When I dreamed of being an entrepreneur I admit that I only thought of the good things. The freedom, the unlimited vacations, the unlimited amounts of money I could make but I hardly thought about the losses, the faith and the mental capacity you need to keep fighting. Today I wanted to bring on my friend Anthony Goss who quit his corporate job 3 years ago to pursue his dream of being an actor.
“A young man once asked a great and famous older man, How can I make a name for myself in the world and become successful? The great and famous man replied: You have only to decide upon what it is you want and then stay with it, never deviating from your course no matter how long it takes, or how rough the road, until you have accomplished it.”
I’m excited about today’s interview because it’s the real deal. I’m talking about the importance of having a positive circle, dealing with doubts, the importance of having faith in God, why you need to pretend you’re still in college and so much more.
I wanted to just sit down and press the record button to give you guys an authentic conversation about entrepreneurship that people don’t really talk about much so sit back grab some tea (or wine) and get ready to go on this journey with us.
