Kicking Ass & Taking Names

Alright Ladies and Gents,

2 months ago I had a seminar in San Diego.  Over 400 people showed up and it was an absolutely AMAZING event.

This was my favorite presentation from the event.

It’s not about techniques or some formula I use… instead you’ll learn exactly how doing ONLY what I like makes me MORE money.

Check it out:

Talk soon,

    You’re killing me. I love it. Way too many cookie-cut copy cats out there, so thanks for keeping it real and just being yourself and encouraging everyone else to do the same!

    Dude awesome AWESOME stuff. My app is in development now (after a month of apple roadblocking me :( , but we’re good now :D)


  11. Pablo says:

    I would love to see more presenters like you.. simple, clear, to the point (but with humor!) thanks for that!

  12. rick says:

    Trey: Great presentation! I hope to catch you live some time. I only have one question: why would you have 2 houses in San Diego? Is one of them your office? I will say, though, that it is beautiful out there – La Jolla is one of my favorite spots.

    • treysmith says:

      Yes, have an office that is a little house across from the beach. Just got back from surfing in LJ… Love it here!

  13. Candi May says:

    Love this Trey!!! Thanks for sending us down the right path!!

  14. Andre says:

    Awesome video, Trey – thanks for sharing. Rock n Roll and a lotta things to now… ;-)



  15. Luke says:

    Awesome post Trey!! You rocked this vid LIKE A BOSS!

  16. Kick ass video Trey, your were always on point. Thanks for the tadalist, that was a life saver.

  17. shafiq says:

    Thanks for sharing this great video Trey Smith..

    Is this a part of Software System Course Video?

  18. Robertas says:

    Awesome video! Thanks Trey.

    Little bit of offtopic: For Jump Pack was it you who produced the music? :)

  19. V. Copia says:

    I’d love to share this video of this on my FB page. Great info for those starting out. Keen reminders for those who’ve been swimming in the deep end for a while, as well.

    Tried inserting the post’s url, but only got a link back to the post, and not the video player, itself, on my FB page. Am a bit of a geek, too, and drilled down the vid’s “home,” hereabouts: xxxxxxxxx, and inserted that url into my FB post – but no luck producing more than another hyperlink on my FB page.

    Is this vid shared elsewhere, like YouTube? Would you consider providing a “share” link in the command bar of the video player? Or, might you advise alternatively how we might be able to accomplish same, so we may introduce this vid to the world? A playable vid on a FB page seems to get many more clicks than a link that takes to user elsewhere.

    Much thanks!

  20. Ruben says:

    Good looking, some unique and diferent.

  21. Hey Trey,

    This was just what I needed. I always get a lot done when I make to do lists but I rarely make them. Thats for the tip with the Ta Da List.

    I did what you suggested and make my home page.


  22. treysmith says:

    Thanks guys! Glad you are enjoying it.

    V. Copia, I’d prefer you just link to the blog instead of just the video (actually I don’t think it’s possible to link just to the video).



  23. jon says:

    nice presentation :), but no download links :(

    I’m in half way through the iPhone system course.

  24. Arren says:

    Great advice Trey, great end to a great day for my business.

  25. Louise says:

    Perfect title – kick ass – I’ve walked away with so many valuable tips. Don’t stop watching the video! Watch the entire video. It’s not just the content people can learn from but the delivery is awesome. I can see why people connect with you and how that can drive and help business.

  26. Alvin J says:

    AJ @ 12TICKS.COM says: Wow Trey! This video really was the TRUTH! I’ve set my homepage to and I’ve already been able to get more done. No more Yahoo/MSN stories to waste an automatic hour. I’m really excited to read some of your other posts you have listed on your blog. I’m at $0 money made online, and trying to make those first dollars.

  27. Trey,
    Thanks for the training. That was some of the best training I have had in a while.
    On of my issues is focus and completion of the tasks. Thanks for the recommendation of TaDA.
    Phenomenal training!

  28. Fitz says:

    Hey Trey, I just wanted to say thanks for the great video! It was very inspiring and I love your stuff.

    Keep up the good work,

  29. Danny Howard says:

    Hey Trey

    Thanks for sharing the video mate, it was awesome to watch.

