Entrepreneurial Intersections with Dave Woodward:
Dave Woodward goes solo for this podcast, discussing the importance behind building momentum and moving forward with your entrepreneurial journey! Dave compares a typical entrepreneurs journey to the likes of a street intersection; where there is no straight path to success, more so, a journey where red-lights and random turns are expected.
Tips and Tricks for You and Your Business:
“You are literally one funnel away. Realize though, it may take many different funnels to crack the code for you… you have to make a decision and keep moving forward.”
“There is no such in thing in an entrepreneur’s life as this straight upward road of progression… you are on a journey, it takes time and a lot of turns and things that get frustrating.”
“There is no such thing as overnight success.”
Dave brings it all together by talking about the 30days.com program, the One Funnel Away Challenge, and the excitement behind both projects. He encourages people to respect the process and do not try to avoid failing, because it happens to us all.
Speaker 1: 00:00 Welcome to funnel hacker radio podcast, where we go behind the scenes and uncover the tactics and strategies top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales, dominate their markets, and how you can get those same results. Here's your host, Dave Woodward. Welcome back
Speaker 2: 00:18 everybody. This is. I'm actually out. Just finished little morning workout and I'm walking back to the house and was walking through some of these intersections and everything else I was thinking, you know what? It's amazing to me in life how many people approach every single intersection and their life as if it's a red light and I see this happen so often, especially with people who have tried a couple of things and they don't always work exactly the way they want them and after awhile you kind of get beat up and you're like, you know what? Every single thing I do, nothing works. Every single thing I do, there's no way it'll ever. It'll just can't work and it only works for everybody else. And I think the biggest problem we see with a lot of entrepreneurs is this whole idea of, you know what? I see everyone else getting this two comma club.
Speaker 2: 01:02 I see everyone else having success. I see everyone else posting there. Things will work for them. Nothing ever works for me. Listen, in life you will always have intersections, but realize as you approach an intersection, a lot of time it's a green light. You don't have to think that every single time. It's a red light. Same thing happens as far as approaching this a little bit yellow. You can either be super cautious and not do anything or you just go for it. I see. The other thing happened where people were literally sitting at the light and it's green and everyone else starts honking behind him going, would you please move my. The reason is saying this is I was talking to someone just the other day about this whole idea as far as the one comic club, so for those of you guys aren't from the other one comma club, the way it works is one common club.
Speaker 2: 01:44 We have a program where folks on that our two comma club, so the way the two comma club works is it's basically a funnel that you have built that has done over a million dollars. Now realize that when we say this, it doesn't mean it has to all been through clickfunnels, meaning it doesn't mean every single dollar was tractor clickfunnels. We have a lot of people hit our two comma club who actually use click funnels as a lead gen and then they take them offline and they sell them through a call center or they will basically have a different merchant that we can't track or c, but it started through click funnels and because of that then they've used that. I've seen people do this in a franchise model. I've seen people to use this for call centers. I've seen all sorts of different things, but let's take an application through a webinar and then they'll sell them offline and all those people then qualify for what we refer to as the two Comma Club where they've made over a million dollars through a funnel or started with it in the funnel and then had what we referred to as a funnel stack.
Speaker 2: 02:40 So the idea here is you get started in it and you take the lead through a Webinar in application and then you take them to offline to a, a phone call and that phone call basically closes them. Or, uh, you started off with a free plus shipping offer and that free plus shipping offer after the free plus shipping offer you then have back then leads an upsale inside of the funnel that then goes to another funnel afterwards. And so you start stacking two or three funnels on top. And that even though it could be as long as the same product or service, that still qualifies for r two Comma Club. While he's insane, as people ask me all the time, is this really true? Are People really getting up building a million dollar business inside of clickfunnels? Yes. The answer is absolutely yes. We have our 352 people have done it, but my reason to bring this to your attention is so often people will say, it just doesn't work.
Speaker 2: 03:29 David can't work. It doesn't work for me. We had this thing that was the idea as far as a one funnel away and meaning you literally are just one funnel away. Realize though it may take five, six, seven, 10 different funnels to finally crack the code that works for you. So as you start looking at the intersections in your life, realize sometimes you come to a t intersection where you literally, you can't go forward. You have to go right or left, but you got to make a choice and you've got to actually take that choice and make a decision and keep moving forward. The hard part for most people is they. They look at life at every choice, as a roadblock, as there's absolutely no way in the world anything's going to work for me. Realize that for a lot of us sometimes those roads, they're under construction and they're a little bumpy at times and then they get frustrated and all of a sudden you got to.
