Con- up blah blah blah. It's the stuff. That leonard on the tony robbins podcast But you didn't start out being a business builder and entrepreneur. You start out with something that might in fact seemed like the polar opposite of the pat success. Which was your lover. Phil and you went to film school. How did your family feel about you tripping the light brand tacit rather get yourself a good steady job I think that you know my mom lived in constant and still does quite. Frankly live in a constant state of panic that i was going to do nothing with my life that i would Be unhappy in some way and so she worried but very quietly so when i was a kid she was very encouraging. Wanted me to go chase my dreams and so i didn't grow up with that like pressure from my parents or anything. They wanted to see me happy. I was very passionate about film making. They could see my excitement. They wanted to see me. Pursue it So they were very encouraging about that. My dad is. I got towards graduation. Film school he sent me starting at month. Six or five hundred member exactly my senior year. It was five more months four months three more months one month at two when he was not going to be helping me financial anymore so literally the day. I graduated I had no more assistance from my family so that was actually great so from that perspective. He didn't have too many concerns Because he just believed. I would somehow figure it out. So that long story but took me through my remedial jobs phase where you know barely making ends meet but i made some I made some what ended up being quite smart decisions around managed apartment complexes and things like that really cheap rent as why was while you were in films who know right after i graduated. Put again as about weirdness right like all you went to film school you went to film school. I assuming you want to make films and managing apartments. It's a weird mix. I mean we know people go into the arts often wait tables. You managed apartments. That must've been that entrepreneurial spirit in you as well even doing that film time. it's interesting. there really wasn't and i. I am by nature. I am the world's worst entrepreneur. I don't have any real entrepreneurial Instincts in me so even the apartment managing thing was was totally an accident. It was me capitalizing. An opportunity that presented itself and that i will say i've been good in my life about winning opportunity presents itself. I take that opportunity But if that one hadn't fallen in my lap than that it's terrifying to think what the outcome would have been. So when i went to film school i thought that i would. I was showing real promise zone school. And i thought that i had natural talent for it and that shows you my mindset. I was very focused on what what comes naturally to me and so i thought it maitlis gifted filmmaker and so the first half of them school. I did very very well. And then i got selected as one of the four people to direct senior thesis film. Which is a big deal and so when it happened was like oh my god. I'm like bud shows. I'm literally one of four people chosen to direct this film. And i'm gonna make this. It's going to be amazing. i'm gonna go out. I'm gonna get a three picture. Deal from hollywood off the back of how good this film is going to be. And and my life will be. That's literally what i was thinking. And i showed up on the first day of domain with virtually no preparation and to give i wrote the script like to the minute that it was due so a couple of hours before. I jot something down which only feeds ending it gets elected which only feeds into. I'm just naturally good at this. So i roll up onset completely unprepared and i fail miserably very publicly incredibly embarrassingly and then that shakes my whole world and makes me realized that i am. I am not a talented filmmaker like that was the hard realization that i had phase at that moment.

It's important for shoppers to buy from u._s. Businesses even when they're shopping online. I mean well which you know that. She talked about this on your show as well. I i mean there. There are hundreds of thousands of small businesses in georgia. <hes> you know these are businesses that that provide many jobs to the state and nationally really you know small businesses provide more than half of the jobs. We know that small businesses are a huge part of the u._s. Economy and there are a lot of people out there that want to support small businesses and their government programs that do that. Some companies are doing that as well and <hes> as you mentioned in your introduction i mean amazon stepped up this week as well and we're launching <hes> something called storefronts and you know what the whole backstory to store phones riches that you know amazon i if you buy something from amazon it's more likely that it's coming from a small merchant half of the products that sold on the site comes from a small business or merchant and if there's more than a million small small businesses in the u._s. alone that are selling their products on amazon so amazon sort of said. You know what let's bring some of these guys together. They're starting offer offer twenty thousand small businesses selling more than a million products under storefronts and that way you and i or anybody else that wants to you know make make sure that when we're buying something the same stuff for buying usual but we wanna make sure it's going to a u._s. Based small business we can do that from their storefront site assistant amazing concept tom so and so these are