My selfish reason for buying life insurance

2018-07-31T16:52:03+00:00

Not only is my wife way younger than me. #trophywife. I've done so many stupid things to my body when I was younger that there's no way I'm going to make it into my 80's. My wife, on the other hand, hasn't even smoked a cigarette. Not even third-hand smoke! She's definitely going to outlive me. These are the facts and I'm okay with that. In the instance, I die before my kids are old enough to take care of themselves I want to know that financially they don't have to worry.  I take a lot of pride in knowing that I'm [...]

What’s the difference between being a freelancer and a small business owner?

2018-07-30T11:48:15+00:00

I think the biggest difference between the two is that as a Freelancer you are taking much less risk financially than a business owner. As a freelancer, you have the opportunity to build your skill set and get paid for doing that while proving the concept. Meaning… Are you actually good at this? Can you get paid for doing this? Do you enjoy it even when it gets hard? On a continuum this is how I see the two: As a gym owner of 8 years, I started training people out of my sister's garage. I didn’t have a location, I [...]

What are some tips for getting writing done?

2018-07-30T10:55:22+00:00

This question was originally answered by me on Quora. Hi Danny, Thanks for reaching out to me to answer this question for you. Here are things that come to mind: Self-awareness. Everyone has a preference on what time of day s best for them. Many just haven’t stopped to think about it. What time of day do you write the best? We have all a window of a few hours. Block that time of day out everyday. This is a non-negotiable. Consistency. Write no matter what. You become great at that which you do most often. No every day is going to be great. [...]

Do you have a daily routine? If so, what is the most important step?

2018-07-28T11:47:15+00:00

This question was originally answered by me on Quora Hi William, Thanks for reaching out to me. As you have noticed by reading the comments below that each routine is uniquely different from the next. Some wake up early, some meditate, some workout, some read. What I’m careful about when I read comments like these is for people who say you have to do it an exact way. There’s no such thing. We are completely different beings that respond differently to specific routines. What I think is most important is that you develop enough self-awareness in yourself to know what makes [...]

How Do I Get More Verified Google Reviews?

2018-07-25T11:37:45+00:00

My business would not be what it is without Google reviews. You have to start somewhere to get these reviews because unlike other review platforms Google reviews are the most trustworthy and most searched regarding review websites. [actual screenshot of our Google reviews] Here are my recommendations based on what has worked for us: 1. Automate Have an automation set up that directly emails your customer approximately 7 days post-purchase. In the email kindly ask them to review your product. Make the email short and sweet and as personal as possible. This is the perfect window for Google reviews. Too early [...]

What has been your “secret sauce” formula for digital marketing?

2018-07-24T10:48:41+00:00

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I think you know very well there is no “secret sauce” to digital marketing. When I was studying for my MBA I read many research articles on the theory of digital marketing but the conclusion was always the same. No such formula exists. No such formula exists. This is why you have to use “trial and error” because what works today in digital marketing doesn’t work tomorrow. Here is what we know about digital marketing so far... Build trust -because you act in sincerity and honesty doesn’t mean your audience will perceive [...]

What feelings do you get when you realize something significant you learned in school is completely wrong?

2018-07-23T16:47:19+00:00

Hi Richard, Thanks for reaching out to me to answer this question. Mark Twain said it best, “don’t let teaching interfere with your education”. Although the first reaction is to get upset about uncovering the truth I realized that such feelings are pointless. Instead, I become extremely grateful for learning the truth in which I previously thought otherwise. The traditional education system is not created for original thought. The history of Anglo-Saxon education created by the church has been well documented here and tried to suppress free thought. I would argue that it is OUR responsibility NOT to take any information [...]

Can you have a virtual mentor that you’ve never met?

2018-07-21T15:26:40+00:00

I do not believe reading a book about someone or watching their videos on Youtube is enough to call someone a mentor. Mentorship requires real-time feedback. It requires a relationship in which the mentor can be brutally honest with the mentee. This is exactly why I do conference calls with business owners and entrepreneurs. I want to be able to give them honest feedback/criticism on what they can do better. Sometimes people just need someone to vent to, by the end of the conversation they've solved the problem themselves. Haven't you noticed it’s always easier to diagnose someone else's problem although [...]

How do I start being healthy? I’m 14 and I don’t have much control over my life.

2018-07-19T13:53:18+00:00

We should always be asking ourselves: “Is this something that is, or is not, in my control?”- Epictetus (stoic philosopher) At 14 years old I was overweight and lacked confidence. The summer before my freshman year in high school I decided to change all that. I became more aware of the food I was putting in my mouth. I began a formal exercise routine and started weightlifting with the football team. That decision changed my life completely. The answer to your question is stated in your question. It’s understanding and taking accountability for the things in your life you can control. [...]

In what way does the social media affect your life ?

2018-07-18T15:53:11+00:00

One of the things I understood about social media is that its a TOOL. Like any tool, for instance, the hammer, it can be used to drive a nail into a wall (good) or drive someone head into the concrete (bad). Those that decry the evils of social media don’t know how to use the tool properly. Likewise, there are people that let social media run their lives. That’s also a misuse of the tool. Personally This is the hardest to balance. At times I over consume social media where I feel it has a negative impact on my life. Such [...]
