How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
Started with sheep, got out of army in my early 20’s.
Went to work on a sheep ranch.
Learned the concept of the more I hustle the more I make.
Then I understood the power of scaling.
After that I went back to school and became a registered nurse.
It took a couple years and then reemerged, that entrepreneurial bug never left.
I became my first employee. I became CEO of a real company.
Sold that company 3 years ago. Grew it for 14-15 years, also opened up some fitness centers and created some gyms, t-shirt companies. etc, and then 3 years ago had a life changing event and sold everything.
I wrote a book to my journey of finding deeper meaning.
Published it and in that 2 year span (last 2 years) started working with other entrepreneurs and been doing it professionally.
I have a 6 day course which is now “Biz Academy”.
Big Reason Why?
I feel like I’m in touch with something deeper.
Here’s why i do it…
Giving away $15-20K worth of education for $1 a day in my course.
Biggest Temporary Defeat?
My journey through this imposter syndrome.
Started questioning myself.
Weirdest Breakthrough Experience?
I havne’t gotten over it.
It’s this content voice in me. It propelled me forward cause while there is an element of fear it’s still fuel for me.
