I got paid to buy a business

for realsies

I got paid to buy a business.

As in, after papers were signed, I owned a business and had more cash on hand than before.


I spilled the beans in this video while talking to my friend Ben.

Go check it out if you like creating cash flow out of thin air.

…which brings me to my rant.

I work with dozens of people building different kinds of businesses, and see one common mistake over and over:

“If I build it, they will come.”

Sorry Kevin Costner, no they won’t.

Chances are, the people you want and need are not paying attention to you.

They are submerged beneath wave after wave of attention- grabbing, dopamine- spiking cheap entertainment.

Untouchable, unless…

If you want to penetrate their guarded attention bubble, you need to go where they are already looking.

Then steal their limited attention, like a highway bandit.

Point is, passively waiting to get noticed is a recipe for failure.

You need to own or control your own attention traffic.

My friend Drew has been telling me for years that the absolute best place to do this is YouTube.

He’s a YT growth consultant, and some of his clients have golden play buttons.

(Look it up if you don’t know what that means.)

YouTube has a ton of traffic. An algorithm that pushes your (good) content to new people. Evergreen discoverability. Integrated with Google search SEO. Captures AND maintains attention. Possibility for monetization.

It slices, it dices, but wait! There’s more!

By it’s very nature, long form content builds deeper relationships with the audience than short form.

Meaning, each viewer or subscriber is more valuable on average than a follower on TikTok.

Even though Drew has been hounding me for YEARS about the power of YouTube, I have personally created a total of 4 (not very good) videos in the last 2 years.

In fact, the best video on my channel is Drew himself giving a YouTube training:

In addition to creating weekly videos with Ben, I am finally committed to putting effort into my YouTube channel this year.

I promised one of my mentors that I’d post a new video by the end of the week.

Why should you care?

Because if you struggle with traffic, with capturing and keeping attention, I’m going to uncover and share what’s working right now in real time.

At the very least, I’ll make sure it’s entertaining.

Unlike most Kevin Costner movies.

Back tomorrow,


P.S. Does the thought of being on video terrify you?

That’s a big disadvantage, ngl.

Maybe you just need to Find Your Voice.
