He has been an adviser to the White House since the 90's, worked on President Obama's senate and presidential campaigns, is Joe Biden's Chief of Staff, helps Hillary Clinton prepare for debates, and was made fun of on SNL, and now Ron Klain is helping entrepreneurs. Hear about it on today's Nice Guys podcast.

 

So much to tell about Ron:

- Obama's fix-it Man     

- Joe Biden's Chief of Staff     

- Adviser to the White House since the 90's     

- The U.S.'s First Ebola Czar (He was even made fun of on SNL)     

- General Counsel for former AOL chairman Steve Case     

- Currently helping Hillary Clinton prepare for her presidential debates     

- Part of the team at Revolution LLC, a company helping entrepreneurs change the world.

 

Talk about keeping a lot of balls in the air! Here's some of his advice for keeping it all in balance:

 

-Surround yourself with good people.     

- See the potential in new people and help them however you can.     

- Weave people together within your network.     

- His kids are sometimes embarrassed by the time he spends on Facebook networking.     

- Know what you want to say "yes" to.     

- Have a long term view.     

- Do what you love. You may fail, but learn from that and do better next time.

A follow-up conversation with entrepreneur and author Tim Fargo, creator of the Tweet Jukebox about his new venture The Extraordinary Network.

 

Tim has over 190k Twitter followers, he built and sold a successful business for $20 million dollars

 

  • Tim believes that the only way to be successful is to help others.
  • On Twitter- Created or curated content is OK, just make sure your content is compelling.
  • Stay consistent to your theme.
  • Start off doing your own customer service.
  • Many big companies feel they have a marketing problem, but really they have an execution problem. If they would treat their customers better, they wouldn't have to work so hard to get new ones.
  • A customer who shows up for price, will also leave for price.
  • If you want to start a business, get a job in the industry first. You will be more successful if you learn about a business from the inside before  you try to do it yourself.
  • Don't open a restaurant just because you like to eat food. Running a restaurant is different from being passionate about eating.
  • #1 advice for starting a business- KEEP YOUR OVERHEAD LOW.

Jason Hartman wants to save the middle class from Wall Street. He is a real estate and branding expert, author, podcaster, and has interviewed over 500 expert guests including Presidential candidates Dr. Ben Carson and Mark Everson

 

Here's a little more about Jason:

 

  • Jason attended his first real estate seminar at 16

 

  • He became a real estate agent at 19

 

  • He has produced over 3000 episodes of 20 different podcasts

 

And some things we learned from him:

 

  • Jason doesn’t believe in traditional networking.

 

  • People don’t have relationships with logos, they have relationships with people, that's why you need to brand yourself.

 

  • If you don't believe in something, you will fall for anything.

 

  • Don't worry about people who don't like and/or agree with you. That just means you're doing something right.

 

  • Wall Street is the modern version of organized crime.

 

  • Work on being #1 with a small group, not #2 for a large group.

 

  • He recently launched new podcasts - The Longevity Show; and a new business - The Veritas News Network

Strickland is the solo Nice Guy today talking about the fastest road to learning and growing your business.

 

Doug is dead. He picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. Seriously though, Doug is in Kansas City doing a speaking gig, but he forgot to bring a mic so he's dead to me and I'm going it alone. 

Sincerely,

-Strickland

       

Call to action-  I want to send you alcohol. But only the first 3 listeners who do the following:

Signature advice- ABC- Always Be Closing, that's important, but it's also Important to Always Be Learning.

      

Don't ever be "The smartest guy in the room." Great ideas can come from anywhere. (WWE CO Vince McMahon weekly meeting)
