How To Start The Business Of Your Dreams

WHAT IS THIS EPISODE ABOUT?

In this episode, I unveil “Vivid New Media” and my shift to the corporate consulting world. I encourage people to chase their dreams and show them I am chasing mine!. I will also unveil my plans and shifts for 2019, and why I choose them.

WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?

This project has been more than 4 months in the making and that whole time myself and my partner, Lauren Gordon, have had to keep this a secret. It hasn’t been easy and I’ve hinted at it several times. If you follow me closely, you might have started to get the feeling something big was about to happen in 2019 for me.

That feeling would have been correct.

EPISODE TRANSCRIPT:

In this episode, I actually want to show you how to start a business. Not because I’m giving you advice on how to start a business, but because I’m actually doing it right now in real time. I’m actually building a seven-figure company from the ground up and you’re going to be able to watch that and I want to share this journey with you. I just announced this yesterday that this is going to be happening and that we’re going to be documenting this and the way that we are, and it’s very, very exciting. So let’s dive into this because can be super, super fun.

00:34 You are now entering a new paradigm. So, here was my issue. I wonder to find the answers to life’s biggest questions. Things like how do I become happy and live with purpose? How do I make more money doing what I love and what does it mean to be truly successful in all areas of life? My name is Josh Forti @joshforti on Instagram and I ask life’s biggest questions and share the answers with you. My goal is to help you find purpose, happiness, and open your mind to new realms of possibility by helping you think differently about everything you do know and understand on this podcast. We think different. We dream bigger and we live in a world without minutes. This is a new paradigm. Welcome to the think different theory.

01:17 What’s up guys? Welcome back to another episode of The Think Different Theory. My name is Josh and I am so excited. All right. I am so excited about this episode because I finally get to tell you about something that I have been working on for the last almost four months, like three and a half months. So far a behind the scenes that I haven’t been able to kind of. I haven’t really been able to unveil, but it’s interesting because when I tell you about it, it’s going to be super, super cool. But this episode specifically, if we’re going to be talking about how to build your dream business, alright, how to build your dream business, not just a company like the business of your dreams. That is what I want to talk about here today, and you might be like, well, Josh, that’s known, that’s a strategy.

01:58 How do you know how to build a business of my dreams? Here’s what I’m going to tell you in, in, in, in this episode, I’m going to be unveiling something that we’ve been working on for a very long time. I’m not trying to sell you anything. Okay? But this is what I’m doing in my own life. And he goes right now, as of today, actually, as of yesterday when we announced this, this is what I’m actually doing. And so, uh, for those of you that don’t know, I’m in the entrepreneurship space. I grew up on a farm from ages 11 to ages like 21 before I moved out. And so, um, I, you know, grew up working really hard. Uh, I worked for, you know, 10, $12 an hour, Baling Hay, learn the values of hard work. But then once I graduated high school, I tried to start my own company.

02:37 The first company I tried to start, um, was a farming company with a business partner of mine. And that failed, that failed miserably because of, not because we were actually doing a bad job, but because one day after we had been in business for almost a year I think, and we were doing pretty well. We had client work, we were Baling Hay, we were doing everything. And then one day I literally woke up and went over to the farm where it was at, like where we kept all of our equipment or whatever and all the equipment was gone and my business partner informed me that his wife divorced him and sold all the equipment, all this stuff. And we didn’t have any like legal paperwork and stuff in place. So we didn’t know what we were doing. And uh, we lost it all. Suddenly my first business. And then I went and I tried some other smaller businesses that just didn’t fit, that failed, it just didn’t make it.

03:21 And then I built a business with a business partner and Instagram agency ended up selling that company. And um, then I started a second company that did very, very well. In fact, this, the company that I’m currently doing up until this day started a third company that was a software company just sold that I’m back in at the end of 2018 and now I’m moving on to this company and I’ve learned so many different things in the process of this and what are the questions that I get asked all the time. People tell me all the time, they’re like, Josh, like how do I start a company? How do I start a business? How do I go and get clients? How to get people to pay me? How do I go and live the life of my dreams per say? Right? And that’s what I want to talk to you about today because today I get to announce to you here on this podcast something that, that I haven’t told anybody about for the last three and a half months and I’ve been working on it and so I want to give a little bit of context to this.

