    12: Stop fooling yourself - you already have all you need to get started.

    Whatever you don't have but think you need before you can get started on your project or business idea, while it might be nice to have or might make things easier, it doesn't prevent you from getting started. Often, we just have to look at the hard work we're avoiding and do that work.
    The commitment to doing the work you CAN do is more important than having all the tools right now. Life has a funny way of showing up with what we WILL need when we've taken the first step.

    11: Why you will probably fail at multi-level marketing

    11: Why you will probably fail at multi-level marketing

    Too often, we discount how hard it is to start something new. When you're venturing off to start a business, the days can be incredibly dark. So much so where you'll wonder if all your efforts are futile.
    For those among us who really believe we have the better solution currently available to our market, a better service or product, and are passionate about it to the point where we'll go through hell to see it through, quitting just isn't an option.

    10: You have enough time. But do you want it bad enough?

    10: You have enough time. But do you want it bad enough?

    Whether it's 2 hours per day or 20 minutes, each of us has enough time to work DAILY on things that bring us closer to our dreams. It doesn't matter if you have kids, a spouse, a job, or many other responsibilities, you have the time. You'll have to fight to protect your time, but it's there.
    Turn off the game, lock the door, put down Instagram. If you sit and chill on the couch every night eating popcorn and drinking soda, it's a lot easier to do that again the next day also. Shake yourself out of complacency and go to work.

    009: Are You Wasting Time & Opportunities With Your Social Media?

    009: Are You Wasting Time & Opportunities With Your Social Media?

    If you're really passionate about your business, you'll spend the majority of your time building an audience *around* your business. When you've built an audience (and not just a bunch of Likes), you're shepherding a community that's looking to you to lead the way.
    What you do with that attention is up to you. Maybe you use it to sell your products. Maybe you use it to book more shows. Just like electricity and fire, you can use it for good or for bad. That's not the point. What matters is that you're using social media mindfully -- fully aware that you're developing a narrative around yourself. So when you're constantly posting about frivolous things that don't matter like Real Housewives of Atlanta or who dropped 30 on the Warriors last night, people will take you a lot less serious.
    If you're building a business, it's time to get serious.

    008: Business Advice For Barbers, Hairstylists, And Others In Personal Care Services

    008: Business Advice For Barbers, Hairstylists, And Others In Personal Care Services

    I witness barbers turn down $50-$60 an hour regularly. Breaks my heart.
    The shop is a social place, but its a business first. If people aren't making money, then there's ultimately no shop to go to. Too many barbers forget that they're in the *service* business and make their customers feel like its a privilege to be in their chair. They may not say it, but they show it by behaviors that don't express appreciation. And if you're trying to build your business, your actions should match it -- use the tools you have to get butts in your chair instead of wasting precious time liking pics on IG.
    I'm really good at cutting my own hair, so hate me if you want for this rant. I just hope this video helps you grow your client roster and build a reputation for valuing peoples time AND for giving dope fades.

    007: Why You Should Sell Them What They Asked For First, Innovate After

    007: Why You Should Sell Them What They Asked For First, Innovate After

    You might have a lot of great ideas, but when people have a job for you, they usually have a specific vision in mind. Don't lose the opportunity to close the deal by trying to sell them something they didn't ask for. Make the deal, then educate them. At the end of the day, you have to give them what they want - even when you know there's a better way.

I really appreciate your programming to encourage and support entrepreneurs. I have been in business for 40 years, started at 18 years old and every opportunity I get I motivate African-Americans wanting to start their own business. Thank you.

Listening to this podcast was well timed and on point. As I listened while driving, I felt encouraged to do more and get to work.
Side note: while driving back from a wrestling scrimmage with 5 teenagers, it was great for them to “get it”.

I’m all ears
