Dont' quit when it gets hard.

+ Get better hooks with AI

Most people quit when it gets hard.

Building an online presence is very, very hard.

There is no shortcut.

I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you today, building your personal brand is a war.

You are going to want to quit.
You are going to get bored in a month.
You are going to have posts that perform poorly.

Most people reading this, aren’t going to build an income on LinkedIn.

That is sad to me.

LinkedIn has been the platform that has allowed me to truly be location-independent.

I’ve built a personal brand in 4+ years that allows me to write this email from a skyrise in South America.

I’m not the richest man in the world, but I have freedom to do what I want and work where I want and when I want.

This wasn’t given to me. I fought for it.

In 2022 it was the most difficult year of my life.

I walked through a divorce.
I lost my best friend.
I was homeless.

I still scaled my ghostwriting business to 6 figures, built a powerful personal brand, and became known for being unhinged.

Banned over 7x and picked fights with all the biggest personal brands on LinkedIn. Needless to say, people enjoyed my schtick.

Many times I thought about quitting. It felt pointless, and I felt discouraged, but I showed up anyway.

So look, if you are feeling discouraged about your personal brand today, if your business lost some clients or had a bad month financially, I want you to hear this.

Suck it up.





Look, we are almost done Q1 in 2024.

I’ll be honest with you.

I’ve had a terrible 2024 financially.

I launched and burnt down a community that had huge potential and it cost me money. I fired multiple clients because I was just tired of dealing with them. I made it near impossible to book a coaching call with me AND I refer 100% of my leads right now.

I decided I was going to pause until Q2.

That meant staring a TON of losses right in the face.
That meant embracing the feeling that I wanted to quit.

I felt it all.

The good, the bad and the UGLY.

I also started meditating.

Social proof lol

It’s been 25 days, and I’ve done it for at least 30 minutes every morning.

Meditating has made me feel more peaceful, happier, and less angry.

But you know what it hasn’t done?

Helped me win.
Helped me get more $$$
Helped me achieve my goals.

I’m 69% sure I will go back to listening to David Goggins scream at me in the morning because I need to start winning more in Q2.

Why am I rambling and sharing this with you?

So you know you are not alone.

Everyone walks through, wanting to quit.

But those who achieve the success you want, don’t give up.

They find a way to fight.

So fight on, friend.

Fight on.
