that’ no, go for it and make it happen! When you’re 50 your dreams are going to be different than what your dreams are now, keep on dreaming up until the end. What does the word disruptive mean to you? I think that I am a bit disruptive if I am honest. It is shaking things up, not playing by the rules, it is doing things your way and adding some spice, sass and some sauce. BEST MOMENTS “Yes you can polish up, yes you can work on being the best version of yourself, but it really is about being true to who you are” “Look back on your own work, and make sure that you’re happy with where you’re going” “Make the most out of life, no matter what age you are” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Caffeine Cast: The (New, Social) Media for Business No-one is Talking About

Struggling to keep up with all the different types of social media? Are you wondering which one to use to promote your new business? In today’s podcast, Rob takes us through the social media that nobody is talking about in business...Whatsapp! Whilst many people use Whatsapp for communication in their day to day lives Rob gives us an exclusive look into how you can use Whatsapp to benefit your company, expand your business, increase sales and keep in touch with your customers and clients. KEY TAKEAWAYS People often talk about Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and LinkedIn as good social media sources to promote your business. However, many people overlook a common source of media that is widely used, which is Whatsapp. Adding Whatsapp into your social media marketing allows you to reach more people. The more sources of media you use, the more people you are able to reach. Having a community on Whatsapp usually means they are more engaged with you and follow you on every platform, offering them exclusive deals is well received and usually more successful than other platforms. Action plan for using Whatsapp. Setting up your own Whatsapp group. Generating a link that you can put online meaning others can click the link to join your group. Download ‘Whatsapp For Business’ meaning there is no restriction on how many members can be in the group. Create clear guidelines for members to follow so that users can enjoy the group for the intended purpose. Add value to the group, such as utilizing the voice note feature of the app, something that you are unable to do on other platforms. Use it to link people to important videos or product launches you have online that they may not have already seen. Use it to grow your other social media platforms. You can repurpose content used on your other social media platforms, as well as creating new content exclusive to the members in your WhatsApp group. As well as testing new content or ideas on your exclusive Whatsapp group members, if it is successful you can share that particular content on your other social media platforms. BEST MOMENTS “It has definitely generated hundreds of thousands of pounds” “They are the most engaged, the most dynamic and hopefully the best community members that you have” “When all is said and done, more is said than done”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

RANT! STOP Managing Time, Do This Instead

In this episode of This Disruptive Entrepreneur Rob explains how important it is to manage yourself because you cant manage time. He also talks about how you can effectively start to manage yourself by implementing habits.  KEY TAKEAWAYS You can manage yourself but you can’t manage time. You have the same amount of time as a billionaire so stop saying you don’t have time. If you manage your priorities then you will find it easier to have more freedom of your time. Something that can help you do this is the book Routine = Results. Often entrepreneurs dream of freedom but when you’re an entrepreneur you can often find that you loose routine so it’s important to manage yourself effectively and efficiently. Stop yourself from getting distracted from the tasks you have set. Isolate yourself until you have these tasks done in a way that you work best in (30minutes of work, 30 minutes off). Do what your need to do even if you’re not feeling it, this is being disciplined. If you’re not disciplined then you’re not managing your emotions. Do the tasks that are the best use of your time so that you stay on track, push your urges away by building habits. Don’t pretend to work by actively procrastinating, you’re the easiest person to lie to so be brutally honest and ensure the work you’re doing is actually bringing you progress. Getting accountability from other people can be a good way to get things done because you wont be able to lie about what you’ve done.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Time is managing you, you are not beating time’ ‘Discipline = Freedom’ ‘You cant manage time’ VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Q&A With Billionaire David McCourt on The Secret to Wealth

Rob is joined by Irish-American entrepreneur and billionaire David McCourt. David answers audience questions on how he got to be where he is today and what he hopes to do in the future, discover what it takes to solve business problems, curate and create million-pound ideas and learn how to start, grow and scale your own business. Tune in today for this insightful interview with self-made billionaire David McCourt. KEY TAKEAWAYS Q. How do you change your thought process to help you come up with different ideas? A. [David]I do one thing consistently, which is when approaching a problem I put myself in the future and I am able to see that problem already solved, I then turn around and look backward and I build a plan to get me to where I already am.  It can be overwhelming looking at a huge problem, people say “how did you have such vision to solve the problem?” It really wasn’t that amazing at all, because when you put yourself in the future, it becomes crystal clear to you what it is going to look like and then you have to build a plan to get there. A. [Rob] I would say, be the person that disrupts you, rather than someone else. I am very much a big believer in disrupting yourself. I want to disrupt my own patterns, behaviors, and habits before my competitors do. I am always trying to imagine, if I was a competitor of mine, what weaknesses would I see? I then try and solve those before someone else does. I challenge myself to follow people I didn’t think that I liked, to learn from people that have very different beliefs from me, because that can challenge the way I look at something. Q. How and when do you scale? A. [David]I personally, have never thought about business as having a goal to reach a certain size. I approach business as trying to solve a problem that I find would be interesting to solve and that the world needs to solve and through doing that you can make money. I look at it more as a problem that people say ‘that cannot be solved’ whereas I say ‘it can be solved’.  I don’t initially think about the size of the business, but if it is a big problem that nobody else has been able to solve before, then by definition you will be able to scale it. A.[Rob] There were three commonalities over the wealthiest people. One of those was the desire to serve vast amounts of people. Don’t just have a plan or a goal but if you have a genuine desire to serve vast numbers of people, then you will connect the dots along the way and take the opportunities and partnerships. The second thing, a concept called the network effect. This is essentially a way to get to as many people on the planet as quickly as possible. Q.  Who were your main mentors when you started out on your journey? A.[David] I am the first to admit, I had a huge advantage number 1 I had an unbelievable mother and father, and I had a mother that constantly taught me that it was okay to fail, that constantly taught me that I would be something and that I would accomplish what I wanted to accomplish. Having someone that supports you in your life, gets you 80% of the way there. I have had different mentors at different stages, I was on board just after I finished college, and on that board was the first public millionaire in America. I had never met a millionaire before and he said something that was very interesting, he said: “you have to make what’s important in your life instinctive, there are certain things that you are not going to have time to process, that you have to be instinctive”. After that, there was a man named Walter Scott, who was like a father to me. He taught me that taking care of your downside is the most important thing in business and the upside will take care of itself. My third was probably Jack Welch, he taught me a lot. A. [Rob] Out of all the successful people I know, I am one of the youngest. This is because I have pushed myself to have mentors who are 60 and 70 years old. I love having these mentors because they have so much more wisdom and experience than me so now I seek out being the youngest in a networking group. Everything that David fortunately had, you can create. Q. Did you leave the ladder or are you continuously putting those ladders down for people? A.[David] There is nothing that gives me more pleasure, that putting the ladder down for someone else. It is really an ugly characteristic that some people have. Once they make their money they want to distance themselves from people so that others aren't able to have it. There is nothing more rewarding than putting the ladder down for the next person to climb upon. I have made a lot of money, given a lot of money away and lost a lot of money, and I can tell you for sure, the difference between the times I have had money and when I haven't,  there is no difference, if what you’re trying to do with your life is create something. Q.  What one world problem would you solve ? A. [David] If I could only solve one problem, I think if we can instill the sense of hope and dreams that America had 50 years ago back around the world, then we could solve all the problems. The America that I grew up in is a very different place than what it is today. That country of hope and dreams where anything is possible if we worked together is what could solve problems. The big ones are healthcare, housing, and education. The costs of these three are all growing faster than wages so by definition you can’t catch up. So if you’re growing up thinking that you will never be able to catch up, that is a terrible and dangerous place to be in. That is the world that we’re living in now, and that is the problem that we need to fix. A. [Rob] The first time I met David, he told me “The world's biggest problems are also the world's biggest business opportunities right now”. It is easy to look at people that are the champions of dramatic change globally and forget that we can make a difference ourselves. There became a point where I looked around and noticed members of staff and thought “they’ve all got jobs, they’re all paying their mortgages and they’re all receiving benefits” I think it is easy to forget the value you make as an entrepreneur, I think a company done in the right way is one of the best ways to create value. Q. Do you ever feel that you don’t know enough to get to where you want to be? How have you dealt with it? A. [David] I sometimes get a feeling, that time will run out before I accomplish everything that I want to accomplish. I worry about whether I have enough time to love all the people I want to love, meet all the people I want to meet and to go to all the places I want to go to. I worry about that every day, which is why I have to figure out a way to do it at scale. I don’t feel that I should be doing anything different than what I am doing or that I am wasting my life. Am I worried I don’t have enough time? Yes. Am I worried I am doing things wrong? No. I don’t have a fear of failure, because I am a happy, healthy guy so I am 99% of the way there anyway. BEST MOMENTS “Having someone that supports you in your life, gets you 80% of the way there.” “Everything that is important in your life has to be as instinctive as being able to pick up a pencil when you drop ii, and that will free up your brain to be able to process the new incoming things” “What's the worst that can happen? You could become a starving artist and you might like it!” “I was born curious and optimistic”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Caffeine Cast: How to Improve Yourself Constantly & Easily (LIVE)

Tune in today as Rob Moore talks us through his self-development techniques and how you can apply them to your own personal growth journey. From choosing the right mentors to who to follow on your social media platforms, Rob describes the best ways of supporting your personal growth to enable you to become the best version of yourself on your entrepreneurial journey.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  Some people do not believe in property training and believe you can learn everything using the internet or learning from making your own mistakes in the real world following the mantra “If you want something done properly do it yourself”, when a more realistic approach would be “If you want something done properly, give it to someone who is good at it”. Many individuals are trying to fix things that are broken, that we’re no good at fixing and as a result, end up breaking it even more.   Having mentors, coaches and therapists who are people to talk to, who do not judge so that you are able to have a cathartic exorcism of your inner demons, is vital.   Always seek out mentors or people that are one or two levels higher than you. The upside of having a paid mentor is accountability, and what you can demand of them.   Try to work out a time in the day where you feel less lethargic and make sure these are productive, such as listening to podcasts, working out or making phone calls. Getting more into the day is a brilliant way for self-development.   Follow all the top influencers, in the area that you want to develop. For example, if you wanted to get into something new, such as podcasting, building a new personal brand or promoting a new business, you’re wise to find as many influencers and experts as you can. You can do this by subscribing to their podcast, following them on Instagram etc.    Make yourself progressively uncomfortable is self-development. This would include, reaching out to people that are bigger players and risking getting rejected by bigger players, going to big events and being the least successful person in the room.   Watching documentaries on wildly successful, passionate, disruptive and unique people is inspiring.  Self-development is a lifelong pursuit, however there are some curses such as being overwhelmed. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin. Be smart enough to filter the information and do the one thing nobody else can do for you which is deciding what to implement into your own life.    BEST MOMENTS  “If you want something done properly, give it to someone who is good at it”  “Self-development is a lifelong pursuit”  “I think you go a mile wide, and an inch deep when you’re in research mode”   VALUABLE RESOURCES [Text Wrapping Break]https://robmoore.com/  ABOUT THE HOST[Text Wrapping Break]Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

RANT: How SELFISH Should You be in Business?

How Selfish Should You be in Business? The answer is not what you think, it depends where you’re at in your business journey. In the beginning, you need to more selfish and self-centred but to grow you need to be more selfless and focus on value, service, contribution and fair-exchange. In today’s insightful episode Rob shares with you his views on being fulfilled in business, being selfish to reach your goals, the growth in being selfless and finding a balance between the two. Jump in now to learn more. KEY TAKEAWAYS When you’re younger you’re probably more selfish and self-centred, but that’s okay. That’s the stage of life that you’re at. Your goals when you’re younger are more selfish and focused on yourself. However, you get to a point in business that you realise that if you only focus on your selfish goals, your company will not grow any more and you have to focus on value, service, contribution and fair-exchange. To begin in business you need to be selfish to get the thing going and get out of debt. But there does come a point where all people care about is how you can help them. If you want to create worth for the world, you need to have inner, strong self-worth. If your self-care is low and you’re not giving enough, you will resent your customers if you’re not earning enough income or receiving enough gratitude. Too self-less you’ll come from a place of emptiness, your self-worth will go down and you’ll come from a place of bitterness, resentment and envy and you’ll be caught in a vicious cycle. Too selfish and you’re not focused on value, service and contribution and the world will start to reject you. There will be service complaints, refund requests and you’ll start to get critics, trolls and hatters if you are too selfish. No one cares if you’re a billionaire if you’re not helping to change the world. Therefore you need to make your vision and mission self-less by helping others and you’ll be fulfilled The secret to business is value and what you give the world. Be selfless, give your time, mentorship and help and support. Give but not at the expense of you. Compartmentalise your diary to spent two to three hours a day I ringfence for contribution or value. This can be in the form of social media, consultancy calls, emails and anything you’re doing to help the world, without charging a fee for your services. Find the optimum time for contribution, charity and support and the optimum time for earning money, running your business and growing your audience. You should be equally balanced between selfish and selfless and more selfish in the beginning to fulfil your own needs to start your business and more self-less once you’ve become a little bit more successful. BEST MOMENTS “The secret to living is giving” “You cannot give what you do not have” “I found out in my thirties that there was more to life than just fulfilling my personal goals” “You cannot give from an empty cup” “Sometimes the best way to help others is to help yourself first” “If you’re already making lots of money but you’re unfulfilled it’s because you’re not giving enough” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Glenn Jacobs: WWE Chokeslam Legend KANE Turned Mayor

Rob is joined by wrestling champion turned Mayor of Knoxville County, UAS Glenn Jacobs, otherwise known as Kane. Glenn takes us through his epic 30-year career with WWE, his successes and failures and how he ended up running for office and winning! Tune in today for this insightful interview with an industry legend. KEY TAKEAWAYS Q.What would you say you most identify with? (In reference to his many different job titles e.g Professional wrestler, Actor and Mayor) A.I don’t know if I could say anything is more important than the other. I think that all too often we judge people by what they do instead of talking to people and taking them that way.   Is there any part of your journey/career that you enjoyed most? I really enjoyed wrestling, it was wonderful to be out in front of crowds and it is very gratifying when people come up and want to shake my hand. That is amazing, touching people's lives emotionally. Now in a different role, I am having a lot of fun in a different way, I feel like I am having an impact on my community.   Q.How did you get into becoming Mayor? I’ve always been interested in government politics, one day I woke up and thought that I can run for office, and win. It is the idea that you can have an impact on your community and you can’t always make things turn out certain ways but you can certainly have an influence on how they turn out.   Q.Have you had this vision of having many different careers from an early age? My life has been very much like how Mike Tyson described “everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”. Every time I’ve had a plan to do something it fell apart and other things popped up. I do think, having a goal in mind is very important, but life is very complex and you have to be flexible and realize that life won’t always go the way you want.   Q.Do you have any fear of failing in a career? A.Failure is a huge obstacle. I have failed at a lot of stuff, the more you fail the more you realize that that's not the end of the story, you’re going to be able to come back from that and go on. In many cases, failure is a positive, because if you never fail then that means that you did not try and you’re not stepping out of your comfort zone.   Q.How did you settle on the character ‘Kane”? A.We talk about failures, I certainly had some. There is no prescribed path to get to WWE everybody does it differently. I would drive 200 miles to work for free just to get experience, it wasn’t much fun! Eventually, I networked and worked my way u and was able to sign with WWE. I had several characters that weren’t very successful the character Kane was then created for me and that was my big break. You have failures, but on the way, you learn things and I was able to prove to  WWE that I was an asset to the company.   Q.What made you succeed in that career for thirty years when other people only last a few years? A.I was very fortunate, I didn’t get hurt very often. It’s also about your attitude, having the right attitude takes you a long way realising that you’re contributing to the company. Too often people go to their employer and ask ‘what’s in it for me?’ what they should be doing is asking ‘what can I do for my company?’ That is what makes you valuable. My ability to put my company's interest first was why I was able to stay around for so long.   What changes did you want to make as Mayor and what is your vision? A couple of priorities that we’re working on are mental health and substance abuse in our community similar to many other communities across the USA. Those two things are at the root of other issues that we’re facing. Another thing is looking at how we can prepare our workforce for the rapidly evolving global economy. If you look at all the things happening in the global economy, innovation has become the driving economic engine and how do we prepare our workforce for that and take advantage of that?   Q.What is the best advice that you’ve ever received? A.I am the one responsible for my life and nobody else is. It doesn’t matter if things happen to me that ain't my fault, I am the one that is going to have to deal with it, and I have to take ownership of things.   Is there one thing wrong with the world, that you would love to change? We don’t talk to each other. We scream and yell and each other a lot and we all have a different viewpoint, and we don’t listen enough.   Q.What does the word disruptive mean to you? A.Concepts and ideas which come in and disrupt the current economic paradigm, but actually end up improving it.   BEST MOMENTS “In life a lot of times, the things that happen to you, you don’t have any control over. What you think are tragedies at the time, really turn out the be the best thing that could’ve happened to you”   “I’ll wrestle anyone if it’s for a good cause!”   “My toughest opponent was dealing with how to overcome the fear of failure”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Caffeine Cast: The Patience Paradox (& the NEED for Speed)

This episode Rob discusses and explains the importance of being impatient whilst also not being too impatient that you end up chopping and changing ideas. Also discussed in this episode is the commodity of speed in this current time period especially because of social media and the way technology’s moving. KEY TAKEAWAYS The paradox of patience vs impatience is that you know you need to endure and give your product/service to mature in order to pay you back. If you’re not putting enough work into your smart work not hard work, leverage, systems, processes and staff, then you’re not enduring challenge and resilience so you’re not going to build a business and brand and scale. Be done rather than perfect because you can always make changes and improvements but you’ve got to be first to do it. Have some impatience with your staff and team so that you’re first but not to fast that you’re too unrealistic. The longer that you’ve done something, the better you will be at getting your products out quickly but not too quick. Usually when people get something out quickly their method isn’t usually the right one for you.   BEST MOMENTS ‘You have to work hard enough to not have to work hard’. ‘Impatience is actually a good thing as an entrepreneur’. ‘Nowadays speed is a commodity’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Steven Bartlett: CEO of Social Chain, Social Media Mogul by 23

“Success is so easy to achieve” In this special episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur, Rob interviews  CEO of Social Chain, Award-Winning Entrepreneur, Speaker & Investor, Steve Bartlett. They discuss what it takes to be successful, what skills, knowledge and information you need to acquire to scale-up your business and why mentors, marketing and finding the perfect balance can lead to a happy work, welfare and world. KEY TAKEAWAYS Knowledge and education are one of the most crucial things that you can do for you to be successful in your life or business. You may drop out of school because you have maybe found a business opportunity, and you go and start that business and it makes you money for the first time, but then you realize that you need to improve your skills in running this business. For you to do this, you need to learn what you need to do to acquire better skills and run your business perfectly leading to scale-up in your business. With mentors, you get to be advised if the path you are taking is the right one, and with this, you get to make well-informed decisions. Mentors may also give you some great ideas on what to do to better your life or your business. When you make a product, you don't expect people to come right away and buy from you and they do not have any information about the product and what it can do for them, you have to advertise it. Let people know about your product. Hire a marketing professional if you have to because marketing is also a key factor in the success of your business. After this, you will now have the sales that you want because people are aware of what you are offering to them and they want to try it. Why you need to go public as a company. It's a really good way to keep control of the company while raising significant capital to achieve growth. When you're thinking about how to raise capital when you're at the stage where you've got several options, you can get private investment, VC investment, a lot of these come with a lot of restrictions and covenants and issues, going public presents you with a different set of issues, but a set of issues that is more conducive with you controlling the direction of the company and being able to achieve ambitious growth. Have a great team behind you that is always looking out for you and always wants what’s best for you. Having a great team will help you balance your personal life, your business life and even the growth of your business will be great. Do not exchange your purpose for money, that is, never sell that thing that makes you wake up every morning because if you sell it even for millions of money, what will you do with all that money now that you don’t have any purpose in your life? Most probably you will just waste all that money on irrelevant things. Life is an infinite game and the perfect balance for you is to be ambitious and to go after worthy causes while realizing that you don't need to achieve them. Work, welfare and world, this is what you should do in your personal life or business life for you to be happy. You need the funds to do the business and that’s why you need to work, you need to fly to Germany or take six months leave for vacation and still come back or pay a therapist, and that’s the welfare your business should give you, that is, being sustainable, and then the impact you make to the world, be it donations or whatever. Believe in yourself and you will see wonders. If you have a great idea and your instincts tell you it's a great idea, go for it even when people try to tell you not to do it. To be an entrepreneur, you have to be willing to take that risk for you to succeed in life and business. BEST MOMENTS “When organizations they go public after change a lot because the financial reporting changes drastically.” “As entrepreneurs, if there isn't a girlfriend or there aren’t kids or there isn't something else that's making you create time, then you'll just fill it with work.” “Balance is a bit of a myth for entrepreneurs because the business always feels like the priority.” “Buy nice things, but don’t buy them into the pretence that they're going to make you feel better about yourself.” “Do not exchange your purpose for money.” “You are already enough.” “Happiness is defined as progress towards a worthy goal.” “The best journeys are ones where you never arrive.” “It’s a misuse of energy and time to prove people wrong, you have so many people that already care for you.” “Those who think they can and those who think they can't are both usually right.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE GUEST Steven is the 27-year-old CEO Founder of Social Chain which uses owned media, marketing and technology to build Social Brands.

