Evolution of an Entrepreneur: Salesperson to Manager to CEO
If you want a major shift in your personal finances as a salesperson, the evolution of an entrepreneur must occur. I’ve run into so many people that are trapped as a salesperson, yet think they own a business. They don’t. Just like any species and life form, entrepreneurs must evolve if they want a business.
How does one evolve from a salesperson to a manager to a business owner to a CEO?
Meet my friends Annel Veronica Lopez Cuevas & Javier Castro.
Annel was a financial planner for 12 years and translated the book Missed Fortune 101 into Spanish. Javier is an Operation: Restore Hope Marine Corps Veteran…stormed the beaches and bit the dirt with me in Somalia, Africa.
(I discovered that Javier Castro and I served in the 15th MEU (Special Operations Capable) aboard the USS Tripoli back in the day when I co-hosted PHP University in Orlando. Check out episode 8 “Freedom Requires Sacrifice”.)
