Usually, when starting a business, as the owner, you can essentially do what you want to do when you want to. You don’t have a packed schedule, yet you still work all the time to ensure your business is growing. When you want to take a day off, you close early and have a nice day off! This is how many people operate, without much discipline. But when your business picks up, you find yourself hiring employees to help with running it as it generates more revenues. But you now need to effectively manage and operate your business, unlike before when you were just getting started. To make it easy to effectively run the business, building systems that make success more automatic for you can really be important. 

Building Systems That Make Success More Automatic

Building Systems That Make Success More Automatic In today’s episode, we’re joined by the world’s most disciplined man and an author of three books, Craig Ballantyne. Craig is also the owner of earlytorise.com, where he works as a coach for thousands of entrepreneurs in over 45 countries.

Craig is also the author of The Perfect Day Formula, which will teach you how to own your day and control your life to become even more disciplined and effective on whatever thing that you do.

In This Episode

Born lazy and an introvert, Craig suffered from crippling anxiety attacks. However, he’s now built systems that have allowed him to build multiple 7-figure businesses, stress-free. He shares about how you can be more productive with your day, become more time-efficient, and grow your business to the next level without putting too much stress and pressure on yourself.

“It all comes down to building systems that make success more automatic for you. That’s what allows you to be disciplined in the eyes of other people and get great results”

Being Efficient with Your Time

If someone has any ambition at all, the reason they are not successful is that they have not built systems that protect them from roadside bombs. 

The first important system that you have to work on is becoming efficient with your time. Most people spend too much of their time on the least productive things and end up wasting a lot of their time. 

Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that time is the most valuable resource for them because it’s the only one that never gets back. The good thing is that we all have time, equally. What brings the difference is how we manage it.

Questions To Help You Make Extra 10 Hours A Week

Craig lists these questions as key in helping you create more time if you find yourself held up throughout the week, yet you need to be more productive:

  • What do you hate doing in your business? You have the answer in your mind. Whatever, you hate doing, always avoid creating time for it during your magic time (the time of the day you’re more productive, creative, and energetic). Avoiding doing it can help you be more productive by saving yourself a couple of hours and mental energy. You should then do what you hate doing when you’re done with other things and wouldn’t mind spending a lot of time doing it.
  • What should you stop doing, that nobody else should do? This includes spending time on unproductive and distracting activities such as social media, drinking too much beer or wine. This helps you wake up feeling stronger and ready for the next day, therefore becoming more productive.

Tips to effectively manage your time

  • Stop multitasking. Brain jumping between tasks makes it extremely exhausting and makes you less productive.
  • Set deadlines for every task that you do. Otherwise, you may spend too much time on something, costing you a lot of energy than what’s needed to finish it.
  • Prioritize tasks. 
  • Get rid of the things that often distract you while working. A good example is switching off your phone when working.
  • Work when you’re most productive. It’s not always easy to be fully focused and productive all the time. Figure out your magic time and give it your best.

“You make time for things that matter. You don’t find time for the things that matter.”

Sleep & Waking Up

Craig says that the time you wake up is not so important. What is so important is what you do when you’re up. Since most people go to bed late in the night, there’s no need to wake up early in the morning if it’s not right for you. 

On how much sleep you should get, he says not every day has to be the same. You can go to bed at different times during the week, and it won’t affect your effectiveness.

Skillset Vs Mindset

If you haven’t been told already, then probably you have heard that the most successful people are known to have either a great skill set or the right mindset that keeps them going. Others have a combination of both. But, is there a better option than the other? To sum up, you will need the right mindset to build the skill sets that will give you the growth that you want. In Episode 55 of the Brofessional Development Podcast, we shared about building a skillset and developing a growth mindset. Here’s a summary of the episode, or listen to the Full Episode HERE.

Skillset Vs Mindset

“Greatness isn’t born. It’s grown.” You need passion and the right mindset to build a range of skills that will help you achieve greatness. In today’s episode, we talk about skillset vs. Mindset. The two types of mindsets that people have, and why having a growth mindset is better than having a fixed mindset.

