I used to wonder if I’d have to go through some crazy shit to have a compelling angle to my expertise.
Like I might need to survive a car accident or beat a terminal disease to get people to notice me.
Yeah, I had a story, just like everyone does — but I’d merely struggled to make my high school basketball team then made YouTube videos.
No tragedy in that.Yeah, I had a story, just like everyone does — but I’d merely struggled to make my high school basketball team then made YouTube videos. No tragedy in that. Click To Tweet

It’s a tool that I started using back then and that I still use to this day in all of my material — whether free or paid.
Here is where I would tell you in what week of the Value Machine System training that I’ll cover this.
But the truth is, this tool runs throughout the entire training.
It will be a part of Week 1, Week 2, Week 4, Week 6… and it’s the whole difference between you being a brand and being a commodity.
If you don’t want to be just another ________ (basic description of what you do) taking up space, let me teach you the key frameworks you’ll be using every time you’re in front of an audience to guarantee satisfied consumers.
The Value Machine System training starts March 7 — registration closes on March 1.
