[00:00:30] My favorite entrepreneur is Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx. Her story is really quite incredible.
[00:01:00] She had a failed law school career, and then sold fax machines door-to-door in the Florida heat, which is where she’s from. She became one of the top salesman in the nation by the age of 25, and then essentially was solving her own problem with going door-to-door in that heat and having hoisery issues.
She created Spanx, like I said, by solving her own problem, and went from the hosiery mill to hosiery mill being turned down in North Carolina, where they’re manufactured, until finally someone really truly believed in her concept. Then, we know the rest is history.
[00:01:30] My favorite entrepreneur? Well, I know that person very well because it’s probably the most risk-taking and determined person I know. Persistent, and adaptable. Hard-working. Organized. Responsible. Committed. Customer-oriented. Innovative. The most professional one. Very competitive. Confident. Independent. Highly self-motivated. Profit-oriented. Faithful. Optimistic, and basically a little bit multi-tasking. That favorite person, or that favorite entrepreneur. That’s me.
[00:02:00] I’m my favorite entrepreneur.
[00:02:30] I encourage you that you are your favorite entrepreneur too, because you have to believe in what you do. You have to enjoy what you do. You have to wake up every single morning and think, “Wow. I’m amazing, and what I’m doing is pretty amazing too.” You have to take what you do quite seriously. It’s your business. It’s your living, and it has to be your passion. If it’s not, and if you are not the best in it, and if you are not your favorite entrepreneur then I think there is something wrong with your business.