04:10 Okay. I’m actually. Let me start by saying this. I’m starting a company. I’m starting a company with my business partner, Lauren Gordon, and she and I together are starting a consulting company and is going to be the business of our dreams and I want to, I want to preface that by saying and kind of like giving you context and background to how this came about, right? Because I’ve built multiple different businesses. Some of them have failed miserably. Some of them I had a positive exit when I sold some of them done very well. Now I’m onto this one and I’m very excited about this because this, I’ve learned so much and now I get to share this wisdom that I’ve learned, these experiences that I’ve learned to you now here to kind of lead you on this journey to help you go and identify how to actually go start the business of your dreams as well.

04:56 Alright, so that’s kind of the context here before we dive into the actual story of what happened. So, uh, just to recap, up until this point really quick. Um, my business partner and I are starting this company as a consulting company. I’ve built several different companies in the past and learned a lot and we just unveiled this company that we’re building here, uh, yesterday, yesterday on Monday, you’re listening to this podcast who, I don’t know when you’re listening to it, but this was released on a Tuesday, so the day before, and we’re documenting our whole journey basically online, more or less like we’re going to be sharing our wins and our losses with you online as we go about this whole thing and just really don’t want to say building it publicly, but more just like building it and showing you what it actually takes to be able to go do this.

05:39 And I’m very, very excited about that. So, uh, about four months ago, my, one of my very good friends, her name is Lauren Gordon, she calls me up and um, lauren, excuse me, I’m Lauren and I sell to a very similar audience. Now we don’t, we don’t actually sell the same product, but our audience is very much overlap. She’s a little bit more like, has a little bit more females in our audience than I do have a little bit more. You know, guys, I’m, that’s just, you know, typical, but we sell to an audience that has a lot of the same desires and is in the same spot, like the same boat, uh, in their business or in their life. Right. And so she, she calls me up and she had just had a baby and she’s like, Josh, I don’t know what the next steps are in my business.

06:24 Like, I don’t know, I feel like I feel like there needs to be the next step. I feel like there’s got to be that kind of that next, that next thing that I’m moving on to that I’m learning that I’m developing, that I’m growing but I don’t know what it is. And I was having these thoughts around the exact same time too. In fact, I was talking with Lee or talking to Leah about it and I was like, you know, trying to figure out what those next steps are. I’m trying to figure out the direction that we want to go if we want to do this or do that. We just couldn’t really figure out what that next step was. And so we just knew, we knew at the time as, as, as Lauren and I was talking, we’re like, what, what is that next step?

06:56 Like, what, what, what do we want, what are we even going to do? And that might’ve been the end of the conversation, but we hung up the phone that day and about two and a half weeks later, probably not even that long, maybe like two weeks later Lauren calls me back up and she’s like, Josh, you know, I really sat down and I thought about our last conversation. I said I did too. And we both really decided to kind of look into what is the next step that we could potentially go into if we wanted to. And she came to me and she said, Josh, did you know that there is a massive increase of people that are willing to pay high ticket for our sales in the corporate world, in the real company world, right? Not the startups, not the six and seven figure entrepreneurs, but like the eight figure nine figure, the [inaudible] figure, even the 10 figure business world.

07:47 They are hiring independent consultants to come in and teach the skills that we have and I’m like really? Like how much? Like how much are they paying? Like what, what kind of skills are they looking for? Like what does it look like? She said there’s gonna be some $385,000,000,000 into this space. Hiring people that have the skillsets that you and I have. I was like, well this is interesting. And I said, so there are two ways to look at this, right? There are two ways to kind of look at going into this space. One of them and we have to be careful of is hey, is the old space just dissed the social media space and, and stopped teaching it and just go get rich off of, you know, tapping into corporate budgets that are spending over a billion dollars a day in 2019. And I said I don’t really want to do that.

