This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam welcomes Business Strategist & Networking Mentor, Robert Butwin.
Have you ever been frustrated by not getting results from social media and other common marketing tactics? Do you want to have people listen to you, recognize you, respect and pass on your posts, articles, and podcasts?
Robert is an expert in getting business owners "unstuck" and increase the ease and joy in their lives. He is a dynamic professional networker skilled in social media, marketing, sales, management, training, and public speaking.
He has been a contributing writer for many professional trade journals, and is the author of the best-selling book Street Smart Networking and has produced many CD’s. He has traveled to Europe and Asia many times sharing his insights and wisdom to help entrepreneurs accelerate their success.
Robert was always that young entrepreneur. Whether it was caddying for golf or newspaper routes shoveling snow you name it he did it. His dad thought he needed to not just learn how to make money on the golf course but how to play the game. He realized his childhood had a lot to do with his adulthood as he now sees that as the foundation for him becoming an entrepreneur.
Robert didn’t want to go to college but he did. He was more interested in running the family business. He said he didn’t really learn anything but Did cause a change in him as he took the path of least resistance and started working on himself he discovered The Wayne Dyer tipes This would help him switch lanes in his career. You can make a living trading time for money as a job you can make a fortune through self education. That quote from Wayne Dyer really stuck in his mind propelled him to the next Journey. Robert discovers many things and realizes one of the biggest Keys to success is realizing that you’re not stuck and just because something didn’t work out, doesn't mean you weren’t meant to be great but instead it will open doors for you that you didn’t realize was an option.
Being an entrepreneur is much more simpler these days now that we have access to the Internet and people globally .we have more ability to reach more people than ever before. The key to being successful and running a Business it that it’s really about who you know and networking your way with different people, but you also have to remember the people working for you or just as important as you are, helping people it will only benefit you in the long run.
Robert shows no signs of slowing down, but he’s more focused now on helping people by passing on his knowledge and wisdom. He came up with something he calls the ABCs of success. Number 1 Aware of and what you want and what you need to change your relationship to accomplish the things you want to accomplish. 2. B Brand yourself and be selective of the brands you represent. 3.C Constant improper action 4.D Digitize you’re messaging blogs and books. 5.E expose your messaging to the right audience. ‘6S Strategic planning And systematize ability to attract and maintain the relationships.
00:03:21.180 --> 00:03:41.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Good afternoon my conscious co creators, welcome to another edition of the conscious consultant our awakening humanity i'm very, very pleased that you are all here with me today today we're going on a little bit more practical note with my guests who i'll introduce in just a couple of minutes.
00:03:42.420 --> 00:03:49.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So not you we're not we're not going off into the very esoteric as we've been doing in recent weeks.
00:03:49.800 --> 00:04:00.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But first, of course, we have our quotes of the day from Mike Dooley in the universe, and from Abraham to kick us off and just a little reminder we've got a lot of new shows on the network.
00:04:01.440 --> 00:04:12.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So please go to talk radio dot nyc and check out we've got a number of a wonderful business related shows now on everything from small and midsize businesses leadership.
00:04:14.250 --> 00:04:24.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Content marketing we've also got shows on on things like suicide and psycho analysis and development and.
00:04:24.390 --> 00:04:36.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Now we've got not just one location show hit the rediscovering New York, but then we also have gateway to the smokies, which is all about the smoky mountains down in asheville North Carolina so.
00:04:36.960 --> 00:04:46.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: A lot of great offerings I hope you'll check out some of the other shows as well let's get started with our quotes of the day, first from the universe.
00:04:47.730 --> 00:05:01.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Nothing helps heals cures men's builds clears stabilizes fixes balances restores corrects inspires enables empowers enlightens or tickles better than the truth.
00:05:01.980 --> 00:05:15.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: asked for it by name the universe mm hmm so the universe is asking us to ask for the truth to be more focused on the truth, so I have some caveats with this.
00:05:16.500 --> 00:05:29.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So the first thing which I think is the most important thing is being truthful with ourselves it's asking the universe, to show us the truth it's not necessarily always about giving other people, our truth.
00:05:31.830 --> 00:05:39.000 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because we need to see the truth more clearly before we can share it with anybody else.
00:05:40.830 --> 00:05:52.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And there's also a quote I heard a long time ago that I really believe in that said truth without compassion can be cruel.
00:05:54.210 --> 00:06:01.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So truth is very important, but I always like to temper truth with compassion.
00:06:02.910 --> 00:06:15.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And yes, truth is important and it's most important when it comes to being truthful with ourselves when when things aren't going the way we want when when things aren't working out.
00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:27.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Maybe we need to be a little bit more truthful with ourselves about how we are showing up in this situation, about our contribution to what's going on about.
00:06:28.590 --> 00:06:35.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How our own actions and our own decisions have contributed to the current situation.
00:06:36.720 --> 00:06:41.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it's not always easy we're very, very good at.
00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:56.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Getting ourselves off the hook about not really being honest and truthful with ourselves and and fooling ourselves a little bit you know everybody's different some people are better at than others.
00:06:58.020 --> 00:07:04.980 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But really the most important truth is the truth that we find for ourselves it's the truth in our own lives.
00:07:06.930 --> 00:07:15.420 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Other people need to find the truth in their lives, then we can share our truth but we're sharing it from the point of view of what's true for us.
