How to Be Successful in Life – You Need a System in 4 Steps

How to Be Successful in Life - You Need a System in 4 Steps

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Today I have a question for you. What is your process for success? I touched on it earlier on my Renegade Facebook page. Some real important lessons have become very clear to me this year. It is not how much your course costs, it’s not even if your information is good that determines success. It doesn’t matter.

It is not the price points or the tools. It is your system that matters.

For years, it has been driving me crazy. I would have someone who would take one of my courses, read a book and do really well. Then, I would have other people who would struggle or drop out.

I’ve had some really smart people not be able to do my courses. I’ve had other self-professed people who said they weren’t that smart who have completed my courses and gotten benefit from them. It left me wondering, “What the hell?”

I started to inquire. I talked to a lot of people on the phone and asked them some crazy questions. I’ve nailed the answer down to, “What kind of system do you personally have for success?” This answer to this question goes back to whether you know how to study.

It’s not about money. It’s not about being connected. It’s none of those things. If you have a process for success, you can get connected.

Have you ever thought about how you do what you do? Frequently, when I am in Facebook groups, I am the contrarian. I ask people questions. “Why do you do X? Why do you do Z?” As I ask these questions it becomes clear that these people are doing something different.

It’s really interesting. Some of the things I’ve done recently are doing amazingly well. But these are folks I am choosing. It’s not going to work for everyone. That’s just a dream I have to let go.

Unless you are going to make some fundamental changes in who you are and how you do things, you will still fail. You can have the best teacher, money, information and connections; and you can still fail.

It’s amazing. I think it is the process that explains how someone like Arthur Blank goes from virtually nothing to become a billionaire. Compared to Blank, Trump started way ahead born into a wealthy family and has not had the same impact as Arthur Blank. Arthur Blank is richer, and in my opinion is a better human being.

The thing is that process matters. Amazon was created out of nothing. People laughed at the man. Folks mocked him.

There are a lot of people who want to quit their jobs because they hate their jobs. But, they have no pathway, no process and no success. I have talked more people out of quitting their jobs than I can count.

I know what it’s like to start a company. I know what it’s like to start several companies. I know what it’s like to work your ass off and not make any money for months. I haven’t done that for years. But I remember.

I know that if you launch something, you are going to have to put forth a lot of effort, energy and enthusiasm. The average person who does not have a system for success is just going to say, “Fuck it. I’m not doing that. I’m going to get a job. Then I’m going to be miserable and complain about it on Facebook.”

So, here’s the system. Number 1 – You’ve got to be fundamentally honest with who the fuck you are. That’s hard because you could build a successful company that is 100% against who you are as a person. That will destroy your soul. That happens a lot. People may believe that if the money is there, it is worth doing. I say, no it’s not.

When I started this YouTube channel and this writing and internet marketing career, my goal was to earn $50K per year. I had no grand expectations or illusions about what success was. I studied the market. I knew it was hard making a living as a writer. I just went for it.

You might be a person who wants to make handcrafted earrings. They make your heart leap for joy. You’re really good at it. The marketplace may say for you that this pursuit is worth $80K a year. But, you are happy. The marketplace may say that your earrings are worth $40K per year. But you are happy, and it is worth it.

Then you go ahead and start selling some stuff that you don’t believe in, but the marketplace says we like it and we are going to pay you $2 million a year. I don’t think the money is worth it. I’ve never been like that. I don’t care who you are, you need money. But, how much and at what cost?

I’ve never wanted to be a billionaire. That’s never been my thing. But, I have always wanted to be wealthy. Wealthy is when your assets work for you when you aren’t working. That is something I’ve always wanted. You don’t have to be a millionaire to have that kind of lifestyle.

Here’s a few more tips on how to create a system of success. The second thing you have to understand is who you really are, without worrying about who people want you to be. The world is really strange. If you are authentic and push forward with that in mind, a lot of people who hate your ass will start to love you. They will start to love you and they will support you. Howard Stern is proof of that idea. On minute, everybody hated him. Then, he’s on a TV show and everybody got used to him. Now many people love him.

Be brutally honest about who you are and what you want to do. That satisfaction sticks with you. You sleep with it. You wake up with it. That’s really your power source.

The third thing you need is to become comfortable with failure. That’s part of the system. There will be a time you will have an idea, thinking it’s going to kill. Then you put it out there in the marketplace. The marketplace says, “No, I don’t like it.” You will have more ideas that you have to euthanize than will make it. That’s just reality. You have to look at failure as feedback that you need to try something else.

The fourth thing you must learn is to appreciate small things. One of the mindsets that stops people is the “Homerun Mentality.” There are people that have businesses doing $60K, $100K, $150K and they are terribly unhappy because it is not a million-dollar business yet. People often quit too early because the results don’t come fast enough.

I appreciated all the people in 2009 who bought my first book. It was only about $560. I was so grateful. Other folks would have given up.

Some people have no gratitude for anything. They’re so miserable and they want you to be miserable too.

All you need is a system for success to win. Follow the four steps above and you will find success in your life.

Facebook Marketing Does Not Get You 50K – $100K a Month Clients

Facebook Marketing Does Not Get You 50K - $100K a Month Clients

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

I was looking at a very interesting comment when I decided to do this video. The comment asked, “Why not just target everybody on Facebook?” Well, I’m going to give you a $40K reason why you shouldn’t do that.

I got two clients that I acquired recently and neither one of the clients is on Facebook. Let that sink in for a minute. There are tons and tons of people on Facebook. You know who is making the most money on Facebook? GM. Revlon. It’s big brands. That’s who is making the most money on Facebook. The reason the big companies are making the most money on Facebook is because they have huge infrastructures that allow them to spend $200K a day and profit from it.

Let’s talk about Facebook targeting since that was part of the comment. This was the type of feedback I got when I put up my video, No eBay, No Amazon. People kept questioning why you should build your own ecommerce site when eBay and Amazon have all the traffic. That was back in 2014.

HAHA. Motherfucking HAHA. Since then, not a dozen, but 1000s of sellers on Amazon have been financially hurt because of changes that I published were coming. The same thing is going to happen to Facebook. It’s already happening with Facebook.

