🥊 Kicking it back about 2 years to our interview with Martin Gillitt from Agoura Boxing. 🥊

https://conejovalleyadvicegivers.com/episode-053/

Martin arrived in California from England working in construction. But, he had a love for Boxing.

So much so he decided to dedicate his time and effort into building a boxing gym here in the Conejo Valley CA. Years ago he started just that in Thousand Oaks, later moving to Agoura Hills under the name Agoura Boxing Gym.

Martin has become a mentor to some of the younger folks in the gym, skills people on nutrition and help his clients with an incredible work out that builds confidence and future building ‼️

In the gym, you can also find Jiu-Jitsu programs and a young kid program called Little Monsters.

💯 Amazing life, mindset and confidence training! 💯

Episode 028: Authenticity Rules The New World | Being Real | Spotting the Fakes | Conejo Valley Teacher Only Program | Olympians are as Real as it Gets | Real Estate Agents Fake Tactics - The Conejo Podcast

If you are not Authentic in your life and business, no one will want to hang out with you!

This episode first aired August of 2016 and I received the following reactions (and loved everyone one of them):

> 47 Emails agreeing with the message.
> 11 Emails hating me for what I said. (hehe)
> 18 Facebook direct messages of individual stories from peoples lives.

What struck me the most, was how the authenticity talk here triggered a lot of people to simply THINK.

To think about who they are. Why they do or don't share their lives, passions, likes and dislikes with the world.

I learned so much from this show and all of the messages. I still take it all with me every day.

It's been almost 2 years since we sat down and heard from Dana Aghassi to learn about her amazing passion at We Rock The Spectrum Gym.

This is a gym for all kids to play, socialize and move their bodies without being judged because they behave differently, have special needs, and special challenges.

Their MOTTO: “Finally a place where you never have to say you are sorry.”

I'm always blown away by people that think and work so far outside their own skin to better others.

Linda Kneidinger is really amazing. And so nice to listen to.

She has found a really useful and needed niche in the personal coaching arena.

Linda shows us how we tell ourselves stories and form our life and habits around that.

Sometimes those stories are the culprit that's holding you back. The stories that don't deliver a good result for you. The lies we tell ourselves.

Linda looks at all of that, combing not only life and work, but bringing in a very important third component of body. Looking at health and fitness habits and how those relate.

🎤 🎤 You owe it to yourself to give this short episode with Linda a listen:

I love to cook. I am probably a 2 out of 10 when it comes to quality, but I still love to cook.

But, when I stepped into the restaurant 101 North Eatery & Bar in Westlake Village for the first time, it blew my socks off.

This was whole other level of cooking.

🎙️(http://conejovalley.localadvicegivers.com/episode-133) 🎙️

The quality of ingredients. The care taken on each inch of the plate.

The scale of quality cooking on my little best out of 10 scale moved to a best out of 100 scale.

And Michelin Star Chef Anthony Alaimo and co-owner Jeff Helfer are 150 out of 100!

You can taste the extraordinary freshness of the ingredients, the cocktails, every morsel of this place.

I’ve personally been here many times now and I can honestly say, being able to “devour” this menu is something extraordinary and a blessing for our community.

🔥 Breaking News 🔥

They are also expanding at this location to bring the community a place for parties, banquets, small plates and a place to hang out after dinner.

Listening to Felicia Blanco Searcy talk about personal transformation made me want to be so much more than what I am today.

http://conejovalley.localadvicegivers.com/episode-132/

I love myself. I love what I'm doing.

But there is so much more that is burning inside me.

Do you ever have that burning desire?

Felicia's answer to my comment above was to fan that flame until that desire is burning red hot, because only when that happens can we make the change we want in this world.

She is so awesome.

I feel better just having met her.

🕵️ 🕵️ How To Focus Like Warren Buffett 🕵️ 🕵️

I could get so much stuff done, and at a much higher level, if I could focus 100% on what I was doing.

Some people wear multi-tasking as a badge of honor. But I've read some of the science behind it, and scientists found our brains can't give 100% to each thing at the same time.

The Conejo Podcast® started as an idea...

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

1 —WE BELIEVE IF YOU CAN'T TRUST THE PERSON,THEN YOU CAN'T TRUST HIS WORK.