00:07:18.510 --> 00:07:40.500 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: However, I think if we keep our focus on what's the truth of what's really going on not resisting what is, but really embracing what is going on around us that then we're much more empowered to face whatever it is we're dealing with on any given moment any given day so.
00:07:41.550 --> 00:07:51.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: nice little quote from the universe speaking about truth alright let's see what Abraham has in store for us today, Nice and short and sweet one from Abraham.
00:07:52.320 --> 00:08:13.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: No one can deny you or grant you anything it all comes to you by virtue of your vibration alright, so this is a one of those quotes from Abraham that's really talking about our own power about how what is what we're attracting into our lives, what we are.
00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:25.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: experiencing what we are recreating is really up to us, our energy our attitude our presence, how we show up in the world.
00:08:26.370 --> 00:08:29.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that it's not really about other people.
00:08:30.210 --> 00:08:37.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's really about our energy and what we are energy attracts to us in our life.
00:08:39.480 --> 00:08:47.310 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So if we have the energy of being a victim, then there we're going to attract people into our life we're going to victimize us.
00:08:47.910 --> 00:09:02.280 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But if we have the energy of empowerment of creation of joy of happiness then we're going to attract more of that we're going to attract more evidence that that is the truth for our situation.
00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:04.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So.
00:09:06.630 --> 00:09:12.540 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's not about what other people do to us or do around us.
00:09:13.620 --> 00:09:17.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's really about, what are we bringing into our life.
00:09:19.410 --> 00:09:35.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And you know, sometimes it's not so easy again going back to the first quote about truth, sometimes it's not so easy to be truthful to ourselves about what we are bringing in about owning responsibility for what's going on in our life.
00:09:36.690 --> 00:09:39.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And sometimes things just feel out of control.
00:09:40.800 --> 00:09:42.240 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that's okay.
00:09:43.380 --> 00:09:45.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But if we can lean into.
00:09:47.100 --> 00:09:56.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: This idea that we're the creators of our life if we can lean into that, by virtue of our choices or decisions are attitudes and our energy.
00:09:58.170 --> 00:10:18.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And how we show up in any given situation that that truly impacts and create the outcomes and the results that we see in our life when we get to that point when we can see the truth of how we're creating our life and it's not about what anybody else is doing.
00:10:19.380 --> 00:10:37.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Then we're more empowered to move forward to create a life of joy and happiness and and have greater abundance or whatever the greater is that we want to bring into our life or the something better.
00:10:39.720 --> 00:10:49.470 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Maybe it's about more friendships more love more connection more amazing experiences learning more new things, whatever it happens to be for you.
00:10:51.510 --> 00:10:54.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But first we have to see the truth about ourselves.
00:10:55.740 --> 00:11:11.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then we have to take responsibility for how we're showing up and realize that if there's anything out of alignment anything that's not in integrity anything that's like causing us some dissonance within ourselves.
00:11:13.440 --> 00:11:30.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That that's going to affect what we attract what we create and what we build in our own lives, so let's first get good with ourselves first good good with again our energy our vibration, are our how we are showing up.
00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:40.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then let's see what unfolds before us and inevitably with any of my coaching clients anybody who's worked with me over the years.
00:11:40.860 --> 00:11:56.010 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Once they've gotten better with their energy and their vibration, the results always follow always always always always never without question so two wonderful interesting.

00:13:45.330 --> 00:14:04.980 Robert Butwin: You know I thought I was on this one path in all of a sudden, I had a defining moment and actually i've had a you know a few different defining moments in my life but it's like it my first defining moment was listening to a Wayne dyer's cassette tape series how far back that was.
00:14:04.980 --> 00:14:05.580 yeah.
00:14:06.720 --> 00:14:19.380 Robert Butwin: No limit person ah, and it was, like all of a sudden, I started to realize that the limits that existed in my life I was responsible for them being there.

00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:28.320 Robert Butwin: Where the truth comes in, you know, and I love the fact you know, because most people are in a state of denial I love the.
00:14:28.320 --> 00:14:38.850 Robert Butwin: acronym denial, they don't even notice, I am lying they're lying to themselves by not taking responsibility, which is one of the key things that you said yeah yeah yeah.
00:14:39.270 --> 00:14:52.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So i'm just curious, so you so you've been an entrepreneur for most of your life Is this something you started off with is like a little kid like did you have a paper route or or Is this something that kind of developed afterwards.
00:14:53.160 --> 00:14:54.060 Robert Butwin: I had it all.
00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:58.140 Robert Butwin: Paper out I lived in Minnesota I shoveled the snow.
00:14:58.860 --> 00:15:02.580 Robert Butwin: I cut grass, I actually caddied.
00:15:03.870 --> 00:15:07.770 Robert Butwin: At a golf course in fact was a funny story, because my dad was running.
00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:17.760 Robert Butwin: You know, we started the high school word cheerleading jack in the 1930s, so he was running this company, but my grandmother really wasn't control, even though she wasn't there but.
00:15:18.030 --> 00:15:34.080 Robert Butwin: One day, he came in, because I loved making money as a caddy any actually I locked myself in the bathroom and he busted down the door, because he wanted me to go out and play golf and experience life not continually work, so I you know.
