I can seriously keep goin, but you see the difference right? I completely shifted my identity from a broke high school drop out, to an award-winning seven figure agency owner that teaches people all over the world.

I’ve learned all of these skills by reading books, watching tutorials, hiring coaches, hiring employees more talented than me, and by pushing myself out of my comfort zone ever chance I could.

The last and the most important lesson here is I surrounded myself with successful minded people and we helped each other sharpen our axe’s.

You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to start to be great!!!
