The Tai Lopez Show (entrepreneurial )

I spoke at Harvard University last week and it was an extremely humbling experience.

Not everybody gets to speak at the top university in the world.

Yet, leading up to my talk in Cambridge, all I could think about was the fact that I myself was a college dropout.

And make no mistake about it, college dropouts are foreign to Harvard.

Between Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Damon and others, Harvard’s dropouts have been more successful than most other colleges' graduates.

Which leads to a question that I am always asked.

“Tai, should I go to college?”

In the video I’ll explain how you should really approach college.

And when should you get a degree versus when you should drop out, or skip it altogether.

What's the secret behind your next creative breakthrough or million dollar idea? How about doing a 'book blitz'. In today's podcast episode I will explain why the average person's reading style is holding them back from their next big idea. Most people only read one book at a time which they often never get through. With the idea of doing a 'book blitz' you will not only get through more books, but you'll be learning from a lot more amazing people. I often ask others who are uncertain about my book blitz method whether they would rather have one amazing consultant to their business' or have six? Although it is possible to have too many cooks in the kitchen, the answer undoubtably is always yes. Treat your reading the same way. Learn from an abundant of great authors instead of getting stuck on one book.

Here at Knowledge Society Headquarters I spoke with Coppy Holzman, founder of Webvan.com. Webvan was an online grocery business during the Dotcom era, in 1998, that became a billion dollar company by 1999. After the Dotcom bubble bursted in 2000, Coppy's company Webvan went out of business. He has since recovered with new businesses, many of which include Charitybuzz.com and Prizeo.com.


Get more done in life. I get messages and snaps all the time from people who can't seem to shake procrastination; or just don't have enough energy to get everything that they want done. First, I ask them how is their diet. Because if you aren't eating well then you will never have enough energy. Secondly, I say it's all about having "mind over matter". You have to have drive. And sometimes you have to mind trick yourself to having more energy.


You know what I found with the most successful people in the world? They're always the nicest one. But most people who object to things, can never give a real reason and they just say, "I don't like that". The world is full of people focused on the wrong thing. Focus on the right thing and change the world in your own way.

My first mentor Joel Salatin came to visit. He's written 10 books. He has a busy life so I asked him how he found the time to write so many books. He gave me his "secret" formula.


At every point when you have something to sell you have two basic kinds of people who you can work with:

Prospects and paying customers.

Paying customers buy stuff from you.

Prospects are people who are somewhat interested in your product.

You must be able to convert prospects into customers to make money.

If you know how to take the 7.3 billion people and turn them into prospects or a lead you are going to get a hell of a lot more people in the paying category.

Remember, impatience = poverty.

Most people walk up to the 7.3 billion in the world and impatiently try to get them to buy.

People need to see your brand 7 times before they want to buy.

Heres a simple way to get more leads:

1. Ask people for their email on your website

2. Be good at it. To be good it has to be mobile optimized. It has to look good. There has to be an incentive it.

3. Know how to follow up

One my tricks when I used to have nightclubs was to get email addresses.

When people first saw the Lamborghini ad they thought it was weird. But over time people started to watch the ad and say, "Oh, this guy is telling me to read more books."

For me the better I have gotten at this, the more money I've made.

My friend Anthony made this tool to get more email leads.

This guy has made lots of money online.

Remember I said you have to be good at asking for emails?

Anthony has a webinar that you can watch to learn the 3 things to help you build more opt-ins.

Remember, cynics are always broke.

All the money is on the cutting edge.

Make war with a multitude of councilors.

I look at everything now with open eyes and I'm always willing to experiment.

People are so paralyzed by inaction, so they miss opportunities.

If you want to do big things don't regret a lot of stuff.

You need buyers, this is key.

Having a Snapchat or Instagram does not mean people will buy.

It's the transition that gets them to buy.

How do you get someone from Instagram into a sequence where they get to know you?

To make a lot of money you have to know how to do a lot of things.

This is one of those simple things you must know.

For some of you this is going to be the most important decision you have ever made.

For some of you it won't.

But remember a mind full of conclusions has no room for expansion.

I have never met someone who said, "Bro, I went broke because I invested in my own brain."

Only by investing will you acquire more wealth.

There are no get rich quick schemes, there are only skills.

How do you build skills?

Train.

How do you train?

Spend time with people who have done it before.

You need pieces from everyone.

A little from me, a little from Anthony, a little from Warren Buffet, a little from Elon Musk.

This is what has worked for me.

Of course you have to apply skill to it.

The purpose of life is to win and bring others along with you to win.

Just like my mentors took me along the ride with them I want to take you with me.

Let me know if this helps you?

Everyone will tell you that you have to start businesses from scratch. They don't get the full story. Expand your money game by understanding the language of money. And one of the things in the language of money is understanding how to purchase pre-existing assets.
