PRACTICAL SERIES: Millionaire In 90 days: How To Sell Your Brain The Right Way In This Changing Economy

Topic 2: You An Expert? Ha ha!

………………

You walk into the room full of professors and esteemed geniuses with different degrees and awards…

Some have white grains on their head with big specs…

They have their shirt in suspender trousers with their white socks showing in their boot-like shoes.

As you walk in, your heart beats faster…

Lub-dubb… Lub-dubb…

You’re about 6 metres to where they are all seated, then suddenly you hear a voice interrupting the silent voice echoing in your mind…

The voice brings to your reality…

“Who Are You To Sell Your Brain?”

You wait and pause for a moment…

You are about to say something, but you want to be sure you’d say the right thing…

Your brain quickly takes you to the room of your achievements and qualifications…

It shows you your degree and how relevant they are in relation to those seated before you…

It shows you why you’re not worthy to have that title…

And then, suddenly you come back to reality and mutter the following words….

“Oh, I Am Sorry. I Must Be In The Wrong Room. I Am Not Worthy Of Selling My Brain, So I’m Not Worthy Of Answering Your Question”

And boo!

You run…

You hate it whenever such thought comes to you on why it’s necessary to sell your brain the right way. You prefer playing it safe… like one of these lecturers.

John.

John is a very smart lecturer in a Nigerian university (name withheld for some reasons)…

He graduated with first class hons and was retained in the school to be a lecturer as one of the best graduating student.

Sadly, his long time rival since high school – Peter – also bagged the same awards and degree.

In fact, he also was retained as a lecturer.

John wanted to be the best lecturer around. He spends more than he usual-assigned hours in the class to wow the student of his stuff. He tells them only academically-related stories to help them do well in exams…

He comes early to school and go towards the evening… Because of this, many students and probably you, will doubt that John scheduled teaching hours is just from 1pm to 3 pm.

But he comes around as early as 8am, goes to the office, “percuss” (this is a slang we use to say when you want to probe for answers) several students on academic related subjects. And…

For some reasons, irrespective of what John did, he earned about the same salary as Peter. But…

In the next 2 years, luck smiled on him, maybe the Vice Chancellor saw how zealous he was to helping student achieve academic excellence, so he got a 10% increase in salary.

Boy! He was top of the world. He comes 7am after this increase and stayed later than 6pm…

Well, 5 years later…

The unexpected happened.

Peter despite not doing all what John did bought a Mecedes Benz and a new home.

Woo!

How come?

I thought they bought received the same salary at some point?

Well, well…

This got John thinking because he was obviously working harder than Peter, and probably earning more salary than Peter in that school…

So what is the trick?

Turns out, Peter was selling his brain the right way.

He didn’t have to be everywhere literally like John.

Since, he was also academically sound, he rather created a product that could fetch him money even while he was asleep.

He created a book and had several students across different universities get it… And was it.

You see, you probably may be thinking, that looks cool, but I don’t have a professional degree yet…

Well, well…

If you had told me this some 50 years ago, I could have let you go scot-free…

But today, I wouldn’t. Not even if you get a coldstone (doorh)

You see, you don’t have to be a PRO…

You don’t have to have hundreds of certificates or receive hundreds of awards…

You don’t have to have a relevant degree…

In fact, not having a single degree is not a discriminatory factor. You may not even need it.

You don’t have to be born with some genius brain to sell your brain. All you ever need is simple…

A Willing Heart And An Observing Eyes.

How do I mean a willing heart?

A heart ready to help people reach XYZ goals.

An observing eyes to note problems facing people and thinking backwards on how your skills, talents or natural dispositions have helped similar persons in past to achieve X goals.

You see, I have seen a lady sell an online course where she teaches people how to sew, crazy yeah?

I have seen an online driving masterclass, course and book.

I have seen an DIY book.

It could be anything.

Just anything.

But there are two things you should never forget when it comes to selling your brain.

The problem

The market

These two can never be overruled or belittled.

Know the problem facing the people (the market) and connect it to the what you can do.

Now note. You don’t necessarily have to have whatever social proof in terms of degrees or certificates to back this up. I will show you in subsequent letters exactly what to do when you have ZERO social proof.

All you need to do is to realize that whatever solution you’ve got, that it can help that average Joe seated in the street or your neighbour get X solution.

Fact: You don’t need to have be IETLS professional to help fellow students pass the exams.

Your experience could come from your repeated failures in IETLS and eventually you got the trick.

That’s enough to helping someone who needs to pass the exam.

Note again: That you don’t validation from lecturers, or those professors that scare you the other time.

Interestingly, they aren’t just “professors”, they are gate-keepers. They show you directly and indirectly why you aren’t good.

Listen to me: you aren’t writing a novel to get Wole Soyinka to read it.

You’re writing a novel that some students or teenagers or adults with similar interest or desires  to read and enjoy.

In order words, FOCUS ON YOUR MARKET – that person who needs your little expertise to move further.

That’s your market…. You aren’t cocacola.

That said, now bow your head and let me annoint you an EXPERT.

I, Ortega, the Son of Ogomigo, annoint you today, an EXPERT. Go and solve the world’s problem!

Ha ha!

That looks fun. But don’t take it for granted. I just annointed you an expert, so let us talk tomorrow.

You can start celebrating in your new look as an expert because tomorrow we’ve got a lot to discuss.

Peace.
