How are they attracting your potential customers? Not to be dramatic, but both in prison and in business, this can be life or death. If you want to ensure that your business thrives, conducting a competitor’s audit is a great way to discover who you are competing with and how you can use that information to leverage your success. This service will cost you, but believe me, if you use this information to your advantage, it will be worth every penny.

Aired 10/28/16

Episode Summary:

On this episode of UNSTOPPABLE with Bruce and Ashley (#Brashley!), they jump right in with their new term: Douchepreneur! Those would-be entrepreneurs who want to get started in business and blow their entire budget on hiring a coach but spend NO MONEY on the things that will actually help their business take off and make them successful.

And for the Golden Nugget of Truth: it’s all a crap-shoot and even with 100,000 hours of marketing experience we can’t predict what will work – BUT there is light in the madness that can set you up to WIN MORE OFTEN …


Pro Tips:

  • The first 5 years of business is a Shit Show, “ridiculousness”, and can be a big write-off so don’t spend your fortune for group masterminds, spend it on this instead if you want to succeed! [3:54]
  • People LOVE to express their thoughts and opinions and it’s the cheapest and best market research you will ever do — see what it is here and the “grain of salt” to watch out for! [16:23]
  • The Big Message: Try, fail, learn, and try again! No matter what the biggest of the bigs say, they probably didn’t get everything right the first time (or the second or the third), here is their so-called-magic-formula revealed! [12:47]

Juicy, Random, and Sometimes Off-Topic: (Now these are a MUST-SEE!)

  • Hear about the time Ashley REALLY had to pee while in the Lincoln Tunnel… what did she do?! [10:28]
  • Brace yourself for the ‘F-bomb’ as Bruce passionately explains why you should stay true to your philosophy, your business strategy, and your authenticity [26:45]
  • Ashley’s Confession about her salary!? (a little out of alignment, maybe?); lessons can be learned from what we even do wrong! [36:03]
  • Bruce’s Confession: First, Bruce hints at his age as he confesses the good, the bad, and the ugly and then goes on to tell his “rags to riches” story. Don’t miss it! [38:53]
