How to make £2,000, £10,000 or £20,000 quickly in your business with John Williams #28

How to make £2,000, £10,000 or £20,000 quickly in your business with John Williams

This episode is about how to make some cash quickly. Right now on some of my programmes I've invited people in to something called the 2k Challenge.

I'm challenging those who haven't made any money from their new business yet, because they are still in the process of setting it up, to make their first £2000/$2000/$2000aud or whatever it might be.

Some really interesting things have come out of this that I think are worth sharing with you. We imagine that making those first couple of thousand pounds is going to be terribly complicated and that we need to have a lot of things in place.

In actual fact, if you just want to generate some cash quickly it's better to flip things on their head......

I hope you enjoy the episode - let me know your takeaways in the comments below.
