I LOVE when people unsubscribe.

If you ever said (or thought), “I’m doing the best I can” you must watch my new video.

Because using this phrase, and other phrases like it, could be the difference between success and failure in business and life.

If I were you, I’d be thinking, “Whoa! Slow down… Mr. Bombastic.”

But for today, I’d like you to keep an open mind.

How to Deal With Clients Who Refuse To Pay

by Derek Halpern | Follow Him on Twitter Here

When I heard the phrase, “A Lannister always pays their debts” in Game of Thrones, I thought “Who doesn’t?”

…Until I started to run a business.

The sad reality is that there are people – a lot of people – who will happily take advantage of every benefit you have to offer them, but when it comes time to pay up, they’ll refuse to do so. It hurts. It’s frustrating. They’ll have an excuse, of course, but the bottom line is, you’re not getting paid.

What’s strange is, these same people will grab a pitchfork for a purse snatcher in NYC, but in the comfort of their own home, they’ll happily ignore your phone calls, delete your emails, and spend the money they owe you on something else. The hypocrisy will make your head spin.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but it happens. That’s why when I overheard some guy screaming on the phone, “I didn’t do this work for free mother $*#)@U$” it got me thinking…

That’s exactly what you DON’T do when someone refuses to pay you. Our first reaction to getting stiffed is usually anger, and we often display that anger out of impulse…

…But if you want your client to settle their debt, you need a little more finesse. And in my latest video, I show you exactly what to do.

$150 salad dressing

What makes things go viral?

Here’s a hint: Forget overblown headlines (like “blow your mind”), babies biting fingers, and animal videos.

The truth will either astound or aggravate you.

Why?

Because you’ll see that there’s no secret or gimmick. Instead, there are 7 things that guarantee it…

…and I reveal them all in today’s video.

The best part? I rediscovered each of them after I ate $150 salad dressing.

Don’t make this dumb mistake promoting yourself

by Derek Halpern | Follow Him on Twitter Here

Earlier today, I received a HORRIBLE EMAIL from someone who’s looking to build their business:

dumbemail

This email is so bad, and so prevalent nowadays that I skipped the Social Triggers TV video this week to share it with you.

…Because I don’t want you to unknowingly make the same mistake. I don’t want you to burn bridges before you begin building them.

It’s also why I’m hosting this webinar all about “how to promote your business the right way.

(Seating is limited. Go reserve your spot right now. It goes down June 10th, and sats are filling up fast).

More details on that in a minute. First…
