Yes You Can Earn an Independent Living Doing Something You Care About
Are you struggling to stay motivated in your business? Are you doubting your chops as an entrepreneur? Do you need a reminder of why you got into the game in the first place?
You need a REBOOT, a reminder about what’s actually possible in modern small business.
It’s common to lose vision, motivation and perspective, and you’re in the right place to get the shot in the arm (or gut) you desperately need.
Because when we’re losing perspective, that’s when dangerous mistakes are made.
So here’s the thing – I’m going to ask you to do something.
I want you to listen to something. It’s a panel discussion featuring some experts who have spent the last 5 years helping small business entrepreneurs succeed online.
Your motivation problem likely won’t get fixed by “browsing” another internet article.
So, take it the next step and listen in… grab a coffee, put on your shoes and go for a walk as you listen and get your mind completely rebooted about what’s POSSIBLE in entrepreneurship today.
This episode is all about making it through those difficult times, staying motivated and reaching the highs that made you pick this path in the beginning.
During this episode we’ll be speaking from personal experience, looking at the tough points and the mountain tops and asking why some of us choose to stick it out. Entrepreneurship is definitely not for everyone but if you have come this far, there is a good chance you are in the right place, right?
We also talk about deciding your own destiny, the infinite possibilities of running your own business, and what separates the committed from the slackers.
So if you need a shot of confidence, a little bit of a pep talk or just want to stay on track, this is the episode for you!
