When I had questions, I picked about five real estate agents that I knew were doing a good job and smart and really driving their business and would just kind of rotate through who I call with questions. It’s kind of like the whole learned to crawl before you can walk.

Like you can make the most perfect business plan. Doesn’t mean anything unless you actually start. So just start. And then equally important is not to stop because you’re going to run into some hurdles. It may take 10 years to hit a grand slam, but it doesn’t take 10 years to hit a home run. You can get to a sweet spot in less than 10 years. But if you’re willing to put in 10 years, you can really accomplish just about anything.

Throughout 26 interviews, S.A. chronicles the lives and business breakthroughs of entrepreneurs and business owners from all walks of life. "... I'm fifty percent creative and fifty percent analytical, so in my research of these questions that I'm asking everybody on the show, I've done the research to figure out what questions are going to spark an emotional response based upon who I'm interviewing. Then that question opens up Pandora's box. I know everybody's answer is going to be uniquely different, but as they're answering these questions, just based upon the structure of the questions, that's going to lead into a scenario to where it's going to go into faith, it's going to go into, well, I'm doing this because naysayers or somebody didn't believe in me or I hit these particular hurdles. And that's why the questions are staged as they are..." - S. A. Grant

Do your research. Yeah, you need to research the business that you're going into. Sometimes you jump too fast and you don't know the business and that's when you get frustrated. And so you need to do your research. And the tools are out here now. I mean, when I had my business, it was even less. But just when I was coming up, we didn't have the Internet and all of these tools available. So utilize these tools.

If anyway you can figure it out, don't take a bank loan, to do what you want to do. Because then you're working for the bank and that's very stressful, especially if you're living to a time like this where all your best plans in the world might have changed. There's individuals out there who, if your idea is good enough, they're going to believe in you and they will want to invest in your idea. It might take a lot of doors to knock on to find those right people. That's the right deal. - Harris Botnick

Don't let these naysayers tell you that's an oversaturated market for you to open up yet another cigar lounge or that this is why I don't support black businesses or we need to do better or this is why I don't vote or this is why I just don't take no for an answer. Don't get stopped. Don't let anybody else determine or put opinions in your head that take over what you feel in your heart. That is a huge personal message of mine that I think I'll always be sort of grappling with for the rest of my life. - Dona Mathews

I mean, the quality of living for my family, my immediate family, and then now I can see for the legacy that is going to leave behind this change dramatically. So what I would say is, if you're interested in it, pursue it, step out on faith, which is what I did at the time. I stepped out on faith and said, look, I'm going to do this because." - Tondeleo Day @ejadvisortondeleoday

Don't be afraid to fail because you're going to fail a million times and fail could just mean you're going to find you don't like it. So just be willing to experiment all kinds of things, different environments, different people. And you want to work by yourself or with other people. One of the things about having a food truck is the hours of having the food truck would have been Friday, Saturday, Sunday, which were the opposite hours that I wanted to be working on my business. So those are definitely the most important things, I think. Right. Don't be afraid to succeed either, because I know plenty of people that are afraid to succeed. - Sue Coraggio Snape

November 10, 2020 • 76 MIN
Things don't just happen by chance, they just don't. And if you guys think it does, it doesn't. It comes again in the mind. And when you put it out there and you live by faith. Having that faith as small as a mustard seed as I know, we've heard that so many times, that's the thing. I mean, even Jesus says, you know, he talked about this so many times about belief for anybody that puts their heart out, their God will reward a man according to what his deeds go after, according to his deeds deserve. But you have to do it through faith. The mindset of just knowing, you know what, I'm shaking in my boots, but I'm just going to take this leap, I'm just going to do it. That's the point. That's the crossroads life is doing. When I went to that event, a time I even shared that, I really mean it was hard for me to be safe and be who was on a cover and say, you know, in the section, start a road and these intersections happen. You have it was hard to watch.

Always stay humble and don't let anybody knock you from your dreams because everybody has like that, the butterflies in their belly and they are. But they just know that I'm not supposed to be here or I need to be at another level. So number one listened to that. But don't let anybody stop you from your dreams.

"Have a huge appetite for success. Be hungry because if you get content very easily, you want to push yourself to the limits and even go beyond the limits and actually see how far you can go, because then you know how far you can go truly. Surround yourself with people who have scars, not physically, but we can show for themselves that they understand what it's like to be in the trenches. I find it hilarious when we're talking to investment firms and the associate or the partner or the analyst has never built a company in their life. That conversation ends immediately. And I tell them to their face, quit your job and go build a company and don't talk to a founder that's building a company until you've done exactly that. Found a company." - Arjun Rai 👉 Smart Marketing for Underdogs aka SMBs, Grew 20,400% in 2020 🐶 (now works with Hootsuite🦉) 📝Autocomplete API 👉

So I may do a coaching call with someone, or maybe it's reaching out to a customer because I like to call my customers and say hello every once in a while. So I'll reach out and do that kind of stuff. Then I might go into looking at doing some research. I love researching things to see if I can find some ideas. And the other thing that does that, that I'm consistent on Fridays, every Friday I go to Starbucks every single Friday. And then what I do there, I call it Creative Fridays, and all I do is I'll map something out. I will write a sales letter; I will study a course that I just purchased. That's all I do at Starbucks is no other work but creative stuff. And every single Friday for the last two years, I've done that. And I can't tell you something. That's the most powerful thing than that. I'm not actually thinking of doing creative Wednesdays and Fridays has been so good.

I just think that in the end, there's a lot of people who are smart, but there aren't always a lot of people who move you spiritually. And like my grandmother, my great grandmother, Virginia Brewer, I don't even know how far her education, but she had lived her life in a way, and she had become the embodiment of love. That she impacted so many people, so I think if you can tune in to love. You will love yourself, which means that you will embrace all the gifts and the legacies and the graces that you've been given, and you'll put them to work. If you love people, you will bring those gifts to people in a way that they can recognize it as good and they can feel like they were empowered and benefited by the excellence and the care. So I just think love it's not maybe what you would expect an intellectual person to say. I just think in the end, you don't remember people who were just smart. You remember people who moved you. - C Milano Harden

I'm working on courses now, so course development, working on online membership portals, just to get people to get more insight, more information over a period of time for me it is only the right progression in the right direction.

And, you know, we're talking about business strategies. We're talking about monetization of wealth. The only really way to do that is you have to have things in place that are.

He talks about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Apple Computers, and the Wright brothers. And the Wright brothers weren't the only people working on airplanes at the time.

Today's show we have Jehan & Antonio, the founders of United Moving Services. These guys found themselves in two different areas of expertise.
