There’s No Way Around Hard Work

Sometimes we fall for the promise of a shortcut

Hacks are temporary

I’ve bought some of those older courses on Google ads but I didn’t find them useful. When everyone starts using the same hacks and tactics, they no longer work. In fact, when you try to go for the shortcut, you actually end up wasting your time; which will only set you back.

Skills get you what you want

Look, one thing I can share from personal experience is that building a business or career is HARD. It takes a lot of time and energy to learn new skills so you can provide value.

Do work you’re proud of

You can overcome all of these challenges by focusing on the work. I know, this is the least exciting advice in the world. But this really works.
