Success Rule - If you want to be Badass:

1. Surround yourself only with badasses


2. Surround yourself with people who are on their way to becoming badasses

These two only work if you follow the third rule:

3. Be a badass yourself!

Rank yourself on a scale from 1-10, focus on yourself and bump it up. Then rank those around you. What I do is rank my employees, if you work for me you are either already a badass, or I can see you potentially becoming a badass. I am not going to waste my time trying to work on you and improve your business skills.

Ranking family is often hard, but necessary. You don't need to excommunicate anyone, you can just reduce the amount of time you spend with those who are not badass.

Snapchat: "tailopez1" - This has got to stop. People being proud before they have accomplished anything. F#%k that. Train until you're a master. Then congratulate yourself after.

I had Murray Newlands, a contributor to Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine from the Silicon Valley, over at my house to speak about the two M's every entrepreneur wants to learn more about - marketing and motivation.

Murray says that it is important to focus on what your customer’s problem is and how you can solve that. Then you have to communicate how you are solving that problem in a way that people will understand.

You have to understand your target persona and ask:

- Who is my person?
- What resonates with them?
- What do they love?
- How do I combine what they love with my product so they can absorb it?

Doing these really well are the keys to successful marketing.

What is the best way to reach the exact audience that you're targeting as an entrepreneur?

Everyone wants to be great. Most are relegated to the status quo. I get thousands of people telling me daily about their hopes and dreams. But will they work for them... will you?

I played some NBA basketball with All-Star Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers the other day.

You can tell in sports interviews and on the NBA news that he's a nice guy with social skills. When I hung out with him, he made me feel welcome - he even gave me a pair of Chris Paul Player Exclusives. He's present in the moment.

People don't remember what you do, they remember how you make them feel.

Chris Paul is ruthless when he plays. But when you're hanging out he makes you feel good - and that's a real skill.

What can you learn from Chris Paul to apply in your life?
