#EntrepreneurInspiration by @MichaelLuchies


Who are you and what do you do in 30 words or less?

I’m a passionate supporter of entrepreneurship and I seek to promote change, happiness and to disrupt the norm.M.Luchies

How do you remain empowered as an entrepreneur?

Being an empowered entrepreneur is as simple as not accepting unacceptable truths and commonalities in our daily lives and in society. There has never been a time where more opportunities exist, yet we often doubt our abilities and chances to succeed due to a perceived risk. The riskiest course of action in the world we live in is tossing aside your passion to work a 9-5 and fulfilling someone else’s goals and dreams instead of your own.  This is easier said than done, but reminding yourself of what you want to be, the changes in the world you strive to make and what truly makes you happy will help keep you focused in your path and empowered as an entrepreneur.

How do you remain equipped as an entrepreneur, where/how do you fuel your growth?

Growth as an entrepreneur should come from deep within you. As a husband, a father, and an entrepreneur, I have a strong desire to be great, and this inspires me to grow.

If you are struggling to grow your business or yourself, focus on what you love to do and are truly passionate about to get you to the next level. Find others to focus on the aspects that you may not as strong at or like doing as much.

Where does your inspiration come from?

My inspiration has drastically changed over the past decade. We all have to find what motivates us. That used to be a large salary and a stable job. Now my inspiration comes from my family and my network. I am inspired by the work of others and the shape that entrepreneurship is taking around the world. There is a rising trend to benefit others instead of only yourself through profits. This is inspiring to want to change the world in a positive way and make a better life for those around me.

What is your “WHY” —- why do you do what you do?

My why is selfish. I need this for me. I work hard for my family, but I’m not truly happy unless I feel that I can make a substantial difference, which is what I believe I am doing.

What is your #1 tip for other entrepreneurs?

Always be open to learning and to change. We often get so caught up in our ideas and business that we refuse to adapt to changes in technology, our industry, etc. Neglecting changes and opportunities is will lead to falling behind and losing what you worked so hard to build.

Celebrating Entrepreneur Independence

This week marks a very special week in the land of TEW.

Our book which was once a dream and a vision has now expanded into a series. Our mission, somewhat of a movement has grown to over 1,100 fans on facebook and over 1,000 fans 4aTEWon twitter. Our goal remains the same, and that is to “empower, equip and inspire entrepreneurs worldwide.” The authors of the two books not only share with the readers how their path to business ownership began; but, they also include diverse and encouraging personal stories of challenges conquered along with tips and tools that aspiring entrepreneurs can use to accomplish their goals despite facing their own version of these very same obstacles.

The experiences that our writers share concerning how they have overcome and conquered things in the midst of pursuing their passions will motivate all who are moved to turn its pages! We are fulfilling our destiny by allowing real entrepreneurs a platform to share their trials and then their triumphs, ultimately passing on the torch of dreams held by many of owning their own business. After a year and a half long journey of writing and editing, we are so excited for the launch! Join us this July 4th as we celebrate our entrepreneurial freedom online!

P.S. We invite you to answer this question:

In the spirit of independence, what is your favorite part about being an entrepreneur?

 

Have a safe and happy holiday week everyone!

Who are you and what do you do in 30 words or less?

My name is Evan Roberts. I am the President of Empowered People Press, LLC and the author of “How to Become Influential and Highly Successful: The Young Adult Success Manual.” My mission in life is to empower people to live life on their terms. I do this through the empowerment books, workshops, mentoring groups, and seminars that I host.

How do you remain empowered as an entrepreneur?

workbook

My empowerment comes from several places. First, I have a very strong reason or why backing what I do. The freedom to spend as much time as possible with my wife and our son keeps me driven and focused. Second, I am a student of empowerment. Every day, I am listening, reading, and engaging in a book, an audio, a discussion, etc., that further validates the principles that I live by. Third, I believe in the power of God and the power of the human spirit to achieve what it wants. I meditate specifically on what I desire most and I keep that thought in the forefront of my mind in everything that I do.

How do you remain equipped as an entrepreneur, where/how do you fuel your growth?

