There’s a lot of people trying to decide what they want to do with their lives. Do you know what you want to be? What kind of job do you want? What's your future? If you decide to work for somebody else, where will that take you? You need to think about that. The best thing is to own your own business. You answer to yourself. No one else.
“BEING SUCCESSFUL. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS IN BEING SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE IS THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX.”
So that means to be successful, you should think outside the box. Don’t just think you have to go get a job. There’s more to life than that. Wouldn’t you rather own a business and be able to have people under you doing all the hard work? You’re lying on the beach somewhere, and you’ve got people doing the sweating for you. I've had several businesses. But I had to be there. There’s more potential for a business if you can make money without being there.
At one time, I had a personal training business. I was making good money, but I had to be there. There’s only so much time in a day. That meant there was a limit to what I could make. So, my goal now is to do things where I can make money and not be there. 5% Nutrition, for example. We have supplements for all your needs. People order their favorite pre-workout, or maybe All Day You May. Maybe they decide to try Crea-TEN, or something like Mentality. Someone can place an order anytime, and I don’t have to be there.
Another example is real estate. I collect the rent, and I don’t really have to be there at all. All I must do is contract out any repairs that have to be done. I can contract out any problems that come up. I don't have to be there. Maybe I have 5 different businesses and I'm not at any of those businesses.