Speaker 2: 04:21 You got to slow down a little bit. The key here is you got to have momentum. You got to keep pushing forward. You got to keep your eye on the ball as far as what. What are you trying to accomplish? I absolutely love seeing a lot of the people right now who have taken part in our 30 days, 30 days.com. A program where they literally are a. we've got a virtual summit that starts next week. I don't know when you guys are listening to this, but it starts September 17th, 18th 19th were. The challenge was if you literally lost everything, so we went out to again to our two comma club award winners and over 100 and we asked if you lost everything, what would you literally do from step one day one through day 32 to get back on top if all you had was a click funnels account and the Internet, and it's been fascinating for me to see those different things and what they've done.
Speaker 2: 05:10 More importantly for me though is now what they've done. It's what people are doing who are starting to watch this and pay attention to it. We then are going to have what we refer to as our one funnel away challenge, realizing that everybody is just one funnel away. It may take you six, seven, eight, nine, 10 different funnels. Just like when you're going down a road on any course or any map or any plot that you have, it's going to take you a couple of different turns. It's there's no such thing in life, especially as an entrepreneur, his life as this straight upward road of progression it man, it's like any other road when you're. You're on a journey, it takes a lot of time, there's a lot of turns, there's a lot of things that get frustrated and things don't go exactly the way you want, but realizing they were in your life, especially in business, that every single you come to it is not always a red light.
Speaker 2: 05:59 Realize that most of the time it's a yellow or it's a green and you're sitting there because you're not moving forward. You're not having this. You're not feeling any success. So realize that the most important thing here as an entrepreneur, you've got to have momentum. You got to keep pushing forward, and I don't care how long it takes, the key is keep moving forward. Um, I'm so excited. So, so excited to see what happens out of this one funnel away challenged because the idea behind it here is we want people to literally get started. I think the hardest part for most entrepreneurs is we're looking for the one funnel. It's got to happen this first time. I live in mount my last dollar. Dave, there's no way in the world I can't do it. Listen, I've been on my last dollar so many times that the key is you just keep going through that last dollar and there's always another dollar.
Speaker 2: 06:49 It doesn't come maybe as fast as you want. I get that, but realize you have to have momentum. You got to keep pushing forward. You gotta find a way to have a stronger why and just realize right now I'm actually outside of my house. Just got done working out and walking back and I'm fascinated as I look around and I see the struggles that people go through and as I've been really reflecting on this for awhile now, realizing that the only way you get success is by literally going through all the craziness in life. There's no such thing as an overnight success. I can tell you my success is probably my wife would say it's probably been like a 24 year. No, just kidding. It's been one of those things where I've had success and then I've had failure and I've had success, and then I've had failure.
Speaker 2: 07:39 That's part of the journey. That's part of the realize that as we talked about here, as far as this whole intersection, these entrepreneurial intersections in life, there's a lot of times where man that wrote under construction, you literally have to stop. I get it, but the key is you got to find a way around it and to me, life is all about finding, taking every opportunity possibly can to find a way of continuing to move forward. Every once in while I get it where you. You just have to pull off to the side of the road and you've got to just recollect your thoughts and kind of figure out where am I going to go next, but keep moving forward. Don't, don't get frustrated by everybody else's success. The only one that matters is you, and as long as you're moving forward and finding mentors and doing whatever it takes, you get there.
Speaker 2: 08:27 You eventually get there. The only way you don't get there is when you stop. When you pull over to the side of the road and you literally stopped or you turn around and just give up. Realize that the key to any part of this here is in any entrepreneur's journey, is to understand that you are going to come across so many different intersections, so many different challenges, so many different opportunities, and the key is to realize that listen, the harder you fight and the more you work, you truly are. You're just one funnel away and I've seen this happen so many times in my own personal life as well as in the lives of those that I work with. So I just. I hope as you take a look at this and you think you're thinking wherever you might be listening to this. First of all, I appreciate that.
Speaker 2: 09:09 I appreciate you took the time to listen to this. I hope that if I can give you any advice, encouragement at all is to understand that it's worth the journey. It's worth. It's worth going through every single intersection in your life and taking the fight. I personally believe that every single one of us have value that other people need from us, and the way you get that value is by sharing it with each other, with other people. That value can come through, sharing it through building a funnel. I hope you get some value out of listening to some of these podcasts and if it's not mine, it's somebody else's, but realize there's others out there who are there to help you, encourage you and gets you to where you want to go.
