Yo yo yo. Welcome back to the further your lifestyle podcast conversations on lifestyle passions and hustles. My name's Chris, I am your host and I'm super excited to be back here having the conversation with you. Episode 134 today, and we're diving into another article that I found on the internet, and it is actually called the stupidly simple pieces of advice that made me a millionaire. Now this is from Tim Denning. If you haven't followed Tim Denning or heard of Tim Denning, this guy's done quite a lot over the last probably decade in terms of online blogging and writing space. I guess he's got some really good articles. I've had a lot of his articles over the years and there's some really good inspiration. Some of it, you know, resonates with me really, really well. Some of it it's not really my cup of tea, but there's always a good perspective in it. Now he's come from, I believe his background was originally corporate, so there is that relevance there as well for myself, and he has been a true leader as well, and now he basically makes a living from, you know, sharing articles and writing things, in this case, on medium. So we're going to dive into that today and look this one's very interesting. I haven't gone through it in detail. I've kind of looked at it over very high level just to see what the main points are. I'm going to go through it. I'm going to discuss it with you, my thoughts. If you've got some thoughts, you can drop a comment down below. Let's get into it. All right, so literally this morning. This isn't a very big article. It's only about an eight minute read. This is on medium. I'm going to share the link in the show notes below. You can jump straight into it if you want to have a look for yourself. But essentially he's basically thinking about the mindset of what is a wealth enabler. Now I do like this about Tim. He does talk a lot about money and things like that. And the first point after intro-ing in his article he basically cuts the crap and just gets through the fluff and he gets into the pieces of advice that made himself a millionaire. Now he is a millionaire. This is what he's saying. I have no idea. But the first point is that he's saying is don't work a deal bit job forever. Now, if you don't know, deal bit is a. It's like an office cartoon, corporate life cartoon, very relevant for anyone that's working the corporate life, especially in IT. But I mean, and look, he's really not trying to throw any mud at anyone that is working a nine to five. I mean, I've worked the nine to five. There's nothing wrong with that. That's not what he's saying, but what he's. What he's really talking about is and as I brush with this I'm kind of looking at this live At some point you've got to take a risk in trying to change the way you operate. So I guess the way he's saying it is a job is a level one job or a level one way of earning money. So, early in his career, his advice is that there are levels of the world in which we work in the way we work, and a job is a level one and there's nothing wrong with playing on level one. This is what he's going on to say, but the key idea is you don't want to continue to keep playing level one. At some point you've got to take the risk in trying to play level two and level three. So what's level two? What's level three? What's level four? Well, level two is essentially when you go into freelancing or if you go into consulting or something that we would call a one person business. Level three here, he's saying, is starting a business and then level four is actually running a business with a large number of employees. Now, not everyone, as he would say here, would want to get into level four. Now I agree because there's I mean, I have my own business and I also have an employee as well, so I understand what it's like growing that and there's some sweet spots in that where you're able to hit your capacity and you're able to smooth sail. But if you want to grow, you need more time or you need more tools, or you need more processes or you need to leverage things. And that's when you start to grow a business with more people. And that isn't just smooth sailing. You know it requires a lot of work and the more we go through that journey of working and understanding, the more easy it will get. But it takes a lot of time. Now, if you figure you can start a business, you're likely to make probably this is what he's saying more money than being an employee forever. Now there is a bit of a I can't remember the actual graph for this, but for me, like I'm still not, I still have not replaced my income from working in nine to five. However, I've got more time and I've got more freedom of mind, meaning I have a better mindset and a better mental space. But I also understand that I think the ability for me to scale and grow and take an income greater than what I was earning in my previous nine to five job will come sooner and then it will start to exponentially grow quicker than what I would have been hitting or growing with from a financial standpoint in a nine to five. I worked for about nine years before taking leave and you know I was on a good salary, really really good salary. At the moment I'm now actually doing more than more revenue than I'm what I was doing working for someone else. I'm just not taking home more profit than what I was taking home as a salary. So there's going to come a point in time where it's going to supersede and totally blow it out of the water, but that's probably potentially going to take another three to four years, I think. So that's the first one. Don't work a deal bit job forever. But you know, start to look at