    How to Live your Life with No Regrets with Joshua B Lee

    How to Live your Life with No Regrets with Joshua B Lee

    Joshua, “The Dopamine Dealer of LinkedIn” joins us to give the next generation advice on the value of work and money. Live your life with no regrets.  

    Highlights:
    {02:35} What makes Joshua a Titan
    {08:23} The Dopamine Dealer of LinkedIn
    {16:50} Message to the next generation on the value of work and money
    {31:00} Living with no regrets
    {34:35} Encouragement for others
    {44:00} The importance of connection
    {56:30} Book “Balance is Bullsh*t”

    Joshua B Lee Bio:
    They call me “The Dopamine Dealer of LinkedIn” and I’m proud of that nickname.
    I’m an entrepreneur, business owner, author, coach, marketer, and a very blessed husband and father.
    Way back in 2003 I built my career in online marketing with clients like MySpace and Google with advertising spends of over half a billion dollars, which generated over 35 trillion online impressions for these companies.
    I’ve been lucky enough to build 16 companies in my career from online marketing to coaching to web design and more.
    But that’s not my real passion. My real passion is creating lasting, meaningful, and most importantly HUMAN connections. I’ve created StandOut Authority so I can work with entrepreneurs like you to help you humanize your professional or company brand on LinkedIn using authentic, inspirational engagement with your clients or audience.
    I think it’s one of the most important things anyone can do in their business to truly build long-term and lasting relationships that flourish.
    I genuinely believe there is NO B2B or B2C just Human to human connections, and I want to show you how to do exactly that!
    I also believe there’s no such thing as work-life “balance” only an integrated life built on a foundation of vision, relationships, passion, and business.
