Who says you can’t have fun in business? Ever want to do that dark trailer voice? Check out my book trailer…
If you’re the kind of person who wants to leave the corporate environment and finally live your life on your terms… this book will create your road map to freedom! I recognize that this is a rather bold claim, but I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it. I think there are two kinds of people in the world: Employees dedicate their lives to someone else’s vision, and entrepreneurs to their own.
If you feel like you’re floating through life with a 9-5, but you want to have a bigger impact, more freedom, and real control over your destiny, then you need to create your own path. If you feel like you aren’t sure how you ended up where you are, and you wish you had made some different choices in the past, it’s not your fault. Our education system is designed to train good little employees, soldiers, consumers… zombies. And the corporate environment is largely perpetuating a toxic environment where people are rewarded for being politicians instead of visionaries and executors.
Believe me, I feel your pain. For over a decade, I felt like a round peg jammed into a square hole. From “higher” education to my CPA license to one of the Big 4 accounting firms and three other corporations, I always felt like there was something more out there. The whole time I was in that world, I studied small business, learned as much as I could about entrepreneurship, and started a couple businesses as well.
When I finally made the full-time leap from employee to entrepreneur, I felt free. But being mismatched for so long gave me a unique skill set that I’m passionate about: I have a wealth of knowledge and experience around the devilish details that stop a lot of people from becoming entrepreneurs. So I leverage that to educate people on that knowledge foundation and teach them how to create an online business in an area that they’re already an expert in.
If you want to create what I call a “knowledge business,” the last ingredient is inspiration. Inspiration drives passion and curiosity. When you’re passionate, you summon courage instead of running away when the going gets tough. When you’re curious, you put in the hours of hard work necessary for any successful venture. When you’re inspired, you recognize that you have an impact on something larger than yourself, so you eagerly play your role. I’m on a crusade to find inspired people. Are you one?
