The Tai Lopez Show

I spoke at Harvard University last week and it was an extremely humbling experience.

Not everybody gets to speak at the top university in the world.

Yet, leading up to my talk in Cambridge, all I could think about was the fact that I myself was a college dropout.

And make no mistake about it, college dropouts are foreign to Harvard.

Between Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Matt Damon and others, Harvard’s dropouts have been more successful than most other colleges' graduates.

Which leads to a question that I am always asked.

“Tai, should I go to college?”

In the video I’ll explain how you should really approach college.

And when should you get a degree versus when you should drop out, or skip it altogether.

I have a simple goal for myself.

I want to make 300 people insanely wealthy.

And I’m not talking about making people who already have a ton of money wealthier.

I’m talking about helping ordinary people create financial independence from themselves.

That’s because I want to help the people who were just like me.

The ones who don’t come from a family of money and aren’t lucky enough to have received an inheritance.

And I know this sounds like a bit of a lofty goal, creating 300 wealthy people…

But the truth is, I have already been creating wealthy people through my programs for years now.

And with the evolution of snapchat, people write me so much that I actually get to document people’s progress as it’s happening.

For example, two months ago I first opened my Social Media Marketing Agency course where I teach people how to get businesses to pay you to help grow their social medias.

This was the first time I opened up the curtains to how I grew my YouTube and Facebook accounts to just about 700,000 subscribers/Likes.

But the thing about social media is that it’s not enough to just have followers.

My program teaches step by step techniques on how to monetize your following, no matter how big or small it may be.

And only a few weeks after the launch of my program, I had someone message me saying that my program is helping them make 20k a week.

(I actually inserted the screenshot of this message in the video above)

And a question I get all the time from my peers in the entrepreneur world is why do you share your secrets.

Aren’t you just creating more competition for yourself, Tai?

While it is true that I am creating more competition for myself.

The reason I created this Social Media Marketing Agency program is because I’ve spoken at Harvard and London Business School, which are the top 2 universities in the world. And after talking to those kids, I am more then aware that everyone doesn’t have $200,000 to invest into an Ivy League education.

And to be completely honest.

Most of those Ivy League kids I spoke to don’t even have the money themselves.

They’re just going deeper and deeper into debt.

The educational system is a real problem in the world that needs to be fixed.

People are going into huge amounts of debt without learning money-making skills to even get themselves out of it.

And now they’ll literally be stuck paying off these student loans for the next 3,4 or 5 decades of their lives.

But instead of complaining about the system. I’ve decided to do my part and “be the change I wanted to see.”

So if you want to learn step by step techniques on how to land big clients and have them pay you to manage their social media.

"When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

This is one of my favorite quotes because it illustrates the way the majority of people think.

Before I opened up my real estate course, with my business partner Cole Hatter, many people I spoke to about real estate equated

Renting a house with being poor, and buying a house with being rich.

But if you want to separate yourself from the masses, you have to have to think differently then the masses.

Because the reality of the situation is that there are many celebrities who rent their homes as opposed to buying them.

So do they rent because they can't afford their homes?

Of course not.

So when should you buy versus when should you rent?

What do you do with your income? Where do you place it to get the highest rates of returns?

In this video I talk about the secrets of how the wealthy invest their money.

Rihanna is one of the most recognized figures in the world.

And if you ever have the pleasure of meeting her, it won't be hard to tell why.

When I meet individuals with the accomplishments of Rihanna I try to think extremely practically.

So after my conversation with her, I had these two thoughts:

1) Why is Rihanna so loved?

2) How can I apply that to my own life?

The answer to why Rihanna is so loved is evident in our conversation.

Despite her popularity and riches,

Rihanna is still extremely humble.

And this is exactly what sets her apart from most other celebrities and people in general.

There's so much misconception about the word hustle. At times hustle is extremely necessary. This is especially true when you're starting out on your entrepreneurial journey. But hustle is a means to an end, it's not a goal. Your goal should be to create a sustainable business model, that if you put a great team behind it, can run without you being in the day-to-day. Having a sustainable business will allow you to spend time with your spouse, your kids, your friends and your loved ones. You'll also have time to hit the gym, a place that you've neglected for so long. Your goal shouldn't be to purely hustle. Your goal should be to live a long, healthy and fulfilled life. Set your sights on living that life instead, although, you might have to hustle at times to get there...

Why are you so afraid? So timid? So fearful? If you're anything like me when I first started out, you feel these emotions. But have you ever asked yourself WHY? Maybe it's because you feel that you don't know enough. However, in my experience, most businesses don't know what they're doing either. So lucky you! Warren Buffett once said that he too used to be scared of the real world when he was in college. But when he graduated, he said, he soon realized that most people in the real world were rarely qualified to do anything BIG. And that's the sad truth about business. People are either too lazy to become knowledgable in their field, or they are simply just misguided. But if you put in the effort that the other 99% of people don't, then you WILL stand out from the crowd.

How do you build a business with little or no experience? It’s simpler than you may think. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in my 20+ years of entrepreneurship, it’s that most businesses are bad at this one key thing. And that key thing is marketing. You see, most businesses spend way too much time bettering their product. And they don’t spend enough time making sure that their product is actually known. Now I’m not saying that building the best product is a bad thing to do. But it leaves a vulnerability in many businesses, if equipped with the proper know-how, could potentially earn you a lot of money. Check out how Joe Soto built a 7-figure businesses using this one simple strategy.

You want to be an entrepreneur? You shouldn't be. Well, at least you shouldn't optimize for it. Your main goal should be to live a good life and then everything else should only support that vision. Entrepreneurship, or whatever else you do for your career, is just a means to an end. Far too many people often focus on the wrong things, and then before they realize that they got burned, it's too late...
