If you owned a restaurant and I asked you to suggest a restaurant for me to host an event at – wouldn’t you be pissed?
Well, here’s the deal…
If you email me asking for business advice and you haven’t tried Clarity – then I’ll take it as a personal insult.
I’ve spent the last 2 years of my life investing every resource I have, building a platform that unlocks 35,000+ of the world’s smartest entrepreneurs & thought leaders and makes them available to you, anytime!
Each and everyone of you.
- No membership required
- No “filter” to pass
- No geographical restrictions
It’s open to all, unlike other organizations.
Yes the experts charge.
But 80% are $1/min.
Sure the top of the top experts are super expensive, but why call them?
Keep this in mind… no one on Clarity is taking calls unless:
a) They think they’re smart
b) They’ve been verified
c) They know that they will deliver more value then the cost
Why would they?
After the call you can leave a public review stating your experience and it’ll be indexed by Google and searchable for anyone else to see – forever and ever. Trust me, these people are great.
If they’re not, we remove them after 2 bad calls + we offer a 100% no-hassle money back guarantee.
So there’s really no risk.
So, back to your emails…
- Yes I can answer your questions
- Yes I understand that it’s scary asking a stranger for advice
- Yes I know it costs money
Why would you insult me by not trying it first?
Think about it.
Now, I’m not heartless… I know we’re friends and I still want to help – but asking me to schedule a 30 minute call and break up my workflow is a big ask when I have less time now than ever before.
It’s kind of why I built Clarity for myself in the first place.
Anyone who’s emailed me, knows that I always reply – it’s probably the Canadian in me – but the number of cold emails has outpaced my ability to do so.
That’s why anyone – willing to pay me for my time – can get on a call with me. I’m $1000/hour, only because that’s the level of commitment I need to feel to do the call (not the price I think I’m worth). There’s a difference.
It’s just a way to show me you’re serious + you really need MY advice. It also means you know that you can leverage the ideas and discussion to do more than the cost.
If that’s not true, then I’m not your guy.
So going forward, I need to ask that you stop emailing me asking me to read your business idea/plan, etc. or to get on a quick call to discuss it.
I just don’t have the time to do one-off meetings/calls etc.
If it’s super important to get face time with me, then fly/drive to where I’m at and not only is it free – the meal is on me.
Need to book time to discuss your ideas? Then it will cost, but I would first suggest you talk to one of the other 34,999 experts on Clarity first – trust me, it’s where I’ve learned everything I know – so you should too.
Just use http://clarity.fm
If you can’t afford a $30 dollar call, then email me asking for $30 dollars – I’d rather give you that. Easy peasy.
So yeah… I do love you, but it’s got to stop, cause honestly – I’d rather invest that 30 minute conversation in making Clarity even better for the other 400 Million entrepreneurs in the world who will actually use it.
It’s just a better way for me to leverage my time and TRULY help give back in the best way I know possible.
Hope that makes sense.
If you have a business and someone disrespects you by asking you for free advice, or expects to get your help at no cost – then feel free to share this post with them. It really comes down to respect for your life’s passion.
