In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, talks about the four different ways that you can share what you know to generate income. You are going to learn about the four primary business models and get an introduction about how you can scale and leverage it.

Why this is important is because if you don’t get it right, you get tired, have no impact and there is no future with what it is you’ve got to work with. But when we get it right, you will feel a greater flow, you will be valued higher and it leads to better income.

So, the things that you need to know are:

  • What fits with you: How you want your life to be in this lifestyle business
  • Create curriculum and process: Package your knowledge properly to be effective
  • Scale vs leverage: How you leverage what you know versus scaling and growing everything together
The Practice Spectrum

This framework helps you decide on the type of practice that you can do. On one axis there’s ‘process’ and on the other it’s ‘intellectual property access’.

  • 1 to 1: It is the hours for dollars model. You have a specific hourly rate and you swap your time for it. It has a limit to it when it comes to increasing your income as there are limited number of hours in a day. You have to think about moving up from here.
  • 1 to Many: There are different ways you can do one to many like with seminars, speaking sessions, online video/audio. A lot of times it is in speaking sessions where you impact many people with a single content that you deliver.
  • 1 to Few: It’s about giving more access to you. So you limit the number to small groups. It is higher priced as you give more access to your intellectual property, wisdom and knowledge.
  • Many to Many: A higher level situation that you need to build up before trying. You can go many to many by licensing your process. Train other people about your results, procedures and frameworks so they can deliver for you.

We will talk about Scaling and Leveraging a Practice in the next episode but to set the lay of the land, there are four primary ways of business models: (1) Time, (2) Product, (3) Hybrid and (4) License based.
