Welcome, everyone, to the Firing the Man podcast. On today’s episode, Ken and I dive deep into our 2023 goals. For each goal, we will share why we made it, how we plan on accomplishing it, and keep you updated throughout the year on our progress. Ken What’s going on, man?

00;00;38;16 – 00;00;58;05
Speaker 3
David welcome. So for those joining on video, David and I are both remote today. David’s got a new setup and is in his office, a stand up desk. Both got some killer mikes. And so we’re going to share our goals with everyone today. And yeah, I think it’s super important for everybody to have goals and to strive to get better year over year.

00;00;58;06 – 00;01;04;03
Speaker 3
I’m curious, David, how long have you been setting goals? Is this something you’ve recently done or have you done this for a really long time?

00;01;04;04 – 00;01;21;18
Speaker 2
Yes. So my wife and I, when we got married, which was six years ago, every New Year’s Eve, we go out for dinner and we talk about goals for the next year, three and five years. That is the first time I’ve ever formalized, like, actually written it down, however, and we’ll talk about this a little later in the episode.

00;01;21;19 – 00;01;39;29
Speaker 2
You and I have taken it one step further, and not only are we writing them down, but we’re announcing them publicly to firing the man nation. And that is I think that is an added layer of accountability. And so, yeah, let’s just get right into it. So like, why are we doing this? And I just was talking about putting your goals out in the universe.

00;01;39;29 – 00;01;56;05
Speaker 2
I’d like to share a story. In 2020 we did a goals episode on my sheet was Fire Fired man. And when I got to that, I decided not to say I didn’t say it out loud. The reason for that was I had a very stable job and I had I had not fired me. And yet I had a very stable job.

00;01;56;06 – 00;02;12;10
Speaker 2
I was a little uneasy about if e-commerce was going to work or not, and I felt a little bit better. So we had a podcast about quitting your job when I had a job, and so I opted not to announce it. Well, I did not fire the man I did not meet that goal. And in 2020, now in 2021, I did.

00;02;12;11 – 00;02;23;13
Speaker 2
I put it out in the universe. Lo and behold, I did fire the man. And so I think that there’s something to this that when you announce it, you know, other people are listening, that you want to be on top of it. So what do you think?

00;02;23;14 – 00;02;47;26
Speaker 3
Yeah, absolutely. No, yeah, I definitely agree that when you put something out into the universe or, you know, whether it’s you tell your friend or you tell your partner or whoever, it’s a level of accountability. And if you know, if you’re listening to this and you’ve never done goals, take a few minutes, write down some goals, think about them, email them to David and I support at Firing the man or David in firing the man or Kenneth firing the man will be the accountability partner.

00;02;47;26 – 00;03;05;28
Speaker 3
But yeah, I think just just writing for one, writing them down the step one that really like makes them real and then sharing with someone, you know, sharing them with someone that’s positive, that’s going to help you and hold you accountable and check in on. The other thing is reviewing them throughout the year, you know, status check. Where are you?

00;03;05;28 – 00;03;33;06
Speaker 3
Every every every month, every three months, and keep that progress going. And if you slip and fall, get back up and and keep going, you know, And so that that’s huge. And I you know, I really appreciate you sharing this story on, you know, on the 2020 goals versus the 2021 goals. It’s it’s a lot of times we yeah, we like undercut ourself when like I know if I can I’ll if I can do that or not, I would much rather set a goal and not accomplish it than not set one and do nothing like those are your options, right?

00;03;33;06 – 00;03;38;21
Speaker 2
Absolutely. Absolutely. So, Ken, let’s get into what’s what’s goal number one for 2023.

00;03;38;21 – 00;03;58;14
Speaker 3
Absolutely. So I’ve got three personal goals and three business goals that I’m going to share today. The first one, the first three are business and the last year. So the first business one is diversifying 30% of total revenue from the portfolio companies off of Amazon U.S. And the reason for this is that Amazon US is a pain in the ass.

