Essential Habits and Motivation for Entrepreneurs (an Interview with Leo Babauta)

Written by Leo Babauta

Click play on the video above. Staying motivated and changing ineffective habits are both essential skills for anyone working to become self-employed.

When you don’t have a boss or team to keep you on track, being able to change your behavior yourself can literally equal the difference between success and failure.

Leo Babauta of the massively popular Zen Habits blog knows a thing or two about motivation and habits, especially as they apply to entrepreneurs. Leo just finished a new book about habits and launched it via Kickstarter. He has also interviewed dozens of entrepreneurs and successful people about habits and created a special series just on Habits of Entrepreneurs.

I sat down with Leo to ask him what he’s learned about habits and motivation for entrepreneurs. He shared tons of simple strategies and stories about how to change yourself in this information-packed interview. Click play on the video above to watch the full interview.

If you’d like to support Leo’s book launch, he has several options on Kickstarter, including digital and physical copies of the book, plus lots of other goodies. Check out the Zen Habits book and Kickstarter campaign here »
