2:06 - [Joe] I love to mojovate entrepreneurs! I love helping entrepreneurs go from frustration to mojovation.
2:36 - [Ari] How did you come up with this whole concept of #mojovation?
4:50 - [Ari] How do you define success, you personally?
6:14 - [Joe] So for me it's a lot about awareness. Step number one is awareness. Step number two is having the right plan, the right strategy. Step number three is having accountability, the discipline, the persistence, the ability to just keep going.
7:07 - [Joe] And now I coach other entrepreneurs through The Breakthrough Maze podcast, and just in general I take them through my three step process.
8:05 - [Joe] Every single day I prepare for my day with determination. Like today I woke up at 4am and did my rituals.
9:22 - [Joe] I love helping entrepreneurs go from frustration to mojovation, that's what I love doing. I love helping entrepreneurs go from frustration to mojovation, that's my number one passion. What are some other things I like doing?
11:07 - [Joe] Your beliefs are what drive whether you take action, and action produces results.
12:54 - [Joe] I come up with my little raps that I do....[hear Joe's LinkedIn rap].
15:53 - [Joe] For example, if I ask you what you do (Joe proceeds to give an example of LinkedIn strategy, using Ari as an example; includes Joe calling Ari out for not being very active on LinkedIn, back in December 2018).
19:56 - [Ari] What are some of your biggest lessons you've learned from failed or abandoned projects?
21:30 - [Joe] And there is a difference between failure and defeat.
24:20 - [Joe] So you need to cultivate a feeling of gratitude for every feeling, and then you got to figure out, what does this mean? Why am I feeling this? What do I need to change?
28:36 - [Ari] What's a recent success that you've had?
30:00 - [Joe] I want to help 1000 hungry entrepreneurs....if you want to help 1,000,000 people you have to help 1000 first.