08:33 I don’t really have a desire just to pack up shop, quit what I was doing. Like I love what I’m doing. I really like serving my clients. I really like serving my customers. I love this space. I love being authentic. I love being myself. I don’t want to be just some corporate person that just goes and works for corporate, but then the other angle we looked at this from and did, we said think about this though, the corporate space is slow, but it’s moving towards the digital. It’s moving towards the social media world and the social media space and the social media space is getting more and more saturated right now with startup entrepreneurs and gurus teaching everybody how to get rich when they’re not ready to themselves and just all sorts of spammy stuff and somewhere in the middle they’re going to meet and guess what?

09:15 The corporate world needs people like us to actually go and pay into higher and there’s a huge market there and there’s a big, huge lack of quality people that know what they’re doing in that space. And I said if we went into that space, so we partnered up and we really started to learn about this and we started to sign $25,000 clients, $50,000 clients, $100,000 clients and so on and so forth. We will not only prove to ourselves that we could do it, but we would also show our audience that is possible. And if we learned that entire process and we were able to share that with them along the way and they weren’t able to see what we did that would be able to help so many people. And then if after you were done in six months or a year, two years, five years, however long that is, you know, if we wanted to do courses or we wanted to, you know, teach people that do what we were doing, we would actually be really, really good at it.

10:02 We would have done it ourselves for two years, three years, five years. We’d have made hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars potentially with these people and spent, you know, big time budgets and been able to teach these corporate companies what skills we have and how they can apply them to their business. And so I thought about this. I was like, this is an amazing opportunity. This is the next step. This is the next step in our business as far as everybody else out there is, you know, we feel a lot of gurus right now are just selling courses and there’s nothing wrong with selling courses. I’m not bashing on the core sellers. In fact, I learned a lot of what I learned and know now through courses, but we also believe that you have to be at the cutting edge and I believe that you have to do before you teach and that you got to constantly be refining your skills.

10:45 And so about three months ago, Lauren and I decided that this was the next direction, the next step for both of our companies. And we decided, well, why wouldn’t we just partner up? Why wouldn’t we go into this together? You know, two is better than one in going into this world of the unknown per se, and that’s really what this is for us guys. Like I have no idea what the corporate world is. I have no idea what that really looks like. I mean, I have a little bit of experience selling insurance back in my sales days, but other than that, like I don’t like this is new to me. This is a new thing. It’s scary. It’s the unknown. And I see a lot of people in my life right now. They come up to me and they’re like, Josh, I want to start a business, right?

11:22 But, I’m scared. I don’t know what to do. You know, I don’t know what those steps are. I like, I might be, I have a skill if I have a passion, but I don’t know what those next things are and it’s scary and I’m scared to leave my stable, you know, nine to five job that’s making me 50, 60, or even $100,000 a year. And here I’m here to tell you guys like that’s a real fear. I get that I’m walking away from, you know, Lauren and I combined with our businesses, did well over half a million dollars last year, right in business. So we’re walking away from, or no walking away from necessarily, but like we’re, we’re taking a step back from a business that’s a half a million dollar a year business to go chase a bigger dream and we announced today, I’ll link it below, but we announced a really cool.

12:03 We’re kind of shutting down our current programs. We’re not like we’re not pushing them anymore or selling their heart anymore or we’re. We’re taking what we have right now because Lauren and I feel very, very confident that what we’ve done and what we’ve been able to teach and the courses that we have put in place are the best of the best of what we know. We really feel like if, if someone were to go through any of our courses individually, if they were to go through and they were to like follow through with it, they would learn very, very valuable skills because these are the exact skills that we learn and know today. And these are the skills that we’re taking into the corporate world. These are the skills that we’re going in there and we’re, we’re selling these exact skills at the next highest level, but running a course and, and running a coaching program that takes work that takes a lot of time.

