Sponsored By my Facebook Course: Ready? Set…AD!
When I left my job at Facebook I knew that I wanted to continue helping parents figure out how to leverage Facebook Ads to build their businesses so that they could build a life with the freedom and flexibility to be the parents that they wanted to be to their kids – just like I did. For a long time I resisted creating a digital course because I love working with people 1:1… but, then I realized that my resistance to a course was actually limiting the impact I could have. With a course, I will be able to help exponentially more people than I would ever be able to help 1:1 and today I am so excited to announce that this episode is brought to you by my Brand spanking new digital course: Ready? Set… Ad! The course is launching soon, and when you enroll you’re going to learn everything you need to know to run Facebook Ads that consistently put your message in front of the people who want and need your product – and most importantly that you’re making money! Visit ReadySetAd.com to learn more – but don’t delay, we’re launching soon!
- Armando explains the different types of Legacy:
- #1 – Personal: what you leave for the people who matter most (family/friends)
- #2 – Impact: the “big” things like curing cancer.
- We all have legacy – but they all will last a different duration of time. The more time you invest now to create a deep impact – the longer your legacy will have an influence.
- I made a connection to Business:
- Vision: the thing you want to create (the big picture)
- Mission: the actions you will take to get it. (the tactics to achieve it)
- Armando shares the story of his childhood and how his dad impacted his life. His dad owned a construction company and his mom worked for a developer. Armando spent a lot of time working hard for his dad in the hot Miami weather. He knew he didn't want to do THAT, but he did know that he wanted a similar relationship with his children. His dad also influenced his love of training and fitness. He always knew he wanted to be a husband and wife.
- Armando has set many goals for himself and uses a system of micro habits tracked by an app called Don't Break the Chain (iTunes Link). He has completed each of his micro habits for almost 800 days. He talks through how he chose the habits he wanted to track and how he adapts his goals when necessary so that they are always attainable. Even his 9-year-old son has started tracking his own micro habits, and he's been exercising for 43 days in a row – and there have been nights that he almost forgot, but he got out of bed in the middle of the night to do jumping jacks, squats, pushups, and sit-ups!
- 5 Key Components to Legacy
- Awareness – Legacy exists!
- Vision – what are you going to create?
- Purpose – your “why.” What is powering your vision?
- Process – Laying out the strategic step-by-step process
- Implementation – Start Acting on your plan. (Reference to Discipline Equals Freedom by Jocko Willink)
