How to Start A Business Without A Passion (FS314)

Are you a lifestyle entrepreneur or
hoping to become one? How do you build a career that gives you a greater degree
of personal freedom and independence so that you can spend your time living the
life you want, doing the stuff that makes you happy? On the Fizzle Show we
always steer you toward earning a living from doing something that you actually
care about, or at the very least, not doing a job you hate!

In this episode, we get into the
intricacies of entrepreneurship, and we’re not interested in what worked
yesterday; we are more concerned about what works today — for you. Whether it’s
watching Netflix or hanging out with friends, are you digging your life right
now? Whatever you are into, you probably need some skrilla to finance it and
you need to be doing something sustainable so that you don’t run out.

Today on the show we are joined by
Ramit Sethi, personal finance advisor and entrepreneur, and together we pull
apart the nucleus of the problem for a lot of Fizzlers — obsessing over
questions like, “Am I doing enough?”, “Am I making enough?” and “Am I stupid?”
And that constant voice-in-your-head stuff about money.

We also cut to the chase about what
it is that makes people successful, defining what winning at life looks like
for you and focusing on the lifestyle you want in addition to doing what you
are passionate about. Ramit talks Steve Jobs, his spending philosophy and why
you deserve to be compensated if you provide value to the world.

There is so much game going around this episode, make sure that you don’t miss out!
