What it was like, What happened, and What it’s like now

The Backstory

Imagine this. You’re 20 years old, you’re working on a project that you’re spending 18 hours a day, you’re young, you’re full of energy, full of vigor, and you’re working nonstop 18 hours a day. Hard-charging, being super productive, and three years of doing that, you find yourself with a chronic illness, and it nearly kills you. All the while, you’re building up debt and not getting things done. This chronic illness takes you from working 18 hours a day to barely struggling to get an hour of work on any given day. What do you do? I think most people would probably give up.

Promoting Your Ideas

When you’re at the $100,000 mark, that’s when you should start asking people if they’d like what you have to offer.

Next Stop: Leveraged Sales

The next stop is definitely sales.

Creating Systems & Processes

Once you’re en route from $300,000 to $1 million, you can no longer say that you’ve got limited funds.

What It’s Like Now

Every week our small but mighty team gathers for a huddle call to check in about our monthly, weekly and daily goals and tasks.

  1. Transfer my profit sharing from the business account to my personal account.

I have become replaceable.

Can I get a “Hell Yeah”?

The less I do, the better the company is performing.

Let me say that again so it really sinks in for you because I know this is sometimes a hard concept to grasp…

Life Lessons Along The Way

Work-Life Balance is something that comes up all the time and I’ve said many times before that I do not believe in work-life balance.
