$26k a year to $26k a day was not an overnight step. It takes years of hard work, with the right headspace, and a clear goal in mind. Even if that goal is just one word. Improve. Hunter Ballew is a small-town guy who bettered his own life and the life of people around him through hard work and dedication, this article explains the 3 major steps in his life he towards growing his legacy to the scale it is today.

Serve your country:

Serving your country does not necessarily just mean joining the armed forces (Marine Corps), it could mean becoming an EMT or a firefighter too. Hunter did all of these things. Right out of high school he joined the armed forces, and then went on to become a full-time firefighter and EMT up until 2015. He knew the value of being a good neighbor, a pillar of the community, and a supportive person overall. He took jobs that allowed him to serve not just the immediate community but the country, even the world, as a whole. Learn to help others.

Build your brand:

In 2015 he left his full-time job and threw himself into his entrepreneurship. He began his own roofing company and in no time at all with hard work and determination managed to grow it into a multiple 7 figure enterprise. He managed to achieve this so quickly by learning how to correctly build a brand. What brand success looked like and the steps he needed to take to get himself, and his business, there. He learned to help himself.

Expand your reach:

Hunter didn’t just stop at his roofing company, he extended his reach as far as he could. To as many people as he could. He now runs a men’s group called the BOLD brotherhood. This brotherhood is in place to help as many other men as he can to be their best selves. This is done through everything from public live events and private workshops. Hunter takes time to personally be involved with as many people as possible, so he can provide as much direct help as possible. He has gone back to helping people. He could do this because he learned how to help people in the first place. Rescuing someone from a fire and rescuing them from a failing business is not the exact same thing, but it is transferable knowledge.

Additionally, he is launching his own fitness app in 2020. He can do this because he learned to help himself, now he can use that knowledge to help even more people. And the cycle of positivity continues.

One more word:

By examining the steps Hunter Ballew took in his own life and seeing how they could apply to your own, hopefully, you will gain an idea of the kind of work and time it takes to build success. Success does not happen overnight, it takes time to grow that $26k. If you take on board the ideas this article puts forward and are committed to your goal, to always be improving, you will find success along the way.