00:15:35.640 --> 00:15:40.860 Robert Butwin: That That was what am I, you know as far back as I can remember my some of my experiences.
00:15:41.310 --> 00:15:44.850 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: um that's interesting you know I used to say that that.
00:15:45.450 --> 00:15:56.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I started off being an entrepreneur in about 1993 when I left the corporate world and started working for myself, but then, as I was telling you know telling this story more frequently I realized well actually it's not quite true.
00:15:56.850 --> 00:16:04.620 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because when I was a little kid growing up in the bronx I remember, was a junior high school, I think, was junior end like then last year of junior high school.
00:16:04.890 --> 00:16:13.890 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I used to go around with a friend of mine on Saturday nights and we get a bundle of papers off the the newspaper truck that was delivering the Sunday papers.
00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:18.570 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: We buy a bundle and then we'd go around to all the bars in the neighborhood especially wintertime.
00:16:18.990 --> 00:16:30.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we'd sell them like the Sunday paper, the time this is how long ago was was like 25 cents and we would sell them for 50 cents in the bars and then sometimes we'd get a tip, especially from the bartenders.
00:16:30.480 --> 00:16:36.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we go around to like, and you know it's a nice Irish Italian a Jewish neighborhood and there was tons of pubs.
00:16:36.630 --> 00:16:50.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: In the neighborhood so we'd go up along kingsbridge road down fordham road we'd hit up maybe 30 to 50 bars in the night and make like 30 bucks 50 bucks for about an hour and a half, two hours worth of work and I thought this was great because I wasn't getting that much of it.
00:16:51.780 --> 00:16:57.870 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So I didn't realize my entrepreneurial roots actually go back to when I was a kid that when I was an adult.
00:16:58.530 --> 00:17:05.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So anyway, Robert let's let's let's hold it there for a moment and then, when we come back from break, I want to talk about.
00:17:06.630 --> 00:17:12.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: kind of how things develop, for you, you know kind of after school, you know what what your.
00:17:13.350 --> 00:17:24.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: kind of path kind of look like and what were some of those defining moments along the way to got you to be doing, you know what you've been doing for however long you've been doing what you're doing today okay.
00:17:24.570 --> 00:17:25.260 Robert Butwin: You got it.

00:19:53.640 --> 00:19:59.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity we're speaking this hour with Robert buck when.
00:19:59.970 --> 00:20:10.530 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Business strategist and networking mentor and Robert so we talked last segment a little bit about you know how since you were a young kid it's kind of almost in your DNA right your family.
00:20:11.490 --> 00:20:20.040 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Well, entrepreneurs so um did you go to college or did you go to work right after high school and did you start getting into business right away.
00:20:21.150 --> 00:20:32.430 Robert Butwin: You know my parents, you know always shoved the educational aspect down my throat, so I went to college and I probably resented it, you know, the only thing I really learned in college.
00:20:32.820 --> 00:20:38.820 Robert Butwin: was how to find the things that you needed to find I graduated from the University of Minnesota but I always.
00:20:39.180 --> 00:20:45.390 Robert Butwin: knew that I was going to go into our family business again we started the high school word cheerleading jacket business I love playing sports.
00:20:45.780 --> 00:20:52.410 Robert Butwin: And I saw myself being the oldest son three younger brothers that was going to run the business someday.
00:20:53.070 --> 00:21:05.520 Robert Butwin: But I didn't realize some of the situation that I came to realize later on and that's when I had to make a pivot which happened at about 1985 but I always expected to be running that business.
00:21:06.000 --> 00:21:15.690 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I see I see, and so, then what happened, like after you got out of college did did you start working in the business right away or did you do something else.
00:21:15.930 --> 00:21:25.860 Robert Butwin: No, I started working in the business but be between the paper routes and the other things I always had jobs, like, for example, I was a singing waiter at farrell's ice cream parlor.
00:21:26.610 --> 00:21:36.600 Robert Butwin: In snow cold booth at the Minnesota state fair was the number one booth that was there, so I mean i've always enjoyed working and making making money.
00:21:37.410 --> 00:21:52.620 Robert Butwin: And now it's you know beyond making money it's making a difference, but I expected to be running our family business until I had one of those defining moments, as I mentioned, we you know, through my life i've had different defining moments that have got me to where I am right now.
00:21:53.760 --> 00:22:07.620 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so what happened that really sort of shifted your attitude like what was that defining moment was listening to that Wayne Dyer tape or was it something else that really got you to sort of change your mindset around business and around what you were doing.
00:22:08.190 --> 00:22:18.540 Robert Butwin: With the first defining moment because I was doing almost everything in the business, and I was covering the twin cities, they increase the sales a half a million dollars in one year.
00:22:19.200 --> 00:22:25.440 Robert Butwin: They gave me like a $5,000 a year, a year raise i'm saying when I was making decent money, I said.
00:22:25.890 --> 00:22:34.530 Robert Butwin: These numbers don't add up, so I went to talk to my dad but my grandmother was controlling everything and I had other grant grant my cousins in the business.
00:22:35.160 --> 00:22:46.710 Robert Butwin: So it was like she didn't want her other her daughters coming to her and saying why is this one, making so much more than that one and so that was the first thing and so.