Talk to anybody who is making a lot of money on Facebook. They will tell you about the changes.

My experience is that my high-ticket clients come from YouTube. One client is very much about privacy, which means no Facebook and No Twitter. They’re just grinding and running their business.

The other client has a Facebook page. He says he’s never on it. He explained, “My wife made it for me. I don’t believe in that bullshit.”

There are many executives and high-income people who are not on Facebook. Why aren’t they on Facebook? Let me give you a scenario.

If you have the money to really “live that life,” why would you be on Facebook posting pictures to fake that life versus “living that life.” If your name is Al and you run a company that does $10 million a year, netting you about $1.2 million after taxes, you aren’t on Facebook dicking around, arguing with people. Instead, you are in your beach house or your hunting lodge. You’re in Italy with your family or you’re on some excursion. You simply don’t have time to screw around on Facebook because you are too busy running your business and living your life.

Facebook can be great. But, if you only know how to market on Facebook, you’re going to be in trouble at some point. Facebook is not typically business stuff, except for a few of the groups. I’ve done both YouTube and Facebook.

Right now, YouTube is the biggest media thing online. I’ve made a lot of money on Facebook, but I’ve always made more money on YouTube. I’ve always made long money on YouTube. When you put up a video that does well and you’ve got it properly optimized, you can make money even when YouTube changes stuff.

With Facebook, you have to consider how long does that post live? How long does that sucker last? You’ve got to always keep posting.

Let’s talk about posting. Let’s talk about marketing. I’m going to give you an example. I would not want to do this, but if I had to go take a job, this is what I would do. Let’s say it is a carpet cleaning sales job.

I would be a motherfucker on the phone. I would get a lot of business. I would do two things. I would work on the Internet stuff. I would also cold call because the cold calling is faster.

I would figure out whatever they do in the carpet cleaning business to get traffic, and then do it times twenty. Next, I would build a landing page to track my business and hire a team that would get leads.

If all you’re doing is Facebook stuff, a competitor with some seasoning is going to eat your lunch. While you are trying and learning, they’re going to kick your ass. In this scenario, they have already learned it and they are doing it times 20.

There’s this thing called NextDoor.com. Just for kicks, I’ll go look for this person on ,Facebook and notice there is no activity. There may be a few pictures, but that’s it. You see it over and over again. I have more confidence in NextDoor.com because people are using their real names and addresses.

In the beginning, I tried to market on Facebook. I was unsuccessful because I didn’t know what I was doing. Now that I am busy building the new companies, I don’t have much time to spend on Facebook. Being on Facebook is just not a good use of my time.

I’ll give you an example of a big company and how they market. HubSpot sells products to salespeople and companies. They get most of their high-end clients from Meetups, not from the internet. There is this fallacy that everything can be done on the internet.

I think at some point that’s going to be true. But, we’re not there yet. I think you can make a lot of money selling low-end, low-risk, low-trust physical products. When it pertains to high-end consulting, you’re going to have to market differently. You’re going to have to have a better pedigree. You’re going to have to hop on a plane. That’s just the reality of it.

Once again, Facebook marketing is very powerful depending on the game you’re playing. If you are a freelancer and you’re always struggling with the problem of having either a lot of work or no work, you have a sales process problem. The problem is you don’t have a sales process. You don’t have a marketing process or a cold calling process. That’s why it is up and down.

I know that a lot of people are struggling. I know that every time Facebook does an algorithm change, it fucks up a lot of people’s money. It’s the same thing with Google, AdWords and YouTube.

I got hit hard on my YouTube channel because of so many changes. You know I use profanity quite a bit. I also send a lot of traffic off the platform. It took me six months to figure out a way for me to do what I want. I’m going to give YouTube what it wants some of the time.

You should learn how to do Facebook marketing. Take a course. Also, learn how to do YouTube marketing. Learn how to do Instagram marketing. You need to have at least two to three things you can do.

I can do Google AdWords. I can do YouTube marketing. I can do cold calling. You need to have two to three really strong skill sets, and not just because there are people on YouTube who have literally lost 75% to 95% of their income overnight. It’s going to take a minimum of three months to a year to learn a new marketing skill.

Free Money-Making Training – Why It Does Not Work and How to Fix It

Free Money-Making Training – Why It Does Not Work and How to Fix It

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Are you struggling to find free information that will help you start a business and make some money? If you are; watch this video all the way to the end, and I am going to hook you up.

Today, we’re going to talk about free information that works and why most information doesn’t.

There are so many ways to make money online. Everyone is looking for that one way – the quickest way, the easiest way, the laptop lifestyle way. They want the way you go out there and make some money and not do anything.

___________

If you find value with this video, and you should, then you can get 10 books or business courses for $200.

There’s a lot more to that offer. I’m actually going to give you a coupon for $250 that essentially will make those courses free. I’ll talk more on how those courses will be free later in the video.

___________

Why do most people struggle with making money online using free information?

The answer is going to surprise you. It’s not because the people giving you the information are holding back. They’re not holding back. A lot of people are giving you great information.

Part of the problem relates to an infrastructure issue. Someone can give you tools and step by step instructions on how to make money for free, but you still struggle because you have jumped ahead  several steps without having a good foundation for growth.

I’m going to explain this idea to you by comparing it to lifting weights. You can’t bench 500 pounds before you bench 225 pounds. You can’t squat 600 pounds before you squat 300 pounds.

Yet, many people think they can come online and listen to someone put out the tools and they expect to be able to duplicate the success of that person without going through the basic training that person completed and experienced.

I’ll give you an example. I listened to this podcast that had information about how to create products and sell them before you make them. I had to listen to that podcast 10 times. I was missing some things. There were certain things I did not have a foundation for that would have made it easy for me to understand.

This is why I struggled. It wasn’t the information; it was me.

If you are trying to use free information without doing the basic work and establishing a foundation for growth, you will struggle.

There are several YouTube channels. There are several podcasts. There are several blogs and Facebook pages all over the place with free information that will help you. But, without the right foundation, that free information is not really going to help you.

