Description

Hard Hitting No BS Content on business, life, and Entrepreneurship, with Billy Farrell.

Episode Date
107: Being Seduced By Noise and Excitement
10:09

"I'm working on multiple deals..." Let's see. Is it noise? Or is there something to it? Too often, people will tell me about all of the wonderful opportunities they're working on - which is great - but they often lack substance. Sometimes, we get caught up and seduced, by our own excitement. We let big chat, big ideas, and noise, throw us off track. It's an easy trap to fall into. Better to focus, and work to get shit done, than be a busy fool, achieving nothing...

106: Is It Better To Be Visible Or Valuable?
09:49

Is it better to be visible, or valuable? Most folk tell you to post more, share more, do more, but if all you do is talk shite, then all you're doing is highlighting the shite you talk. On the flip side, some folk have incredible value to share but they keep it low key, for a variety of reasons. Here's the deal, there's a perfect balance that you can strike between the two. I want to share it with you, in a way that helps you generate more business and gain more exposure, whilst delivering with serious impact. Let's explore...

105: Tis The Season To Accelerate and Overtake...
09:56

"It's all slowing down for the holidays." "Let's chat in January..." No, let's talk NEVER! Have you heard this kind of chat from business owners? "It's all slowing down..." Maybe in your world, but not in mine. While some folk take their foot off the gas over Christmas, others use the opportunity to overtake and kick ass. You can still be a devoted partner and parent, soak up the holiday spirit and enjoy many special moments, but why on earth would you kill your momentum? Why on earth would you take it down a notch? Why on earth would you settle, and lower your standards? Every moment waited, is a moment wasted. Don't waste time this December. Accelerate. Overtake. Dominate.

103: It Gets Harder, Before It Gets Easier
07:38

I hate to tell you this, but it gets harder before it gets easier. That being said, it does get easier. Most people give up in business, three feet from gold. The reality of what it takes to succeed is very different from what we've been taught, but thankfully, not in a bad way...

If something is worth doing, then go all in. Why half-ass it through life, dipping your toe in the water, when the real rewards are in full immersion. In business, anything less than going all in can be dangerous. Let's explore...

The coward dies 1000 deaths, the hero only one. As human beings, our minds tend to think of the worst possible scenario, and project it into our minds. The reality is, rarely do events transpire as we imagined they would. The only thing to truly fear, is fear itself...

097: It's Business, Not Personal
12:09

Very rarely, when someone makes a business decision that hurts your personally, is it personal. Just as when you hurt others, which you will, was it intended as anything other than business. This is the real world. People are out for their own "greater good." Naivety of this fact will merely see you as being consistently on the receiving end of it...

If you get this right, you'll make an impact and you'll be memorable. If you get this wrong, you'll be another face in the sea of business cards I have no idea who gave me...

095: Business Owners. What We Can Learn From The Employed.
09:12

It's easy to work when the boss is watching, but what happens when you're the boss? The truth is, most of us should fire ourselves. There's a lot to be learned from the employed masses. Perhaps not the hump day attitude or the relentless pursuit of Friday, but the structure, routine, and forced performance, regardless of whether we're in the mood or not. Let's explore...

094: Be Uncomfortable. The Pursuit of The New Normal.
06:54

The things you once found uncomfortable, are what I like to call "The new normal..." With that being said, the things that currently terrify you, in business, and in life, are simply a "comfort zone stretch" away from becoming your new normal. If you're comfortable, chances are, you're not growing.

092: When the Black Dog Bites. The Fine Line Between Genius and Madness.
13:47

Depression sucks, and yet, many folk suffer in silence. Albert Einstein acknowledged the fine line between genius and madness. In business, many folk face the black dog. Many folk, aren't content with the norm, and that energy that drives them, that gives them the entrepreneurial spark, can many times be the same energy, that pulls us into the pit of despair. If you're facing this, you are not alone. It's more common than you think. Let's explore this idea.

086: It is Not The Critic Who Counts...
10:10

As entrepreneurs, we are unconventional people operating in a conventional world. As we step out and do something different, we incur the opinions and criticism of our families, our friends, social media, the pundits, and every other human being watching; but it is not the critic who counts. Today, let's break down Teddy Roosevelts classic quote, and apply it to modern life in business.

We all know the difference between good and bad acting. When someone performs so well that we completely buy into the character, we know we're looking at a world class performance.