other different levels level two, level three, level four and the book cash flow quadrant actually talks about this a lot. I really highly recommend that book as well. The next point that he goes on to talk about is the internet is a wealth amplifier, not how you might think. Okay, so I'm just skimming through this at the moment and just having a look of what he's trying to say. I think what he's really trying to say here and look, I've just brushed over this Again. You can come back and read this article yourself. But what? The ability that we have with the internet right now the time to be alive I tell you what a time to be alive I mean is we have the ability to be able to create two levels of identity when it comes to leveraging the internet Is our own personal identity, personal, digital identity, but then we can also create a persona we can create. We don't even need to show who we are in order to make money on the internet. And when we then start to overlay that with all the things that are available at our hands, like the tools such as AI, such as the ability to be able to create video, the ability to be able to advertise to anyone in their lounge room you know, when they're scrolling on their phone, wherever they are how many people take advantage of that? I mean, we have the ability to Find people with similar interests, find new ideas, build a community of our own and then gain feedback in real time and to continuously improve on that to then eventually make it thrive. And look without getting into too much detail here where the potential is is on the other side of a conversation, right, having conversations with other people online, connecting with people, growing with people, sharing with people, documenting with people and, I guess, solving other people's problems, and the rest kind of comes with it. As we start to build something, people will come. It is a bit of a cliche statement, but the internet has the ability to be able to enable that. People are making a living from YouTube. I'm not making a living from YouTube. I'm not making a living from this podcast, but if I was to go work 40, 50 hours on this podcast every week, I could definitely probably make a lot more money from it. I could definitely probably do a lot more with it, and that all comes down to my execution, my willingness, my ability to want to go do it and then being willing to go learn some of the different things I need to do in order to leverage it. So the internet can be a wealth amplifier when you apply something with people. When you apply something with the technology, when you apply an idea with a community, it will leverage or amplify it quite quickly, but it comes down to you and what you're doing about it. I hear a lot of people talk about, oh, I've got it so hard, or this doesn't work, or how do you make it look so easy, when really they have all the same tools that are available to myself, to themselves as well. It's just how they go about doing it. Have they spent the time to learn it? I might be three years ahead in terms of research, understanding, application learning, but they have the ability to be able to do it too. It's not really a separation of like, oh you know, I've got an advantage. My advantage is time. My advantage is I started three years ago, but their advantage is actually time too, because they can actually take what I've been able to do and, kind of you know, pull out all the breadcrumbs of what works and then actually amplify on that and probably do it quicker. That's my thoughts, my honest thoughts. So that's an interesting point. The next one that he goes on to talk about is do the opposite of most people, and here are a list of things that he's been told over the years, which he now believes that you know probably was bad advice. Desktop computers are a fad. Posting on social media will get you fired. We'll never carry phones everywhere we go. The internet is a scam and the dot com bubble proved it. They can't fire you because you'll have all the customer relationships Sorry, they can't fire you because you have all the customer relationships. Bitcoin and Ethereum and cryptocurrency are the new beanie baby bubble. So look, there's a lot of things here which I've heard as well. He's this guy's a lot older than me, but it's not always the case Like people will say things, but it doesn't mean it's truth, it doesn't mean it's fat and, unfortunately, opportunities that make real money do look like scams. But there are scams that obviously look like you're making a lot of money as well, and but usually because opportunity. The reason why opportunity looks iffy, scary, scammy, is because it usually carries risks, it makes people uncomfortable and it requires an optimistic mindset. Now, I'm not saying that when someone comes and tells you they've got $400,000 for you waiting on the other side of this email, that's probably not. That's probably not an opportunity. That's probably a scam. But you know when I talk about. You know, taking risks is, you know, taking a bed in your business, meaning, you know, trialing something's, looking at it and saying, well, if I continue to do this and based on what I'm seeing with my customers purchasing, or how much they are buying, or my sell through rate, I can start to see, well, if I did double this, technically it should grow. But in order to test that, in order to see if that's going to work, you need to take a bit of a risk, you need to get uncomfortable, you need to have a bit of optimism and put your money where your mouth is and see if it's actually going to work out. So look, I'm not saying do the opposite of what everyone says