Shockingly so—in fact, for 10 years of my life, I started business after business.
I’d get a web domain and a business card and tell my family about my latest half-baked idea over a Thanksgiving turkey. They’d nod their heads politely, and ask me to pass the salt.
Today, I still start businesses. But now, I’m actually creating successful, profit-producing businesses. I’ve written New York Times Bestselling books, spoken at conferences across the world, and started multiple online businesses that provide for my family.
What made the difference?
Did I just magically start having better ideas?
Did I learn how to survive on 30 minutes of sleep and a protein bar every day?
Or did I just get lucky?
