That’s the simple secret. People that move get results.
He wanted to get into web design, so I gave him some resources and told him to do it for free to build experience.
- Week after week, I get questions on business, entrepreneurship, how to get unstuck.
- Week after week, I give and help.
- Week after week, few take action.
People get stuck in complacency. They only romanticize about greatness, but inside have settled for mediocrity.
Not this kid. He jumped into design and started doing sites for free. After a year+ of experience, he’s graduating that design experience and moving into SEO.
Told him to do the same thing and give website audits for free. Message businesses he’s familiar with in his home town, do a Loom video offering advice on their site, and DON’T pitch them. Give.
That will allow him to build experience, while also getting interest from local businesses.
Not even a week later, he sent me a sample Loom. “How’d I do. Give me feedback.”
Who does that?
- Take action
- Ask how to improve
Gave him feedback, and just days later he already took the strategy to market and got his first lead.