to do, and he's not saying that either. But what he's saying is there's a lot of people that say a lot of things for the sake of just saying it, because they don't understand it or they are uncomfortable with it. Therefore it doesn't mean it's legit. But if they're ahead of you or maybe they have some level of status, then we naturally tend to think oh well, you know, they've got it all together. Maybe, maybe they have the right answer, but they have no idea, and it's usually because they're not dabbling it in themselves, and that makes them feel better about themselves, because if they're telling someone else that you shouldn't do it because of these reasons, and that's the reasons why they're not doing it, or that it justifies it or validates it for them. So don't get stuck in other people's problems like that. Look, I think the action that he said oh, he actually says to do the action is take conventional advice and do the opposite. Interesting the next point he has said is money is made in saturated markets. I've been told repeatedly that XYZ market is too saturated. This is what he's saying. I'm just reading out what he said, and he says that he loves saturated markets because the opposite is a market where nobody is engaging or buying and typically means a problem people don't want solved, and that's at the heart of ideas that never gain traction. It's the cause of most startup failures. Now he also goes on to talk about how competition is good. He talks about, rather than just trying to copy someone's idea, how do you look at it, find the problems and then fix those problems and then put it out there and make it cheaper, better, smarter, whatever it may be. The other thing he said to look at is when your competition is transactional, start to become more relational. When your competition is focused on money, be focused more on meaning. When your bosses and entrepreneurs treat people like crap, go ahead and just be stupidly kind. When everyone's got a huge ego, dare to be humble. So basically, it's kind of coming back to the point of what he was saying before is doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing, but also find the gaps and feel the gaps and do it like at scale and do it really really well, and that is what will make you an outlier. Go where most competition is, but then be yourself. That's his advice here. That's the action plan, and I think this is really important is because, I mean, I spoke about this before when I've come into my business, I've looked around and see how other people are doing it. I've seen that this is what they did, this is what those people did, these people are doing it, and I can start to say one what do I like? Two okay, now that I have that information, how can I take what I know and apply it and then enable myself to make it quicker, make it better, make it smarter or make it different? That works for me and makes it like an outlier for me. That enables me to thrive while doing that. And I'm not saying I'm here to make everyone else behind me or lower than me or anything like that, but what I'm saying is there's things out there which enable us to take that, leverage it and apply it back to ourselves to get ahead quicker. And that's exactly what he's saying here. And the next point is the courage to start a random conversation is powerful. And look, I think, without reading into this in too much detail, I think this is 100% correct and over the years, I've started to realize the power. There is. A cliche back in working in corporate is oh, you need to get out and network, and it's one of those points that people just throw around. But you don't really understand what networking means, especially in a corporate world. If you're growing in the corporate world and you're, you know, a graduate or really early into the company, you don't really understand the power of networking. I think I understand networking better now that I work for myself, because I'm doing everything for myself and I have to leverage the ability of other people. And when we're in a big company and you've been told go do this. This is what you have to do, this is your job. You can kind of keep your eyes focused on the single path, but when you're working for yourself or when you own something, you have to be not looking at just the part you're walking to get to a revenue goal or a profit goal. You got to be looking at, okay, how do I achieve this, how do I bring in new stock, how do I speak to the customer, how do I deal with all these problems that are going on? So you're looking, you're walking down many paths at many different times and when we have conversations with people, we can learn very quickly information that we did not know. And obviously by having those connections, they can help us get to where we want to be quicker, so they can help us run that race. When you're working a corporate job, you don't necessarily know what you're trying to run towards, because you've just been given a job and you're not necessarily looking at the bigger picture. You're just seeing okay, at the end of the week, friday and. But as you get up further into the corporate ladder or in your job or in your role, as you get promoted, you would start to take on more responsibility and therefore you have different KPIs, different expectations on what you need to achieve and what you need to be able to accomplish, and that might mean hitting revenue targets, profit targets or bringing in more sales, or whatever it may be. So therefore, you need to find people that are going to enable you to make that happen. They're going to help make that happen. So to the point here is starting