We all know the world has changed dramatically in the 21st century. The opportunities that defined past generations and steered their course through life aren't out there for us anymore. You and I were told we've got to go to college and get a degree if we want a chance at having a good job. But is that still true? Did you know that today, 54% of college graduates regret investing in a degree? Over 70% of Americans detest their jobs, hence the Great Resignation. Yet, 2 out of 3 Americans will never be able to stop working and retire.
Maybe we need to ask ourselves some hard questions, like, are we feeding into a broken system? If so, what can we do about it for ourselves and our children?
Stay tuned because that's where we are going on the next two episodes. Our guest is Jeff Lerner. I don't know if you remember the early 2000's boom, then came 2008 and the Global Economy went into recession. In November of that year, during "the Great Recession," our guest, Jeff Lerner, like many entrepreneurs and leaders, found himself at rock bottom. A former professional piano player, Jeff found himself nursing an injured wrist. Then to make matters worse, his landlord evicted him from his apartment. Could it get worse? Oh yeah! His wife was divorcing him. Jeff struggled with depression and the cherry on top was that he owed creditors almost half a million dollars from a failed restaurant venture.
Today, Jeff is a 3x INC5000 CEO with over $100 million in sales to his name. He is also happily remarried with four beautiful children and physically in the best shape of his life. In 2019, a decade after turning his own life around, he founded ENTRE Institute, the world's first institute of higher learning for entrepreneurs, which is now one of the fastest-growing education-technology companies in the world.
He is also the host of the Unlock Your Potential podcast. Jeff is also the author of the same name, Unlock Your Potential: The Ultimate Guide for Creating Your Dream Life in the Modern World.
