Social media fame

Never let a person who’s accomplished nothing tell you anything!
You can give advice if it educated, you can teach and mentor if you have the knowledge, but it’s got to be for the right reasons, there’s a lot of people on social media charging between £150 to upwards of £20’000 for personal one to one coaching, truth is you can get everything you need for free on you tube.
You want to learn Amazon FBA, affiliate marketing, blogging or podcasting then there’s 1000’s of videos to teach you, don’t get me wrong there’s plenty of great teachers out there but do your research first or your just wasting your money.

We all want the dream! You know the one, fast cars, models, luxury super boat of some description and of course the money, Instagram is the place to be for social media fame in 2019, it’s a VIP lounge for the get rich quick and shameless to peddle self help and money making dreams to anyone who will listen and there’s no end to so called influencer less than half your age showing off more than double your money and then some! But what’s real and what’s fake, don’t get me wrong a mentor is a great investment if it’s the Wright one you need with the right skills you want to teach you but if all you have to go by is a well edited Instagram video of them throwing money off there boat and racing through Miami in a Lamborghini then it’s possible there not for you.

This system works and it’s massive, you by into a course or mentorship In the form of emails or webinars and they tell you about accountability (witch basically means your responsible if you don’t get rich) but what are you learning?

A mentor should provide a bespoke service tailored to you as not every business idea or platform is the same, although some of the teaching can be universal it should cater for your needs as an entrepreneur or it’s just another waste of money that will send you backwards rather than forwards in the direction of success.

If your going to get a mentor and your dead set then great, but this should be to sharpen your skills, you gotta look at each Business you start as an investment! A long term investment that needs to mature over time with work. The mentor you chose should be able to Taylor your needs into a viable business, these people aren’t going to make you rich over night in fact they won’t make you rich at all! Remember only “YOU” will make “YOU” rich, you get out what you put in 10x fold.

Everything you need you already have! Every Resource you need to learn is free! All you need is the motivation to want bad enough to start!

Don’t just think big, Think BIG!

If your going to think at all then think big!

And if your going to think big then think bigger!

There’s no limit to your dreams, only the limitations you set your self. Your imagination is the foundation to the life you dream of because that’s were it all starts, if that dream doesn’t scare you then it’s not big enough and needs more imagination! As the saying goes “aim for the moon because If you miss you’ll Land amongst the stars” then if you miss your in good company.

A thought that terns into an idea, an idea terns to a plan and a plan becomes the pathway that leads to your dream, but that dream can only become a reality if you work at it with the enthusiasm it deserves.

Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try! Fear will kill your dreams and they only thing to fear is not trying or giving your plan the 100% it needs and deserves.

Dont panic

Dont panic or worry if you find a problem or something goes wrong, when something bad happens your immediate reaction is either to worry, be scared, panic or could even be to cry, but at that point you know something? You know that’s it it’s done, you can’t change it, at that point you have to switch to damage control, you go from problem to solution, and the speed you do that is critical to minimising the pain, that pain could be loosing money, a business, a partner, anything, you have to stop any impact on your family, you gotta take this on the chin and fix it that’s it, most of the time getting in to the mess your worrying about take effect and time, if you where willing to put the effort in then working to get out won’t be impossible, but what you don’t do is keep panicking! Because when you panic or worry after somethings happened, after they imminent shock or a problem you’r doing 2 things.
the first is your wasting time, this thing or problem has happened, we’ve established it cant be changed and you need to move forward, you need to switch on and start reversing it, or rectify the problem, damage control is important and it’s critical you start straight away to minimalise the fall out, it could mean moving money to stop a financial leak of funds, it could mean getting legal advise to minimalise a possible prosecution. It could mean rebuilding your life by changing or getting away. Either way the solution has to start straight away.
And the 2nd is simple! Worrying means you suffer twice, you’ve had the shock and you have the brusing from the problem. Prevention is better than cure so make steps to re-build and start again, but this time stronger and with that extra knowledge that this will never and I mean never happen again.
