The Story

In The Success Principles, Jack Canfield talks about attending a Come as You’ll be Party in 1986.  Guests were encouraged to come with book covers, awards, clothes, and pictures that showed them as they would be living 5 years in advance.  At this event, Jack showed the cover of his New York Times bestselling book - that was nothing but a dream at that point.

In 1993 the first Chicken Soup for the Soul was released and Jack went on to write over 80 books.  More than 500 million Chicken Soup books have been sold—and the original has been translated into 40 languages.  Jack says that party flooded their minds with powerful images of already having achieved their aspirations.

Seneca says If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.

Habakkuk 2:2 from the Old Testament says: Write the vision down so that those who read it will run.

These quotes speak to how powerful vision is in our lives.



Come As You Will Be Live Event?

Aaron talks about having a vision and making it come to be.  You have to believe it in your mind first and then it will happen.  The theme caused members to talk in the future and envision where they would be.  

“At the time I stood up and shared my future I hadn’t even written my book and said I would have 10 mastermind groups.  It was scary. Now my book is written and we are getting ready to launch our 15th mastermind group and I am 50% greater than where I thought I would be and I am a year ahead of schedule.” - Aaron Walker

 

Mindset Change

You must work your way to it becoming real and not just perceived.  Aaron talks about what has to happen today. You must focus on the things that matter and plan. The 12 Week Year has changed the way we do things.  In Iron Sharpens Iron we have daily and weekly accountability partners that keeps us going.

“In Iron Sharpens Iron we focus on the task not the goal.” - Aaron Walker

I'm in Financial Trouble and See No Way Out

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 4, 2019 9:00:00 AM

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