Caffeine Cast: One VITAL Entrepreneurial Skill Rarely Talked About

In today's episode, Rob talks us through one of the most important skills you can have as an entrepreneur, managing and mastering your emotions. Rob dives into what could trigger your emotions and gives some top tips on how to manage them and stop them affecting your future success and enable you to be the best version of yourself! KEY TAKEAWAYS -Most important factor in your entrepreneurship or business that will determine your success or failure is how you manage and master your emotions.   - Emotions are triggered by your previous experiences which have formed and created an emotional response or reaction. It is not a conscious thought, it is an unconscious reaction to the environment or people.   -You are not your emotions, your emotions are reactions and feedback to the environment and places and people. They are also your past experiences appearing as a feeling.   -If your emotions hijack you, you end up becoming a ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ type personality, whereby when you’re logical and not triggered you are acting based on your own pure thoughts and actions and desires. However, when you become triggered and emotional you become a non-true version of you.   -Mastering your emotions is understanding what they are and how they’re triggered, and then controlling and managing them.   -When you experience people, you don’t experience them as they are. You experience them as you are, through your own emotional response to them. This is not your conscious mind, this is your unconscious mind or your body-mind.   -Your reactions to your clients, critics, staff and partners are all based on your past experiences being dragged into the present and therefore are affecting your future and this is not the truth.   -Managing your emotions is: Step 1: Notice when you get triggered. Step 2: Understand where that emotion came from. Step 3: Understand that that is happening to others.   -Significant emotional events in your past are triggering your present and dictating your future. If you let the emotions get the better of you, then you’re letting the past dictate the present which will ruin the future.   -Never make important decisions when you are emotional. Always make them when you are logical, calm and not triggered. Learn to smile, be calm and still and walk away.   BEST MOMENTS “This is not life, this is how you perceive it to be.”   “The maximum growth is on the border of support and challenge”   “Master your emotions and you master your entrepreneurship”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

RANT: How NOT to Deal With Rejection (Solutions)

Rejection is hard, but far too many of us take it badly. This can be damaging to you, your environment, and most certainly your business and its growth.   In this episode, Rob tells you the best ways not to take rejection, what not to do when you get rejected, how you can turn rejection into something positive, and the ways in which you can take action beyond.  KEY TAKEAWAYS There are two damaging extremes when it comes to taking rejection and how you act upon it, both of which will hurt you and your business badly:  Angry, critical, defensive, aggressive, passive-aggressive, emotional and controlling behaviours.  Retreat, hide, aggressive self-analysing followed by internal scalding.    Reacting badly to rejection only reinforces the belief that whoever did the rejecting did the right thing! It’s not about taking rejection; it’s about how you handle that rejection. Acting like a child won’t make anyone change their mind.    It’s not personal - Rejection is never personal. The pain we experience in the wake of rejection often leads us to believe, falsely, that the rejection is very personal, but rejection is almost always about the place they are in, the way in which we approached them, or their circumstances at the time.    Don’t take rejection based on how you feel, or your perceptions - The feelings of pain or inadequacy caused through rejection are reflections of some past pain or experience, and can cause wrongful associations with those previous episodes.    Don’t take it based on the present - Rejection often triggers an incredible sense of insecurity, and can conflate the sense that the present moment is ruined and will have lasting effects on the present.     Do not take it as one-sided - Don’t assume that rejection is all negative. There are an equal amount of upsides to being rejected.     Make sure that in the wake of rejection, you do not lash out; you do not seek revenge; you do not inflict the pain you are feeling upon someone else! In the height of emotion, we generally say things we do not mean, and almost always regret the things we do. It may also ruin people’s perception of us going forward.    Make sure you don’t try and exercise some kind of emotional-based leverage on someone - Guilt-tripping or emotional blackmail are not qualities that will encourage anyone to want to pursue a relationship with you in the future.    Don’t turn it into something that means more than it does - Rejection doesn’t mean that your health, wealth or finances are ruined. Compartmentalise the rejection and don’t let it spill into your other interests.    Don’t publicly react or turn to the internet to rant - All you’re doing when you display your negative reaction, is widening the field of people who won’t want to deal with you later.    Don’t beat yourself up - Remember that rejection is almost never personal. Don’t take rejection too hard as it’s likely to have been entirely circumstantial.    Never retreat - In the wake of rejection, it can be damaging to assume that you must never try again. You have to keep coming back, even if it means more rejection.    Take it graciously - You might be feeling the polar opposite, but smile, breathe and don’t speak. Think, wait, and be kind. This will allow you an elegant response borne out of patience and consideration.    Be grateful - Look for ways to be grateful. Be grateful that you got a response. Be grateful that they considered your request. Be grateful for the opportunity to seek feedback.    Rejection always has a balanced equal upside - There’s a lesson in everything, even in the negative experiences. Rejection is growth, learning, a test, and a sign of your own bravery.    Let the emotion pass - Don’t associate the feelings of hurt with past experiences, because this is nothing like that. Don’t let the past damage the future and the present.    Rejection is a logical, natural, normal event or step towards success, growth and progress. A prerequisite of success is that you will have to experience multiple forms of rejection, so each one should be seen as a further step upwards.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We all act like a child from time-to-time’  ‘It’s rarely, if ever, about you’  ‘When people are emotional they immediately react!’  ‘When you master this, you master life’  ‘You’ll be in a washing-machine of being triggered’  ‘One failing does not make you a failure’  ’The emotion triggers the action’  ‘Gratitude is a gift, so rejection is a gift if you’re grateful for it’  ‘If you stop and shoot at every dog that barks, you’ll never get to your destination’  VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

10 Essential Hacks For Linkedin in 2020

LinkedIn can be a huge tool for you in 2020 if you know how to use it. LinkedIn gives savvy entrepreneurs and business owners a huge advantage and level planning field to expand their reach and increase their engagement. Join in and hear how Rob is utalising LinkedIn to maximise reach and generate high converting inbound leads at a cheaper cost. Discover how to expand your reach, what style of posts you should be sharing, how to generate regular inbound leads and the importance of recommendations. KEY TAKEAWAYS The LinkedIn platform gives you a huge advantage and level planning field for everyone. It does not restrict your reach your connections. With Facebook and other social media platforms, you’re likely to only reach 3% of your audience and only your first stage connections will see your content, however, with LinkedIn, your posts and your content reaches second and third stage connections.   On LinkedIn, it’s easier to get your post seen by many more people and as a result, gain new connections. If you’re a marketer you’ll pay around £5 per lead and If you’re a salesperson each follower should be worth £1-£5 per person per year so LinkedIn is a great opportunity to increase your network. 10 Tips To Make LinkedIn Big For You In 2020     The optimum for LinkedIn posts is one post per day. The most important thing for posting is gauging the reach (views) this can be enhanced with LinkedIn lives although you will need to test for the optimum length. Additionally know your target market and tailor your content to that demographic. When posting cycle on engagement-jacking posts, one-story based post, four content-based posts and finally one offer based post. However, when you add a link into your post it can decrease your reach. Varying your posts and ‘content’ marketing is the best way to create leads on LinkedIn. Remember to share your stories of success, be personal and spark engagement/emotion, it’s important to remember your goal is to reach as many people as possible. Finally, with your offer based post ensure you’re offering a low price product or asking for those interest to directly message you. This will generate inbound leads. The first hour is the most important. Your post might reach up to 3% of your audience initially, however if you get engagement (like share or comment) in that first hour then your post will be pushed to 2nd and 3rd stage connections. Make sure to keep that hour free to engage with your posts and as a result, increase your engagement. Posts, articles, videos and documents are the four types of posts that you can put on LinkedIn. Documents are a relatively new feature but is getting really positive reach. This is a good way to increase our reach, for example write a bullet point list, upload it as a PDF and LinkedIn will convert this to a Slideshare and each click through your document/slides will register as engagement. This is a good way of increasing your reach and connecting with new audiences. LinkedIn lives posted once or twice per week can create really good engagement. Focus on getting and giving recommendations. If you give one it will DM that person and they will likely return the favour. Over time you will get good recommendations and your following will increase. SSI (Social Selling Index) This is the way LinkedIn score your profile and your posts. It’s important to keep this high as this will affect your posts reach and engagement. Add connections properly. You can search via job, demographic, title and more, it’s wise to only add connections of that niche and therefore only accept connections from that demographic.   BEST MOMENTS “Keep testing because the algorithms are changing” “If you post and then share a link a little bit later it won’t kill your reach” “You have to do the content marketing thing to generate inbound leads” “LinkedIn can generate the best leads because they’re business people” “Embrace haters, trolls and critics as they will spark debates” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT: When You're Feeling Sorry For Yourself...(Do's & Don't's)

Have you been hit with the January blues? Are you feeling a bit down in the dumps and unsure how to get back to 100%? Join us today for one of Rob’s Rants to see how you can overcome your emotions in the easiest and quickest way and get motivated to achieve your business goals. Rob talks us through how we can push ourselves to overcome the downtimes and allow ourselves to reach our full potential. KEY TAKEAWAYS We all have our moments in life when we feel sorry for ourselves, have our down days and need some help and support and that is okay, most people in life go through this at some point or other.  Here are some tips to help overcome these emotions and how to let these moments in our lives have minimal impact on our goals and growth. Select the right people to speak too. Make sure it is people you know and not on social media sites or to people you cannot trust. Talk to friends, family, therapists or mentors who have your best interest at heart and who won’t judge you. Get permission from the right people. Ask them when the time is right to seek their advice. Who doesn’t like being asked for help when others are struggling? Isolate yourself from emails, social media, etc when you’re triggered or emotional. You will write and put things in the public domain that you will regret later. You must avoid toxic people when you’re feeling more vulnerable. People that will use your mental state against you, hurt you or judge you. Allow some time for wallowing, however, shorten it and move on. Do something about it! Stop moaning and start fixing the problem. A great thing you can do is move, go for a walk, go to the gym and get some energy. Why do I feel like this? What has triggered me? How can I change? How can I be the change I want to see in the world? Get out of problem mode and into solution mode. Could you meet your needs somewhere else? How else can you get that need met other than to people who aren't going to serve you? Could you have a therapist, a mentor or a coach? Could you create a blog about it, a podcast series? You can turn it to good in the world. Make sure you have wise counsel around you. Gratitude, you cannot feel genuine gratitude and any other negative emotion simultaneously. Practice gratitude. Gratitude it harder when things aren't going your way, practice it and be thankful for things that you do have.   BEST MOMENTS ‘motion creates emotion’ ‘Fixing mode is a very powerful mode’ ‘you cannot feel genuine gratitude and any other negative emotion simultaneously.’ VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

My 12 Biggest Trends of 2020 (for Entrepreneurs) (& 3 for 2030)

For all of the entrepreneurs out there wishing for 2020 to be their BIGGEST year yet, this episode is for you. Discover Rob’s 12 big trends of 2020 and beyond. Get ahead of the competition, learn the insider knowledge most entrepreneurs won’t ever know and unlock the keys to growing your business in 2020. KEY TAKEAWAYS These are the 12 biggest trends for 2020 for entrepreneurs. Data portability. New social media platforms and online platforms allow you to own your data and put your data from platform to platform, this could be something that could be huge because, at the moment, your exchange for getting free content and usability on social media platform is, of course, being fed ads, but you're giving your data which they analyze, some of them have shared and leaked. So data portability and platforms and social media offering new services where you still own and retain your follower and data could be huge. Climate, planetary and humanitarian business. The world's greatest problems of climate, Planetary and humanitarian are also the entrepreneur’s greatest opportunities. So if you can change the world, save the planet, make a difference ethically in a humanitarian way and create a business opportunity around it, you could go huge and there are real business opportunities around that. The movement for premium content. Essentially, you’re getting paid for better quality content. Early or new or different or unique or better or for a closed community or inclusive, these are all premium based content models introduced in social media platforms. Connection and people's continued need for connection despite AR and robotics. Despite all these predictions, machine learning, AR, Internet of things, voice command, online, robotics, there's also an anti-movement, whereby people crave more than anything human connection. There's also going to be an increase in the need for human connection because humans are still humans. The positive economy. In the last few years when you predicted the property market or the economy has been a bit of a bearish view, but because Brexit is hopefully finally over and because we've got someone who will go in and make decisions, we're going to have some good positivity, finally, we can do business. Finally, we can start trading abroad and we can figure out how we are going to be having trade relations with Europe now that we're coming out and it's going to happen hopefully more quickly. The movement of currency and things like crypto and mobile payment evolution. AR, machine learning, internet of things and cryptocurrency will start to become huge, it's probably going to happen a little bit slower, but it often does. It often takes longer even though it's happening already. Be among the first people who know about this and you will be successful. The continued cutting out the middleman. If you can go straight to the consumer and cut out the middleman and therefore give pass the savings on to the consumer, you're going to grow, you're going to make more profit, and they're going to get a better service. Business over the years has had a lot of middlemen and a lot of people taking a slice. And so if you think about it, selling your property online and cutting out the estate agent, that's been a big thing. Cutting wealth managers out and managing your wealth and getting a better education, that's been a big thing also. Profit overgrowth and ethics over a scale. If you think in a more profit overgrowth, and ethics and sustainability and human over scale, in the 80s and 90s, it always used to be about the corporation. We're in almost like the age and the rise of the entrepreneur and the entrepreneurs can be more agile, they can react quicker to the customers' needs, and ethics are really important in business now. And it's not that you should need it for a selling point, but how you look after your customers, how you look after their data, how you look after your employees is what is going to be your selling point. Stories to lead the news feed. Stories are more personal. It's another way for Facebook and Instagram and other platforms to evolve the look and feel of their platform to keep you engaged. Ultimately another way to start running ads, start posting on your stories more, start figuring out stories more, it will benefit you. The evolution of voice. Voice recognition. There's Siri, there's Alexa, there's Google and more and more people are using voice. And I think there are two things one is the voice technology is going to be better and become more ubiquitous. You're going to walk into your house and you can say, turn the TV on, turn the lights on. As a business owner, you want to make sure that you're searchable on voice; you're going to want your own voice identity, your voice brand. The gig economy and the continued short term nature of contracts and employee happiness. More short term contract, more remote working, more transient labour force, that's going to continue, at the same time, though, a culture and a team and is also going to become important, employee happiness and engagement and culture is the knock-on the importance of the gig economy. If people are working more remotely, if they are working more short term contracts, if there's more flexibility, if they want time and location freedom, and that is a movement, great, and that's going to become, I think, more prevalent. If you want to grow a team and retain staff, you've got to now look after them and their happiness and their culture and creating a workplace that they want to be in and their benefits and what you do for them The rise of the social media consultant, the videographer, the digital agency etcetera. The social media consultant, the digital agency, the videographer, the editor, these people are now really highly sought after. They're the new trades are the social media consultant, the YouTube marketer, the digital agency, the videographer, the editor, the audio editor, the podcaster, because this is the new media and these are the new currency, these are the new jobs that are being created. This could be big for you. This could be who you could be employing or this could be your new business opportunity for 2020. BEST MOMENTS “Online and face to face connection, they dovetail and they work hand in hand, they're symbiotic.” “Reflexivity, it's not the actuality and reality, what's happening is how we feel about what's happening which creates the market.” “The lower the friction of payment and the higher the speed of transaction that you can have online, the more the providers and the gateways are going to earn, the easier and quicker it is for you to do business.” “The easier you make it for your customers to pay you, the more you make and the quicker you'll make it.” “People are more impatient, they expect things quicker, they don't want to queue, they don't want to wait on line and they don't want the page to load.” “You can’t have the upside without the downside.” “When change happens, many people lose out but the winners win big.” “It's survival of the fittest.” “It's not those who are the strongest, but those most adaptable to change.” “Space travel, space exploration and intergalactic land grab are going to be something that will be real in the next decade.” “The rise of the virtual influencer in the next decade.” “By the end of the decade, there’s going to be the nano medic or the self-medication.” “If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Rob In Therapy: My Deepest Content in 15 Years

“You don’t need to be broken to have therapy” Therapy comes in many shapes and sizes and it’s not just an answer for ‘the broken’ Therapy is essential for personal development, learning, coaching, gaining perspective and most importantly understanding who you are. Therapy is not something to be feared, seeing a therapist is not something that should be judged, it’s a path to a better and more positive mindset. Tune in to discover Rob’s reason for therapy and how it has helped him grow in business and in life.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  Personal development. Understanding who you are and how you work and how your mindset work and managing your emotions is not just vital, but almost the key determinant of success. Having mentors, doing courses, having a coach, having a therapist are some of the best ways you could ever develop yourself.  It’s the mindset and the emotional stuff that most people struggle with. When you’re struggling with yourself, you will struggle with everything that comes your way and success will not be your thing. This way, you need a therapist who will listen to your struggle and help you confront all your struggles, therefore, you will be able to face the challenges that the world gives you and come out a winner and thus you will be successful.  Most people perceived that there has to be something wrong with us, there has to be something broken to need a therapist. You may be too successful, but with success comes great responsibilities, challenges and sometimes you may feel lonely because you know you can't go to the next person beside you because you also know very well that they are also facing their challenges and this may break you inside and cause your downfall, instead of all this, you can pay someone who is paid to listen to people, and that is the therapist. Do not fear that people will judge you that you are messed up or have a problem since you know yourself, don't let people's limitations limit you.  The best thing about having a therapist is they don't know you, and because they need to know you from your childhood when you're building up the relationship and trying to let the therapist know you better, you might discover that it's not your current state which is the problem, your childhood was the problem and letting that thing out helps you to move forward with your life and not get stuck at one particular point. So you find yourself having those deep conversations that you couldn't have with people who know you, and this way, the therapist is now able to help you.  When you imagine people saying things about you even when they're not, 99% of the things that you worry about don't come true, but you worry about them anyway. When you do those personal development kinds of stuff like therapy, you learn that you're not the problem and you start to like that about yourself and learn to love that about yourself.  Understanding your earliest memories, and getting to know that younger you and having some sympathy and some love and some affection and admiration for that younger you, that is a great gift you can give yourself because let's be honest, when you two and five and six and things happen to you that make you feel pain, alone, rejected, you wouldn't have sympathy for you, you wouldn't be like bully yourself or beat yourself up or be hard on that version of you, you would care about that person, love that person, you would probably respect how that person dealt with that situation. If you can do that to yourself, take yourself out of yourself, look at yourself when you're young and the pain that you felt and the mistakes that you made and you just really appreciate and admire how that person dealt with that and what they did, that's going to benefit you in your adult life.   Who are you? Who is the child in you? What were the voids that you had? What were the pains that you felt from a very early age, I think it's a good thing for you to go there.  You may find some trauma, you may feel alone or wounded when you go through that, but if you can also see the gifts in who it made you and who it's making you become and if you can find a way to leverage that and turn that pain into gain for yourself and others, that is an amazing gift that you can give to yourself.   The most important thing to learn about business and life and becoming successful is managing your emotions, mastering your emotions, if you can shut up when everyone else is shouting, if you can speak up when no one else does, have the bravery and the courage to do that, if you can listen when others fail to do that if you can put yourself out there and take the arrows if you can be grateful for criticism if you could take the rejection and still be persistent. If you can say stay consistent when it gets hard, that is life mastery, that is business mastery right there.  BEST MOMENTS  “The skillset without the mindset will leave you upset.”  “In the last two months of therapy, I've learned more about myself than I had in the last 14 or 15 years.”  “It’s okay to ask for help.”  “You can never get deep enough when you talk to people, even if they're really good listeners because they tend to take the conversation down where they need to go.”  “Your voice becomes your values.”  “Your strengths are linked to your weaknesses; your pain is linked to your gift.”  “You don't just need therapy if you think you're broken, do it if you think you're struggling or if you think you're alone.”  “Love that child in you, be sympathetic for that child and forgive that child in you, forgive the people you perceived hurt that child in you, be grateful you've not had as big trauma as many other people.”  “You should realize that when people judge us, that's where they're at. “  “If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.”  “I don't think you need to be broken to have therapy.”  “Speed is good.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/   ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

