Master key on getting what you want in life: Holla

My daughter’s favorite song is “I Got The Keys” she loves it. She requests “the keys” when we get in the car on the way to school and we both love it. This is our unique bonding time. It’s my job to give my daughter keys on life. I feel like it’s my purpose to give keys to people who are looking to live out their life’s dream as it relates to starting that business they always wanted. So today I cooked up a post with the Major key that can get you closer to the things you may want.

What you want sounds a bit broad and it can be or what you want can be totally specific, the key still works. What is the key you ask? I’ve already answered that. Holla.

Holla repeatedly. Example:

But let’s get into it a lil bit. Holla means be loud and be clear about what you want. Want a refund, call your service provider and tell them what you want, when you want it and why you want it. Then ask for the supervisor because the first rep won’t give it to you and say it loud and clear again. And again. Have your tactics ready the whole I’ll cancel my service right now if I don’t get my refund. Holla.

Let’s be even more clear. Maybe you want to start your business. Maybe you want to sell a product or service to your tribe and you don’t know where to start. Welp. Holla. Tell your people you’ve got something for them. Be prepared, do a little research and craft your offer for your people. Give the people a solution to a problem in a way only you can give it. Give them something in your voice, with your style. Say it loud. Say it again. Spread your word and your ideas and offer to your people. Holla.

Repeat the process. Revise and then repeat again. H O L L A

Relaunch and tell people in a slightly different way maybe on a different platform about what you want or what you’re offering. Want that refund write an angry email. Revise. Relaunch. Tweet at the provider with what you’re upset about. In terms of a product or service launch via email, do a twitter poll, send out to media outlets. Shit. Have a house party but the fee is your product's cost. It’s your house, your world, your business it goes your way.

Tweak it. Holler. In this case the “er” at the end of the word is okay. You know what I mean? #staywoke once tweaked send it out again. Request. Reply. Receive.

Did you peep how many times this man said holla, the different ways, how he added it to sentences. He knows how to play this game.

How to get what you want. Holla!

Alright I’m outta here to follow my own advice and tell my people about a product I’m designing and see if they want it and how I can get it to them the best way.

Hint: it’s a course on how to get started on that idea or that big leap that’s been put on hold.
