In this interview, Emily Richett takes us inside Funnel Hacking Live, Clickfunnels' annual business conference, to talk with entrepreneur, coach and author Alex Charfen. He shares why entrepreneurs are different from everyone else and how to scale each level of the "Billionaire Code."

Charfen says, "Entrepreneurs are different from the rest of the world, but a lot of times, we don't admit it. We are driven by momentum, and if you're not out changing the world, then you will not be comfortable."

For startup entrepreneurs who are just beginning a side hustle and trying to replace income around $40,000, Charfen says you have to focus on yourself first. "The only thing you should be focused on is yourself. Getting routines and habits, and forward planning, and understanding how to maximize everything you do. Because you're the only motivator for that business, you're the only thing that's going to grow it."

Then when you are reaching to cross the six-figure mark, Charfen says it's really understanding who you are, and understanding whom you serve. Breaking through the seven-figure business milestone is really about serving that population well, making sure that you have leverage, lead generation, and conversions.
