Jason Zook – is not your typical entrepreneur. He strives on producing innovative ideas that most people would think, “there’s no way that would work!” and he has been highly successful because of it. His most recent project? He’s selling his future. And yes, I bought it. If you’re interested about how someone could sell their future, I encourage you to listen in. Buckle up because your about to enter the world of Jason Zook.
On today’s episode we talk about:
Getting out of comfort zones
What Jason became an entrepreneur: Sitting at corporate desk job after 2 & 1/2 years, he picked up Set Godin’s book “The Purple Cow” and realized he was meant for more than a 9-5 desk job. He quickly went to work with a friend crafting a plan for six months that would change his life forever.
Things to pay attention to in this episode:
A life changing lunch over a burger
He is on his sixth last name
Learn to love the fear of taking action. The fear will continue to be easier to handle the more you take action. Do something consistently for thirty days. Showing up consistently breeds confidence.
More of Jason’s thoughts:
“nothing I’ve done in business is as scary as walking into a high school cafeteria 4 times over”
“I should be creating these crazy ideas, doing these interesting things, and putting them into the world”
“You see the dividends as you start putting things out consistently, that’s where all the confidence comes from”
