At an early age (four years old), today’s guest decided to become a millionaire. Twenty-one years later, he achieved it. That might sound like the end of the story, but it’s actually the beginning.
Deciding at the age of four to become a millionaire is not very common. Usually four-year olds want to become a firefighter, an astronaut, or perhaps an athlete or doctor. But JV Crum III was an entrepreneur at heart, starting his first business at five years old, and made a decision early in life that he wanted to become a millionaire.
When he achieved that dream at the age of twenty-five, he discovered it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. He was basically living the American Dream but he writes, “I thought that becoming a millionaire would be the whole answer, but I wasn’t happy nor was I fulfilled.” We discuss how he came to that realization and what it was like to realize that he hit his goal, had all the stuff he dreamed about and discover he wasn’t truly happy.
I also ask JV if he thinks entrepreneurs are born, made, or if that path in life is something you have to decide on. His answer might surprise you.
We also discuss the power of visualization, specifically how he coaches someone through his conscious process. And since JV has spent decades studying ultra-successful people, I ask him about some of the common traits among them.
This is an interview that you don’t want to miss.
