100 Interviews with 100 Location Independent Entrepreneurs That Have Over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue
I am continually inspired by entrepreneurs that push the limits of what is possible to follow through with their dreams of finding their own definition of success. Today's guest is Rob Barry and during the interview, he shares with us how he went from being unemployed with $4680 left to his name, to 7-figure location independent entrepreneur. It just goes to show the process of entrepreneurship is one that many times requires a period of ‘volunteer poverty’ and a sincere drive to make things happen.
Rob goes into the details about his experience mentioning a huge mistake that actually paid off big. He also addresses why he took a period away from location independence so he could focus on the growth of his business which led to another level of location independence. Lastly, Rob shares about life after selling his business and a few things that people need to be sufficiently happy.
“A lot of times I find in life, the truly valuable people to know, are the ones who don’t want everyone to know that they’re truly valuable to know.” Rob Barry
