Welcome to the “Making of a DM.” Are you too immature to be a business-owner? This is going to rock the boat. So, with that said, let's get started.

Mark: Hey there, it’s your boy, Mark Evans DM, dream-maker, deal-maker. What else can we be today? In business and in life, as you know, we wear lots of hats. Daddy-maker, I don't even know if that makes sense. [00:58.4]

But I'm sitting here in beautiful Parkland, Fla. Actually, once I'm done recording this show today to you, I’ll be heading out golfing with two of my buddies, actually three of my buddies, Brian, Matt, and Mike, talking about business. I don't really golf a whole lot. It's interesting, I live here on the course, right on the hole, on one of the holes, and I'm just busy, focused on some big stuff in life and business and it's a big commitment. I'm not trying to get better at golf. I might golf here two times a year, that's it, in seven months.

Today is a big day, but one of my buddies, I call him the “half-a-billion-dollar man”, one of the guys in the group, he's got a company worth about a half a billion. The other guy is a huge rehabber up in the Orlando area, does many multimillion-dollar renovation deals. The other buddy owns a lot, a lot of businesses as well. As we're on the course, mostly I’ll probably be done by the whole by 9:00 or 11:00, worn out, ready to get back to the house and crush it.

But on today's show, I want to share some stuff with you guys. I’m very blessed to be here. This is straight talk, real talk with you. I'm not trying to pull any punches, but I'm here to give you the real insights of business and life of a real deal-maker of your life. [02:08.0]

Before I get started, as I always do, I’d like to say, thank you so much to everyone who is downloading the show, listening to the show and sharing the show. As you know, it doesn't cost any money to be here except your time, which is the biggest investment that you could make and I appreciate that and I do respect that. I'm not here to just jibber-jabber about bullshit and make you feel good. I'm here to tell you the truth to help you become better and accomplish more, because that's why you're here. You want to be a better human being and give at a higher level.

Thank you to everyone leaving five-star reviews, buying the books. I haven't publicly shared this out loud a whole lot, but this year, I'm actually you writing two new books. I have something really big going on that I'm probably going to be sharing here in the next week or two. Really, really big. Actually, it could be a game-changer in many ways. I mean, I'm excited to share it with you. [02:53.8]

On today's show, I’ll share the good, and then I’ll get to the really good stuff to help you. But it's cool, on Saturday, I got to go and hang out with my buddy. He sold a company for 1$15 million and he worked his ass off for 15 years to accomplish that and it was awesome. We hung out on his brand new yacht he just bought with some really, really big people. The people's names, you would definitely know who they are, and I’m not here to brag or boast. It’s just that that was what I was doing on Saturday all day, and the truth is I missed my family. I didn't take my wife and kids. It was a really high-level business strategy meeting and all that stuff, which was cool, but really just connecting.

What's funny about this meeting, like I said, he's my buddy, I've never met him in person. He and I have communicated on social for a long time, back and forth, connecting, saying, “Great job,” inspiring each other, pushing each other, sharing funny stuff, doing funny emojis, whatever. Saturday was the first time we sat down and met, and broke bread together face to face—so don't ever underestimate the power of social media. [04:01.7]

This guy lives in Miami and another state part-time like I do. Not in Ohio, he's in another area up there in the Midwest, but really cool stuff. There are a lot of amazing people out there, so don't ever get it twisted that the world is bad, they're against you and all this stuff. This guy has got a crazy story and I'm excited to share him one day with you guys and inspire from his things.

Today I'm not sure how long the show will be, 20 minutes, 40 minutes, however long it needs to be. I'm going to hammer home a real point, and as I'm sitting here going over my notes, I was like, dude, I see so many terrible things happen in people's so-called businesses. But what I want you to do is understand, and I want to ask you a question. That's what I really want to do. The question is, are you mentally immature to be a business owner? [04:57.6]

You understand, being a business owner is fucking hard for a real business owner. I'm not talking about a pussy business owner that says they're a business owner, but if they stop working, everything else stops. You're not a business owner. You have a job. I'm talking about someone that really wants to be a real business owner, and I could tell you right now, I used to be this guy.

