Igor’s 7 Wins of 2019

You know how some people love saying how their next year is going to be their biggest year yet? Well… 2019 wasn’t that year for me. It was a year full of mistakes, challenges, changes and sacrifices. But there were some wins too. Here they are.

I'm Igor Kheifets, and this is the List Building Lifestyle, a podcast for anyone who wants to build a wildly profitable email list working from home. If you'd like to make six figures, travel the world and help people improve their lives in the process, then this podcast is for you. I also invite you to attend a free workshop at Igor.ac, where I'm teaching how I made $21,779.25 in affiliate commissions by sending just 481 clicks to my affiliate link in one day. I'm also explaining why I walked away from ClickBank and I don't promote ClickBank offers anymore, as well as the five things I look for in the perfect affiliate offer.

I'm even going to show you the one page website that I used to make over half a million dollars in affiliate commissions this year and I'll even bribe you to attend this workshop by given you a $497 value course that shows you how to share your peak high converting affiliate offers for your next affiliate promotion. In addition, I'll even give you the three offers I'm promoting right now that are making me money as we speak. All that and more at Igor.ac. And now it's time to claim your list building lifestyle.

Welcome back to another edition of the List Building Lifestyle with your host, Igor Kheifets. In a previous episode I shared with you the seven regrets I had from the previous year, and in this episode I promise to share with you seven wins. Now, so it happens that I had way more than the seven wins this year and way more than that, that I want to share. However, for the sake of the format of this podcast, I had to condense to just seven that I felt were most relevant to talk about.

These are by far not all of the successes that I've had this year and also they're don't necessarily mean they're the largest successes or the smallest successes. It's just, I chose them because I felt they were most relevant to the conversation and this is where I felt it would give most value to you. Okay? There are definitely more successes than that for the whole year, but if I had to narrow it down to seven, here's what they are.

First one, I'm really happy we had another baby. And it took me a while to commit to that idea a couple of years actually. But in 2018 I attended a seminar by Craig Ballantine where he kind of, it was like a goal setting seminar where I had a realization that having another baby is in line with my direction, with my mindset, with where I want to end up when I'm old. So I said, "You know what? Let's not delay, let's do it," even though the situation wasn't really stable at the time, right? I was still going through my transition from Israel to Canada. My future wasn't really set, but I was like, "You know what? I don't care, let's just do it."

And so we did it. We did it. Actually we conceived him of the night I came back from the seminar, the evening I came back from seminar and we had a gorgeous healthy baby boy. His name is Christian, and he's just amazing. My wife keeps telling me, she's now asking me for the third one saying, "Look, I mean, we make some great babies, we should probably make more." But now I'm like, again, thinking about it. But having a baby, another baby was definitely a good move because he added another dimension to our lives and the household dynamic changed. It's just, it's different.

I don't know how to explain this, but it's awesome. It's really, really good. Having another baby and especially having a baby boy compared to my first kid, my daughter, it's totally different experiences as well. And it also puts you in that frame... I don't know about you, but for me it put me in a frame or in a state of mind of laser-focus. A continuous reminder that I have to stay on top of my game and produce. For me that's important.

Having another baby, big win for the previous year. Then starting a success diary with my daughter, that's the second win. What we've done is in the summer back in August, we started before bedtime, me and my daughter we write down wins for the day. Meaning that whatever happened that day was sit down and we write it down. Now, it's actually great for two reasons. First off, it's training your memory because I noticed that my daughter had some trouble remembering what happened that day and I had to remind her certain things.

Now she's remembering much faster and she's learning to... she's training her brain to go looking for information. That's actually pretty cool to observe because she can sit there for 40 seconds sometimes kind of thinking and remembering things and then her eyes light up and she's like, "Oh yeah, I remember. Yeah, here's another one." We started celebrating her successes, even really small things like, "Oh, I ate half a carrot today." Or, "I ate two broccolis." Or, "I went in a monkey bars and I was able to swing for three seconds longer than the day before."

These small wins, they eventually built up into a portfolio for lack of a better word of successes. And now whenever she opens her diary, she has to flip through a good 50 pages of successes, of just dozens and dozens and dozens of them. In fact, right now as of this moment we're closing on 700 successes, which means every day she writes down a good five to 10 successes that she achieved that day. This builds up her self-esteem in a big, big way. Now she's seeking them out, now she's seeking success. She's seeking confirmation as to why she's a successful person rather than being hammered with the same ideas that kept me from success for so long where this my self-image was one of garbage.

I mean there was no self-image, there was a really crappy self-image and I was really upset at one point in my life with my parents for allowing that to happen. But yeah, self-image is fricking important. And I'm now consciously creating opportunities for my daughter to increase her self-image, but not just by saying, "Oh, you're successful." Or, "Oh honey, you're amazing." Right? That's not enough. You have to do it in a way that she understands.

One of them is, success diary. And that was a huge boost actually for her. And I started doing one for myself as well. I'm not as consistent because there's no one keeping me accountable for it, but anytime I sit down to write my successes for the day, I walk away with 20 things that I've done well for the day and it really helps. If you do it consistently you're going to build momentum on all of these, so I really recommend success diary.

Now, the third win for the year is getting back into coaching people. That's actually pretty fun. I'm really enjoying the experience and it really puts me in a position where my frame of mind has to be one of breaking down complex concepts into simple concepts. And being able to help people make sense of what's going on in the industry that's always changing and just helping people build a list and write emails and promote products, and drive traffic. It's just really fun, I'm really enjoying it. At one point I had a big coaching business, I shut it down because I burned out. But now I built it in a way that it doesn't kill me and I feel it's a great win for the past year.

