How to Create Your Own Opportunities

Do you think you have to do something terrifying in order to make a big career change?

Are you bored because you’re settling for the opportunities that come to you?

And what would it be like if you knew how to create your own damn opportunities?

Mike Kelly is the founder of Member Vault and a coaching client of mine. Today he’s going to discuss his path from 9 to 5 job, to starting his own company while traveling the country with his wife and son.

In this interview:

  • Changing jobs
  • Making excuses vs doing whatever it takes
  • “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I be happy in my current job?”
  • Hiding out professionally
  • The power of enthusiasm vs experience


  • The illusion of “terror” in our minds
  • The ability to have ballsy conversations
  • Mindset – playing small, avoiding rejection
  • Expecting our passion to be easy
  • The need to stop taking things personally
