Have you ever felt like you’re doing all the “right” things with not enough to show for it? You’re taking action from all the podcasts. You’re following in the footsteps of the leaders who seem to have what you want. You’re checking all the boxes and following the step-by-step path to “success.” And, maybe you’re seeing some “success,” but it doesn’t feel like you thought it would. It doesn’t feel sustainable, repeatable, or even fulfilling.
Are you doing ALL THE THINGS, but you’re still not where you want to be? Or maybe even who you want to be?
Friends, it’s time to throw that rulebook out the window.
And we’re here to walk you through it, because that’s exactly what led us to starting GUIDE Culture®
Before the GUIDE Culture® material, I had a strong desire to break out of the life I had been told need to go a certain way- I’m “just” a guy from the country, some might say. As a young adult, I was a school teacher and coach who wanted to break out and do my own thing. The problem was, I didn’t have any confidence or skills. I became very aware of what needed to happen in order to make something of myself. So, I started my own business. As I started my agency, it became clear that to lead my team AND sell my product, I realized, this is hard work, there’s got to be more I can learn to make this work.
So, little by little, I started to create a training that I could refer to and that I could teach to my staff. I wanted to have a positive, results-driven culture. What I like to call a “sales culture”.
30 years later, this training has become GUIDE Culture. It’s filled with timeless information and techniques that WORK.
If you told me 4 years ago I would be teaching hundreds of entrepreneurs along with Kathryn about sales, I would have laughed. Very hard. I went to college unsure about what the future held. I had full intentions to get married and start a family. Until it was time for that, I started a job that would ‘do for now.’ Until it wasn’t- I wanted more freedom so I started a business.
A few months in, I had some sales and some traction – but nothing like I thought I should have – especially compared to all of the hard work I had put in: showing up on IG, adding value to people’s lives and being the best business owner I knew I could be.
A big one. And it was right in front of me the whole time!
My dad, Loy Day – who had created a sales training for his staff – had tried to teach me these skills for years. After saying no over and over again, I finally bought in to the training and he taught it to me.
Here’s what happened:
This was it! It broke my heart knowing this was the missing puzzle piece for so many. I went to my dad and asked if he would come alongside me to teach this because we couldn’t keep this for ourselves.
He said yes and we began. In one of our first sessions, there was a student that was bought-in from the very beginning. And her name was Kathryn.
I think I had (subconsciously) dreamed of being a fancy pants corporate person clicking my heels in a marble lobby. I decided when I was about 15 that I would become a dietitian and do really cool things with that career. Travel, speak, you know cool work things.
When I got into corporate it felt like an epic failure. The phrase “clocking in” still makes me nauseous. That’s when I made the pivot into a side-hustle so I could create my own life, make my own money. Be. a. Boss.
For a couple of years my sales were mediocre…not life-changing as advertised. I was on a roller coaster of motivation and overall I was unfulfilled.
Before I called yet another “failure”, I decided to invest in myself. That investment was GUIDE Culture. Within 90 days I had seen a 4x increase in sales. Truly, the formula we teach is like a cake that needs to be baked. And let me tell you it’s gooood.
GUIDE Culture® was the answer to the puzzle for both of us. It gave us both confidence, a track to run on and the skills to make traction quickly and effectively.
Well, it means we all practice what we preach, verbatim. The REAL value of that is, you can rest assured that each team member’s primary mission is to love and serve you.
