Business Outlaws – James Bonnet pt 1: The Ultimate Hack to Reprogramming your Brain

Everybody who’s ever seen a movie is familiar with the Hero’s Journey. But you don’t actually have to watch any movies to see the Hero’s Journey in action…because it’s literally programmed into your DNA.

In this episode of Business Outlaws, special guest James Bonnet joins BigMike and Chris “Bulldog” Collins to talk about the most fundamental part of self-transformation: understanding the archetype of the Hero’s Journey and rising above the veil between your lower self and your higher self. Only once you’ve ascended to this higher plane can you see yourself — and all the tricks assholes use to try to manipulate you — objectively. Every human mind is wired to respond to it, but only a small percentage of us actually understand and use it. Here’s your opportunity to join that small percentage.

“The Hero’s Journey is the single most powerful blueprint that I could have possibly learned in life,” BigMike says as he discusses how his experience at one of Bonnet’s seminars expanded his personal toolbox and made him better equipped to face challenges in business and in his personal life. “Now, after you face your darkest hour, you bring fire back to the village,” he explains. Don’t miss this deeply philosophical episode that will permanently alter how you deal with the challenges you face.

Business Outlaws – Damon Dash – Fuck the Money Guys, They Have No Soul – 41

How do you make money without selling out? That’s what Damon Dash — music producer, entrepreneur, co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, and contributor to memoir Culture Vultures — came to the studio to discuss with BigMike, Chris “Bulldog” Collins and host Jayme Foxx on this episode of Business Outlaws.

“I gave the culture a voice, I still fight for it, and I made ’em rich!” Dash says as he vents his frustrations with the music industry, millennial mindsets, what people imagine goes into building a successful business versus what really goes into it, and the “money guys” who prey on artists to profit off their talent. “A money guy buys shit,” he continues, “a good, cool motherfucker builds it.”

The conversation becomes heated when Damon accuses BigMike of working with the money guys and being a traitor to his industry. “It’s about me. I personally want to see how far I can climb that fucking ladder,” BigMike shoots back. When Damon asks BigMike to explain how he gauges his success, the conversation turns to figuring out what really matters, your role in relation to what you create, and ultimately, why you chose the path you’re on.

Business Outlaws – David Garfinkel: Branding Doesn’t Sell Stuff. Here’s What Does – 40

There’s marketing, and then there’s sales. They’re not the same thing, but one without the other is sure to lead to failure for your company. On this episode of Business Outlaws, David Garfinkel, renowned author and copywriting coach who personally mentored BigMike, breaks down what effective direct response marketing is and how it works.

You can’t just expect people to see your product and buy it. You need to show them why they need it, which is why you need to use direct response marketing. And to use direct response marketing effectively, you have to dig deep into your target audience’s psyche to see your product from their point of view.

Garfinkel shows BigMike and Chris “Bulldog” Collins how this works by using BigMike’s Blends as an example. He introduces a generic-sounding, ineffective ad that touts the pre-roll as “bigger than big, Mikey-er than Mike, blendier than blend,” and then immediately contrasts it with an ad that hooks the target audience of BigMike’s Blends by weeding out anybody else who might read the copy. If you’re marketing your product to everybody, you’re doing it wrong. Marketing directly to your niche audience is how you make sales.

So, how do you get into your audience’s head to figure out how to market to them? As Collins points out, “What people tell you and what they do can be the world apart.” Tune in to find out how to get your buyers’ uncensored, unscripted perspectives.

Business Outlaws – “Boston” George Jung – How much money is enough? – 39

How much money is enough to satisfy you? If you had to choose a dollar amount that would make you say “I’ve got what I need, I can retire happy now,” what would that dollar amount be?

That’s what BigMike asks “Boston” George Jung in this episode of Business Outlaws. It’s not an easy question to answer, and it’s not something most people ever really think about. But when he was facing jail time and the prospect of losing everything he’d built, BigMike asked himself that very question. And in his years as one of the most prolific cocaine smugglers in the world, chronicled in the Johnny Depp film Blow, Jung faced this same dilemma.

“I was a thrill junkie,” guest “Boston” George Jung tells BigMike and Chris “Bulldog” Collins in this episode of Business Outlaws. Jung’s no stranger to immeasurably huge financial success and the dangerous realities that come with pursuing it. You’ve seen Blow and heard Jung’s name, but here’s your only opportunity to listen to him tell his story in his own words. It’s not just flying planes over the border and dropping tons of cocaine and sitting at Pablo Escobar’s table; it’s a story of self-reflection and evolving perspectives on who we are and why we do the things we do. “We’re all here for a reason,” he tells our hosts. Listen now to hear Jung’s reason.

Business Outlaws – Mike Tyson On What It Takes To Be A Champion – 38

To become the youngest heavyweight boxing champion ever, Mike Tyson had to be more than a badass boxer. He also had to be a boxer audiences wanted to buy tickets to see battle it out in the ring. Do you have a persona that consumers want to buy from?

BigMike and Chris “Bulldog” Collins both identify as introverts, but you wouldn’t know it from their public personas. “People wanna see excitement,” Tyson explains as the trio talk creating alter egos and living up to the personalities we construct for ourselves. “I created who I am,” Tyson continues, “I am Mike Tyson.”

Establishing a persona is just one way of mentally preparing for success. Another is repeatedly playing out your success in your mind, over and over again until it feels natural, much like an athlete does drills in the gym to be faster and stronger. “Most people think there’s an easy button — ‘Mike Tyson, he’s a champ and I’m gonna be that,’” BigMike says. “They have no fucking clue the amount of time, effort, dedication and work that goes into that.”

How badly do you want to be a winner? What sacrifices are you willing to make? After Tyson explains the grueling training regimen he started 12 years old, he drops a wisdom bomb on BigMike and Chris that sums up the different mentality champions have compared to everybody else.