12:46 And if there’s one thing that I’ve learned in business over the last four businesses that I’ve started is that focus is absolutely critical for success. You’ve got to focus and so we announced that we’re making the shift over. We’re doing one final sale of our courses and we’ve combined all three of our courses together because they’ve essentially like remaster them and redid them so that they fit together perfectly. And that’s what we’ve been working on for the last several months so that anyone that buys into this package has the complete skillset of both lauren and my skills to be able to learn these and then be able to follow in our footsteps of what we’re doing to go sell at this higher level. If you want to learn how to build a magnetic personal brand that’s in there, if you want to learn how to grow an audience on social media that’s in there, you know, you want to learn how to sell high ticket with stories.

13:30 Those things are in there. That’s. So we took this and we took this information, we packaged it up and we’re like, okay, now that we’re here, we’re leaving that we’re leaving a half, a million dollar a year business to go continue to be on the cutting edge to further our skills. And we sat back and we thought about this and we’re like, okay, we’re about to build a brand new business. What do we want out of this business? And I think this is a very, very important question to ask. Okay, a very important question to ask yourself. Most people go into business to make money. Most people are chasing half a million dollars, million dollars. I want to get to six figures. I want to get to a $500,000. I want to go to a million dollars. I want to get to $5,000,000, $10,000,000, $12,000,000, whatever that dollar number is, and here’s the thing.

14:15 When you build a business whose vision and benchmarks and goals are based on a dollar amount, you’re building a business that’s going to make you depressed. You’re building a business that you’re probably not going to be very fulfilled by your building a business that you, that that’s chasing money rather than a bigger purpose. And so lauren and I really sat down and we said, what is it that we want? What is it that we want out of this business? Why are we going into business here? And so we wrote down our morals and we wrote down what we stood for and what we wanted. And one of the biggest things that Lauren and I said right away is the  number one thing was we wanted to build this business in such a way that we could remove ourselves from the process and still have freedom to live our lives and have this business run on autopilot with other consultants and other people that we’ve hired and building teams.

15:03 That’s a very core, a very, very core principle that we stand on and one of our very big goals is that we want to build the systems in place. We want to have the departments and the people and hire the right talent to where this business continues to grow. Even if we’re not in, in working on it on a daily basis, we will be, but we want to be able to take a step back, go on a month long vacation, and we really want to be able to return to teaching again someday because both Lauren and I get very, very fulfilled by teaching and by coaching. Right. Coaching other entrepreneurs up into this and if we’re so tied into this consulting business that we never are able to remove ourselves from it. We’re never going to be able to actually go and make the world a better place by helping other entrepreneurs.

15:45 And that’s very, very important to us. And so we wrote that down and we’re like, that’s. That’s one goal that we definitely have. Another goal is we want to be able to help and like donate a certain amount of our time and, and, and resources to, you know, different charity events and things that we, we want to support. All right. That’s another very important thing for us. Uh, another very important thing is we want to focus on hiring the right talent and the right people and regardless of how much it costs, we want to make sure that we’re hiring the right people and paying them and create a, praying them what they’re worth and creating an environment that people want to work for us creating a spot where people like you don’t want to work at facebook, they want to work at apple or want to work at Google.

16:26 Right? We want to create that environment in our company where it’s sought after we’re, we’re a community. We’re, we’re a team that people want to be a part of because our vision is so much bigger and so much greater than us. And then they’ve just money. And I see so many companies out there, especially in the social media space that are like, we made a million dollars, now we’re going to have 10 million right now. We’re going to this. But they don’t talk about the culture. They don’t talk about hiring the right people, they don’t talk about, you know, the things that are in place. And that’s very, very important to us. And so what you have to understand is when you want to build the business of your dreams, alright, when you want to build that, you have to understand and ask yourself the question of what is it that I’m going into business for?

17:05 What, what is this going to serve? Why am I doing this? Instead of going into a nine to five, why am I doing this? Instead of going to college, getting a degree and working my way up the corporate chain because you can make hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars being a lawyer, being a doctor or you know, working in corporate America. So there’s got to be a difference because building a business is hard. So I’ve got to ask yourself that question and for us it’s being able to remove ourselves from the process, being able to create this thing that’s bigger than ourselves, being able to create this environment to be able to make the world a better place and to use the knowledge and the information that we acquire and learn through this whole process to make the world a better place, to give back and to serve and to better our lives, the lives of those around us.

