For years you’ve heard, “Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” Fact or fiction? NY Times best-selling author of “Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck” and speaker, Jon Acuff, is here today to give us the answer. After spending 15 years in corporate America, he shares everything he knows about what it takes to be a GREAT business owner and what you need to STOP doing right now if you want to thrive.
Jon gives us 5 definitive things every agent (or any business owners) should be doing to help them rise above the competition.
- They’re always learning.
- They have humility in what they do and how they do it.
- They are hyper aware of where they invest their money and their time!
- They grow large enough to get help and they’re wise enough to know when they need it.
- They are able to read what a client needs.
Tim & Jon drill down on these points, covering the reasons why some people are lifelong learners and others are not, and what it says about them. From ego, to complacency and real life examples of businesses that lost big because they were unwilling to change. In addition to the 5 things Jon says all entrepreneurs should be doing, he dives into what they should let go of, before it comes back to bite them!
Jon talks about the importance of reading results and knowing when to pivot, staying on top of trends, and having relationships with those in your industry that are both older and younger. He even touches on social media and gets right to the point about how to know where you need to be and why.
From his break-out satire blog & book, “Stuff Christians Like” to his best selling books on how to make work awesome, chase your dreams and reinvent your workday, Jon tells the hard core truths on how to make the hustle happen, with humor and a relevancy will resonate with every entrepreneur.