00;03;58;18 – 00;04;21;04
Speaker 3
It’s great when when, when you want it to be and it’s horrible you know any point in time and so diversifying revenue from your business is just a very smart thing to do. Some of the some of the ways that we’re doing this is we’re going to scaling in marketing. So it’s a gap in our business. If you have a native Amazon FBA business, then you likely don’t do email marketing because Amazon’s not going to give you the emails of your customers.

00;04;21;04 – 00;04;50;02
Speaker 3
And so in 2022 we’ve ramped up email marketing for all the portfolio brands and we’re going to really scale it this year. We’ve got a technology partner that we’re we’ve partnered with and we’re scaling emails pretty rapidly. And another one we’re working on is B2B sales. So we’ve taken a step farther and with the brands where we’re reaching out and ramping up B2B sales programs, outreach, cold calls, emails, texting, we’re dabbling in a bunch of things to try to try to generate revenue off of Amazon.

00;04;50;08 – 00;04;58;27
Speaker 3
And the last one is our direct to consumer websites. And so this is email marketing. We’re driving a ton of sales about the direct to consumer websites. David, what’s your first goal?

00;04;58;27 – 00;05;21;19
Speaker 2
Coincidentally, mine also has to do with diversification off of Amazon. And you know, you had mentioned that that they’re kind of a pain in the ass. So how are we going to grow off the Amazon revenue? That is going to be Walmart. We launched in Walmart in late 2020 and spent 2021 kind of getting things optimized. And in I think to me as a platform, it’s still developing.

00;05;21;19 – 00;05;52;08
Speaker 2
And here’s an example of this PPC. You could only advertise at a parent level and in oftentimes if you’re selling something that is variations, that doesn’t work or it’s not optimal, they are just recently switched over to allowing you to to target your child ations or child SKUs, whatever you want to call them in. So I as I see that that develop, I would like to be along for the growth and so I would say right now across all three portfolio companies, Walmart represents between five and 8% of total revenue.

00;05;52;08 – 00;06;12;25
Speaker 2
And I think we could definitely get into the double digits and continue to grow there. It’s it’s now part of our launch strategy when we’re launching, we’re launching on Amazon and Walmart. So pretty exciting stuff there. The next thing is scale international marketplaces. And this was one that we started in 2021, made a significant investment in terms of time and energy just getting this done.

00;06;12;25 – 00;06;33;24
Speaker 2
And one lesson I will share from that is don’t do three new marketplaces at once. So we went into we simultaneously went into the UK, Germany and Canada. All of them have different taxation rules. All of them have different rules on importing. And if you want to stock all of your products, guess what? Now you have three times the inventory demand that you previously had.

00;06;33;24 – 00;06;52;02
Speaker 2
And so in the in uncertain markets. And so anyway, I am looking for those to mature and really looking to get those dialed in. You know, in Germany with that being a different language, there’s a lot more things that we need to do in terms of translating listings and getting our infographics up to speed in the correct language.

00;06;52;05 – 00;07;15;26
Speaker 2
So that’s something that I think is going to help with this diversification. And the last thing is affiliate marketing outreach. We’ll call this B2B. So we have a social media manager at our company. And one thing that we have asked them to do in the upcoming quarter is an outreach program and to influencers. And I think that sometimes when people think of social media, they think of it as a sunk cost.

00;07;15;26 – 00;07;26;24
Speaker 2
But I do think that there are ways to use a self social media manager to drive revenue, and that’s what we’re trying in 2023, and I’m really excited about that. So those are three ways we’re going to diversify revenue.

00;07;26;24 – 00;08;04;22
Speaker 3
That’s awesome. Yeah, it’s kind of interesting how we both have one of our number one goals for, you know, diversifying off of off of Amazon, which is I think crucial. That’s also number two on my list. So something that I think is very, very impactful to our entire company. We implemented in Logo was I think it was Q3 of 2022, we implemented iOS and for for those listening that are familiar with the book Traction U.S. stands for Entrepreneurial Operating System, and it’s essentially boils down to a set of processes and structure on how to run a business and how to how to just make it into just a big goal soap your entire company, your

00;08;04;22 – 00;08;26;12
Speaker 3
entire workforce. And we implemented that and we’ve seen some really good changes since that. And so we’re really just going to I really want to just double down on iOS and just continue to refine what we’ve implemented and make it better. One example is scorecards. We do monthly scorecards for all of our team members and it’s just a measure of their performance and we adjust it.

