Get Started or Get Left Behind

Listen.

If you haven’t noticed already, the world is changing… rapidly!

Time waits for no one. And once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. You’ll never get the seven seconds it took you to read the last few sentences back either.

Ever.

Make the Next 40 Count

So, instead of dwelling on the time and years you’ve already used and are gone forever, let’s focus on what you’re going to do with the next hours, days, months and years. Because let’s face it, if you’re around forty years old you’ve probably got AT LEAST 30 years left to live. And if you take care of yourself you could have 50 years or more to go.

It’s Ain’t Your Father’s World

If I had a dime for everytime my grandpa and dad told me to “work hard and get a good job” I’d probably be a billionaire. Warren Buffet would probably be my butler.

Ok, maybe that’s a stretch, but you get what I mean.

Now they weren’t trying to misdirect me or lead me down the wrong road, they just didn’t know any better. That’s what they did because that’s what they were told to do by their dad and it used to work. You used to be able to get a job at a manufacturing plant or big corporation, work 40 hours a week for 40 years and be set with a nice pension. Hell, mama was even able to stay at home with the kids, take care of them and you could take a family vacation each year. All from daddy’s paycheck.

More Millionaires Than Ever

If you buy into the doom and gloom you hear on the ‘news’ you probably want to jump off a bridge. Yes, it’s true job numbers are down and unemployment is up. But that doesn’t mean there’s not any opportunities out there. However, it does mean that you’re going to have to get off your ass, take action and learn something new.

Yep, it’s going to take effort.

But so what. You’re working now anyway and you’re probably doing something you hate that isn’t paying you enough.

It’s time for you to stop being afraid of marketing, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and all the other awesome technology tools we have literally at our fingertips. Jeff Bezos of Amazon was a little ahead of the curve, but it seems to be working out fine for him. Mark Zuckerberg, a nerd mind you, is making billion$ with Facebook. Twitter is on the rebound. All you really have to do is pick a niche, something you like, and learn how to market it. You can also learn social media marketing for way less than you probably think.

But you have to put in the effort and learn something in order to capitalize on it.

Watch Gary Vaynerchuck’s video below. He learned how to leverage social media and the internet and his wine business EXPLODED. And let’s not forget about the Dollar Shave Club either. Another product that’s been around as long as beards, but they found another angle to sell razor’s and now they’re making millions.

Don’t let this younger generation get all the money and have all the fun. It’s your turn.

Just because things are changing doesn’t mean you’re chances of success are diminishing. Actually, they’re doing the opposite if you position yourself right.

Don’t let this younger generation get all the money and have all the fun. It’s your turn.
