Genuine Connections = ⬆️ Sales
I just had an incredible conversation in the LinkedIn DMs with someone that I really look up to.
He posted a story and I sent him a quick message related to what he was talking about in the story.
This turned into an amazing GENUINE conversation about our businesses and goals.
The intention of this conversation wasn’t to sell.
I wasn’t spamming him.
Instead, I was building a real relationship.
We are now talking about potentially collaborating and doing business together.
Want more sales? Create relationships.

🚫 Don’t get so focused on success that you don’t see it right in front of you! 😳
I’m always wanting more. In part, that’s what makes me an entrepreneur. I have a burning desire to succeed, and work my tail off to do so.
That said, sometimes I’m so focused on the hustle and pursuit of success that I fail to celebrate and recognize the small wins.
🙏 Take time to be grateful.
📈 Think about where you were a year or even five years ago.
🎉 Celebrate the small wins.
Take care! :)
🚫 I need fancy equipment to start producing content 🚫
No. You don't.
📹 You don't need a fancy camera or lights to start a youtube channel.
🎙 You don't need an amazing microphone or studio to start a podcast.
💻 You don't need the best computer to build something amazing.
In fact, I would argue it's the exact opposite.
⬇️ Start small.
📱 Record your video or podcast on your phone.
✏️ Practice making content.
💥 Learn what you're passionate about.
🙌 Provide value.
You can always upgrade the equipment or quality later.
Waiting for the best equipment is really just an excuse. It's a way to procrastinate the creative process.
Don't do it.

I've been thinking a lot about friction lately. Especially as I'm working from home and have more distractions than ever before.
Friction is simply a tool in our toolbox. Are you using it to your advantage?
⏫ We should increase friction in the things we want to stop doing. (example: move distracting apps to a distant page and folder on your phone).
⏬ We should decrease friction for the things we want to do more (example: I've started putting a book next to my bed so I read more often).
These ideas are not my own :) Thanks to Nir Eyal and his book, Indistractible, for helping me think about this.
