Employee vs Entrepreneurs… How They Make Money

It’s an interesting thing in that when you’re an employee in
the 9-5 work world 8 to 9 times out of 10 you are paid for the
number of hours you put into the job, not what you're really worth.

This mindset unfortunately follows a lot of folks when they are looking to transition from the corporate world to the world of
entrepreneurship and this is why you see folks expecting to be
paid commensurate with the number of hours they put into
whichever business they are looking to build.


This type of thinking is in direct opposition of how things
actually work since the fact of the matter is that as
entrepreneurs we are paid according to the value that we bring the marketplace and not the hours we put in on a daily basis.the value you bring

That’s why it’s so important for the entrepreneur to work on
their self-development… developing not only their mindset but
also their skill sets on a daily basis.

Focus in on your Income Producing Activities (IPA’s) so that
you can knock them out as quickly as possible…

Pick up skills that enable you to leverage your time so that your
business can be growing daily…

There’s several of them to choose from:


- Video Marketing

- Blogging

- Solo Ads

Creating high converting funnels

Just to name a few….

Whichever one you choose make sure that you keep at that
particular skill set long enough for it to pay you… well.

Once you are actually making money with it… add another one to
the mix.

This is something I call Skill Stacking…

When you focus on developing yourself as a professional you can
quite literally write your own check.

Let’s get it,






Why Some People Take Massive Action And Others Don’t…

One of the things that has always fascinated me is the question:

“Why do some people make it and other don’t?”

Seriously… it’s something that has garnered serious attention from me because you can have two people with the same skill sets and potential and yet one creates an empire while the other one spends all day dreaming and posting about what “could be” if they only took action.

The impact of this question hit me on on a personal basis back at the end of December 2012. Up until that point my biggest month in Online Marketing had been $2,925 up which at first glance may seem to be pretty ok right?

Well… that really depends on which way you are looking at it since within 90 days from that point I was going to lose my severance pay that I had been receiving up to that point for being laid off from my 'corporate' job after 4.5 years.

You see $2,925 might be something in a little town in Idaho or somewhere else in the country but in Brooklyn, NY you just can’t survive or support a family with it.

With my back up against the wall my focus became extremely.. incredibly.. CRYSTAL CLEAR.. and I went to work.

The end result was that on October 10, 2013 I was capping off my first $10,000 month in this industry!

What was the difference that TRIPLED MY INCOME in a 90 day period of time when I could never break the $3,000 barrier before?

I could personally tell you… but than you wouldn’t benefit as much from discovering it yourself as you watch this training:

In my personal estimation this is one of the greatest videos ever made that deals with the Laws of Success and Personal Achievement.

I watch it at least once per month to remind me of what I need to do in order to get to where I want to go in life.

I can’t stress to you enough just how important this video is to your success.

Keep rockin,

There are a multitude of folks out there with cash flow scouring the internet looking for the best return on investment and what I have to share with you today will practically guarantee it.

What do you think could be considered to be the best return on investment? Some might say that 5% is pretty hot considering today’s economy while other more aggressive investors wouldn’t even consider anything that doesn’t put a minimum of 30%-50% back into their pockets.

Then there are the elite level investors that dictate their investment activities to produce a minimum of 100% returns.

What if I told you that there was one way to practically guarantee a return on investment to the tune of multiple thousands of percent?

The Investment Which Has Paid Me Multiple Thousands of Percent

To understand this particular investment you have to consider that before I made it I spent multiple years lost in a sea of wasted time and energy looking for the secrets on how to make money online and actually create freedom in my life.

I don’t know if this is something you can relate to or not but I can remember the sleepless nights going over website after website looking for the internet marketing training that would allow me to create freedom producing income online and finally exit the corporate rat race.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that I would quite literally fall asleep with my head on the keyboard and wake up at 4:00 am with drool running down the side of my mouth looking like someone had just pressed my face with a waffle iron.

Why would I do it?

It’s simple really… I was tired… tired of the corporate politics.. tired of the office gossip environment.. tired of someone else telling me when I could go to the bathroom.. telling me how much I was worth.. dictating when I went to bed.. when I woke up..

Tired of not having the money to take a vacation.. to buy nice things for the woman that I love.. tired of not beaing able to afford a new vehicle instead of having to drive that beat up p.o.s with the faded out bumper that I was stuck in.

Most of all I was tired of being tired…

I knew there was something more to life…

How did I go from being broke, busted, and disgusted to earning a six figure income from home? How did I turn the tables from having spent years failing within my home business journey?

From hitting up every poor soul who happened to be near at the gas station.. at the grocery store.. in the mall parking lot…


I decided to invest in myself and pick up what I have come to believe is the world’s best education on how to create a Top Producer’s lifestyle.

I went from having made no money in my first two years of network marketing to creating a six figure income not once… but twice in two separate companies.


