“The first thing I always like to say is, what are your goals? Because, you know, I want to ensure that I'm a good match for you if you’re working with me. Then the second thing, too, is if you’re not, I just want you to have a vision of what you want your life to look like. So that the best thing that I can do is tell a person to pick up a book that's got to do with real estate.” In Season 2, Episode 7 of the Boss Uncaged...

“Just put your head down and keep trying to not be afraid to ask questions and learn from those who went first. I mean, so much of my business was honestly built on mirroring and pestering other people that I saw were successful. When I had questions, I picked about five real estate agents that I knew were doing a good job and smart and really driving their business and would just kind of rotate through who I call with questions. I...

“The first thing is, just start. So many people overthink everything. And then what happens is when you start, all that goes out the window anyway. So why don’t you just start? Like you can make the most perfect business plan. Doesn’t mean anything unless you actually start. So just start. And then equally important is not to stop because you’re going to run into some hurdles. It may take 10 years to hit a grand slam, but it doesn’...

“I think the first thing is to, as I said before, work on your self-discipline, do something in your business every single day, do something in your craft every day. I used to get crazy looks from family members. I would be on vacation and I got my laptop. I'm on a beach and I'm opening it up and I'm doing something for 15, 20 minutes. ‘Ty, you’re on vacation, you’re not supposed to be working?’ No, I'm going t...

Do your research. Yeah, you need to research the business that you're going into. Sometimes you jump too fast and you don't know the business and that's when you get frustrated. And so you need to do your research. And the tools are out here now. I mean, when I had my business, it was even less. But just when I was coming up, we didn't have the Internet and all of these tools available. So utilize these tools. http...

"Think in terms of humans first. Versus technology first, the technology will always change, but what won't change are basic human behavior and human psychology principles. So if you can start there, start with why people make decisions." - Andrew J. Miner

If anyway you can figure it out, don't take a bank loan, to do what you want to do. Because then you're working for the bank and that's very stressful, especially if you're living to a time like this where all your best plans in the world might have changed. There's individuals out there who, if your idea is good enough, they're going to believe in you and they will want to invest in your idea. It might take...

Don't let these naysayers tell you that's an oversaturated market for you to open up yet another cigar lounge or that this is why I don't support black businesses or we need to do better or this is why I don't vote or this is why I just don't take no for an answer. Don't get stopped. Don't let anybody else determine or put opinions in your head that take over what you feel in your heart. That is a huge p...

"For me, it was the best career move I've ever made. It changed my life in a substantial way. I mean, the quality of living for my family, my immediate family, and then now I can see for the legacy that is going to leave behind this change dramatically. So what I would say is, if you're interested in it, pursue it, step out on faith, which is what I did at the time. I stepped out on faith and said, look, I'm going t...

Don't be afraid to fail because you're going to fail a million times and fail could just mean you're going to find you don't like it. So just be willing to experiment all kinds of things, different environments, different people. And you want to work by yourself or with other people. One of the things about having a food truck is the hours of having the food truck would have been Friday, Saturday, Sunday, which were...

Things don't just happen by chance, they just don't. And if you guys think it does, it doesn't. It comes again in the mind. And when you put it out there and you live by faith. Having that faith as small as a mustard seed as I know, we've heard that so many times, that's the thing. I mean, even Jesus says, you know, he talked about this so many times about belief for anybody that puts their heart out, their God ...

Always stay humble and don't let anybody knock you from your dreams because everybody has like that, the butterflies in their belly and they are. But they just know that I'm not supposed to be here or I need to be at another level. So number one listened to that. But don't let anybody stop you from your dreams. And I think the other thing I would always tell people is find a mentor, the find a mentor where you want what...

"Have a huge appetite for success. Be hungry because if you get content very easily, you want to push yourself to the limits and even go beyond the limits and actually see how far you can go, because then you know how far you can go truly. Surround yourself with people who have scars, not physically, but we can show for themselves that they understand what it's like to be in the trenches. I find it hilarious when we're ...

"When you have a sense of empathy, that is you putting yourself in the position of the clients.

So I may do a coaching call with someone, or maybe it's reaching out to a customer because I like to call my customers and say hello every once in a while. So I'll reach out and do that kind of stuff. Then I might go into looking at doing some research. I love researching things to see if I can find some ideas. And the other thing that does that, that I'm consistent on Fridays, every Friday I go to Starbucks every singl...
