Hi All,

After I read TMF I reached out to MJ to have him speak on my YouTube channel. Shortly after I had a gruelling existential crisis where I ended up in Hawaii living in a forest cubicle and did nothing but play Overwatch, eat 7 chocolate bars a day and dosed Kratom which messed me up.

Only since the beginning of this year have I turned super saiyan and leaped away from the 'broke YouTube influencer' to the less broke agency owner that's technically still a freelancer.

It's nice to finally see money coming in but I've a lot of work to do. My current challenge is finding/attracting non-cheap clients that don't bat an eye at being charged 12K upfront for a retainer package.

Then deal with the systems / hiring someone to do the labour.

See you guys round ere!

Wooo nice to see you here!

Crises are normal and actually you can grow a lot from that pain, with regards of clients that pay 12k, well...why would they give you 12k? if you tell to people 12k and they are saying it's too much, providing that the value you bring is tangible, is a persona problem :)

Question: how you got an elusive cat such as MJ on there? (MJ if you also want to give your side of this...)
