How To Get Started In Business

– How do I get started in business? I know a lot of selling
and marketing techniques. How can I implement them? (energetic music) (engine revving) It doesn’t matter how
many techniques you know. In business, nothing
happens until you make a sale. It’s not about how many
selling techniques you know, You need to go out there and sell something. Sell your product, sell your
service in exchange of money. It’s commerce. That’s what business is. It’s adding value to the marketplace, solving a problem, fulfilling a need in exchange of money, dollars. People vote with their wallets. What you say doesn’t matter. You might say your product’s
the best in the world. If no one is willing to buy
it, it doesn’t mean anything. You gotta pull the trigger. You gotta go ask for the sale. You can’t be weak and afraid and shy. You gotta go out and get it, and ask for the sale. So, you get some rejection. So, people say no to you. Who cares? So, you know all these techniques. So, you know 365 sex position. You cannot get laid on a Friday night. What difference does it make? What, you still go home alone, right? And now you say, “Oh, let me
learn the 388th positions.” Can’t even use one! Can’t even use one! You gotta go out and do it. All the theory you have,
you gotta prove it, to see if it’s valid or not. Not thinking about it,
not reading about it, not watching video about
it, you gotta do it! You got to do it, man.

  1. Do I need to wageslave if I got zero money? I'm 20 and don't have any magical computer freelancer skills I can sell lol

  2. You really motivate me a lot. I have a sales background as well and just started my own Amazon FBA business. I was able to make $12,000 within in my first month by investing $629. ๐ŸŽ‰

  3. How to get started Is to JUST GO AND START. No procrastinating ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธCanโ€™t start a business if you donโ€™t start. That goes for doing research, exploring, watching things and even going out to network ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

  4. Omg your word so real. Your bussiness is when you start selling. Loving every single of your word. God bless you MR DAN.

  5. Agreed!! Just sell anything, the hardest time is the first time. ๐Ÿ’ช
    By the 1000th sale, that's when your "sales technique" start to come in handy.

  6. Very important is to actually get started, put yourself out there and take action. Great video Dan. Love from a small growing youtuber ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Dan, i saw you to get 2 million subscription from 100k ,

  9. Lool that analogy about โ€˜if you know 365 sex positions but donโ€™t get laid what difference does it makeโ€™๐Ÿ˜‚ love it

  10. Towards the end I was gonna say it's like getting a relationship. You can talk about techniques all you want and it means nothing.

  11. When I watch these videos, I do my best to listen with intent and soak up the knowledge and wisdom provided…but I lost it at the sex position analogy lol

  12. Hello Dan Lok Love Your Honest And Direct Approach. Never Been Or Never Thought Of Being At Least A Half Ass Sales Person Other Than Just Selling Water-Melons And I Think I Was Pretty Good At It To Be Honest As A Very, Very Young Teen-Ager With My Oldest Brother Of My Other Older Eight Brothers! But Hearing You Speak Sure Woke Me Up After All This Years With Your Awesome And Dynamic WISDOM; Sort Of Reminds Me Of Bruce Lee For Sure! I Found Out The Root Of My Problem Was My Older Brother Bless His Soul He Was So Interested In Just Making His Chicago Roll Kind Of Greedy If You Know What I Mean And Not Educating Me In The Law Of Ecomics! And As My Great Friend And Kindred Spirit Bruce Lee Used To Say HUMILITY Which My Older Brother Definitedly Did'nt Have. In A Big Nut-Shell He Was My Worse Insperation Which Rubbed Me Of My Self-Confidence. I Thank Heaven For People Just Like You And Bruce Lee.( I Remember Telling Him I Always Used To Run Home After Football Practice To Watch My Favored Movie The Green Hornet And Of Course Signed Me Up Right Their And Then No Questions Asked. He Definitely Knew I Was'nt Lying With His Intrinsic Zen Spiritual Mind)(Who- Was My Master Sensi And Teacher For Only Three Weeks As A Vulonteer Live Dummy Which Seemed More Like A Whole Year With His Condenced Martial-Arts In Wing Chung And Enjoyed Every Minute Of It, Before Being Deployed To South Korea To Camp Casey In 1971 From Seattle Wa Where We Had Our Exhibitions All Over Seattle, YMCA, YWCA AND Collegies)-With The U.S. Army 138th Infintry Division Regimen! And Also Remember Bruce Lee Telling Me That Don't Ever Go Out And Imatate Any Successful Personality Or Anyone For That Matter; That Being Yourself Unique And Intrinsic Was Way Much Better Which I Took To Heart Than But Kind Of Rubbed Of After Finding Out About His Death Which Hit Me Like A Ton Of Bricks But I Will Say Love All Of My Brothers Although Bruce Lee Was My Closest Brother Out Of My Nine Brothers. (He Really Knew Everything About Me Like My Weaknesses And Strong Points About Me Like Pushing The Right Buttons, Making Me Laugh Profusely Since About His Workouts Were About 60% A Big Jokester Always Making Us Laugh But When It Came Down To Business He Was Dead Serious Working Us To The Ground And Enjoying It 100%) Before Even Telling Him Like A Psychic Or A Prophet. I Believe It Came From His Enormous Humility And Yes He Did Have A Violent Which I Believe Kept Him Balance. He Will Be Dearly โค๏ธ Missed!!