00:22:47.250 --> 00:23:06.300 Robert Butwin: Again, because when I went through college I sort of took the path of least resistance and so once that defining moment happen, then I went out to search for how I could improve myself and that's when I came across the Wayne Dyer series, and that was the next defining moment.
00:23:07.770 --> 00:23:21.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: yeah beautiful beautiful yeah Wayne Dyer was wonderful I love his work, I listened to many of his programs, I actually did a whole show attributed to him when when he passed.
00:23:23.130 --> 00:23:33.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So then son take us through like how did you get to from from running your family business, how did you are working in your family business, how did you get to you know what you're kind of doing today well.
00:23:33.660 --> 00:23:41.400 Robert Butwin: Once I started realizing that I had to take responsibility and I needed to figure out how to.
00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:51.390 Robert Butwin: gain the insights perspectives I started becoming a magnet for self education that came across Kim road, in fact, actually, I was on stage with Wayne Dyer once.
00:23:51.690 --> 00:24:01.830 Robert Butwin: With Jim rowan a couple of different times, but you know, there are so many things that I learned from you know, Jim Rome who was another one of mine, what I call indirect mentors you know, I was listening to his.
00:24:02.220 --> 00:24:12.900 Robert Butwin: audio tapes and I started to realize, and I think one of the saints was he can make a living by basically trading time for money as a job, you can make a fortune through.
00:24:13.530 --> 00:24:24.390 Robert Butwin: Self education, so I started listening in taking the insights that I gained in applying them in the marketplace and before I knew it.
00:24:24.900 --> 00:24:34.770 Robert Butwin: I got sort of like a riptide I sort of got caught up because I started getting involved in my own business, you know the side hustle your plan B and so making a lot of money.
00:24:35.370 --> 00:24:54.360 Robert Butwin: And so, in that carry me for a long you know, for a long period of time, because I was making a lot of money as a networker as helping other people recognize that there's always a plan B, you know how you can figure out how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
00:24:54.990 --> 00:25:01.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right yeah Very often we sometimes get stuck don't we in our mind of like.
00:25:01.410 --> 00:25:09.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: One way of doing something and I like to use the analogy of like the person who wants to be a movie Star and they think like the only.
00:25:09.360 --> 00:25:13.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: role for them is to be that actor in front of the camera and be the star of the film.
00:25:13.860 --> 00:25:20.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yet once they get involved in the industry, they realized well there's a whole bunch of other things you could do instead you could be a producer director.
00:25:21.060 --> 00:25:29.880 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: script writer production manager like like there's always different roles around which you could still be involved with the same kinds of things.
00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:42.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But we sometimes tend to be very linear and focused on just one thing and we think, I have to do that one thing or i'm not going to be happy, but the truth is they're probably many different things we can do, and still be happy.
00:25:43.380 --> 00:25:50.940 Robert Butwin: Exactly, and again I wasn't really sure and i've had my fear because again when I was in our family business.
00:25:51.540 --> 00:25:56.100 Robert Butwin: I knew that things needed to change, you know, and unless they made certain changes because.
00:25:56.400 --> 00:26:15.480 Robert Butwin: Their whole philosophy is it worked in the past it's going to work in the future, well, I came to the realization that's not necessarily the case which I, I obviously time has proven me right, but I knew that change had to happen for me to really be successful things need to change.
00:26:16.170 --> 00:26:25.140 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: awesome so so so what was that change what was the change, you made for yourself that that you feel really helped you to move forward in your life.
00:26:26.160 --> 00:26:33.540 Robert Butwin: Well, as I continually learn, for example, one of the things I one of the pieces that I came across early on was the E myth by Michael gerber.
00:26:33.810 --> 00:26:34.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Oh yes.
00:26:34.830 --> 00:26:40.050 Robert Butwin: yeah and he talks about four to five businesses are going to fail in the first five years, and he says, if you're one of the 20%.
00:26:40.590 --> 00:26:47.250 Robert Butwin: don't breathe a sigh of relief because four to five you're going to fail in the next five years and then he goes into telling why.
00:26:47.580 --> 00:26:54.450 Robert Butwin: But i'm listening to myself clock now I really didn't understand the power of self talk then but i'm saying that's not me.
00:26:55.230 --> 00:27:10.620 Robert Butwin: Failure is not an option, you know a lot of successes your mindset and the more that I continually poured the right insights into my mind, you know, and I i've always developed the right kind of mindset.
00:27:11.760 --> 00:27:20.340 Robert Butwin: You know that, no matter what happens in fact one of the other things that was very instrumental is a book by Dr Robert Anthony beyond positive thinking.
00:27:21.030 --> 00:27:35.280 Robert Butwin: And he talks about that we all have certain lessons to learn, and until we learn those lessons life will trip you up in the lesson you're supposed to learn, and that has been very relevant to me as i've continually progressed.
00:27:36.120 --> 00:27:50.610 Robert Butwin: Through the things that i've had to progress, but you know, again I continually focused on working on myself, and I still do that to this day, I listened to certain things you know again it's a balance between doing and growing.
00:27:51.390 --> 00:28:03.420 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: um yeah absolutely because it's we're only going to do, as well as we work on ourselves, you know it's one of those lessons I learned early on that.
00:28:04.680 --> 00:28:18.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It you know, making more money is not about necessarily working harder it's about changing who we are and how we show up and who were being to be the person that actually earns more money not.
