This show is for you. We’ll teach you how to build a strong mindset, powerful body and profitable business so you can achieve success and here’s your host Brandon. See white three H. P. T. S. High percentage tips that you would give. 

Helen: 

Someone from anything sales marketing getting started, but how to run a side hustle. 

Helen: 

So I just want to say that it can be done. 

Helen: 

I am a college student who is living in their parents house on a budget and I also work full time somewhere else. 

Brandon: 

It can be done at any age. I started this my senior year in high school with no knowledge in business whatsoever. 

Brandon: 

Just went with the flow but high percentage, I would say number one would be, make sure you are doing what you love, do not do something that you are lukewarm about. 

Brandon: 

I have doubts that it would succeed. 

Brandon: 

You have to be very, very passionate about what you’re doing because the passion comes a good product, passion comes a good service. 

Brandon: 

So those things go hand in hand And also to be passionate about it, this is not going to be 9-5 at all. 

Brandon: 

This is not a 9-5 jobs, You are going to be thinking about this at least I do like every hour of the day on the weekend, I’ll be burning at 10:00 at night on Saturday, it’s not 9-5, you’re gonna be doing this more hours than you think you’re gonna be working on this. 

Brandon: 

Very, very hard to make sure that you love it because it’s not gonna be clocking out okay, I’m done for the day. 

Brandon: 

Number two would be customer relationship. 

Brandon: 

I think those are really key. 

Brandon: 

You need to hold on to those relationships. 

Brandon: 

I have met so many wonderful people and I don’t just give them the wood and dump them. 

Brandon: 

Here’s your wood. Thanks bye. I stay in contact with them. I message them. See how they’re doing, How do you like your piece is the person that you gave it to do? 

Brandon: 

They love it. If you want something else, let me know how I can help. So, customer relationships are huge, huge, huge, huge and you will meet amazing, amazing people. And I’ve actually made a lot of friends through this business, so make sure you hold on to those people because it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, as you all know, and then number three would be again, social media, take advantage of it, I that is my only marketing platform that I do, and it has taken off and I’ve met again, so many amazing, amazing people and I want to thank everyone who has supported me, thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Brandon: 

Whether it just be a like on my post or share or actually purchasing something or telling a friend like, hey, I got this lady who does custom wood art, that’s all done through social media and I really want to, you know, we talked a lot about that emphasis that that’s very important, but just just be kind of people make friends hold onto those relationships because this is a small town and if you’re treating people badly they will not support your business. 

Brandon: 

So you have to be kind of, people treat them with respect and you know, you’re going to meet the best part about this about the businesses, I have met so many amazing people and you know, friendships that I will keep with me forever, those were awesome. 

Brandon: 

I think you can teach a business class, maybe I don’t, you know, it just kind of comes naturally that too, I mean, again it comes naturally because I love it so much, I’m not forcing them. 

Brandon: 

This is what I love to do, I love people and I love art and to be able to share it with them and use it to help my community sometimes it’s amazing. 

Brandon: 

It’s amazing.