The decision to investment in myself has quite literally changed the course of my life and it can do the same for you.

Whether you have been playing at a high level or if you have just been barely getting by… when you have access to the world’s greatest transformation education your business and your life will explode with new growth.

How to Get Motivated to Get Out of That Slump Now...

It happens to us all, even the most motivated of us — you, me, Tony Robbins — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes we get into such a slump that even thinking about making positive changes seems too difficult.

But it’s not hopeless: with some small steps, baby ones in fact, you can get started down the road to a positive change.

Yea, yea, I know, it seems impossible at times. You don’t feel like doing anything. I’ve been there, and in fact I still feel that way from time to time. You’re not alone. But I’ve learned a few simple ways to break out of a slump, and we’ll take a look at those today.

When I fall out of exercise, due to illness or injury or disruption from things going on in my life, it’s hard to get started again. I don’t even feel like thinking about it, sometimes. But I’ve always found a way to break out of that slump, and here are some things I’ve learned that have helped:


  1. One Goal. Whenever I’ve been in a slump, I’ve discovered that it’s often because I have too much going on in my life. I’m trying to do too much. And it saps my energy and motivation. It’s probably the most common mistake that people make: they try to take on too much, try to accomplish too many goals at once. You cannot maintain energy and focus (the two most important things in accomplishing a goal) if you are trying to do two or more goals at once. It’s not possible — I’ve tried it many times. You have to choose one goal, for now, and focus on it completely. I know, that’s hard. Still, I speak from experience. You can always do your other goals when you’ve accomplished your One Goal.
  2. Find inspiration. Inspiration, for me, comes from others who have achieved what I want to achieve, or who are currently doing it. I read other blogs, books, magazines. I Google my goal, and read success stories. Zen Habits is just one place for inspiration, not only from me but from many readers who have achieved amazing things.
  3. Get excited. This sounds obvious, but most people don’t think about it much: if you want to break out of a slump, get yourself excited about a goal. But how can you do that when you don’t feel motivated? Well, it starts with inspiration from others (see above), but you have to take that excitement and build on it. For me, I’ve learned that by talking to my wife about it, and to others, and reading as much about it as possible, and visualizing what it would be like to be successful (seeing the benefits of the goal in my head), I get excited about a goal. Once I’ve done that, it’s just a matter of carrying that energy forward and keeping it going.
  4. Build anticipation. This will sound hard, and many people will skip this tip. But it really works. It helped me quit smoking after many failed attempts. If you find inspiration and want to do a goal, don’t start right away. Many of us will get excited and want to start today. That’s a mistake. Set a date in the future — a week or two, or even a month — and make that your Start Date. Mark it on the calendar. Get excited about that date. Make it the most important date in your life. In the meantime, start writing out a plan. And do some of the steps below. Because by delaying your start, you are building anticipation, and increasing your focus and energy for your goal.
  5. Post your goal. Print out your goal in big words. Make your goal just a few words long, like a mantra (“Exercise 15 mins. Daily”), and post it up on your wall or refrigerator. Post it at home and work. Put it on your computer desktop. You want to have big reminders about your goal, to keep your focus and keep your excitement going. A picture of your goal (like a model with sexy abs, for example) also helps.
  6. Commit publicly. None of us likes to look bad in front of others. We will go the extra mile to do something we’ve said publicly. For example, when I wanted to run my first marathon, I started writing a column about it in my local daily newspaper. The entire island of Guam (pop. 160K) knew about my goal. I couldn’t back down, and even though my motivation came and went, I stuck with it and completed it. Now, you don’t have to commit to your goal in your daily newspaper, but you can do it with friends and family and co-workers, and you can do it on your blog if you have one. And hold yourself accountable — don’t just commit once, but commit to giving progress updates to everyone every week or so.
  7. Think about it daily. If you think about your goal every day, it is much more likely to become true. To this end, posting the goal on your wall or computer desktop (as mentioned above) helps a lot. Sending yourself daily reminders also helps. And if you can commit to doing one small thing to further your goal (even just 5 minutes) every single day, your goal will almost certainly come true.
  8. Get support. It’s hard to accomplish something alone. When I decided to run my marathon, I had the help of friends and family, and I had a great running community on Guam who encouraged me at 5K races and did long runs with me. When I decided to quit smoking, I joined an online forum and that helped tremendously. And of course, my wife Eva helped every step of the way. I couldn’t have done these goals without her, or without the others who supported me. Find your support network, either in the real world or online, or both.
  9. Realize that there’s ups and downs. Motivation is not a constant thing that is always there for you. It comes and goes, and comes and goes again, like the tide. But realize that while it may go away, it doesn’t do so permanently. It will come back. Just stick it out and wait for that motivation to come back. In the meantime, read about your goal (see below), ask for help (see below), and do some of the other things listed here until your motivation comes back.
  10. Stick with it. Whatever you do, don’t give up. Even if you aren’t feeling any motivation today, or this week, don’t give up. Again, that motivation will come back. Think of your goal as a long journey, and your slump is just a little bump in the road. You can’t give up with every little bump. Stay with it for the long term, ride out the ebbs and surf on the flows, and you’ll get there.
  11. Start small. Really small. If you are having a hard time getting started, it may be because you’re thinking too big. If you want to exercise, for example, you may be thinking that you have to do these intense workouts 5 days a week. No — instead, do small, tiny, baby steps. Just do 2 minutes of exercise. I know, that sounds wimpy. But it works. Commit to 2 minutes of exercise for one week. You may want to do more, but just stick to 2 minutes. It’s so easy, you can’t fail. Do it at the same time, every day. Just some crunches, 2 pushups, and some jogging in place. Once you’ve done 2 minutes a day for a week, increase it to 5, and stick with that for a week. In a month, you’ll be doing 15-20. Want to wake up early? Don’t think about waking at 5 a.m. Instead, think about waking 10 minutes earlier for a week. That’s all. Once you’ve done that, wake 10 minutes earlier than that. Baby steps.
  12. Build on small successes. Again, if you start small for a week, you’re going to be successful. You can’t fail if you start with something ridiculously easy. Who can’t exercise for 2 minutes? (If that’s you, I apologize.) And you’ll feel successful, and good about yourself. Take that successful feeling and build on it, with another baby step. Add 2-3 minutes to your exercise routine, for example. With each step (and each step should last about a week), you will feel even more successful. Make each step really, really small, and you won’t fail. After a couple of months, your tiny steps will add up to a lot of progress and a lot of success.
  13. Read about it daily. When I lose motivation, I just read a book or blog about my goal. It inspires me and reinvigorates me. For some reason, reading helps motivate and focus you on whatever you’re reading about. So read about your goal every day, if you can, especially when you’re not feeling motivated.
  14. Call for help when your motivation decreases. Having trouble? Ask for help. Email me. Join an online forum. Get a partner to join you. Call your mom. It doesn’t matter who, just tell them your problems, and talking about it will help. Ask them for advice. Ask them to help you overcome your slump. It works.
  15. Think about the benefits, not the difficulties. One common problem is that we think about how hard something is. Exercise sounds so hard! Just thinking about it makes you tired. But instead of thinking about how hard something is, think about what you will get out of it. For example, instead of thinking about how tiring exercise can be, focus on how good you’ll feel when you’re done, and how you’ll be healthier and slimmer over the long run. The benefits of something will help energize you.
  16. Squash negative thoughts; replace them with positive ones. Along those lines, it’s important to start monitoring your thoughts. Recognize negative self-talk, which is really what’s causing your slump. Just spend a few days becoming aware of every negative thought. Then, after a few days, try squashing those negative thoughts like a bug, and then replacing them with a corresponding positive thought. Squash, “This is too hard!” and replace it with, “I can do this! If that wimp Leo can do it, so can I!” It sounds corny, but it works. Really

