If you’ve been around here for a while (and hopefully noticed), I’m currently walking you through me building a business from the ground-up. From the outside looking in, the changes have been small but, they’ve all been made for reasons. Now you can understand those reasons and use them for whatever you’re doing – or planning to do.
A long time ago (more years than I’d like to admit), before I knew anything about Game and making money, I knew I wanted to be successful.
I bought books, courses and entrepreneur magazines looking for a way out (the internet was in its infancy back then). I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what “out” was, but I always felt a certain kind of way about working for other people. I got that from my father, I’m pretty sure of it.
After 2 failed businesses I was introduced to the Hustle layer of The Game by a gentleman named, Kal. As far as the stereo-type of a street Hustler, Kal was none of those things. He was laid-back, wasn’t “thuggish”, he was friendly, funny but very focused. When he came around, you just automatically liked him; you felt no menace from him at all. He had a glow about himself. I later learned Players in The Game called this radiance, an “aura”.
Kal was the first physical example of success that I could actually speak to and pick his brain. He was able to do things HIS way – and that’s what I wanted for myself for many, many years.
Kal laced me with basic Game. And I do mean basic; just enough to point me in a specific direction. He left the rest for me to figure out. I didn’t realize it at the time (and didn’t care), I was just happy to speak one-on-one with someone who knew what they were doing.
Looking back, I think I learned way more by observing him than what I picked up during our conversations.
That encounter is what started me down the Hustler path. It was a path filled with ups, downs, twists, turns and stress. My first 2 and a half years was ROUGH. I struggled. But I was able to replace a regular job… barely.
As people started noticing my drive and ambition, I started meeting other street Hustler who laced me with more Game. Some of it legit, some of it just completely wrong.
Then I met more people; people with legitimate businesses who also taught me things. And this went on and on for years until I reached the height of my street Hustle Game. I did very well. By street Hustle standards, I would have been considered a “Boss Player”. But I refused to become an actual Boss (manager of a team). That was a huge mistake on my part... but we live, we learn.
So I went from broke to making serious money – what changed? I changed. They way I looked at money and business changed the way I thought. The new way I started thinking altered my behavior and decisions for the better.
When I wrote my first book, Unlocking the Small Business Game (originally, The Hustler's Manual), I wanted to give the average person a “playbook” so to speak. I wanted to give the sincere reader a means to clear away misconceptions and provide an entirely different Perspective on the way making money works. I would like to think I accomplished that.
In that book, and in blog posts and podcasts on this website, I’ve shared things to do and how to do them. Now it’s time to take them to an advanced level. It’s time to understand WHY they work and how to get consistent results.
These WHYs are what I’m just going to call, Hustler Logic. It’s the operating system that runs the “software” – it’s the salt that you put in the oats to lead a horse to water AND make it drink – it’s the wizard behind the curtain in the movie, The Wizard of Oz.
Hustler Logic is for the serious entrepreneur (Hustler). It’s for the person who’s ready to get away from the “kiddies table” and sit with the grown-ups. I’ve waited patiently for over 3 years to teach this; and I’m glad I did. Now that many of you have a grasp of The Game itself, we can skip the basics and get straight to business (figuratively and literally).
If you’re like I was; trying to understand how to “get out”, then I strongly suggest you get ready for this class. The class itself is mindset training. I’m going to provide a detailed break-down on what I was taught, what I learned and what I still use today. I use it because it works and it gets results! This class will be online so you can learn in the comfort of your own home.
The Game itself has what’s called a “light side” (no manipulation) and a “dark side” (psychological manipulation). Hustler Logic sits in a unique spot between these 2 extremes; it’s the “grey area” – the center of 2 sides of the same coin. Like I said, this information is for grown-folks. Play time is about to be over.
If you find this interesting then just stay tuned in. Soon I’ll be giving more details so you can decide if this information can benefit you.
More Game next week. Until then, stay in motion.
