Entrepreneurs are a whole nother Animal. What it takes to succeed against all the odds under tremendous pressure, requires you to tap into "The Monster". The Monster doesn't accept failure, the Monster has no fear, the Monster is the King of The Jungle.
Make no mistake you need some Monster in you if you are to succeed as an Entrepreneur. Much like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, that Monster can creep into and start taking over the other aspects of your life.
I've invited many courageous Leaders to join the Podcast this Season and share their stories. They've been open, honest and vulnerable. For our Season One Finale, I thought it only fitting I return the gesture and introduce you all to my wife, to share our story and her story of being Married to "The Monster".

I've been fortunate to have so many amazing women influence my life and business. I realize how much better they have made me as a Leader and Entrepreneur.

Most people fantasize about being an Entrepreneur. Winning the lottery and entrepreneurship are at the top of list. The difference is your odds are way better as an Entrepreneur but so are your risk. We brought Teddy onto the podcast for todays episode.

Well we talk about why, how and what steps it takes. We had some REAL TALK and some great drinks while sharing Teddy's experience and some REAL actionable advice for the wouldbe Entrepreneur.
