“We get too scattered as entrepreneurs. Find the one thing that works and build systems around it.” -Ed Rush

Things We Learned From This Episode

1. Build systems around the few things that work (05:59- 06:54)

As entrepreneurs, we tend to make business a lot more complicated than it really is. Essentially, business comes down to 2 to 4 things. Once you identify those elements, build systems around them. This simplifies your process and will make you much more effective.

2. Pay attention to the advice you receive (09:54- 11:06)

Be wary of a coach or advisor who gives you tons of ideas. There are three levels of advice you should be receiving: suggestions to try something new, recommendations, and confident, foolproof go-aheads. As soon as a coach gives you too many more ideas, proceed with caution.

3. See the opportunities in turmoil (34:27- 35:16)

All over the world, there is a growing unhappiness with leadership. Entrepreneurs can benefit from seeing the problems that need to be solved in these situations. As business owners, we have the ability to change the world for the better, as long as we’re seeking solutions.

The world we live in is currently going through a leadership crisis, in terms of politics, business and the home. Regardless of where this issue stems from, the reality is we need to see change. As entrepreneurs, we have the power to be at the forefront of that change. The way forward is uncomplicated. Let’s go back to the basics and cancel out the noise.