  13. Yeah okay but how? Starting from zero woth nothing to sell but the desire to… What do I do? What do I look for? Who do I look for? Who do I talk to? What types of companies should I work for? This video had nothing about HOW to get started, only that you should.

  14. I've got another question for the boss in the bentley series.

    As someone in school (I'm 16 years old) how do you know whether you should carry on, or should drop out. I've watched your "how to know when it's time to quit your job" videos and all the points you covered applied to me, but do you think there's a disconnect between the workplace and school. I've got no capital, or networks to take my business Ideas into fruition. However, I am proficient with stock trading and am quite an articulate individual, so I could take up a copy writing job.

    Thank you sifu

  15. It's pretty short video but very usefull thanks a lot

  16. Hey Dan Lok, Iโ€™ve wanted to start a business since 13 years old and right now I am 14. Iโ€™ve watched hundreds of videos about entrepreneur, business ideas, successful business man advice, like Iโ€™ve watched and read lots of ideas from Elon musk and how his life started. I know how to start a business, but the question is what type of business for a 14 year old?

  17. Selling has changed so much in todayโ€™s market Dan! It used to be easy to sell any service or product. The only way to sell today is to become extraordinary in the market. The typical is no longer accepted.

  18. Hey Dan, I have been watching you since last three years. I'm a big fan of your work.
    I'm 19 years old and currently, I'm pursuing Charted Accountancy course. I have been doing lot of labor for this degree. But I think I would do better if I learn high income skills. I'm in dilemma.

  19. Damn and its just that simple. I've learned a ton about business principles and how to sell/market but I've realized it doesn't matter none of it until you go out there and make a fuckin' SALE. Sell something NOW. That's all there is to it.

  20. Thanks so much for the awesome video Dan ๐Ÿ”ฅ This will definitely help me Grow my Business and Become Wealthy!! Keep it up! ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ™Œ

  21. Mr. Lok. I got a question. My mom invested in a company. After a while the company invited everyone that invested for a workshop and to take a look. But they only said, the limit is 2 persons. So you can only take 1 person with you.
    Is this a statement to respect? My mom invested in a company and we could't take a look with me and my dad

  22. Loved the sex position rant. ๐Ÿ˜‚ So true though. Reminds me of the quote โ€œIf more information were the answer, we'd all be billionaires with perfect abs.โ€ – it's about the execution and actually taking action. Let's do this… ๐Ÿ’ช

  23. @danlok what is the best way or key points to introduce your service to other people through direct message on social media?

  24. Dan, I've done it! (the first step at least)
    After 9 months of selling b2b on commission, and adding value to my clients, I quit my old job as a waiter and am now working full time in my mentor's office!
    I started as a complete novice, with very poor communication skills, but now I'm getting somewhere.

    Everybody can have faith as long as they get going!

  25. Oh man am laughing so hard @ 1:10.
    I do way less than 365 positions but I got the job done nicely every time! Love you man.
