Show Notes:

  • To be successful, do you need to have money, intelligence, connections, everything going for you?
  • Read biographies and that is not the case
  • In 1966, this man dropped out of school because of a learning disability
  • Then started a student magazine and sold advertising
  • Four years later started selling records to his subscribers
  • Opened a store, then a recording studio and his own record label
  • Over the next decade his record label became very successful and he started more companies
  • Today over 400 companies under his direction – you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out who this man is, I don’t want to spoil it for you
  • Main needs are motivation, some vision, and action

To your best life,
Carol
