EXCLUSIVE: World Cup Star Martin Braithwaite To Sign 4-Year Contract With Madrid Team

Published

on

After weeks of speculation, Danish international Martin Braithwaite will sign with Spanish La Liga side Leganes, WealthLAB has learned.

According to sources, Braithwaite—who was signed to English Championship side Middlesbrough—will move to Leganes immediately on a four-year contract that could prove lucrative for Braithwaite.

According to ex-Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis, Braithwaite pocketed in the neighborhood of €3M per year (£50K per week), making him one of the highest paid Championship players ever.

In addition, Braithwaite’s team secured a €18M buy-out clause for the striker, an insane low for a World Cup starter on a traditional FIFA Top 10 national team.

“Leganes went really far to sign him,” a club source told WealthLAB. “They’re very excited to have him on the team.”

Braithwaite—a starter for Denmark’s World Cup squad last year that nearly knocked off Croatia, the eventual silver medalists—had a successful six-month stint in Madrid with Leganes, scoring a number of crucial goals against top sides Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla.

In addition to his football, the Dane is a budding entrepreneur and investor as well. The source said the club will make an official announcement by the end of the week.

UPDATE 11:53 p.m., July 24, 2019: Leganes just announced the signing, which was completed late July 24.

“I’m excited for this new adventure,” Braithwaite told WealthLAB exclusively. “I appreciate all the people in Middlesbrough, the staff, the people and especially the new coaching staff. I wish them all the best.

“Now I’m ready to pursue even greater goals. I look forward to helping this team become a Top 10 squad for years to come.”

Here’s How Apple’s CEO Tim Cook Starts His Day (And What He Does Might Surprise You)

Published

on

Apple has became a trillion-dollar company. Despite the tech giant’s great numbers, how does its CEO Tim Cook actually start his day?

In a recent Axios interview, Cook revealed he starts each day just before 4 a.m. with a strict morning routine.

What that consists of might surprise you: He reads user comments about Apple products.

“I like to take the first hour and go through user comments and things like this that sort of focus on the external people that are so important to us,” Cook says.

In other words, he reads comments from fans, trolls and everything in between.

You’d think the CEO never bothers to read stuff like that; that he’d have an assistant ready to give him the rundown.

“And then I go to the gym and work out for an hour because it keeps my stress at bay.”

Workouts can be super critical. Billionaires and other successful entrepreneurs cite fitness as a key component to their success (and overall sanity).

“I seriously doubt that I would have been as successful in my career (and happy in my personal life),” Branson once wrote in a blog post. “If I hadn’t always placed importance on my health and fitness.”

Published

on

Entrepreneur and bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk—aka Gary Vee!— is one of the biggest business on social media today.

His IG currently boasts 4M followers while his YouTube has near 1.6M subscribers.

The CEO of Vayner Media, Gary uses (and absolutely loves) social media to propel the growth of his business, now valued at a whopping $125 million, which even includes a media franchise.

(And no, WealthLAB’s not for sale, G.)

Obviously, if you’re someone just starting out in business, you’re looking for ways to get your business out there. How to get more followers.

For 90%+, you pick a couple of platforms, you post. More often than not, you end up with dwindling traffic, or no shares or comments.

So how do you get around that?

According to Gary Vee, you can get more followers and more engagement through a $1.80 strategy. (Well, sorta.)

Here’s how you do it.

Make a list of every hashtag that fit the work your business does. Apart from this, check out the other tags people use when generating content similar to yours.

With this in hand, check out any hashtag for the top posts surrounding that description—and then share your two cents about it as a comment.

If you were to do this ten times over, your work would equal $0.02*9 posts*the hashtags= $1.80. (Yeah, kinda corny, but you get the logic.)

Check it out here, in his own words.

Over time, this can help you snag followers, and you will continuously learn about what matters to many of your followers.

Published

Engaging the right mentality. Whether it’s fitness, business or just self-improvement, setting your personal goals is just like setting any other major goals in life:

You need to be in the right state of mind in order to develop the discipline for progress. 

Below are some mental exercise questions to help you gauge where you are mentally. Ask yourself the following questions.

Q1: Why is it important to be honest with myself?

Being honest with myself not only helps me identify a problem but more importantly, identify a solution. 

By being honest with myself, not only do I give myself an opportunity to understand how I confront my problems, but I also give myself room to understand my priorities and goals.

Q2: What contributed to my current state of health?

Not exercising consistently, eating out on a daily basis, nurturing destructive habits with my current habits and routines. In other words, set a plan to address it—and then do.

Q3: How can I achieve a better state of health?

Follow a workout plan, develop the habit of consistent exercise, hiring a personal trainer who can guide me towards my goals. Create a list of healthy foods to eat, reach out to a friend who has similar goals and work together.

Accountability is everything.

Q4: What has been my biggest setback from reaching my goals?

Procrastination, not having a clear set of goals, and bad habits. It’s really that simple.

Q5: Why have I not applied these solutions yet?

Example Answer: “I’m not sure where to start, I haven’t taken the time to think about these things.”

Q6: Is it possible to change any of the negative answers I listed?
