Stop letting yourself off the hook.
Too often, we fall victim to excuses, and these excuses become the way we do everything in our life. They become the habitual reasons we never reach our full potential, and yet most of us never realize we are the cause…or the solution.
Over the last few years, more and more people are jumping into the entrepreneurial life, but something is happening in the process—they’re letting themselves off the hook. They’re not showing up for themselves. They’re getting wrapped up in their emotions and doing all the wrong things that are ultimately leading to the demise of their business.
So I decided to interview Alex Charfen, co-founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar business, to get to the root of why most people are struggling with entrepreneurship.
It ended up being quite an emotional podcast.
Alex may be a multi-millionaire now, but he has struggled throughout his life and has even experienced bankruptcy.
As a kid, he had a difficult time fitting in. He was made fun of, mocked, and constantly judged (by kids and adults alike). He was the weird kid with massive self-awareness, always getting in trouble and constantly switching between the gifted classes and the special education classes, never knowing where he belonged. He spent much of his childhood surrounded by powerful women who supported each other emotionally. As a result, he developed an incredibly influential level of empathy, which I deem his superpower.
He has used his superpower to go from bankrupt to being on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies in the country three years in a row and won many other awards. Now, his mission is to help other entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses just like he did.
In this interview, he talks candidly about his struggles growing up and how he’s now using these experiences to make millions of dollars helping people. And you might be surprised to learn how he’s done it.
You will hear him talk about:
Why he’s no longer unschooling his kids (I absolutely loved this)
How his unique childhood experiences formed his massive level of empathy
How top-down pressure can destroy your team/business
How entrepreneurs are failing and how they should be running their business
How masculine and feminine energy can work synergistically to explode your business and make you millions
What’s missing in women-owned businesses that could be the one catalyst to their massive success
Why we say businesses are becoming more powerful than governments
You are going to really love hearing Alex share his heart and passion.
