Grab a little #EntrepreneurInspiration with Evan Roberts
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?
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?
