Things We Learned From This Episode
- Get involved in the local community (03:40:04-40)
Get involved in mentorship in your local area. You won’t know where you can help until you start a conversation about it. Many of us miss out on opportunities to get connected locally because we assume our help is not needed.
- Create a legacy that will make your children proud of you (15:08-16-08)
Entrepreneurship isn’t just about making more money and having more free time. It’s also about building a legacy your children will be proud of. Make sure your work focuses on bringing solutions to people’s problems and you’ll leave this world better than how you found it.
- Make time for the things that truly matter (16:50- 17:27)
Entrepreneurship doesn’t always equal freedom, especially at the beginning of your journey when you’re struggling to make a name for yourself. Throughout the process, make sure you don’t lose sight of the things that matter the most. Be there for your children when they need you. They won’t remember how much money you made, but they will remember the time and experiences you gave them.
Building a business can be about more than just you and your time. By finding solutions to common problems and educating others, you can make world a better place. When business owners get involved in the local community and with non-profit organizations, they build a positive reputation and lift others up in the process.