random conversations where people enables the opportunity for things to happen. Look, it's risk versus reward. If you say hi to someone, look, you might just have a nice little chat. You say hi to someone, it might turn out that they're, you know, they are a wholesaler for a type of fabric and you're about to start a new startup of selling a new fine cloth or something Like. Those things happen, like you hear about it and it sounds like, hey, that could never happen to me, but those things happen all the time. I was literally walking. I went for a walk the other day with Carla and I could see someone and they looked super familiar. They kind of looked at me. We didn't say anything. Probably should have, but anyway, I get a message from my mate which I haven't seen, for she was about 15 years. He. Last time I saw him he lived about must have been about five hour drive from me. He sent me messages. I am were you just walking around here? I think I just saw you. I said yeah, it was me. I thought I thought it was you, I wasn't too sure. And it turns out he now lives literally 15 minutes down the road from me. We were good friends when we were younger. I kind of drifted apart. Whatever, he's got a family now, et cetera, et cetera. Anyway, we're going to catch up and it's a small world, the chances of that. But if I had the random conversation again, it's, you never know who that person might have been and what they might have been enabled or opened you up to. And I'm not trying to tell you to. You need to have a chat with everyone wherever you go, but sometimes it's not a bad thing to just say hello, say hi, ask a question If you're curious. Who knows? See what happens. So the action here that Tim is saying is proactively start conversations with no agenda. Just be a human, and it's the magic of being a human being. The next one that he goes on to talk about is money, is the result of a skill stack. Now, this is very interesting. The ultimate question is how do I become a millionaire, or at least, how do I reach my definition of wealth? Now, I think that's important, because most people apply wealth and millionaire together, but you don't have to be a millionaire to be wealthy, and you don't have to be wealthy based on what someone else applies. It as it's like you're, it's like how you define success. You can't, you know, go off someone else's definition. You're going to go from what you decided is. So now, for himself, he's being able to stack his skills over the years. So, for instance, his background was banking in 2011. So he was doing banking. 2013. He started investing in stocks. 2014. He then added blogging and book publishing to his skillsets. 2015, he started to do a lot with LinkedIn. 2016, he started online business. 2017, he started a landing page design, or he added a landing page design. 2018, he added copywriting. 2019, he added course building. 2020, he added skills for handling tax. 2021, he added sub-stack and then 2022, he added affiliate marketing. So all those things have been applied on each other and that in itself, as they continue to stack, as they continue to grow, he's able to leverage, he's able to compound, he's able to expand based on those things that he has that knowledge, his power. And it's very unlikely that you will become wealthy or a millionaire or lots of money with just one niche skill. Usually it's the application of multiple skills, of what you know, what you've applied, what you've learned and what you've taken along the journey. And then over time it starts to snowball and things just start to move very, very quickly. And his action here is rebuild and expand your skill stack. Now, if I was to ask you, if you were to start a business today and you like something or you like the idea of that business, what is your unfair advantage to it? This is essentially that, and as we develop and as we grow and as we experience, we can add more to that ability to be able to put leverage and power to our advantage against other people. And it's not about being better than other people, but it's about you know, if you're starting a business and we are talking about a business here if you're starting a business or you're trying to earn money, we're doing it because we want money. I'm doing it because you know I just want to earn money for the sake of earning money. We need it for our livelihoods and there's, you know, there's a certain number and I've spoken about this on the podcast before there's a certain number that you're happy with and of course, then it can always change. But you need to have that in mind of what you're trying to work towards and building your skills and gaining the knowledge and the ability to be able to execute to that as quickly as possible. The next one that he goes on to talk about is challenge the status quo, aka authority. Now he actually also says this one isn't also mandatory either. But I think sometimes what he goes on to talk about I'm just I'm just giving this as I'm reading, as I'm talking to you, but you know there's things that, especially in the corporate world, we have things that confront us, that come in front of us and it's kind of like rubber them going forward. We have to kind of split our ways and go around of a left or right and or we get, you know, red tape, or we get a little red flag and says, no, you can't do this. And I think I've seen this really really interestingly and very well. Well, I guess as a good example over the last 10 years when I was working is what from when I started to when I was leaving, and how that kind of change and how the ability of what was or you could never do that versus people