011 - Bad Habits Of Entrepreneurs
Just as there are good habits that should be added to your routine as an entrepreneur, there are also a few toxic habits that should be controlled. These habits are common to many entrepreneurs, and those who have found success have also found ways to minimize their damage.
Nearly all of these habits originally stem from good intentions, whether it is trying to improve your learning, paying attention to details, or communicating with your team. It’s not necessarily the actions themselves, but the habits we form around them to influence they way we carry out these tasks that derails us as entrepreneurs.
Once we recognize these potential pitfalls, we can apply a strategy to reduce their negative effects on us, and free up our time, energy, and remove the cap on our success potential.

As an entrepreneur, you are responsible for a lot. Whether it is employees, customers, vendors, marketing tasks, sales, strategic planning…

The irony of exercise for entrepreneurs is that, even though it takes time out of your day, in the end you actually get more done in the remaining time that you come out ahead.
This podcast is going to dive into the reasons why entrepreneurs become more successful when they exercise regularly, some simple exercises that you can do during the workday from your office, and a few examples of successful entrepreneurs that share their secrets to keeping fit amidst a hectic workday.