Defining Skillset Vs Mindset

Skillset

According to dictionary.com, A skillset is someone’s combination of skills that they have developed, especially to enable them effectively do something in their roles.

Mindset

In simple terms, mindset means your established attitude and beliefs. 

There are two types of mindsets.

  • Fixed mindset: People with a fixed mindset tend to be contended with what works for them. Once they have found a way that suits them, for instance where they can earn, they put all their effort there to maximize their revenue.
  • Growth Mindset: Often, people with a growth mindset tend to be more successful. Even after finding a gem in what works for them, they still push themselves and are always learning and figuring out how things can work out quicker on their behalf while still looking for more opportunities.

What Do You Need? Skillset or Mindset?

Anybody can learn any skillset in the world. And by working on your skillsets, you can be sure of doing something once again even if you lose everything now. Since you have the skill and understand what the process takes, you will do it over and over again. 

However, you can have all the skillsets in the world, but without the right mindset, you’re never going to be a little bit better. 

The good news is that skillsets build the right mindset. You cannot build a skillset without getting knocked down a few times. And by getting knocked down over and over again when learning, you develop the growth mindset that will keep you going. 

Similarly, with the right mindset, you can be able to grow your skills because without a proper skillset, you will not be competitive in what you’re doing. That’s why you need both all the time as an entrepreneur. 

How to grow your skillset

Now that you know that you can learn any skillset, here are some ways to help you get started.

  • Be Curious: Some successful people will tell you that curiosity is the main thing that drives entrepreneurs. They are often asking questions and wanting to learn more. Entrepreneurs don’t waste their time on what they already know. Instead, they are always in search of new challenges and opportunities.
  • Be a leader: Don’t just follow. Take leadership positions, take responsibility, and initiate. This will help you grow your leadership skills.
  • Find role models or get a mentor: With the right inspiration around you. You will understand how far you need to go to get to your goals.
  • Set goals: By having goals, you can tell what’s needed to be done in order to accomplish them. Milestone by milestone, you will surely develop different skills along the way.

How to build a growth mindset

A growth mindset is the second thing you need to become successful. Here are some ways to build it.

  • Focus on the effort: Along the way, you will often face disruptions to reach your goals. Did you know that praising your efforts rather than your abilities can be more positive and keep pushing you? 
  • Ask questions: When you have a growth mindset, it’s almost instinct that you will ask questions and find answers. Whenever you fail, instead of telling yourself to just try harder next time, ask yourself what you could do differently and what worked and what did not. 

Persistence: Failing is nothing negative. It’s part of learning. Anytime you fail, learn to get back and try again. However, you will need to be cautious and understand when to step back and strategize before trying again.

Skillset VS Mindset

“Greatness isn’t born. It’s grown.” You need passion and the right mindset to build a range of skills that will help you achieve greatness. In today’s episode, we talk about skillset vs. Mindset. The two types of mindsets that people have, and why having a growth mindset is better than having a fixed mindset. We are all born with a growth mindset but when do we change to having a fixed mindset? Tune in to find out more!

Powerful Quotes

  • Tough times never last but tough people do – Dr. Robert H. Schuller
  • The first million is hard, the second is inevitable. If you’ve done something once, you have the skillset to do it again.
  • You can’t build a skillset without getting kicked in the nuts a few times.
  • You can have the greatest skill in the world. But if you do not have that mindset, hidden in there, you’re never going to be a little bit better. 
  • One of the things you have to have to be the best in the world in what you do is passion. If you don’t have passion for what you’re doing, then you’re going to give up as soon as you get to a challenge.
  • The people that want that shit go out and get it. They have that growth mindset.

It’s always difficult to find and bond with people that share similar ideology with you, and those who only want to succeed just as much as you do. Even worse, with several friends and people around you, it can be hard to build an effective circle that can help you get to the next level of success. It’s true, your friends are different and you can’t lose them to remain with just a few that buy to your thoughts. But you still want to grow and want to achieve so much in life with the “right” circle. So how do you start building a circle that creates success in such a situation?

