Are you a budding entrepreneur? Are you noodling with the idea of creating a company that will make a difference? Where do you start? What are lessons you can learn from? Why not hear from successful trendsetters?
You’ll want to listen in to this interview that I did (and enjoyed!) for the Planning Your Leap podcast.
I have reinvented myself and my career many times. Part of it was to survive, but most of it was to thrive.
Before finding success as a Feng Shui master, I lived a disciplined corporate life while simultaneously pursuing Feng Shui. As Vice President of a Fortune 100 company, I oversaw 65,000 workstations and 2,500 servers. I’ve worked command centers for the NY terrorist attack, Hurricanes Lili & Isidore, the Ft. Worth tornado, and more.
So why did I leap from corporate America into (my own) business, and how did I do it? Instead of searching for possibilities, I manifested them. Questions the host, Melin Isa, may ask include:
- What motivated you to start a business in the first place?
- Did you start the business on the side or dive in full-time?
- What were the first few steps that you took?
- How did you find your clients?
- What was that moment when you realized you really can make a good living from your business?
- How do you generate revenue today?
- What type of people did you surround yourself with at the beginning compared to now?
- You had a view of what you thought owning a business would be like. Has that view changed?
- Has there been a low point in your entrepreneurial journey? What did you do to get back on track? What did you learn from that experience?
- Out of the many successes you’ve had, is there one that stands out the most? How did you achieve it?
- What are your strengths and weaknesses as an entrepreneur?
- Share a personal habit that contributes to your success.
- If you were to write a letter to your pre-entrepreneur self, what would you say?
- What advice would you give to someone who is starting their journey into entrepreneurship?
