Be a good person.
Not because you want people to see you as a good person.
Not because it’s good for your brand (although it is).
Not because you want praise.
Do it because it’s the right thing to do.
Just be the best person you can be.

❌ My first business was an absolute failure... 🚫
I grew up in a large family. My Dad, a small business owner and entrepreneur, taught me to work hard and dream big. I remember some of my favorite moments with him were talking about business or coming up with new business ideas.
⚡️ When I was 16, I started a business with a goal to sell and install wind turbines and solar panels. I contacted a manufacturer, and even became an official reseller.
😩 I didn’t sell one wind turbine or solar panel.
🙌🏻 That said, I learned valuable skills. I built a website for my little business. Admittedly, it wasn't a great website, but that was the start to the path that I'm still on today.
🤔 Was it really a failure? I guess it depends on how you define success and failure. What metrics do you use to measure them?
Tell me about some of your "failures"! 👇🏻

A #branding lesson from #Apple
🎧 Apple just released a $549 pair of headphones 🎧
🤑 Yes, you heard me right. $549.
🛍 And they've already sold out.
🤷🏼♂️ Why? How is it that they can sell a product that's so much more expensive than their competitors?
It's all about the brand.
Apple has two incredibly powerful brands behind this new product: Apple and AirPods.
They've built trust that they can build a premium experience with headphones.
Let's learn from Apple. The better your brand is, the more you can charge for your products and services because they'll be in higher demand.
🙌 Time to start working on your brand.

Is content creation worth it? It's a lot of work!
It's worth it if... 👇🏻
I just got off a call with someone that is incredibly passionate about a specific topic. They want to create a blog and podcast, but they wonder: is it worth it? it's a lot of work.
Here's my answer: What's your end goal?
Are you doing it as a hobby, or do you want it to make money?
Don't get me wrong. A blog and podcast can make A LOT of money.
That said, most people burn out long before they get there.
If you're doing it because it's something you love to do, then you're more likely to make it to the point where it makes money.
Find something you'd do even if it never makes a penny. Then work as hard as you can to make a 1M+ :)
