I really can’t understand why some people will just decide to be what I will term a fool.
See, forget my sharp mouth or anything.
It’s just plain fact.
Agreed you just found yourself in my community which is fine.
It’s always hard to adjust to new environments which is also understandable.
But there’s a common-sense rule that is supposed to tell you to relax and observe what’s going on.
Just chill out and see what’s happening in this community.
This was what we did then in a new school.
We will chill out and check for the right circle of friends and others.
But no, some people will prefer to bring their big ass head and start venting their frustrations on you.
I am not Nigeria and you can’t vent frustration on me.
Plain and simple.
And yeah, no vex.
This message isn’t yours.
Just me venting out my frustration too because it’s coming from a guy that just joined this community.
Even though I blocked his ass and even banned him for life from my email list.
I still had to let it out to you so you can understand perfectly.
And don’t worry, I won’t tell you what he did.
That said, this morning…
I was scrolling through the loads of contact I have to save and I knew I am in another deep shit.
But while doing that, I came across a message from someone 👇
And I deem it fit to answer him because I love the question.
So here goes:
Firstly, you need to know that starting any business comes with various uncertainties.
In fact, there’s a high tendency that the business you want to borrow for won’t succeed.
It’s not a curse and don’t bring that Nigerian prayer mentality here.
It’s just the fact.
At least, 9 out of your 10 businesses will fail.
So I am not cursing you, just facing the truth head-on.
And if that business fails, how do you plan to pay back?
By borrowing again?
My advice will be…
Don’t borrow shit as a startup.
Don’t do it yet unless you have validated your market so well.
And if I talk about validation, I mean people are already rushing you so well and you need more money for inventories and others.
But if not, save your way into that business.
Secondly, I am a strong believer in learning high-income skills first before starting any business.
And you then use the proceeds and income from the high-income skill to fund that business.
It’s simple really.
And yeah, I know you don’t have the startup capital to even take a high-income skill course.
But I feel this should not hinder you even though it might be slower.
And here’s what I did during my own time:
I knew copywriting is my forte and I want to learn this shit.
But when I asked my mentor how much is his mentorship fee.
I heard something that shook my heart.
I knew I don’t need a course or anything.
I want mentorship.
So I went back to YouTube and Google to soak up everything copywriting I can see.
Stefan Georgi channel
Dan Lok (I don’t like this man)
And many others.
I followed them religiously and I started getting insights into this our thing.
I implemented in full throttle and my copy skills are changing.
But I never saw a significant change until I pay for mentorship though.
But you should observe something.
I got started even with nothing.
And that’s exactly what I want you to do too.
If you don’t have the financial capability to take any course or mentorship right now.
Then go soak up free knowledge while you save for that course.
You are sha buying data?
You are eating too?
So save out of those little things to get the course that will help your life.
It’s honestly that simple…
I mean Nobody is coming to save you or give you a free course.
Earn it my guy.
And I think the bottom line is glaring.
Don’t borrow money to start any shit.
Learn high-income skills first.
Soak up free knowledge.
Save your way to buying that course.
And you are good to go.