00;08;26;12 – 00;08;44;25
Speaker 3
It seems like as a small company, you know, we’re able to, we’re able to like have in and like make really quick changes. We’re a large corporation. It’s not that quick. So make making changes, keeping our keeping our employees challenged and also keeping them working on things that are that are relevant to to help out the entire company and things.

00;08;44;25 – 00;09;10;20
Speaker 3
I enjoy working on level ten meetings. So meetings, unfortunately, are just the concept of communicating and running a business. And so we’ve decreased our meetings and we’ve kind of compressed them and as they’re called, level ten. This is something where I’ve I’ve seen huge benefits from from having these level ten meetings and just kind of continue to refine those and make and making sure they’re like super helpful for everyone involved in keeping everybody informed on what everybody else is working on.

00;09;10;20 – 00;09;27;04
Speaker 3
And the last one here. So we’ve recently implemented iOS and spend, I think four or five months. David I think just really drilling in on the pulse of how meetings go monthly, quarterly, annual updates, planning, just really drill in on that, learn and get better.

00;09;27;04 – 00;09;47;15
Speaker 2
You know, when we first started this, I hit the traction program, so we we started with reading the Traction book and implementing this. I was a little nervous that this was going to be a time suck. Boy, is it the actually the opposite. It is saving time. It’s helping out with better communication. And I’m a huge fan. I’m sold on on the program and we will be doing it from here on out.

00;09;47;15 – 00;10;03;17
Speaker 2
And so for those of you who haven’t, at the very least read the book and see if it may be a good fit for your company. But yeah, this is not a paid sponsorship. I just I really like the impact it’s had. And what’s also cause you talked to someone who’s been running it for three or four years and they’re like, Oh, it continues to get better.

00;10;03;17 – 00;10;04;16
Speaker 2
It’s like a fine wine.

00;10;04;16 – 00;10;17;24
Speaker 3
Yeah, absolutely. It just. David, you and I were talking before the show. I was chatting with one of my friends from the mastermind. He’s been he’s been using us for five years and seen just an incremental improvement. So definitely works. So, David, number two for you.

00;10;17;24 – 00;10;33;13
Speaker 2
Yes. So I would like to help three people success. So we fire the man. Now, a little bit of background on this goal. Can you and I have had friends that have fired the man. We’ve had listeners of the show Fire the Man, and we’ve had a lot of people talk to us about wanting to fire the man.

00;10;33;13 – 00;10;52;02
Speaker 2
And it is so exciting to me when this happens, when before I had fired the man and I would hear about somebody doing it, it was very much aspirational, like, I want to know what they’re experiencing now that I’m on the other side of it. It is the greatest gift you could give someone. I like it. I think about it from a parent standpoint.

00;10;52;08 – 00;11;11;09
Speaker 2
I think one of the best things I could give my children is the ability to be self-sufficient and have full ownership of their time. It is a gift in and certainly something that that can you and I have enjoyed. And so this is something through the podcasts we would obviously love all of our listeners if that is their goal, to fire the man in terms of like personalized coaching.

00;11;11;09 – 00;11;30;15
Speaker 2
And can you and I have opened up coaching to a very small group of people I mentioned my goal is three people. That is because I want to be three for three this year. I want I want whoever starts the program to finish it. And we have a celebratory beer over fire in the man. And so anyway that’s that’s that’s big goal for the upcoming year.

00;11;30;15 – 00;11;50;23
Speaker 3
That’s awesome. Yeah, it’s kind of a selfless goal but also very rewarding, like how I enjoy helping people and I know you do too. David That’s really cool. And yeah, I can’t think of a better than to help someone fire the man. It’s, it’s pretty amazing. Okay, number three on my list, increase revenues by 20%. You know, David, you and I have been talking about this for the last few months.

