3 Common Misconceptions About Getting Rich… 🤑

Nowadays Im spending more money than even Im comfortable with. I mean damn, I just sent both of my parents to Cancun for 4 days – and they are separated. I Never imagined seeing so many transactions on my American Express. Who knew, this lifestyle would be so expensive? I used to think that you could just stop spending money when you want, but it doesn’t work that way; let me tell you why:

You Gotta Spend the Most Money to Get Rich…

I know, it sounds weird. But, as the saying goes, you have to spend money to make money. Most people realize that even after you have your business up and running, your business expenses will increase as you bring in more money. For example; you will have to run more Facebook ads to get more paying customers, and that is fine. But most people don’t realize that your personal expenses will continue to increase too.

Things you can expect to pay for (that you didn’t have to before):

  1. Dinners. You can’t meet with a potential partner without covering the tab. Expect to spend $250-$350 for a nice dinner out. You can’t expect to close the deal without having to pick up a tab or two.
  2. Gas. Gas isn’t expensive, if you just drive to work and back. But chances are you will be picking people up from the airport. Driving around for meetings. Shopping and going on a lot of dates because you finally got your clout up.
  3. Food. Since you will always be on the road, you won’t be eating at home anymore. You have to grab food on the road, in between meetings, at dinner, and at the most expensive place of ALL – the Airport.

Get comfortable with it

Make sure you budget for these upcoming expenses. And don’t try to keep your expenses down. They will naturally need to go up in order for you to expand your business. This will be uncomfortable at first because our parents always taught us not to spend money if you don’t have to; but it’s just money. Money is just a tool for you to use to get where you’re trying to go. So use it.

I hope this helped. Leave a comment below. And share this with a friend.

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:

https://velocity.black

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:

http://jet.com

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

http://Tesla.com

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:

http://uber.com

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

http://Airbnb.com

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:

http://WarbyParker.com

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?

Is this is too much change too soon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 👇

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. 💯

The one thing that productive people do that you don’t.

So football season is here and everybody is thinking about strategies. Everyone knows that consistency is key. To win you need to practice winning. You need a schedule with built-in successful habits.


Now, when I say the word schedule, I am not talking about anything strict. Your schedule should really just be a set of parameters that you work within. For example, I make sure I leave room in my schedule for spontaneous stuff to happen. We all need something new to happen so that we become inspired and have good stories to tell. For example, my daily routine goes like this:

5:30 AM: Wake up and think about 3 things I am grateful for. Then Bose headphones on!(Rick Ross, or some other money music.😜)

6:00 AM: Review my goals, then I’m out.

6:10 AM: Breakfast. I check my texts, calls, and voicemails, Instagram, FB, Twitter in the checkout line.

6:45 AM: Get to the office. Do 50 push-ups. Then I’m working. (Insert your job here.)

9:30 AM: Breakfast #2. Usually some kind of fruit, protein bar, sandwich, something healthy. It’s been almost 3 hours since I’ve eaten and I’m hungry AF. (Plus, this is how I get some extra protein). 

11:00 PM: Lunch

3:30 PM: Half of the day is done. I grab another snack and head to the…

4:30 PM: Gym for 40 mins. Three days on. One day off. Run 1.5 miles or more every other day. 

5:15 PM: I’ll usually eat on the way home from the gym, shower, and take a quick nap for as long as I need. (Don’t interrupt sleep. It’s important. It allows your muscles to repair, and gives you energy for the second half of the day.

That’s just the first half of my day. 

ROUND 2:

7:15: Watch 2 videos: one 20-30 min video on business, and one on relationships. (For some reason, it’s fascinating learning how girls think and it helps when ‘networking’ lmao)

8:15: Homework.

10:00 PM: Phone. (Caked up.) 

10:30PM: Sleeeeep.

I’ve never shared my schedule with anyone. I know that if people know how hard I work, then they’ll try to outwork me. Not happenin’. (Sorry, I’m competitive like that.) But as you can see this is a very structured week. I have freedom in my work day-to-day with built in successful habits, such as working out, eating, sleeping, and studying my game. 

As for spontaneity, on the weekends, I do whatever the f*ck I want; as you can see

Consistency wins. Hopefully this as inspire you to create some parameters in your life that allow you to practice successful habits so that you can outwork your competition.
