Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Phillip Stutts on the podcast, and he’s a CEO, founder and best-selling author. He has worked in corporate and political marketing with multi-billion dollar budgets and has worked with fortune 200 companies, presidential candidates, and been a contributor for ESPN, CBS, CNN, and much, much more.
Today we talked about what it’s like to be a lost soul and a wantrepreneur, and how ADD can be a superpower. We also covered how businesses and intellectual support, and that success in business can come from a desire to compete with yourself. And it doesn’t always have to mean you’re competing with the other people in your industry.
It can just be about becoming the best version of yourself. And we talked about how in 2022 Phillip’s word for the year is humility and how he has realized the importance of loving himself and how much that will help him grow in his marriage and as a parent and how we shouldn’t numb our feelings.
We should learn to feel our feelings. Finally, we cover how you can still love yourself and learn to grow no matter what your age is. There was so much more in this conversation and I hope it really helps you as you kick off the new year.
