In This Episode:

  • Scarcity drives people to take action. It can be QUANTITY or TIME based.
  • You need to know how to handle the AFTERMATH of a scarcity special. No matter what, there will always be that ONE person who is mad they missed the price drop.
  • The key to using scarcity effectively is to set FIRM deadlines and stick by them.

Attended the School of Hard Knocks. A former restaurant manager in Oklahoma, Tom always wanted to be self-employed and free from the butt-smooching of the corporate world. He wanted success bad enough that he picked up his family, including two small children and moved to beautiful Maui, Hawaii. Starting from zero, Tom embarked on building a local marketing consulting business. And promptly fell on his face! It seems Hawaiians were lovely people, until you tried to sell them something! But he persevered and learned from his mistakes. Today he's arguably one of the most successful in his niche and expecting to grow over 100% this year alone.
