I got an email yesterday from a guy who asked why I didn’t update my Vlog on the weekend.
He said if it was meant to be a daily Vlog, why should he subscribe if it wasn’t going to be truly daily?
My answer was pretty simple. I told him that I don’t hustle on my weekends. It’s that easy. I don’t hustle on the weekend because I have a life I need to live outside of my business.
I don’t hustle because to me, getting that level of added success by sacrificing my Sunday isn’t worth the hangover of not having more time on my Monday.
