In this episode of “Y.E.L. 2.0”, your host Peter Voogd, serial Entrepreneur, Mentor, Speaker, Best-selling Author and Husband gives three great hacks on how to keep momentum on your side as the two scariest things in life are momentum or lack of momentum. In today’s episode, Peter suggests ways of building momentum, committing to your craft, focussing on mastering the process, thinking about the big picture, systemizing your growth, and getting in the zone.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Peter Voogd says that he has realised the two scariest things in life are momentum or lack of momentum.
  • He says when you have momentum on your side it's almost like you're working at a different frequency and so there's only three things that keep momentum on his side.
  • He ensures that he is always in the zone when he creates content or shoots videos or writes his book or when he creates motivational tracks for his mix tape.
  • Peter states that he doesn’t even have time for wasted conversation because he has his family and he is running a business, so he doesn’t have time for small talks as he has a big vision and mission.

3 Key Points:

  • Peter gives three unshakable keys to keeping momentum on your side because according to him when you don't have momentum on your side, nothing seems to work and when you have momentum on your side it's almost like you're superhuman, you're in a different state of mind and you're creating better results than you ever have.
  • When you execute these three things (Predetermine your outcome/ Systemize your growth/ Keep the big picture in mind), when you actually build momentum and build a sustainable business, you can afford the luxury of travelling and see your business growing.
  • According to Peter sometimes when you have a big vision, you'll represent the strength, courage, and ambition; you have to think about the big picture and the big picture will keep you focused on the little things that keep momentum on your side because when momentum is on your side, everything becomes so much more enjoyable and easier.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “I've been working 70-80 hours and of course, I'm asking for help, when I ask the Society for help, all they tell me is work harder.” - Peter Voogd
  • “My mistake was I got too cocky and I left too quickly without any systems or the right people in place, and I've seen more businesses crumble because of that.” - Peter Voogd
  • “So, make sure you're in the zone before you do work, you're way more effective.” - Peter Voogd
  • “And that forces me to face reality and grow when I know I'm not growing, if I have a bad week, I better not bring in another bad week so I can course correct.” - Peter Voogd

They discuss the strategic ways to how to just keep going in business and succeed.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Peter Voogd asks, “When did you realise that you had understood marketing, there's some entrepreneurs who have been around for 10 to 15 years and they still don't understand marketing.”
  • He further questions the guest - Rudy that about his first go-to method to drive traffic to a new website, so that they get enough pixel data to have decent sized audiences when they run ads.
  • The guest says that they do a lot of free live video content as they have a free Facebook group. They did a lot of free stuff earlier but they don't do too many opting guides and free courses anymore.
  • As per Rudy the common mistake most of us make is we like to talk a lot about our products and business.
  • Rudy answers to Shawn’s question, “I'm an online educational mentorship company, currently 700 members, and we offer a lucrative affiliate programme; what is the best way to 10-X our Company?”
  • Rudy reveals that he is managing different teams & divisions and giving strategic direction to those people. He has his team including systems, processes, operations, project and marketing managers, working towards his vision.
  • Peter thinks that the key aspect is that if you do go down the rabbit hole and you fail and you waste 30 grand, you're not sitting there sulking for a week, you're just going to get back to it, keep hustling.
  • Rudy finally states that, “If you get really good at strategy operations teams then data business will become much easier, much faster and you'll have quicker success.”

