We are going to revisit one of our most downloaded episodes with my good friend Mark Titcomb of Floor Coverings International. In this episode, Mark talks about starting enterprises out of passion, the mindset game of entrepreneurship, and his transition from the franchisor to the business owner, which helped him create opportunities for his family. Why would you put so much effort into creating someone else if you are a driven individual with particular traits? Mark’s experience demonstrates the importance of beginning to give your dreams the chance they require. 

In this episode you will learn: 

  • Fear is what prevents people from operating their own enterprises 
  • Describe the “why” for your goal 
  • Who is a suitable fit for FCI? 
  • The leading cause of failure for businesses 
  • Stop asking ‘why?’ and start asking ‘why not?’ 
  • and so much more!
