I was going through my Google Alerts for Entrepreneur and Entrepreneurship the other day and came across an interesting article on Entrepreneur. It was an article that talked about the 4 Strategies John Lee Dumas used to build a $250k a month podcast. If you are not familiar with John Lee Dumas, he is the founder of Entrepreneur On Fire, which is a great podcast for entrepreneurs to have on their list of podcast.

HUSTLE. The word “sophisticated” business people hate to use and be associated with. The word hustle has a negative connotation attached to it for many people who operate a business but it is a word I love.
If you are an entrepreneur, small business owner, startup founder; you are most definitely hustling. You are not just operating passively because doing so would most certainly jeopardize your ability to be successful. You have to be aggressive/ assertive everyday while building your business. Just because opportunity is available, it doesn’t mean it will just be handed to you. Read More Why Entrepreneurs Must Love the Hustle
I am not one of those people who says you must go through extreme hardships in order to be considered an entrepreneur. And I am also not one of those people who believes that everyone should be an entrepreneur or can be an entrepreneur.

Last Wednesday I had my first meetup for my Meetup group Entrepreneurial Ambitions. The meetup went as expected with any new networking group. I had about 40 RSVPs but only about 10-12 people showed up. I was hoping for at least 15-20 people but I knew not to focus on the quantity of people in attendance but more on the quality of people in attendance. And fortunately, I had some ambitious individuals in attendance who reinforced my motivation for why I started the meetup in the first place.
One of the key questions that I had asked was, “Why did I create the Entrepreneurial Ambition’s Meetup group and what was the meaning of Entrepreneurial Ambitions?” Read More Why I Created the Entrepreneurial Ambition’s Meetup Group
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
I can’t even lie… I am tired and need a weekend of nothing but sleep and relaxation. Between working to make The Symmetry Firm successful, recruiting people for the Atlanta Entrepreneurial Ambition’s Meetup Group, creating the strategy for taking Entrepreneurial Ambitions to another level, writing for other sites, networking at least twice a week and going to the gym at least five days during the week; I am always on the go or working on something. But, honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. Read More Persistency in Entrepreneurship
