This Sunday morning I woke feeling energized after a great session last night of coding and as per usual i was in a quandary. What to do? Where to start? I was in a stymie, wasting time watching facebook, checking whatsapp, watching tv… I had options but my procrastinating tendencies always get the best of me, then i decided let me just choose at random a podcast from Entrepreneur on fire. Im glad i did cause as Jon Dumas asked if I was fired up, i just felt ready to go.
Well enough of this build up time to get into it, the interview i chose was with Aaron Walker who is a Entrepreneur Coach for Men.
