How Did My Week Used To Look Like
Yesterday I showed you how my weeks are now. Today I will show you how they used to look like when I started. It's important for me to show you this so you can see that things don't happen overnight. It takes time to achieve some kind of success. When I started I knew one thing. I didn't want to work a regular job and I wanted to reach financial freedom so I can focus on my life and spend time with my wife and kids (that I would eventually have). That was what drove me initially and it was enough. I approached my best friend from high school and we agreed to start a business in the cleaning industry. It was a great place to start because we didn't need a lot of money to start and the business was scalable. I only got into business with him because I knew if he agreed he'd be 100% in. I didn't want someone to mess around with, I wanted someone to achieve goals with. I knew he was the man for the job because when he was in high school he had a side gig and within a year he bought himself a nice car and saved up around $50,000. And for a high school kid that was damn impressive to me. It was time to get to work.
We didn't have any experience
We only put in a combined investment of $6,000
We were going to college full-time
Both of us worked (I worked for my dad and he had his side gig trading stuff on eBay)
We didn't have rich parents or any connections
We just put in the work.
Whenever I wasn't working for my dad I worked on the business
Whenever I wasn't going to college or doing homework I was working on the business
The same goes for him
We were on Skype literally 24/7 talking to each other
He answered all maids and I answered all customers (we were open 7 days a week)
When I pulled up to school I'd answer customer emails before I stepped out of the car and when class was done I called any missed calls before I even left the parking lot
This was the grind 24/7 without missing a single day for about 15 months give or take. And guess what? A few months later the business exploded and we had so much work I made the decision to drop out of college and focus 100% on the business. He followed my lead a few weeks later. On top of all that I still tried to go to the gym to get my workouts in (even at 11 at night sometimes). Apart from business and the gym, I did nothing else. I didn't care for birthday parties or holidays.
My main focus was business and if I had to do it all over again I'd do it in a heartbeat. That set my entire future up for me and opened up my mind to things I didn't even know were possible at the time.
