The presenting sponsor of rise is Zapruder, Zipper Cretur this artist way to higher. One of the cruellest things that I get to see as part of my job is the manifestation of the product or products that I dreamed out. and created and figured out how to do like. So many of you as a business owner, you get these ideas in your head and it is incredible to get to watch them come to fruition.
And I started dreaming about one of our most popular products. The start today journal. I start dreaming about this. A couple of years ago I had been doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things and I'm kind of put them together into one daily practice, which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life, but I wrote them as if they had already happened there something really powerful about claiming a goal as if it's already done, and I rode down every day- and it was how I set my intentions and then I would post about it on social, and so many people are at what are you doing? What is that? Where do I get that journal? And I was like guys: it's not a journal, it's just a notebook, writing down the same thing every single day, but what I think is interesting
as business owners or creators, is often times in fact, most of the time, your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was like you guys. This is not a big deal, but it was, and people kept asking for, and I finally just thought what, if, turn this into a product, and I started to dream and plan, and I literally taped pictures wall of my office of what I dreamed that my journal would look like in the intention behind it. One of the covers to be really pretty, and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then, as you. complete at each journal. You'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life and we ve heard now- and I mean you knows- times? We messed up on the shipping, and sometimes we rest up on?
interior, but we failed our way to where we are today, which is the start today journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of peace. Oh so incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on Instagram and see. Hashtag start today journal and see people all over the world using this practice as away to aim in the direction of their dreams so If you are not familiar, and you want to check it out, you can go over to the Hollis code, dot com forward, slash shop and find All about my favorite practice turned my favorite product and, if you're, not anymore to buy.

If you feel, and by the way, if you're like Rachel, I watch Youtube every day. That's not enough. Sis, ok I'm talking about here is how do you feel like you're doing as the leader? How are you doing?

Fine answer. You know what I said about you at my lunch break bunch of liars in this room, so I said I was eating my oars though salad, Said they're not ready yet monotony To be honest, because no joking, when I ask your question to six thousand entrepreneurs about who knows their finances in now and only two hundred abuse sand, and say that you don't know your finances, your bullshitting me or yourself. It's real there is a zero percent chance that all six thousand people in this room, no right now what their cash flow is no right. Now what the balance sheet looks like no right now, what their piano and an I'm telling you it no matter how much money you can make. If you don't know how much money you have, if you don't know what you're overhead is it matters? So don't we

Finances one, is your Rachel Hollis Circa, two thousand and thirteen. no freakin idea. What's going on. ten is your Rachel Hollis today with an incredible financial adviser and a bad ass. The foe, ok. next day page twenty one keep on track in systems and rob that's that? One oh he's only really that creating systems and processes that improve business functionality and customer experience can you Kate, the thing that you are doing- the time every single time consistently forever
reset another way who came here at this conference and their businesses at us. And still until they get back yet you need some systems and processes. so I've been scrolling, the hashtag! That's what I do. I want to see what's going on with you guys in the amount of people who have used in scrap nothing wrong with this, but if using as the out of office. They're like I am, I will not be available until next Tuesday? because I am at rides conference, which is also a nothing wrong with that, but I'm telling you I make money twenty four today. The day we're making money, because we have systems and processes that make it possible that we have people that can replicate those that we can teach them. two like Tom was talking about this earlier. If you
someone else can do a thing that you're doing you have a business. You have a really stressful job. We need to work today How are your systems that thing people Are you writing a world class team that our throat inside of their position. Where I saw of winners, you are mighty team of wine. Yet I see you. I was you for so long you haven't seen yet when we get to this part of the teaching on day. Three take all the notes dude all the notes, and you will be miles ahead of the rest of us who, after learning in real time last question leadership are you consistently improving as the leader so that your business and your team can grow? One is no
in other words you're talking about ten, is, I am actually Jesus of Nazareth, I'm the greatest leader right, How do you do it only their ship right? Do you guys know about nobbler numbers? Ok, you can kill the music now son here is the fun part. Here is where you get to see your life unfold. One of my favorite things to do as a teacher is to take something that can be very calm. Located like all the parts of your business and you not knowing their so many things to improve. You don't even know where to start who knows what I'm talking about yeah so was mine, my favorite things. If you take this, we beg nebulous thing and break it down and something that you can see So now I want you to know that we all those of you who have been conference before you know what to do, but for the rest of you you're going to go see. I've been wielding the bottom at the bottom of page. Twenty one now want you to go through a list and what was our first.
