How I Became an Entrepreneur Just by Saying It out Loud a Whole Bunch

Being an entrepreneur is a mindset. Something you have to put out into the world every moment you can. I achieved my entrepreneurship status through straight up hustling and telling as many people as I could. The trick is to treat every person you meet as a potential networking opportunity. See them as tools to get you what you want, if you will.

To get the word out as efficiently as possible, I use Instagram. I changed my account name to “intrepid_leader” and took a photo of myself in front of a public restroom mirror at LAX airport for my profile. You could also snap a pic in the middle of getting your pump on at the gym. Entrepreneurs are always taking photos of themselves at airports and gyms as a sign that they’re crushing it in the real world. If you happen to find an airport with a gym, even better. I’m already up to 115 followers. So blessed.

To maintain entrepreneur energy, a majority of my time is spent slapping inspirational quotes onto photos of well-dressed alpha males, like Christian Bale from American Psycho with a phrase like, “I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.” Use a quote that will really inspire your audience and use like 20 hashtags to let everyone know that you grind harder than everyone else.

Once in a while I post a photo of myself standing in front of a Tesla. Don’t worry, if you’re like me and can’t afford one, just keep an eye out for one in the streets. Whenever I spot a parked Model S, I snap a quick selfie in front of it before anyone sees me. That’s called hustle.

Something us internet entrepreneurs always say is, “you don’t need talent, you need hard work.” Maybe it’s the Adderall talking but as someone who doesn’t have talent, this quote really speaks to me. It inspires me to put in 110% effort at the multi-level marketing company I work for.

And always remember: The Wolf of Wall Street is a Christmas movie.
