Bit of Perspective This Morning I've had construction going on for about 8 months at my house finishing up this weekend and one of the laborers approached me after getting my Instagram to keep in touch. We've been talking lockdowns / work etc for the last while and he dumped on me openly about how he wants to change his life / is unhappy with construction etc. He noticed I was "mutual friends" with his amazon coaches and mentioned how he paid for mentorship and their course has completely changed the trajectory of what his future "could be" **** He admitted that he was working up the courage to talk to me as he's essentially heard me speaking on calls for 8 hrs a day for months around internet marketing (listening in on agency calls / team calls / sales calls etc) We talked for about 30 min this
Birthday Thoughts - Flow VS Control Big thank you for the birthday wishes took the weekend to relax/reflect on what undoubtedly has been the "best year of my life" 2018 was a really rough one for me many of the things I thought were "done / complete / certain" ended up falling apart. I ended up going through a 3-year process of self-discovery: Multiple moments of complete rock bottom and some dark moments of "what’s the point" Therapy, Men's Work, Periods of "doing nothing" periods of overcompensation - other stints of mass overindulgence. *** Lockdowns happened and my "travel the world" plans were squashed and was forced home with nowhere to run or fix me externally. Looking back it was the best thing that could have happened to me. *** My #1 biggest learning lesson has been that we are "chasing flow" state (internal creation) and NOT outside stimulus. The

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
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. It has cost me loved ones, often left me feeling alone, tired and unworthy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chasing success ultimately means putting your happiness in the hands of others - always measuring and stressing about "achieving" Fulfillment comes from the inside
