Transcript of Podcast

Hey, it's Robert from Freedom Factory, and I want to talk to you about an entrepreneurial truth and what I call this is the myth of the million-dollar idea. The other day I was talking to a friend of mine and he was looking at our company and he said, man, I wish I had that idea. And I talked to him about the myth of the million-dollar idea.

And I said, that million dollar ideas don't exist. And he didn't understand what I meant. So then I asked him a question. I said, what's the difference between a million-dollar idea and $1 million? And he thought about it for a second and he said, well, I don't know. And I said, well, it's a million-dollar execution.

And the good news is million-dollar execution is a learnable, teachable skill. Now, it doesn't matter if you have a business brokerage like we do, or software companies or boat manufacturers or any of the types of companies that we've talked about in the past. The difference between that million-dollar idea and the million dollars is million-dollar execution. And I want you to think about that.

The great news is million-dollar execution. Is a learnable, teachable skill. All machines are the same. When we're building a machine, there's revenue, there's sales, there's marketing, there's infrastructure. You figure out what you need to do and you work on your business, not in it, and it doesn't really matter what kind of business it is. Now, if you learn how to build the machines, for example, let's say you have a sales problem. If you go out and read a How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, it's going to help you with your sales no matter what kind of business you're in, no matter how many businesses that you do.

So there's a set amount of entrepreneurial lessons and it's your choice. You can learn them fast or you can learn them slow. But I would figure out what your biggest strengths are and I would accentuate those and I'd figure out your biggest weaknesses and I would either hire to address those or I would work on acquiring the skills to be able to get a complete skill set there and be able to develop million-dollar execution, because once you have million dollar execution, you can change the world in so many ways. You can build a machine, any machine, and so I wouldn't get lost on the idea of $1 million idea or the myth of the million-dollar idea.

People say all the time, they say, I wish I thought of the pet rock. Well, it wasn't the pet rock. The person that started the pet rock understood million-dollar execution. And the good news is, so can you. If you have any questions about any of the things that we've talked about, why don't you give us a call it Freedom Factory. I'm Robert and we'll talk to you soon.
