There is a common thread with all successful entrepreneurs and that is the importance of investing in both your business and personal growth. So each week we also share with you titles of books that either these entrepreneurs have written or suggested that you read.
1. Marcus Schwan is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and the founder of Retirement & Long-Term Care Entertainment. Aiming to redefine Retirement Entertainment, Marcus provides top quality musical entertainment through interactive, engaging and uplifting songs. Gone are the days of just listening, with music by Marcus, you become part of the performance.
2. Matt Miller teaches professionals how to build secondary income streams with vending. He spent the first 9 years of his career as an Air Force pilot, before entering in the private sector to work in both the medical device and advertising industries. While a top performer in the corporate world, his long-term desire was to be his own boss. A good friend one day mentioned the gumball machines he and his young daughters owned, and that conversation began a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt’s company, School Spirit Vending, to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries. Today, School Spirit Vending’s franchising program provides a proven and profitable business system for busy professionals and their families looking to develop secondary income streams with a limited time commitment.
3. Michelle Schroeder-Gardner is a full-time blogger and financial expert at Makingsenseofcents.com. She currently earns over $100,000 a month from her blog, and it all started as a side hustle. She sold her house in 2015 and has been traveling full-time since.
4. Marie White was born to write, but it would take one horrific event to send her into full-time writing. When her youngest child was abducted, the world felt upside down. Grieving with her husband and older children, she wondered how God could allow this to happen. Yet in the sea of pain, her family witnessed God’s unending love and purpose. She began praying for God to show her what to do with her life. His answer to her prayer was a podcast announcement that missionaries were needed. Marie trained and became a missionary with Global Media Outreach. Within the first few months, she had spoken with over 300 converts to Christianity in countries all over the world. She is the author of Changing Your Life in Just Ten Days, Ten Day Bible Study and Strength for Parents of Missing Children.
5. Alex Mehr is the founder and CEO of MentorBox.com. He is the founder of Zoosk and prior to that he was an aerospace scientist at NASA.
These entrepreneurs shared the same advice when asked – If you could ask your “younger self” one piece of advice what would that be?
ANSWER: Start a business earlier. If you are not in the marketplace then you are not closer to the success where you want to be.