00;11;50;23 – 00;12;13;14
Speaker 3
2022 was a rocky year for all of e-commerce. You know, I’m in multiple masterminds. You are as well. And after talking with lots of people, the majority like 75 to 90% of e-commerce businesses were down in 2022, which is which is an odd year. And so this year or no turnaround, we’ve got a lot of initiatives in place, a lot of programs shuffled some things round.

00;12;13;14 – 00;12;29;25
Speaker 3
And our goal is to increase revenues by 20%. How are we going to do that? A couple of things. Here are large new products. We’ve got lots of new products in the pipeline. Got a new program, PLM, we’re going to share with the audience once we’re done with that. More exciting things to come there. But we’re launching a lot of new products.

00;12;29;25 – 00;12;50;05
Speaker 3
We’re going to optimize PPC. We’re in the middle of implementing a new PPC software, and so when we’re done, we’ll likely share that share case study. But there’s a lot. So if you’re the bulk, if you’re if you’re an Amazon seller or Walmart seller and you you need to have PPC dialed in, it’s just getting more aggressive and more aggressive As more and more sellers come on the platform, the advertising is just going crazy.

00;12;50;05 – 00;13;13;18
Speaker 3
So you definitely need to have your PPC dialed and scaling B2B and direct to consumer sales. And so that kind of ties in with the goal. One here of diversifying off of Amazon, using these other channels to drive sales, you know, starting a B2B program and really ramping up direct to consumer website sales is just it. There’s a lot of opportunity right now with scaling those.

00;13;13;18 – 00;13;15;21
Speaker 3
So increasing revenues by 20%.

00;13;15;24 – 00;13;39;04
Speaker 2
Absolutely. Can one of the things that you said there, which dovetails very nicely into my third goal, is launching products. So my next goal is to launch 15 products across portfolio companies. And can you and I have been going deep on this and we are we have been emailing our customers and asking them, what do you want? We have been polling our private Facebook groups asking the customers what they want.

00;13;39;05 – 00;13;56;19
Speaker 2
We have taken a very analytical look at sales velocity and BSR and number of reviews, and this is something that I’m going to go on a little bit of a tangent here. We had a guest on on the podcast, Reggie Young, and he said, You are one product launch away from changing your life in that hit like that, that sentence hit me.

00;13;56;19 – 00;14;13;16
Speaker 2
And so I think that is at least from my standpoint, I think we’re getting things dialed in, like when we’re watching products, packaging is on point, inserts are on point in in. So just trying to launch not 15 product, just 15 products, but 15 really good products. And so I don’t know. Can you add on this? What are your thoughts here?

00;14;13;16 – 00;14;35;04
Speaker 3
Yeah. And just to piggyback on that, one thing that we’ve we’ve pivoted on over the last two or three years is you hit on a little bit, David, is that we’re actually like communicating with our customers and listening to them on what what products they want and what products they need. And then and then we’re using Amazon’s tools to go and validate there’s a demand for those tools or for those products.

00;14;35;04 – 00;14;52;25
Speaker 3
Whereas we used to do the reverse. We used to use all of these tools to look at, you know, BSR and sales velocity and all that and then go launch products and see if people would buy them. We’re doing it. We’re doing it the opposite. Now we’re listening to the people and then we’re just verifying that there is a demand for them that people are actually buying because Walmart’s are Amazon and Walmart.

00;14;52;25 – 00;15;11;02
Speaker 3
They’re like large search engines that people use to purchase products. And so we’ve kind of like, you know, flipped it over. And so but it’s exciting, like listening to our customers and then validating that, yes, there is a demand and then launching those products. And so now I’m super excited. We’ve got several in the pipeline, we call them idea buckets.

00;15;11;04 – 00;15;13;29
Speaker 3
Our idea buckets are full and so it’s exciting.

00;15;13;29 – 00;15;21;20
Speaker 2
Absolutely. Absolutely. All right. And so you went through your three your three professional goals. What about your three personal goals?

00;15;21;20 – 00;15;37;10
Speaker 3
Yeah, absolutely. So number four, it’s a personal goal for the listeners. I don’t know. David and I both trained in jujitsu and have for a while. And so my one of my personal goals for this year is to achieve a Brown Belt jujitsu, which is yeah, I’m excited for it’s heavy, but I’m excited for it. But so how am I to do that?

