TMBA 103 (LBP93) – The Single Most Important Entrepreneurial Skillset post image

Ian look like he knows what he’s doing

What good is a location independent lifestyle business if you can’t enjoy it?

Dan & Ian join us from the beach at Badladz Resort in Puerto Galera where they have been adventuring around the shooting range, playing with go-carts on the back roads, cutting deals and hustlin’ connections like a boss, and relaxing/karaokeing with friends in various cities across the Philippines.

Taking a break from pounding the pavement, this week they’re talking about the most important entrepreneurial skillset one can possess. It isn’t a degree or marketing plan or venture capitalist in your back pocket.

It’s all in your head.

We’re talking mindset.

Set against the lull of ocean waves and sea breeze, Dan & Ian break the entrepreneurial mindset down into 4 Basic Points:

    1. Don’t work with assholes
    2. How to handle “free work”
    3. Success time frames
    4. Johnny vs. Jeffie – A tale of two approaches to entrepreneurship and advice

Listener Question:

Benjamin from vLighthouse asks: A year ago, I started building a SaaS application in hopes of one day quitting my job.  Problem is — I put up a front-facing website and made a cool video, AND… nothing.  This is a huge fear of mine — that nobody wants it and a year’s worth of writing code late at night (after working a job I hate) is for naught. How were you able to overcome challenges like this?  To do everything yourself, from writing code, to marketing, to whatever else is necessary.
