From Dead Broke To Millionaire: How A Former Carpet Cleaner Turned His Life Around Thanks To A Marketing Strategy From A Friend
I was a broke carpet cleaner living off credit cards and working 10-12 hours a day for months at a time. My problem was that I didn’t know how to market myself and I didn’t know what my business problem was. A friend from high school, named Pat, called me up and said he wanted to go jet skiing with me. He told me that the guy who owned the jet skis was a multi-million dollar real estate investor, and that if I wanted to talk to him more about business, he would take me out on another fishing trip as payment for his time!
When Pat called, it sounded too good to be true. But after thinking about it for a few days, I decided that it might be worth trying out his strategy. So I went ahead and made an appointment with the jet ski owner.
After talking with him for a little while, I realized that my carpentry skills were not really what this guy was looking for in a customer. However, after hearing about my experience cleaning carpets (and seeing some of the dirtier jobs that he does), he offered me a job as an assistant manager of one of his properties! And guess what? Within two days of quitting my job as a carpet cleaner, I had become a millionaire overnight thanks to marketing!
An Effective Way To Systemize Your Business And Succeed
There are a lot of things that you need to do in order to be successful as an entrepreneur. One of the most important things is to learn how to systemize your business. This can be a daunting task, but if you’re willing to read and take action on the information that you find, it can be very beneficial.
One book that I read was called “The E-Myth Revisited.” This book taught me about how to create a turnkey operation for my business and systemize everything so it would be easy for me to manage.
The one thing that I learned from this book was that it’s very important to focus on marketing if I want my business to be successful. Without proper marketing, it’s difficult if not impossible for businesses to grow and thrive.
Last but not least, I wanted to mention Gary Halbert’s newsletter which talked about how to “clone” yourself so you can reach many people with your message quickly and effectively. This approach is something that I plan on taking advantage of in the future.
By “cloning” myself, I will be able to spread my message much faster and more efficiently than ever before.
