Transcript of this episode:
Hey tribe, welcome to The Big Vision Show. Hey, I’m Max Simon, the host of The Big Vision Show and this is all about taking your big vision business and turning it into a living, breathing reality right now…which means getting your ideas into action.
The question today comes from Sean, what up Sean? Fist bump—yeah. He says he’s a product and service creating monster. You’re a monster? That’s kind of scary, Sean. “But I’m not marketing. So should I keep creating more content, or should I start marketing?”
So, correct me if I’m wrong, Sean, but what I think you’re really saying is, “I love to create things that help people, but I have trouble selling them and how do I move beyond my own fears and doubts and frustrations to start making money with this knowledge?” Huh, am I right?
So here’s the thing…almost everybody has that program or that product or that thing that they’re just working on and working on and creating because they just need to get it right.
The thing is, you can keep working on that thing until the cows come home—what does that even mean, the cows coming home? Like, where did that saying come from? I don’t want cows coming to my house, I’m a freaking vegetarian.
But, what’s really happening here is your fears of marketing and selling are getting in the way of you getting that product out into the world and keep you perfecting and perfecting and perfecting.
The Big Vision Idea is, learn to love marketing like you love your mission. Let me say that again, learn to love marketing like you love your mission. Marketing and selling is really nothing more than getting very creative with the way to share your message and your mission with other people and inspire them to invest and be bigger than their own fears.
So to make this simple on you, here are three big vision steps to get you rolling. Step one—become a recovered perfectionist, which means to stop believing that if you put just a little more work or a little more energy into creating that one extra thing, that it’s actually going to be that much better.
Instead, just get it done so that you can get it out into the world. Do it again. It’s to become a recovered….one more time. It’s to become a recovered perfect….Seriously? I have to do this again?
Because, here’s the other truth—the majority of things that you think are wrong or not ready yet, nobody else is going to pay nearly as close of attention to it as you are. They’re going to think it’s amazing.
Step two is going to surprise you a little. It’s to start having big conversations with people in your tribe right away. What you need to understand about marketing and selling is that it’s just about having conversations.
And the thing is most people are stuck behind their computer, just talking to a computer screen and that’s not when you really connect with people and inspire them to invest in your stuff.
In fact, my friend Eben Pagan said if there was one thing that he would suggest you do every day to grow your business, it was to talk to your potential clients every single day.
Because the truth is the more conversations you have with people, the easier it is for you to see what their problems are, what their challenges are, what their true desires are, and then you can create really compelling words and programs that strike the perfect chord with them.
And the third step is to realize that your information can’t help anybody if it’s stuck in your head. Ouch, that one should really hurt. So realize if you really, really, really want to start helping people, you actually have to start engaging and talking to them and getting out of your own little bubble—because that’s when you’ll feel that passion and fire to really get out there are market and offer your programs.
So the bottom line here is that it’s definitely time to start marketing and having these powerful conversations because that will get it out of your head, and out of your room, and into the world in a powerful way.

What’s up, tribe? Welcome to The Big Vision Show. My name is Max Simon and this show is all about you taking your big vision and turning it into a living, breathing reality right now…which means it’s time to get out of your own way and get yourself into action.
Today’s question comes from Jacklyn, hi Jacklyn! And she asks, “How do you go from free—like giving away free advice—to getting paid for giving away that advice?”
It’s a great question because it happens all the time. You know, it’s like—somebody asks for help, and you give it to them. And somebody else asks for help, and you give it to them. And the landlord comes to ask for rent, and you just don’t got it.
Or maybe you’re talking to that person and you know you can help them, but you can’t quite muster up the energy to invite them to invest in what you do.
So I know I want you to know, Jacklyn, this is a humungous wide spread problem that a lot of people deal with, so you’re not alone. Here you go buddy, I didn’t ask to get paid today, so all you get is one little morsel.
But there are some very simple ways that you can overcome this nasty little insecurity bug that prevents you from asking for and getting what you’re really worth.
The Big Vision Idea is people listen to free, but they take action when they invest. So here’s the deal, there’s so much free information—free advice out there—kind of like I’m doing right now….am I doing that right now?
People are always willing to like pay attention to it…hello? Anybody paying attention out there in free land? Have you ever noticed that people don’t do much with that free information? Heck, you probably don’t do much with that free information.
So there’s three things that you can do. Number one—realize that the commitment creates the transformation. See, here’s the thing—the moment somebody invests in your programs or your services, they are now declaring that they are committed to getting the outcome and experience that transformation themselves.
Because the truth is, you can’t do the work for them. You can only guide them in the right direction. So when you stand for them making an investment in their transformation, you’re essentially standing for them making a commitment to the outcome that they most want to achieve.
Number two—understand the cost of inaction. So when somebody doesn’t invest in your product, program, or service, really get what happens to their life as a result of not getting that help. So if you help people grow their business, what happens if they don’t?
