While this episode is 6 weeks old I will answer the question of the day. I am currently living in the hardest decision I had to make. I have spent the last 7 years at a wireless company 5 of those years in middle management all the while I have continued to build a small music career as well as working on producing podcasts and other business ventures. One of the things that held back growth in those things outside of work was the 50+ hours a week I had to invest in being a successful leader and developer of sales reps. Back in April I left my job to be at home with my 3 boys more while my wife pursued a position she loves and so I could focus on growing my business. So far I have failed pretty hard due to the fact that I molded my recent ventures to partner with some former coworkers who all backed out when it came time for them to put in the work.
Due to some issues I had with the local press 10 years ago while running for public office, most of my business ventures have been about me being in the background. I would do all the planning and work so others could feel like CEOs. I realized that in my recent venture that I was hiding behind a company name when the other people disappeared. I have decided to do something so uncomfortable for me that I cringe a little every time I think about it. I am creating a hub under my name that combines all my artistic, entrepreneurial, and social activist ventures into one site and focus on putting myself out there. Embracing my ego and being confident in the fact that I have so much value to offer is so incredibly hard. Unlike you Gary Vee, very few know who the hell I am but I hope to change that in one years time!