Thank you right on our less it's the one. That's like it's like at one o clock right, and you see how you pretend than I can draw its all these different these these bit. Look. They pay, showed you My dream, like you, don't need a job that ok, so
whatever number you gave yourself mark in your little pie, chart up to that point in your we'll. So this person gave themselves a seven on you and then for products in service inexperience. Maybe they gave themselves a three concerns movies, and so they gotta go here so that you can get that one should go through the wheel and whatever number you marked in that little spot, I want you to feel sorry and acts in just popped out. I want you to fill up until that point. I know a pie chart guide that get a thank you take do if you see that
hang on your paper, you have, it feel that you have. It filled out issue yeah. What if that was the tire on your car. Jacked up tire right. who in fact tyre most but still and by the way it is because this is what helps you get to the next place, I'm going to take you through the foundations of our. Business and how we have done what we have done, but what is most important to me, I'm gonna, keep saying over and over is what do you do? On Monday, I saw one time like as a gift to myself. Thirty fifth birthday present I, by myself a ticket to a really fancy business comments. I always wanted to go to ten thousand dollars minimum to get the room I save up for years with huge deal. For me
I'm so excited. I got an I got. I got so much information, crazy information like I have not done one thing. I made out with my husband a lot for like four days. That was my gift that have not implemented one thing, because there are. so much information that I came. How can I was overwhelmed and then I just kept going orbiting get to that? I'm gonna get that would be my nightmare nightmare is that Get so much information, but you don't know what to do so. I'm gonna take you through the foundations of our business, but here's the easiest way to think of this. Best case scenario is your tire: just starts to even out. Ok, best case scenario is your tire just starts to even out. What's the what's the? What's, the smallest number that you have right now on your list, just shout out some of them: three fish. Okay, so let's say that this is the three right here,
what's the next number up, you have to shout it out of me, but look at your list, if your, if your smallest numbers three and your next number is let's say four then your goal is. I want to get all of these things to level, for does that make sense You can be so bomb marketing. This by the way, some people's business model so. bomb at marketing and sales, but your products is garbage, which means you're not going to be, and in business a year from now who track that So if you could go ok Mark, cells are killing it. But if I get just get products to the next lowest level, it will start to even out the tire gap Does that make sense great, keep that in mind. Let's keep one truck in this. I am assuming. This is not an audience its freaked out matter,
talking about money right, yeah cuz, while you want to know, is how do you make more about? How do you retain more of it? So I'll be super real with you guys, so it's like we have to be able to tell them. Exactly how we do what we do and here's the deal you do not have to follow this map, but it's a good There are a lot of different like for sure Tom. Does business in a different way for sure Ramsay does business in a different way for sure people You admired do business in a different way, but this is I do it gives me one more time, a son. not only is this how we do it, but this is the order of importance, the order of importance that we put it in okay. Now we're not come back to this, get your hearts ready when it
back. We have to start with the foundation of this moment. Whole damned thing there. We go. Ok. Actually this is the moment. I won't that it forgive me that I'm going on works but really excited, I ve never been able to teach us before on page forty. Six is a blank page, Everyone wanted to give this a fancy, nay, my team called it the foundations of six ass or some blah blah blah thing I wanted to call a business being dead. Because that's what this looks like to me, this Spain did. Ok. I didn't mean that like the seven layer times. You know what I'm talking about doesn't look like a delicious beat. You know It's gonna help you to remember. It's gonna help you to remember
An outlet explaining these thing, you're gonna, use page forty six to build your own version of this. So these are generic terms like products service experience right when you can feel that him with the thing that makes the most sent to you. If your light, hair salon, tax, accountant bakery you get, this you're gonna build your own being debt. Here's where we're starting we're, starting with you, we talked about this earlier today. Had everyone come in and speak on this idea, because you growing and learning matters first layer of your being did I liked is like Rome rose, Rita, refrain being here. You know we all have different opinions on what you layer, the bottom of a bean dip with right.
Who understands what I'm saying one thing: seven layer debt, this matters for this analogy. Thank you so this I want you to imagine this. You re fried beans and right about now is when someone in a button down shirt when This is what I paid for yeah. recycling beans with me for a minute. Have you ever made a seven layer debt. Could you put I Let us, as the base of Europe Indeed, you would never fur you're, not a monster. I cannot support the situation you are trying to build. You need some, weighty suddenly that six together, you ray fright being you, other reef, rightly.
you do These are just my best friends of Uk Adele. Thank you now. Ok, you, let's talk about you, five thing. Five things that are going to help you be a better leader who be honest, don't play Who scored less than five on this when they, when they still thank you for your honesty that are so real Also, my gosh yeah, so much you're gonna be fine. You can do this, isn't in your work books, so just find the notes page and write them down. I call this. Wages and are now. That sounds like I got an idea.
