Nexgeon.com - 4X in 11 weeks

 

Leon Castillo

Welcome Mr. Yannick Halm. How are you doing? Thank you for jumping in.

Yannick Halm

Hey, Leon doing fantastic. Great to see you. 

Leon Castillo

How's Koln? How's Cologne?

Yannick Halm

Oh, it's getting warmer here. Yes, still lockdown, still time to work on the business.

Leon Castillo

Got it. So how long have you been with us? How many weeks so far? 

Yannick Halm

Currently, I'm in my 11th week. So almost 12 weeks. And it's amazing what happened in the last three months. 

Leon Castillo

Tell me about it. So what happened?

Yannick Halm

So I sign up for Selfmastered because I know what problems I have in my personal and in my professional life, but I didn't know how to fix them. So I didn't I know I had the problems but I need to ask to talk to a doctor who can prescribe me the right things because I was so overwhelmed with all these tactics you could do to grow and to increase revenue and grow your business and grow your self. And I finally found my favorite doctor Leon. And I was implementing his strategy full focus on his strategy and I just looked back before I joined Selfmastered what how I saw things how I saw the business how I saw my personal life. And it was totally different. It was like, feels like another person wrote these things. 

Leon Castillo

Men love to hear that is the power of complex systems. And tell us a little bit because you've had, I mean, you've run a marathon, even during this time in just eight short weeks. So tell us a little bit, all the milestones that you have been able to achieve by using our methodology to grow your health, your self-development, your business. 

Yannick Halm

Yeah, so my, my first one thing I'm proud of is running a marathon. As you said, it was funny, because I didn't have this goal. At the beginning of the roadmap, I knew I need to lose weight. And I know I need to improve my cardiovascular fitness. And I had this dream of running a marathon for the past twelve years. And I, but I never had a proper strategy to achieve this. And with your help and Selfmastered I found out, okay, I need to do these things according to run a marathon and don't be too complex at it. So I before I joined Selfmastered, I was tracking all metrics. I was writing everything down. And I didn't have feedback to look at. I just had a lot of metrics. And I was overwhelmed. And I couldn't get any action insights out of the metrics. And with your help with a simple dashboard, I just said, Okay, I need to run three times a week, 10 kilometers, stretch enough, rest enough, sleep enough, which is actually very hard when you plan it out. And then after 10 weeks, I just said, okay, it's I cannot sign up for a marathon during the lockdown here in Germany, but I have a running app, which can tell me when I finished 42 kilometers, and I just run and it's was so great. I was I was on the runner's high, like the people say, so just running, keep going. And after, yeah, I think it was around five hours, it was not super fast. But the improvement was very great.

Leon Castillo

Dude, it's amazing. So you enter the program, trying to willing to reorganize the way you work. And yet at the same time, you end up accidentally running a marathon, something you've ever wanted to do. That's, that's great. That's incredible. Man, congrats on that. And on the self-management skills that you know, we take self-management to the extreme to the stream of performance, how has your work evolved? How do you see yourself in business differently? What is the biggest nuggets that you have extracted from the methodology that has helped you the most?

Yannick Halm

So one main thing was becoming a system thinker. So when you're in the digital marketing space, and you're mostly talked to digital marketing guys, and everything's so fast-moving and everyone is giving you the next tech, the next growth hack, which will improve your 10x your business in one day. And you listen to this and you try to implement it, oftentimes it didn't work and I was on this track. Yeah, just so deep in this niche that I don't know if I am on the right track if I have the right strategy and after four weeks into the program when or three weeks into the program when I watched a module about the "System of You" and "The system of the business", I totally saw things differently. I know okay, I'm, I'm in a different I'm not in this small performance marketing niche where we thought we are but we are in the digital business niche where we want to grow our business not only through these small hexes but just doing the right things in the right way. And just skip all these time, time-consuming tasks, which didn't move the needle forward. And it's so crazy to see how easy life can be with a proper system and you can still as grow. So this was, this was crazy to see because I achieved so much more in a short amount of time, just to give a nugget for the listeners by ringfencing. So crazy. This is changing the way you see things and see work and see immediate feedback on how you perform. I love it.

Leon Castillo

The Selfmastered Protocol is such a game-changer, right? 

Yannick Halm

Yeah, exactly.

Leon Castillo

And because you said you were already a productivity geek, so you were very into productivity apps, and how to extract the best return on your time invested, but then the dashboard changed the game for you. So how did that happen? And how do you implement and how the protocols change the way you manage yourself in business?

Yannick Halm

I think the one key thing was just to go all-in with your system. So because I was a productivity geek, I like to, I like to Pomodoro Technique, I like to have a physical time tracker where I can have a cube and I move it to the right side, and it tracks my work. So I always knew I need to record my work and look at the replay like we do here in Selfmastered but in a totally different way. And so I knew many things from many books and free youtube videos, but I couldn't put them all together. And when you go through the program, you seem okay, it's now you understand everything but it's like, a little bit like a glue where everything fits together, you know, you know, those loose things before that it's important, but you don't see the whole picture. And we are with With your help, I saw it and it's amazing, you know, I'm never going back.

