It's been a while since my last post. Been super busy and getting things organized in my life. One thing I've learned in working for myself is GIVE VALUE! That will return itself 100 fold. Stick to your guns, do what you believe and give value. I've learned that and knowing how to sell yourself on what you can do is key.
I am going to say that networking is key in any business. There will be the "BS" clients that will come your way but that's just given with any type of work. Learn to deal with those and keep the ones you like happy and they will give value back in one way or another.
It is true that if your business does not make it past the 5 year mark then you probably did something wrong to not make it that far. Either not meeting enough people or not wanting to work as many hours as you needed. That is what I'm learning in working for myself. Doesn't matter on what you want. You can WANT to be filthy rich, WANT to have that super nice house, WANT to have that nice car. But if your not wanting to put in the time to make it work then your doing something wrong. Complaining about how much your actually working or your not making enough money doesn't cut it in this world. If your sleeping from 9PM-7AM every single day, watching every single sports game that fits your fancy, every popular show of the season, and complaining about how your life isn't great. THEN CHANGE IT UP! Find another job that you can work between 9PM-7AM, sleep a little less, and make extra cash.
Don't be concerned about what other people think. It's not their life, its yours. If your satisfied with how your life is then this post isn't for you. This post is for those who want to do more in their life or feel that there is something lacking. Go utilize your time and stop complaining about not having enough time, cut the fat out of your life and do something productive.
Felt like making this post on the realization that has come to me in this year. You can make your own money if you 100% put yourself in the business and be consistent. If you feel like or KNOW that your lacking in funds. FIND A JOB TO SUPPLEMENT IT! All you have in life is time. Only you can make use of that. Give people value and you will get value back in one way or another. Make expectations and don't bite more than you can chew. Pay people what they are worth and on time.
Everyone has potential but not everyone is meant for that lifestyle. But if you are the type and KNOW KNOW yourself. Do that hustle and work. Nothing in this life comes easy and cheap. You will either pay for it through time or money or both. Learn from it and learn yourself.
