Marketers Masterclass Review – Growing Profitable Business Online

My Crush on Richard Branson (plus an unusual business idea)

As you guys know, every once in a while I like to make small confessions.

And today is one of those days.

So come in a little closer.

Let me whisper this juicy little tidbit in your ear..

I have a little crush on Richard Branson.’

Yes-I know he’s 61 and maybe just a little old for me but I think he’s a complete heart throb.

That blond hair… That British accent…

Are you getting tingles too?

Most of all it’s his business savvy that makes my heart start to thumpin!

Sir Richard Branson started his first successful business venture at 16 with a magazine called ‘Student’ – which continually brought a fresh view on contemporary ideas. He then went on to open a chain of record stores known as Virgin records. The Virgin brand has now been expanded into over 200 companies – ranging from air travel and credit cards to health clubs and soft drinks.

And now they’re even moving into commercial space flights with Virgin Galactic.

Richard Branson is continually turning industries upside down and finding ways to serve them better.

He goes against the grain and always looks to do things differently than they’ve been done before.

Branson began doing things differently quite early in life like dropping out of school at age 15.

He went against the grain once more when he decided to name his business ‘Virgin’.

That one definitely takes some guts;)

But it has served him well.

Branson is well-known as the ‘Rebel Billionaire’ – breaking all conventional business rules.

And although there is no cookie-cutter formula to creating a successful business, there are definitely some core business lessons to be learned from the world’s most beloved entrepreneur.

The 4 biggest one’s that l’ve learned from Richard Branson include…

1. Have FUN!

Starting a business is a huge amount of hard work and requires a great deal of time so you better enjoy what you’re doing.

When you’re enjoying what you do, you’re a thousand times more likely to do it well and be successful at it.

When you’re doing what you love it’s no longer ‘work’ but play- indulging in your passions each day.

2. Create Something that Stands out

Business is all about finding ways to add value to other people’s lives…

That concept of taking an idea that you thought of in the shower or on a run -and then turning that initial thought or idea into a full-blown product.

That’s the fun stuff.

Seeing your ideas going from the initial seed of thought into a real, tangible product that makes an impact on other people’s lives.

The end goal is never actually ‘money.

Rather, it’s the experiences and freedom that money allows. And money is simply a by-product of the VALUE you create.

3. Create Exciting Experiences for your customers.

Richard has often said that “Fun is at the core of howI

like to do business..

The Virgin brand is Branson’s outlet for indulging in his passion each day.

But even more importantly, he wants that same experience for his employees, team members, and his customers.

You’ve got to pull people out of their dull, mundane lives and give them something to be excited about.

You do this by including an element of fun in EVERYTHING you do. Our real job as information marketers is to educate, inspire, and entertain.

Put your personality into everything you do – your emails, your videos, your articles, every piece of content should be branded with your personality.

This is hands-down the easiest way to stand out in any marketplace. Don’t be afraid to have fun.

Most people are bored to tears and want nothing more than to be part of something exciting even if vicariously through you.)

Tell people about your latest Super Bowl Party, your strange quirks, your addiction to American ldol, how the dog just chewed through your couch – doesn’t matter what it is – all that matters is that your REAL and that people can see that you CARE.

4. Do one thing everyday that scares you.

I’ve said many times that the biggest growth in your business lies OUTSIDE of your comfort zone.

Richard Branson is someone who is continually blasting through his comfort zone, breaking into new industries, tackling new challenges, forming strategic alliances, and stretching himself beyond what most people deem as possible.

That is the sign of a true entrepreneur someone who is continually stretching themselves to achieve the impossible.

And if you want to have massive growth in your business this year, then I challenge you to do the same.

Do one thing everyday that scares you! One thing every day that pushes you beyond your comfort zone.

This could be approaching new ]V partners, creating your first video, or doing your first webinar.

Push beyond your fears and I guarantee you’ll see exponential growth in your business this year.

Or as so eloquently said by Sir Richard Branson…

“Screw It, Let’s Do It!”
