Always try to get on a call. Take 5 minutes out of your day to someone who has reached out to you.Find out what things you don’t like to do rather than focusng on what you think you like to do.The majority “wantrapreneurs” are creating lists, hedging. As opposed to being self-sufficient and doing it themselves.
After showering, Swish yells “I’m back”, every morning. As he’s leaving for the office, he knocks on his neighbour’s door. Swish shared that he focuses him on the start of his day. “It pumps me up.”

The 4 or 5 people closest to you shape who you are. Surround yourself with the right people, those have to be the winners. (Those you can) learn infinitely from and (people where you could) never be able to get to the end of what they can teach you. Elliot Robinson is a great example. An immigrant from Sweden who became Gary Vee’s right-hand social media guru and started Dunk.
