Jesus Marketing

In one month, my first book sold 5000 copies, hit #1 Amazon Business Bestseller, garnered over 100 Amazon 5 star reviews and was featured on Inc and Forbes. With no platform, I was able to do things most authors don’t do in their lifetimes by emulating the greatest marketing of all time: Jesus.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between a feather and a brick product, and why it makes all the difference
  • Lessons from billion dollar startups: Why authors and other makers should treat their work like businesses
  • The 80/20 Rule and How to Market like Jesus – In terms of longevity in the marketplaces, the movement he started is 2,000 years old and is still going strong. It has 2.2 billion active users (over 30% of global population), annual revenue across all its subsidiaries is well into the billions of dollars. That’s an unmatched scale, market penetration, and longevity
  • The Four Phases of Launching a Product – Definition, Narrative and Tension, Eyeballs and Urgency, and Momentum

The End of Jobs

The rapid development of technology and globalization has changed the leverage points in accumulating wealth: money, meaning and freedom.

Those that don’t adapt are becoming trapped in the downward spiral of a dying middle class – working harder and earning less.

Entrepreneurs that understand the new paradigm, have exited up to create unprecedented wealth in their lives and the lives of those they love.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • Why the century-long growth in wages came to a halt in 2000.
  • Why MBAs and JDs can’t get jobs and what that means for the future of work and your job.
  • Why The Theory of Constraints and a shift into the Fourth Economy has made entrepreneurship the highest-leveraged career path for the young and ambitious.
  • Why The Turkey Problem means accounting may be the riskiest profession in the 21st century while entrepreneurship may be the safest.
  • How entrepreneurs are leveraging the radical democracy of the Long Tail to get rich.
  • How the Stair Step Method and return of apprenticeships have transformed the “entrepreneurial leap” to make entrepreneurship more accessible than ever.
  • The scientific research on how giving up balanced living and embracing integrated living leads to more money, more meaning, and more freedom.

Taylor was amazing as a speaker at the Gotta Be Good Tour stop in Los Angeles… he’s really widely read on science and execution discipline, and he’s put theoretical insights into practice in his own life. When he shares his experience with the audience, it resonates and shows them how they can do better. He got lots of good feedback and helped make our Los Angeles event a big success. We were really grateful to have him as a speaker, and he’s highly recommended if you’d like someone to speak at any event you’re hosting — in particular on topics related to business, philosophy, operations, achieving things, thinking, systems, habits, execution, and just about anything related to practical wisdom and living well. Hear him speak if you get the chance; or even better, book him to speak at your event if you can. You won’t regret it.”


Taylor left our audience inspired, energized, and armed with the tools they needed to take advantage of it. I don’t think his presentation could have been any better.”

The Only 3 Ways To Be More Productive
Thursday, May 5, 2016

Chris Dixon, an early stage investor in Kickstarter, Skype and Stripe among others, has a concept called the idea maze that he uses to choose which companies he invests in.

Good founders have so much experience and domain knowledge about their idea that they can intuitively navigate the idea maze in their industry. They know when to add features, when to remove them and what market segments to target.

I was at Berkshire Hathaway's annual Shareholder conference last weekend listening to Warren Buffett walk through the idea maze of  investing. I was reminded of Dixon's idea maze because of how poorly my investing idea maze is filled in.

Recognizing your incompetence is not a bad thing, but usually a blessing. For one, "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."

For another, it lets you see areas where you are more competent. At one point, my idea maze around personal productivity and effectiveness was even more poorly filled in than my one for investing is today.

I have spent thousands of hours (and dollars) filling in that maze in the last decade. If I could go back and tell myself one thing to most increase my productivity of the last decade it would be this: "There are only three ways to be more productive."

Hunt Your Sacred Cows

Hunt Your Sacred Cows: trend recognition for fun and profit

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.”
– Richard P. Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning Physicist

I’ve gone deer hunting three times in my life. I am a very bad deer hunter. I usually listen to audiobooks and fall asleep in the deer stand. The only time I saw a deer was because the deer’s hoof stepped on a fallen branch that cracked very loudly and woke me up. I was so surprised that I jumped out of my chair, almost fell out of the tree, and scared the deer away long before I could even attempt to shoot it.

If you’ve never been deer hunting, the kind I’m talking about entails waking up at four in the morning and crawling into a deer stand, usually a folding chair (like you see at high school baseball games) strapped to a tree thirty feet above the forest floor.

You sit in the chair for four or five hours and turn on your spidey senses. If you hear a twig snap in the distance, you turn your head slowly, like the lone woman in a horror movie turning to see the serial killer with the kitchen knife behind her, and look intently into the woods in the hope of seeing a flash of movement that would indicate a deer.

The most important skill in deer hunting is being an incredibly intent observer.
Yet the difficulty of being an intent observer is magnified by how rarely your intense observation pays off.

99% of the sounds that you do hear perched in the stand aren’t made by a deer. They might be the crack of a tree branch under the weight of a fresh snow, or a squirrel running through the brush. To have any chance at killing a deer, you must very slowly, scan the area from where each sound seems to jump. If it does happen to be a deer, the rewards are so large that even though you’re wrong 99 times out of a hundred, you still need to look.

This isn’t an essay about hunting deer. It’s about hunting cows. Not your domesticated Angus or Hereford breed, but a breed of cow which shares more of the characteristics of a deer. This breed of cow rarely emerges from its hiding places in our minds and culture. It is almost impossible to see, even when in plain sight. It blends into the fabric of our world so seamlessly as to seem almost inseparable from reality.

I am talking about the sacred cow.