I was an emotional wreck, literally practically shitting my pants, 24-7, scared that everything was going to fall down on me, and it served me in no way, shape or form. Actually, I was living in fear 24-7 because I thought everyone was trying to go after me. I thought everything was breaking. I created a fucking mountain now to every molehill and wormhill I saw because that's what I did. I was very emotionally immature. Today, you could serve me with a lawsuit and I’ll sit there and smoke a cigar and laugh about it. It's part of the game. [05:53.8]

See, in business, you're going to fail. Every fucking day, you're going to fail. I have employees quitting. We have employees growing, which is awesome and, again, not quitting because they hate us. There are humans involved, so there's shit going on with everyone's lives. We have growth issues. We have marketing issues. We have tech issues. We have a lot fucking issues, but I don't sit here and freak the fuck out on everybody like I see some of these guys do.

The truth is, the reason I'm bringing this up is, like I said, I’ve had a theory about this. I've had a theory. I always ask myself, why are more people not successful in business? I genuinely want to help people be more successful. I could give them the fucking roadmap to make a million dollars in a week. I could show them a webinar that I’ve done in an hour that makes many millions of dollars in one hour. I could show them a business plan and I think they can go out and create a million dollars a year, whatever it is, and yet they sit there and they can't do it. It's not that they can't do it. It's, what are they not doing that they could be able to do it? Because I truly believe anybody listening to this could generate many millions of dollars a year in business. [07:09.5]

Then I ask myself, why are most not? Why are most overwhelmed? Why are most scared? Why are most living fucking barely paycheck to paycheck? Why do they have no money in the bank? Why do they think spending 10 grand on themselves a year and marketing is a lot of money? Why are they worried about spending $10,000 a year on a CRM that makes them more money in their business? Like I said, the reason, today, has been confirmed.

Guys, I have over 350 partners in different businesses and I’ve really seen why some partners are massively fucking successful and the majority have fucking failed miserably. It's because they, as humans, are not mentally mature enough to succeed at any level in business. It's real. They're emotional fucking wrecks and it disgusts me because they're not trying to get better. [08:07.0]

They might not even know they're doing it, which is even more fucked up, right? They're sitting around, “Dude, but no one has called me back.” Okay, when did you call? “Three minutes ago.” Hey, dipshit, give it 24 hours. Go, do something else.

Whatever happened to being calm, cool, and collected? Whatever happened to being patient? Whatever happened to being like, make a plan and execute the plan? Not make a plan, freak the fuck out; redo the plan, freak the fuck out; redo the plan. “Dude, this shit doesn't work. It's a scam. I'm out.” That's what most people do. The truth is I'm fucking sick and tired of dealing with them, and when I get sick and tired, I delete them. [08:54.2]

If you're working with great people, then real-life business shit happens. It's called life and business. You freaking out does not solve, does not help, does not do anything productive at all. Zilch. No one wins, and yet most people continue to do this stupid shit. Your emotional immaturity is holding you back from the life you really want. Your emotional immaturity is holding you back from the life you want.
See, you're about KPIs, key performance indicators. You're learning about how to grow, hire A-players, but you're not doing the real fucking work. Emotional intelligence, emotional decision-making, understanding why you do what you do, understanding why you can never get ahead of the game. [10:01.8]

There's a common trait in everything that you're doing. Go into the bathroom and look in the mirror. That's your common trait, i.e. you. If you're not getting the results you want, it's not because they don't exist. It's because you aren't putting in the pieces and place, and/or [don't] have the emotional maturity level to make it a reality.

See, everyone talks about why most sports athletes go bankrupt after they get out of the League. It's because they don't have emotional financial maturity. They don't understand this shit. Why do people who win the lottery go bankrupt, the majority of them? It’s because they have no financial maturity. If they did, they'd have fucking money. That's how I always could tell if someone is full of shit. [10:53.0]

By the way, there are a lot of people full of shit online. They can say one thing one day—and I have a book I’ve been writing that will be released for sure in the future, many years from now, but possibly—but there are a lot of people online that you know that are so full of shit, it makes me fucking sick.

They're lying and stealing from people 24-7. They're saying bullshit. They're not doing what they say and I know it, because a lot of these fuckers owe me money. They steal. They're thieves. It's not going to make me change. It's going to make me more aware.

