I’m Giving Away 100 FREE Bots!!

Do You Want One?

One of the most popular things we do for people is build their Bots… Why?

… Because they make money…. a LOT of MONEY!

But if you’ve read this far, and are saying to yourself, ‘Wait, wait Billy… what the heck is a Bot?’

Well, they’re only the most EXCITING and effective marketing strategy you can use in your business right now! 

Bots use Facebook Messenger to chat to your clients… delivering your marketing message, in a customised and personalised form, straight into their Messenger inbox… all on autopilot!

We’ve created Bots for hundreds of Salons, Spas and Clinics, and have achieved over $30,000 in 24 hours from ONE single Bot! 

(Ok, that’s not the norm…. buuut, 100+ bookings from a single Bot or ten thousand dollars from a single bot, is not uncommon in our circles!)

Image result for what gif

Starting to get excited? I would be…

We use Bots for:

– Competitions
– Product Launches
– VIP Nights
– Service Information
– Client Feedback

… and so much MORE! 

The problem seems to be though, that people either don’t know how to get started with them, or don’t know how to create an effective Bot that seriously CONVERTS into sales and bookings!

People see some of the hype online, then dabble in it themselves, only to get frustrated and deflated when it doesn’t get them results! 

We have literally created over 10,000 Bots now for salons, and we know what doesn’t work…

… But most importantly, what DOES WORK!

So will all this being said, I wanted to give you the chance to try it for yourself – I want you to get RESULTS from Bots! 

So here’s the deal:

For the next 100 people to grab a ticket to my SALONGROWTHCON event this June, I’m going to GIVE you (that’s right, I said GIVE you) one free Bot build, normally valued by itself at $1,500!!

… And to make it even sweeter, if you’re one of the first 50, I’m going to also throw in a FREE Facebook Ads campaign, created by our insanely talented digital marketing team here at Coaching HQ. 

SALONGROWTHCON is going to be the biggest hair and beauty entrepreneurs event ever, and if you grab your ticket today, I’m going to GIVE you a Bot for FREE! (and maybe even a Facebook Ads campaign, if you act quick enough).

Online Is The New Black

Yesterday I had one of my coaching clients make $1,100.

Doesn’t sound like much right?

Well… what if I told you that was on DAY 1 of her online salon business… 

… after taking her business online due to the coronavirus restrictions!

Below is another one of my coaching clients who had the same result on Day 1.

The thing is, I’m speaking with a whole bunch of salon owners right now who are getting these results from taking their salon business online.

Once the restrictions were put in place, they made the decision to go online and now they’re reaping the rewards.

In their online business, they have limited wages, no electricity, no equipment servicing…

… and in some cases, NO RENT!

Basically almost all of the income is pure PROFIT!

So, I bet that $1,100 a day doesn’t seem that bad now, right?

What would you do with $5,000 – $10,000 a week PROFIT?

How would that change your life?

All you need to do is make the decision to get started. 

You can get started today by logging into my free program that I launched last week.

Yep, it’s FREE

No payment, no catch.

Just my way of saying thanks to an industry that’s given me so much and to help out business owners in a time of crisis! 

If you haven’t already got your login, click here now. 

If you have already created a login, but are yet to get started, then click here.

Make your own decision to get started today. Make a decision to secure your businesses future. 

Make a decision to be a part of the salons that thrive during these tough times.

You don’t need to be brilliant with technology, you just need to commit to implementing the program! 

Enjoy, good luck and be awesome,

Billy.

How You Make Salon Sales… Even During A Lockdown!

Billy, you must read this list, and I’m going to tell you why at the end. See if you can guess…

  • General Electric
  • IBM- General Motors
  • Disney
  • Burger King
  • Microsoft
  • CNN
  • Apple (Modern Day)
  • Hewlett Packard
  • John Deere
  • Fedex
  • International House of Pancakes
  • MTV
  • Hyatt
  • Sports Illustrated
  • Walmart

Did you get it?

Do you know what this list all have in common? 

They were ALL started in a depression or a recession!

So why do I tell you this?

Well, because like it or not, we’re about to go into one of the toughest financial periods since the Great Depression of the 1920’s.

Yep, 100 years ago was when we last felt economic pain like this.

So what are you going to do? 

If you’re staying positive, then read on. If you’re thinking negative, then read on. 

If you’re unsure… then read on!

Image result for unsure gif

I’m here to be your voice of reason, but also to be your voice of optimism and hope.

Like the old song says I’ll be your ‘little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.’

(You’re singing the song now right??) haha

The truth is, that YES, this situation sucks! 

Businesses are closing down, events are getting cancelled, people are getting laid off…

… but most importantly, people are also dying.

Whatever you’re going through right now, it feels like pain. 

It feels like there is no hope, but someone always has it worse.

The person on a ventilator right now in hospital fighting for their life, would give anything to have what most people are considering challenges right now.

