A few weeks ago, Dan and Ian sent out an email to the listeners of this podcast, in an attempt to get to know the audience a little better.

They were excited to find out that many listeners consider themselves to be entrepreneurial, but they don’t have their own business yet. They’d also recently met some young, dynamic, entrepreneurial minds at a Dynamite Circle Junto, and they thought it might be interesting and fun to explore what it means to be ‘an entrepreneurial person’.

This week’s episode is for those people. If you haven’t started a business yet, but you are ready to find a way to turn your dreams into aspirations, this is one for you.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • How some people can be entrepreneurs “in disguise”. (2:51)
  • What it really means to follow your passion. (8:00)
  • How the reality of your dream can often be different from what you believe it is. (11:43)
  • Why it doesn’t help to ask a successful entrepreneur “how can I help you?” (14:19)
  • A new business idea that Dan and Ian have decided to pursue. (25:25)

  • I was fortunate enough to get my butt kicked in the 2016 DCBKK one-day mastermind. I got solid advice from a very strong group of entrepreneurs that has helped me navigate a challenging time in my business. The challenge I discussed with the group there has just been resolved this week – and with the best possible outcome.

    I’m also a member of a mastermind group formed during one of last year’s DC mastermind rushes. Super smart people with diverse backgrounds and businesses – but we often face similar challenges. Jessica did a great job of matching us. We meet on skype every two weeks. It’s so refreshing to have a group of people outside my usual circle who can give objective feedback.

    I can’t recommend masterminds enough :)

    Hey guys! I just wanted to say thanks for this episode. I’ve been a listener for a few months now, and I got some great ideas from your business idea episodes that I want to pursue. However, this episode was particularly inspiring. I’ve got about a year left of college, but I want to finish for both me and my parents (they’d be devestated if I dropped out). In the meantime, I want to get started building a business and start meeting successful location independent entrepreneurs. Do you guys ever do DC meet ups in the US? If not, what other ways do you recommend meeting with folks to pick their brains and a get a grasp of the lifestyle? Thanks in advance, guys!

  • Melinda Jane

    Hi guys! Just wanted to say that it’s great you are opening up the possible option of masterminds for us smaller guys. I built a business in 2004 with a TERRIBLE business model. Wish I had known about you guys back then! Have been a listener since 2013 and have finally started building a business this year, based on a lot of advice from yourselves and the others I’ve heard on here, like Dan Norris. I would like to build much faster and exit my job within the year. Have no doubt that I could do this with a little bit of guidance. A mastermind would be ideal, for someone like me who has the grits, but not the 6 figure income to join the DC. Thanks for thinking of this!

    This sounded truly like a classical TMBA episode, which I haven’t heard last year. The advise of following another entrepreneur reminded me the “look down the hallway” method, which I find useful if as you can apply it to any organization before joining.
    Looking forward to the mastermind updates!

    Great episode, gents.

    I’d like to mention as well. It’s an existing service run by Ken Wallace (@boaticus) and I’ve heard good things about his matching algorithm.
