The opportunity for your personal brand is greater than the opportunity for your business' brand. The people who ask, "Do you really need both?" are failing to see this truth. With a personal brand, you are able to differentiate yourself from the competition in a wildly unique way. The landscape caters to individuality; it’s a platform for self-expression. However, with a business’ brand, the story behind the product or service inevitably gets diluted by the fact that it is a product or service...

Learning doesn’t mean school. But we grow up thinking that books, worksheets, and homework is the only way to learn something. So we spend our days trying to cram information into our brains via a system that doesn’t work.
On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing how to control our social circle. As our careers progress, we find more and more people entering our lives. This influx can be overwhelming if we don’t take the time to evaluate whether or not the people around us are serving or hurting our success.
It’s hard to know who’s telling the truth. Everywhere we turn, we’re met with someone new feeding us some new bit of information. When it comes to our career and education, we are instructed to go to the academic institutions, acquire the degrees, and then the jobs will be coming to us. But is this reality?
The media paints a very specific picture of what’s required for success. We watch the movies and see the images of the entrepreneur grinding away late into the night. This mass messaging has us feeling inadequate when we aren’t burning the midnight oil on our side hustles. But what if your recipe for success calls for something different?
Every business must have an online presence. Whether that’s as simple as a Facebook page or as complex as a custom-built online store, a company must digitize its DNA today. By bringing the business to the cloud, you are able to harness the Internet’s power, making your potential customer base that much bigger.
Opening up a business once meant signing a lease. But today, the recipe for entrepreneurship calls for something far different. With just a few clicks online, you can have an e-commerce store up and running. Gone are the days of gatekeepers, as most online platforms have removed the barriers to enter entrepreneurship.
Each person has a unique story. But it’s sometimes hard to see that inside the very noisy marketing world. From all angles, all day, we are bulldozed with branding content that aims to shift our consumer behavior. But how much of it actually work? When we take a step back and examine what messaging is actually effective, we see that it’s those that are derived from truly unique stories.
Marketing is storytelling. And there is no greater venue for storytelling than the Internet. Today, the opportunity to market your business is unprecedented with an online presence. With no barrier to entry on social platforms, you can launch your business or brand to the top.
It’s easy to blame externalities. When we zoom out to examine our lives, we often find ourselves disappointed in the position we’re in. The immediate response to this is to try to find reason for why we’re not where we want to be. By placing the fault on things outside of ourselves, we relieve ourselves of the responsibility, ultimately not addressing the problem and instead fueling the stagnation.
