socialtrigderekUseless991Okay, I get it. Just try not to be too turned off by his marketer-personality initially. He still has some decent insights. Just aim for practical implementation. You’ll empathize with his point of reference. Worth a look.

Almost a decade ago, when I was just getting started as an entrepreneur, I remember thinking to myself, “All I want to do is make 100k per year”

So I broke it down and realized “I need 10k per month.”

(Young Derek was a math wizard, obviously).

At that point, I didn’t even know what $500 looked like, let alone $10k.

Yet, there I was, shooting for the stars – and getting frustrated.

Let’s be honest here. I’m a lot more old school than Derek, but I understand where he’s coming from. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll level with you and state upfront that I make my money the old fashioned way. I go into an office each morning, shuffle paper all day, shake hands with familiar faces and complete strangers, read charts, look up codes, and talk face-to-face with people about how to improve their financial situation. That’s what I do ALL DAY. Yes, it’s boring. However, at the end of each work day, I leave the office trusting that my good deeds were done and I sleep well each night.

More to come.