Another reason you struggle with free information is because, nothing in life is free.

There’s opportunity costs. There are some things you are going to have to do. There are things you are going to have to execute. The costs are time, energy and money; or a combo of all three.

I see people all the time who are looking for things that are free. The reason many people are always looking for free information and help is because of their ego. Many people think they are smarter than they really are and they can figure it all out without paying for help.

When those people call something a scam, they believe it’s a scam because they said it was scam. They ignore the fact that they didn’t do the right things and that they weren’t prepared. They also never blame the fact that they didn’t have the resources or foundation for success before using that information.

It’s very troublesome, because you hear stories like the one about a woman who made $1.2 million in four years. I can’t remember her name. She had been working on her business for three years. The husband was working and supporting the family so she could devote all of her time to her business. People say she made a million dollars overnight, ignoring the fact that she worked hard for four years, full-time. It was a four-year journey. It was still very fast.

She did the foundation work. She used to get a lot of shit in the group because she did her own work. It didn’t jive with a lot of the stuff other people were saying.

Now this brings me to the third reason people struggle with free information. They have no work ethic. If you have a good work ethic and you have a reasonable intelligence level, then you can figure out anything.

Now, what is figuring out anything. Let’s go back to that example. The podcast I listened to was an hour and 30 minutes long. I listened to it 10 times. That’s 15 hours of listening, plus the research time. I probably had 40 hours plus in that process. That’s how long it took me to figure it out. Many people would read it once and then get frustrated. Then they’d call it a scam.

The lack of work ethic is killing people. It’s killing hopes and dreams.

Reason number four is need. This relates closely to infrastructure. If you need free stuff because you don’t have anything and you are Broke Dick Danny or Penniless Priscilla, then you have other issues. One is not so much how much money you earn, but it’s a lack of financial discipline.

You have not done the things you need to do to be successful at a basic level or at your foundation. Educate yourself. Demonstrate work ethic and discipline.

While these things are supposedly free, they’re not. It costs a lot of time, effort, sweat, blood and tears. They are very expensive, but they’re worth the price.

If you want to fully maximize free information, you have to step up your personal development game.

I hear people say, “The video is too long. I don’t have time for that.” I hear this all the time.

If you are broke. If you are living with mom and dad or with a chick or dude that you really don’t want to live with because of money, then what the fuck do you have time for?

You are wasting your life. You are in a hurry to build something for nothing. If you don’t build yourself, I don’t care how good the information is, you won’t succeed.

If you are in the same place today that you were in five years ago and that’s not your desire, you have to ask yourself why. You have Google University. You have YouTube and Facebook Universities.

The Biggest Seller on Amazon/ Setting Up an Office/ Growing a Business Rant

The Biggest Seller on Amazon_ Setting Up an Office_ Growing a Business Rant

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

If you are afraid of hardship. If you are afraid of things not being certain, then probably being a business owner is not for you. It’s something that is going to drive you crazy. You are going to stay up all night, freaking out. You are going to be worried about life in general. Certain things are going to be beyond you.

That is one of the reasons that “Hustler’s Porn” is so pervasive. The hook or gimmick used in “Hustler’s Porn” is leading people into believing that you don’t really have to work that hard or worry about anything. Another popular part of this line of thinking is the promise of great rewards and great results for little to no effort.

It doesn’t work like that. It just doesn’t. But you hear it over and over again.

In Personal Development for Hustlers on the other channel, I will get into how you can prepare your mind for the truth and void “Hustler’s Porn.” This is the reason I tell you what I’ve been through. I tell you about the five businesses that failed.

Everybody that I know who has made serious money has had serious setbacks. We’ll use people that everybody knows to drive that point home. Bill Gates got sued by the federal government. Zuckerberg has been sued and is being sued now. Steve Jobs was fired from his own company and then died from cancer.

If you want to be successful, I have two pieces of advice for you. Learn how to solve problems. Learn how to keep your mind when shit goes sideways.

Bad things will happen. Sometimes when something bad happens, that is an opportunity for something great to happen.

Let’s talk about what happened to me years ago with eBay. I woke up and 2000 listings were gone and my money was locked up in PayPal. It forced me to push Craigslist really hard. It forced me to perform at a higher level.

The more that you push yourself, the more that you fail. The more fuckups you have, the more money you will make if you can manage to keep your sanity during the fuckups.

That’s the tricky part. That’s the part that’s a little daunting because then you have to own some bullshit. You have to look at yourself and admit that you’ve fucked up.

I remember years ago in a break room when I worked at Northside Hospital. It was me and four females in the break room. I said I made a mistake and this one woman said, “Let me get this straight, you’re a man and you said you made a mistake?”

And I was like, “You know, everybody makes mistakes.”

She said, “I’ve never heard a man say that.”

If you can admit your mistakes and press forward, your success is almost assured.

Today, I am going out and I’m getting computers for the office. Here’s something that is really a big part of scaling. It’s about getting the infrastructure, because what I am doing is building this business to grow. Everything that I do includes a component for future growth.

If you don’t do that when you are building your business, you are going to trap it at a certain level. The business will stop there and stay there regardless of how hard you work.

When you build a business, you’ve got to look five years ahead which can be very hard if you’ve never done any of this before.

If you are Broke Dick Danny and you move up to Classy Carl with a few shillings in your pocket from doing eBay and Amazon netting $8K or so every month after expenses, you still don’t have a business compared to someone that went into business with $2 or $3 million.

Google Pharmapacks. They’re the biggest seller on Amazon. Now, here’s the backstory. The guy who started Pharmapacks was rich already. He was a pharmacist with one pharmacy and he was opening up another one. We’re looking at millions of dollars in sales before he got anywhere near Amazon.

You can’t compare yourself to this guy if you’re Broke Dick Danny or Classy Carl. He was already rich before he even got started.

You are better off starting a small ecommerce business in an area that a lot of people are not in than trying to duke it out with this person. Many people will try to fight with this person instead of doing their own thing.

