Naked Marketing Podcast with Guest, Wade Galt
It was wonderful meeting with Wade Galt, the creator of the 3-Day Weekend Club that aspires to help more entrepreneurs gain a 3-Day Weekend/4-Day Work Week lifestyle.
Wade understands the tenuous balance between financial freedom and time freedom that most entrepreneurs struggle with. For many people, it’s an “either-or” choice: You choose one and lose the other. However, Wade believes that with the right mindset, established strategies, and a long-term plan, you can shift to an “and” lifestyle, where you have more than enough money to sustain your lifestyle and still have the time to do what you love to do.
To achieve this, Wade emphasizes the importance of authenticity: Not only in the products or services you plan to deliver, but to yourself as well. He explains that you need to know who you are and why you want to achieve this lifestyle, for you to make the right decisions for your business.
Wade shares his naked marketing mistakes and how he used to just throw spaghetti at the wall to see which one stuck before he realized who he was and why he wanted to do what he does today.
Wade’s Top Suggestions On How To Avoid Makings Mistakes
- Know your “why” – As cheesy as this sounds, knowing “why” you are starting your business is crucial to your continued success. There are so many examples of people who become initially successful but lose interest (as well as money) along the way because their “why” is or wasn’t strong enough. Take all the time you need to discover a strong “why” – this will act as your North star.
- Be genuine in what you offer – It is very tempting to act as if you know everything or can offer a wide range of services to your customers. However, it’s best to always be grounded in what you can and cannot do. This also helps build your trustworthiness, as your clients know that you never overpromise or underdeliver.
- Learn from the best, but still do you – One of the things that many people do, much to their detriment, is that they listen to the best speakers or attend the best classes and then attempt to copy exactly everything they learn only to find out that no two businesses are the same. Learn from the best and then strategically apply that knowledge to your specific business.