I remain equipped by constantly learning individually and stretching my limits. I have a personal library with 100’s of books and audios that allow me to sharpen my mental saw daily. I also connect with and learn from others. For example, I recently attended a networking event in Hyde Park. One of the speakers shared some business insights on branding and marketing that I really took to heart. I acted on his information the next day and I’ve experienced positive results since. Last, I remain humble. I know that there is always someone that I can learn from and I don’t have all of the answers. I seek out people who are ahead of where I am for mutual benefit.

Where does your inspiration come from?

My inspiration comes from my wife first and foremost. Our son is a very close second! Having a family and being able to build something meaningful together is very exciting to me. I am also inspired by all of the success stories that I have read over the course of my life. They have served as a personal motivational tool. I would also say that my inspiration is derived from challenging myself from within. I enjoy testing my limits and experiencing the pleasure of accomplishment!

What is your “WHY” —- why do you do what you do?

As I mentioned earlier, my “WHY” has to do with the freedom to enjoy my family with little to no constraints. My “WHY” is also centered on service to people because I believe that if a person is genuinely impacting people’s lives in positive way and serving from the heart, he/she deserves to experience all that life offers. I appreciate the opportunity to empower our youth because of the imprint that can be made and sustained generation to generation. I work with some truly talented young people. They deserve models of excellence that they can use as a blueprint to achieve their goals and dreams.

What is your #1 tip for other entrepreneurs?

My #1 tip for other entrepreneurs is to understand that your success is only going to happen with and through people. To that end, what are you doing each day to enhance your personal effectiveness? How are you improving your networking skills? When do people realize that you are all about win/win?

#EntrepreneurInspiration by TEW – Meet Catrice M. Jackson

Grab a little #EntrepreneurInspiration with Catrice M. Jacksonunnamed

Who are you and what do you do in 30 words or less?

I’m a living soul here to inspire and empower others to liberate their souls, unleash their message and speak it with unapologetic, undeniable, unstoppable confidence on every marketplace platform.

How do you remain empowered as an entrepreneur?

People often ask me how I do it all and my quick response is how do I NOT do it all; meaning that if you have a dream, a vision, a mission, a passion or a calling in life, it’s not going to unfold and just happen – you’ve got to get up, suit up and go get it every day. When you are truly hungry for your dream you will find a way to eat and feed your passion. I’m naturally driven from within and although I have moments of despair and doubt when that dream starts grumbling in my stomach I find creative ways to feed the dream within.

How do you remain equipped as an entrepreneur, where/how do you fuel your growth?

My grandmother used to say “a closed mouth don’t get fed.” I ask for what I need. I seek out creative possibilities and solutions to solve challenges and get help, guidance and support from friends, colleagues and mentors. God gave me a gift and instructed me to use it to transform the world. When I think about this divine privilege I show gratitude for this gift, by being spiritually obedient, walking in my purpose and finding a way when it seems there is none. Specifically I empower my gifts my strengthening, polishing and mastering them. In order to be the best at what I do I must stay inquisitive, creative and innovative.

 Where does your inspiration come from?

Inspiration to me means to be within spirit. When I’m consistently connected to my spirit, my God and my intuition, I receive divine downloads that guide my next steps and big ideas. I’m often inspired by music, when I’m cooking and creating and by other people who refuse to quit, give up on their dreams and those who are excelling in their passion.

What is your “WHY” —- why do you do what you do?

I believe every living person and soul has a uniquely important message within. We are here to share that message to heal, inspire, empower and transform lives and when we don’t share it our soul is unfulfilled and the message dies. Beyond the titles I AM here to help people unlock their message, unleash their voice and speak it and share with authentic confidence. Growing up I didn’t know (and still don’t) my father. Consciously and unconsciously I felt invisible to him. I’ve always been driven from within as a result to never be unseen, unheard, own my power and honor the value of ME. One of my biggest intentions in life is to empower others who feel invisible to do the same. We all are valuable. I wake up every day excited about helping as many people as I can believe they are valuable and what they have to say matters.

What is your #1 tip for other entrepreneurs?

Make the choice to BE unapologetic about who you are, create an authentic, undeniable brand from the inside, work the hell out of it and leverage it to create the life you desire to live. There is NO one like you and when you really realize that you cannot be duplicated you gain the mountain moving mindset that you are irreplaceable. That means having a brand-first mindset, building and growing your business with a brand-based business model and embodying and living your brand with every breath you take. BE and rock the brand of you every day.
