    To Passion or Not - Need Advice

    I’ve read the first two books and am midway through the Great Rat Race Escape. I know the previous books touched on the bad idea is it to follow ones “passion” but I was already into it by the time I was introduced to the books. My website (which is my passion) does provide value via content...

    Skills over passion?

    MINDSET 
    I've heard this advice at least a million times "FOLLOW YOUR PASSION" . While initially motivating, I found it highly deceiving and considered it as a diversion as to what I should actually be doing. It might hold it's own fan following, but following your passion is not always rewarding...

    I'm in the biggest race of my life against time and myself

    INTRO 
    I feel like I've been asleep my whole life and just recently woke up to realise I'm in the biggest race of my life against time. I never really had control of my life. It felt just like watching your life unfold right in front you and not having the power or ability to influence most of the...

    Not passionate about a specific industrie, but passionate about making an Impact.

    MINDSET 
    I am at the idea-finding-stage. Since reading the book Unscripted, I see more and more opportunities. Some I get more excited about, others less. I found that the bigger the impact of those ideas, the more they would excite me and the more I become passionate about them. But also, the more...

    Argument for Doing A Passion-Based Business?

    HOT! MINDSET 
    I know the general view on this forum is to not choose passion because passion does not mean having a market need. In a sense, choosing a passion based business is selfish. But I have been thinking a lot about this and actually think passion is 100% necessary. Everyone knows that when you...

    Do you care passionately about your employees?

    PEOPLE 
    Philosophical Convo. You have been warned. Have you ever felt like you’re on the verge of having a really important aha moment in a conversation and then the person you’re talking to has to go? This just happened to me. I’m starting to realize that although I would like to learn a great deal...

    Crisis: Necessary to enjoy building your business?

    MINDSET 
    Quick Background (Feel Free to Skip) I am kind of in a rut. I have failed in business numerous times mainly due to underestimating how much money it costs to actually build a real ecommerce brand. So I abandoned that and will only do ecommerce once I have mild success in a low monetary capital...

    To go big, or to just get by for now?

    So a question to you all... For those that have "made it," was your first successful venture something you created just to get by - just to quit your day job? Or was it something that you started that you wanted to create a legacy? The thing that your life would be remembered for. For those...

    Why am I on this earth?

    MINDSET

    Bar Rescue: Elements of Failure

    EXECUTION 
    One of the few programs I watch pretty religiously is BAR RESCUE. While I understand the drama is fake and manufactured, what aren't are the failures and the remodeling / rebranding that occurs. This is why I watch it because it really has some great lessons for business. Yes, even in bars...
