It’s Friday morning and it’s been a pretty good week, but I did have one small distraction that made me pretty ANGRY!
Let me get right to it.
This past week I received a pretty harsh email, basically saying I’m full of crap and most people will never succeed.
This random guy emailed me and said I shouldn’t tell you about my life.
How I was just in Florida at a ballgame or how my dog was sick or how I’m spending time with my family.
blah blah blah…BULLS#%T (his words not mine)
I have to be honest, at first (for a minute) I was pretty upset and I wanted to email back and prove myself. (yell at him)
I was like…who is he to come at me like that.
Then I asked myself…why is the guy even on my email list?
I was UPSET and to be honest…ANGRY!
READ MY HATERS Full Email Below
Note: This email was sent from my previous week's TAS weekly recap.
I decided to block (Jaime my HATER's email), because I’m not that kind of guy where I would wish bad things on him.
God knows, some of my hard core TAS’ers would flood his inbox.
Here's the thing.
Everyday, I put my heart and soul into achieving my WHY and helping others do the same.
Heck, I’ve published almost 500 podcast episodes 3 times a week for 3 years now…for FREE!
Yes, I do have some paid training and I do earn money from them, but I help WAY more people through my podcast for FREE!
I’m helping people everyday and I’m not one of those guys flashing pictures of me in front of fancy cars or big houses, because that’s not me. (that’s not my WHY)
So, I had to calm down for a minute and take a deep breath after reading this email.
I’ve been told in the past by friends and my team that the bigger you get, the more HATERS you'll get.
…and I get it, but it still makes you think for a minute.
We are all human and we want everyone to like us.
But, I’m still learning that everyone won’t like you and there are some angry…jaded people in the world.
So, my next move was to walk over to my “Thank You” wall and look at all the letters sent from people I’ve helped in the past.
I receive emails and voicemails just about everyday thanking me for the FREE content I provide.
Don't Feel Sorry for ME!
Now, the reason I’m sharing this with you, is to not feel sorry for me, but to understand you will always have haters or people that don’t believe in you or what you are doing.
Here’s what I do and you can do as well in the future.
Ask yourself this question.
Do I Believe in What I’m Doing?
If you don’t…then re-think it and ask WHY?
I personally KNOW that what I’m sharing can change people lives.
I’m not just saying everyone that launches a business on Amazon will be a millionaire or even financially FREE.
But, I do know that by starting and learning through the process, it can lead you to success if you continue on your entrepreneurial journey.
Here's an example of the success trail:
I started over 12 years ago selling cedar wooden bridges on Ebay and that put my kids through private school. (and taught me many lessons)
Then that lead me to selling old projectors on that platform and making over 6 figures in 18 months.
Do you see what I’m saying here?
Everything leads to something as long as you continue and are willing to learn along the way.
Having the right mindset is HUGE and not having major set backs when something doesn’t work 100%.
So, even though my Hater (Jaime) said that most people are idiots and won’t succeed, I don’t believe that.
I believe in YOU and know that if someone wants it bad enough…they will find a way and KEEP Trying!
I know I’m going to get some flack from my team and maybe some listeners for sharing this, but I don’t care.
I’m an open book and sharing this felt right.
Plus, I felt like venting and getting it off my chest 🙂
There…now I feel better. lol
To MY HATERS…
if you are reading this and you don't like me or how I'm sharing stories about life…unsubscribe from my emails and stop reading my blog.
I only want to hangout with people that I align with and if that's not you…that's fine.
Now, on to a more positive note…let’s get to this week’s content.

If you are stuck with choosing a product and finding a market, this training is for you.
That’s it for now.
TAKE ACTION and have an Awesome Day!
Remember, most successful people will tell you that 80% of their success is from having the right mindset.
You need to know how to deal with failures and negative people.
Believe in yourself…I do 🙂
