Are you emotionally equipped to be an entrepreneur? Do you have an outside in perspective? Do you know how to engage as an entrepreneur in both the good times and the not so great? When I started my first company I thought I had all the answers and all the questions. I quickly learned I needed to get some new questions and some needed answers versus the ones I wanted to get.
My guest not only has a B.A. and an M.S. in psychology and communications, he has a life degree in entrepreneurship and leadership and is known as The Leadership Therapist. I know him as husband to my dear friend and editor Jocelyn and also as friend. I quote him in my award winning book and I respect him for his insightful perspectives.
Join us at 5PM ET/2 PM PT/22 GMT on October 8, 2014 as we discuss, among other things, what the most important thing is an entrepreneur needs to do to not just survive but to excel. If you can’t catch us live, catch the replay on iTunes and Stitcher!
