Jon’s Question or Topic
At fourteen years old, Jon has been building six businesses focusing on eCommerce, affiliate marketing, graphic design freelancing, and writing eBooks. Since he has a lot of activities, he is having trouble splitting his energy among them to the point that they’re becoming less successful. So Jon is considering if he would downsize the things he does or would continue them. Jon also asked about what to do with his Instagram accounts that are niche pages where he posts motivational content and stuff but it takes a lot of his time and it doesn’t really reflect on himself.
Gary’s Story and Advices
With regard to his concern about his six businesses, Gary suggests Jon to go wider. His intuition is that Jon built some of these for the arbitrage of money, so he doesn’t think that Jon should go all-in on any of them.
With regards to his 2 Instagram accounts, Gary told Jon to sell them. Gary also suggests Jon to learn everything about art and science. Jon should run ads and make content on every platform. This will be a good skill set for Jon all throughout his life.