00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:28.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, necessarily a better strategy or or a different business to get into it's really more about who are we being in the moment right.
00:28:28.770 --> 00:28:42.000 Robert Butwin: You know, one of my philosophies you know there's a direct relationship to the value and service that you bring to the marketplace and the rewards the marketplace will return, who is the marketplaces people.
00:28:42.810 --> 00:28:58.620 Robert Butwin: More than can share insights and perspectives and in one of the things i've said, for a long time, and I really believe this to be the truth, and I can go into different reasons why I believe that it's easier to be successful today as a solo printer entrepreneur than ever in the past.
00:28:58.860 --> 00:29:11.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely absolutely 100% agree, I mean with with technology with the Internet with social media, the way we can connect to people around the globe, I mean literally there are probably people listening to us.
00:29:12.420 --> 00:29:20.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Internationally, all over the place, and I see on the Facebook live loyal listener patty said she's sharing the show so it's even more people are going to see it.
00:29:21.180 --> 00:29:33.570 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it's definitely easier to do something different, and I think, especially since the pandemic hit we're now we're all at home, everybody is online, like everything is being done virtually.
00:29:33.900 --> 00:29:44.850 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's really opened things up in a way that I mean was there before but, most people just weren't really present to it in the past, where they.
00:29:45.780 --> 00:29:52.440 Robert Butwin: You know I think that's The key thing present to a, for example, before the pandemic, I was on linkedin because.
00:29:52.830 --> 00:30:06.270 Robert Butwin: In again when I originally started on linkedin I was sort of like ignorance on fire, I didn't know what I really was doing but I started connecting with people, but my whole strategy was to meet people online get them offline yeah.
00:30:07.320 --> 00:30:17.310 Robert Butwin: So, but again with the pandemic at shift shifted in it's even becoming easier and I can go into reasons why it's easier now than before.
00:30:17.700 --> 00:30:22.560 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right yeah I mean the same thing that's like happened with our station talk radio nyc.
00:30:23.340 --> 00:30:29.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Before the pandemic, we used to have the hosts come in studio locally everyone had to be within the New York City.
00:30:29.880 --> 00:30:40.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: metro area now we're doing everything through zoom and I have hosts all over the place in Jersey Connecticut long island, we know potentially even Texas California Europe.
00:30:40.740 --> 00:30:59.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it's really because it's forced us to pivot and go from in studio to virtual it's now opened up the station to such a huge market that, not that I didn't see the possibility, but without being forced to do it, I might not necessarily have made that decision so quickly.
00:31:00.600 --> 00:31:07.500 Robert Butwin: Exactly what you're saying forced to do it it's like when the pandemic kit it's like all of a sudden you've got all these virtual networking events.
00:31:07.890 --> 00:31:21.540 Robert Butwin: So now you've got linkedin and it's very important to have the right kind of profile on linkedin but you're able to be other networking in the latest craze if you're not on it, yet assuming that you've got an iPhone is clubhouse.
00:31:21.630 --> 00:31:21.930 club.
00:31:23.130 --> 00:31:40.770 Robert Butwin: So many different ways to meet the right people in the biggest thing or the biggest mistake that I see most entrepreneurs, making is they focus on a pitch focus on the transaction before they look at creating a relationship mmm.
00:31:42.210 --> 00:31:50.280 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Excellent excellent you know I want to get really more in depth with that, because of the importance of relationships and the importance of really.
00:31:50.820 --> 00:32:05.250 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Being in service because, because I think that's something that people will really serve them if they truly understand it, but we need to take a break, right now, so everybody, please stay tuned hold on when we come back we're going to talk more about.
00:32:07.050 --> 00:32:15.990 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Not just finding your tribe but, but the difference between being out there to just pitch somebody about what you're what you want, what you're trying to do.
00:32:16.260 --> 00:32:22.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: versus really showing up in service and why that difference is so important.
00:32:22.560 --> 00:32:28.770 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So everybody, please stay tuned you're listening to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity, we do this every Thursday.

00:35:07.980 --> 00:35:16.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity before we get back to our conversation with Robert I just also want to quickly mention.
00:35:17.310 --> 00:35:28.200 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: For those people who have been tuning in and listening to talk radio dot nyc for a while now that we are operating virtually and I have hosts coming to us and doing programs from all over the country and all over the world.
00:35:28.890 --> 00:35:41.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: This is an opportunity, if you think you have an idea message, something you want to get out that is an alignment with the different shows we have on the network being empowering uplifting educational having some fun.
00:35:42.330 --> 00:35:53.340 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: we'd love to hear from you, you can email me at Sam at talk radio dot nyc and we could set up a conversation for for see whether it's the right fit for you.
00:35:54.030 --> 00:36:01.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But if you're interested in doing having your own show and connecting to an audience, this would be a great time to come on board.
00:36:01.770 --> 00:36:05.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, Robert before we went to break, we were talking about the importance of.
00:36:06.210 --> 00:36:16.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: connecting with people of developing people and and and really serving people now you've made and done, been very successful in the network marketing industry which is.
00:36:16.920 --> 00:36:24.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, not an industry for everybody and lots of people are doing it as a sort of like you said, a plan B a side hustle.