are actually starting to feel comfortable with those kind of things. You know, the typical example of this would be working from home. Pre COVID it was kind of like a weird thing People were uncomfortable over. It was not really respected. Come COVID, we didn't have a choice. Now it's now it's normal, now it's the expectation that we can do that. So I think as we start to, as we start to grow and as we start to become comfortable with ourselves, we need to also get comfortable with having uncomfortable conversations to enable us ourselves to grow, but also to enable the things that we're passionate about to become alive. Now I'm not saying that you should become a pain and you know, just do things radically and, you know, do the complete opposite of what people are saying. But what he's kind of saying here is it's like we get asked questions and a lot of the time it's like we're either a yes man or we struggle to say no because you know if your boss comes up, I need this done on the weekend. You know, at the start. I feel like when we don't have any really understanding of how corporate worlds work, we tend to just, you know, we might push back a little bit, but then we ease into it and then we let it slide and then our boundaries start to slide as well. But there's also this conversation around. If someone comes and asks you to do something like if someone came to ask you on I can only talk about from my own examples. But if someone came and spoke to you on Friday night and say, hey, look, I need you to do this on the weekend because it's June Monday, you know you, obviously you have a, you have an opportunity to say no, well, yes, right. And there's reasonings behind both, because personal boundaries, as soon as you start to say yes, it opens it up. That means people will probably come to you and, you know, likely ask you to do it again because they know that you will do it. So you need to be comfortable with that. If you're not comfortable with it, if you don't have the conversation around challenging it and saying no, then nothing will ever change. Now the other thing is is like Someone comes and says to you as I go, I need you to get this job done today. You know it's really important. And let's say you work an eight hour day. I think the other thing is where, if you're able to get the job, the task, done in half the time, why do you still need to be at work? Why do you still need to be working? But it makes people uncomfortable knowing that I will if he's done it and he's not working now Like you're being unproductive. But if that wasn't the task at hand, why do you have to keep working so challenging the way people apply their understanding on something Versus how you? I think that's fair game, because just because one person likes to do it this way, one person operates this way, one person sees it this way, doesn't mean it's right. I'm not saying that you're always right either, but I think it's important that we do get comfortable with having uncomfortable conversations and understanding when people are coming from, so that you can then put your perspective and help them understand Well why you don't necessarily agree with it and when we just you know when we stop just saying yes or no with no context, we can start to actually have a better understanding and we'll probably actually gain a lot more respect for individuals and back and forth. I hope that wasn't too confusing. So the action here that Tim is saying is challenge a small decision and Feel the discomfort, and then we can start to see what this does for us, because discomfort enables us to grow. The next one that he talks about is the closer you are to ownership, the closer you are to freedom. There are two ways to live life rent or own. Look, I mean when we work a job or our time is being rented out to that, to that corporation or that company, and they can evict you at any point in time if they really want to. And that's where most of us start from. We spoke about this at the start, but as we start to make changes, we can also choose to become an owner rather than a renter. Like we can buy financial assets, we can start to own real estate, we can start to build our own online presence through an email list, or we can start to store our own data on our own Service. We can start to have our own future with our own goals and our own vision. We can start to have our own time through outcome based work Instead of by the arrow work, which is kind of what I was just talking about before. So these are all choices that we have, and the sooner we, sooner we start to choose this is what he's saying the sooner we start to choose to own more parts of our life, the sooner you can actually have the benefits of being an owner, and owners have more control of their freedom. That's one of the main reasons why I stepped away from the nine to five is because I knew I wanted to have my own business and I wanted to build a lifestyle that I wanted and I wanted to start this podcast and, though I don't earn as much at this point in time, the freedom of time that I have I feel just as I feel like I'm earning just as much, but I have more time. So the action that Tim is saying here is take back ownership of one area of your life and then work through the next one, the next one. I think this is really important and it's when we change that perspective on how you can own things rather than, you know, be controlled by something. I think it makes a huge difference. The next point he goes on to talk about is Increase your failure rate. I think this is really important and Basically, without going into too much detail here. Really, what he's