10 Hard Lessons I Learned Last Year (My Biggest Year)

2020 is going to be BIG. But how can we fully start-up, scale-up and challenge ourselves in the New Year if we haven’t learned from the previous year? In today’s episode, Rob shares with you 10 of the biggest, hardest and most challenging lessons learned in 2019 and how it has helped him and his businesses prepare for the year ahead. Discover top lessons, trends, and insights from the Disruptive Entrepreneur himself. If you’re looking to grow your business this year, listen to this episode first.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  10 Big, Unusual, Surprising, Challenging & Hard Lessons Learned in 2019 to Prepare us to go Big in 2020.     Be careful what you wish for. You should wish for big things to happen in your life, but you should also note that as you do that, do not stay idle, have a strategic plan of how you are going to achieve those big things that you are wishing for. When planning your goals or when planning your year or whatever you want to achieve, you should also plan the challenges you are going to have. So it's like goal setting and fear setting. Goal setting is setting the goals, the fear setting is what will the challenges be? What difficulties might there be? What do we need to plan and prepare for in advance? What could blindside us?  With your biggest highs, comes your biggest challenges. With your biggest highs, not only can but comes your biggest challenges, your biggest lows, so you need to be ready for what you can't be ready for. Prepare and plan for the unexpected. Be ready for what you can't be ready for and be prepared for what blindside you. You never know what that is, but at least be ready for it, whatever it will be.  Stay patient. They say it takes 10 years to be an overnight success. I'm not sure if it takes that long anymore, but you certainly have to be patient. Do not be distracted by people who are achieving big things, you will also be one of them in a very short time.  You can also always outsource and leverage more. What happens is when you get to a certain level of outsourcing and leveraging certain levels of admin, then all you do is take on more, and then you have a high level of responsibility and then you get busy and overwhelmed again, but then you can take on the next level of outsourcing like a marketing manager or someone in sales and then an operations manager and then an MD, and then a CEO, and you become chairman and there's always another level of leverage and outsourcing. So what you find is you outsource stuff, you liberate your time and you think I'm done, but then you either get bored and you distracted and you need more because you need that important feeding, or you want to grow.   Every entrepreneur struggles with letting go. It doesn’t matter what level you're at, hiring staff, scaling, getting management in, selling your business, getting help on your brand, developing property projects, media and TV and PR, every entrepreneur even billionaires, they have challenges letting go.  You have to ask for help. So many people are struggling alone. They don't have mentors, coaches, they've not done a therapist, they don't talk to people, they're not in the right peer group, it's your responsibility, you can't sit there alone wishing for people to come and save you and support you, you've got to go and find those circles, you've got to get to the networking events, you've got to get in the right property Facebook groups, you've got to take me up on the one to one calls when I do them, you've got to come to the progressive events, you've got to get in the right network and the right circles, have the millionaires locally and take them out for lunch and dinner  People. Probably the greatest gift of life is the people that you meet, the experiences you have with people. Our victories are much better when we get to share them and your challenges are much better when you get to have help and share those with other people too. You learn a lot from them, you get inspired by them, you get energy from them. And also, it's really important to hang around with people in your peer group, to hang around with people above you, mentors, successful people, and more experienced in the niche you want to be successful in, but also hang around with people who are less experienced than you that you can help.  Realism, the upsides and downsides. Set big but realistic goals that you can be able to achieve. When you set unrealistic goals, you’ll be smacked on the face when life gives you some cold hard realities and difficulties and challenges.  What you think you know about people. Stop judging people, stop assuming what you think they think, and start listening and asking. You don't know people until you ask. You do not know what they mean until you ask.   Lessons from my therapy. You don't get therapy because you are messed up, some needs need to be met, you need to talk deep enough because some of these things are not addressed by the coach or mentor you have. Get a therapist and do not fear that people will judge you. This helps a lot. You will learn way more about yourself doing therapy than you will in many other areas.  BEST MOMENTS  “When planning your goals or when planning your year or whatever you want to achieve, you should also plan the challenges you are going to have.”  “You can't wish for one without the other.”  “Be specific enough with what you wish for and what you plan for.”  “Things break when you go big, staff leave, systems break, merchant providers break.”  “The bigger you go, the bigger the challenges go.”  “It’s really important to be inspired by those who are ahead of you but don't feel like you're not worthy. Be motivated by competition, but don't get distracted by them.

Even Deeper Results of Therapy (How to be Happy & Successful Despite Being Screwed Up) - (Mini Series Part 3)

Success is not achieved easily, you have to sweat for it and therapy is the key to achieving it. Therapy is personal development, the control of your emotions, the increase in your self-worth and the driver behind success. Tune in to this honest episode of the Disruptive Entrepreneur and discover Rob’s reasons for therapy, how you can overcome your fear, defeat what’s holding you back and use this advice to make 2020 your year. KEY TAKEAWAYS Success is not achieved easily, one has to sweat for it, and for you to achieve it, you need to do a couple of things and one of them is personal development. One of the most beneficial personal development things that you can do is having therapy. Having a therapist does not necessarily mean that you are broken, you can do therapy when you are feeling lonely or when you feel that there are some things that you need to tell someone who will listen to you, someone who will not judge you but someone who will help you face your problems. Do not listen to people who judge you when they hear that you are having therapy. When you listen to those kinds of people, weakness strikes because you will start judging yourself and this restricts you from thinking straight thus you will only be hearing success from others because you will never be successful. A therapist is someone who you pay to listen to you and you need this type of person because you need to have those deep conversations and you can’t have these types of conversations with people close to you, work colleagues or friends because they will always cut you in the middle of that conversation when they feel they need to add something they relate with. You first need to know yourself before you can be successful because you need to face your fears, maybe they are fears from your childhood and unless you talk them out to someone who will listen to you and guide you on how to face them, you will always be stuck and this will not help you in achieving success. The work you do on yourself and your personal development, your mindset, your emotional management, and control, how you feel about yourself and your self worth, that is all vital to your success. That is the reason you need a therapist. Believe in having mentors and masterminds and getting coaches and having a therapist, getting help from those that have been there and done it is the only best thing you can do to achieve success. Few people say you don't need mentors, you don't need to get help. You got to figure it out yourself. How do you figure out the baggage you had as a child, things that maybe you lacked, whether it's love from our mother or father, or some kind of abuse or loneliness or extreme challenge or significant emotional event? That creates these voids and these pains in us. That's hard to figure out yourself. You need a therapist to listen to you and guide you on how to face those fears and after this, success will come your way. BEST MOMENTS “People perceive that you have to be broken to have a therapist.” “99% of the things you worry about never actually happen.” “The skillset without the mindset will leave you upset.” “Believe in getting help from those that have been there and done it.” “Always say to yourself that this is me, this is who I am and it's okay.” “Without each other, we couldn't survive as a race.” “Your voids create your values, the pains and the gaps and holes in your soul drive what you want and what you shoot for and what you find most important in your life.” “If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

BONUS: How to Get HARDCORE Accountability to Have Your Biggest Year Ever (Mini Series Part 2)

Welcome back to The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast’s four-part special on mentoring, masterminds, and accountability! In this episode, we learn more about HARDCORE accountability. Let’s admit… it’s really difficult to stick to every schedule and task, especially when no one’s watching. It’s easy to let yourself off the hook. According to Rob, there are many ways on how you can turn things around easily and build the habit of being accountable. Sometimes, it’s just a change of mindset, a change of perspective. Let someone help you—get a mentor, join a Mastermind. KEY TAKEAWAYS Take yourself out of the equation. Let someone help you be on track with your plans. When it’s you keeping score of what you’re doing, it’s easy to be self-forgiving. It’s difficult to see what needs to be improved or changed. Having pain also helps. Some people get motivated by remembering their past mishaps. They learned and don’t want to make the same mistakes. Failures humble you, or so they say. Tricking and gaming yourself. Always challenge yourself to do something you’re not comfortable with so you always improve and grow. Don’t let yourself get stuck wherever you are. Keep moving. You’re responsible for your own results. Your mentor guided you, yes. But you also have to applaud yourself for continuously pushing and staying focused in reaching your goals.   Rob just launched a fitness Mastermind and so far 80 people are most likely to push through. Last year, he helped people lose weight and they altogether lost almost 10 kilos. Aside from this he also hosts other four masterminds. BEST MOMENTS “Don’t wait for the event; MAKE the event.” “If you take full responsibility for everything in your life every time, everyone will be rich, everyone will be happy.” “A want and a need are completely different.” “You have to own your results.” “You need to have a ‘today’ mentality.” ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

BONUS: Mentors, Masterminds & The Easiest Person to Lie To (Mini Series Part 1)

Make 2020 your biggest year ever. You can have your goals list ticked, get your sought-after wealth, have the biggest learning curve, and more if you improve or do things differently. In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, which is also part of 4-part special, Rob talks about the 6 rules you need to note when looking for mentors or masterminds to join into. No one can do things alone. Accept the fact that you need something/someone to improve and grow more. So quit wasting your time and energy and gain a new perspective today on how you can move smarter with others’ help. Aside from this, he also emphasises the importance of accountability when you’re in your pursuit for success and happiness so tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Someone’s failing can be your success. Learning from your own mistakes is one of the worst advice according to Rob. Instead, learn from someone else—someone who has experienced it, made mistakes and got back up from them effortlessly. One of the hardest things to do when you’re on your way to getting your well-deserved success is ensuring that you’re always accountable. It’s best we find a person who’ll help us be accountable, whether it be a mentor, masterminds, or colleagues. Just make sure he/she understands your vision and your own process, so there is an effortless communication. Rob was too egoistic at first to ask for help from anyone. He wanted to do it on his own, learn everything on his own. But that proved to be not working. He then finally let go and went searching people who can help him. Remember, no one is a self-made man. You’ve been consuming resources (made by someone), asking people for support ever since. It makes a difference to be grateful and recognise the help you’ve been given. 6 Rules for Getting Mentors and Getting into Masterminds Have they done what you want to achieve? Are they considerably further ahead of me? Have they got proven experience and results for other people? Are they accessible? Will they be honest? What’s the price? Mentoring is a one-to-one approach while Masterminds follows a one-to-many approach. BEST MOMENTS “If you want something done properly, go to someone who’s learned it already and learn from them.” “Everyone gets results when there’s hardcore accountability.” “The easiest person to lie to is yourself.” “NO one is a self-made.” “Invest in yourself wisely.” ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

RANT! Why ‘Burnout’ is Not What You Think...

If you’re fatigued, tired and moving in the wrong direction you’re probably working really hard on something you don’t like, working in an industry that’s dying or for a boss that you don’t like and as a result, you’re going to get burned out! Tune in to today’s episode to discover how to defeat burn out, what it really is and how you can avoid it by simply doing what you love. Rob shares his thoughts on how to overcome the challenges of burn out and how you can overcome then by keeping on mission and striving towards your vision.  KEY TAKEAWAYS   People get ‘burn-out’ wrong, they perceive it wrong and don’t necessarily know if they are in-fact burnt-out. Often people think you get burnt out by simply working hard, but this isn’t right. Some of the most inspirational people work hard every day and they don’t get burnt out.   A lot of people don’t actually work as hard as they think. If you look at your day there’s probably a lot of time where you’re not working because you’re not organised or have a proper routine in place.   As an entreprneur, you need to know when to have a break and focus on working on your business and not in your business. Learn how to leverage, outsource and how to ask for help. However, there’s also the time when you do need to work hard and hustle. It’s a balance.   Burn out is as much in your mind and how you perceive it as it is in a physical element. It’s a state of mind more than it is a state of the body.   Burn out is working hard and long on something that you hate. Something you’re not passionate or enthusiastic about or something that someone else is making you do.     The secret to burn out is simply doing more of what you love. Ensure your passion, profession, vocation and vacation are on mission. Everything you need to do needs to be on mission for your vision because even when things aren’t going your way and everything is against you, you’ll keep on moving forward because you’re moving in the right direction, towards something that you love.   To avoid burning out you can leverage the tasks that you do not like, you can outsource the tasks that frustrate you and you can free up your time to do the things that you love and overcome the issues in your business. You can work 10 times harder on the things that you love to do.     BEST MOMENTS “Do you think that Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk don’t work hard? Of course, they do, but they don’t burn out because they love what they do.“ “Some of the biggest challenges in my business are solved because I know what I’m bigger than the problem and I’m on the right path” “You can work 10 times harder on the things that you love to do”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

KEY TAKEAWAYS If you ever want to have a podcast that you can say is a success, first of all, you need to have a very captivating title for your podcast. The title itself should play part in advertising the podcast. When people hear about this podcast, they should be tempted to know more about your podcast. The venue where you'll be hosting your podcast is very, very important. It should be a place that is presentable or nice looking, it should be a clean one, the place should not be noisy or its surroundings should not be noisy to have an audible podcast. This also plays part in advertising your podcast. The host of the podcast should have the skill to entertain for the show not to be boring and he or she should also have the skill to engage with anyone in a conversation to get every detail for who he or she is interviewing. You should have content in your podcast if you want the podcast to be a success. Always bring fresh and never heard stories to your audience and the content should be captivating or content that many can relate to. Delivering new and inspiring content to your audience is another secret to having a successful podcast. Invite guests that have achieved extraordinary things, be it in the business world, in sports, in music or whichever area and the guest should be well known to the public. This helps in increasing the followers to your podcast. They should be people with great stories behind their success; they should be people with lots of good advice and ideas. Never invite a boring guest to interview them on your podcast. Invite guests that are inspirational to the public. You should have a team of workers such as cameraman, podcast editors and even directors because you can't do all this work on your own. Leverage that team for the podcast to be a success. You need the best equipment you can get and modern pieces of equipment such as cameras, microphones, computers, you name them, they should be of the best quality if you want to give quality work of podcasting. The host or the interviewer must have knowledge, experience, and confidence for him or her to perfect the show or podcast. He or she must not be overwhelmed while interviewing the guest, he or she should not fear the guest, he or she should ask anything that the public might want answers to. You should know your way around all the social media platforms so that you can be able to advertise your podcast and so that it can reach a lot of people out there such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and many others. This helps to grow your followers’ number and many people get to know about your podcast. BEST MOMENTS “Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.” “Podcast brings recognition to you and your brand.” “Recognition is good because it forces you to put more content or up the game of content creators out there.” “A lot of people worry that you need to produce really good quality content, yes you do, but quality can be a good rant.” “Good content should be short, punchy, real and relatable.” “Everyone's got an opinion on a celebrity, I will judge when I've sat down with them for 90 minutes.” “Disruptive is reinventing yourself, disrupting yourself, challenging yourself, reinventing your niche, your industry, when people think they can predict what you're going to do, you do something different, something disruptive, something courageous, being different, honoring who you are, showing the world who it is, creating a whole new model, creating a whole new industry, a whole new niche, and a whole new brand.” “If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: Why Passion is Overrated

If you’re in an airplane with 300 other passengers and you could have a passionate piot or a competent, committed and consistent pilot which would you take? Passion whilst important in the beginner can be an overrated trait for entrepreneurs and often acts as an excuse for poor judgment and ‘gut’ instincts. In today’s honest episode, Rob discusses the value of consistency, commitment, and persistence in business and why creating enduring success and longevity is far more important than just being passionate about what you’re doing.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Passion is often an excuse for being emotional, acting reactively and using your ‘gut’ instinct instead of propper diligence or research. When you start of and you don’t have the experience, passion can be an asset that makes up for what you currently lack, but you’re still lacking.   Enthusiasm is different from passion, it’s controlled. Passion is almost an uncontrolled emotion and enthusiasm shows commitment and an obsession for your business and customers. Puristance is keeping going despite the knockbacks whereas passion is uncontrolled excitement but persistence is the ability to just keep on going no matter the setbacks   Consistency and Commitment are longer burning traits then passion and will carry you further in business because there is something behind it backing it up, with passion there is no substance behind it and it will burn out over time. Often a lot of the things that make you wildly excited in business and the things that you’re passionate about don’t make you any money. There’s a lot of people using passion as an excuse in business and they’re passionate about so many things that in reality they’re passionate about none.   BEST MOMENTS “Every winner was once a beginner” “Every master was once a disaster” “Passionate people can lash out and be uncontrolled”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

David Lloyd: Tennis Champion to Titan of The Gym Industry

Interview with Junior Wimbledon Singles Champion and entrepreneur, David Lloyd. Rob and David discuss David’s journey from professional athlete to professional property investor what it takes to pivot from sports into business. Discover the mindset, skillset and work ethic needed to succeed as an entrepreneur and create sustainable and scalable income.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  If someone does not have the drive to do something or if his or her heart is not in that something that you want him or her to do, you can push them to do that thing but they are not going to do it. He or she has to have the heart of the talent in that particular thing for him or her to do it perfectly.  If you want any person to succeed in life, then what you have to do is listen to them and hear what they love and later on support them in that thing that they love to do, be it sports, business or any other thing. Encourage people to do what they love more than what they are told.   Dream big. Always have those dreams of success and always work towards achieving your dreams and you may never know, you might achieve your dreams in no time. Do not let any obstacles come your way and make you lose focus on your dreams.  If you can keep 95% of the people coming in your doors happy, you've succeeded, it's impossible to do 100% and you can do that with the price, with the quality of the equipment and the product that you are offering to your customers. Always focus on making at least 95% of your customers happy and you will always succeed.  For you to thrive well in the business world, you got to be confident in what you're doing and confident in the product you're delivering to your customers. Believe in your business, your product and you and the rest will fall into place.   Be prepared to learn if you want to venture into the business world and succeed. Take every little advice that you get from those who have a successful business and always maximize on that little advice. You also need to invest little money in developing yourself like paying for a business course.  In the business world, you have to accept both failures and successes. Learn from your failures so that you can do better next time.   Difference between entrepreneurship and corporation. Corporate companies scared of an entrepreneur making mistakes and doing his own thing which is not true. A good entrepreneur does the opposite because otherwise, you can't grow. If you can get most of your staff wanting to work for you, making them part and parcel of the family, then an entrepreneur can grow quicker than a corporate. An entrepreneur can be agile, making decisions happen quickly and then in these massive corporates, everything just takes forever.  You’ve got to be competitive for you to succeed in the business world. Always look at what your competitor is doing or producing and then make your product a better one than his or hers. Have that competitive spirit with a healthy friendship between you.  Market your product or services to the public if you want to have success in your business. Make what you are doing known to everyone. If you have to hire a salesperson in your company for your success, then go ahead and do it.  You should learn to become your independent financial advisor and learn to manage your own money and invest your own money because no one's going to manage it or invest your own money as well as you.  BEST MOMENTS  “Give people all the opportunities and encourage them along, but do not make them feel like nobody for them to succeed in life.”  “Your business can only be successful if your people working for you are part of it.”  “You've got to try and cut out in any business the things that can damage you or least lessen them.”  “An entrepreneur can grow a business very quickly, but in a different way to a corporate body.”  “If you can get most of your staff wanting to work for you, making them part and parcel of the family, then an entrepreneur can grow quicker than a corporate.”  “Competition forces innovation.”  “Sportspeople should start businesses when they're still playing, but not when they’re forgotten.”  “Don’t overestimate your income, and don’t underestimate your costs.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  ABOUT THE GUEST  David Alan Lloyd was born on 3rd January 1948 and is a former professional English tennis player and entrepreneur. He was born in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. He and his younger brother John Lloyd became two of the most successful British tennis players throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

