#51 – Investing in Yourself and Stealing Attention with Terry Gremaux

On today’s episode, I have Terry Gremaux joining us from Dallas, Texas. Terry is one of the leading social media trainers in the entrepreneurial space, as well as the author of a book that will help you Develop a Mind-Blowing Daily Routine and Create Your Dream Life.

His story actually starts in a small town in Montana, and at one point he was living paycheck to paycheck. After going through several failures along the way, he finally figured out a system that worked for him. It worked so well that he was able to increase his revenue by over 10x in just a few years!

During the call, Terry also shares a few tips that anyone can use to grow their audience on Facebook. Simple things that you can start taking advantage of today. And of course he brought a ton of inspiration with him, so I know you’ll get value from this episode.

But I don’t want to give everything away in the intro, so I’ll let him explain it all. And with that being said, here’s my conversation with Terry Gremaux. Enjoy!

Best quotes from this episode

I just wanted more. I wanted to control my life. I wanted to have freedom. I wanted something that I’ve never seen anybody in my family have.

I’m very, incredibly introverted at the heart of me, and that obviously held me back in business for awhile. But I just learned to pick my spots. I’ve learned to do things that I have to do to win. That doesn’t mean it has to be comfortable.

At the end of the day, I had to change dramatically to have what most other people will never have.

You can either believe that life happens to you or life happens for you. And I just choose to believe that life happens for me.

Shitty stuff happens to you to make you stronger and make you become better.

At that time, I didn’t have the vision I have today. I just wanted to be something different.

I believe that every decision happens in a moment.

You’re always gonna get what you tolerate. -Tony Robbins

If you want something better, if you want a better life, if you want that business of your dreams, if you want all of that, you have to change what you tolerate and you have to change your priorities in life.

When you have the right mindset, you’re not gonna win every battle, but you’re gonna win the war.

The hardest thing to put money into is yourself.

Knowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power.

Investing in yourself, through any mechanism possible, is not a choice, it’s a priority. You have to make that a priority in your life or you just won’t win.

The way you treat money is the way you’ll receive money.

A coach isn’t there to hold your hand and get you out of bed. That’s not what they’re for. A coach is there so you can use their wisdom to point you in the right direction so you don’t make the same mistakes.

Social media is about attention.

This day in age, there’s no real new.

How can I disrupt attention?

Social media is not a place to sell, so don’t treat it like that. It’s just a tool to get somebody on your email list.

In entrepreneurship, we need to be our biggest critic. We have to be hard on ourselves. But we have to be our biggest forgiver as well, because we’re gonna mess up every day.

If you build relationships consistently, it makes life a heck of a lot easier.

You see these people build these businesses and it looks like it happened overnight, but they’ve really been building relationships their whole life.

Embrace the challenges, because they’re gonna happen.

Business is hard. It’s the hardest game you’ll ever play.

With entrepreneurship, there’s a lot of risk involved. But anything with a lot of risk always comes with amazing rewards.
