How to Amplify Your International Capabilities and Opportunities
What’s your favorite country? Favorite location?
What’s your favorite CURRENCY?
How would you like an audience of clients from all over the world? Singapore? Paris? Dubai? Japan? New Zealand? Sweden? India? Israel?
Imagine being able to change your way of thinking and your business so that you could improve your quality of life in every possible way: financially, physically, personally…
Imagine finding solutions, opportunities, ways to digitize, dematerialize and virtualize every aspect of life in this post-COVID world.
Wouldn’t you want to know exactly HOW to make all of these ideas reality instead of just a pipe-dream?
Do you get as excited about this stuff as I do? I thought so. You’re going to want to keep reading…
Dan Sullivan and I both love to see new trends emerge and watch old ones end but the best is when we get to actually CREATE trends and that’s what we’ll dive into today on the Capability Amplifier podcast. We’re all about amplifying capabilities.
And in this episode – you’re going to learn why we have NOTHING to fear from China or any other country or their currency…and how to prepare yourself for a bigger and better future and world.
Ok, I'm going to say something wildly unpopular, so brace yourself… I’ve LOVED COVID.
Don’t get your panties in a bunch, I have a very good reason. I've loved hibernating. I’ve loved the simplicity of life. I've had more client activity than I could ever imagine and a lot of things I've been talking about for years and years have happened three – 10 times faster than I anticipated because of this pandemic.
And – full disclosure: I’ve had a record number of new client engagements and enrollments from all over the world. Singapore. Europe. India. Canada. Alaska.
It seems everyone wants (and needs) help figuring out how to digitize, virtualize and dematerialize their business… and find ways to automate their business, marketing and sales.
And I’m taking US Dollars and BitCoin as payment.
That leads us to the tactical part of our conversation today. How can we tap into international audiences as business owners and business leaders? Dan brought up Mexico specifically which is something I'm really fascinated by.
What we call the global society, global capitalism and the global market is the result of decisions made by one country, (the US) who have the greatest military in the history of the world. The US also has the biggest consumer market anywhere in the world. Practically anything you want to create someplace else in the world, Americans will buy it.
The other thing that's very, very powerful is that US currency is actually the only currency in the world.
Everything else is just an investment that you hope works out against the US dollar and that's because 100% of all commodity trades in the world are done in US dollars. All trade coming out of China, all trade going into China is done in US dollars. Ask the drug and weapons dealers what their preferred currency is. It’s the US dollar.
But historically, the US has always been the seller. The seller is someone who can get rejected. The person who does the rejecting is the buyer, so it makes sense that you always want to be the buyer, right?
In 1945 the US decided that they would sell the rest of the world that making war with each other was bad. They sold the rest of the world to repair their economies, and to get into what became a global economy. They sold the rest of the world that if they use lots of energy all the energy would be safely protected.
It was a saddling job and the American people didn't profit that very much from it., (in fact they lost all their factories to places overseas) starting when the Soviet Union collapse in 1991. One of the greatest geopolitical events in history that nobody talked about because they didn't want things to change because the US has created a really wonderful world.
Now, we think, Americans have fundamentally come to a decision. They're not going to be the seller anymore, they're going to be the buyer. They're going to focus on their own economy and if you want to be part of the game, make us an offer, and we'll consider it.
That brings us back to Mexico. The US has looked at all their supply chains around the world and said anything that requires high technology comes back to the United States. Anything that requires cheap labor goes to Mexico. They have massive amounts of young people who can enter the workforce. We think Mexico has a very great future ahead.
What if this is just the first in a long series of scary times and scary times become the new normal? If you can accept this as the new “normal” then you're going to be further ahead than the people who are always shocked.
