Step 1.) Declare your independence 2.) Fight and take chances to gain your freedom
Good morning, everybody. Happy July 4th, happy Independence Day. I hope everybody is doing great today. It’s Independence Day today, the day our country declared independence from the British. How many of you have been thinking about rebelling, and going out on your own, and creating freedom in your life? Hopefully all of you have. When are you going to claim independence?
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Lee Godbold. I am the cofounder of Junk Removal Authority, and Junk Doctors. I started Junk Doctors in 2012. I built it up to a $2,000,000 a year business. I started a Junk Removal Authority. It’s a completely unique concept to show people how to do how what we did with Junk Doctors to do the exact same thing. We’re not a franchise. We sell complete business systems. We will get you in business, but we’re not going to handcuff you to us. We sell AdWords management, and other advertising services, complete websites – you just pay a monthly rate, no upfront charge -, pay per job advertising where we take on the risk of running AdWords and search engine optimization. We’ve put all the services out there to try and help people make a decision and encourage people to build their business to where it’s successful, to where it’s independent of them, to where they are independent.
A lot of you all been thinking about going out on your own and doing this this junk removal business, or going out and doing any sort of business, and you just haven’t made the decision. You haven’t declared your independence, you ought to do that today. That’s not going to be easy and it doesn’t. Going out on your own might not be for everybody. Those of you making a lot of big time money and all, if you’re making hundreds and thousands a year, it might be best for you to keep your current job, start putting steps in place, maybe start a business on the side, which you can do. That way, you’ve got some independence. You’re working towards independence. This isn’t going to be something that’s going to happen to extremely quick. The revolutionary war was an eight-year war. It was eight years, and people will fight you. Just because you declare independence that doesn’t mean you don’t have a war to fight at that point. You’ve got people that are going to fight against you. You’ve got employees that are going to fight against you. You’ve got vendors fight against you. Some customers aren’t going to be happy, they’re going to fight against you. Just like muskets, it’d be muskets, there’d be muskets that wouldn’t fire, people died because their muskets wouldn’t fire. You’re going to have trucks, and equipment that give you issue. You’re going to have to always fight through it. You might get sued, you will have insurance problems – we had a $51,000 worker’s comp bill before that had to get paid. There’s going to be a war, and you’re constantly fighting. You’re going to win some, you’re going to lose some, but overall you have to always be pushing forward. It all starts with declaring your independence.
Those of you out there on the truck right now, if you’re out on your trick every single day, you’re a hard worker. I’ll give that to you. I did it for a little over a year, and there’s many of you all that has been doing that for 8 or 10 years – you’re a hard worker. If that’s what you enjoy, if that’s what you consider independent, great. But it’s really not. It’s very, very, very limited. If you’re not working, you’re not making money. There’s certain steps you have to take. You haven’t yet declared your independence. There’s certain steps you must take to get to that point. It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be scary sometimes. There’s going to be battles you fight that you think you’re going to die. There’s going to be steps you take where you spend a lot more money than you ever thought you’d spend on anything. That’s what’s got to happen. If you are going to get off the truck, if you’re going to get independent, you’re going to have to make serious investments in advertising, and equipment, and people. You’re going to have to trust some people. The generals have to trust everybody underneath of them. All of that is something that’s got to get done if you’re going to truly become independent.
In a Junk Removal Business, it’s going to be a minimum of three years, probably closer to five or six, before you’re truly independent. I did it in about four, and then I started Junk Removal Authority, and I put the pressure right back on me. Junk Doctors is up where it can run without me, make a couple hundred thousand dollars a year, even if I didn’t work on it at all. That’s what we want to get you all to the position to do. If you like working then keep working to pocket that salary, otherwise pay yourself a manager. Today, July 4th, 2018, declare your independence and start making steps to creating freedom in your life. We’re here for you if you need us. Everybody has a great day. Happy 4th of July, everybody.
