EP 130: Family, Friends, and Fighting: The Cold Truth of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is a lonely path. Most entrepreneurs outgrow their family and friends. And when you try to help your loved ones succeed, they may hear a completely different message than you intended.

This recently happened to me and my family for the first time ever. And even though I lost some sleep at first, I’m excited now. Because it means they’re finally ready to listen to my message.

In this episode, you’ll discover the cold truth of entrepreneurship and why it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. But if you stick around after listening to this episode, you’ll experience success most can’t even dream about.

Listen now.

Show highlights include:

  • Why your closest friends and family members are often the biggest shackles to growth (even if you love them) (8:45)
  • The “Washing Machine” trap for spending years grinding without seeing major results (and how to break free) (10:25)
  • How leaning into uncomfortable situations where you make a fool out of yourself puts your bank account on steroids (18:03)