Yes, daisy is always welcome for ages, and these are the five things that are going. make the difference in you growing ever we whose therefore, These are also the things that I have learned over time. This is not did not like pop into the world this way, but I think that coming to terms and learning these items are what has made me successful, yeah the first aim. hiring can be time consuming, ceo, Italian Goldstein needed to hire match for her personalize matchmaking company three day rule, so she turned to our presenting sponsor, zipper, cruder and now you can try it recruited for free at super cool calm, slash rise,
as a female business owner. Tolerance is proud to run a business, that's powered by female professionals, but she said hard to find match for her business because it? such a unique range of specific skills before She tried zipper Kurt or tell I said she gets so many applicants it took for ever to weed through them and she wasn't getting the quality that she needed, but remember, zipper critter, so effective that four out of five employers who post Unzip recruiter, get equality candidate within the first day. So Like taller and tries it recruiter for free, my listeners can go to zip recruiter. Dotcom, slash rise, that's zip recruiter. Our com.

Out of ten couples preferred different mattress firmness. I know, like Dave likes it, firm mattress. I basically want to sleep on a cloud. One of the reasons that we have loved sleep number so much is because we can. adjust her own seat number setting? So if you ve never adjusted asleep number bed before you have an app on your phone and then you can go to more fun. That's like toward the number one hundred or like a sleeping on a car. like me: that's going closer to the number zero, an it adjusts and increments of five. So think these, is David sleeping on like sixty five and I'm sleeping on like thirty five, and we are happy and life is good, discover, smart, effortless, comfort with a sleep number three hundred and sixty smart bed. This is not a bed, it's proven quality sleep come in now and save up to six hundred dollars on select sleep number three, sixty smart beds for alone time, only at us
number store or sleep number dot com, slash rise. humility, humility,. Being humble. admitting that you don't know the answers to everything create see. I m the queen can ask any one of my team. You can talk to my husband about this. I am I will be sitting in the fanciest meetings. The most highfalutin big deal meanings.
I will be not even that important of a person there, the twenty people in the room in a talking so fast and I'm the one. That's like I'm. Sorry excuse me, what does that mean? I don't understand that word. What are you sitting out? Let me be really clear: if you were a client based business. If you want a client base business, you are not allowed to sit in the meeting and be like. I don't know that word tell me Google it under the table, like everybody else,. You ve done it, don't lie, you know, you ve done it Have you know you have to be a humble enough to admit that you do not know all the answers. This is especially important for those of you who are leaders who's ever worked for a boss or leader who was just knew everything there. They knew it all Dont, be them
I know that some somewhere along the way we ve been tricked into believing that we are supposed to know everything you are not supposed to know. Everything you are simple Delete well, you are supposed to leave with a servant's heart. You were supposed to have empathy. You were supposed to have vision. You were supposed to care about the people on your tv or not supposed to know. All of the answers, because if you right now think that you know everything you're in trouble, this world is moving too fast. Business is changing too much. You think that you know all the I know everything there is to know about the industry. Great go talk to taxi drivers nine years ago. Who knew everything that there was to know about the industry? Go to a hotel chains before Urban be happened, If you are not anticipating, what's gonna, put you out of business, don't worry, it will
That means that you wake up everyday, assuming that there is a better way, and it might not be your way, humility being humble. I literally wrote down the words. Stop fucking faking it. I wrote it down, I'm just say it: stop it stop gap, fake, fake confidence. standing and not knowing where taken another step fake, that stuff dont think that you know this Me for so many years pretending a business and because I have been where you are. I know that there are people in this room who are pretending business and they feel shame because may know in their hearts. They're not where they need to be there too, worried that everyone else is going to figure it out, because everybody knows them as this thing Don't get more instagram followers and if I don't have the optics that everyone thinking I'm so great, it's gonna fall apart.
When the reality is, if you just stopped, It and you are. humble enough to admit that you need some help. You wouldn't get the answers that would change your business so that you're not thinking anymore. You actually are that person do get that humility. The second thing you, oh well, that w went heart. Can you listen to music on and you don't move? That's on you y'all working hard, but let me be very clear, working hard on the right things. We're going to talk about this on Saturday.
If you have not read the book, the one thing by Gary Keller You need to write that one down in your book. You need to be working not on a to do list. You need to be working on the results that you are looking for, that Get that here, I'm minute just let you know right now, yet not the end of the day. Something funny starts to happen right about now. People start yawning. If you got a yawn, you better stop, drop and rolled in your chair like you, on fire? Do Let me see you yon. If I see you yon, I'm making everyone in this room to a five for three two one.
Be ready, they're actin, like they now, but someone's about doing on two seconds after I just said, and I will call you out, don't amber yourself. Working hard on the right things work heart hard on the right things, and you are going to hear some of the right things that you need to be working on while we're together. But I feel like we ve talked about this. What Tom talked about this and Trent talked about this, and I cannot stress enough. This is hard Who knows this is hard, this is hard and you gotta get high up on how hard it is. You got here, here's the thing that happens, so it's and when it's hard, you think that it's because there's something wrong with the way that you did it. You understand that
you think that when businesses hard your doing something wrong. and sometimes that's true, some of you we're doing some things wrong, but most Finally, this is just the price of admission. You didn't want an ordinary life. You want An extraordinary life you wanted something extra. You wanted something different. You are going to have to work for that and hears here's the south. I would literally, I should not talk Providum go into. I was at a conference recently and it was there who I am. grateful for the opportunity to travel around the world and speak on all these stages. But you don't always know who's gonna be on stage with you right, feminist books, you, you don't know, could be anyway and as back sage and this person, what just kept saying over and over and over that. If you.
