Do You Care Enough About Your Dream To Pursue It?

Published

on

“The fools in life want things fast and easy; money, success, attention. Boredom and fear is their greatest enemy.” – Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson

I’m sure at some point in your childhood you were told to “be yourself,” that “you’re unique,” and that you should “love yourself.” All of these sentiments are cliché blanket statements that we’re familiar with, yet, few of us actually practice any of these values or beliefs. Typically, the reason for this has to do with the foundations of our society and the constant rat race competition that we are in with one another.

As mentioned in last week’s article, our attitudes are powerful, as is their impact on us. With this in mind, it is very important that we not only think positively, but that we do so diligently with great discipline as well. Being positive for a day may be easy. Just as it’s easy to go to the gym for one day, or to motivate yourself to work towards your current goal for a while. What is hard is doing so day in and day out, even when you don’t feel like it. It’s typically in these moments that those who succeed and those who will fail are distinguished and separated.

This week’s video is brought to you by Absolute Motivation, entitled The Underdog. This particular video focuses on what it means to be dedicated and disciplined, as well as the difference between those that wish for instant success and those that work hard for it.

This week’s takeaway:
Between your goal and it’s achievement, lays discipline and dedication. Use both to drive yourself toward your dreams.

Three Ways to Turn Social Media Followers Into Paying Customers

Published

on

As presented by Jobber, in Colony Work Space, Katie Pearse, owner of The Maid Mentor, spoke to an audience about how she was able to convert her social media followers into paying customers.

With a background in marketing, Katie graduated and went on to start her own multi-million dollar cleaning company. After experiencing much success, especially with garnering hype for her company through social media, she switched to consulting to help others do the same.

Jobber, a multifaceted entrepreneur software company, holds many different workshops for their clients and interested people in the community to attend. Key influencers of their respective industries will come out to speak about their experiences.

After listening to Katie, here are the top three takeaways to note:

  1. It doesn’t matter which social media platform you use as long as you target your audience. Know who you are trying to reach and who you’re catering your content towards.
  2. Email lists are everything. According to Katie, email marketing is still 40% more effective than other forms of marketing. So if you’re going to dedicate your time towards one thing, this is it.
  3. Video is an emerging trend. Most social media platforms either started with, or have now made it possible for you to post content through video. Making it easier for customers to view and understand your product, more companies are trying to maximize on this opportunity.

If you’d like to learn more about what Katie shared, you can follow her on Facebook, or reach out to her on her website.

The Video That Forever Changed My Life

Published

on

“Some of you love sleep, more than you love success.” -Eric Thomas

One night, 5 years ago I was feeling in need of some inspiration. I was stuck in a rut and I didn’t know where I was headed or what I wanted from my life. In the late moments of the night, I took to my Facebook and posted a status, “in need of some motivation and inspiration.” It was more of a statement than a request in my mind, but a casual acquaintance of mine from high school shared a link in the comments section.

The video showcased an unknown athlete working out with what seemed to be a rather rigorous routine. What caught my attention more than the impressive work ethic that was displayed of the athlete, was the voice of the narrator. This was the first time I ever heard Eric Thomas speak, and his words would forever change my life.

In the video, Thomas tells a story of a young man who aspires for great things. In pursuit of his goals, the young man seeks out a guru to teach him how to be successful. In what begins as a rather odd circumstance and continues on to be a confusing lesson, the moral of the story is both profound and impactful:

This week’s takeaway:
Everyone of us has a dream, but not nearly enough of us want it bad enough. Only when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, will you be successful.
