“A core principle of my own life, and upon which this company was founded, is that one should leave everything and everyone better than you found them.”
Jordan Harbinger has always had an affinity for social influence, interpersonal dynamics, and social engineering, helping private companies test the security of their communications systems and working with law enforcement agencies before he was even old enough to drive.
Forbes named him one of the 50 best relationship-builders anywhere and Inc. Magazine calls him “the Charlie Rose of Podcasting.”
Jordan has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks five languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped — twice. The only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
I recently came across some statistics that got my attention . . .
In order to gain a deeper understanding of the motivations and desires of entrepreneurs, Amway conducted the Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report where they researched key drivers and behaviors of entrepreneurs.
This year they focused on the “entrepreneurial spirit” (see why this got my attention!) and surveyed of 50,000 people across the globe.
They discovered all kinds of interesting things but the three things that stood out to me the most were:
Female respondents are less willing to start a business compared to male respondents because they feel less likely to be supported by those close to them
As age increased, respondents are less inclined to becoming self-employed
70% of respondents said FEAR of failure was the #1 obstacle to becoming an entrepreneur (even if they wanted to be one)
Okay, this is NOT okay – check out my rant and huge dose of encouragement if you fall into one of the above categories in my vlog.
I do not have children of my own (yet) but this week I feel like a proud parent! You see this past weekend I got to witness 12 extraordinary people embody their unique mission and create kickass results!!!
Who are these people? They are the courageous souls who said YES to their unique purpose by enrolling in Secret Sauce, my six-month business training and mastermind program.
We are only 3 months through our half-year journey and the internal and external shifts people have created are seriously blowing my mind.
Rather than read my words about the program, I wanted you to hear directly from the people who are actually experiencing Secret Sauce and give you the opportunity to apply now for 2017. Imagine that next year at this time, it is your quote about your success that I’m sharing!
