If you need some major motivation and inspiration, this is the episode for you. I interview the amazing Dr. Willie Jolley, an award-winning motivational speaker, Sirius XM radio host and author, about how he went from unemployed lounge singer to successful businessman.
Willie’s story is a story I think we can all relate to. He thought he had it made as a singer, and was living a very comfortable life. But one day his boss said they needed to make some cuts — and one of the cuts was him. Not only that, but he was replaced by a karaoke machine.
Instead of wallowing in despair or throwing his hands in the air and giving up, he did the opposite. He made it his mission in life to turn his setbacks into comebacks (and eventually greenbacks), and now Dr. Willie Jolley has a thriving career motivating others to do the same.
I’m including a number of links below to things Willie and I talked about in this episode, but I also want to include the 7 keys to success that he talks about more in-depth in his latest book Turn Setbacks into Greenbacks. You will definitely want to check out his books and his speeches on YouTube, but here’s a little something to get you started on your journey to a better and more prosperous you!
- Don’t panic.
- Don’t willingly participate nor commiserate in the gloom and doom.
- Don’t let your pride poison your prosperity.
- Don’t stop thinking about the power and possibilities of tomorrow.
- Be proactive.
- Be creative.
- Be prayerful.