00;15;37;10 – 00;15;45;00
Speaker 3
I’m going to train three times a week. I’m going to try and not get injured and I’m going to have fun. So those are those are three, three ways that I can achieve a brown belt.

00;15;45;01 – 00;16;06;21
Speaker 2
Awesome. Yeah. Can you mention jujitsu? You’ve you’ve been doing it a while. I’m. I’m six months in and this actually is one of my goals is to attend 100 jujitsu training sessions. And like I mentioned, I started six months ago, and I love it. I love it. And I honestly, I thought about it for about five years listening to Rogan and watching me, I was like, I should try this.

00;16;06;21 – 00;16;24;11
Speaker 2
I wrestled in high school. I love it. Not only is it like great exercise, but like it’s an awesome group of guys. It somehow engages your brain in a similar way to like chess, which is weird. Like, I don’t get that from other sporting things, but I love it. That’s one of my my three personal goals is to attend to 100 jiujitsu trainings.

00;16;24;12 – 00;16;39;09
Speaker 3
That’s awesome. And yeah, you know, like for me, training jujitsu, like you mentioned, is like chess. And it is because you’re, you’re, you’re, you have an opponent that you’re training with and you’re trying to beat and so you’re trying to figure out what they’re doing. And then you’re going to you’re trying to figure out a defense and then attacking them back.

00;16;39;09 – 00;16;58;08
Speaker 3
And so it engages your brain as well as your entire body. When I leave, you know, a training session, I’m completely wiped out like I’m drained. And one thing is like one thing I’ve noticed. I’ve got a lot of good friends that I met in jujitsu, especially someone that’s been training more than six months or so. Anybody that doesn’t like it, they’re not going to train after six months.

00;16;58;14 – 00;17;15;27
Speaker 3
It’s something that you have to really enjoy because it’s grueling, but it’s there’s a lot of like quality people. And if and if you like to, you know, do something grueling and you enjoy it, you’re likely you’re you have a lot of grit. And so a lot of the people that you meet trained, you just you have a lot of grit because they just stay after it for so long.

00;17;15;27 – 00;17;33;19
Speaker 3
Awesome. Next one on my list, number five, I’m going to take another 30 day, which I’m labeling as a non-work vacation. I’ll take the laptop for emergencies, but no scheduled meetings, anything like that. I did this last year. My family and I traveled Europe for 30 days. We did seven countries and four weeks or eight countries in four weeks.

00;17;33;19 – 00;17;54;12
Speaker 3
It was a it was an incredible trip as my first travel trip since COVID. And so I had a I had a ton of fun. And yeah, it was just good to just have that downtime. And the other thing, you know, it exposes gaps in the business. Does anything, anything like go to shit, you know, or as well as you know, it kind of empowers the team to handle things on their own and, you know, to grow.

00;17;54;12 – 00;18;03;04
Speaker 3
Having said that, I have David as a business partner that also helps out, helped tremendously running all that stuff. And so but yeah, that’s that is another goal of mine Absolutely.

00;18;03;06 – 00;18;18;29
Speaker 2
And it goes both ways. You know I travel plenty last year in we cover for each other and that’s something that I don’t think people think about when they think of having a business partner. Actually, it wasn’t something that I really even considered that much until we started doing it. And it is nice. Don’t feel like you have to be married to your business.

00;18;18;29 – 00;18;37;15
Speaker 2
You can go unplug. At the end of the day, I think that unwinding outside of work helps you when it’s work time to really dial in. So one of my next personal goals, and this is kind of going along with that theme of travel is to go on to out of state haunts. So I think I may talk about this on previous episodes, but I love to hunt and fish.

00;18;37;15 – 00;18;56;21
Speaker 2
That is my thing. And this past year I went on an elk in a bear hunt, a bear up in Canada and an elk out in Wyoming, and I had the best time, met a lot of really cool people, saw cool parts of North America, really, that I otherwise wouldn’t have seen. And so anyway, I am wanting to do that again next year.

