Trust Me: This Matters… A Lot!

There was a time not so long ago, that I was so broke I couldn’t afford to put milk on my cereal.

Yep thats right, one morning I had to choose between putting milk on my son’s cereal or my own because I couldn’t afford any more milk. 

Of course I chose his, and that morning I had water on my Weet-Bix, and this story always serves to remind me of how bad things were… and how far I’ve come.

What happened at the time, was that somebody I did a business deal with, really screwed me over and left me with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt because of their failure to pay. 

I had stupidly signed an agreement as a guarantor on a contract and when they fell through, I was left with all the debt! 

The more I am in business, the more I realise these things happen, and as much as we try to control things and protect ourselves, some times we just learn lessons the hard way.

I’ve wrote about this story a few times in more detail, but the point of this blog today is not about what happened in this moment, but about what I did to come back.

One of the things Im passionate about in entrepreneurship is being a problem solver. 

In business, I’ve never met a successful person yet that didn’t have an innate ability to look at any problem in the business – no matter how big or small – and always have the mindset of ‘let’s find a way to solve it.’

I think by-in-large, this is what separates successful entrepreneurs from those that don’t make it.

I posted on my Facebook page about this last week, and it amazed me how many people reached out and told me how much it hit home!

This mentality goes for anything in business. For example, if you found your new perfect location or you need to make an extra $20,000 this month.

Successful people don’t look at opportunities or targets and say I cant make it happen… they instead look at them and say how do I make it happen?!

This mindset and this way if thinking is exactly what I had at my worst moment, when I couldn’t afford milk, and it’s what allowed me to keep going and move forward to get myself out of it.

I never once thought that I couldn’t make it happen, I just constantly kept asking the question ‘how do I make it happen.’

I kept asking it until I found a way.

If there is anything you want or need in your business right now, and you think it’s out of reach, maybe you’re just saying the wrong thing. 

Maybe you’re not asking yourself the right question.

Instead of saying you can’t make it happen, start asking yourself ‘how can I make it happen’ and I promise you, your business will start to thrive.

You can start with with this mindset straight away!

If you’re wanting to come to SALONGROWTHCON 2019 because you know how much it will benefit you and your business, but you’re saying that you can’t make it happen…

Then flip it right now and ask instead ‘how can I make it happen?’

Become a problem solver in business, and keep going until you find a way.

Be awesome,

Billy.

This Might Just Be Better Than SEX!

Did you know there’s a huge connection and link between SEX and being MOTIVATED?

It’s true…

Recently I was learning all lot about how the brain tiggers motivation, and what I learnt was fascinating!

There is a HUGE correlation between motivation, success and having a healthy body and healthy mind… 

…and it shouldn’t be underestimated!

There is a saying about motivation by Zig Ziglar that goes…

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

… But how do we become motivated and how do we keep motivated each day?

Turns out that one of the main players in staying motivated, is that neurotransmitter everybody loves to talk about called Dopamine.

Image result for dopamine gif

Dopamine has been thought of mainly in the past as the chemical responsible for pleasure, but more and more these days, there is evidence that Dopamine is actually responsible for encouraging us to act… either to achieve something good or to avoid something bad!

It simply isn’t there to just make us feel good.

Dopamine spikes for many reasons, such as foods, exercise, close relationships, but did you know that higher levels of dopamine are found in motivated and ambitious people?

This means that when you are motivated and achieving, you will have more dopamine releases and you will feel good! 

Who doesn’t want to feel good, right?

Dopamine is also the main neurotransmitter that makes men and women feel good before and after sex.

The anticipation and build up of sex triggers dopamine releases and then afterwards… well, lets just say there’s a significant increase in Dopamine there too!

Image result for nuclear bomb gif

Having sex regularly causes us to maintain higher levels of dopamine, and so too does being in a state of motivation and inspiration.

If you want to feel like you do during sex, then get motivated in your daily life!

If you are feeling flat right now, then it may be because you’re not motivated, inspired (or having enough sex… or maybe all three), so you need to do something about it to increase your dopamine levels and start to feel GREAT!

I can’t help you with the sex part, but I can help you with becoming  motivated and inspired beyond your imagination.

The event I am hosting in June this year called SALONGROWTHCON, runs for two days and has 23 speakers from the hair and beauty industry, who are the most motivational people imaginable… including the legendary Tabatha Coffey!

They have all achieved huge things, they have accomplished massive goals, they have helped so many people around the world. 

Now, they want to share their knowledge with you! They want to motivate, inspire and excite you to succeed in your business and in your life beyond anything you could have imagined.

Go here to get your tickets nowbecome HUGELY motivated and give yourself the gift of increased Dopamine in your life!

Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Be awesome,

Billy Rickman

We’re Giving Back and Helping The Kids!!

We thought long and hard about which charity to partner with for SALONGROWTHCON, and we couldn’t go past…… Bravehearts! 

Did you know that Bravehearts is Australia’s leading child protection organisation?? 

Well, they are, and this is part of the reason why we chose them to be our partner.

The thing is, nearly all of our team here at Billy Rickman Coaching are parents, and so the thought of a single child being hurt, hits really close to home for us!!

…And with 1,500 Salon Owners attending SALONGROWTHCON, we wanted to make sure we took advantage of this many people in one place, and make sure we were able to give back from the event, especially with a cause we all so strongly believe in.

I actually got the chance to meet the Bravehearts Team today and also their loving mascot, Ditto! (Click play below…)

Being loving parents ourselves, it just made sense to partner with those who are doing the most to not only fight for the children of Australia, but also educate them, so they feel like they have a voice if anything ever happened to them!

