Are you ready to become the go-to thought leader and influencer in your industry? Are you ready to live your legacy right now? If so, today’s episode will show you how! On this episode of the IHML Show, we’re speaking with Mel Abraham, entrepreneur, thought leader and author of the number one best seller, The Entrepreneur’s Solution. As the founder of Thoughtpreneur Academy, Influences Intensive and Business Breakthrough Academy, Mel uses his programs to share his expertise around business practices of impact, distinction and freedom. Although Mel has advised some of the top thought leaders of our time, his career actually began on a more traditional path.
Mel started as a CPA for one of the largest consulting firms in the world. But when he realized he was living someone else’s life and not following his purpose, he quit his job. That was the moment when Mel began to make decisions based on his values, desires and passions. Although he had his fair share of ups and downs on his entrepreneurial journey, Mel learned from his failures and continued to make choices that were in alignment with his higher purpose. He is now a globally recognized thought leader, business advisor, CPA and financial expert, encouraging other entrepreneurs to live their legacy and serve their community now. After this episode, you’ll be ready to fail forward, take action with courage and become the influencer you were born to be.
During this episode we’re going to cover…
- The powerful reason he walked out of his CPA job and never looked back
- Why clarity comes from taking action
- The secret to being be a successful parent AND entrepreneur
- Why work-life balance is a myth and why work-life harmony should be the goal for all entrepreneurs
- The importance of approaching everything you do in business with curiosity and how to learn from failures
- How your legacy is created by what you’re doing right NOW
- How you can apply Mel’s 10 Tenants of Courage (the lessons he learned from his father) to your life
One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:
“Clarity doesn’t come from sitting there and staring at your navel. Clarity comes from taking action. We make a decision, we take an action, certainly, we get more feedback, we get a little more feedback that’s more information, we can make a better decision and get a little more clarity. Clarity comes from moving, not form sitting still.” – Mel Abraham
