Hack Culture Needs to Die

Anybody else tired of “hack” culture?

  • “7 Hacks to Triple Your…”
  • “A Secret Hack to Instantly Double Your…”
  • “52 Little-Known Hacks to…”

I asked my little brother this the other day:

“How many ‘8 tips…’ type blog posts or videos have you read or watched in your life?”

His response: 1000s.

Then I asked: “How many of those ‘7 Steps’ were actually seven steps and worked how you were told they would?”

His response: Very few.

Sound just a teensy-weensy bit familiar?

Business is like diet and exercise to me. The “secret” to getting healthy isn’t some “ultra-secksy” secret, at all. Eat right. Exercise. Drink water. Get sleep.

It’s not rocket surgery.

It just takes discipline — discipline we often don’t have so we try to hack our way around it. Even worse, we get addicted to the “high” we get from hearing a new, exciting hack and imagining it will actually work.

Knowing, deep down, it probably won’t.

It’s no way to get healthy.

And, it’s no way to run a business.

I’ll admit that I don’t know everything there is to know about being a successful business owner. Lord knows, I’ve had my share of failures and setbacks.

But, I DO know…

The breakthroughs I’ve had were NEVER a result of “one weird trick”. Feel free to burn me at the stake for that heresy, but it’s the damn truth.

That said, that doesn’t mean information isn’t valuable.

Everything I’ve accomplished in my life has been a result of information — the majority of it found online through an article, video or course. It’s a question of seeking out gimmicks that pretend they’ll “instantly make your life amazing”…

Or, core principles that take effort and discipline…

But actually work.

  • No matter the context.
  • No matter the environment.
  • No matter how the world changes.

Like mountains standing strong and immovable as the hurricanes and tornadoes swirl around them — destroying everything else in their path. When you focus on core principles, you gain a deeper sense of confidence…

And peace of mind.

You don’t worry about all the hoopla…

And “creative destruction” around you.

You’re the mountain.

In any case, that’s the “deal” with my 5-Figure Formula course. It might *sound* like a bunch of “hacks” — but, it’s not. It’s core principles that when applied to how you craft your service OFFER, significantly increase its *perceived* value.

Which lets you charge significantly more.

OR, only raise your prices slightly and get WAY more clients.

But, fair warning…

If you’re looking for the latest and greatest “ninja hack”, this ain’t for you, poncho. You will be sorely disappointed. Run as far away from this course (and me) as you possibly can.

But, if you’re tired of worrying where your next clients are gonna come from.

And, if you’re gonna “make it” this month.

And, you’re ready to WORK.
