I am excited to welcome to the show Sean Castrina, an investor, entrepreneur, teacher, and highly-sought-after speaker who communicates with humor and a bluntness that engages and captures his audience. He lost his dream job 25 years ago and decided he would never be dependent on an employer again for his financial security. He became a millionaire by the age of 36. Sean achieved this by becoming a serial entrepreneur, having started more than 20 companies over the last 20 years and still seeks to launch a new venture annually.

 

Now, Sean devotes his time to equipping other entrepreneurs for success, authoring bestsellers like The Greatest Entrepreneur in the World and 8 Unbreakable Rules For Business Startup Success. His newest book, The World’s Greatest Business Plan, helps people by providing a simple step-by-step plan for those who cannot afford to fail. He’s been a contributing author to entities like Forbes, Inc., Yahoo! Finance, MSNBC, and more.

 

In today’s episode, Sean and I had a very spontaneous talk. From coming up with a realistic business plan to dissecting why startups tend to fail, Sean offers his insights and experiences that will definitely help you get a better point of view on entrepreneurship. Join us and get into the mind of a millionaire!
