As you’ll find out in the first minute of the video, this week’s Tom Ferry Show is not geared toward me (as I am sadly 45). This week he’s speaking directly to Millenials and younger. That said, I think there’s great advice for everyone here.
When Tom was 21, he sat down with his mentor, Bill Mitchell, and asked what he should be focusing on so he can be successful. Bill told him not to focus on money until he’s 30. Instead, he told him to think about becoming the kind of guy who would be worthy of making the kind of money you want to make. Your peak earning years isn’t until your 50s and 60s. Your income is in direct correlation to what you deliver to the marketplace, so focus on that.
