February 9, 2017 Ep. 159 ~ The Anti-Entrepreneur ~ Steven Moody

“It (Steven’s agency) was a body shop. It was trading other people's time for dollars. Hoping I could do that fast enough so I wouldn’t have to trade my own time for dollars. At the end of the day, it was the same trade.” Steven Moody On this episode, we are happy to introduce whom I call The Anti-Entrepreneur, Steven Moody. Steven built a marketing agency in Vietnam and after a while, he began to realize that something was terribly wrong. He realized that he was trying to fit into an entrepreneurial box and that he didn’t belong in. He also began to realize the traditional role as an entrepreneur was just not for him. So he closed the doors on his business and experienced a sense of freedom. He now focuses on freelancing and self-employment and enjoys this much better. Today we will dig into Stevens struggle as the ‘typical’ entrepreneur and why he chose out. “I see entrepreneurship as a vehicle, but it has become an identity for many people. And I try to limit my identities.” Steven Moody Outtakes: 34:45 -100 True Customers -10 True Clients -1 True Boss “There is no idea that I care about so much, that I want to lose myself for it.” Steven Moody Honorable Mentions: ‘Stumbling on Happiness’ Daniel Gilbert Socionics Personally Test http://www.sociotype.com/ ‘The Millionaire Fastlane’ MJ DeMarco http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18872437-the-millionaire-fastlane ‘One Billion Digital Nomads’ Pieter Levels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IYOZ6H0UNk Hashtag Nomads https://nomadlist.com/ Michael Moore https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Moore “You should never start a business unless someone asks you to.” Derek Sivers https://sivers.org/ Contact Info: http://beachhead.io beachhead.io/newsletter
