Just because opportunity is available, it doesn’t mean it will just be handed to you. Read More Why Entrepreneurs Must Love the Hustle

Entrepreneurship is not some job with set hours and set requirements outlined for you to perform. Entrepreneurship is an ongoing process of actions that you have to continuously develop and properly structure in order to produce the most rewarding output for your efforts.

Last weekend I had my mind awakened to an unsettling realization. I left the rat race of the J.O.B. (just over broke) to only be in the rat race of entrepreneurship! I was quite shocked and ashamed of myself when I came to this conclusion.

So what is the entrepreneur rat race?

How could someone who speaks about success find themselves actively participating within the entrepreneur rat race?

Well this is a transparent blog and I have no problem sharing the details of my journey, so I will explain. Read More The Entrepreneur Rat Race

Mark Zuckerberg wears the same clothes every day so he can limit the time he spends making “frivolous” decisions so he can concentrate on real work. Both Steve Jobs and President Obama have a similar view on everyday decisions, and that makes sense. When you run a big company (or a country), you want to focus all your time on decisions that matter. Read More Make Decisions Like a Great Leader (Guest Post)
