Mini-thread on where I fucked up in 2019 caused by setting time-based goals that would have me making irrational decisions

Hopefully someone can learn from my mistakes

Cc @tahmmygiovanni
Goal:

Have a network of 20 million followers by the end of the year

Result:

Spent $300k on pages, half of which died out within a couple months the because I went for the cheapest pages rather than the highest quality
Also had $50k worth of pages that got banned right after buying them because I didn’t take the time to properly vet the kid I bought them from

Lesson:

Never rush investments just because you think you know your industry like the back of your hand
Goal:

Hit $1m liquid by the end of the year

Result:

Ended up spending a bunch of time working on side projects that took my focus off of Bolis Media, causing Bolis Media to not grow at all from May-November

Lesson:

When your business is killing it, KEEP BUILDING MOMENTUM
Goal:

Have all Bolis Media operations streamlined within 6 months

Result:

Paid over $50k for tech that’s unusable by us because I tried rushing a massive project, leading to huge miscommunication between me & the dev team

Lesson:

Do NOT rush building any tech, do it right.
Overall Lesson:

Fuck arbitrary numbers

Focus on what matters, continue to learn & grow, and don’t rush anything

Everything will always happen exactly as it’s meant to be

A THREAD on a Killer Untapped Business Model

Cost: FREE + Shipping

Shipping = Retweet

If you want to get picked for my agency to contract you, you have to RT this thread

0 Start-up Cost

0 Prior experience required

$20-50k/mo potential
First, why am I giving out a business model that can generate $20-50k/mo for free?

Sinple

Most people that follow me have a lot more time on their hands than I do

& Although I could easily build a team to do this

I wouldn’t have time to scale it myself
So what do I get out of giving it out?

I get to offer my clients this service, and you get paid for it

It’s a textbook win win.

The best part?

All you need is a phone.

Literally nothing else

As promised, A Thread on FREE Traffic

Applicable to almost any industry

If your product can be sold online, you need this
Quickest way to generate sales (and get ad contnet);

Send your product to niche influencers in your space

But everyone knows that

Although it’s a great strategy, that doesn’t really solve the “free traffic” problem because it’s a 1 time thing.

So how do we do it?
Memes.

Kinda...

Except, not all memes are created equally

& as a result, not all “meme” pages are created equally

But you can bet your ass where you have eyeballs, you have money

& thats what we’re getting into today