Oh, and I'd really appreciate if you logged into iTunes and rated the show, it really helps. Thanks. Now number four, getting to YouTube ads was a really good idea. In fact, I've kind of been spying on other people's YouTube ads and kind of seen what they're doing. And I can tell you that we run a lot of YouTube traffic compared to what other people are doing. Yeah, we spend a lot more money on YouTube these days than other people do. And it doesn't mean that we don't do solo ads anymore, not at all. In fact, YouTube is not my largest traffic strategy to this day but I'll tell you, YouTube has potential.

And what I particularly love about YouTube ads is that you tend to get email subscribers. Obviously that's the whole point to build your list. You tend to get email subscribers who open their emails. My open rate from YouTube traffic sometimes gets up to 30%. My open rate from the same sales funnel driven on Facebook ads will always be like 6%. That's actually pretty good because these people seem to be way more invested.

Another win from the past year is publishing a book. I finally released my book to the world. It was a journey that took me several years, but I'm really happy that we did it. And we're also going to be releasing a book funnel later, so that's going to be really exciting too. Basically and another, if you will, medal that I will put on my chest when I'm old, releasing an Amazon bestselling book. Hopefully not the last one because I really enjoy the writing process and people look at you differently when you've got a book.

Now when I go and I meet people locally here and they ask me what I do, I don't have to say I'm in internet marketing anymore, I don't have to say I'm an email marketer. I just say, "I'm an author." They say like, "Oh really? What do you write about?" And then I say, "About working from home." And they say, "Oh wow, that's interesting. Can I?" I'm just like, "Yeah, I'll send you a free copy of my book." It's really cool, I like it. I like being an author. There's an aura to being an author. It didn't change me as a person necessarily unless I became more narcissistic, but that's something you have to ask my friends. But publishing a book was definitely a good move and it will pay big dividends for my presence and for my business in the coming years.

Now, another huge win, and that's actually not my win at all. In fact, I had very little to do with this win. I believe this win lies 100% on the shoulders of the team who ran the show. Particular thanks goes to two people. First goes to a Dennis. Big, I mean he pretty much made all the executive decisions on that project. And the second big, big, big thanks goes to a smaller person, but somebody who I believe made it all happen. And that is Alana, from my team. Alana, pretty much, pretty much. If she didn't make the executive decisions, she made it everything else happened, right?

She was the feet on the ground. She created the customer follow-up mechanism. She made sure that pens are great, even down to that little detail of how does that pen feel in your hand? What's the design of the pen, the brochures? Placing the tables a certain way in the room. There's so many things I don't even know. I don't even know. There's probably a list of like 200 different things that she did. A big thanks to her for making it happen, and everyone who worked with her because she had a team helping her. That's a win for in general for the year, but again, I take very little credit for that actually happening. I just had to show up and teach a little bit.

Hosting a seminar was a big win. And the reason I feel it's a big win is because first off, we now have footage of the seminar and that becomes a coaching program or a product that we can offer to people where we teach how to write emails and build automation campaigns. Second, it forced me and Dennis who also taught at the seminar to really reverse engineer a lot of things we were doing unconsciously, both for ourselves and our teams and our customers. And also I got to meet a lot of my customers in person, and they're really cool people. That was really cool. That was really, really cool. I really liked the experience and I'm pretty sure we're going to be doing more of that in the future.

Now, not to say that it wasn't stressful, but it was a big project and it was awesome. It was really, really awesome. It took me a while to recover from it though. Even though I was barely involved in it, it still took me at least five days to just recover, which is the one part I hated about it. And I can only assume, I can only imagine the toll it took on the people who actually put it together. That's the sixth win.

And the seventh is starting a mastermind. That's not the one that I plan on expanding this coming year. Right now our mastermind is a nice $7 a month if you joined during the special 50% off promotion at listbuildinglifestyleshow.com. This mastermind has become a platform for everything else and I'm starting to realize that there are two kinds of lists. The first list you can build is the one that you build by just kind of giving away an opt in bribe or something, or inviting people to a webinar and you build a big list that way. And you can build a list of tens of thousands, right? Or hundreds of thousands, and that's cool. That's one list.

But I'll tell you, if you have 100, even as little as 100 people paying you a monthly membership fee, that list, that group of people, that tribe is infinitely more valuable to you than tens of thousands of free subscribers, period. Starting the List Building Lifestyle Mastermind, which I highly encourage you to join because you get access to me, you get on monthly coaching calls, there's a lot of cool stuff I'm giving you as a bonus for signing up and it's only 97 a month if you join during a special promotion.

That mastermind has become the platform for everything else that I'm doing. And those people are now becoming very close to me and I'm becoming close with them and I'm just enjoying every step of that process. Starting a mastermind was another huge one. Those are the seven wins from the past year. If you notice, I talk less about my wins than I do about my regrets. That's the kind of mindset that I've got as a person.

But again, I just want to remind you that there's more wins to the year. I just chose the most relevant ones to the conversation, the one that I felt would give you the most value, the one that I felt would bring some or another insight into your life. With that said, we are really wrapping up the year and I hope that you've already set goals for the next year. If you haven't, now is the perfect time to do it. And until next time, which is in the next year, have a good one.
