“I don’t think you can go eight hours a day with something, whatever it is (with me, it’s a company), you can’t do that unless you’re in love, unless you have a passion, because it doesn’t give you back all that much at times, at times it gives you a lot of pain, a lot of heartaches.” Joe Foster, Founder of Reebok.
The concept of “Balance” assumes that there’s some aspect of equality, a notion of equilibrium. Go ahead and set all those ideas aside. Forget balance. Instead, accept and adopt prioritization. Then say, based on the season of life that you’re in and what your values are (the things that really, really matter to you), what you’re going to prioritize. “Because at the end of the day, I’m one human being with the same 24 hours as everybody else. And the more in demand you are, the less you’re going to be able to check all those boxes off.” Ryan Deiss

Entrepreneurs are learning that you don’t have to have a pile of money sitting in the bank to acquire a business or a business asset. And, Acquisitions win over every other business-growth strategy when it comes to building your business faster than you ever thought you could. In today’s episode, we’re sharing a section from the first session of Roland Frasier’s Epic Challenge. He discusses the giant opportunity for Entrepreneurs in times of recession (and why Acquisitions are better than Startups).
In this episode, you get to listen in on an EPIC zoom meeting. Roland is talking to Adam Lyons. You may know him as the Dating coach but today we’re talking about something different- because Roland has ‘completely changed the way Adam thinks about business.’ Yes, you guessed it, we’re talking about no-money-out-of-pocket Acquisitions.
