Your job is never 100% secure, and this is why you need to learn how to think like an entrepreneur—no matter what career you are currently in. Steve Rozenberg comes on the show to talk about how he was forced to do this when he lost his job as a pilot back in 2001. As he reflects on this critical moment in his life, he wishes that he would have adopted this entrepreneurial mindset sooner. Losing his job was extremely difficult, but he gained the opportunity to invest in real estate and build a successful business. He is committed to helping others control their destinies and build wealth, and provides useful tips for adopting entrepreneurial skills and strategies.
-Steve Rozenberg was a pilot for a major airline for a long time, and was laid off after 9/11. This was a humbling moment for him, because he was solely focused on being a pilot up until this point
-Even if you think your job is safe and secure, it is important to remember that your position could be affected at any point.
-If you’re an employee, you still need to think like an entrepreneur.
-How do you get secure workers to think like entrepreneurs?
-Steve’s decision to invest in real estate was motivated by getting laid off; he was in survival mode. It’s difficult to have this mindset until you have a reality check
-Motivation is like a battery. It drains over time, and your “why” is what will carry you through—even as you use your battery.
-Taking action is the only thing that will propel you forward. Even as you encounter failures along the way, having a solid vision and reason for your action will allow you to keep going
-Act as if a disaster is going to happen tomorrow, and start making changes now
-Steve is still a pilot now, but he does it because he loves it—not because he needs to do it
-The more you can put yourself in uncomfortable positions, these things won’t be a shock when they actually happen
-In order to get to the next level in life, you must do something different
-Surround yourself with people that have different patterns, or have already achieved goals that you are working towards
-Create a date for when your business could run without you, or be a sellable asset
