Murder Fear! How To Master Risk & Win Big

In 2004, I started my first company. A fitness venture I ended selling for $50,000 at 19 years old. It was an interesting time in my life, my parents had just divorced, my Dad was laid off, and my childhood home just sold.

If I didn't win, I had nowhere to go.

Seth Godin is one if my favorite thought leaders. He's always testing new concepts and discovering new patterns for entrepreneurs. Interestingly, in the video below he does just this. What an incredible recipe for success…

If you show me a person who can man-handle risk and murder fear, I'll show you an entrepreneur.

Do you struggle with risk? Are you an entrepreneur, freelancer, or employee? What's stopping you from the next step? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I joined a direct selling company and love the products as well as the culture but I have a hard time randomly talking to someone while I am out or handing them one of our coupons which are a great tool. I just fear rejection – I am trying to not care as much & just be the outgoing person I long for =) Thanks!!

    1. Hey Jessica, I think this is normal. You have to really believe what you’re selling is valuable. That way you would never feel guilty or fearful pitching it. Would you feel guilty pitching pacemakers to people who need pacemakers? Just think about your customer’s needs and be authentic with them. Be you.

    1. Hi Jeremy, I owned an in-home personal training and massage therapy company. Our tagline was The Gym Comes To You. Mostly high-end clients.

  2. Thank you Dale! You really inspire me. I am 19 and I’m about to start my own business. Bless you 🙂

  3. Thanks Dale! I was about to start a business too! A clothing line. But I’m just putting that on the back burner because I’m trying to figure out what major to choose. I really like investments and the idea of entrepreneur but parents keep telling me to get a medical degree because it’s more stable. I was wondering if you could just tell me about entrepreneur and just everything behind that. From “How-to’s” to “experiences.” Because I’m thinking about nursing as a fallback plan.

    1. Hey David, sounds like a tough deal. In my experience, school will always be there. Your chance to start a business won’t. Here is a video I posted recently about college: https://www.thedailypositive.com/7-reason-shouldnt-go-college/ Now, if you’re in the medical field… sure, you need a degree but I would call college your backup plan. If you have the entrepreneur bug just know that only other entrepreneurs will get it. Your parents probably won’t. If you ever want a one-on-one session to think through this over the phone or on skype I offer them for $199.00. Email me if I can be of any help to you. Good luck 🙂