I’m not denying that our challenges aren’t real, and I’m not downplaying some of the genuine concerns people have around money and their future…

But I want to keep things in perspective for one reason and one reason only…

… Because you must remain positive during this time, you must be hopeful and most importantly, you MUST be mindful enough to see the opportunities that exist during a time like this. 

Just like Disney and FedEx and Hyatt did.

Image result for disney gif

There are opportunities that exist and there ARE ways to make money, even if your business is closed. 

Hang in there long enough, and there will be a MASSIVE opportunity to make a lot of money once this storm passes.

So what do you do now?

Do you take this time to lay low, worry and pray?

Or do you take this time to prepare, plan and get ready! 

I urge you to choose the latter.

I plead with you to choose positivity! 

Negativity and worry during a time like this will lead to worry and negativity.\

Positivity will lead to abundance and success.

And just like the old Pantene ad said ‘It might not happen overnight, but it will happen.’

In this time when everybody else is on the defensive and contracting their business…

Get on the front foot. 

Get on the attack and position yourself as the industry leader. 

Make yourself known and let your clients know that you aren’t going anywhere. 

Now is the time to expand and grow! 

And speaking of growth…

I’ve just launched a way that you and your team can grow through this down time. 

It outlines exactly how you can maximise your sales through the slow down and also how to grow lighting speeds faster than your competition once the industry starts to recover.

So instead of letting all this uncertainty paralyse you, you can instead get excited by what’s to come…

… And prepare yourself for the most exciting growth period you’ve ever seen.

You can check out all the details by clicking here now.

All I will say is that this training has saved my businesses time and time again…

… and it’s allowed me to grow my new company from $0 to $2million in the first 14 months of trading. 

Keep moving forward, 

Billy Rickman.

The Power of Your Thoughts…

On average we have 75,000 thoughts per day! But here’s the even crazier part…

91% of those thoughts are exactly the same as the day before! That’s 68,250 repeated thoughts every single day.  

I assume most of you have heard of the principle, the law of attraction; that we attract what we focus on right… 

… To keep things interesting, your subconscious mind cannot differentiate between your thoughts and reality.

Crazy right!

Now, you are probably starting to understand just how powerful your thoughts are. 

I want you to take a minute or two now to think about what you usually think about. Yep, that’s right, I want you to THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT…

keep thinking!

How’d you go… and be honest, are the majority of your thoughtspositive or negative?

Ok…Now what I want you to do is focus on the life you dream of living…

… what does that life look like, what are you wearing, what kind of car are you driving, what house do you live in, where do you live, are you happy, are you laughing, how do you walk, how do others see you, what do you spend your days doing? 

The power is in the DETAILS, the more details the better. 

If our brain cannot differentiate between what is real and what isn’t AND…

If 91% of our thoughts are repeated on a daily basis AND…

If we attract what we focus on…

…then wouldn’t it be super powerful if you were INTENTIONAL with your thoughts? 

If you controlled your thoughts so they worked for you to attract the life you actually WANT to be living? 

I know my answer. 

Image result for your best life

Now, before I sign off, I am going to ask you to do me a favour…

… For the next week in the 5 minutes before you go to sleep and in the first 5 minutes of waking, take 100% control of your thoughts

ONLY think positiveabundant thoughts, picture in as much detail as possible that dream life you were picturing earlier. 

Just 5 minutes twice a day, for one week…can you do that? 

Awesome! 

I promise you, if you can commit 10 minutes a day to really controlling your thoughts, you will start to attract MASSIVE CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE. 

Happy Monday! 

Be awesome and let me know how you go.

The Dark Side of Dopamine

And How You Can Make It Your Superpower…

We have all heard of the popular neurotransmitter that everyone is talking about (including myself)…yep, you guessed it, dopamine…

…And rightfully so. This chemical means serious business! 

It makes sure we get stuff done, it focusses us on our goals and keeps us motivated and inspired! It also keeps us constantly searching for that next hit. 

So who likes to do lists…? Yeah, me too!

That satisfying feeling you get when you cross things off your list…yep you guessed it again, dopamine. 

In the right balance dopamine can be extremely beneficial to our lives, but dopamine has a dark side that most aren’t talking about…

Did you know some of the other things that release dopamine include, alcohol, sex, nicotine, gambling, and even your cell phone! 

If unbalanced, dopamine is extremely dangerous and it’s destructive

This is because dopamine is highly, highly addictive

It’s no wonder that this chemical can lead us into a false sense of achievement, going about our day creating and ticking off the items on our to do lists, constantly chasing that next hit of dopamine, but never progressing too far forward. 

Tony Robbins explains ‘most people mistake movement for achievement.’ Yep, once again, dopamine is the culprit. 

So what do we do? 

We have to SHIFT our focus and become obsessed with outcomes instead of activities

Image result for outcomes

We must be more intentional with our movements to ensure they are bringing us closer to the outcomes we desire. 