I'm not saying this to discourage, but to encourage you to start investing time on your brain. Start understanding why you keep fucking everything up. Start understanding why you're not investing more money in your brand, i.e. you, or your company or both. Stop fucking talking about the same problems you've been talking about five years ago.

Honestly, I'm not even joking. One of the things that make me disgusted is people talking about the same fucking problem every day, every month, every year, for 10 years. It makes zero sense to me. I genuinely don't understand it, the mentality. What are you doing to solve your problem and fucking go, get new problems? “Well, Mark, you don't understand.” I don't need to fucking understand. I know the truth. [12:17.0]

See, people are pussified. People are looking for blame, not solutions. I mean, just look around. If you fall into this category, you’d better get your head on straight, because, if not, you're going to be broke your whole life and you're going to watch opportunity pass you by. So many things are going to happen.

It reminds me of the people that buy stock at the top and sell at the bottom. It reminds me of people that buy crypto at the top, and when that has a dip, they freak the fuck out and they sell everything and they take a loss, and then now it's not them, it's crypto. Hey, dickhead, did you ever know or understand the rules of crypto? Do you understand how the stock market works? [12:57.1]

Of course, no one wants to buy the top, but it happens all the time. Someone does. Maybe you have a plan and you execute the plan. Buy it. Why? If you're just trying to get rich quick, you're always going to be fucking broke, always broke. Even if you have money in bank, you're mentally broke because you're fucking playing the game that no one wins long-term. It doesn't work. Buy with a 3-, 5- or 10-year window or longer. If you’ve got eyes like that and a thought like that and a plan, it's so much less emotional. It's easier. Take the good with the bad, the bad with the good. It's part of the game.

But why? Are you happy with what you’ve got? Are you happy with where you're at? Are you happy with how it makes you feel? I'm amazed, absolutely amazed, that people say, Oh, man, I'm doing really well, and when one fucking blip happens, they go ballistic. You can always tell who someone is in a time like that. [14:05.7]

By the way, that goes right to the root of their heart. I mean, it's right in their soul. If you're a freak out person, you're never going to succeed at the level you're capable of. It's just not congruent with growth. I'm not saying you won't have freak-out moments, but when you freak out, go hit a punching bag and take a 30-minute walk and relax before you react.

Do you text people like you're like the psycho boyfriend or girlfriend, sending 500 texts over the weekend, from midnight to 2:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to noon? Dude, calm the fuck down. Calling, emailing, texting. I get it, sometimes that's needed, but that's your norm. That's your normal go-to. Have you ever thought [about it]? [14:59.6]

Again, I used to be this person. I'm talking to me, too, back in the day, but no one ever told me this shit. I had to figure it out through frustration, agony and desperation. The squeaky wheel does not always get the oil. Oftentimes, we fucking throw the squeaky wheel in the junkyard and go get better wheels. You’ve got to ask yourself, are you the squeaky wheel? Are things always falling apart around you? I want you to be better. I want you to enjoy what real business truly gives you.

Do you understand how much opportunity exists once you understand what I'm talking about? It's endless. My anxiety doesn't come from problems. My anxiety comes from opportunities. People want to do deals with me 24-7. I can't do them all. I want to. More importantly, I want to do them with the right people. I'm more looking at the jockey before the opportunity, by the way. If the jockey is no good, the opportunity is pointless to me. I don't care about opportunity, it's everywhere. It's everywhere. [16:07.8]

But I want you to understand, you need to thought-audit on this stuff. When something breaks, what do you do? How do you feel? How do you react? How do you internalize? Like I said, in all seriousness, if I got served with lawyer papers or whatever, I'd smoke a cigar or I’d take a walk, or I’d do both. I just talk to myself about it, one, because I take responsibility for everything. “How did I not see this coming? How could I make it better in the future? What can I learn from this moment?”

