01:24 Imagine what it would feel like to have high quality leads constantly coming in and closing sales with, with almost no pressure at all. And you don’t need to really study any sales techniques. And that’s kinda what I meant about my book and how to double your business without making a sale is you do all this–if you implement this stuff and you try these ideas that worked very, very well for us,  you don’t have to worry so much about the sales strategy, sales techniques, and imagine that your community loves you for this.

I mean so much that, you’re featured in the paper times. You are given awards. So you have a community awards, you’re given Business of the Month Award and awards from the paper, from the magazines. And then you win Business of the Year. Imagine this because this is what happened for us.

06:30 After we won Business of the Year, he (Joe) had come up to me to congratulate my wife April and I that night.

And he says, “You know, congratulations, you guys,” he says, “I’m so happy for you.”He says, “You know, something I find interesting–everybody knows you, but I’ve never seen you advertise.” Well, here’s why.

29:36 Our team loved this stuff. They love the paintball charity. They got in. They got to have fun. We even created a group chat, between all the teams, so they could talk smack to each other, you know, about how they’re going to beat each other.

So when it came to a tournament, right, but at the end, everybody wins and everybody loves it. And again, and your name just gets spread and spread and spread in good favor–in the paper. What would a half page ad cost? Right. If you ran an ad, what would it cost? So there’s the upfront cost and a half page ad, but not just that, how much does it really cost? Because we ignore advertisements, we ignore ads, right?

So if that would have been a great big ad about our business, everybody would have ignored it and went straight to the article or the stories.

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
