Get Out Of the Box to Think Outside the Box

by BJ on February 27, 2015

Decided to hit up the beach today because sometimes, you need to get out of your own box to think outside the box.

Sometimes you need to take a break in your journey as an entrepreneur.

Too much work can lead to burnout and I didn’t want that as I’ve been really going gungho mode in the last 3 months on my health, business, and so forth.

So I decided to take a breather today at the beach.

And oh man…I needed this…

it RECHARGED me like nothing else in a long time…

i mean there are other things that recharges me but there is something about going to the beach or checking out the nature that just relieves you of all the stress that you may have as an entrepreneur and just fills up your soul to the core…

just looking at the beach made me feel like a battery being recharged…and i felt stronger, better, and just felt so much better overall…

so don’t feel bad taking a break once in awhile…we as overachievers think we got to work everyday and no days off…but as i mature as a person and as an entrepreneur, i now know the importance of taking a break here and there…

also enjoy the PROCESS during your journey as an entrepreneur…regardless of your level…building a business is NOT just about the trophy or making the money…it’s the journey…it’s the process…it’s who you become as a person and all that…if you just chase after the dollar, you end up selling yourself out and not really following your heart…

reflecting back, i kind of know why i was feeling stressed out…

it was because i was trying to do too many things all at once…

there are things in my business i LOVE to do…like doing videos…creating content…just CREATING stuff…

but there are also things i HATE doing in my business…like customer support…answering minute detailed messages about technical support here and there…

so after today, i DECIDED to have one of my virtual assistants ANSWER PRETTY MUCH ALL my emails and facebook messages for me…i appreciate you but you have to understand i get TONS of messages not just from you but OTHER people as well in my emails and facebook…don’t take it personally…this is not my strengths and it DE-ENERGIZES me…

that’s why I’m an entrepreneur…i CREATE THINGS…i need to OPEN MY MIND and see the BIG VISION and the BIG PICTURE…if I scrunch myself up to answer minute details, it DE-ENERGIZES me…again, please be respectful before you ask specific questions because my tips are through my PRODUCTS, SERVICES, and HIGH TICKET CONSULTING…

don’t get me wrong…i appreciate all my subscribers and members…but I got to be true to myself and build an internet business where i have a LIFE as well!

So from now, I won’t be answering emails or facebook messages as much as possible because I got to LEAD by EXAMPLE too!

Nothing personal. Like I said if you want to talk one-on-one or ask me questions and ARE SERIOUS, then I have LIMITED spots open for consulting at http://www.BJMin101.com/mentor for $1000 an hour (My advice is worth MORE than that for the RIGHT student).

You may not understand me but as your business grows, you will see this as a challenge as well. So I want to lead by example just like my mentors do this as well.

I am in process to get a virtual assistant to answer ALL my emails and ALL my facebook messages…i will once in awhile check but i will START A NEW HABIT to not answer as much as possible because this is what causes me the stress in my business. Thus, I will create a FAQ that answers common questions in future.

Again, if you really want my personal time, then you must pay for my high ticket consulting at http://www.bjmin101.com/mentor.

When you FOCUS on your strengths, it ENERGIZES YOU…but when you focus on your weaknesses, it STRESSES YOU OUT!

that’s why I’m going to KEEP FOCUSING on my STRENGTHS…like creating videos DAILY…i create videos EVERY DAY for my future website at http://www.Dreampreneur.com (still in progress as I’m currently focused on Video Commissions) for my future training…it comes NATURALLY…

but for MY WEAKNESSES, i am going to outsource it…

So for your business do the SAME so you can continue to feel energized, alive, and live the INTERNET FREEDOM LIFESTYLE you want…

Don’t try to be the chief cook, bottle washer, etc…it will STRESS YOU OUT like it did to me recently…

hey, i’m not perfect…this is a journal of my journey of continually growing and becoming the best entrepreneur i can be to make the impact i want to make…and that really comes from FOCUSING on my strengths…

same thing for you…

FOCUS on your strengths…and OUTSOURCE the rest…

talk soon,

Taking a Step Back

by BJ on February 26, 2015

hey there…sometimes i realize LESS is MORE…

sometimes, i’ll be honest with you…i was trying to do so much…with the right intention to achieve my big goals and so forth…and i’m moving with A LOT of things in my life…but at the same time, i can’t do EVERYTHING and can’t be at all places at one time…

…at the end of the day, i realized i need to take a step back once in awhile in this journey to “achieve” and “succeed” in my dreams…

don’t get me wrong…i’m not saying not to go for your dreams…i want to keep encouraging you to go for your dreams…but also ENJOY the process…ENJOY life during the process…because sometimes, i tend to forget that and i just want to share with you in this process…

…that’s why just recently i started taking at least 1 day on Sunday (or at least do my best) to take time off from anything related to my business….

