The Number One Mistake Everybody Makes on Twitter –

It was so incredible to participate in Dave Ramsey’s event. Thanks to everybody who came out, and a HUGE special thanks to the lovely people who stayed after to help me make this episode.

To me there is no such thing as “an entrepreneur with a JOB.” If you’re a true entrepreneur, you can’t breathe when you have a JOB. If you’re not out there making it happen and running a business, you’re not an entrepreneur, you’re a person with entrepreneurial tendencies. Now that’s fine. As long as you’re HAPPY that’s what matters.

    I just got hooked listening to your podcast through a FB video I just saw recently. I am afraid to fail in front of my family (brothers, nephews, niece, mother) but most importantly my father. He is an immigrant who has worked hard since he was 13 years old in the fields picking oranges, to owning his own construction business until the crisis in 2008, and now he works in the oil rigs and has grown a ranch from 1 cow when he started at 15 to over 150 cows as I write this and he is 53. Just afraid of not making it by not working hard enough. Thank you, just writing this it made me feel better.

    I think I am afraid of failing in front of myself and my family, which in turn would destroy my belief that I am an entrepreneur. I don’t know whether I will be able to take weight of that event, and that is what is holding me back.
    Due to this reason I just keep planning but never execute.

    Gosh, writing this really helped me face my true fear!
    Thanks Gary 🙂

    I dont want to fail my children. I dont want them to suffer because of my burning desire to go into entreprenurship full time.
