I feel like a political candidate responding to an opponent. It’s weird that I normally suggest my clients do these type of responses and I’m having to do it myself. But, I guess business is a lot like political campaigns.
So, I’ve been traveling a lot lately trying to slam in all my travel before baby boy number three arrives here shortly. And as I’m out on the road pitching to clients, I’m hearing for the first time that some of my competitors out there that are pitching business against me are saying that, “Wesley no longer pays attention to PUSH – all he does is train for events and drink craft beer.”
Damn…that’s a ridiculous statement.
Look, I’m productive. I get up at 3:45 in the morning and I’m out the door by 4:30 AM. I’m done with my training before most of my competitors wake up in the morning. I don’t drink a lot of craft beer because of my training. And, I spend maybe 5-10% max of my time on Frothy Beard related activities – it’s connected to the office so, I’m able to just swing over and handle things whenever I want.
But, what drives me the craziest is that – I’m out there hustling. It’s 7 o’clock in the morning and I’m at the office.
I am up working out for two, sometimes three hours and at the office before my competitors even wake up in the morning.
I’m sorry that you guys (my competitors) are lazy as hell and can’t keep up with my work ethic and hustle.
But, while you’re binge watching Netflix at night, I’m in the bed by 8:00 PM, awake at 3:45 AM the next morning, getting my shit done and at the office before you fools even have your first cup of coffee.
There are a lot of things that I’m willing to take when people talk poorly of me. This is not one of them.
I spend probably 50-60 hours a week on Push Digital, growing this company, bringing in new clients, just hustling so I can keep paying people because livelihoods depend on what I do.
So, if you’re watching this and you’re one of my competitors, look – we can compete all day on work and I can disagree with you. I think our agency’s better, our creative is better. But, one thing you’re never going to beat me on is hustle.
And, if you want to try then bring it.
I will outwork you any day of the week.
That’s how I’m able to build my company, complete Ironman, be a good husband, be a good father AND start other companies all at the same time.
You can’t outwork me. Don’t even try.
You can go and try to say these things in pitches, trying to make it your differentiator.
That’s fine. Because my differentiator is that I work harder than you and I always will.
