Would you like to know the six strategies to help you decide ‘if’ you should get out of the rat race, and ‘when’ you should get out of the rat race?
On this week’s episode of Escape The Rat Race Radio, I’m very pleased to welcome an inspirational speaker that turns everyday people into Entrepreneurs, Junior Ogunyemi.
Junior coaches and inspires people to become successful entrepreneurs, and is the Founder of Entrepower - a monthly mastermind in London which brings aspiring Entrepreneurs together to learn from one another without being sold to.
Whilst at university, he was making headlines for launching many successful ventures and became a multi-award winning business starlet. Due to the remarkable social impact of his success story, a publishing company approached Junior to write a book. At age 21 he became the best-selling author of the highly influential book, “How to be a Student Entrepreneur”.
He has worked on government initiatives and advised schools and colleges. His dynamic inspirational messages have helped to pioneer the current “student-entrepreneur” buzz across the UK and Europe, including being invited to give a talk for Tedx. Through his online resources he is now showing people across the globe, simple practical strategies so they can make it happen for themselves.
Our main topic of discussion this week is around knowing that talent and passion alone will not make you rich. You need to learn how to build a business and to think like an Entrepreneur.
In this episode you’ll learn…
‘Don’t just focus on being good at something, focus on being good at something and being good at business as well.’
‘By the time I was going to University, I made it my mission to pay off all the tuition fees. That was my goal. Thankfully I achieved that goal by my second year.’
‘In true Entrepreneurial fashion, I jumped and began to build my wings on the way down’
‘If you’re going to make serious money around your passion, being good at something is not enough. You need to build a business.’
‘I wanted to create a place where Entrepreneurs can come together, share ideas, and also learn without getting sold to’
‘For every successful venture I have created, there is probably about ten failures as well.’
‘I would rather try and fail, but I cannot live with not trying. That would be my biggest regret.’
‘In order to do more, be more and have more, you have to take those risks’