To do myself and Mark needed to onboard trainers and mentors into Progressive Property so that they could begin to teach our courses and free up our time so that we can systemise our business and scale.      The strategic decision to step down from property and further pursue business was led with a post and announcement to our community and databases for accountability.    If I was giving myself feedback on my personal brand, I’d do a little less. I’ve got lots of books, 2 podcasts, 6 companies, and 20 different courses, but they’re all under the web of business and entrepreneurship.     It’s good to build a personal brand but also a company brand and by doing this it gives you the ability to scale, sell, leave and pivot into multiple verticles.     When launching your brand it’s important to have a 5-year plan and a vision of how the company will grow and your personal brand with it. As a result, it’s beneficial to call your business scalable name that can morph and change into what you want it to be in the future.    If you’re starting a business now and in particular property its worth setting up a personal brand also as you’ll find it’s easy to fall out of property and in love with the freedom, profit and choice it brings you.      BEST MOMENTS  “There came a point where my brand needed more reach and a higher level of abstraction”  “I never wanted to be labelled as just a coach”  “Business is a general passion of mine”  “There’s a lot of freedom and flexibility with entrepreneurship”    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Steve Smith: Poundland Founder on How to Sell Any Product For £1

In this episode, Rob went to the home of the founder of Poundland, Steve Smith. He set up Poundland in April of 1990, worked in market stools from the age of 2 and in 10 years, he built a business from zero and sold it for 72 million pounds and today Rob and Steve dive into what it takes to be successful business owner. Discover how to start, scale and exit your business? How to sell products for a pound and make a huge profit? Additionally hear the insider story of how Steve sold Poundland and what he’s doing now in the world of business.   KEY TAKEAWAYS   How do you learn when you want to figure something out? I never read the instructions. I always try and figure it out without reading instructions. If it is something in business that I need help with then because I am into people I know. I just pick up the phone… How did you invest the money that your dad loaned you to start the company? The first thing was we had an office to work from. Get the products in... We didn't need to spend any money on marketing because we have a lay of customers coming past the door. Because the products were really good, people would tell people. And as we were opening shop after shop, the important thing was the buying power. As the buying power came on, it's allowed us to do lots more with the product. So as soon as our turnover way 10 million pounds, we was importing which allowed us to get better buy products to make a little bit more margin. After your initial finance from your dad, did you borrow external money or was it funded through profit and cash flow of the business? It was all through cash flow in the business. The bank oddly loaned very little loaned us. So from the initial loan from my father, we grew everything, give it to cash flow. As we got better, landlords started giving us rent-free. We can open another store for less cash. So opened shop after shop. As we got bigger, Dave started working more on the shop side and I worked on the distribution on the supply chain and on the finance side. I spent so much time on systems. Our systems are fantastic. Always remember, KPMG came in to see us and said, "God, the top supermarkets would love your software..." So, from me and Trace in an office 1990 to employing almost 6000 people. Can you remember what the rough average margin was at the point maybe of selling that you sell for a pound, can you remember the margins on those? So, it's all about something that we created. Because always remember, everybody keeps saying you need more margin. And for me, it's not just about the margin, it's about the margin, it's about the margin, we come over the phone, come with the margin right to sale. Example, imagine we selling 4 package roll for a pound and let's say it costs us 50p, the 60p, we can sell 6. And they'll still be selling hundreds, you sell thousands of pack of 6, I make more money. I always press on value. Can you remember the best advice that you ever got? There are no by-products only bad prices. When the business was sold. How do you feel right then? It was like somebody has died in the family. So it was like somebody's died in the business and you never think about the money when you're growing a business, the money is always, yes it is what you are doing at the end of the day. The end result but as long as you are enjoying doing what you're doing, the money normally follows. Do you regret then selling? It would have been nice to see that business go through from 200 million to off a billion to a billion... What you regret is the people, working with the people. You miss working the people and the life that you have along with the journey. In intensive care and you think you've got 2 and half hours or whatever to live, in addition to what you said, what else goes through your head? any regrets? It is very difficult when you got 2 hours to live and your family and children are 8 hours away. Can you remember any bad advice that you have been given? I was remembering working in the market store, where everybody says, we're as crazy on the pricing. As we give a good vibe for money. And as so are you crazy working to achieve, you should put your price up and what we did, we think maybe we're wrong, and that maybe we should listen to him, and we put our prices up. And the first week, turnover, same turnover. Make double the amounts of money and really cough it. We're wrong. And second week, the turnover came down. The third week, came down. The fourth week, docked out the four. And it took us probably 8 months to get our customer flow back. Because people come, they buy off here. They just buy cause they are there but they don't come back. Why were you so keen to get store after store after store after store after store? Why didn't get to 5 or 10 and say that's enough for me? I used to love buying. Buying is all about buying power. And if you get more buying power, you can do more. Poundland, what would you say is or was unique about it? The concept. It's obviously unique that's everything is 1 pound because customer used to come into the shop and use to say, "I can't believe everything's a pound." And that is the question that drove the staff mad. And because we give such great value. How is business different now to the 90s? My wife still doesn’t let me have a day off... So, we've really been looking since I've sold Poundland for the next billion-pound business. Mobile payments is one. Another thing is recruitment. We do financial and banking. And we involved with Max Time which is time intended systems, so you put your finger in. It is something we developed in Poundland. Disruptive entrepreneur, what does that mean to you? If you take mobile payments, everybody used to do cash and credit cards. With mobile payments, we can totally change the way people pay for things. So, for me, I find that as disruptive. And were you driven by just what you want to achieve or were you to some degree driven by proven people wrong? Did you like proving people wrong? I don't think about proving people wrong. I just know if it's doable then we do it... It was about the people that we got around. I believe that the people around us can do it... But I do love to look at out of the box and think how can we do things differently. How do you juggle with these different businesses? We're involved with 16 businesses as of the moment. And it is really important that the people that you work with and the people running the business that you support them. Call them and they're there anytime time for them to pick up the phone and talk to you...   BEST MOMENTS   "If you've got an idea before you do it yourself, go on work for something." "You're only as good as what you know. Contacts are so important. You might not do business now but sometime in your life, if you think a person's good, you gonna do business with them. I'm doing business now with people give me a card 15 20 years ago." "At that time, I used to just been used to leading, making decisions everyday. It is hard to let go. Let go of your baby. But I decided to sell it." “The money allows you to do things, but I think life is about experiences. The money allows you to more experiences. The things that you remember most are the things that didn't cost much money. The things when you're growing your businesses. The things that you laugh about.” "For a pound, it must be rubbish. It must be seconds. People can't believe what we sold." "What you find, if you got the right team in place, you got the right idea, you got the right contacts, you don't take much money to set things up." "It was all about proving wrong and proving the concept. And it once we proved the concept then include the business and then sold it." “It's all about the contacts you build.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES   https://www.poundshop.com/   ABOUT THE GUEST   Steve Smith was a market stall trader at the age of 2.

Caffeine Cast: How to Sell on Social Media

If you want to get to make a killing on social media, leverage free online platforms for more reach and gain a massive online audience to grow your business, this is the episode for you. But if you’re looking to achieve these kinds of results you to need to know how to play the game. Discover the do’s and don’ts for making a lot more money on social media, the simple rule for creating great content and the secret behind identifying your perfect niche and your ideal clients. Tune in today with your host, Rob to find out more. KEY TAKEAWAYS   The Do’s of Social Media Selling Identify your niche and your ideal client before selling. Ensure you know exactly what your target demographic is. To find your niche all you need to do is find your the top 20% of your clients. These are the ones that buy the most, require the least customer service and refer new business. Figure out how you acquired them, what marketing is needed to engage with them and scale-up. Make sure you have accounts on every social media platform and you’re populating them with content regularly. Ensure it’s clear on all your profiles what you do and who you are. Join all of the niche related Facebook groups and also start your own. Get known and get seen. Before anything gives lots of value first. ‘Jab, jab, jab, right hook’ work out a ratio for your value content to sales posts and always engage in the comments, post on others posts and you will become known in your niche. Continue to do this and you will see the compounding effects of content marketing. Follow the 80/10/5/5 rule: 80% of the time your content needs to be on brand and focused on your niche. 10% of the time make it personal and cover what you’re doing. 5% of the time focus on newsjacking and building engagement to increase reach and comment on topical news. 5% of the time is selling, however it can be more profitable to sell to clients away from social platforms where they are more captive and you can get them in a sales verticle. Make sure you leverage all of the free social media out there including podcasts and know when you’re building your profiles and when to cash in on the platform” Focus on collaborations and joint-ventures. In the beginning, these may not be a 50/50 split as you grow but this will help you reach and help to grow your business and increase your following. Be persistent, consistent and patient. If you want to get the results that social media can bring you to need to play the game. The Don’ts of Social Media Selling Join a load’s open group Facebook groups and start spamming them for sales with pre-written sales copy and simply ‘copy & paste’ this method across multiple communities. Don’t go into a group and try to scrape the group for customers and clients and attempt to get them into your own private community or off Facebook and over to your opt-in page. Don’t direct sell on social media, it doesn’t work that well and doesn’t work for every business.   BEST MOMENTS “If you don’t know your niche yet, do some market research. This can be done by polling open Facebook groups and engaging with different audiences to find your ideal client but make sure you don’t sell to them.”   “If you’re directing your clients away from Facebook you’ll get less reach as Facebook wants the content to stay native. But after a while, you’ll build up extra reach through Facebook’s algorithms and more awareness and then you can make your sales offer.”   “For selling on social media it’s good to have a ‘lead magnet’ that entices them away from Facebook and into your database which is a more sales-driven eco-system. This could be a webinar or free content. This technique can also be done with a ‘product magnet’ for example a paid-for book, digital course or USB.”   “Social media is like a forest you need to know when to cash in on the fruits of the forest but if you do it too early you’ll end up cutting all of the trees down”     VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT! 'Why' "Lead by Example" is Bad Advice

Have you always thought that ‘good leaders’ are the first ones in the office and the last ones to leave? The hardest working in the team ‘leading by example?’ Well, tune in today to Rob’s Rants as he discusses why in today's era, ‘lead by example’ is really bad advice! Rob dives into how the leadership role has changed in recent years and most importantly how you too, can become a successful leader without the longest workdays KEY TAKEAWAYS When labour (hard manual work) was the main source of work than leading by example, was really good advice. However, the world has now changed, we are now in the knowledge era where leading by example is really bad advice.   Rethinking the modern leader. A modern leader will know their role in their team. You need specialists in each position. Each member of your team will have their own role, meaning as a leader it is not necessary to work the hardest, show up the earliest or stay the latest because you have your one role. The paradox of leadership. The people who have the least amount of money, the least amount of free time and the least staff, they do everything. An old leader would do all the work themselves because it was a work based ethic whereas a new leader would find the best specialists, strategists, managers, etc and would put in the organisation the best people for the job. A leader is a generalist. They are good at strategy, vision knows how to put a team together, etc but they are nowhere near as good as the specialists they put in their place. An old-style manager will want to have control over everything and to oversee it, which could only work in a small, low-profit business, if you want to have a large global and successful business then you have to let go to grow. A leader isn't finding other generalists, they are finding specialists. Rethink your definition of leadership. The best leaders in the world develop other leaders. Modern leaders need peripheral vision.   BEST MOMENTS “Great leaders find smart people, give them slightly too much to do, and then get out their way” “Work smart not hard” “Modern leaders need peripheral vision”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is the host of the UK’s no. 1 business podcast “The Disruptive Entrepreneur,” and “The Money Podcast” as well as an entrepreneur, property investor, property educator, and holder of 3 world records for public speaking.

Grant Cardone: Why You Should Micromanage & The Secret to Wealth

Want is the secret behind billionaire success? what are the traits or entrepreneurs, leaders and philanthropists? In today’s revealing episode Rob interviews International Speaker, Entrepreneur & Best Selling Author, Grant Cardone. Listen in to discover the trials and tribulations of Grant’s success, what it takes to overcome an addiction and how you too can shift your attitude away from fear and towards success.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  Why do we need billionaires? Yeah, we need people taking the risk. People need to take more risk, people need to put themselves out there. People need to hire people. There are too many small companies in too much small thinking going on. Billionaires do pay a lot more taxes to the government than people think. The problem that people need to complain about right now is not the billionaires, because what they're saying is there's income inequality, wealth inequality, but the reality is there's education inequality. The billionaires play by a different set of rules than everybody else. You need to learn how to win in the game, don't hate anybody, don't hate the game, don't hate the player, learn the game.  Can anyone become a billionaire? Yes, anyone can become a billionaire if you made, one; major decision. Number two; got the right vehicle, and three; didn't quit on it.   Why do you love micromanaging? Operate your business like it's an organism that needs its vitals checked. Be the one most interested and have an eye for things that other people for whatever reason don't say. So rather than getting furious about them not doing it or not seeing it are quitting, just turn it over to them. Trust no one to do their job, tell them to show you. How much did you spend, show me? I want to see it. Have that need to want to know every detail of the important things in your company. It’s either you micromanage now or wait until the things in cardiac arrest.   When you do these things, how do you want to be known? And then that might be linked to, why don't you just do one thing about real estate? I want to be known for helping people. Nobody's going to remember how much real estate, the plane I've flown or how much money I have, nobody. Nobody's ever remembered for that. Bill Gates won't be remembered for being the richest person in the world. He'll be remembered for he did something special.  As a drug addict, how did you shift from that and become so successful? When there's no male figure in a family, worldwide these numbers, drug addiction, incarceration, suicides, like grades, not completing schools, every major indicator for a kid, girl or boy, when there's no father present, they get destroyed. When I was 10, my dad died, 16 I got introduced to drugs. And I didn't plan on being a drug addict. I think I went for treatment when I was 25. Between the ages of 16 and 25, nine years, I tried to quit drugs for 10 times a day for nine years. That’s when I decided to quit drugs.  How do you manage your energy? How do you balance all these things that you do? Not everyone can manage their energy, not everybody takes responsibility for their energy. The thing to do is to take responsibility for the energy. I don't manage anything, I'm running controlling and I’m running the operation. Energy comes from doing what you love and being passionate about it. I would tell people to follow the money or be in a game that you are sure that you’re going to win. If the world will not reward you, if the world will not say, “Here, I want to exchange something I find valuable with something you do.” You might want to look at a different thing today because if it's valuable, people will pay you for it.  What is Scientology? Scientology is a practical, it is not what you see in the papers, the tabloids, CNN, or the quitter on the documentary, it's for honest people, they want to take a look at their life and know they have more potential and if you believe you have more potential, what they do there is they show you ways to get rid of things that might be blocking the individual. They showed me how I can remove barriers in my life, self-imposed barriers, self-imposed destructive thinking, ideas, weird reactions I had to situations, the inhibition to talk to people, the ability to have confidence in any room or an interview or to know how to communicate.   Why do you believe in Scientology? I've been interested in my whole life and who I am. Why am I either winning in life or having troubles in life? What does it take to make a marriage work? What does it take to make money work? What does it take to be happy? How can I find my purpose? Where's my energy? Scientology's helped me with all these things?  What's your attitude towards fear and risk? You got to take the risk. The best way to stay out of harm's way is to be the most dangerous person in the room.    BEST MOMENTS  “You'd rather have bad up than perfect not.”  “If you let everybody contribute to an idea, you would end up with nothing.”  “Intelligence is overrated, but speed gets rewarded.”  “You need to learn how to win in the game, don't hate anybody, don't hate the game, don't hate the player, learn the game.”  “It takes money to move things, you're not going to move the bar on anything on this planet today.”  “Accountability is underrated, the easiest person to lie to yourself.”  “It’s either time or money, decide which one you are running.”  “Procrastination is the curse of perfectionism.”  “Make sure frequency and speed are over quality. Quality comes as you go.”  “Staying small never works.”  “The great secret about Scientology is how many super, super successful business people use it because a successful businessman knows or businesswoman knows money's not everything.”  “The only people that think a million dollars a lot of money is the people that don't have it. The only people that think you can live on a million pounds are the people that don't have a million pounds.”  “Start investing money.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/   https://www.youtube.com/user/GrantCardone  Alexander McQueen documentary.  Bob Hope Documentary.  ABOUT THE GUEST  CEO of CardoneCapital, international speaker, entrepreneur and author of The 10X Rule & creator of 21 best-selling business programs, Grant Cardone owns & operates seven privately held companies and a $1.4B portfolio of multifamily properties.

