Entrepreneurs Create Amazing Opportunities

Entrepreneurialism isn't just about starting your own business. It's about creating amazing opportunities and dream scenarios for yourself. In this episode, Andy Frisella and Vaughn Kohler tell the story behind The MFCEO Project and share tips for how you can motivate successful people to work with you.

Tip #1:  Work With Before You Work For

According to Andy and Vaughn, it's important to find a way to work with a successful person naturally--don't force it.  Find some way to offer a service or provide value to that person--without a price tag or strings attached.  If you do this, you build goodwill for the future.

Tip #2:  Prioritize the Personal Over the Professional

Too many people who want to get the attention of successful men and women see those individuals as means to an end.  They have a professional agenda or axe to grind.  But you can create amazing opportunities for yourself by treating the success person as exactly that--a person.  Be genuinely interested in who they are, not what they can do for you.

Tip #3:  Already be working on your own shit

Just as the man with a bunch of women around him at the bar is attractive to other women, you'll be attractive to successful entrepreneurs if you already have your own shit going.  Don't wait around hoping a successful entrepreneur is going to let you help them with their projects or businesses.  Start your own projects.  Even if you fail, the successful person sees that you have initiative.

These Insights and More!

In addition to these insights, Andy and Vaughn talks about other important things to help you create amazing opportunities:

  • The importance of treating personal assistants with kindness
  • Paying your dues before expecting a payoff
  • Becoming a student of the person and business you want to partner with
  • And the most important point of all:  Know exactly how you can provide value to the successful person and create a job description for which you are the ideal candidate!

    What makes your work worthwhile? Is it only worldwide influencers who make 9-figures that should feel good about themselves & their lives? Or can you feel great about life if you're a blue collar worker, a teacher, or someone who doesn't even earn $45,000 in income? Whether it's people who think "happiness is the new rich" or people who equate being famous with being impactful, there's a lot of confusion out there about how to evaluate the worth of a job & the value of a human life.
