Expert session snapshot
Launch and it was setting a big goal and for most people would look at it and say well that’s aggressive for your first launch and yes it was aggressive for the first launch but the first thing I did step one is I looked around at what the best were doing so it’s you can come into a space as step one and look around your industry and you can look at either averages or you could look at what would be good or you could look at what the best are doing and set a great goal for yourself and set a goal that’s a little scary for yourself and set a goal that challenges you.
So number one is look around at what the best are doing right because you can learn a lot from the best that’s in step one step two is then you set a big goal that’s gonna challenge normal standards and even it’s gonna challenge great standards and so those two are super super important to get started with actually setting the goal and when you do that something happens when I did it was like we were just and it wasn’t like a million dollars or seven figures was gonna be our goal and we’re gonna try to get it was like setting it like it’s done and and that’s the important thing.
The distinction of we’re gonna try and hit a million or no I’m setting this as if it’s done and I’m gonna do whatever is necessary within my ethics and within standards and of course you know rules to make sure that this thing happens and and it’s knowing when you set that big goal as step 1 or step 2 you set a big goal by looking at the the industry leaders in step one of who are the best right use that as your benchmark step 2 setting that big goal that you’re scared about but you’re setting it as if it’s done and you know you can look at this as a thing of like I was just a spiritual thing or whatever however you look at it you look at it but here’s the rational practical aspect of it when you get into going after that big goal expect doubts expect uncertain needs to expect times where the roller coaster is down and it’s and it’s sticking to that that that that goal of that decision of it’s done and no matter what you find a way so when you have look at the best and step one of the best in the industry sub one and then step two you said that that big challenging goal that’s going to excite you that’s already done step three is as you find the resources to get it done and you here’s the thing you don’t have these resources right now most people don’t have the resources when you set a goal to say you know we were gonna do a million dollar launch.
We didn’t have all the resources right we had to then once we set it and committed to it as if it was done we had to act like it was done so in step three we had to find the resources meaning okay we’re gonna find everything we need to know about this particular area that we don’t know right now so that’s part of finding the resources like what is it that I don’t know that I need to know who is it that I know that’s done it that I need to know right so what is it that I don’t know that I need to know and who is it that’s done it that I need to know and connect with and by figuring out those couple things right there I mean what I did is I got on the phone and interviewed all my friends who did million-dollar launches because I wanted to know what I didn’t know I also connected with the people that I needed to know that had already the answers to it and there’s an element of this that I think sometimes you know in step three of finding the resources then moves you to step four.
That is there’s an element of textbook that you need to follow to accomplish something and what I mean by that is a lot of times as an entrepreneur and I know I’m guilty of it you can be a doer and you can be a very action and a bias towards action I have a bias towards action but I can tell you one thing just being an activator in things isn’t enough in step four you got to know the textbook way to act to execute this particular thing and you got to learn as much as you need about the textbook way of doing it and it’s important like with the launch what’s the formula I hired…