Caffeine Cast: How to Think Like an Entrepreneur

Most books tell you to ‘go for it’, ‘dream big’, ‘follow your passion’, and so on… but the thing is, these might be too dangerous of an advice for those who are just setting foot in entrepreneurship. Aspiring entrepreneurs must know the realities and learn how to be critical about them. So, in this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob discusses how to really think like an entrepreneur without the flowery and delusive whatnots you need roaming around the Web. There are only 9 things one must take note, to start and develop his entrepreneurial career. Know more about them when you listen in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Wear the very opposite of the rose-tinted glasses. Optimism isn’t bad at all IF you could see what’s beneath the surface—the real problems and the severity of the situation.  See an opportunity in everything. When an entrepreneur’s bombarded with tricky situations, instead of acting up, he immediately gets his thinking hat on and draw out some solutions while having to monetize at the same time.  Create MORE value. An entrepreneur, even in the middle of recession, or any economical, political changes, will do everything to produce more for the consumers. When you create a product or service that people value, it’s only then that it becomes fulfilling.  Create value NOW. Entrepreneurs offer their expertise without thinking much of what they’ll get. They know that their will be risk, but they also know that people trust you more when they see real outcomes.  We solve, we serve, and we scale. You can start small, then grow it into an empire. Think big.  Create fair exchange. As an entrepreneur, you’ll be transparent with everything that you do. Always do the right thing. Make sure that the products are fairly priced no matter what.  Take calculated risks, progressive incremental risks. You can’t go all in whenever you see fit. Make sure you’re well-equipped first—educate yourself.  We are producers, value-creators. Are you producing or consuming? Producers are the changemakers, the trendsetters. You’re on a mission to create a positive effect on everyone’s lives.  Disrupt, innovate, repeat. It’s always a cycle in entrepreneurship. It’s difficult to control the external factors involved, so insteatting them control your progress, be the change that you want to see. Always bring new ideas on the table.  BEST MOMENTS  “You got to be able to spot the problems.”  “They are PRODUCERS for the consumers”  “Entrepreneurs seem to create more jobs, seem to pay more taxes.”    ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

How to Keep Reinventing Yourself & Career With Jay Alderton

Tune in to hear the inspiring journey and impressive rise of Bestselling Author, Podcaster, Personal Trainer & Body, Brain & Business Entrepreneur, Jay Alderton. Rob and Jay discuss what it takes to navigate the world of business, how to turn your passion into your profession and how to utilise online social platforms to gain a loyal following. They go on to dive into the psychology behind why people like, comment share and follow and how you too can spark an emotion, gain customers and grow your business.   KEY TAKEAWAYS   Jay became a personal trainer whilst in debt and put everything on his credit card to open a studio. Eventually, Jay partnered with fitness brand Grenade and grew his brand. Jay’s entrepreneurial focus is on body, brain and business and as a result, his business is separated into B2B and B2C ventures including weight loss programmes, accountability programmes and personal training both online and offline, as well as helping other personal trainers and fitness entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Jay teaches them how to grab attention online, how to scale and grow digital products in the fitness space and have fun doing it. “You’re either a boat-burner or a toe-dipper. Don’t just quit your job and follow your passion, invest some time in the evenings and weekends and see if it’s a scalable business model. Additionally, you can set a 3-year plan to equal your salary through your part-time ventures and then quit your job. But when you can scale your passion and it works financially growing your business doesn’t feel like working and learning is engaging. When you’re involved in something that you love it doesn’t feel like work.” Most entrepreneurs don’t need to speed up and generate more business, they need to slow down, prioritise and systemise. You need to change your mindset from exchanging your time for money and investing to get some time back. Three things can help you start a business and grow a following when you’ve got nothing. 1. Networking & Joint-Ventures 2. Social Media content marketing & personal branding 3. Providing a service. Asking for help is a strength and not a weakness, the people you hang around with will influence how to act and react and social media is a great tool to practice your emotions and expose yourself to trolls and critics because if your more yourself you will grow as a person, create relationships and turn the people that hate you into fans.   BEST MOMENTS “When you’re a personal trainer you’re everything. You’re a marketer, web-developer and everything in-between” “Unlike a physical business operating online means you’re open all hours” “When you’re passionate about the business you’re growing it doesn’t feel like working and learning is engaging. When you’re involved in something that you love it doesn’t feel like work” “I now read 3 or 4 books a month, I now just love learning and having a social media following allows me to share what I’ve learnt and simplify it for my audience.” “If you can’t explain it to six year old you haven’t learnt it yourself” “I wouldn’t be here today is I hadn’t been made redundant” “You’re either a boat-burner or a toe-dipper” “Thoughts are not your reality and reality are not your thoughts” “Word of mouth is the most powerful thing in business” “Top of mind is tip or tongue”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter Mindset With Muscle: Proven Strategies to Build Up Your Brain, Body, and Business, by Jamie Alderton Contagious Book ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: 8 Ways to ‘Game’ an Interview

Discover the 8 ways to game, prepare and prevail and nail an interview. If you want to land your dream job, succeed in interviews or just learn how to pitch better this episode is for you. Rob dives into the 8 simple ways to prepare for an interview and how you can game the system with simple tips and tricks to stand out from the crowd.     KEY TAKEAWAYS  How to prepare for an interview, portrait yourself incredibly well and get the job you dream of    All candidates will lie - People are prepared to lie to get a job so your strategic advantage to get a job is to simply not lie. Always tell the truth and be honest about your weaknesses and mistakes and this will resonate with the employer and give them a reason to believe that you will always be honest with them moving forward.   Be honest about your weaknesses - Don’t immediately re-package your weaknesses into strengths and try to spin them into a positive, we all have weaknesses and all have upsides and downsides. Your weaknesses shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for the role as long as it’s not a required strength for the position you’re applying for.  Be honest about the last roles that you left - Don’t ‘bitch’ about your previous employer and give off the impression that you’ll do the same at your next company/. Don’t simply blame your previous employer for your faults, be honest and take the opportunity to be truthful when other interviewees won’t.   Don’t over-talk or go off on a tangent - Answer the questions, wait and answer again. You don’t need to pitch yourself too much and go off on tangents and fill the silent gaps with ‘something’  If you don’t have an answer be honest - It’s okay not to know the answer to everything, be honest and say ‘you don’t know’ you’ll get back to help or you’ll look into it.   There are 3 main areas that you need to research - 1. The company you’re going to work for 2. The role that you will be fulfilling 3. The interviewer that will be interviewing you.   Ask prepare questions - When you get your chance to ask prepared and educated questions that make the interviewer think. Aim to reverse sell them “why should I come and work for you” “what will the position do for my career development” Give the interviewer the chance to sell themselves to you.   Prepare a final closing statement - Aim to have a solid closing statement that encapsulates you and what you can do for the end of the interview. This is where you will sell yourself, pitch what you can do and make your big claim”     BEST MOMENTS  “There’s a time an a place for selling yourself, however, if you sell yourself at the expense of the truth this will damage your future working relationship with the employer.”  “Don’t just package your weaknesses as strengths, for example, stating you’re a ‘perfectionist’”  “Sometimes it’s best to stay quiet and allow them to answer the questions. Don’t go off on a tangent give clear and concise answers to the specific questions”  “You will lose a big opportunity if you don’t research the interviewer”    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  MicroScript Rules - Book  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Mental Health Awareness & Black Friday Update

Important Black Friday Update Last year I said we weren’t going to do any black Friday offers, but I believe we’ve created something really special here. I feel this is something we have to do, especially as it is something that hits close to home... This year we’re donating 5% of all proceeds to the “Mind” charity AND we are matching that to double the donation to 10% (we hope to raise over £20k for the ‘Mind’ charity for mental health). Stop blaming others around you, stop feeling sorry for yourself and do something to change your life in a positive way... Here’s how it works: 1. (Only) on Black Friday, you can make me an offer (via private message not in the group) to our best property, business & personal development courses. We have a very special new bonus for each course, many brand new, but only for the first SIX successful bids per course.  2. I will accept or reject the offer (I reserve the right to not reply to silly office as sometimes we get 500 offers in a day) 3. Only courses (not masterminds or mentorships) can be offered on & only available for Black Friday (you’ll need to pay on the day) Many of these courses can be purchased at more than a 60% discount from the office price. I’ve had a lot but I won’t be accepting any offers until I officially open the Black Friday special offer VALUABLE RESOURCES BLACK FRIDAY LINK: bit.ly/disruptivefriday https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

RANT: Critics Do Have a Purpose (Own it Like a BOSS!)

Critics have a purpose in business and in life and if you can understand and embrace them it can really help your business and your growth. Listen to Rob’s surprising rant about the purpose, benefits, gifts and growth of having critics, trolls and haters. Discover the hidden lessons in criticism and how your critics are actually your biggest drivers of growth. KEY TAKEAWAYS The purpose, benefits, gifts and growth of having critics. Everything that you think is unfair you’ve probably done to someone else/ Everything that you don’t like is based on your own values and not theirs. It’s wise to remember that the traits that you dislike in others we have in ourselves. A lot of critics are just lashing out, they’re emotional and seeking attention as a result of something in their lives. A wonderful thing to do is to be kind to people when they’re being unkind. It’s important to remember that they are not unkind people they are just acting unkindly. If you understand your critics and realise that they are acting emotionally you can help to serve them and even help them and turn them into a customer. When you get criticised the only thing you’re really interested in is your own emotions and overcoming them. The greatest gift you can give to the critics is also the best gift for yourself. If you can ‘let go of it’ you will have a better mindset and mind space. In reality, you’re the one who’s suffering when you react to how a critic ha reacted to you. Growth is found on the border of support and challenge. When you have a critic that is a challenge but as a result, your fans will support you so you have an equilibrium. You need to have both otherwise you will get complacent, cocky and arrogant or be broken. You need to be careful where you invest your time. If you invest too much of your time addressing critics, trolls and haters your business may suffer so be wise with how you respond. Your critics give you the best lessons., your critics help you to search, grow and look internally when you’re balanced and help you ask yourself about growth. Critics are also great for your marketing algorithms, a critic will help you grow the best by engaging with your social posts and content posts. BEST MOMENTS “The more your business grows and the more money you make the more critics and trolls you will attract.” “The lowest form of marketing is to criticise others to elevate yourself” “Hurt, people, hurt people” “It’s ironic that the critics don’t like being criticised” “Forgiveness is about you letting go of all of the emotion and anger” “Kill them with kindness” “Critics are reaching out for attention, likes, respec, followers and fans. But the reality is you are too.” “When you block a critic you will just manifest another one. You need to overcome them” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Ben Askren: Mixed Marital Arts Champion to Entrepreneur

There is no other way to go, but up!   In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob Talks to Ben Askren, a pro MMA fighter and pro Olympic wrestler, about fighting, dealing with haters, and stepping up your game.   If you’re like Ben who cringes on the idea of mediocrity and repeating failures, then you’re at a good start. Discover how you can improve more at whatever chosen field you’re in as he shares his personal stories, career downturns (to stray away from), and some great book recommendations. They also talk about how you can manage the external factors that affect your career journey above all else, so tune in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  When Ben saw that everyone around him was better in what he does (i.e. wrestling), he stepped up his game. Knowing just the basic styles won’t even give him a podium finish, so he learned everything that he could possibly learn. He wanted to win every wrestling match and be at par with the pros.  Most likely, there’s someone out there who has been in the same (or similar) situation as you. It would be such a waste on your time if you try to solve things on your own. Observe and learn from other people’s experience (and mistakes). In this way, we avoid setbacks and grow exponentially.  There will always be a fear of failure—it’s part of being a human. So, how do we cope? Acknowledge that it will happen, plan better, and get thrilled of whatever the results are.   When asked about he deals with critics, bashers, and naysayers, Ben advises showing people some love. He also adds that during a child’s formative years, it’s best that parents and guardians give them the push they need. They should be told about how immense can their future be, how great can they be, when they put their knowledge and capabilities to good use.  BEST MOMENTS  “Just because something is done in a certain way, it doesn’t mean it’s the best way to do it.”  “Wrestling is getting so much better, so much faster.”  “The greatest reward comes with the greatest risk.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Antifragile-Things-That-Disorder-Incerto/dp/0812979680  Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter by Scott Adams | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Win-Bigly-Persuasion-World-Matter/dp/0735219710  Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America by Scott Adams | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Loserthink-Untrained-Brains-Ruining-America/dp/0593083520  Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work by Steven Kotler | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Stealing-Fire-Maverick-Scientists-Revolutionizing/dp/0062429655  The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance by Steven Kotler | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Rise-Superman-Decoding-Ultimate-Performance/dp/1477800832  The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups by Daniel Coyle | Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Culture-Code-Secrets-Highly-Successful/dp/0525492461   ABOUT THE GUEST  Ben Askren is a retired professional MMA and a former Olympic wrestler.

Caffeine Cast: 10 Contrarian, Disruptive Entrepreneur Qualities

In this episode Rob takes his several years of experience and knowledge of being a disruptive entrepreneur and explains the traits he’s also often recognised with people who are also disruptive entrepreneurs. These 10 traits are discussed by Rob and why he believes they are traits of these types of entreprenures. KEY TAKEAWAYS Most disruptive entrepreneurs are impatient and hate things being slow. This also includes not liking internal politics and hierarchy. But this can be good as it means you’re first to market. They’re prepared to be wrong in order to be right, often learning from their mistakes. Many consider these type of entrepreneurs to be ‘crazy’ which means they get a kick out of having unproven ideas. But these people make the impossible, possible. They’re prepared to not be liked and loathed in order to be admired and respected. If you want to disrupt then you’re going to have to have people dislike you on the way. They often cause chaos and disorder because they change and are impulsive. Entrepreneurs who are disruptive are also often visionaries so are able to tell the future before it’s happened because they can create their future. They’re prepared to fail often and fast because they tend to have a testing mentality where they get their product out as soon as possible without having it made perfect first. This could mean that there are often less worried about risk. It’s common that disruptive entrepreneurs are delusional because they often believe that they can do things that everyone else deems as impossible. They expect and believe that they can draw more out of people than others can. So they deem a lot more things to be possible than a lot of others, often leading them to believe that they can do more than what they can’t do.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Every upside has a downside’. ‘Speed often wins’. ‘Always be live testing your products’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Robs Rant: If You Criticise Others Don't Whine When You Get Haters

There are a lot of people out there that criticise other people, brands and businesses to elevate or grow their own brand or business. Rob explains in this episode the importance of not lashing out and not using criticism to grow your brand and business. Instead he discusses how you can use criticism in a positive way and why it’s important to know how to criticise. KEY TAKEAWAYS If you spend time and energy criticising others then you can expect to receive that back. The marketing you put out will reflect back on you. E.g. If you lash out at others, others will lash out at you’. If you focus on your own brand, mission and message then you’re going to attract people who have that similar mindset as you. It’s not an attractive quality to bitch and criticise other people even if it’s therapeutic. So think about who you want to be and how you want to be known. If you do want or need to criticise then do it in a fair, balanced, accurate, non-emotional and constructive way. Try have 30 days not criticising others.

Joe De Sena: Spartan Race CEO, Built The Biggest Brand in Obstacle Racing

Are the things we do really that hard? What would you do if you knew you were going to fail anyway? These are just some of the questions today’s interviewee, the multi-millionaire founder of Spartan & Death Race,  Joe DeSena asked himself when growing the worlds leading obstacle race. Today it’s easier than ever before to start, grow and scale a business if you know what you’re doing and you’re passionate about you will succeed you just need to find your ‘True North”. Discover the success behind Spartan Race, what it takes to merge your passion and profession and the business lessons learnt along the way.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  Spartan is in 45 countries running over 275 events with 1.3million people taking part each year and over 6.5million completing a race since we started. The business makes revenue from merchandise, revenue, sponsorship and nutrition. However, the big hole in our business is training, a Spartan gym or physical training course so we’re looking to work with partners to launch this.  “We invented hard when it comes to modern-day events sp we went back to basics and threw the hammer down and really showed people what hard is but the race is more than just a race, it’s hard but everyone that completed it transformed their lives. In life, you only meet yourself when your backs against the wall and in a strenuous situation you find out what you’re made of.”  Most people are waiting for their purpose to find them but you need to be active and moving in order to find your purpose and make it your profession. If you’re moving and get things done you will bump into things and opportunities will happen and you’ll discover that changing people’s lives and help people out is much more valuable than money.   True North is finding that thing that’s going to pull you through life and this can change. In the beginning, your True North could be money but for myself and Spartan now my True North is changing people’s lives and now I’m actually trying to measure my business’s success by how many lives we change.  As long as you’re putting yourself in the right location over and over again you’ll make your own luck and to the untrained eye, it looks like you’re just lucky. However, with Spartan I wasn’t actually looking for a new business I just wanted to put on a race but I ran it into debt and I realised that the entrepreneurs that succeed are the ones that have no choice, their backs against the wall and they need to make a change.  If you’re looking to start a business don’t get distracted, If you’re going to do something do it, don’t only offer your new venture 10% of your time because if you do that you deserve to lose money. Additionally, you need to gain the right knowledge and you need to know how to hustle in order to be creative.   Business Lessons  Always be on time.  Make yourself invaluable as a service provider and go above and beyond.  Never have your hand out asking for money, if you do a good job the money will find you.  Make your customers your best friends.  Be authentic and be passionate about your business.  Have a great name.      BEST MOMENTS  “We all have it so easy in today’s society”  “How is the kid supposed to survive outside the house if you don’t let him out of the house”  “We’re all animals”  “The brain and the body is wired to thrive when you do hard things”  “The brain and the body is wired to thrive when you do hard things”  “I had to test myself and find out if I could build a business, walk a thousand miles or make it on wall-street and what I found was I wasn’t the toughest or fastest but I didn’t quit”  “Everyone wants to quit a little less and get a little more done”  “If you want to turn iron into steel you’ve got to heat it, pound it and drown it”  “I love being under the gun, it’s amazing how resourceful humans can be”  “I think what would an ordinary person do and I don’t want to be ordinary”    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  Joe DeSena - Author  Spartan Up! - Book  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

De Sena knows what it feels like to succeed outside the office, too - and that's the feeling he seeks to bring to the world's athletes with the Spartan Race series.

Caffeine Cast: How to Structure Your Week (Like a Boss)

Something that the majority of people experience is having a job and it’s imposed upon you when you finish when you can do things and when you can’t do things. Many people share the same dream of being their own boss and not having anyone tell them what they have to do. But when it comes to actually 'starting' their own business they tend to find them stuck in a day, which leads to missing the structure of having a full time job. In this episode Rob explains how you can overcome this.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  Something that the majority of people experience is having a job and it’s imposed upon you when you finish, when you can do things and when you can’t do things. Many people share the same dream of being their own boss and not having anyone tell them what they have to do.  Having a clear, structures and compartmental diary will help you overcome the common question of “how do you manage to get so much done?”.  Everyone’s individual so to believe that the theory of having less sleep to get more done isn’t correct. It’s about finding what works for you best. Test out different times to find what times you’re most productive and alter your diary to suit that.  Robs book Routine = Results walks you through how you can do this and also helps you get the basics right, such as exercising, eating right and getting enough sleep, before anything else.  Put your income generating and high earning tasks in the time zones where you’ve got the most energy so you can be the most productive and get the highest quality work done.  Don’t stop focusing on your key life areas such as date nights with your partner, seeing your kids or doing a hobby. Just book in that time to do these things in your diary because it’s important not to get obsessed with your business.    BEST MOMENTS  ‘Being a new entrepreneur can be a massive shock of culture change’.    ‘Structure equals freedom’    ‘Don’t get too obsessed with your business’    ‘Create your own structure to suit you’.    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Rant: Is Anything Really Fair?

So many people say this isn't fair, that's not fair, it's not fair but fairness is based on merit. Do something about it. In this episode, Rob explains how whining, complaining and bitching about how things aren't fair can have a negative impact on your life and how you can overcome things that you may not feel is fair. KEY TAKEAWAYS  If you complain, bitch and whine about things not being fair then you're not being productive.  People mostly do what they want to do not what you want them to do. So if you try to get someone to do what you want them to do, they'll do what they think is the right thing for them and you'll lose control of fixing your own stuff and getting you own stuff sorted. Fairness is based on merit, it's about what you do for yourself that can make you feel like you're doing something with your life.

