Jason Bliss – Entrepreneur For Life
Jason talks about his first experiences with entrepreneurship, how his parents contributed to the desire to start his own ventures, his pursuit of education and his views on the traditional route of “getting an MBA.” He shares how his son was the catalyst for starting The Healthy Living Network and what it took to build, scale and eventually sell. This episode also dives into the environmental factors that contribute to “entrepreneurial spirit”.
You can come from a divorced family. You can come from a place of no money. You can come from some really chaotic backgrounds and still find happiness and success in your life, whatever you define them to be.
We realize we’ve had a talent in creating entrepreneurs, not just investing in people’s ideas (in their mind they already see themselves as entrepreneurs) but convincing people that are amazing at what they’re already doing and that they too could own their own company someday… that they too could take something that they’ve been holding on to or thinking about for a while and tweaking it into something that would be distinct.
“Be the best YOU”
There are some wonderful things that we’ve accomplished in our lives that some people would take two or three lifetimes, and there are some things in our life that we need to change, there are things in our life that money doesn’t alter. There are things in our life that we realize if we could tweak just slightly – we could be even greater instruments in giving time and energy to the next generation of entrepreneurs…. If you have faith you focus on your faith, focus on being the best person you can be and love the people around you. I’m doing that right now but I think that we’re trying to find ways to reach and expand groups that don’t feel loved that don’t feel like they have opportunities that don’t think that things in their life will change.
