“I would love to build a business but I don’t have the time”

It’s crazy to me when people say “I would love to build a business but I don’t have the time”
we both know it’s an excuse...

and if you don’t own your time...

that should be the exact reason why you build..
to buy your time back!
What you don’t have time for is trading your 40-50 hours a week for a paycheck that isn’t giving you the life you want doing shit you hate!

Hop in the drivers seat!

Stop playing Russian Roulette with your financial future.
I'm sure you can finish this sentence "Don't put all your eggs________
in one basket!...
of course you have...
and look...
you have all your eggs in one basket...
and you aren't even holding the basket!
If you have one source of income and you don't control it you're setting yourself up to be leveraged in the worst kinda way!
Stop grinding for little money, when you could work less for massive money. The answer's simple: Instead of riding along, drive. Instead of following, lead. Instead of consuming, create. Instead of building their brand, build yours.
Hop in the drivers seat of your future!

Never take advice from a quitter

Never take advice from a quitter . There may be people you love and respect because of familiarity, the role they have played in your life , or perceived accomplishment. . This doesn’t mean you should take advice from them in EVERY area of your life. . Especially if they have failed in the venture you are pursuing. . Be careful who you listen to.
It could be costly.

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Should we tell people not to try?

Think about it...
Growing up there are millions and millions of kids playing sports
 A few make it to middle school 
A couple make it to high school  
Only 480,000 become college athletes. 
Only 2% will go pro 
even less will get paid

Should we tell our kids not to play, not to try?
sounds silly right? 
Why do we do this to our friends who want to start businesses?! 
Should we tell people not to become entrepreneurs, not to try?
sounds silly right? 
NEVER listen to small thinking from small people who gave up on themselves and now believe you can’t do it either.

I'm grateful for time freedom

Mom and I go to lunch EVERY week

Every week without fail she asks "Do you have time to go? I know you're busy...it's okay if you can't"
I know she wants to go but is concerned how "busy" I am.

Truth is, there's ALMOST ALWAYS something I could be doing..but I like our lunches and our random discussions.
