HINT: it’s neither about how smart, nor how hard you work.

1. You think in terms of years, not months.

We are listening for the quiet people whose statements make the noise.

2. You ARE in it for the money.

3. You genuinely care about the people you wish to affect.

The thing you’re creating is useless if you don’t know who it’s for.

4. You focus on the $10,000 per hour jobs.

Someone who’s made it big focuses on the work that has made them big. Someone who does everything will never make it big.

5. You look for “no’s”, not “yes’s”.

The negotiation hasn’t started until you hear “no”.

6. You’re improving every single week

7. Your five closest friends are influencers.

No one makes it big on their own.

8. People are discouraging you all the time.

9. You focus on the problem, not on the product.

Problem > People > Product

10. Settling scares you.


What if you had the courage to only do the work you love?
