… it’s really important as an entrepreneur, that you are able to navigate through your own energy, focus, attention, willpower. This is crucial for people who are entrepreneurs and want to learn how to manage themselves before they are able to manage their world, their gift, or what they are good at.

Today I am speaking with Filip Van Houte, who is a business-performance coach and also my former coach.
This interview was recorded a few years ago in a nice bar in Budapest that’s why you will hear all the background sounds but I believe it just adds to the atmosphere.
The reason behind this episode is to help all the busy people, entrepreneurs, and business owners, who often struggle with balancing their personal life, working out, and business.
We discussed topics such as finding your audience, how to better communicate with your audience, transitioning from a 9-5 job to entrepreneurship, and finding balance in life so you don’t burn out.

Points and topics discussed in the interview:

  • 2:00 Marketing and connection
  • 6:30 Tailoring your target audience and social platform to your personality
  • 11:00 Navigating through the noise of information & taking action
  • 15:00 Figuring out what you want to do – The best way to figure out what you want to do is to go out and try things. That way you will find out what you like, and dislike, and you will probably find things that you enjoy, that you’d never thought about.

  • 23:45 Making a calculated jump from “9 to 5” job to a full-time entrepreneur
