This podcast was supposed to be the 4th in a series I was doing with Anthony Witt from The Champion Entrepreneur – but things got lost in the mix and I just put this out. Anthony and I are still working together on Entrepreneur Dream Academy (See below). Check out the other podcasts we have done in this series:
- Episode 102 – Finding Your Why
- Episode 103 – How to Find Your Passion and Your Why
- Episode 104 – Validating Your Business Idea
Want to learn how to find your passion and make it profitable? Anthony and I are launching the Entrepreneur Dream Academy in mid-September! We will be coaching a small group of hopeful entrepreneurs to help them find a business they love and develop a solid plan. We will walk each person through the process and give them the tools and connections they need to make a real go of it. Have you ever dreamed of starting a business? Have you ever thought about leaving the corporate world? Or are you just looking for something on the side? (Everyone needs to make 25% of their income from a side business – see why here!)