i know i am a pretty intense guy…but i realize when i get too intense for too long of a period of time, then i can burn out…

i’ve experienced before in 2013 when i went to like 10 seminars in a span of about 9 months…it was crazy…i was giving it all i got but you know what? at the end of that year, i burned out…

so it’s important to take a step back once in awhile…

in your life and in your business…

i know i get very intense in my videos…i get passionate…but that’s not the only side of me…

in fact in reality, i’m very introverted…

and looking back, that was just me trying to overdo it out of my own limiting beliefs thinking that i had to be like that to succeed…

but as i mature, i realize me being me is the best way…

…just like for YOU, you being YOU is the best way for YOU…

i was on gung ho mode lately…for 3 months…

and i changed A LOT in my personal life and business…

and honestly, i feel like i’m finally making the type of IMPACT that i want to make in people’s lives one step at a time…no matter how small it may be now…

but i don’t want to burn out…

that’s why before that happens, i want to really take a little step back for now…

you won’t see as much blog posts, emails, or even videos…

don’t get me wrong…i’ll STILL do it to because I LOVE DOING THIS…but it’ll be less…and you know…that’s BETTER FOR YOU…because LESS IS MORE…especially in this information overload world…because that gives YOU SPACE to FOCUS on YOUR DREAMS…

trust me…I LOVE DOING videos…content…I LOVE IT…after putting my many hours into it, i feel like a musician that HAS to create music…i have ideas and insights that come into my mind EVERY DAY!!! that’s why i’m able to do these videos constantly…just like that, work on your craft…whatever your craft is…one step at a time…

but again i’m a human being…a walking contradiction…this is just me sharing my JOURNEY with you…as you are also on YOUR JOURNEY at YOUR STAGE in your life and business…

i’ll be back…i may not be able to answer all your messages…because we live in a 24/7 world where it’s stressful to be “on” all the time…and if that stress builds up so much, it can burn you out…and i’ve experienced that before in my journey…and i don’t want to get there again…

plus, i actually have to FOCUS on finishing a NEW sales page for Video Commissions (written by a top notch copywriter) and also need to spend an ENTIRE WEEK next week in FLORIDA to learn from Dave Sharpe! (that’ll be pretty exciting for me…and i’ll share you some stuff when I get back after a little mini break to FLORIDA!)

…i know i’m intense and pushy at times but as i mature as a person (and you’re basically witnessing my journey the GOOD and the BAD…the REAL), i realize at the end of the day, life is all about being yourself (that’s the best thing you can do…and that’s the message i want to keep sharing with you…to you be you all the way…)…and you know, it’s okay to be contradictory…because we are all human…

so you follow your path in your way…your style…your stage…one step at a time…

i’ll talk soon,
BJ

What To Talk About In Your YouTube Videos

by BJ on February 25, 2015

I get a lot of questions about what to talk about in their videos.

Here’s what I talk about.

And again, this is just my way and it’s NOT the only way.

I like to talk about my real life lessons in my online journey of making it as a full time internet entrepreneur.

I think it’s more powerful to talk about your real life lessons (regardless of what stage you are in) to share with your followers. It can be about your dreams, aspirations…and also the ups and the downs…

…because the world is getting more and more crowded these days…

as the world gets more and more crowded, it becomes harder to hear your voice…

but there is a SOLUTION.

the solution is to be yourself ALL THE WAY.

So I would recommend you to find out what your gifts are.

What is it?

Is it music?

Is it cooking?

Is it painting?

Is it dancing?

What is it?

ONLY YOU KNOW.

Deep down in your heart, you already know what that your gifts are.

And you can USE YOUR GIFTS in YOUR VIDEOS!

That’s when you shine.

That’s when you are you best self.

Don’t copy me.

Instead, be yourself to the fullest.

…and I believe you can use your gifts with videos to express yourself to the fullest!

But at the same time, be REAL.

Talk about the good and the bad…because we humans are all human beings.

Just because I have made it as an internet marketer doesn’t mean I’m super human.

I still have issues and struggles in my life that I need to work on.

I’m not saying to focus only on the bad…but admit when you are overcoming some struggles…just to be you…because people want to know the real you…the people who resonate with you already like you for who you are…

you can’t please everyone in the world…

just be you…and when you are to the fullest, the ones who resonate with you will really connect, like, and thus buy from you…

that’s how you do video marketing in a simple way…

and again, in a weird way, i hope I answered your question on what to talk about in your videos…

use your gifts in your videos…

Here’s a video I made today at the park.

I explain why I deleted 99% of my old autoresponders in my getresponse account for the internet marketing niche.

That’s because I am no longer who I was before.

