Entrepreneurship is about working for yourself not working by yourself.  Throughout my entrepreneur journey I’ve had many ups and downs and pivoted more times than I can count, but I’ve never once lost faith or wanted to give up thanks to the amazing community and leaders that influence me daily.  

We > Me

To build a great WE you must first be the best ME you can be and that requires self-awareness as well as the advice and leadership of a strong core group of honest leaders.  As I analyze the origin of many of my strongest business relationships each person is incredibly unique, the value they each provide me is different, and the steps taken to build the relationships is varied. My most influential relationships range from coworker turned friend to me being a fan of an author then reaching out on Twitter to mutual interests expanding to business partnerships.  
Influence comes in all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds and in this latest episode of FOMOFanz I share the stories of some of those unique relationships highlighting a handful from the 40 leaders listed on my blog link below:
