Regardless of gender, race or religion, we all want the same thing.

I would say LOVE AND BE LOVED is one of them but what I've found is this.

What we want ultimately is to have the FREEDOM to be ourselves.

YES! We want the love and money but truly if you've the time to sit and really ask yourself this question.

"What do I really want?"

Is it true you want more money and love or is it the need to be liked?

You don't really want all the money in the world. If that's your deepest desire, you would already have it by now.

Don't believe me?

If one of your loved one is kidnapped today (God forbid!) and the kidnappers demanded $1,000,000 (ONE MILLION DOLLARS) by 12 midnight tonight, trust me! You'll channelled all your energy to get that $1,000,000. 

You won't even think of eliminating the possibility of begging and stealing.

You won't even think you're shameless to ask every person you meet on the street because YES! You're desperate.

That means if you really want it, you'll have it and... the UNIVERSE or God conspires to make it happen.


So... that being said, do you really want to start a business? Or do you think that by having a business, you can make more money and live out your mission?

You don't need to start a business to have a purpose in life.

Not everyone is destined to be an entrepreneur. 

I know of many CEOs who are making $5 million a year. I also know many employees making 6 figures a years.

On the other hand, I also know many entrepreneurs making less than $500 a month and struggling to pay their bills.

So it's a facade and a lie that people try to sell you this fantastic entrepreneur lifestyle.

Being an entrepreneur is worse than trading time for money. When you're an employee you get paid every single month.

Not every action you take in your business equals ka ching!

Not every business will be a unicorn.  Companies like Airbnb, Uber, Instagram....


How long does it take for one to become a qualified Doctor or Lawyer?

At least 8 - 10 years.

Do you know how long it takes before the puffer fish apprentice becomes a full fledge chef?

10 years.

So why do we suddenly think one can make $30k in 30 days and if we don't we feel like a failure?


Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Don't believe everything you learn on marketing strategies.

I'm not saying that it's not possible. It is!

But running a successful business takes a lot of failures.

So... if you're one who is afraid to take risks - don't start a business.

If you don't have the grit to hang on for at least 3 years - don't start a business.

If you don't have enough savings to last you for at least 6 months - don't start a business.

I'm not asking you NOT try. I'm inviting you to take calculated risk and have something to fall back on.

It's not fun struggling with $1 in your bank account. And I've had many of these days and I don't wish that upon you.

Don't quit your job immediate to jump into a business.

Do your research well.

Give yourself some time to adjust.

In the meantime, work on your mindset. You need a mindset shift from employee to business owner.

It's ok to start as a hobby business owner. I don't know why people think it's shameful to have a hobby business and that you must become a full time entrepreneur.

What does being a full time entrepreneur mean if your hobby business is making money anyway?

That being said, touch your heart and play the whole tape through if you can really take the rejection and the hustle.

It's not a crime if you can't take rejections. 

Please don't believe everything on the internet.

You can use your money to do good if you haven't figured out your purpose.

Perhaps your purpose is just to be happy and bring happiness to wherever you go.

That's a big purpose too ... you know!
