Dave Woodward reveals how you can find out your super powers. How you can use your super powers to create a mass movement of people. He also cautions you to be careful of your own Kryptonite and how you can make sure to defeat the villains every time.
Speaker 1: 00:00 Welcome to funnel hacker radio podcast, where we go behind the scenes and uncover the tactics and strategies top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales, dominate their markets, and how you can get those same results. Here’s your host, Dave Woodward. Welcome back everybody, buddy.
Speaker 2: 00:18 Uh, this is gonna be a fun little podcast. This is about, uh, what’s your superpower? So just a few weeks ago we had our first round of inner circle and yesterday we just finished our last one. So a couple of weeks ago is when the avengers infinity war came out. And so we ended up taking everybody and was still in town to the vendors infinity war. It was kind of fun because we ended up talking about super powers and that the very next day we, and kind of what we’ve been starting with as far as anytime we started our inner circle meetings, Russell basically started off and say, so watch, introduce yourself, tell basically what your name is, but they don’t want to tell what’s your superpower and when, what do you mean? What’s your superpower? So that a lot of fun kind of going through this as far as trying to identify what is your superpower.
Speaker 2: 01:06 So first of all, understand that everybody has at least one or two or three or four or five different types of superpowers, but you got to find out what kind of, what, what’s your number one superpower? What’s your Goto superpower? That when things are down, you know, this is what makes you just absolutely brilliant and amazing and powerful. So when you take a look at it, understand that the whole concept behind this is to find out what is, what makes you unique and understand as far as this whole super power thing you brought, if you’ve been following us for any period of time, you understand that we really loved and it’s been a lot of time around this whole concept of super powers. So, uh, our guys to funnel hacking lives ago, we released our first comic book which had the avengers theme to it, where, excuse me, I’m fighting a cold here.
Speaker 2: 02:00 We ended up having confusion. Soft and low key pages were two of the bad guys basically that US vendors had to go after and fight. Um, so that was one of the first things we did this last year. We ended up having the Justice League and so it was all around our two Comma Club coaching program and realizing, you know, who is Russell’s justice league that helps him accomplish everything he wants a, if you’ve seen anything at all about Russell, you understand that one of Russell’s favorite characters is Batman. And so we have a life size custom fit Batman suit that sits in our inner circle meetings. Um, we spent a lot of time around this whole concept as far as superpowers and a couple of reasons behind it. One is everybody relates to superheroes. Everyone has a superheroes. Everyone understands the concept behind what superheros are. And so two different things.
Speaker 2: 03:00 When you look at a super here, one of the things is you’re inviting. All superheroes have their unique abilities, but also every superhero typically ends up having some sort of weakness. And that’s one of the critical things. Even as you take a look at expert secrets and you read attractive character, the whole idea behind the attractive character is helping you identify kind of what is your unique superpower, but also what are your weaknesses because the weaknesses and what makes you human. Those are the things that draws people, that will draw people to you. So that’s kind of some of the background behind some of the things you’ve seen us do as far as superheroes. One of the things that’s kind of been under the radar, you guys probably haven’t seen as much, and that’s the idea as far as swag, you’ll find that swag is one of the things we’ve used a ton to help build a cult.
Speaker 2: 03:46 You’re in our business around click funnels. More importantly than that though is it’s also for a lot of our users, it’s their Superhero Cape. And what I mean by that is that it’s been a ton of fun, is you take a look at our office anytime you come in our office, there’s, I would say the majority, if not everybody is wearing some piece of our swag. Uh, I’m always wearing, at least I had, if not shorts and tee shirts and everything else I’m looking at possibly getting some customs, socks and looking at all sorts of different things. And the reason behind that is people like to associate with things people like to, to be a part of something. If you paid attention to his last infinity wars, it was the concept of all these superheroes coming together. It’s kind of like the Justice League where yes, as one superhero you have your own unique capacity, but together you’re literally almost invincible.
Speaker 2: 04:44 And so our swag has helped people kind of identify who they are, their funnel hacker. And it’s been really fun as I’ve talked to different people, when they see the swagger are wearing swag, it does something psychologically to them and it makes them feel a part of something bigger than they are. It also makes them realize, you know what, I can do this. And so when you take a look at your own business and realize the importance of identifying and connecting with your customers, I highly recommend you take a look at the impact swhack and have on it. So that’s some of the ideas as far as this concept of, of, of a superhero realize again, that everybody has at least one. Um, I went back and forth for a long time really trying to identify what your Gosh, what is, what’s really my superpower, what are some of the things that make me unique?
