“People will do anything for those who encourage their dreams, justify their failures, allay their fears, confirm their suspicions, and help them throw rocks at their enemies.” Blair Warren (Expert Secrets – Russell Brunson)
Russell Brunson is a name and face I’ve seen plastered all over the internet for a long time. I’ve known a little bit about his company, ClickFunnels, but only to the degree that it’s an online marketing company.
Recently he caught my attention with a great hook. It said, “What would I do if I lost it all?” That got me curious and took me right into his funnel. The next thing I know, I’m signed up for the One Funnel Away Challenge.
As an entrepreneur I love to hear the stories of other entrepreneurs. I love hearing how they got started, where they’ve failed and where they’ve succeeded. So this is what got me excited about the One Funnel Away Challenge.
Here’s how Russell explained the challenge:
Recently, I asked 30 of my ‘Two Comma Club’ members (those who have generated over $1 Million+ inside their ClickFunnels funnel) a very loaded question…
“You Suddenly Lose EVERYTHING…
You lose all your money, along with your name and reputation, and only have your marketing know-how left.
You have bills piled high, and people harassing you for money over the phone.
Plus, you have a guaranteed roof over your head, a phone line, an internet connection, and a ClickFunnels account for only one month.
You no longer have your big guru name, your following, or JV partners. Other than your vast marketing experience, you’re an unknown newbie.
What Would You Do?
Day 1 To Day 30) If You Knew You Only Had ONE FUNNEL To Make Back Your Millions?”
Each of them replied to my email with a brilliant detailed 30-day plan of what they’d do to get back on TOP.
They broke it down day-by-day…
“Day 1, I’d do this… Day 2, I’d do this… Day 3, I’d do this…”
Each of them laid out a complete 30 day battle plan to get their business back on track…starting back at “square one” with:
No Traffic…Running Errands…
And No Funnel…
The “30 Days” book is a GIANT 550 page hardcover book of ALL their compiled battleplans (Day 1 through Day 30).
30 chapters… 30 action plans…
You can actually flip through the pages day-by-day, and SEE the “big picture” of their ONE FUNNEL plan laid out right in front of you!
You can HOLD it in your hands…
You can page through, and reference it as you try out new business ideas…
You can highlight key ‘a-ha’ moments’ as you read, and make notes in the margins…
If you’re starting from scratch (or starting again), with no name, no reputation, no list, no money, no traffic, and no product…
The One Funnel Away Challenge is what I would do, from Day 1 to Day 30, if I lost everything, and had to create ONE FUNNEL to get back on track!
Now that is something that gets my attention. Wanting to hear all those stories excites me. I love reading autobiographies to see how different people built their businesses. But this one is unique! 30 successful entrepreneurs walking you through a day by day plan of what they would do if they had to start over again.
I spent the $100 to join the One Funnel Away Challenge. I’m a week into it and I can definitely tell you that I’m not disappointed. I have learned a lot about marketing, sales and funnels. It’s not just another course that you may or may not use the things you are taught. From day one you are taking action and creating your business. But I’ll tell you what. If I had spent the $100 and only got the 550 page “30 Days” book, it would have been money well spent! This book is Golden! The things shared in it are invaluable!

Early in my career when I was a bank manager there were many things about my position that I enjoyed. I loved working with customers, analyzing their businesses to find the best solutions for them, and I loved coaching and mentoring my staff. Before I was in this position at the bank I had a manager who was a great coach to me. He mentored me well and taught me a lot about being a manager and a coach.
Throughout my career, coaching is one thing that I’ve continued to enjoy and today I love working with clients to help them work on their businesses, leadership and their personal lives. But whether I’m working with one of my clients, my own team or even the basketball team that I coach, there is one thing that drives me crazy.
What is it that drives me crazy?
It’s when something doesn’t work out because they didn’t do the things that I knew would work. It’s when my client, team or players don’t listen to me.
That is the reason that I’m writing this right now. Lets flip the situation around and put me in the client’s seat. Even though I’ve always loved coaching and leadership I’ve never done much in the way of writing or publishing. My coach has recently been talking to me about “finding my voice.” He wants me to start publishing on a regular basis, even if it’s only for my own benefit. He told me to write articles, blog, use Facebook Live, podcast, it didn’t matter. Just start doing something and share it somewhere.
Later when I was alone I sat down to my computer and thought about it. I understood what he was wanting and why it would benefit me. But my thought was that maybe journaling would be good enough. I would do all the writing, I just wouldn’t publish it anywhere. But then I put my coaching hat back on and thought about it some more. From a coaching perspective, I know why he wants me to do it. I also know as a coach how I would feel if I asked one of my clients to do this but they didn’t.
As a client, team member or player, if you want to grow and benefit from what your coach can do for you, you need to be all in. You need to do the things you are asked to do, even if it’s hard. Sometimes the task isn’t what you learn the most from. It’s the discipline of going through with the task that is the real teacher.
Once in a while you start reading a book that opens up a new world for you. That is what happened to me with the last book I read.
Another season of basketball has gone by in a flash. My son, Daxon, played for American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek, Arizona. He had a good season and grew as a player. I’m looking forward to watching him develop more over the coming years. His dedication and work ethic are going to open up opportunities.
Struggle is not optional – it’s neurologically required: in order to get your skill circuit to fire optimally, you must by definition fire the circuit sub optimally; you must make mistakes and pay attention to those mistakes; you must slowly teach your circuit. You must also keep firing that circuit – i.e., practicing – in order to keep myelin functioning properly.
I listened to Ed Mylett’s interview with Charlie Rocket today and loved it. Charlie’s story is so interesting and motivational. From discovering Travis Porter, launching Two Chainz to inspiring Nike’s recent Kaepernick commercial. At 5’8″ and 305lbs he decided he was an athlete and ten months later completed the Iron Man competition. He’s brilliant, he’s a thinker. He teaches so much. I just wanted to share the interview for others to be able to watch.
“The second reason deep practice is a strange concept is that it takes events that we normally strive to avoid – namely, mistakes – and turns them into skills. To understand how deep practice works, then, it’s first useful to consider the unexpected but crucial importance of errors to the learning process.” – Daniel Coyle