Here is the truth. Trust is a function of “getting to know” someone. What is their story? Why did they choose the career path they chose? What drives them? What motivates them? What is their philosophical viewpoint? Does it align with yours? Do they have a family? Have they experienced tragedy? Adversity? Have they bounced back? When put into a difficult situation, how do they respond?… These are the kinds of question that can only be answered, by having a conversation with someone. This is why The Conejo Podcast® is a Podcast dedicated to interviewing local experts. There are no reviews or ratings. Only stories. Only conversations. And you’re welcome to listen in, to find that next professional you may hire. The idea, frankly, of hiring someone, when you’re in need of critical advice, from an ad or marketing piece, is ludicrous. As the saying goes, “truth in advertising.” HA!… Truth lives in stories, real, authentic, stories… Only by hearing someone’s voice, and understanding their thought-process, can you truly come to trust that person.

2 — WE BELIEVE RELATIONSHIPS, ACTUALLY GETTING TO KNOW SOMEONE,IS MORE POWERFUL THAN A GOOGLE OR YELP REVIEW.

Let’s face it. Aren’t most review sites bombarded with fake and fraudulent reviews, or reviews, written by people who tend to over-exaggerate or under-exaggerate their true experience. How can the same establishment, for example, have so many 5-star reviews and 1-star reviews, at the same time? Time Magazine recently published an article titled, “9 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Trust Online Reviews." But this just gets to the bigger point, accurately expressed by entrepreneur and angel investor, Peter Shankman, who wrote, “A business model [i.e. online review sites] that allow anyone to review, at any time, with no structure or background is a flawed model. There’s no reason for me to trust anyone I don’t know. It’s the INTERNET, for the love of God. Why should I?” He has a point doesn’t he? “Why do people allow themselves to be influenced by complete strangers?” I suppose when the decision is trivial, like which restaurant to eat at, then it’s no big deal. There is little at stake. But... when it comes to getting real advice, for an important decision… Really? You’re going to trust a stranger? We believe, bluntly, there is a better way. To first, hear that person’s story …

3—WE BELIEVE THE CONSUMER IS TOO SMART TO BE FOOLED.AND EVEN THOUGH SOME AREN'T, THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO BE MISLED.

You don’t really think these review sites are “objective” do you? Of course not. You are too smart. The reality is, many of these sites allow businesses and service-providers to “pay for” top rankings. Take Angies’ List for example, according to Consumer Reports, “Angie’s List misleads consumers by prominently promising that “businesses don’t pay” and that it’s a consumer-driven service supported by membership fees. But almost 70 percent of the company’s revenues come from advertising purchased by the service providers being rated.” Huh? But the real kicker is that Angies’ List then charges consumers a “membership fee” for the privilege to view their skewed and misleading ratings. Or take Google + whose reviews have also been called into question… because businesses can reach out to customers who’ve posted bad reviews, and beg, bribe, make amends, or otherwise convince the aggrieved to change or delete their original opinion. “This can skew the ratings positively,” states Consumer Reports. That being said, we believe the public deserves better. The consumer is not stupid and he shouldn’t be treated as such. This kind of “false objectivity,” many online review sites are guilty of, speaks to the character of their site.

4—WE BELIEVE TRUST CAN'T BE BOUGHT. IT MUST BE EARNED.

Unlike other sites, we never sell out. If someone is on this podcast, interviewed, it is because he or she earned it. It is because they are smart. Intelligent. Have contrarian beliefs and views, and thus, something to offer—a different perspective. Or they have a long, celebrated track record of delivering their customers, clients or patients superior results. Unlike popular “review sites,” which are big Wall Street businesses disguised as consumer-sites, we are not. We have no shareholders to appease or to keep happy. Our trust. Our integrity, cannot be bought.