This way we can use dopamine to our advantage and not let it trick us into thinking we are progressing forward. 

So now we know how powerful dopamine really is…use dopamine as your superpower and make it your advantage over your competitors! 

Be awesome!

Why Happiness Is NOT The End Goal…

And Why You Need To Stop Chasing It!

In the wise words of Gautama Buddha…

“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have…” 

All too often, I see people so intrinsically focused on the end result, on where they so desperately want to be…

I will be happy when I earn $X amount.’  or ‘When I lose X amount of weight, then I will be happy.’

Let me preface with saying, we have all done it – myself included – but, I genuinely believe that the goal is to be exponentially happy in the present moment…NOW!

And I know what you’re thinking, ‘Billy, how can I be happy when I am struggling financially or when I am overworked and stressed out?’

stressed out GIFs Search | Find, Make & Share Gfycat GIFs

Here’s the thing…if we are continually seeking ‘happiness’ then we are coming from a place of ‘lack.’ 

We are already telling ourselves that we are NOT presently happy and we are attaching our happiness to external sources in the form world.

We need to flip that mindset on its head. Instead of lack, we must start to come from a place of abundance. 

Remember… happiness comes from within and it is a conscious choice we have to make everyday. 

So often, I hear people tell me they feel guilty about being happy because they are not yet where they want to be…

… But we need to give ourselves permission to BE happy! 

Happy Carlton GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

We can be happy AND be striving to achieve financial freedom. We can be happy AND be trying to lose weight and prioritising our health…

…These things are not mutually exclusive!

If we continually view happiness as the end goal or destination, how do we know when we have ‘made it?’

That we can now be happy…? Because there is always going to be another goal, another mountain to climb and there is always room for more self-improvement. 

Happiness is an inside job and a daily practice. There is no path to happiness, the path IS happiness…

So to everyone reading this, let’s make it our mission today to BE HAPPY, right now…irrespective of any external conditions…

Nope, no excuses!!

Are you excited?!?! ME TOO! 🙂 I mean who doesn’t want to be happy… AM I RIGHT!? 

Be awesome (and BE HAPPY)

5 Ways That Dwelling Is Killing Your Business

… and why you need to stop.

The other day, someone asked a question of whether they should call out their competitors for buying cheap products overseas when they purchase theirs locally.

The answer is that both options have pros and cons, but the number one thing you shouldn’t do is dwell on the decision

You either do it. Or you don’t. 

Dwelling on decisions and stalling on action, can be the number one thing that causes your business to stall, and here are 5 reasons why:

1. It distracts you from your bigger goals – Every business should have one or two major goals that they are trying to achieve at any given time. The major goals in your business are those that will make the biggest impact and move the needle the most. Often times, the decisions we dwell on, are not those in relation to the major goals and they are usually smaller decisions that are not overly impactful in the greater scheme of things. Dwelling on these, takes you off course, and ends up causing you to lose focus on the things that are most important. 

Image result for focus gif

2. It uses up cognitive resources – We all know that as an entrepreneur, most days you come home from the day exhausted and fatigued. Depending on your industry, it can be physically, mentally or both. The thing is, we only have a finite reserve of energy and we want to make sure that we are using our energy for the things that are serving us to reach our goals. Using mental energy to dwell on decisions is never going to benefit your productivity and it will almost certainly end up delaying your results.

3. You miss other opportunities – The Reticulator Activator System (RAS) is a bundle of nerves at our brainstem that filters out unnecessary information so the important stuff gets through. Basically, it’s the reason why when you buy a new car, all of a sudden you see the same car everywhere! The RAS is tuned into filtering out things that are important and things that aren’t. When you focus on something, the brain sees it as important and looks for other things related to that. If it’s not your focus, then the brain filters it out. When you are dwelling on decisions of the past or stuck in dwelling on a current decision, your brain is focused on that, and is missing the countless other opportunities that are passing you by on a daily basis! 

4. You lose momentum – Momentum is hard to get and easy to lose. Momentum is also the thing though, that when you do have it, it will turn you into a business superhero! For momentum to take place, it involves two ongoing steps – keep taking action and keep getting results… whether they are small or big! You cannot get, or be in momentum when you’re standing still. So whilst you’re stuck or you’re dwelling on a decision, you are in effect standing still and definitely out of momentum. 

5. The moment passes – An opportunity can sometimes be fleeting. Becoming a YouTube star when it was first launched. Executing on email marketing before it got saturated. Buying a house in an area before it booms. Opportunities come and go, but real opportunities usually don’t last long and are either taken by someone else or the market catches up. Whenever you dwell on a decision, just know that the opportunity you’re dwelling on, may just pass you by. 

Image result for passing by gif

I hope this convinces you to start making bolder and more swift decisions. You’re never going to get it right 100% of the time, but I can promise you that you will achieve more, get more gains and get closer to your goals by being a rapid and decisive action taker, instead of dwelling on your decisions. 

Be awesome,

Billy.