00;18;56;21 – 00;19;05;03
Speaker 2
And so I’ve got I’ve got a bear hunt on the books and hope and I draw Wyoming Animal Tech. But anyway, that’s awesome.

00;19;05;03 – 00;19;07;12
Speaker 3
Is that a black bear or a grizzly bear?

00;19;07;12 – 00;19;24;00

A black bear. A black bear. So yep, it’s up in Manitoba and little I’m going to go off on a tangent, but I was at a hunting camp a couple of years ago and someone had some bear and it was the sweetest meat I had ever tasted. And he said, These bears are from this place in Manitoba where they have blueberries, literally everywhere.

00;19;24;00 – 00;19;37;00
Speaker 2
So much so that the bear spat is purple and so like a candy meat. And so anyway, I booked like after I tasted that meat, I booked a hunt. I went up there last year and came back empty handed, going back and hopefully I can get a blueberry bear.

00;19;37;00 – 00;20;04;05
Speaker 3
That’s awesome. Yeah, very cool. All right, so my last one, number six, my third personal one to lose £30. So over the last several years, I have gained weight. And due to COVID due to not working out, eating crappy, taking time off. And so huge goal for me this year to lose £30. What I’m going to do that is I’m training jujitsu and I’m not getting injured and I’ve got a new system of meal prep and planning.

00;20;04;05 – 00;20;17;28
Speaker 3
There’s a couple of places around here that I that make like healthy meal, healthy meals and they have in there. You can just go by a it I’m delivered. So I’m doing that and as well as meal planning ahead of time of what if I’m going to go out to eat, What am I going to what am I going to pack and all that.

00;20;17;28 – 00;20;35;09
Speaker 3
So you’re spending more time having a having a plan in place versus just, oh, I’m hungry. I’m going to go grab whatever I want to eat, which is what I used to do. And then the last one here is better sleep and some sleep schedule, I think. I think sleep is oftentimes like underrated. Like, you know, I was watching I was on YouTube today.

00;20;35;09 – 00;20;50;03
Speaker 3
I got lost in YouTube, man. And I saw this guy pop up and said, What’s the best thing about it? And he goes, Sleep is free. Anybody can do it. It’s free. And I’m like, That’s true, you know? And so having a really good sleep schedule get you dialed in for a lot of stuff. You’re refreshed your you feel great.

00;20;50;03 – 00;20;55;28
Speaker 3
You’re not you don’t need a crutch and so better sleep so trying jujitsu, meal prepping and better sleep. So hold me accountable for that.

00;20;55;28 – 00;21;14;27
Speaker 2
Absolutely. You are talking about sleep for anybody that has not fully bought in on this, go listen to a matthew Walker podcast right when he was on Joe Rogan. He’s a PhD in Spanish whole life studying sleep. And it was it was one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Also one of the best. Like you’ll be a huge fan of sleep after listening to it.

00;21;14;27 – 00;21;34;00
Speaker 2
So anyway, yeah, last one on my list is Live four weeks as a digital nomad working somewhere else than my office. So when I dreamed of being a digital nomad, dreamed of firing the man, I thought that I would, you know, travel, maybe work out of the back of an RV and just, you know, never be home. That has not been the case.

00;21;34;00 – 00;21;51;08
Speaker 2
I have spent actually most of my time at home. I’ve realized that I am a homebody and I enjoy being at home. However, I have done a couple like working trips. I spent a week down in the Florida Keys and I work for like 5 a.m. to one, and then I’d go fishing with my boys in the afternoon.

00;21;51;08 – 00;22;07;08
Speaker 2
That was great. And I paid for it with credit card points from PPC spend. And so life was good that week. And so I want to do more of that. Anyway, that’s four weeks is Digital Nomad hold me accountable. Hopefully you don’t see my background is in my office so often now.

00;22;07;08 – 00;22;27;06
Speaker 3
That’s awesome. And yeah, I think that, that is really cool. It just get away and unplug and and flex that muscle of hey I don’t I’m not tied to, you know, I have roots here. I can, you know, be mobile and move around. So that’s awesome. I hope everybody really enjoyed the show. And David, I think maybe we do a midyear major bowl review.
