What Matters Most?
🤔 Last night, I had an experience that really made me think about this question.
👨🏼💻 I’m always busy working on something. In fact, you could say that I’m a bit of a workaholic. Even when I’m not working, I try to be efficient and productive.
🌙 Last night, my daughter did not want to go to bed. She was making up excuse after excuse, and would say anything to get out of bedtime.
💋 Every time I tried to grab her to take her to bed, she would run to my wife and say that she needed another kiss.
🤗 I kept trying to grab her, but then my wife said something profound. “She’s not going to want to cuddle with me like this forever…”
✅ I was so focused on “completing the task” that I didn’t take the time to BE PRESENT. The thing that matters the most to me is my family, but were my actions reflecting this?
❓ Do your actions reflect your priorities? I’d love to hear your thoughts :)

📈 The RIGHT Way To Sell 💰
Salespeople get a bad rap.
They're pushy, overly persistent, and don't listen.
Unfortunately, I believe that it's because they've been taught wrong.
Good salespeople are good marketers.
They find customer pain points.
Then they create solutions to those pain points.
When you provide value, the selling part is easy!

❌ 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"! 👇🏻

Does building a brand take too much work?
If I'm honest, I think about this almost every day. It takes a lot of energy to consistently show up. It takes a lot of effort and time... Is it even worth it?
I'd argue that it is (that's probably not a surprise though).
You see, it's precisely BECAUSE it is so hard that it is worth it.
Let me explain - If building a powerful brand was easy, everyone would have one... and then no one would. Marketing is about STANDING OUT from the competition. In order to stand out, you have to be doing something they aren't.
Put in the work. It'll be worth it! :)
