Turning Junk Into A Billion Dollar Revenue—Strategies You Need To Be Successful

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark talks with the founder of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, Brian Scudamore; O2EBrands.com 

Brian talks with us about how he got started in a pick-up truck picking up junk to pay his way through college to owning several successful businesses and is on his way to making a billion in revenue! It took him 8 years to make that first million, but now he does that in ONE day. 

What does it take to get to that level?  

Stick-With-It-Ness! Do not give up. To build a great company you have to go through: 

  • The ups and downs
  • Making mistakes
  • Learning process
  • Tweaking the model and making it better! 

You also need to build a great team. Find the right people, train them right and treat them right! Brian gives his team 5 weeks off a year.  

When building a great company with great people you need to have them live great lives. 

Brian also shares with us how his second business almost failed because he had reached a level of arrogance in thinking that he had it all figured out. Each company is different and what worked for the first one may not work for the next one. He took that lesson learned into his 3rd and 4th company and they are now successful because of it.

Changing Your Habits One Decision At A Time For Successful Results

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark talks to Carrie Wilkerson from CarrieWilkerson.com—The Barefoot Executive. Carrie has a long list of attributes, including Best-Selling Author, International Speaker, Award Winning Podcaster, and named by Forbes as a top small business influencer. 

She is also a mother of 4, has lost 140 pounds, runs several successful businesses from home and has paid off a 6-figure debt! How does she do it? 

It all comes down to making one decision at a time and changing your behavior one day at a time to change your patterns. Here is how to get started:

  • Be honest with yourself—Your naked before picture. Really acknowledge what it looks like now, whatever it is that you’re trying to change.  
  • Make your one time decisions—Your non-negotiables. Make your decisions and create your routines in advance.
  • Make those decisions when you are stronger—so in your weak moments there are no decisions to be made because you’ve already made them! You tend to make bad decisions when you are weak.
  • Start with a couple of manageable decisions. Don’t overload yourself with change, or else you are setting yourself up for failure.  

We also discuss the one thing you need to overcome to succeed at any business and that is FEAR.Fear of what other’s think of you and fear of failure. You have to put yourself out there and embrace the suck—that’s where the real growth comes from. 

What is holding you back? Listen in to our talk with Carrie for some clarity.
