Everyone wants to talk about branding, but do you even know what having a brand means?
There are a lot of things that go into the building of a brand, and regardless if you like it or not everyone has now become some level of a brand. Partly in thanks to the world of social media, and the accessibility that the internet has given us to both create and consume content, everyone is becoming a brand. So the first thing you need to realize is that right now exactly how everything stands, you are a brand!
I have spent the last 33 days circling the globe meeting business owners and entrepreneurs from all over the world, and there are a lot of people that have the exact same problem. It doesn’t matter the business that you have, the industry you are in, or where you want to grow your brand personally, everyone has the same problem.
Another coaching success story. Thabo Eric Mashale was a guy who drove me to the airport with a crappy car, and 1 year after coaching with us he has 5 cars now, runs companies in Cape Town and Johannesburg, owns a beautiful home in Midrand and wants to move in Dainfern. He has his own driver so he can network with his clients and started another business which is a networking group. He is black and did not do it with BEE government. I am so proud of him and he is now a huge success story because of my coaching. Please share this amazing success story. #CoachingWorks#MillionaireUnderdog #FamilyFirst
I get so many emails and messages each day on how to handle betrayal, haters, nay-sayers and non-believers. Let me be the first to tell you that it’s not an easy thing. As Sylvester Stallone told me personally. you have to take that negative energy and sort of turn it into a driving force. People often wonder why I fight back against haters and why do I even give them attention. Well perhaps like Stallone says, I have used that fuel to drive me and not give them the satisfaction of failing. Haters are like bullies and they often either keep hating because no one ever says anything back or they hate because they can’t do it themselves and would rather see you fail because if you do, they feel better about themselves for not succeeding.
Here is the cold, hard truth. If what you are doing now has not gotten you to where you want to be, and you keep doing the same things over and over again expecting different results, that’s just plain insane.
Someone said that they heard from someone’s friend’s sister (see how crazy this is going to be) that I belittle people at events. Well, before I respond, you truly have to understand the three personalities of JT Foxx:
a. Stage JT Foxx
b. Business JT Foxx
c. Personal JT Foxx
Success is not easy. In fact, making your first $100,000 will probably be the second hardest thing you do in business. The first one is making your first million. Ironically making your second million will be one of the easiest things you do. Why is that? First of all, one of the things that suppresses success more than anything is fear. Now to succeed, you need passion. Passion is not something you can teach or put int someone, you either have it or you don’t. My key to success is not buying properties, businesses, or stocks, I have succeeded because I have invested in people. That isn’t something I invented. In fact, I simply took what other people were doing and made it better. This is a classic wealth strategy called Conceptional Implementation.
While on a recent flight I was reading Success magazine and came across an article that got me thinking…..how do you really become a great leader. Some people are just born with leadership qualities and others really have to work at it. But there is something that all leaders have the ability to do….
Make tough decisions
As a leader, boss, or manager there are always those decisions that aren’t going to be the popular choice but they have to be made. If you have the mentality that you have to be everyone’s best friend you aren’t going to be the best leader to drive everyone forward. So many people get hung up on worrying about what people will think about them and not wanting to be the “bad guy” and wanting to be everyone’s friend.
