Becoming an entrepreneur is one thing, but becoming a ridiculously successful entrepreneur is another thing altogether. Getting to the level of extraordinary is going to require a major shift in your mindset. There is no easy path to the top, but I do want to make this information as easily digestible and clear for anyone that desires greatness at an intrinsic level. This episode is a compilation of the best lessons I’ve learned along the way to building Quest and Impact Theory. It sounds simple, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work and grit on your part to get after it, become the learner, acquire the skills you need and become extraordinary in a way that allows you to build your business, scale, and make the biggest impact.