00:36:24.720 --> 00:36:33.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But one of the things I feel a lot of people don't realize with network marketing that it's really all about people isn't it it's all about.
00:36:33.450 --> 00:36:47.490 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: cultivating relationships it's all about developing people to help them to be successful, for themselves and as Ziegler, used to say right if you help enough other people to have their dreams you won't have to worry about yours.
00:36:48.930 --> 00:36:57.150 Robert Butwin: You know you're 100% correct one of my mentors a long time ago, said, if you build people people build businesses, the biggest thing you're dealing with.
00:36:57.780 --> 00:37:10.020 Robert Butwin: Is other people's perception their perception is their reality if you take the time to get to know them and help them shift perception, first of all that whole business has changed because of technology.
00:37:10.440 --> 00:37:26.100 Robert Butwin: You know it's really if people understood really what mo m is in I could give you a couple simple acronyms it's making life meaningful making lots of money or making love more you can pick any one you want, but really what it is it's it's.
00:37:27.450 --> 00:37:37.200 Robert Butwin: An alternative distribution methodology it's a leveraged business model that you've got a vested interest to help other people, people think it's about.
00:37:37.620 --> 00:37:48.600 Robert Butwin: Trying to sell products, no products are important don't get me wrong, but really it's about educating people educating people and again with technology.
00:37:49.020 --> 00:37:58.050 Robert Butwin: If somebody is open, if you've got the right relationship they're going to receive the information, but if they feel that you're just looking at them.
00:37:58.500 --> 00:38:07.170 Robert Butwin: As money as a way that they're going to make you money see a lot of the myths in that kind of business, you know, and let me get the clear.
00:38:07.590 --> 00:38:21.480 Robert Butwin: You know if if I got you involved in a particular company it's not that you're going to make me money i'm going to go to work for you to help you make money so it's the antithesis of what a lot of times people think about that business.
00:38:22.020 --> 00:38:36.330 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right and and the same principles even apply to general business networking right if you if you go to a networking event, and it could be a virtual event, these days, if you connect with somebody there and.
00:38:37.080 --> 00:38:46.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: They kind of have you in their crosshairs they're like looking at you like Oh, I can sell them my web services or my financial planning services or you know, whatever they happen to be doing.
00:38:47.190 --> 00:38:58.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And you feel this from them like your their lunch right you're not going to want to stick around with them right you're going to be like okay nice to meet you goodbye and you'll talk to somebody else.
00:38:58.740 --> 00:39:08.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So the sort of the same rule applies, regardless of what kind of industry you're in or or how you doing it's really if you want to connect with people.
00:39:09.030 --> 00:39:21.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and, ultimately, I think people are really now beginning to understand that really the true power is in the power of your network that power of the people who you have connections with your community.
00:39:21.510 --> 00:39:33.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That if you're looking at the people in your community as if they're going to be the people to support you and pay you and give you money and it's all about you, they ain't going to be sticking around very long, are they.
00:39:33.420 --> 00:39:48.930 Robert Butwin: You know that's totally true, in fact, the best way to develop relationships is first of all ask real questions meaningful questions so that they know you're one of the words you used as empathetic I believe.
00:39:50.010 --> 00:39:56.100 Robert Butwin: As you are connecting with them, but the second thing that you want to do is as you're finding out about them.
00:39:56.370 --> 00:40:01.800 Robert Butwin: Is figure out something you can do to help them now there's a couple of different things that you can do it might be the fact that you.
00:40:02.310 --> 00:40:11.940 Robert Butwin: guide them to some information, you know there's a lot of stuff people can get it get to for free on YouTube it could be the fact that because you've got a network.
00:40:12.390 --> 00:40:20.250 Robert Butwin: In my network is phenomenal, in fact, one of the guys that I met in one of the things calls me the godfather and networking actually.
00:40:21.600 --> 00:40:28.620 Robert Butwin: You know, it just so happens, my mother was in the wedding of who I believe is the godfather of networking, which is Harvey mackay.
00:40:29.160 --> 00:40:29.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Oh.
00:40:29.730 --> 00:40:33.450 Robert Butwin: He was in his sister's wedding and you know.
00:40:34.530 --> 00:40:48.300 Robert Butwin: there's still very close, you know the family, but again, the key is being a value being a trusted advisor figuring out what you can do, because then people are going to want to do business with you, no matter what business you're in.
00:40:48.720 --> 00:40:58.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right it's kind of like my friend Cynthia when she teaches people about networking the way she talks about it's the difference between being a hunter and a farmer.
00:40:59.340 --> 00:41:03.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So when you're a hunter it's it's you know shoot, kill eat.
00:41:03.810 --> 00:41:16.650 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But when you're a farmer you're cultivating relationships you're fertilizing the soil you're you're connecting you're doing things for the your your network for your contacts which are your plans.
00:41:17.130 --> 00:41:30.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then, over time, as you do this and you provide real value, then the those relationships will bloom and they'll they'll fruit will come off those trees falling off and you'll have more than enough to eat.
00:41:30.510 --> 00:41:39.270 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because you've done the right things to really cultivate that relationship and often that's coming from a place of service, how can you help.
00:41:39.720 --> 00:41:55.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know what kind of challenge at just asking that question of your contacts, what are your challenges, these days, how can I help you who can I introduce you to what can I do that's going to help you with whatever or support you with whatever.