On The Conejo Podcast®, those featured, are the experts that we believe will have the greatest impact. And be of the greatest service, to Conejo Valley residents. And, we are committed to helping these folks impact more lives, through spreading their stories…

BECOMING A SOMEONE:

1—CREATE A REPUTATION THAT SERVES YOU: Warren Buffett has a quote about reputation. It conveys the importance, the role of reputation plays in business. “If you cost me money, I will forgive you. If you cost me my reputation, I will be ruthless.” He did not say, “Mad, angry” or “unforgiving.” He said “ruthless.” Why? Because reputation, in business, is everything. Reputation is an unspoken language. In its purest and most powerful form, it’s a language based entirely on sight and beliefs. It dictates how people perceive you. By your stereotype you get judged (just think how politicians are perceived—can they be trusted?) In other words, your reputation precedes you. It’s how others judge you, BEFORE they know you. Whether or not you can be trusted, depends on your reputation too. It dictates your power, your influence, your authority. Even to the degree others respect you. This is why building a reputation that serves you is so important.

2—PUBLISH OR PERISH—CREATING AUTHORITY REPUTATION: First, what is Authority? There is a misconception about this term. It is often thrown around casually. The dictionary definition though, is instructive: 1. The power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience. 2. A person or organization having power or control in a particular sphere. In other words, the ability to be perceived as Donald Trump, as he is perceived on Celebrity Apprentice. Or Warren Buffett in the financial world. You are the almighty. The supreme voice. What you say is believed. What you say is enforced. What you say is gospel and is passed around as fact, in regards to your area of expertise, simply because you are the one who said it. How is this dominant reputation created? Because reputation is an unspoken language. It is not created through “talk,” or 1-to-1 presentations. It is created by symbols: A book. Authors are judged as authorities. Articles. Columnists are judged as authorities. Expert interviews. People who are interviewed, because of thier knowledge on a topic, are as judged as authorities. The overarching theme here: Publish. True authorities, as perceived by the public, publish content. They convert their knowledge and expertise into some kind of documented work. Something that is tangible. A book. An article. An interview. Those, sadly, who refuse to understand the importance of this word, publish, too often, perish. Or at least have to hustle, harder, for a lot less result than they should get, from every output of energy they put into their business.

3—LEVERAGE: THE BIG PICTURE! Okay, we agree. Publishing is important. Reputation is important. Authority is important. So, you decide to be interviewed, now what? Without leverage, your interview may as well have never happened. Like a radio ad, without leverage, your interview will be here today, gone tomorrow. Leverage is about keeping that interview alive, in front of people, [preferably, ideal prospects and clients or patients] to get maximum mileage out of your appearance. An expert interview, at its core, magnifies credibility. The mere fact that someone wants to interview you conveys your position as an expert. And each interview you do, whether it be USA Today, WSJ, CNN, on a local radio station, blog or newspaper, or on a podcast, is a building block for credibility. And my favorite, a promotional opportunity.

LEVERAGE: LONG TERM

ENGAGING CONTENT BUILDS YOUR DATABASE: We are big fans of converting Interviews into content that can (a) multiply us, so we can be in many places at once, and (b) position ourselves as a solution to a known problem. For example, prior to your Interview, thought should be given to the topic itself. Imagine for a second that you’re a chiropractor. Maybe you specialize in helping patients eliminate back pain. And maybe you have 7 methods for helping chronic back pain suffers. During the interview, these 7 methods are what we would talk about, “7 Unconventional Ways to Eliminate Back Pain That No Medical Doctor Will Ever Tell You About.” Then, post-Interview, a copy of that recording can be sent to a transcriptionist. This now gives you a written document, which can be converted into a Free Report or Whitepaper. This is content that can be used for lead generation i.e. direct-response marketing. By creating a Free Report, from the transcript of your interview or a Free CD, from the mp3 recording, you now have valuable information that can be offered to prospective clients, in exchange for their contact information. This is what builds your prospective client, customer, patient database. It also offers a pressure-free way to introduce a prospective client to your knowledge and expertise. And now, from a trust perspective, because you have a way to communicate without forcing interested prospects to contact you, directly, you don’t have to try to “close” on the first meeting or appointment. You can follow-up with more content, more case studies, etc.. from your previous clients or you're able to reach out to them in the future, to answer any questions they may have. Simplified, the process looks like this: The Interview gets recorded = Free Content/Report/Articles/CD that can marketed to prospective clients, and given away for free in exchange for contact information = Lead generation = The ability to follow-up with more valuable content, that further positions you as the Authority = Higher conversion rates from prospect to client, customer or patient.