They have struggle to pay their bills, they can’t afford to go on vacations with their family, they feel like they can’t get their purpose out in the world. And the cost of that should hurt you as much as it hurts them…which will give you that motivation and that fuel to really stand for people, making an investment in their own transformation.
So the third way to move away from free into paid is to begin having these enrollment conversations right away. Start talking to people about money, start talking to people about investing in your programs—because in the beginning, it is most certainly challenging.
But like anything, the more frequently you talk to people about investing in your programs and services, the easier and easier it gets. Hey, buy my stuff! So, stop pushing it to the side, stop postponing and start having those dialogues right now.
So thanks for watching—this is the second edition of The Big Vision Show. I hope you loved it. And if you do, share it on Facebook or Twitter, or send it to all your friends—and realize that you could be on the next Big Vision show. So all you have to do is submit your question right below here and if chosen, we’ll feature you and give you your big vision answers.
So remember, your big vision is possible. You just need to stop waiting, stop wishing, and get your ass into action. I’ll see you on the next show. Much love.

Transcript of this episode:
What’s up, tribe? Welcome to The Big Vision Show.
I’m your host, Max Simon, and this show is all about taking your big vision and turning it into a living, breathing reality now.
So basically, what that means, is taking you out of the idea zone and into the action zone.
So this is our first show—YAY!!—which means that in order for this to be absolutely amazing, we need your support. We need you to watch the whole thing, spread it around to your friends, leave your comments or questions…let us know you like it, okay?
So here’s how it’s going to work. We need you to submit your questions, we’ll give you killer answers and we’ll get this party started right.
Today’s question comes from Kelly, hi Kelly! And she says, “How do you get over entrepreneurial ADD and fully commit to your business?”
So you might have heard this question and think, “That’s not me!” Let me give you a few examples. If you have that business card where it’s like, you’re an actor, and a raw foodist, selling soap, and in an MLM, and a healer, and a dancer, and you’re starting your own business, and also a cartoonist….that’s a good sign that you have ADD too.
But seriously though, everybody has entrepreneurial ADD, myself included. So, just know Kelly, you are totally not alone here. Oh, excuse me for a minute Kelly, oh a new app! What was your question?
So here’s the Big Idea. You have to focus on what’s most important now. Because look, here’s the problem…there are a million different things you could focus on in your business. You could put up a website, do a teleseminar, host a webinar, put on a live event, do a partnership, go for a walk, I don’t know…there’s a million things you could do.
So let me tell you the three things I do when I’m feeling like there’s too many options and I just need to focus.
The first step is to get clear on your why. Here’s the thing—I’ll bet you started your business for a purpose, you know, you wanted to help others, you want to see your big vision come into fruition. But somewhere along the way with all the hustle and bustle and the marketing and the money, that purpose gets pushed to the wayside.
I always come back to what’s most important. Like, why am I doing this business? To really impact other people because I’m on a mission to transform the world, and because doing these things helps provide an incredible lifestyle for me and my family. Keeping that in the forefront of my mind gives me the real purpose and the passion to move through tough times.
Step number two—start making big decisions fast. See here’s the thing, so many entrepreneurs get caught up in indecision, do I do this, do I do that, is this the right thing to do? And they never get into big, bold action.
So every time I’m faced with overwhelm, I literally ask myself the question, “What’s the next big decision I can make instantly, so I can get myself in motion?” Because the quicker I get into action, the faster I figure it out.
The third point is to ask yourself the question, “What’s the fastest path to cash?” Because here’s the bottom line—if you want to see your big vision business come to fruition, you’ve got to start making great money now. You require a big team, you require a big support system, you require a big vehicle to get your big vision out into the world.
So the longer it takes for you to start making money, the longer it’s going to take for you to share your message and your gifts with the world. So you have to ask the question, “What’s the fastest path to cash right now?” so that you can begin to create the wealth and abundance you need to fuel your big vision business.
Have you ever tried to say “fastest path to cash” five times fast?
So always remember to focus on what’s most important to you and to your business and to make those fast decisions, because that is what will propel you forward quickly in your business.
So that’s it for the first show, I hope you loved it. And now we need your help. What’s your big vision business, and more importantly, what do you need to know to make it real, now?
Go ahead and leave a question or comment right below or send us a little video. We might even put you in the next show. And if you like this, like us, share a comment below, post it on Facebook or Twitter or any of the other 5 billion social networks, and do us a favor and spread the love around.
And remember your big vision is possible, you just need to stop wishing, stop waiting, and get your ass into action. We’ll see you on the next show. Much love.
In this day and age, there are a million different ways to share your message with the world.
We have tele-seminars, webinars, e-books, live seminars, blogs, radio, internet radio, podcasts, etc…
And with all those different options, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with which one is best for you and your tribe… right?
I’m practicing what I preach…
One of the questions I always ask my students is: “Which vehicle do you enjoy the most?”
I know it sounds simple… but the truth is that it’s the best way to determine which one is right for you.
And for me… I just absolutely LOVE video!
We’re Creating Our Own Weekly TV Show
