In this episode of Behind the Grind, Brian and I talk about losing faith in entrepreneurship.
It is a challenge that has clearly been hanging over him for a while, and as we talk through it more and more, we look to develop a framework for finding the roots of the problem… and a path forward.
As you will see, there are a few key areas of support that Brian looks to when assessing himself as an entrepreneur and entrepreneurship as “the” vehicle for his work.
It’s an important discussion, and one we hope will help others better understand how to better plan, manage, and assess their own work.
