From $50,000 In Debt To Selling A Business By Age 30; My Interview With Nick Unsworth

Everybody loves a rags-to-riches story.

I brought my friend Nick Unsworth here up from San Diego. He was completely broke at 28 and was $50,000 in debt. But, Nick turned it around and at age 30 sold his first business.

Sometimes when you watch the news, you see these stories where somebody broke becomes the next Bill Gates and that’s all great.

But it’s also good to understand that you don’t always have to hit a home run. You can move from first base to second to third.

In fact, according to Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham, it’s a much safer approach.

Millionaire Insider Secrets; 10 Tricks Learned From The World’s Top Entrepreneurs

Are there insider tricks that only the elite entrepreneurs know?

I would say without a doubt, yes.

In the spirit of generosity though, let me share a few insider tricks that are rarely talked about in the entrepreneur magazine and conferences:

1. Marketing trumps all: “Good product and good marketing” don’t beat “decent product and amazing marketing.”

2. You need a real team: Like Bill Gates used to say, “I never did anything alone.”

3. Raising capital should be done in precise phasing: Bringing capital from outside sources is rarely wise right at the beginning. Bring in capital once there’s proof of your concept rocking and rolling with real momentum.

Why Fridays Suck (for most people); Model Shoot At The Penthouse With CJ Gibson

I always thought that celebrating Friday and the weekend was a shit mentality.

If you want to know what I did to stop hating my life, here’s my true story.

You don’t want your life to revolve around one or two exciting days of the week.

My mentor Joel Salatin once told me, “Hey Tai, if you have to take a vacation from what you do, you should never come back.”

Most people randomly pick their careers just like the t-shirt they decide to wear for the day.

You need to be more picky.

Anytime you don’t have a plan, you’ll suffer.

If you hate what you’re doing, you have to get into something with a high “tap dance” factor.

You want to tap dance out of bed every morning because you’re so excited to start your day.

If you find yourself as a big “TGIF” person, try to get out of that mentality.

It may take 1 month, 6 months, or 18 months, but you can get out of it.

It’s better to be poor and enjoy every moment of your life, than to be rich and have no momentary happiness.

If you’re not happy with your life, then take some time to map out the life you want.

If Bill Gates can do it, you can too.