digital storefronts bricks and mortar <hes> right yep absolutely absolutely correct and you know what you you do. Bring up a really good point rich. I mean yes this digital storefronts as these are e commerce site. This is amazon as an online company company right and you have to tell you for your for your listeners as well that are in <hes> you know the area retail merchants and you're selling stuff on main street. I mean i'm i'm telling when you and i'm i'm warning you that you know the the country's largest retailers and the smartest business owners i mean are learning to expand their channels and you know you. You're growing your business now. Just by relying on foot traffic is <hes> is is a very challenging thing to do and what you need to be doing. Is you do need to be selling. Let me your products online and that way. If you sign up amazon merchant you're you're making your products available to millions of prospective customers and if you get don imus on storefronts site then you're being highlighted even more as a small business and i that has that kind of a very positive impact on your business so <hes> you know long answer your question but yes. This is online but you know if you're a merchant. You really do need to be online today. I mean it's much like a you know broadcasting al it's been disrupted in revolutionized <hes> and you have to jump on board with that right so <hes> it's great to be have listeners down and around the corner and in your neighborhood but <hes> with the technologies that we have broadcasters we can reach now <hes> audiences on all fifty states and around the world and so we take you know so it's much like taking that product at retail l. store not just keeping it during business hours but <hes> opening those doors twenty four seven to all fifty states and in our case we syndicate our our platform. I'm across thirty. Some odd syndicated networks you at this day and age. You really need to leverage not just the technology but repurpose whether it's in our case broadcasting or you're in case of retail products so that i agree i agree and you know what by the way it's not an easy thing to do. Either i mean it's not only just flip a switch. I mean becoming an amazon merchant for gamble. You gotta you gotta go through some of the requirements and and you have to be really good with customer service and you have to respond to your customers and you have to be ready to fulfill products as well from the potential customers around the world so <hes>. It's not an easy thing to do but it's absolutely worthwhile to talk to us about. <hes> this store like presence like the one on amazon is launching a helping small businesses compete online so you're on storefronts there is offering some sort of unique advantages for the small business owners listing where they can be part of curated collections so if they do something like they sell pet supplies or stuff related to holidays in the collections will feature them. Amazon is featuring a storefront of the week as well so you can be featured there. It's great and plus. They're doing some deep dives with their where you can meet the business owner and you more four profiles on the business owners so that's way more attention than you'd be getting. If you're on the main amazon site right yeah so it's different than just being a vendor or supplier on their you're actually putting your storefront in all fifty states and but see mentioned you kind of talked to others so any other these these fun features that trump from shoppers perspective might <hes> you know went on sure i mean what happens for the shoppers is that amazon is providing providing the shoppers the ability to connect with with these small business owners. They have the convenience of amazon but now they've got the choice of buying from small businesses though the storefront refund. They know that their money is being spent here in the u._s.

To be ranked? Yeah. So for example, like NPR there's like an underground not not underground like in the political world with corrupt but underground where you have to go to the contributors and not the general admission like ideas that Forbes contributors that ink, and for example, those I sent fishes before and they never get opened. Like, I check my Email. So it's just like a general filter. These publications get millions of pages each month, tons of people wanna become writers tons of people want to get press.

"So that was like a really scary moment in my life. That is a scary moment. I mean, fire nation, the the reality is when you're pushing the envelope and you're being aggressive when you're testing new things and you're trying stuff, you gonna step on someone's toes. You're gonna make mistakes. You're going to cross the line if you times in Monday even know it. And oftentimes you won't until you know it's thrown in your face. You have crossed the line and just recognize it's part of the match ration- process of being an entrepreneur. So what do you want to make sure our listeners get from that story? You have to own up here mistakes, right? So Brian that happened, they cut me. They gave me a slack like pretty much cut me some slack because one, probably my age and two, I was just naive to the. Type thing, but if it was anybody else right, they would have gotten like they would have gone slaughtered by publications. So I got really lucky that they gave me that chance, but not everybody not everybody might have leisure. So really, really be careful and own ups here mistakes because that's just shows like that you