17:50 Right? So that’s the first question that you have to ask yourself, I think is very important. The second thing that you have to realize when you’re going into a business, and I’m going to, I’m kind of getting more into like the step by step of how to build your business. I have like three core points that you really need to ask yourself and realize is first off, why are you going into business? What are your core values? Not a single one. And this is important, not a single. One of my goals this year is a financial goal to start with. And what I mean by that is I have an amount of money that I would like to make this year, but that money or that, that goal was not like, I want to make a million bucks this year. That sounds cool. No, I wrote down benchmarks in my business pillars in my business that I want to get to.

18:32 And I said, I want to get there. How much money do I think is it gonna take to put the systems in place to hire the right people and to get to that correctly and that dollar. Now I added it to the grand total and I did that four or five times and I put this grand something together. And I said, okay, that’s how much money I need to make this year in my business. That’s why. That’s the revenue goal, not money first money by product. Okay? So that’s first. Second, you have to realize that it is an exchange of value business. It’s an exchange of value. All right? And so if you want to build a business of your dream, you need to work with the clients of your dreams, right? Ask yourself who it is that you want to serve. When Lauren and I sat down and built out this business, we looked at the entrepreneurial space and we said, listen, we want to serve these people like we have been serving right now, but right now in order for us to continue our learning in order for us to go and get to that next level in order to for us to expand our minds and better understand what’s possible, we need to serve a higher clientele and so we wrote out a list, actual list and listed out all the different types of companies that we would never work with.

19:34 All right people in the porn industry, people in the violence industry, people in Tobacco or alcohol industry. We don’t want to work with those type of people. We also listed off the types of companies that we did want to work with because we want to align our values and we list out the characteristics that those companies look like so that I know that if I walk into a company, I don’t want my clients to like dragged me and I don’t want to dread my clients. I want to be able to walk into my clients and be like, I’m here. This is so exciting. Let’s get to work. Let’s go. Let’s align our values. Let’s go make the world a better place. And so when you understand that you’re exchanging value and that if you identify who it is that you want to work with, they’re going to find you as well and they’re going to be happy to pay you because they are going to understand that you understand their goals and that they understand your goals and that you’re working towards a collective goal together and sales become much easier.

20:28 And uh, uh, maintaining and retaining of clients becomes much easier because you really can get nailed down into that and go, okay, this is what we’re looking for. This is where I can provide value. People are happy to pay 25, 50, $100,000 for your services and we’re out to prove that because a lot of people don’t believe us and we’re going to say, listen, this is what we’re doing. People are going to pay this price because they have the budget. They like what we stand for, we like what they stand for and we really went out and, and, and, and we’re intentional about attracting those people and working with those types of people. Okay? So that’s second. And then the third is that guys, you need to understand, and this is something that Lauren and I have had extensive, extensive, extensive conversations on. It is not all about how fast you go, alright?

21:15 Speed is critical in business. It is having the right timing moved constantly moving forward. Those things are important, but everybody is in such a hurry to get to the next level. Everybody is such a hurry to make 5 million, 10 million, 20 million. In fact, a lot of both coaches on my side and Lauren side, so why are you doing this? You could get to a million dollars faster, you could build a seven figure eight, figure nine, figure business faster than going this route, and we both said we know, but that’s not our goal. Our goal is not to chase money so quickly. Our goal is still to build a business while living a balanced lifestyle while spending time with our families while Lauren’s been times with their daughter, with me, with my girlfriend, and with my parents and my family. We want to still live a life and we still want to chase our goals because for our businesses, not our only goal, and if you really want to build a business of your dreams, you have to get clear on what you want.