Then I’ll say things in my brain as well, like why is this person such a dickhead? Why didn't they just give me a call like a real fucking man would do? Because that's who I am. I'm a real fucking man. I'm going to call you if I have a problem. I’m not going to hide behind a lawyer. I’m not going to hide behind an assistant. I'm going to fucking call you. I'll come to your office, whatever. Let's just talk, man to man, girl to girl, whatever. This is lost. [17:08.2]

The truth is social environments, social media environments, I should say, and all this online stuff has made people very like pussies. I don't know how else to say it. Keyboard raiders, like ninety-nine percent of the shit people say to me online they would never say to my face ever, but they're real fucking manly behind the computer. Real manly, right? Talking shit.

We're better than that. You want more out of life than that, right? When I made this transition, understand—and I made this early on in my career, three or four years deep back in the day when I was 21 or 22 years old—I remember, dude, I used to be a psycho. Literally, every problem was a fucking massive problem. It could be something as simple as post-it notes. It could be something as simple as my car is going on half a tank instead of a full tank. I was a psycho. [18:12.4]

Then I started hanging out with very successful people and saw how they react to situations or not react to situations. I'd pay attention to what they did, not what they said. What are they doing right now? How are they internalizing it? What steps do they take? When I sit here and I think about this, you're going to kill yourself mentally, spiritually, and emotionally, if you continue down that path, if that's who you are.

The truth is most people listening to my voice are this person. You can say what you want, but the majority, over 90 percent of the people listening are fucking messed up here in this category and no one has ever told you this. This isn’t to bear bad news. This is a breath of fresh air of opening your eyes to why one is not accomplishing what they're capable of. [19:09.2]

See, the thing is, when you get super-stressed out, it's fight or flight. Most people flight. They don't have the emotional warfare, the mentality to stick in the game of fighting for what they believe in, fighting for what they do. You don't have to believe me, just look around. Everyone is wearing a fucking mask. Everyone is talking shit, doing what they're told to do, not what they-- They're not thinking, and if they are, they're too big of pussies to stand up for themselves and believe in what they believe in. “Well, just go with the flow.” Fuck, the flow. I’m my flow. I create my own. [19:53.2]

Emotional intelligence is a very big key to success in life. If you want to be happy, if you want to be stupid, filthy rich, it's mandatory. Mandatory. You invest a lot of time and energy in this mindset. Mandatory that you lean into this and start understanding how you act or react, how to decipher if this is a problem or if it's just part of the process.

Driving down the road, you get a flat. How do you react? Get out of the car, kick the car, fucking scream, yell? Dude, pull over and say, Thank God I didn't get a wreck. Call AAA. Check your Twitter. Check your Facebook, whatever the shit you check out online. AAA pulls up, changes your tires, and you're back to business. Smile and enjoy. That's how I deal with it.

The old Mark gets out, starts screaming and cussing because I'm running late. I'm running here, I'm running there. I'm trying to do this, I'm trying to do that. All that means nothing because I'm hanging out with fucking small-minded people back then, doing small shit, talking about big things in their world, which is so small, I can't even believe we were talking about it. [21:12.2]

See, I look at guys in real estate and stuff, and business, in general, and I'm always wondering, why are the same people in the same place five years from now? Why? If you're in the game for five years and you're still in the same place, you're fucked. You're the problem. It's not the opportunity. It's not the business. It's not the product. It's not the service. It's you. It is you, one hundred percent.

How can you have the same fucking problems for five years and be in the same place? It's because you emotionally have not created this mental maturity to become better, to be better. It's hard work. You're going to want to punch things. You're going to want to scream. It's okay, do both. Don't punch people, but punch a bag. You’ve got to get out and walk. You’ve got to clear your mind. You’ve got to ask yourself better questions. [22:11.7]

See, the thing is most people can't even ask themselves questions in this moment because they're so fucking stressed out and lacks maturity to stop for a minute and think for themselves. Instead, they just massively react. Massively. Start pointing fingers. Remember, when you're pointing a finger, there are three fingers pointing right back at you. Stick your hand out and point your finger and see how many fingers are pointing back at you.

