The Quest of Laurene Powell Jobs
With student loans, multiple jobs, work-study and a small family commitment, she paid for enrollment in the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied economics, political science and French. “I know it in my core that, without that, I never would have had the opportunities that I have in my life,” she says. Education would become Emerson Collective’s seminal issue. “For the students who I work with, I understand that school is their way out,” she says. “It’s really their portal to anything larger than what they see around them. That was true for me.”

How Soccer Technology Has Evolved Since Brazil’s World Cup
The World Cup in Brazil was full of new equipment materials, big data, early iterations of wearable devices, and goal line technology. Fans were posting on social media at unprecedented rates using free WiFi, and Twitter was dabbling in sports broadcasting with nightly analyses and highlights of goals. There was even a brain wave-powered exoskeleton, which debuted during the opening ceremony when a paralyzed teenager kicked a soccer ball. In 2018, we’re living in a much more connected world: people regularly wear devices on their wrists, athletes use real-time data to make informed decisions about their training, and precision technology catches infractions the human eye might miss.

Ross Johnson - Everyone is teaching how to explode your business...
Everyone is teaching how to explode your business and grow so fast your hat will fly off your head...

But people who chase this dream are in for the most challenging road imaginable.

Fast growth is amazing, for sure.

But almost nobody will tell you about the changes you will need to go through, the mindset shifts that are required, and the energy you must put forward.

The thing is... there is nothing wrong with growing at a steady pace. You don't need a million dollar business in less than 3 months - it's okay to not rush through the process.

But if you do go for the route of EXPLOSIVE growth and have the mindset that "I will do anything to get there"....

Be prepared.

It's likely that you will... have mental breakdowns, lose yourself in the process, forget what to do when you do have free time, forget "who you really are", feel guilty about not working 24/7, sacrifice some level of heath for success, become addicted to hustling even when you don't have to, and more.

Just wanted to write you this as a reminder that while it's easy to compare yourself to others and feel behind, it's okay to go at your own pace and enjoy your life in the process.

The people you may look up to who grow super fast have dealt with some very hard things in the process.

Wether you decide to go fast or at your own pace, just remember that it's not a race. Try not to lose yourself in the process

“このように、韓国は現在社会的弱者への差別や固定観念に敏感である。
これは女性蔑視への警戒につながる。韓国には今フェミニズムの波がきてる”

“言葉にするなら「これ面白いと思ってるの?女をばかにしてる?」に近いのだろうか。
(実際これは今回の朗読劇レポに多くに書いてあった言葉である)”

“改めて書くことになるけど、オバレのミスコンイラストは韓国でも本当に人気のある素材で、
エイプリルフールエデロ新入生7人の女装イラストもみんなハートを奪われてばかりだ。

Ross Johnson - (1/5) How I created a 75K MRR business in the past...
# 1: Niching down and staying focused on our core service.

I had to start with this because it's the foundation of everything we have done.

Niching down is absolutely necessary in business. Period. And, it must be super clear.

For us, it's been organic Instagram growth. We don't run ads, we don't do Facebook, we don't do anything other than that one service.

This allowed us to become known for that which made it easy for people to recommend us to others.

In the beginning, we did a lot of custom work, different offerings, and things that delivered the same results but that made it impossible to create effective systems in our business.

Once we narrowed down our service to offering just 1 system for Instagram growth, everything changed.

If you are a service provider who wants to create a successful MRR (monthly recurring revenue) based business, you must become hyper focused.

Eliminate all distractions, find your most effective service, refine the process, put a price on it, and exclusively offer this to your clients/customers.

Having a service nailed down with a predictable pricing model allows you calculate customer lifetime value much more easily (this will help you maximize revenue).

Also, when you offer a service like this, you can create minimum commitments like 3 months, 6 months, and so on. This give you the opportunity to sign contracts, then forecast revenue for at least 90 days in the future.

The ability to forecast revenue is HUGE!

If you are a service provider who's income fluctuates from month to month, it can be really scary.

Creating these minimum commitments will really help with that and will give you the foresight you need to make better decisions on how to grow.

The first steps we took were:

1. Niche down
2. Chose and refined our best service
3. Eliminated distractions
4. Created minimum commitments
5. Tracked our revenue each month + expected future revenue