I have a client and we’re building out an ecommerce business. We’re putting a lot of time and effort into the company. I’m going to document the process. For people trying to get started, these videos will help you.

I rented another office. Here’s the thing about growth. We had planned on sharing the office, but due to the fact we’re growing very fast I already see that in a matter of weeks, we’re going to be tapped out with client’s people. So, I am getting my own office for Mack Daddy Media. You’ll get to see both companies grow from the outside.

Just to be real clear, I’ll probably show you screenshots with certain things blacked out. If you own a website and you come on YouTube trying to help people by showing your website, it will fuck up the metrics.

What I mean by that is that people come into your websites to check it out, right? That’s in the video. That’s going to skew your Google Analytics because you have a bunch of “Looky Loos” coming to see what you have versus real customers coming to purchase.

Now that’s something a lot of people don’t talk about, the real money. I’m not going to do screen shots of my bank account. That’s a good way for someone to rob you or steal your identity.

But, I’m going to show you the real stuff about building a business, how to make this really happen.

Escape the Middle Class and Make America Great

Escape the Middle Class and Make America Great

Tonight, we’re going to talk about something very deep, escaping the middle class. That is going to be a problem for many people.

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

The middle class or what is supposedly the middle class pays the largest amount of taxes. The reality is you pay many taxes that you don’t consider taxes. The lottery is a voluntary tax. Where does the money go? It goes to the government.

Traffic tickets are another involuntary tax you pay when you get pulled over. Forty-nine to fifty percent of all of your dollars are going somewhere. It’s like all of your dollars are torn in half.

The only way you can escape the lower or middle class is you’ve got to earn more money. Where you need to be is at $200K as a couple and at $125K as an individual. There aren’t a lot of jobs paying that.

Fifty-one percent of America doesn’t make $30K a year, seriously. Thirty-eight percent of Americans make less than $20K a year. Sixty-two percent of all Americans make less than $40K. Seventy one percent of all Americans make less than $50K.

If you fall in these ranges, you’re not even good. What did I just tell you? Half of every dollar that you get goes to some kind of tax. So, it’s not really good.

When you are caught up in inertia – you have to have significant velocity to push you out of that. Many, many years ago, this was my conundrum. I was sitting there in my room in the boarding house and I was thinking, how the hell do I get out of here.

My issues were not racism. My pressing issues were all 100% economic. Economics dictated where I lived. Economics dictated how I lived. At that point, I wasn’t even making $20K a year.

If you make more income and move up in class, you are going to insulate yourself from a lot of bullshit. Not from all bullshit. No.

Typically, as someone from the middle class, everything you do is predicated on money. Decisions about the trips you take and what food you eat are decided by money. This is huge.

Eating healthy and eating well is not cheap. I’m not going to say it is expensive because the food you eat dictates your health. That’s reality.

For this discussion, we’ll define the middle class as those people earning from $20K to $50K. In reality, for practical purposes, $20K to $50K is poverty level. Let’s say you’re at the top of that group earning $50K. If you have a good tax situation, you pay minimally $10K in taxes. That leaves you with $40K or $3333 per month. Let’s say you have a low mortgage or rent payment of $850 per month. That brings you down to $2400 now. This is where the shit gets dicey.

You have a new car with a $350 payment. Then you spend $250 for gas and $112 for insurance. Now we’re down to $1900 per month. That’s for one person and doesn’t include anyone else. Let’s go ahead and subtract out another $800 a month for utilities and food. That brings you to $971. We’ll assume that’s your money to blow. Now, let’s say your transmission blows. Now you are in debt.

Even at this higher level of this income range, all it takes is one thing to happen and BAM, you’re out of it. That’s why you’ve got to get out of these income ranges.

All the government numbers are skewed. They talk about household income which might be two or three wage earners.

I have been through each of these stages from no money to $20K to $50K to $70K to $100K to $150K.

I’m going to tell you what happened with that $150K. That’s when I got my first big check. I was working for the office furniture company. I did a big deal and I got to the office. There’s this envelope with my name on it. I pulled this check out for $64K. It was the most money I’d ever had at one time in my fucking life.

I went out and I bought a new BMW. I got fucking generous and was leaving $20 tips.

When I finally got to the income level of $150K, I could do what I wanted, how I wanted and was still paying all my bills and still saving money. Once you’re making $150K to $200K, you’ve got a cushion.

Like, if you’re at $200K and your car breaks down, you can buy a new car with cash in a matter of months, or you can finance it at some ridiculous rate and pay it off in four or five months.

When you are in this $20 to $50K range, when the car breaks down; it’s a drama. When someone gets sick, it’s a drama.

When my partner died, I didn’t work for six fucking months. I didn’t do shit for six months.

I’m going to talk about why the middle class doesn’t exist. The system is rigged. If you are at an income level that doesn’t allow you to live how you want all of the time and you get sick and can’t work for a few months, you go literally from classy to ashy and you are suddenly poor.

Let’s say you make $80K a year. You have great credit, but you have no recurring income. You have no passive income. You have no property. You have no investments. You’re poor.

I know it sounds crazy. But once again, I’m giving you what I’ve gone though. I’m teaching you what I have learned. You want to get to a point where you have way more money than you need.

If you are under $80K, you are very vulnerable. Even if you have really good savings habits. Let’s say you save $25K per year for five years and you now have $125K in savings in the bank, liquid.

Then something happens and you can’t work for a year. Let’s go back to the Great Recession. We saw people that had $200K or $300K in their 401K – all gone. I’m talking about this to illustrate a point. Even when you have as much as $125K in the bank, it can go really quickly if something goes wrong.

Typically, if you are young and healthy and you don’t have a lot of debt, you are fine. As you get older, that shit’s going to change.

If you can get your earnings to $125K to $200K, you can live very well. You can invest 50% of your income. If you are between $20K to $50K, everything is a struggle. You have to save up for vacations or go in debt. You have to think about everything you want to do. That doesn’t leave a lot of bandwidth for starting a business or escaping the hell hole.

When you change class, your circle of friends changes. When that happens, your opportunities increase.

If everybody you know is broke, where are the opportunities?

