EP 26: How to make shit happen with Sean Whalen

Most people try to build a big business and then fit their life into that business. While this can lead to success, it’s usually ugly because you have to work 18-20 hour days and neglect all the other areas of your life. 

The truth is you’ve been programmed since birth to take the hardest route possible. And more often than not this ends in a premature mid-life crisis. 

But what if I told you it was possible to create a 7-figure business working as little as 2 hours a week? While you’re probably skeptical, it is possible. And it starts with asking questions — to yourself and to other successful entrepreneurs. There’s no quicker way to accelerate your success than by asking questions. 

In this episode, Sean Whalen joins me to reveal the dark side of success, why making money should be the least of your priorities, and how to create a life you actually enjoy.
