This course is primarly for the creative people, entrepreneurial personalities, career misfits and troublemakers who struggle, suffer and cannot seem to flow into a great niche for them. A niche where you are appreciated and valued for your unique talents, ideas, creativity and energy.
Being locked into a boring, restrictive or unfulfilling career is a very significant problem. It is a major cause of sickness, depression, wasted talent, broken marriages and even death.
The most frequent way we try to escape is to start a traditional business.. There are many types of businesses but many require we invest much time, resources and money. Maybe hire employees, rent retail or office space and take major financial and personal risk. Many, including me learned the hard way that having a entrepreneurial, creative personality often does not translate into business success. In truth financial failure is common. This can be devastating. It is also a major cause of sickness, depression, wasted talent, broken marriages and even death.
This is the old world and still a major part, even the majority of our current world.
There is a movement in progress. With the constant change, competition and turmoil in the world many businesses are hiring and embracing people like us.
But you don't have to wait.
The main goal of this course is to help you thrive in your current job and current career beginning right now.
If and when you are ready to make a change, this course helps you do that also.
This is an awesome time to be alive for creative and entrepreneurial people and this course helps you plug into a movement that is much larger than this course.
No longer do creative people, entrepreneurial personalities, career misfits and troublemakers have to struggle, suffer and not be able to flow into a good niche for them. You can now more easily find a career niche where you are appreciated and valued for your unique talents, ideas, creativity and energy.
Yes it is easier now. The ground is more fertile for us to grow. But as mentioned above your mindset, strategy, techniques and behavior is what really will make the difference for you no matter where you work.
So this course is an introduction to finding and identifying awesome companies and situations for us creative and entrepreneurial personalities.
The main focus of this course is to teach you about how to be an entrepreneurial employee in your career and in any company.
After much struggle, suffering and pain in my career I finally discovered and embraced this system of how to thrive more in any job and how to grow into your ideal job and career or even transition into a low risk, high upside non-traditional business.
Understand why creative & entrepreneurial personalities (and most other people) struggle to be successful when they start a traditional business and how it often has dire consequences.
In my day job I’m the CFO, Controller for the US Operations of a large international manufacturing company. Formerly I was the CFO for a $20 million diversified manufacturing company with 200 employees.
Over my 35-year career, I’ve had jobs where I felt bored, frustrated and undervalued. Often, I just wanted to get out of that job.
Because I’ve got an entrepreneurial outlook, a number of times I decided to start my own business. Or expand a part-time side business into a full-time venture. Being overconfident and optimistic, I happily ventured out on my own.
Though some of those entrepreneurial ventures were successful, none of them made me rich. I learned a lot and gained a lot of skills and insights. But some of them also cost me a lot personally. One of them drained my savings and took a big toll on my marriage, my health, and my finances.
I know the classic line to say at this point would be that even with everything I’ve been through – the successes and the failures – I “wouldn’t change a thing.” In fact, there are a lot of things I’d change if I had the chance to go back and do it differently!
My lessons learned the hard way and many other lessons and knowledge I have learned are the basis for my courses.
