    Hey Richard,

    Loving this post of yours, being an entrepreneur is fun and challenging but after some time you’ll tend to lose sight of your goal and so having short injections of motivation like this comes in handy for me 😀

    Anyone can build a business but I think Shopify made a pretty good move of inciting energy through competition. I’ma bit unclear on one of the requirement part though, what’s a privately help business?

    1. Richard U. Post author

      Yes indeed you are right. we tend to loose sight of greater things ahead sometime due to too many distractions and shiny objects. I am glad I could help refocus you perspectives in this regards.

      Privately help in this context means every start up business under private ownership, sole trader status or intermediate which is doing very well already.

      The focus here I believe is to help well doing entrepreneurs make more millions become more successful.

      Hope this helps?

I haven’t had a product yet, but I’ll keep this in mind, I love the idea of having mentors and some of those names are huge like Tim Ferris and Marie Forleo, I’ve always been a big fan of them.