00:41:57.090 --> 00:42:00.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: you're facing these days to move forward and reach your goals.
00:42:01.020 --> 00:42:11.370 Robert Butwin: Exactly focused on being of service to the other person see you, unfortunately, most people are thinking me if you take the M and flip it upside down, what do you have.
00:42:11.700 --> 00:42:26.790 Robert Butwin: We we exactly focus on how to be how to collaborate how to create some kind of joint venture how to be of service to the other person, because then they're gonna want to do business with you.
00:42:27.300 --> 00:42:40.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right, because who doesn't like to give back to somebody who's given to us right who who doesn't want to work with people help people who've helped us without us really even asking for the help.
00:42:41.190 --> 00:42:52.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know when we're genuine when we're aligned, when we were really coming from our heart it just people naturally respond to that from their own hearts don't.
00:42:52.410 --> 00:43:00.450 Robert Butwin: 100% true you know it's i've verified validated that in the marketplace, you know.
00:43:01.800 --> 00:43:02.910 Robert Butwin: In again.
00:43:03.960 --> 00:43:07.500 Robert Butwin: With everything going on it's easier to meet people if you.
00:43:08.520 --> 00:43:11.400 Robert Butwin: practice and do the right principles right.
00:43:11.730 --> 00:43:20.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right exactly exactly and and things have really shifted a lot and I was talking with someone and they were talking about how.
00:43:22.410 --> 00:43:33.390 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Before the pandemic things were already starting to shift where the the percentage of people in the general population, who were working for companies versus working for themselves.
00:43:34.230 --> 00:43:39.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: it's some it was something like 75% working for other people 25% working for themselves.
00:43:40.140 --> 00:43:49.050 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And the projections were something like over the next 10 to 20 years that would start to shift and maybe even out a bit and be a little bit more 5050.
00:43:49.560 --> 00:43:59.850 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But what they said now with the pandemic and everything happening it's almost like it's it's pushing that it's accelerating that that more and more people are having to.
00:44:00.150 --> 00:44:13.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Not by choice, but just out of sheer survival having to become more entrepreneurial with their mindset having to find ways of bringing value to the marketplace, because just the jobs don't exist that used to exist, a year ago.
00:44:15.030 --> 00:44:23.640 Robert Butwin: I mean that's part of a plus I think you know, first of all because the penta endemic I think people are much more open authentic.
00:44:24.150 --> 00:44:34.740 Robert Butwin: and willing to take a look at possible other ways to rather than just trade their time for money me all because in reality when you're working a job.
00:44:35.130 --> 00:44:46.350 Robert Butwin: you're building somebody else's dream, you know you're you're really end up settling for less than you can become I mean that's the reality so once people have that shift that.
00:44:47.550 --> 00:44:56.040 Robert Butwin: understanding and based on all the technology and working with the right practices.
00:44:56.610 --> 00:45:09.990 Robert Butwin: you're able to figure out what you're really passionate it's like what Simon cynics semak talks about understanding why you're doing what you're doing when people realize that.
00:45:10.770 --> 00:45:21.240 Robert Butwin: you're connected with something that's higher that higher purpose, yes and you're able to communicate that properly people are going to want to be part of what you're doing.
00:45:22.080 --> 00:45:25.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yes, absolutely absolutely it's it's all about.
00:45:27.150 --> 00:45:37.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know it's sort of like when we show up in a better way when we show up in a way that we end up being a good role model for other people.
00:45:37.470 --> 00:45:55.440 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That inspires them and then they want to show up better themselves it's kind of that old adage of we can't change anybody else we can only change ourselves, but we show up better we can be an inspiration to allow other people to show up better for themselves.
00:45:56.160 --> 00:46:05.310 Robert Butwin: Exactly you know, again, people are judging it's not what you say it's what you do it's how you how you're being that person.
00:46:06.330 --> 00:46:14.070 Robert Butwin: Is the key and one of the things that came up with a long time ago, because I know you talked a little bit at the beginning about Abraham I came up with the five a's in the law of attraction.
00:46:14.520 --> 00:46:23.850 Robert Butwin: You know, one of the things that the secret did is really a brought to the consciousness level that people can virtually attract whatever they want to attract I mean I.

00:51:52.800 --> 00:52:15.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Beautiful beautiful a B, C D success in business, they said pastor vs So let me ask you for someone listening today, you know, maybe they're having a little bit of hard time with the new environment we're in and the pandemic um what advice would you give somebody who let's say.
00:52:16.680 --> 00:52:24.750 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know, maybe they're still working or maybe they're they're there they've got laid off they're not quite sure what to do that they're really.
00:52:25.350 --> 00:52:34.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: having a hard time dealing with this new environment and and not going out there, what would you suggest to people who are in some challenge at the moment.
00:52:34.500 --> 00:52:41.850 Robert Butwin: A couple of different things, I would suggest them go to YouTube and watch the movie or read the book who moved my cheese.
00:52:42.990 --> 00:52:53.910 Robert Butwin: Is change happens so The point is, are you going to be a victim of the change are you going to be a byproduct of it, how are you going to use the changes that are going on in the marketplace.
00:52:54.420 --> 00:53:05.340 Robert Butwin: To allow you to create what you want you've got to get into action, first of all, you got to recognize the reality and then you've got to get into action and make something happen.