Leon Castillo

You're not going back, right? And how has a business revenue-wise has that increased once you put the initiatives you've put forth.

Yannick Halm

So I can see that's already mentioned before, like when we just want to talk about the return on investment for the Selfmastered program. So for the last three, three months, the return on investment from the new business opportunities that were created, was like 4X in the first three months. So it was literally the best investment I could do. So forget stocks, forget cryptos - it is bullshit. It Selfmastered has made the biggest return on investment. The great thing is that now the compound effect is kicking in. And yeah,  so our business model is that we create new business units in different countries for a specific niche hence, before it took us, yeah, to open one new business in a new country, like three weeks with planning with the detailed structure of setting up the team. And when I watched Selfmastered I rewrote all checklists, all SOPs how to run it and now we can launch in a new country in less than one week. Because we have the perfect setup and this was just achieving more with less basically. 

Leon Castillo

Then amazing so you took the system thinking that we use for personal performance and scale-up that to the business and you got a 4x revenue that's incredible. That's incredible. And as you said the compounding effect has not even started to kick in yet. It's your 11 weeks into the program. Imagine in three months.

Yannick Halm

Exactly. Or in three years. 

Leon Castillo

Or in three years! 'Cos as we say once Selfmastered, always Selfmastered. So you're part of the community now. Tell us a little bit about that. How do you envision the Performance School? How has it helped you? What our research team provides additional proven research that actually expands the curriculum. How do you feel about everything that happens on the Performance School.

Yannick Halm

First of all, it's a great community of people who just want more from business and from personal life. And because yeah, I think Germans are always a little bit skeptical, known for being skeptical and so when I, this is maybe backstory, but then I saw Selfmastered and I signed up to the newsletter, and I saw the first newsletter, I think it was just a random autoresponder and I replied to the autoresponder because there was a question at the end, and I got an answer within minutes from Leon and think, Okay, this is crazy, this real person reading all those emails and then I booked a call and I said, Okay, this guy can help me the Spanish guy help me and but I was a little bit skeptical because the industry and you may be you know, there are many people you may be not trusted and you think, okay, maybe they are not giving you the value that they tell you, they will give and then I did. Yeah, I booked the call with you. And one day later, I signed up for Selfmastered Evolution. And I got into the performance school, this the holy Performance School, and this does this. So I was so fascinated with how everything was from the onboarding. Now, the communication responsiveness from the whole team yeah the content that everyone  just wants to help the other person so there are persons in this group writing like three-four pages from things they already know because they just want to share with other people and they haven't seen this before so there was you see people doing this but they always want to sell you something or they want your contact details on everything when you see the internet and in a Performance School they're just people putting so much passion and effort into publishing new information on helping everyone getting better so it's the best school I've ever been in (and I've been to many schools) and it's yeah it's changing the game completely changing the game

Leon Castillo

We're building the best self-management performance school in the internet and it's a global community and once you become part of it you never get you never go out of it so again we're just started and it's going really well right?

Yannick Halm

Yes

Leon Castillo

So, would you recommend it? 

Yannick Halm

Yes, this is actually what I wanted to tell you I I'm a little bit passive when I talk about these things because when you talk about peak performance and self-mastery in Europe you have to talk to people who are aware that they are lacking this, yeah you cannot go to anyone on your friends or business partners or friends and just tell you to need this because they are not in the mental state that they need a program or coaching and I just talked with two friends about this and yeah they sign up and now they are also in the Selfmastered Performance School & Program and it's crazy because they gave me the feedback they are thankful that I talked to talk about with this about this with them. 

Leon Castillo

Love to see it!

Yannick Halm

I totally recommend it

Leon Castillo

And will grow and grow and I love how you said that Germans are natural skeptics and we've noticed that the best customers we have are the skeptics and I don't know if it's correlation or causation but the biggest community within the Selfmastered community is german people it's not even Spanish people (because it's originally a Spanish methodology) I think it's the data approach that we use right because we use actual data to solidify performance improvements over time so you can track them and I think that's really relatable to you guys to german people right yeah that's interesting.

Yannick Halm

Yes yes um yeah

 

Leon Castillo

Yeah, I think we're losing a little bit of signal anyway yeah it's been an amazing pleasure like every time we speak to thank you very much for coming in and sharing your experience, and let's see us around Performance School I suggest you don't run another marathon the next 12 weeks you have already proven yourself you don't need to do it again right you need to take care of yourself.

Yannick Halm 

Yes, thank you.

Leon Castillo 

Thank you very much it's been it's been great having you have a wonderful day and let's see you around the Selfmastered Performance School.

Yannick Halm 

Yeah, thank you very much thank you.