want, you acknowledge you did wrong, right, and try to take the steps to make it better. And that's exactly what I did that afterwards too. I apologize all the contributors I, I lost a lot of friends. I lost a lot of relationships and I had to build the business backup. What is one of the greatest ideas you've had today is an entrepreneur, like what's that a Hamam that you had walked through that story and then tell us how you turned it into success? That's a great question. So the moment for me was when I was starting in publicity, so the space is so incredibly unsaturated right at the time. Like right now I'm in the space, and I know about four to five people that do PR that are in that are building a personal brand out of it. Right. So the moment for me. Was every time you get into a certain it, you're like a certain industry. If you're one of the first people to do it, you get a large piece of the pie. Right? So right now I'm, I'm one of the youngest, you know, to do PR into to do this type of stuff. Like, obviously there's a ton of agencies out there, but essentially the the moment for me was like, I need. I need to go in and I need to go and fast before it becomes saturated. Right? So the game plan for me was like, I need to work with every single. The reason my businesses called influence oppress is because I wanna main focus on working with every single influence or possible because just like off the rub off affect as well. Like if I, if I'm associated with Kevin Harrington or somebody big like that, like almost automatically you get that Rowbotham fact of their audience. Right? So I knew that because the space is unsaturated if I can get the majority of the market like be seen with all these influencers that I can get become really, really big and essentially like the Neil Patel. My industry and I made a decision long time ago, like Neil Patel. One of my I like I people that I ever found out about all marketing and I made a decision like whenever I, if I ever go into like some part of online marketing, I wanna be the Neil Patel of my industry. So this is this is a way to go for it from me so fire nation, if you're going to shoot for the moon and you miss what you still in amongst the stars. So who do you want to be? Like, who's that person that you would like to be like? Like, who do you admire who's currently where you would love to end up in a couple months? A couple of years. Look up to that person and try to fall under a footsteps make things happen. We're all standing on the shoulders of giants. Of course, be you this whole time be unique individual, but we all learn from everybody around us, especially those who have come before succeeded. What's your biggest takeaway from that Hamam Ulysses, the biggest takeaway for me was one. I didn't know that going into publicity. I was gonna love it so much, but it just it aligns with so much of what I do. So I. The thing that I want the listeners to take away is like, actually I'm not. I'm not entirely sure because I didn't like, for example, I didn't know it was going to go into a publicity and but when I did, I just fell in love with it like I get work with, you know, like right now on your podcast look up to you, like I get a witness, so many influencers that and people that I looked up to when first starting out, right. All on marketing space. Like I'm a geek when it comes to like on marketing and stuff. So just being on his podcast and working with these major influencers, like if they're kind of like in a way like a fan of like the business and stuff like that. So yeah, I don't know. I don't know John what a great way to be the would agree way to work with people that you Meyer that you look up to. You get excited about working with. I mean, how opposite is that fire nation for most people in the world that you know go to work senator cubicle next to somebody they don't even know or care about or even like, I mean, it's just sad. And when you get to choose to work with people that you look up to the Meyer, the joy working with you could fired up by. That's being an entrepreneur is all about speaking of which what are you most fired up about today? US's. Yeah, great question. So recently I've been investing a lot in mentors, so like sterling Griffin which he's on your, he's already been on your show, show Scott old for it and stuff like that. So and the thing that most fired up about is like in the past six months, I've seen so much growth just by learning and implementing what my mo- my mentors have taught me that I just it's I'm seeing my vision on full right. And to me, that's so crazy. Because at first you know, you just kind of have this vision of what you would like to happen. But once you kind of see it unfold, it's so cool. Like I started out with a team of two and now have a team of nine like a hired, a CEO of a million dollar company, right? That's where Russell Brunson and out sharpen and all that type of stuff. So it's, it's it's so exciting to see growth when you when you learning from a mentor. Somebody who's done it before somebody who can guide you in the right steps. And to me like, that's the biggest thing that I'm excited about. Like in August, for example, we hit one hundred thirteen in revenue, right? So like in this year this year, if everything goes right, which obviously not everything's gonna go, right? Like we should have a million dollar business by the end of the end of two thousand eighteen. Right. So that's exciting for me like it's so it's so ethics. So that's what I'm gonna fired up about fire nation.

