Neil Eneix, interviewed by John Golden, explores entrepreneurship in this expert sales interview.
This expert sales interview discusses:
- The importance of rising to the challenge
- Looking to wisdom as a guideline

Rising to the Challenge:
Being a successful entrepreneur means always rising to the challenge. Pretty much anyone can just start a business, but if they don’t rise to the challenge of leadership and do certain things to grow as individuals, they will never find success in their entrepreneurial ventures.
Looking to Wisdom:
Being an entrepreneur means always learning. If you want to learn more about yourself and grow in leadership, get married. If you want to grow even more, have kids. If you want to grow even more then that, you should start a business and have employees.
What Motivates You?
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or just an employee, it’s so important to ask yourself what is motivating you to do what you’re doing. Especially if you’re starting a business, you have to go down a couple of levels in order to find what really motivates you in order to make it through the tough times your business will throw at you.
