3 Key Points from This Episode:

  1. Use the experiences you have doing what you hate to help you figure out what you love.
  2. Work-life balance isn’t necessarily a number. But rather, you are in balance if you love the person you can be and are at work, and you love the person you can be and are at home. If you don’t love the person you are in one of those places, then you’re out of balance.
  3. Any good entrepreneur has a business that solves a human need. To do that, you have to connect with other human beings to see what issues are out there that need solving.
