10 lessons I learned shutting the business down

  1. Filler content is just that. Filler. 1 killer video does better than 10 fillers.
  2. Everyone has insecurities and is unsure of what they’re doing – no one is an expert.
  3. A year is a short time to take off and learn and get better if it makes a 10 year career happen.
  4. Do things today that you’ll thank yourself for in a year.
  5. Sometimes things take a little longer to grow or hit your goals, but that doesn’t matter.
  6. Growth is made in the rest period – take more time off.
  7. There are no shortcuts – if you want to get good, you have to spend most of your time being bad and learning.
  8. Your value as a human being is not tied to your achievements – we’re taught that it is and that’s a recipe for unhappiness.
  9. You already know what you need to do next, you’re either just not listening or you’re ignoring it for another reason.
  10. Fear and uncomfortableness and your limits are where your next goal and growth is
