I Can Afford It

Aaron talks about how he and his wife decided to sell their house and buy a smaller house. This has helped him realize what was important to him. For instance, family is something that means the world to Aaron. Once you are able to sit down and think about this, make sure to always take your family into consideration.

 

What Is Getting In Your Way?

Aaron asks us to evaluate what is getting in the way of our lives and what is most important to us. He would like us to take some time and really dive deep into these underlying issues. Is there something that is getting in between you and your family?

“Always air on the side of your family. Businesses don’t have feelings but family does.” - Aaron Walker

I'm in Financial Trouble and See No Way Out

In today’s show Aaron Walker discusses financial trouble and what he did and what you can do too in order to get out of it.

Stress and Financial Trouble

Aaron shares a story about a father who comes home late from work and he apologizes for being late.  He’s not giving attention to his kids or his wife due to the amount of work he needs to do. He is thinking this because of the bills he needs to pay and thinking that if he works harder he can get out of this vicious cycle.

“I was sitting at our kitchen table paying our bills, we didn’t have any children yet and literally started crying.  Robin asked what was wrong and I told her we can’t pay our bills, we don’t have enough money to pay our bills.” - Aaron Walker

 

What Do You Do?

When your business is doing well and making money, you start to think that you can handle everything until the business slows down and you can’t.  Aaron and his wife took all of their credit cards that they were using and put them in an envelope, sealed it and took it to the bank and they have been there for over 30 years unopened.  Best decision the Walker’s ever made.

“You always default back to the path of least resistance.” - Aaron Walker

 

Over-Extended, Lack of Priorities

Sometimes we find ourselves over-extended and our priorities are all messed up.  According to Big A this leads to a vicious cycle of catching up and deciding to pay this or that.  In his younger years there were times when Big A put money in front of his family and that caused incredible stress on him.   That’s reactive living. That’s living outside of your means. Big A got rid of his credit cards, started living within his means, delayed gratification, and began to be proactive with his finances.   Since then, he’s been able to be much more present and connected with his family. In short, he has his priorities in order.

“It will allow you to be more present with your family at home.  You won’t feel the need to do one more email, one more client, I just have to close this deal so I can make that payment.  Be proactive not reactive. Build some boundaries today and take your life to the next level.” - Aaron Walker

Expert Interview with Mike Michalowicz

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 13, 2019 10:10:43 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker’s exclusive Iron Sharpens Iron expert interview with Profit First author, Mike Michalowicz as Mike shares how he turned everything around and goes deep teaching from his Profit First system.

VFTTpodcast

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Mike lost three multi-million dollar companies before his 35th birthday.  He was awarded the New Jersey's Small Business Association, Young Entrepreneur of the Year when he was 26 years old.  He sold his first company, to a private equity company and then his second company to a Fortune 500, so he's working his way up.  Mike is a former small business columnist for the Wall Street Journal. His books have been translated in 10 different languages. He's an active partner in multiple companies including an American manufacturer of business growth consultancy and an augmented reality Tech Firm in a Certification Organization for accountants, bookkeepers and business coaches, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

“The reality is, behind that was a lot of grand mistakes, horrible errors, almost losing my family, losing all my money, just really horrible stuff.  I actually think that may be some interesting components and I suspect many people listening in have experienced those elements or just challenges.” - Mike Michalowicz

 

Most Humbling Moment

Mike is married, has three children and currently lives in a beautiful section of New Jersey.  He was very successful and sold his second business for millions and started angel investing. Due to his investment choices, Mike had to share with his family that he had lost everything.  They had to move, sell all of their possessions, no sports, horse riding lessons or after school activities, then his 9 year old daughter offered to support their family.

“She ran to her bedroom, grabbed her piggy bank, and she ran back down to me and said, Daddy, I'll support our family, don't worry.  I'll support our family. And it was the most humbling moment of my life.” - Mike Michalowicz

 

Full Time Author

Mike went through 2 years of depression, started boozing and found himself in a very dark place before he finally turned it around.  Luckily for Mike he was able to climb out of the gutter. He is now a full time author and owns a few businesses. These days he is definitely living a life of both success and significance.

“I'm really writing books to fix all of my own erroneous ways and hopefully in the process of serving others to address their challenges too.” - Mike Michalowicz

 

Profit First

Mike explains that we have been taught the formula to profit incorrectly.  We have been taught that profit comes last, that profit is the bottom line.  He suggests that we put profit first and use the formula sales minus profit equals expenses.

“All I care about is the deposit came in your business immediately take a predetermined percentage of that profit, allocate it toward an account called profit.  We hide it from ourselves, we remove our profit. It's the pay yourself first principle apply to our business. And as a result, you start forcing profitability in your business.” - Mike Michalowicz

 

Join Iron Sharpens Iron

The members of Iron Sharpens Iron are quite spoiled because each month Aaron brings an expert in to speak to us regarding business, leadership, or life.  These expert interviews are just one of the ways there is tremendous value in joining the mastermind.