Building A Circle That Creates Success

When you’re yearning to take yourself to the next stage of life, you need people around you that will push you towards working for success. You need to have a circle with like-minded individuals who share similar ideas like yours.

In episode 53, we shared some ways and tips to get started. We also shared some notable quotes from successful people on how you can start your own circle.

The Mastermind Session

The Mastermind Session is an in-person event hosted by the Brofessional Development Podcast team where we get to know each other, share teaching lessons on certain entrepreneurial topics, and try to solve each of our member’s issues in their businesses.

A total of 16 people attended our first Mastermind Session, with individuals coming from diverse backgrounds. Whether you have 30 years of experience in entrepreneurship, you’re just getting started or seeking ways to be a good employee, the Mastermind Session accommodates every kind of person that wants to grow and better their life.

In our first session, there was no structure we followed. People shared their stories and the problems they would love to be helped with throughout the session as we got to know each other.

The Second Mastermind Session is scheduled for October 30th, and everybody is welcomed! We will have a clear structure to address specific topics that seek to teach lessons to members as we also share some insightful experiences and tips around specific topics.

Remember: Mastermind Session is not about selling anything to anyone. It focuses on helping members become better individuals.

How To Build A Circle That Creates Success

“The place to begin building any relationship is inside ourselves, inside our circles of influence, or our own character. – Steven Covey.

Even before you think of building a circle of people that are going to help you get to the next level, you first have to start getting to the next level. You need to have a mentality switch that says, “I want to be that person.”

Can you have multiple circles?

It’s not about losing friends to allow yourself to grow up. But it’s possible to lose touch with some of them.

The good thing is that you can have multiple circles for every part of your life that you want to build on. This is important because you won’t find yourself losing friends because they don’t buy into your thoughts and ideas.

For instance, you can have the following circles in your life and not lose anything:

  • Family
  • Volleyball friends
  • Golfing friends
  • Business friends
  • Growth mindset

Even spending a day with somebody once a month that you think isn’t a good company will not hinder you from getting to where you want to be. Sometimes you need time off to shake off things in your life and be free.

“It’s so easy to get into a circle if you just put some effort into where you want to go.”

Building a circle can be easy when you involve social media.

Just add a post advertising your intentions and the type of people you’re looking to have. You will probably get one or two people that are interested, form a group, plan for a meetup talk about it, and get started! Other people will join later once you’re rolling.

Whatever circle you want to build, most people really want to be part of it but they just don’t know how they can. Sometimes people just wait for you to ask!

This week, how to man up with Bedros Keuilian! Strength and growth only come through continuous effort and struggle. While the dream of every entrepreneur is to live on top of the mountain, all the happiness and growth occurs while climbing it. But in the absence of resources, you need to be resourceful and work yourself to where you want to be. You need to break out of mediocrity and take control. If you’re wondering how to make the U-turn and head towards success, this episode is for you. 

Man Up! How To Break Out Of Mediocrity And Take Control With Bedros Keuilian

Bedros Keuilian is a performance coach, speaker, and also business consultant. He has invested in dozens of businesses and companies, ranging from digital media agencies, software, education, and consulting firms. Bedros is also the founder and CEO of a four-time Inc.

In episode 53 of the Brofessional Development podcast, we interview Bedros Keuilian, a performance coach, speaker, business consultant, and the author of Man Up: How to Cut the Bullshit and Kick Ass in Business (and in Life). Bedros has invested in several companies in the digital media, software, education, and consultation industries. He is also the founder and CEO of the Fit Body Boot Camp, one of the fastest-growing franchises in the US. 

Bedros Keuilian’s Early Life Struggles

But all these were not an overnight success. From escaping Russian Communism with his family at the age of six, Bedros and his family found themselves in Italy before entering the United States “legally.” He remembers the hardships the family went through while he was young, getting infected with lice, and even eating expired food from the groceries. 

“We were so broke. My mom had my dad siphon gasoline from a parked car, and she washed my hair with gasoline because it kills lice and it was free.”

