Quick Juice Questions
34:43 What are the first steps that aspiring entrepreneurs should take?
Get really clear on what you want. Once you have that vision, it’s all about making goals, taking steps, getting yourself around the right people, and finding a mentor.
35:30 What has inspired you the most in your journey and where are you most inspired?
I’m inspired by action takers and motivated by fear. I don’t want to have any regrets. Life’s too short to be sat in your comfort zone.
36:35 Which book has inspired you and changed your thinking the most?
Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch
37:55 If there’s one last bit of Executive Juice you can share for people who want to get to the top of their property game, what would it be?
I believe that there are only two emotions. Every other emotion derives from these two: love and fear. Regardless of what you’re doing in life, the more that you can come from the emotion of love, the happier you’ll be, the more in tune you’ll be, the more fulfilled you’ll be, and the bigger impact you’ll have in other people’s lives.
- As long as you know you’ve tried your best, that’s all anyone can ever ask of you and all you can ever ask of yourself.
- Pretty much where I am today and everything that I teach is because of a lot of pain and a lot of cock-ups that I’ve made in business.
- You either pay for knowledge to prevent you from making mistakes or you pay the price for mistakes.
- All of my biggest learnings have come in times of pain.
- I’m always pushing for growth, and with growth comes growing pains.
- It’s not about the cost, but the return on your investment.