Speaker 2: 05:35 And I think it’s always hard when you look at yourself to identify what yours are. It’s always easy to look at someone else and saying, oh my gosh, they’re great at this and they’re great at this and they’re great at this. But when you look at me like, ah, you know, I’m not as good as I was hoping to be. So just a couple things I can tell you as far as myself. One of my superpowers is the idea that I really, I don’t hear. No, I just, I just run out of time. And what I mean by that is realized when your ticket look at any concept, anything that needs to be done, I really just don’t hear. No, I’m. Whether it’s a person I’ve got to connect with, if it’s, I just think everything is possible. And if I, if something doesn’t happen, it’s literally just ran out of time.
Speaker 2: 06:18 I never lose. I just run out of time and it’s been kinda fun. As I’ve seen this, I’ve seen other people identify the superpower in me. A jewelry store in a while back was that our office and we were just kind of joking around about different things and rustling, oh my gosh, you know what the amazing, we need to see, do you think we could get funnel hacker in the dictionary? I’m like, you know what? I’m on it. Let me go get it done. And Julia was like, what? And I’m like, Oh yeah, totally. I just, that’s just how I am. I just, I think everything is possible. And so to me that some of the things I take a look at as far as, for me, it’s one of the things I just, I don’t hear. No, I’m a second thing, which is probably a little bit to a fault.
Speaker 2: 07:06 And that is, I’m, I’m pretty fearless. Meaning it kind of ties into the first point as far as not sit. I’m not hearing. No, I really, I will do literally almost anything. Um, I’m a huge adrenaline junkie. I love a challenge. I’m highly competitive. And so I, I will try everything at least once and almost to a fault. In fact, awhile back when someone had sent to the office, in fact, I don’t know if you guys have seen some of the things that we’ve done with how he burg. He’s the fastest speed reader in the world. And in the beginning of each year we ended up doing a funnel for him. Uh, he came in this last year and read expert secrets and Dotcom secrets and a total of like three and a half minutes. But his, his superpower is the ability to speed, read it extremely fast.
Speaker 2: 07:56 And more importantly, that tout unbelievable comprehension. So his weakness is he hates flying because he’s always afraid that they’re going to lose his luggage. So what ends up wearing is a, a large vest with a million pockets and that’s how he packs his clothes. So he has them on them on, at all times, so he doesn’t trust Devin, doesn’t trust checking bags and he doesn’t think that a carry on’s the best idea. So just whereas this larger best with all of his clothes and his computer and everything else on just as part of him. So I thought. So I sent one to the office and I was on my way down to Vegas to Phoenix and I thought, you know what, I think I’m going to wear that. And so I started putting all this stuff on and I was going to be gone for like almost the whole week.
Speaker 2: 08:44 So this best became, it was a, I usually wear large or extra large shirts and this is a two xl, so it’s enormous on me. But when it gets stuck, everything, it’s, it’s, it’s pretty legit. So I got it all stopped and I was doing a video waiting for funnel hacker TV and my son Christian was just love anything. Oh, this is the coolest thing in the world dad. So he’s just totally egging me on and then I come out and my see my wife and she’s like, what are you doing? I’m actually, I’m going to wear this. She says, oh no, you’re not. Oh No, you’re not. She said, you cannot. I said, no. I told them, this is been, this would be great. It’d be great for funnel Hacker TV. It’ll be fun. It’ll be a great episode. It will be fun when I get there and talking to people and siphoned that I was kind of challenged at the office today and she’s like, Dave, you cannot.
