Well I’ve finally made Podcast 200.
And what a ride.
And how life has changed.
Thinking about getting a podcast ?
Then take a listen, and find out why it's vital for your business.
If you find that your website isn’t converting well or doing well in one the online world, then could it possibly be that your website probably sucks?
Here's the good news - if it does - you can improve it.
Now your website not working could be down to many things - such as using the wrong strategy, or you’re not putting out enough content.
So don’t be let down by it because if it’s a problem there’s always a solution.
Just because your website isn’t doing well right now, doesn’t mean that it’s going to be that way forever, especially if you do something about it.
So keep on listening and I’ll tell you what you can do about it.
What’s one thing you can control in your life?
If you are in business and you feel that your success relies heavily on circumstance and luck, then there's something wrong with your current mindset, and with that mindset, you won't be getting anywhere near progress.
In business, (or life in general) you either control it or it controls you.
Always pick the latter.
This is so important, and when you start to understand this, the whole world of possibility opens up for you.
In this life, there are many things we don't get to control such as, the weather, our family, where were born and so many things.
And there are times that we dwell so much on that, it brings us down, makes us feel hopeless and makes us believe we're stuck in a rut.
Which is why it's always a relief to be reminded that there are things we can actually control, and a little reminder goes a long way.
Marketing, I love it – but weirdly not everyone else does !
So the question is : How do you market and automate the process ?
What marketing should you be doing ?
How has marketing changed in just a few short years and what can you do about it.
Take a listen - and let me know how you're doing your marketing.
YouTube is Hot, Hot Hot right now.
In fact, studies show that people are now watching more YouTube than TV!
So if you want to get your company in front of your potential buyers, then you should be on YouTube.
The question is - how do you get an audience to view your business or brand and how do you integrate YouTube into your marketing ?
Keep listening and I’ll tell you more.
One of the things I’ve noticed in some business owners is that when talking about numbers, they sometimes don’t seem to know what they’re talking about.
And that’s how people go broke, that’s how people don’t progress in their business.
They’re not looking at the numbers correctly, or maybe they are but they’re not putting much thought into it.
In this podcast, taken from a recent Facebook live, I’m talking about a one day training held on July 24th.
It’s specifically aimed for the business doing more than £100,000 a year in revenue.
Even if you're not doing the magic £100k, knowing your numbers is vital.
Anyone venturing into the world of business knows that’s not just a walk in the park, there’s plenty of things to considering when it comes to sales, marketing, advertising and all the fun stuff.
However, there might be some instances that you see your business not making any significant progress and it’s very frustrating just to see all that hard work not paying off.
So why is that?
Maybe you’re not answering the right questions. Maybe you’re not actually asking the right questions to begin with.
In this Podcast (Taken from my Facebook Live) , I show you 3 questions that you can ask yourself and having answered those business can be the key to grow your business today.
If you want to know these questions and see growth in your business then keep on listening.
Planning your week.
I’ve heard every excuse going as why to it can’t be done.
But the best one is "I'll end up spending so much time planning I won't have any time to do the work" - and funny enough that is EXACTLY why they're not moving forward in life.
Planning isn't an option if you want to be wealthy.
Take a listen and find out why !
You can download my podcast which covers everything from business, to get started in property with very little money on my website which is at https://www.daniellatto.co.uk and don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel!
Sometimes when you’re in business, being able to see what’s really going on is virtually impossible as you’re simply too close to it.
That's why an external person who comes in (let's say a coach or a mentor for now), can see immediately what's going on and what the problem is.
But for you, it's so difficult as you're literally fighting problem after problem and trying to make the business work.
So here's 3 questions you can ask yourself that may help, Take a listen !
A little controversial this one; on both accounts !
But listen in, and you'll see why
1) it makes sense to not bother with deposits
2) why the government has made it harder for those under 25 to find a place to rent.
Take a listen !!
The reason you may not be succeeding is that it isn’t one of your habits.