“I don’t know about you, but Profit First has been a huge benefit to the finances in my business.  It’s paid for some pretty great trips to the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, and Zimbabwe. And my wife always wonders how we can afford it.  I tell her the business! That’s because of profit first.” - Danny Bauer

Can You Maintain A Sense Of Character & Integrity While Competing

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 13, 2019 9:00:00 AM

In today’s podcast Aaron talks about two colleagues. One of them Dave was a trusted friend for years. The other Bob -- used to be a competitor and turned a friend. In addition to an abundant versus scarcity mindset, listeners will be reminded of the importance of relationships.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

VFTTpodcast

Competitors and Friends

Aaron talks about his business partner David and their competitor Bob.  One might think they would be at odds but over the years, Aaron found Bob to be a very honest man.  Aaron calls him a friend to this day.

Danny discusses the idea of playing a finite game where there are clear winners and losers. Aaron usually calls this game one of scarcity.  When you play a finite game you can’t win unless your opponent loses.  But the real game you need to play is infinite. This is the game of abundance. In an infinite game, everyone can win.

“During an infinite game there is no real start and finish no clear winners and losers.” - Danny Sunshine Bauer

 

Encourage Others

If you are struggling for ways to encourage and uplift others here are a few ideas:

  • If you have a podcast, blog, or vlog -- promote your friends and competitors and what they do
  • Share their work generously via social media and or email
  • Write a referral on LinkedIn

All these steps will take less than 15 minutes, but the ROI is priceless.

In Summary

In this episode, the point is how Aaron is playing an infinite game.  Danny says that Aaron has taught him that relationships are key to success and to do positive unexpected things for others frequently.

“In some respects there is no direct benefit for Aaron plugging Dave and Bob’s businesses. There are no affiliate deals. He doesn’t get a finder’s fee for someone that does business with them.  So why do it? Because it’s uplifting. It’s encouraging. It’s good for relationships and it’s good for business.” - Danny Sunshine Bauer

 

Given two people in your community:

  • One that selflessly promotes others and shares referrals
  • Or the guy who has to “crush” the competition on his way to being #1

Who would you rather work with?

And that’s why Big A has experienced so much success in his life.

Marketing Insights from Seth Godin

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 6, 2019 9:00:00 AM

In today’s show Danny Sunshine Bauer and Aaron Walker discuss how to take your business to the next level of success and build one on the foundation of significance.  This is a long game. There are no shortcuts, but you can do it. Danny and Aaron are here to tell you how.

“According to Seth Godin in This is Marketing business owners can’t be seen until they learn how to see.” - Danny Sunshine Bauer

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

VFTTpodcast

 

See What….See Who?

According to Danny, many business owners have it all wrong. They take a one size fits all approach to marketing.  They first get excited about an idea. Next they create what they think is the next big product or service that everyone will be crazy for. Now that their widget is made, they reach out to the masses of people and use shortcuts, ads, and spam to interrupt people’s attention and hopefully make a sale or two.

“But this approach does not work.  In our Iron Sharpens Iron masterminds, we talk each week how to live a life of success and significance.” - Danny Sunshine Bauer

 

Cheap and Spammy Marketing

Several business owners resort to cheap and spammy marketing when they start their business.  Danny and Aaron say they are guilty of this but credit Seth Godin with how they view the people they are trying to serve.

I think that they were just unaware.  They were just trying to make a dollar.  They were trying to create a product that they can mass market.  They tried to interrupt the market and just get people to buy. And I think it's a really bad way and Seth has really brought great clarity to my mind in how to build the tribes and how to make things that matter for people who care and really go after that tribe, that community. - Aaron Walker

So be bold. Introduce yourself. Tell them you appreciate their work. Give them a specific example. Keep it short. Say goodbye.

 

MVA

The minimal viable audience really resonated with Danny and was a game changer for him.  In discussing this with Aaron, he shares that he didn’t agree. Aaron had to read it 3 times and reflect before he shifted his mindset.

I want to have the atmosphere that we really reach out to people that want to be a great dad, a great husband, have a life of success and significance.  People that really want to rally around how to build a life of success simultaneously with significance. And I thought, you know what-there's this many people that need to probably be involved at this time.  Maybe that will change over time. Maybe it will grow. But for right now, this minimum viable audience is this group of people that we have now. We have 14 groups. We're in nine different countries around the world and I'm feeling really good about this minimum viable audience.” - Danny Sunshine Bauer

How to Increase your Ambition

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 2, 2019 9:00:00 AM

In today’s show Aaron Walker is going to talk about ambition.  Ambition is defined as an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction as power, honor, fame, or wealth in the willingness to strive for it's attainment.  How do you measure your ambition? Are you motivated or complacent?

I have huge ambitions, maybe too big at times. I struggle with turning it off and also managing my emotions if I don't achieve everything I set out to do. - Danny Sunshine Bauer

Embrace Tension

Aaron says if you're holding on to the tension or if there's no tension in your life, there's probably something going awry.  Something is not going right because you are not paying attention. Aaron points out that the good news is that it is probably helping you.  But the bad news is that the tension never leaves you.

I want to encourage you today to embrace the tension.  The tension is what keeps us safe. The tension is something in our lives that creates a thought within us.  Are we doing the right thing  - Aaron Walker

 

Keep It In Check

Sometimes we need to keep our ambition in check and some of us need to find ambition.  Aaron will continue to confront you on all fronts while keeping himself in check with his own ambition.

So we'll go on this journey together.  Right Today. I don't have all the answers for you.  I wished I did. I wished I had figured them out long time ago, but I'm studying. I'm praying.  I give it to God each and every day to learn, to continue to be ambitious, but at the same time, I want to learn to be content.” - Aaron Walker