In the $20K to $50K range, all I thought about was, please don’t let shit go wrong. That was the main thought in my mind. When all you think about is surviving, that’s all you are going to do.

Now I think about how can I make more money.

It’s going to take a plan. It’s going to take some money. You have to change your environment to move up.

You have to escape the $20K to $50K income range. The middle class doesn’t exist. You are either a “have” or “have not.”

How to Make Money – The Fastest Path to Making Money – Focus on What You Want

How to Make Money – The Fastest Path to Making Money – Focus on What You Want

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Where is your fight when it comes to talking about your success versus what other people are doing? Where is it? I mean seriously, where is it?

You’ve got to focus on your success like you focus on other topics that don’t put money in your pocket, don’t put food in your mouth, and don’t really help your life overall.

I was talking with a friend this weekend. He said the reason some people jump on this stuff is because there are no consequences. There is no effort required. Nothing has to happen. It’s easy. It doesn’t create problems. It doesn’t create a situation. There’s no skin in the game.

Now, let’s go back and talk about how to be successful with your business, with your life. You have to focus on the things you want.

People say they want to be successful. Okay, so what are you doing about it? Are you reading books? Are you taking courses, educating yourself, starting businesses? Are you doing these things that would indicate that you truly want to be successful? If the answer is, “No,” then you are lying to yourself.

I started mapping out Hustler’s Kung Fu six months ago. I was focused putting it all together and wasn’t doing much else. I was testing it.

Let’s talk about this. When you have people here on YouTube who don’t have a business, who have never made any money at all and who refuse to give you any credentials, you can’t listen to those folks. You can’t listen to broke folks on how to make money. You can’t listen to non-business owners on how to start a business. It’s like taking marriage advice from someone who’s never been married.

There is a lack of focus on success. One of the things I do is every time I send out an email, I write an income goal on my daily sheets. A lot of days, I don’t hit it. I always make more money when I set a goal. I always make more money when I focus on process. I always make more money when I focus on making money.

That sounds very simple. If you weighed in on what you are doing with your business and the things that you have going on, how many hours are you focused on making money? How much of your time is focused on your health and living a good life? How many hours are you just kind of existing?

One of the problems I have with some overly religious people is how they talk about destiny or fate. I don’t believe in Karma. I think Karma is a way people can feel better about getting fucked over and not doing anything.

When you reject a lot of these notions, you have to fill that space with something else.

With the internet, you can start a business today. This time next year, it could be supporting you, if not sooner. That’s real. But, it’s not real if you don’t focus on it.

When the fuckery started getting really, really bad a few years ago from haters on YouTube, I had to make a choice. You can either participate in it or you can work your ass off and work on your stuff.

Sometimes fuckery is seductive, and you have to ignore it. I am so glad I did because I have seen how people deteriorate. This is what happens if you have an internet business and YouTube channel and you’re doing some stuff. If you’re frequently calling people out, you are hurting your own wallet. You are fucking up your cash flow.

This is the thing – when you do a video, there’s the process of doing it and the pre-process of thinking about it. Some of the videos I do, I think about for weeks. So, that’s hours and hours of contemplation and pondering.

So, if you put up a hate video – you may have 10 hours invested in that. Those ten hours could have gone towards making money. If you do this type of thing four times a month, that’s 30 or 40 hours invested in fuckery. You can’t win by investing that much time in fuckery.

I’ve noticed that people that create the most trouble on Facebook and YouTube are frequently broke as fuck. Frequently, they’re not happy people. Haters are people who don’t focus on success, but will spend more time and energy coming after you than working on their own success. It’s totally, totally crazy. I see it over and over again.

This is something I want you to do. I want you to sit down and do an audit of your hours. How many hours a day do you focus on success? How many hours a day do you focus on other things? I don’t mean just fuckery, but other things you have to do. Where does your energy go? What is your focus?

When I did a critical error in 2012, I shifted my focus. It was the worst year I ever had here on YouTube. I was like, “Damn, what the hell happened?” It was crazy. I made a very big mistake. I changed my focus.

What I’ve done lately is I’ve come back to the way I started. I’ve come back to the way I’ve been doing things for a long time. They work because they’re timeless.

Continue to audit yourself. When you audit, and monitor your activity, you’ll see trends.

If you are putting 50% or your time into being successful, you’ll be successful. I can’t say when, but you will.

Now, this is some info about my consulting business. People are going to ask. Opening up the door is $5K, and it is a 90-Day process. There’s a lot of conversation between you and me. For those of you interested in a higher level of training or if you want me to hold your hand, this is how the process works.

You must fill out a survey and an application. Then once you do that, I’ll get back to you. I’m going to be honest with you, if I don’t think I can help your business; I’m not going to take your money.

So, what does the 90-Day Process include?

First, I’m going to ask you a lot of questions and we’re going to work on what makes you tick.

My job is to give you what you need, not what you want.

So, if you want to, I’ll put up a link below the survey.

Below every video are some goodies for you.

What Courses Should I Take to Make Money Fast – Cold Calling

What Courses Should I Take to Make Money Fast – Cold Calling

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Here’s something you don’t ever hear anybody talk about on YouTube, and it’s because they don’t do it.

When you have a good sales process, you can have someone tell you “No” in 2017 and then say “Yes” in 2019 if you have a good sales process in place.

Cold calling is one of the fastest ways to put money in your pocket. Depending on your business and your product, you could go out today and cold call and go home with a few hundred or a few thousand dollars in your pocket.

I’ll start at the beginning. I have my own companies, and I act as a part-time CEO for a few other companies. I’ve been extremely busy. So, what’s happening here is that the Hustler’s Kung Fu blog is going to be a very rich resource for a lot of things.

The question I get all the time is, “What course should I take?” I really can’t tell someone without sitting down and talking to them.

What is happening right now at the Hustler’s kung Fu blog is there will be a blurb about what the course will do for you. I have a bunch of courses available on Gumroad. With the blog, I can take each course or book and put it on a separate page and you can just go ahead and read it. The page will say, this is for someone trying to do this.

