What’s your definition of success?
Waking up happy knowing you are able to do what you love, and being able to give generously from an overflow of income. There’s a lot of stress that comes with building businesses, but these things make it worthwhile.
What are some important habits you have that contribute to your success?
Focus on the project with the biggest payoff. There’s often one major task that can move the needle on other projects or goals of yours. It’s easy to get caught up in smaller projects, but keeping your focus on the biggest one will move you forward faster.
Do you have any advice for others looking to do what you’ve done?
Set big goals and take action on them every single day. Consistency is the key to getting what you want.
