The Importance of Entrepreneurs, The Entrepreneurial Personality Type, and Why There’s Nothing Wrong With You with Alex Charfen [PODCAST 77]



The importance of entrepreneurs can’t be overstated.


Alex Charfen, today’s guest, firmly believes that Entrepreneurs are critical for growth, momentum, and the economy. As he looks back at the founding of the United States he sees that all but one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was an entrepreneur. That means the nation was based on the spirit and mentality of the entrepreneur.

You’ll likely recognize the importance of Entrepreneurs and the power of “The Entrepreneurial Personality Type” as we discuss Alex’s new book and why you need to know there is nothing wrong with you.

In fact, if you’ve ever thought you were different, or that you were a little awkward, or felt like a misfit, or unique, then you just might have a new sense of confidence after hearing what Alex has to share with you.

Every successful entrepreneur has built ritual(s) and structure into their lives.

Entrepreneurs are acutely sensitive to pressure and noise in the world. As a high achieving entrepreneur, you can eliminate pressure and noise by using rituals and structure so you can simplify and leverage your time and energy.