But the early life struggles taught him many lessons about becoming an entrepreneur. He says the first lesson he learned was to become resources in the absence of resources such as food and money.

The Turning Point & Becoming An Entrepreneur

Growing up, Bedros Keuilian lived a life of violence in his late teens and early twenties until they were busted by the police attempting to rob a woman, and all his other friends getting sent to jail. He was left free after the woman didn’t identify him. This was Bedros’ turning point which made him address his inner self to relieve stress that was as a result of being molested while still young. 

He decided to seek 16-weeks therapy to help him cope with the stress and anxiety so he could grow his business. 

While working as a personal trainer, Bedros met Jim Franco who asked him about owning his own gym. Being frank with him, he said he knew nothing about entrepreneurship. That’s when Jim started mentoring him to become an entrepreneur. 

Bedros says anyone can become an entrepreneur. You only need to:

  • Figure out what you can do better than others because the odds are that people are doing what you want to do.
  • Find someone that’s doing what you want to do and model success. 
  • Work for successful individuals and learn from them.
  • If you don’t want to work for them, hire them as mentors.

Finding a mentor

With several mentors in the market, it can be hard to find the right one to help you grow and become successful in whatever you’re doing. Bedros says that in order to find a mentor, you need to:

  • Ask the potential mentor to give you three or four names of their previous clients in the field you are in and talk to them to see the results.
  • Ask to be referred to them.
  • Go work for someone you respect in the industry you want to be in, and learn from them.

He has worked with several mentors on his journey to success on how to Man Up!. Some include:

Joe Weldon- speaking coach

Dan Kennedy- copywriting coach

Joe Polish- marketing coach.

“I paid so much money to mentors and it’s literally the best investment I’ve made in terms of business. Mentorship on every level of business, marriage, mindset, and psychology is necessary”

 Managing your business

As a business owner, there will be so many duties and work to do. The best way is to delegate some things to your employees and only be left with the ones you can only do. Bedros advises that you pay people to do 95% of work and only be left with the 5% that you can only do. 

After delegating, you need to motivate your partners, employees, and partners to realize sales. 

To build a strong team, you need to be a great communicator and lead from the front, while taking care of them. If you don’t, they will soon leave to join your competitors or even biome one.

He says that as a business owner, don’t be quick to fire and so slow to mentor and develop. 

We hope you enjoyed learning how to Man Up with Bedros Keuilian!

Powerful Quotes

  • I think that there’s natural talent and ability that people are born with, whether that’s in sports, business, or just in life in general. But the issue is a lot of people will never tap into their natural ability and it just goes to be useless.
  • You have to love what you do. You have to have a good coach. And if you put all that together, that’s where the talent starts to develop itself.
  • People do not decide their future. They decide their habits and their habits decide their future.
  • If you can dream it, you can do it.
  • I want to find that place where most people quit and I want to be there as much as possible.
  • You are the product of the people you surround yourself with and the content that you consume.
  • Anything that’s your first is going to be bad and you can’t get to 100x without starting. So many people are just refusing to start because they are scared of failing.
  • People are happy and comfortable because it’s easy. I think the podcast just forces us to do more uncomfortable things and we grow.

It wasn’t until I found a passion that I had a “why” to actually try in school and finish college (which for the record, I use exactly 0% of MY education).

I knew the entire fucking time that what I was being taught is irrelevant to real life.


I was in the hall for 25% of the classes for not fitting in. I was put into a special school district study hall because I refused to take my Adderall (the drug they give you to fit in line with the rest of the class since you are different).

Real life doesn’t even start until graduation day,  and on that day, the real game starts.

Graduating near last in my class means that every time I see them, there is a 95% chance they did better than me in high school. And there is a 99% chance I am doing better than them now professionally.

I still know people who graduated with 3.8 GPA’s who are working jobs making less than $40k/year 10 years after high school.

Don’t let your past failures dictate your future. Don’t hold on to it. If anything, use it as fuel to prove the system wrong.

Just remember Haters are going to Hate!
