Episode 77: Why you’re probably wrong, and so am I

Are you putting off starting your business because you worry you might be wrong?

You might think you could be missing important information or that someone else could be better or more qualified than you.

If you let those thoughts hold you back, you’ll never get your business off the ground. You’ll waste valuable time worrying instead of taking action, building and growing your business. 

You might be surprised to hear this, but most entrepreneurs are wrong!

I’ve been there myself, so I created this episode to share what you can do to start your business even if you think you’re wrong.

In this episode, I am going to cover:

  • Why being wrong is common in entrepreneurship
  • How to start your business even if you think you’re wrong
  • What to do to correct your mistakes if you discover you’re wrong.

In today’s episode, we’re gonna be talking about why you’re probably wrong, and so am I.
All right, everybody. So one of the things that I see holding people back in entrepreneurship is the idea that what if I’m wrong? What if I’m wrong? Right.
Especially when it comes to people who are doing professional services, and they’re new, or their coaches and consultants, or online course creators, or they have a service. And it really just has to do with new, right? What if I’m wrong? What if I’m not doing this the best way? What if somebody else is better at this than me? Blah blah blah blah blah. Well, here’s the thing.
Imagine for a moment science, right, go back a hundred years, 200 years, 300 years, 400 years. Science thought certain things, you know, people, society thought certain things. They, at one point, it was widely accepted that the earth was flat. And then as science progressed and we got better at things like, you know, physics and this and that, we could put satellites in space.
We went. “Oh no, you know, the earth is round. Okay. We were wrong. The earth is round.” Boom. And you know, there are tons of scientific discoveries that, you know, we thought one thing. And then we discovered that it was something else, or we found a better way to measure things or what have you now, even today with, I mean, we just put a third Rover on Mars, you know?
I mean, even today, with all the technology we have in 50 years, or really probably even in five years, or maybe even in six months, we’re going to have better ways of doing things. We’re going to have discovered things that we thought were one way. And we now find them to be another way. We were going to discover these things. And, you know, imagine if medicine and science just said, “Well, we’re not sure. And maybe we’re wrong. And so we’re not going to move forward. We’re not going to put our stuff out there.”
Look, it’s okay to be wrong. It really is. Or it’s okay not to know the absolute perfect way to do something because you’re always going to get better. You’re going to discover new ways to solve problems, and you’re going to get better and better. But the process of getting better at things is that. It is simply that you have to do it. And so if you say to yourself, “Okay, well, I want to teach this thing, or I want to do this thing for somebody. I want to create a service around this. And I just think, you know, what if I’m wrong?” Well, you have to begin.
You will find ways that you are wrong. You will discover things that, you know, oh, this is a better way. And then, you’ll share them and integrate them with your business and your clients. That’s how it goes. You know, people will often say to me, “Dan, I saw something in a course you released three years ago, and now you’re saying this. What gives?” And I’m like, “What do you mean, what gives? I found a better way to do it. Wouldn’t you want to follow the person that constantly finds better and better ways to do something and shares them with you than somebody who’s doing the same thing, the same way they were three years ago?”
Now, now don’t get me wrong. If, if it’s still the right way and it’s still the best way, I’m not going to change it. But if I find a better way, I’m going to update my stuff. I’m going to show you a better way. And oh, that makes sense. You know? So that’s the thing, I probably am wrong on a ton of things, and I’ll find, in a year, I’ll find a better way to do those things. But so are you, right? There are things that you’re wrong with right now. And then you’ll find a better way.
And as a society and as a species, we move forward with that. In 500 years, it’s going to be the same thing. We’re going to be so much more advanced. We’re going to have so many discoveries that we don’t have today. And then, 500 years from that point, it’ll be the same thing. Those discoveries will make us look like idiots 500 years before that, just like that 500 year period made us look like idiots these days. Just like these days made all the people that thought the earth was flat look like idiots.
I mean, it’s just, you can’t sit there and say, “Well, I don’t want to move forward. I don’t want to start my business because there are things that I could be wrong.” You know, the process of, nobody’s ever going to be completely right. But what matters is that you’re constantly moving forward, and you take your clients with you. That’s what matters. And I promise you if you’re a client of mine or you’re considering becoming a client of mine at getclients.com, I promise you, as soon as we find better ways to do things, we will tell you, we will teach you.
We just discovered and refined a really awesome way to pick up tons of extra high ticket sales, it’s an organic method and integrates perfectly with ads, or you could do it by itself. And we’ve picked up a few extra sales a week from this, and it’s working really, really well.
You know, I didn’t use to have free Facebook groups. I did in the beginning, and then they were just a complete pain to manage. Well, I recently, probably about two weeks ago, figured out a way to have a Facebook group that’s low maintenance. That doesn’t have a bunch of people acting like idiots in there trying to argue and, you know, just steal each other’s clients and whatnot and generate sales from that. Keep the group small, keep it highly engaging, high, super high quality. And for the most part, automate that process. And so we’re filming a video, I think tomorrow, and we’re going to release it to our clients, everybody in our client so that they can make more money. Right. And that’s not currently in our program.
So as I figure out better ways and I experiment, and that’s the thing I’m always experimenting. That’s why, you know, be very careful not to copy me or others when you see us do something. Because a lot of times, it could be experimentation. I just tried four things in the past 30 days that I’ve never tried before. Three of them didn’t work out. One of them did, we’re sharing the one with our clients, and I’ve already seen other people who aren’t clients try to copy and implement the three things that didn’t work. And I just sit there and laugh. Cause I’m like, you know if you would just become a client, you’d see behind the curtain, not guess what’s behind the curtain, and then just continuously run your business into the ground because you’re just running around blind.
So but that’s the thing, is you’re always going to get better. So don’t worry about that. And don’t worry about finding the person who’s right or wrong. It’s the people that constantly move forward and constantly improve you want to be with. And that’s how you should be. So hope this was helpful.
And don’t forget, you can visit getclients.com. We have a lot of free information on there to help you grow your business. As well you can apply to become a client, and we’ll help you scale your business to the moon personally. So hope you enjoyed this episode. I’ll see you in the next one.
