Does The Paid To Think Method Work? Technology is simplifying every task of essentially every industry. So do you think we'll soon be running agencies or any organization without employees? I believe we still need human input in every task. So I try to make my employees' lives easier and encourage them to invest in themselves and get paid to think. I do this because creativity can never be automated or commoditized. The strategy makes the difference, and technology won't think for you to make things better. That is why we practice getting paid to think and invest in ourselves at my organization. It motivates them and gets better results! So, do you think organizations will start replacing employees with tools in the future? Let me know in the comments below!

Every Entrepreneur Should Hire an Executive Assistant I believe every entrepreneur's first hire should be an executive assistant. I can definitely say my executive assistant has been the most important hire I've made as an entrepreneur. The problem with being a solopreneur is you have to take care of EVERY aspect of the business, be it sales, marketing, or finance. And for a visionary like myself, it was impossible for me to free up bandwidth to focus on growing the business. At first you might think about how you're going quantify having somebody working for you for X amount of hours a day. And questions like filling up their time and tasks will follow. But with time they will start freeing up your time and organize everything so you can focus on the most important task, solving the biggest problems within your company. If you want to scale up your
Building an SEO Agency and Moving to Bali in Winter In life, there’s a point in which we must decide, do we choose to be controlled by life or do we take control of our life. And there’s no place for self-doubts, we must take a bold decision. In a recent podcast with Danny Carlson, who is an Amazon E-com Expert specializing in PPC Management & Listing Optimization, I went into details about how I started my online business, what I focused on in the early days, how I established a successful SEO Agency. I believe the agency business is the most direct way to make $10,000 a month. For this, you don’t need a hundred clients, just a few good clients. For me, relationships have always been a core factor, and the client serving business ticks a lot of boxes for me which I get to do thanks
Halfway to 2020, What now? Have you accomplished what you wanted to? No one expected the year to go the way it did.

Success Without Fulfillment Is A Trap - Entrepreneurship A momento - A keep sake - a gift. What is the point? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anchoring memories and feelings and a reminder of what was and what can be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm not one to wear jewelry, don't have any tattoo's (yet) but a simple piece of copper wire that got folded into a ring has quickly become my largest reminder of who I showed up to be in this world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love, thoughtfulness, connection without the pretentiousness or expectations. True contribution for the sake of making someone happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the last few 6 years i've battled with the difference between success and fulfillment.