    I’ve been using Basecamp now in our business for over 14 month, and it’s great for managing your team, and getting things organized in the business.

    I remember John Reese recommending it to me, 37 signals are a fantastic company that brings out some amazing products.

    Thanks again Trey


  30. Steve says:

    Mmhhh you are an iPhone developper but your video actually dosen’t Work on an iPhone!… Grrr!

  31. Samuel Chan says:

    Another great presentation from you Trey. Even though I am NOT a customer of your iPhone system. I attended the sales webinar of yours with Mike a while ago. Remember? I am the one who is able to guess your affiliate network and stuff.

    We definitely have to hook up. As I am I am trying to get my game out fast and building a network. But I’m doing a internet marketing style pre-launch. All the forum marketing and good stuffs like that. Check out my site =P I had that videos posted all over the internet.

    My website name is also derive from a contest I held a while ago and been trying to get people involved. I had huge response! Contact me, trey ;)

    p.s my site is not done yet.

  32. gary says:

    great stuff! thanks for sharing, looking forward to using tada

  33. Jay says:

    Wow Trey!! Way to over deliver on a Blog post. Thank you very much. I’ll be watching this one a couple more times.

  34. Trevor says:

    Hey Trey,
    Great presentation! Like I said when I saw you at Franks’ seminar the year before, you can do one of these seminars yourself. A lot of gold nuggets and over delivery. I’m looking forward to more of your presentations. Thanks and have a good one.

  35. Jeannette G says:

    Great content Trey, you rock!


  36. Christa says:

    I really enjoyed your video. I enjoyed listening the way you speak. Very natural. I do my to-do list every day and when I get to my desk in the morning, I start with the first note. I then have time to concentrate on creation.

  37. Stephanie B. says:

    Since I’m a mom, I can’t really say dude and man like your other posters so I’ll just be myself and say, “Good job, well done.” The simplicity is awesome.

  38. Laina says:

    Very inspiring and thanks for telling about!

  39. Dave Jenyns says:

    Watched this in the background while doing stuff today… was actually pretty impressed. Sent an email to myself with the link to watch it again. This time I’ll take notes :)

    Good vibes.

  40. Good stuff in your video – I am addicted to doing what I do as a Hypnotherapist doing Phone Sessions, love helping others change for the better but the marketing part is what I hate and I don’t have the extra money to outsource at this time, I would love to pay others to do it that.

    So, would love some suggestions to get me to be more successful -

    • treysmith says:

      Quick thoughts:

      Drive traffic to webpage > On webpage collect information (including phone number.. Hook is free consultation) > Talk on phone and setup monthly or weekly sessions (Pitch here is really important) > Grow until you can’t handle business then either hire more people or sell leads.

  41. Brian B says:

    Man Trey your so inspiring. I Cant believe you can do this kinda of magic by outsourcing to programmers. I really strive to make apps just like your doing. Your so cool. Thanks for you valuable content.

  42. BJ says:

    WOW Trey a Bomb Video Packed Full of Nothing but Grow your Business More Better, Thanks for your Knowledge.


  43. Pania says:

    Thanks Trey – I watched the whole video and took extensive notes – Thank you for sharing – great advise. I was a little shocked that you have a Can Not Buy list. Hope I never make that list. lol
    Kindest Regards Pania

  44. Rene says:

    Great Video!! Thanks for posting. :)

  45. Nick J. West says:

    I usually don’t click, what can I say I have been around for awhile. I clicked because you made me laugh. I’m sold, let me know when your ‘link naming’ service goes live!

  46. Elias says:

  47. Todd says:

  48. Deborah says:

    Dude (I just wanted to start with that!),

    I took notes and am going to right now. Making that my home page will be PAINFUL (what will I miss in the “news”?) but it will make a big difference in production and implentation! I have lots of pieces to outsource . . . thanks for making this segment available.


  49. AWESOME Video CUZ Trey…Thanks for sharing man…really grateful for that…

    Yours For Prosperity,

    Anthony Aires

  50. George says:

    Thanks for the reminder, Trey (from a fellow Maconite who also reached escape velocity :-) You’re the universe’s latest of a series of recent messengers I’ve been sent to remind me to STOP COMPLICATING my life and trying to do it all myself. I appreciate your being such an inspiring role model. Prosper
