#QOTD: I need your fantasy baseball sleeper. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, give me your technology app sleeper. Don’t use Meerkat.
2:16 – What do most people want to get out of social media?
4:46 – How do you maintain a pleasant mood with family after a long day of hustle?
7:07 – A lot of people on Instagram ask me for a “like for like.” How would you respond to that situation?
9:38 – How do you motivate teams of remote workers without a payment incentive?
11:08 – How can I take my website to the next level? Make it go viral? Increase sales?
I have always had the ability to come home after a long day and leave it all behind for my family. My dad did not have that ability, and maybe that’s why it affected me. I am so grateful and so thankful to my family members, especially my wife, who allow me the freedom to hustle the way I do. I feel like it’s totally inappropriate to disrespect that love, to then carry over my headaches home.
There have been a good amount of people who have said to me how much they admire that I never take my headaches out on them. At the end of the day, there are really two people: people that need somebody else to dump their headaches on, and people that collect the headaches of others. I admire my mom tremendously for that. She collects everybody’s headaches. I’m very thankful that I took that DNA from her.
I’m thrilled to hear your headaches, but I have no interest in giving you mine. And so that foundation, that DNA trait, allows me to walk right into home and forget the problems. Lost a client. Can’t ship to a state anymore on Wine Library.com. Didn’t get that deal. Somebody’s sick. All these things that are life and intense, the second I walk in that door I need to repay that amazing family that has given me the opportunity to do my thing by shutting that all off and turning on a different gear.
The truth is, it’s just easy for me. I have different parts of myself, different gears, and I can switch between them. I gear it up.
