So, i just recently received my latest copy of Inc. magazine July/August issue w/Damon Jonn creator of Fubu and one of the sharks on Shark Tank. The cover story was all about how he did it.
There were 3 major golden nuggest dropped in the first paragraph of the article.
1) He doesn’t invest in companies, he invest in people
2) He looks for those who’ve failed not once but several times
3) He looks for problems solvers
HMMM, Does any of this sound familiar
So, that got me to thinking. Since being online and trying to figure out that space the one thing I hear from those who’ve made it and having tremendous success is that people join others who they know, like and trust. (Damon’s 1st point) It really has nothing to do with the company however the real question becomes how do we get someone to join us? Well, my friends the answer is real simple….BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.
HOW? By reaching out, saying hello, getting to know the person. People will tell you most of what you need to know if you just have a conversation. It will take time so don’t expect to be a millionaire overnight.
TIP: Want to know how to lose someone…say hi and drop your link……DON’T DO IT!
Have you failed? Yes or No. If you’ve failed do you get back up, dust yourself off and start again or do you give up on yourself and your dreams. Remember this, failing is part of the process. If your not failing your not having success. (Damon’s 2nd point) So, keep failing but get back up.
TIP: YOU ARE WORTHY!
Remember that your a problem solver even when people are unaware they have an issue. As you start to build that relationship you will have a better understanding on how to solve your potential customers problem. (Damon’s 3rd point)
Yes, we all want to make money, that is our ultimate goal but I’ve learned two valuable lessons:
==> Help others and yours will come
==> This is not a get rich quick scheme. It will take time but it will be WORTH IT!
