Had a good call on Thursday with @458

He helped me see through some of the bullshit I had been telling myself over the last six months about where I was on my journey and where I am going.

He also explained how I need to master a skill as people will only see me as a 'punk a$$ kid' at the moment. For the last two years I had been writing copy for businesses but in recent times I had burnt out from it. However, he made me realize that it's the one area where I excel at the moment.

I need to commit to 12 hour working days everyday for the next 10 years in Real Estate which is where I want to end up. Knowledge and resources needed before any real progress can be made.

P.S
Landed a $4000 dollar copywriting contract yesterday with a previous client who I followed up again with after my call with 458.

This initiative is extremely inspiring.
@458 I'd love to offer some value in the investment / financial industries (Investment banking, Private equity, Wealth management, Tax planning, Hedge funds).

And completely unrelated, would love to have a mentoring call.
Will PM you.

I called this dude. I want all you super curious ppl to know. Here’s a recap of the convo.

Him: Hi
Me: Hello!

Him: So you can just talk about whatever you want.
Me: ok...

Me: BLAH! Blah blah, blah, blah BLAH blah.. blahhhhhh!
Him: Your probability for success is highest if you stick to what you have been doing for many years and don’t try something new, like getting into the most competitive industry on earth when you’re already 38.

Me: <silence>
Him: I mean, that’s what the majority of these calls are. People don’t want to hear it but.. if we’re talking probabilities..

Me: <still silent but my nose is flaring a lot, my eyes are squinting and I may be gripping my phone rather tight>
Him: I think you’ve done well, you have a lot of experience. If you invest more into the field you have experience in you’ll be even more successful.

Me: <remembering he’s just a guy who prolly works an ungodly amount of time and is sharing advice while being polite> Thanks dude, hope you have a good week.
Him: You too! Feel free to chat again in a couple months.

So... this guy is nice. I’m used to talking to ppl with ADD, while they chug espresso. He talks like a Midwesterner. Measured. Calm. No jarring accent. He doesn’t sound haughty either. He sounds like somebody who gives you time to think. I could tell he felt bad about popping my mega dream bubble but.. that’s why I called, ya know? To get his opinion.

I dunno if I’ll ever call again. I have a bunch of successful ppl who talk to me every week and it’s kida awkward talking to a complete stranger for only ten minutes. He seems decent enough and he gets to the point so that’s good. I dunno if I’ll ever ask for life-changing advice from anyone again. I think I’m gonna stick to asking for help for specific problems. I’m glad I did it instead of chickening out.

If you’re reading this in Feb 2021 could you please pm me and find out if I made my millions by taking his advice or doing the SEO stuff? Thanks.

Everyone wants to hear there the next Tom Brady.. But NO ONE wants to hear there better off being the air supplier for the balls he throws. But hey, that's life!

Oh and this:

This thread is about 2 years old, yet it is great to see 458 still helping out random strangers and share his experience. I had a chance to talk to Paul. It was quick, to the point and helpful. He listen but didn't waste time. I got 4 pointers from him, some of I can use right away.

I appreciate the fastlaner perspective. And we are all lucky to have : TFF forum, key members, tools, inspiration and helpful feedback.

I hope I will be able to help soon also, at least in some aspect.