Speaker 2: 09:32 So we have back and forth and back and forth. I boxed Russell and he says, dying laughing, and he’s like, dude, I would love as you do it, but I’m afraid for you also. And so finally my wife convinced me not to. She goes, listen to you have a trip to the Netherlands the summer you’re going, you’re also flying to Africa this summer. I can guarantee you, you will get on. You will be banned. You’ll have been on. Every Tsa. Watchlist says you look for one hideous, but living. We started walking to the airport like that. People are gonna be scared to death. I thought, okay, so fortunately I had a voice of reason which is my wife, but understand my. Those are two of my superpowers. I think the third one is one I kind of laugh about and it’s not anything that I. I coined myself, but other people have just because of the way they see me work around with Russell and that is I’m Russell’s bodyguard now understand that Russell could totally take me anytime, but when you couple of some of my other, my other superpowers, it’s, it’s one of those things where I literally, I will do anything at all to protect Russell.
Speaker 2: 10:39 He’s like a brother to me. I literally go to end of the world forum and I’m fiercely loyal to those that I love and I care about. So whenever we’re in meetings or anything else, and I know that, uh, he’s in an awkward situation, I’m always the one is basically to get them out of that. Uh, for those of you guys who saw funnel hacking lower at funnel hacking live, all of a sudden someone came up and started talking, basically grabbed the mic while Russell was on stage and this guy starts basically going through what we were. We joke around about now is the Jericho clothes. And I was living outside. I wasn’t even in the room. And I’ll, all of a sudden I get this box from melanie saying, Dave, you’ve got to get in here right now. You’ve got to go get. You’ve got to go say, Russ.
Speaker 2: 11:24 I’m like, what’s going on? And so I run in and sure enough, I see what’s happening. So I walked up on stage and take the mic from the guy, basically escorted him off stage. And it’s just one of those things that I, again, he’s, he’s more than a brother to me. Just I care so much about him that no matter what, I will always do everything I possibly can in his best interest and so that’s another one of my superpowers. And again, if you take a look in your own life, you’re going to find you’ve got a ton of them at the same time. You have to understand, you gotta identify what is, what’s your Kryptonite and the fun thing to take a look at Superman. This is like the most unbelievable superhero in the world because he has absolutely no weaknesses aside from the fact of this Kryptonite and every single one of us has our own.
Speaker 2: 12:11 Kryptonite does take, for example, one of my, one of my biggest weaknesses and my Kryptonite. That just totally kills me that I’m trying to find a way of making sure it’s always in a steel box and protects me and make sure that I don’t have it and that is I just always feel like, you know, I can do it myself faster. And because of that, one of the things that we’ve been joking around about the offices, I hired a va over a month ago. She is totally qualified, amazing, and yet she, I, I have, I just haven’t given her any stuff and all of a sudden James, uh, James P friel is in her office. It was just amazing, especially at systems and Trello and everything else. Like, Dave, what can I do to help you to, to get this done? He goes, Dave, you’re doing way too much of the stupid stuff that we’ve hired other people to do for you.
Speaker 2: 13:03 And so last night as I was leaving the office, we’re in the process right now of creating our dream 100 for a large project that we have coming out this summer. And I spent like three or four hours going through putting together a lot of excel spreadsheets, just merging in just a massive amount of data gathering. And I got, after about three hours, I realized I’m doing this all myself. So I talked to James James, listen, is this something Christine can do? He’s like, Oh yeah, absolutely. She’s totally capable to so from now on day. But you need to do is any task that you start, you literally have to first of all, record yourself doing it and in the process, really ask yourself, is this something someone else can do? And if it is, you’ve got to find a way of giving it to somebody else to do.
Speaker 2: 13:45 There’s too many other things I’m supposed to be doing that on a much larger scale than I’m not doing. And so realized every single one of us has our own Kryptonite. So you just have to make sure that you understand what yours is. So first of all, identify what your super powers are. Identify what your Kryptonite is. Find a way of putting that Kryptonite in a steel box so that it doesn’t impact you. And the last thing is make sure that you surround yourself with other superheroes. Uh, you want to make sure that you start creating your own justice league. We are extremely blessed by making sure that the only people that we hire are total a players, whether that’s in our development, whether it’s support, whether it’s been in marketing. And I’ve been amazed to see the speed at which we’re able to get things done because we associate and hire other superheroes to work with us.
Speaker 2: 14:34 So make sure that as you take a look at those people who you’re working with and you’re surrounding yourself by mixture that, uh, their other superheroes as well, and that they’re not villains who are going to steal your power. So having an amazing day, I wish you all the best in all of your success and your business and just tell if there’s anything you’d like me to go through on a podcast or other content.