On Hustler’s Kung Fu, there’s going to be beginner type information. The information will be about how to start a business and how to hustle. The Uber book will be there. The Craigslist stuff will be there.

The prices will be between $5 and $50. It will be really affordable for most people.

If you buy a book and really do the work, you will make way more than the cost of that book. Way more. You can do it in a day.

One of the things I’ve found to be a big challenge with people is there are so many folks who just don’t want to work. They are looking for some push button success method. It just doesn’t exist. If something like that does exist, you are going to have to have stacks of money to buy it.

That’s why companies buy established businesses. It’s cheaper to buy that readymade situation than to create it in some cases. That’s why Facebook bought Instagram.

For those of you who want more advanced stuff, that stuff will be coming for B School for Hustlers. If you don’t already have a business, you don’t want to sign up for that stuff. In B School for Hustlers, there’s no beginners’ stuff.

For everyone who signed up for the early version of B School for Hustlers, you are going to be emailed with your login information. It’s going to happen in the next few weeks. B School is being moved from Thinkific to Teachable.

The Paid Traffic course alone will be worth 20 times the money paid.

With Hustlers Kung Fu, there’s going to be more interviews. There’s going to be very different subject matter. I am pushing for two to four videos each week.

If you want to be alerted to new videos on B School for Hustlers, get on my email list below.

Mack Daddy Media is going to be about video marketing stuff. It will cover video marketing, content creation and course creation.

For guys who like the mental game, Personal Development for Hustlers is something you should check out. I’m going to go hard on that channel. There’s going to be some stuff you’ve never heard me say.

The creation of eBooks and audio books is going to be on the Rich Self Published Author channel.

Let me talk about the cold calling course. If you have a business already, you want this course. Here’s a little secret that a lot of people won’t tell you about online marketing. If you are a well-known company, then marketing online is easy. If no one knows who you are, then cold calling will get you more business, faster and cheaper than online marketing. There’s a point when you are scaling up when online marketing will kick cold calling in the ass.

If you are really struggling to get business, cold calling is the way to go.

Let me just flesh out what cold calling is. Anytime you introduce your business or yourself to someone you don’t know, it’s cold calling.

Referrals are when someone else introduces you or lets you use their name when you introduce yourself.

If you use content marketing out there and someone finds you on a website or a place like HustlersKungFu.com, that is inbound marketing.

You’ve got to know these terms. You’ve got to invest in the sales process.

Now, marketing is saying… “Hey. We exist and we do this.”

Sales is… “Hey, we exist. We’ve observed your business and we have a solution to your problem. Let’s sit down and talk about it. If you like what we have to say, then let’s close the deal.”

Sales is a process. Marketing is pushing your company out into the world. Both are very important. Marketing and sales are not the same thing. They’re not.

There are huge marketing departments that work on finding channels to advertise and buying media. There are so many different aspects to marketing. Sales is closing the deal and getting the money.

Sometimes your marketing can be so good that a customer finds your site through inbound marketing efforts and then clicks and buys. That’s great sales. It’s not cheap, but it’s a low-cost way to get customers.

That’s the stuff we’re going to talk about in Cold Calling.

You can’t go through the sales process unless you have a customer in front of you. How do you get a customer in front of you? You’ve got to go out and find a customer in the marketplace. We’re going to talk about all that. We’re going to cover picking up the phone, writing emails and how to use CRM or Customer Relationship Management software.

When you have a good sales process, you can have someone tell you “No” in 2017 and say “Yes” in 2019.

One of my mentors always said, “We need sales today. We need sales next month. We need sales next year.”

Cold calling is going to be important for you guys with service businesses. It’s going to be important for you guys who have stores. It’s going to be important for you guys who sell on Craigslist.

If you are selling face to face, you need this course.

Cold calling is the fastest way to put money in your pocket. It’s hard, but if done correctly, you’ll never be broke or hungry. If you become great at cold calling, you can get rich.

The Most Powerful Way to Make Money Online Ever

The Most Powerful Way to Make Money Online Ever

Today we are going to talk about the most powerful way to make money online or in any business EVER! EVER! EVER!

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

So, if there’s someone you care about, be sure to share this video right now on your Facebook and other places so other people can see what you’re learning.

With that, let’s jump into it.

You’ve got to have an audience. Here’s a screenshot of a YouTube video, Homeless Millennial Survives By Picking Up Woman Every Night. What he is doing is utilizing the power of audience. This guy is literally homeless and his audience is women. He has a lot of free time and he has some dysfunction – there’s no doubt about that.

But he has studied his audience. He has no job, no car, no home and he’s getting more pussy than guys making $200K to $300K for FREE.

This is his game. He takes a bath, right. And he puts gel in his hair. He’s not smelly. He doesn’t have poor hygiene. He’s sleeping with two to three different women every week. If the sex is good, he can house up there for three of four days.

This really gets into what we’re talking about with audience. Here’s a guy that’s homeless and he’s getting a ton of pussy. Let’s just say he sleeps with two women a week. That’s 110 women a year. It’s all about his audience.

What does the average woman want to sleep with a dude?

It’s not a big dick. That’s a plus. But, that’s not it.

She wants to feel safe and secure and cared about. That’s what the average woman wants. I’m not talking about super freaks. I’m talking about the average girl.

This guy knows his audience and has no job, no home, and no car. He panhandles and gets about $100 to $150 a day on the street.

He has developed a protocol to approach women. He doesn’t lie about his stuff. He doesn’t lie about how he lives.

I remember this girl. I was working at the Gallup organization. I used to be that person that called you at dinner time and asked you questions. There was this girl that I worked with and she was so cute. One night we were walking out together and I told her, “You are so fucking beautiful that I want to make passionate love to you tonight.”

She just kind of looked at me and said, “Really?”

I came to find out that baby girl had some self-esteem issues. She had a low point that day and I said the magic words that opened up the pussy combination.

She said, “Your place or mine?”

I said, “I’ll go with you Boo.”

She had a car, I didn’t. I went to her place. I learned a lot from that thing. I won’t show you her picture. You wouldn’t believe it if I did. But you would think this girl had some self-esteem issues. This is part of knowing your audience.

