Lately, people have been getting upset with me. Let me address this for a moment;
Many people think I’m intentionally, or maybe unintentionally, ignoring them. I’m writing them off. I don’t care about them anymore. We aren’t friends anymore. Well let me tell you what I can;
When you’re surrounded by a world that believes that degrees are everything, and if you don’t have one you’re going to be a failure, if you’re like me, you attack that blatant, ignorant theory head on.
What do I mean? I’m talking about milking every opportunity out of life I possibly can. I’m talking about helping people around me, most of them younger than me, grow their businesses so they don’t make the same mistakes I did.
I’m talking about creating brands and companies, and investment portfolios, and things only people with “degrees” are supposed to be able to do.
Well guess what? Here I am, no degree, and I run 3 successful completely separate businesses in 3 completely different industries.
So if anybody thinks I’m ignoring them, I’m not. I have to do this, for myself and my future and my family’s future and the future of the ones I hold close to me. These companies, they’re my babies. I’d do anything for them to grow, flourish, and succeed. Please understand that.
And for anybody reading this who’s starting a brand or a business, or a company, you should do the same.
I will not announce what the two new companies are until they’ve grown well, but nonetheless, everything I focus on grows because I collaborate and I never give up.
And if you don’t have a degree, it doesn’t mean you’re a loser. You’re not worthless. You are not a failure. You’re a free being, able to start anything at any time. And you can. And you WILL.
