Banks are willing to lend us credit cards.

With these credit cards, our purchasing power increases. We are able to purchase the things we want, as long as we pay the bank back. But these credit card companies also incentivize us to purchase more with bonuses and gifts. So the question becomes: how can we use these free perks to pay off our credit cards?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, Stephen Liao teaches us how to sift through the world of credit card perks to be able to do just this. Stephen dropped out of Stanford to figure out the credit card game just a year ago, and today he has a credit-limit that exceeds $3 million spread across 220 different credit cards. If he’s not flying first-class, he’s on a private jet. And if he’s not staying at the Waldorf Astoria, he’s at the Ritz-Carlton. Tune in today to learn his secrets on building a good credit score!

“Essentially, it’s legal money laundering. You pay off your credit card with cash equivalence, get your sign up bonus, and then pocket the $150.” - Stephen Liao

“Humans aren’t really logical. They just think they are.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We get stuck in our routine.

It’s inevitable that between a full-time job, demands at home, and extra-curricular activities, we can become robotic as we tend to each commitment and obligation. This predictable behavior can feel comfortable and yield a healthy paycheck, but if we’re not careful, we can become confined by it.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing interruption patterns. In our society of comfort and predictability, our days become clones of the previous. In order to break the norm, we must seek out experiences and wakeup calls that interrupt our traditional modes of thinking. When we do this, we can induce that growth and change we have always wanted. Suddenly, we are starting the business that’s been sitting in the back of our head instead of talking about it.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to go towards the interruption patterns in your life, so you can start your path to financial freedom!

“Not being connected to the natural cycles that we evolved to be in is the biggest problem.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We are stuck in our bubbles.

In the modern world, we get trapped in the sterile nature of highly industrialized life. From working in an office to sleeping in an apartment, our days are spent in air-conditioned units, away from the natural environment we evolved to be in.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the way of the Amish people. By understanding their methods of living, we can tap into their secrets for happiness, and apply those to our lives. Tune in to this episode to learn how to approach your day-to-day in this most natural way, so you can connect with your evolutionarily built hardwiring.

“I know a lot of companies send emails as a brand. That’s a mistake. You should actually send it as a person.” - Alex Mehr

A website is useless without traffic.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful the design is. If nobody is landing on the site, then you’re unable to sell your product or service. And furthermore, you cannot refine the site to make it most optimized for purchases.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are continuing last week’s conversation about online marketing with Dr. Alex Mehr. He is the CEO of MentorBox, an online book subscription service. In the past, he has run online businesses that have done over $1 billion in revenue, like the online dating website Zoosk. Tune in to learn his online marketing tips, so you can implement similar strategies to drive traffic to get customers to purchase your product or service.

“When you’re optimizing for link-clicks—a lot of time you will end up with inferior traffic.” - Alex Mehr

(click to tweet)

Points to Keep In Mind

  • For video marketing, create videos under 1 minute for Instagram
  • Identify your dimensions or variables before testing your thesis
  • To sell higher price-point items, sell lower-price point items to have customers enter sales funnel
  • Optimize your websites to purchase or add to cart
  • People are making buying decisions based 100% off emotions
  • Use familiar faces on your advertisements to build page authority
  • Bombard a specific geographical region with ads and then extrapolate insights to the entire country
  • Try to put $.50 of every $1 of return back into marketing efforts
  • Do not test for the one winning ad; different ads resonate with different people
  • If you have a hook that works, repeat it over and over again
  • Optimizing for link-clicks or impressions will send inferior traffic for potential purchase
  • Play with different backgrounds on your ads
  • Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Pre-Suasion

“If you are a master marketer, you will not be broke for the rest of your life.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

Marketing is noise.

But great marketing cuts through that noise and speaks to the consumer in ways that other products do not. That’s why a great product needs great marketing. Without the proper messaging, the product will never reach the public and remain on the shelves inside the factory.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to be a master marketer. Whether it’s creating content that immediately hooks the audience or using Facebook and Instagram ad platforms, this conversation will help no matter what industry or product you are marketing. Tune in to learn these strategies, so you can apply them to your product or service.

“I hope your cholesterol is high because high cholesterol is associated with living a longer time and being smarter.” - Ben Greenfield

(click to tweet)

Every year there’s a new diet.

