How did you come to do what you’re doing today?

I saw a void in the marketplace. I wanted to listen to a podcast every day that shared the journey of a successful entrepreneur. It didn’t exist, so I set out to create it, and EOFire was born! I am a big believer in Gandhi’s quote, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Can you describe a typical day in your life?

What do you most enjoy about what you do?

The ripple effect. Inspiring people to take action, and seeing THOSE people inspiring others is simply amazing.

Are there any people and/or books that have inspired you along your journey?

The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen.

According to a recent article about you and your business, you grew EOFire from $0 to $2 million in just two years. Incredible. While this may be a tall order for other entrepreneurs out there, what strategies might you suggest our readers use to start growing their business today? 

Most people know the power of mentors, but they look for mentors in the wrong places. You have to find a mentor who is currently where you want to be. Then find a way to provide enough value to that mentor so you can become an apprentice. 

What is the number one piece of advice you’re asked (and give) about your podcast, Entrepreneur On Fire?

Set and accomplish goals the SMART way. That is why I wrote The Freedom Journal.

Can you share something that people may be surprised to learn about you?

I won a car on The Price Is Right. Check it out on my About Me page. J

What’s next for you?

The official launch of The Freedom Journal on January 4th, 2016. I can’t wait!
