The 5 Identities Of An Entrepreneur

The 5 Identities Of An Entrepreneur
For detailed notes and links to resources mentioned in this video, visit

Have you ever met an overachiever — someone that performs at a completely different level? Immediately you feel their presence! Do you know what I’m talking about?

You may wonder why they think the way they do, and why they have the level of energy they do.

A lot of people say that I’m different than a lot of people online and that I present things from a different perspective. They want to know who I look up to and admire, and who I get my inspiration from.

That’s such a great question, so I decided to make a video on it.

In this video I cover the five identities of an entrepreneur.

#1: Athlete – 1:44

Here are the things an entrepreneur can learn from athletes:

*Work Ethic – 2:44

If you want to be inspired, watch this 20-second scene – 5:12

*Athletes Play When Everyone Else is on Vacation- 7:08

*Athletes Stay in Shape — 8:44

*Athletes Practice — 9:09

*Interviews – 9:18

*They’re competitive – 10:09

#2: Head Coach – 11:13

#3: CEO – 13:05

#4: Leader of the Nation — 15:06

#5: They Think About Someone Who is About to Lose it All — 18:41

    Very informative and totally accurate advices! Thanks a lot Pat, Mario and the rest of the Valuetainment crew! More power! Btw, the people who disliked the vid are the underachievers who are contented with their rat race form of living!

    I was just talking to some relatives about being a salary because they keep constantly comparing me to other people without talking about it to me.. it takes me out of my comfort zone mentally when I think about it.. it’s aggravating because when people perceive you as unsuccessful they compare you but when start to succeed the same people are quite or to jump on the wagon with you like they are part of the success story. Being successful to some people feels pointless if you experience how easy it is to lose everything you work for.

    Pat, I have been volunteering as a youth basketball coach since 1995 when I finished playing after High School. Its very competitive in Brooklyn/Queens area. Last night we lost the championship game of a big 10 year old Christmas tournament 33-31 and missed the last shot of the game. We beat 3 of the 4 final four teams to get to the championship. What made me think of VALUETAINMENT was when I was walking to the quarterfinals game against one of the final four teams that was supposed to spank us, I was sooo PUMPED, I felt like I understood what Arnold was talking about. I realized that I was experienced, having coached for 22 years. I was prepared having continued to study videos up until minutes before the game about the defenses these teams played by Bobby Knight & Coach K, etc. The boys and I were both physically fit and prepared for an intense game from numerous practices and workouts while everyone took the Christmas week off. During these games, we experienced everything you mentioned, had to sell the boys they could win, had to bench a star who then came back to perform under pressure. Had to sell a lower skill player that he could finish when his # was called. I sat at my desk this morning disappointed by the loss however so excited to bring that level of PUMP to my business. My team and I are experts in our field, prepared to win, continually educating and committed to the goal. I played the VALUETAINMENT video to start my day and this one came up next in the playlist. Very appropriate. PS. Look out for my boys in the Brooklyn/Queens playoffs in February and look out for my business, Tech 2 Success in 2017!

    Successful entrepreneurs are a compilation of many different industries, athletes have very good work ethic and show up everyday, stay in shape and work like someone if fighting for your position, in correlation entrepreneurs are much like coaches because they are very good as developing people, CEO’s have to be humble and give credit for successes and take the fall for bad things, recognize individuals, pride, mild paranoia is good

    I think you’re super smart guy but when you started talking about 911 you lost me. After all the shit you see with wiki leaks and all the other sources pointing how corrupt the government is. You is a business owner and the person that reads so much still believe 911 “just happened” come on man wake up!

    Still going- great video Pat. Awesome points. I especially loved the points over the mindset of an Athlete.

  • April 23, 2017 at 4:50 am

    Brevity. Your points would be much more powerful if you were more succinct and got straight to the point, instead of rambling on for 25 minutes. You could have said all that in less than half the time.