3 Key Points:

  • The guest - Rudy advises to try and go broader and then refine it over time in terms of driving traffic to a new website, so that you build-up enough pixel data.
  • He suggests that if you try to do more paid stuff, you will get a better quality lead, buyer and follow-on. If you want to do free stuff you reverse engineer it.
  • Rudy recommends hiring a mentor that can help figure out what to focus on each day or hire someone in your team who can help figure that out and if you can, you have to start doing, like, 80/20 list basically every day or every week or every month.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “It wasn't until I actually switched and became a marketer, that I started to really you know, that's when I hit a million dollars pretty quickly.” - Rudy
  • “How do you decide what content to give away for free and what to charge for?” - Peter Voogd
  • “So we do less free stuff now we do a lot of free live videos and content, but now we try and sell like $20, $30, $7, $9 and $50 courses and programmes and products because it might seem small $20 but that $20 buyer is wildly different so that free opt in.” – Rudy
  • “So, what about the person that comes to you and says, Rudy, it's hard to market to my people, it's hard to market to my target audience because they're old because they're this.” - Peter Voogd
  • “How do you figure out what to focus on each day, how you focus on getting work done versus putting out team fires and constantly have to be responsive versus just pass out things happen?” - Peter Voogd
  • I have a very unique ability of figuring out what that is in businesses so this time, most millionaires and billionaires are very good at knowing what to do and what not to do right and that's just as important.” – Rudy

In this episode of “Y.E.L. 2.0”, your host Peter Voogd, serial Entrepreneur, Mentor, Speaker, Best-selling Author, Husband and Father interviews Peter McCormack  the Gamechanger and talks about whether Bitcoin will RUIN or SAVE our World.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Peter Voogd asks Peter McCormack, “Can you share with people what's going on now Salvador with the legal tender. Can you kind of explain the last couple months of what's happening with Bitcoin in El Salvador and becoming legal tender and everything behind the scenes?”

When we talk about education as educating people why Bitcoin is so much more important than all these other coins is, educating people on how to use it as educated people on volatility, how to manage those aspects, they're all super important.
  • According to Peter McCormack Bitcoin has never changed as monetary policy, it is really hard to change. It is so for a reason because Bitcoin has to do a couple of things very well, it has to enforce its 21 million Bitcoin limit and it has to maintain the centralization, which enables censorship resistant money.
  • Peter McCormack recommends to anyone investing in Bitcoin that you have to play the long game. With this, you have to be thinking, multi-year, even decade or multi decade. The reason is Bitcoin is volatile in the short term and you can't create a new asset in this period.

In this episode of “Y.E.L. 2.0”, your host Peter Voogd, serial Entrepreneur, Mentor, Speaker, Best-selling Author, Husband and Father talks to Justin Donald, author of book “The Lifestyle Investor”, where he shares the secrets that empowered him to multiply his net worth to over eight figures in less than two years. He focuses on showing entrepreneurs how to think and invest to limit risk and maximize returns through his proven passive income cash flow strategies. 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Peter says if you only execute with no thinking that's going to be a rough life and he also says that he doesn’t think people understand the importance of staying harmonised in life.
  • Justin states that he just can't emphasise enough the importance of building in that time, where you can really plan and think for yourself.
  • Peter asks Justin that how much time he took to write the book.
  • According to Justin, his book is full of life stories one of which includes when he lost a lot of money.
  • Peter asks Justin about the top most common myths that people hear that are out in the marketplace.
  • “I found out that I had lost money, how is that possible? How did I lose money?” asks Justin.
  • Justin advises to put your money in an index fund, which is the lowest cost way to invest.

Key Points:

  1. As per Justin, his experience with the conventional way of investing made him question the way that everyone does things and what he learnt was that whatever the majority of people do, you don't want to do that because the majority of people haven’t yet figured it out as they're like sheep.
  2. Justin suggests that you don't have to like accounting to be good at investing; also you don't have to even be good at accounting, because you can just hire really good people.
  3. An average rate of return is not an actual rate of return and so an average rate of return of 10% could mean that you have lost money. It depends on what the actual rate of return is.

Tweetable Quotes:

  • “A lot of my best ideas come when I'm in the shower.” - Justin Donald
  • “That's why, and so it was about 15 years ago that I really got into alternative investments, and that was a game changer for me.” – Justin Donald
  • “One of the first outside conversations we had was just how to structure your business tax wise and I remember half our conversation” - Peter Voogd
  • “I probably should study these numbers a little bit more and not just trust it and I was like let me see how much I've invested since the beginning and let me see what I've earned, and that was the wake-up call.” - Justin Donald
  • “Only 5% of the time, does an actively managed fund or manager outperform that simple index, which is an eye opening.” - Justin Donald
