So the perception is that somehow I’m “anti-job”.

This isn’t anywhere near accurate. I’m “anti-POINTLESS Job”

Some of you are working jobs that have nothing to do with your passion or your purpose. Every single hour of your day is a precious amount of time that you can’t get back. Why not get something useful for your time?

Please don’t tell me that your “paycheck” is what you’re getting for your time. That’s a really bad trade and quite frankly, you’re getting the short end of the stick. Even prostitutes get paid. A check is not enough.

As a business owner/entrepreneur/potential entrepreneur, you must be strategic in everything that you do, including maximizing your time.

If you have to work a job, find something that is going to teach you something, or enhance your skills.
When I wanted to learn about SEO, SEM, and selling digital products for small and medium sized businesses, I looked into taking some courses at my alma mater and a few other universities. The costs were astronomical! It was at that point that I looked around and I found a position in a large corporation that would train me to become an expert in the very things I needed to strengthen.

If I had taken the course I wanted to take that was $8,000, I wouldn’t have had the real world experience of how customers respond to certain products, which campaigns work best for products vs. services etc. In short I would have been down 8 grand and still lost as to how to practically apply the knowledge I received in that six months.

Instead, I went and got free training and real life sales experience for 6 months and made over $35,000 doing very little work.

The moral of the story is, that it’s okay to get a job but it in some way should ideally align with your business goals. If you’re uncomfortable speaking to people, work in a call center. If your dream is to own a day care center, work in a day care center or moonlight in Chuck E. Cheese. It will teach you to have patience with children and it will show you if that line of work is an undertaking you’ll find appealing.

If you can’t find something that aligns with your dream or your passions, drive for uber. This way you can make your own hours, pay your bills and grow your business at the same time.

Keep in mind, there’s a huge difference between being an apprentice and being a wage slave

What is Your “Happy Meal”? http://businessbullyshow.com/what-is-your-happy-meal/ Mon, 01 Jan 2018 19:44:00 +0000 http://flourish.elegantchildthemes.com/?p=148 I’m always humbled to see people considering me an expert or a “Beast” at anything.

I’m always humbled to see people considering me an expert or a “Beast” at anything.

A brand is more than a logo, and while I’m very unconventional, the way I move is my personal definition of branding:

If I give a kid a small cheeseburger with fries and a drink, the kid is Happy. If I place those same items in a decorated cardboard box and toss in a $0.30 toy, that same kid is thrilled because they now have a HAPPY MEAL.

To have a brand is evoke or provoke a feeling, good or bad when people hear your name or see your logo. If you’re not generating a reaction, it’s hard to generate sales.

I’d rather be hated than suffer the pain of indifference. I’d rather be talked about than tolerated. I’d rather win with a few than lose with the masses. But what do I know?

Black Sheep and Wrong Horses http://businessbullyshow.com/black-sheep-and-wrong-horses/ Mon, 01 Jan 2018 13:53:00 +0000 http://flourish.elegantchildthemes.com/?p=1 I know it’s hard to understand that people fear and have feared your uniqueness since you

I know it’s hard to understand that people fear and have feared your uniqueness since you were a kid. You march to your own drummer, and now that people are starting to bob their heads to your beat, the same people who shunned you are the same ones acting as if they cared.

That sucks.

But that’s not your fault. Standing in your truth and in the God given gifts is what you’re supposed to do.

Yes they bet on the wrong horse in high school- you weren’t voted most likely to succeed but you’re successful. So what? They bet on the wrong horse but you won the race!

Your family told you to pick a “safe” career but you didn’t and that decision paid off! Being “safe and practical” is the reason why most people die from mediocrity. If being different makes you the Black sheep of the family, that’s okay! Black wool makes awesome sweaters.

I want you to thrive because that’s why God put you here!

Now get up and kick today’s ass!

You’re welcome!
