Explain That Gram

I just love travel; we happen to live in a time where a lot of situations can be very tense, especially in our country. It’s so good to be able to get out and experience other ways of life. You can connect with other people and see that their way of life tends not to be the only way. There’s also the thing of social arbitrage – you can find out how other people do things and their reasoning, bring it back with you and thus implement it into your own practices. I also employ travel hacking – I use the right credit cards and rewards in order to take affordable trips; just this summer, my wife and I took a trip to Europe, only costing us around $1,000. Normally, this would have cost us about $10,000. All in all, travel can open your mind and eyes to what’s around you.

Three Pieces of Advice From Rob Erich

Well, to someone who would just be starting out, my advice is to keep your day job. Treat your employer as your first investor; besides, keeping your day job while trying to launch your own little thing will require that you be more efficient with your time. If your goal is to create something that is scalable, then you’ll want to look into automating certain aspects of your operations, or delegating them to the right people. Secondly, create processes so that you can automate and delegate as necessary and if possible. And lastly, read about Hoffman, the co-creator of LinkedIn; he has some amazing content. Also, treat your life as an epic – you’ll face trials and challenges in life and your business. But if you take a step back and think on how you want your ‘epic’ to end, it can provide some clarity on solving your current problems. Plus, it gives great material for your story to share.
