The Dropout Multimillionaire: How To Succeed in Business With No Money, No Education, and No Clue
“If you’re going to come to me and use me as a coach, I’m not going to delve into your personality. Together, we will look at what really matters — your business and your numbers — and be very tactical. I say I can make you better. You just have to listen.”
Brian Will — entrepreneur, business owner, and bestselling author — joins Connor to discuss the entrepreneur mindset, imposter syndrome, and the value of mentorship. Learn about how entrepreneurs should be realistic about their abilities and weaknesses and why finding (and vetting) the best business coach matters.
- Imposter syndrome is real. Everyone experiences moments of weakness and doubt, regardless of their level of success. Fight imposter syndrome by seeking guidance from mentors or coaches who have faced similar challenges and can provide practical advice based on their own experiences, rather than relying on advice from individuals who are too far ahead in terms of wealth or achievements.
- Entrepreneurs are a different breed. Entrepreneurs tend to be overly optimistic and can often struggle to be realistic about their own abilities and weaknesses — often falling prey to a “fake it till you make it” mentality. They should instead focus on understanding their own capabilities and surround themselves with individuals who can complement their weaknesses, enabling them to concentrate on their strengths.
- Finding the right coach matters. Entrepreneurs should vet potential coaches and mentors to ensure they have relevant experience and knowledge and have achieved success in critical areas of focus. Mentorship doesn’t need to be expensive; even informal conversations with experienced individuals can be extremely valuable to less-experienced, financially constrained entrepreneurs.
