As with everything timeless, the habit of “Margin” is easy to start and easy to stop. But the magic is in the consistency.
If you can go for a walk for 30 minutes no phone no disruption every single day, you will make more money.
If you can carve out 1 hour a day every single day without distraction to read, write, and think — you will be 100 times happier and make more money to boot.
Even something as simple as (GASP) leaving your desk for lunch.

I know this isn’t normal for a blog about growing businesses. But perhaps the best advice can give you right now is to simply pause and ask “Why?”
Answer it all the way.
If you’re going to grow something, anything, grow it for a REASON. Never “just because.”
Margin makes sure the other buckets in life stay full, not just the business bucket. And special bonus — when that happens, the business grows MUCH healthier.
That is all.
Try it, let me know how it goes 👊
P.S. We sold out our event this Friday in 6 hours. I’m sorry if you were unable to get in… the next one is in November. It is likely, the people in attendance will have harvested 6-figures or more by then, directly tied to the contents of what we are teaching Friday.
Enjoy the rest of the week, let’s get it!