Gave them five thousand dollars. They would make you a millionaire the busy There are like back of the room right now: five thousand dollars. You know what I was only gonna take ten people, but now I'm a jig three hundred and eighty seven five thousand dollars- and backstage like in the feed or position like no, no, no, no, no! No! No! No! No! cause. People are falling for. It has been at a conference like that Right you were there, oh God was that the worse. It was so bad and I was so mortified so mortified, because I knew that I had fans who came to see me and I'm gonna. Do goodness. Please do not. Let them think that I need even heard of this person. I'm freaking backstage and just kept going on and on and then I'm saying our just myself.
And we're texted each other, like all give have legal texts in your friend or your husband or whenever you're like all right, that's we're doing accede and then all of a sudden, I thought this is a gift from God. This moment is a gift from this is Gift from God, I'm in this right now as a gift from God, so I can see what you usually have to put up with. I was sitting back there and I was like this is why this is happening so that I can understand that you gotta conferences in someone tells you that There's a quick fix or a magic pill or an amount of money. You can pay to skip the line. It's not true, Because, even if, even if you had a product that went crazy, you had a service that went crazy and you put to the head of wine in terms of revenue. You are behind the gay in terms of process or systems or hr. Who knows what I'm talking about? There's no way to skip the wine this
Hard work: you are looking at so many years of me trying to get this right, which is why I know how to tell you the things that have gone. Please don't make these mistakes. This is gonna, be hard. You guys gonna be worth it also going to be hard and here's the thing that you need to know. I used to think that if I could just get to a certain revenue stream or for Just get to a certain number of employees, or if I could just get to a certain number of social media followers that I. Have to work as part. I'm telling you I work fine, times as hard today as ever have in my entire life. I just drive the nicer car. I and I love it. I
Love it, I absolutely love it. I love having a company, I love, building, a team. I love figuring out marketing. I look who I'm just curious. Did anyone come to this event, because these. Social, an add on social media I thought that you, like that's, not true Europe, one on stage speaking for hours. I know it's crazy, but we didn't have any one on our team who knew how so I watch Youtube. Videos for three days and you're not do face were GAD. How to do a link then add, and how to ride like two months ago,. dying? Are companies making so much money and we have all these employees- and I hope you by the books in watching me on sage, oh god,.
I hope it's not always like that. We have a new employees, she starts on my day. Her name's car lower, very excited. you know how I knew we needed a higher and employee. Goodbye. Guy. Do not get it. We do not think this is certainly going to be easy No joke and every More than five employs right, let me just for the rescue who don't know this. You think that having more employees is action and to make it easier Every day. new level, the devil. This game
get fired up in stock if you hate how hard this is for my prayers coming into this week, or my prayers was Lord. If there's someone in the audience who shouldn't be an entrepreneur, let them figure it out in this room. This is too hard not to love it.

What do we absolutely want to replicate in twenty? Twenty and then we're like what socked? How did we not show up what didn't work right? Who? What happened? What? What were the customer saying? What most p But will not do this very simple thing which would help them to level up in hundred different ways, because they don't like it. When people don't like that. Because they don't want to admit that they're wrong, because they don't want to admit that they don't know everything you wrap something big. You should just habit as part of your system, then processes to review
And ask yourself why and if you were working by yourself, you could just do that right, aged Open, a blank peace paper, W P S is the title right. Why this happen- and I dont mean why, like a will, the customers were mad because the lines were too long. That sounds like a why, but it's not really a why the why you're looking for is something that you have to dig deeper into the dig deeper into the. Why would be ok so do we need to set up? Do we need to put more money into this thing? Do we need to have food trucks do indeed like you to keep going.
I and the right of every six thousand people sometime, you guys guys selfishly refine side, but he and he still by the way that matters when you can't who psyche lessons person who has been who's been all the events.

Here's a problem, this why most people try anything. as I said, always have food trucks which, by the way, we're not allowed here, we tried that. Couldn't get a permanent. We tried ya but decisive, and they never would like yes- and there are people in this room who, just like all moored, oh no, they gave her feet back. Are you freaking kitty your feedback is law. That is how I serve you better Europe. We listened to your feedback, and people sent us an email and said put a ribbon in the journal. Lord Jesus put a ribbon in the journal, give us that ribbon and we were like
