Get yourself a mentor.
I’m not talking about that bs mentorship your parents put you with when you were little. Or that one person you go to, to talk about your problems.
Get yourself a mentor who actually represents what you want in life. Not just one thing in life, but many things.
Learn from someone who is actually going to change your life, and who you are from the core.
These two have similar implications: “A mentor makes you do what you don’t want to do, so you can be who you want to be.” On the left (my current mentor): Dan Lok. He’s taught me so much, and I still keep on learning. I cannot fully describe what he has done for me, and what he still has in store.
On the right: The $50 Billion Man, Dan Peña. He is actually my mentor’s mentor. I aspire to physically learn from him later in life. Im not in the right position to visit Mr. Peña. But, I’m using that urgency to propel me forward in life, fast.
I seek to attend his QLA Seminar at Guthrie Castle (his own castle) in Scotland, hopefully before time runs out.
Bottomline, for the sake of value in this post, I urge everyone to continuously learn. That can be from books, experience, or a mentor (and I don’t mean in school). Life’s going to kick you no matter what, get a mentor who tells you how to take the hits, learn from them, and conquer the world.
You won’t regret it.
Colin Kaepernick is Nike's $6 billion man~10tv.com
The heat Nike has taken over its controversial advertising campaign featuring former NFL start Colin Kaepernick seems to have had another effect: burnishing the iconic brand's appeal to investors.
Nike shares have surged 36 percent on the year, making the company the top performer on the Dow's index of 30 blue-chip stocks. The run-up includes a nearly 5 percent increase since Nike's Labor Day announcement that Kaepernick would be featured in its campaign, adding nearly $6 billion to the company's market value.
The stock continues to hover near an all-time high, which it reached in mid-September only weeks after some Nike customers publicly burned their shoes to express their displeasure at the new ad.In afternoon trading Nike shares were up slightly to $85.67.
For Nike, the boost eases concerns about the decision to link its brand to the controversial Kaepernick, who in 2016 started kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest racial injustice.
Nike knows its consumer base, which skews younger, said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley RBR. "I don't think they just randomly decided to put this ad out, thinking, 'Let's commit political-correctness suicide'." "People vote with their wallets, and the one clear winner in athletic apparel remains Nike," he said, comparing Nike to Apple in its ability to create demand by rolling out "must-have" products.
Nike did not return a request for comment on Kaepernick's compensation or whether it might be tied to the company's stock performance. But various media accounts peg his pay at millions a year, not bad for a football player no longer playing in the professional ranks.
GM! Well it looks like I’ll be taking my talents to LA! Yes, I’ve already starting looking at flights and hotels. Yes, I’ve already told my cousin to prepare for my visit because I need to know where to party and eat after I see my MainMan play. And yes, I played “California Love” as I thought of all cute outfits I’m going to wear. lol. I’m going back to Cali!! #billiondollarman#whereeverhegoesigo#californialove#iwantmoreofit
So if I'm not at your event coordinating and making sure everyone at the party enjoy themselves, I'm out as a brand guardian and maintain brand integrity across all company marketing initiatives and communications, and may manage portfolio of products.
And most times, i get my hands dirty and do the job Myself.
