8 Crazy Services Every Millennial Entrepreneur Should Be Using

There are a few companies really disturbing the business world, but more importantly, the way we live our daily lives. It’s super hard to get out of our old ways, but lately I’m finding that it’s harder to fight it than to just use these wonderful tools.

As much as I hate to admit it, they really do make things easier. It’s time to embrace these new companies that are really pushing the boundaries because they are here to stay! The future is here. Here are the companies that are changing the way we live, work, and play:

VELOCITY BLACK

Velocity Black is one of the new subscriptions that I am interested in. It’s a fun service for millennials. No, seriously, its a fun service. Check out this cool vid:

JET

You can use this app to order your groceries. Who likes going to the store anyway? It’s such a chore. Check this out:

TESLA

Tesla just dropped yet another game-changing vehicle. The 250 MPH coupe, and a semi truck. While many people will be excited about the coop, I am more excited about the semi truck. Here’s why: Walmart has reportedly already ordered five semi trucks which is interesting, because it is a real life example of how transportation is about to change. People think that old industries will go away with the advancement of the Internet and technology. But, no matter how many things you are online, somebody still has to deliver them. Which makes the transportation industry the future of wealth creation and tesla CEO, Elon musk, knows this, man.

Here’s the thing, with 5 models now, everyone can get a Tesla. A Tesla model 3 is $28,000 after tax credits, which is cheap AF for a car that drives itself, and lets you stay productive (use your phone without looking) on the road. Check it out at

BITCOIN
It’s a new kind of money. It’s all virtual, and it’s giving the people back control of their money. Came out in 2009 during the financial meltdown, which was perfect timing.

It allows you to send virtually any amount of money to anybody in the world without a trace, without the wait, without the bank, and without the fees. Bitcoin is making a lot of people rich too. It debuted at $0.17 and is now worth $8000. For more information on Bitcoin, and how it works, register for my free bitcoin webinar on how $300 in bitcoin can change your life forever…

UBER

Your private driver.

We all know about this app by now. Uber lets you skip the cab and ride in style by delivery if a car and driver to your location. Just use their app. Most of my friends are millennials and have been in more Uber’s than grocery stores, but if you’re reading this to get a grip, check this video out:

JETSMARTER

Have you ever seen those young ass kids flying on private jets? Chances are, they are using this. This is the sickest app, you may not have heard of. It’s called JetSmarter, and it’s Uber for private jets. For $5000 a year you can take a private jet anywhere 3 hours from your house (driving hours). For $15,000, you can go anywhere in the world pretty much. With flights from NY to London, London to Moscow, and Moscow to Dubai.

You may be thinking $15,000?? 🤔 But, here’s the thing, traditional private jets are $20,000 round trip from Atlanta to Miami – one time. Make sense now? And it’s unlimited. Just pick a seat and go. First seat is free, additional seats are extra. You can even reserve the whole plane.

AIRBNB<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
f you get tired of sleeping in hotels,AirBnb let's you rent an entire home for the same price, and do it all from your phone. Get with it. https://youtu.be/dA2F0qScxrI

WARBY PARKER<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ut Warby on the list but I think they deserve a major shoutout because they are not actually a tech company like the rest of the companies on this list. Warby Parker actually makes sunglasses and eyeglasses. But, they have embraced technology like no other. In their app you can now find a perfect pair of shades using the iPhone X's Face ID. You don't even have to go to the store. If that's not enough, you can try on the pair in real life and keep them for 7 days before you pay for them. Insane. Check this out:

IN CONCLUSION<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
ber to your vacation home, party all night in some cool shades, all in time to come home to fresh groceries that your paid for all in Bitcoin. Crazy right?

You couldn’t imagine what I had to do to make my first $100k…

Where do I begin… A lot of times I don’t post pictures about the grind because most people don’t care about the actual work. They just want to see the cars and clothes. But I know there are some real hustlers out there who will appreciate this.

You couldn’t imagine what I had to do to make my first $100k…

• I had to sell pest control do door-to-door to learn how to sale my ass off. 😂

• I had to work at a car dealership to learn how a dealership works before we launched our own. (Software, Vendors, Training Manuals, Steps to the Sale, Finance and Insurance)

• I had to work at T-Mobile to learn cash handling procedures and retail. (Schedules, Cash delivery, holiday promotions)

• I had to go and get a couple stripes. I joined the Air Force to finish school for free. (Travel the world, Exposure to other cultures)

But no one sees that part. They just see the outcome. What I am trying to say is, You’re going to have to go though HELL and back to achieve your goals.

You have to be willing to do whatever it takes. Make sure you are doing what is best for you before you splurge. 1000% Lock in the life you want before you worry about impressing others.

If that means that you can’t go to a party, or on dates, or buy that car you want then so be it. You’ll be able to do all of that stuff when you get your money right.

Go and get your money right. By any means. Forget what people will think.

MASTER this and you will become unstoppable. 💯

Comment “HUSTLER” for a free e-copy of my book, Millennials to Millionaires 👇👇

3 reasons why you can’t succeed without a business plan.

Many start up entrepreneurs had the words 'business plan'; it means they have to stop the creative process to write down their ideas. Who would want to do that. Here are a few reasons why you want to:

IT'S NOT FOR YOU.

First, contrary to what most people think, your business plan isn't for you; it's for others. You know what you're going to do already. If anything your business plan with just reconfirm that. Other people need to see your vision even if they are not visionaries and a business plan helps that.

HOUSTON, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.

Secondly, there's just something about writing down your plan, or strategy, that makes you think about your process from head to toe. You will be forced at that moment to work out any problematic areas your idea may have – be it financial or legal. You will want to have solutions to these problems before you walk in the meeting and get roasted. 😂

DO YOU EVEN LIFT, BRO?

We hear it all the time, people that say have a certain skill or trade and they really don't. When you slap your business plan down on the table fewer people will doubt you then. Imagine being a banker that is considering giving you a business loan, but you don't have a plan… it ain't gonna happen. People need to know that you really intent to do the things you speak about. You have to show that you are committed.

CONCLUSION

Get one. 😂

I gotta get back to work… Let me know if you have any questions, and drop a comment below.

3 Tell-tell signs that you may have the wrong business partner…

Signing on the dotted line
Quentin B. Smith signs on the dotted line for an investment.

1. Make sure they have Good credit.

Over 700. Find out if they have student loans. As a new business owner, you will eventually be applying for loans using your personal credit until your business has established its own credit that is good enough to be run on its own.

Business are usually able to secure larger loans than individuals, making the credit check a little more strengent than normal personal credit applications. You want to make sure you have minimized your debt and your partner has too. 

2. Make sure they haven’t had any run ins with the law.

When looking for investments from outsiders, venture capital firms want to know if they can trust you with their money. How can they trust you if they find that you have two armed robberies on your record. 

If you and your partner are not ethical people, you won’t build an ethical business. Point. blank. period. 

3. Make sure they have kids. lol

I know this sounds counterintuitive, but I prefer to work with partner with a family than a partner without one. People with kids are not playing around. They have mouths to feed…

In conclusion

No matter how much you like a person’s personality, they have to be good on paper too. As you can see, It pays to stay clean and stay out of trouble. Hope this article helps. 

Wishing you success,
