“You came into this life with the only real possessions that ever matter — your body, the time that you have to live, your energy, the thoughts and ideas unique to you, and your autonomy. But over the years you tend to give all of this away. You spend years working for others — they own you during that period. You get needlessly caught up in people’s games and battles, wasting energy and time that you will never get back.
“You come to respect your own ideas less and less, listening to experts, conforming to conventional opinions. Without realizing it you squander your independence, everything that makes you a creative individual.” More here

First you learn the biz basics. Either 1) from people who tell you stuff to do and you try it, or 2) you futz through the various activities on your own, trial and error.
Once you have the basics down, you must, to succeed big, find a way to stand out. Making everything your own, like 50 Cent suggests, can help you stand out. Here’s how:
Stop conforming and doing and saying everything everyone else does. How will you stand out if you sound the same as everyone else? Where’s the edge in that?
In the How To Attract a Market Seminar starting December 2, I will show you how to stand out. So you can get the attention of peeps who matter to your business? Because you’ll learn to lead with you – your ideas, your why’s, your story. That’s what 50 Cent did, it’s what Ray Charles and Johnny Cash did (scroll half way down).
Do not underestimate yourself, your creativity, your talents, hopes, dreams and your story. Offer these up to others. What if they come?
