Featured Quotes

“Become a star student. Become a star student in everything that you do. A star student is somebody that reads, consumes and takes notes on the material that they are reading. They don’t passively engage in the books, the content, the audio, the courses, whatever, on the material. They are engrossed in it and they are really becoming a star student. They’re immersing themselves in it. What else does a star student do? They ask questions. Don’t just read the content that you’re looking at. Don’t just listen to this podcast. Ask questions. Try and understand more. Be curious, try and understand what you don’t know. In some ways take the position that you may not know as much as you think you know.”

“The three particular areas that I focused on was list building, Facebook Ads and productivity. List building, Facebook Ads and productivity. Each of the courses I took helped me tremendously to learn the key skills to drive results in the areas of list building, Facebook Ads and productivity. When it comes down to it if you were to focus on any of these in this next year, list building, Facebook Ads and productivity, focus on them all. I believe that you will see results quickly, even this month, this year definitely, if you become that star student.”