And with enough publicity, we will latch onto whatever promise it preaches. The unfortunate truth is that no one diet will fix our problems. Health comes from a combination of diet, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle. When we combine all of these forces, our body will respond in the positive direction.  

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to assess our cholesterol and other blood-related metrics with Ben Greenfield. This is Part 2 of our conversation with the immersive journalist. Ben has written articles for Men’s Health and other widely known publications about his experience with the latest supplements, injections, and surgeries. From stem cells to high-intensity training, Ben gathers a unique vantage point from subjecting his body to this array of tests and experiments. Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to best navigate the often confusing health landscape!

  • High cholesterol is associated with living a longer time and being smarter
  • You don’t want high cholesterol in the presence of high hemoglobin or H1C
  • Glucose can adhere to cholesterol particles
  • The problem with the ketogenic diet is the lack of fiber

“My telomere length has shown that my biological age has dropped from 37 to 20.” - Ben Greenfield

(click to tweet)

Aging is no fun.

But it’s an inevitable part of life, right? Well, as science evolves, technologies are brought to the public that can in fact reverse aging. Whether it’s stem cell therapy or NAD injections, the consumer now has options to bend space and time.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the power of these technologies with Ben Greenfield. Ben is an immersive journalist who takes it upon himself to try out these supplements, injections, and surgeries himself. From his vantage point, we learn firsthand what is involved through this process. Listen to today’s episode to learn about Ben’s experience, so you can be an informed consumer if you choose to try out any of these methods.

“Nothing is going to change quickly until you have someone walk you through it.” - Tai Lopez

(click to tweet)

We think we can do everything ourselves.

But the reality is that even if we can, it is almost always not the most efficient road to success. Whether it’s building a business or learning a new skill, shouldering the entirety of what’s in front of you will present more obstacles than had you sought out a guide or mentor.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the power of mentorship. When we put ourselves in the company of successful people, our brains turn on their natural learning mechanism: osmosis. We pick up their habits, start thinking how they think, and learn how to navigate problems as swiftfully as they do. Listen to today’s episode to learn how to find these mentors and absorb their knowledge, so you can reach the heights they find themselves on!

“Machiavellianism is when people pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy.” - Dr. David Buss

(click to tweet)

We are all flawed.

But instead of trying to fix our own issues, we point the flaws in other people. This is an inescapable part of the human condition; it’s easier to look outwards than it is to look inwards.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss, to discuss how to fix ourselves. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains the mechanics behind human psychology.

  • Conscientiousness is diligence, prudence, organization, and perfection
  • High psychopathy scores are void of empathy and impermeable to learning how to improve
  • Entrepreneurs score the worst on dark triad tests
  • Narcissism is tied to creativity and intelligence

“The easiest money-maker and best service to offer is paid ad management (PPC).” - Neil Patel

(click to tweet)

Posting engaging content to social media comes easy to the digital native.

But many business owners today don’t know how to use the platforms. That void is the opportunity for the tech-savvy generation. We can package our photography and tweet skills into a social media marketing agency and provide value to those who need our help.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Neil Patel. Neil is a New York Times Bestselling Author, and Entrepreneur magazine named him a Top 10 Marketer. In this discussion, he covers all things related to social media: how to cold-email a CEO, what websites to use when trying to lock in high-paying clients, how much to charge your clients when first starting out. To be successful in business today, you need to know online marketing inside and out, and that’s what we’re teaching you on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show!

“Email the investors. They’re the guys who write the check. They’re the guys that say hire this guy.” - Neil Patel

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Recently-funded startups get pressure from investors to spend money to make the next Uber. Use Crunchbase news to find which ones just received their money
  • Most business owners don’t know how to use social media.
  • Solicit business by explaining your value in a video
    • Point out that you can do the job for cheaper than what the job posting offers
  • Craigslist over Indeed.com if you’re just beginning to seek out clients online
    • Those businesses are smaller and more willing to take you on
  • When pitching your services via email - email both the CEO and the investors with where you think the company is messing up and how you can fix it
  • The easiest money-maker and best service to offer is paid ad management (PPC)
  • Google AdWords, Facebook Support Center, and YouTube is the new ad-school
  • Start with small adjustments, like slightly improving the banner image on a Facebook page
  • Charge a flat fee plus a percentage of spend
