Auditing Your Circle

Your Business Circle

Today what I’d like you to sort of getting focused on is your circle, the people that you associate with yourself in business.

Sometimes the people who are not in business, and some friends, and whether or not they’re holding you back.

Complacency and being comfortable in your own position can be really, really costly.

Now, I’m not talking here about being an animal and just blasting through your friend base and disintegrating them.

I’m talking about being specific and aligning yourself with quality people.

Gary Vee and VaynerMedia

This post I’m doing today is really inspired by a Gary Vee video that I saw recently.

I’m sure most of you guys know who Gary Vee is, if not check him out.

He’s the CEO of VaynerMedia, major sort of A-lister on the global circuit really.

And he’s not everybody’s cup of tea, he’s a little bit direct, unfiltered, and offensive in a lot of his delivering but that’s his style.

You either buy it or you don’t.

But credit to Gary, he sort of not only inspired me but we actually posted this YouTube video of Gary in our Rockstar’s Facebook group for our clients and the interaction that we got was amazing.

It’s only a three-minute video, he’s sat there in his studio, he’s got an audience with him, and he’s doing an interview about, what he talks about auditing his circle.

He says, Gary goes on to say about getting rid of one loser friend and then adding one winner friend.

If you check it out, go to YouTube, search Gary Vee, you’ll find that video so I won’t sort of steal any of Gary’s material any further but that’s more of a reference point for what I’m just talking around.

Negative People Bring Negative Vibes

I think it’s so important because you become a part of a piece of the people that we surround ourselves with.

If you’ve got negative people in your business, whether that’s in your employment staff, your fellow partners and directors, negative people, people who are not, I won’t say risk-takers and chancers because there’s a lot of credibility for a cautious approach.

But if they just won’t try anything, they’re just happy being happy, they’re doing what they’re doing, they’re doing that because they’ve always done that.

Then my challenge to you is what is that costing you?

How is that holding you back in your business?

If you were to go and plug yourself into a network.

I’ll just reference the Gary Vee video here, he talks about getting on meetup.com and when he plugged himself into the Silicon Valley world, how his life changed.

Again, I highly recommend you go over and watch that content on YouTube, Gary Vee.

A Circle Of Positive People

We don’t get a profit out of that.

If you want to plug yourself into a positive circle of people, maybe go push yourself really to that next level.

Whether that’s a different networking group, a different speakers group, whether you start your own mastermind, and it’s something that we’ve just started here with 6teen30 Digital.

Whether people, we’re debating at the moment whether we’re doing these monthly mastermind webinars or we actually bring them into 6teen30 Digital and do a session, one-on-one.

We don’t charge for that.

It’s about bringing in a new group of positive, like-minded people together that are not drinking pints or talking rubbish.

It’s literally your development, personal development, a commitment that they’re these monthly mastermind webinars make to themselves and the group each month to go to that next level and learn from the tutors.

So just to show one really today.

Have a think about it and follow Gary Vee’s sort of methodology of which loser friend are you going to cut today and which winner are you going to add to your circle.

So audit your circle.
