“How do I get clients Mitch, I tried the things you said and it didn’t work for me. I feel like I am just not getting traction and being taken seriously in my industry”.
It didn’t work because you don’t know your stuff well enough to back yourself up and it’s subconsciously putting the brakes on being really confident out there.
If you want to be treated like a world class expert, you kinda gotta have world class skill in something, no?
I teach tons of shortcuts, but none of them can help you if you don’t know what you are talking about.
When I thought I knew everything about marketing, nothing I tried worked.
It took me years of spinning my wheels and grinding to realize
I was just not as good as I thought I was.
I was delusional. As recently as 2012.
You really have to assess yourself here.
To the opposite of Gary V, if that’s you, I say slow down your hustle and get your skill set sorted first.
Really dial in your craft.
Enjoy the process, study your craft like your life depends on it. And choose a skill that comes natural to you.
If I wanted to become an expert stock analyst, I’d be broke the rest of my life trying to figure it out.
When it “clicks”, you’ll know you are ready. Then you can flip the hustle switch back on and everything becomes easier because you are the real deal.
Patience my friend.