"Boom, shake the room, fire nation, jail here and welcomed episode. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety three of E O fire out entrepreneurs on fire seven days a week, and if you're ready to measure productivity, discipline focus, we'll do one hundred days and do it with the mastery journal dot com. Now, let's chat with today's featured guest. Ulysses owes SUNA. Ulysses are you prepared to ignite? I am so ready. John. Do this UC's is the founder of influence or press a PR firm. They gets influencers on major publications like Forbes, Inc, entrepreneur, and others you lease. He's take a minute film, some gaps from that intro and give us a little glimpse your personal life. Yes. So pretty much you hit it right on the nail. I help share their story on massive publications. There's so many entrepreneurs and influencers doing such big things, but yet they don't know how to get the word out. So my job. It's to extract their story or their project or whatever it is that working on and share that out with the world, whether it's national TV publications or podcasts. So and as sort of like my personal story, dude, Emma hermit. It's it's sad, but it's like I love just being at home working reading. I hardly ever go out. And if I do go out, it's like go watch a movie or something so, but most of the time, like twenty four, seven. I'm in my room stuck in like this. It's not a cubicle, but yeah, just my room pretty much just working. Your area of expertise is PR, NPR influence, etc. Was something that we don't know about that influence repressing general. That's frankly, we should a lot of entrepreneurs. They're they're doing a lot of stuff. They're doing a lot of great stuff too. But the thing that they get caught up with is like a lot of them think that journalists over the story like they come with the with the perception like because I'm so great like I deserve to be written about right. And that's probably one of the worst way actually go about it because journalists don't anything right. They don't thing. It's if anything, if a writers writing about you, it's actually a favor for you. Right? So. If you're coming in with the perception of, yes, I deserve a story and you're coming in with that type of attitude. You're gonna find it really quick that you're not gonna get massive publicity, right? So you, you're gonna find out that nobody's gonna want to interview. And then in turn like you just won't be able to get your story out, what do you really wanna give fire nation as maybe a challenge is the call to action to maybe take a step forward in this direction. First things first be a human being. Understand that the right on the other end has to do work for you when they're interviewing you. Right? So if you look at it from that perspective, you have to remember they have to take the time out of their day to interview. They have to write the piece. They have to look for data. They have to do all the research. Right? So my biggest advice on that end is beach human being and focused and realize that the the easier you make it on the writer to to interview or whoever it is that everyone knew the more likely, the higher the chance you'll get to actually get that feature or whatever it is. You're being interviewed for to actually go live. The hard part is not getting the interviewer to say, yes. The hard part is actually getting them to publish the peace because a lot of people can say, yes, but when actually comes down to it. In a week or two life happens and they can get it can be stressful. They can have something else come up and they just won't publish the piece. So follow up human being and understand that they have a process that they go through every time they re somebody Ulysses. Let's talk about your worst entrepreneurial moment to date. I mean, you've had a lot of ups and some downs doesn't want to talk about now is the worst of the worst takes their? Yes. So this was really, really bad back when I was starting. I think last October. So last year. So a little backstory. I went to college for one year, but I never took a class on journalism or PR or anything like that. I kinda just I kinda got started in a really weird way and when I did, I did not know the rules appear. So there are rules when it comes to getting publicity, right? So back in October, I was I was being investigated by these major publication. So I was being investigated by staff of Forbes by staff of like ink by staff of entrepreneur. And it was a really scary time for me, and I didn't know why I didn't know why until later. So essentially, what they did is they were contacting my clients and and pretty much doing an investigation, and then a reporter for CNBC contacted me and she was she was like telling me that she would running the story and pretty much running the story. She told me later that this is on the record and that she wanted to give me a chance to to pretty much like come forward and confess on like what I've been doing. And essentially what I've been doing is you're the rules essentially. One you cannot barter with contributors to you cannot pay contributors or writers at these locations and three. You can't even give them gifts, right? So I was doing all three. So I like 'cause I was a writer for for a couple of publication sue for like entrepreneur success in upo and all that stuff. So I was like, yeah, you know, if you help my client on your on your on your column, like I totally help you out, right. I can read about you here or something like that. And then others would ask for payment and then others would offer payment and stuff like that. So like that the reason why that's so bad is because it's like media manipulation way. It now turns into like you have biases. There's a reason why they're actually publishing the story now because they want to, but because you know, you're, you're getting something in return and writers are not supposed to get anything return. So now I had like restructure my entire business and I and I was scared that that they were gonna write bad press about me. And I was just like, keep in mind. I was like nineteen at the time. So, and this is my first time, doing publicity. Ever. So it was just like a really scary time for me because I didn't want that right. Like I was in it for long term, I didn't want to. I wasn't in it just to make a quick buck and leave. Mike. I made a decision that like when I'm going to do PR like I want to become one of the best that it ever. So
