More clarity equals more success
I know this is a topic I talk about quite a bit. And the reason I do is because of the importance of it. More clarity is the key to anything else and will help anyone on their self improvement journey.
It’s so simple that it’s difficult. Isn’t that crazy?
I’m looking at my social media yesterday on my rest day. And what I noticed was my profiles were starting to grow more than ever. And I’m researching what I started to do differently. A light bulb went off in my head. I’m receiving more clarity on who I am and what I do and this is why it’s growing.
Before, I would almost try to hide what I did for work. But then I realized working is a part of my journey and there’s nothing wrong with providing for my family. So I started to post content that I do at work because it also goes hand and hand with what my business is. See at work, I coach people on sales all of the time. It only makes sense to continue to talk about it on my social media platforms. And going to work is a part of me and my daily routine.
I was being truthful about my day. It’s so simple it’s insane. Behind the camera, I’m literally being myself and the more I am myself, the more engagement, money, and success I achieve. This is crazy how it works. My video getting the most buzz now is me at a networking event networking with other business owners. This is something I am attempting to go to so I can be known more in my area. The more known I am in my area, the greater chance I have at those big time magazines such as Forbes.
You can gain the type of success I’m getting. You only have to be more of yourself and you’ll see so much growth. What do you like to do? Who are you? Show it all. The more you show, the better off you’ll be.
How much clarity do you have in who you are?

Greetings start the sale!
Selling is an important part of communication. And not to mention, it’s a high income skill which could make you tons of money! And money helps you do anything you want to do in life.
But the greeting starts the sale! A big part of selling is attention to detail and this part is overlooked. Now yes, you can make some money without having a charismatic greeting, but a great greeting could mean a big difference from your client coming back to you or not.
I say a large part of a greeting is name exchange. If I can know your name, I think of you as a friend. The only people who use my first name are my friends, family, and my wife when she’s not so happy. So when I use the client or the customer’s name, I am able to be more personable.
Another part is making them feel welcomed fast. If someone comes into one of my locations, we call it three seconds, three feet. My sales representatives have three seconds to greet a customer or client when they come into a location. It’s important for them to lay out the red carpet. And the next part is three feet. My sales representatives have three feet to run up to the customers or clients coming into the door. And I know I keep going between customers and clients, but clients are much better. A customer may come once, but a client will come back.
The last step with the greeting step is a mindset. Great customer service and sales go hand and hand. But you must have the mindset to make some money too. My representatives don’t ask for the sale, then having a strong greeting will have people come back to them, but it won’t have the business make any money.
You can have the best customer service in the world, but if your business isn’t making any money, then you are gonna be outta business quickly. Remember to always follow these three steps when selling to any of your clientele. Because when you have a great greeting the customer will come back to you over and over again. And this is what we want. We want clients who will stay with us until the day they pass from this planet.

Say Hi to Susan!
Networking events are a time to connect with other people. This networking event I went to in Kennett Square PA had some of the same people I ran into at other events before. When you start to get known in your area, people start to see you in the same places.
Do you want to get on that Forbes Magazine? You have to get known locally. And what’s a better way to get known locally than to go to networking events near you? There isn’t a better way.
I met some amazing people such as Susan here. Susan has her own online shop to sell all natural products. Which is a good thing. Do you know how many chemicals are being placed in the products you use? My wife and I try to go as close to nature as we can. She creates toothpaste made of coconut oil and baking soda.
There are plenty of benefits of this, but I’m not going to go into the benefits of all natural goods to ones with chemicals in there. What I liked was meeting with good people. When you meet with good people, there are so many things that open up. When someone saw me recording this video with Susan, they offered to give me two ideas to speak at two events. They are going to reach out to me with two more gigs.
Get known locally! I’m not going to keep saying it, but you see the benefits of it. And if you need help getting known locally or how to do it. You can learn in my monthly newsletter.

Let me see your smile
It’s hard to be positive in a world of negativity. 95% of what comes into your mind throughout the day is negative. This can affect the way you may look at the world around you.
Just smile. There are so many positive benefits of showing those pearly whites. I know it’s difficult to do in a world of negativity, but I promise it’s worth it.
Whenever I smile, I immediately feel happy. And this really shows resilience in the face of adversity. Although I've been through what feels like 15 lives in the midst of one life as a kid, I still continue to show my pearly whites.
Not to brag or anything, but I’ve only been to the dentist once! And the dentists were so happy to see I have beautiful teeth for someone who has only been there once. At work, someone tried to ask me to work for Colgate. But even if I had a crooked smile, I still would smile. This is the first thing people see when they look at me. And when my teeth are out and I’m smiling, it makes them feel warm about me and okay with approaching me.
This is the most contagious sickness. It has more power than COVID. When one person smiles or laughs, everyone else does. Whenever I’m with my friends and we laugh and smile, everyone is laughing with us. I just want to spread this love and positivity throughout everyone. When I'm laughing, I’m not thinking about anything else, but trying to breathe because I’m dying of laughter.
When you smile, there will be endorphins released promoting you to feel happy, relaxed and overall happy. Continue to manage your stress and enhance your mental clarity with your beautiful smile and positivity.
Let me know how smiling makes you feel today?

