    Lessons For Hannah - Desire

    Lessons For Hannah - Desire

    Many years ago, I introduced a new format that alongside our regular episodes called “Lessons for Hannah.” Hannah is my daughter and one of the main inspirations for the Misfit Entrepreneur. I wanted to have a place where she could go and learn from her daddy and his Misfit friends throughout her life….even after I am gone. If you haven’t listened to the first episode of "Lessons for Hannah," I urge you to as it gives some more background and tells the amazing story of how Hannah came to be in our lives.
    Lessons for Hannah are short, very useful, and sometimes comical lessons, that I want to share with you and give to Hannah to help in your lives. Because I want Hannah to have these for her life, I’m going to speak as though I am talking directly to her. These episodes are a lot of fun and if you think there is a lesson that we should include in these episodes, please don’t hesitate to send it over to us at support@misfitentrepreneur.com. We’d love to share it.

    Socks, Smiles, and the Entrepreneurial Spirit; The John's Crazy Socks Story

    Socks, Smiles, and the Entrepreneurial Spirit; The John's Crazy Socks Story

    This week’s Misfit Entrepreneurs are John and Mark Cronin. They are the father-son team that created John’s Crazy Socks, a social enterprise with a mission to spread happiness. They bootstrapped their business into the world’s largest sock store with multi-million dollar revenues and have been named EY’s Entrepreneurs of the Year as well as multiple 30 under 30 awards.
    John is not only a business owner, but he has Down syndrome. John and Mark show what people with differing abilities can do – more than half of their colleagues have differing abilities. They have testified twice before the U.S. Congress and spoken at the United Nations. They are sought after keynote speakers, have recorded two TEDx Talks and are frequent guests on network television including appearances on CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, the Today Show, Fox and Friends, CNBC, PBS, the BBC and others. And they show their gratitude through their Giving Back program that has raised over $650,000 for their charity partners.
    John and Mark show us that anything is possible if you if you are determined enough and I’m excited to discuss their journey of building a 7-figure company along with the many other lessons we can learn from them.
