Your routine means sweet f*ck all

I know entrepreneurs who get up two hours early every day to get shit done before the world interferes.

I know entrepreneurs who shut off their phones and Facebook for their scheduled midday “content writing time.”

I know entrepreneurs who have daily schedules, minutely defining when and how long they work on a new group course, polish social media posts, eat, and go for a walk.

You ask me all the time what a “real” entrepreneur’s day looks like. I always answer the same way:

Who is this “real” entrepreneur you speak of? And why do you give a shit how she spends her time?

YOU don’t need to follow someone else’s routine or rules.

YOU don’t need to arrange your desk the way Oprah does in order to make bank.

YOU don’t need to use trendy calendar software, have the perfect website or spend a fortune on glam photos.

YOU only need to DO WHAT YOU DO BEST – in the way only YOU can.

Understandably, some people need structure or discipline.

What we don’t need is someone else’s structure. How Tina Fey parts her curtains in the morning is irrelevant. That’s another stall tactic. Another way to say, ‘Oh, my desk, office, [insert bullshit excuse] isn’t ready yet. I can’t work today.’

Enough screwing around.

But don’t take my word for it. Below are thoughts from three wildly famous entrepreneurs on what got them there:

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” — Estée Lauder

“My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” — Oprah Winfrey

“My best successes came on the heels of failures.” — Barbara Corcoran

When someone asks about my daily routine, I quote Ferris Bueller. “You realize if we played by the rules, right now we’d be in gym?”

Fuck the rules.

Don’t know where to start? Stuck, stalled, uninspired?

Make sure you’re signed up for my four FREE masterclasses, designed to help you set up your business and mindset foundation right – so you can make an impact and make bank.

This is about YOU being YOU in every way.

We start May 1 and close it up May 4.

You’ll learn to say what you know you need to say, attract your right people, kill excuses, ditch sabotage, and say adios to the bullshit that prevents you from showing up as the badass you are.

Did I mention it’s FREE?

You will learn how to do what YOU KNOW you need to do, how to stop apologizing, hedging, waiting. You will just fucking do it.

I’m going to show you how to:
– put yourself first in life and business
– get – and stay – in the driver’s seat
– make money doing what you love
– be the expert, the authority, THE BOSS YOU’RE CRAVING TO BE

It doesn’t happen by accident. There are things you need to do every damn day to get – and stay – there. I’m going to show you how.

Do you want it some day? Or do you want to create it NOW?

Go sign up now.

We’re retiring the bullshit that says you can’t and learning how to say YES to ourselves.

Because that’s how a boss rolls.

See you inside.

It’s time to lead (for real)

Today marks the start of a 30-day series I created to help you become the industry leader and dominant force you say you want to be.

This is the #30daystorise series – a 30-day opportunity for you to actually walk your talk, rise up and claim the life and business you say you want.

For the next month, I’ll be sharing powerful tools to get your mind right, truly serve with heart and create an audience of raving fans.

The tips I am going to share are what I use every day to continuously grow, scale and serve millions (and make millions too).

None of what I will talk about includes systems, tactics or cookie-cutter BS.

In fact, I don’t want you to use my strategies. The whole point of being your own boss is doing things your way.

A few things to note:

  • There are no small moves here.
  • Nothing I share is optional.
  • It is what you must choose to do for yourself if you are going to be a true leader.
  • And you may want to create a folder in your inbox just for the gems I am about to drop.
  • If you haven’t yet, join my private Facebook community, Tune In. Turn On., where I will be LIVE to go in-depth with everything I’m sharing in the series.

Today, we start at square one: Environment is everything.

Tool #1: Ditch Negative Influences

Warren Buffett once told a 14-year-old what I consider to be the single best piece of advice on how to be successful:

“It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates 
whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.”

The people you surround yourself with are either helping you or hurting you. There is no in between.

Be ruthless about who and what gets your time and energy.

Most people don’t go that far.

“But they’re family.”
“It’s just a movie with old friends.”
“I deserve to relax.”

And then you wonder why you lack the requisite energy, focus and motivation to get shit done.

The truth is you must guard your energy with your life. Treat your time like the precious commodity that it is. Get rid of anything and everything that is not helping you to grow.

How to know if you are using this tool:

  • Who do you follow on social media?
  • How much TV do you watch a day, and what type?
  • Who do you hang out with, and are they of a similar mindset?

How to implement this tool:

  • Delete everyone on social media that doesn’t add value to your life. Unfollow, block or delete.
  • Ditch your cable or satellite.
  • Stop spending time with friends just because they are friends. You can love them from a distance. Right now, it’s time to get busy.

These are just a handful of things you need to do – right now.

In order to get good at something, to master something, you need to take time for it. Time that will allow you to contribute to the world in the way you say you want. Resolve to stop wasting hours on things that will not matter years from now.

If you think the above is too extreme, you aren’t playing to win.

But if you are all in, and want to find out how to create a bulletproof mindset that leads to success, growth and the life you want, then stay tuned.

This month-long email and blog series is about undiluted reality, powerful strategies and next level accountability.
