Follow these mottos:
- Actions Over Outcome
- The only competition is yourself. 1% better every day
- Productivity & Perseverance are the keys to success 4. Simplify everything
If you want to become a digital entrepreneur, understand the following 4 core tenets to your business:
Clarify your goals/know your finish line, specializing in an industry, build a tribe/audience organically, simplify everything, create prestige packages instead of fighting for the bottom of the barrel.
Be aware of your obstacles: Overwhelm, information overload, freelancer trap, superman syndrome, imposter syndrome, lack of systemization, and so on. For example, at the current moment, Alex is also working on his SaaS program for lead-generation: Prospecting In A Box and his mentorship program. In order to be able to run multiple businesses at once, you must be aware of the ideals that will push you forward vs the ones that will hold you back.
Your time is the greatest, most-valuable resource and you can’t get time back. To execute at the highest level, you have to understand the full gravity of time and the consequences of wasting it. It’s important to prioritize your life and business in a way that alines with your values.