When Fitness & Business Collide: An Experimental Episode

Bodybuilding Coach, Entrepreneur, Mentor & Best Selling Author, Phil Graham Do you want to be inspired to achieve your goals and dreams, overcome adversity and build a successful business turning your passion into your profession? In today’s episode Rob interviews, bodybuilding coach, entrepreneur, mentor and best selling author of diabetic muscle and fitness guide, Phil Graham. Rob and Phil discuss what it takes to be successful in business and in life, how to overcome objections and build communities that help and serve the public. Tune in and listen to Phil share his life story, things he could control, lifestyle, nutrition, fitness and what it took for him to build a successful business and allow him to live longer.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Wealth and business side of personal training - Its a really dense market, more people overweight therefore a large demand for the service. People who go to the gym and fall in love with it often decide they want to create a business for it. The big difference between passion and creating a business. Many people are good at the technical aspects but not on the business side of things. So many personal trainers become overwhelmed with the business aspect as they don’t have a vision for the future and focus on week to week and exchanging time for money. Phil was then inspired to write a book called the diabetic muscle fitness guide which is the world’s best selling book on diabetes and muscle building. Created a large society of people with diabetes who wanted to train and build muscle. Many young entrepreneurs think of the financial goals when it comes to business but take not consideration into their own long term vision. Master areas by learning. Phil had a plan and was methodical in his thinking and he learned that to become accountable, sometimes the action has to be a little bit blind. Many entrepreneurs become scared to let their businesses go for fear of it messing up, someone once said to him, “you cannot lead an inspiring life if you do not delegate” many people fail as they feel that their losing money by delegating or that it won’t be done to their standards. The importance of having strong relationships outside of work, He and his wife are supporting each other by having a ‘huddle’ each morning to discuss outcomes for the day and expectations from each other in terms of their needs, and end the day with finding out their learnings from the day. A powerful quote that stood out “your thoughts are not reality, the reality is not your thoughts” in triggering moments, it is easy to ignore and perhaps look at social media as escapism. When he finds himself in triggering moments, the first thing he does is to say an affirmation to himself and ask what is this teaching you? What can you control and what can you not control? Have good internal frameworks and questioning to get yourself out of the emotional state, when you’re really emotional the intelligence is low.   BEST MOMENTS “I’m a big believer in asking himself questions at the end of the day, how did the day go, what did you learn?” “Successful people I’ve met, they take action and they ask for help.” “I needed a kick in the ass to get into shape” “With new-found knowledge I was able to build a great physique and found a love for bodybuilding, won many shows whilst competing and found happiness”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter https://www.phil-graham.com/ https://www.amazon.com/Diabetic-Muscle-Fitness-Guide/dp/0995762201 ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: The Most Powerful Way to Build Cashflow

Building online communities is one of the most effective things now days to help build a successful business. People like to be in groups and clubs who share the same interests. In this episode Rob explains the importance of staying of new opportunities with the ever evolving technology. He also covers why building communities is a great way of selling.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  You could have all of your target market, audience and potential JV partners in one community that you’re the leader of.  Often when you’re selling it’s one to one however if your build a community you can sell to a large group of people who are already interested in what you’re selling.   Having a community can also mean that there’s less pressure on you as the owner to provide all of the content, do all of the admin, do the prospecting and lead generation because other people can do this.  Getting likeminded people together is very special because it’s so powerful. It can be a movement and revolution provided you have a clear set of guidelines and rules that everyone must follow.  You serve to sell rather than sell to sell when you have a community which Rob prefers as there’s less friction when selling.  Email marketing has got a lot less popular, and with all of the new GDPR rules, a lot harder. So if you have a community then you’ve got something that is a lot warmer where you can communicate to people.  The ever evolving technology and platforms means that you have a new fresh opportunity to be the first of something. You can use multiple platforms to create your community too.    BEST MOMENTS  ‘The a Facebook group for everything’  ‘Many are greater than the one’.  ‘Marketing has changed’  ‘It’s important to dance with the times.’    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Rant: A 'NO BS' View on Criticism

Instead of hating the critics, the trolls, the haters and the naysayers, love them!  Yes, they can get into your nerves and trigger you to lash out—which can lead to the destruction of your reputation—but you should start appreciating their existence more. If you can get way past through the emotional downpour its causing, such criticisms can be really good for you. They can be great key points to look (or not look at) if you want improvement in yourself and in your business. Rob discusses more about the good and the bad of criticism for entrepreneurs, in the most NO BS way, in this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, so tune in!  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Learn how to manage criticisms that you receive. If you’re too hostile with everything that’s being thrown at you, then you leave no room for improvement.   People have different approaches on how they tackle an idea presented to them. Some are just sceptical, some just know that there’s more that you can offer, and some just want to see your bad side first before even trusting you. How you take these feedback and reactions is what will mark with them. Don’t get triggered. Don’t lash out. Don’t react primarily with your emotions.  BEST MOMENTS  “Criticism helps you grow; criticism helps you be introspective and check on your values.”  “A troll is someone with a fake profile.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Marc Randolph: CEO of Netflix, Co-Founder & Serial Entrepreneur

There’s no such thing as a good idea. It’s in the process of discovering why it’s a bad idea that you realise what might work and you begin to experiment. In today’s episode of the Disruptive Entrepreneur Rob interviews serial tech entrepreneur, advisor, speaker, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix, Marc Randolph. In this insightful interview, Marc shares the untold story of Netflix, the mindset needed to cultivate ideas into companies and how you too can take action and start your own entrepreneurial journey.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  How was the idea for Netflix born? - In 1997 when I was my company was acquired I was left with about 6 months to invest myself into starting a new company and Reed Hastings was the angel investor and we began brainstorming ideas. We had hundreds of ideas and finally landed a DVD by mail business. Usually, a good idea is indistinguishable from a good idea until you do the research.   We had to come up with a new model to attract and acquire customers. No due date and no late fees had never really been done before. But we were terrified that Blockbuster would move online, if they had, they would have crushed us. They were a 6 billion dollar business, now a lot of success is down to the skill of the entrepreneur, but it’s also down to the lucky breaks and Netflix certainly had a lot of lucky breaks.   ‘That will never work’ book by Marc Randolph -  was originally supposed to be called ‘nobody knows anything’ inspired by a quote about Hollywood and that face none knows the success of something before it’s launched and this is very much true about start-ups and for Netflix. The title ‘That will never work’ is born from the idea that often people with ideas do not pursue them because of the opinions of others but in reality, none knows, you will only know if you try it and find out for yourself. The book is really the untold story of Netflix and what it takes to start a company.     Two steps to starting a successful company   You need to have a propensity to take action - A lot of people with great ideas overcomplicate them in their head before starting and make it so complicated they cannot start. As an entrepreneur It’s not about how clever you are, it’s about creatively you can start as quickly and cheaply as possible.   Focus and triage - It’s so powerful to put all of your efforts into a singular thing rather than trying to accomplish lots. However, at the same time, you need to have the intuition to know where to focus as it’s rarely the thing that screams the loudest. In the early stages of a company other two things matter, money and customers. A lot of entrepreneurs focus on the peripheral things that just do not matter in the beginning.   How important is speed to growing a company - Speed doesn’t matter if you’re product or service isn’t right. Netflix was domestic for a very long time because we wanted to get our business model right and we saw a lot of competitors try to launch too quickly. However, learning quickly is very important. Do not waste time polishing things but be efficient and make sure you get it right. Being the first to market doesn’t count for anything if you have poor execution, it’s important to test and with today’s technology you can test your ideas much easier.  How can you help people action their ideas - You need to train yourself to look for pain. Aim to seem the world as an imperfect place and all of a sudden you will have ideas flood to you. Ask yourself what’s frustrating, what would happen if? How could I try that? And to try it, but not in a scalable way just try it by testing the market. The ONLY way of figuring out if you have a good idea is to try it. You will only know when your idea collides with a consumer.   What does Disruptive mean to you? - is a different way of doing things, it’s a dramatic departure from the norm. In the Netflix case, there was an established way of watching video in your home. We believe there was a better way of doing this. Many models in all businesses are being disrupted and you need to ensure you also disrupt yourself.     BEST MOMENTS  “A great idea is like finding the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle”  “There’s no such thing as a good idea. It’s in the process of discovering why it’s a bad idea that you realise what might work and you begin to experiment”  “There were a thousand different zigzags in the Netflix story”  “When we thought of movie rental by mail we didn’t immediately write a business plan, we tested it first”  “Netflix was not a pre-ordained success. In the beginning, it was a scrappy start-up. There were dozens of times we almost went out of business”  “When companies are more established and mature they have more to lose and as a result, they play it safe, they often opt against new technologies and emerging markets.”  “I almost never put my own money into a start-up because I’m putting my time in and that’s way more valuable”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  bit.ly/Robsupporter  That will never work - Marc Randolph  https://www.marcrandolph.com/about/  https://twitter.com/mbrandolph?lang=en  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: Best Ways to Retain Great Talent (& Stop People Screwing You Over)

People often perceive people screwing them over in the wrong way especially when people become competitors. If you hold people back from becoming your competitor then you’re never going to be able to train other people to run your business so you can scale up. In this episode Rob explains 7 things you can do to retain people and reduce the number of people who will screw you over. KEY TAKEAWAYS Understand the values of your team and give them things that will motivate them using your knowledge of their values. E.g. allowing them to leave early to pick up their kids. Find this out by simply asking them what is most important to them in their life. Meet their individual employment/partnership needs, everyone’s will be different. E.g. some people want to learn as they earn. Find out what each member of your teams is and help them to get that. Have a strong vision so people stay motivated and everyone has an end goal. It also gives people a reason to do what they’re doing, giving them a why. This can help to make your team feel like they are all well connected. PROGRESSION, RECOGNITION and AUTOMANY. What’s the next step for your team members? Give them the recognition publically and privately for their achievements. No one wants to be micromanaged so let them do what they need to do in their own way. Find great people, give them slightly too much to do then get out of their way to go do it. Have a good contract so all bases are covered and there is no lack of clarity. Train your team to the best as you can and if they do choose to leave and become competition, don’t stay angry at them even though it can be very annoying. Don’t burn your bridges with them as you could then have the credibility that you trained them. Help your team enjoy what they do. If people enjoy being around you, being part of your team and coming into work then they’re going to stay for longer. They do say that when the fun stops, stop. So don’t stop the fun.   BEST MOMENTS ‘You have to let go to grow’ ‘If you don’t train your staff to be the best, your business will never be the best.’ ‘Recognition goes a long way.’ ‘Why have a dog and bark yourself?’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

How to Overcome Being Too Comfortable or Lazy

Let’s be honest everyone needs to overcome some laziness in life and get uncomfortable to be successful. But how do you do it?

If you struggle with motivation and find it hard to get out of your comfort zone and get things done, this episode is for you.

Look for peer groups and masterminds to give you accountability and to help you to achieve your goals. Find communities and seek advice and then you will get out of your comfort zone and move towards your goals and dreams. It’s not bad enough yet? - Sometimes you’re stuck in a limbo where you’re a situation that’s comfortable and enables you to be lazy. But here’s the thing humans are resourceful and incredible when their backs up against the wall and they need to produce results. Attempt to get that edge back, the edge that pushes you forward and helps you do amazing things. But don’t expect things to turn around right away change your mindset and see the compounding effects. If you don’t risk anything you risk everything - The enemy of success is risk and the enemy of greatness is comfort and laziness. You need to begin to take some risks and put yourself out there. Make yourself vulnerable and don’t be scared to become the student again. Create some fear - You cannot sit and wait and get comfortable waiting for tomorrow. You need to create some fear and accountability that scares you and forces you to take action. Give yourself an ultimatum and change your mindset. Try new stuff - Test and make mistakes, learn from what you do and become more experimental. Aim to test, review, tweak, repeat and scale. If you don’t see what’s out there you might not discover what’s out there and what you’re passionate about. Don’t get too uncomfortable - Aim to be progressively uncomfortable not aggressively uncomfortable.

Try putting yourself in incremental steps of un-comfort to ease yourself out of your comfort zone and into new skills and expertise. Outsource - Aim to have a VA or a PA and outsource some work. Leverage the skills of others to get more done in less. Look for joint-ventures and partnerships to grow your business using the best people in the right places. You don’t always have to do everything yourself. Be honest with what you’re scared of - We’re all scared of something and that’s a big reason why we’re lazy, Whether it’s shame, ego, failure or other peoples judgement you need to overcome them, embrace them and realise that these emotions are simply human. Ask for help - Sometimes it’s as simple as asking someone to help. When you’re lazy and comfortable sometimes you just need a helping hand to get out of your situation and to push you onto a path towards your goals and dreams. Find the right routine - Create a new routine that is disciplined and makes you accountable. You need to isolate yourself from distractions, turn off social media and stick to a routine that helps you get 5-10 times more done in the same amount of time. Focus on the tasks you’re passionate about, your income generating tasks and look to outsource where you can.   BEST MOMENTS “Who is the easiest person to lie to?” “Free advice is worth every penny” “We’re designed to survive” “Every master was once a disaster” “Every winner was once a beginner” “Build layers of comfort and strength”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ly/Robsupporter ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

People often forget what they have done but it should be remembered and used in your marketing, to build your brand and to increase your credibility.

Put more goodwill into the world - Share what you learn and what you do, you don’t have to be producing too much content, you can simply share with your audience what you do, how you do it and the results of your actions.

Rant: When People Say "You've Changed!"

Strive to Change; Don’t Let Them Say Otherwise! When someone utters to you, “You’ve changed…” Would that make you feel good? Or bad? It should make you feel good. The only change we want is for the better. We should avoid staying put or going backwards. Nothing’s wrong with chasing greatness, success, and happiness. And, it’s CHANGE that will get you there. If you’ve changed and improved or even thinking of starting to, then good for you! Start tuning in to hear Rob discuss more on how positive any change can be in this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast. KEY TAKEAWAYS Remember where you came from. Yes. But this doesn’t mean you should be stuck where you were 5, 10, or any years ago. Changing and expanding your environment is good. Don’t even let others dictate where you should be. When people see something as a ‘truth’, they’ll go the extra mile to convince you or even force you with it. it will always be based on the perception of who they want you to be! If you got no problem with your goals, your vision, your principles, and everything else that makes up who you are and who you’ll be, then you’re good to go!

Scaling Up, Staffing Up & How to Avoid Getting Screwed Over

Whether your an entrepreneur or employee building your business you need to understand the value of a good workplace culture, how to disrupt internally and how to become a leader. Today, Rob gets interviewed by the host of the Lead with Levity podcast for progressive business leaders on the forefront of employee experience and workplace culture, Dr Heather Walker. Together they discuss the concept of levity with a business, bean bag culture vs corporate culture and why humanising the workplace and staying humble are essential to success and the growth of your business.    KEY TAKEAWAYS  Manager Vs Leader  There is a huge difference between a manager and a leader. When you’re starting out your vision is everything and you don’t have to compromise, however when you begin to take on staff and create a culture your vision needs to involve them and include their careers and growth. This is essential to motivating staff and creating a positive workplace culture.     Leadership is inspiring those to follow you and join you on a journey.  Management is policies, onboarding, training documents, targets, sickness policies etc.    Three components of levity:  Amusement - Fun & enjoyment  Bouncy - A positive atmosphere  Edification - A constructive environment to work    How Is The Culture In Your Business?  We never wanted a corporate structure at Progressive, we wanted to be very flat with our layers of management, never have an organisational chart and push a bean bag culture. However, as you grow and you get bigger you do need a more corporate structure. Ultimately your businesses culture depends on the size of your business. What we did find out was once we put in one layer of management everything changed. We had to become more official.    We had a really great culture when we had around 7 or 8 people. We had a family culture, a chaotic approach and an open door policy. This can be met with friction from staff but ultimately you need systems and processes in order to grow and become a real business.    How Do You Keep Levity In Your Business As You Grow?  The key is having a core set of values that you live and breathe. You can still be a personal company as you grow and you become a bigger company. We created our values with our staff and together refined our culture and values and make sure that we look after our staff.    As an entrepreneur, you think that people work for you, but in reality no one works for you, ever. They work for themselves and you just happen to be paying them. They come to work to pay for their expenses and to facilitate their lifestyle. As an entreprneur, you need to realise that you work for your employees and when you do this you will create a good workplace culture.     If levity could change one thing in the world what would it be?  When people start their businesses they take themselves far too seriously. I believe you should take your work very seriously but yourself not too seriously. Love your art, love your mission, do the best you can but be a light individual and manage your emotions, simply try to have fun and be humble.  BEST MOMENTS  “The power of many of greater than the power of one”  “Success is better when it’s shared with someone else and failure is easier when you’re surrounded by people”  “Most of the success in my business has been through collaborations. I believe in growth through community and collaborations”  “I work for my team, they don’t work for me”  “I crowdsource ideas from meeting, my staff, surveys, communities and from simply knowing and talking with my staff”  “I want my team to come to work and enjoy being there, If someone enjoys being there they’ll be productive”  “All you need is a bit of humility and to listen to your staff and you will create a good workplace culture”  “As a leader, you need to humanise your business”  “Mark and I are terrible managers”    VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://robmoore.com/  www.leadwithlevity.com  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: 10 Quick Ways to Take Action NOW

Learn – Test – Tweak – Review – Repeat This is Rob Moore’s 5-step model on how he gets things done. Easy to recite… but is it easy to follow? In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, he gives an in-depth explanation of how this works for entrepreneurs like him. It isn’t linear; it’s strategic and cyclical, in a good way. There will always be difficulties in every situation, and this model recognises this. It teaches you to be adaptable, resourceful, and calculated as you go along your journey. And, to make things easier (for you to take mental notes and apply them ASAP!), Rob made it more concise—discover today the 10 actionable ways on how to get things done. You can now listen to this, today. KEY TAKEAWAYS Everything’s a test. And it’s not wise to test something without even learning it beforehand. Stop labelling what you’re doing with hefty words (i.e. life-changing), you’re less likely to do it. Don’t put TOO MUCH pressure on yourself. Get a mentor or be in a mastermind. Learning it on your own or as you go through your own process is not the best way to go. Why don’t you approach someone who has gone through the same path? At least, he’ll tell you what to do and not do. Be accountable. Stick with your deadlines so you can easily achieve your goal. Stop letting yourself and other people down. Embrace your fears. You can’t ignore or run from them. Fear is a good thing as it keeps you grounded along your pursuit. Always keep going despite its existence. Accept and collect rejection. Rejections are good motivators as they give us the most valuable lesson that we need to plan our next step. Put yourself out there. Build your online profile, attend events that could give you a chance to a network, and share your expertise. Compartmentalise and isolate. It’s easier to finish your tasks if you allow a certain time in your schedule and a certain place to do it with no delays and interruptions. Manage your energy well. Your high energy can help you excel in the important tasks, so learn how and where you want to use that energy. Reward yourself. BEST MOMENTS “To know what to do and not do is to not know.” “All learning and not doing is not ideal.” “Managing your energy is managing your life.” ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

RANT: Dealing With Other People's Moods (Sh*t)

No one makes you do, say or feel anything. You own of all of that and you are responsible for these things. In this episode, rob covers 9 useful tips on how you can deal with people who may be negative or are draining on your life.   KEY TAKEAWAYS You cant control how or where someone delivers feedback so accept the way they’ve done it and learn from it. Peoples ability to take feedback even when it’s not delivered very well is emotional, business and life mastery. Maybe you’re a bit too optimistic and positive and need your feet kept on the ground. Recognise that sometimes other people being like this can balance you and keep you grounded. Even if someone’s in a bad mood, they can’t affect how you feel unless you give them permission to. Their suck of energy is less than your give of energy. Don’t let anyone put your fire out. Sometimes when someone’s a real drain with huge emotional baggage and constantly plays the victim them get rid of them out of your life or minimize your time with them. But be aware that there’s a difference between someone being negative and a critic. Annoy the critics and sceptics with your enthusiasm and positivity. You can let so much stuff go, you cant control anyone so let it go. It can be a real challenge of your own mindset to deal positively with negative energy. So it’s good to see it as abit of a test of your ability to keep your energy high. Don’t get sucked into all of these debates and things that will drain your energy. Sometimes when people are down and are a bit of a drain of life then, if you care enough about them enough, you can try to help them. Some people have a lot of bad things going on in their lives so it could be them trying to reach out to you.   BEST MOMENTS “Always look for the lesson in how people deliver feedback”   “Take away the way someone delivers their feedback.”   “Their mood can’t affect your mood without your permission.”   “The person with the best energy wins”   “Thank them then fu*k off”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Piers Linney: Dragons Den Star & Disruptive Entrepreneur

