Did you know I don’t “normally” have a beard? If fact, this is the first time in my life I’ve ever had one.
So...why the beard?
It’s a sign of a belief.
I believe that a shy, awkward, home schooled farm-boy from a polygamous upbringing can become a multimillionaire.
To anchor my belief to that possibility (to myself more than anything), I started documenting my journey to my first $1,000,000 about 3 years ago—on a show now called Making The Millionaire—on YouTube.
The documenting started LONG before I had any “right” or reason to think this would be a good idea.
At the time, I was at zero. I was at less than zero ($53k in debt). I had fears and doubts. (Often still do)
I had no social media.
I had spoken on no stages.
I had done almost no traveling.
I had no business.
Heck, I didn’t even have a product or service to sell.
In short, I didn’t know HOW I was going to do it.
All I had (and continue to have) is a dream—a belief that if I’m dreaming it, it has GOT to be possible. Everything is “figureoutable.” So to further prove to myself that I was serious, I decided to start growing a beard and I told myself I WOULD NOT shave it off until I make my first 1,000,000. (PS, it’d also be rad when I hit it if someone like @ shaved my beard)
I’ve learned some amazing things on this journey. Even though sometimes it feels like almost nothing is moving forward, when I flashback in a journal entry or old photo, it just reminds me to keep going.
Because things ARE happening. Progress IS happening. Lives ARE getting touched—which has become the best part.
I’m not there yet. But I’m closer today than I was yesterday.
Anyways, thank you for reading to this point. That’s “why the beard.” I’m curious to keep going, and see who it is that this regular guy is becoming. :)
