No One Is Self-Made—It Takes a Village (Matthew Kimberley)
Making It: How to Be a Successful Online Entrepreneur
Welcome to Making It. This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it. Episode summary: Matthew Kimberley is the CEO of Book Yourself Solid® Worldwide, and according to him, “making it” means you get to decide where you spend your time, your money, your energy, and your attention. Matthew is “rad” and easy going. He doesn't go for conventional marketing tactics, and he's not hardcore competitive. Matthew says that if people work together and understand each other, we will all be better off. He believes that it’s an absolute fallacy to be self-made. It takes a village to make it, and investing in relationships brings the greatest returns. “Making it means you get to decide where you spend your time, and where you spend your money, and where you spend your energy, and your attention.” – Matthew KimberleyGuest bio: Matthew Kimberley is the CEO of Book Yourself Solid® Worldwide, the founder of The School for Selling, and the creator of Delightful Emails.

When we think of attracting clients into our business, we immediately think of marketing. But not for Matthew Kimberley, the owner of Book Yourself Solid, who believes that marketing does not get you clients. In this episode, he joins John Livesay to explain to us this contrarian idea as inspired by Michael Port's Book Yourself Solid, a handbook for self-promotion that can help you get more clients even if you hate marketing and selling. He discusses the effectiveness of emails and how best to format them, growing a personality-based brand, and becoming a person of value rather than a provider of value. What is more, Matthew then speaks about why your business should be a love story, one that is between you and your business, you and your clients, and you and marketing. Love the show?

PETER FRITZ | Office Anywhere
Matthew Kimberley is a sales training extraordinaire – sought by bigtime entrepreneurs, fortune-500s and those smart enough (and flush enough) to seek his counsel.He's taught French to rich kids in Kuala Lumpur, served Whisky in Brussels and given English lessons through the magic of theatre, in Italy.In 2007, he threw on his big boy pants to found a tech recruitment company in Belgium (which he grew to millions in revenue), before taking on the top job at the Book Yourself Solid School of Coach Training. He later went on to create The School for Selling, and he is the cunning brains behind The Single Malt Mastermind and The Principles of Professional Persuasion.Today, from his Bond-style lair on the sunny island of Malta (where, apparently, everyone is naked), he works with companies from around the world to help them achieve remarkably better results. Indeed, Glamour Magazine described him as the “tough-love business guru”. His latest book, Get a F*cking Grip is the last self-help book you'll ever need. Today, we discuss why. Learn more.