If you know your audience, you can do so much more with less.

Once you know how your audience behaves, you can create compelling copy.

The power of audience, the power of systems, the power of protocol – this is how you make a lot of money.

Many people do the reverse. They come up with a plan to sell something because they can get it very cheaply. Your audience doesn’t give a fuck if you got it cheaply. You can’t even give something away for free if they don’t want it.

Question: How do you do market research?

Answer: I go to websites. I look at audience. It would take hours to explain all that I am going to explain in the Ecommerce course if you get the Never Broke Action Pack.

Building audience is about giving people something they want. Audience building takes an investment in time and people. A lot of people just won’t do that.

One of the reasons I’m in this media business is because it goes along with my personal proclivities. I’m a lifelong reader. I have read over 4000 books in my lifetime. As a little kid, I read every day. This is what I like to do. That’s why I can do this every day.

Many people don’t know what they want to do. They try and do all of this stuff and it doesn’t resonate with who they are as a person, and then they give up.

Question: My affiliate website hasn’t generated any money. What should I do?

Answer: Affiliate marketing is just as hard as building your own company. If you aren’t putting in the amount of effort you would to build your own company, you probably won’t make any money.

The money is in the audience. The homeless dude is banging badass chicks. Think about that.

Question: How do you find committed partners to work with?

Answer: You’re going to have to learn how to hire people. It’s a process. It’s a system. You’re going to make some bad decisions. The best way to learn how to make good decisions is to make a lot of bad decisions. That’s your learning path.

The more I fuckup, the more money I earn. It’s called the learning curve. The stuff that you can pull off when you don’t really care what people think about you is amazing.

When you do what others don’t do, you get results they don’t get.

Question: What do you think about self-published book or manuscripts sent to movie producers and what are the chances for success?

Answer: They aren’t looking for you Boo. I’m going to show you someone. She’s amazing. The Mis-adventures of Awkward Black Girl was her YouTube channel that she started in 2006. She got a lot of heat because it was about a black girl dating a white guy. She worked her ass off for a long time. Now she has a HBO show. That’s a road map for you.

Fuck sending in a manuscript. If your work is good – put it out there.

What you have to do today from a creative standpoint is put your shit out there and let it do what it’s going to do. If it stinks, ok. Rewrite it and put some better shit out there.

When your shit is good, they will come looking for you.

I got an offer for not one book deal, but two. I didn’t go looking for those motherfuckers – they came and found me because I was visible.

Get visible.

Do what you need to get what you want.

The money is in the audience. I’m an educational and media company. I’ve made a decision. I’m staying in my lane. Since I’ve made that decision, I am making more money than when I ran paid traffic.

The Challenges of Starting a Business – The Big Push – What to Do When Things Go Wrong

The Challenges of Starting a Business – The Big Push – What to Do When Things Go Wrong

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Have you ever had a day when everything was just incredibly hard? Have you ever had a week, a month, three months or a year like that? This video is about how to handle that stuff so you keep pushing and you can make that money.

Sometimes when you are building a business, everything goes wrong. I call that the “Big Push.” There’s this period of time when the big things, the little things and everything is just a struggle. Getting people to do what they used to do and fixing simple issues becomes difficult.

Now many people mistake this for bad juju saying things like, “God didn’t want me to have this.” That’s not it. What you are doing as a person is completely reorienting yourself with your universe. You are making massive changes.

The thing is, when you are starting a business, it pulls on so many of your resources as a human. It pulls on your spirit. It pulls on your soul. It pulls on your finances. There’s just nothing it doesn’t touch. It pulls on your relationships. Everything is being impacted in a major way. That’s a huge transformation. I mean, it is an incredible transformation.

If you go ahead and develop yourself and start a business and really push, you will experience more action points in a few years than most people experience in a lifetime. You are really speeding things up.

I’m going through this now. It’s been so long since I’ve experienced this. I haven’t started new things recently. Lately I’ve been working on an extension of something or a revision of something.

But, I am starting completely new things now, going in a new direction. I am going through it.

Simple stuff is bothering me. One of my pet peeves is people who wait until the last minute to pull into the turn lane and leave the ass of their car hanging out. To me, that’s just an abomination. I don’t know why people do it. But it happens. But now, it’s happening more than ever. The reason is because I am out here more, driving more.

Then I had an issue with my bank. I’ve never been late on my card. It is in great standing. I made a huge payment. The payment cleared, but they didn’t apply it to my account. When I went in, this is where it started to get really long and drawn out. Each time I talked to someone, I got a different answer. One person even lied to me on the phone.

So, I went in the other day and told them, “You need to do something for me to keep this account because you people are putting me through a lot of drama.” They wouldn’t do it. So, I closed the account because I was treated unfairly.

Then there were some business issues. There were delays and you start to question whether this thing is worth having. You have to remind yourself, it’s not you. It’s what you are doing. Many people who haven’t started a business before and who don’t have an entrepreneur in the family to reassure them that this stuff is normal, suffer.

I call this the “Big Push.” It’s like you are fighting against glue. It’s like you are walking in mud. If you’ve ever walked in mud, you know that every step is a struggle. It takes ten times the effort to take a single step. You are like, “Damn, I want to get out of this muddy patch.” You are in that mud field of entrepreneurship. Many people tap out.

They say, “This is too much. I wasn’t built for this. I shouldn’t be doing this. This is crazy.”

I can’t say when your mud field is going to end.

Lately, mine has gotten better. I’m on the shallow end now. It’s not as deep. But, for the last 12 weeks, stuff’s been happening. I’ve been trying to load up courses. The site didn’t work. I’ve got people trying to sign in and the apps don’t work. Every day, it’s been that kind of stuff.

Then, I sat down and told myself, that’s ok. I’ve been here before. What we’re going to do is work harder, not cut back, not slow down. I doubled my efforts. When I doubled my efforts two weeks ago, things started to get done.

That is what I mean when I tell you guys that a lot of people who use the word “easy” when they talk about starting a busy, obviously have never started a business.

