Ep.175 ~ Roasting The Entrepreneur Life ~ JP Sears

March 3, 2017

JP has been called the honey badger of the spiritual kingdom and is the creator of the popular YouTube channel ‘Awaken with JP.’ Not only that, JP is a spiritual guru, international teacher emotional healing coach, entrepreneur, and the author of his new book ‘How to be Ultra Spiritual.”

I wanted to bring JP on the Podcast after seeing his video ‘The Entrepreneur Life’. In JP’s terms “The entrepreneur life is a hard life of hustle, scaling, creating apps, starting startups, telling people that you're hustling, and pretending to be a billionaire. It's a lot of hard work, but it's a glorious life where you're a rock star of the business world who does things on your terms.”

I personally couldn’t agree more, so here to talk about his new book and ‘The Entrepreneur Life’ is the honey badger of the spiritual kingdom, JP Sears!

“I think that the best form of spirituality is the religion called ‘Entrepreneurship,” JP Sears

“If you’re not scaling something, then get the hell out of my life. Why are you wasting my time.” JP Sears

“If we don’t spend time with any other person, they can’t bring us down.” JP Sears

“The only thing better than our listeners hustling, is them watching us hustle. Why? Because we can’t monetize their hustle, we can monetize our hustle through them watching our hustling.” JP Sears

“The best way to become a leader is to get your followers, to follow you.” JP Sears
