Invest in Your Dream

What you are about to read is the most powerful thing I have ever shared.

This will be food for your soul.

Starting a business is a gamble even in the best of times.

As entrepreneurs we invest time, money and energy into a dream hedging our bets while looking for every advantage.

We take chances that seem outlandish to normal people who see us as foolish.

Family and friends don’t support or encourage us. Instead, under the pretense of not wanting to see you get hurt, they discourage us.

But why should they be considered normal and we are labeled as different?

Is it because we can’t stay chained to the bonds that society has created?

We act, think and dream differently.

Even when the odds are stacked against us and there seems to be no way possible to win, we still look for the ace in the hole.

We wrestle daily with inner demons that cast doubt on our abilities -- telling us we are not good enough, that we will never make it.

They ask you who do you think you are to have such a grand dream and vision.

We are destined to stay shackled to the past which represents our future.

We should settle for average at best.

That we are trapped by our luck and should give up now.

As entrepreneurs we channel the words of the doubters, haters and unbelievers into our fuel for success.

In my home state of South Carolina our motto is “Dum Spiro Spero," which is Latin for "While I Breathe, I Hope."

I believe this to be true for every entrepreneur.

The dream is going to stay alive as long as we have breath in our lungs.

Giving up on a dream is premature death spiritually, emotionally and physically.

It is what separates the wannabes from the real entrepreneurs.

Even when people think we have failed they don’t understand we are just reshuffling the deck and getting ready to play the next hand all in.

Average people underestimate the power of dreams, visions and passions that entrepreneurs live with.

I want you to print this out and tape it to your bathroom mirror.

Now let me ask you a hard question.

When you look at your business, is it growing or shrinking?

Right now if you don’t have a funnel in place for your product, service or offer, the economics are 100% against you.

The price of clicks have skyrocketed over the last 6 months and the easy days of throwing up a funnel expecting it to work are over.

I have a limited time opportunity to work with 3 people to create a marketing plan and funnel that converts cold traffic into leads, clients and profits.

Last time I made this offer I was flooded with applications, and I don’t expect this time to be any different.

PM me ASAP and let me know why I should work with you.

I’m looking to work with entrepreneurs with vision and passion who want to succeed as bad as they want to breathe.

Talk soon,