I don’t know if anyone that I consider to be extremely successful has had an easy path accumulating wealth, building a durable business. When I say a durable business, I mean one that is not based on a trend.

Right now, these finger spinners or whatever they’re called, that’s a trend. A bunch of people are making a lot of money on that. The market is getting flooded. People can’t find them. The company that is making them is making a lot of money real fast.

That’s different than the drycleaners that’s been on the same corner for 25 years. That’s a durable business. That business has been profitable year in and year out.

Many people like the trendy stuff because you can stick and move. You can jump in and make some stuff happen really fast and get that money. But trends fade out.

Building a real business takes real work, commitment, effort and courage.

If you are building something and it seems like everything that could go wrong does go wrong, it’s not you. It’s what you are doing. It’s what you are creating. It’s normal.

As an entrepreneur, chances are you are the only one in your family or circle who is doing this. You may not have anyone to talk to about this stuff. My suggestion is to go out and make some entrepreneur friends that you can talk to.

If shit’s going wrong, people are saying “no” and doubting your abilities, then you are on the right path. If your family and friends are trying to dissuade you, then you are on the right path.

That’s your message today. I felt like putting that out there. I got on the other side of the mud field of struggle and I’ve got to tell you, you’ve got to keep going. If you don’t, you’re going to regret every breath you take because you tapped out like a weak little bitch.

Fear of Failure Holds You Back

Fear of Failure Is What Keeps You in the Same Place in Life

Do you have an inherent, oppressive fear of failure? Mindset is everything. I like to go ahead and Facebook a lot of my favorite authors. Some of them are overwhelmed, but a lot of them will respond to you, and you can have a conversation with them. It’s amazing.

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

I started thinking that information doesn’t even mean anything to most people. Because there is a ton of it. It’s out there. It’s available. There’s so many things you can do. There’s so many things you can build.

When you go through my training and courses, I give you five to maybe 25%. I’m a map. I’ve got some landmarks. I can dramatically cut your learning curve down on certain things.

However, it still requires that you put forth work. I’ve been having this conversation with a lot of people who are under the impression that everybody that is successful had some kind of advantage that they did not.

There are people who feel if they don’t have immediate success that the thing is rigged and it’s a scam. They believe there is something that is really, really wrong.

Let me give you some background about me. I dropped out of college. I was a “Special Ed” kid from first grade to sixth grade. I had a speech impediment, and I’m dyslexic.

Because my grandmother taught me how to read before I went to school, I never got behind. I couldn’t really speak correctly, but I was in some ways ahead of my peers. Back then if you had any type of learning disability, you got tagged. I got tagged.

There were these trailers and paraprofessionals for kids like me. I would go out there every day and sit with them. They would flip flashcards and work on me. This went on for six years.

Many of you who haven’t experienced such difficulty or roadblocks or struggles are not accustomed to the real face of success which is struggle. Success is struggle.

Your success isn’t when you built the company, sold it or cashed in on it. No, your success was when you were working at 2am in the morning on a line of code or a presentation with no money in the bank, when shit was dire and you still pressed forward. You persisted.

If when you failed, again and again and you persisted, then you were successful.

If you wake up every day and learn something new every day, you are a success.

Let’s go back to the idea that time is the most valuable thing you have. If you spent eight to ten hours of your time including the commute, and you make $25 per hour or $50K a year, then you’ve traded 200 hours a month of your life for $50K. That is 2400 hours of your life when you consider your commute. You literally earned that money with blood, sweat, tears and oxygen. That “struggle cash” you earned is hard for you to part with.

You spent precious resources to get that money so it is very hard to part with.

When I talk to a small business owner, they are still in that “struggle cash” mode. It is very different when you talk to someone who has mentally removed themselves from that mindset.

The resale community is nothing but “struggle cash.” That’s the reason they demand amazing information content for free. They have to have it. It’s part of their survival.

Your days don’t have to be filled with struggle. Making substantial sums of money is not evil or diabolical. If you think that way, that is your own insecurity talking. That is your fear of failure.

Once you get past the “struggle cash” mentality, you realize that this isn’t about being a millionaire or billionaire. It’s about being time rich.

I’ll just tell you, I’ve got members of my family who think I am a criminal. They say things like, “Let me get this straight. You sit at home and you talk on the internet and people pay you for that shit?”

They also say, “That ain’t no job for a real man. You need to be working in the coal mine or the steel plant, or driving a truck or something, earning an honest dollar for a hard day’s work.”

That’s why there is one side of my family I don’t fuck with anymore.

A lot of business owners struggle with a fucked-up family.

Part of your success is realizing that everyone is not going with you. I don’t care how much you feel you owe it to them They are mentally not prepared to move where you are. Once they reach a certain age, they are probably going to stay that way.

I will say something else. The people with the most education make the most money. That’s 100% true. That brings up the question, “What is education?”

People who love learning earn the most. It isn’t about having degrees. There are plenty of people with degrees working at Starbucks.

Another reason for fear of failure is because they are not brave enough to claim the life they could have. Instead, you take the life that is given to you or the life you are presumed you should have. That’s what happens a lot.

Essentially, you have to learn to filter out some of the advice you are given. People will try and help you out based on their understanding of life. Just look at the life of the person giving you advice to decide whether you should take them seriously.

Stop taking advice from people who don’t have shit, from a motherfucker who doesn’t have anything. I’m not talking about money. You can meet someone who doesn’t have anything, but he has travelled all over the world and he is rich in knowledge. You can meet someone who doesn’t have a lot of money, but they have special talents.

When you meet someone, who does nothing and who is not remarkable in any way, when they start giving you advice; don’t listen to them.

Can I teach you how to be a billionaire? Nope. I’m not a billionaire. Can I teach you how to be time free? Yep. I get to do what I choose with my time. That’s how I want it. Time is the greatest resource we have.

For the last seven years, I have been able to do pretty much what I want to do.

Listen to yourself if you are talking to yourself like someone who is terrified of success. Ask yourself why. It’s going to require that you change and that you make certain personnel decisions in your life. People that were permanent hire, they’re going to go to independent contractors, per diem or temp.

With that, have a good day.
