Hey there!

We are back back back again with another episode of the Scottie Taylor Jr - Success + Money + Mindset Podcast!!

Today’s episode is ALL about hard work.

But I’m NOT going to talk about “hard work” in the way you might think.

In fact, I’m not going to encourage you to work less or not try so hard.

Instead, I’m going to share with you THREE things you MUST have in place before you use “hard work” to accomplish all of your goals.

The reason I created this episode?

I know what it’s like to be a new entrepreneur.

And I know what it’s like to grow up in a world where “hard work” is seen as the HOLY GRAIL.

In a world where the harder you work, the more successful you’re seen (and feel).

But, unfortunately, hard work ALONE isn’t the solution to a massively successful business.

But you probably already knew that already, right?

See, if hard work ALONE got people massive success, then the teachers and servers of the world would be making millions.

But that’s just not the case.

I’ve said this before and I continue to stand by it: hard work alone can get you going in business and help you hit the $100k - $150k mark – But getting to $300k+?

Hard work ALONE won’t cut it.

Think about where you are right now in your business.

How much money are you making, and how hard are you working? Like how many hours a day?

Let’s say you’re making $100k a year right now, and working 10-12 hours a day, 5 days a week….

If you’re here, you probably know there’s a breaking point

If you want to DOUBLE to $200k….

You can’t work TWICE as hard, right? (and you very likely don’t WANT to).


And this is a big butt…

You WANT to keep working hard (at least most entrepreneurs do)

The reason?

When you’re an entrepreneur, there are a LOT of things outside of your control.

  • You can’t control if someone picks up the phone when you call
  • You can’t control who sees your content when you post it
  • Heck, you can’t even control someone saying YES!

Virtually nothing is inside of your control, which can create a lot of stress.

But, there is ONE thing that is absolutely under your control.

How hard you work.

How many hours you put in, how determined you are, how much effort you exert.

And in a world of uncertainty, knowing that YOU can control something - namely, yourself - adds a level of “okay, I got this - I can do this!

Now that we’ve laid the foundation, here’s where my message comes in.

Because hard work is within your control, a lot of entrepreneurs tell me that they are WILLING to work hard… to get to that next level.

But, if hard work ALONE can’t get you there, then what’s the missing ingredient?

In my newest podcast episode, I’m going to share with you 3 things you MUST have before you work hard in order for your “hard work” to reap results.

I am SO excited to hear what you think!

If you’re an advisor and want to DOUBLE your business but not work TWICE as hard…

The solution? Get a prospecting system.

Within my signature program, The Financial Advisor Academy, there are completely done-for-you templates, emails, workbooks, and agendas –

So you can MASTER prospecting without having to reinvent the wheel.

It’s kinda the vibe of “join, grab, plug & play – and make FK tons of money”

Curious if it’s something you’d want to explore?
