How did I end up here?
How did I end up an entrepreneur, working my own schedule, choosing my own clients, and enjoying my work?
Well it wasn’t all cupcakes and lollipops, that is for sure.
I recently had the pleasure of sharing my story with John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. John’s podcast is one of the top-ranked podcasts in iTunes. It’s a seven-day-a-week podcast that has featured guests like Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barbara Corcoran, Guy Kawasaki, Chris Brogan, and me (you tell me which one of those is not like the other).

Are you prepared to ignite?
That’s the question that John Lee Dumas asks at the beginning of each episode of his amazing podcast, Entrepreneur on Fire. After spending nearly an hour with him yesterday being interviewed for an upcoming episode, I consider John a friend. After listening to approximately half of his more than 300 episodes, I am on fire.
My episode will air in the next two months. In it I share my entrepreneurial journey. I also asked John to share a very important tip about community for entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and all leaders alike.
Take it away John…
Don’t go it Alone, Community Matters
The good old 9 to 5. Health insurance, regular paychecks and a built-in community of individuals who are there to help you when you have questions, support you when you’re prepping for that big presentation and who motivate you when you’re having a bad day.
It was 11:00 in the morning on a Monday…and I was on my way to the zoo.
That’s when I realized I’ve made it.
I’m about to record an interview with one of my favorite people in the world, John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. (Side note: He wrote a killer guest post for me that will be coming up soon…I can’t wait to share it with you.)
One of the questions he asks every interviewee is, “Have you had an ‘I’ve made it’ moment?” For some reason, that question rattled in my brain for a few days after we scheduled the interview.