Navigating the challenges of starting on a self-development journey
Self development has become extremely crucial for professional success. No matter what you do, you still will need to work on yourself harder than you work for someone else. Start the journey with excitement! Even with the challenges, you still have to take time to appreciate how fun the journey will be.
I’m going to express some of the challenges I faced and provide insights on how I overcame them. Your challenges may be different than mine, but there will be a basic premise to this, so pay attention.
One of the significant challenges I dealt with is the scarcity of role models who share similar backgrounds and experiences. I’m looking at the top and I can only name about two African American motivational speakers ranked extremely high. Eric Thomas and Les Brown. And both of them had to work their a** off to be successful. So this had me looking up to not only these two but Tony Robbins as a role model. To beat the best, you have to know what they do. I use the internet to swipe his habits and double his efforts.
Another challenge I had to deal with recently is imposter syndrome. I felt like what gives me the right to charge anyone or talk to anyone about personal development. But I’ve been through the ringer and made it out. If I can help, I have to help. It doesn’t matter how established I am as the greatest motivational speaker ever. And it doesn’t matter who believes it. I believe it. So I have work to do.
And then there’s the elephant in the room. Yes, I am Afro latino. But I’m still black so sometimes there are privileges we have to work harder for. They are still attainable but there’s always someone looking at the color of my skin and judging. I’m going to create opportunities for my race and create a Wall Street for everyone to be successful.

Create clarity in your business
While creating my business, I have faced many unique challenges. Challenges most people will give up on in the very beginning. It took a different type of grit from myself to want to be an entrepreneur.
Among all of the challenges, seeking clarity was the most essential for me to drive success. I’m going to talk about what I went through to achieve my clarity and how to do it. And my newsletter shows regular tips and resources tailored to this entrepreneurial journey and the tips I went through to receive clarity.
First, I had to define my purpose and vision. I clearly want to be the greatest motivational speaker ever. When I was growing up in the darkness of my family's past, I know speakers such as Tony Robbins and Eric Thomas inspired me to be something better than what I was. I always thought, “I could do that.”
Next, I had to realize who I was going to talk to. Most people’s ideal target at first was them before they found the vehicle to get them to where they want to go. My demographic is young minority men who are struggling mentally and want to be better in the corporate world or the entrepreneurial world, but don’t know how to get there. I am giving them high income skills.
After this was very important for me. This took years for me to do this. And that is to develop a product or service that goes with my niche. I offer my book and my newsletter for these professionals so far and a small Mastermind group too. And my brand identity came with this. I just had to be myself and my brand naturally came out.
Creating clarity is very important in your business, and these few tips will help create this for you. But not only clarity in business, but clarity in your life. Do you wanna get that promotion? Do you wanna get that girl? It all comes down to the same tips.

Balance your dreams and reality
Today’s world is faster than ever. I often found myself juggling multiple aspirations. With social media, it is constantly throwing ideas at their viewers on different trends.
The trend growing extreme popularity at the moment is the Home Depot selfie girl. This trend is reminding everyone that success isn’t solely defined by entrepreneurial ventures and unconventional career paths. It is essential to embrace the value of pursuing your dreams while maintaining a 9-5 job.
The Home Depot selfie trend is showing aspiring entrepreneurs and women taking photos symbolizing their pursuit of unconventional paths. Don’t let this diminish the value of traditional employment. I’m here to tell you that it is okay to work a 9-5 job.
It’s called the “Chicken Entrepreneur” approach. It’s when you wait until your side hustle makes twice as much as your 9-5 job and then you quit your 9-5. I love the idea of 9-5 jobs. Currently, I still work a 9-5 job. It provides financial stability and security while I build a strong foundation for my dreams. I use the income from my job to invest in personal growth, education and resources. Plus keep a roof over my head while I build up Winnerz Win LLC.
Not to mention, my 9-5 job helped build skills and my network. Due to my job, I was able to put my selling abilities into practice and now put this into my second book. I was also able to meet some of my mentors and big business owners like the ones who run the company I work for.
It also taught me work-life harmony. I’m able to learn how to maximize the time after work and even sometimes during work to focus on my dreams and help a business grow. I only get 4 hours max per day outside of work to be productive. It’s all about what I do with these four hours.
There’s no need to be ashamed of your 9-5 job when you are working towards your true dreams. It’s a necessary step to success.
Shout out where you work while you work towards your goals.