YOUR COMMUNITY MUST BE FED: Here is a business lesson we learned from a rich man, “Amateurs focus on sales. Pros focus on relationships.” Duh! Of course, right? But if it’s so obvious and common sense, why do most business owner not make it a priority to feed their audience, more often, with great content. What if your favorite sitcom or drama series only produced 1 new episode a year? Would you ever truly get to know the characters? How could you become invested in the plot or storyline? Think about Friends, which ran for 10 years. In season 1, episode 1, nobody knew who Rachel Green was, and Jennifer Aniston was a virtual no one. Ten years later though, fans of Rachel, those who connected with her—from 10 seasons of content, 23 episodes per season—chose to style their hair like Rachel, and dressed the same way as she did on the show. And Jennifer Aniston, she became America’s sweetheart, and one of the highest paid actresses in the world. Why? How? Because people fell in love with her character. From a conceptual standpoint, Jennifer Aniston is no different than you. She has a craft. You have a craft. Your craft is different than hers. But the outcome is the same. To grow and enjoy a large audience for your craft…to have real fans, and to build a real community around your knowledge and expertise, then you must commit to feeding that audience with consistent content. Thought-leaders have audiences and communities and fans around their work, that buy their books, hire them, etc. But to be a thought-leader, in your industry, to your community of clients, customers, patients—by definition—you must lead with thought… Every interview you do, every blog post or article you write, every book you publish, should be seen as an episode of your “sitcom,” and opportunity to grow and feed your fan base. Even if you’re just a landscaper, I don’t see it that way, but why can’t you be the Ed Hume of Conejo Valley? — Ed was just a guy who loved gardening, who shared his knowledge and expertise, which built him a fan base, which he parlayed into a lucrative career as the go-to Authority on gardening. This opportunity to enjoy a fan base is available to every business owner, in every industry. He just needs more content, more “episodes”, to feed his growing audience.

MEDIA BEGETS MORE MEDIA: P.T. Barnum famously said, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.” Barnum was perhaps the most successful PR person in history. Why? Because he understood what Oscar Wilde understood, enunciated in this quote, “The only thing worse than being talked about [in a controversial nature] is not being talked about.” Said different. If you are not being talked about or interviewed, and if there isn’t demand for your thoughts, opinions, and commentary—then, from an importance standpoint—you don’t exist. And, as Robert Greene eludes to his his book, The 48 Laws of Power, for the man who seeks power and influence, nothing is worse than being ignored. This reveals the truth about getting media exposure for your business. Particularly, appearing on larger media outlets with larger and larger audiences. These content programmers, they want to know you’ll be able to deliver. It’s about ratings! This means the host of the program, or the program’s producer, will typically want a history of your past media appearances, and if you have it, audio or video examples from those interviews. Putting an unknown person “on air,” from their perspective is a risk. You may be smart. You may be the most qualified expert in town. But they need to know what they are getting. So, the more interviews you have to demonstrate your ability to deliver great content, the more attractive you can make yourself in future press releases. For future media appearances. For bigger and bigger media outlets. Media experts, like Ryan Holiday, author of Trust Me I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator, call this process—media begets more media—the “self-reinforcing news wave.”And, I don’t need to tell you how publicity can impact a business. One Interview is great. But one after another—because there is growing demand for your story, your knowledge and expertise, and because people want to hear what you have to say—is better. Who knows? Your Interview on The Conejo Podcast® may just be a stepping-stone to something even larger.

CHANCE TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC: Let’s face it. In this day and age, who can you trust? How many providers in your industry, in one way or another, to your frustration, mislead the public? “Truth in advertising.” HA!… Business is cutthroat and competition is fierce, and it seems more and more business owners, sales professionals and entrepreneurs are willing to cut corners, or bend the “truth” if needed, to out-compete competitors. And the consumer? Well, he often gets the short end of the proverbial stick. On The Conejo Podcast®, we're not just interested in interviewing the brightest experts in Conejo Valley, we also want to interview the most ethical. Do you have a message that people need to hear? Can you help protect the public, by debunking myths or by empowering them, with your advice? We see The Conejo Podcast® becoming the most trusted source of consumer advice in Conejo Valley. When someone needs someone they can trust, we want them to come our website. Tune-in to our Podcast. And we want them to find you. Your interview. To hear your story and expert advice....