Are You Guilty Of Procrastination?

If you’ve found yourself putting off important tasks over and over again, you’re not alone. In fact, many people procrastinate to some degree – but some are so chronically affected by procrastination that it stops them fulfilling their potential and disrupts their careers.

The key to controlling this destructive habit is to recognize when you start procrastinating, understand why it happens (even to the best of us), and take active steps to manage your time and outcomes better.

What is Procrastination?

In a nutshell, you procrastinate when you put off things that you should be focusing on right now, usually in favor of doing something that is more enjoyable or that you’re more comfortable doing.

According to psychologist Professor Clarry Lay, a prominent writer on procrastination, procrastination occurs when there’s “a temporal gap between intended behavior and enacted behavior.” That is, procrastination is occurring when there’s a significant time period between when people intend to do a job, and when they actually do it.


How to Overcome Procrastination



Follow these steps to deal with and control procrastination:


Step 1: Recognize That You're Procrastinating

If you're honest with yourself, you probably know when you're procrastinating. But to be sure, take our Are You a Procrastinator?   self test.

Here are some useful indicators that will help you know when you’re procrastinating:

  • Filling your day with low priority tasks from your To Do List.
  • Reading e-mails several times without starting work on them or deciding what you’re going to do with them.
  • Sitting down to start a high-priority task, and almost immediately going off to make a cup of coffee.
  • Leaving an item on your To Do list for a long time, even though you know it's important.
  • Regularly saying "Yes" to unimportant tasks that others ask you to do, and filling your time with these instead of getting on with the important tasks already on your list.
  • Waiting for the “right mood” or the “right time” to tackle the important task at hand.


Putting off an unimportant task isn't necessarily procrastination: it may just be good prioritization!

