You’re Paid for What You Know or What You Can Collect

Do you know it’s easier to get paid $83,000 a month than it is to get paid $83,000 a year? Getting paid under $100,000 a year is tough. I know, because I used to make less than 6 figures. In fact, I had trouble paying my rent of $275 back in the day. Nobody knows better than me what it’s like to have no money left over at the end of the month. You never forget being broke.

How did I go from 5 figures to 9 figures? I learned how to collect money. No, I don’t make money—the government does that.

A dollar bill is just a piece of paper, like a sticky note. Can you collect a million sticky notes? If you can collect a million sticky notes, you can collect a million dollars. In life, you will get money because you either know something or because you can collect something.

People Who Get Paid Because They Know:

Surgeons: Do you know how to do orthopedic knee surgery? This is the type of thing you need to know if you want to make $400K a year with your knowledge. Invasive Cardiologists, Urologists, Radiologists—we need these people in society, but if you aren’t willing to go through years of medical school, you won’t be one.

Lawyers: Do you know all the ins and outs of the laws? Are you able to help out big corporations with their legal troubles? Are you willing to go through years of law school? This is the kind of knowledge that gets you paid.

Blockchain Programmers: If you know how to hack over the Ethereum network, you will get paid over $300K. Very few people understand how to code, develop backends, and bring solutions to companies with new technologies.

Surgeons, lawyers, blockchain programmers, these are the type of people who know something that others will pay big dollars for.

People Who Get Paid Because They Can Collect:

Salespeople: This includes entrepreneurs, business owners, people in retail…basically anyone who doesn’t have specialized knowledge like surgeons, lawyers, or blockchain programmers do.

If you don’t know, you better learn how to collect.

In order to be a collector of money, you have to learn to ask, “Who’s Got My Money?”

This question will eventually confront you with the fact that you’ll need to close people on products or services for money.

I’m a collector of money—and you can be too. Get on my 7-figure Sales Certification today.