22:06 This is why the mind shift playbook is so important. Okay? Go to the Mind Shift playbook. If you don’t have the mind shift playbook, make sure download it. Go to thinkdifferenttheory.com. You can download the mindshift playbook. It is phenomenal. The five questions that you have to ask to change the way you see the world and get whatever you want in life. Okay? Got To get clear on what you want and understand that you can get there fast, but you have speed and your speed takes time. Okay. The more the faster you go, the more time it takes you to make that happen in a day.  So if you’re wanting to spend time with your family, you’re wanting to spend time with you, your wife, your husband, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your kids. You don’t have to go super fast in business. You can build a six figure business relatively quickly, a seven figure business relatively quickly and so stop being in such a hurry to get to the next, a financial level and start being in such a hurry to actually be very intentional about what you want to do.

22:58 And that’s the goal with this business, this consulting business. It’s about more than us. I haven’t even told you what the name is yet. Oh my gosh. I didn’t even realize that the name of the consulting business that Lauren and I are building is called a Vivid New Media and I’m very, very excited about this. Okay. Um, we’re working on the final details of like our website right now and you know, everything getting it up and launched, but we officially announced it yesterday and Vivid New Media is a consulting company by Lauren and myself that works with eight figures and beyond businesses to help them increase their digital marketing footprint and keep them up to date with the most modern and up to date, cutting edge digital marketing strategies. And we’re very, very excited about this. And we chose all those things for very specific reasons around what we love to do, building it in the way that we wanted to because then we can serve the people that we wanted to.

23:53 And so if right now you’re sitting there and you’re saying, I’m scared, I’m scared to go out and start this business. I am too. I’m terrified. And I wanted it to be that very clear. I’m going to appear very confident and I’m going to be going in and meeting with these big people and these multimillionaires and these big, you know, eight, nine, 10 figure companies. I’m scared to death. Of course. I’ve never done this before. I have no qualifications. I’m a college dropout. I didn’t go to college for more than a one semester. I shouldn’t be able to do this right now, but I’m taking a risk and I’m going out there because this is my dream. This is what I love to do. I’m leaving a stable multiple six figures like half a million dollars a year business in order to be making the shift over to pursue bigger and better things.

24:36 Why? Because what I want to do and because I believe that this is my best chance of making the world a better place is how I’m going to refine my skills, how I’m going to learn, and it’s like, well, Josh, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what my client wants. I don’t know what to sell. I don’t either. I’m doing the same thing that you guys are doing right now. If you’re in this process of starting your business. I’m doing market research. I’m calling up companies and asking them what their pain points are. Literally, I’m sending out emails. I’m doing market research. I’m doing interviews for people that have done this. I’m networking and that’s what you need to do. You need to be fearless in this business race. It’s scary. I don’t know what I’m doing, but I know that I have a skillset worth selling.

25:15 I know that I have a skill set that’s gonna. Be able to help these businesses. I know that I can make a difference, so find that skill set of yours that you’re passionate about and go monetize it. Go build a business around it and be very intentional with that, and if you don’t have a skill set that you think that you can sell, learn, learn a skillset. That’s why we lauren and I put together our courses and I’m not here to sell you courses. Go. If I’m not the right course, we we’d go buy someone else’s. Alright, I don’t need your money. I don’t like. I’m here to make the world better and I’m here to help as many people achieve their dreams as possible. If you’re a photographer and you want to get better, go buy a photography course and refine your skill and then go out and sell those for high ticket or a fitness person or a yoga person or whatever you do doesn’t matter, and I’m just very, very excited about this because this whole journey, we’re kind of, we’re kind of sharing it on social media as we go.

26:02 You know, so like we’re going to be posting in my both my group and Lauren’s group as we go, keeping people updated with what we’re doing and what’s going on in our lives and you know how we’re going about building this and our downfalls and when people have questions about clients, we’re going to be helping them and answer him. It’s gonna. Be Super, Super Fun, but this is a risk if you want to build the business of your dreams. If you want to go out there and live the life that you never thought possible, you got to get really uncomfortable. You got to be really comfortable with being uncomfortable. You’ve got to be really okay with going out there and venturing into the unknown. I’m giving you permission right now. I’m leaving a stable job per se or stable income. All right. I’m getting uncomfortable right now.