When you realize you're in control of everything that happens, good and bad, your maturity level starts to evolve. In business, shit happens. If it didn't, everyone will be fucking billionaires. Everyone would be crushing it. Everyone would be smiling. Everyone would have it easy. But that's not the case. [23:05.4]

And why is it? Is it that someone is lucky? Sometimes. The harder I work, the luckier I get. Is it because someone has a better project or service? Sometimes, but there are a lot of people that could be in the same product or service category as me, but they're not doing anything near what I'm doing. I don't even know they exist. And there are people above me, too, right? The question is, you have to ask—this is very important, very important: who do I need to become to ultimately get what I want?

Who do I need to become to ultimately get what I want? It's a question I ask myself every day. It forces me to focus on growth, not problems. Inside of growth, there are problems. There are struggles. There's pain, just like working out, going to the gym. You're sore. Your legs are sore. Your back is sore. Your body is sore. [24:10.3]

I've been working out two-a-days for many, many days now, but two-a-days, walking six or seven miles a day, working out, working, taking care of family, doing all this shit. I'm sore. My body hurts. I’ve got fucking blisters galore on my feet. But I love it. Why? Because it's progress. I'm growing from it. I'm getting leaner. I'm getting sharper. I'm getting in better shape. I'm focused.

But as I was at the Four Seasons with my wife for the last couple days with my kids down in Surfside—if you follow me on social, you saw that—I'm sitting there, thinking. I mean, guys, keep in mind, there are condos in there for $32 million for a three-bedroom condo. There are yachts everywhere. Our dinner bills are $1,000 a night, two adults and two kids. I'm not bragging and all that shit, but I'm just sharing. It's the truth. You can't have lunch without spending $200 and that's nothing. That's two drinks probably. [25:15.7]

But I'm sitting there on the beach. A beautiful day, 75, breezy, sunny. The kids are playing, my wife sitting beside me, reading. People in the corner, talking. People on another set of chairs are talking about business, the company they’ve just bought for some money. Another couple is talking about how they're glad to be in America because they're from Australia and they're not going back anytime soon.

I'm just sitting there, thinking. I see these yachts. I'm talking about $100 million, $200 million, $300 million yachts, going by fucking Honda Civics from where I'm from, and I just think, Who do I need to become to get that? Who do I need to become to build these buildings behind me that cost $800 million literally? Who am I? [26:05.4]

You understand, someone built, i.e. Isadore Sharp built the Four Seasons brand. Who do I need to become emotionally to get to where he is at, what he has created? And I'm not saying I always want it, by the way. Part of this process is that I don't want to be a corporate raider. I'm good, but who else do I need to become? What does it look like? Who can I model after that has what I want?

If you've ever read the book Four Seasons by Isadore Sharp, the guy who created Four Seasons, you would realize this guy had about 70 million chances he should have quit. The odds are against us in business and in life, period. I mean, shit, the truth is you're one in 400 trillion to even be listening to my voice, right? The best part of you could have gone down your mom's crack, your dad's back, who knows where, right? In the dad's sock. But, at the end of the day, you're here for a reason. [27:10.5]

Why are people continuously fucking it up? Because of emotional insecurity. The maturity level is lacking at the highest level. You could never handle a $100-million-a-year company with the level you're at today. You just couldn't do it because you would emotionally explode getting even remotely close to that. There are a lot of things. You're going to get punched in the face, kicked in the teeth.

I think I talked about this last week here that it’s like everyone is like, Dude, you always talk about the positive. It's not true, I talk about the negative as well, but God’s honest truth, me and everyone I roll with, my right-hand guys, dude, we understand it's just part of the game. We're walking down the road, getting fucking pecked by birds, kicked in the nuts, punched in the throat, and we keep smiling and pushing forward, and we're going to talk about it when we succeed. It’s not like, Dude, I’ll go to the house, the birds are pecking. Oh, man, someone hit me in the nuts, that hurt. It all hurts. It sucks. [28:11.5]

But do you know what’s better? Accomplishing the goal I set out to accomplish. Then what happens is we start just becoming numb to the pain. It's to be expected. Maturity levels need to step it up. You need to step up your maturity levels if you want to step up your financial levels. There's no other way.