You see…change is inevitable…and change is necessary if you want to become the person you want to become and truly live your dreams all out…

…and one preacher named TD Jakes once said along the lines of

“Let go of your history in order to move into your destiny!”

He actually said “When you hold on your history, you do it at the expense of your destiny”

That’s what I’m doing now…

…As I let go of my history (let go of the MULTIPLE business opportunity programs), now I’m TOTALLY FREE to go ALL OUT into my DREAM BUSINESS all the way…which is to inspire people like to build your OWN dream business online…

Going for my dream business has been MORE FULFILLING than the mlm programs I was in before or the multiple niches that I wasn’t aligned into in the past…

Enough was enough for me…

I was not really GOING for my dreams….

but this year in 2015, I am so happy to say I am FINALLY going for it…i can feel it…i can sense it…i can SEE IT…i can see the VISION already…i can see what impact I am going to make in the future…

…to help PEOPLE who want to build their DREAM BUSINESS to GO FOR IT…all out…

…because you see, people tell you to go all in their business…but then you won’t go all out in that business if that business is not the business that you truly want to do from YOUR HEART…

You got to find your OWN DREAMS…

not someone else’s dreams…

don’t get me wrong…i’ve been in MULTIPLE mlm programs before and there’s nothing wrong with that because it’s a good stepping stone for many people…but sometimes, you got to get out of your current stepping stone and go to your NEXT STEPPING STONE…your TRUE DREAMS that is STIRRING inside of your heart…

So you may be an internet marketer who makes money online and maybe you’ve been trying so hard swimming upstream for so hard and lacking the results or the fulfillment where you feel like you’re not totally alive…

maybe it still feels like a job that you hate…

i’m not here to judge no one because I was feeling that in several different businesses I was in the past…

…but long story short, now I’m FINALLY moving into the direction of my dreams…

i’m FINALLY feeling ALIVE more than before!

I started with my current course Video Commissions which is all about the core mechanics on how to use videos to get traffic online…

…and after that, I already have the VISION to help students to build their DREAM business online…where they can make money in the direction of their passion, dreams, vision, etc…

So if you’re interested in this type of topic, stay tuned because through my site Dreampreneur.com, I will be releasing something AWESOME to help students build their dream business online to the next level…

I’ll talk to you soon…

This video shares the ups and downs of the journey to achieve success online.

Through my real life experiences, I want to share with you what it REALLY takes to succeed online.

It’s NOT going to be a cakewalk.

It’s NOT going to be easy.

It’s NOT going to a push button software where money falls from the sky (DESPITE the fact you may see from so many messages online about the exterior things you want to see…because it just tends to convert in this industry…but once you become a member of my programs, I teach you what you NEED).

You may see what you want (the flashy lights, the income proof, the cars, the money, the etc…) but once you get my training, I will teach you what you REALLY NEED to succeed online.

I’ve been doing internet marketing ever since 2000.

Seriously since 2007.

…and my journey wasn’t all easy. There were so many times where not everything was quite perfect.

There were stumbling blocks.

There were times when I totally gave up on my dreams.

There were times when I thought I couldn’t make it in the “internet marketing” niche (the niche I wanted to focus on and succeed in…which is the niche I am in now).

There was a time where I was feeling struggle within my heart DESPITE the fact I made six figures a year online.

There was a lot of those moments.

…But all those moments were part of the LONG PROCESS I look back on and make me emotional…thinking back…because it is only through struggle, that you get to APPRECIATE where you to get to accomplish down the line.

Listen…maybe you may feel like you have nothing right now…

maybe you feel like giving up…

…i’ve been there as well…

even during the times when I was making money online…especially the times where I was making money from niches that I wasn’t 100% aligned to…settling for making money in niches with a pen name and in a niche I wasn’t proud of…

but looking back, those all happened to me to know what my REAL purpose in the internet marketing industry is…to inspire people to go into their dream business online…to follow their heart…to follow their passion…to use their God given gifts in the direction of the business that they TRULY want to do from the inside out…

it’s quite a long video but you know what…it does share my real life story longer than I shared to others before…

I hope you get the lessons, and take the lessons that you can apply into this online journey of yours…

it’s not a cake walk…it’s not a sprint NO MATTER how many times you may see those type of MESSAGES on so many advertising, marketing (including my own)…

…this is my real story…thank you for watching…i appreciate you all…thank you…

BJ

PS…As you may or may not know, I am now moving on from the MLM/network marketing world…to follow my dreams of building my own information product business in the direction of my dream niche (to help other people succeed online ESPECIALLY in the niche of their dreams)…if you want to continue to learn from me to the NEXT LEVEL, check out my NEWEST INTERNET MARKETING & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING here which is NOT just about internet or video marketing…but also about personal transformation, internet marketing, video marketing, and success lessons to help you build your dream business and make it online.
