You remember that chick?
Danielle Bregoli or “Bhad Bhabie” as she now calls herself — was on Dr. Phil when she told an audience member: “cash me ousside, how bow dah?” And, for some stupid reason, it went viral.
Well, she recently turned 18.
Started an OnlyFans.
And, made $1 million in just 6 hours.
You ever feel like our society is designed to promote and reward the most awful people on the planet? This chick… all them “Real Housewives” shows — all the most emotionally unstable and mentally weak people we have.
Teachers, doctors — all the people doing heroic work are often after thoughts.
But, I digress.
There’s a few lessons in this.
For example, it shows how we tend to overvalue beauty. Yeah… Bhad Bhabie is decent-looking, but seems like a pretty garbage human. People don’t care. We place an inordinate amount of value on beauty.
Something to keep in mind as you build your portfolio.
Or as you design your apps and websites.
There’s also a lesson about entertainment. The reason WHY these awful people are so popular is because they’re entertaining to watch. So, you can be a complete dirtbag, but if you’re entertaining… people will pay attention.
Something to keep in mind as you create your content.
But, the lesson I want to talk about is the bigger, deeper one.
It’s what I’m constantly telling you… there’s nobody out there “balancing the score”. Nobody that’s going to make sure the good guys win in the end… at least, not in this life. Nobody that’s going to “someday” see you and save you.
Lots of garbage human beings win.
Lots of really good people lose.
It’s up to YOU to *take* what you want. Not in some shady, evil way. But, to stand up for yourself and be assertive. A lot of people think… “If I’m just a good person and do a good job, I’ll win in the end.”
You have to MAKE yourself win.
If you want something, you gotta go get it.
Anyway, this is one of the reasons I decided to do a course on my cold email method for getting clients. It’s the most direct, assertive, aggressive method I know. It’s not about sitting around hoping and waiting.
I love content marketing.
And, freelance sites.
But those are the long game. You should absolutely be doing them… but not ONLY them. And they take time to cultivate and grow into something that can bring you the amount of clients you need to freelance full-time.
Cold email is fast.
You could, if you wanted, send out an email right now and get hired.
If you need cash quick, it’s the best method.
Of course, if you do it the way most people do… you can send that email, but the person on the other end isn’t going to respond — let alone hire you. But, if you follow what I show you, it’s fairly likely that very first email will, at least, ask you to come in and talk to them.
It’ll be pretty hard for them to ignore you…
When you do it how I teach.
Anyway, if you want to get aggressive… my new course, Cold Email Method, will show you how. I’ve put it on Skillshare to give everyone a chance to go through no matter your financial situation.
But, it’ll only be there until the end of April.
At which point, I’ll take it down and sell it in on my website for probably $100 or more. So, if you want to learn this aggressive method (that has nothing to do with spamming random strangers, btw) AND save $100…
Best jump in and learn it now.
It’s Lesson #3 here: https://myjohn.us/coldemail
If you’re already a Skillshare member, that’ll take you right into the course. If not, that link will trigger a free 14-day trial of Skillshare. That way, you can take the course, decide if you like Skillshare and, if not, cancel before the trial is up…
And, you never pay a penny.
It’s a few hoops to jump through, but to save $100… might be worth it for you.
Anyway, up to you.
Like I said, it comes down at the end of April… so plan accordingly.
