“Your hard work puts you where your blessings can find you.” Today’s guest has an incredible story of making this phrase his reality. If you’ve ever struggled with finding your path to success, you’ll appreciate this episode.

From broke jazz musician to $100 million in online sales… Jeff Lerner’s story and message are now inspiring millions. After a decade of building multiple online businesses to over 8 figures and twice landing on the INC 5000 Jeff turned his focus to educating and inspiring entrepreneurs about the power of entrepreneurship in the modern economy. In 2018 he founded ENTRE Institute where over 50,000 students are developing their ENTREpreneurial skills. He is now regarded as one of the most inspirational voices online in business and personal development.

Jeff’s interest in entrepreneurship began in his 20s when as a pianist he was often hired to play in the homes of successful CEOs and business owners. In 2008, at age 29, after multiple failed ventures, including a restaurant franchise that left him with a half million dollars in debt, he found his first success online and paid off the debt in 18 months.

He currently maintains an active schedule of speaking events and media appearances while working day-to-day as ENTRE’s CEO, hosting the popular “Unlock Your Potential” podcast and YouTube show, and working on his first full-length book. He is married, an active father to 4 children, and still enjoys playing the piano as often as possible.

In this episode, we talk about how to shift your mindset and your skills to create entrepreneurial success, the power of certainty and dedication, and what the road to success really looks like.