Putting off an important task for a short period because you’re feeling particularly tired isn’t necessarily procrastination either, so long as you don’t delay starting the task for more than a day or so, and this is only an occasional event. If you have a genuine good reason for rescheduling something important, then you’re not necessarily procrastinating. But if you’re simply “making an excuse” because you really just don’t want to do it, then you are.

In his 1986 article “At Last, My Research Article on Procrastination”, published in the Journal of Research on Personality, Lay noted that procrastinatory behavior is independent of need for achievement, energy, or self-esteem. In other words, you may be a procrastinator even if you’re confident in your own abilities, energetic, and enjoy achieving things.


Step 2: Work Out WHY You're Procrastinating

Why you procrastinate can depend on both you and the task. But it's important to understand which of the two is relevant in a given situation, so that you can select the best approach for overcoming your reluctance to get going.

One reason for procrastination is that people find a particular job unpleasant, and try to avoid it because of that. Most jobs have unpleasant or boring aspects to them, and often the best way of dealing with these is to get them over and done with quickly, so that you can focus on the more enjoyable aspects of the job.

Another cause is that people are disorganized. Organized people manage to fend of the temptation to procrastinate, because they will have things like prioritized to-do lists   and schedules   which emphasize how important the piece work is, and identify precisely when it’s due. They’ll also have planned how long a task will take to do, and will have worked back from that point to identify when they need to get started in order to avoid it being late. Organized people are also better placed to avoid procrastination, because they know how to break the work down into manageable “next steps”.

Even if you’re organized, you can feel overwhelmed by the task. You may doubt that you have the skills or resources you think you need, so you seek comfort in doing tasks you know you're capable of completing. Unfortunately, the big task isn't going to go away – truly important tasks rarely do. You may also fear success as much as failure. For example, you may think that success will lead to you being swamped with more requests to do this type of task, or that you’ll be pushed to take on things that you feel are beyond you.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think "I don't have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won't do it at all."

One final major cause of procrastination is having underdeveloped decision-making skills. If you simply can’t decide what to do, you’re likely to put off taking action in case you do the wrong thing.


Step 3: Adopt Anti-Procrastination Strategies

Procrastination is a habit – a deeply ingrained pattern of behavior. That means that you won’t just break it overnight. Habits only stop being habits when you have persistently stopped practising them, so use as many approaches as possible to maximize your chances of beating procrastination. Some tips will work better for some people than for others, and for some tasks than others. And, sometimes, you may simply need to try a fresh approach to beat the “procrastination peril”!

These general tips will help motivate you to get moving:

  • Make up your own rewards. For example, promise yourself a piece of tasty flapjack at lunchtime if you've completed a certain task. And make sure you notice how good it feels to finish things!


  • Ask someone else to check up on you. Peer pressure works! This is the principle behind slimming and other self-help groups, and it is widely recognized as a highly effective approach.


  • Identify the unpleasant consequences of NOT doing the task.


  • Work out the cost of your time   to your employer. As your employers are paying you to do the things that they think are important, you're not delivering value for money if you're not doing those things. Shame yourself into getting going!

If you're pocrastinating because you're disorganized, here's how to get organized!

  • Keep a To-Do list   so that you can’t “conveniently” forget about unpleasant or overwhelming tasks.


  • Use an Urgent/Important Matrix   to help prioritize your to-do list so that you can’t try to kid yourself that it would be acceptable to put off doing something on the grounds that it’s unimportant, or that you have many urgent things which ought to be done first when, in reality, you’re procrastinating.


  • Become a master of scheduling   and project planning, so that you know when to start those all-important projects.


  • Set yourself time-bound goals  : that way, you’ll have no time for procrastination!


  • Focus on one task at a time.


If you're putting off starting a project because you find it overwhelming, you need to take a different approach. Here are some tips:

  • Break the project into a set of smaller, more manageable tasks. You may find it helpful to create an action plan  .


  • Start with some quick, small tasks if you can, even if these aren't the logical first actions. You'll feel that you're achieving things, and so perhaps the whole project won't be so overwhelming after all.

If you’re procrastinating because you find the task unpleasant:

  • Many procrastinators overestimate the unpleasantness of a task. So give it a try! You may find that it’s not as bad as you thought!


  • Hold the unpleasant consequences of not doing the work at the front of your mind.


  • Reward yourself for doing the task.

Finally, if you’re procrastinating because you can’t decide what action to take, and are putting off making a decision because you’re nervous about making the wrong choice, see our decision-making section. This teaches a range of powerful and effective decision-making techniques.

Remember: the longer you can spend without procrastinating, the greater your chances of breaking this destructive habit for good!


Key Points

To have a good chance of conquering procrastination, you need to spot straight away that you're doing it. Then, you need to identify why you're procrastinating and taken appropriate steps to overcome the block.
