Our success is often limited because of the excuses we make in order to avoid putting in the work to make it happen. But if we dig deep and challenge these excuses, we can achieve a level of success that is greater than what we could have imagined for ourselves. Once we make the commitment to take ownership and push ourselves, nothing can hold us back from realizing our true potential.
In this episode, Daniel sits with business visionary and co-owner of The Marketing Hunters, Ruben Alvarez. Listen in as Daniel and Ruben discuss the importance of honoring the sacrifices of those before us by not limiting ourselves, surrounding ourselves with the right people, putting in the effort to plant seeds of success, letting go of ego, and trusting in our abilities and most importantly, in God. They also talk about how to make a brand for ourselves, how to create balance, why it’s important to be human in our interactions, and how consistency can impact our results.