If you want to enjoy the life that you have in front of you, this is something that you must learn about. This is something you must work for. I'm still working on it. It will never stop. I want to ring people next every fucking day, but I don't because it won't solve anything. [28:56.2]

Not only that, if my partner that's supposed to be the operator tells me fucking something and I believed him in the beginning, why am I changing what I believe now? He's telling me something I don’t want to hear. That doesn't mean he is wrong, and I can't jump down his throat because it doesn't serve anybody. I need to listen, internalize, and go from there.

I get calls all the time from partners that I have interest in. “Hey, man, we didn't hit our projections.” No shit. I've never been in a company that has. I don't say that. That's what I already know. I've worked really hard on this emotional intelligence. Every entrepreneur is optimistic. Once in a blue moon, one will project and go way over. I like that over the projections. We didn't hit it. We’ve overdone it. Good, now tell me the bad, right? For us, we have to just step it up, the maturity levels of our emotions. [30:00.8]

If you're running your days, your lives, your weeks, your months, your years, through emotions, you're going to kill yourself. Literally, through stress. One of the best ways I’ve dealt with this is I recognized that it was an issue. By the way, every single person under the moon has this issue, just at different levels, all. But I had this, I heard it. I work on it. Real practical use. Am I improving?

You can improve. You're going to get a bill, an unexpected bill, coming across your desk anytime. What do you do? “Fuck you, I ain't paying you. It's not what we agreed upon, blah, blah, blah.” I want you to stick that on your desk and look at it and think about it. I want you to internalize how you feel, angry, frustrated, deceived, pissed off, overwhelmed, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. [30:55.2]

I want you to think about, if you say nothing, what happens? You pay it and you live your life. It could be a dollar. It could be $100. It could be $1,000, whatever it is. The truth is, in the grand scheme of things, it's typically irrelevant. I'm not saying [it’s irrelevant] if someone is blatantly trying to rip you off, but just remember, you're the one that brought that person into your life anyway. That's a whole other story.

But if this happens, and it happens in business every fucking day, you get that unexpected bill. Just right before I got here, I was talking with a guy who created my golf cart, customized this golf cart, and the batteries are all fucked up and now he’s like, Yeah, it's about four grand to fix it. Dude, why? How am I just learning about this? Why didn't we install? I want to know, why didn't we just install it in the beginning? Why would we wait?

I'm thinking more about that. I'm not pissed off that he didn't do it. It's a battery, for God's sake. He's just delivering a message, right? I'm trying to understand how this can never happen to me again without calling this guy mean words and saying stupid stuff, because the truth is that emotion will kick up. It's about money, $4,000. “Jeez, og my god, blah, blah, blah, whatever” as opposed to like, Yo, cool, man, but how didn't I know that this existed? [32:14.1]

He's like, Actually, it just came out about a year ago for the new types of battery, blah, blah, blah.

Okay, cool. How could I be better at this? How could I be more proactive? What could I have done differently? Moving forward, what's the best procedure or protocol?

The old Mark says, Fuck you, you ripped me off. This is bullshit. You scammed me. Why didn't you just put it in?

That's stupid, and then I'm mad the rest of the day. Now I'm trying to make positive decisions in a negative state of mind. How do you think that goes? I have zero room for growth at that point because I'm so protected. I'm so guarded and my emotions are so ugly. It's not good. How am I making positive decisions in a negative state of mind? You're either controlling your emotions or your emotions are controlling you, and if you listen to the show this far, you know there's a choice to this process. [33:08.1]

If you're one of us partners in the e-comm side, chill the fuck out. You have an amazing team behind you, I promise. We want you to make money. Why? Because we make money when you make money. There are a lot of moving parts to business. A lot. There are a lot of things going on and we're in your best interest, I promise you that. I'm in the game forever. I'm not going anywhere.

The only way I'm out of the game is when I'm dead, and the truth is my game will continue on. Why? Because I have amazing people in my life and all my teams. We're teammates. It's not run by markets. It’s run by the team, and I'm talking all the way from the Sherpas to the sales guys to the deployers, everybody, assistant. We all care equally for your success if you're a partner. That's the culture we've built and cultivated. [34:07.6]

I'm not saying there aren’t yelling times and stressful times. We want to be focused on growing. We want to grow our dreams and our goals. We want to grow your goals and your dreams. But the truth is, I can't do it, I can't help people that have fucking immature emotions. I just can't do it, because you’ve got to work on that on your own, just like I had to.

