Hopefully you guys feel that in your business sometimes, where you're stressed, you're overwhelmed, you're tired and you just want to give up sometimes even, but after you do finish through and execute, you see the fruits of it and how it can affect people. That's the recharge. That's what gets you going again. It keeps you excited. That's it! I am home. I have got a whopping five hours of sleep I got to get tonight before I'm on stage tomorrow and I'm on stage the whole day, so I'm going to get some sleep. I will be ready in the morning to deliver and serve.

Hey everyone. This is Russell Brunson and welcome to midnight Marketing In Your Car.

Hey everyone, so I am two days into my six day event. I've been doing a lot of events lately. I need to stop this. I need to get back to just working hard. Literally, I'm kind of getting, not burned out, but just ... I guess, stop doing events. We did a five day event for this certification in Boise and now six days. Our high end Mastermind group, our Inner Circle grew so big that we had to split it into two groups.

Then we have our $12,000 program, Ignite, and then we did an event in Boise for them as well. I kind of like bundle them all together. Monday, Tuesday, we had a Mastermind. Wednesday, Thursday, we had the Ignite event and then Friday and Saturday, we have the next Inner Circle. Kind of a crazy week, but the first two days, it's always interesting ... This is me getting vulnerable, and it's almost one in the morning and I'm tired, so maybe I'll listen to this later and be like, "Why in the world am I sharing all this"? You guys are getting it because you are here listening when I'm talking.

Anyway, it's funny because I'm sure all you guys get this, at a point where you get some burn out in your business. Right now, I'm kind of feeling that a little bit. I think partially it's just because the last twelve months since we launched Click Funnels, we've been running fast and trying to grow and scale, a company, which luckily has been working. That's exciting, right? That's a big thumbs up. Then cut off all the other businesses so we're shutting things down.

The only business we really have besides Click Funnels right now, that's live and active is the DotComSecrets business, which it has a bunch of employees and you know there's things happening there as well. Our high end coaching, things like that. It seems like recently, coaching has exploded, which takes a lot more time, and seminars, and trying to speak to sell Click Funnels and this-and-that. Thing after thing after thing, it just getting a lot.

Right now, from this week, and then I have two weeks off, and then I'm going to Australia for a week, then I got three speaking gigs in a week. Then after that, I've got a two or three month break, which is going to be really, really nice. It's just kind of chaotic, right? A lot traveling, a lot of time away from my family and I honestly, all I want to do is be at home in my wrestling room playing with my kids.

I'm trying to get through this backlog of commitments and then we're going to really be restructuring things. We are trying to protect my time a lot more after the first week of November. So part of me, coming to this coaching, which is like, do I want to keep doing that? Do we just shut down DotComSecrets and focus on Click Funnels, that's on us, where the big opportunity is.

Monday when I was driving to the Mastermind, I Voxed Liz, a lot of you guys know Liz. I said, "Hey, what would be your thoughts if I did stop doing the coaching stuff?" I was curious, and she messaged back this really great thing about the impact I had on her life and anyway, it just made me feel really good. Then we started the Mastermind and honestly, I was nervous at first because there was a lot of new faces in the group. I hope everyone gets along. I hope that everyone is providing value, and I just want to make it an amazing experience for the group. We did it day one and day two, and it's been kind of hard because I'm also planning for the events happening the next two days.

I pull an eight hour day with the Mastermind, then I go back to the office for six or seven hours working on presentations. And then all day mastermind and I just got done spending eight more hours working on presentations for tomorrow. I was just tired, worn out, and beat up. It was amazing at the end of the Mastermind today, I had everyone go through and say, "What was your biggest ah ha"? It was awesome. Just seeing people who came in on Monday and within 48 hours, I completely transformed, not just their businesses in a lot of situations, but their lives.

We had one guy, an older gentleman, started bawling his eyes out when he was sharing his take away. Then we had someone else who it completely changed the trajectory of his life, moving forward. For me to have a chance to be part of that, to have facilitated that and to be around that is so neat. I remember I got back to the office and I had all this stuff. I was stressed out and overwhelmed at all these things and I got a Vox from this dude named Noah, in our group, and he left me the coolest Vox, thanking me for the experience and all these kind of things. I'm sitting there tired and I just want to go home. I'm worn out and he was inspired that I was putting this much effort into the event the next day.

It just made me so grateful for that. I think that it's interesting; I get a lot of value personally, out of that. Out of the helping and the serving and seeing people's lives and businesses affected in that way. It's just interesting. It's funny, after all the stress and headache, the tiredness, almost trying to figure out, should we just stop doing this? What's the plan after a day like that? I was like, you know what? What we are doing is good. It's worth it. It isn't just me selling something to make money, but it's people having life changing effects because of it which is ... I think, one of the main reasons most of us get into business, especially a coaching type business.

With that said, I'm two days into a four day event. I'm sure I'll message you guys again throughout the week telling you the ups and the downs. I'm sure there will be some of those as we make it all through it. I'm just excited. I really enjoy this. I love the chance it gives me to share, grow, and to think. To try to think bigger than I normally do. To try to inspire and bring new things. I'm just going to say, for you guys, whatever business it is you're in, I would try to add some kind of coaching component to it just because when you do you start making connections and you start seeing ... I don't know how to explain it.

I've talked about it in different podcasts. When I was in high school, my senior year, they had me start coaching at wrestling camps. I remember trying to break down moves for people and learning and really starting to figure out why these things work. I could do the move but I started realizing why the move worked. When you understand that and you're conscious of it, you can change things and you can make things better and execute things better.

I think a big part of that was for me, when we were putting this event together and we're calling it Funnel Catcher. It was kind of walking through the content promotion strategy that we're starting in our business. I really had ... To be able to get the information, to be able to share it the next two days with everybody. We had to test a lot of things and we had to try a lot of thing. I had to learn a lot of things. I had to think through things. I had to try to figure out why does this work or why isn't this working? How could this work, potentially on this network and that? It just made me think at a different level than I would if I was just in my business the whole time.

I am grateful for that. It's pretty cool. What's cool is that we have the presentations over the next two days and it's going to be a good framework for the entrepreneurs who are at the event, to take it and to run with, but it also has forced me to build a foundation as well. Where we would go for something, we're kind of onsey, twosey doing to here is the framework in a defined way.

Anyway, it's pretty exciting. I don't know if my ramblings meant anything or mattered tonight, but hopefully it did. Hopefully you guys feel that in your business sometimes, where you're stressed, you're overwhelmed, you're tired and you just want to give up sometimes even, but after you do finish through and execute, you see the fruits of it and how it can affect people. That's the recharge. That's what gets you going again. It keeps you excited. That's it! I am home. I have got a whopping five hours of sleep I got to get tonight before I'm on stage tomorrow and I'm on stage the whole day, so I'm going to get some sleep. I will be ready in the morning to deliver and serve.

For all of you guys who are in Ignite or Inner Circle, I'm excited to see you guys in the morning and hopefully, what I bring tomorrow will help transform you and your businesses and get you to where you want to be. I appreciate everybody for listening and we will talk to you all again very, very soon. Thanks guys.
