Making a difference in the world starts with making a difference where you are. Entrepreneurship can be an incredibly rewarding journey, but it can also be full of challenges. It takes dedication, grit, and the right mindset and values to make a real impact on your community. By taking that bold first step, you can create something meaningful no matter where you are right now in your journey.
This week, Daniel sits with Go Lead Everything [GLE] founder, Phil Swanson. From working as an engineer, Phil decided to jump into entrepreneurship and make a difference beyond the walls of his job. Today, he is on a mission to inspire more people as he navigates the business world.
Listen in as Phil shares the GLE core values and how we can foster these values to change our present and achieve the results we want. Daniel and Phil also discuss why we should be careful who we listen to, how we can protect our hearts as we experience successes, why we should learn to celebrate ourselves, how to know what our priorities really are, and where we can gain the courage to step forth and fulfill our mission.
