I love The Matrix.
There are so many business lessons in that movie.
For example, Neo meets a kid bending spoons with his mind. The child teaches him..
Child: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Child: There is no spoon.
We place so many limitations on ourselves and our lives based on what’s expected of us.
Go to college. Get a job. Be a good little worker bee who doesn’t make waves. Put in your 40 years to life. Retire when you’re old and grey.
What if none of those rules exist?
I’m a college dropout who earns considerably more than 98% of college graduates.
I was a horrible employee who couldn’t even hold a job. Yet, I’ve been consistently running my business for more than 2 decades.
Making waves is required to get attention in a competitive online environment.
I prefer mini-retirements when you’re young enough you can still enjoy them.
And that doesn’t even get into all the so-called rules of online marketing that don’t really exist either.
What’s right for Joe and his business may not be right for you, your customers, and the lifestyle you want to create.
Another favorite scene from the Matrix is when Neo is hooked up to the machine that downloads information directly into his consciousness.
He learns martial arts in just a few seconds, and wakes up saying, “I know Kung Fu.”
I’ve had experiences where I’ve struggled with a problem in my business for weeks or months.
But when I brought it to my mastermind buddies, we quickly found the answer.
And often I leave the group wondering why in the world hadn’t I thought of that. The solution was so simple. It was obvious, but I couldn’t see it.
Bringing in experienced entrepreneurs who weren’t stuck inside the problem gave me an immediate solution.
It was like downloading the answer into my brain.
I’ve been on the other end of that scenario also where I’ve had a client come to me and I helped them solve a problem they’ve struggled with, sometimes even for years.
And we solve it in just one session.
All they needed was some outside feedback and a push in the right direction from someone who has faced that problem before.
That’s why I’m so excited about the mastermind group I’m going to telling you more about soon.
You’re going to have access not only to me, but to two additional online marketing consultants with years of experience and millions of dollars in sales.
Plus, we’re setting up the group in such a way that you’ll be able to tap into breakthroughs from other members.
Being a member of a community with this much proven expertise will mean that a solution to virtually any problem you face is only a few clicks away.
It will only be a few more days until I let you know everything that’s included…