00:53:05.730 --> 00:53:08.730 Robert Butwin: You know there's an old saying when the students ready the teacher will appear.
00:53:09.150 --> 00:53:15.990 Robert Butwin: No, I started off with indirect mentors you know the books and CDs and everything else and try finding the right mentors.
00:53:16.350 --> 00:53:28.260 Robert Butwin: But again you've got to get into action, know that everything that's happening to you as long as you get into action is serving you, you know it doesn't matter what's happening, if you realize.
00:53:28.980 --> 00:53:36.300 Robert Butwin: That it ultimately is going to serve you and that we all deserve to become successful look at this as a sign.
00:53:36.690 --> 00:53:53.880 Robert Butwin: One of the things I realized is most people miss the signs they sit back and play the victim role, you know what i'm talking about the signs, you know I asked people quite often, the question what color are yield signs and you know answerable what.
00:53:54.240 --> 00:53:58.320 Robert Butwin: yellow no they haven't been yellow for over 40 years.
00:53:58.440 --> 00:54:03.810 Robert Butwin: Really, their red and white and how many of them debbie drove driven by.
00:54:04.590 --> 00:54:19.620 Robert Butwin: bottom line is you know right now there's never been a better time to become an entrepreneur, you know there's I mean look at how many you know people are making so much money as influence influencers i'd, be it youtuber tick tock now you've got clubhouse.
00:54:19.770 --> 00:54:24.450 Robert Butwin: yeah that'd become awakened and realize that a.
00:54:25.470 --> 00:54:30.570 Robert Butwin: it's the best time to be alive, in fact, one of the things I say, as I tell you this.
00:54:32.010 --> 00:54:47.010 Robert Butwin: 57 years ago, the day after my birthday my cousin released a song, as I tell you that I never met him, but his mother was in my wedding at my wedding the title of the song was the answer my friend is blowing in the wind.
00:54:48.030 --> 00:54:52.620 Robert Butwin: That was seven years ago today it's on the Internet yeah you know.
00:54:53.700 --> 00:54:59.730 Robert Butwin: that's part of the reason I know why you're doing continually doing the show to shift people's consciousness.
00:55:00.030 --> 00:55:15.480 Robert Butwin: that's the reason why you do the things that you do is to help other people accelerate the success and become more aware that they can take responsibility and do what they want to do it, make a living doing that right.
00:55:15.630 --> 00:55:27.870 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Exactly exactly it's all about sort of not resisting what is being present and looking for the opportunity and looking for the opportunity that truly resonates and align with you.
00:55:28.320 --> 00:55:36.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because people these days they're not putting up with bs way they used to, so let me ask you, Robert if you would look into your crystal ball.
00:55:37.140 --> 00:55:46.950 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and you were trying to say like what's going to be and I know it's kind of difficult these days what's going to happen next year, two years, three years, four years, five years I wouldn't go any further than five years.
00:55:47.430 --> 00:56:00.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But but, but what what trends in business, do you see that have like happened that you feel it's like either, this is the future, this is the present reality and it's going to stay our reality reality for moving forward in the future.
00:56:00.990 --> 00:56:06.090 Robert Butwin: Well, let me first of all, tell you that my crystal ball is clear, but it's not crystal clear so.
00:56:06.630 --> 00:56:22.290 Robert Butwin: Okay, what I could do is through this year, I believe that there's not going to be much change unless you make the changes, meaning the fact, then the vaccination coming out half of our population is going to take it, the half the other half isn't probably going to take it.
00:56:22.650 --> 00:56:30.540 Robert Butwin: I don't believe that the pandemic is going to go away and there'll be other strains now i'm not saying that to become to put fear into your mind.
00:56:31.020 --> 00:56:44.430 Robert Butwin: But you need to recognize the reality, the truth and take the appropriate action and, if you take responsibility in focus on how you can be of service to the marketplace, how you can.
00:56:45.300 --> 00:56:56.190 Robert Butwin: expand your network, because you probably heard the same that your that your net worth is in direct relationship to the value of your network, so if you can expand your network can bring more value to.
00:56:56.910 --> 00:57:11.670 Robert Butwin: Your network and ultimately the right people will come into your network or come into your consciousness level, and as long as you do, the proper action, I think that the future is very bright hmm.
00:57:11.790 --> 00:57:27.660 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Beautiful beautiful yeah it's really it's feels more and more, the world has gotten smaller in a way that we're much more interconnected with people who are very far away and that our communities.
00:57:28.140 --> 00:57:46.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Are not local communities anymore they're virtual communities and that, as we connect in services we've talked about throughout the show with people around the globe, that we can really create more Community around us, even if they're not physically around us right.
00:57:46.800 --> 00:57:47.760 Robert Butwin: Totally I mean.
00:57:48.960 --> 00:57:57.150 Robert Butwin: The answer is yes, I mean i'm talking to people throughout the whole world Asia Europe, I mean you're in New York i'm in California.
00:57:57.990 --> 00:58:08.820 Robert Butwin: And it's easier to connect with people, and you can create whatever you want to create as long as you've got the consciousness and you get into proper action right.
00:58:09.030 --> 00:58:16.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right exactly exactly all right, Robert it's almost the end of the show I would be remiss if I didn't.
