Read this to avoid every mistake I've made in business.

I did some stupid sh*t & I don't want you to do the same.

// THREAD //
1. Scammed by 'mentorships' (twice)

Was sold the dream by 2 people, believed both of them and handed over a decent amount of money.

Lesson: People will do anything to take your money
Doing things because of money not because of value.

Lesson: Value ALWAYS comes first. If you follow the money people will smell it on you
Expecting others to give me the answers.

Lesson: No one has all the answers. It's your job to go and figure them out
Not researching ideas before jumping into them.

Lesson: Don't be hot headed going at 100mph for everything. Take your time & be dillegent
Not trusting my instinct with people.

Lesson: Trust your gut always
Not trusting myself.

Lesson: If you don't back yourself, who will?
Trying to find the holy grail.

Lesson: There is no "one thing" that will solve all your problems. Wealth is a process, not an event
Looking for shortcuts.

Lesson: Accept that everyone has to go through the process, enjoy it & stop always wishing for more
Overusing automation.

Lesson: Understand how EVERYTHING works before trying to outsource / automate. I feel like everyone is rushing to have "passive income" they don't even understand how their business works
Sacrificing other areas of my life.

Lesson: Prioritise health & family over everything. No amount of money in the world will replace your health or family
Not being content with where I'm at now.

Lesson: Practicing gratitude daily has changed my life (honestly). Think about 1 thing each day you're grateful for
Expecting instant results.

Lesson: Ignore 99% of the BS you read online about "make 20k/ month in 6 weeks" - this shit is toxic & a lie
Not doing things I found fun.

Lesson: Jumping into a business you hate will make you unhappy fast. Find something you actually get a thrill out of doing, then go help people do it!
I'm sure there's lots of others I've missed. But you've made it to the end so I thank you for that.

How I became an Airline Pilot, Personal Trainer & Business Owner in under 5 years.

A thread on how discipline & aspiration changed my life:
I've always said anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it.

No one wants to put their mind to it because they're scared.

I've made so many mistakes to get where I am now.

Some small.
Some nearly cost me my life.

But here's how I did it (& how you can too)
The hardest part about getting started is finding direction.

This is frustrating when you have motivation without direction.

You have to start with the end in mind -

Ask yourself questions...

Here's 9 Reasons Having a 'Good Job' Won't Make You Happy.

Written by a 6-figure salary employee

At the age of 20 I achieved my dream job earning over $100k.

2 years later I wanted out ASAP.
1. You have no control over your life.

Got a wedding? Nope.
Friends party? Sorry can't make it.

If a company controls your time, you don't control your life.

How I overcame anxiety & started building a business during the pandemic.

// THREAD //
Around 2 years ago I was in a hole mentally.

No direction
Wasn't eating
Panic attacks
Having night terrors 3x a night

But I had the courage to turn it around.
After 6 months of intensive therapy, my mindset had shifted beyond belief.

Write your thoughts out
Speak to people

I've met 1000+ different people in the past 4 years.

Here are 8 ways you can build million $ relationships.

** THREAD **
Talk about them -

If you take 1 thing away from this, let it be this.

Everyone's favorite subject is THEMSELVES.

Listen to how many times they use the words "me" & "I".
People LOVE to talk about themselves.

You should ask about THEM.
Mirroring -

Use it to build rapport.


They say "I just got back from a business trip"

You say "Business trip?" adding a voice inflection.

This allows you the chance to learn more about their situation without breaking rapport.
