Diversify

Diversify… what do I mean by that. If you want to generate a lot of cashflow to your bank account then this term is so incredibly crucial. Phillip diversified like a madman when it came to what he put his money into and how he generated more of it and guess what… he was a multi-millionaire. Having multiple income streams is so crucial if you want to be financially free.

Phil invested in the stock market, check out this wiki article if you want to learn more on how to do that. He helped start multiple companies, one of which was the window washing company I had previously mentioned that my friend owns. It is a pretty sweet business, check it out here if you want. He owned vending machines, was involved in real estate and of course owned his own company which was his main source of revenue.

If for one second you think to yourself that this was all handed to my mentor you are dead wrong. He worked so hard and started with nothing to create this network diverse income streams. Anything is possible. If you want to make a lot of money then you have to work your can off in many different ways. I am not telling you to spread your eggs into to many baskets all at once. What I am saying is build one thing at a time until it generates you passive income and then move onto the next. Create well oiled machines that just real in the cash without you having to be there and you will be a millionaire.

In order to create these passive income streams, you have to put a ton, and I mean a ton of upfront work into them. You will have to go days, without sleeping at times and there will be moments where you will dount if it is worth it. But if you truly want financial freedom and want to do things that others can’t, then for awhile you have to be willing to do things that others won’t. Through hard work and diversification, you can get there just as my man Phil did.

Sacrifice… what a tough thing huh? Phillip Brunelle never talked about this subject matter to me but he was always showing me what sacrifice looked like. He would leave work early to have more time with his family and then come back to work when they went to sleep. He would spend time coaching his kids in their sports multiple times a week when he could have had that time to himself. He got up two hours earlier than he had to just to make sure he was on top of everything so he could always provide for his family.

Sacrifice is when one gives up something that is valued or important for the sake of other considerations. Phil knew how to sacrifice for others as well as make sacrifices to be great.

Always put others first, especially those who are most important to you. Learn to sacrifice daily for these people. Do things in their best interest not in yours. Love and sacrifice go hand in hand. This does not mean don’t take care of yourself but it does mean be a servant to others, especially family and friends. Leaders know how to sacrifice.

Phillip was always good at balancing his time. He was the hardest working man I knew but he also knew how to relax and genuinely enjoy life. I remember one day as I first started working for him we had so much to do. We were overwhelmed and had what felt like a million calls to make and millions meetings to attend. For about half the day we knocked out a huge chunk of our work and I was exhausted. My brain was about to snap but I was pushing to keep going. All of the sudden, Phil came into my office and said “that’s it lets get out of here” and just like that we grabbed our things and left work. He wanted to go hangout with his family and he invited me to tag along. I would often spend time at Phil’s house so the fact that I was leaving work with my mentor was not an untypical thing, just so you know. As I look back I realize from this memory of mine, Phil knew when to take a good break and go invest time into what was most important to him, his family and relationships. I think this is a necessary trait and skill to have as a business person or for anyone who is in the workforce.