Disruptive entrepreneur Rob Moore interviews, Secret Millionaire and Dragons Den investor, experience lawyer, investment banker and fund management manger, Piers Linney to discuss what entrepreneurs are, how they operate and how to raise money if you are just starting up. Get expert advice on how to pitch, how to grow a small business, what marketing works in today's market and much, much more.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Small business owner and entrepreneur is not the same thing. If you've got a corner shop, or you're a freelancer, or you got a small business and it makes 20, 30, 40 grand a year and the chance of going outside of that are pretty slim, you don't want to hire anybody else, you want it to be your thing, you are not an entrepreneur, entrepreneur is about taking risks in the hope of profit. Somebody that may have an existing business and they look to grow that business.  Entrepreneurship is also a mindset as well as a definition. Like having ideas, being creative, being maybe a little bit relentless, you push for more having multiple businesses, you sit on more than one board and you put your finger in a few businesses. There's a spirit of entrepreneurship.  Who is the right person to become an entrepreneur? You don’t have to be born a leader or an entrepreneur, you can learn these skills, you can put the people around you to make sure that you fill all those sorts of skills gap so you can become a more rounded entrepreneur.  How to get funding during a start-up. You can get money from borrowing your friends and family members. You can also get the money by getting loans from financial institutions like banks. You can also pitch your ideas to entrepreneurs and see if you can partner with them and raise the money together.  Pitching. To people you don’t know, you have to bring out your A-Game when pitching to them so that they can be carried away by the pitch and agree to fund your project. Ask yourself these questions, why would someone want to invest in your project? Why would someone buy your product?   What are the key elements of a really good pitch? The important thing about a really good pitch is to understand where you are and who you're pitching to. Do thorough research on what you want to pitch, do your homework well. You must be a good communicator.   Knowledge and skills. The business that you are entering into or starting, do you have the right skills to do it and be successful, have you invested your time and money in trying to learn what this business entails? You need to be educated with the right skills for you to succeed in that business.  Marketing. If you ever want your business to grow a lot more, you have to market your business or product through advertisements. You can hire someone with these kinds of skills to market your product and be sure that this will increase your sales very much.   When you leverage social media, you can reach more customers quicker than ever. People moan about social media, but you can reach millions of people and you don't even have to pay. Facebook is free. LinkedIn is free. Of course, it depends on your product or service. You can't be a personal brand if you haven't got a product or service or a brand or a story that young people have a story to tell. That's where you sell more.  What is scale up? Scale-up is any business that has the ambition to grow. So that means that if you're making two million this year, next year you want to be making seven million, next year 15 million and so on.   Can you work hard and smart and have a balanced life that you still have time for your family? Yes, you can. As long as your mental health and physical health are balanced, in that you're going to gym, you're generating ideas in your head and implementing them in your business and making money, you can put aside some amount of money and go out on a vacation with your family and have some fun.  Mentorship. As an entrepreneur, you need to have at least one mentor or more because there’s always a time where you are in need of a good professional advice or a hurting truth that maybe you don’t want to here or other people are afraid to tell you that might help you in shaping up your business or implement an idea that you have. Mentors help you to make very informed decisions on what you are about to do.  If people refuse to fund you, should you give up? No, send the pitch out, have negative feedback or no feedback and keep sending out the same thing. Go look at it and see if they missed a point and if you can clarify that it and change your presentation and iterative constantly.  What is a successful business? This is when your employees are happy, your teams happy, and the customers are happy because, with this, you're more likely to be successful.  BEST MOMENTS  "No company starts up to be a start-up, you start to create a sustainable financial model, a product or service that solves a problem, people are willing to pay a price for and you can deliver that product or service at a lower cost, which means you got profit."  “If you know anything worth doing, is worth doing, it doesn't matter how long it's going to take."  “Put yourself out there a lot in the social media platforms if you want to grow. You’ll be rewarded for volume over quality.”  “We live and learn.”  “Society is not fair until the top of it looks like the bottom of it.”  “The problem we've all got is, if you're riding the wave, you'll go with it. If you're not, you get left behind.”  “Business should be a force for good.”  “The world's biggest problems are the world's biggest opportunities for entrepreneurs, you solve those problems, and you’re a billionaire.”  “A lot of people raise quite a lot of money for nonsense, the best thing that they could be good at is the pitching itself.”  “Don’t raise money unless you have to.”  “If you change the number of scale-ups in the country by just 1%, it generates millions of jobs, generates billions in GDP. It changes our economy massively. So scale-ups are the ones that need to be supported probably the most.”  “Do something that you enjoy doing.”  “Disruptive means staying one step ahead of yourself, and one step ahead of your industry or your market or your model.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://www.pierslinney.com/startup-course   ABOUT THE GUEST  Piers Linney was born in Stoke-on-Trent but grew up in a former mill town in Lancashire where he attended the local comprehensive school.

BONUS: Dealing With Depression & Feeling Alone in Business, on World Mental Health Day

In this world mental health day special, Rob covers the 7 tops tips for improving your mental health and how to deal with your struggles and trials of modern life. Rob reminds us that often, there are people that have it worse and we should have gratitude for what we have, but also to not be too hard on ourselves and appreciate the successes we have had in business and personal life, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem. KEY TAKEAWAYS •It is okay to ask for help •Everyone struggles, despite how they appear to the world. They could be smiling but are actually crying inside. Your idols are as nervous about doing well day to day as you are. Successful people have experienced the struggle to get where they are today. •You should celebrate even the smallest of goals, not just the big wins •The personality you put out to the world is the kind of person you will attract back. If you are putting out a fake you, you will attract people who aren't being true to themselves either. •Trolls & haters' comments reflect more about them than they do about you.  •We're all human- forgive yourself for feeling down or making mistakes. BEST MOMENTS “Arnold Schwarzenegger is just a normal guy, and I’m standing there looking at him like he’s my all-time hero. Me and him are exactly the same.” “If I’m pedestalising someone, I should equally balance that with the things I’ve done well” “You've probably achieved more than you think if you go back and look at all the things you’ve done in your life”. “A lot of people have an unrealistic expectation of how well they should be doing” “Every human being that’s alive has a purpose for humanity- a greater purpose understood by a bigger intelligence than ourselves otherwise we wouldn’t exist” “It’s not a weakness to ask for help” “The definition of wealth is wellbeing” “People react negatively toward you- not at you but at the shit going on in their life” “All those swans that are elegant above the water are screaming and kicking like everyone else under the water” “The darkness does become the light, unfortunately, the light sometimes becomes the darkness”.

Little Known Truths About The Entrepreneurs Mindset

Like the dark side of the Force, the negative energy brought by some factors can sway an entrepreneur’s mindset. There are the bashers, the mistakes, the failures, the fears, the limitations, and other things. In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob talks to Ryan Pinnick, the Founder & CEO of SuperGenius Ltd. Rob and Ryan discuss the importance of having a stable and undefeatable mindset. An entrepreneur can be at an advantage and most probably be more successful if he knows his way to managing his own emotions and behaviour. Every move, every reaction, can affect the next plans. Yes, this can be likened to a domino effect. So, as much as possible, know how you can harness an extreme energy for the better where you can benefit yourself and the surrounding people. Ryan shares some techniques on how you can train your mind into doing it today, so don’t miss this insightful conversation. KEY TAKEAWAYS In Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, he shared that the ultimate reason people fail is because of their inability to transform negative energy (sadness, shame, frustration, anger, etc.)into something valuable. Learn to master your positive and negative tensions, so you can be mindful of your behaviour, your reactions, your language, etc. when you encounter something on the extremes. Focus on the more important things (i.e. your purpose) rather than your emotions. Know how to sway from self-loathing and self-pity and direct your attention to a creative idea, a nurturing place, or a happy memory where you can transmute the negative energy. Before you react, understand your emotions. Do nothing in a whim that you will regret afterwards. Sometimes, when we’re feeling too low or too high in our emotions, reactions become automatic. Breathe first, take a break, and start thinking of the actions you’re about to take. Self-awareness goes a long way. What are you feeling? What form does it want to be released? How can you transform it to something better? When you’ve mastered self-awareness, you don’t take things personally and you see every external factor that might have affected the situation. You understand it more. It’s not always rainbows and unicorns when you traverse your entrepreneurial journey. There will be a lot of failures and mistakes even how prepared you are. As much as possible, learn how to disassociate yourself with the negative energies this brings and to focus instead on the ultimate goal. “Happiness is the reward, not the purpose.” Always aim to grow and improve yourself. Continue learning and continue giving value. Enjoy the small victories. Gratitude and appreciation to everything that happens in your journey can motivate you to hustle more towards your end goal. BEST MOMENTS “It’s good to have a perspective on what can happen potentially on the downsides.” “Tension’s got to go somewhere.” “You can’t deny your emotions.” “As we create a way out of pain, we actually can take more pain on.” “Challenge creates growth.” “Don’t wish it were easier; get better!” “As an entrepreneur, essentially, what we do is we find the world’s biggest problems and we solve them for profit.” “If it gets difficult, just keep going.” “The purpose of life is growth and self-actualisation.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill Neil Gaiman - neilgaiman.com SuperGenius Ltd Events | Eventbrite - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/supergenius-ltd-4145014407 SuperGenius Website - https://www.supergeniuslife.com/ ABOUT THE GUEST Ryan Pinnick is the CEO & Founder of SuperGenius, a training and mentoring provider based in the UK and have been running workshops since 2015.

Caffeine Cast: How Fast Should You Really Grow

“I believe you can grow too fast, if you’re just obsessed about growth, things will break”   Growing your business empire is a goal for most entrepreneurs, but how do you do this successfully? In this episode of the Disruptive Entrepreneur, Rob discusses Growth. He discloses his top tips on how to grow your company's success as well as discussing common shortfalls of how attempting growth can fail. Listen today to find out more about how to grow your company.   KEY TAKEAWAYS REDUCE YOUR RISKS- Collaborate. Reduce your risks in the testing phase or growing your company. Progressive is looking to expand globally. Test by using a partner, they will have their own contacts, their own resources. That way, I don’t create overheads, I don’t create fixed costs and I don’t really have much risks. I am a big believer in collaborations, I know a hugely successful events company, and I always wondered how they consistently filled out huge events. I then found out they have a central company in America, and then what they do they find the big promoters in the countries and they partner with that promoter. They have one hub and they have global partnerships, that dramatically reduce your risks. If you’re in property, just see every new purchase, builder or mortgage as a test. Then, when you find a good one, do everything you can to keep them and that partnership. PUSHING GROWTH- Capacity How far do you push growth? I think this depends on your personality,  your available resources, experience, your systems, your capacity your capital resources, human resources, etc. There is no hard and fast rule. You want to build a good sense of self-awareness. What is your capacity for what you can take on? There is a really fine line between being on fire and being overwhelmed. Growth forces you to improve your systems, improve your mindset. Sometimes, being pushed too much is fine, but I think you have to test the capacity of what breaks. What is your previous experience? For example, if you have never bought a buy to let before, how do you know how many you can handle? I have business mentors that have a mindset ‘don’t hire anybody until something breaks’ I would have other people that would argue ‘hire in first, so things don’t break’. A common entrepreneurial trait is to never say no. This is both a blessing and a curse. Remember, when you get to maximum capacity, you need to learn when to say no.   WHAT IS YOUR END GOAL? What do you want from this business? Some people want a lifestyle business, they want a passive, recurring income. They want to work from their laptops for a few hours a week. If this is your goal, you must learn to say no. You have to slow growth down.   If you want to be an active entrepreneur, you may have just a year to replace your income. You have the time and desire to hustle hard you can then take on a lot more.   It is the continual building of self-awareness to know what your limits are.     CONTACTS You have to build your contacts. If you have three really good brokers, you can probably buy a few deals simultaneously, if you have never used one before, then you have to go through the pain of finding one. If you have refurb teams, that you can entrust to run multiple contacts simultaneously then you can handle the capacity to do multiple refurbs at one. If you’ve not got this, then you would be unable to do this.   Growing your contacts will grow your business.   CAPITAL The available capital that you have to spend on growing your business will reflect the growth. If you have more than enough capital, you can scale a bit quicker. If you do not have this, then the growth phase will take longer.     BEST MOMENTS “Some people often say that in order for businesses to be successful they have to be ever-growing, I'm not sure I agree with that”   “I believe you can grow to fast” “if you’re just obsessed about growth, things will break”   “Growth forces you to improve your systems, improve your capacity, your mindset.”   “find and hire smart people to give them a little bit too much to do and then get out of their way and let them do it”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

David McCourt: Billionaire Media Mogul, Producer & Entrepreneur

‘Why would you not live an extraordinary life over an ordinary life when you have the choice?’ Rob is interviewing David McCourt, billionaire businessman described by ‘The Economist’ as having ‘impeccable credentials’  Over the last thirty years he has founded multiple successful companies and is one of the world’s most successful award-winning entrepreneurs with an Emmy award and a personal worth in excess of 1 billion. They discuss inspirational films, books, money, motivation and why David is only just getting started. This is an incredibly inspiring and motivational episode with huge value,  you will want to listen to it more than once get started now!   KEY TAKEAWAYS Money There are so many other more interesting things you can do with your money than buy stuff People have stuff because they want you to believe they are rich, smart, powerful and handsome. You could use your money to start a business, grow a business, help a charity to get started, help someone else, start a business or buy land and give it to conservation. My attitude towards money and wealth hasn’t changed over time. I know a lot more now about life and business relationships, what I want to accomplish in my life and what I don’t want to waste my time on. It’s important to recognise that lots of people don’t have money so if you do you have no right to squander it you should use it to build value and solve problems create jobs You should try to move the ball down the field for other people. Entrepreneurship For years incremental thinking was enough but now things are moving so fast we need a total rethink to solve problems. Don’t be afraid of failing because your ‘plan B’ will be better than your ‘plan A’ Your ‘plan B’ by definition will be more successful than your ‘plan A’  because you already know what not to do. If you want to be an entrepreneur you can’t be afraid of what others think and say you’ve got to always be moving forward and never back. Strength and weakness In everything, the focus is on improving areas of weakness but the statistical data that suggests you can only make marginal improvements to your areas of weakness but you can improve in your areas of strength almost infinitely. The system finds it easier to put everyone in the same box and this results in lots of people who look and sound the same. Everyone is good at something and that something is what the individual should focus on not worrying about the things they are not good at and improvement can be almost infinite.  The media There are now so many content distributers it’s a content creators world but you have to be able to survive and make money. It’s a fantastic new world for good content creators, if you follow a trend you can make money but if you follow a fad you’ll go broke. A Total Rethink - Entrepreneurs should act like  revolutionaries   There is a story that needs to be told. The world has been operating with a basis of incremental change in business and in life since the industrial revolution but now everything is moving so fast we need to change the way we look at the problems. A change in approach and thinking is necessary for the planet and also offers great opportunities for making money. The book doesn’t solve all the problems but it highlights the big problems and highlights how I’ve solved similar problems with suggestions of how we could solve some of the global problems based on my personal experience. Motivation Why would you live an ordinary life when you don’t have to? Money is not my motivation and I’m just getting started everything I’ve learnt up until this point is for what I’m going to do next and I haven’t yet done the big thing I’m meant to do.   BEST MOMENTS ‘It isn’t a political problem it’s a global problem and the business opportunity is in solving the problems’ ‘People have to work out what makes them happy in life’ ‘If they see a problem that they want to solve why would they not take a chance for  happiness’ ‘The only equaliser between us all is time’ ‘It's way easier to buy something than start something’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ Total Rethink book by David McCourt David McCourt LinkedIn David McCourt website Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography book by Isaacson   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

How to Survive the Chaos in Business

Have you ever wondered how you would survive in business? Have you ever considered how to grow your company whilst avoiding the chaos and breakages every start-up faces? Well, in today’s episode of the Disruptive Entreprneur, you’re about to find out! Tune in to hear Rob dive into business survival and discuss the things that break the disruption of growth. Discover how to overcome the challenges and difficulties your business will inevitably face as you grow in size and influence and learn how to focus on surviving and thriving regardless of the chaos around you.   KEY TAKEAWAYS The Growth Paradox Growth is the thing all entrepreneurs strive for. It’s what drives us forward each year but when is it ever enough? Because the faster you grow the more things break and the faster they break. However, if you’re okay with dealing with the breakages of growth it’s okay to grow aggressively The harder you grow the more chaos and disruption there is so, balance your growth plans with something that realistic and achievable but that’s also exciting.   Overwhelm & Delegation As you grow you need to begin to delegate and outsource all of the things that you used to do because now you will be overwhelmed. But whatever you do, don’t overgrow and under delivery, ensure you plan throughout your growth so you’re prepared for the overwhelm when it comes. Always be proactive to growth and not reactive, but regardless, always grow. Sometimes it’s better to launch a campaign without the planning and cause the growth without any order or plan in place. If you have the right team around you, the order will come afterwards. Growth is followed by order and vice versa, it’s the cycle of a growing business.   Culture Shifts Train help and support other members of staff. You can’t be selfish anymore and you need to build a team around you with systems and documents to run the day-to-day business so you can focus on the growth. As you grow and embrace your team you’ll discover a level of leverage and management, now it’s important to save time by hiring and training others, however, with this mean you’ll need to have performance plans, management KPI’s and go through a culture change as your business grows.   Layers Of Management As you get bigger you need layers of management in your business and you need to begin to work less but watch and observe more. Avoid the natural entrepreneur tendencies to always work and begin to work on your business rather than in your business. With the growth and the layers of management, you start to find staff that hide and do not necessarily pull their weight for the business. Always be prepared for the culture shifts and ready for growth but don’t lose your one-man-band, innovative feel because that’s your growth area.   Freedom Ultimately you have freedom by owning the business however you’re responsible for the business, your brand, your online presence and the careers of those that work with you to achieve the businesses goals. People don’t work for you, everyone works for themselves and they use you in their life if you meet there values and needs. If this is the case, loyalty will be created. Therefore, if you understand your employee’s and their motivations the chance of a fruitful working relationship increases and breeds longevity. Always look to hire ambitious people that are invested in their career growth and try to meet their needs and relate to their values.   Management Of Your Emotions Become a leader by owning your business and inspiring your staff. You can't manage with your emotions. Don’t let your emotions control your actions and instead focus on your business, train your staff and develop systems in your business. Often we react emotionally because something has touched a nerve and we act before we can speak. Most of the time the best way to handle a situation with critics, trolls and haters is to say nothing and simply focus on your business and serving your customers.   Competitors Don’t hate your competitors be obsessed about learning from them, but don’t let it compromise your own focus and vision for your business to grow. Your competitors should energise you and your business so focus on your clients more than your competition. Always look to serve your customers to the best of your ability. See your competition as someone that keeps you lean, motivated and hungry to grow and improve your product offering. Increased competition in your market place is a good thing, it pushes the industry forward and increases exposure for everyone operating in the market place.     BEST MOMENTS “When growing your business you’ll face chaos, breakages, challenges and difficulties” “There’s a great upside to knowing all of the challenges you’ll face in business, the legalities, the competition and how to innovate through difficult markets and grow through recessions.” “I work for my team and provide them with what they need.” “Discipline equals freedom and hardcore accountability leads to freedom”       VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/DisruptiveEntrepreneursCommunity/   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: What Dr John Demartini Taught me About Life (LIVE)

We worry what people think about us but some common false assumptions that people make is that we can make everyone like us and that they’re thinking about us all of the time. One of the most important and liberating things is to accept that there will always be people who support you and people who don’t. KEY TAKEAWAYS In any time and space there will be someone who loves you, someone who loathes you, someone who supports you, someone who challenges you, someone who stands against you and someone who doesn’t like you. It’s likely that someone on this plant has very similar values to you but it’s also very likely that there is someone who has the complete opposite values to you. Those who have similar values to you will support you and those who have opposite values to you will challenge you. For humanity as a group to be better, individuals have to be better and to be better we have to interdependently serve each other. We all produce and consume for each other which means we all have to be better at different things. No matter who you are there will always be someone who supports you and someone who doesn’t support you. Accepting that is liberating. When you don’t put yourself out there because you’re scared of critics, you don’t actually have any less critics, you just don’t know who they are yet because you haven’t put yourself our there. BEST MOMENTS ‘Every human has an individual set of values that are most important to them in their life’ ‘Everybody is different and no two people are the same’ ‘Evolution seems to be to me a random selection of improvement of genetics.’ ‘Be stronger not weaker, be better not worse.’ VALUABLE RESOURCES Progressive Property ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

How to Build Your Vast Personal Brand

Having an unbeatable mindset actually involves not thinking about money a lot.  So, let’s go back to the basics. What do we need to know first?  Listen to Rob answer all your questions in this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast. From creating your content to having good spending habits to pricing your products and services, Rob sheds a light on how you can improve your mindset so you can always bring your A game. When you have the right attitude when you deal with every decision or every task, it’s easier to attract success and the growth of finances. Focusing on the money, and not on the process or even the value that will come out of what you’re doing, will not bring you abundance.  Start listening and learn more from Rob.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Why do some people fear success? What they are afraid of is not the success itself but the consequences that come with it in their relationships. We can’t do anything about their insecurities and their doubts about us.    How do you accurately price your products/services? Do a market research and put into mind fair exchange. First, make sure that what you’ll put out is something valuable and sustainable to your market. If you think you already need a price increase, then test it out to find out what’s your ceiling fair exchange.  What are some bad money spending habits? People spend money to stuff that can make them happy, whether it be for instant gratification or long-term investments. Rob himself is guilty with his impulsiveness, but he makes sure that he doesn’t erode his capital in the long run.  How do you identify your most valuable skill to gain the maximum money? Find what you’re passionate about. It might be something that people keep telling you you’re good at or something you have grown to love unexpectedly while choosing your career.   What do you need to target? Don’t put too much focus on increasing the finances, be process- and outcome-driven. It’s easier and more definite that the money will continuously come in when we put out something that’s improving.  How do you put yourself out there? Just do it, even if it scares you. Start putting some content out there.    How do you monetise a new show? Rob advises not to monetise it until you reach 20 episodes. You need to gain steady listeners first.   How did you grow from single deal to multiple deals? Growing your portfolio should be done incrementally. Start with single-let’s and HMOs.  BEST MOMENTS  “… the market needs you to re-invest into innovation and improving your products and services.”  “People spend on things that are of highest value to them.”  “It feels like a paradox. On the one hand, you feel like you’re too old to start, and you want to go all in and you’ve exhausted yourself.”  “It’s about challenging yourself to maintain discomfort.”  “When you do small things that you fear overcoming, they get easier and then you could do the bigger fears that you fear overcoming.”  “Too bigger growth in your mindset is a big risk to your account balance.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast: Katie Hopkins: Britain's Most Hated Woman?

