Why Runners Make Great Entrepreneurs
Why runners make great entrepreneurs?
Commitment toward a goal.
Runners are resilient and like to take risks.
Regardless what level you run at you care about yourself.
Business and athletes are very similar in that both require a great deal of patience, focus and commitment.
There are no guarantees with entrepreneurship and the same goes for competitive sport.
You put in the hard work but there is no guarantee of success.
If anything sport has taught me it is the characteristic of tenacity.
To continue regardless of the outcome.
Entrepreneurship, starting your own home based business or any type of business venture requires someone who is either fed up, wants more leverage over their time or their finances.
People want to have more time with their loved ones.
What is the reality?
78 percent of working Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
That is scary.
What Is The Way Out?
Start using the tenacity you have shown all your life on the roads and tracks and point it toward starting a home business.
Do you know how many people let opportunities pass them by simply because they either have been told they are scams or tried and failed and refuse to think otherwise?
I share two such opportunities here on rundreamachieve.
One is world global network (wearable technology) and the other max international.
One I have been with for a year (world gn) and the other over 5.
These are not fly-by-night business opportunities with me.
My readers may be interested in fitness, health and running faster but I can guarantee all of you want to have more time and money.
Money to travel, take care of strangers, friends and family.
Time to do what you want to do and not what someone else forces you to do only because you need a paycheck in order to pay the bills.
This isn't a life.
It is existence.
Runners are great businessmen and women because they know what commitment is.
They don't run and hide when problems occur.
They don't give up when they run into a road block.
They're goal-oriented, self-starters.

How can so many bright, highly educated leaders in this country and around the world be hurting so badly financially?
Could it be too many have been taught to rely on one source of income and have 10 to 20 bills that need to be paid?
Trading life for a paycheck i.e. linear income, is not where leverage is found.
Leverage is found getting paid while you sleep rather than having to fight traffic to and from work on a daily basis.
You may love or hate what you do for a living.
One reality remains the same.
The only way you are paid is by the work you do and if you keep showing up to punch the clock.
What if you couldn't work and didn't have a paycheck?
Runners are going to find out how and they are going to think in very unique, creative ways in order to produce more income, residually.
Residual income continues to come in whether you work hard or not.
You can be taking a dump and getting paid, traveling, sleeping, playing with your kids and therein lies the difference.
Linear income is the worst form of income in that it comes at a heavy price, ones life – Bob Proctor, entrepreneur
Leverage simply means doing more with less.
Can you do the same amount of work as 50 people in a 24-hour period?
I am sure you have had days where you feel you did that much work in an 8-hour period right?
Leverage doesn't exist if you have to keep showing up somewhere to warm a seat for 8-12 hours a day for a highly taxed paycheck.
Are you spending any time during your day as an athlete thinking about ways to grow your cash flow?
I'm talking about increasing your revenue streams?
You already have the chops to succeed as an entrepreneur as an athlete.
How do I know?
The fact that you are getting out the door to take care of yourself takes commitment and that is what you must have in order to be an entrepreneur.
Low Start Up Costs
How much does one need in order to start most brick and mortar businesses here in America?
Anywhere from $20,000 to several hundred thousand depending on what you have in mind.
If you want to open a McDonalds it will set you back around $1.2 million.
How much capital do you need to become a Herbalife associate?
I've been with Herbalife now for over 2 years and not once in those 2 years have they ever been late sending me commission payments.
Every week I receive payment notifications for having worked my butt off once.
All you did was make a one-time investment.
These are health and fitness related home based business opportunities that don't cost a lot to get involved with.
What do most people do?
Walk or run right by them.
There is a major difference between the two.
All over this site you will see helpful posts and information about this.
How many take action?
This is natural and normal.
Most folks have been trained to trade life for a paycheck and there is nothing wrong with it.
You can surely make money this way but once you catch a taste of what residual income is life your DNA changes.
As an athlete Herbalife and world global network appealed to me.
Runners are hungry for a challenge, at least the majority of the athletes I have worked with and been coached by.
You don't have to be like the world-class athletes I have trained and lived with.
Everyone, regardless of athletic ability, can succeed in these forms of businesses.
What is the difference between Joe who makes $150,000 per year but has to show up every day for 8-12 hours per day and Jill who makes $30,000 per month and works about 2 hours or less per day.
Jill is using leverage and has chosen to start a home based business despite what the masses say.
Did Jill have to work hard?
Absolutely but she grew a team and because of that team and the teams her team built people are working
Jill will continue to get paid whether she works or not because of that leverage.
Leverage not found in a job where you absolutely must keep showing up to get paid and only get paid for the work you do.
You don't get paid for the work other people do.
Joe will have to answer to someone else, will be told when he can take his lunch and can go home.
Sure, he has a sweet salary but it is dependent on if his employer keeps him on board, he doesn't get sick and most importantly, if he keep showing up.
So, that being said, and having once been a skeptic of multi-level marketing or network marketing companies, I can never again be what I once was, ignorant.
Our life, health and time is too precious not to leverage it.
How can anyone get by on one source of income (a paycheck) and have mouths to feed, 5 to 30 bills to pay?
These are the hard facts and many people are relying on that one source of income.
The facts are too many highly educated, driven, focused men and women around the world are allowing someone else to dictate how their day is to be spent.
This can change for the better.
Athletes have specific traits that are needed to be great entrepreneurs.
You can still work the job you love or hate and build your fortune.
Unlimited amounts of money.
Limited time so we as runners (and non-runners alike) have to start seeking how we can leverage our time and finances.
Take a look at either of these two health-related home based business opportunities.
Perhaps you'll find in them what I did and 5 years from now you, too, will be earning residual income streams from something you, at one time in your life, would have passed up but didn't.
Small start fees. Unlimited growth potential, no resume or college degree needed.
The beauty of this business model is that it doesn't require you to have an MBA or 20 years of corporate experience.
There are high school drop outs making 6 figures in a month and there are trained Physicians with 6-figures in debt working 14 hours a day because they have to pay that debt off.
Great profession but also requires a lot of time and energy.
Everyone is different and this article isn't written to degrade employees.
Some of the most successful entrepreneurs were first employees.
Some of the highest earners in this business model still work jobs they love.
It is simply an article to discuss specific ways to leverage ones time, energy and finances that most people are ignoring.
Make anywhere from a few extra hundred dollars per month to several hundred thousand.
Why runners make great entrepreneurs stems from the fact we know what it takes to accomplish a goal.
Results vary and it depends on how determined and persistent you want to be with thisLEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TRAINING PLANS