Bad things happen daily. What are you doing about it? How are you handling it? What are the results from it? As this progresses, I promise you, guys and gals, the more you lean into this, what I'm talking about and I’ve never heard anybody talk about this, but the more you lean into this and really, really understand. I wish I knew this in fucking junior high, right? [35:00.8]

I remember if your girlfriend or boyfriend breaks up or whatever, I always remember, “Dude, I’m going to put sugar in their gas. I'm going to do this. I'm going to ruin. I'm going to take their stuff.” You just go to negativity. It doesn't solve anything. I get it, we're mad. We feel betrayed. We feel lied to. We feel stressed or whatever, maybe all the above, but that has to do with you, not them. They're doing what in their mind is best for them. I can't control them. I can control me. That's it. The only person I can control is me, no one else. Not my wife, not my kids, not my parents, nobody but me, and you're in the same boat.

We're at an amazing time to be alive and I'm very, not even concerned, but very real with myself about how the world has changed. It's real. The rich are going to get massively richer. I hope you're in that category. The poor are just going to be poor. It's part of the process. The truth is they want you to be poor. They want you to be poor. Why? That's how they control people. [36:04.0]

The middle class, straight up, you're fucked, for real. It's emotional. It sucks, but you can do something about it. If you don't have millions and millions of dollars available, accessed, building up millions of dollars of portfolios of businesses or real estate, or companies or whatever, you’d better get on the ball now, because you can't buy this time back.

Today is gone. This moment is gone soon. As you hear my voice, that minute and nanosecond is over. Time is decaying. It's against you, but I can’t control that. I can control my next move. It's going to be scary. It's going to be overwhelming. It's going to be fun. It's going to be frustrating. It's going to be profitable. It could be not so profitable. But I can tell you this. I'm going to keep my feet moving until I get what I want. What about you?

Your emotions are either controlling you or you're controlling them. I prefer the latter. I control my emotions. I get it. We're all emotional creatures, but your emotional intelligence has to elevate if you want to elevate your bank account. [37:14.3]

I want nothing more than for you to be stupid, filthy fucking rich, for real, because if you're listening to the show, I'm assuming you're a great giver or a great giver in the making, because I love giving. I love being a part of big stuff. I love helping people that can't help themselves, situations, etc., but I promise you, the only reason I'm here and where I'm going is because my emotional intelligence has risen.

Where have you learned this from? Who has taught you about emotional intelligence? By the way, if you're a part of the percentage that has amazing emotional intelligence, you know exactly this is the truth. You know what I’m talking about, that it’s one hundred percent truth. Without emotional intelligence, you'll never be where you could be, ever, because you're just too immature. [38:05.7]

We're better than that. We know it exists. We are aware now. Like I said, the question is, what are you going to do about it? And like I said, when shit hits the fan, be quiet for a second. Pause. Listen to your voice, your internal voice. This is you either freaking even more out or getting very crystal clear. Get your emotions intact. You'll get your money right, I promise. It's a very powerful conversation. I take this stuff very seriously. I want to be helpful and impactful for you. This is something we all need to get better at every single moment of our life. The higher the level of your emotional capacity and understanding, the better off you're going to be.

Since you’ve been here, if this show made an impact, please let me know. Hit me up on IG @MarkEvansDM. We're getting a lot of responses, by the way, about the $1,000-a-month mastermind group I'm thinking about doing. We've had many, many, many people reply. [39:06.2]

If you're not sure of that, I'm thinking about doing $1,000-a-month mastermind to make it more affordable for everyone that could come in and get going. I do have a 50k-a-year thing, but we're tapped out. It's been tapped out for a long time, but I'm sitting here thinking about doing it. I'm not a hundred percent sure I'm going to do it, but if it's something that interests you, hit me up on Instagram, say, “1k mastermind, count me in.” I’ll message you back and make sure I've got your information so we could put you on the list if we do decide to do it.

But I just appreciate you being here. I'm in the fight with you. I get it. It's not always easy. Very rarely is it easy, but it's worth it. Hope you have an absolutely amazing day. With that said, make today count. Peace.
