Throughout my career as a business owner and entrepreneur, I’ve had several people ask me why I put myself through this. Some naysayers have even blatantly told me that I’ll never make it. Whether you’re a seasoned business person or an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ve probably had someone tell you the same things. But, in the world of entrepreneurship, you’ll need to learn to put your earplugs on and keep working—because here, attitude is everything.  

In this episode, I discuss the value of attitude in the life of an entrepreneur and business owner. I reveal the key characteristics that differentiate seasoned business owners from novice entrepreneurs. I explain how success is highly dependent on your goals and why it’s essential to define what success means for you. I also highlight the value of having a vision and the role of crystal-clear plans.

“Your attitude is everything. The way you approach every single day is everything.” - Justin Goodbread
