And how I did this with zero following and zero paid ads.

Two years ago I told myself I wanted out…

Do you remember the last time you told yourself that this 6 months will be your last 6 months at your current job? I did this over and over to myself and my partner Rebecca. When we first met, I was a server at a restaurant in town. I even put off asking her out for months because  I felt like she was too good for me. When we started to get more serious, I knew our jobs were very conflicting. As a school teacher, she would wake up some mornings to go to work and I would still be up working on my business. I would get home the restaurant after a double and she would be asleep already. I told her… 6 more months and I will be working for myself.

Two years later, enough is enough. I knew if I kept relying on that paycheck, I would never take the leap. I was tired of kidding myself, tired of lying to Rebecca and decided it was time. I came home from a night out at a Dirty Heads concert, after listening to the lyrics to their encore…

A-a-aye, I’m on vacation
Every single day ’cause I love my occupation
A-a-aye, I’m on vacation
If you don’t like your life, then you should go and change it
A-a-aye, I’m on vacation
Every single day ’cause I love my occupation
A-a-aye, I’m on vacation
Every single day, every, every single day
Every single day, every, every single day
Every single day, every, every single day-ay”

and I wrote my letter of resignation!

I had finally committed to myself, that I will never go back to working in a restaurant ever again. I sat down with all of my bank statements, canceled any expense that was not vital, and figured out exactly what I would need to make to keep bills paid each month. I figured I needed two new clients per month. Simple. I already had 6 paying clients at the moment and I wouldn’t have a problem keeping my head above water.

A month later I was asking to pick up banquet shifts…

I felt defeated.

I didn’t want to be the manager who ran back to his serving job because his business failed. The truth was, running a freelance business full time was not my favorite thing in the world. I spent most of my days chasing down clients for content. Waiting weeks to get paid and most time months. I was burned out fast and knew I had to do something different. And along came

…The One Funnel Away Challenge

This was the most comprehensive marketing and sales funnel training out there on the internet. I had already been using ClickFunnels in my business part-time for over a year and understood it well, but the OFA Challenge opened my eyes to a whole new horizon. I refer to it as a “marketing degree in 30 days” because I learned more in that 30-day challenge than my entire college career.

I started to implement the things that this remarkable training was teaching, and I asked myself, “what do all of the people who are having success have in common?” They were all publishing. They all had a Facebook group and gave tremendous amounts of support to their communities. I followed suit!

I had my first 4-figure week and I was stoked!

I knew I was going to be fine. I just made what it would normally take me three weeks to earn, and did it in 1/3rd the time. I could get used to this! You probably want to know how I did this… especially without spending any money on ads, right?

You can read more about my 6-Step Process to Earning 6-Figures in 4 Months here. The jist of it is this… I created a community that was very specific to and could benefit one specific type of entrepreneur… funnel builders! My Facebook group is called Sales Funnel Mastery: 5 Ways to Monetize ClickFunnels.  I was so tired of people saying “I can’t afford ClickFunnels” or “I don’t know how to use the software to be successful with it.”

I created something that would help solve a major problem for these entrepreneurs. 

Thinking back to when  I first got started in using ClickFunnels, I thought, what would have helped me most? I would have loved to have straight to the point, easy to follow video tutorials all in one place. So I created my free course, Sales Funnel Mastery. This is an asset that I know I could sell, but I decided to give it away to everyone who joined my Facebook Group for free!

I made a small group of these people an offer to join me in my course beta launch.

I offered to build out the advanced modules of my course live with this group, offering them exclusive live mentor masterclasses from my very own mentors… 6 weeks of direct access to me to help them in all things funnel related. I was able to go on and have my first 5 figure week in my life!

My Facebook group grew to 3,000 members in less than 4 months.

I already knew that the fastest way to help people was to get them signed up to the One Funnel Away Challenge. This was the very training that helped me earn my first consistent revenue in my business, and I just knew this is where I needed to focus. I created a webinar video talking about the challenge and I made it the pinned post in my group. Every person who joined the group would get a welcome tag, and I would direct their attention to that training.  I went on to sell over 400 people into the challenge resulting in life changes numbers. Not only did I make over $40,000 in just OFA sales, but I was able to sign up over 100 entrepreneurs to use ClickFunnels software, making 40% commission on their monthly subscriptions, while earning the ClickFunnel Dream Car Contest in just over two months!

If I can do it, so can you… time to put in the notice friends.

I am not telling you to quit your job now, but if you know you are met for something better, and you are burning up inside to make this happen… then put a plan in place to escape the 9 to 5. Know exactly what it is that you need to do in order to reach your goals. Don’t tell yourself “I need to make $5,000 per month to make the leap”… Tell yourself “I need two close three new clients per month” or “I need t people to buy the ClickFunnels Funnel Builder Secrets upgrade per month.” So again, if you do anything after reading this blog post, please go and map out your plan to put in your notice. It could be in two weeks, two months… but certainly, please do not take two years!

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re
    using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the
    site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
