In business, you have to always be alert and adaptable. You need to evolve; to be willing to be agile and change your game plan every now and again. If you don’t, your competitors will; and they will put you out of business. In today’s episode, Bill Rancic shares strategies to help you adapt and make your business stand out from the rest.  He talks to us about how he got on Donald Trump’s reality TV competition, The Apprentice; how he won that competition; and how he used the experience in his own business! Bill handled 13 different businesses while in the competition!

In this episode, you will…

  • Learn how to get ahead of your competition
  • Find out the importance of having a “good strategy”
  • Find out what made Bill stand out among his competitors and enabled him to win The Apprentice competition
  • Discover that setting little goals and reaching them is still a progress
  • Be inspired to never give up

Today I’m bringing to you the first 20 minutes of my Business Explosion Health Intensive. That’s right! The $7,000 weekend where business owners flew from all over the world to learn how I grew my business from zero to many millions in a very, very rapid phase.

I dove right in explained some real insights as to why I got into my business. By going behind the scenes you will get to discover the difference between truth and fiction. Live events I feel are where I’m most entertaining, most enjoyable to be around because you just can’t get the energy through just doing virtual training, face-to-face is just so much more effective!

So in this training you’re going to hear some of the stories that I don’t tell over webinars or other trainings. You’ll get to hear a little bit about my learning strategies and why having certain mental models is very, very important when endeavoring out to a new journey, whether it’s a new business, a new career or whatever it might be for you. There are certain things you will hit if you are trying to improve or get better at something. So I hope you enjoy this 21 minutes of power! Let me know what you think and make it an awesome day!