26:43 I can wake up whenever I want. I can go to bed whenever I want. I can smoke weed all day if I want. I can eat brownies, I will do whatever, and I can still make multiple six figures a year. Not many people can do that. I’m walking away from that and becoming more disciplined, becoming more focused, becoming more clear with what I’m doing, getting better at my craft, and so is Lauren. Why? Because I have bigger dreams because I want to go make the world a better place and because I want to share this journey with you and give you permission. I want to lead by example and live by example, and I hope that inspires you to go out and chase your passenger and chase your dreams. That’s like, that’s what it’s all about. It’s about going out there and doing that, taking that risk.

27:21 So go build the business of your dreams. I actually have you do me a huge favor. I would love to hear what your dream business is and what that looks like for you. Hit me up on Instagram @joshfortiand a slide into my DMs and, and, and, uh, hit me up on there. Let me know what that is and I’ll definitely reply back to you. I’m curious. I want to know who it is that I’m inspiring. I want to know who it is that that’s in my circle, this listening to these podcasts and how I can better serve you and help you. Because if I, if I’m really good at this, that type of stuff. Guys, if you’re like, let’s say you come to me, you’re like, Josh, man, I, you know, I really want to start this type of business. And I’m like, man, I don’t really know a lot about that business.

27:54 But then in six months from now or three months from now, if I’m out and about and I pick up a golden nugget about this business, I will go back in my messages and find you and I will send you a DM and be like, Hey, by the way, you might want to think about this if you’re still doing that because I want to help you. I want to make the world a better place. All right? So I’m very, very excited about this company called Viv and new media to consulting company. I’m taking this risk, we’re moving forward, we’re doing a big push to help people learn the skills that we have that’s allowing us to go do that this week. So if you’re interested in that, go check it out. Um, and uh, you can, you know, we’re doing a super big sale and all that.

28:28 I’m not here to pitch you or, you know, try to sell you anything, but if you’re interested, check out my website. Um, but yeah, it’s exciting. It’s so exciting because once you, the reason that this podcast exists, guys, the reason that I did this is I decided on this podcast once I realized, once Lauren told me he that we were moving forward with this. I was like, okay, I’m moving into the corporate world. Now. I’m going to share my journey. This is the thing that I’ve been waiting to unveil to you. I’m going to share every step of the way. I’m going to build this business. I’m going to document it on the podcast. I’m going to show people what I’m doing. I want to still be able to connect with you. I want to inspire you. I want to go out there and do that and I’m just so excited about this, so go out and do.

29:07 Go out and live and be, be okay with being uncomfortable, be okay with taking risks and understand your life. This whole world is your jungle gym and that’s what this podcast about. There’s a reason that I say you’re now entering a new paradigm because I want you to think completely differently. You got to think differently about everything you do know and understand, and that’s what’s going to allow you to build the life of your dreams. Remember, don’t chase money, chase goals that will allow you to live your best life and and and be very, very intentional about that. K set goals that will allow you to go and live whatever life that you want to live and don’t be in such a hurry. Don’t be in such a hurry to get a million dollars for 2 million or $5 million because guess what? Faster you go, the more stress and more problems come.

29:51 If you build a little bit slower and make sure you solve those things along the way, you’re probably going to live a happier life. Nothing wrong with speed. I’ve nothing against speed. Speed is very important in a lot of areas. Focus on what you want to do and you can have whatever you want. Guys, as always, hustle, hustle, God bless. Do not be afraid to think different because those of us that think different are going to be the ones that changed the world. When you think different, you’re going to be misunderstood and that’s okay. Be Okay with that. Alright. By the way, if you go to Thinkdifferenttheory.com and there’s a store button, we now have tee shirts available. I’m going to be talking more about this in future episodes, but we got really, really cool t shirts available. Um, and remember all profits of any of the tee shirts, any of the things that we do on this show, any profits that we have a 100 percent donated to charity in 2019 to help make the world a better place.