Caffeine Cast: Entrepreneurship & Alcohol, Do They Mix?

“I made a very strategic decision about 5 years ago to stop drinking alcohol.”  There is no judgement from me in this episode; I just wanted to share with you all my views on whether alcohol and entrepreneurship work together. I get asked about this a lot by people because I don’t drink alcohol anymore.   KEY TAKEAWAYS  As I got older my hangovers got longer and when I’m working for myself I always want to be on it and energetic. Drinking essentially made me waste a lot of time and for me, time is money.  I find that when I drink, even if I only have 2, it makes me tired, grumpy and want to go to bed early and still have a bit of a hangover the next day. For someone like me who’s an ‘all or nothing’ type of guy I could just not drink and use my time more effectively.   If drinking is a big part of your social and business life, then maybe drink on a Friday so you’re fresh and ready by Monday. Or you could just drink once a month rather than every week.  I don’t believe there’s any harm in quitting drinking and I’m aware there is a lot of social pressure to drink.  You could try testing 1 month without any alcohol and see what happens. You might find that you don’t actually enjoy drinking.  For me, business and entrepreneurship is really important and drinking alcohol isn’t.  BEST MOMENTS  ‘Alcohol affects productivity.’  ‘If you can have control and know your limit then that’s good self discipline.’  ‘Discipline is doing something you should do even if you don’t want to be doing it.’  ‘I found 0 is easier and better than 2 drinks per week.’  ‘I don’t think you should worry about what other people think and all of the other social pressures.’  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Katie Hopkins: Britain's Most Hated Woman? Like You’ve Never Seen Her

In this truly fascinating episode, Rob is in conversation with Katie Hopkins, media personality and the most controversial former contestant of  ‘The Apprentice’. They discuss everything from the importance of being liked or not through to epilepsy and dismantling the mainstream media. This raw and honest episode is full of surprises and listening will challenge what you think about an individual who regularly polarises with her comments. If you think you know all about Katie Hopkins then listen in and find out if you really do!   KEY TAKEAWAYS You don’t genuinely need to be liked? I know all the right things I need to say and do to be loved they just don’t happen to be views that I hold. If you are honest about what you think, 50% of people may hate you but a good amount of people will warm to you because not many people are honest and prepared to be hated for it. We all go through a process of needing to reconcile what people have said about us. I need to be loved by my family and a few people who are close to me. I appreciate people who tell me I’m doing a good job but those who stop me and tell me they hate me are of no importance to me. What people read in the media is an element of me and I have to be responsible for it, they gained that impression of me from my commentary. It can be vile to them but is a truth for me. We all have truths and my truth may be completely different to your truth about something but none of us thinks we are being dishonest. Is there anything you shouldn’t have said? There is nothing I would retract, apologise for or explain. I acknowledge there will some things out there that I shouldn’t have said but you can’t ever apologise or explain on twitter because you will never win. Your critics can be good for your career, your posts don’t go viral from the people who post nice comments, they go viral when someone gets upset and there is a massive sub-thread and argument. What’s it like being in the public eye? When you’ve been in the public eye you build resilience and recognise that a lot of people who are critical of you, want to be you. I’m good at dealing with criticism but not that great at dealing with compliments. If you get 9 compliments and 1 troll it's vital you don’t just respond to the troll. If you get a compliment it’s important to own it with thanks. We can spend lots of our time looking and hearing from the same faces in the media when the really interesting stuff is everyone else. The everyday interactions and conversations we are all a part of make up the genius of life. What’s being disruptive for you? Disruption for me is not being satisfied and going along with things because it’s easier. It’s always harder to swim upstream but it’s so worth it. Swim upstream and you'll be alright.   BEST MOMENTS ‘You say things that other people don’t have the courage to say’ All the best people are mad, all the best people are weird and if you are  mad, weird and alone, I believe you are heading in the right direction’  ‘That’s what anybody involved in alternative media is about, we are trying to be ahead of stuff’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ Rude book by Katie Hopkins  Katie Hopkins Twitter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: Why I Interviewed Katie Hopkins

So, here’s a prelude to one of the most controversial episodes of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast which will be shown next week! Next episode will feature Katie Hopkins, a well-known English media personality. If you’ve watched the snippets that were posted on the podcast’s social media lately, then you’ve also seen the reactions of people in the comments section. Some liked it, some got curious and are waiting for the upcoming full episode, some were dismissive about Katie’s guesting, some disagreed with her comments, and so on. Rob just stayed cool and open-minded when responding to everyone. But, today, let’s listen to Rob what he thought about this whole situation. KEY TAKEAWAYS Rob always knew that there is a big risk interviewing big personalities like Katie Hopkins. And, when he consulted a few people just to test the waters if this will be a great idea, most said yes because they thought the discussion will be interesting. Rob doesn’t want any discussion to turn political, so it was a full-on effort for him to be careful and be neutral on any controversial stuff when mentioned. The podcast wants to feature a wide range of guests. It wouldn’t be called a ‘holistic growth’ if we only get to hear just one side. Let things challenge you and your preconceived notions.

How to Start & Scale Any Business (LIVE)

‘The business will only grow at the speed you grow.’ In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob dives deep on how you can start and scale any business in any industry. If you ask what should be on your planning board, then first, know your ultimate vision. When you’re aware of it, deciding on the strategies, management, sales & marketing, and the product & services you’ll offer, will be manageable. Aside from these, Rob also discusses the four stages of scaling up a business, the value of your team in your business, and the benefits of self-actualisation. Everything should get easier to plan and execute since Rob got everything covered today. Start tuning in to discover more. KEY TAKEAWAYS Vision – Before you plan on the technical side (operations, human resource, finance, etc.), make sure you’ve created a clear-cut vision for yourself and the business. But don’t be too anal about it you’d end up perfecting it for years before you start the business—you can start with one sentence and make it develop from there. Strategy – When you’ve already gauged who your end users are, it’s easier to plan how you can get your message, products, and services to them. Leadership – Who will execute and refine the business strategies? Management – All individuals involved must understand very well the company’s vision and objectives. The team must have the same outcome in mind, so there is always progress. Show your team members your culture and your vision, but you got to let them do their thing their own way. Create an environment where existence of mistakes is accepted, so it’s easy for them to get back from it. Sales & Marketing – Sales & marketing is very important to make your vision substantial. Marketing is generating leads while sales is converting leads. Products & Services – What are you offering and selling? Is it information, a product, or a service? The best resources when you start your business are creativity, resourcefulness, enthusiasm/energy, innovation, ability to solve problems, and flexibility. BEST MOMENTS “If you have a vastly compelling vision, that will do a lot of the selling.” “Leadership and management are totally different—usually, great leaders are terrible managers.” “Development is constantly challenging, training, and inspiring from tactical to manager to leadership.” “If you grow yourself personally, you learn to let go of things, you learn to prioritise well.” “How do we contribute to the survival of humanity? By becoming the best version of ourselves.” ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: How to Grow Your Business Without Sleepless Nights!

In this episode of TDE Rob explains how you can improve your sleep by becoming more strategic and less operational within your business. Rob also covers the importance of marketing and sales within your business and how you can make improve your systems so that your business becomes more sustainable.    KEY TAKEAWAYS Mark and I draw half of the profit and reinvest the rest back into the business and have done for several years. Look at what your net profits are, look at what you’ve got in your retained profits and make a goal of withdrawing X amount and retain X amount. You’ve got to feel like you’re earning enough out of your business to feel grateful to be in your business otherwise you’ll resent your business if you’re working in it all of the time and the profit is always a promise for the future but not today When you hire staff, try your best to make sure that they’re revenue-generating and their salary is paid for by their job. People will react in an emotionally volatile way and will be more susceptible to ‘get rich quick’ things when they’ve got not any money or are in debt. The more strategic and less operational you are within the business, the easier you’ll be able to sleep at night. Most people don’t focus enough on marketing, the solution to most cash flow problems is marketing and sales. Building multiple streams of leads doesn’t mean doing all streams at once. Have a budget and save 20% of that budget to spend on testing on new marketing streams. BEST MOMENTS ‘Free markets rely on competition forces, continual improvement and innovation.’ ‘Always reinvest enough money for improvements to the business.’ ‘People think salaries are a lot of risk but it’s not.’ ‘When you’ve got a wall of cash you’re more likely to make better choices.’ ‘Prepare for growth, grow, repair after growth and repeat.’ ‘Have multiple streams of marketing.’ ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Dealing with Depression in Business

“All depression and loneliness by definition is just 10x worse in business when you’re alone.” Entrepreneurs aren’t bulletproof in terms of their well-being. The rollercoaster of schedule, tasks, and various people you meet can take its toll on your mental health, and consequently, on your business. In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, Rob helps you on dealing with depression in business. First off, it’s important to consult a professional when you think you’re feeling there’s something wrong. The following are just different ways on how you can understand your mind and personality to avoid any mental illness from happening and to keep your business running. A high-performance company needs individuals with healthy mental well-being. Discover more when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS It’s OKAY to ask for help; it’s okay to be vulnerable. It doesn’t mean that you’re weak and incapable. You’re just acknowledging that you’re human—you’re not a superhuman, a god, or an omnipotent body. We face challenges, struggles and failures, and each of us are only equipped with limited resources. Accept that you need others. Don’t self-medicate. Consult professional help. If you feel any imbalance in your body and mind, then don’t hesitate to approach someone. Be wary of what might have caused this. Maybe you’re overworking yourself or overthinking about stuff. Meeting and inspiring other people can instantly lift your spirits. Get around nature—when exposed to the beauty of it, all fears, stress, and doubts are removed. Exercise also to remove all the toxins and to release happy hormones. The challenges that come in your life should be a motivation for you to better yourself and to conquer each day. It’s unpredictable when and how they come in your life. Never doubt yourself that you’ll never get past them—you need them to learn and to grow. BEST MOMENTS “You’re not alone even if you feel you are.” “Talking with other people is cathartic.” “When you let things bottle up, you become subservient or slightly weak.” “Don’t deny what you’re feeling; allow to feel what you’re feeling.” “Having critics is great because it prepares you for your higher level of your business.” ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: Tasks You Can Outsource on Social Media

In this episode of TDE Rob explains the tasks that your social media manager should be doing and why each task is important. He also breaks down how you should portion the different types of content up. Find out how you can get the most out of outsourcing your social media by listening to this episode…  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Give them the job specification, the mission and vision of your business, the key result areas, the income generating tasks and then the other tasks.   Some of the tasks should be:  Let them run with the social media that you use the least using an app or software where you don’t have to give them your passwords but can still give them access to your account.  Get them to repurpose your content that you’re not already posting into. For example, take a FB live video and create other social media posts from that.  You want them to increase the amount of posting that you already do.

If they’re not interested then ask them for a referral, they are likely to know someone similar to themselves interested in your products or services.   Content market and build your network on Linkedin, the social media designed for business.

Dealing With The Hardest Challenges of Your Life (LIVE)

In today’s episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, listen to Rob answer all the questions from the participants during the Mindset & Money Event at the Progressive Headquarters last July 21. It didn’t only promise to help improve their business mindset, but the event also encourages personal development.  Discover how to find you WHY, how to squash your overpowering ego, how to attain happiness, why gratefulness is the key to everything, why start honing your public speaking skills and many more. Equip yourself with the knowledge when you’re about to set out on your journey. Learn also how Progressive was able to scale up when you tune in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Finding your WHY is not the be-all and end-all. It’s okay to be unsure about where you’re going. You can start and continue your journey while you’re looking for your WHY.  Get rid of the external influences that break your mindset. If you’re getting too caught up with political news and current events, stop watching TV and reading the newspaper. If you’ve noticed a person who only wants to see you lose, then cut them off.  Note also that it’s also problematic hanging around people who always say YES to your ideas and opinions. You need the challenge, not just support. Surround yourself with people who you can learn from – from their experiences, stories, and wisdom.  How to move your ego out of the way? Since it will impede your growth, learn to be humble. Don’t market yourself as an expert if you aren’t.  Happiness is progress towards a worthy goal. It’s moving towards, not away from, what matters for you. It’s about overcoming the challenges and feeling amazing afterwards.  Always be grateful with not just the opportunities but also the challenges. Here are things you can tell yourself to make it easy:  It could be worse.   It’s just a first-world problem.   I get to show the world what I’m about by solving it.   There are lessons behind these problems.  Public speaking is a fundamental skill. It increases your confidence, your engagement, and your value.  There’s an infinite amount of opportunities around you. Just don’t let your fear and doubts get in the way on owning them. There are only two outcomes: success and failure. If it comes to the less good outcome (failing), then the best thing to do is to treat is an experience and to learn what you can from it.  BEST MOMENTS  “Find a paradox, then there’s the wisdom.”  “Balancing of the selfish and selfless is probably self-mastery.”  “Only hang out with people who want you to want.”  “Believe in not where you are now; believe in where you will go. Believe in not who you are but who you will become.”  “If you don’t market your products and services, then your competition will.”  “It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well.”  “My work is my art.”  “You stay motivated by having consistent time into a venture when you know you’re moving forward.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Progressive Property  Simon Sinek  ABOUT THE HOST  Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Caffeine Cast: My 5 Biggest Business Mistakes (& Lessons Learned)

Learning from others mistakes is the best way for you to avoid unnecessary setbacks in business. In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur, Rob reveals 5 of his biggest mistakes he personally made in business and how he has learnt from them so you don’t have to make them yourself. KEY TAKEAWAYS Not embracing marketing. You could have the best shop with all the latest systems, modern design and hottest products. However, if you don’t have anybody in your shop then you have no business. Marketing is getting people through the doors of your shop through generating leads, building on existing relationships to gain repeat customers. Get your story out there to build trust. Over listening to the critics. We hate to admit it but critics are vital to success, take the negative feedback as constructive criticism and use it to build on your business and improve. Having the fear and accountability of impressing critics will force you to improve but unfortunately you can’t please everybody, don’t let yourself become overwhelmed. Inconsistent management. You must understand the different styles of management and leadership and how each has their own benefits and downfalls. It’s key to implement both styles in your business to cater for different areas. Doing business alone. Rob shares how his experience in being a property investor has taught him that you cannot do business alone if you want to succeed. You need to work with people with the correct skill sets and attributes to achieve the greater goals faster than if you try to attempt everything yourself. No one is self-made, the Yin to the Yang must be outsourced. Slow reporting. Rob explains why it’s key to keep on top of your business metrics, so many businesses don’t know how they’re doing in terms of their financial position, cash in the bank, P&L etc. All of the answers as to where you need to improve and grow in your business lie in your balance sheet and your KPIs. BEST MOMENTS ‘Improve, innovate, stay humble’ ‘Your worst critic of all can be yourself, the voice of past mistakes’ ‘You are not a failure, you just fail from time to time’ ‘It’s very rare that you get a good manager and good leader simultaneously’ ‘You do what makes you feel alive, what you have the greatest skill, experience and interest in’ ‘You cannot master what you do not measure’   Valuable Resources: Rob Moore - Books: https://robmoore.com/books/ Rob Moore – Podcasts: https://robmoore.com/podcast/ Information on Host with best point of contact Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.

Recruitment agencies, outsourcing sites, referrals, and even social media.   Don’t hire entrepreneurs or a version of yourself. Hire for the role.

How to Like (Love) Yourself More

Stop with the self-loathing. Nothing can be done and achieved if we stay in this rathole full of our own doubts, feats and insecurities. In this episode of The Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast, let Rob help you uplift your spirits and be more confident about yourself. Learn some simple steps that you can follow so you can start liking and loving yourself more. Always remember that you’re worthy, unique, and bound for greatness. Challenges and failures are going to be part of your journey. Don’t get bothered by the setbacks. Instead, accept that they happen, learn from them, and do everything to emerge victorious. KEY TAKEAWAYS Have a clear vision for what you want to be known by many and who you want to be. Rob writes the targets he wants to reach every six months. Take good care of yourself. When you’re too occupied on accomplishing your goals, we tend to impair our own health and well-being. Don’t let it happen since we need to release tension and recharge energy so we can do more. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Remember that you are unique. Believe and embrace what you see in yourself. Stop comparing yourself, your journey, and your desired success to others’. You can get inspiration ad motivation from your mentors, the well-known entrepreneurs and other people, but you can’t copy them. You are not them. Document your experiences and stories. Write it down on a journal, do a live video, or record and release it as a podcast. It’s therapeutic to release everything, and at the same time, you’re also producing content. Dare to dream. Start with something small then start achieving it. When you’ve achieved it, it’s time to plan your next goal. Master something. If you’re very good at one thing, that instantly add confidence on yourself. The emotions are not you. It’s normal that you feel; you’re a human being. 3 A – Acknowledge, Accept, and Act. Do selfless acts. Helping and supporting other people gives you so much fulfilment. Know the importance of sleep and exercise. Learn to say NO. Know what opportunities are you going to grab, and know what you’re going to reject. Make yourself happy. BEST MOMENTS “No one is perfect and we’re all going to fail frequently.” “Don’t go beat yourself up if you can’t live up to the expectations of who you want to be.” “You’re the one that suffers when you don’t forgive other people.” “Comparison is the thief of joy.” “You need to make yourself happy first.” VALUABLE RESOURCES I’m Worth More: Realise your real value and earn your success by Rob Moore ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor and property educator.