I KNOW the advice is to commit 100%.
I know that.
But sometimes that adviec is just plain old wrong.
Sure - on a new venture put in 100% EFFORT.
But when it comes to investing, you need a 'SURE THING' and if you go ALL IN and spend up AND the thing goes wrong, then you have nothing left.
Take a listen.
It’s not about wasting time, it’s about the stagnant time wasted.
Yep, the problem isn't dying at 65.
It's not what we want, but you won't be around to worry about it.
The problem is living until you're 100, without the resources to do so.
Take a listen.
Let me know what you think.
I love what Oxfam do – helping other people is part of what makes us human.
(Let's just forget that Penny Lawrence, the Deputy Chief Exec earned around £100k before stepping down due to a sex scandal of her employees in Hiati, and forgetting the fact that the CEO Mark Goldring earns £122,000 per year)
Here's the source for that info :
Yep - I'm not cynical THAT much surely ?
Anyway - they release a report EVERY SINGLE YEAR that states how much wealth people have compared to others, and everyone gets to shout and jump up and down about how bad it all is.
Only that, the report, although likely accurate, uses LANGUAGE to change it's meaning.
Take a listen, and see what you think.
Trying to get started when you have no money is incredibly difficult.
But as ever, there are always solutions.
It's just that - you may not like some of them.
But if you have no choice (and all of this by the way comes down to CHOICE) then we may as well put those feelings to one side and crack on with it!
Take a list to my podcast "How to get started when you have no money" and see if there's anything in there that can get you started.
Thanks for your listening!
I would LOVE IT if you could please leave a review.
I still to this day find it amazing that people know they are working too hard, they know they are literally doing everything in their business, and yet they still refuse to outsource it.
- they won't do it as well as I can
- I'm a perfectionist, it has to be perfect
At some point, you're going to to have to let go of some of the stuff in your business.
At some point you're going to reach a point where all this time consuming stuff needs to go to a 3rd party.
The only question is when.
Do you keep going, putting in the long hours, scheduling social media, creating images, editing videos - or do you just go 'here, you do it'.
Just this last week, on behalf of clients, we created a total of
- 126 images
- 36 videos
- wrote 2250 words for 3 seperate blogs
- created 2 brand new landing pages (both of which are taking payments and client oboard)
- 2 new websites
- fixed a clients broken website
- created 17 email follow ups for their email sequence
- scheduled countless social media posts
It's literally taken a team of 5 working 40 hour weeks to produce, edit, schedule, write, post, create all that stuff.
And yet we see people still trying to do THAT themselves.
Because it saves them a few quid.
And yet they still wonder why they have no time.
They still wonder why they can't grow their business.
And they still wonder why they're so damn exhausted all the time.
It's not even like what we do is rocket science (ok some of it is a bit like rocket science) - but mostly, it's just time consuming stuff.
Could you get your 15 year old neighbour to do it ?
Sure - if you want a 15 year old writing for your business and presenting it online for the world to see, and you have the time to train them up.
Or you can use us, where we have specific people for specific jobs, who just do that one thing for our clients.
If you want to try and outsource it - then take a look - £250 a month will get you all of the above and more
Or you can save yourself £250 a month, and keep doing all this time consuming stuff that gets few results.
The key in social media, is who can get noticed.
Social media isn't event the right name for it.
It should be called 'who can stand out the most in a sea of noise' - but that doesn't sound as exciting somehow.
Up your game, and get more content produced for you and stand out.
So what do you think – did JP Morgan come out and say Bitcoin was over, drop the price on it, and then come out buying ?
Of course they bloody did.
Banks definitely have NOT got your best interests at heart.
But we need them.
Hope you enjoy this podcast, taken from one of my videos down at my favourite coffee shops here in Spain.
I see it all the time; people would rather look good than have financial freedom.
Yep, I know it's controversial (That is so unlike me I know), but there you go.
An enjoyable rant about getting things done in the right order!
