When I have something like this, I have to talk about it. Take a second and review this phone message I got. “I’m a huge fan. I take to heart the things you say in your YouTube videos. I purchased some online courses as well. I would love to talk to you.”
That’s good stuff, right? Let me tell you how it went down. We’re not going to use her real name. For the purposes of this blog, we’ll call her Lisa.
Lisa is a hustler. Lisa has a lot of damn energy. She is a stay-at-home mother of three married to a professional. She decided she wanted to contribute more to the family. She had some personal goals and is energetic.
So, she started watching the channel. She’s a fan. She’s also a member of HustlersKungfu.com. Lisa took advantage of the phone calls I put out there.
This is what Lisa did. She went on Craigslist and found one item. She bought that item and rehabbed it. Then she flipped it and made $2500. She is on target to sell 2 of these items a month for a $5K per month income.
What’s so special about this? She learned this from the channel. This isn’t the information she paid for. She actually told me over the phone that she bought those courses as a way to say thank you.
The reason I am talking about this is because there are many people out there waiting for something to happen. They’re looking for a magic jelly bean. They’re looking for an immediate solution for a long-term problem, which is the fact you’re not living how you want to live. You have to take action.
Lisa had watched the videos, and more importantly, she took action. She wanted to do more. When we were talking, there were things that came out.
In the consultative process, many people come to me and say they want a specific result. Typically, as a good consultant, my job is not to give you what you want, but to give you what you need. Because people who are hustling are moving so fast with their head down, they can’t see the things I can see when I take a look at the business from a higher level and a different perspective. I can connect the dots.
Now, how does all this work? Number #1 is you’ve got to do the work. That’s why I shared Lisa’s success story with you. She did the work and she got results. She put in a lot of hours. It didn’t happen in a snap for her. She’s putting in real time five days a week. She’s treating this as an enterprise.
Many of you have hustles that you treat like the side bitch and you wonder why you’re not getting wife returns. You can’t keep treating your hustle like a side bitch and expect full matrimonial returns. It’s not going to happen. You’ve got to treat an enterprise like it’s a priority.
One of the things that happens when people start to change their lives is fear starts to crop up. Self-doubt enters the picture. In Lisa’s case, she has a lot of talent and struggles with too many options. There’s almost too much stuff on her plate.
Here’s an idea that comes up every now and then that I need to discuss. People believe they can get everything worthy in life for free on the internet. There is stuff I teach that I know you can’t get on the internet, because I created the shit myself.
For the sake of argument, let’s say you can find anything on the internet. So, you’ve found this info. How has it improved your life? How much action have you taken? This is the true litmus test of the free information packet. Has your life improved month after month, year after year? Financially, have you seen measurable growth that continued?
If it’s free but it doesn’t benefit you or you don’t know how to use it, what’s it worth? One thing I’ve learned as a mentor and an educator is that most folks don’t know how to learn. Most people stop reading after college. They stop learning.
I never stop that process. I continue to learn every day. Every year my life has improved as a result of the new things I learn and apply.
Let’s go back to Lisa’s story for a minute. The main reason she succeeded is because she took action. I love to get feedback like that. When you get somebody that doesn’t know how to learn and they do something and it doesn’t work out, the first thing they do is blame the source instead of looking inward to consider that maybe they didn’t execute properly.
How many times have you heard me say my first book was jacked up. I didn’t blame anybody else. It was me. I didn’t know what I was doing. But I got better and kept pushing myself.
For those of you who want a consultation, this is the criteria. You’ve got to have a viable business going on. You’ve got to have some revenue. If you want to spend the money and talk to me about developing a business. That’s on you. You should know that the floor starts at $6500. That’s the floor and the price goes up from there.
If you’re interested, it’s probably going to take three to twelve talks to figure out what you’re going to do. I’m going to ask you questions like where do you want to be in 10 years.
Everybody is always focused on now. This is what I’ve learned about most people. I’ll teach you how to make your business work for you personally. We create plans and goals and then we create an implementation process to achieve those goals. That first month, we’ll talk quite a bit. It takes time for me to learn your strengths and weaknesses.
