005 - How To Transform Lives

Use this model to build an impactful & fun online business...

From 2013 to 2016 my life was completely changed as I was in ministry school.

I went from being insecure & unsure if I really believed God was good to experiencing and knowing Him in ways I didn't know was possible.

The question is what caused the change?

And can we replicate it for others?

While everyone is on their own journey and has the ability to make their own choices, it's not really possible to truly replicate it, BUT we can stack the deck in our favor.

To do so, we must understand, at the core, what makes transformation possible.

We'll do this by looking at WHAT the ingredients were to my own transformation.


The ministry I went to had made Romans 6,7,&8 their core message.

They presented to me the information that mystically, when Christ died on the cross I died WITH Him, therefore I AM NOW dead to sin.

That was the message.

It intrigued me. At first, it SOUNDED too good to be true, but I wanted it to be true.

This goes into the...


You see, while I had the information (I knew ABOUT the truth), it still didn't fully grip me. There was still unbelief present.

However, after hearing the MESSAGE over and over again for 6 full months, it started to sink in.

This lead to an encounter I had where the truth that I WAS a beloved SON & BRIDE of Christ washed over me.

I felt the HOLY presence of God in such a powerful way, I don't really know how to describe it - other than my whole body wanted to shout with joy all at the same time.

This experience solidified the message.

It went from my head to my heart.


The reason there tends to be so much transformation in a ministry school is because of the atmosphere - it's a bubble of hungry people all going after the same thing.

In this bubble, it's really hard not to grow.


Because the community is constantly reminding you of who you are as is the teaching. And since it's new to you, it changes you.

That's where we get into the great ministry school dilemma.

This is what happens after people leave the "bubble".

You see, the community held up the transformation. The moment leave, they are on their own terms... and if they they didn't learn how to stay in community with the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit for themselves, they tend to fall apart.

I saw this happen multiple times with friends who left, had no community, and came back with depression.

The message & the experiences had stopped repeating.

So, old information & experiences took over. And since that was the thing they were most familiar with, they seemed to LOSE their TRANSFORMATION.

You see, this is why community is the MOST important part of the human experience.

We were meant for each other.

Ok. Justen. Cool. Now, how do I use these ingredients for myself?

Glad you asked.

Let's break them down.


If you want to start transforming lives, hone in on your core message. It should be built around a STRONG belief statement, that you know, when people take hold of it, it'll change their lives.

For example.

A friend of mine has built a ministry around the message that with God there is "No distance. No separation."

Then, every time he teaches, he teaches from this core belief statement.

After hearing him teach it for a while, I started believing it as well.

So, find that core belief that you can teach from.

It doesn't need to be perfect. Just go towards one belief, one goal.

For me, it's the belief that when you show up in goodness with no agenda, you'll make a bigger impact.


After people are intrigued and interested in your core belief, you want to solidify it through experience.

There are a couple ways to do this.

One way is to tell stories of other people who have had experiences. When people, in their imagination, can see themselves experiencing this WITH the story you tell, it's almost as if they've had the experience themselves.

This is why a good case study & testimony is so important.

Tell the stories.

But, EVEN better, and this is another way to do this, set up the environment for people to have an experience.

This is why challenges and workshops are such a big deal.

They can provide an accelerated environment for people to have an experience.

But, there's an even better way to do it.

This is where you "gamify" the experience for people. You identify ONE step people can take toward their goals, and you do everything you can to HELP them take that step.

For example, if you help people lose weight, instead of giving everything at once (and overwhelming people so they DON'T take action), you could simply help them take more steps every day.

This is a habit that will help them burn calories, and feel better - leading them toward their goal.

And, if you get really good at helping them take more steps, you've just proven to them that you can help them.

This makes it WAY easier to sell them on the next thing.


I'm convinced that the BEST model to help people live transformed is through a good community.

Plus, a good community based model can provide recurring revenue for you.

There are three basic ways you can do this.

1. You can provide a monthly membership.

This is best set up if you can have 12 focuses over a period of a year where you help people take specific actions in each month.

For example, if you have a fitness program, every month you could release new workouts focused on specific parts of their bodies and rotate through them.

2. You can provide a cohort-based program with continued community.

This is where, in a specific time period, you help people establish a bigger, very clear win for their lives, then you have monthly (or yearly) community available for them to continue to get support and connection.

An example would be helping people lose 20lb. in 8 weeks.

Then, your continued community will help them sustain and improve their result.

3. You can provide a yearly mastermind.

This is where people pay per year to be part of it. It has training for 6-12 weeks sharing a specific model of doing things, with weekly implementation & community calls.

People can go through the training on their own as some will take longer than others, but they'll continue to get the support they need to succeed.

These can be more high ticket focused toward specific people.

The Conclusion

By focusing on the three ingredients of transformation, you can build a business that creates a TON of impact that results in a lot of income.

Start with your core belief and get good at sharing it.

Then, develop a clear journey for people to EXPERIENCE a result.

And, finally, build a community-based offer to help people sustain and improve their results.