saying is is like if we're not learning, if we're not failing, then we're not learning, right. And so I said that kind of twice right, like if we're not learning we're not failing, and if we're not failing we're not learning. In order to learn, we need to go, try things. We need to get uncomfortable, we need to try something that we haven't done before, and most of the time, before we can get to when we want the result to get us to like the success of that, it means there's going to be a few little bumps in the road. Things won't go to. Plant might take a bit longer, you might have to try again. Didn't work the first time, so you have to pivot. And when we talk about failure, we're not talking about like failure and like you are a failure. We're talking about things are going to go not as smooth as we want. Things are going to, you know, make you think. Things are going to make you work harder, things are going to make you work differently. Things are going to push you in ways you've never worked before. So that's it kind of pushes you around to where you want to go, and through those moments. That's where we learn and he goes on to say here he lost everything once. Actually he's lost everything financially multiple times and by knowing that he's been able to make it before After loot like because he's made it before after losing it all he knows he can start again, but this time he can do it a little bit better. He can fix the mistakes that he did last time. For me, in my business, you know it's when you, when you start to scale, there's things that are very hard to fix without you know cutting. You know cutting out everything completely, because you need to start from scratch. It's sometimes cheaper to do that or sometimes easier to do that. So him being wiped out made it very easy for him to come back and do it bigger, better and smarter, because he now had the ability to do so and he wasn't bound by all these other little Workarounds or all these other little things that he had to do. He was able to just execute, knowing what will work versus what didn't work when he did it the last time. So the action here is take one. You calculated, research, researched, backed risk. I think that's really good. Now it looks like this is the last piece of information or last piece of advice that he wants to share, so it's called one unlikely piece of financial wisdom to finish on, and he thinks it is. We're going through a kindness epidemic, meaning people have forgotten how to be kind to each other and We've let this is what he's saying we've let individualism and politics rule. To show an unerated skill that has made me wealthy is to be kinder, and I totally agree with this. When we are kind, when we are Kind, when we are welcoming to others, when we do help others with our agendas, hidden agendas, and we just give and share and love, I Think this empathy enables people to one Open up a lot quicker. It cuts out the the BS in between. It stops beating around the bush. I've had some conversations with people and you know someone sends me a message. You know I could ignore it or I could sell, you know go somewhere else. But you know if I can respond and I've got an answer, I will just do a voice-over siege and say, hey, look, this is what I think. Let it out or I'll send a message if I can. And what surprises me the most is the amount of responses that I Go. It's like oh wow, I didn't. I didn't expect you to respond so quick. Or thank you so much for answering. It's like, well, what I'm shocked by is like they asked a question so, like you know, wouldn't it make sense that I, you know answer them? And that goes to tell me that a lot of people aren't spending, you know, two minutes, three minutes to even share and give back to other people, and Obviously there's this boundaries and lines and things like that. But we do need to make sure that you know we aren't being people that are selfish or becoming across as Rude individuals and, you know, giving people a little chance of time and a lot of the time, you'll realize the people that are seeing these questions they're looking up to you or they think that you have the answer and for you to give them a couple of minutes of your time it's going to, it could potentially change their life simply because they are inspired and motivated and encouraged by you. So if they hear something from you, they take it really seriously Also means we don't understand the power of influence or the power that we might have on other people, you know, just because we don't see ourselves the same way that they see us. So it is very important that when we do have conversations with people and when we do share kindness, that we do in a way which is respectful to others and we do it in a way which you know isn't going to Make them read into it in a weird way, because unfortunately that can open up another whole can of worms and we won't go down that. We won't get down that one. But look, this is an interesting article, a little different to how I've known me to this stuff, because I didn't really Look at it in detail or I didn't pull anything out. I kind of just went literally on the fly. So really relevant things here, stuff that I've heard before. I've read a lot of these in books before, but I think it's just nice to hear it from someone that's, you know, just doing things and he's just sharing as he goes. If you want to check out this article, it is on medium. It's called the stupidly simple pieces of advice. That made me mean it came out four days ago, the time of me recording this. I would highly recommend go checking it out. Go check out what Tim Denning does. He's got.
