FBP #42: My Last Day

FBP #42: My Last Day

2020-01-3117:25

A bittersweet day, for sure. Today is my last day at my full-time gig as a Marketing Director. It's difficult to move away from a situation that you've become comfortable in. For me though, the thought of regretting not pursuing my goals is much worse. I am moving towards a lifestyle that will be much more flexible and require a higher level of self-discipline. I am ready to be the captain of my own ship and build my own empire. It's time to take the next step and I'm excited for what's next. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Some things I've learned: Always be grateful for the opportunities that people give you. Never burn any bridges. Build up your network with people by providing genuine value and actually helping. Focus on building things into your life that are productive and bring you fulfillment. Be genuine and authentic with your recommendations. Become an expert. Stop caring whatsoever about what other people think. It will severely limit your success. If you believe in it, go for it. Go out and find the answer. Some people will help you, but they're not obligated to. If you want to change yourself or learn more, you have to do it for yourself. Share your knowledge with the world. Someone needs it. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
We're almost at the end of this chapter. I only have a couple of days left at my full-time job. It's scary and exciting at the same time. One thing that I am focusing on moving forward is dealing with clients and partners. Sales skills are very important and it's something that I'm not very experienced in. I have to be unshakably confident in the service that I deliver and I need to transmit that confidence over to my clients and partners. Becoming more sure of myself is my goal moving forward. I am going to connect with more ambitious, like-minded people. This is a powerful one. I have underestimated the impact that the people around you have on your overall being. I am ready to go all-in. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Today is my 24th birthday. I don't like to make a big deal about the day, but I do think it's very important to reflect on the previous year and look ahead to the next. A lot has changed in my 23rd year. I established 5 LLCs and have been focused on building them up for my future. I grew personally and professionally, including working up the courage to resign from my job and go all-in on building my empire. I've learned that consistency is so vital. I'm constantly trying to improve on that. Just keep going and good things will happen. As I head into year 24, I want to turn up the heat. I'll have unlimited freedom and be able to pursue fulfillment and happiness every single day. I am going to share everything I learn and do with the world. I know I can provide value to people and I'm going stay Fueled By Progress. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
This is a tough topic for me. I go back and forth on it a lot. I'm kinda concerned that I am about to quit my job with having a full income replacement. However, I fully believe that this is the best time ever to do so. I have a lot of confidence in my abilities, but it is inconsistent at times. I'm going to make it. Don't let the voices in your head or the pessimists around you stop you from doing what you believe in deep down. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

FBP #37: Just Do It

2020-01-2520:21

A plan and a mindset to grow will keep you moving forward throughout your life. This will help more than you could ever imagine. Give it a shot and see where it takes you and how you start to feel. I am a real example of this. I am about to embark on a scary, yet rewarding journey as a young entrepreneur. I want to build my own empire and create my own happiness. I want to be the captain of my own ship. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
I never really believed it, but you truly are the average of the 5 people you are around the most. Because of this, I make it a priority to associate with people that push me to do better and become more every single day. You have to do what you love. If you are consistently doing things that you like to do, you won't want to do the other BS, like shopping, watching TV, etc. Find your fuel and change your life. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Don't make excuses when you have the ability to solve the problems you're faced with. You're only going to hurt yourself in the long run. I am a huge proponent of minimalism. I frequently look around my room and ask myself what I could live without. Then, I list any items that fit that mold on Facebook Marketplace. For me, it's a great way to downsize and make a littel extra cash. A couple of tips on Facebook Marketplace selling: Sould you use it? Yes, it's too simple not to try. Price your item higher than you think. Buyers will haggle with you. Reply quickly and DON'T WAIT! This has made me lose a sale many times. Move in on a potential buyer as soon as possible. Meet in a well-lit, public place, like a grocery store or police department online exchange zone. Double confirm your meeting plan. Be nice and give them a good buyer review. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Always be yourself. No matter where you're at: school, work, etc. I love getting to know people for who they really are and I try to always show my true colors to other people. By the same token, always trust yourself. When you feel something, don't ignore it. Take note of what you're feeling and try to diagnose why you feel that way. Then, make an educated decision on what you should do next and DO IT. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
As you go through life, you'll meet and intereact with a lot of people. Sometimes, you will disagree with what your partners, clients or friends have to say about a topic. These times, though they may be frustrating, will help you grow. The more you deal with people, the better you will become at dealing with people. Specifically, in business, don't sell yourself short based on other people's opinions. Be confident in the work that you do. You know what you are worth, don't let other people decide that for you. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Sign up for Robinhood here! My relationship with Tesla has been a roller coaster. I truly believe in the company and Elon Musk. The mission that they are on is world-changing in magnitude and just cool overall. I've been in and out of the stock a few different times and made a few bucks. I don't think anyone could have predicted this type of growth. I don't know what could have caused the stock price to double in such a short time. The media seems to have a lot to do with it, which is crazy to me. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
