“People think that there’s some secret tip or code or some line that they can skip, some backdoor that they can go into and it’s just not the case. You’ve got to put in the work, the hard work, and educate yourself. Whatever it is you’re going to do, come up with a plan. And to Scott’s point, you’ve actually got to execute on the plan.”
Brandon didn’t let others dictate his success. He had a plan, he embraced the suck, he took action, and he got results!
