What’s your edge as an entrepreneur?
Most people don’t realize it, but the things we do in our spare time can have a massive impact on how we show up in the entrepreneurial world.
These things can develop into habits that can help you get one step ahead of the competition.
Growing up, Sean Castrina lived well below the poverty line, but what he lacked in money, he gained in literal strength and determination when he began competing as an athlete, going the extra mile, and doing what his opponents would not.
This work ethic in sports blended perfectly into the entrepreneurial world, giving Sean an edge against his business rivals and helping him come out on top, every single time.
Sean Castrina is a successful business coach and a true serial entrepreneur, having started more than 20 successful companies over the last 25 years. He is also the bestselling author of The Greatest Entrepreneur in the World, 8 Unbreakable Rules for Business Startup Success, and World’s Greatest Business Plan.
Sean has contributed to some of the most recognized media outlets including Forbes, Inc., Yahoo Finance, MSNBC, as well as guest lectured at some of America’s finest colleges. He is also the host of one of iTunes most-listened-to business podcasts, The Ten Minute Entrepreneur.
In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Sean and I discuss why being an athlete at an early age helped him become a highly successful entrepreneur, how he became addicted to pain medication without even know it, and why college is becoming less relevant as we progress as a society.
