If you dive deeper into my work and my ideas, there's a common theme that I've shared for years and that's making the Ownership Mentality a way of life.
With @joebudden and @tylerperry adding new chapters to the discussion, here's why it's more important than ever.
When you Own your ideas, you control the way the story is told. As you grow older, you begin to realize the value of legacy. How do you want to be remembered?

When you create a new platform, the "legacy conversation" must be a part of your business planning.
The #1 mindset shift that you must adopt is that:
You work for them and build for you.
Your mission at any company is to sharpen your skills on the job and come home and build a platform around it.

The last 3 companies I worked for all sponsored my brands. Well-documented.
The company that you work for is your first Investor in the empire that you are building.
Don't quit the job if you aren't ready. Build your value and pitch them to become a partner.
As you begin to work for yourself, you must *protect your ability to choose.*
The right to say no is your most powerful bargaining chip.
Your brand will not get paid what it's worth *until* you understand this.
Most of you take the first offer. You're worth more.
Negotiation is all about getting the most value at the lowest price. Whatever you're being offered, just know it's not the max deal.
When you affirm your worth in negotiating with a large entity, your reputation will get damaged.
Here's a snippet on a convo w/ the legendary Starbury back in 2010.
In creating his own shoe, he was labeled crazy. Do you see the pattern?
