Mentoring in Business — What a Billionaire Taught Me at 17 Years Old

Mentoring in Business — What a Billionaire Taught Me at 17 Years Old


– Today I wanna share what
a billionaire taught me when I was 17 years old. (electronic music) I was really, really
fortunate to have a mentor that was a billionaire when I was younger. And I really wish that I
took this advice back then instead of not taking it, or
perhaps not even realizing it. So I wanna share that with you today. My mentor said to me one day, “Scott, as an entrepreneur, “your job is to be able to
sit with your feet on the desk “as much as possible.” And at the time I didn’t really get it. I didn’t really kind of
think too much into it. But what I realized is
that, as entrepreneurs, it’s our job to do the 1% or
2% that nobody else can do. It’s about being able
to leverage our time, leverage our money, leverage our energy and be able to do as little as possible so that we can think. Do the thing that nobody else can do. Do the thing that would
cost $100,000 an hour to be able to hire for. And a lot of the time, as entrepreneurs, we don’t do that. We do things because they’re easy, or we’ve always done them. We don’t delegate because
we don’t know how. We don’t outsource because we’re afraid. We’re perfectionists sometimes. And that perfectionism will
really kill your ability to actually grow your business. So the next that you’re hustling, the next time that you’re at the office, and you’re doing all the things that you think you need to do in order to be able to get ahead, think back to what that
billionaire mentor said to me. Because since I’ve
adopted that into my life, over the past year, my life has changed, and I believe the same
change can occur for you. I’ll see you soon. So if you enjoyed this content
and you want more of it make sure you go ahead and subscribe. And if you want other
entrepreneurs just like you to be able to also access this
information, this knowledge, make sure you go ahead
and share it with someone that means the most to you. Remember, as entrepreneurs, it’s our job to be able to help other
entrepreneurs continue to elevate, allowing us to evolve
society and evolve our world. I’ll see you next time, bye. (electronic music)
