Are You Using A.I.?

How To Use A.I. To Get Ahead

Tip #1: Be Realistic

A.I. is not an excuse to be ignorant. The tool makes mistakes, so you need to understand the fundamentals of what you’re doing. With that point in mind, A.I. is a powerful tool that can help you get ahead.

Tip #2: Get Ahead Of The Curve

In every revolution, people resist change and get left behind. The A.I. revolution is no different. Because A.I. is changing so quickly, the rate at which you adapt is important. If you wait too long, it could be hard to catch up.

Tip #3: Use A.I. To Become More Valuable

Job loss to A.I. may not come from A.I. itself, but instead from humans using A.I. Therefore, you have a choice to make. You can sit back and watch this happen. Or you can use A.I. to become more valuable and get ahead of the curve.

Tip #4: Use A.I. As Leverage

You can’t master every A.I. Focus instead on leveraging the most relevant tools for your job or industry. The right tools will give you leverage—increasing your output for the same amount of input.

Tip #5: Follow A Proven Path

A.I. isn’t a magical shortcut to making millions. Nevertheless, A.I. does create opportunities for many to achieve financial success. Here are two approaches.

The first approach is leveraging A.I. to maximize your earning potential. If you run an e-commerce business, A.I. can help with email responses, marketing campaigns, and digital asset creation.

The second approach is the opposite approach. In the years ahead, countless people will attempt to make millions using A.I. tools. Therefore, you can make your fortune by building and selling the tools they use.

What I’m Thinking About

Being Patient Can Be Painful

I sold my shares in my e-commerce business at the end of 2019. After that, I took some time to reflect and eventually created a plan for my next career.

I know starting a business is hard. The first few years of my last business were riddled with problems, setbacks, and sleepless nights. But I think I forgot how hard it can be.

Starting a new career in my late 30s was scary. I’ve had a lot of self-doubt along the way, but I haven’t let that get in the way. If I’ve mastered anything over the past few years, it’s the art of showing up and doing the work even when I don’t want to.

My latest business is off to a great start. My YouTube channel is growing faster than expected, and all the data is trending in the right direction. But when you’re the one logging the hours every day, every inch can feel like a mile.

I’m not writing this to complain. I’m writing this because I think there’s value in being honest. And if you’re going through something similar, knowing you’re not alone might be comforting.

So if you’re in the trenches and feeling discouraged, remember that great things take time. Also, know that those who succeed often find the courage to keep going when others quit.

If this message strikes a chord, I’d love to hear from you. Let me know what you’re working on.
