On August 2nd, my new book Unlock Your Potential will be released to the public. I wrote this book to share my story of how I went from a high school dropout to becoming a multi-millionaire using only the internet and a laptop. This book aims to teach you how to use your skills and talents to create an online business in the modern economy. Starting an online business is the key to controlling your time, income, and life and escaping the rat race for good. So, I decided to highlight a few topics discussed in my book to give you an idea of how this book could change your life. Are you ready?
What is the Modern Economy?
The modern economy is the digital age. Before the internet, Americans were limited to working a 9-5 from the time they graduated college until they retired in their 60s. However, this method of working is outdated and limits your potential. Unfortunately, even with the rise of the internet, we’re still dealing with obsolete employment norms. For example, a 40-hour workweek is still the standard for work despite little evidence supporting it. The 40-hour workweek was created in the early 1900s to cut factory workers’ hours from 16-hour workdays to 8 hours.
Since the pandemic in 2020, there’s been a massive surge of employees quitting their jobs. This phenomenon is known as The Great Resignation. Employees realize they can use the internet to make money without a boss or office. The pandemic made people realize that their once “stable” jobs weren’t so stable anymore. So, they had to come up with alternative money-making methods, leading them to make more money than at their previous jobs. Because of the Gen Z workforce, more remote, flexible work is becoming the norm for employment. Even still, more entrepreneurs are being created than ever before due to the power of the internet. Anyone with internet access can create an online business, become their own boss, and make money from anywhere.
What it Means to be an Entrepreneur
When you hear the term “entrepreneur,” you probably think of Elon Musk or Bill Gates. However, everyone is inherently entrepreneurial. We each have the ability to use our skills and talents to start an online business with little risk or experience. In addition, an entrepreneur is more than just a risk-taker. They have strengthened their personal, professional, and physical development to become the best versions of themselves.
The days of coming up with a product or service, getting people to invest in it, and hoping it makes a profit are long gone. You can start a business online with next to nothing and make a profit. So, why aren’t people doing it? People aren’t taking advantage of this opportunity either because they think it’s too risky or don’t know much about it. We weren’t taught how to use our skills to start a business in school. We were taught to get good grades, go to college, and get a stable 9-5 job with benefits. However, that’s not the best way to unlock your potential and create the life you want. Entrepreneurism is.
Escaping the Broken System
When I say “broken system,” I’m referring to the education, employment, and retirement systems. These systems have been around for over 100 years and are highly outdated. The only way to escape the broken system and live your life on your terms is to start a business.
Although escaping the education system is a bit harder, you can supplement the knowledge from school with entrepreneurial skills. For example, you can study finance, sales, marketing, communication, and emotional intelligence. As for the retirement system, that depends on what you do with your time now. If you do nothing and keep working a 9-5 for 40 years, you may not be able to retire because you’ll need the money. However, if you absorb what I’m telling you and implement it into your life, you can build more than enough wealth to retire early and wealthy.
Developing a Success Mindset
To truly unlock your potential, you have to believe that you can. I wouldn’t have been able to become the person I am today without first believing that I could change myself. If you want to succeed, I advise you to start developing your success mindset. This means looking for the positives in any situation or creating opportunities where there aren’t any. You must dig deep within yourself to clarify your vision and take the necessary steps to achieve it. You can’t do this until you train your mind to think like a successful person.
So, I advise you to study the habits of successful people like myself and tailor your habits to reflect theirs. I recommend starting small and working your way up by focusing on one habit at a time. Eventually, these micro habits build up, transforming your mind to become success-oriented.
My main goal for Unlock Your Potential was to show people that there are alternative paths to success that the school system doesn’t teach you. You don’t have to accept working 40 hours a week for 40 years, pushing your dreams to the side. If you’re an insatiable dreamer, a lifelong learner, and a hard worker, you can unlock your potential and create the life you want in the modern economy!
