Self Investment: Learning Is From Birth to Death...


A journalist recently asked me. "Alex why don't I see you on the red carpet anymore, attending events like all your other colleagues, you need to come out and be seen..."

So I replied "That's the problem, I don't want to be seen, I want to be HEARD..." of course he didn't really get me. See, in this part of the world, most people equate VISIBILITY with literally being seen all over the place,

And while being seen is okay, visibility is more about being felt, it's about creating IMPACT...it's about having influence not on the surface of pop culture, but being able to EMPOWER and add value to multitudes.

So while I see many who are being "seen" alright, I ask myself... Are they being heard? Do they have the power to motivate me or you, to take a singular action on a daily? Do I look at their selfies on top blogs and say That's my next life goal (Dang! I need to have a weave on or makeup that rocks like that)...Naaah!! Think about it...How does what I wear add value to you? It may give ME confidence...It could make ME physically attractive...but I can't really think of how that helps YOU.

And the one thing any influencer truly wants is to learn that their presence speaks...to know that their brand  VOICE isn't being suppressed, that their message is crystal clear and that they have the POWER to move others in a way no one else can...

Do I want to end up on a blog every week because of a Givenchy Dress (created by someone else who has built their own brand) that I wore on a red carpet or my collage of filtered selfies on instagram (Oh! on another person's platform...because I woke up like this or got some nice face beat by a celebrity MUA), or do I want to end up on the Cover of "Times Magazine" because of the work I do...because I'm building an unstoppable brand as a World Changer? Hmm...

Truth is, I don't go out much these days, unless its important work that brings in the $£#...because I'm too busy INVESTING in myself and building my platforms.

On Tuesday, I attended Michael Hyatt's LIVE Platform Webinars. I'm also considering paying $37 each month for my subscription as a member of his platform. On Monday, I attended Navid Moazzez VSM 2.0 Masterclass. On Wednesday, Noah Kagan's, CEO of Sumome on Email List Building Workshop, and I participated in Nathan Chan, CEO of Foundr Magazine and I'm considering joining his Foundr Club for $59 a month. In the last two and a half years, I have subscriptions, apps, tool kits, widgets, coaching programs and online bills topping a little over $27,000 and some change. Boy, Do you think I'm stupid?

Naah darlings! I'm investing in myself because I no longer have the time to waste... trying to learn it all by myself, when I can acquire knowledge and strategy's from the world's best and build my own AUTHORITY.

Tomorrow, when I close my eyes and give away $10,000 to a charity or buy my dream property. Someone somewhere will ask..."Who is she sleeping with, how did she get her money, How many films has she done this year?...Blaahh!! Forgetting all the STRATEGIC investment I had to make to learn how to monetise my skills and build my brand.

I have learned that to actually DOUBLE your income, you must "triple" your investment in self-development. There's no way around it. You spend MONEY to make money (even though, sometimes... what you spend might be equity in assets, skills, network)...so why not spend it on learning.

How can you EARN more, be more...if you refuse to invest in your GROWTH. How can you grow, if you refuse to learn from those who have been there and done that, and take the tools they have put out to help you.  My father once said that LEARNING is from birth to death... so it makes more sense to spend money to buy a book, network with goal-getters, attend a simple lecture... collaborate, align with your competition, if it will foster learning...so that you can aim higher, set goals. And not SETTLE.

I swear, once you start, you'll love the process of reinventing yourself and your business.

How about you REINVENT yourself, by building your own platform starting NOW! And I know a few good ways, I can help...