A big thankyou to Mike Woods (Property Coach) and previous client of mine for the image of HIS Ferrari - a man who was financially free before he bought his toys and did it the right way round.
It’s True !
I ended up on a 5 Million Euro Yacht at the Cannes yacht Festival.
The Yacht is available by the way, if you have a spare 5 Million Euros and you want the ultimate in boys toys.
I have to say it's a beautiful Yacht - and you can speak with Cornelius if you would like to view it at http://www.breezeyachting.swiss/
TELL HIM I SENT YOU OF COURSE!
So - find out what I was doing on there, and how it all happened by listening to the podcast !
So during a recent chat on Facebook, I was talking to a nice guy, but whose business had taken over his life.
So during a recent chat on Facebook, I was talking to a nice guy, but whose business had taken over his life.
His revenues were UP, but profits were DOWN.
Stress was UP, but time with family was DOWN.
Sometimes more turnover/revenues is not the answer.
Less money. More profit.
I know, it sounds all a bit 'Jerry Maguire' doesn't it (Have you seen that film yet?)
Anyway, take a listen, and let me know what you think.
Our emotions control how we react to almost everything that happens to us.
Some reactions take place before our emotions are allowed to kick in of course (fight or flight response) but when that initial danger is over, our emotions are whats left to put together how we feel about things.
Sometimes though, our mind forces us to choose perhaps the wrong emotion.
And that emotion can stay with us for quite some time, and we even give them labels like 'depression'.
This podcast will talk about how you can choose which emotions you want to feel, how to move you out of a negative emotion and into a much more positive emotion.
It's a pretty cool technique and anyone can do it.
Take a listen.

Dan talks about why it’s not just about the Hustle.
Thou shall have thy own hustle
Hustle is a word used to describe constant movement, it's what they use to describe the work they do in a busy fashion. In a sense, it's a positive and productive term. It produces progress and wealth, career-wise.
However, should life be all about hustling?
I think not.
When you focus on someone else’s business, you’re presenting yourself to a risk that you have ZERO control about.
It’s very common for people to lend a hand on a business for benefits and there’s nothing wrong with helping someone out, however, some people put so much focus on other people’s businesses when they really should be putting the focus on themselves.
Worst case scenario: you've put your all into a business that isn't your own, a business you have no complete control over, and then you run the risk of receiving less rather than gaining more.
If you can put so much effort in a brand that isn't yours, imagine the effort you'll exert in something you can call your own.
Also, you miss the opportunity, struggle and triumph of being your own company because you may fail but at least it's yours to rise back up.
A person can be brand, you can have credibility and thus the benefits will come forward – that is reason enough on why you should be focusing on you as a brand.
Benefits may include so much more than what working for a business offers and of course there’s the possibility of a downfall and you don’t want to go down with it.
Keep watching and I’ll tell you more about it.
Read the title, again and again, until it becomes a part of your mindset.
It’s about time we talk about time because time goes on fast, doesn’t it? One day you’re in high school, the next you’re waking up to get to work.
And as we grow, it seems as if time speeds up for us and who knows how much time left we actually have.
That’s why I say, there’s no time to waste.
You could be 50, you’re broke and looking back wishing you hadn’t spent a lot of time playing video games and spent it looking for a better job. Which leads to regret and that’s a really heavy burden to carry, you don’t wanna live with regret.
A wasted time is a time that doesn’t provide your life progress.
This is a wake up call.
In this video, I’ll show you what it means you can rock your week and how you can reap its benefits.
Mondays have always had a dreadful stigma around it – the start of a week, weekends over, back to work, the same vicious cycle. Letting such mindset get in your head gives you can affect your performance the rest of the week. Then you’ll be groggy, unmotivated, unproductive and tired.
But it doesn’t always have to be that way!
Your week is what your life consists of, and rocking your week means making the best out of your time and life. No one wants wasted and idle time.
Also, you’d be surprised what productivity and motivation in a week can do for your success and financial stability.
