Like my coach and mentor, Alex Mandossian says, successful entrepreneurs spend 80% of the time to pre-qualify their clients.
In Episode 017, Jack discusses the common mistake made by entrepreneurs who focus only on achieving their financial goals and not a bigger picture, namely, their business missions, their unique business proposition and who are the target audiences they serve.

So, Jack takes the opportunity to sort out the WHY in this Episode. Enjoy!
In Episode 016, Jack continues his discussion about making a request. It’s important to know from whom you are seeking help because the truth is that not everyone is qualified to help you to solve your problems. It is a risky move to seek help from people who are employees when your problem is about entrepreneurship. It is a risky move to seek help from auditors when your problem is about taxation. After listening to this episode, you will begin to realize that coaching and mentorship, which forms an essential component in business, actually helps you make more money and have more time to pursue your dreams!
In Episode 015, Jack continues the discussion of the risks associated with the entrepreneurs who are trying to solve all the problems by themselves. The question whether there is a need to do it. In fact, from Jack’s theory and experience, what works is for the entrepreneurs to be willing to surrender to the process of being vulnerable so that they can make a request to seek help from other people. Notice that there is a subtle difference between “making a request” and “can you please help me?” Jack will discuss the key difference between these two phrases. Enjoy.
In Episode 014, Jack will share with you the definition of an entrepreneur which he learned from his coach and mentor, Alex Mandossian (world renowned internet marketer) many years ago. He will also elaborate the risks associated with trying to solve every problem you clients have without seeking help from qualified people in your circle.
