Section 1: Tips And Info For Getting Started
Instructor Introduction

Think of this as a 9 day course, not a 9 hour course. If you plan it out over 9 days, you have a much better chance of retaining the information and it gives to time to take your business from idea to concept. Overnight successes take 30 years. You can set aside 9 days to get a strong foundation.

Review the course each time it asks you. If you review the course at each point, then I know which parts are good and bad and where to make changes. If you rate the course at the end and just say its a bad course, then I will think the whole thing is bad when in reality there may have been only a couple of sections that changed your idea of the whole course.

You have to become frequent before you become good. When I give little homework's for the night, don't blow those off as unimportant as I assure you everything I say was a vital part and step to my success.


Starting your own business is the easiest part of the entrepreneur journey, maintaining a business is more difficult but I give tips and tricks on how I stayed net positive from day 1.

Being your own boss is AWESOME, but you are going to give up working 40 hours a week to working 80+ hours a week. Good thing about that is if you start a business you are really passionate about, the time flies by way faster than you want it to and it really isn't work, its enjoyable.

Starting is business with $0 is absolutely 100% possible, people do it daily. Growing your business to $100k your first year is 100% possible as I am proof but 100% not guaranteed. You have to put in the work, time, blood, sweat, tears, more tears, and you have to stick with it when you can't see the dots connecting ahead of you. Push past the humps when everyone else gives up and you will find the freedom in owning your own company.

Section 2: Truly Believing It Is Possible and Self Motivation

Why you need to believe it is possible. Why daily self motivation is 80% of it, and who Eric, Grant, and Gary are.


  • Whats Your Why -
  • Who is Grant Cardone -
  • How Grant Cardone Made It -
  • You sleep like your rich. I'm awake like I'm broke
  • "I don't have time" is the biggest lie to yourself

  • Who is Gary Vaynerchuk -
  • Entrepreneurship and the market -
  • We are not really good at knowing what we want, and we are quick to say this sucks. THAT is where the opportunity is.
  • If you live for the weekends and vacations, your shit is broken.
  • Self awareness

Believe you can and you are halfway there. – Theodore Roosevelt


You have to start getting motivated to go on this journey and believe it is possible, but it will take everything you have. Spend the rest of your night watching various videos from ET, GC and GV. Find good ones and watch them later or listen to free audio books from these three on your way to work. Take in as many helpful nuggets as possible and see why they are the top of the top.

Section 3: Finding The Right Idea To Get To $100K +

Your idea needs to be something you are passionate about.

Finding A Niche That Can Actually Get You To 100K

Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines. - Robert H. Schuller

  • Think about what goods or services would improve your life.
  • Start making lists of problems that need solving
  • Write down all your ideas
  • Listen to people who complain instead of tuning them out
  • Ask people what bugs them
Section 4: Finding Where To Source Your Product Or Service

Finding a reputable vendor can be difficult but once you build that foundation, you are set for the life of your business.

      • build parts for drones that are a rush or too expensive to buy
  • Make it Yourself
    • Is your business selling a product you can make from home? If so, looking into making them yourself in your spare time starting out.

  • Find someone selling the product you want to and ask if they will fulfill your orders or give reseller pricing
  • They need to have a large amount of ratings 30000-50000 to be a possible candidate
  • Email fulfillment centers that stock your product for multiple companies and ask if you can become a dealer
    • Wynit
    • DHGate
    • Doba
  • Depending on your business idea, these my not work for you.

Some manufactures will sell direct, but they will require you to stock the product and may have a MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity)

  • Is the business you want to start a product that the massive retailer Costco currently sells
    • Then -
    • Now -

When You Feel Like Quitting, Think About Why You Started


Whatever your product or service you have decided on offering, research manufactures, distributors, and wholesalers of that product. See where you can dropship it from and how you can get initial inventory if you choose to go that route.
