Last week, one of my role models Mike Vacanti agreed to do a Facetime podcast session with me after a long time of engaging with each other. This was a very humbling experience because Mike, an established fitness entrepreneur who has trained my most favorite person in the world Gary Vaynerchuk, took the 1-hour out of his day and scaled the unscaleable. He could of worked on a thousand different things, which would give him a better immediate ROI, but instead he used this time interacting with me (nobody at the moment, WE AT THE COME UP THOUGH). One of the most important things Mike has said to me is ACTION>INACTION and that statement hit me very hard.
I’ve said this before and Ill say it a million more times, let the market dictate if your product is shit or not, your job is to just create, test, and pump stuff out. When the market says you suck, you take that feedback and go back to change things, then you pump that shit out again. But if you don’t even start, if you don’t even get your shit product/content out, you don’t get the feedback to improve. You stay in a closet filled with fear of what others are going to think. I want you to think my writing, podcast, and content is all shit. I want you to hate it so much you comment telling me how bad it sucks. With the feedback, I can steer my new content to what you want. This is a million times better than not releasing anything and never finding out what you want. You may hate my stuff but you have to respect the hustle.
This week, I interacted with a person who I’m not going to disclose but he told me what are you doing with your life, if employers look at this blog they’ll never hire you because your writing is trash and you use profanity on occasion. In my opinion, employers will see I’m passionate, I’m very honest, I have entrepreneurial tendencies, and I’m always in ACTION. My writing may suck, my podcast might make your ears bleed but at the end of the day I’m moving closer and closer to something great.
Stay tuned... the hustle aint easy
