BELOW IS A QUOTE FROM MY BUDDY JOE POLISH:
“One of my favorite ways to learn is by having discussions.
Almost every problem I’ve overcome and almost every success I’ve experienced had one thing in common: A Discussion.
It was a discussion I had with myself or with other people.
Many people have unproductive and unpleasant discussions with themselves. By focusing on having productive and useful discussions with others, you will learn how to have better discussions with yourself.
If you have a lot of angst in your life, you have to talk it (and think it) through.
If you’re facing what seems like an insurmountable situation, you simply need to know what to do.
This can be done with questions.
This can be done with tools.
This can be done with conversations.
The best thing about being your own boss is you are your own boss. Nobody tells you what to do. The worst thing about being your own boss is you are your own boss. You have no accountability, no one who will direct you, and sometimes you don’t know what you’re doing. You have to figure it out on your own. This is the angst of being an entrepreneur that most people don’t understand…
There are many entrepreneurs – myself included – that have sat at their desks and were just lost with no idea what to do.
This is why it’s great to have a place you can go to and think through things. In the world of addiction and recovery, it’s one of the reasons twelve-step groups are so valuable.
If you feel hopeless, you want people that believe in you more than you believe in yourself. You want people that are going to give you experience, strength and hope.
This is what the right groups can do. Business or otherwise.”
JOE GETS IT. HE AND I HAVE WORKED TOGETHER (A LOT), SUPPORTED EACH OTHER, AND HAVE HELPED EACH OTHER SUCCEED.
IT’S NICE KNOWING THAT THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO TRULY CARE AND WANT TO HELP IN ANY WAY THEY CAN.
