the-hot-seat-224x300To be PROUDLY unemployable: it’s what you and everyone listening wants, it’s why you’re here. You are standing at the precipice of launching your side gig, the gig that you’re supposed to be doing. How do make the leap?

Today on episode 211 we’re talking about how to make that leap, what you’re afraid of and how to get past it with super successful entrepreneur, Dr. Paul Anderson and budding entrepreneur Jessica Shanaan. Join us for all of that and more on today’s live in-studio edition of The Solopreneur Hour.

More About This Show

This is a really special, and really insightful episode.  One one hand, we have Jessica Shaanan, who’s been completely bitten by the entrepreneurial bug.  On the other hand, we’ve got the ultra-entrepreneur, Dr. Paul Anderson.

Jessica is where many of you are right now and where every solopreneur has been: she’s getting started. She knows what she loves to do and what she’s good at. Now she’s in the process of narrowing that down and finding her swing. On this episode Dr. Paul and I talk about how to apply her talents and skills to make the leap from a day job to being unemployable.

For those of you who haven’t heard Dr. Paul’s previous visits to the show, find them here. He’s an extremely successful and innovative man who creates natural products for the health and wellness world. He’s also very knowledgable on what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur.

More About This Show:

  • What’s the ultimate secret?
  • Do we really only use 10% of our brain?
  • Dr. Paul shares the two things we need for entrepreneurial success.
  • What percentage of information in the health and wellness world is accurate?
  • The reward system to use when working at home.
  • And SO much more!



The two things Dr. Paul says we all need for solopreneur success are true knowledge and proper marketing/packaging. True and accurate knowledge is rare, most people are wrong about most things (especially in the health industry). Know the basics of what you’re doing and what you are offering to the world and you’ll be miles ahead in your industry.

He also has discovered that finding your mission is of utmost importance. Those who makes the greatest impact in the world, in whatever field they are in, are those who have found their mission. The vehicle they use to share that mission is secondary to the actual mission itself. So if you want to make the world a healthier place, like Jessica does, that is your mission. How that mission reaches the world becomes your vehicle, but it isn’t as important as the actual mission is.

If you’re still finding your mission and finding your way you can also take what you know and start a business. We touched on this in episode 205 with Jill and Josh Stanton, and we revisit it on today’s episode. If you actually like what you do and there’s a need for it in the world take your talents and skills and become a consultant. Find a way to offer your services on your own terms with your own business.

Another important point made in this episode is you’ll never know everything and you’ll never be completely prepared to make the solopreneur leap. At a certain point you simply have to know it isn’t perfect but jump anyway. Be open, ask questions and go for it. You’re going to learn so much along the way so just get started.

We go into greater detail on all of these topics, and much more on this episode. This was a terrific show for all of the beginning solopreneurs, I’m so happy to share it with all of you! Please join me in thanking Dr. Paul and Jessica for being here. And thanks to all of you for listening, we’ll see you next time.
