That’s probably one of the most common questions I get from YouTube. That Dan how do I start with no money? How do I get started when I am in high school? How do I get started when I’m in my 20’s. Or what should I do, I have limited resources? When you have no money, how do you get started? Very simple, you get a job. Get a job. You need some money coming in to do anything. You wanna improve your skills? You wanna buy that book? You wanna get an education? You need money.
Even to survive, just to eat, you need money. You can’t just wait around and watch a video and bitch and complain and say oh what should I do? Do something, get a fucking job. I don’t care what job it is, just to get some money coming in. A little bit of money, nothing wrong with that. I was working in a supermarket, making minimum wage. Washing fucking, like cleaning toilets and stacking cans on the shelves. I went through that period of time, what’s wrong with that? You cannot just say oh I got so much pride, I’m gonna be a businessman. Get a job. You can’t even get a job to forget being an entrepreneur.
Do that first. Then, in your spare time, a side hustle. On the side, then you can start something on the side. Now, if you have not watched my other videos on high-income skills. Make sure you watch that. In that video, I talk about the importance of high-income skills. Now, what is a high-income skill? I define a high-income skill is a skill that can make you $10,000 or more per month. It is not a business, it is a skill set that you can develop. That you can sell, you can offer to the marketplace in exchange for money. You are trading hours for dollars, however, you’re trading hours for high dollars. And I give you plenty of examples in that video, so I’m not gonna go into that here.
You can go here to watch that. So, in your spare time. You’re working your day job, whatever it is that you do. Nighttime, you develop your high-income skill. You start earning and earning more money. When your high-income skill. Let’s say you’re making $2K a month from your job, $2K a month. And, in your spare time, you’re learning and developing a high-income skill. Whatever it is, the skill that you choose to develop. Then as your high-income skills producing making you more money. It could be $2,000, $3,000, $4,000. Then, you can quit your job, and now just pursue this full time.
Get it up to the $5, $6, $10, $15K a month. From there, you’re making money, you’re paying the bills. You are eating, it’s a good idea to eat. You are taking care of your family, you’ve got a roof over your head, you’re making a good living, a decent living. Then from there, if you want to, you can think about if you wanna start a business. What is it, other options that you can pursue? But, you need to get to that point first. The problem is, with you guys, watching videos on YouTube.
You see all these people talking about business. You want to get to this point overnight. Or you want to get to this point without going through these steps. It doesn’t fucking work and this paralyzes you. Because from where you are to where you wanna go. You’re making fucking no money, you wanna buy a Rolls Royce. Give me a break, who the fuck are you? You need to go from here. Just get a job. Let’s just go from here to here. Get a job making a $1,000, $2,000 a month. From there, side hustle. High income skill, go to $2,000, $3,000, $4,000, $5,000, $10,000. Get to that $100K a year, $200K a year.
Now you are at a different place. From there, you start your business. You grow, your market, your sale. Then from there, you scale with your team. You get closer and closer. And then you do invest. Now you invest, you have your money work for you. Don’t ask questions at this level, when you’re at this level. Ask questions at this level, and go through this first. The problem is, with social media, that you don’t know how to filter. You don’t know how to think independently, and you don’t know what is the right advice for you at this given time for you.
And that’s why you’re confused. That’s why you’re because everybody’s saying different things and you don’t know okay what’s the right thing for me? What is the right thing for you is from here. If this is where you’re starting or if you’re here then take the advice from this. And then utilize exactly what I’m teaching you. Go to that next level, and the next level, and then eventually. If you’re fucking good, and you’re persistent you’ll get to here someday. But you’re not gonna get there overnight.
So, don’t daydream about oh people on Instagram. They are driving this car, they go on their vacation, they’re living in their big mansion or whatever. And you’re making like nothing. Don’t do that, don’t do that. Start with here, get that fucking job. A baby step, as long as you’re getting closer. Every single month, every single year, you’re getting closer to your goal, you’re doing fucking good. Does that make sense? Comment below.
It’s the best because there’s an invested interest. Or even a subscription model. Have them pay on a monthly basis, which is, I love that model, paid events, subscription. All of those ways you can your customer funds your business. And you get that going first. And you prove your model. Once you have a proven model, then you can take it to the dolphins or even the fish. They say you know what, I’ve got a good thing going on. I’ve done as much as I could with my ability. I’ve got it to this point. But now I’ve got the proven thing, I want to scale.
Now when you talk to the sharks, when you talk to the dolphins. They’re more likely to listen to you and say, hey, you know what, hmmm. You’ve got a good thing going on. You’ve already got revenue, they love to see, before they even make the damn thing, you’re making money. Before you even do anything, you’ve got reoccurring coming in every single month. Hey, this guy, not so bad after all. Maybe he’s a decent business, maybe he’s got half a brain. Maybe let’s bet on this guy.
That’s what I’m talking about, that how you. It’s never about the money. Money goes to the people who don’t need it. Money goes to the people who know how to multiply. It is not a lack of money, it’s lack of, it’s you, it’s you lacking the ability to attract money. I’ll say that again, it’s not about a lack of money. There’s so much money out there. Banks, investors, they are flooded with cash, they want to put their money out there. Because every single bit of money that’s sitting in a bank, they’re not putting to work, it’s costing them money.
They want to invest in good deals and good business. But the problem is they’re so few of them out there. There’re so few of them out there. When you approach them when you have the right mindset, the right skill. They would fund your deal. Your customers would fund your deal. This just makes sense, comment below. So don’t be telling me, I don’t have the money to expand my business, I don’t have the money to start a business, because you’re a lousy business person, that’s why, so think about that.
