    How To Fix Ourselves Before Criticizing Others with Dr. David Buss

    “Machiavellianism is when people pursue in an interpersonally exploitative strategy.” - Dr. David Buss

    (click to tweet)

    We are all flawed.

    But instead of trying to fix our own issues, we point the flaws in other people. This is an inescapable part of the human condition; it’s easier to look outwards than it is to look inwards.

    On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by world-renowned evolutionary psychologist, Dr. David Buss, to discuss how to fix ourselves. Professor Buss is the author of The New Science of the Mind, and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Austin. He has previously taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan, and today he explains the mechanics behind human psychology.

    “We evolved in small groups, and all groups have status hierarchies. From an evolutionary perspective, reproductively relevant resources always accrue to those with the highest status.” - Dr. David Buss

    Points to Keep In Mind

    • Recently-funded startups get pressure from investors to spend money to make the next Uber. Use Crunchbase news to find which ones just received their money
    • Most business owners don’t know how to use social media.
    • Solicit business by explaining your value in a video
      • Point out that you can do the job for cheaper than what the job posting offers
    • Craigslist over Indeed.com if you’re just beginning to seek out clients online
      • Those businesses are smaller and more willing to take you on
    • When pitching your services via email - email both the CEO and the investors with where you think the company is messing up and how you can fix it
    • The easiest money-maker and best service to offer is paid ad management (PPC)
    • Google AdWords, Facebook Support Center, and YouTube is the new ad-school
    • Start with small adjustments, like slightly improving the banner image on a Facebook page
    • Charge a flat fee plus a percentage of spend

    The $1 Million Body: What Biology Can Teach You About Business

    Problems hiring? Go to ziprecruiter.com/tai for a smarter way to hire for FREE!

     

    “Biology works by trial & error, and then it keeps the best. If you apply that to business, it’s a very powerful heuristic.” - Tai Lopez

    (click to tweet)

    In evolution, the environment selects which genes to push forward.

    And in business, the market determines which ideas are successful. Both biology and entrepreneurship rely on something external to tell them what to do. Thus, we can learn how to build a business from examining the principles of biology.

    On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing why trial and error is the most effective approach to building something great. While developing your product or service inside a locked room might seem like the right thing to do, you must let the environment influence the design. If you don’t, you run the risk of building an idea that people won’t want. So tune in to today’s episode to learn why your $1-million idea only comes from listening to your environment!

    “People learn the most by osmosis. Just being around other people. There should be more internships, apprenticeships, and shadowing.” - Tai Lopez
