3 Things We Learned
Use social media differently to achieve goals
Most young people use social media to connect with friends. Casey used it to connect with mentors, create opportunities for himself and start his entrepreneurial journey.
We can’t sit around and wait for opportunities
Opportunities don’t just happen, we actually have to go out, impact and help other people. If we help people get what they want, we’ll get what we want too.
We can create our own opportunities to connect with people
If we want to grow a bigger network, don’t just attend masterminds, create one. If we partner with the right people, we can easily build something that will attract people.
Casey went from being an injured and depressed teen athlete, to connecting with and being mentored by some of the most inspirational people in the world. He is living proof that getting around the right people can be the key to unlocking everything we want in our lives. Once we get around the right people, money and opportunities will follow, provided we’re willing to do the work.
