Pay More. Whine Less. Live Like A Bad-Ass.

You get what you pay for. If you make the choice to pay for 300 movie channels and a fancy cable box that records more videos than you can watch in the day, then you shouldn’t complain when your entrepreneurial dreams fizzle and crash.

You got what you were really looking for — a fun time .

If you make the choice to invest in get-rich-quick schemes and online tactics for doing less work but magically making more money, then you shouldn’t complain when you hit a wall that working less can’t solve.

You got what you really looking for — lazy living.

If you make the choice to not hire a coach or invest in smart consultants who can help you strategize your way towards exponential growth, then you shouldn’t complain when your business continues to flatline and valuable team members leave to work for somebody else with more imagination.

You got exactly what you were looking for — nothing.

Good help isn’t free. Good ideas are not free. Good strategy isn’t free.

The best things in life require an investment of time and money and emotions. The amount you invest has an impact on the results you can expect.

Cheap help will usually deliver cheap labor. That’s what they’re paid to do.

Talented, wise instructors come at a higher price. Because they also come with higher rewards and better results and bigger dreams.

You get exactly what you pay for.

If you’re paying for paupers and expecting a prince you’re just being delusional. And its hurting your chances of being massively successful.

Pay more. Whine less. Live like a bad-ass.
