Episode 386 – How To Become A True Entrepreneur And Owning It?

What is the difference between an Entrepreneur and a Wantrepreneur? Entrepreneurs own it!

What is “it”? It’s the difference between making a legacy and making a living.

People who work in corporations and in network marketing can have the entrepreneurial spirit, but they lack true ownership of their destiny and the business that you are building. Yes, stock options and downstreams have their value, but you don’t own it… it’s a rental game that you can’t totally control.

Entrepreneurs have multiple traits:

Inventive
Create Business Opportunities
Measure Success In Growth
Self Motivated
Humble
Leadership
In this episode, we will explore what separates an Entrepreneur and a Wantrepreneur. Now I understand that owning it is not for everybody, but if that sounds like you, then you want to listen to this episode!

Episode 354 – The Lost Art Of Integrity… Is Character More Important Today?

I was having a coffee with my mentor Al, when this question came up. “Is integrity dead? Is character more important today than ever before?” In this world of social media, fake news, a

nd sales pitches coming harder and faster than ever before in history… the answer is “Yes… But!”

I have been on a track of ‘Thought Leadership’ and using tools to get your messages found and acted upon. What happens when your messages and your deliverables are not aligned?

That’s what integrity is. You are who you are in your car… or online!
