Following Your Passion is Hard as Hell — Dr. Eric Goodman, Foundation Training on The New Man Podcast
Do you think the folks you’ve put on a pedestal ever deal with chaos or failure?
And do you believe that once you find your passion that building a business around it should be easy?
My friend Dr. Eric Goodman is the creator of Foundation Training. He’s built a global movement by empowering people to overcome back pain. But like many passion-driven businesses, behind the scenes it’s been extremely challenging. Today we’re going to talk about growth, failure, chaos, and the fantasy that building a business around your passion should somehow be a cakewalk.
In this interview:
- Drive, competition, and the need to prove
- Business owners playing the victim vs leading
- Loving what you do and then learning how to do business
- “My reluctance to business is my reluctance to growing up.”
- Giving himself away to so many others
- Surviving chaos
- Learning to say “no”
- How can you tell if you’re out of balance?
- Why fun and play is a form of medicine
