Here is what I learned:

  • Don’t limit yourself when helping others. When you limit the way you help someone else, you also limit the way you receive blessings. Karma in business is real.
  • Money is secondary to freedom. No amount of money in the world is worth losing your freedom over. Life is too short to spend your time doing something you hate to do just because it pays well. If your circumstances allow, explore how to make money in your passion. Miserable rich people do exist.
  • You are who you hang around. Make sure you keep positive influences in your life and in your inner circle. These individuals will force you to step your game up, and help you create new opportunities.
  • Entrepreneurship is a spiritual path. Entrepreneurs are always confronted with uncertainty. To withstand that kind of challenge on an everyday basis requires a level of tenacity and a strong spirit.
  • Make 3 lists every morning. A desire list, gratitude list, and a brag list. The desire lists contains all the things you want in life. The gratitude list is you giving thanks for everything you have currently. The brag list is you patting yourself on the back for all the great things you have accomplished.

Here is what I learned:

  • Do things that fulfill you. The essence of getting paid to be yourself is doing things you actually enjoy and not settling.
  • The brand is the “Why?” It’s the core of who you are. Knowing your “why” helps you produce the best content and even recognize your own unique talent.
  • Identify your values. Take inventory on what you care about. Never underestimate the power of you own personal perspective. Sure you can read a ton of books, but what’s YOUR truth? Don’t assume people won’t care to hear what you have to say.
  • How to discover your talent. Look at the things you do naturally that has ambien no prescription.
  • You get paid for your value, not your time. The number of years you put into a project doesn’t matter as much as the impact you create with it. When creating, keep in mind the amount of value you are providing to people. It always pays for itself directly, and indirectly. You can read more about this in my book.
  • Don’t suffer from the fear of your own greatness. Live up to the moment. The largest thing in the way of you building a business around you, is you.
