Do You Trust Your Success to the Lowest Bidder?

When I was in the military, it always struck me as odd that our equipment was (largely) manufactured by the person who bid lowest on the contract.

Apparently Alan Shepard, the first American in space, shared my concern.


Think about that for a minute. Alan’s safety and security in outer friggin’ space was guaranteed by the lowest bidder. The cheapest option. Yikes.

Let’s bring this back down to earth for a moment…

I help people’s businesses grow faster by building automated repeat profit systems that will continue to pay them for YEARS after our time together has concluded. All they have to do is keep following the simple process and 1) the upside is tremendous and 2) it’s as close to the potential to be infinite as anything I have ever seen.

That kind of growth is not something I will be the lowest bidder on. Ever.

Besides, do you really want to trust your business to the lowest bidder? Don’t you deserve better than the cheapest possible option?

That may work for toilet paper (not really) and macaroni and cheese (definitely not); it’s absolutely disastrous to your business.

Most of the time I’m not the first person people look to hire when they want to grow their business. And, by the time they find me, they have spent $5000, $10,000, or $20-50k or more on all sorts of “low price alternatives”.

Then they find me and say, “I wish I found you earlier, because now I can’t afford you.”

That’s too bad. They trusted their business to the lowest bidder and now they pay the real price. Does this sound familiar? Has this been your pattern?

Henry Ford famously said, “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.”

Do you really want to trust your business to the lowest bidder?

If so, is it any wonder that the results you have seen thus far have been bottom tier?

When I want the cleanest water, I go to the top of the mountain where the water is freshest. I go to the absolute closest to the source as I can get.

It’s the same for me when I’m looking for a coach, mentor or trainer. I want the top of the rung. The person on the top of the mountain.

You can’t see the top of the mountain view when you camp at the base of the mountain.

Isn’t it time to break that pattern in your life?

Just say yes.

And then commit to bigger, better, faster results.