We are so proud and so excited to work alongside Bravehearts for SALONGROWTHCON, and we can’t wait to raise some fantastic awareness and money for such an incredible charity.

Thanks Bravehearts for all the amazing work that you do!

Be awesome,

Billy.

Why I Created SALONGROWTHCON… And Why YOU Need To Be There!

My Mission: To Make Hair and Beauty Salon Owners Love Business As Much As They Do Hair And Beauty!

In a little under 3 months from now, 1,500 Salon Owners will be walking through the front door of the Gold Coast Convention Centre...

But how did we get to this point?

Well, in January 2018 I started my coaching program and in the first 12 months, we got over 100 Clients join us.

With this level of growth, and influx of clients, it didn’t take me long to identify that there were certain things in the hair and beauty industry that were broken…

… specifically – business skills, knowledge and business development.

You see, I don’t think that there are many other industries that come close to the passion that people have within the hair and beauty industry.

But the problem is, that passionate hair and beauty operators do not equal successful business owners. 

Just because you can cut hair well, or you can fix every skin concern known to man, it does not mean that if you open a business, you are going to succeed!

In business, you need much more than great technical skills…

… You need to know how to market, how to sell, how to lead your team, how to train, how to motivate, how to plan, how to balance a budget

In this industry, as passionate as we are, there are many many salon owners who can’t do these things…

… and worse yet – don’t know where to start!!

So at Christmas last year I had an idea…

… What if we held an event with all the best salon coaches, all the leading industry experts, all the people who had not only talked success, but had walked it too… 

… what if all of them taught what they know and passed it on to other salon owners at this one event??

Well, this is exactly what we have done and exactly what we have put together.

SALONGROWTHCON was born to service a need – to fill a void in the industry. To teach Salon Owners not about haircuts or colours, or about facials and waxing…

… It’s to teach Salon Owners about business – and the amazing opportunities that await them if they simply make a commitment to learn more about sales and marketing and leadership!

Abundance awaits every salon owner in the world, if they shift their focus away from their trade, and move it into the world of salonpreneurship.

We have 23 of the very best speakers over two days (June 15 – 16) on the Gold Coast, and I urge you to come and attend. 

If you’re worried about money, then make a commitment to find it. We even have payment plans now, where you can pay it off for only $65 a month!

Can’t afford flights or accomodation? We have packages available for you to save on that too! 

I want you there and I want you to succeed. So come and join me, 23 other speakers and 1,500 Salon Owners for one weekend that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

If you haven’t yet got your tickets, head to https://salongrowthcon.com to get yours before they’re all gone! 

I can’t wait to see you there. So until then, be awesome,

Billy!

My Prophecy: The RISE Of Artificial Intelligence!

This blog may just freak you out!!

For the past 18 months, Ive been banging on about the power of Bots! (NO, this isn’t another Bot episode 😋)

Whenever someone tells me they don’t work, or they’re just a fad, or they don’t like them…. 

… My response is ‘what… you don’t like money?’ 🤑

But seriously, this is the truth. 

Bots make my clients more money, get more bookings and build more profitable businesses, than any other single marketing tool…. BY FAR!

And now, things just got even more serious….

Artificial Intelligence is now starting to creep into the marketing world in a BIG way, and you can now create a Bot, that not only replies to your messages and promotes your business…

… But it can LEARN to be exactly like you, talk like you, think like you, and effectively be you! 😲

What does this mean for your business? 

Well, it means that you will no longer have to spend all night replying to messages. 

Or miss a booking because you took too long to reply. 

Or not give the information to the client that they want, when they want it.

A bot is one thing, but now training it so that it learns to talk and respond exactly like you…. well that is next level! 😎

Tune in to Episode 90 of the Billy Rickman Show, as I talk about how artificial intelligence, may soon play a MAJOR part in your business success! 👊🏻

Some ways to tune in:

Here’s a few different ways to catch the episode:

What Are You Famous For?…

…It’s Not Customer Service.

You know that steakhouse that’s 45mins away, but you drive to it every time anyways because it’s the BEST!!

Or, that coffee house that you drive 15mins out of your way for every day, because NOBODY does an Espresso like they do!

How about that Mechanics that you drop your car into twice a year…

… that’s located over an hour away…

… because they are AMAZING at servicing your type of car! 

I could go on and on with more examples of where people will go out of their way for businesses that are famous for something specific…

.. and you know what else people do, other than just going out of their way?? 

They PAY MORE too! 

Yep, people will pay more and travel further to any business if they are famous for it.

So that begs the question for you and your business…

… What are YOU famous for?

Before going any further, there are 3 answers I want you to dismiss straight away because they are not the right answers…

1. Customer Service

2. Friendliness

3. Education

Why do I want you to dismiss these?

Because you have to be EXCEPTIONALLY great at these things to actually be famous for them.

A lot of business owners are kidding themselves when they say their customer service is what they’re famous for.

Remember that being famous for something has two effects:

1. Your customers travel waaaaay further than normal to visit you

2. Your customers will pay waaaaay more for your product or service.

So ask yourself again, does your customer servicefriendliness or education get your customers to do both of those things above??

If you’re being honest, then the answer is probably no…

… which means you need to think harder! 

The most successful salons I know are FAMOUS for their Balayage. 

They do it differently, more effectively, with better results, that last longer…

…and therefore people drive for miles to get it done there, and they’re willing to pay a PREMIUM!!!

… The same goes for Injectables or Needling or Functional Workouts or other specialist treatments!

So here’s what you need to know.

Businesses that are FAMOUS for something, win.

Every day, every time.

So what are you famous for? If nothing, then sit down, figure it out and find something.. 

.. and you too will win at the game of business! 

Be awesome, 

Billy.
