A year ago, I was moving out of my apartment across the country, leaving my 9-5 job, and moving back home.
I had no job lined up, no plan figured out, but in this year, I was able to reach some unreal goals.
All this, with limited resources, especially when I was first starting out.
From one entrepreneur to another, I hope this saves you the TIME it would take to figure it all out on your own.
This freebie is a heavy one, so buckle up.
There are three main methods I used continued my learning.
But remember: You don’t necessarily need the most expensive courses, or the craziest trainings to be successful.
Most of what I learned are things you can do when you make the most of your resources
METHOD 1: BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS
The wealth of knowledge you can learn from a book is insane.
You are learning DIRECTLY from experts, at your own pace, with info you can revisit anytime.
Here are the ESSENTIAL skills for entrepreneurship and the resource list of how I learned them.
And for your reading lists, here are the titles that made the biggest impact on me.
DOTCOM SECRETS by Russel Brunsen
This book taught me the ins and outs of marketing funnels. It’s the reason why I know how to monetize anything and everything online.
THE LITTLE RED BOOK OF SELLING – JEFFREY GITOMER
This is an amazing resource for getting started with SALES at any level and at any budget.
CA$HVERTISING – DREW WHITMAN
This book is a great step-by-step blue print of copy writing and taught me how to become a better story teller and how to structure what i want to say. Learning effective copy writing is essential to building your sales skills.
BUILDING A BRAND STORY – DONALD MILLER
On the topic of brand building, this book is less about copywriting but is more about the components of compelling story telling which is even as essential.
HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE – DALE CARNEGIE
this book will help you make good first impressions, becoming a great conversationalist, how to naturally attract people, and much more
METHOD #2: TAKE A COURSE AND ACCELERATE
This is the option for someone who wants to make the most of their time.
Instead of going with the DIY route (aka figuring every single thing out for yourself) a course could be the best option to get the STEP BY STEP breakdown of what you’d like to learn.
There are lots of amazing options to try out, so I always suggest you do your research before investing your hard earned money.
This leads into a final exciting announcement for you…

I can’t wait to share more about it!
METHOD 3: LEARN FROM YOUR 9-5
Despite what every hustling social media boss tells you, you 9-5 isn’t as usless as you think.
I found there were SO many skills I learned from my 9-5.
And it definitely became a big part of me and my business mind.
See for yourself how you can make the most of your situation today.
Alright, that’s it for this week!
Now that you’re armed with my money-making methods….
What’s your next move, Boss?
