Every now and then:
I see someone on Twitter lamenting about how:
"I have a first class / 2nd class upper degree and I can't find a job
Well, congratulations you graduated with good grades,
But stop being a jerk...
The reality... that even a 9-year-old knows... is this:
Your degree is not as useful as you think it is
You have a piece of paper that 20million other people have
And even if you got so lucky you landed a job
Your earning capacity is still limited
How much will they even pay you?
N100k a month?
N200k a month?
N300k a month...?
The system is fucked
You are no longer in the era where having a degree and being a graduate makes people say "WOW!"
Sure, get a job or keep your job if you want to...
But if you're being realistic
You'll know that a monthly salary is not enough
Tragedy may strike... an emergency or something might come up
And what if your salary hasn't come at the time?
What if there's no one to lend you money?
What if your salary has been paid but it's not even enough and you're stranded with nowhere to go ?
Are you beginning to see why you need to figure out a way to earn without limits?
Like I said... nothing wrong with having a job
It's just.... you need to get your money right and be in a position where you alone decide how much you're making every month
You can either start a business... or learn a skill... or create a joint venture
Please don't ask me what skills you can learn
Or what business you can start
You have a smartphone, Google and the internet
Follow thought-leaders in sales and marketing on Social media
You'll be shocked what you find if you're really serious about finding the right answers from the right sources
Focus on one thing
Resist the temptation to jump from one thing to another
A lot of folks say they want t succeed badly but can't even focus on one thing for more than 3-days
If you're really serious about succeeding at something
You'll be ready to focus for as long as you need to get your desired results'
Doesn't matter if it's 30-days or 12-months
And even when you start getting your desired results
You need to keep your focus tight and continue bringing your A-game
And keep raising the bar for yourself too.
This is how I train my Copywriting students
And it's no wonder many of them are killing it in their various niches today
And you know....
You probably read my emails sometimes and you wonder why I'm not bombarding you with blatant sales pitches everyday....
I mean... I'm routinely referred to as a Copywriting God and I should be demonstrating that via daily email pitches yea?
I could do all of that if I wanted to
But I want you to actually learn a lot from my emails before you see a pitch
And if... somewhere along the line...
After reading one of my emails, you feel like you want to try my paid stuff
You're welcome to try
But for now...
All that matters is that you look at everything I say...
Pick the good stuff
And apply it accordingly
Because that's the point of these emails
To give you a little nudge in the right direction
And frankly speaking...
I didn't even want you to attribute anything in your success story to me'
If you have a gut feeling to write me saying I played a role in your success story
Otherwise, it's not necessary
The only thing that really matters to me is that you get your money right in your youthful years so you don't have to go thru life worrying about money
Whatever that means
P.S: While it's true that Copywriting changed my life
The best feeling for me is seeing my students making good money for themselves
Either working with clients or just running their own biz
I can't promise you similar results
But if you get my paid stuff...
And you work hard & smart consistently, you will make money
Enough to take good care of your loved ones..
Live a comfortable life
And still have some cash lying around to play with.
I'm currently taking in students for my Copywriting Class this February
