Here are the highlights of this episode:

Jim has interestingly told us that their ideal client is not about "who" but "when", it's more legacy-minded professionals that recognize they're at a place where doing their own sales is not the best use of their time. Because of this, they're spending so much time running the transaction of their business, but they wanted to spend time serving their clients. You shouldn't have to decide "Should I serve my clients or do I get more clients?". Jim says that it should happen naturally with good strategy, system, and process. You know that there are things that you want to be doing or ways to serve better but you're pulled in different directions. 

The mistake he sees is that a lot want to get that 'free hack' or things they see on social media, attending webinars, and so on. You really need to get clear and resonate with somebody and go deep with them to understand all the moving parts, why they do what they do, and not just what you think they're doing from the outside. People should ask themselves "how do I know what works best for me?". He wants everyone to realize each has a very unique way of solving problems for the people that they serve, but the problem is they don't properly communicate or articulate it very well. Give yourself permission to not be a salesperson professional but just be an optimistic human who cares about other people and speaks the truth and love. Trust your instincts to go there because if you do, you will have a massive breakthrough. Treat people like they already paid you because they will pay you.

Jim’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Understanding that if you just narrow your market from a clear messaging perspective, and be crystal clear that your offer is actually the solution to the pain point that they're expressing, then you will go a long way to being able to hand that off. The more connected the ideal market is to the perfect offer, they don't have to become a major influential bad-ass offer for you.

If you can learn to treat people like they already paid you before they paid you, guess what? They'll pay you" – Jim Padilla
