TMBA 230: Entrepreneurial Mindset Fundamentals post image

*** Are you interested in attending our high level mastermind in April or May? If you can fill out this brief survey, we’ll send you more details shortly. ***

In this week’s episode, I’ve been reflecting about how far things have come since I began dreaming about working remotely. Staying true to that, we are revisiting a previous episode in which Ian and I discussed the less glamorous parts of entrepreneurship, and how to handle the necessary challenges to become a successful entrepreneur.

Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • 9 tough truths about running or starting your business that bloggers won’t tell you about.
  • How to accept that in order to be successful, you need to be obsessed.
  • Our top 3 tips for people who are getting started with their business.
  • How to change your mindset to a winning one.
  • Some of our favorite software for growing our businesses.

  • I’m in my home office this morning drafting oil & gas leases for my day job and I realize there are two podcasts that I REALLLYY look forward to each week.

    1) TMBA
    2) Fizzle Show

    Very different but such a deadly combination. Keep it up Dan and Ian! My mindset is slowly changing and I just may be able to pull off something amazing in 2014, no small thanks to the TMBA.

    Have fun in Boracay, it is one of the nicest places in Philippines. Waving at you from Manila, trying to make the dream come true :) ….

  • Dillon Carter

    Passionate Fuel for the young and stuck entrepreneur! TMBA always picks me up to keep moving on :)

    @dan Any tips on finding a mentor related to what you want to achieve? Especially if they are location free like you guys in SE Asia etc…

  • Barry

    Thanks Dan. I was just thinking the other day how I missed some of this sort of material your older shows.

  • Dan

    Thanks for that Barry !

  • Dan

    Hey Dillon thanks for that ! :D

    Regarding mentors they might be hiding right under your nose… which people / businesses online are you really attracted to? What products and services do you love to use… also consider where you could have the most impact/provide the most value. Sometimes it’s better to find a mentor who can really benefit a ton from your input over somebody who’s just a superstar.

  • Dan

    Hey Jacob that’s badass sir! There is no way to have a bad time in Boracay! :) Wish you the best with the business

  • Dan

    YESSIR!!! Very much appreciate that Donnie we’ll do our best to keep at the top of the rotation…

  • Dan

    by the way, got a favorite episode of the FIzzle show? I’d love to check it out.

  • #1, How to find your voice, was helpful to me but I think they’re all good. Again, VERY different from your shorter action packed no fluff podcast. With the fizzle show you’ll have to listen to a longer podcast with more rants and back and forth banter. I enjoy it!

  • Dan

    Cheers Donnie appreciate that, I’m heading to download it now. For others:

  • Dillon Carter

    Thanks for your response Dan :) I need to determine exactly what I want to accomplish and find someone who has done that very well and follow them.

  • Will

    Awesome episode guys, thanks. Do you both live in Bali? I lived in Jimbaran last year, shame I didnt know about Tropical MBA as I would have had a load of questions while starting my online business.

  • Dan

    Currently both moving around quite a bit!!!!

  • Dan,

    I was really encouraged by this episode. I love your, “Get in line!” as well as your own personal mind-set of being an entrepreneur isn’t just about making money, but that there needs to be adventure in as well. (“Dang! I love that!”)


  • Dan

    thanks Robb appreciate that !
