Philip Taylor “PT”, Low-Cost Business, & Finding your Passion – ES048

philip-taylorYou’re stuck looking for your business passion, aren’t you? You’re probably using it as an excuse to not get started as well, right? We’ve had that issue as well.  Never fear, we discuss an excellent piece from expert Stephanie Sammons on finding your business passion; however, Dan seems to have questions about some of her thoughts, what do you think?

For Round 2 we discuss a post by fellow-Texan buddy, Philip Taylor aka PT Money on starting a business with little to no money.  Do you need a bunch of funding to get started and is the barrier to entry for online ventures getting worse? We discuss that and more before we bring on PT.

PT hits up the Main Event and ready to make it rain! Our first fellow CPA on the show!

  • Is building a lifestyle the key to finding your passion?
  • Why Venture Capitalists hinder you from starting businesses.
  • A Physical business could be better than an online venture.
  • What did PT have to outsource because he felt others could do it better? Do you have that courage?
  • Do you need to be extroverted to succeed?

BONUS:  PT joins our buddy Jared Easely over at Starve the Doubts and hear some of the wacky answers but also the wisdom you won’t hear here 😀

    Howdy Guys, I listened to the show and appreciate your comments. This article you refer to that I wrote offers insights from my own personal journey in the working world for over 20 years.

    When you get to be my age (44), your perspective changes :)…at least mine did. You don’t have as much tolerance for undesirable work environments, less time with your family or for your hobbies/interests, and even working with people you don’t like (clients or employees).

    And…things do change. I was completely gung-ho, passionate, and crazy about being a financial advisor for many years. Most likely as excited as you all are about your “podcast movement”. Over time, the financial industry changed dramatically…and I lost that passion.

    After I lost that passion, it became super important to me the 2nd time around (and this time as an entrepreneur) to be more deliberate and intentional about how I built the lifestyle, work, and people design.

    Stephanie

    Loved being on the show, gents. I’m embarrassed you had to dig into my archives to find a post worthy of discussing, but hopefully it was good motivation for some folks on the edge of starting something. Enjoyed the conversation.
