Today’s guest, Doug Ottersberg, is a business and life strategist whose life mission is to be a difference maker for difference makers. After working side by side with his wife to build multiple businesses, Doug realized that he was struggling to bridge the gap between his desire to succeed for himself and his family and what he really wanted deep down inside. This realization led him to make the decision to invest in income-producing assets so he could pursue a life of design, rather than one of maintenance.

Now Doug consults with growth-minded companies, owners, presidents, entrepreneurs, professionals, businesses, and teams to help them bridge the gap from frustration to a better quality of life. His inspiring journey from feeling “stuck” to finding purpose and financial freedom not only helped him discover the key that eventually launched him over that gap, but also helped him uncover a talent he didn’t know he had to help others do the same. Listen in to hear the lessons he's learned along the way.

Jerry is the founder and president of Cornerstone Financial Services. He's also the host of Smart Money Radio, where he talks about economics, real estate, and finance in the U.S. and around the world.

Jerry and I talk about what the incoming Trump presidency might look like for real estate and the economy as a whole. He offers some predictions about what the stock market and interest rates in the U.S. will be doing in the next 18 - 24 months, and we discuss the ripple effects on other markets in Europe and elsewhere. Jerry also offers his thoughts on real estate investment, and whether or not real estate will take a hit anytime soon.

Dr. Phelps' talent in practice management is obvious: in his first seven years of practicing dentistry, his revenue grew tenfold. After expanding from two to four locations, Christopher and his team eventually scaled back down to two practices to focus on something that might sound trivial - converting phone calls to actual patients. This led to the birth of Christopher's Call Tracker ROI program, the success of which we discuss in depth.

Christopher shares some of his backstory, including those early years of mega-growth at his practices. He then discusses his entrepreneurial ventures and how he's managed to help numerous practices improve their conversion rates and retain good quality clients. We also discuss his work with the legendary Robert Cialdini, who has been Christopher's mentor for the past year.

John's sales tactics can be applied by anybody that has to sell products or services to customers who may not always be receptive. Instead of making the seller or the customer feel trapped and uncomfortable, John's selling techniques focus on advising buyers - whether they be consumers, patients, or otherwise - on their best options. The process is about two-way communication, rather than constant pitching.

We talk about how John became an expert in sales despite not fitting the "typical" salesperson personality expectations. John also discusses the interconnected nature of sales and marketing, and why it's so important to make sure your marketing tactics and sales process complement each other. We also touch on the relevance of sales for professionals in private practices and how they can apply John's hard-won advice.
