Rank #1: 273 - The Point of No Return
My client Annie Grace is literally changing the world.
There comes a time in business when you're growing that you can no longer do it all yourself. Until you've built a team around you, you don't understand one of the greatest gifts to an entrepreneur.

Rank #2: 243 - Instant Equity Increase
It’s important to have a business that’s built in a way that creates value, that makes it worth a high dollar value. What investors want to see is company documentation, they don’t just want to know the end result, they want to know the road you took to get there. If you can’t provide this documentation, it’s any easy way for your business to lose value. Even if you’ve never considered selling, I want to show you how important having company documentation really is.

Rank #3: 252 - Success is Not an Event
Too often we believe that achieving a singular outcome will give us fulfillment and success.
However when we look at successful entrepreneurs, they don't have just one success event. Too many of us have been sold that this is what we're looking for only to be left disappointed.

Rank #4: 104 - Hack Your Goals to Win
There is a reason why most people who set goals don't achieve them. They have been sold a bill of goods that setting unachievable unrealistic goals is somehow it way to motivate ourselves.
When I go to an event and the overenthusiastic "goalsetting" speaker gets up I always have to go out in the hallway. The person who tells everyone in the room to write down the biggest income goal they have ever imagined, then cross it out and double it.
I cringe every time I hear this. Anyone who tells you to set goals like this isn't going to stick around to make sure that you actually achieve them. Most people who teach people how to set goals, don't have a lot in the way of tactics of how to get there.
Let me help you hack your goal setting this year so you can teach your team to win.

Rank #6: 111 - Stronger Relationships Fast
Sooner or later every entrepreneur parent realizes that their ultimate success is dependent upon their ability to build relationships.
Unfortunately this is hard for most of us. This was a particular area of weakness for me. I always felt like I was born with a different operating system and I did not understand the people around me.
There were very few shortcuts I found in understanding other people that really worked. This is one that not only worked, it permanently change my life.

Rank #7: 217 - What’s with your Clothes?
I often get asked, “Why do you dress the way you do?”
Years back a certain event triggered me on a quest for function over fashion. I’ve put a lot of research into why I wear what I do and I’d love to share it with you.

Rank #8: 332 - You Are Not A Risk Taker
The rest of the world describes entrepreneurs as risk takers but I deny that definition. They see us as risk takers because we're constantly moving forward. We try every day to make our greatest contribution and create change in the world. Accepting the status quo, being like everyone else and playing it safe, doesn't that seem like the riskiest thing in the world to you? The biggest risk of all, is standing still.

Rank #9: 274 - When Focus Hurts You
If you couldn't tell, I've obsessed over the question 'How do you make businesses grow?'
One of the biggest challenges here is understanding what to focus on during the right times.
Working hard can be a great thing. Working hard on the wrong things (even unintentionally) can take you backwards.
Have you ever thought to yourself 'I wish I could just go back to doing it all myself.'
What happens when focus hurts you?

Rank #11: 288 - Is MLM Legit?
My opinions on Multi Level Marketing have evolved over time.

Rank #12: 319 - The Waterfall
It’s the mark of an excellent organization when you know what you’re doing, everyone on the team knows where they’re going, and everyone feels that they play a part. When your team has clarity, it’s crazy how fast they’ll go. One of the tools we use to align teams is the Waterfall. It’s a dynamic document that essentially acts as a 30-day strategic plan. It ensures you maintain momentum and gives you clear direction. The Waterfall is the single most important document in my company and it may become the single most important in yours.

Rank #15: 463 - Slow Your Reaction Time
Reaction time has been a focus of mine for most of my life.
If you're ever feeling triggered or upset or if something has provoked you, you should slow down your reaction time.
When we're triggered we want to move through it as quickly as possible but when you're an entrepreneur and you're dealing with other people, you need to take a deep breath and actually slow down.
By responding to issues when you're feeling upset and frustrated you're going to leave yourself with a lot of clean up work and possibly broken relationships.
Triggered communication is almost always miscommunication.
If this is something you struggle with and you need some more strategies to handle tough situations, take a look at our course momentummasterclass.com It'll teach you the keystone habits to be a successful entrepreneur but also how to show up in the right ways and be present and aware for yourself, your family, and everyone around you.

Rank #16: 130 - Build Deep Processes
A business is nothing more than a series of processes that are repeated overtime to generate a consistent results. It seems pretty simple, so why is running a business so difficult? There is a reason why over 90% of businesses in the United States are sole proprietorships. Very few business owners ever build processes that are clear enough for them to get help. By building processes, on paper first, outside of any system, you are building the foundational value of your company. Not only that but you're actually making it easier for you to run. When you have the checklist or process document someone his been using for a function in your organization and that person leaves, you can quickly replace them. This will build a new sense of security and safety for you in your organization. You will need it, because when you build a deeper process, your company will grow much faster and it is much more likely that you will be promoting people rather than having them leave.

Rank #17: 391 - Accolades Create Momentum
This is a really important lesson for every entrepreneur out there, including me. In my twenties, I had the belief system that if I told anybody that they were doing a good job, that they would get complacent. So, all I did as a leader was tell people what they were doing wrong. If you're treating your team in a way that's punitive, if you're not acknowledging all the amazing things they do, you are creating a massive amount of stress between you and your team members. This is one of those changes of behavior that takes faith on your part but I promise that you achieve so much more momentum with positivity rather than negativity.
You absolutely can have the team you've always wanted. Go to billionairecode.com/apply we're ready to help you make your biggest outcome.

Rank #18: 114 - The Quitting Fantasy
It happened every entrepreneur or I know, including me.
You maybe having a bad week, a series of bad calls, challenges in your business or your personal life, maybe even issues with your team and then…
A small voice in the back of your head says “maybe I should just quit."
What you are quitting it depends on where you are. For some it will be quit and go back and get a job. For others it will be quit fire the team and go back to working by yourself. If you have a team, it may be quit growing it and go back to where it was manageable.
It doesn't matter which have, none of them are real.
Quitting is just a fantasy for people like us.

Rank #20: 317 - Why we Sabotage Success
It's debilitating for me when I start watching an entrepreneur make bad decisions and sabotaging themselves and their team. When you’re overwhelmed by an opportunity and you don’t have clarity on where to go next you will sabotage that opportunity because it only feels like pain. Consciously or unconsciously, you sabotage the opportunity in a protective way. If you don’t have clarity, strategy & process, eventually you’ll come undone. Are you stuck in a sabotage loop?
