On today’s episode Russell talks about one of his favorite shows, The Profit, and why you should be watching it. He also talks about how he got Marcus Lemonis from The Profit to speak at Funnel Hacking Live.
Here are a few fun things in this episode:
So watch below to see what show Russell is obsessed with right now and why you should be too.
Good morning, good morning, everybody. Welcome to my home. I know we’re Periscoping at a kind of an unusual time today, but I’m in the middle of watching a show actually. Some of you guys know the show, So I wanted to come say hi to you guys and make sure you guys are all watching it.
This morning I woke up, and I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t watch TV when things are on usually because I got a lot of stuff happening, I’ve got five kids, I’ve got a million things happening, and so I Tivo … we don’t actually use Tivo, but we all call it Tivo, but we record all of our favorite shows, and this week, guess what I missed. I missed The Profit, so I’ve been watching this morning, and I was watching, I thought, I should probably jump on and say hi to everyone because there’s a really important reason.
First off, how many of you guys have seen The Profit or you like The Profit? If you haven’t seen it, give me double taps fast as you can. Faster, faster, faster, faster. How many of you guys have never heard of The Profit before? If you never heard of it type in, I don’t know, I don’t know what that is. The Profit is the best show on TV, by far. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Shark Tank, right? Shark Tank they come in, people do a deal and then it kind of ends, you don’t know what happens.
With The Profit, this show’s way better. This dude’s name is Marcus Lemonis, and by the way, he’s speaking at our next event, so that’s one of the reasons I wanted to show you guys this. The show’s on CSNBC, and what he does is he comes into a business who’s struggling, and he’ll walk through the business, look it over, and say, “Okay, I’ll give you $500,000 for 35% equity in the business.” Then people say, “Yes,” he shakes their hand, he’s like, “Oh, but the rule is I’m in charge for the next 10 days, the next month,” or whatever.
He’ll come in and he’s completely in charge, and he’ll come in there and he’ll just thrash the business, he knocked down walls, changed logos and branding, fire their mom and their employees, and the entrepreneurs are freaking out because their whole world just got rocked. Then he comes and changes their whole business, and half the time the entrepreneurs screw him over because he doesn’t do contracts, he shakes their hand and then gets to work and half the times he changes their world. It’s amazing. It’s starting now, I think it’s been 3 seasons, but if you haven’t seen it, go to hulu.com and search “The Profit” and you can watch all the first 3 seasons of it which is kind of cool.
That’s what you guys should do this weekend, if you’re not hanging with your kids, you should be watching The Profit, there’s nothing better. It is the best TV show right now, by far, a million times over, it’s actually worth watching, it’s worth having your kids watch, it’s worth watching. Even my wife, who doesn’t like business at all, she’s into it. Hulu, isn’t it Hulu, H-U-L-U I think. Hulu’s where, how you have all the shows you missed on TV, you can watch them later.
What I wanted to talk about, not only do I love this show, I wrote a check for a tiny fortune, I don’t think I’m allowed to say how much it was, but it was just shy of 6 figures, to have this man, right here, come and speak to you. It’s costing me not a little bit of money, it cost me insane amounts of money, in fact it cost me more than almost any of my employees for him to come and speak to you, and so, I need you guys to be there because it’s going to really, really important. If you don’t have your tickets yet to Funnel Hacking Live, just got to funnelhacking.com and get your tickets.
Again, it cost me just shy of $100,000 to have him come speak to you, your ticket cost, right now, we have a special deal going on where you can get 2 tickets for $1,000. You and your friend, you and your spouse, you and your business partner, bring 2 people for the price of one. That will be going away soon, right now I’m just trying to cover the ticket cost so I can finish writing the check for Marcus Lemonis. That’s what’s happening so if you don’t have your tickets yet, now is the time to go get it. Just go get it, you guys, funnelhacking.com. It will sell out, we sold out last year, about 30 days early and people were going nuts. We got people angry at me, I didn’t realize this, because the Russell in me, I’d be like, “Oh, yeah, just come sit on the floor, it’s cool.”
Turns out there’s fire marshals, and I didn’t know this til our last event, and we had people who came and they wanted to come in the room and we couldn’t because the fire marshal was there. They have rules and we can get shut down, so there are people who wanted to come who … I think we had over 100 on the waiting list, but people actually showed up that were waiting for someone to not show up so they could get in the door and we couldn’t do it because the fire marshal yelled at me. This one will sell out, this one’s way cooler, we have this dude right here speaking, so what you should do, because if you’re honestly, you’re like, “I don’t know who that guy is,” go to hulu.com, H-U-L-U, search for “The Profit” and go watch the first 3 seasons, and you will be obsessed, and so it’s important.
No, we cannot do live stream, in fact, in this contract, I can’t even record this, his presentation. It will not be recorded, we cannot live stream it, we cannot record it, so if you’re not there, you don’t get to see it and I wish I could record it, in fact I tried 3 times in the contract to get him to let me record it and he said, “No,” all 3 times. There will be no cameras, no audio, no nothing, so this is a once in a lifetime shot. For those of you guys who are saying, “Oh, Russell, I don’t live in America, I can’t get there,” that’s not a good excuse. I paid 6 figures to have him come talk to you, you can spend 1,000 bucks, 5,000 bucks, whatever it takes to fly here, and hang out, and be part of it because it’s going to be amazing.
Plus you’re going to be around over 1,000 other funnel hackers, it’s going to be amazing, so if you go to funnelhacking.com, you can see some of the speaker lineup, some of the people, but basically everyone inside of Clickfunnels who’s anyone, anyone who’s making money funnel hacking is going to be there, and you should be there. His name is Marcus Lemonis AKA The Profit. Go watch the show, you guys will love it, and that’s what I got. Right now, I still got 2 for 1 tickets, so grab you, grab a partner, share it and it’ll be awesome.
I know I’ll be scoping more often, I had a tough week last week so I didn’t have a chance to do it. All right guys, that’s it, go get your ticket, I’m going to go back and finish watching the show and we’ll talk to you guys soon. If you had fun today, give me double tap, if you’re coming to the event, give me double tap, Justin said, “the best event I went to last year.” Thanks man, this is going to be twice as good. It’s going to be amazing. All right, I’m going back to … I’m not going to bed, I’m going to watch this, I got too many kids, I can’t sleep. 6:00 a.m. they’re jumping on you, waking you up. Talk to you guys soon, bye.
