No matter what successful entrepreneur you talk about, from Sir Richard Branson to Elon Musk, every one of them has come to a place where they were almost out of cash or didn’t have the resources they needed to take their next step.

Kent says that if you want to become an entrepreneur or business owner you should get used to the idea of feeling like you don’t have the resources you really need to accomplish what you want to accomplish. The resources are not the issue. Find out what is the issue on this episode.

Wishful thinking doesn’t accomplish anything. Too many people call their dreams “goals” when they are not doing anything tangible to attain them. Those are not goals, they are wishes – things you hope for but aren’t willing to put in the effort to attain. This episode is a kick in the seat to anyone who thinks their hard knocks in life or their lack of resources is what are holding them back. You’ve got to understand, everyone faces the same issues, even the people that you view as being super successful. It’s their attitude, their mindset that changes everything for them. You can be the same if you really want to. Listen to this episode to find out more.

Entrepreneurs are a strange breed of people. They are people who envision a better future and chart a course to get there. Then they start walking and never stop until they arrive. Are you that kind of person? You might want to have a business of your own or be able to earn your income apart from a 9 to 5 job, but if you are not willing to chart a course and stick with it you will never become the person who is able to accomplish those things. Determination and resilience are powerful, and people who are successful know how to apply them to the real, difficult circumstances of life and business. Listen to Kent’s explanation on this episode of The Time Is Now.
